Lessons for High Yield Stock Market Investments 2008 / Stock-Markets / Dividends

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's still one trading day left in 2007. But for income investors, the key lessons from what was quite a tumultuous year are already in focus, as is how we can use them for a prosperous 2008.

Once again, diversification paid off in spades. Some dividend-paying investments such as utility stocks were huge winners. More economy-sensitive fare like financial's and most real estate investment trusts were losers. But a balanced portfolio of a wide range of high-quality income-payers held its own, generating steady income with low overall volatility of principal.

Stock Market Update: Work Ethic of an Unbiased Trader / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dominick

I hope you had an enjoyable, restful holiday week. But, if you're like me you've been looking forward to the end of these shortened weeks and can't wait to get back to some heavy volume trading! Friday's close left the immediate term outlook very muddled with many different patterns still viable, but as usual we're content to show up day after day to trade whatever the market offers. All the ambiguity of the current setup means is that anyone who now says they know exactly what will happen next is probably wrong!

Stock and Investment Markets Outlook for 2008 / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGazing into the crystal ball for investing in 2008 - Cash may be king for the moment but financial experts favour a plunge back into equity markets later in the year

A 'YEAR of fear' for portfolio investors - or a time of great opportunity? This is the question The Business Times put to a panel of financial experts as 2007 draws to a close. Their answers contained some surprises. Cash may be king for the moment, in the immediate aftermath of the US sub-prime mortgage crisis, and the worst is yet to come in equity markets.

Current Stock Market Conditions from both a Dow Theory and a Cyclical Perspective / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I'm sure you all know, I have been saying for quite some time that the equity markets have been operating within one of the longest 4-year cycles in stock market history. This is not some hollow or shallow opinion in which I'm letting the wish father the thought. In reality, I wish that I could tell you the 4-year cycle low is behind us, because that would certainly make my job much easier as that is what the majority of the public seem to want to believe. In any event, I do not align myself with popular opinion to make my job easier. Rather, my opinion is based strictly on statistical analysis and very specific indicators. As we move into 2008, the statistics nor the indicators have changed in regard to this matter. Therefore, my opinion continues to be that the 4-year cycle low still lies ahead.

Stock Markets Weaken as Credit Crisis Hits Earnings / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCitigroup is now expected to cut its dividend by 40%. Moreover, management is now expected to increase its estimated write-offs from $11 billion to $18.7 billion. Citi's CEO, Charles Prince lost his job, but not all the fat bonuses he'd collected in previous years.

Merrill Lynch is forecast by Goldman Sachs analysts to have an $11.5 billion write-off this quarter. That's after an $7.9 billion hit and a 94% loss in revenues in the third quarter . Merrill's ex-CEO, Stan O'Neal left with $161 million in his back pocket.

FTSE 100 Index 2008 UK Stock Market Forecast 2008 / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoom and Gloom pervades the UK economy as we enter into 2008, which is 'usually' an excellent atmosphere for stocks, especially if that doom and gloom to date has not resulted in anything other than corrections. Not even the crash in the financial sector that has seen many big banks fall by as much as 50% off their 2007 highs has managed to dent the FTSE 100 Index with barely registerable declines on the long-run FTSE 100 chart.

Speculation is rife of a high risk of a recession for the UK economy during 2008. However the last analysis in this current series for 2008 on UK GDP growth concluded with the opinion that despite early year weakness the UK economy will avoid a recession, this coupled with falling interest rates will be supportive of the UK stock market during 2008.

EXIT 2007: A Year of Denials of the Bad Loans Credit Crisis and Inflation / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe spirit of the holiday should not be denied despite the mayhem building at an unstoppable clip. For a break, enjoy a cute HOLIDAY SONG with touch of class & soul, even a hint of the Derbingle (Bing Crosby), with a promise of pure good taste (click here ).

Wall Street is in deep sneakers. They are busy putting a positive spin on 2007, which in mid-year unleashed the beginning of an unstoppable nightmare. The first cracks were revealed in gory fashion in the form of subprime mortgages blasting fissures through the entire bank and bond system. The next cracks will blossom into a mindboggling series of shocks next year.

Electrifying America : Social Meanings of a New Technology - Book review / Stock-Markets / Energy Resources

By: Joseph_Dancy

Commonly taken for granted in today's society, a century ago the electrification of modern lighting and home and industrial activities was cutting edge technology. Other than those brief periods when an ice storm or summer thundershower disrupts service, few tend to remember how extensive and relatively recent the changes in our lives that electricity has provided.

Financial Markets in Denial of Collapsing Credit Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ECB just lent out an astounding half $Trillion worth of money to 390 banks in only one day this week. It was to combat the lending freeze in Europe where banks are refusing to lend to each other over concerns about the mortgage losses this year. The demand was so high it caused alarm.

The question that comes to mind is, ‘Hey, we have a first class financial emergency here, when are the stock markets going to react accordingly?'

China Infrastructure Growth: It's Not About Beijing 2008 Olympics / Stock-Markets / China Economy

By: Chip_Hanlon

Stop it! Please just stop.

I saw it yet again yesterday: another commentator talked about how China 's economy should keep chugging along through the 2008 Olympics in Beijing , particularly its appetite for commodities due to its infrastructure needs ahead of that event. Sometimes I hear it said that the trend might last through 2010 and the World Expo in Shanghai for similar reasons.

Stock Markets Entering Strongest Seasonal Period - 2008 Presidential Year Cycle Strength / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

During the 3 rd year of the Presidential Cycle it has been up 95% of the time. 1987 was the only down year.

Short Term - Seasonal considerations overwhelm everything else in the short term.

Stock Markets Extremely Undervalued Under the IBES Valuation Model / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo tectonic plates and “The Big One” - We've all heard it before: The next major depression is expected to begin sometime around 2011-2012 and continue its ravaging impact until about 2014-2016. This belief has become so accepted among cycle theorists as to be almost a type of gospel.

And based on a purely deterministic interpretation of the K-wave and long-term Kress cycles, this outcome would make sense. Some persuasive arguments of this theory have even been advanced from a demographic perspective (see “The Next Great Bubble Boom” by Harry Dent and “Baby Boomers, Generation X and Social Cycles” by Edward Cheung, for example).

Silent Stock Market Crash in the Banking Sector / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

There weren't many voices last weekend calling for a bullish reversal and rally in stocks. Come to think of it, were there any besides TTC at all? It seems that once again, just as in about the last dozen or so major market turns, this newsletter was alone in championing a bullish count while the entire online analysis community grew increasingly bearish and insisted the top was in. Now as a strong finish to the week puts us back within about 70 points of the all-time highs, bears are again forced to rethink their positions in the face of a market that threatens to grind higher through year-end and could still potentially explode upwards.

Pop Go the Liquidity Bubbles / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:

  • Pop Go the Bubbles
  • Lights for Myanmar, Water for Darfur
  • A Half A Trillion Here and There
  • Consumer Spending is Up? Wait, Is It Down?
  • The Presidential Race
  • Family, Christmas, and Home

Consumer spending was much stronger than thought in November, yet Circuit City Stores Inc., Best Buy Co. and other retailers that warned of a slump in purchases. A private report today showed consumer confidence slid to the lowest level in more than two years in December. The stock market chooses to see all things bullish, and so it powers ever upward. This week we take a brief look at the consumer, recent "shock and awe" central bank actions, money supply and more, trying to see how it all fits together.

Real Estate Pro's Head for the Exit as Bush Asks Banks to "Come Clean" on Losses / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. housing recession has worsened since the credit collapse in August. Because of it, economic growth will slow to an approximate 1% annualized rate in the fourth quarter, according to estimates given by economists to Bloomberg News . President George W. Bush said he's concerned about the housing slump dragging on the economy and said financial institutions must be open about how much they may lose because of the collapse of the subprime mortgage market.
