Is Groupon the Next Enron? / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald, Chief Investment Strategist, Money Morning writes: Is Groupon the next Enron? ... No. It's worse.

Before the company even went public, there were signs that internal financial controls weren't up to snuff.

Now I'm hearing refrains of "three blind mice" as investors line up to have their day in court. You might as well say the "dog ate my homework."

Eye on Apple and Amazon Stocks / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Despite today's downgrade by BTIG, the reactive weakness so far has NOT inflicted any meaningful damage to the overall Apple (AAPL) Point & Figure chart structure. To inflict preliminary damage, the stock must press to a PF print of 623, which should trigger downside continuation to test much more meaningful PF support at 619. A print of 618 will trigger near term sell signals, and WILL represent a near term PF top in AAPL.

Adobe Systems (NSDQ: ADBE): On the Fast Track to Growth / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 2000 technology bust and subsequent collapse of the high-flying Nasdaq left many investors with the perception that technology is a high-risk, volatile sector that’s only appropriate for the most aggressive growth investors.

That sentiment is downright anachronistic. The S&P 500 Information Technology Index has a beta of 0.96 over the past five years; indexes with betas lower than 1.0 are less volatile than the broader market. More important, technology stocks have outperformed the broader market by a sizable margin despite their below-average risk. (See “Tech Sector Shines.”)

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), electricity generated by coal was down more than 20% in 2011. So it's no surprise that U.S. coal producers have been hit, and their valuations stand at 15-year lows.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: Big drugmakers are scrambling.

Right now, some of their most-lucrative blockbuster drugs are coming "off patent" - meaning they face the loss of $170 billion in annual sales.

But I'm going to let you in on a secret that Wall Street investment pros hope the little guy never learns: The very same problem that has Big Pharma execs wringing their hands even as you read this is also creating one of the biggest profit opportunities we've seen in years.

If You Think All Utility Stocks Are The Same - Think Again / Companies / US Utilities

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have recently seen comments on articles oriented to the dividend growth investor where people were suggesting that in general, utilities have recently become overvalued. Further discussion indicated that this was probably due to the fact that bond yields were so low that people were flocking to stable utility stocks in lieu of bonds therefore driving utility stock prices to abnormal highs. This article is primarily designed to take a more specific look at whether or not utility stocks as an asset class are currently overvalued. Secondarily, it is offered to expose the fallacy of thinking in generalities rather than more specifically.

CACI Stock - Growth at a Ridiculously Low Price / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Fast_Graphs

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor 50 years CACI International Inc (CACI) has been serving America by providing in-demand services and solutions for our most vital missions for defense, intelligence, homeland security, and IT government modernization.  Moreover, the company has consistently outgrown the government’s defense budget because of its emphasis on higher growth areas of government services needed to defend our country.  Also, because of the sensitive nature of the services that are provided through contracts ranging from 3 to 5 years, we believe the company possesses a very strong moat.  The majority of CACI’s employees hold high-security clearances that provide natural barriers to entry against outsiders attempting to impinge on their turf.

Five Undervalued Dividend Paying Retail Stocks / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe believe the retail sector is currently a mixed bag where some of the best names are currently too pricey to buy. Retailers such as Costco (COST), Ross Stores (ROST) and T.J. Maxx (TJX) have seen their share prices skyrocket over the last year or so. On the other hand, not all leading retailers have followed suit even when their operating results have been comparable. We have identified five well-known and even leading retailers that offer attractive valuation, good dividend yields and the opportunity for double-digit total returns over the next five years.

The Truth About Corporate Earnings and How Forecasting Earnings is the Key to Success / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn part one of this two-part series on the importance of earnings I focused on the historical relationship between earnings and market price utilizing cyclical companies to illustrate the validity of my thesis.  In this part two, I am going to focus on how since we learned from the past how important and highly correlated the earnings and price relationship is, that it only logically follows that future results will also be a function of future earnings achievements.  Therefore, I confidently state that forecasting future earnings is the key to long-term investing success.

An ETF for Latest Boom in Tech Stocks: Technology Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Benjamin_Shepherd

As the broader markets turn in a stellar performance, technology has been far and away one of the hottest sectors. That’s driven a huge 17.5 percent gain in Technology Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLK), just in the first quarter of 2012 alone.

Although highly commoditized, the semiconductor industry has been the top-performing industry group in the Technology Select Sector’s portfolio, with Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), LSI Corp (NYSE: LSI) and Micron Technology (NYSE: MU) all gaining on average about 40 percent so far this year.

Outperform the Stock Market with Covered Call Options / Companies / Options & Warrants

By: Jim_Fink

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday’s rock-bottom interest rates and overpriced financial assets have created a low-return investment world that requires proactive yield-enhancement techniques such as covered calls, to generate the additional investment rate of return needed to retire comfortably.

Selling covered calls generates additional income and lowers the break-even cost basis of stock you already own, thus reducing the downside risk of stock ownership at all price points.

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVedran Vuk, Casey Research : In the infamous case of the Goldman Sachs Abacus 2007 AC-1 fund, it doesn't take a whole lot to figure out the wrongdoing. Paulson & Co., a multibillion-dollar hedge fund, helped select the mortgage-backed securities held by Abacus while at the same time, Paulson was planning on shorting it. This was all unbeknownst to Abacus buyers, since Goldman Sachs conveniently left out the details of Abacus' creators and their bet against the fund in the investment marketing materials. Ultimately, the case was settled for $550 million.

Investing in Water Stocks: Three Names to Buy Right Now / Companies / Water Sector

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Vail writes: You've no doubt heard about the building scarcity of water. It's the reason savvy shareholders have been busy investing in water stocks.

Here's why.

Water may be everywhere but only 3% of it is fresh or suitable for drinking. Two-thirds of that is locked in glaciers and polar icecaps, which means less than 1% of the world's fresh water is available for human use.
