Apple and Amazon, A Tale of Two Stocks...and Two Economies / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe government recently reported that the U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 2.2 percent, below the expected 2.5 percent rate. The jobless rate has declined, but mainly because so many job seekers have given up in their search for a job. The economic recovery, in other words, isn't as strong as it appears on the surface.

Small Uranium Stocks Tempt Major Players / Companies / Uranium

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors may still be holding their breath, but larger mining companies aren't waiting around for the price of uranium to go up. No, indeed, they are buying smaller companies on the cheap. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Equity Research Analyst Rob Chang of Versant Partners makes his case for deep value and discusses his favorite plays. With or without Germany and Japan, life goes on for uranium producers.

The Energy Report: Fourteen months after the fact, the biggest story in uranium is still the tsunami that struck Japan and destroyed four nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station. Japan is attempting to eradicate its dependency on nuclear energy. Are any plants still operating? Will all reactors be shut down in the near future?

IBM Proving That Value Investing Is Not A Form Of Market Timing / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Charles_Carnevale

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThroughout my career, I have often come across those who believe that value investing is a form of market timing. This misconception seems to be based on the notion that since a value investor determines the price above which they are not willing to pay for a stock, that they are in effect timing the market. The fallacy in this logic is that value investors are not concerned with price, they are concerned with valuation. Therefore, I offer this article as an attempt to clarify the differences between timing the market versus behaving as a value investor.

Does the "Showroom Effect" Spell Trouble for Amazon? / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Vail writes: Thanks to the "Showroom Effect," Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) and Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) have parted ways.

That means Amazon's hot new Kindle e-reader will no longer be found on the shelves of one of the biggest U.S. chain retailers.

The "Showroom Effect" is a phenomenon in which consumers use brick-and-mortar stores to test drive certain products before purchasing them online at a lower price.

Baidu Inc: High Priced or Good Value to Buy? / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Fast_Graphs

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBaidu Inc (BIDU) is most commonly referred to as the Chinese version of Google. Not unlike Google, Baidu Inc has generated an extraordinary record of earnings growth over its short history as a publicly traded company. Furthermore, even though Baidu Inc is trading at one of its lowest price earnings ratio as a public company it has still managed to provide shareholders with lavish returns. Finally, just like Google, the company's future earnings growth rate is expected to slow dramatically against the backdrop of its historical results. On the other hand, future earnings growth is still expected to be among the highest of any company you can find.

MF Global Implosion: Congressman Grimm Sends a Message / Companies / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my previous post, I quoted from MF Global's crisis plan, a document called "Stress Scenario Analysis -- Downgrade Potential Impact on MF Global." Work on that document began in January 2011, although it apparently wasn't completed until around 18 days before the bankruptcy. MF Global worried that it wouldn't have enough cash and liquid assets of its own to meet calls for collateral (margin calls), among other things, in the event of a ratings downgrade.

The Dividend Aristocrats Found The Lost Decade / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are many people who continue to hold a jaundiced view of stocks because they were traumatized by the last two recessions. Precipitous drops in equity prices drove them to distrust stocks and stock markets. However, I believe that most of the negative sentiment is a function of what I would describe as vague ideas about what really happened. A lot has to do with many investors failing to recognize, or make the important distinctions, that were the true causes of our last two market crashes.

By: Yiannis_G_Mostrous

Wild weather and a prolonged strike at its coalmines in Queensland, Australia exacted a toll on the world’s biggest miner, BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP). That said, there still was plenty of news to cheer investors.

BHP Billiton reported first-quarter 2012 production numbers, with iron as the brightest spot. Energy coal also was strong and copper remained flat. However, heavy rains and industrial action hit production of metallurgical (met) coal.

The ABCs of Picking Mining Stocks / Companies / Metals & Mining

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStick to physical metals, avoid mining stocks. That’s the conventional wisdom in global stock markets in spring 2012.

Mining companies’ stocks across the board have sunk to their biggest discount ever, to the price of the resources they produce. As many investors worry that slower growth in Asia could reduce demand for key minerals, these stocks could fall further.

Apple Stock Hopes to Turn Liquidmetal Into Gold / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) loves to think of lucrative new uses for other people's bright ideas.

For instance, the original iPod wouldn't have been possible without Toshiba's innovative 1.8-inch hard drive.

And when Steve Jobs learned about Gorilla Glass in 2006, he convinced Corning to revive the largely unused technology so Apple could put it in the iPhone.

Apple Stock Price Consolidating Gains / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Since it hit its post-earnings peak at a point-and-figure print of 618 (off of 555), let's notice that until a few minutes ago Apple (AAPL) was consolidaing its gains in a high-level area above 607.

However, the triple low at 607 was violated, and sure enough AAPL has followed-through to a print low at 604 so far, but could trade down to 598-596 prior to the conclusion of the corrective period, and my expectation of the emergence of another upleg.
