Greenberg said, "It was that guy Sacha Barry Cohen, or whatever his name is...Yeah, he was impersonating Sandy. I know Sandy."

Facebook is Only Worth $7.50 a Share / Companies / Tech Stocks

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: The technorati took me to task. So did Wall Street.

They were agitated by an article I wrote in May explaining why the world's most hotly anticipated IPO, Facebook (Nasdaq:FB), was worth a mere $7.50 a share at best.

"Out of touch," one of the critics said. A "luddite" charged another.

Investing in Central Utility Stocks - Do Today’s Valuations Make Sense? / Companies / US Utilities

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is the third in my series on investing in utility stocks based on the sector’s current valuation levels. The series was initially inspired by concerns that utility stocks may be overvalued because they had recently performed very well.  When the series first started with Part 1, utility ETF’s were showing the best one-year performance of any sector. By the second installment Part 2, the utility sector had fallen into second place (Utility Sector Performance July 31, 2012). Since that time, utilities have fallen into fifth place with year-to-date performance of only 3.8% (see Utility Sector Performance August 3, 2012 below), this could be an indication that utilities are reaching full value.

Investing in Western Utility Stocks - Do Today’s Valuations Make Sense? / Companies / US Utilities

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn part 1 of this series on utilities published on July 26, 2012, we looked at the utility sector with a broad brush. In this part 2, we will focus on utilities located in the western part of the United States. The series was inspired because of the apparent general impression that utility stocks are overvalued.

This impression stems from the fact that utilities have been the best performing sector over the past year.  Therefore, people automatically assume that because an asset class has risen in price, that it must also be overvalued. However, if they have risen from previously undervaluation levels, this may not be the case. The following comparison of the performance of US ETF’s by sector first reported in part 1 on July 26, 2012, illustrates their recent outperformance.

Exxon - If You Cant Produce Oil, Sell Assets / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe second-quarter results for Exxon, which was the world's biggest company by market capitalization until Apple moved into that slot, confirm a stack of trends in world energy and the global economy. Exxon Mobil is still the world’s biggest oil company by market value, even if its combined oil and gas reserves are now minuscule relative to those of a long list of both OPEC and NOPEC national oil companies. Its de facto shift, like the other "historic oil majors" to the refining downstream, energy trading, non-energy activities - and gas production and the hunt for global natural gas resources - makes Exxon highly vulnerable to the global economy's performance, and to falling oil prices.

LinkedIn Shares Poised to Drop / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast night Zynga tanked, dragging down Facebook with it. There’s been a lot of hype regarding everything social, but not exactly a lot of follow through regarding earnings. Recently a new member of our team here at TTT, Brennan Basnicki, put out a fundamental piece on LinkedIn that I think merits a good readover as it is applicable to many of the high flying tech stocks we’ve seen get absolutely crushed lately. Further, if we look at some more of the fundamentals and technical indicators I think we may have found a prime shorting candidate.

Tech Stocks to Invest in For the Next 10 Years / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleG.S. Early writes: During the great Dotcom days, analysts were fond of saying that "growth is the new income." Back then, tech stocks were all the rage.

Some even went as far to say that if a tech stock didn't have a triple digit price/earnings ratio, it wasn't worth buying. There were even 70 year-olds at the time who bragged about the optical networking stocks they owned - but couldn't program the clock on their VCRs.

Time to SELL Overvalued Utility Stocks / Companies / US Utilities

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, I’ve come across several discussions by dividend growth investors as to whether the utility sector is overvalued or not today.  Therefore, I decided to look into the sector’s relative valuation as a whole to see what I could find. The only way to efficiently conduct this kind of research is to rely on a broad statistical array utilizing traditional valuation metrics.

However, before I report my findings there are some caveats and clarifications that I feel are very appropriate.  First and foremost, I believe that any time you attempt to make broad generalizations about anything; you are by definition applying a great injustice to it.  In other words, painting all utilities with the same broad brush is analogous to holding a prejudicial view of human beings based on attributes such as race, creed or color. This is neither rational, nor fair.

How to Boost Your Income in a World Where a Six Figure Salary No Longer Cuts It / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: It may sound impressive, but a $100,000 salary isn't all it's cracked up to be. What would have cost you $100,000 in 1976 would cost you a whopping $380,000 today.

And that's just adjusting for inflation...

In fact, to get the same benefit from a "six-figure salary" that you would've earned in yesteryear, you'd need to make about $250,000 today.

Why Windows 8 Made Me Sell Microsoft Stock / Companies / Microsoft

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

I sang love serenades to Microsoft in the December issue, but a few weeks ago we sold our shares of Microsoft. Because we believe the stock is undervalued, that decision was not easy. What changed? A very important part of my thesis was the success of Windows 8, an operating system that Microsoft made for both PCs and tablets. When I saw Windows 8 demonstrated in early 2011, it looked like a very innovative, un-Microsoft-like product. Windows 8 was very important for Microsoft’s response to Apple’s iPad — a tablet that was deservingly stealing market share from low-end laptops. Windows 8 was supposed to take Microsoft to the next level, leapfrogging Apple and Google.

Using Options to Trade Apple AAPL Corporate Earnings News / Companies / Options & Warrants

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTrading stock around the times of earnings releases is a notoriously difficult operation because it requires accurate prediction of the direction of price movement. Wrong predictions can expose the trader to substantial loss if large unexpected moves occur against his position.

Because of the risk associated with these events, many traders use options to define their risk and protect their trading capital. The purpose of my missive today is to present several approaches to using options to capture profits during the earnings cycle and to help present the logic and call attention to a major potential pitfall of using these vehicles in this specific situation.

To many investors, that may seem counterintuitive. After all, natural gas has been the red-headed stepchild of energy for years.

But prices for this plentiful alternative fuel are just beginning to turn higher after a four-year slide that saw values slashed by more than 80%.

Six Dividend Stocks to Hold Forever / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Investor. Now there's a word you don't hear much these days. "Buy and hold," they tell us, has gone the way of the dinosaur.

Today, it's all about the fast money. In the market, out of the market... this stock, that stock...

Of course, that's perfectly fine for traders. The good ones earn small fortunes that way. But for folks who don't have that kind of experience, being nimble is simply an invitation to be whipsawed by the markets.
