By: Money_Morning

Get Ahead of Semiconductor Industry Growth with These Seven Investments / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: The semiconductor industry struggled to maintain growth in 2011 - but that's starting to change.

How Safe Are America's Biggest Banks? / Companies / Credit Crisis 2011

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLost in the clamor over the central banks' "let there be liquidity" pronouncement, Standard & Poor's just downgraded fifteen major U.S. and European banks.

The downgrade doesn't mean Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Barclays, UBS, Wells Fargo and others will close shop tomorrow. But the long-term credit downgrade does raise questions about their stability.

Cheap Natural Gas Makes Old Technology Profitable / Companies / Natural Gas

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Although natural gas has become plentiful and cheap in the United States, using it in ways that would make it a practical alternative to petroleum, such as vehicle fuel, has proven challenging.

It's not that it can't be done. German scientists figured out how to convert natural gas to liquid petroleum products back in the mid-1920s.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMoney Morning staff reports writes: The Eurozone debt crisis has replaced the U.S. financial crisis as the disaster du jour. But make no mistake: U.S. taxpayers will be paying the tab for the U.S. crisis for years.

By: EconMatters

Pigs 'R' Us - The Wall Street Groupon IPO / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Jesse

And it is...

When I play cards with the little girls, they make up new rules on the fly and sometimes cheat outrageously, palming cards and sneaking money from my pile of coins, so that we all laugh about it. They know that I know, and that I am being tolerant. They enjoy sneaking up on me, and jumping out of cupboards and behind doors. And I always act surprised, but never am.

U.S. Defense Stocks Under Fire From Super Committee Budget Cuts / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Defense stocks have become collateral damage in the battle raging in Congress over how to reduce the deficit by $1.2 trillion over the next decade.

Any mix of cuts and tax increases will certainly include significant reductions in defense spending. And if the Congressional "super committee" fails to come up with a plan, an automatic "sequestration" will kick in, which calls for half of the money -- $600 billion - to come out of defense.

Global Systemic Crisis: Decimation of the Western Banks / Companies / Credit Crisis 2011

By: LEAP

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs anticipated by LEAP/E2020, the second half of 2011 is seeing the world continuing its unstoppable descent into global geopolitical dislocation characterized by the convergence of monetary, financial, economic, social, political and strategic crises. After 2010 and early 2011 which has seen the myth of a recovery and exit from the crisis shattered, it's now uncertainty that dominates the States’ decision-making processes just like businesses and individuals, inevitably generating increasing apprehension for the future. The context singularly lends itself: social explosions, political paralysis and / or instability, return to the global recession, fear over banks, currency war, the disappearance of more than ten trillion USD in ghost-assets in three months, widespread lasting and rising unemployment...

Intervening Pullback for Apple Stock / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

After a recovery of $12.75, or 3.4%, from Tuesday morning into early trading today, Apple (AAPL), as viewed on our intraday point-and-figure chart, is taking a breather. Based on my pattern and momentum work, any weakness off of this morning's high should be considered an intervening pullback prior to the resumption of strength that propels AAPL to 398-402 thereafter.
