Extraordinary Technology, Robotics - Where Are We Today? / Companies / Technology

By: Doug_Horning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Hornig, Editor, Casey’s Extraordinary Technology writes: In the field of robotics, we have no Newton. No one who, assisted by a falling fruit, cried out, “Eureka, I have it, and it is called a… I know… a robot.”

No, the concept of a robot first occurred to some unknown person in some far distant time, as he or she, engaged in a grinding, repetitive task, dreamed of a mechanical contrivance that could do some of the dirty work. We know that moment was more than five hundred years ago, because we have sketchbooks from the incomparable Leonardo da Vinci, dated 1495, that contain detailed plans for one.

NetFlix, Butterflies and Option Expiration / Companies / Options & Warrants

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“I love the smell of napalm in the morning” Lt Col Bill Kilgore, Apocalypse Now

One of the opportunities available to the knowledgeable options trader is the ability to capitalize on major price movements while maintaining an acceptable risk profile. These opportunities are particularly attractive when they occur late in the options cycle because of the rapidly accelerating decay of the time premium of options. In appropriately structured positions, this time decay can be a wind at your back as the time premium relentlessly goes to zero at the closing bell on options expiration Friday.

Could Disaster Be Brewing Inside These Popular ETFs? / Companies / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI feel it's our duty here at Smart Investing Daily not only to help you discover new and unique investment opportunities and tactics, but also to warn you of impending potential disasters.

Looking at the financial markets on the surface, many experts are saying that it seems a little "overbought." There is no doubt I am in that camp, but now I am gaining more conviction. Experts use things like price/earnings multiples and technical formations to make these determinations. They also look at the past to make future forecasts.

Stock Price Recovery Rallies for GM, Ford / Companies / US Auto's

By: Mike_Paulenoff

General Motors (GM) and Ford (F) present very different near-term chart structures, with GM exhibiting a more constructive near term pattern than Ford. Nonetheless, both names are in different phases of recovery rallies off of their early February lows.

Reviewing the 60-minute comparison chart on both, we see that Ford's Jan double-top at 18.97 and 18.88 ended the upleg off of the June 29 low at 9.75. Ford has come off the Feb 3 low at 15.10 and is flagging in the mid-15 range.

More Mega-Deals to Come as M&A Activity Returns to Pre-Crisis Levels / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: A flurry of early-year deal making has helped drive global mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity to its highest level since before the financial crisis. And the M&A market still hasn't hit full stride.

Cash rich companies and greater confidence in the overall economy are two big reasons for the turnaround. But international, cross-border deals have offered another catalyst for the spectacular growth.

China's Trade Surplus Goal Signals Time Investors Danced With the Dragon / Companies / Investing 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: China's economic model has long been dependent on exports. Over the past several decades, the country has been the world's manufacturing floor, turning the "Made in China" stamp into a common fixture of goods sold in the United States and Europe.

But now China has made a new goal: It will double its imports by 2015, reducing the trade surplus to zero and releasing itself from an export-reliant economy. Beijing this year made this goal a key part of China's 12th Five Year Plan.

Crude Oil Stocks Investing / Companies / Oil Companies

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2010, some of the best-performing companies in the E&P space transitioned to a heavier focus on oil, which has been strong, and away from natural gas where prices are weak. That trend is likely to continue this year, according to Rodman & Renshaw Senior Analysts Jeff Hayden and Chad Mabry who remain bullish, even though they're not betting on sustained prices above $100/Bbl. In this exclusive interview with The Energy Report, Jeff and Chad bring some growth and value ideas into sharp focus.

Opportunity in the Rejuvenation of Canada's Iron Ore Sector / Companies / Metals & Mining

By: HRA_Advisory

The Iron Ages began over three thousand years ago and a major expansion of iron's use is the earliest of waypoints on the road to industrialization. The market for iron is far larger than that of the other heavy metals and it is essential for creating our modern network of bridges and skyscrapers. Despite this, the metal is not the stuff of daily news like "Dr." copper. The heavy growth in Asia generated a massive expansion of global iron ore production in the last decade.

New Upmove for U.S. Steel / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The correction in U.S. Steel (NYSE: X) from the Feb 4 high at 61.40 likely ended at last Thursday's low of 56.35, and a new upmove has emerged within the larger upleg off of the October low at 39.78.

In addition, we can still view the past 10 months as a large, double-bottom pattern that broke out to the upside above 52.00 in December and still points to 65.00 to fulfill its optimal upside target.

Global Investing 2011, Five Foreign Revenue Stocks That Will Boost Your Profits / Companies / Investing 2011

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes:"Globalization" has become one of the top financial buzzwords in recent years - and with good reason. The economies of many developing-market countries have achieved an important critical mass, meaning they're now growing a lot faster than much more-"mature" counterparts as the United States, Europe and Japan.

The upshot: Investors who ignore these opportunities in favor of a "U.S.-only" investment regimen face a future marked by lackluster returns.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: It was another good week for U.S. stocks, despite the whipsaw-trading that resulted from alternating good news/bad news/good news developments on the earnings and geopolitical fronts throughout the week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.5% for the week, while the Standard & Poor's 500 Index advanced 1.4%. The tech-laden Nasdaq Composite Index only managed to edge up by 0.7%, having been held back by Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO).

Huffington Post Alone Won’t Rescue AOL, A Case Study into Failure / Companies / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecently, I reminded readers of a very lucrative (and what I felt was a very obvious) long-short equity strategy I discussed that would have yielded huge returns to those who opted to take on this risky maneuver.  

I normally don’t recommend that everyday investors take short positions because it’s extremely risk for many reasons. Most non-professional investors fail to recognize the risks involved with shorting securities because taking a short position is just a mouse click away if you have an online brokerage account. That in itself is an entirely different issue that needs to be addressed by the SEC.

Russian Banks Earned Record Profits in 2010 / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Pravda

2010 was a successful year for Russian banks. Their profit in 2010 made up 573.4 billion rubles, which was three times as much as in 2009. Experts believe that such a growth has been achieved owing to the recovery of the reserves created during the crisis. Nevertheless, banks continue to accumulate reserves for their further work in 2011.

Completed Pullback for Silver Wheaton / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My near-term work indicates strongly that Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW) ended a minor pullback at 33.60 off of yesterday's rally peak at 35.55. If accurate, this means that a new upleg is in its infancy and will extend the larger upmove from the Jan 25 low at 28.85 -- initially towards a test of 35.40/55 resistance (the 50 DMA and yesterday's high) and then to test the Dec-Jan resistance line, now at 36.75.
