Apple Clever Business Strategy—But Is It Clever Enough? / Companies / Apple

By: John_Mauldin

Back when I was in business school, the PC manufacturers were go-go football stocks. Bull market, dude.

There was Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Compaq, and Gateway, which used to sell its computers in a Holstein cow-pattern box. Apple was making Macs but had a much smaller market share than it does today.

Retirees: I Did Not Buy IBM to Sell, It’s About The Dividend Income Stupid / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

There are many investing strategies and principles that retired investors can utilize to reduce the risk associated with investing in equities (stocks) for their retirement portfolios.  Choosing to invest in the highest quality stocks your mind can conceive sits at the top of the list.  There are many components that investors can analyze and examine to determine whether a company is high quality or not.

The primary determinant of high quality is superior financial strength.  Financially strong companies possess the staying power and resources to weather the occasional bad storms that will inevitably occur.  Every business will on occasion face challenges and difficulties.  Meeting those challenges requires a strong balance sheet and an adaptive and competent management team to guide the company across troubled waters.

Wal-Mart Symbol of U.S. Economic Condition / Companies / Retail Sector

By: BATR

Whether you love it or hate it, Wal-Mart is a goliath among giants. It employs 1.4 Million Americans or 1% of the work force. As a gauge of economic activity, financial analyses weigh the performance, sales and consumer attitudes closely. So with the historic stock crash of 10% in one trading day and 22% overall, quite a lot of attention was reported. Most noteworthy comes from The Street; Did Wal-Mart’s CEO Just Drop a Major Bombshell?

By: Sol_Palha

A sign on the door of Opportunity reads Push. - Anonymous

The financial sector has pulled back nicely during the market sell off in August, setting up a nice opportunity for the contrarian player.  The masses are fixating on whether or not the Fed will raise interest rates by a minuscule 0.25%.

Transformational Technology - The “Age” Age / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: John_Mauldin

As I mentioned in last week’s letter, I traveled to San Francisco last Monday with my friend Patrick Cox, who writes our Transformational Technology Alert newsletter. We had dinner with Dr. Mike West of Biotime and then spent the next morning at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging. Pat and I decided we would jointly report on what we learned. He has already written his part, which was published last week. I am going to reproduce portions of that letter, which highlight the conversation with Brian Kennedy and his team at the Buck Institute, and then add my own thoughts about our conversation with Mike West the previous night.

By: Casey_Research

By Justin Spittler

One of Casey Research's biggest calls this year is paying off…

In early August, E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, told subscribers how to profit from the world’s oversupply of oil.

How Can Bank of America Drive Better Efficiency? / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America, spoke with Bloomberg TV’s Erik Schatzker about the bank's earnings and performance.

Moynihan said that the efficiency ratio should be 500 BPS lower and the company has a plan to get it there. When asked about how he will do it, Moynihan said: "The headcount will come down because there were 60 percent people costs. There's not enough other costs to save a lot of money, but question is how you do that."

For Corporations And Hedge Funds, The Next Recession Is Already Here / Companies / Recession 2015

By: John_Rubino

Wal-Mart just announced flat year-over-year sales, causing its shares to fall by 9% and wiping $20 billion from its market cap. Which would be unremarkable if the disappointment was an aberration. But it’s not. Earnings season is off to a brutal start, with big names announcing big misses all over the place. Meanwhile, the rare good numbers are mostly the result of blatant (and therefore ineffective) financial engineering. Some examples:

Forget the Yield Curve- Banks Stocks Are a Bargain / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Sol_Palha

A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds. - Francis Bacon

The press is giving too much credence to the effect an interest rate hike would have on the markets and on the financial sector. First of all, the fact that the Fed has been debating whether or not to raise rates by a paltry meaningless 0.25 basis points speaks volumes. The Fed clearly understands that this recovery is nothing but smoke and mirrors; the main driving force behind being hot money.

VW's Scandal Comes at a Bad Time For Germany / Companies / Germany

By: Rodney_Johnson

The German economy has been nothing if not impressive. In the face of ugly economic circumstances across Europe, this country held fast to fiscal discipline while staying on track with exports. Hence, Germany ran budget surpluses for the last three years and has a cost of capital so low that its bond yields rival that of Japan.

Then, out of nowhere, comes a claim of corporate cheating that rocked iconic Volkswagen, the “People’s Car” company, maker of the famous Beetle.

Glencore Rout Blamed on Short Sellers Playing With CDS / Companies / Metals & Mining

By: Bloomberg

John Mack, director at Glencore and former CEO of Morgan Stanley, joined hosts Stephanie Ruhle and David Westin on Bloomberg TV's new flagship morning program, Bloomberg <GO>. He spoke about the stability of Glencore amid the global selloff in commodities.  He also discussed why he is bullish on China, 2008 and responsibility for malfeasance at financial firms, and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Mack said fund managers shorting shares of Glencore and playing with credit-default swaps were responsible for recent volatility: “You have fund managers who short the stock, play with the CDS; that’s exactly what happened during the crisis.  I mean, that’s fine for them to do that.  That creates a lot of volatility."
