Will The Internet Play An Increasing Role In Corporate Governance? / Companies / Corporate News

By: Submissions

Ian R. Campbell writes: I received an e-mail a few days ago from a Stock Research Portal subscriber who obviously had spent time researching my work history and reading my daily commentaries.  His e-mail dealt with the proposed Plan of Arrangement (the 'Plan') announced March 14 pursuant to which Century Mining Corp. ('Century') shareholders would exchange their shares for shares of White Tiger Gold Ltd. ('White Tiger').  About the Plan, he said:  "We as minor shareholders need some credible press on this and since I have been reading your writing for a couple years, I trust you to take a real look past the surface, at the truth.  Ian, its not right, its not fair and I am trying to do something about it, will you help".

A Crack in the Great Wall-Mart: China Inflation, Watch Out for Rising Prices / Companies / Inflation

By: Jason_Kaspar

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a widely covered interview last Wednesday, the CEO of Wal-Mart, Bill Simon, warned that “U.S. consumers face ‘serious’ inflation in the months ahead for clothing, food and other products.” He noted: "We're seeing cost increases starting to come through at a pretty rapid rate."  Given his purview, I accept Simon’s opinion as positively disconcerting, and if inflation is to hit home in the heartland of America, it will certainly begin at Wal-Mart.

Don't Let 'Zombie Banks' Terrorize Your Portfolio / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: In February 2009, I examined the top 12 U.S. banks and gave a generally bullish outlook for them, pointing out that at a fraction of net asset value, their shares were mostly good bargains.

Only a few banks had longer-term problems because of the poor qualities of their loan portfolios. I termed those "zombie banks," and warned that they might not emerge from public ownership.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: U.S. companies have started to spend their record high piles of cash, but most won't be using it to boost hiring.

Since the credit crisis, U.S. companies have collected about $940 billion in cash. Per-share profit surged 36% in 2010, the biggest jump since 1988, and companies cut capital expenditures 26% in 2009 to compensate for the ailing economy.

Is it time to Buy Google? / Companies / Google

By: readtheticker

Some time ago I caught Reggie Middleton of BoomBustBlog.com on TV saying he was very bullish on Google (GOOG). The prime reason behind this was Google dominant positioning within the mobile advertising market via it acquisition of Admob (Androids mobile OS). Ok we believe him, but we required GOOG to sell off to let us in at a decent price. We have a sell off, but should we buy.

Excellent Investment Opportunities In Nuclear And Uranium Stocks / Companies / Uranium

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's an old saying in investing: Buy a winter coat in the summer. Uranium stocks are certainly out of season and deeply discounted. Media coverage has shifted from the destruction of the earthquake to the negative aspects of nuclear energy. Nothing puts fear into the public more than green men in radiation outfits. The media has taken this opportunity to capitalize on the fear of the masses. This has resulted in devastating sell-offs in the uranium mining sector such as in uranium (Global X Uranium ETF (URA)) and nuclear energy ETFs (Market Vectors Uranium+Nuclear Energy ETF (NLR)), which has seen its most severe decline in its short history.

That trembler, coupled with the devastating tsunami that followed, ignited a flurry of fears and caused a two-day sell-off that sent Japanese stocks down 17%. The sell-off wiped out more than $650 billion in shareholder wealth.

Healthcare Stocks Taking Off as Tech Companies Tumble / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman wrtes: Technology and commodities companies have been among the hardest hit over the past few weeks, as major players move from cyclical stocks to more defensive areas like healthcare stocks.

In the technology sector, the worst of the sell-off has been in the optical stocks. That's a shame because many of these stocks finally looked like they were on the verge of emerging from long bear markets. But the optical stocks - so popular during the tech bubble - were kicked in the head whenFinisar Corp.(Nasdaq: FNSR) issued a very weak outlook for its April quarter.

Meanwhile, hile solars of all stripes are running to the moon as a wave of solar projects surely will begin in earnest in weeks. ;) Boo yah hot money....

Amazon Threatened by Sales Tax Dilemma / Companies / Corporate News

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: If state legislatures across the country get their way, Amazon.com Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AMZN) 16-year holiday from collecting sales tax will come to an end - with unpleasant consequences for the online retailer.

The U.S. Supreme Court in 1992 established that only retailers with a physical presence (called "nexus") in a given state are required to collect a sales tax from their patrons. But with state budgets being squeezed, more and more legislatures are trying to rope in online retailers - especially Amazon, a company that was specifically engineered to profit from the Supreme Court's ruling.
