Rodney Johnson: Time For Retailers to Panic? / Companies / Retail Sector

By: Rodney_Johnson

By most accounts, holiday retail sales were a letdown. While retail sales climbed 3.3% over November and December, stores reported a 6.4% drop in foot traffic. So even though people might have spent a bit more, they were choosy in where they spent.

When customers spend less, companies earn less, affecting the bottom line. This relationship is on display at companies like Macy’s, which warned that sales were off 4.7% in November and December. The company plans to close stores and lay off thousands of workers. The same story is unfolding at Gap.

Lockheed Martin’s F-35 Lightning II Boondoggle / Companies / US Military

By: Stephen_Lendman

At an estimated lifetime development, production, operational and maintenance cost of $2 trillion or more (adjusted for inflation), the F-35 perhaps most of all symbolizes notorious Pentagon waste, fraud and abuse - ripping off taxpayers, using the nation’s resources irresponsibly, at the expense of vital homeland needs.

Pentagon hype calls the F-35 “a 5th Generation fighter, combining advanced stealth with fighter speed and agility, fully fused sensor information, network-enabled operations and advanced sustainment” - for Army, Navy and Marine Corps use, as well as for selected allies.

Small Business Indicators For Microcap Sector Choices / Companies / Investing 2016

By: Submissions

Alfidi Capital writes: Microcap stocks are notoriously hard nuts to crack. They are the part of the capitalization-weighted investment universe that is typically less liquid, transparent, and profitable than large-cap choices. Investors do have some indicators they can use to estimate turning points in the microcap sector's aggregate health. A small number of microcap ETFs help diversify away company-specific risk.

Xerox - CEO Future Role, Icahn's Involvement, and Company's Debt / Companies / Corporate News

By: Bloomberg

Xerox Chairman & CEO Ursula Burns spoke with Stephanie Ruhle and David Westin on Bloomberg TV's "Bloomberg <GO>" to discuss that in an agreement with investor Carl Icahn, Xerox will split into two publicly traded companies.

Fortunately when we did speak to him, as you know he's a large holder of our shares, he agreed with the outcome we reached."

On Icahn's involvement going forward, Burns added: "On a go-forward basis he will be involved from a perspective when the company separates into two; he will have some governance input into the services business. Will not be engaged with the document technology business or with current Xerox business at all."

The End Is Near, Apple's Revenue 'Falls Off A Cliff' / Companies / Apple

By: John_Rubino

One by one the pillars of the recovery are toppling. Last year the Chinese infrastructure party ended and the shale oil boom went bust. More recently the FANG stocks went from pulling the market up to pushing it down. And today Apple -- whose sales would always go up because everyone on Earth wants an iPhone and there were still some people in Africa and the Amazon Basin who don't yet have one -- reported that not only is its revenue no longer growing, but it might shrink in the year ahead.

Driverless Vehicles Powered by Artificial Intelligence / Companies / Auto Sector

By: BATR

The joy of driving was once an important part of the American Dream. Take to the open roads meant freedom and adventure. The utilitarian objective of moving from one place to another just does not seem to possess the same romance. As with all reminiscences of the past, the lingering memories like to keep the good times close and block out the troubles when possible. This same trait can be applied to the distinctly national love affair with the auto. But as with all things, times move on and many in the tech community believe that the next advancement in land travel will come from an AI revolution.

As Corporate Earnings Slow, What Will Happen To Taxes? / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Rodney_Johnson

Last week the Census Bureau reported retail sales for December, and the numbers weren’t pretty. Sales dropped 0.1% overall last month, and were down the same 0.1% when auto sales were excluded. Removing volatile gasoline sales only moved the number to flat. Making matters worse, retail sales increased a paltry 2.1% for all of 2015 – the smallest gain since 2009, and well below the 3.9% growth in 2014.

The report justified our negative view on earnings. Fourth-quarter numbers should be ugly. All of this plays right into our forecast for a general market decline and tough economic conditions in the months ahead.

Regenerative Medicine’s Fountain of Youth / Companies / BioTech

By: Richard_Mills

Aubrey de Grey a biomedical gerontologist, predicted that the first person to live to a thousand has already been born. According to de Grey the key may lie in the field of regenerative medicine.

The Webster dictionary defines biological regeneration as “the restoration or the growth by an organism of organ or tissue, that have been lost, removed or injured.”

Dr. William Haseltine CEO of Human Genome Sciences, believes thatregenerative medicine is about assisting the body to heal itself. Dr. Haseltine coined the term "regenerative medicine," to describe the expected medical revolution that, in his view, could lead to human immortality.

BP Upstream Getting Crushed / Companies / Oil Companies

By: AnyOption

BP’s announcement earlier of another 4,000 job cuts on top of existing measures designed to ease the pressure of rapidly tumbling oil prices comes as no surprise, especially with crude oil prices tumbling to a brand new multi-year low.  The industry has fallen to such depths that the Saudi’s are even contemplating taking a piece of their petroleum empire public to raise desperately needed cash to continue waging their price war.  However, the current British Petroleum is on Saudi Aramco, and stands as a shadow of its former self.  Now, with oil prices set to stay depressed for an indefinite period of time, BP is trimming what remains of the company to weather the storm while trying to boost shareholder value.

By: Richard_Shaw

These tables present the 10 stocks in each US sector of the total US stock market ranked by how close they are to their 1-year trailing high price as of December 24, 2015. To be included in the filter universe, each stock had to have a 3-month average Dollar trading volume of at least $10,000 per minute.

Semi Bearish? - A Technical look at Semi Stocks and the Semiconductor Index / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Gary_Tanashian

I must be bearish the Semi Equipment sector because I am short both LRCX and AMAT; the former a successful NFTRH+ long position that hit target and found resistance as anticipated by this chart originally included with the update.  I am not so worried about the gap because it changed the trend and gaps that alter the trend of a stock can take a long while to fill.

Tek Stocks SEMI Book-to-Bill Ratio Decelerates as Expected, Semis Not Under Valued / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Gary_Tanashian

I see analysis out there discussing the Semiconductor sector as a whole as being under valued relative to other stock market sectors. This seems to be based on the fact that the SOX chart has not made nearly the catch up move that for example, the NDX has in its post 2000 recovery.

While charts can provide many helpful views to probabilities, they cannot get inside an industry and divine the importance of a sub-sector (Semi Equipment; AMAT, LRCX, etc.) within a sector as a whole. The equipment companies (which I am short) are the Canary's Canary, with the Semi sector in general being an economic Canary in a Coal Mine.

Business Mergers Soar in 2015 / Companies / Mergers & Acquisitions

By: BATR

What does a CEO do when the economy is in a persistent down turn and your business cannot expand or grow? Jump at the time tested strategy of acquisition to gain market share seems to be the response in 2015. Yet a merger is no sure thing. Anyone remember AOL’s deal to buy Time Warner. How did that turn out? Just how much additional efficiency can be squeezed out of any company? In the era of part time contract workers and low wages, all the fat has been long gone. As for research and development in new technology or products, how will such innovation be marketed in an economy infatuated with the promise of Amazon Prime drone deliveries?

Hopefully the more sophisticated investors out there bought some calls three month`s out as NRG Energy is a definite takeout candidate with this shockingly low stock price given its actual assets.

Why Getting Valuation Right Is So Important To Retired Dividend Growth Investors / Companies / Pensions & Retirement

By: Charles_Carnevale

Although getting valuation right before you buy a stock is critically important to the long-term oriented retired dividend growth investor, it is not a short-term market timing concept.  My point is that short-term market movements are typically volatile and unpredictable.  The reason is simple.  Over short periods of time, which I define as less than a business cycle (3- 5 years), emotion has a major effect on stock prices.
