An ETF for Latest Boom in Tech Stocks: Technology Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Benjamin_Shepherd

As the broader markets turn in a stellar performance, technology has been far and away one of the hottest sectors. That’s driven a huge 17.5 percent gain in Technology Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLK), just in the first quarter of 2012 alone.

Although highly commoditized, the semiconductor industry has been the top-performing industry group in the Technology Select Sector’s portfolio, with Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD), LSI Corp (NYSE: LSI) and Micron Technology (NYSE: MU) all gaining on average about 40 percent so far this year.

Outperform the Stock Market with Covered Call Options / Companies / Options & Warrants

By: Jim_Fink

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday’s rock-bottom interest rates and overpriced financial assets have created a low-return investment world that requires proactive yield-enhancement techniques such as covered calls, to generate the additional investment rate of return needed to retire comfortably.

Selling covered calls generates additional income and lowers the break-even cost basis of stock you already own, thus reducing the downside risk of stock ownership at all price points.

ETF's The Pesky Details of Prospectus Disclosure / Companies / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVedran Vuk, Casey Research : In the infamous case of the Goldman Sachs Abacus 2007 AC-1 fund, it doesn't take a whole lot to figure out the wrongdoing. Paulson & Co., a multibillion-dollar hedge fund, helped select the mortgage-backed securities held by Abacus while at the same time, Paulson was planning on shorting it. This was all unbeknownst to Abacus buyers, since Goldman Sachs conveniently left out the details of Abacus' creators and their bet against the fund in the investment marketing materials. Ultimately, the case was settled for $550 million.

Investing in Water Stocks: Three Names to Buy Right Now / Companies / Water Sector

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePatrick Vail writes: You've no doubt heard about the building scarcity of water. It's the reason savvy shareholders have been busy investing in water stocks.

Here's why.

Water may be everywhere but only 3% of it is fresh or suitable for drinking. Two-thirds of that is locked in glaciers and polar icecaps, which means less than 1% of the world's fresh water is available for human use.

How to Earn a 9.25% in 30 days While Waiting for Apple's Dividend / Companies / Options & Warrants

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: Although it's been one of the market's darlings for a decade now, dividend-oriented investors have long shunned computer giant Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) because, well ... it didn't pay one.

That, coupled with AAPL's historically high share price, has always kept me from buying Apple stock - but, as a trader, it hasn't kept me from generating income with Apple options.

Apple Stock Price Parabolic Move Compared to Past Parabolic Trends / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the first chart below I have included a weekly chart of the Nasdaq 100. Beginning at the 4-year cycle low that occurred in October 1998, we can see that price rose sharply into February 1999. In fact, in that 4 month period this index moved from a low of 1,063.74 up to 2,150.83. This was a 102% advance in only 4 months. As we moved into October of 1999 this advance was much more modest, but still managed to advance another 400 points during this time period and in doing so the Nasdaq 100 had advanced 143% in a mere 12 months. As this move received more and more attention more and more people jumped on the bandwagon with the hottest tech stock. As a result, a bubble began to form. From the October low at 2,299.95 the Nasdaq then advanced another 2,516. 39 points over the next 5 months. It was at this point that the advance went parabolic and in some 17 months the Nasdaq 100 had altogether advanced from the 1998 4-year cycle low at 1,063.74 into the March 2000 high at 4,816.34 for a total advance of 352.77%. From that high the Nasdaq 100 fell back to 795.25, which totally erased the entire move up from the 1998 4-year cycle low in which the dot-com bubble began and I still remember people talking about the tech stocks and why tech was back at the 2002 bottom. To date the Nasdaq 100 is still off of its high by some 40%.

How Savvy Investors Build True Wealth / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald, writes: Most investors think of time as an enemy, a predator that stalks them all of their lives. They never feel they have enough of it so they are constantly trying to outwit it.

Trying to beat time, they become irrational and make unpredictable, impulsive decisions to "get ahead" or hit the proverbial "home run."

The Truth About Corporate Earnings and How They Drive Stock Values and Shareholder Returns / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI want to start this article out with the positioning statement, that I am a fundamental investor, and that I believe in conducting a comprehensive fundamental evaluation on any Company (common stock) that I buy, or for that matter, hold or sell. My own personal core investing philosophy is about investing in businesses and not the stock market.  Consequently, it is only through a comprehensive analysis of the company’s fundamentals that the investment merits of an operating business can be analyzed and evaluated.

Apples Do Fall From The Trees, Now Not the time to Buy AAPL or Silver / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQuestion we are pondering today is whether or not investors do learn from their prior mistakes. Small children learn lessons, such as not to touch the hot stove again. They remember that lesson all of their lives. Humans spend a considerable part of their lives learning and remembering such lessons. However, when some well learned children grow into investors they seem to develop a mental block that prevents learning. Chart below of the price of Apple's stock over the past year suggests that something, perhaps it is greed, has interfered again with the learning process. Trees do not grow to the sky, and apples do ultimately fall from the trees.
