Write Covered Calls to Recoup Losses on Financial Stocks / Companies / Options & Warrants

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe've spoken in this space about Wells Fargo Bank and its (relative) virtues among the financials, and recommended buying WFC on a number of occasions through the autumn of 2008. Sadly, Wells did not escape the fate of the rest of the financials, though it held out somewhat longer (cold comfort for those of us still holding). And at this point, WFC has had its skin peeled and salted, recently falling over 50% in only three weeks!

Auto Bailout: If You Thought it Was Ridiculous Before… / Companies / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo be honest, I figured General Motors would be in bankruptcy by now. With a monthly burn rate estimated to be between $2 billion and $6 billion (depending on source) it would seem this money hole would have imploded sooner rather than later.

U.S. Zombie Banks to Avoid and Hidden Gems / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner last week proposed a series of programs, totaling $1.5 trillion, to bail out the U.S. banking system. Of course, Geithner hasn't told us precisely how he plans to spend the money , or identified which banks require such an enormous outlay.

So I thought it was worth looking at the United States' 12 largest banks to see where the problems might be and identify which banks might need big infusions of government cash. I perused the financial statements of all 12 banks, and also looked at their market valuations.

Coca Cola (KO) Keeps its Fizz Buy, Sell or Hold / Companies / Investing 2009

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHoracio Marquez writes: Continuing with the trend of companies that have blasted through Wall Street's earnings estimates of late, The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO ) last week announced its ninth-straight quarter of double-digit earnings per share (EPS) growth and a third straight year of meeting or exceeding its long-term-growth targets. Excluding one-time items, the Atlanta-based company's earnings per share of 64 cents represented a 10% gain from last year's fourth quarter , beating analysts' expectations by three cents.  In addition, Coke's unit-case volume was up 4% in the fourth quarter and 5% for the full year.

Stock Market Investors Searching for a Silver Lining / Companies / Investing 2009

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“When people are frightened, they cut their time horizon dramatically, ... Even advisors will say to sell because they see portfolios crumble and they fear people will have nothing left. It's really not rational, but it does happen.”

That's what David Dreman wrote in his book Contrarian Investment Strategies . Now, almost 30 years later, it's looking like it's happening all over again.

Business Law Refresher: Useful Legal Definitions Everyone Should Kno / Companies / Business

By: David_Haas

It's time taxpayers begin thinking less in terms of excuses, justifications, rationalizations, and scapegoating for the current financial mess and more in terms of investigations, indictments, arrests, detentions, prosecutions, penalties, restitutions, “clawbacks”, and punitive-damages. Here in the U.S., RICO LAW comes quickly to mind.

Will HBOS Bankrupt Lloyds TSB into Nationalisation? / Companies / Nationalization

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe shot-gun wedding between HBOS and LLoyds TSB last September in the amidst of the financial markets panic following Lehman's bankruptcy to prevent another Northern Rock nationalisation is increasingly blowing up in Lloyds TSB's face as yet again the reassuring words that bankers say one week turn out to be completely untrue. The Lloyds Chairman was congratulating himself barely 3 weeks ago of how the takeover would result in cost savings of £1.5 billion per year. With today's announcement of a £10 billion loss by HBOS for 2008 shatters the Chairman's illusion and Lloyds TSB's balance sheet, as ever it will not be the bankers that pay the price but the tax payer. Already the UK Tax payer has pumped in capital injections of £18 billion into the LLoyds TSB HBOS group.

Dead Bankrupt Banks Stock Prices Diluted Into Oblivion / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA hard time came when deciding upon a title today. “Dead Banks Walking” or “Insolvent & Motionless Yet Standing” or “Much Ado About No Credit” or “The Bank Vampires” or “The Primary Dark Syndicates” made sense. But what came to mind when a comment made by the Jackass in June 2008 on the Vancouver stage at a Cambridge House Metals & Mining Conference. My words to close a panel discussion on the banks were “Just wait, in several months you will see the entire US banking system go insolvent, its stock prices dwindle to nothing, as it will be diluted into oblivion!” It happened.

1. A massive audit of the 18 largest banks is underway.

Profit from the End of Cheap Oil: Petrobras / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI knew I had made a mistake only seconds after I did it. I had decided to sit down and watch CNBC's Power Lunch with the sound ON for a few minutes while I ate my sandwich. I figured – how many brain cells would I possibly kill off in just a couple of minutes?

However, I had forgotten about my high blood pressure. Bill Griffeth was talking to some oil trader about oil which was up a few pennies on the day. Bill Griffeth began lecturing the trader, “Why in the world is oil up? How can oil possibly be up in the face of deflation, demand destruction, etc.”

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Peak oil, my a**. I've got hundreds of millions of barrels of the stuff in the Gulf [of Mexico]. We know where the oil is…we just can't get to it. I can't even get a contractor that can do the work to take my call.”

That's what an oil company executive told me (with a Texas drawl and an arm around my shoulder for balance) a little over three years ago.
