Company Feeding On China's Hearty Appetite For Pork / Companies / Livestock

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the United States, pork might be "the other white meat," but in China, it's the only meat. Well, almost.

Far more than any other meat, pork occupies a special place in the Chinese diet and economy. Supporting a hog market estimated to be worth $32 billion annually, the Chinese consume more pork than any other nation. It is prepared in almost every conceivable way, from roasted whole suckling pigs, commonly served during holiday feasts, to sweet and sour pork, whose Americanized version is a Chinese restaurant staple. Pork accounts for two-thirds of the average Chinese's protein intake.

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis look at Wells Fargo (WFC) strangely begins with an investigation into 3.875% mortgage loans - fixed for 30 years - offered by Arbor Custom Homes near Portland Oregon.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: If you're an emerging-markets investor, and you happened to peruse the study that the Institute for International Finance released this week, you must've experienced alarm - if not panic. The IIF expects the inflow of private funds into these markets to plunge to only $165 billion this year - an amount that's just 18% of the $929 billion that flowed into these very same markets in 2007.

Warning: Mega-banks Could Fail Despite Federal Bailouts / Companies / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: The time has come to issue one of my sternest warnings to date: Bank of America and Citigroup could fail despite the most radical government rescues of all time.

Right now, after recent close calls with instant death, these two megabanks are on life support, receiving massive transfusions of government capital. But they're still hemorrhaging, and no one in Washington has found a cure.

Constructive Pattern in XLU Utility Stocks ETF / Companies / US Utilities

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Apart from my sense that the Obama Administration is pro-energy efficiency, conservation, and "alternative," all of which implies a potential increase in electricity usage and production during the next 4-8 years, the technical set-up in the SPDR Select Utility ETF (AMEX: XLU) is very constructive.

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe doctors told us my Dad had two months to live. We were counting down days in our head. But they told us there was one option. It was called a ‘stem cell rescue'…Long story short, it's been two years and my Dad's doing fine.”

That's what a friend of mine told me a few months back. He saw some of the research we were doing on the silently emerging boom in stem cells and wanted to let me know how stem cell research had already yielded something very special for his family.

China Digital, Tuning in on Future Growth / Companies / China Stocks

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's no secret that 2008 was an abysmal year on Wall Street—the worst, in fact, since 1931. The Dow lost 33.8% of its value, while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq fell 38.5% and 40.5%, respectively.

On the other side of the globe the markets fared even worse. The Chinese economy, while still growing rapidly, has hit a major speed bump. After a red-hot 2007 that saw China's benchmark CSI 300, a cap-weighted index tracking 300 A-share stocks listed on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges, gain over 125%, Chinese stocks cooled considerably in 2008. After all was said and done, the index sank 66%.

America's Beleaguered Banks, Wheres the Bottom? / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Michael_Pento

Investors who have been pining for a chance to buy into the beleaguered banking sector may have a bit longer to wait. Just this past Friday holders of Bank of America's (NYSE: BAC ) stock were greeted with the reporting of the company's first quarterly loss ($1.79 billion) since 1991. To make matters worse, the company cut its quarterly dividend from $.32 to $.01. The loss prompted a new rescue package totaling $138 billion, which comes on the heels of the recent round of government injected capital of $25 billion last year.

Why did Barclays' Shares Drop 25% in a Day? / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnswer: The market did not believe the valuations of assets and liabilities.

The Solution?

Well the management of Barclays went on record to say that the valuations were sound and even went so far as to pre-release their numbers. Last time I looked (early on 20th January) the shares had gone down 10% on that news.
