Energy Trust Takeover Keeps Canada's Conservatives in Tough Spot / Companies / Canadian Stock Market

By: Chip_Hanlon

Because last year's bombshell that Canada would change the way it treated royalty trusts was fraught with political risks, not only did the country's ruling conservatives pull it off with surprising ease at the time, they've dodged all the bullets since. This latest one, however—the announced takeover of PrimeWest Energy Trust by Abu Dhabi 's national oil company—may be a tougher bullet to dodge. Here's why:

Oil Refiners Profit Margins Seasonal Weak As Crude Oil Rises and Gasoline Prices Fall / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring the past two weeks, we've heard negative pre-announcements or weaker-than-expected earnings guidance from a number of energy firms, including Marathon Oil , Valero Energy and Chevron Corp . To some, this appears incongruous: With crude trading near all-time highs, the conventional wisdom is that these firms should be making record profits.

Northern Rock Bank Run, Broker Recommendations and House Price Crash / Companies / Financial Crash

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst the run on the Northern Rock Bank continues during weekend openings, the same brokers and the mainstream financial press that were recommending buy and hold on the stock throughout the year are still dishing out advice on what savers and investors should now do, again with a bullish tinge. With every other paragraph containing words such as bid target, despite the fact that there's an ongoing run on the bank and liquidity has dried up in the market place so exactly where the financing will come from is anyone's guess. Additionally it will take many years for the public to gain confidence in the brand name 'Northern Rock', after watching endless news reports of savers lining up at high street branches throughout the UK to withdraw their funds in sheer panic.

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES slipped against the US Dollar early Friday, bouncing off Thursday's low at $704.50 but testing the week's highs for British investors as long queues formed outside branches of Northern Rock, the UK 's fifth largest mortgage lender.

Despite having just 0.24% of its assets exposed to the subprime US housing market, Northern Rock's stock plunged by one quarter at the London Stock Exchange in early trade after it said the Bank of England is stepping in to support it with a short-term loan as "lender of last resort."

A Hidden Asian Investment Gem / Companies / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: I run at a pretty fast pace when I'm in Asia. Every day is packed with factory tours … meeting with company executives … pestering government and university leaders for their local knowledge.

I hit the streets to see things with my own eyes because that's the only way I can know if the zealous investor relations departments are feeding me overly optimistic projections. I'm also willing to shift my entire focus when something really makes my eyeballs pop out.

Newmont Mining in Double Bottom Pattern / Companies / Gold & Silver Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

We highlighted Newmont Mining (NYSE: NEM) 8 days ago at 41.72. Aside from the fact the NEM has climbed 6% since the 8/28 read, let's notice that today's thrust from 43 to over 44 occurred immediately after the price structure hurdled the 200 DMA (42.82), which also has propelled NEM above its prior rally peak of 44.05 on 7/24…leaving behind a big "W" pattern (Double Bottom). A sustained climb above 44 will trigger upside potential off of the Double Bottom towards the 48-50 target zone.

Communications Stocks Look Strong Despite Market Turbulence / Companies / Telecoms

By: Roger_Conrad

It's tough to keep in mind during times of turbulence, but market moods and trends come and go. The only constant is businesses. And the performance of those in your portfolio is what's ultimately going to determine whether your wealth expands or contracts.

This week, the markets returned to a relative state of calm. The key was the aggressive action by the Federal Reserve and the world's other central banks to pump liquidity into the global system and prevent the ongoing credit crunch from becoming an economic calamity.

Drilling Down : Crude Oil Stocks Buying Opportunity / Companies / Oil Companies

These investors have seen some hard bounces of late on the Street's “mechanical” bull, looking for good buys to the upside. Most readers asked me the same question: “I'm tempted by the bargains out there, but this is hurricane season. Should I invest in the energy patch right now?”
