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

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Gold Spikes for British Investors as Run On Northern Rock Bank / Companies / Financial Crash

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."

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNorthern Rock, one of Britian's largest mortgage banks is expected to receive emergency funding from the Bank of England today for possibly more than £4 billion ($8 billions), as the mortgage bank runs out of cash and is unable to obtain credit on the interbank money market due to the ongoing liquidity squeeze and the banks own sizeable subprime mortgage book risks.

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

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Investors swamped my email when news hit that some oil crews were “fleeing” the advance of Mean Dean in the Gulf of Mexico.

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?”

MPTrader - Citigroup Should Hold Here for a Rally / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Either today's swoon in Citigroup (NYSE: C) is a retest (so far successful) of the August 6 low at 45.02 or the continuation of a new downleg that started at the establishment of the August 8 rally peak at 49.88. If it turns out to be the former, then C should pivot to the upside with some power in an effort to re-probe resistance at 49-50.

Surviving Financial Contagent by Focusing on Company Results / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

The subprime mortgage/high-yield meltdown continues to dominate the markets and financial media. There's a good reason for that: The world's financial markets are intimately connected in myriad ways, and none of us has a firm grip on all of them.

With luck, this situation won't develop into a full-scale financial meltdown along the lines of 1998. The economy, for example, is clearly healthy despite some weak spots, as this week's employment figures and the recent gross domestic product (GDP) growth and low inflation indicate. But until we see clear signs that it's winding down—and not spreading to other higher risk areas—investors are going to keep reacting, and strongly, to the various straws in the wind that appear.

Stock Market Investments - Hanging In There / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

I'm a glass-half-full guy. I always look for the bright side. And when things look their blackest, my every instinct is to buy, buy, buy.

I've also been in the investment business long enough to know that things don't always work out. Many times, where's there's smoke, there's a raging blaze that will scorch anyone who gets too close.

Businesses as cash-rich as investing do attract criminals. And you can't always trust the numbers.
