US Utilities 'Stealth' Nuclear Power Revival to result in more Demand for Uranium / Companies / Uranium

By: James_Finch

While the big talk is about nuclear reactors being built in China, India, Russia and elsewhere, U.S. utilities are enjoying a ‘stealth’ nuclear renaissance of their own. Since the NRC ‘power uprate’ program began, utilities may add the equivalent of up to seven new reactors by 2011.

The news media love headlines, especially those which mention that no nuclear reactor has come online in more than a decade. How would journalists (and environmentalists) react if they discovered U.S. nuclear utilities have added the ‘nuclear power’ equivalent to four large reactors? A fifth or more could be on the way.

Will the Vacation Industry be a Victim of Sub-prime and ARM Problems? / Companies / US Housing

By: Marty_Chenard

Where and How will the sub-prime/ARM problems hurt other parts of the economy?

Who will get hurt first?

You are probably tired of hearing about the sub-prime problem by now. There is another aspect about sub-prime problems that the no one is talking about that has underlying implications regarding delinquent debts problems .

Larry Jeddoloh, of TIS Group, made a good observation about consumers caught in debt problems relative to their mortgage payments and losing their homes. He said that, " ... when a consumer is in deep debt, they always try to save their homes first. They will let their credit card payments go, stop payments on their car, and default on loans from a relative before they lose their house." What about those who are not in deep debt yet?

Regulation Rules - The Risks of falling out of favour with the Industry Regulators / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

When it comes to utilities' long-term profitability and performance, nothing is as important as regulation. In fact, nothing even comes close.

A good relationship with regulators can restore even the weakest player to health. And history is littered with examples of hostile relations ultimately wrecking even the most vibrant company's prospects.

Up until the late 1970s, US utilities operated under what came to be known as the regulatory compact. In recognition of the long-term, capital-intensive nature of building and maintaining essential service infrastructure, federal and state governments granted utilities monopolies. Companies were allowed to recover all prudently incurred expenses in customer rates, along with a solid return on invested capital.

American Auto Industry - Driven to Fudge the Numbers / Companies / US Auto's

By: Rob_Kirby

Much has been written lately regarding the woes of the North American Auto Industry and why they seemingly cannot compete.

Reasons proffered as to why the North American auto industry has fallen upon such hard times run the gamut from quality issues to aging work forces to greedy unions.

One of the less talked about or ignored issues that has greatly impacted the plight of the auto industry is the misreporting of inflation - thanks to financial shenanigans by Central Bankers like the Federal Reserve.

Investing in Asia - An update on 13 Asian powerhouses / Companies / Emerging Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

Larry Edelson : I'm on another whirlwind tour of Asia. I just wrapped up a four-day visit to Kuala Lumpur … before that I spent four days in Hong Kong and Macau … and now I'm resting up for my next stop, Dubai. I can't wait to check out the financial capital of the Middle East, which also happens to be an important source of capital for Asia.

But while I'm taking a breather, I figured now is a good time to update you on the Asian stocks I told you about last June . How are they doing? Great!

Of the 13 stocks I highlighted, 12 are in the winning column with gains of up to 66.6%! There's only one loser, which fell about 11%.

So, as you can see, while a lot of people were busy talking about China slowing down and Asian markets looking shaky, many Asian stocks posted solid gains.

Investing in Gold Mining Companies - Hispaniola / Companies / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Sean Brodrick : On my way to check out a mine in Hispaniola! - By the time you read this, I'll be flying to the Dominican Republic on the island of Hispaniola. I'm not going there for rest and relaxation. Instead, I'll be investigating a small mining company. It's exploring a rare spot where gold is literally laying on the ground just waiting to be scooped up!

I'm in a hurry to see this place in person. Especially since gold looks ready to move past $800 an ounce. More on why in a moment.

First, let me tell you about my golden ticket to the Dominican Republic. Let's start with a little background …

Investing in Rural US Telecom companies via Trusts and REITS / Companies / Investing

By: Roger_Conrad

Where have all the high yields gone?

With top-quality utilities and real estate investment trusts (REITs) paying out 3 percent or even less, it's certainly become a lot more difficult to earn a decent income return in recent years--particularly if you stick to Wall Street's beaten path.

Of course, real bargains are hard to find, even if you're willing to buy something that's not a mainstream, NYSE-listed stock officially sanctioned by your broker. But your odds improve considerably if you go where others fear to tread, either because of complexity or simple bearishness.

By: Money_and_Markets

I recently found myself flying to Chandler, Arizona to meet up with a good friend of mine, David Phillips. Not only is David one of my very best friends, he's also a great person to talk to about estate planning. Heck, he wrote a whole book on the subject! Estate Planning Made Easy

I'm certainly not rich, but I will have some things to leave behind when I depart this world. So, I figured my trip would be the perfect way to talk business and catch up with my pal all at the same time.

The timing of my visit was perfect! Not only did I enjoy some very welcome Arizona sunshine, I also managed to catch David's 17-year-old daughter, Kelsey, performing with her church choir.

Investing in Uranium Stocks - As Uranium set to soar to $100 / Companies / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

The price of uranium is poised for a sprint to $100 per pound this year, and many uranium stocks are already taking wing. So is it too late to buy? Not by a long shot — especially if you can find uranium “ugly ducklings.”

You remember the story of the ugly duckling, don't you? As ducklings go, this bird was far from handsome. The other ducks didn't think he'd amount to much — they considered him a freak with a beak! But once he grew up a bit, he spread his wings and revealed he was a beautiful swan.

Investing in Oil Sector Companies - Peak Oil / Companies / Investing

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Earnings season is a busy time for the stock market. And the January/February season--when most companies report fourth quarter results--is the busiest of them all. That's because companies typically offer a look at the year ahead, shedding some light on new themes to consider.

There's a handful of companies I watch more carefully than others; I see these firms as key "tells" for the energy market. One such firm is oil services giant Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB). The reason I watch this stock so carefully and listen to all of management's conference calls and presentations is that Schlumberger has its hands in every region of the world and in every conceivable type of oil project currently underway. If you're looking for the 35,000-foot view of the oil market, Schlumberger is your best bet.

The HUI Index lost 0.21 cents for the week, closing out at $332.32. During the week it had been as high as $343.56 and as low as $324.38. Another false break out occurred as will be shown on the chart below.

The same caveats apply here as they did to gold. Working off overhead supply takes time. A last correction/consolidation may take place before the new bull market phase begins in earnest. The above $324.38 is our first line of support.

The year of the deal - Mergers & Acquisitions Boom time / Companies / Analysis & Strategy

By: Den_Denning

2006 was clearly the year of the deal. The Australian mining sector alone saw A$145 billion in deals. According to Friday's Australian, investment banking firms did nearly 3,000 buyouts or mergers in 2006, with the top ten firms doing nearly $166 billion in deals.

So what's next? Has all the low-hanging fruit been picked? You'd think all the obvious deals have been done by now. With the cost of capital low, any under-valued firms with reliable cash flow have already been targeted. There are only so many firms where you can cut costs, find synergies, or operate more efficiently so that you generate a 15-20% return on your investment in a few years. Now that the big fish have been taken, it's time to look for littler fish.

A British firm, Plastic Logic has announced that it will build the world's first factory to manufacture plastic electronic circuits.

These can then be used in a whole host of flexible devices focusing on flexible display units already on the market and being produced by the likes of Panasonic and Sony. I.e. flexible plastic books that can literally hold a thousand books.

Five ways to invest in China for 2007 - Exchange traded funds (ETF's), Mutual funds, Chinease companies.. / Companies / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Last year was a happy one for domestic stock market investors. All the major U.S. indices were up in 2006. But 2007 might not be a repeat.

Reason: The U.S. economy has been slowing rapidly. In the last week, the stream of discouraging news has just kept coming. Four examples:

The Commerce Department said gross domestic product (GDP) increased at an annual rate of 2% in the third quarter, down from 2.6% in the second quarter.

The Conference Board's index of leading economic indicators rose by just 0.1% in November. Over the past six months, the index is up a meager 0.2%. According to Ken Goldstein, one of the group's economists, 'The slower economy of the second half of 2006 might continue into the first half of 2007.'

Stock picks for 2007 - The Shares and funds to invest in for growth during 2007 / Companies / Investing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The theme for 2007 is to diversify into high growth economies, which includes both emerging and developed economies. The UK and USA are expected to slow during 2007 and better growth is likely to be found outside these countries, as was the case for much of 2006.

These are our stock picks for 2007 and beyond, the aim being to provide long-term sustainable growth rather than short-term speculative holdings, and as always do your own research before entering into any investment decisions. Also, we intend on focusing more on managed investment trusts rather than individual stocks so as to reduce the risk and this further enhance the long-term aspect of our selections.
