International Miners and Power Utilities Strong During US Financial and Economic Crisis / Companies / Emerging Markets

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the US economy and markets sneeze, the rest of the world catches a cold: That old investing adage has held for nearly a century, since this country first became dominant on the global scene after World War I.

Conventional wisdom is it will hold this time around as well. But based on the numbers we've seen thus far, that's far from certain.

Sectors and Stocks to Invest in to Weather a US Recession / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNilus Mattive writes: Tony's off today, so he asked me to fill in for him. Since he's such an advocate of foreign investing, and I'm the advocate of dividend-paying stocks, I'm taking this opportunity to tell you about a stock that combines both: It's riding the wave of rapid foreign growth. Plus, it pays nice dividends.

We don't often name specific investments here in Money and Markets , but I figured I'd do something a little bit different today. Think of it as an early holiday gift.

Homebuilders ETF Hurdles Above Resistance / Companies / US Housing

By: Mike_Paulenoff

During the past three sessions, the Homebuilding Sector ETF (AMEX: XHB) has broken and sustained above its 9, 20 and 50 DMA, and has hurdled its May-Dec resistance line. This is impressive action, and has inflicted meaningful damage to the heretofore dominant multi-month downtrend. On one hand, I should have established a new long position last Thurs or Fri, but on the other hand until I actually see the ability of the XHB to break key near-term resistance and sustain above those levels, I decided to take the prudent "show-me" approach. So far so good.

Emerging Market Companies- Strong Balance Sheets to Weather Economic Downturn / Companies / Emerging Markets

By: Yiannis_G_Mostrous

A seasoned investor in the international arena sent me an e-mail the other day using the signature “A Silk Roader.” I found the term appropriate for The Silk Road Investor subscribers, providing a code word of sorts to a circle that's still selective. ( Silk is my emerging markets newsletter.) Most investors haven't yet grasped the economic transformation taking place in front of our eyes.

Asia is leading this great global economic transformation and will be the engine of growth for years to come. And the region ex-Japan is still enjoying a long-term bull market that commenced at the bottom of the 1998 Asian Crisis.

Credit Crunch Withdrawal of Capital as General Motors and Freddie Mac Stare Into the Abyss / Companies / Credit Crunch

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we turn to Michael Lewitt of HCM Capital for a very insightful letter on the current credit crisis. As I wrote on Friday, it is important for anyone with any involvement in the financial world to pay attention to what is going on in the credit markets. I think it is going to have far more impact than most observers apparently believe.

Michael E. Lewitt is the Managing Member and President of HCM (Hegemony Capital Management). You can read his letter at www.hegcap.com .

Essential Service Companies to Weather Economic Downturn / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAren't you glad you own essential service stocks? Despite one of the most volatile, fear-driven markets in memory, shares of top-quality power, gas, water and communications companies are decidedly holding their own. In fact, even as the big cap averages have slid in recent weeks, the utility averages are again near all-time highs.

Essential service companies' advantage is simply that what they provide is critical to a functioning America. Anxiety-ridden consumers will cut back on gift-giving, postpone the purchase of an appliance or car or cancel a vacation. But they'll still pay their power, water and heating bills, and just try to take away their cell phones and laptops!

DELL Falls on Positive Earnings But High Price to Book Ratio / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDELL reported positive results after the bell yesterday, with quarterly earnings and revenues rising by 27.5% and 8.5% respectively compared to last year. However, with per share earnings missing analyst estimates and operating margins sliding to 5.29% (from 6.1% in 2Q08), shares traded sharply lower after hours.

While DELL may or may not be able to keep its turnaround/restructuring story alive, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the supergrowth days of the late 1990s are gone. Moreover, given that DELL's share price continues to be obscenely priced compared to book, it is also clear that shareholders still see something in DELL that I am missing.  Is it really worth paying $63 billion for something that is worth $6.8 billion on paper?

Apple Probing Break of Key Resistance / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is probing key resistance at 180-181, which if hurdled should trigger upside follow-through to 182.50 immediately, and then to 185.00. My near-term work argues in favor of a pop to 182.50, after which I will have to reevaluate the strength of the underlying pattern.

Freddie Mac Facing Insolvency and Gold's Immediate Outlook / Companies / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: John_Lee

This is a follow up to my last article: ‘ Subprime Mortgages Lead to Subprime Currency' (available here ) in which I wrote:

“The curious mind asks, who holds those $trillions worth of mortgages? Thanks to the genius of the American banking and marketing machine, just about every sizable institution underneath the sun with a fixed income portfolio. From Europeans to Asians, from Banks to Brokerages, from Hedge Funds to Pension Funds, Institution to Retail, Trusts to Endowments.

Countrywide Financial - The Next Big Bankruptcy To Hit the Financial Markets / Companies / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: As we warned you here in August ... and as I explained on CNBC a few days later ... America's kingpin of mortgages is on a collision course with bankruptcy.

Its name: Countrywide Financial

If it goes under, the impact on U.S. financial markets will be immediate; the damage to the U.S. economy, long-lasting.

Paragon Buy to Let Mortgage Lender Crashes 40% On Credit Crunch / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Paragon , Britian's third largest buy to let mortgage financing company crashed 40% yesterday and appears to be following a similar path to Northern Rock Bank. Both financial institutions relied heavily on the credit markets to finance loans to mortgage borrowers and both have been hit by the credit crunch. However not being a bank with no customer base, Paragon appears did not go the whole hock down the short-term funding route as Northern Rock and hence has managed to stumble along until yesterday.

Federal Express (FDX) Tip of a Iceberg? / Companies / Technical Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

News that Federal Express (FDX) lowers guidance and is coming clean about its rising imput costs (apparently, tis the season to come clean in lots of businesses) could be the tip of the iceberg that is providing clues to us about expectations ahead of the forthcoming holiday season... In any case, have a look at the BIG picture view of FDX, which is in a powerful correction that has a way to travel on the downside prior to completion... and which likely is reflection of a softer than expected US economy now and going forward...

Commodity And Vital Resource Producer Stocks are a Good Way to Protect Against Subprime Credit Crunch / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarnings season is winding down. As always, not every company made its numbers. In fact, even in the essential service end of the market, there were some bad misses.

The news on SPRINT NEXTEL CORP, for example, continues to get worse and worse. Not only did the third quarter numbers show dramatic customer losses to AT&T and VERIZON COMMUNICATIONS, but the company has now abandoned its venture with CLEARWIRE CORP that was supposed to revive its floundering WiMax development efforts. That throws the future of the projected $5 billion investment in doubt. In response, the shares have tumbled again.

Let's notice that GS remains under its Aug-Oct support line, which was violated yesterday at 225.00 and which still presents serious resistance to any rally effort.

Attempt at Manipulation of Ratings Agencies - Rubins Cube / Companies / Market Manipulation

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn November 8, 2001 Robert Rubin called senior Treasury Department official Peter Fisher and asked him if he could tell the bond rating agencies to hold off on downgrading Enron. Mr. Rubin, who served as Treasury Secretary from 1995 to 1999, was clearly using his high-up contact(s) in an attempt to influence the supposedly non-biased rating agencies, and he was doing so because he worked for Citigroup, a large Enron creditor.

Corporate Earnings Focus on the Real Numbers / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes it really matter whether or not a company makes Wall Street estimates? What about employment or GDP growth numbers coming in above or below consensus? Is there a magic number for crude oil inventories that will trigger a higher or lower price?

At no time in the markets are numbers more widely watched than earnings season. First come the pre-announcements and handicapping, as analysts put every company with a half-decent following under the microscope.
