Investing in China - Fat Profits from Asian Hotels / Companies / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes, I recently hit the big 5-0, and thanks to the persistent but gentle goading of my wife, I went to the doctor for a very thorough physical exam.

My physician said, "You're the healthiest fat guy I've ever seen, but unless you do something about your weight, I guarantee you'll start to fall apart in the not-too-distant future."

I didn't like the "fall apart" part of his lecture, so I decided to make some major changes in my life. I dramatically altered my diet … I've been working out six days a week … and since the start of the year, I've lost 15 pounds!

If I sound proud of myself, it's because I am. However, in a few weeks, I'll be jumping on a Cathay Pacific airplane and jetting back over to Asia. I know that maintaining this new lifestyle while traveling won't be easy, especially since I have plenty of corporate, government, and educational leaders to visit.

Uranium Stocks about to Gap Higher / Companies / Uranium

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Charles Steen was born in Caddo, Texas in 1919. He went on to study at John Tarleton Agricultural College in Stephenville and in 1940 transferred to the Texas College of Mines and Metallurgy at El Paso, receiving a bachelor's degree in geology in 1943. Ineligible for the draft because of his poor eyesight, Steen spent World War II working as a geologist in Bolivia and Peru. Returning to the US in 1945, he married and took a job doing field work for the Standard Oil Company of Indiana .

Down on his luck after losing his job, Steen read an article in the December 1949 issue of the Engineering and Mining Journal which discussed how the US federal government had issued incentives for prospectors to locate domestic supplies of uranium.

US Economic Growth and Corporate Earnings Growth Expectations / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Hans_Wagner

Investors who wish to beat the market should have a good understanding of the market's earnings expectations. The U.S. economy is slowing and the market has lower earnings expectations for 2007. This will limit the expectations for potential growth in the stock market as investors take a more cautious near-term view. However, global growth in the emerging and BRIC countries should help global companies grow their earnings helping to offset the impact of lower earnings in the U.S.

Many of the large U.S. based companies derive more than 50% of their revenues and earnings from outside the U.S. This could set the stage for a change in the current bull market trend. Joe Ellis has written an excellent book on how to predict macro moves in the market called Ahead of the Curve: A Commonsense Guide to Forecasting Business and Market Cycles .

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.

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.

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.

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.
