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.

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.

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs cable's goose cooked? Is the jig up on what's been torrid growth for the past few years? Are the big phone companies finally going to bury them?

That's certainly the line being trumpeted by the financial media this week. Once investor darlings, cable television stocks have plummeted in recent weeks, with the selling accelerating as third quarter earnings season has gotten underway.

United Auto Workers (UAW) Sellout at GM and Chrysler / Companies / US Auto's

By: Stephen_Lendman

The September and October United Auto Workers (UAW) GM and Chrysler agreements are just the latest examples of union leadership surrender and betrayal. It's an ominous sign of labor's plight and clear indication of what's ahead - more for business, less for workers, and no relief in sight with union bosses out for themselves and more allied with business and imperial interests than their own rank and file.

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.
