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.

China Telecommunications Boom Investment Opportunities / Companies / Investing

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.

Market Wrap - Gold & Silver Stocks / Companies / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

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.

By: Sarah_Jones

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

The firm aims to have the factory operational by early 2008. The factory will produce large sheets of flexible plastic upon which circuits will be printed, much as circuits are printed upon silicon wafers today. 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.

American companies missing the boat when investing in China ! / Companies / Analysis & Strategy

By: Money_and_Markets

The six Chinese office workers in front of me all ordered the same thing — a Chinese specialty called hot pot, a simmering fondue-like pot of aromatic and spicy stock that contains leafy vegetables, mushrooms, dumplings, meat, and/or seafood. It looked absolutely delicious and smelled even better. 'I want one of those,' I said to the cashier who couldn't speak a lick of English.

My host at the Zhang Jiang Hi-Tech Industrial Park cafeteria on the outskirts of Shanghai gently interrupted me. 'I suggest you make a different selection, Mr. Sagami,' he quietly warned. 'That is dog hot pot.'

'Dog? Dog as in woof woof? ' I asked.

Russians file $10 billion lawsuit against Royal Dutch Shell for environmental damages on Sakhalin-2 project / Companies / Strategic News

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Russia's Environment agency Rosprirodnadzor, today said it was to file lawsuits against foreign oil companies developing the Sakhalin-2 oil and gas fields during early 2007. The agency estimated initial costs of the damage at $10 billions but could rise as high as $50 billion. Intense pressure from the Russian government is forcing Royal Dutch Shell to give up control of the lucrative $30 billion Sakhalin-2 project to state gas monopoly Gazprom as an attempt to elevate the pressure and get the project moving forward. Shell holds a controlling 55 percent stake in Sakhalin Energy. Japan's Mitsui and Mitsubishi own 25 percent and 20 percent.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Google passes $500 on the back of a wave of speculative interest, is this the start of another run up in google or are we near a potential slump in the google share price ?

Google passes $500, Is it time to sell ?

Since google floated some 2 years ago at $85, it has had strong run higher to the current price of $505, up 600% since IPO, and up over 50% on the 330 lows seen barely 3 months ago. Now we look at where google actually stands and probability that it can achieve an even higher price or if Google has run ahead of its fundamentals.

Canada's surprise change in income trust tax laws / Companies / Canadian Stock Market

By: Shahla_Walayat

Canada's "Conservative" government recently announced a surprise change in the tax laws that could have come straight from the Kremlin's playbook. The tax change regards a new plan to tax Canada's income trusts. Not only does it come out of the blue, it breaks a pledge made by Canada's Conservative government not to change the trust taxation rules.

Trusts, unlike corporations, pay little or no corporate tax because they were set up to take advantage of a loophole in tax rules. The supposedly offsetting factor is that owners of trust units pay higher tax on income from the trust because a break for corporate dividends doesn't apply. With trusts paying no corporate income tax to Canada or to their province of residence, foreigners paid 15-per-cent withholding tax on investment income going out of Canada.
