Energy Stocks Undervalued as Crude Oil Targets Beyond $100 During 2008 / Companies / Energy Resources

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs energy cheap or dear? Oil prices cut above the once-unthinkable level of $100 a barrel for the first time ever this week. One of the biggest questions as we move into 2008 is what kind of impact that will have on the wider markets and the US economy.

Since oil bottomed in the late 1990s, both market and economy have survived successive milestones in its rise, despite forecasts of disaster every time a new one was reached. Last year, however, crude prices reached new territory by breaking past their '70s highs in inflation-adjusted terms. At the same time, the collapse of the US housing industry and mortgage market began to stoke US recession worries in earnest.

Importance of Energy Sector Stocks Selection / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps one of the most-frustrating myths about investing in the energy patch is that it's all about predicting the direction of oil and natural gas prices.

One commonly held belief is that oil and gas-related stocks all move as a group--basically, in the same direction as the underlying commodities. For that matter, I've heard plenty of times from investors who believe that nuclear power, alternative energy and other non-hydrocarbon energy plays also follow oil and natural gas prices.

Northern Rock Bank Could Consume Entire NHS Budget of £100billion / Companies / UK Banking

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The UK Government effectively announced the nationalisation of Northern Rock Bank as the Treasury extended its guarantees beyond the current estimate of monies loaned of £25 billion to cover all deposits and debts of the Bank, which amounts to more than £100 billion or the annual UK health service budget.

Pick-up Cheap MLP Dividend Stocks at Bargain Basement Prices / Companies / Dividends

By: Elliot_H_Gue

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaster Limited Partnerships (MLP) have long been my favorite income-oriented group. The stocks offer an unbeatable combination of high tax-advantaged yields, steady cash flow profiles and the potential for significant income growth over time.

Even better, I see a rare opportunity developing in this space: The recent pullback in the group looks like an outstanding opportunity to buy at bargain-basement prices and lock in some highly attractive yields. We've seen a handful of pullbacks in the MLPs over the past decade, and each has proven to be an outstanding opportunity for investors with the foresight to jump in. And this latest short-term selloff will prove to be no different.

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.

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.

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...
