Why Facebook Stock is a Dead End Investment / Companies / Internet

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: I've made no bones about my feelings for Facebook Inc (Nasdaq: FB) - that it's overrated, a flash in the pan, and ultimately doomed.

Yes, the company just knocked the ball off earnings yesterday. And the stock is up 4.86% as I write this. But I really couldn't care less what happens in the short term. I still can't get behind its long-term potential.

4D Printing Profit Potential Makes Me Drool / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: After more than 30 years in the markets, I've seen all kinds of new technologies that are supposed to change the world. Most are pumped by little-known companies with overly hyped marketing, aggressive underwriters, and little more than vaporware. To say I'm jaded would be an understatement.

But I ran across something recently that positively made my mouth drop.

My Six Favorite Growing Dividend Paying Stocks / Companies / Dividends

By: Profit_Confidential

Mitchell Clark, B.Comm writes: The stock market typically reacts quite positively when a company beats Wall Street consensus. But in a considerable number of cases, a company’s share price after-earnings bounce isn’t really warranted, considering the run-up in anticipation.

Many stocks go up in value after beating expectations, but many numbers this quarter actually reveal a contraction in business conditions.

What Caterpillar’s Big Drop in Earnings Means for the General Stock Market / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: With the S&P 500 hovering around its all-time highs, I think it’s quite interesting to read some of the latest corporate earnings reports and get a sense of what’s really happening in the global economy.

One of the most international companies within the S&P 500 is Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE/CAT). The firm recently released its third-quarter 2013 corporate earnings report, in which the firm poured some cold water on expectations. Revenue during the quarter was down 18% year-over-year, and corporate earnings were down 44% year-over-year. (Source: Caterpillar Inc., October 23, 2013.)

Corporate Earnings Leadership Emerging in These Transport Stocks / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Profit_Confidential

Mitchell Clark, B.Comm writes: As more and more companies report, it’s apparent that quite a few are beating Wall Street consensus (usually either on revenues or earnings, rather than both), and it’s happening in industries where you want to see leadership.

What Wall Street consensus actually becomes is typically a well-managed dance between sell-side analysts and a company’s chief financial officer. Consensus estimates generally don’t mean very much in the way of real economic growth, which makes it all the more significant when you do see real growth.

Three Bullish ETFs for an Increasingly Optimistic Eurozone / Companies / European Stock Markets

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: Despite Congress miraculously pulling the U.S. back from the brink of destruction by temporarily raising the debt ceiling and ending the U.S. government shutdown, Americans continue to be a pessimistic bunch. But can you blame us?

According to Gallup’s U.S. Economic Confidence Index, consumer sentiment remains in negative territory. After falling to -39 during the recent standoff in Washington, U.S. economic confidence has improved to -36. To use the term “improved” is being generous; in late May, the index was at -3. (Source: “U.S. Economic Confidence Index [Weekly],” Gallup web site, October 14, 2013.)

JPMorgan Pays Another Record Fine - What Next? / Companies / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Garrett Baldwin writes: The $13 billion settlement between JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) and the federal government shocked markets this week, as the fines would be a record paid by a Wall Street institution.

According to reports, the sum will amount to approximately half of the company's 2012 profits.

The JPM settlement is another black eye for the company and its weathered Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Jamie Dimon, who had emerged from the financial crisis as a pseudo cult figure with Teflon status.

This 3.5% Dividend Payout Is "High Yield" in Disguise, Best Dividend ETFs / Companies / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: If I offered you an investment that pays 3.5% a year, and one that pays 12% a year, which one would you choose?

All else being equal, we'd be fools not to take the 12% offer.

Of course, "all else" is rarely equal... especially in a rising interest-rate environment. "Growth," as you'll recall, is the new "income."

Goldman Sachs Feels Bad about What JP Morgan is Going Through / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Goldman Sachs president and COO Gary Cohn told Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle on "Market Makers" today that he doesn't know what drove the firm's underperformance in fixed-income trading in the third quarter: "We don't know precisely why we had a tough quarter, but the results are in, and I can tell you we had a tough quarter in fixed-income...We're very committed, we're going to redouble or triple our efforts in fixed-income. We believe ourselves to be a very powerful, very dominant, top-tier fixed-income shop."

Why Apple Stock is Cheap, Buyback a No Brainer / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Billionaire investor, Carl Icahn speaks to Bloomberg Television's Trish Regan this afternoon on "Street Smart" and said on Apple:

  • Apple buyback would be 'no-brainer'
  • "We are not leaving Apple, we are there to stay"
  • "Apple needs a board that goes in and does a huge buyback. We are saying that. I respect Tim Cook and I expect to talk to him again very shortly and I think he is doing a very fine job."
  • Apple should buy back $150 Billion in Stock
  • To critics of the Apple buyback: "[they] have not bothered to read the balance sheet or maybe does not know how to read a balance sheet."
  • Tim Cook believes the stock is very Cheap
  • Not looking for a quick turn in Apple

Why the Gaming Stocks Sector Should Be on Your Investing Radar / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: With the upcoming release of new video consoles from Sony Corporation (NYSE/SNE) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ/MSFT), the video game sector appears to be set to experience a revival, as my stock analysis indicates.

According to NPG Group, the U.S. sales of video game-related hardware, software, and accessories surged by 27% year-over-year to $1.08 billion in September. (Source: The NPD Group, Inc. web site, last accessed October 22, 2013.) The sale of software, specifically, surged 52% to $754 million, accounting for 70% of total sales. Yet with the debut of two new consoles in November (Sony’s “PlayStation4” and Microsoft’s “Xbox One”), my stock analysis indicates that sales in the hardware sector will pick up, giving a boost to the share prices of Microsoft and Sony.

Tesco Bubble Bursts - Profits Crash As Big Spending Customers Quit Shopping on Poor Service / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Tesco, Britains biggest super market has seen its profits crash by 23.5% to £1.39 billion for the 6 months to Sept 30th, surprising the markets and prompting many worried investors such as Warren Buffett to start existing their Tesco holdings (Buffet cut his holding near immediately by 1/5th) as clearly something is seriously going wrong at Tesco's resulting in competitors such as Sainsbury's winning market share away from Tesco, which illustrates that it's a lot quicker on the way down than it was on the way up!

Corporate Earnings Growth to Ramp Up? Call Me a Skeptic / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: John_Mauldin

In today’s Outside the Box, Sheraz Mian, Director of Research for Zacks Investment Research, gives us an overview of corporate earnings trends for the past several quarters and consensus expectations going forward, and asks, “How realistic are these expectations?”

Not very, he says, and tells us why. This is the sort of thorough, no-nonsense analysis Zacks is famous for. Zacks Investment Research was founded in 1978 by Len Zacks, PhD. Many innovations have come from this firm over the years, including the creation of the Earningps Consensus that many investors use now to compare versus actual earnings reports. Most notably, Len discovered the predictive power of earnings estimate revisions. He harnessed these benefits into the proprietary Zacks Rank stock rating system that has allowed Zacks Rank to compile an outstanding track record.

How China's Investment in UK Companies Affects The Stock Market / Companies / UK Stock Market

Brett Chatz writes: Earlier this year Chinese fashion brand Bosideng opened a flagship store in London. According to the China Daily, in an interview with Zhou Xiaoming of the Chinese Embassy in the UK, the products sold are made in the UK; even if it's an exaggeration it's still quite a u-turn!
