Getting Shocked by Utility Stocks / Companies / US Utilities

By: Don_Miller

Retirees' portfolios need to be defensive, meaning they minimize risk but still have the potential for growth and income. Historically, this meant including a few widow-and-orphan stocks in your retirement portfolio—public utilities with nice dividends.

Utilities experience little volatility, their dividends are solid, and the demand for their product is constant, regardless of how well the economy is doing. Government regulation also gives them a leg up, since utilities face little competition. They set their rates, consumers pay up with little fuss because they have few alternatives, and the utilities turn a profit.

My Favorite Stocks for Investing in the Expanding Coffee Market / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: I love the smell of coffee brewing in the morning—and in the afternoon and evening. As you can tell, I do enjoy my coffee—but I also like watching some of the market’s top coffee stocks.

At the top of my hit list in the coffee sector is Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ/SBUX), just because of its strong brand recognition not only in the United States but worldwide. Whether it’s in Asia, Europe, or Latin America, you can always find that familiar green Starbucks logo. If they are long-term in their investment strategy, there’s little chance an investor could go wrong with Starbucks.

Starbucks Bull Market in Expensive Coffee / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: DailyWealth

Today's chart is yet another reminder that things "can't be all that bad" for the U.S. economy. After all, Americans are still buying expensive coffee.

Over the past couple years, we've featured many charts that demonstrate America may not be booming, but it can't be doing "all that bad." For example, we've shown you the strength in home-improvement stocks, banking stocks, manufacturing stocks, and hotel stocks. Today, we're adding "luxury coffee" to the list. Starbucks is soaring.

Paul Mampilly writes: If you own stocks, chances are good you're being scammed by one of corporate America's biggest secrets.

It's very hard to learn unless you've seen it up close... unless you've shaken its hand.

Over my 20-plus years as a portfolio manager and stock analyst, I was exposed to this secret dozens of times. And it scared the hell out of me.

The Best Bargain in Global Stock Markets Today / Companies / Emerging Markets

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: Every once in a while, every serious, long-term investor ought to stop, look around and ask himself (or herself), “What asset class can I invest in now that is unequivocally cheap?”

My answer today is emerging market stocks.

This may take many investors by surprise. After all, emerging markets equities, as a group, have plunged 16% this year vs. a 15% gain in the S&P 500. And mutual fund cash flow figures show that mom-and-pop investors are pulling money out in droves.

Are U.S. Auto Stocks a Buy Now? / Companies / US Auto's

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: When it comes to buying stocks, it’s important to know how each market sector is performing globally. Because we live in an internationally interconnected world, the events in one economic area can certainly affect a strategy when it comes to buying stocks.

One market sector that has been on fire in America is car sales. We all know that the low-interest-rate environment is now creating an extremely strong automotive market sector, driving the stock of many carmakers significantly higher.

Nokia Deal Could Mark the Last Chapter for Microsoft / Companies / Microsoft

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

As a value investor I used to spend a great deal of time in Microsoft hell – on one hand there was the company with enormous cash flows, an incredible return on capital, a huge moat, a cash-rich balance sheet, and trading at single-digit multiples (if you adjust for cash).  But on the other hand it threw away cash away for multi-billion-dollar acquisitions, followed up by inevitable write-offs.  Its founder and chairman was not interested in running the company, so he delegated to his best friend, who has been wrong at every single technological inflection point, and quite frankly not a very good leader.  Every few years the company airbrushes its old products (think of Office), calls it an upgrade, and goes on charging subscription fees; but new products quite frankly … suck.  Microsoft's competitors are getting better, and while a strong balance sheet helps in bad times, it is not a competitive advantage against competitors that have even more cash.

Neurotechnology Investing - Digging Below the Surface / Companies / BioTech

By: TLSReport

Neuroscience is about as complex as it gets. The central nervous system contains the brain and spinal cord, where hundreds of billions of neurons are located—and that doesn't include the peripheral nervous system. Casey Lynch, managing director of NeuroInsights, works to make sense of both the disease processes affecting the nervous system and potential therapies that could help patients and enrich investors. In this interview with The Life Sciences Report, Lynch brings some clarity to the complexity, and speaks frankly about the wild goose that some Alzheimer's disease investigators have been chasing.

Why I Like Microsoft’s Proposed Acquisition of Nokia’s Cell Phone Business / Companies / Microsoft

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ/MSFT) is finally doing something that I have been calling for over the past several years. With CEO Steve Ballmer set to leave the company (read “Why Microsoft May Finally be Set to Turn its Fortune Around”), the former Wall Street favorite is making plans to aggressively expand its presence in the growing mobility market. How? Through its proposed acquisition of the cell phone business Nokia Corporation (NYSE/NOK), a deal valued at up to $7.2 billion, in an effort to expand in a sector dominated by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ/AAPL) and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd.

U.S. Airline Industry - The Unfriendly Skies / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Peter_Schiff

As if the federal government were not already doing enough to kill the U.S. airline industry with restrictive workplace rules, over-regulation, and a monetary policy that supports higher fuel prices, earlier this month anti-trust authorities at the Justice Department blocked the merger between American Airlines and US Air. (Unbelievably, the regulatory roadblock was thrown up more than a year after the two companies had agreed to terms, and after great expense has been incurred to integrate operations). Although long suffering investors had hoped that the merger would allow the beleaguered airline to finally exit bankruptcy, in the days after the surprise announcement, AMR stock almost fell as much as 60%.

Expert healthcare company watcher Andrew Fein of H.C. Wainwright & Co. knows how the sausage is made in the stock analyst factory. And he doesn't pull any punches: In this interview with The Life Sciences Report, Fein dishes out praise for sticking to sellside fundamentals and suggests skimming off bloggers who have yet to earn their analytical chops. He rounds out the menu by naming biotech companies with the potential to rise to the top of the simmering biotech market.

Recall a few weeks back when I discussed the upward moves in Chinese stocks. (Read “They’re Not Popular, But These Stocks May Offer Opportunity After All.”)

George Leong writes: Steve Ballmer’s run as the head of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ/MSFT) is winding down after his somewhat surprising decision to exit the company within a year.

War on the Horizon as Defense Stocks Outperform / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Clif_Droke

After two years of winding down the U.S. military's presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, the rumblings of war are being felt in Syria. Calls for American intervention in Syria's civil war have been increasing lately, especially after reports indicate that Syria's government used chemical weapons on civilians.

According to a Reuters /Ipsos poll, 60 percent of Americans surveyed said they don't favor the U.S. intervening in Syria, even if it's confirmed that chemical warfare is being used in that country. Only 9 percent believe President Obama should act now.
