US Global Defensive Consumer Franchises Stock Investing Theme / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Rory_Gillen

Having your cake and eating it too!

Sometimes you can have your cake and eat it! In investing that means buying stocks with good defensive growth characteristics. In May 2010, GillenMarkets introduced the US Global Defensive Consumer Franchise Theme for subscribers and the theme included eight US companies at that time—Coca Cola, McDonalds, Proctor & Gamble, Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Wal-Mart, Kellogg and Kraft. The European equivalents—Unilever, Diageo, Reckitt Benckiser and Kerry—were added to the theme in 2011. Kraft has since de-merged and we have substituted Mondelez (the spin off from Kraft) in Kraft's place.

Apple, Ebay and Visa - Stocks to Watch as Activist Investors Unlock Value / Companies / Investing 2014

By: DailyGainsLetter

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the most hotly debated topics these days is the role of activist investors. Some people have the impression that an activist investor is not a positive factor when it comes to long-term investing. I disagree, as many times, the investment strategy recommended by these activist investors ends up benefiting all shareholders.

By: Money_Morning

Terry Weiss writes: Michael Robinson has been following the auto sector since 1980 when he was a young analyst living in Detroit.

And over the last 34 years, he’s seen a lot of changes come to this iconic industry – both good and bad.

But he’s never seen anything like what’s happening now.

We Just Found The New King Of The Computer Industry / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: During the Depression-ridden 1930s, with the United States circling the financial abyss, an American industrialist named Thomas J. Watson Jr. gambled the future of his business-equipment company on an expansion plan that included wholesale hiring, investments in technology, and the construction of new factories.

For six years, Watson had his factories at full bore – churning out tabulating equipment there were no buyers for. But he believed in his plan and stayed with his strategy.

China Tech Stocks - The Hottest Investment Market on Earth / Companies / China Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: China has been dominating the headlines in recent days... And not in a good way.

Since late last week, worries about slowing growth, financial-system shenanigans, and the potential for an "Asian Contagion" type spillover have whacked global stocks - and have left folks wondering if the Chinese Miracle is over.

But China's kind of like a still-young tech venture: There are going to be reversals, it's going to be volatile, and it's normal to expect this kind of whipsaw market action.

Business Development Companies Investing / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Andrey Dashkov

Business Development Companies (BDCs) are publicly traded private debt and equity funds. I know that description isn’t terribly sexy, but keep reading and you’ll find there’s a lot to be excited about.

BDCs provide financing to firms too small to seek traditional bank financing or to do an IPO, but at the same time are too advanced to interest the earliest-stage venture capitalist. These companies are often near or at profitability and just need extra cash to reach the next milestone. Filling this void, BDCs provide funds to target companies in exchange for interest payments and/or an equity stake.

Triple Threat Firms Will Deliver Your Best Stocks Returns in 2014 / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: As readers of my Permanent Wealth Investor know, alternative money management firms are some of my favorite securities for investors to own.

After a great run in 2013, those firms will have a hard act to follow in 2014.

But, here's the thing: the same sources that drove income last year for these companies are firmly in place. And will be throughout 2014.

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: As a tech investor, I pay a lot of attention to the key trends reshaping our world and setting us up for massive gains.

I've also found that sometimes you can boil down great investment opportunities into a number. In this case its 11.4...the average age of a car on U.S. roads today.

Compared with the new connected car, that's like driving something out of the Flintstones.

Against the backdrop of a weak U.S. economy and waning consumer confidence, some big go-to stocks are beginning to show signs of distress—few more (right now) than makers of personal computers (PC makers).

Ebay PayPal Spinoff is a 'No-Brainer' / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Carl Icahn spoke with Bloomberg Television's Trish Regan and Adam Johnson today about his proposed PayPal spinoff, saying that eBay "hasn't don't as well as it should have" and a separation of PayPal is a "no brainer."

On Apple, Icahn said, "There's nothing wrong with the management at Apple...I just think that the board is just plain wrong in not taking advantage of a very undervalued situation at Apple and not using that capital."

Market Under-estimating Apples Growth Potential Following Moves into China / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: DailyGainsLetter

Sasha Cekerevac writes: When it comes to big-cap stocks, very few are larger than Apple Inc. (NASDAQ/AAPL).

But there’s one question many investors may be asking: is there an investment opportunity in Apple’s stock at current levels? I believe there may be, even after a strong move up since hitting a 52-week low in April at $385.10.

You have to be careful when looking at big-cap stocks and whether or not there is a strong investment opportunity going forward. Just because a stock has moved up over the past year, that doesn’t mean it’s necessarily overvalued.

High Car Loan Delinquencies Suggest Solid 2014 Sales for Automakers? / Companies / US Auto's

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: We expect American consumers to do a lot in this country; not least of which is to be the nation’s economic engine, after all, 70% of our gross domestic product (GDP) comes from consumer spending.

After years of strong stock market gains, America is still being bogged down with stagnant wages, high unemployment, and near-record-high food stamp usage—not the best formula for a nation that relies on consumers to spend, spend, spend. However, it is also contingent upon us being able to continually pay our bills. It’s the ebb and flow of consumerism.

Shell Profits Warning – The Shock That Wasn't / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Andrew_McKillop

New CEO Admits : Shell's new CEO Ben van Beurden has admitted corporate performance in 2013 was not what he expected from the group. Just two weeks after taking over the helm at end-December, he gave what journalists and commentators called “a shock profit warning”, saying that full-year profits excluding “special items” could be about 25% below 2012's performance. For the 4th Quarter of 2013 Shell's earnings before special items fell by about 50%.

New Way to Make Big Money in Biotech Stocks Sector / Companies / BioTech

By: Money_Morning

Ernie Tremblay writes: Traditional pharmaceutical blockbusters like Pfizer's Lipitor treat millions of patients at relatively low cost. It's a high-volume business model that has kept the pharmaceutical industry afloat for a long, long time. But over the past decade, out of necessity, a new model has taken the industry by storm.

As big moneymakers, like Lipitor, reach the "patent cliff," their intellectual rights protection are evaporating, and generic drug makers are taking over their markets.

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Amy Harder asked a pretty straight forward question in National Journal yesterday.

We’ve found vast new stores of domestic energy, she points out, but how do we move it around the country?

In light of the recent crude oil train accident in North Dakota, she brings up a pretty big point. The entire infrastructure network of pipelines, rail transit, barge traffic, and high-power lines hardly seems up to the task.

2014 Graphite Outlook: Price Rebound, Supply Shift and New End Uses / Companies / Graphene

By: Metals_Report

China's recent halting of flake graphite production in Pingdu, Shandong, made headlines, and has many investors wondering how supply may shift. Simon Moores, manager of Industrial Minerals Data, tells The Mining Report that he sees an interesting dynamic unfolding in the graphite space over the next five years. As buyers for steel and battery markets compete for limited graphite supplies, the winners will be companies that can deliver the best, tailor-made products. In the meantime, offtake agreements are signaling a new confidence in the sector.

The Mining Report: Simon, China is putting mining on the back burner while it cleans up damage done to the environment by mining and other industrial work. Graphite processing facilities, including those in Shandong Province, have halted flake graphite production. Will that affect prices?

How to Profit During High Inflation / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Don_Miller

Anyone with a technical degree will admit that college programmed them to consider "sell" a dirty word—to think salespeople use trickery to lure consumers into buying things they don't need. It makes no difference whether it's an investment product or a Pet Rock; anyone involved with selling or its evil twin marketing is guilty until proven innocent.

I spent the majority of my first career in sales and marketing, where I focused on negotiations and pricing. My clients included 40 of the top 500 US corporations. Now I work alongside some of the best economists and analysts in the world, and well, let's just say I bring a different perspective and experience base to our meetings.

Stock Market Investing 2014 - Top Picks / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Charles_Carnevale

My biggest pet peeve regarding common stock investing is how so many people have a tendency to over-generalize this asset class. Commonly held beliefs such as investing in stocks is risky, or that the stock market is overvalued, or that the fed is driving stock prices, etc., are just a few examples illustrating my point. In truth, common stocks are as individually different as people are individually different. When dealing with human beings, most reasonable thinking people would reject prejudicial statements. Personally, I believe we should have the same attitude about common stocks.

Instead of attempting to put them all in the same basket, I believe it is more rational and prudent to judge each common stock based on its own merits and attributes. This is why I continuously point out that it is a market of stocks and not a stock market. All stocks are not the same, therefore, they should not all be painted with the same broad brush. Consistent with this notion is that it also logically follows that not all investors are the same. Consequently, with these thoughts in mind, different strokes (stocks) for different folks (different goals, objectives and risk tolerances) is the more appropriate stance.
