How JPMorgan and the London Whale Can Sink Your Stocks Portfolio / Companies / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: In the spring of 2012, JPMorgan Chase & Co.'s (NYSE: JPM) not-so-rogue trader, Bruno Iksil, better known as the London Whale, made a series of derivatives trades on credit default swaps that only appeared to be unauthorized.

In reality, those trades were just one side of JPMorgan betting against the other in a doom struck hedging strategy.

Obama Wades In on the Apple-Samsung Patent War / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: President Barack Obama added an unexpected twist to the patent wars when he took the extraordinarily rare step of vetoing the International Trade Commission's own trade sanctions against Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) last week.

The trade commission had ruled that Apple violated some of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd's patents, and the commission was set to ban outright several key Apple products, such as the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and the iPad 2 and 3G models - all sold by AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), among others.

The Technological Evolution of Nonlethal Weapons / Companies / Technology

By: Casey_Research

By Doug Hornig, Senior Editor

The rise of humans from fearful creatures huddled around cave fires to the dominant species on the planet largely parallels the evolution of weaponry. Different subgroups rose and fell, spreading their culture or declining in influence as they either came up with the new best thing with which to slaughter their neighbors or fell behind in the innovation game.

Club, axe, spear, atlatl, sword, longbow, crossbow, catapult, gun, bomb, artillery, really big bomb—all have had their day.

Improve The Productivity Of Your Dividend Growth Portfolio With Technology Stocks / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Charles_Carnevale

Introduction and General Observations of the Information Technology Sector

Dividend growth investors seeking quality dividend growth stocks to fund their retirement portfolios have not historically looked to the Information Technology sector.  Traditionally, the Information Technology sector has been associated with higher growth and higher risk. However, in addition to higher growth, many technology companies are also very cyclical in nature. Another common attribute for tech companies is how they have traditionally utilized their capital.  In order to finance their high-growth needs, the majority of Information Technology companies have traditionally not paid dividends. Instead, they used their capital to fund future growth.  However, another contributing factor to the no dividend policy of Information Technology companies was the nascent nature of this industry.

Is The Financial Crisis Over For Financial, Banking Stocks? / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Charles_Carnevale

The cause of the financial crisis of 2007 -2008, also known as the Great Recession of 2008, is attributed to many different theories.  However, one of the most common theories is an easy money regulatory environment that led to an abundance of subprime loans, which in turn inflated real estate prices to bubble levels.  Additionally, many blame the Financial sector, predominantly the money center banks, for exploiting the lax lending requirements with reckless and greedy behavior.  They did this through the creation of and proliferation of high risk bundled subprime mortgages (CMO’s, etc.) and the creation of other high risk and complex financial products that were being pawned off as safe investments. 

Additionally, many attribute the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 as a major contributor to the financial crisis, which effectively removed the separation between investment banks and depository banks in the United States.  There was plenty of blame to go around, which included avarice, greed and excesses on Wall Street, and the failure of regulators to include many of the most prominent credit rating agencies.

Amazon.com Creates 5,000 Jobs, Destroys 25,000 in the Process? / Companies / Employment

By: Alex_Daley

The Technology Jobs Conundrum

The past few weeks have seen the tech and business media abuzz about a not-so-little warehouse in Tennessee. That's because this distribution center, opening its doors with a burst of fanfare and even a few visits from nearby politicians, isn't a jumping-off point for Macy's or Target. Instead, the warehouse is the latest in a series of new locations being opened by retail technology giant Amazon.com.

The jobs this new mega-warehouse is purported to create: 5,000.

Don't Be Fooled by the Media, Boeing Stock is a Buy / Companies / Investing 2013

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon writes: I was at work here at the office last Monday night when I heard about the Boeing 737 crash at New York's LaGuardia Airport. A nose wheel on the jetliner had apparently given way after a hard touchdown just after 5:30 p.m. (EDT), leading to a crash that injured about eight of the 150 folks on board

"Uh-oh," I thought to myself. "Here comes another feeding frenzy."

You're an exceptionally sharp group of folks, so you know what I'm getting at here.

Investors Look at Health Care Sector Stocks for a Healthier Portfolio / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Charles_Carnevale

The Health Care sector is comprised of many diverse companies, as can be seen from the list of subsectors provided below.  Historically the Health Care sector has been comprised of a significant number of companies with above-average growth rates of earnings.  Consequently, a majority of the companies comprising the Health Care sector could be thought of as growth stocks over dividend growth stocks.

One of the primary reasons for this was that the sector was benefiting from the tailwinds of the powerful demographic forces of an aging population.  Additionally, there were many scientific advances that also provided above-average growth to many companies in this sector.  As a result, health care stocks were once considered defensive because they were mostly unaffected by economic weakness.

Garrett Baldwin writes: U.S. and global companies may be sitting atop piles of cash as the stock market hovers near all-time highs, but total capital expenditures likely will fall over the next two years.

Reductions in capital expenditure in heavy spending commodity sectors, such as energy and mining, will drive down inflation-adjusted spending by 2 percent in 2013 and 5 percent in 2014, according to Standard and Poor's.

But the microscope is not just fixated on Rackspace, it's also focused on the entire cloud computing sector.

This sector is growing rapidly with analysts speculating enthusiastically that the overall cloud market could reach anywhere from $40 billion to $70 billion by 2016 or earlier.
