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.

Is it the Right Time to Buy Crude Oil Stocks? / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Nadia_Simmons

Without a doubt, oil investors are focusing now mostly on news out of Washington, because it could have the greatest impact on crude prices this week. During the last session we saw this impact very clearly. Light crude fell throughout the session as hopes for a deal to end the U.S. debt crisis steadily diminished, and finally lost over 1%. It's worth noting that this is its lowest close since the beginning of July.

Time to Invest in "Ultra-Broadband" Tek Stocks Just Like Google / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: They used to call it dark fiber...

It was the 1990s. Telecom firms plowed billions into fiber optic networks to prepare for the coming explosion in traffic for the web, wireless systems, and computer networks.

Turns out, the supposed "gold rush" was just a few years ahead of its time. So, much of the fiber optic systems sat unused. They were quite literally dark - no light, no data, was shining down the high-speed cables.

Why Investors Should Buy the World's Most Hated Investment Right Now / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: DailyWealth

Dr Steve Sjuggerud writes: If you want to make hundreds-of-percent gains in stocks (without touching options), here's what you have to do...

• You have to buy a stock that's so cheap, if it doubles it will still be cheap.

• You have to buy a stock that's so hated, nobody else wants it.

That's the starting point for 100%-plus gains.

How to Profit From Putin’s Russian Dividend Stocks Plan / Companies / Investing 2013

By: Investment_U

David Fessler writes: Most income-oriented investors don’t have Vladimir Putin’s name in mind when searching for high-yield stocks. Perhaps they should.

In November 2012, Russia’s strong-arm leader began requiring that state-owned companies pay a minimum 25% of profit as dividends. The dividend plan, combined with the fact that Russian energy stocks are currently trading at bargain prices, makes for an appealing opportunity.

The company’s been on a roll since the mid-2000s, and up until recently, it reported excellent financial growth in its operations. But its most recent quarterly earnings came in shy of expectations and were a surprise for those who follow the business.

Small-Cap Stocks to Buy as the Little Guys Crush the Big Boys / Companies / Investing 2013

Don Miller writes: When it comes to stocks, it's easy to equate size with quality. But over the past year, smaller has been better, which means you need to be looking for small-cap stocks to buy.

In fact, the market's practically screaming that you should be putting some chips to work in the small-cap arena.

Apple’s Attempt to Enter Emerging Markets a Blunder? / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: When the next-generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ/AAPL) “iPhone 5S” and “iPhone 5C” were launched in mid-September, the company reported record sales over its first weekend of selling.

But there was a problem: the majority of the sales were for the iPhone 5S, while sales of the iPhone 5C lagged. The problem was the cost of the plastic-cased 5C; at around $100.00 with a two-year contract, the “cheaper” version simply cost too much, especially for the emerging markets like China, where Apple had high hopes for the iPhone 5C.

Obamacare Bust a Buying Opportunity for Stock Market Investors? / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: Obamacare is here after the Affordable Care Act was signed into law in March 2010. The Act dictates that all Americans, poor and rich, will need to have some form of insurance coverage.

Americans can select the appropriate level for them from the four levels of coverage—bronze, silver, gold, and platinum. The actual coverage in each plan is the same, with the difference being the deductable you have to pay. Moving from the bronze level to the platinum level, the deductable declines but the initial amount paid for the plan increases. Some Americans may be eligible for government assistance, depending on their financial situation, of course.
