Can You Profit From the 'Death' of the Newspaper? / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMore importantly, should companies like News Corporation (NWS:NASDAQ), Gannett Co., Inc. (GCI:NYSE), CBS Corporation (CBS:NYSE), Viacom, Inc. (VIA.B:NYSE), and Journal Communications (JRN:NYSE) be on your "short sell" list?

You would think a resounding "yes" would be the response to the question when asked to most people under the age of 35. I think they are right, at least partially... Let me explain.

Stock Market February Seasonality / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFebruary is an interesting month by seasonality. Typically the start of six months of underperformance for precious metals and the start of six months of outperformance for oil, it is also the second weakest month of the calendar for stocks.

On this occasion I expect Gold to buck seasonal weakness, given that it has been consolidating for the last 3 months during its seasonally strong time and is now signalling a buy:

Airline Profits Grounded by Rising Fuel Prices and Bad Weather / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: After barely scraping through a two-year recession and a global financial meltdown, the airline industry's struggle to sustain a turnaround is now being threatened by rising fuel prices and nasty winter weather.

Civil unrest in Egypt combined with surging demand have already boosted oil prices by 20% since last June, setting off alarm bells among the nation's carriers. Now, a series of winter storms that began in December has slashed airlines' revenues by tens of millions of dollars.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal Strategist Jacek Dzierwa has just returned from another research trip to Latin America where he visited Peru, Chile and Brazil. Travel is important for our tacit knowledge because many of the world’s best opportunities aren’t discovered behind a Bloomberg terminal or an earnings report.

But with so many players setting up shop - and so many potential new mobile-payment services on the menu - the safest profit play for investors may be the one that's able to deliver all these services to end -users.

U.S. Retailers Canary in the Coal Mine / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome people have contested my statement that there are thousands more retail stores in the US today than there were in 2007. Yes, many mom and pop stores have gone out of business, but the big boys continued to expand in the face of reality. The mall based mega-retailers dominate the retail landscape in this country. Here is a partial list of the biggest retailers in the US and their store counts.

Cyber Monday: The "Online Black Friday" Signals Shift in U.S. Holiday Shopping Trends / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: U.S. retailers are hoping consumers' growing shift to online shopping will carry Black Friday's spending momentum through this week, which kicked off with Internet-only deals and discounts on yesterday's "Cyber Monday."

The Monday after Thanksgiving in the past few years has evolved into one of the biggest online shopping days of the year. The number of Cyber Monday shoppers has almost doubled in the past five years, from 59 million in 2005 to an estimated 106.9 million in 2010, according to the National Retail Federation (NRF).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarc Lichtenfeld writes: Forget the breathless buildup to Black Friday – the much-ballyhooed Thanksgiving sales event.

In an effort to pre-empt the frantic holiday shopping season, America’s retailers are already in full-on sales mode, having instituted “Black November” instead.

Seven Ways to Profit from the GOP’s Pledge to Sustain Defense Spending / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: Investors typically hate it when a stock bombs, but there are also times when bombs can make for good investments - and right now could be one of them.

With the Republicans seizing control of the U.S. House of Representatives and making gains in the Senate in Tuesday's mid-term elections, it now seems far more likely that the GOP will be able to honor its pledge not to cut defense outlays as it seeks to rein in discretionary government spending.

Outstanding Investor Profit Opportunity as China Goes Gaga for Gaming / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Doug_Horning

Doug Hornig, Editor, Casey’s Extraordinary Technology writes: Developing nations are playing technological leapfrog.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the developed world, when we think of technology, the roots of much of what we do today were born decades, or even a century, ago. While the evolution has been fast paced, the progression from there through today is a straight line from the technologies that preceded them. A television program is still a television program. A phone call is still a phone call. The devices might look different and certainly do more, but the lineage is obvious.

Stock Market Sector Strength Indicates Returning Confidence / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

Analysts and economists often refer to the strength or weakness in certain key industrial groups as evidence of a recovering or declining economy. During the recovery phase of a typical business cycle, there is usually greater buying emphasis on industry sectors that reflect a more optimistic stance. This wave of confidence can shift short-term to a more defensive approach.

An In-depth Look at U.S. Retail Stocks / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile Americans haven’t completely abandoned their spendthrift ways, there’s no doubt that the typical shopper is thinking a lot more about their purchases … and in general, our nation is revisiting the idea of saving for a rainy day.

I’ll discuss the broad implications of this shift some other time. Today, I’d like to talk about the specific companies most affected by our nation’s newfound frugality — the retailers.

Consumer Debt Financed Demand Deleveraging Reality Check for Retailers / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHaving worked for a big box retailer for 14 years, I understand the dynamics of a high growth rollout of stores as a key to increasing market share and profits. Some of the best retail names in the US have practiced the identical strategy of concentrating many stores in each market to drive the small competitors out of business. This strategy worked wonders for Lowes, Wal-Mart, Target and Kohl's during the early part of this decade. The combination of solid same store sales and opening new stores is a fantastic combination during good times. The results actually make the CEOs of these companies think they are brilliant. Their store expansion models based on rosy assumptions are followed like they can't go wrong.
