How Theater Chains Can Fight Netflix / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Submissions

Netflix has just inked a four-movie deal with Adam Sandler that threatens to shake up the big theater chains by radically altering the way movies are distributed and viewed.  It will allow Netflix to produce movies and to stream them directly to customers’ home entertainment centers and computers, completely bypassing exhibit houses.  The online Washington Post put this ominous headline on the story: “Why the Adam Sandler deal with Netflix could doom theaters…”  Exhibitors, especially big chains like Regal Cinemas, Cinemark and AMC, are understandably upset.  But they needn’t be. When they come to their senses, they’ll realize not only that they have the means to compete with online movie producer/distributors such as Netflix , but to do so in a way that promises to usher in a golden era for the film medium itself.

Leading Stock Market Sectors Breaking Down – Internet & Social Stocks / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Chris_Vermeulen

In July I showed talked about the Russell 2K index and how it was underperforming the broad market. I went on to explain what it likely meant was in store for the US stock market this fall. The outlook was negative, just in case you were wondering…

This week I want to talk about two different sectors that have often lead the broad market in rallies and corrections over the years. These sectors have underperformed the broad market much like that of small cap stocks, and this does not bode well for investors going into fall.

See, when I was in the first grade, I met none other than U.S. astronaut John Glenn, the first person to orbit Earth, and a man many will know about as an almost mythic figure in the book and movie The Right Stuff.

Kohl's and The Rest of The Retailers are in Deep Doo Doo / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: James_Quinn

"Facts are stubborn things, but statistics are pliable." ~ Mark Twain

I never believe government manufactured numbers. They will always be adjusted, massaged, and manipulated to achieve a happy ending for the propagandists attempting to control and fleece the sheep. Yesterday, the government produced retail sales numbers for August that were weak and the corporate MSM propaganda machine immediately threw up bold headlines declaring how strong these numbers were. Positive stories were published on the interwebs and Wall Street hack economists were rolled out on CNBC, where the bubble headed bimbos and prostitutes for the status quo like Jim Cramer and Steve Liesman declared the recovery gaining strength. Woo Hoo.

Five Industries Worried About Peak Oil / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: OilPrice_Com

The debate over the impact of peak oil has been raging for decades. Although few deny that the end of mass oil consumption is drawing nearer, educated estimates now range between 2020 and 2030. But more important than the timeframe of peak oil are its consequences. Some seek to spell the end of life as we know it, so reliant is the world upon black gold. Others, equally extreme in their views, embrace the news, looking forward to a time when humanity will magically clean up its act.

Second, we have 13 planes that go off radar in Europe on June 5. No one knows why

Third, a Iraqi Warlord released by the US (for unknown reasons) is now capturing Baghdad and taking over Oil.

Defense Tech Stock Plays Scorching the Market / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: After decades of working with defense technology companies, I know the ebb and flow of military spending all too well.

I remember that when the Cold War came to an end, the nation's political leaders were talking enthusiastically about the so-called "peace dividend."

That's Washington-speak for Pentagon budget cuts that always seem to come after a major conflict has ended.

Electronic Cigarettes Shake Up the Tobaco Industry / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Richard_Cox

In the last few years, we have seen relatively few examples of true market innovation.  Progress in cell phone, computer, and automobile technology has stalled and this makes it difficult to identify companies that are poised for real growth over the next 5-10 years.  But it looks as though an exception can be made here in the electronic cigarette industry, which has made some major advances in recent years when compared to the traditional cigarette products that have seemingly been around forever.  These innovations will have a major impact not only on the health of cigarette smokers but on the broader trajectory in many areas of the marketplace, as well.  Here, we will look at some of the ways electronic cigarettes will alter the landscape -- both from a health perspective and from a market perspective.

Global Middle-Class Growth Boosting These Stocks Worldwide / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: The current drama surrounding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been riveting and indicative of how the superlative growth in travel in the airline sector has encompassed Asia along with the world.

For years now, since the recession hit in 2008, I have been increasingly bullish on the airline sector across the globe, but especially in the emerging markets like China, India, Eastern Europe, and Asia. Helping to drive up the demand for travel in the airline sector has been the upward push in wealth creation in many of these regions, which has given more people the ability to afford air travel.

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.

The Invisible Power Behind the World's Best Stock Market Investments / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: DailyWealth

Porter Stansberry writes: Over the years, I've explained a lot of Wall Street's "secrets"...

I've explained how discounted bonds are sometimes vastly better investments than stocks. I've covered how selling naked puts is almost always safer and more profitable than buying stocks outright.

These concepts (and others) are critical to active investors. They all play a role in giving you the tools you need to increase your returns. You ought to know all about them and be able to use them tactically to take advantage of opportunities in the market.

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.

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.

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%.

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.

A Tale of Two Car Manufacturers - Proton and Hyundai / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

Proton or (Perusahaan Otomobil Nasional Berhad) was incepted in 1985 by the then Prime Minister of Malaysia with the hope that it will help Malaysia hasten its industrialisation program in order achieve a develop nation status by 2020.  Mahathir reckoned that to complement this vision a ‘national car’ program will be best option to fast track the process. His penchant for starting up a ‘national car’ program is partly due to the success of other countries in their ‘national car’ project which subsequently progresses into nurturing successful car manufacturers and a chain of parts suppliers. To understand a bit on the history of ‘national car’ we present below the time line of various country’s national car project.
