By: Profit_Confidential

Investing in Hot Macau - China’s Version of Las Vegas / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: Gambling is akin to trading, but with much more risk of failure. Everyone knows Las Vegas as the gambling capital of the United States, but Macau is hot and growing.

Huge Defense Sector Cuts, What This Means for Your Investments / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: March 1 is a very big day for many people. Unless Obama and the Republicans make a deal prior to that date, billions of dollars in spending cuts will be enacted.

By: Investment_U

David Fessler writes: In China, 2013 is the Year of the Snake. According to the website HanBan.com, this means that 2013 should be a year of steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary in order to achieve goals.

In the U.S., 2013 might well be called the Year of the Tanker Car, particularly if you are an oil producer in the Bakken or the Eagle Ford shale formations.

Investors, You Need to Stick with the Cheap Retailers / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: The retail sector continues to show decent growth, which is encouraging given the lack of strong jobs growth.

On an ex-auto basis, sales grew at 0.3%, which was the same as November, but below the Briefining.com estimate of 0.5%.

Your Credit Card May Soon be Worthless, Visa's Days Are Numbered / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlex Daley, Chief Technology Investment Strategist: "Your credit card may soon be worthless."

That's the notion being promoted by many in the investment industry these days. They are referring to a new technology that is supposedly Visa's worst nightmare and a threat to the status quo of the credit-card industry worth billions. And they are positioning one small company as the holder of the secret keys to cash in on what is promised to be a multibillion-dollar shift in the way we pay for everything from a candy bar to an oil change. But is it really true? Will this technology really turn the credit-card industry on its head?

By: Doug_Horning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Hornig, Casey Research Writes: In Mike Judge's wicked 1999 satire of corporate culture, Office Space, there's a delightful character named Milton. Poor Milton. He's all but invisible. No one likes him, no one talks to him, and coworkers are forever stealing his stapler. Management doesn't notice him enough to fire him. Instead, Milton is shunted from desk to desk, each time losing more of that precious commodity denoted by the film's title, until he finally winds up alone in the basement, where he plots the delicious revenge he'll take on the company.

Electric Car Dreamride To Nowhere - French Style / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKEEP ON TRUCKIN'
More precisely, keep on charging. Among the biggest no-no items on potential buyers, drivers and owners minds, when it concerns electric cars and vehicles, or "EVs", is the time needed to charge the things. Just slightly behind that no-no is the already well known horror of potential or possible EV owners: running out of 'juice', that is a flat battery and no way to charge it, on a Sunday night, in winter, far from anywhere. All they needed to do was buy a hybrid!

By: InvestmentContrarian

The Reason Fast-food Stocks Should Be Amongst Your Top PicksChipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE/CMG) is one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite to eat. Yet, despite some stellar growth, the stock broke below $300.00 on Wednesday and has been steadily losing ground since trading at a 52-week high of $442.40 in April.

How Many European Carmakers: Will Survive? / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It is unclear if all carmakers will survive without governmental help,” was the terse one-liner from the CEO, Hans Dieter Poetsch, of the VW-Porsche automaker group at the start of the Paris Motor Show.

For some European carmakers in an industry credited by carwatcher ACEA, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association with an annual turnover and revenues close to 500 billion euros in 2010, employing a total of around 12.5 million Europeans (direct and indirect), the end could come rather soon. For Dieter Poetsch and many analysts, carmakers in southern Europe producing small cars with low profit margins per car - and declining sales - will be the first to go. The bad news is that declining sales and an unremitting price war is causing industry wide and continent wide damage.
