Here’s Why You Should Look for Dividend Stocks — and How / Companies / Dividends

By: John_Mauldin

BY TONY SAGAMI : I love dividends, and I’m not alone.

One of the biggest dividend lovers of all is Warren Buffett. He has more than 90% of the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio invested in dividend-paying stocks.

Sure, a 1%, 2%, or 3% dividend may not sound like a fortune, but what looks like small payouts really adds up.

For the first seven months of 2016, the S&P 500 was up 6.3%.With dividends, the total return increased to 7.7%. That’s an extra 22%!

BY TONY SAGAMI : I got a lot of positive feedback on my recent column, “Anatomy of a Successful Short Sale.” It’s no surprise, though. Spotting failing companies is as useful and lucrative as uncovering hidden gems.

Now let’s put theory into practice and take a look at a stock that my subscribers are currently shorting.

By: Mike_Shedlock

European bank shares are down for the second day following a last minute bailout package aimed at Italian banks one day before a stress test showed Monte dei Paschi would be insolvent in an adverse scenario.

Sernova, Diabetes and Haemophilia / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_Mills

Paul Lacey was a researcher at Washington University when, in 1972, he cured some diabetic rats by transplanting the islet cells from healthy rats into diabetic ones.

Over the next two decades researchers made many attempts to apply the procedure to humans. Unfortunately no one was successful. By the early 1990’s most scientists had come to the conclusion that islet-cell transplantation was a lost cause.

Drs. James Shapiro, Jonathan Lakey and colleagues from the University of Alberta in Edmonton were successful at improving the treatment of a select group with severe diabetes through development of the Edmonton protocol in the late 1990s.

How Hostess Has Adapted Even the Twinkie to a Changing World / Companies / Corporate News

By: Rodney_Johnson

In 2004, Hostess Brands declared bankruptcy. At the time, I wrote that the maker of Twinkies, Ho Hos, and Snoballs was suffering because of demographic trends.

As millennials aged past elementary and middle school, they quit munching on such snacks. With fewer kids in the younger age cohorts, slower Twinkie sales seemed inevitable

Monsanto, Bayer, and the Push for Corporate Cannabis / Companies / Cannabis

By: Ellen_Brown

As detailed in my recent article “The War on Weed is Winding Down,” the health benefits of cannabis are now well established. It is a cheap, natural alternative effective for a broad range of conditions, and the non-psychoactive form known as hemp has thousands of industrial uses. At one time, cannabis was one of the world’s most important crops. There have been no recorded deaths from cannabis overdose in the US, compared to about 30,000 deaths annually from alcohol abuse (not counting auto accidents), and 100,000 deaths annually from prescription drugs taken as directed. Yet cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance (“a deadly dangerous drug with no medical use and high potential for abuse”), illegal to be sold or grown in the US.

Deutsche Bank or Dumb Bank? / Companies / Credit Crisis 2016

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Deutsche bank (DBK) shares dropped to fresh new lows with the various news announcements, as well as a feeling that Germany will not be capable of bailing out the bank. The imminent outcome for DBK is ‘bankruptcy’ while the world will have to bear the brunt of the fallout from all of the complicated ‘derivatives’ which are being held by Deutsche Bank.

DBKs’ outstanding ‘derivatives’ exposure is 20x the German GDP and 5x the Eurozone GDP.

Italian Banks & Moving The Risk During Crisis / Companies / Credit Crisis 2016

By: Dan_Amerman

Europe is changing by the hour and the day at this point. In this analysis, I'm going to take a quick look at critical events that have happened in Italy in the last day or so, and how they relate to my recent Video Guide To Bail-Ins series. I will be using three current Bloomberg articles that came out in the space of about 7 hours as references.

Italy did a bail-in of four banks at the end of 2015, which inflicted bail-in losses on many individual savers, using the process explained in Video #2 of the series, "Comparison Of Bail-Outs vs Bail-Ins For Banks", linked below.

Will PayPal Ever Hit Its Stock Price Target? / Companies / Corporate News

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Can shares of PayPal, which began trading as an independent company last year after its spinoff from eBay, manage to reach its share price target estimated by analysis at $45 a share? According to comments on Twitter and StockTwits, a financial social media platform from back when PayPal first began trading, many thought that this was certainly possible. Right at the beginning, PayPal shares were closing at around $40, valuing PayPal at $49.4 billion. However, currently, PayPal share prices are valued at $35.08, just under $10 less than their share price target for 2016.

Details Behind Semiconductor Stocks Leadership / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Gary_Tanashian

I am prompted to write this article because TA’s are starting to pick up on the Semiconductor index’s bullishness and even the overwhelmingly bearish website, the Daily Reckoning is calling bull on the Semiconductor sector.

These Tech Stocks Are Ready to Lead the Market. Before Buying, Read This…

The author uses only charts to clue readers in to this little secret (Semis led the market down and now they are leading it up) but there is much more to the story, and since it has been our story (for its upside and downside market leadership) since 2013 I’ll lay claim before the whole enchilada opens up and every wise guy with a chart or a stock pick is touting the Semis.

Here’s a Trillion-Dollar Investment Opportunity for Those Few with No Debt / Companies / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: John_Mauldin

BY TONY SAGAMI

Politicians and central bankers throw the word “trillion” around as if it were chump change, but a trillion dollars is a huge mountain of money.

A trillion is equal to a thousand billions (1,000 x 1,000,000,000).

1,000 = one thousand

1,000,000 = one million

1,000,000,000 = one billion

1,000,000,000,000 = one trillion

Stock Investors Get Higher Returns and More Dividend Income - In Less Time With Less Risk / Companies / Dividends

By: Charles_Carnevale

Investing in blue-chip dividend growth stocks such as the Dividend Aristocrats or Champions has become very popular with retirees.  This is understandable considering the low interest rate environment we find ourselves in.  Traditional fixed income investments do not currently offer enough yield for the retired investor to live on.  Consequently, current low interest rates, coupled with the possibility of a steadily increasing level of dividend income have made dividend growth stocks a viable and even attractive alternative.

When choosing the appropriate dividend growth stock, many dividend growth investors will rightfully focus on the company’s dividend record and dividend growth more than they will its price history.  However, this can be a detrimental practice if the investor ignores valuation.  Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon practice.  There are many dividend growth investors who will invest in a blue-chip Dividend Aristocrat even when it is overvalued at the time.  Many of these investors argue that since the dividend is what is of paramount importance, being out of a blue-chip will cause them to generate less dividend income.  To these investors, a dividend missed is a dividend lost.
