Apple iWatch the Next Technology War, Google Glass Fires First Shots / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: Coming less than a year after Google unveiled its Google Glass Web-connected eyeglasses, reports that an Apple "iWatch" is in the works emphatically confirm that the battle is now joined for dominance over the next wave of tech - wearable computing.

According to the reports, Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) has 100 people working on an iWatch users would wear on their wrists, but that would have many of the same capabilities as an iPhone.

Is Microsoft Stock Price About to Break Out of Its 10-Year Slumber? / Companies / Microsoft

By: Money_Morning

David Mamos writes: Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) is the world's largest software company. It's also the world's largest afterthought for most investors.

"It's an ancient relic," they say, "Apple and Google are the only games in town."

Or there is always this complaint: "Microsoft has no attractive products and there is no growth"...blah, blah, blah.

The Best Way to Invest in the "Golden Age of Materials Science" / Companies / Technology

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: How often has your smartphone died during a conference call with your biggest client, or while you're enjoying the highlight replays of your favorite team's latest win?

A new substance that you've probably never heard of could end that worry - and a few others, as well.

Just created at the University of Buffalo, this advanced substance is billed as a portable hydrogen fuel cell. Just add water, and the chemical reaction will yield an instant way to charge your cellphone's dead battery.

Where Goldman Sachs Will Make Money in 2013 / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein spoke with Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle at the company's technology conference in San Francisco today. Blankfein said he has no plans to leave Goldman: "The combination of this being who I am and what I do and having absolutely no other interests makes me think this is what I'll be doing for a while."

Blankfein said that while he "would love to be wanted" for the role of Treasury Secretary, "that seems like such a distant hypothetical."

China Year of the Snake… U.S. Year of the Tank Car / Companies / Sector Analysis

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.

Are You Picking the Right Stock for Higher Oil Prices? / Companies / Oil Companies

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the most difficult aspects of investing is adjusting one’s economic forecast to the dynamic and ever-changing global economic environment. An investor cannot be so dogmatic that they are unable to shift their economic forecast as new data come out.

For much of the second half of last year, there were many fears that China was going to encounter a significant slowdown, and many analysts had been lowering their economic forecast for that nation. Recent data, however, show that perhaps the Chinese economy might be able to rebound, at least in the short term.

Electric Vehicles to Charge Up as Crude Oil Rises / Companies / US Auto's

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: With the outlook for the U.S. and global economies looking more encouraging, we have seen a corresponding upward push by oil prices on the chart.

An issue for us is that oil prices continue to be largely dictated by the folks in the Middle East, namely the 11-member oil cartel Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Companies (OPEC). At this time, OPEC feels oil prices of $100.00 a barrel are reasonable, and $80.00 is viewed as the low point that is acceptable for oil prices. This might be fine with OPEC, as it adds to their rich coffers; but with the average price of gasoline at $3.54 a gallon, consumers aren’t happy with these high oil prices.

Investment Opportunity Due to a S&P Lawsuit? / Companies / Investing 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Sometimes the best investment opportunity arises when a situation looks the bleakest. When a firm’s earnings outlook is stable and there is little volatility in the stock, this makes it extremely difficult to identify an investment opportunity, since all the good news is usually priced into the stock.

An interesting situation is taking place now, and I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner. The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) is taking the Standard & Poor’s (S&P) unit of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. (NYSE/MHP) to court, alleging that the ratings agency was involved in fraudulent activities.

Can "Perceptual Computing" Help Intel Get Its Groove Back? / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: When you peruse the tech-dominated headlines these days, a lot of the talk is about how smartphones and tablets are taking over for notebooks and laptops - which had taken over for desktop PCs.

But with the confusing mix of keyboards, track pads, touch-screens, and even voice and gesture commands that are in use today, there are at least as many different ways to interact with all those computing devices as there are different devices themselves.

Another Look at Corporate Cash Hoarding / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Andy_Sutton

With Graham Mehl…  In the most recent copy of the St. Louis Fed’s ‘Regional Economist’, two of its researchers query the status of corporate cash. Specifically, they’re interested in why companies are hoarding so much of it. Normally, such an article wouldn’t be noteworthy, but in this case we feel that delving into such an issue will be of assistance in terms of helping the average person to understand the truly broken nature of our economic and monetary systems.

During the course of the article, the researchers pose what would be considered normally expected explanations for this pile up of cash: tax-avoidance, structural changes in the business environment, and even the cost of research and development. We don't doubt that these are probably among the subset of correct answers, perhaps with a few additions varying by particular fields. However, we found it much more interesting and instructive to ask where the cash came from than why it was being accumulated. The media, especially in America, has gone out of its way to portray a robust economic recovery. This would lead one to conclude that these piles of cash came from business activity. We’ll see if the data and trends validate that conclusion.

How to Think about Stock Prices in Today’s Volatile Markets / Companies / Investing 2013

By: Charles_Carnevale

Price volatility is an unavoidable aspect of investing in common stocks. During periods when emotions are dominating reason, price volatility can become more pronounced than is normal during calmer times. The insidious part of this fact is that the more volatile stock prices are, the more fear and stress they generate, which only feeds even greater volatility. Of course, the same can be said when greed raises its ugly head. The purpose of this article is to provide some logic and reason that can be applied to stock price volatility that simultaneously weakens its potential damage.

Meredith Whitney Says Bank of America is Stock to Own Without a Doubt / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Meredith Whitney appeared on "Bloomberg Surveillance" this morning and told Tom Keene and Sara Eisen and said that she's "uninspired" by Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat. Whitney said, "We don't really know Mike Corbat's agenda...He didn't give us an agenda and he didn't even give us a time stamp for when he's going to give us an agenda, so it left people a little bit uninspired."

Whitney also said, "I think that Citi does ok, but I think Bank of America is the stock to own this year without a doubt." She also said that the S&P fraud charge is "very hard to believe and I think that's going to be very hard to prove."

Google Isn’t as Expensive as You May Believe / Companies / Google

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: For all of you who are attracted by the battered price of Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ/FB), I suggest you keep on reading: Google Inc. (NASDAQ/GOOG) is the top player in the Internet space, in spite of it hitting an all-time record high of $776.60 last Friday, and here’s why.

My stock analysis indicates that some of you may feel that, at nearly $800.00 a share, Google is valued at way too lofty a price. Moreover, some may be spooked by the recent collapse of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ/AAPL) on the price chart after trading at over $705.00 a share in September 2012. What I would say to you is that Google is not Apple, and it’s definitely a much better company than Facebook, based on my stock analysis.

Which Technology Stock to Own for the Next Five Years / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Profit_Confidential

Technology stocks are not for the faint of heart. The business cycle exists, and companies have to continually re-invent themselves or get left in the dust, especially among technology stocks, where consumers will pay almost anything for innovation. The smartphone industry is the perfect example. BlackBerry (NASDAQ/BBRY;TSX/RIM), formerly Research In Motion Limited, dropped the ball on what was an outstanding leading position in the smartphone revolution. How about personal computers (PCs)? Dell Inc. (NASDAQ/DELL) is now a partial contributor to its own operational weakness because of the extreme commoditization of the PC that it helped foster. But Dell’s been struggling on the stock market for the last five years.

One of the most interesting aspects of options is the myriad opportunities presented for high probability trades for those who understand the details of option behavior.

For example, I have recently discussed the routinely observed collapse of implied volatility immediately following an earnings release. We have looked at several examples of profitable trades constructed to benefit from this expected decline in implied volatility.
