BHP And RIO – Are Stocks Different From Futures? No / Companies / Company Chart Analysis

By: Michael_Noonan

We asked a metals specialist to select two stocks of interest. BHP and RIO were the choices. Are stocks any different from futures? Absolutely not. Why not? All markets are a function of supply and demand. When demand is greater, price will rise; when supply is greater, price will decline. It is the essence for any market, stocks or futures.

As a norm, we do not analyze stocks. In fact, we know nothing about BHP and RIO, beyond assuming they are mining stocks. Our premise is, when you reduce any market to price and volume, you get the most accurate information available in order to make buy/sell decisions, regardless of whatever is being analyzed.

Dividends, A Hidden Source of Double-Digit Annual Returns / Companies / Dividends

By: DailyWealth

Dan Ferris writes: If you're looking to earn 10% or more on your portfolio year after year, chances are, you're looking in the wrong place...

Chances are, you're buying risky, overpriced, "high growth" stocks that have a good story. Or you're buying risky, leveraged, "high income" stocks. Either way, over the long term, you're more likely to lose money than make it.

My wife worked for Levi Strauss & Co. many years ago. They were a terrific company, with a strong commitment to product quality, their employees and their community. I was so impressed that I remain loyal and almost exclusively buy Levi’s when I need a pair of jeans.

Government Subsidizes and Bankrupt Companies / Companies / Government Intervention

By: BATR

There are many forms of government subsidies. Ambitious politicians ingeniously design schemes to expand their power and repay their donor patrons. Opportunist corporate enterprises beg for favor to fund projects or guaranteed loans. The role of government venture capitalism has produced a much-sordid record for the taxpayer. The sheer concept of picking winners and losers is a pure political play that defies pragmatic prudence. In spite of this, actuality, the rush to squander public money is one of the few growth industries. The pitiful results of the predictable bankruptcy are the common fate of this flawed business model.

Bank stocks have been on a tear, moving up massively since the lows in June.

Who Will Be the Long-Term Winner in the Smartphone Market? / Companies / Mobile Technology

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: When it comes to creating an investment strategy, the crucial variable is determining where one believes corporate earnings will be in the future. Trying to determine what the future landscape will be, and not necessarily the current level of corporate earnings, is the real goal.

One of the strongest sectors in the global economy has been the growth of smartphones. The latest data from Gartner, Inc. (NYSE/IT), a leading technology research company, show that during the fourth quarter of 2012, smartphone sales reached 207.7 million units, up a staggering 38.3% from the same time period in 2011. (Source: “Gartner Says Worldwide Mobile Phone Sales Declined 1.7 Percent in 2012,” Gartner, Inc. web site, February 13, 2013, last accessed February 19, 2013.)

British Gas Shares - How the Bankers Conned Sid / Companies / Banksters

By: Paul_Tustain

What happens when you mix politicians, bankers and private "retail" investors...?

I am reminded of this story by Vince Cable. The UK's Business Secretary seeks to offload the British government's shares in Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) by giving them to something like 30 million British taxpayers.

Why I'd Buy Intel Over Apple / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: DailyWealth

Porter Stansberry writes: There aren't very many genuine technology companies.

Instead, almost all of the companies people call "tech stocks" are really companies that use technologies to make or to sell their products. They have no real technological advantage whatsoever. As a result, it is difficult for them to achieve the kind of scalability (expanding profit margins) that is the hallmark of great tech companies.

It isn't about financial tricks, dark pool trading, mergers and acquisitions, derivatives and securities bundling. It's about a time when real things were built by real people.

Googleplex - Living in a Google Paradise / Companies / Google

By: Pravda

From year to year, one and the same corporation is recognized as the leader on the list of most attractive employers. The previous year was no exception. Having conducted a survey among European students, Swedish consulting firm Universum discovered that the most attractive place to work for future economists is hi-tech giant Google.

However, Swedish students of technical profile were more Europe-oriented. They put BMW on top of the list.

What Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) Must Do to Soar Again / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Investment_U

Jason Jenkins writes: The story of Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) is an intriguing one.

Steve Jobs created a brand as strong as Coke (NYSE: KO) or Nike (NYSE: NKE). That’s a statement in itself. Apple’s brand loyalty is so strong, a Marco Rubio anti-Apple tweet induced responses of party switching. Who knew smartphone preference could be a political party deal breaker.

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.

Of all the areas that will be hit, I think the defense market sector will bear the brunt of the cutbacks and the future viability of corporate earnings in this sector is certainly in doubt.

George Leong writes: The major bank stocks all closed off 2012 near their respective 52-week highs; and they’ve started 2013 with a bang. Driven by an improving banking industry that is assuming less risky businesses while shoring up their balance sheets and producing stronger units, the KBW Bank Index is up eight percent, outperforming both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones.

It's happened several times in history...

It happened from 1996 to 1997... and again in 2005. (Heck, Chinese stocks soared fivefold in just two years starting in 2005, the last time the Chinese government wanted the stock market to go up.)

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.

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.
