Stock Market Investments - Hanging In There / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Roger_Conrad

I'm a glass-half-full guy. I always look for the bright side. And when things look their blackest, my every instinct is to buy, buy, buy.

I've also been in the investment business long enough to know that things don't always work out. Many times, where's there's smoke, there's a raging blaze that will scorch anyone who gets too close.

Businesses as cash-rich as investing do attract criminals. And you can't always trust the numbers.

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes : I'm here in Japan with my two sons, and I'm reminded of something my mother used to say — Ame futte ji katamaru . Translated, it means "Rained-on-ground hardens." It was her way of saying adversity builds character.

In just the last few days, the country has had to deal with both a powerful earthquake in the northwest and a gale force typhoon hitting its eastern coast.

US Energy Policy Changes and Potential Profits / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Talking policy is cheap. Creating and implementing something that works is an entirely different matter. Just ask the army of politicians, bureaucrats, industry executives, academics, consumer advocates and analysts now working on major potential regulatory changes in the energy and communications industries.

The newly installed Democratic Congress has stated two goals for energy policy: promoting US energy independence from the increasingly volatile Middle East and curtailing emissions of greenhouse gases that produce global warming.

Where Are All The Homebuilder Bargains? / Companies / US Housing

By: Brady_Willett

Brady Willett & Todd Alway write: With U.S. homebuilder confidence slipping to a 16-year low in June and subprime contagion fears omnipresent, no one seemed to notice when Toll Brothers reported a 93.5% increase in its ‘Provision for inventory write-downs/write-offs' for the six-months ending April 2007. However, as the losses and/or inventory write-downs at Toll and other builders mount in the coming quarters, the carnage could prove difficult to ignore. After all, following more than a decade of truly spectacular gains, the good times for U.S. homebuilders are over.

Apple's IPhone, An Investors Dilemma / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Hans_Wagner

Apple has helped investors beat the market this year. The company's iPhone is one of the biggest events of the year for many investors and those interested in the potential of a “game changing” device. Any investor who bought Apple's stock in that recent past has enjoyed a very nice appreciation, partly due to the anticipation that has built up around the iPhone. The question for investors is do I hold on my Apple stock, or do I sell it before the iPhone is released for sale 6pm local time on June 29, 2007. Let's see if we can help put some perspective on this issue.

MPTrader Mid-Day Minute - Powerful Up Move in US Oil Trust / Companies / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Today's bigger than expected drawdown in gasoline inventories despite the build in crude has sparked a powerful upmove in the US Oil Trust (AMEX: USO) in the aftermath of yesterday's weakness and today's lower open. Let's notice that today's action represents a potentially significant key upside reversal session, which would argue that the near-term direction has reversed to the upside (again).

US Interest Rates and Credit Ratings of Utilities / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Major credit raters like Standard & Poor's aren't perfect. But few sources provide more exhaustive research on the financial health of corporations, governments and anyone else who issues debt in the public markets.

For individual utility companies, a solid credit rating means a lower cost of capital and ultimately more-competitive rates and higher profits. For investors, an improving rating is a good sign the underlying business is strengthening—and that the company (and stock) are going to gain value over time.

Derivatives Disaster: Deriving The Truth / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Rob_Kirby

In an article I penned two weeks ago, I discussed the misfortunes of the Bank of Montreal [BMO] and their costly foray into Natural Gas derivatives trading. In that piece I wrote what are now some rather prophetic words in my assessment of BMO and their 450 million “charge” against 2 nd quarter earnings, when I opined;

“This means that the BMO's ‘long natural gas position' was almost certainly a MUCH BIGGER LOSS – at one point in time – than they are admitting to us now.

BMO's year end is Oct. 31. I'm left wondering why they did not report a bigger loss last quarter.”

Dirty Clothes are Big Business, Whirlpool and Mastercard / Companies / China Economy

By: Michael_K_Dawson

Long regarded as the world's growth engine the U.S. economy is currently experiencing a rough patch. This was highlighted by first quarter GDP of 1.3% down from an annualized rate of 2.5% in fourth quarter 2006. Anticipating the slow down, Wall Street analysts lowered first quarter S&P 500 earnings from 8.7% in January to 3.3% by the first of April. However, after all is said and done it appears as though Wall Street's concerns were for naught. Earnings will be closer to 9%, better than the historic average. How could this be?

Strategic Investing in Telecommunications, Utilities From 30,000 Feet Up / Companies / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Earlier this week, I got a call from a reporter at a major newspaper, asking for my “view from 30,000 feet up” on the power industry. Big picture perspectives are most useful when they help us to see the forest as a whole, rather than just tree-by-tree. They're downright dangerous, however, when analysts fall in love with their prognostications.

Capitalizing on Global Growth from Emerging Markets / Companies / Emerging Markets

By: Michael_K_Dawson

The latest revelation on CNBC is that overseas growth can offset a slowing U.S. economy enabling the big U.S. multi-national companies to continue generating outstanding earnings. Talking head after talking head have parroted this theme for the last week and a half. Well, it is nice to be ahead of a trend for a change. Over the past three years, this has been the predominant theme of stocks in my portfolios. However, I haven't limited myself to U.S. companies.
