Shell Profits Warning – The Shock That Wasn't / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Andrew_McKillop

New CEO Admits : Shell's new CEO Ben van Beurden has admitted corporate performance in 2013 was not what he expected from the group. Just two weeks after taking over the helm at end-December, he gave what journalists and commentators called “a shock profit warning”, saying that full-year profits excluding “special items” could be about 25% below 2012's performance. For the 4th Quarter of 2013 Shell's earnings before special items fell by about 50%.

New Way to Make Big Money in Biotech Stocks Sector / Companies / BioTech

By: Money_Morning

Ernie Tremblay writes: Traditional pharmaceutical blockbusters like Pfizer's Lipitor treat millions of patients at relatively low cost. It's a high-volume business model that has kept the pharmaceutical industry afloat for a long, long time. But over the past decade, out of necessity, a new model has taken the industry by storm.

As big moneymakers, like Lipitor, reach the "patent cliff," their intellectual rights protection are evaporating, and generic drug makers are taking over their markets.

We’re Riding These Bottlenecks to the Bank / Companies / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Amy Harder asked a pretty straight forward question in National Journal yesterday.

We’ve found vast new stores of domestic energy, she points out, but how do we move it around the country?

In light of the recent crude oil train accident in North Dakota, she brings up a pretty big point. The entire infrastructure network of pipelines, rail transit, barge traffic, and high-power lines hardly seems up to the task.

2014 Graphite Outlook: Price Rebound, Supply Shift and New End Uses / Companies / Graphene

By: Metals_Report

China's recent halting of flake graphite production in Pingdu, Shandong, made headlines, and has many investors wondering how supply may shift. Simon Moores, manager of Industrial Minerals Data, tells The Mining Report that he sees an interesting dynamic unfolding in the graphite space over the next five years. As buyers for steel and battery markets compete for limited graphite supplies, the winners will be companies that can deliver the best, tailor-made products. In the meantime, offtake agreements are signaling a new confidence in the sector.

The Mining Report: Simon, China is putting mining on the back burner while it cleans up damage done to the environment by mining and other industrial work. Graphite processing facilities, including those in Shandong Province, have halted flake graphite production. Will that affect prices?

How to Profit During High Inflation / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Don_Miller

Anyone with a technical degree will admit that college programmed them to consider "sell" a dirty word—to think salespeople use trickery to lure consumers into buying things they don't need. It makes no difference whether it's an investment product or a Pet Rock; anyone involved with selling or its evil twin marketing is guilty until proven innocent.

I spent the majority of my first career in sales and marketing, where I focused on negotiations and pricing. My clients included 40 of the top 500 US corporations. Now I work alongside some of the best economists and analysts in the world, and well, let's just say I bring a different perspective and experience base to our meetings.

Intel Stock Looks to Revive With Wearable Technology / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: When Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) misjudged the mobile wave of tablets and smartphones, it sentenced Intel stock to several years of stagnation.

But after Intel Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich's keynote at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas Monday evening, it's clear the world's largest semiconductor maker is determined not to repeat that mistake with wearable technology.

Stock Market Investing 2014 - Top Picks / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Charles_Carnevale

My biggest pet peeve regarding common stock investing is how so many people have a tendency to over-generalize this asset class. Commonly held beliefs such as investing in stocks is risky, or that the stock market is overvalued, or that the fed is driving stock prices, etc., are just a few examples illustrating my point. In truth, common stocks are as individually different as people are individually different. When dealing with human beings, most reasonable thinking people would reject prejudicial statements. Personally, I believe we should have the same attitude about common stocks.

Instead of attempting to put them all in the same basket, I believe it is more rational and prudent to judge each common stock based on its own merits and attributes. This is why I continuously point out that it is a market of stocks and not a stock market. All stocks are not the same, therefore, they should not all be painted with the same broad brush. Consistent with this notion is that it also logically follows that not all investors are the same. Consequently, with these thoughts in mind, different strokes (stocks) for different folks (different goals, objectives and risk tolerances) is the more appropriate stance.

How Sony Could Surprise Investors in 2014 / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: DailyGainsLetter

Sasha Cekerevac writes: As the stock market continues moving higher, it becomes that much more difficult to find value stocks. They’re still there, but one needs to dig a bit deeper to find attractive valuations as part of one’s investment strategy.

One company that I've been researching lately is Sony Corporation (NYSE/SNE). Everyone is aware, I’m sure, of Sony, as it’s been around for decades. While the stock had a relatively strong performance in 2013, I believe there is potential for a very good year in 2014, in terms corporate earnings growth.

Why AAON Should Be a Case Study in Business Schools / Companies / Corporate News

Mitchell Clark writes: In the pursuit of reliability and consistency in business performance, AAON, Inc. (AAON) came through once again by reporting another record quarter.

I’m absolutely convinced that any equity market portfolio is well served by having at least some exposure to what I refer to as “old economy” types of businesses. AAON is a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based company that manufactures and sells heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment to industrial customers.

Time to Buy Out of Favour Stock ETF's Turkey, Gold, Brazil for 2014 ? / Companies / Investing 2014

By: David_Banister

The best time to buy cheap is when you are afraid to bring up your ideas around the water cooler at work for fear of the peer laughter. Our work centers on looking for oversold conditions and crowd behavioral anomalies that can give us better low risk entries with good upside potential. A combination of fundamentals and technical, combined with Elliott Wave Theory patterns can lead to nice profits with low risk.

  For just a few quick ideas that would make sense in this area, we point out 3 ETF’s that you could look at entering now as they are way out of favor and very oversold.

Facebook - Shot Across The Bow - RIP? / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Michael_Noonan

One can never read tomorrow's news today, but developing market activity can give one a higher degree of probability as to what, if not tomorrow's then what the news will soon be sometime after. Facebook is a case in point. The Guardian ran an article on Friday, the 27th, giving an author's opinion that Facebook "is dead and buried to teens." If one were long that stock, the level of concern should run to high alert, for Facebook has no product, other than a social venue, and social "values" can change quickly, especially among teens.

Does a market send a message to exit from a position? We say a resounding Yes! There may be some room as to when, but if there is some kind of red flag alert, then one should have a set of rules in place to protect against potential adversity. Is Facebook sending such an alert? You be the judge.

Coming of Age: Experts Reflect on the Extraordinary Promise of the Cell Therapy Sector / Companies / BioTech

By: TLSReport

Without innovation and risk-taking, modern medicine would be missing staples of the physician's armamentarium: antibiotics, radiation therapies, vaccines. The idea of taking a tonic to cure what ails you is thousands of years old, but the science behind that tonic may be revolutionary. Enter stem cell technologies. Given the promise backing the science—and the sector's position on the cusp of breaking out—companies with cell therapies got plenty of attention from investment analysts and experts in 2013. Read what those experts, including George Zavoico of MLV & Co., Steve Brozak of WBB Securities, Jason Kolbert of the Maxim Group, and Kevin DeGeeter of Ladenberg Thalmann & Co., had to say about prospects for stem cell companies in this special retrospective article from The Life Sciences Report.

Even though Cyber Monday sales were spectacular this year, as online sales surged 20 percent and beat Black Friday receipts, the day didn't top November 11, Singles' Day in China. Singles' Day is a day of celebration for people who are single and has become popular among the young in China.

The Catastrophe Called Collapsing Corporate Earnings Growth / Companies / Corporate Earnings

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: I keep telling you about my suspicion that the backbone of any stock market—corporate earnings growth—is disappearing. Now, we see it in the numbers…

Of the 106 companies in the S&P 500 that have issued corporate earnings guidance for the fourth quarter, an astounding 94 of them have issued negative guidance—that’s 89% of the companies issuing guidance, warning it will be negative, which is well above the five-year average rate of 63%.
