7 Large-cap Industrial Stocks with High Growth Rates, Low Valuations and Above-average Dividend Yields / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Fast_Graphs

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis article screened the industrial sector searching for companies that offer above-average forecast earnings growth of 15% to 20% or better that could be purchased at an attractive valuation.  Although each of these companies pays a dividend, due to the cyclical nature of this industry we encourage the reader to carefully review the dividend history on each individual company.

The following table summarizes seven large-cap Industrials that appear to be attractively valued, and lists them in order of Estimated EPS Growth order. From left to right, the table shows the company’s stock symbol and name. Next, two valuation metrics are listed side-by-side, the current PE ratio followed by the historical normal PE ratio for perspective.  The final four columns show the current dividend yield, estimated EPS Growth, debt and company sector.

Investing in a Low Interest Rate Market / Stock-Markets / Investing 2012

By: Investment_U

Jason Jenkins writes: For the last year, the effective federal funds interest rate has been 0.25%. The federal funds rate is considered one of the most important interest rates in the U.S. markets.

The federal funds rate is used to control the supply of available funds and hence, inflation and other interest rates. Raising the rate makes it more expensive to borrow. That lowers the supply of available money, which increases the short-term interest rates and helps keep inflation in check. Lowering the rate has the opposite effect, bringing short-term interest rates down.

Five Undervalued Dividend Paying Retail Stocks / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Charles_Carnevale

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe believe the retail sector is currently a mixed bag where some of the best names are currently too pricey to buy. Retailers such as Costco (COST), Ross Stores (ROST) and T.J. Maxx (TJX) have seen their share prices skyrocket over the last year or so. On the other hand, not all leading retailers have followed suit even when their operating results have been comparable. We have identified five well-known and even leading retailers that offer attractive valuation, good dividend yields and the opportunity for double-digit total returns over the next five years.

How Savvy Investors Build True Wealth / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald, writes: Most investors think of time as an enemy, a predator that stalks them all of their lives. They never feel they have enough of it so they are constantly trying to outwit it.

Trying to beat time, they become irrational and make unpredictable, impulsive decisions to "get ahead" or hit the proverbial "home run."

Investor Alert: Xerox is a Cash Machine / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Vitaliy_Katsenelson

On the surface Xerox Corp. smells a lot like its Nifty 50 brethren, once-hotter-than-the-sun-but-now-bankrupt Eastman Kodak Co. and Polaroid Corp. Its stock has gone nowhere since forever. But Xerox was not your typical overvalued blue chip of the 1990s, like Cisco Systems, Johnson & Johnson and Microsoft Corp., whose earnings have tripled or quadrupled since then — the kind of stocks I have advocated in this column. Xerox was very pricey in the late ’90s, but its revenue and earnings per share have since declined. And to make matters worse, printing and copying is just so analog, so last century. It is hard to get excited about a company making equipment whose main trick is putting ink on paper. However, all these negative optics have resulted in one misunderstood company and a very mispriced stock.

How Savers Can Get 10% Yields Without Buying a Single Stock? / Personal_Finance / Investing 2012

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy Alex Daley, Casey Research : The average interest rate for a savings account today is 0.45%. It wasn't that long ago that one could easily earn 5% in a well-chosen savings account, like those offered by ING Direct, or bump that up by a point or two by putting money away in a CD. Thanks to the largesse of our Federal Reserve and the antics of bankers around the country and world, those days are over, probably for a very long time. Interest rates are at an all-time low, and they look poised to stay there for a while. It's just about impossible for a saver to find the kind of yield that will beat inflation, let alone be enough to provide an income one can live on.

Five Cheap Stocks for an Undervalued Market: KCG, AWP, WLP, MT, CNBKA / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Last week marked the third anniversary of the bear market low, and there is compelling evidence that we still have an undervalued market - meaning investors can find cheap stocks.

Even though the S&P 500 Index has nearly doubled off its lows of March 9, 2009, it is still trading at only about 14.1 times earnings, well below its 15-year average of 20.2.

Three Ways to Ride the Rally in Small Cap Stocks / Companies / Investing 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: A recent surge in small cap stocks - companies with a market capitalization of under $1 billion - means individual investors should be placing at least a few of their chips in the small-cap arena.

In fact, the rally has pushed the Russell 2000, an index of 2,000 small cap stocks, to within shouting distance of record highs.
