Food Stocks Aren't Always Bread and Butter Investments

on Apr 26, 2010 7:40 am by Howard L. Simons

Ralph Waldo Emerson famously said, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds," or so I remember from a high school English class where we had to sit in a circle and I drew, by sheer chance I am sure, the best view across the way. I never did figure out what a Transcendentalist was or why someone with the middle name of Waldo (where is he now?) actually would use it, but s... Read More


Goldman, Gold, and the Dollar's Influence

on Apr 26, 2010 8:00 am by Przemyslaw Radomski, CFA

When gold declined last Friday I wasn't caught by surprise. Based on my technical analysis, I gave a heads up two weeks ago when I said that gold was ready for a decline before resuming its upward climb. But sometimes news can rattle the market, which is what happened Friday when gold hit an air pocket and dove $25 in a few minutes to move very close to (or slightly below) the levels mentione...

Upgrades and Downgrades: Staying With Starwood Hotels

on Apr 26, 2010 8:35 am by Justin Sharon

The Dow logged its longest weekly winning streak in over six years and Nasdaq is now up eight straight as earnings and economic data continue to come in ahead of expectations. As Mark Twain, who really did leave us a century ago last Wednesday, might have put it reports of the Nifty Fifty's demise have been greatly exaggerated. Your father's high fliers roared back on Friday as Xerox (... Read More


Nokia Continues to Get Its Clock Cleaned

on Apr 26, 2010 9:10 am by Bob Faulkner

Since reporting last Thursday morning, Nokia's (NOK) stock has managed to lose 15% of its value, and rightly so. The frustration of Nokia investors is palpable with every stride they take to skate to where the puck is as opposed to where it's going.There are two fundamental problems this company faces. The first is the fact that average selling prices are taking a pounding even outside... Read More

IPO Week Offers Little Opportunity

on Apr 26, 2010 9:30 am by Bill Simpson

Last week, with eight deals pricing, was the busiest IPO week since the fall of 2007. But it was a very average group overall, which the pricing and initial aftermarket performance reinforced.IPO Fallacy: "It is all about the initial pop and the only way to make money is getting the deal and flipping on open."Wrong, wrong wrong. Yes, that was the case a decade ago, when the market was fr... Read More

Time to Bet on 'Flation

on Apr 26, 2010 11:00 am by Jeff Saut

Editor's Note: The following article was written by Raymond James Chief Investment Strategist Jeff Saut. Herb Stein was chairman of President Nixon's Council of Economic Advisors between 1972 and 1974. It was a depressing time with inflation rising and an attendant ascent in interest rates.

Why Research in Motion's Stock Is Floundering

on Apr 26, 2010 11:50 am by Michael Comeau

Research in Motion (RIMM) announced two new smartphones today, the Bold 9650 and Pearl 3G, both of which are basically minor updates of previous models. The lack of imagination put into these phones gives me a lot of confidence that I made the right move by dumping my position in Research in Motion.CEO Jim Balsillie recently said, "If you saw the roadmap, you'd be blown away," but we now...

Get ready for Dendreon (DNDN) to take a major leap (or potential slump) this week as the FDA decision concerning its prostate cancer vaccine Provenge rapidly approaches.

When Sony Kills Off Floppy Disks, What's Next to Go?

on Apr 26, 2010 2:30 pm by Mike Schuster

Better start getting used to moving 1.44MB of information some other way.

Is Email Killing Your Bathroom Experience?

on Apr 26, 2010 3:20 pm by Justin Rohrlich

The average American uses 57 sheets of toilet paper a day, about six times the global average. The average American also insists on ever-softer, ever more-absorbent premium toilet paper like Cottonelle from Kimberly-Clark (KMB), while, in many cases, maintaining a preference for TP made with recycled materials, too.And thus, the toilet paper industry finds itself at a crossroads -- a difficult sit...

On Inflation and Money Illusion

on Apr 26, 2011 7:45 am by Howard L. Simons

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Give a man a dollar and he will buy stocks with it. This is not quite true, but in the investment sense, it is much truer than we like to think. All you have to do is ask the question which is easier, constructing new plant and equipment or buying its paper representation.Given this background, should it surprise anyone that risky financial assets of a...

Welcome to the European Tea Party

on Apr 26, 2011 10:15 am by Matthew Mallon

Perhaps it was the long Easter weekend and the exceptionally sunny weather across most of the continent, which saw its cities empty out and beaches fill up, or perhaps it was unpleasant news about the United States' sovereign debt rating, but the eurozone saw an oddly placid week, despite the turmoil of recent events. At least on the surface.Spain, which had wobbled under market pressure in... Read More


Five Things You Need to Know: Are Recessions Good for Freedom?

on Apr 26, 2011 10:45 am by Kevin Depew

1. Are Recessions Good for Freedom? It's the right observation -- recessions often coincide with political change and calls for increased freedom -- but unfortunately the wrong conclusion. "The more well-to-do a nation, the greater the chances that it will sustain democracy," wrote American political sociologist Seymour Martin Lipset in 1959, crystallizing the idea, now a...

Tablet Size and Climate Change

on Apr 26, 2011 1:00 pm by Anton Wahlman - The Street

No, I'm not talking that kind of climate change. What I am going to talk about is the impact of consumer preferences with respect to tablet size, based on where you live. The debate is whether consumers prefer tablet screens closer to 7 inches or 10 inches diagonally. Obviously Apple (AAPL) continues to dominate with a 4:3 aspect ratio tablet close to the high end of that range, whereas Samsung a... Read More

on Apr 26, 2011 12:45 pm by Erik Swarts

"Cut your losses quickly."As a trader, you hear it as often as, "Have a nice day."

I wholeheartedly agree, it is prudent advice to follow in a typical continuation or trading range environment. However, when it comes to extreme market behavior,... Read More

Where Is the Larger Bubble, in Stocks or Bonds?

on Apr 26, 2013 9:50 am by J. W. Jones

Today we have a plethora of companies reporting earnings and are moving through the first quarter earnings season at a rapid pace.
