on Apr 24, 2012 11:20 am by Lloyd Khaner

on Apr 24, 2012 9:10 am by Conor Sen

on Apr 24, 2012 10:15 am by

Billionaire curmudgeon Jim Rogers has never kept his opinions on the future of the world economy a secret. Rogers sees Asia, and especially China, as the next great power, and he's confident enough that America is in its decline that he's moved his family to Singapore so that he can raise his daughters in the midst of what he sees as the next great economic power. "If you were... Read More

Apple: Earnings Are Coming, and Things Are Looking a Lot Dicier This Time Around

on Apr 24, 2012 11:00 am by Michael Comeau

MINYANVILLE EXCLUSIVE: Yes, it's almost time. After the close today, Apple (AAPL) will deliver, as it does every three months, the most eagerly-anticipated earnings report on the planet. But in contrast with last quarter, the road to glory doesn't appear to be quite so smooth. Let's hit the rewind button back to January 24, the day before Apple reported its fiscal first-quarte...

Upgrades & Downgrades: Diebold Could Be Cash Machine for Investors

on Apr 24, 2012 9:30 am by Justin Sharon

Sunday, which was long where news went to die, is now anything but. Lehman Brothers famously perished on that day in 2008, igniting the financial calamity that ensued, and yesterday markets fell for a third session in four, 24 hours after the sort of day only Morrissey, the world's most morose Mancunian, could love. Over the weekend austerity talks in the Netherlands collapsed and Franc... Read More

Dreams of a Market Downdraft Drifting in the Distance

on Apr 24, 2012 12:25 pm by Peter Prudden

MINYANVILLE EXCLUSIVE: The coming weeks will be the most important for the stock market since the March 2009 bottom. For the past three years, we have lived in a world shaped and secured by accommodating Federal Reserve policies. Record low interest rates accompanied by the printing of trillions of dollars have kept the country from experiencing a credit flow cardiac arrest. As Federal Reserve... Read More

When Humdrum Meets Huzzah!

on Apr 24, 2012 11:40 am by

My firm has seen dull companies before, which is OK. We've done well in this area, and monotony is cited favorably by no less than Peter Lynch as a desirable investment attribute. But RELM Wireless (RWC) raised the boredom bar when, in its latest 10-K, it articulated four reasons why its market -- land mobile radios (or LMR) -- is cold: it's a mature industry, many customers are...

Today in Tech: Falling iPhone Sales at AT&T, Verizon Put Apple Earnings Into Question

on Apr 24, 2012 12:40 pm by Vincent Trivett

MINYANVILLE EXCLUSIVE: Today, Apple (AAPL) will report on earnings after the closing bell.

New Stock Coverage: Bulls Run on Matador Resources

on Apr 24, 2013 9:27 am by Justin Sharon

It appears the death of equities, like that of George Soros, was greatly exaggerated. The Dow (^DJI), fresh from suffering its worst swoon since June, is now positive for the month of April after successive gains. Blue chips were boosted by a 1.68% post-earnings increase in Caterpillar (CAT), with the company that just sponsored a Professional Bull Riders show proving... Read More

Stock Upgrades: Red Robin a Far Better Bet Than Twitter

on Apr 24, 2013 9:26 am by Justin Sharon

Birthday boy William Shakespeare once warned us that "There is divine providence in the fall of a sparrow."

Indeed it was a decidedly difficult day for our feathered friends, what with avian flu concerns causing Kentucky Fried Chicken... Read More

Stock Downgrades: Apple Gets Totally Turned Over

on Apr 24, 2013 9:25 am by Justin Sharon

Not even an erroneous Associated Press tweet of bombs at the White House could derail the Dow (^DJI), which rose for its 15th straight Tuesday, an event that last occurred in 1927 when Murderers' Row swept all before them for the Bronx Bombers. Bronx born Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs (GS), fresh from cashing his $21 million blank check, preached the&nbs... Read More

Jamming on PBJ: The Exchange Traded Fund That's Been on a Tear

on Apr 24, 2013 1:16 pm by Oliver Pursche

Last week I wrote about food stocks and offered a list of the companies I like (see 'Pass the Ketchup!': Why Food Stocks Should Not Be Overlooked). The thesis on food stocks is simple: Aggregate demand never diminishes. This doesn't mean there's no risk in food and beverage companies. There's plenty. Remember, highflier Green Mountain Coffee Roasters... Read More

X Factor: 5 Stocks Reaching Their Ex-Dividend Date on May 1

on Apr 24, 2013 10:55 am by Christopher Witrak

Many stocks will reach their ex-dividend date next Wednesday which is significant for investors as the seller of the stock on that date, not the buyer, receives the most recent dividend.

The company determines on the record date, which usually occurs two days after the ex... Read More

Chart of the Day: Are Defensive Stocks Enough to Carry the S&P?

on Apr 24, 2013 12:16 pm by

A fellow trader suggested to me yesterday that the outperformance of the defensive sectors was no sign for concern for the broader market. He said that he only becomes concerned about defensive outperformance when they are flat to slightly up, while the rest of the sectors are mostly lower. In the current case, he said, the defensives are outperforming, but only because they're u... Read More

Looking for Black or White in a Shades-of-Gray Market

on Apr 24, 2013 4:10 pm by Peter Atwater

I was asked last week why I hadn't written something significant for Minyanville recently. My response was, "I am watching the world around us instead." The person I was speaking to walked away perplexed and shaking his head. I was a wimp for not having an opinion. Turn on the TV, open the paper, or click into the blogosphere, everyone has an opinion - and a... Read More

Stock Upgrades: Hitch a Ride on Hawaiian Holdings

on Apr 24, 2014 9:25 am by Justin Sharon

Was that teenage stowaway who somehow survived at 80 degrees below zero at 38,000 feet while stuck in the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines Boeing (NYSE:BA) 767 trying to tell us something? Yesterday Boeing gained 2.41% in topping the Dow (INDEXDJX:.DJI), and Hawaiian Airlines owner Hawaiian Holdings (NASDAQ:HA) surged 6.87% to the highest level in its history.

New Stock Coverage: EMC, One of the Internet's Fabled 'Four Horsemen,' Is Off to the Races

on Apr 24, 2014 9:24 am by Justin Sharon

Back in the dot-com bubble, storage stock EMC Corp. (NYSE:EMC) was one of the feted Four Horsemen of the Internet.

The analyst says catalysts include robust cash flow and the opportunity for share buybacks.   EMC last ruled the roost during the Web boom, but not even the singer behind "Boom Boom... Read More

Apple Inc. Innovation Now Means Mimicking IBM

on Apr 24, 2014 8:51 am by L.A. Little

If Tim Cook's ingenuity in boosting Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) share price could just translate to product innovation, then Apple could really soar again. Unfortunately though, Apple's heyday apparently has come and gone. Its only ingenious strategies are to mimick another former innovator, International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM), with the goal of arm-twisting the stock price higher rather than watc... Read More
