    By Jean-Marc Saint - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: LNG, UNG

    When in doubt on your next move, it's best to find an expert in the field and ask him what's what. So, for energy investment, I sought the president of GRZ Energy, Anthony Grisanti.

    Invest it in natural gas,” said Grisanti, also a regular of CNBC's Futures Now, “either you invest it in a producer of natural gas, an explorer of natural gas—but that's the more »

    By Jean-Marc Saint - April 17, 2013 | Tickers: CVX, XOM

    To keep up with ExxonMobil's (NYSE: XOM) Twitter Feed Saturday was something like listening to your Aunt Hilda after downing 6 mugs of tall blonde roasts:

    “ExxonMobil is paying for the cleanup in Arkansas. We're not using the Oil Liability Trust Fund”

    “Reports ExxonMobil restricting media access in Mayflower aren't true. Local law asking media to follow standard safety precautions.”

    The above was damage control concerning Exxon more »

  • News Flash: People Want Better Food, Market Nods

    By Jean-Marc Saint - February 19, 2013 | Tickers: CMG, MCD, PNRA

    The Hudson Institute recently found that between 2006 and 2011, 10 million fewer servings of french fries were served at top restaurant chains. Maybe those sobering food documentaries finally made a dent. That being said, McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) is (understandably) in an uncomfortable position, playing by a changing set of rules.          

    The fried potato vendor has just reported its first decline in same store sales in nine years--add that more »

  • Microsoft Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

    By Jean-Marc Saint - February 12, 2013 | Tickers: DELL, MSFT, NOK

    There are some things that are just not cool no matter who does them, including

    1) liking your own social media status

    2) using your grandmother as a character reference

    3) reviewing your own product and posting it to your site

    Guess which one Nokia (NYSE: NOK) did this week?

    Matters of class and fairness aside, the producer of the Lumia 920 and 620 now wants to add a tablet more »

    Everyone loves a good underdog success story, a tale about a lovable loser that rises from the muck of disgrace to find their place in the sun. Rudy and Rocky Balboa did it, but is there hope for Research In Motion​ (NASDAQ: BBRY)...I mean Blackberry (BBRY)​? Sentiment is mixed, leaning towards “meh.”

    Apparently not enough people found CEO Thorsten Heins's introduction of the Blackberry Z10 and Q10 very more »

  • Do Yahoo Investors Have Reason To Hope?

    By Jean-Marc Saint - January 31, 2013 | Tickers: FB, GOOG, YHOO

    As understandable investor anger and frustration over recent Apple CEO Tim Cook's “we're OK” statements show, whoever leads your company is pretty darn important.

    As was the case with the late Steve Jobs, this person at the helm not only reacts to market data and manages performance, but casts vision for an organization and inspires others to innovation. Those investing in said enterprise need to know, more than more »

  • Death of Twinkie and the Zombie Apocalypse

    By Jean-Marc Saint - November 19, 2012 | Tickers: EBAY, FLO, GIS, KRFT, WN

    Do you remember the movie about that guy in a coma? Anyway, he'd been in coma for about a month and when the movie opens he's waking up out of it. He can't find anyone in the hospital or on the street to ask for help. In fact, once he travels enough, he discovers the majority of the city is populated with the undead, rabid zombies looking more »
