  • A Sea of Green?

    By Kelley Ryan - December 13, 2011 | Tickers: AMRC, BAMXF, WM

    Nothing feels better than when a company you have invested in not only makes you some cash, but also does something for the greater good. It could be a large donation to a relief fund or making the switch to environmentally friendly packaging. Even better than these glimpses of goodness, however, is finding money-making investments whose main purpose is positive change. It doesn't happen very often, but every once more »

  • In 'LUV' with Southwest

    By Andrew Dillard - December 13, 2011 | Tickers: LUV, BA

    There are few companies of comparable size to Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) that have had such a big 2011.  Southwest has made major competitive and strategic moves that it appears their quest for aerial dominance cannot be stopped.

    Early this year, Southwest acquired the Orlando, FL based Airtran Airways.  This acquisition is the perfect marriage of two low-cost, customer-focused airlines that operate in different regions of the United States, with more »

  • American Airlines: A Cheap But Risky Play

    By Tim Brugger - December 12, 2011 | Tickers: ALK, AAMRQ.PK, DAL, UAL

    By now American Airlines(NASDAQOTH: AAMRQ.PK) bankruptcy saga is old news. Investors that follow the company know last month’s announcement was not a matter of if, but when. Company representatives cited high fuel costs as one of the explanations for the filing, and that was certainly part of it. But even more telling were the problems AMR incurred by not filing for bankruptcy (BK) years ago, as other major more »

  • Fed Ex or UPS: Better Decide Fast

    By Tim Brugger - December 11, 2011 | Tickers: AMZN, EBAY, FDX, UPS

    The shipping industry, by most accounts anyway, is back. October wasn’t pretty, but it appears the numbers for November are going to be very strong. Not surprising really since it’s not difficult to imagine more consumers shopping from the comfort of their home. eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and other online retailers have confirmed that to be the case so far this Holiday season. And when they more »

Every day, the finance experts continue to make bull or bear arguments about the valuation of the stock market. In many cases, this value is argued based upon historical understanding.

  • This Stock is at the Top of My Christmas Wish List

    By Justin Carley - December 8, 2011 | Tickers: GD, TXT

    I just read a quote today, “Buy at the sound of cannons, sell at the sound of violins”, and I immediately thought of the number one stock on my wish list - Textron (NYSE: TXT).  As of this writing, the stock was exchanging hands at $18.22, a long ways from its all-time high of $73.38 just prior to the global financial crisis.  Now the cannon balls have been sounding for quite a while on Textron, but the violins are nowhere in sight.
