  • Buying Bernanke's Breakouts

    By Declan Fallon - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: APL, BEAM, ELRC

    It didn't take long for market losses generated by the Ben Bernanke breakdown to be surpassed in the days following the long July weekend. However, the number of NYSE stocks making new 52-week highs is running well below the prior rally, going from 800 new 52-week highs a day in May to sub-600 in July -- not exactly a swinging endorsement on the part of buyers. No new highs means more »

  • Bargain Stocks Amid Declining Gas Prices

    By Jacob Wolinsky - May 20, 2013 | Tickers: APL, BWP, OILT

    Slowing inflation is surely bringing some respite to U.S. consumers as they are left with more money to spend. The main reason behind inflation falling to a two-and-a-half year low is the 8.1% drop in gas prices during April. Due to booming domestic hydrocarbon production, our dependence on foreign oil has decreased massively and oil prices are in no hurry to run up. This does not benefit oil more »

  • State of Play for January

    By Declan Fallon - February 4, 2013 | Tickers: APL, FCX, PPC

    With markets toying at all-time highs I have decided to take some money off the table, with the intention of buying into the next dip.  The S&P hasn't qualified itself as in 'profit taking' territory as defined by my Investment Strategy, but a little bit of wiggle room is allowed!  I also think the next dip will not reach the depths I like for a low-risk buy, so more »

  • Billionaire Leon Cooperman’s Best Stock Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - January 14, 2013 | Tickers: ATLS, APL, ARP, KFN, MMR

    Compared to their larger peers, small-cap stocks don’t get as much attention in the financial world. Understandably, then, we can expect hedge funds and other top-tier investment vehicles to take advantage of this information inefficiency; we’ve determined that the most popular small-cap stocks among hedge funds can earn about 120 basis points of alpha per month.

  • Do MLPs Offer a Safe way to Invest In Energy?

    By Joshua Bondy - August 21, 2012 | Tickers: ACMP, APL, EPB, ETP, MWE

    Master limited partnerships offer strong yields and a relatively stable way to invest in the oil and gas sector. They provide pipelines and processing services which are less vulnerable to price fluctuations in the underlying commodities. By not holding land and reserves on their balance sheets they are not forced to take large write downs when the price of natural gas enters a bear market.  In the midst of negative more »

  • Diverse Speculative Buying Drives the Rally

    By Declan Fallon - June 21, 2012 | Tickers: APL, LTC, OMPI, PVA, SNH

    Last Friday was a busy day for stocks making volume moves higher.  But while the number of stocks making the grade rose, the quality of those stocks was more mixed, suggesting speculation - rather than shrewd value buying - was driving demand.  But it was an eclectic group of stocks covering a Medical Device Maker, Flooring Producer, Senior Housing Provider, and Natural Gas Developer amongst others.

  • Three Bargains: APL, POT, FCX

    By Declan Fallon - March 22, 2012 | Tickers: APL, CF, FCX, POT, SQM

    Bargain Hunting is a tricky business; in many cases one overpays for a lemon, but once in a while you can find a real gem.  It's finding these gems which makes swallowing the lemons all the easier.  Stock Picking is no different.  "Finds" can turn into disappointments; on the spin of a bad earnings release, a 'shock' news item, or simple bad timing.  But when a portfolio booster is more »

  • The Potential of Binary Plays

    By Mike Price - March 1, 2012 | Tickers: APL, BBRY, KSWS

    Everybody knows about Warren Buffett’s decree that if he still managed less than $1,000,000 he could return over 50% per year. One way I believe individual investors can strive to achieve this lofty goal is through devoting a typically small part of one’s portfolio to a form of speculation I call Binary Plays.

    I call them this because the company’s stock usually hinges on a more »

  • Forward P/E Ratios Alone Do Not Tell Much

    By Edgar Ambart - January 28, 2012 | Tickers: APL, ERF, STM

    A forward price-to-earnings metric does not mean much when analyzing a company, specifically if the numerator and denominator of the equation end up yielding the same result over time.  This is normally the case when the price and earnings have moved up at a proportional pace.  For instance, a company generates $4.00 in earnings and trades at $28 a share.  One year later it earns $5.00 and trades more »
