  • Are These Camera Stocks Headed for a Kodak Moment?

    By Ryan Palmer - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: CAJ, NINOY.PK, SNE

    Many investors know the story of Eastman Kodak. The company was once a darling of the stock market. In the '70s it gained a near 90% market share in the American market for photographic film. Kodak could do no wrong. Then the transition to digital cameras happened, and the company couldn't keep up. Its stock is down 99.86% from July 1999 prices.

    In the early 2000's, consumers were excited about a camera that could take more photos than the standard 30 on a roll of film. Soon, traditional film cameras could only be found in basements and garage sales while digital cameras took off. 

    Today, 1.6 trillion photos are taken annually, compared to around 100 billion in 2000, a 16-fold increase. Now just a decade after the last transformation, we more »

    Japan’s Nikkei 225 has been one of 2013’s best performing stock indices. Year-to-date it’s up nearly 40%, almost double the performance of the S&P 500.

  • There Are Better Alternatives to This Business Machines Company

    By Matthew Frankel - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: CAJ, HPQ, XRX

    The name Xerox (NYSE: XRX) has become synonymous with the copier business, with many office workers using phrases such as “I need to go Xerox these reports,” regardless of what company actually manufactured that particular copier. Xerox currently trades at a seemingly low valuation, pays a nice dividend, and is one of the market leaders. Is Xerox one of the few remaining bargains in the markets, or is it a more »

    By Declan Fallon - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CAJ, CREE, VECO

    The headlines are putting stocks into a mini-spin, although stocks will have to fall a long way for bears to claim any real victory. In this environment, it's all too easy to focus on the rally's big winners and watch profit takers nickle-and-dime such stocks lower. Better is to go looking for value in stocks which have avoided attention, but may be falling in sympathy with what's more »

  • Strong Growth Prospects Could Power up This Stock

    By Piyush Arora - March 28, 2013 | Tickers: CAJ, NINOY.PK, SNE

    According to recent economic data, the unemployment rate in the U.S. has slipped to its 5-year low, while disposable income is on the rise. The basic rule of economy says that when personal disposable income rises, sales of lifestyle-related commodities get a boost. This, coupled with increasing display resolutions, has bolstered camera sales of Nikon (NASDAQOTH: NINOY.PK), Canon (NYSE: CAJ) and Sony (NYSE: SNE), and I believe that the more »

  • There Are Better Options Than This Document Equipment Manufacturer

    By Matthew Frankel - March 8, 2013 | Tickers: CAJ, HPQ, XRX

    Xerox ) has become synonymous with the copying industry, so much so that office workers will actually refer to a copier manufactured by another company as “the Xerox.”  However, with lower corporate spending and lower margins leading to flat revenue, I believe that this particular company is a bit too pricey, even at the single-digit P/E multiples that it trades for.

    To say that Japan’s leading consumer electronics manufacturer Panasonic (NASDAQOTH: PCRFY) has been struggling in the past couple of years would be an understatement.  Having completely misread the market on consumer electronics trends it now finds itself in very dangerous territory.

  • Concerns About this Business Send Shares Sliding

    By Naomi Warmate-Igwe - December 19, 2012 | Tickers: CAJ, LXK, XRX

    A few days ago, shares of Lexmark International (NYSE: LXK), a known printer manufacturer with its shares currently trading at $23.18, slid by over 6%. This decline was as a result of the downgrade by Deutsche Bank analysts, with an $18 price target set on the stock.
