    Celldex Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CLDX)

    On Friday, a slew of upgrades came rolling in on shares of Celldex Therapeutics after the biotechnology stock lost significant value following earnings, which were on Thursday. That same day (Thursday) I wrote an article telling investors to “buy,” and I guess I wasn’t alone, as Roth Capital, Cantor Fitzgerald, and Jefferies all issued positive notes and bullish price targets on the same day.

    By Masam Abbas - February 13, 2013 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR

    The shale gas revolution has brought a new life in many sectors that were otherwise neglected by investors. Energy infrastructure companies were one such group. Given the abundant supply of natural gas, economists have suggested the government export some of it, which will not only bring foreign remittances but also help to maintain a balance between supply and demand of natural gas. When it comes to energy infrastructure companies and more »

  • Investing Abroad: Dutch Stocks

    By Matthew Luke - August 13, 2012 | Tickers: COF, LNG, CBI, GOOG, ING, RDS-B, RDS-A, SHAW.DL, UL, UN, YNDX

    Diversification is the best defense against global uncertainty. Living abroad, that is one truth that I have come to appreciate more and more. With so much uncertainty in Europe and the rest of the world, we sometimes forget that truth. In these times of uncertainty, many investors seek the safety of good US companies, avoiding the rest of the world completely. Diversification means more than just different sectors of the US economy. Diversification also means foreign companies that will protect your portfolio from domestic risk.

    By Bobbie Johnson - March 13, 2012 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, JEC, KBR, TOT

    In January 2012 Japan’s Inpex and French energy giant Total (NYSE: TOT) launched a multibillion dollar project called Icthys in order to take advantage of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) boom in northwest Australia. The project requires a 500 mile sub-sea pipeline routing between offshore natural gas fields and Darwin, Australia. Once in Darwin the gas is then liquefied in refrigeration trains for export.

  • Heavy EPCs Take Advantage of Global LNG Boom (Part 2)

    By Bobbie Johnson - March 13, 2012 | Tickers: CBI, FLR, KBR, BWC

    In 2000 the price of natural gas spiked leading to an influx of U.S. LNG import facilities. Added to the shale gas boom, the U.S. gained a definitive price advantage in global markets. Even though the global market demand is strong the U.S. has only one working LNG export facility in Kenai, Alaska. This limits the country’s ability to benefit fully from the demand. The good more »

  • Is Chicago Bridge & Iron A Peter Lynch Stock?

    By Chad Henage - February 28, 2012 | Tickers: CBI, EME

    Looking at our categories, CB&I passes 6 of our 7 tests. The only test it fails is one that many people might argue I'm being too harsh on, that of insider ownership. Since the CEO is betting about 10 times his annual salary on the stock I can see a possible point of contention there. With the company looking like a Lynch stock it is one to at least add to your watch list to keep up with developments.
