  • Why Holding On to This Stock Is a Good Idea

    By Harsh Chauhan - August 18, 2013 | Tickers: CHL, FNSR, JDSU

    JDS Uniphase (NASDAQ: JDSU) has had an indifferent year so far. The manufacturer of fiber optics components has underperformed badly this year, appreciating just 4%. And after taking a look at the company’s recently released fourth-quarter results, it isn’t clear if there’s a turnaround in sight.

    Missing revenue estimates and offering a light guidance aren’t good signs, especially when peer Finisar (NASDAQ: FNSR) issued terrific preliminary more »

  • Is a "Cheap" iPhone Destined for China?

    By Jason Hall - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: AMZN, AAPL, CHL

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) manufacturing partner Pegatron recently gave projections of 40%-50% growth in its "non-computing" segment for the 3rd quarter. This points squarely in the direction of a much-rumored "cheap iPhone" being a reality. And with domestic demand of the iPhone remaining robust, many think that this new product will be aimed, at least in part, at the Chinese market. This brings one question to mind: Will this restart more »

  • Which Telecom Is Right for You?

    By Wes Patoka - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: T, CHL, TEF

    Growth, income and stability are the three things that make up the holy trinity of investing. Companies that possess all of these qualities are rare, and typically produce something that is a backbone of society. The telecommunications sector seems to hit on all three. Telecom giants in the US and abroad typically have the power to raise rates (growth), have large dividends (income), and are necessary in their customers lives more »

    By Christopher DeSousa - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CHL

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has tried to pursue a distribution deal with Chinese telecom operator China Mobile since 2009, but both companies have yet come to an agreement because of conflicting business models.

  • Does Apple Need to Reinvent the iPhone?

    By Bob Ciura - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CHL, GOOG

  • A Few More Reasons Why This Stock Was Unfairly Punished

    By Harsh Chauhan - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: BRCM, CHL, S

    In the previous part of this post, I’d explained why the Street was overly negative about Broadcom’s (NASDAQ: BRCM) second-quarter performance and the accompanying outlook. The weakness around its mobile and wireless business, which makes up 46% of the top line, seemed overblown. But what seemed completely ignored in analysts’ opinions about Broadcom was the strength in its remaining 54% of the business.

    By Chris Johnson - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CHL, GOOG

    At the end of last week, with a closing price of $462.54 per share, it's a great time to re-evaluate Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) long-term prospects.

  • Emerging Markets...Investing For The Next Big Trend

    By Lawrence Weinman - August 3, 2013 | Tickers: BIDU, CHL, EWZ, OVTI, EWX, VWO

  • This Stock Is on Sale, Don’t Miss It

    By Harsh Chauhan - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: CAVM, CHL, CSCO

    Chipmaker Cavium (NASDAQ: CAVM) was supposed to be one of my better picks for 2013, but I have to admit that I have been wrong so far. Shares have underperformed the NASDAQ Composite index by a wide margin so far, appreciating less than 15%, and as I write this, the stock is down around 5%.

  • China Mobile Gets the Best of Both Worlds

    By Ryan Gilbert - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: T, CHL, VZ

    AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) are the biggest telecommunications players this side of the Pacific. Previous years of investment and development in new technologies have paid off in a big way. The phone and telephone providers are paying out huge 4-5% dividends and have promising leads to keep growing revenue in the future.

    After the tremendous gains during the first five months of 2013, I had to re-think some of my favorite dividend stocks. Some became so highly priced that the dividend yield shrunk too much to make an investment worthwhile. A great example of this is AT&T (NYSE: T), which rose to as high as $39 at its peak, at which point its dividend yield had dropped to 4.6%. Now more »
