  • The Five Most Expensive CEO Perks in America

    By Paul Hodgson - August 21, 2013 | Tickers: FOLD, ETN, GBL, LVS, MCD, MSI, NOC, TWI, WYNN

    It’s not simple tracking down the five most expensive perquisites. They’re in the Summary Compensation Table (SCT) in a company’s proxy statement but are buried in a category called “All Other Compensation” (AOC). AOC is, as its name suggests, a catch-all for anything that won’t fit into any of the other pay categories defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). For that reason there are more »

  • 2 Electronics Companies to Buy and 1 to Sell

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: A, GLW, ETN

    Investing in electronics companies is relatively risky due to fluctuations in demand. But because I see the economy staying strong over the next several years, I think demand for these firms' technology will be long-lived.

    Underneath those devices you are carrying comes a lot of testing and small parts. These stocks are behind the scenes, but are able to benefit from major breakthroughs in gadgetry. However, before buying just any more »

  • An ETF for Positive Environmental, Social, and Governance Investing

    By Matthew Luke - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: ETN, KLD, NEE

    Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment strategies have experienced tremendous growth in recent years. In 1995, professionally managed investments in the United States that explicitly incorporated ESG criteria made up just $12 billion in total assets. In 2010, those ESG investments totaled $569 billion, a growth of 4,641%.

    Despite that growth, most of it has occurred within the mutual fund space. Considering the popularity of exchange-traded funds, there are more »

  • Buys for Commercial and Industrial Construction Exposure

    By Damon Churchwell - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: ETN, HUB-B, UTX

    Activity in the commercial/non-residential construction sector, including institutional projects such as hospitals and schools, tends to lag that of the housing market. In light of the ongoing positive metrics in the home-building industry, such as rising housing starts and new home sales, along with dwindling supply, commercial and industrial spending is apt to remain on the upswing as well.

    Participants in these markets have been apparently aiming to boost more »

  • Jim Cramer Is Bullish About These Stocks, What Should You Do?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, ETN, IBM

    Given that CNBC host and investing personality Jim Cramer achieved significant success as a hedge fund manager before going into the media, many investors like to pay at least some attention to what he is thinking. Of course, through his various media appearances Cramer expresses positive or negative views on a wide variety of stocks, so it’s impossible to buy everything he likes.

  • Conglomerate Stocks That Will Drive Your Returns in 2013

    By Madhukar Dubey - March 23, 2013 | Tickers: MMM, CAT, ETN

    Investing in conglomerate stocks presents a very different and unique risk/reward opportunity. They maintain a diversified portfolio of companies that provide a good mix of growth and return, while at the same time they mitigate the risk of overall failure.

    Continuous acquisition, diversification, disinvestment, and joint ventures are traits of big conglomerates. In this article, I have discussed three large conglomerates that have, recently, either completed an acquisition, or more »

    Ray Dalio founded Bridgewater Associates out of his apartment in 1973 and after 28 years, he gave up the title of CEO last year. Dalio is now “mentor” and continues to serve as co-CIO. Bridgewater manages institutional money only, around $120 billion, with the true uniqueness of the firm being its culture – driven by utter transparency.

He doesn't have the name of a Buffett or Soros, but the manager of hedge fund Sandell Asset Management has amassed quite a fortune, as Forbes estimates Sandell's net worth is close to $1.1 billion. Officially the eleventh richest man in Sweden, the sheer size of Sandell's fund has shrunk over the years, and now more »
