  • Bargain Hunting in Italy

    By Ryan Peckyno - August 18, 2013 | Tickers: E, LUX, TI

    With many U.S. equities trading at all-time highs and the stock market as a whole trading at a hefty earnings multiple, the U.S. market isn't looking that attractive, especially if you consider that the U.S. has massive governmental debt, is ranked 128th in the world in GDP real growth rate, 95th in unemployment, and that more than 15% of our population lives below the poverty line more »

  • You Should Look at Italy Right Now

    By Federico Zaldua - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: E, ISNPY.PK, TI

    Italy is going through its most difficult time since World War II ended. An endless recession coupled with high unemployment has deteriorated investor sentiment. That said, there are bright spots that should be taken into account. For starters, politicians already agreed to push for much-needed labor and tax reforms. On the other hand, some macroeconomic indicators such as a current account balance in surplus territory, low private-sector leverage and low more »
  • International Oil Stocks on the Cheap

    By Reuben Brewer - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: E, RDS-B, TOT

    International stocks are trading at a 35% discount to U.S. stocks according to Russ Koesterich, Chief Investment Strategist for BlackRock. Dividend investors looking for undervalued foreign stocks should take a look at Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-B), ENI (NYSE: E), and Total (NYSE: TOT).

    Still Room to Run

    Koesterich believes that, overall, stocks can keep moving higher because he doesn't expect the Federal Reserve to up rates since more »

  • Apache Is a Clear Buy

    By William Alder - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: APA, E, RDS-A

    Apache (NYSE: APA) is an undervalued stock. This has been due to low profits after the company acquired several assets financed by high capex spending and debt. The company also faces problems with the uncertainty in Egypt. But Apache recently announced a sale of its Gulf of Mexico assets that will do much to alleviate its debt. As far as the situation in Egypt, investors should keep an eye on more »

  • European Vs. American Equities: Valuation Gap

    By Federico Zaldua - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: ADDYY, E, NSRGY

    With economic momentum building in Europe (PMI new orders and real M1 growth are consistent with a GDP growth of 1%, well above consensus) I think its time to start looking towards Europe for opportunities. Besides, more fiscal flexibility in the common currency area and a slightly weaker Euro should also help European corporations in the 2013/2014 period.
     
    Of course, the US is, from a macro perspective, in much more »
  • This Company Is Set to Skyrocket

    By Piyush Arora - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: APC, E, NBL

    When it comes to the oil and gas sector, it's hard to find value plays. The task becomes daunting when we start scouting for large cap companies. While some companies are shifting to high margin projects, others are shedding assets to focus on their core competencies. But as a rare find, Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE: APC) appears to have all the ingredients of a perfect value play.

  • An Italian Job: You Should Watch This Stocks

    By Federico Zaldua - July 19, 2013 | Tickers: E, ISNPY.PK, TI

    Italy is going through its most difficult time since the second world war ended. An endless recession coupled with high unemployment have deteriorated investor's sentiment towards the country.  That said, there are some bright spots in the horizon. Politicians are already closing lines behind prime minister Letta and some hard data are already ameliorating the perspectives on the third biggest economy in the Euro-zone.

  • These Italian Stocks Look Attractive

    By Bob Ciura - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: E, FIATY.PK, LUX

    Investing across the globe is a journey fraught with potential hazards. Geopolitical concerns seem to rear their ugly heads on a weekly basis, serving to create a heightened level of risk. This is particularly true in Europe, where the ongoing fiscal crisis continues to be a huge drag on economic growth.

    At the same time, there remain plenty of highly profitable stocks that call Europe home. Even in Italy, where more »

  • 3 Reasons to Buy this Oil and Gas Company

    By Piyush Arora - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: APC, COP, E

    Natural gas prices have been steadily rising over the last year, and ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) witnessed a 6% improvement in its cash margins in the last quarter as a result. The company produces around 40% natural gas, while petroleum liquids account for the rest. This allows ConocoPhillips to perform in line with the rising gas prices. Here are three reasons why ConocoPhillips appears to be a solid investment option.

  • Riches in Israel and Cyprus: Why You Must Invest

    By Jaiyant Cavale - June 10, 2013 | Tickers: E, NBL, TOT

    Noble Energy (NYSE: NBL), which made significant new deep-water natural gas discoveries off the coast of Israel last month, has begun to drill at a new appraisal well off the coast of Cyprus. The company discovered 5 trillion to 8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in 2011. The resumption of drilling is expected to quantify and confirm previous findings.

    BlackRock's chief investment strategist believes that foreign stocks and the energy sector are both good places to look right now. To find a few names, I reviewed the latest semi-annual report for BlackRock Global Dividend Income Fund. Three names that stuck out were Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-B), Total (NYSE: TOT), and Eni (NYSE: E).

  • Italy, Spain, And Greece: Are There Any Opportunities?

    By Federico Zaldua - May 23, 2013 | Tickers: SAN, E, GREK | Editor's Choice

    Following Fitch's upgrade of Greece's credit rating, ten-year Greek government bond yields fell below 8%, the lowest yield since June 2010. Meanwhile, Italian and Spanish bonds have also rallied strongly and then now yield 3.85% and 4.18% respectively. All these economies are still suffering, but some world-famous hedge funds are already making long bets. Should you go long on any of those economies?

    The second most valuable company in the world, ExxonMobil (NYSE: XOM), currently trades with a price to earnings ratio under 10. Exxon has only traded with a valuation this low in its history two other times, in 2008 and 1985.

    On April 25, the company reported first-quarter financial results. Compared to the same quarter in 2012, net income increased 5.29%, from $9.45 billion ($2 per share) to $9 more »

  • The EPA's Optimistic Report Will Boost These Companies

    By Piyush Arora - May 10, 2013 | Tickers: COG, LNG, E

    Thanks to the shale gas boom in North America, natural gas has proved to be an economically viable replacement for coal in the continent. But, mining for natural gas involves the leakage of methane, the greenhouse effect of which is 21 times greater than carbon dioxide. Currently, methane accounts for 9% of total greenhouse gases, and a ramp up in it natural gas production would obviously have disastrous environmental consequences more »

    By Reuben Brewer - May 2, 2013 | Tickers: BP, E, RDS-B, TOT

    Oil and natural gas are key natural resources in the world. Although wars have been fought over the energy sources, the companies the drill for them tend to be relatively stable investments. Some of the most important players in Europe are Royal Dutch Shell (NYSE: RDS-B), BP (NYSE: BP), Total (NYSE: TOT), and ENI (NYSE: E).

  • Buy, Sell, or Hold for This Offshore Energy Company?

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CIE, E, STO, TOT, EGY

    Hunting for overlooked energy companies, I stumbled upon VAALCO Energy (NYSE: EGY) that holds producing properties in Gabon and significant exploration acreage in Gabon, Equatorial Guinea, and Angola. It seems that the good times have bypassed the company's stock, which has underperformed over the last months. However, don't be blinded by this underperformance, because the fundamentals tell us a different story.

  • Find Big Dividends Among These European Oil Majors

    By Bob Ciura - April 11, 2013 | Tickers: E, STO, TOT

    Investing in Europe might seem like a scary proposition, what with market-rattling headlines being made seemingly on a daily basis. News out of Europe continues to suggest the region hasn’t made headway in its ongoing fiscal crisis, and investors would be understandably reluctant to allocate a portion of their portfolio to a continent in the midst of financial calamity.

    However, in times like these it’s important to separate more »
