  • This Coffee Giant Is Going Strong

    By tarun bachhawat - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: GOOG, GMCR, DANOY.PK, SBUX

    Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) has always offered a premium coffee experience in terms of taste and overall ambiance. The company, like its coffee, is trading at a premium, which I believe is because of the strength it has generated as a result of its continuous acquisitions and partnerships. In this article I will focus on those acquisitions and partnerships that make it more than just a coffee shop.

  • Tyson’s Recent Sales Show that Chicken Is a Winner

    By Eileen Rojas - August 12, 2013 | Tickers: CAG, DANOY.PK, TSN

    Sales of chicken are hot as consumers are more inclined to buy it rather than more expensive meats like beef and pork. Tyson Foods (NYSE: TSN), the largest U.S. meat producer by revenue, reported strong third quarter sales driven in part by strong operating income in its chicken segment.

    Meat producers like Tyson have benefited from falling grain prices, which have decreased the company’s costs related to animal more »

  • Acquisitions and Partnerships Make This Company a Great Investment

    By pranay agrawal - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: GMCR, DANOY.PK, SBUX

    When Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) opened its first outlet in Mumbai, India, I went just to have a cold coffee out of curiosity and nothing more. In my first visit, I was amazed to see its comfortable couches, great ambiance and, most importantly, the traffic it had generated.

    Almost a year since, I've become a regular there and enjoy five cold coffees a week almost religiously. This article is my more »

  • The Coffee's Hot, But the Stocks Are Steaming

    By Nathaniel Matherson - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: DNKN, DANOY.PK, SBUX

    One of my favorite consumer companies reported its third-quarter results last week amid high expectations. If you have followed my articles over the last year, you would be fully aware of the love I've held for Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX), both as a stock and as a mobile office in my case. Shares soared over 7.5% to an all-time high following what was a spectacular quarter on every imaginable more »

  • Why Starbucks Is Effortlessly Taking Over the World

    By Leo Sun - July 31, 2013 | Tickers: DANOY.PK, MCD, PNRA, SBUX

    Seven years ago, coffee giant Starbucks’ (NASDAQ: SBUX) future looked grim. Bearish critics claimed that its market was saturated and that its best days were behind it. Between 2006 and 2008, the company’s margins crumbled, its earnings plunged, and its share price bottomed out at around $8 per share.

    However, founder and former CEO Howard Schultz returned in early 2008, and his forward thinking plans for future growth paid more »

  • 3 French Companies for Your Portfolio

    By Federico Zaldua - July 30, 2013 | Tickers: AXAHY.PK, DANOY.PK, TOT

    Against what many analysts had expected, there is increasing evidence that France's macroeconomic conditions are improving. For example, since January, the increase in France's PMI new orders has been impressive at 9.1 points (compared to 2.5 points for the Euro-area aggregate). With this in mind, let's take a look at some French companies.

  • 3 Dividend Picks From Mario Gabelli

    By Reuben Brewer - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: GLW, GPC, DANOY.PK

    Gabelli Equity Income is a unique beast in the fund world because it has a managed distribution policy, paying $0.03 per share as a monthly dividend. That leads to a modest dividend yield of 1.5%. However, the fund has outperformed the market over the long-term, so income investors should take the time to review its portfolio. The portfolio manager recently highlighted Corning (NYSE: GLW), Danone (NASDAQOTH: DANOY.PK), and more »

  • Why Investors Should Consider French Stocks

    By Bob Ciura - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: DANOY.PK, SNY, TOT

    Investors may write off France as a country of punishing taxes and economic calamity, but the truth is, there are some extremely profitable companies that call France home. It’s not hard to understand why. Despite the ongoing headwinds presented by the widespread European fiscal crisis, France remains the fifth-largest economy in the world by gross domestic product, according to the United Nations.

    And, recent evidence suggests that the French more »

  • Baby Food: Go Long If Mr. Market Exaggerates the Effects

    By Federico Zaldua - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: DANOY.PK, MJN, NSRGY

    According to a survey by Credit Suisse, in China, 90% of respondents pay attention to food safety in their daily lives and 76% care more about food safety than a year ago. I do not blame them. In recent years, there have been reports of clenbuterol-contaminated pork, harmful chemicals in steamed buns, poisonous bean sprouts or even melamine contaminated milk, among several other food-contamination issues.

  • Can This Soda Giant Take On Yogurt's Big Wigs?

    By Reuben Brewer - July 10, 2013 | Tickers: GIS, DANOY.PK, PEP

    Yogurt is an increasingly popular food in The United States. The two big names are General Mills' (NYSE: GIS) Yoplait and Danone (NASDAQOTH: DANOY.PK), which together control about 50% of the U.S. market. Can soda and snack giant PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP) break into a market with such large and entrenched players?

  • Which Infant Formula Stock is a Best Buy Now?

    By Anh HOANG - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: ABT, DANOY.PK, MJN

    I always consider a short-term stock price decline to be an opportunity for investors to accumulate a company’s shares at a low price. Recently, Mead Johnson Nutrition (NYSE: MJN) experienced a significant decline of 8.1% on the market to only $68.85 per share. The huge fall in its stock price was due to the news that China has launched an investigation into possible antitrust violations. Other infant more »

  • Is this Stock the Mother's Milk?

    By Marshall Hargrave - July 8, 2013 | Tickers: ABT, DF, DANOY.PK, MJN

    The major baby formula companies were under pressure last week on reports that China is launching an investigation related to price fixing among the major formula companies. Mead Johnson (NYSE: MJN) is taking the most heat and its stock has fallen off a cliff. 

    It's only fair that Mead Johnson is being pulled down the most, given nearly 80% of its revenues are derived form the Asia and Latin more »

  • Is This Company's Cash Cow Drying Up?

    By Leo Sun - July 6, 2013 | Tickers: ABT, DANOY.PK, MJN, NSRGY

    Shares of Mead Johnson Nutrition (NYSE: MJN) plunged recently, after Chinese regulators stated that they were investigating claims that foreign companies were intentionally overcharging for infant formula to capitalize on fears of domestic contamination of dairy products. Foreign milk-powder companies have raised their prices 30% since 2008, according to China’s state-controlled People’s Daily newspaper.

  • Should We Invest in Those Food Giants Now?

    By Anh HOANG - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: GIS, DANOY.PK, K

    In the past twelve months, food businesses like General Mills (NYSE: GIS), Danone (NASDAQOTH: DANOY.PK) and Kellogg Company (NYSE: K) experienced good growth. Of this group, Kellogg is the best performing stock with more than a 31% gain. General Mills ranked second with a more than 26% rise, while Danone’s share price has increased nearly 24.4% since the middle of 2012. All of those three stocks outperformed the more »

    By William Bias - June 24, 2013 | Tickers: BNNY, DANOY.PK, WFM

    With healthcare costs on the rise, people demand healthier choices from their restaurants and grocery stores. Companies that cater to this rising trend have made their shareholders rich. The three companies below sell healthy food to a public who wants to live longer and curb ever rising healthcare costs.

  • These Companies Have a Formula for Success

    By Mark Yagalla - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: ABT, DANOY.PK, MJN

    As populations grow and as food safety concerns increase, parents are being very selective about the infant baby formulas they buy. Infant formula is manufactured and designed for feeding of babies under 12 months of age.

    In China there is a very strong demand for brand-name baby formula after tainted formula from a Chinese manufacturer left 6 babies dead and over 300,000 suffering from adverse effects. The result is more »

    Danone (NASDAQOTH: DANOY.PK) has been on an acquisition spree to expand its footprint in the global food & beverage business. Recently, it agreed to acquire as much as a 92% stake in Happy Family, a fast growing organic baby food company. It also snapped up a 50.1% stake in Sirma, a Turkish company specializing in flavored bottled waters and Home & Office Delivery. Since the beginning of the year, Danone has more »

    By Reuben Brewer - May 30, 2013 | Tickers: DANOY.PK, NSRGY, NTRI

    Eating right makes you healthier. That might sound simplistic, but Nestle (NASDAQOTH: NSRGY), Danone (NASDAQOTH: DANOY.PK), and NurtiSystem (NASDAQ: NTRI) are taking that idea to a whole new level. And there's money to be made along the way.

    It's simple logic that eating healthier foods can help you feel better. However, many people just don't eat the way they should. Thus, lifestyle-related more »

  • Bet Big on Boomers and Babies

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - May 28, 2013 | Tickers: ABT, DANOY.PK, MJN

    With more baby boomers hitting retirement age and their babies starting families (the so-called Echo Boom) several stocks are bound to benefit. There are plenty of ways to play the greying generation, but far fewer that cover the space at the ends of the womb-to-tomb continuum...and even fewer that cover both ends. And I'm not talking diaper stocks.

  • Taking the Ten Year Buffett Challenge

    By Matthew Luke - April 30, 2013 | Tickers: CHD, DEO, EBAY, DANOY.PK

    With Berkshire Hathaway’s annual shareholder meeting almost upon us, I am reminded of this investing gem Warren Buffett once said: “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for ten years.” That bit of advice is beautiful in its simplicity. Buffett is challenging us to think long-term with every investment decision. That is a challenge we should all accept; constructing ten more »
