    By Meena Krishnamsetty - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: DG, HCA, NTAP, QCOM

    One common objection to using hedge funds’ 13F filings to help find potential stock picks is that the information in these filings is a bit old; in most cases, the most recent wave of 13Fs disclose many of a fund’s long equity positions as of the end of March.

    By Lee Samaha - June 8, 2013 | Tickers: AGN, CTXS, CL, NTAP, SHW

    In the end, numbers are just numbers and while they are an indispensable part of an investor's self-assessment, they do not always reveal the full details. For example, my last month closed with a negligible loss but the truth is, I started the month notably down after two profit warnings on the last day of April. In retrospect, it was a pleasing month and I think there are some more »

    By Shmulik Karpf - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: EMC, NTAP, WDC

    I believe that the data storage industry is one of the more interesting industries out there. As technology becomes more advanced and more popular in third-world countries, the pending question will become not how to create data, but rather, how to store it in an optimal way that allows a swift yet secure access to it.

  • Data Is Exploding, Buy Cloud Storage Providers

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - April 12, 2013 | Tickers: EMC, HPQ, IBM, NTAP, VMW

    The past year has been alright for the market as a whole, but EMC (NYSE: EMC) has lagged with the stock down 19% in the last 52 weeks. The $49 billion market cap data storage software and solutions company actually turned in decent financial performance in 2012, with revenue up 9% from the previous year and earnings increasing by 11%, but apparently these numbers disappointed investor expectations.
