  • Why Analysts Are Wrong About These Stocks

    By Bob Ciura - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: GRMN, PH, KR

    Sell-side analysts can be notoriously fickle, seemingly raising or lowering price targets based simply on whether or not a stock is currently going up or down.

    At the same time, though, sell-side research is still highly valued by institutional investors, including hedge funds and pension funds.

    Recently, analysts at Goldman Sachs released a list of stocks they believe to be over-valued and ripe for a correction. Are they right to more »

    According to a Global Industry Analyst report, the global industrial machinery market will reach $514 billion by 2015, with an annual growth rate of 7.2% from 2012.

  • Boeing: 'Air Traffic to Double Within 20 Years'

    By Phillip Woolgar - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: HON, PH, BA

    With the increasingly tight global village, countries like China and the United States seem more like neighbors than ever before. Analysts of the airline industry have said globalization will increase air traffic significantly, and on June 11, Boeing (NYSE: BA) reinforced that sentiment when it made a major statement, saying the number of commercial aircraft throughout the world will double in the next 20 years.

  • Are Aerospace Stocks Set to Soar?

    By Phillip Woolgar - June 9, 2013 | Tickers: HON, PH, BA

    As nations around the world become more integrated, and as globalization helps increase the quality of life for those in developing countries, the demand for aircraft will increase. This is because the growing international middle class now has disposable income with which to fund their dream vacations.

    Furthermore, with the increasing dependence of the world's economy on globalization, faster ways of transporting goods and people is a necessary step more »

  • How to Play an Improving Global PMI

    By Zain Abbas - May 28, 2013 | Tickers: CAT, KMT, PH

    One of the major headwinds facing the Industrial Resource sector is a lackluster global Purchasing Managers Index (PMI). PMI is an index that is a function of new orders, inventory levels, production, supplier deliveries and the employment environment. In short, it is an indicator of the economic health of the manufacturing sector.

    PMI remained under pressure through much of 2012 as global industrial activity weakened outside the U.S. The more »

  • The Aristocratic Touch

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - February 15, 2013 | Tickers: CVX, DE, JPM, PH

    Maybe you're not one of the millions addicted to  PBS' Downton Abbey, if you aren't I won't bore you, but my favorite character is the pretentious and pompous but well-meaning Lord Grantham who lost his fortune on stock in a Canadian railroad that went bankrupt. "But it was a sure thing," he bleats." Everyone one said it was a sure thing." His man in the city, as more »

  • Midwest Earnings Preview: Reports from Cleveland

    By John Macris - January 17, 2013 | Tickers: CRBC, FMER, PH, PGR

    Readers may recognize I am intimately familiar with the State of Ohio based on my college alma mater. While Ohio’s gross domestic product contracted more sharply than the country as a whole during the 2008-09 recession, data from the US Department of Commerce indicates that Ohio’s economy is now growing faster than the national average. In particular, thousands of new jobs are being created along the Utica Shale more »

  • Why Does Jim Cramer Like This Stock?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - October 11, 2012 | Tickers: ETN, EMR, ITT, JCI, PH

    Former hedge fund manager and current TV host Jim Cramer manages a charitable trust which discloses its positions, theoretically allowing investors to narrow down the massive volume of views that Cramer distributes into a manageable number of confidence picks. One recent addition to the trust’s portfolio is Eaton Corporation (NYSE: ETN), a $16 billion market cap electrical equipment company.

  • Dull as Dishwater=Dazzling Dividends

    By AnnaLisa Kraft - September 28, 2012 | Tickers: GPC, NWN, PH, PG

    There are four companies that aren’t hot, hot, hot-indeed, you might call them dull as dishwater, that have consistently raised dividends for 56 years. These are Genuine Parts Company, Procter & Gamble, Northwest Natural Gas, and Parker-Hannifin. Not exactly names that are on the tip of investors’ tongues but maybe should be, especially those looking for yield.

  • This Manufacturing Stock Could Pop

    By Sandeep Gupta - September 19, 2012 | Tickers: CBE, ETN, HON, ITT, PH

    Last month, Parker-Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH) announced a small divestiture. The company has agreed to sell the automotive air conditioning business to ContiTech AG of Germany. The divested business contributed approximately 1% of F12 revenue (14% of Climate and Industrial Controls segment revenue). I believe there is a further scope for such divestitures; in particular lower margin businesses. Looking forward, I see a number of levers that Parker Hannifin could more »
