  • Three Stocks Seeing High Short Interest, But Two Are Presenting Value

    By Brian Nichols - December 27, 2012 | Tickers: MLNX, NOW, TDC

    It always puzzles me when shorts surround themselves around certain stocks that have seemingly strong fundamental performance. At the same time, there are stocks where a short position is completely logical. With that being said, I am looking at three stocks that have seen a recent increase in short activity, two of which are illogical and one that looks to be a great short investment.

  • These 3 Companies Are Cash Cows

    By Chad Henage - December 12, 2012 | Tickers: CA, INFY, ORCL, TDC

    You have the choice of two different companies, tell me which one sounds better. 

    Company #1 – This company produces enough cash to pay the bills and expand and pays a good dividend. They also are committed to buying back shares. Finally, they know the importance of a strong balance sheet so periodically they will use extra cash to pay down debt or increase their cash position.

    Company #2 – This company doesn't produce enough cash to pay the bills, but they can issue new stock or debt to continue expanding. They are probably a few years from reporting good earnings because their cost of expansion will continue to be high. In five years, this will be a great investment.

    By sylvia kronstadt - August 24, 2012 | Tickers: ACN, EMC, HPQ, INTC, IBM, TDC

    When I began coming across web pages about me -- my associations, my tone, my impact, my achievements and my "threat level" -- all of which were grossly but delightfully incorrect, I decided to reverse-engineer all that snooping and do a bit of "robust authentication" myself. My look into the big-data phenomenon indicates that it is grossly oversold, overused and often just plain hilarious.
