  • Keep Your Money Away From 2D Printing

    By Phillip Woolgar - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: HPQ, LXK, XRX

    In a 2D-printing market that is so competitive, even the giants are failing to keep up revenues. That competition makes operations difficult in an industry that demands massive resources to ensure product lines are current.

    The following are the three largest 2D-printing companies, and while I wouldn't recommend buying shares of any of them, not all should be completely ruled out.

    Lexmark International (NYSE: LXK) specializes in developing, manufacturing more »

  • 20% Just Isn’t Enough to Save This Company

    By Chad Henage - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: HPQ, PBI, SI, XRX

    The story of a company that's trying to turn around usually takes on a familiar tone. Tell me if this sounds familiar, “(we are taking) actions to enhance our balance sheet and capital allocation flexibility and exiting some non-strategic businesses.” Let me translate, we don’t have enough cash flow, we need to cut our debt to get out of trouble, and selling some of our businesses is the more »

  • This Is One of the Best Businesses in the World

    By Shmulik Karpf - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: FORR, IT, XRX

    I often find myself thinking about the perfect business: one that exhibits all the qualities that will ensure a highly profitable operation for years to come. It must have certain qualities to distinguish it from all the other businesses out there. It mustn't need a whole lot of assets to make money. That's because assets need maintenance, and a pricey overhead will certainly hurt the bottom-line. It must more »

  • This Stock Is No Bargain

    By Timothy Green - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: ACN, IBM, XRX

    In a world where hot stocks like Tesla get most of the attention, the dinosaurs of the stock market often get overlooked. People hear the name Xerox (NYSE: XRX), known for its ubiquitous photocopiers, which were all the rage 20-30 years ago, and they assume that the company is a dusty old has-been that should have gone bankrupt a long time ago. But here's what you see if you more »

  • Should You Invest in These Cash Cows

    By Nihar Patel - July 15, 2013 | Tickers: ATVI, ADBE, XRX

    Software is one of the most common types of products where the cost of selling one versus 1,000 is fairly marginal. There is very little replication cost for software as opposed to manufacturing physical products. Offering services can fall in the middle if it requires employees, but can also be an automated service or access to a software.

    These types of businesses come in many varieties, but when they more »

  • Xerox Still Has Value To Offers Shareholders

    By Rupert Nicholson - July 4, 2013 | Tickers: XRX

    The Digital Revolution

    Xerox (NYSE: XRX) is famous for its color and black-and-white laser printing. Recently, however, the company has started to move away from its traditional model as it seeks to become more competitive. Back in 2007, Xerox acquired Global Imaging Solutions and they have used this platform to develop connections with small businesses. The company has started to get rid of its low profit segments concentrating instead on more »

  • An Insider Just Bought This High Dividend Stock

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: CTL, FTR, PBI, RRD, XRX

    Mark Wright, an executive vice president at Pitney Bowes (NYSE: PBI), a business mail services company, directly acquired 15,000 shares of his company's stock on June 6 at an average price of $14.43 per share. We follow insider purchases because we think that insiders should purchase stock primarily when they are more confident than usual in the company’s prospects; at other times, it is rational for more »

  • Electronics: The Next 3-D Printing Frontier

    By BA McKenna - June 25, 2013 | Tickers: SSYS, XRX

    The current 3-D printers can spew out objects made from plastics, metals, ceramics, and other materials, but there's one notable thing they haven't yet been used to produce en masse – electronics. That's a biggie in today's world, where electronics are embedded in many commonplace products.

    Here are three entities which are working in diverse ways on using 3-D printing to produce electronic components and products.

  • There Are Better Alternatives to This Business Machines Company

    By Matthew Frankel - June 17, 2013 | Tickers: CAJ, HPQ, XRX

    The name Xerox (NYSE: XRX) has become synonymous with the copier business, with many office workers using phrases such as “I need to go Xerox these reports,” regardless of what company actually manufactured that particular copier. Xerox currently trades at a seemingly low valuation, pays a nice dividend, and is one of the market leaders. Is Xerox one of the few remaining bargains in the markets, or is it a more »

    By Madhukar Dubey - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: GRPN, JDSU, XRX

    Continuously strong earnings are a good fundamental indicator of long-term growth of a company. EPS gives a reliable futuristic overview, as it is driven by many aspects like sales growth, product demand, profit margins, and cost control.

    Understanding the importance of EPS, I have chosen three companies that are planning to increase their EPS in the future, but have had inconsistent EPS in the past. Let's find out what more »

  • Buy This Hidden Gem

    By Chris Lau - May 31, 2013 | Tickers: CSC, HPQ, XRX

    When Computer Sciences (NYSE: CSC) reported quarterly earnings, the company beat consensus estimates by $0.29 per share, earning $1.27 per share. Instead of bidding shares higher, investors took profits. One reason is that Computer Sciences touched a 52-week high of around $50 on several occasions. By the middle of May, when shares were bid to the $50 level, it sold off.

    Computer Sciences Corporation is an information technology more »

  • Is It Worth Investing in Paper?

    By Lior Cohen - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: HPQ, IP, XRX

    The recovery of Hewlett-Packard's (NYSE: HPQ) stock during the year made me think about paper and paper-related products as an investment. Is the paper industry profitable? I observed from watching the NBC hit show The Office that paper companies are suppose to lose money left and right; with the shift toward emails, paper has become superfluous in the office. Are paper-related products (printers, photo copiers, etc.) or paper worth more »

  • What to Focus on as Risk Aversion Rises for Tech Stocks

    By Chris Lau - April 17, 2013 | Tickers: AMAT, FSLR, NFLX, XRX

    A significantly large gap between consensus analyst targets and the share price of companies is a starting point for investors screening for investing ideas in a down market. After the Dow dropped a net 200 points on the week of April 15 2013 while the Nasdaq dropped 80 points, opportunities will arise for the patient investor.

    By BA McKenna - April 16, 2013 | Tickers: DDD, XONE, ONVO, SSYS, XRX

    3D Systems (NYSE: DDD)Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS)have been printing money so fast that they're showing up the Fed! I was so sure of their ability to churn out the green last June that I did what I make a point not to do: initiate communication with a friend or relative about particular stocks using definitive terms.

  • Microsoft Did Not Hit a Soft Spot

    By Alexander Cho - April 16, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, DELL, HPQ, MSFT, XRX

    The whole world is being turned upside down or at least Silicon Valley is being turned upside down by the declining computer sales statistics that have been presented by the International Data Corporation. According to Chris Hill, the host of Motley Fool Money, “shares of Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) fell on Thursday in the wake of a report by IDC that PC sales declined 14% in the first quarter.
