Follow the Baby Boom to Biotech Stock Profits / Companies / BioTech

By: TLSReport

In recent years, entrepreneurial therapists have comprised the fast-growing sector in outpatient physical therapy. But companies like Agility Health are beginning to seize acquisition opportunities and market share in this growing sector. Steven Davidson, CEO of Agility Health Inc., tells The Life Sciences Report how his company is innovating in the physical therapy space, improving patient care and clients' bottom lines through its management expertise and proprietary software, AgileRPM. With baby boomers aging and the Affordable Care Act increasing access to services, physical therapy just might be the safe haven sector to shield your portfolio from macroeconomic uncertainty.

Petrobras is a 'Scheme, Not a Stock' / Companies / Oil Companies

By: Bloomberg

Jim Chanos spoke with Bloomberg Television anchor Stephanie Ruhle from the Robin Hood Investor's Conference in New York today. Chanos described Petrobras as a "scheme," saying that optimism it will benefit if Dilma Rousseff is voted out of office is unfounded: "Every time Dilma's poll numbers go up, Petrobras's stock goes down...Even if Neves wins, it doesn't change the economics" at Petrobras.

STEPHANIE RUHLE, BLOOMBERG: Jim, we will get to talk about China, but you just left the stage. You have been followed out here by attendees talking about your big idea, Petrobras. Talk to us.

Is October the Month for Technology Stocks? / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Investment_U

David Becker writes: Technology stocks generally perform well in October as investors begin to focus on third quarter earnings. While the group as a whole has outperformed the broader markets, there are a number of both software and hardware companies that have experienced stellar performance.

One way to measure the performance of a sector or a specific stock is to analyze its seasonality. Seasonality can be defined as regular changes that occur to a stock or sector every calendar year. For example, if the price of a stock climbs every October then it has a seasonal pattern.

Tesco Supermarket Crisis Worse To Come as Customers Vanish! / Companies / Corporate News

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's a year since I started warning that Tesco was in crisis and that investors should bail out immediately (£3.80) and so far with the share price more than halving (£1.74) this mega corporation trend trajectory towards becoming a penny stock remains in tact. However, I fear things are about to get worse, much worse even to the point that within a few short months we could even be contemplating unimaginable, EXTINCTION!

Stocks Got Their Piece – Now It’s Our Turn / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: This morning’s 600-point neck-breaking swing in the Dow Jones Industrial Average only added to the pain of the big sell-off over the past week and a half.

And in our realm of tech, chip stocks came under especially hard pressure after the CEO of Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP) said that “another industry correction has begun.”

But you shouldn’t be joining the crowd and dumping stocks at this point.

It's one longtime DailyWealth readers should already know.
 
Selling the basics works.
 
"The basics" are products that the average consumer can't or won't live without... that have tremendous brand loyalty... and that don't break the bank. Things like soda, cigarettes, and soap.

Bill Ackman: I'm not a Crybaby Shareholder / Companies / Investing 2014

By: Bloomberg

In an interview with Bloomberg's Hans Nichols from the Euronext Amsterdam, Pershing Square Holdings Founder and CEO Bill Ackman said, he's preparing to buy a 'decent-sized stake' in a U.S. based company, "The cash that we've raised we intend to use for a new commitment. So we have a new investment we're going to announce probably in the next 45-60 days, and the capital will go for that new investment."

Ackman told Nichols that Pershing Square can exist and do well without him," I'm not planning on going anywhere. But we've actually built Pershing Square Holdings with a key man provision that says if I were to disappear, then shareholders could elect -- would have vote to continue the entity and I think that vote would be a favorable vote. It's been a very good, it's been a good place to have capital for the past 11 years."

Quantum Artificial Intelligence and ‘Humanoid’ Robots / Companies / Robotics

By: DK_Matai

Why do we spend so much time looking at our smart phone?  The smart phone we carry -- Android or iPhone -- is an impressive machine, with computing speeds and storage capacities thousands of times those of desktop Personal Computers (PCs) and laptops from only a few years ago.  The 'apps' we use every day are enhancing our capacity to function in the complex and truly globalised world we now encounter at work, home and play.  Imagine living without that smart phone which provides an additional silicon brain?  As Moore's Law climaxes, our smart watch is likely to outshine our present smart phone the way our smart phones now eclipse old PCs and laptops.  Yet, there is something missing...

Bet you sold Apple and Google a long time ago / Companies / Investing 2014

By: John_Mauldin

My good friend Barry Ritholtz, famous for launching The Big Picture blog (and since graduating to being a regular Bloomberg columnist as well as writing a weekly column for the Washington Post), is well-known for being a contrarian. Barry is a regular dinner partner when I get to New York, and he also participates in the annual Maine fishing trip. We frequently trade information … and barbs. The word colorful affectionately comes to mind when I think of Barry (and maybe opinionated would work).

How Theater Chains Can Fight Netflix / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Submissions

Netflix has just inked a four-movie deal with Adam Sandler that threatens to shake up the big theater chains by radically altering the way movies are distributed and viewed.  It will allow Netflix to produce movies and to stream them directly to customers’ home entertainment centers and computers, completely bypassing exhibit houses.  The online Washington Post put this ominous headline on the story: “Why the Adam Sandler deal with Netflix could doom theaters…”  Exhibitors, especially big chains like Regal Cinemas, Cinemark and AMC, are understandably upset.  But they needn’t be. When they come to their senses, they’ll realize not only that they have the means to compete with online movie producer/distributors such as Netflix , but to do so in a way that promises to usher in a golden era for the film medium itself.

Tech’s Fastest Growing Sector Could Make You Rich / Companies / Tech Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Short sellers have their knives out for GoPro Inc.

And that’s the least of the wearable sports camera maker’s problems right now.

GoPro’s share priceseems to be flopping around wildly on news: surging 11% after a new product announcement, then sinking the same after the company’s founders found a loophole that allows them to sell some of their stock early.

The stock has spiked again since then – but I don’t expect that to last.

Let’s Watch as the Big Bank “Fixers” Scramble and Flee / Companies / Banksters

Shah Gilani writes: If you can’t beat ‘em (or manipulate ‘em), then don’t join ‘em.

That’s the new Wall Street mantra, as evidenced by happenings in the “fixing” world.

Talk about irony. “Fixing” or “fix” are Wall Street terms used to describe how benchmarks are priced on hundreds of instruments, from the Libor and other foreign currency exchange rates to gold, silver and swaps.

Bill Gates Says he's 'very happy' / Companies / Microsoft

By: Bloomberg

Bill Gates sat down with Bloomberg Television anchor Erik Schatzker at the Sibos conference in Boston today, where they discussed Microsoft's strategy, the Ebola outbreak, his philanthropic efforts, financial payment systems in Africa and more.

On whether Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is moving fast enough, Gates said, "I'm very happy with what he's doing. I see a new sense of energy. There's a lot of opportunity there, some things the company isn't the leader on, and he sees that he needs to change that."

On Ebola hitting the U.S., Gates said, "...the fact that this Dallas patient was identified, the contacts are being traced, I feel confident the CDC is very much on top of that. I wish every country had a health system like that...the US government's really stepping up on this and I think that is going to let the world get on top of it."
