Electric Car Dreamride To Nowhere - French Style / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKEEP ON TRUCKIN'
More precisely, keep on charging. Among the biggest no-no items on potential buyers, drivers and owners minds, when it concerns electric cars and vehicles, or "EVs", is the time needed to charge the things. Just slightly behind that no-no is the already well known horror of potential or possible EV owners: running out of 'juice', that is a flat battery and no way to charge it, on a Sunday night, in winter, far from anywhere. All they needed to do was buy a hybrid!

The Reason Fast-food Stocks Should Be Amongst Your Top Picks / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: InvestmentContrarian

The Reason Fast-food Stocks Should Be Amongst Your Top PicksChipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE/CMG) is one of my favorite places to grab a quick bite to eat. Yet, despite some stellar growth, the stock broke below $300.00 on Wednesday and has been steadily losing ground since trading at a 52-week high of $442.40 in April. Mounting concerns regarding future growth and multiple downgrades from analysts have hurt the stock. Hedge fund manager David Einhorn hammered another nail into the coffin when he said that Chipotle’s valuation “doesn’t make sense.”

How Many European Carmakers: Will Survive? / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It is unclear if all carmakers will survive without governmental help,” was the terse one-liner from the CEO, Hans Dieter Poetsch, of the VW-Porsche automaker group at the start of the Paris Motor Show.

For some European carmakers in an industry credited by carwatcher ACEA, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association with an annual turnover and revenues close to 500 billion euros in 2010, employing a total of around 12.5 million Europeans (direct and indirect), the end could come rather soon. For Dieter Poetsch and many analysts, carmakers in southern Europe producing small cars with low profit margins per car - and declining sales - will be the first to go. The bad news is that declining sales and an unremitting price war is causing industry wide and continent wide damage.

Why I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Military Industrial Complex, Investing in Defense Stocks / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGS Early, Contributing Writer writes: Last year when Congress formed its much-lauded "Supercommittee" to sort out America's debt crisis, there was a lot of handwringing about draconian budget cuts.

But true to form, on the eve of an election year, our politicians did nothing and the sequestration clock began to tick.

The Death of the Entertainment Industry / Politics / Sector Analysis

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are things that many people in the developed world take for granted, especially in the states and Western Europe. Jobs, health benefits, social safety nets, affordable credit for homes/cars/etc. and cheap energy certainly rank among the most vital expectations, but even those things have been called into question within the mainstream consciousness, if for no other reason than the fact that they have simply evaporated in many locations. What hasn't really disappeared, though, are the [mindless] entertainment industries - i.e. sports, movies and video games.

Why the Economics of the Airline Industry are Hopeless / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: American Airlines (NYSE:AMR) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Nov. 28, and the move reinforced once again what many have learned the hard way: The airline industry is an incredibly disappointing investment.

Previous airline flops like this prompted an old saying - possibly untrue - remarking that the airline industry has lost money since the Wright Brothers first flew.

U.S. Defense Stocks Under Fire From Super Committee Budget Cuts / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Defense stocks have become collateral damage in the battle raging in Congress over how to reduce the deficit by $1.2 trillion over the next decade.

Any mix of cuts and tax increases will certainly include significant reductions in defense spending. And if the Congressional "super committee" fails to come up with a plan, an automatic "sequestration" will kick in, which calls for half of the money -- $600 billion - to come out of defense.

Forget Halloween, It's the Christmas Shopping Season that Has Retailers Running Scared / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Holiday retail sales - which account for almost 40% of retail revenue, worth $453 billion in sales last year - are in jeopardy.

Consumer spending continues to be restrained by an unemployment rate that has stayed above 9% for 26 of the past 28 months. Furthermore, rising food and gasoline costs, fears of a new recession, the loss of equity from the housing collapse, and mountains of leftover credit card debt have prospective purchasers tightening their purse strings.

Biotech and the Unintended Consequences of Moore's Law / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday we turn away from Europe and QE2 and talk about something I find far more interesting, if not as immediate. I have been talking and emailing with Pat Cox of Breakthrough Technology Alerts a lot lately. There is just so much happening in the biotech space and, as long-time readers know, that is my hobby and the one place I actually buy stocks in this market.

There is just so much misinformation (and sometimes borderline lies by short-sellers). I asked Pat to give us an update on the state of the stem-cell world, and in typical Pat fashion he gives us a lot more to think about. Indeed, Moore’s Law is changing more than just computers.

Meanwhile, investors who are aware of its importance, and can track the volatile ups and downs of the companies that provide shipping services, frequently score big gains from its oft-repeating profit opportunities.

Defensive Stocks Sector Strength Points to S&P 500 Weakness / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

The recent sector strength of the Consumer staples ETF (XLP) over the Consumer discretionary ETF (XLY) indicates that money is now flowing out of a growth industry group and into a defensive sector. This action normally occurs during a period of weakness in the S&P 500.
Over the past few years, this shift in buying pressure between these two consumer sectors has provided guidance to the short term movements of the broad-based S&P 500. As models are indicating that a low in the index is expected in June, the returning performance of the defensive staples sector over discretionaries adds some additional evidence to the anticipated pullback.
