  • American Airlines’ Remains A Great Stock To Invest In

    The ongoing power struggles in middle-east comprises the latest one being the standoff between Saudi Arabia and Yemen Shia rebels. The latest geo-political scuffle in the Middle-East has given rise to speculative oil prices, in the fear of a possible shortage of oil. Millions of barrels pass through the 18 mile Bab el-Mandeb point which lies between Yemen and Djibouti separating the Gulf of Aden from the Red Sea and the Suez Canal. By the end of the trading season on March 26, this reflected on the recovery shown by the oil sector. The trading hours saw the industry standard Brent crude oil, due for delivery in the month of April rise by 4.46% to close at $59 per barrel and the West Texas crude gained 4.19% to close at $51.27 a barrel. Experts believe that this knee jerk reaction may have a temporary effect on oil prices; as Saudi Arabian, Nigerian and Mexican oil is waiting to hit the U.S. shores.

  • Baron Opportunity Fund Fourth Quarter 2014 Commentary

    Baron Opportunity Fund had a modest fourth quarter, gaining 3.56%, but trailing both the Russell Midcap Growth Index, which rose 5.84%, and the large-cap S&P 500 Index, which increased 4.93%.

    Review & Outlook As I’ve written in past letters, 2014 was a challenging year for the Baron Opportunity Fund. Performance was not up to our (and my) historical standards. When the market turned in mid-March, we were a top decile fund against our peer group for the prior 5- and 10-year periods (according to Morningstar data).* But the Fund trailed the market averages materially last year. As I detailed throughout the year, the market environment presented a significant headwind to the Fund’s consistent strategy of investing in high growth, innovative businesses, and, with the clarity of 20/20 hindsight, we made some missteps of our own. For those investors who continue to place their trust in us, I want to personally thank you for your support and patience. It is our aim to prove 2014 the anomaly I believe it was.

  • AMD’s FreeSync The New Blue Eyed Boy In The World Of Gaming Technology

    The gaming world is going gaga over FreeSync technology launched by Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD). It is an open software standard for PC games. The software has been designed by AMD and offers effortless motion, while also deleting image tearing. The good part is that the frame rate remains intact and makes the gameplay better. This feature resembles the VSync setting, which the user can manually enable to prevent tearing, while gaming. In addition, v-sync h holds a game’s frame rate to 60 per second and can impact smoothness. FreeSync aims at offering the benefits of VSync, albeit not disturbing the amount of frames per second and overall gaming performance.

    As the name suggests, the FreeSync takes a dig at the costly GSync of Nvidia Corporation (NVDA), its direct competitor. However, AMD has not only received good response to its product, but Nvidia is definitely in trouble with analysts who have downgraded its ratings. With AMD’s technology doing well and being cheaper, it won’t be long before computer companies opt for it, good news for investors and shareholders.


  • ConAgra Q3 2015 Earnings Beat Estimates

On a non-GAAP basis, the company swung to a net loss of $954.1 million, or $2.23 a share for the quarter, from a profit of $234.3 million, or 52 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Following the results, ConAgra shares was up around 2.8% at $35.72 at closing bell.

  • Technology Sector Dividend Aristocrats To Vie For

    When it comes to dividends paid out, the technology sector slightly lags behind other sectors, because most of the technology companies focus on reinvesting their profits back into business and spending on research and development or developing internal infrastructure. Even some of the biggest names in the technology industry cannot match some of the lesser known names in the pharma or consumer product sector as far as dividends are concerned. With these factors in mind, companies that pay out reasonable dividends too are considered in high regard by investors who want to invest heavily in this sector. Let us see some of the top dividend stocks in the technological industry.

  • IVA Funds 2014 Year in Review

    The performance of global equity markets was dispersed this year with U.S. equities performing well along with indices in China, while other major International markets suffered, especially with their performance measured in U.S. dollars. The Federal Reserve ended its quantitative easing program in October 2014, and in the latter half of 2014 we saw the U.S. dollar strengthen significantly against all major currencies while the price of crude oil fell drastically, sliding to a five year low. Broadly speaking, the global economic recovery is being led by the U.S. while economic conditions in Japan, Europe, and China have weakened. Despite Japan ramping up their quantitative easing program, it is struggling to hit its 2% inflation target and it slipped into a recession in November after two quarters of negative gross domestic product (GDP) growth. Europe continues to struggle with low inflation and slowing growth, thus the European Central Bank seems willing to expand its balance sheet in 2015 in an attempt to boost lending and avoid deflation. And growth in China continues to slow.

    It wasn’t a smooth ride for global equity markets as they exhibited quite a bit of volatility this year: from late January to early February 2014, from late July to early August 2014, from the beginning of September to mid-October 2014, and in the first half of December 2014. We capitalized on the market volatility this year by finding some new opportunities and adding to existing positions when their share price fell. Over the year, we built meaningful positions in Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (XKRX:000830) (technology, South Korea) and News Corporation (NWSA) (consumer discretionary, U.S.), and also added positions in Henderson Land Development Co. Ltd. (HKSE:00012) (financials, Hong Kong) and Altran Technologies SA (XPAR:ALT) (technology, France) in both Funds. Our equity exposure totaled 52.2% in Worldwide and 57.5% in International at year-end.


  • Other Highly Concentrated Fund´s Portfolio

    Over the past days hedge funds have been filing their form 13-F, which is a quarterly report of equity holdings by filed institutional investment managers with at least $100 million in equity assets under management, as required by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In this article, let´s concentrate in one particular hedge fund and try to see the principal holdings in its portfolio. I will look into David Tepper (Trades, Portfolio)´s Appaloosa Management LP.

    Recently the fund reported its equity portfolio, as at the end of December. The total value of the portfolio amounted to $4.05 billion. The filing revealed that at the end of December, the fund added 18 new positions to its equity portfolio, and sold out of 12 other companies. The top ten portfolio holdings as of the end of the quarter represented 75.69%. The largest changes from previous 13-F´s fillings were in the consumer discretionary, industrials and finance sector.

  • A Few Reasons to Invest in Tyson Foods

    Tyson Foods (TSN) recently demonstrated impressive financial results in the fourth quarter of 2014. Its sales rose 14% while its operating income and adjusted earnings per share increased 20% and 32% respectively for the quarter. The company continues to grow exceptionally well and quickly. Looking forward Tyson Foods should benefit from the growing demand for chicken, pork and beef. Also, the recent acquisition of Hillshire brands should turn out to be a catalyst for the company in the long run.

  • Corning: A Solid Long-Term Investment

    Corning (GLW) has performed consistently well in the past 12 months. Its top and bottom line rose 29% and 24% respectively for fiscal year 2014. The main driver for its earnings growth was the integration CPM and Korea. Also, its non-display segment remained quite profitable for the company throughout the year. GLW added more than $100 million from synergies of its product portfolio from multiple businesses. These businesses demonstrate great prospects for Corning in the long run.

    Corning sees great opportunities attached with its synergy from CPM, optical communication, environmental LCD Glass and Display segment. These segments look fairly progressive and should drive its growth in 2015 and beyond. Moreover, its cost-reduction efforts have been outstanding in almost all the departments of its businesses. The continual innovation in products with better technology is helping the company to reduce its manufacturing costs. These pains should assist the company to improve its profitability and yield higher returns to shareholders going forward.

  • This Home Improvement Retail Stock Looks Like a Good Bet

    Restoration Hardware (RH) has been an up trending stock ever since its IPO was launched and has grown more than three times over the period. Even in the second quarter the company reported significant growth in both revenue and profits. On the flipside, revenue failed to impress the street as it lagged behind the analysts’ consensus and the stock declined.

    However, the stock mainly tumbled as the seller of high-end home furnishing cut its sales forecast for the year. But this could be seen more as a consolidation after having a rally in the month of June. Moreover, the company has strong fundamentals and with an improving housing market there could be more upside to Restoration Hardware in the days ahead.


  • Is Hess a Good Long-Term Investment?

    Just like any other oil company, Hess (HES) has been severely affected by falling crude prices. However, the company got some relief while stating its recent quarterly numbers. The results were mainly driven by increased production at its Bakken shale formation along with lowered costs. But the stock is behaving just like any other stock in this space and tanked considerably in the past year with the current price trading near its 52-week low. Leaving the near-term volatility apart, let’s see how the company is doing from a long-term perspective.

  • Investors Can Take a Slice of This Uncooked Pizza Manufacturer

    Pizza is an all-time hit among people of all ages. Whenever the word “pizza” comes to mind, it usually means it will be delivered at home or it will be enjoyed in the restaurant itself. But Papa Murphy's Holdings Inc. (FRSH) has presented the concept of Take 'N' Bake. Papa Murphy’s unique business model creates a niche in this pizza industry.

  • Pioneer Natural Resources Looks Like a Good Buy

    Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) delivered a solid performance in the recently reported fourth quarter. The company is now well positioned for a better performance in 2015.

However, it is undertaking many initiatives such as cost reduction to be still profitable in the soft pricing environment. Let us have a detailed look.

  • Royce Funds Commentary – Signs of a Normalizing Market

    In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the Fed's monetary stimulus programs had the unintended effect of suspending the historically typical functioning of capital markets in terms of the productive and destructive uses of capital. Today, the fiscal climate is beginning to change. President and co-Chief Investment Officer Chris Clark takes a look at what's happening in the current market and talks about why our discipline could be rewarded in the foreseeable future.

    Strange things happen every day in the capital markets. Consider the recent fortunes for the 10-year Treasury, which hit a low of 1.68% on 1/30/15. (It reached an all-time low of 1.38% on 7/24/12.) Its yield then rose to 2.13% on 2/20/15 – a nearly 27% increase in yield in three weeks. (The rate finished February at 2.00%, remaining volatile through the rest of that month.)

  • Pioneer Natural Resources Will Continue To Move Higher

    After suffering due to an oil slump in the second half of 2015, Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) has started well in 2015. Year-to-date, the stock has moved higher by 9.9% and I believe that there is more potential in the rally for the stock. This article discusses some positive related to the company that makes me bullish on the stock for 2015. Even for the long-term, Pioneer Natural Resources is a good stock to gradually accumulate amidst the depression in the energy sector.

    Before taking about the positives, I must first mention here that a potential nuclear deal with Iran and subsequent lifting of sanctions against the country can flood the market with oil supply. Therefore, investors need to remain cautious and watch for the outcome of the nuclear deal before considering big exposure to any energy stock.

    The stock market has been gorging on gains over the last six years and the big question is are we ready for a crash diet? In other words, have we consumed too much, too fast? Since the lows of 2009 the S&P 500 index has more than tripled (or +209% without dividends).

    In our daily food diets our proteins of choice are primarily chicken and beef. When it comes to finances, our investment choices are primarily stocks and bonds. There are many factors that can play into a meat-eaters purchase decision, including the all-important factor of price. When the price of beef spikes, guess what? Consumers rationally vote with their wallets and start substituting beef for relatively lower priced chicken options.

  • Chesapeake Energy: Maintain Positive View After Revised Spending Plan

    Chesapeake Energy (CHK) announced a revised spending and capital expenditure plan for 2015 on March 23 and I maintain my positive view on the stock after the announcement. This article discusses some of the key highlights of the plan and the reasons to remain bullish on the stock.

    From a previous guidance of $4.0 to $4.5 billion, Chesapeake Energy has revised the capital expenditure plan to $3.5 to $4.0 billion. After adjusting for 2014 asset sales, the revised capital expenditure plan would result in production growth of 1% to 3% for 2015. Considering the point that oil prices remain weak, the production growth target can still be considered to be good. Even if Chesapeake Energy clocks the same production as FY14, I believe that the overall performance can be considered as strong for the year. Therefore, moderate production growth for FY15 even after a revision in capital expenditure is the first reason to be positive on Chesapeake Energy.

    American aero major Boeing’s (BA) 757 model has attracted huge attention in recent times as airlines across the globe are pushing the plane maker to build a 757 replacement. The popular aircraft went out-of-production a decade ago as Boeing didn’t see enough demand to sustain its production line. Back then Boeing couldn’t have imagined that years later it would be pressed by carriers to build a replacement, thanks to the 757’s uniqueness – narrow-body long-range aircraft thanks to its immensely powerful engines. Now airlines and lease companies such as United Continental (UAL) and Air Lease Corp. (AL) are again very keen on having a plane that could fly the 757 routes. Here’s a lowdown on what’s going on.
