  • Scoop Up First Solar On The Irrational Pullback

    When it comes to profitability in the solar sector, First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) has the best track record. However, that track record did not stop shares of First Solar from tanking when the company reported its latest quarterly results.

    In the latest reported quarter, First Solar shared EPS of $1.66, thumping the analysts’ estimates by $0.73. On the revenue front, First Solar’s reported roughly 81% sales growth on a year over year basis to $848 million, falling short of the analysts’ estimate by $118 million. First Solar also adjusted its EPS guidance and now expects 2016 EPS of $4.10-$4.50 as compared to the prior guidance of $4.00-$4.50. The consensus of $4.30 falls exactly in the middle of the guidance range.


  • Should You Follow Warren Buffett And Buy Apple?

    Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s Berkshire Hathaway bought a billion dollar stake in Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) after the stock tanked in response to the post-earnings debacle. Since Buffett’s stake was disclosed, Apple has jumped almost 10% and has moved over $100.

    The recovery in Apple’s stock has been terrific considering that it moved below $90 for a small amount of time. That being said, I don’t think investors should follow Buffett just yet as Apple may pullback more and here’s why.

  • Choose Your Weapon - John Hussman

    Prevailing market conditions continue to hold the expected stock market return/risk profile in the most negative classification we identify. That profile reflects not only extreme valuations on the most reliable measures we’ve tested across history, but market internals and other features of market action that remain unfavorable. A sufficient improvement in market internals here would shift the expected market return/risk profile to a more neutral classification. That, coupled with a broader improvement in economic factors, mirroring conditions that prevailed during much of this half-cycle prior to mid-2014, could support an outlook - even at presently obscene valuations - that we might characterize as “constructive with a safety-net.” So while our immediate outlook is quite negative, we’ll take new evidence as it comes.

    In any event, looking beyond the near-term horizon, I doubt that any shift in market action will meaningfully reduce the likelihood of a 40-55% loss in the S&P 500 over the completion of the current market cycle, nor the likelihood of 0-2% total returns for the S&P 500 on a 10-12 year horizon; both which imply that we fully expect the S&P 500 Index itself to be below present levels 10-12 years from today. Put simply, long-term investment outcomes are tightly linked to valuations, but near-term market outcomes are linked to investor attitudes toward risk-seeking and risk-aversion, which are best inferred from the uniformity of market internals across individual securities, industries, sectors, and security-types, including debt securities of varying creditworthiness.

  • Wal-Mart Q1 2016 Results Lift Investors Mood

    Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) posted incredible first quarter sales numbers with shares surging more than 9% and numbers beating analysts’ expectations. Earnings per shares for the first quarter were $0.98 against analyst estimate of $0.88. This is higher than the discount retailer own EPS guidance of $0.80 to $0.95. Wal-Mart provided the customers with better shopping experience. Higher drug prices and strong demand for apparels bolstered the company’s sales. Same-store sales for the company surged 1% in the quarter, indicating 7 successive quarter of sales hike. Favourable pricing, selection and fully stocked shelves powered the Q1 sales of Wal-Mart in the grocery section.

  • What Investors Need to Know About Target Corp. Q1 2016 Results

    Target Corp. (NYSE:TGT) posted its first quarter results recently and gave a cautious outlook on the back of increasing customer volatility. This impacted the company shares that fell as much as 11%, which is the retailer’s steepest intra-day decline in more than seven years. Target’s first quarter sales remained unimpressive, falling short of analyst expectations. Unseasonable weather and soft demand for electronics and groceries led to poor sales numbers.

    The company’s dismal numbers and weak outlook worried investors to the extent that they sold shares of other retailers including Wal-Mart Stores (NYSE:WMT), Macy's (NYSE:M), JC Penney (NYSE:JCP). Here’s a look at some key numbers and what to expect going forward.

  • Growing Generic Drug Market a Good Opportuity for 2 India Firms

    Given the growing market share for generic drugs, patient investors might want to consider two Indian pharmaceutical firms that are among the 10 largest generic drug companies in the U.S. -- Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd. (RDY) and Lupin Limited (NSE:LUPIN.NS).

    Although regulatory and currency issues have had a dramatic impact on the two Indian companies’ share prices, they are well positioned to capitalize on the burgeoning market for copies of brand-name drugs. In the U.S. alone, the generic drugs market was $66 billion in 2015, with several more familiar names among the leading providers, including Teva Pharmaceutical Industries (TEVA), Mylan N.V. (MYL) and the Sandoz unit of Novartis AG (NV).
