  • Good Things To Life - Clearly Gull Looks At General Electric's Transformative Transaction

    Last Thursday, General Electric announced that they were selling a $26 billion real estate portfolio and substantially reducing the size of their financing arm, GE Capital.

In addition, they announced a $50 billion stock buyback and another $40 billion in dividends paid out through 2018.

  • The Third and Final Transformation Of Monetary Policy - Market Strategist John Mauldin

    The policy announcements of the US Federal Reserve Board are dissected and analyzed more closely than any other global financial variable. Indeed, during the past thirty years, Fed‐Watching became a veritable industry, with all eyes on the funds rate. Within a few years, this term will rarely appear in print. For the Fed will now be targeting two new variables in place of the funds rate. One result is that forecasting Fed policy will be more demanding.

    To make sense of this observation, a bit of history is in order. During the last nine years, US monetary policy has been transformed in three ways. To date, only the first two have been widely discussed and are now well understood. The third development is only now underway, and is not well understood at all. To review:

  • Ford Plans To Venture Into Russia

    Unlike many auto-giants, Ford Motor Company (F) has been looking to capture and grow in the “burgeoning” Russian market, or at least the company thinks so. Well, when I say burgeoning, I might offend many an industry experts. The analysts are of the view that the company’s move to enter the Russian market would go in vain. This is because the market has not shown much growth for past some years now and the collapsing automotive sales have become a big issue now. Added to that, the strict communist administration makes it even difficult for the foreign companies to grow in the country. In spite of the fact, the Ford Motor Company is optimistic about its foray into Russia. The company officials say that they have confidence in the Russian market.

    Here’s what the CEO of the Ford-Sollers, Ted Cannis had to say about the company’s move, “while in the short term, Russia remains an extremely volatile and challenging market, we believe the market likely has significant potential in the longer term." Ford released the statement today as the automaker started production of its latest-generation Mondeo midsize car at the joint venture's St. Petersburg factory, the first of at least four new models the company plans to launch in Russia this year.

  • Will Lower Oil Prices Drive American Airlines Higher?

    Shares of American Airlines Group (AAL) has appreciated firmly this year, increasing 40% as such. Given the organization's solid money related performance as of late, this barely comes as a shock. The organization has profited because of solid avionics request in the U.S., while a drop in oil prices has lead to a decrease in fuel costs. Actually, American Airlines just reported a record first quarter a week ago.

    For the reported quarter, American Airlines profited from the lofty drop in oil prices and reported net benefit of $1.2 billion, or $1.73 per weakened share on revenues of $9.8 billion. The principle explanation behind the gigantic benefit was because of a 7.1% abatement altogether operating costs to $8.6 billion, basically because of an astounding 42.2% diminishing in the organization's fuel costs.
