  • Microsoft Redressing Brand Lumia

    After several companies displaying their firepower over the ongoing smartphone war with launches to redefine the smartness of the smartphone it seems the war is not just limited to fresh launches and more innovative brands but also several remixing are in the making. Indeed for the second half of this year the smartphone world has seen so much activity that consumers are getting confused while making decisions of which one to buy and which one to leave. However while all the mobile phone makers have some way or the other made news in the smartphone section one company which remained out of this smartphone frenzy is Nokia (NOK).

  • John Roger's Ariel Fund Q3 2014 Commentary

    Investing in small- and mid-cap stocks is riskier and more volatile than investing in large-cap stocks. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which the portfolio invests may never be recognized by the broader market. Ariel Fund often invests a significant portion of its assets in companies within the financial services and consumer discretionary sectors and its performance may suffer if these sectors underperform the overall stock market.

    Performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. All performance assumes the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains and represents returns of the Investor Class shares. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted. For the period ended September 30, 2014, the average annual total returns of Ariel Fund (Investor Class) for the 1-, 5- and 10-year periods were +15.52%, +16.46% and +7.18%, respectively.

  • Southern Company a Fairly Valued Stock

    In this article, let´s consider Southern Company (SO), a $42.29 billion market cap, which has a trailing P/E ratio that indicates that the stock is relatively undervalued (PE 18.9x vs Industry Median 20.1x). The obvious question I’m sure you want to know is - what is the future stock price movement? Although, I cannot predict exactly the moment, we can see some drivers of this Atlanta-based energy holding company, which is one of the largest producers of electricity in the U.S.; and then try to analyze it intrinsic value and compare it with the actual trading price.

  • T. Rowe Price Japan Fund Q3 2014 Commentary


    Japanese stocks posted strong gains in local currency terms over the quarter but lost ground in U.S. dollar terms due to a significantly weaker yen. In the first half of the quarter, good corporate earnings and a number of stock buybacks helped support stocks, as did reports that the country's public pension fund may raise its weighting in domestic equities. Later in the period, markets got a more unexpected lift from weaker economic data, which raised expectations of further stimulus and monetary easing and drove the yen significantly lower. Export-oriented stocks, such as automakers and manufacturers of machinery and electric appliances, posted particularly strong gains. The weakest-performing sectors over the quarter included banks, real estate, and financial services excluding banks.
