  • This Iconic Retailer Could be Ready for a Comeback

    L Brands, Inc. (NYSE:LB) is the name, but we’re much more likely to know its starring segment: Victoria’s Secret. Anyone who’s spent time in a shopping mall is likely to recognize the other segments in LB’s operations: PINK (a component of Victoria’s Secret), Bath & Body Works, La Senza (another intimate apparel retailer), and Henri Bendel, a small retailer of handbags, jewelry, and accessories

    The company has had a sterling growth record since its founding more than 50 years ago, but internal restructuring and weak earnings guidance early this year sent its share price tumbling down, as we see in this 3 year chart:

  • Why Facebook Can Still Continue Growing

    Despite Facebook’s (NASDAQ:FB) massive $360 billion+ market cap, the company has been growing its revenue at a strong pace. The revenue growth has reflected in the stock price as Facebook has been moving higher for the past two years. In the past nine out of ten quarters, Facebook managed to surpass earnings as well as revenue estimates, that too with a great margin. In Q2FY16, the company reported earnings per share of $0.97, $0.15 better than the estimates, whereas its revenue came in at $6.44 billion, $420 million greater than the estimates.

    Facebook’s strong quarterly results clearly suggest that it has a robust business model. Currently, the company is putting in a lot of efforts to improve its Artificial Intelligence as this segment builds tools for image recognition, natural language processing, speech recognition, real-time transition as well as other AI-based jobs.

  • Here’s Why Sirius XM Is Still a Great Stock

    Sirius XM (NASDAQ:SIRI) performed very well in 2015, and the company is still witnessing strong growth. In the last reported quarter, the company shared record revenue of $1.2 billion, a surge of 10 percent. This was mainly due to the 3 percent surge in record average revenue per user which reached to $12.78. On the other hand, free cash flow escalated to $395 million.

    Furthermore, the company now anticipates adding approximately 1.7 million overall net new subscribers, 0.1 million greater than the previous guidance of 1.6 million.

  • The Dangers of Dividend Obsession

    “This is a very bad, incoherent piece.” I received this feedback from a reader concerning my most recent article for Institutional Investor . I don’t expect everyone to agree with me, and I welcome negative feedback because it provides an opportunity to learn. But this stung. If this comment had been about almost any other article I’ve written this year, I’d probably have filed it under “let’s agree to disagree.” Looking back, however, I’m not sure this reader was wrong. While I stand by my original thesis, I think I could have made my case more clearly. So here is what I meant to say:

  • Hell or High Water

    You might not think a movie about robbing banks illuminates some of the fundamentals of value investing, but then again, you might not have seen Hell or High Water. The movie tells the story of two brothers who traveled around rural Texas robbing small town banks early in the morning to keep their family property out of foreclosure. It's not about the intricacies of their heist, it's the simplicity of the smaller banks they robbed. It's only when they got greedy, going after a bigger bank, that they got caught.

    We think of Charlie Munger (Trades, Portfolio), the Vice-Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, who taught us that "competition is the enemy of competence." You see, while the brothers successfully found no competition in the smaller rural banks, they ran into trouble when attempting to rob a busy bank later in the day with customers who all had their own guns. They had lost their gun-powered moat.

  • Bill Miller: Valeant Can Double In 3 Years

  • Trying to time the market will only hurt your investment returns

    Trying to time the market is a dangerous and risky business; it’s more likely to end up costing you money than helping you earn it. Unfortunately, this fact doesn’t stop many investors, both institutional and private, from engaging in market timing.

    Academic research has shown many times that market timing is the cause of the average investor’s underperformance. Trying to jump in and out of the market at exactly the right time can cost investors many percentage points of returns, which over the long-term add up to tens of thousands of dollars in lost returns.

  • Was the Q3 Comps Dip Truly an Anomaly for Starbucks?

    Starbucks, possibly the best premium coffee house chain there is, hasn’t done too well this year. During the third quarter the company reported less than 5% comps in the United States, the worst growth in several years, and the stock has been under pressure ever since, losing ten percent of its value since the start of this year.

    Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, called the last quarter an anomaly because the last time Starbucks same store sales in the U.S. dipped below 5% was nearly 25 quarters or 6 years ago. Despite having a significant number of stores in the country, which kept steadily increasing over the years, Starbucks was always able to keep its same store sales numbers moving.
