  • This Chip Maker Is a Solid Investment to Profit From Smartphones

    In January, chip creator Synaptics (SYNA) was being scorned on the Street after blended second-quarter results, and was the subject of a downsize by Oppenheimer because of its high valuation. Slice to the present, and Wall Street analysts now anticipate that Synaptics will hit $100 from its present levels of around $60.

Moreover, the center touch business is relied upon to produce EPS of $3.50-$4.00.

  • Capital Markets Reform In China: Gaining Momentum - Mark Mobius

    Reform efforts in China seem to be gaining momentum. The big question is whether these reforms will buoy investor confidence, and jumpstart China’s local A-share market. In November 2013, the Chinese Communist Party convened its Third Plenary Session, resulting in a general blueprint for the country going forward officially called “A Decision on Major Issues Concerning Comprehensive and Far-Reaching Reforms.” There were a variety of areas targeted, including fiscal reform, anti-corruption efforts, and integrated rural-urban development. Since then, the Chinese government has released more detailed reforms plans, and of particular interest to us as investors are those related to the capital markets. I’ve invited my colleague Eddie Chow, senior executive vice president and managing director, Templeton Emerging Markets Group, to share his perspective on these reform efforts and his outlook for China’s equity market.

    The Chinese government, through both the communications during the National Peoples’ Congress in March and more recently in the release of the “Guiding Principles for the Healthy Development of Capital Markets” by the State Council, has put up a detailed agenda for capital market reform. The reform plan is comprehensive and we believe most of the specific reforms initiated are significant for investors. Some of them could have an immediate impact, while some are more structural in nature, rendering potential market impact over a longer-term basis. For example, on the opening up of the capital markets, the Shanghai–Hong Kong Stock Connect Scheme, which increases both inward and outward investment quotas and relaxes foreign shareholder limits in listed companies, could very soon help inject more liquidity into the local China A-share market. Over the medium to longer term, we believe the greater participation of foreign investors may change behaviors and dynamics of the market and even governance at the company level. To improve the structure of the capital markets, in addition to developing the bond market (which itself is essential in helping to determine prices for costs of capital in China), the approval-based stock issuance system in the A-share market will be replaced with a registration-based one. There are also new rules governing initial public offerings (IPOs) published by the Securities Association of China. Additionally, we believe regulators will work to crack down on potential insider trading, enhance information disclosure, improve delisting regime and support pension fund investments. We also believe all these new reform initiatives should help gradually regain interest in China’s A-share market.The goal of these efforts is to make China’s capital markets much more diverse, structured and transparent. This is very important, in our view, as there is a large amount of private savings in China that could be invested. So far, much of the work is being done by the state-owned dominated banking system and of course, the banking system has a lot of limitations.


  • GMO - A Farmland Investment Primer

    Farmland is a real asset that combines solid investment fundamentals with the potential for attractive cash yields, inflation hedging, and consistent returns from biological growth. Furthermore, farmland total returns tend to be uncorrelated with financial asset returns, offering genuine portfolio diversification for institutional investors. While institutional ownership within the asset class has grown steadily over the past few years, it still accounts for less than 1%1 of total global agricultural land ownership, presenting significant opportunity for sustainable yield enhancement through targeted farmland investment in certain regions.

    The pages that follow present an overview of the key characteristics and potential risks of farmland investing, consider the routes for implementation, and make the case for a diversified, cross-regional approach to the asset class.


  • Time To Put A New Economic Tool In The Box

    [E]conomists are at this moment called upon to say how to extricate the free world from the serious threat of accelerating inflation which, it must be admitted, has been brought about by policies which the majority of economists recommended and even urged governments to pursue. We have indeed at the moment little cause for pride: as a profession we have made a mess of things.

    It seems to me that this failure of the economists to guide policy more successfully is closely connected with their propensity to imitate as closely as possible the procedures of the brilliantly successful physical sciences – an attempt which in our field may lead to outright error. It is an approach which has come to be described as the “scientistic” attitude – an attitude which, as I defined it some thirty years ago, “is decidedly unscientific in the true sense of the word, since it involves a mechanical and uncritical application of habits of thought to fields different from those in which they have been formed.


  • The Earnings Report For Lockheed Martin

    While the Lockheed Martin top line remains under pressure, solid segment margin performance continues to outstrip expectations. The company officials said they have increased their earnings-per-share estimates for 2014, 2015 and 2016 by 35 cents, 55 cents and 95 cents, respectively, to $11.25, $11.70 and $12.85, respectively, reflecting the new pension-income outlook. Lockheed Martin's capital deployment was put on temporary hold to evaluate pension implications; however, repurchases are expected to return in the third quarter. Pension income recovery is being reset materially higher over the next few years, which has boosted our EPS estimates. We have also bumped our price target higher, reflecting the higher EPS estimates.

    Lockheed Martin reported a strong second quarter with sales of $11.3 billion and EPS of $2.76 versus Wall Street expectations of $11.1 billion and $2.66, respectively, and our estimate of $11.1 billion and $2.64, respectively. The company raised 2014 EPS guidance to $10.85-$11.15 from $10.50-$10.80 with sales guidance maintained in the range of $41.5 billion-$43.0 billion. The Street is in print for 2014 sales at $44.8 billion and EPS of $10.94, and we are at $44.5 billion and $11.25 (up 35 cents), respectively. Lockheed Martin pension income was increased by $100 million for 2014 to $445 million, and it's expected to hit $900 million (up $250 million) in 2015 and $1.4 billion in 2016. Cash from operations in 2014 is expected to be equal or more than $4.8 billion (up $100 million), which should support continued robust share buybacks and dividends.
