  • Why Flextronics is A Strong Buy

    A) Introduction

    Flextronics International is a supply chain company that designs, manufactures, ships, and services electronic products for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). We believe the company offers is the rare opportunity in which the stock combines an attractive valuation with strong price momentum and strong company insider buying. Each of these factors is good determinant of future success, and we will outline why as we progress through the analysis. The report will start with a breakdown of Flextronics valuation profile, then will proceed to an analysis of the price and profit growth, followed by an analysis of recent “smart money” transactions, and concluding with some qualitative analysis and conclusions. Flextronics will outperform in 2015 based on its strong combination of value, price momentum, and industry tailwinds.

  • Draghi Provides Markets QE Beer Goggles

    While the financial market party has been gaining momentum in the U.S., Europe has been busy attending an economic funeral. Mario Draghi, the European Central Bank President is trying to reverse the somber deflationary mood, and therefore has sent out $1.1 trillion euros worth of quantitative easing (QE) invitations to investors with the hope of getting the eurozone party started.

    Draghi and the stubborn party-poopers sitting on the sidelines have continually been skeptical of the creative monetary punch-spiking policies initially implemented by U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (and continued by his fellow dovish successor Janet Yellen). With the sluggish deflationary European pity party (see FT chart below) persisting for the last six years, investors are in dire need for a new tool to lighten up the dead party and Draghi has obliged with the solution…“QE beer goggles.” For those not familiar with the term “beer goggles,” these are the vision devices that people put on to make a party more enjoyable with the help of excessive consumption of beer, alcohol, or in this case, QE.

  • Will Google Bounce Back In 2015

    The last quarter of 2014 saw many technology giants fall below expectations of stakeholders. One of the shocking companies in this group was Google (GOOG). Shareholders were indeed surprised to note that the share prices saw a continuous slump towards the latter half of 2014. Earnings also showed a slight dip, which gave room for worry for investors and stakeholders. However, being the superpower it is, Google is expected to bounce back strongly for 2015 as the company is all set to touch a 20% increase in growth rate this year. How well-placed is Google to meet this expectation? Let’s take a closer dig.


  • Probable Gainers Of A European Market Bounce Back

    There is a silver lining at the end of the tunnel for the European economy. If things fall in place, a revival of sorts is in the cards. The Central Bank of Europe is planning to buy back 60 billion Euros worth of European bonds in a bid to develop the economy. This reminds us of the scenario in the US, during the 2008 recession. The US Government had bailed out the economy back then by providing considerable financial support. Taking a cue out of the US, the European Central Bank too, is trying its best to bring back the economy to safer pastures at least, if not greener. The US stock market showed close to 150%growth after the support from the Government. It is expected that the European stock market will also develop at a rapid pace after this move. This brings us back to the big question, who will be the top gainers when and if the European market bounces back? Please read through to know more:
