  • Good Companies Don’t Always Make Good Stocks

    I was recently going through a new client’s portfolio and found it full of the likes of Coca-Cola, Kimberly-Clark and Campbell Soup — what I call (pseudo) bond substitutes. Each one is a stable and mature company. Your mother-in-law would be proud if you worked for any one of them. They have had a fabulous past; they’ve grown revenues and earnings for decades. They were in their glory days when most baby boomers were coming of age. But the days of growth are in the rearview mirror for these companies — their markets are mature, and the market share of competitors is high. They can innovate all day long, but consumers will not be drinking more fizzy liquids, wearing more diapers or eating more canned soup.

    If you were to look at these companies’ financial statements, you’d be seriously underimpressed. They paint a stereotypical picture of corporate old age. Their revenues haven’t grown in years and in many cases have declined. Some of them were able to squeeze slightly higher earnings from stagnating revenue through cost-cutting, but that strategy has its limits — you can only squeeze so much water out of rocks (unless someone like 3G Capital takes the company, sells its fleet of corporate jets and starts mercilessly slashing expenses like the private equity firm did at Budweiser and Heinz). These businesses will be around ten years from now, but their profitability probably won’t be very different from its current level (not much higher, but probably not much lower either).

Newmont’s third-quarter EPS missed analysts' expectations with a 24.00% surprise.


  • The Plumbing of Investing

    A question from a reader on my recent post Me Too!:


  • $44 Million You Didn't Know You Were Missing

    Did you inherit some Sara Lee or Consolidated Foods shares? You may be leaving up to $44.97 million on the table. The Dutch version of the Financial Times: Het Fiancieele Dagblad recently reported a curious story that needs attention in the U.S. If you have some Sara Lee shares in an account that may not be traced or tracked to you easily by 3rd parties and or have a number of paper certificates lying around in the attic that look like these:

  • The Feedback Loop Between Dollar and Yuan

    Every market cycle has one to two macro drivers at the heart of its regime. We call these the fulcrum points. Keep an eye on the fulcrum and you will know when a major cyclic turn is underfoot.

    The fulcrum point for the current cycle is without a doubt the U.S. dollar (UUP). The dollar is sitting on top of a $9-$11 trillion powder keg of foreign carry trades — essentially short-dollar positions. And the torch that is likely to set off this powder keg of deflation is the Chinese yuan (FXI).


  • Vail Resorts: Good to Buy

    Vail Resorts Inc. (NYSE:MTN) is a premiere mountain resort company and a leader in luxury, destination-based travel at iconic locations. The company operates in three segments: Mountain, Lodging and Real Estate Development. The Mountain segment owns and operates 11 premiere resorts in Colorado, the Lake Tahoe area of California and Nevada, Utah,  Minnesota and Michigan. The Real Estate segment, Vail Resorts Development Company, holds, develops, buys and sells real estate in and around its resort communities.

    Vail Resorts Hospitality owns and manages a portfolio of luxury hotels under the RockResorts brand, a number of hotels and condominiums located in proximity to their ski resorts, three destination resorts at Grand Teton National Park and several award-winning golf courses.


  • T-Mobile Reports Strong 3rd Quarter

    T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) released its third quarter fiscal 2016 results where it managed to make new customer additions at the cost of its larger rivals, Verizon (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T (NYSE:T). The company achieved this by lowering prices without compromising on the profits. The numbers for the quarter reflect how T-Mobile has found an effective way of expanding its customer base while growing its bottom line. The Bellevue-based telecom player reported earnings that surpassed analysts’ expectations. The company’s adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) increased to $2.6 billion against analysts’ estimate of $2.4 billion.

    T-Mobile’s focus on customers is earning rewards for the company in the form of strong customer addition while rival players lose them. Here’s a closer look at the third-largest American telecom player’s quarterly statistics.


  • Buy Home Depot While Market Sentiment Is Down

    Home Depot (NYSE:HD), the largest home improvement store in terms of size and market capitalization, has given up all the gains it made this year. The stock is up 0.67% on a year to date basis, and the decline has been steady since it hit a 52-week high of $139 in August.

    The story is eerily similar to what auto stocks went through around the same time last year - declining rapidly due to expectations that the segment has peaked, and then heading down for several months before starting to move sideways. Though auto sales have remained resilient since that time, the fact that they were unable to either exceed the peak numbers or stay very close to them was enough to damage sentiment, which affected the valuation of the entire industry.
