  • A Successful Spin-Off Frees Long-Term Growth

    A recovering world economy placed an additional pressure on energy supply. While the Chinese economy appears to take a breath, North America steps on the accelerator, as Europe continues to look for the ignition. All that activity implies an additional stress on oil and gas supplies. North America has seen a gas boom on which it continues to ride. Also, unconventional reserves are still an important part. On the other hand, fracking remains a relatively new production technique.

    But Europe has not been able to secure its own resources, depending on Russia for gas and Africa and the Middle East for oil. Hence, the greater activities experienced by the industry respond to a greater global demand. ConocoPhillips (COP) is one of the worldwide companies looking to absorb this market synergy. With operations in over 30 countries, the company continues to look for ways to increase reserves and production levels. But, can it reward long-term shareholders at the same time?


  • AstraZeneca: Time to Make a Bet? Steven Cohen Seems to Think It Is

    AstraZeneca PLC (AZN) is a global prescription-based biopharmaceutical company with operations in the UK, continental Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia. Its business focuses on the discovery and development of new products and its manufacturing, marketing and sale. AstraZeneca has managed to build its leading presence in the pharma and biotech industry thanks to patent-protected drugs and a constantly developing pipeline, both of which add up to a wide economic moat. In spite of this, its top and bottom-line have been and are expected to remain under pressure as non-generic and generic competition grows.

    So far the company’s quarterly revenues have fallen 4 percent (at constant exchange rates). Additionally, U.S. health care reforms impacted in revenues and costs by $199 million. Now, on the face of massive patent losses on gastrointestinal drug Nexium in 2014 and cholesterol reducer Crestor in 2016, doubts are raised about the company’s growth prospects. The loss of these products’ exclusivity will impact strongly on margins and could cause an amplified shock on AstraZeneca’s bottom line. The question is, then, how will the company manage to fill those shoes?

  • Pinching Dough – Panera Bread, Others Rise as Disposable Income Shrinks

    American disposable income is shrinking, which means more people will be eating at home. According to Investment Contrarians, “In September 2012, the real disposable income in the U.S. decreased by 0.1%. In August 2012, it declined 0.3%. At the same time, the U.S. personal savings rate is also retreating—down to 3.3% of disposable income in September compared to 3.7% in August.” How does this affect restaurant goers?
