  • Ford and General Motors: Two Ways to Skin a Cat

    Both GM (NYSE:GM) and Ford (NYSE:F) are extremely reliant on the U.S. market for their sales numbers and bottom-line profitability because, outside U.S., they have neither the numbers nor the profitability to support their respective companies

    During the second quarter, GM’s North America unit posted an operating income before taxes of $3.647 billion, and the group’s total operating income before taxes, which includes all regions, came in at $3.721 billion. It would be an understatement to say that they are dependent on the U.S. market, it’s very much their bread and butter, not to mention the plate they’re eating out of!

  • Alphabet Inc (GOOG) CEO Lawrence Page Sold $24.9 million of Stocks

  • Eldorado: the stock is set to rally as soon as the Turkish dust will settle

    Investors see Eldorado Gold Corp (NYSE:EGO) as a cheap gold stock in terms of price to book value, when compared to its peers and even being undervalued by the stock market when its balance sheet is under scrutiny and its pipeline of growth projects is taken into account.

  • David Einhorn Replaces Michael Kors, Time Warner With Consol Energy, AerCap in Top 5

    David Einhorn (Trades, Portfolio) demoted Michael Kors (NYSE:KORS) and Time Warner (NYSE:TWC) from the top five positions in his portfolio during the second quarter, favoring AerCap Holdings (NYSE:AER) and Consol Energy (NYSE:CNX).

No details about the positions will be reported until Einhorn discloses his second-quarter portfolio in the next few weeks.


  • Is Sprint’s 1st-Quarter Performance Repeatable?

    Sprint’s (NYSE:S) stock skyrocketed to above $6 after the company posted better-than-expected results and recorded its fourth straight quarter of growth in its postpaid phone base. It took almost two years for Sprint to get above the $6 level so this is indeed good news for its investors.

    I have been skeptical about Sprint’s fortunes, as the U.S. market is approaching peak penetration in smartphone growth; and I covered that in detail in my article "Sprint Running Out of Steam as Market Nears Peak Penetration."

  • UPS: The Metric to Watch

  • Hyundai Reports 10th Consecutive Quarterly Profit Drop

    Heading into 2012, Hyundai Motor Co. (XKRX:005380) was the fifth-largest carmaker in the world based on sales, but circumstances have shifted, and the South Korean company reported its 10th consecutive quarterly profit drop Tuesday.

    Even though Hyundai’s sales were up in China with the introduction of new models in the market, weak demand for sedans and higher marketing costs for Hyundai’s luxury brand were blamed for the decline. Domestic sales were up, but lower sales overseas offset those gains.

  • Phillips 66: Value & Yield on an Overpriced Market

    Reasonably safe stocks yielding 3%+ are becoming difficult to find as the market’s price-to-earnings ratio marches ever higher.

    The S&P 500 currently has a price-to-earnings ratio of 25.1 and a dividend yield of 2.1%. Historical averages for these numbers are 15.6 and 4.4%, respectively (yields are down not only due to valuation but also because of the increased prevalence of share repurchases).
