Clear Sailing for Discovery Communications
That the media and cable landscape is changing is admittedly nothing new, with mergers and licensing agreements occurring among industry giants like Time Warner Cable Inc. (TWC), Comcast Corporation (CMCSA) and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc. (FOXA). However, it’s not only the industry giants that are scaling their options to continue gaining profits. The somewhat smaller, niche content pay TV player Discovery Communications (DISCA) has also displayed several changes over the past quarter and they seem to have been successful, as earnings per share saw a solid increase, closing the fiscal year at $2.97, up 25.6% year over year. So with investment gurus like Caxton Associates (Trades, Portfolio) and Louis Moore Bacon (Trades, More...

Why This Franchised System May Not Be Profitable
In the lodging industry, high returns on invested capital are a key market characteristic. However, this market segment also suffers from its vulnerability to economic recessions, which can lead to sharp declines among business and leisure travelers. Marriott International Inc. (MAR) was particularly affected by the last few downturns and is in fact still recovering from the 2008 crisis. Maybe that’s why investment gurus Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio) or Caxton Associates (Trades, Portfolio) recently sold out all their company shares. Nevertheless, not all is gloomy in this company’s future, although profitability may also only arise in the distant future. More...

What is wrong with United Continental Airlines?
The U.S. airline industry is characterized by minimal barriers to entry, rising fuel costs, and hefty competition. Especially in the domestic market, low-cost carriers such as Southwest Airlines Co (LUV) and JetBlue Airways Corporation (JBLU), have put a significant strain on large carriers. United Continental Airlines (UAL) has thus seen competition rise steadily, and as of late, has fallen out of favor with investors. George Soros, Ken Heebner, and Caxton Associates, have turned bearish regarding the company, dumping their entire position over the past months. Let’s take a closer look at United Continental and figure out why the airliner no longer has the support of important investment firms. More...

Home Depot Set to Outperform Amid a Housing Market Recovery
Few large-cap companies can offer above average long-term growth rates. However, there are still a few that can provide this to investors. Home Depot (HD), the world's largest home-improvement retailer, certainly looks like one of these cases, especially as the housing market and prices continue to improve. Although it market cap reaches almost $112 billion, analysts expect it to deliver average annual EPS growth rates around 17% to 18% over the next five years (compared to an industry average of 12% to 13%).

Why This Indian Automaker Is Worth Considering as a Long-Term Investment
When it comes to automobile manufacturing, Tata Motors Ltd. (TTM) is not necessarily the first company that comes to mind. Unlike traditional car makers, such as Toyota Motor Corp. (TM), General Motors Co. (GM) or Volkswagen AG ADR (VLKAY), the Indian firm recently entered the global stage, making it a relative newcomer in the industry. Tata Motors’ acquisitions of Jaguar, Range Rover and Land Rover was the first step towards international expansion, which means it will be competing directly with the previously mentioned vehicle behemoths.
