Wednesday Value Overview
Stocks started the day flying high, and trimmed much of those gains by the end. After the close Moody’s (MCO) warned that it may downgrade the U.S. It seems clear that they will if an agreement isn’t reached. Futures are down big. In response to that, I link to more QE3 talk, potential options on how to play the impasse, a look at the News Corp (NWS) scandal, and a coming Amazon (AMZN) tablet, which should threaten Barnes & Noble (BKS) and even, just maybe, Apple (AAPL).

Lockheed: A Buy According to Absolute and Relative Valuation Models
Lockheed Martin Corporation (LMT), a $50.37 billion market cap company that is the world's largest military weapons manufacturer, has a P/E ratio that indicates that the stock is relatively undervalued (16.5x vs 22.1x of industry mean). So in this article, let's take a look at a model which is applicable to stable, mature, dividend-paying firms and try to find the intrinsic value of the stock. Although the model has a number of characteristics that make it useful and appropriate for many applications, is by no means the be-all and end-all for valuation. The purpose is to force investors to evaluate different assumptions about growth and future prospects. More...

James Barrow’s Silent Offshore Oil & Gas Pick
Sometimes it seems as if companies do everything within their power not to make the news. The case can be made for many businesses involved with environmental disasters, management corruption, or plain poor overall performance. Noble (NE) fits, however, in neither category. Most surprisingly, James Barrow (Trades, Portfolio) increased his share in the company after deciding to give the energy sector a bigger piece of his portfolio. Louis Moore Bacon (Trades, Portfolio) is another guru who sees prospects for growth in the firm and followed suit increasing his share. Richard Perry (Trades, More...

Uranium: No Explosive Gains, but It’s Worth Going Nuclear
The global energy market will need to expand, there’s no doubt about that. In a context in which fossil fuels are each day becoming scarcer, nuclear energy is increasingly appearing as a new alternative for many economies. Meanwhile, in the same way as oil and gas reserves are constantly being reduced, the world is also running out of uranium. Summing things up — an augmenting demand for uranium combined with a shrinking supply — the price of uranium should (ceteris paribus) go up. More...
