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).

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...

Will This Pricey Travel Agent Outgrow Its Competition?
In the highly fragmented travel market, having the reputation of a reliable agent with attractively priced and popular products, can put you ahead of the industry competition. Ctrip.com International Ltd. (CTRP) is one of these cases, offering its travel service in the Chinese market. Over the past decade, this company has served as a consolidator for hotel reservations and air ticketing transactions, apart from offering package tours and corporate travel. Several investment gurus, including Steven Cohen (Trades, Portfolio) and Louis Moore Bacon (Trades, Portfolio), have recently acquired this firm’s stock shares, possibly looking for a long term profit generator.

If a stock name sounds more like spy code, is difficult to read and even harder to say, you may be in the mysterious dimension of exchange traded funds where those who know know and those who don’t never will. The typical lack of information about exchange traded funds does not deter the billionaire investors from buying these shares. In fact, Guru Ray Dalio holds more than 80 million shares of EEM, comprising 27.3%% of his total managed assets. More...

Carl Icahn Enters Confidentiality Agreement with Dell and GE's Immelt Plans to Return $18 Billion to Shareholders
U.S. markets will look to continue their march into new record territory after the terrific week they had last week, in which I believe it didn’t have a down day. I believe varket valuations are a bit rich, but that doesn’t mean we will have a correction anytime soon (see: Everyone Is Making Money but You). Based on a historical ratio of market cap to GDP, we are modestly overvalued and are expected to return 3.1%. More...
