A global leader in making building materials is selling at a discount

Sometimes, the market makes mistakes. Okay, more often than not, on a long-term basis, it makes a lot of mistakes. With CRH PLC (CRH) it's making a big mistake by continuing to discount the stock. CRH is an Irish manufacturer and distributor of a broad range building materials products and while construction materials remain a fundamental building blocks of our society, CRH is likely to continue growing, despite the short-term hiccup.

'Brexit' was not a crisis. Turkey is not a crisis. When is a crisis a crisis -- and when is it an opportunity?

"Brexit" was not a crisis. Turkey is not a crisis. It could become one, although that would occur based on what is happening since the coup, not the coup itself. (More on this below.)

A crisis, from an investment standpoint, is a series of events that lead to continuing hardship for a large percentage of the population, typically contiguous to or immediately followed by recession (or worse) that continues for some time. A plague, famine, warfare in the homeland, ubiquitous Islamist terrorism - The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse stuff - now those are crises.

In crisis there is always opportunity, and here are 2 ways to profit from what is likely to follow

In a number of discussions with clients and colleagues, I stated my belief that Brexit would carry the day and, indeed, if I were a Brit, that's how I would have voted.

We need to remember that the primary raison d'etre for the formation of what we today call the EU was not based on economic issues but rather security issues. After two world wars tore apart the infrastructure of European nations and left permanent scars upon its populace, those still alive swore they must never again allow their bickering to reach the point of open conflict.

Tom Dugan: So Dana, let’s discuss fixed income markets in the first half of 2015, particularly the factors that influenced returns that bonds generated over this time period. And secondary of interest, particularly among our clientele and other market participants, is interest rates generally as well as the state of credit markets, which have been quite dynamic lately. So how would you characterize fixed income markets over the course of the first half?

Holcim Ltd. (HCMLY) and Lafarge Coppee (LFRGY) have decided to go ahead with their plans of merging to become the world's biggest cement manufacturer, though merger plans were stalled awhile ago. The companies had last-ditch talks as investors did not favor the deal, citing unfavorable financial returns. Both the companies had faced regulatory obstacles, but now that the merger is happening, more management and financial issues are popping up.

Management reshuffle

The main question now is: Who will become the new CEO of the merged company? Rumors are rife that a Lafarge executive will be given the opportunity to fill
