Co-CIO Francis Gannon highlights some surprising pockets of small-caps earnings strengths

A stream of economic data in recent weeks has pointed to signs of a sawtooth pattern rebound in the labor market, the manufacturing sector, retail sales, and consumer spending. Optimism that the U.S. may be on its way to an economic recovery has helped the broader market to hit fresh new highs in August.

Lost in the optimism of the equity markets and the uncertainty of the economic headlines is the reality of

Stocks are trading below Peter Lynch value

Despite housing starts dropping in February, lower mortgage rates are giving the housing market a rosier outlook.

Reuters reported that the Commerce Department recorded an 8.7% decrease in housing starts to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.162 million units, the largest percent decline in eight months as a result, in part, of bad weather. Construction of single-family homes tumbled to a one-and-a-half-year low. Building permits also fell 1.6% to a rate of 1.296 million units.

While homebuilders bear the brunt of the impact from changes in the housing market, the companies that provide the necessary

Buying high yielding stocks is not a one way strategy to high returns. In addition to high returns, the valuation should be fair.

03/09/10 Gaithersburg, Maryland – The lowly cockroach has a tough chin. It’s survived all kinds of shocks over the years. Jungles gave way to deserts. Flatlands succumbed to urban habitats. Predators came and went over many millennia. Yet there the cockroach stood, undaunted upon its six spindly legs. Investors could learn a few things from the cockroach. For one, the cockroach teaches a great lesson in survival.
