Plus, positive and negative fundamentals to watch

In the short term, stock prices may be driven by the events of the day, chaotic as they may be. But, in the long term, it’s all about the fundamentals, particularly growth in earnings — or lack thereof.

Thus, Ian Wyatt took a close look at financial projections and valuations in chapter 5 of his book, “The Small-Cap Investor: Secrets to Winning Big With Small-Cap Stocks.”

The most common source of financial projections is the management guidance offered in quarterly and annual reporting. The advantage of this source is that management knows more about the company than anyone else and

Slowing growth, negative traffic trends and political correctness may hurt company

Starbucks (SBUX) has been trading sideways for almost two years now. Although the company has reported decent growth, its high valuation has prevented it from heading higher. With Starbucks’ growth slowing down, investors are more wary about buying the stock at current levels as it is trading at more than 28 times trailing earnings.

Although Starbucks’ earnings have improved, they haven’t improved at a decent enough speed to make its valuation more reasonable as Starbucks is trading near its historic valuation. As a result, Starbucks has been an underperformer as the market has been making new highs. Going forward, I

What does it mean to invest in what you know, and is this conventional wisdom good advice for individual investors?

Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio) has famously said to invest in what you know. This line of thinking is what many have attributed to his foresight to stay out of the internet bubble in the late 1990s.

Likewise, Peter Lynch is known for having an almost identical mindset. He said, “The best way to invest is to look at companies competing in the field where you work.”

With prices based more in reality than potential, now could be a good time to look at these stocks

More than a decade ago, most diners had two options when it came to going out. A fast food meal, with low prices but equally low-quality food, was one option. The other was a more formal sit-down place, where the food was decent but the time and money involved in getting a meal was prohibitive.

To fill the void, so-called “fast casual” dining exploded in popularity and increased 550% since 1999. Places like Panera (PNRA), Chipotle (CMG) and others grew remarkably faster than any other segment of the food service industry. Traditional fast food, like McDonald’s

Market share of traditional restaurants has fallen over the last ten years

As part of my ongoing research on used equipment, I found that much used restaurant equipment is selling for pennies on the dollar. My thoughts are that this could be a slowdown in the overall economy or that traditional sit down restaurants are giving way to new way of dining out.

To revisit my research, I perused several used equipment auctions sites and found $13,000 ovens going for just a few hundred dollars. These commercial ovens are used in restaurants, hotels, schools and any other place where people dine in mass. Much of this equipment changes hands many times

McDonald’s (MCD) recently reported a mixed bag of results for the second quarter of the year. The company’s business divisions, including the U.S., International Lead Markets, High Growth Markets as well as the Foundation Markets and corporate, witnessed a drop in sales. The results clearly showed that investors will have to wait to see the company’s turnaround in the U.S. The same store sales came in lower than expectations for the quarter in the domestic market, raising doubts about the effectiveness of the company’s promotional effort of All-Day Breakfast and McPick 2.

Attractively valued mid-sized companies for growth or total return

Small and mid-sized companies are often overlooked by many or even most investors. That’s unfortunate because there are many excellent investment opportunities that can be found in these equity classes. However, an argument could be made that between the small and mid-cap equity classes, the best and perhaps less risky investment opportunities are found in mid-caps.

Additionally, just as it is with every other equity class, there are many different types of mid-size companies with each possessing different features and characteristics. For example, the mid-cap universe contains many intriguing growth opportunities. On the other hand, the mid-cap universe also contains

Revenue declined by 5.33% to $6.615 billion from $6.987 billion, but EPS increased to $1.40, up from $1.09 in the year-ago quarter. We must highlight that some revenue lost was caused by currency translation losses, and this phenomenon could increase in the future.

Looking ahead, we expect revenue growth. Performance is improving in the U.S. and China, but some challenges exist

In today's society, a company's social media strategy is as important as ever. You can look at a company's social media profiles and measure a customer's engagement with that company and how the customer responds and interacts with the content. These metrics can be useful when researching a company whose stock you want to buy.

Every company tackles social media in their own way. Some focus their efforts on one social network, while others may go wide on multiple social networks. When comparing two similar companies such as Panera Bread (PNRA) and Starbucks (SBUX), the company's social media and its
