Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia: Unfavorable Trends Make Her A Sell
- Time Use Survey of American's time spent on both interior and exterior repair, maintenance and decoration has been in decline the last 10 years now.
- Martha Stewart's very rightly named company and magazine, "Living," is becoming less a part of American culture..
- Martha Stewart brand and products are of the highest quality in my judgment, but they have not translated into higher profits..
- Tremendous competition from this easy to enter business model of providing content that simply improves peoples lives is simply abundant on the internet.
- Unfavorable trends make Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia turnaround odds unlikely and that makes the stock a sell in my opinion.
Martin Armstrong Warns Oil To Retest $35-$31 Level
- Economist and forecaster, Martin Armstrong, warns crude oil is in the grips of a massive deflationary cycle.
- Armstrong warned to get out of Gold at the end of 2012, for it was the 13th year in a row it closed higher.
- This deflationary cycle is part of what he calls "Big Bang," which will be the meltdown of the sovereign debt markets that will begin 2015.75 (Oct. 1st, 2015).
Cree: Improving The Economy For All - But Needs To Improve On Quality And Cashflow
- Households can save on average up to $165 a year in electricity by converting from incandescent light bulbs to LED light bulbs.
- Cree's LED light bulbs help put American household economies on solid rock foundation.
- Some quality and cashflow concerns at Cree give reason for patience on buying shares.
- Cree's LED bulbs, however, I still believe to be terrific investments.
Oil Price Collapse Justified: Some Reasons Why
- World aggregate energy production and consumption per capita has been soaring since 2004.
- It is around 2004 when the price of oil began to soar.
- The all powerful invisible hand of economics has been displacing oil with mostly coal and natural gas.
- The world still runs on oil as it is still the leading energy source in the world.
Do-It-Yourself Home Improvement - Can We Afford It?
- Time use survey of time spent on home improvement is in decline.
- Consumer spending survey also suggests spending as a percent of gross income on home maintenance is in decline.
- I sympathize with the idea that it's becoming more and more unaffordable for Americans to do home repairs.
- Home improvement retailers are reinventing selves and adapting to new environment.
- Investors should have low expectations for continued strong rebound in home improvement due to lack of affordability.
Home Depot: Expecting A Substantial Pullback
- Home Depot has become a glorified dollar store in terms of the quality of the goods it now sells, turning away customers like myself.
- Home Depot has become addicted to share buybacks, compromising the soundness of its balance sheet.
- Home Depot's share price has reached bubble like valuation levels that are primed to pop.
GrubHub: Share Lock-Up Expires October 1, More Shares Un-Lock November 24
- From initial IPO on April 3rd, 2014, 70,980,172 shares of 78,385,786 were restricted from sale until 181 days after date of prospectus, October 1st, 2014.
- After the follow on offering on August 25th, 2014, the lock-up on Approx. 52 million shares moved out to November 24th.
- Based on my opinion of valuation concern, coupled with lock-up expirations, I expect a pullback in Grubhub shares in the coming weeks and months ahead .
GrubHub: Potential Remaining 40% Decline
- First-quarter results prove strong growth momentum, but shares overpriced and prone for a pullback.
- On October 1st, 2014, up to 70,980,172 shares become unlocked and eligible for sale out of a total of approximately 77,635,000 shares opening up a potential wave of heavy selling.
- Business model is open to potentially fierce competition as local entrepreneurs enter the business of online food order and delivery services.
- Going public may have been to gain exposure to liquid market for initial investors to cash out.
Profiting From America's TV-Watching Obsession
- As Americans work less, they are watching more television and/or streaming video with their freed-up time.
- With more time devoted by Americans to television watching and/or streaming video, companies that deliver content stand to continue to profit handsomely.
- Competition amongst content providers, however, will be fierce.
Price Cuts At Cree: Expect Bulb Sales To Soar
- Cree LED bulb has become the best-selling LED bulb in America and that trend is set to continue.
- Economics of LED light bulbs remain superior to all others.
