  • PepsiCo: A Refreshing Choice for Value, Growth and Income [View article]
    This is even more amazing when you consider that the PE ratio for PepsiCo on 12/31/1999 was over 30; one of its historically higher valuations. The question is: How much better can shareholders fare by investing at today’s historically low valuations?"

    This is a very well put together article that I much appreciate and would like to thank you for. As I have been researching PEP this is just a great addition to my research thank you.

  • Using Options to Play Market Correction [View article]
    "Using current market data, I could fetch $335 per option contract. If I wrote these shares out for 200 I would protect my position in Apple by 1.7% but I would also be obligated to sell Apple if the stock rose and closed above 200 per share on February 19, 2010 (February options expiration)."

    Nice move on this one Marco, I have done the same. Keep up the good work.

  • Why the Market Shouldn't Ignore Chubb [View article]
    "For investors who use options, Chubb's relatively low implied volatility and dividend create a situations where in the money LEAPS are moderately priced and can be used to provide a combination of leverage and clearly defined downside exposure."

    I have used this strategy and i like this company for it. I would recommend it for anyone. Thank you for your research.

  • Why We're Still Bullish on Emerging Markets [View article]
    "The most important factor supporting equity emerging markets are the expectations that economic growth is likely to be robust both in 2010 and 2011. For instance, in the World Economic Outlook Update released over the last week, the IMF raised its estimate for GDP growth in emerging and developing economies compared to 2009 WEO projections, from 5.1% to 6% in 2010 and from 6.1% to 6.3% in 2011."

    This is great research and very valuable. I am particularly fond of EEM and continue to follow them. Thank you for your excellent research.

  • The Case for Barrick Gold [View article]
    "I believe that at current price levels, Barrick shares represent a good value. There are reasonable arguments in support of gold’s long-term prospects, particularly because of potentially increased demand from emerging nations."

    Good thoughts here. I see very healthy technicals for Barrick, thank you for the support.

  • Why Soros Is Probably Buying Gold Now [View article]
    "Soros is playing his own book in Davos. Gold investors should not be alarmed but take some delight in what he is saying."

    I love this statement...it is funny how often the influential say something different in what they intend because they know their words will have influence on the markets. Always looking for the advantage and they know that if they chose their words carefully, it can happen! Great article.

  • Can Investors Trust This Economy? [View article]
    "This means that much of the growth shown in this report came from what is, essentially, a one-time event."

    I am in agreement with you on this one! There will come a time this year or early next year when this "one time" event of numbers will catch up with us and the bears will come out of hibernation! Great article!

  • Money Magazine Still Hates Gold, So Buy It [View article]
    I've learned to go against the so called "experts" in the market just like I have the critics in the movies (AVATAR)...find me one critic said it had a plot worth watching and a billion later...

  • AES Corporation: A Growth Utility? [View article]
    "An investor might take up a starter position, accumulating on the dips, and selling if and when the growth/emerging markets story for this company becomes popular. Entry point would depend on the investor's estimate of current market level and credit trends, as this stock can be expected to under-perform if credit markets experience renewed difficulties. The attraction is, it will likewise outperform if global recovery moves on to a new era."

    I like your strategy! We have one more huge wall to break through at 15.3 & then it can go on for quite awhile. Thank you for your excellent research. Much appreciated!

  • Covered Call Opportunities for February 2010 [View article]
    I really like your suggestion of PAAS. Not only do I agree that Silver should continue upward, but I see PAAS trading in an even tighter consolidation range. Wait fro the right timing & it should be a perfect buy! Thank you for the fine research!
