  • This Driller Looks Like A Diamond In The Rough [View article]
    Safety regulations have been revamped since the Macondo incident, but the reason for deepwater drilling is more fundamental. Oil companies are looking to offshore sources for oil because the opportunities on shore are becoming more rare and more difficult to extract. Older wells are in decline and the industry as a whole is looking to deepwater drilling as the best option for oil discovery.

  • Too Early To Buy The Hype Of New Zynga CEO [View article]
    I would argue the bigger challenge for Zynga is addressing the product issue than the management issue, and they need to play some catch-up... Every survey trying to determine what pushes Candy Crush gamers from slightly addicted to borderline obsessive arrives at the social competition aspect of it. That's bad news for a game developer that rode Facebook's coattails and then lost those privileges! (http://bbc.in/13qLDbW, http://bit.ly/13qLAwE)

  • Is China The Elephant In The Room Behind Rising U.S. Interest Rates? [View article]
    Yes, would not be surprised if more EUR-denominated diversification was in fact the case. China reserves are over 70%-USD based.

    Regardless of how far off the Fed's exit is, ECB is on hold for longer. It helps that the peripheral spreads have come in as well.

  • Hedge Funds Are Buying 5 Highly Shorted And Oversold Stocks On Losing Streaks [View article]
    Hi there. Apologies for the delay, we just noticed your comments (as pointed out by infinitewisdumb below).

    In response to your question, we use institutional data from Fidelity, which calculates changes made in the current quarter. Most recent filings are from 3/31/13. http://bit.ly/1769M96 and compare it to share float from Yahoo! Finance http://yhoo.it/15bmWhH

    As you pointed our below, the data has changed since this posting. XIDE would no longer signal significant institutional buying: Net institutional purchases in the current quarter is now at 495.6k shares, which represents about 0.71% of the company's float of 68.92M shares. Current quarter purchases increased by 1 million, but was offset by 4.2M in institutional sales.

    And to answer your other question, that particular EPS data point was sourced from Finviz. http://bit.ly/1769MpP

    We hope that helps!

  • Holding Steady: AUER's Growth Strategy Not For The Weak [View article]
    You make interesting points, and I can't disagree, but what I (the author) found really interesting about AUER is how well their strategy has performed over the long term. Certainly it hasn't performed well since inception, but strategy was used in their personal accounts prior to the fund's inception and they've fared quite well from it. In the unabridged version of the article I try to address that. Here's that excerpt:

    Historic Ups and Downs
    While the AUER Growth fund is just over three years old, the Auer strategy hasn’t changed in over 20. It has outperformed the S&P 500 during all 10-year periods prior to inception (pre fund launch).
    Interestingly, the fund (and therefore strategy) has taken a dive since inception. But Bob isn’t worried “This has happened before,” he says pointing to 1998 and 1999 when his strategy net -17.56% and 18.62% returns relative to the S&P’s 28.58% and 21.04% returns. “Look what happens next.” Touché. In the following three years while the S&P had negative returns, AUER grew by 26.78%, 52.05% and 15.67%. After that, 154.56%.
