  • Petrobras: A Contrarian Opportunity [View article]
    South American politics, huge oil revenue can one think that a small time U.S. citizen investor is going to make any money on that set up. Fat chance.

  • 4 Reasons Why Investors Should Sell Out Of Alcoa Shares Now [View article]
    I'm betting on $20/share by year end; a dynamic CEO stressing value added products at a time when the average car on the road is 11 years old.

  • What's Wrong With Kinder Morgan? [View article]
    I would think that the completion of the LNG site off the coast of Georgia will do wonders for EPB. There is a wonderful future in EPB; endure the current shortfalls.

  • Petrobras May Just Be The Smartest Energy Stock To Invest In [View article]
    Too much government intervention, and mistakes made by the Corporation to have me interested in buying. I was burned once with PBR. No thanks.

  • With the major averages edging towards pricey territory, Andrew Bary of Barron's screens the S&P 500 for stocks trading at single-digit multiples, then narrows the list to those whose prospects can be argued to be good. The names are all familiar ones, but their presence on the list may surprise: VLO, MPC, HPQ, FCX, ESV, PSX, GM, MET, WDC, PRU, APA, JPM, C, DE, AAPL[View news story]
    In this volatile market, I like the idea and the selections.

  • Interest rates are quietly creeping higher, with the 10-year Treasury back to 2.60% after threatening to hit 2.50% a few hours back. Accordingly, the mREIT sector (REM -1.2%) begins to relinquish some its big gains from yesterday. Leading on the downside are American Capital (AGNC -3.5%), Annaly (NLY -2.3%), Armour (ARR -2.3%), Invesco (IVR -1.9%), and Western Mortgage (WMC -2%).  [View news story]
    I purchased NLY some time ago when so many of the financial articles I read said it was a good buy. I will be the first to admit that I do not fully understand the short to long term interest spread, the quarterly revaluation, and other related information that I should be in the know on. Can anyone recommend a site for obtaining such knowledge?

  • Petrobras (PBR) reportedly has set the wheels in motion for a sale of its Nigeria offshore interests in an auction that may fetch up to $5B, as it seeks to raise cash for its five-year $236B spending spree. By divesting assets such as the Nigeria blocks, PBR can focus on exploring for oil in the vast subsalt region off Brazil's coast thought to contain dozens of billions of barrels of high-quality oil. [View news story]
    I got burned by PBR, buying it at $32 thinking it was a deal. I do believe they have a ocean of oil, but they don't seem to be able to get it to market. I don't trust them any more; too much politics.
