  • Eagle Rock Energy Partners Cash Flow Struggles Put 11% Yield At Risk [View article]
    There is NOTHING to indicate that the distribution will be cut. NOTHING. They are in a temporary cash flow situation and will correct in the first quarter and will not jeopardize the distribution at this point.

  • More on Apple: Bloomberg reports the company is teaming up with top phone distributor BrightStar to create an iPhone trade-in program; the program will only be available via Apple (AAPL) retail outlets. Such a move could both help Apple boost iPhone upgrade rates and profit from a burgeoning refurbished phone market. TechCrunch observes Apple offered a trade-in program last year ahead of the iPhone 5 launch, in partnership with private PowerON. However, that tie-up didn't leverage Apple Stores. [View news story]

  • Apple: Inside Icahn's Indecent Proposal [View article]
    "On the other hand, the success of the Icahn Proposal will ultimately depend on Apple having new, exciting products in the pipeline."

    Not necessarily true. First there is China mobile and the emerging markets with the newer cheaper phone. Enormous markets....sales...pro... cash etc. Second, added uses for present product line up. Remember Jobs did not invent the IPOD but newer ways to use it via iTunes. Watch for this next month. When the Billionaires pile in, it is for a reason, nit necessarily financial engineering.

  • Facing Up To A Bad Call On Synovus [View article]
    There are a lot of "yeah buts" in this article. This is why I own. Improving fundamentals across the board. Loans are the biggest factor for me and the decline in NPL's I think was great. Tarp cloud gone with relatively small increase in shares. Buybacks and Dividend increases are catalysts to look forward to. Improving economy particularly housing and cars. This under the backdrop of a possible takeover and Fed tapering giving us a steeper yield curve.

  • If rising interest rates were good for regional banks (KRE -1.6%), than falling rates must be bad? The regionals are notably in the red despite a broad market advance this morning. The stocks cruised right through the June rate fright, but are lower this week ahead of earnings, as analysts turn cautious given their now-pricey valuations, and as interest rates slide. Huntington (HBAN -1.5%), Regions (RF -3.1%), BB&T (BBT -1.1%), Hudson City (HCBK -1%), SunTrust (STI -1.7%), Fifth Third (FITB -0.2%), KeyCorp (KEY -2.1%), Zions (ZION -2.2%). [View news story]
    I think that once the earnings are out these stocks will bounce back. Economy is improving and loan demand will pick up increasing spreads. Regionals will unload portions of their bond investments for C & I and Real Estate loans as the economy prospers. Goldman predicts large improvement in housing starts which will also be a driver. And then there is the possibility of consolidation with stocks like SNV. Hang on and let the internals drive valuations and not the FAST MONEY crowd.

  • "We should all hope for a normalization of interest rates," says Jamie Dimon (JPM), speaking in China. "As we go back to normal, it's going to be scary, and it's going to be volatile ... I am going to look at every word the Fed says." [View news story]
    This is beginning to sound like the Y2K Panic with the same ending as fears over gradually increasing interest rates are offset by increased revenues.

  • UBS upgrades global financials to Overweight from Underweight on a healing global economy, rebuilt capital, and the sector's shift "from being a net issuer to a net distributor of cash." Furthermore, the U.S. banking sector (XLF) is taken to Overweight as balance sheet strength and attractive valuations play well with the housing market recovery to create compelling opportunities. European banks (EUFN) are lifted to Neutral "with a preference towards Nordic and U.K. banks." Financials respond in London with LLoyds Banking Group (LYG) +2.3%, Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) +3.3%, and Barclays (BCS) up 0.5%[View news story]
    Agreed, valuations are compelling.
