  • Stellar Biotechnologies: Low Risk Biotech Provider With Significant Upside [View article]
    There has been no insider buying or selling for the past two years. And, almost no institutional buying - one holding a 15K stake. An interesting article, but a large risk.

  • Despite today's closing hiccup, the S&P 500 is up in January and February this year. This has occurred 26 times since 1945, notes Bob Pisani, and each time the S&P finished green for the year, with an average gain of 24%. [View news story]
    Of course it's not foolproof. The point has to do with the number of times the market was up at the end of february and higher at the end of the year. That's 100% which statistically is significant, of course. Doesn't guarantee it will happen again, but history is likely to repeat.

  • The big tech selloff that's occurred over the last few weeks has resulted in valuations for many large-cap names once more falling to historically low levels. Here are some trailing P/Es for prominent large-caps, none of which take into account net cash and investments: Intel (INTC): 10.6. Microsoft (MSFT): 10.3. Apple (AAPL): 13.7. Google (GOOG): 15. Cisco (CSCO): 9. IBM: 13.6. EMC: 14.7. Dell (DELL): 6. H-P (HPQ): 5.1. On the other hand, Facebook (FB) still has a trailing P/E of 64.5.  [View news story]
    And don't forget Intel. When the market turns around it should go to 32 - 33, and if the mobile chips take off, it will go even higher. While I wait for that I'm earning over 3%.
