IMF Report Warns of Potential Danger

Oct 07 2015 @ 15:18
Yesterday the International Monetary Fund (IMF) its World Economic Outlook report. I saw the report as cautionary. I also suggested waiting for today’s IMF Global Financial Stability Report. Even a cursory reading of today’s report suggests that the IMF is recommending more than caution, but, however subtly, issuing just enough of a warning to be […]

IMF Offers Lackluster Economic Outlook

Oct 06 2015 @ 15:05
Leading up to its October meeting from the 9th to the 11th of this month in Lima, Peru, the International Monetary Fund released its World Economic Outlook today. The release was skillfully crafted, including its title, “Uncertainty, Complex Forces Weigh on Global Growth.” Maurice Obstfeld, IMR Economic Counsellor and Director of Research, described the global […]

Defence Contractors Under the Radar

Oct 02 2015 @ 18:17
Despite our own ADVFN News Summary page indicating that there was “No major news today” in the Aerospace & Defence sector, major U.S. defense manufacturers have enjoyed what would be called a good day by any standard. I try to keep an eye on suppliers to the military on a regular basis, but with the […]

BHP Billiton News Prompts Rebound

Sep 23 2015 @ 12:36
BHP Billiton’s share price (LSE:BLT) rebounded today as two new parts of the company’s developing story were revealed. By and large, investors will probably give much more attention to the cuts in executive pay than the other, just as significant story. BHP shares are up at 1,046.00 at 11:09 a.m. EDT. That is a gain […]

Response to BHP Billiton Tactic Is Telling

Sep 22 2015 @ 14:07
Mining shares were like an anchor for the FTSE today, during a period when the last thing the FTSE needs is an anchor. Although it was not the biggest loser of mining sector of the combined 1,034 losers on the LSE, BHP Billiton’s share price (LSE:BLT) fell more than 5.0% to 1,021.50, back the position it […]

Federal Reserve Holds Interest Rates

Sep 17 2015 @ 15:14
All day long financial news sites have been littered with headlines speculating about whether or not the U.S. Federal Reserve would at last raise interest rates this month as has long been anticipated. If not speculating about whether or not, they speculated all day about what if. Between that and the reports on last night’s […]

Citi Warns of Potential Global Recession

Sep 09 2015 @ 16:02
Normally I don’t pay much attention to warnings of potential financial woes on the horizon, largely because there is always someone prophesying global gloom and doom. But when Citigroup’s chief economist warns, it is not only something I regard as newsworthy, it is something I regard as significant. Willem Buiter doesn’t do this sort of […]

Shares of Glencore (LSE:GLEN) rose more than 7% to close at 131.80 on the London Exchange today when it released an update on its aggressive plans to reduce its net debt and “adapt the business to the current commodity landscape.” The move is much the same as Lord Nelson would have done with HMS Victory, […]

The Wise Know the Whys of Buy-and-Hold

Sep 01 2015 @ 12:30
I am not so foolish as to believe that everyone espouses a buy-and-hold strategy of investment in the stock market. However, I firmly believe that for the average person, buy-and-hold is the wisest strategy. There are different types of people with different purposes for buying, selling, or holding stocks. The “Whys” Investor Speculators watch the […]
