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 […]

Steady as she goes

Sep 17 2015 @ 20:57
So there we have it, the Fed has left interest rates on hold, and as I have been saying, this was to be expected. Janet Yellen talked about uncertainty over China being a significant factor, and as I outlined again yesterday, subdued inflation was held out as another reason to remain loose. The US indices […]

And Now for Something Completely Different

Aug 26 2015 @ 16:12
Thank you, Monty Python, for the title – one that is sorely needed at the moment. People need to think about something other than the market correction set off by concerns out of and about China. We can’t afford to all be in a dither. It has been exciting for the global economy to seem […]

Obama Healthcare Driving More Major M&A

Jul 24 2015 @ 11:40
It has been only 18 days since ADVFN published “The Obamacare Effect Starts U.S. Merger Frenzy” on 06 July, in which we reported that U.S.-based healthcare insurer, Aetna (NYSE:AET), announced that it would be acquiring all outstanding shares in Humana (NYSE:HUM). At that time,  the New York Times and others had forecasted that that acquisition would be merely the first ripple...

SCOTUS Turns Deaf Ear to BP and Anadarko

Jun 29 2015 @ 14:10
The Supreme Court of the United States makes major headlines only a few times a year, but when it does, it usually makes enough to stir up enough controversy to last well into its next session. In the past week alone the justices, in their infinite wisdom, have ruled against individual states rights with respect […]

McDonald's Not as American as Apple Pie

Jun 18 2015 @ 13:04
Nothing in the food industry has ever been as American as McDonald’s (NYSE:MCD), but the company has been losing its grip on the restaurant sector or its appeal to American customers for several years. MCD’s share price has been in decline since 19 May. It’s current share price is 96.32, up 1.16 in intraday trading, […]

FTSE Almost Reaches 7,000 - I Told You So!

Mar 19 2015 @ 15:21
In the waning trading hours yesterday I wrote “I, for one, believe that there may be adequate activity and the right atmosphere to make this the week that the FTSE reaches 7,000.00.” That’s a pretty bold statement to make on a Wednesday afternoon. Lot’s of pundits might dare to say something like that before a […]

Markets Not Concerned About Obama

Jan 21 2015 @ 12:28
The man who would like to think that he is the most influential person in the world gave a speech last night. It seems as though no one from the financial world listened to it, but that’s not really the case. The fact is that the financial world has bigger fish to fry and whole […]

Jan 20 2015 @ 15:13
This evening the Orator in Chief of the United States will walk into a hostile, bicameral Congress for the first time in his presidency.
