Conocophillips is a 2 for 1

September 29, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: COP

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND MORE GRAPHS

The reason I say Conocophillips (COP) is a 2 for 1 is the company will have a spin-off and become 2 companies early in 2012.  One company will contain the Refining and Marketing businesses and the other will contain the Exploration and Production businesses.  Buy COP now and you'll receive shares in both companies in the Spring.  My projections and comments are based on the company as it presently exists.  The stock is recovering as the Barchart hourly trading chart reveals:

AT&T for income

September 21, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: T

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS

An old favorite income stock AT&T (T) has been in the news lately for its attempted purchase and merger of Deutche Telekom's US operations known as T-Mobile.  There is a lot of opposition lining up against it but that "bad" press has made the recent weakness in price an even better bargain for income investors.

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS

There are so many sound world wide stocks that are just waiting in the wings waiting for the economy to take a turn.  In my opinion of the the best among then is Caterpillar (CAT).  No mater where you go in the world you are bound to see the yellow equipment with the big CAT logo on the side. Sales in Europe and China are slightly down but they are still buying in the emerging markets.  One look at this Barchart of the past years trading history will show how far the stock has fallen:

Over the years a company that has always been in the news has been the iconic American brand Coca-Cola (KO).  No matter where in the world you go you see the bottle, logo and even without knowing the local language to read the label you know its a Coke.  The stock has even caught Warren Buffet's attention and is part of the Bershire Hathaway (BRK.B) portfolio.  Is there still fizz left for your portfolio?  Let's look at the numbers.

Freeport-McMoRan is baffling

September 13, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: FCX

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS

Freemont-McMoRan (FCX) is on so many buy lists that its price action baffles me.  The fact that the stock is not living up to its expectations might be a signal that now is a good time to buy it. The stock is down over 32.53% from this years high vs the Value Line Index which is only off 21.49% from its 1 year high.  At an 8.6 P/E ratio it is priced at about 50% of the overall markets P/E ratio and almost the same discount from its own median P/E ratio.

I'm going out on a limb and predicting that investors who invest in Tansocean (RIG) at this level could see a short term pop of 23% - 27% annual total return over the next 5 years.  The stock has been beaten down but they now have almost all their deep water rigs back on line and the last one should be operational shortly.
