IGC announced they have signed a 5 year contract with a Chinese steel manufacturer, to begin supplying iron ore. The contract is valued at approximately $160 million. Under the agreement, IGC will deliver 63.5 percent ferrous content iron ore, initially 40,000 Metric Tons (MT) per ship load, building up to 80,000 MT per shipload up to an aggregate of 1,600,000 MT over the life of the contract. The iron ore will be supplied from mines in India and shipped out of the Visakhapatnam port, off the eastern coast of India and out of Karwar on the west coast. [more]

With the economy booming I can't wait to see what these stocks earn.
GREECE is only 5% of the European GDP yet the entire stock market today is supposedly falling because of GREECE worries, What? How many times are the Bears gonna keep on using GREECE as an excuse to tell people to sell?
AAPL sales are soaring because the TECHS are in a Secular Bull Market.
2010 began. One Metal Alloy Molybdenum has surged even higher in recent weeks from $15 to $18+, it looks poised to head into the $20's at which time traders will then talk about how it can break 2007 highs of mid $30's, the demand of MOLY is increasing sharply due to its strength properties which make steel stronger and resist heat at high temperatures. China and worldwide infrastructure upgrades are the cause for the high demand. (Moly is used in Steel for use in Bridges, High Rise buildings and Industrial applications Power plants, Oil rigs, Oil Refiners, etc. [more]
Morgan Stanley on Conference Call: SAYS IT HAS NOT RECEIVED A WELLS NOTICE IN CONNECTION WITH CDOs. (31.67 +1.22) -Update-
Global Wealth Management business summarized on Page 8 of the supplement, our revenues of 3.1 billion were relatively flat from last quarter, as retail investors remained on the sidelines and the interest rates environment continued to be low... Growth prospects remain strong for emerging markets in particular, and appear to be improving in developed markets. Economic recovery and emerging markets can be seen in terms of both profitability and activity... view the signs of improvement positively, although sustained confidence is key for investors and corporates to reengage; seeing this confidence in the build in investment banking pipeline... believe resolving regulatory reform is critical for industry and the global Capital Markets; welcome regulatory reform and hope to see bipartisan legislation pass as soon as possible... CDO Comments: Says not commenting on regulatoery matters; standard policy; SAYS IT HAS NOT RECEIVED A WELLS NOTICE IN CONNECTION WITH CDOs. [more]
Apple shipped 8.75 million iPhones last quarter, versus expectations around 7 million. Incredibly, iPhone sales more-than doubled vs. the prior year.
Mac sales were solid: 2.94 million shipped, versus expectations around 2.7 million. And Apple's iPod business is still showing signs of life: 10.89 million units shipped vs. 9 million Street consensus. [more]

How is this possible? Simple, the market was going up but in small steps. Today the Goldman news has basically given the bears the courage to short the market with both feet. That being said, watch what happens next week when the bears find out they were suckered into shorting more than they could chew. [more]
Are you going to go against the trend and buy financials instead?
should be in focus. Especially the multi-national companies as Louis Navellier says that these are the companies that are benefitting from the emerging markets growth so far this year. [more]
Fairchild Semiconductor to Highlight Energy-Efficient Lighting Solutions at PCIM Europe Last update: 4/13/2010 11:00:02 AM SAN JOSE, Calif., Apr 13, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS), a leading global supplier of high-performance power and mobile products, will highlight its LED lighting solutions at PCIM Europe. Fairchild will also feature its leading power technologies and application demos that highlight Fairchild's innovative AC-DC, DC-DC and automotive designs. High brightness LEDs use a fraction of the wattage that average incandescent bulbs use, last longer than fluorescent's and eliminate hazardous materials such as mercury and lead. Fairchild's broad portfolio of power solutions enable higher efficiency in these applications, reduce component count and contribute to ecodesign. For example, Fairchild's PSR controllers, the FSEZ1307 and FAN102, eliminate power losses caused by the secondary side current sensing and achieve the most accurate constant current, allowing devices to accommodate different numbers of LED in series. These devices eliminate the secondary-side circuitry, and reduce the number of components, resulting in a lower Bill of Material (BOM) costs and less waste, contributing to ecodesign. Fairchild's boundary mode PFC control IC, the FAN6961 or FAN7930, provides active power factor correction and component count for the power supplies that drive these LEDs. Fairchild will also highlight its broad portfolio of AC-DC solutions that offer up to 96 percent efficiency, low standby power and system reliability. Demos will feature the award-winning interleaved boundary-mode PFC controller, the FAN9612, as well as the FSFA2100, a 450W half-bridge asymmetric power switch. In DC-DC designs, Fairchild's solutions achieve over 50 percent space savings; optimizing power and ease-of-design. Demos will feature the TinyBuck(TM) family that offers high efficiency for point of load (POL), set-top boxes, servers and smart meter applications and Dual Cool(TM) MOSFETs that improve power density, power dissipation and system reliability in applications such as telecom, datacom and workstations. For automotive, Fairchild will showcase its gate drivers, which enable increased fuel efficiency. Demos will include the FAN708x series of HVICs that allow engineers to develop more accurate and precise fuel injection control systems under all operating conditions. Fairchild technologists will present the following papers: -- Conduction mode EMI analysis of flyback topology SMPS -- Thermal characterization of multi-die products -- High cell density, shielded-gate power MOSFET for improved DC-DC applications Fairchild will also deliver two vendor presentations: -- Improving Efficiency and Standby Power for 200W-500W AC input power supplies -- Thermally Enhanced, Top-Side Cooling Power56 Package for High Current DC-DC Solutions PCIM, held in Nuremberg, May 4-6, is Europe's premiere venue for experts in power electronics and applications in Intelligent Motion and Power Quality. About Fairchild Semiconductor: Fairchild Semiconductor (FCS) -- global presence, local support, smart ideas.

Analyst says (GPOR) Grizzly Oil Sands stake worth $14/shr
So its no wonder the stock has surged to mid $13's last week, but that maybe just the start because if the Grizzly Oil Sands is worth $14 then currently your buying the rest of the company for free at today's stock price.
All the action in Gulfport's share price is related to its 25% stake in Grizzly Oil Sands, an exploration company similar in profile to Athabasca, though Grizzly is at an earlier stage of development.
At the end of 2009, PetroChina (PTR) paid C $1.9 billion to buy stakes in Athabasca oil sands acreage adjacent to Grizzly Oil Sands holdings, and the price paid led to a gradual surge in Gulfport shares (GPOR). Gulfport shares climbed from under $10 to over $12 by the end of January. [more]
