Market Wrap-Up for Oct.29 (CF, POT, EL, AEM, BVN, PFE, more)

We have our next bubble area in full swing. Rare Earth stocks are running rampant, especially with the first Rare Earth ETF being launched this week. We are already seeing Microcap and OTC companies filing to change the name of their companies to have Rare Earth in their titles as well, amid tons of media buzz about the sector. We heard rumors that China (which produces the bulk of Rare Earth supplies at this point) was going to cut off rare earth supplies to the U.S, spiking various companies in the space. There has been steady demand for rare earth metals for many years, but with hybrid electric cars and devices such as laptops/ipads, the demand could continue to increase. All this said, there are scores of companies in the space that are years away from any sort of revenue and many will need to finance their ways (by selling stock through common stock offerings if they play the run-ups smart) all the way through the process. Why do I even mention this? Because there will be investors that will get lured in to the mania as we have seen before with satellite radio, fuel cell, and stem cell stocks. Can you make money if you are nimble? Of course, but human nature is that most traders fail to consistently beat the odds and too much money is usually lost in the process. Be very careful if you do try your hand at the latest bubble. Elsewhere, commodity plays in the fertilizer space (actually profitable companies, but alas with miniscule dividend yields), are running higher — led by CF Industries ( CF ) and Potash Corp ( POT ). Gold mining plays were also higher, led by Agnico-Eagle Mines ( AEM ) and Buenaventura ( BVN ). Unfortunately the names above are not appealing to income-seeking investors as the yields are relatively a non-factor. Estee Lauder ( EL ) jumped up big on the company’s Q1 results. This company also has a small dividend yield, and is better suited for investors that are looking more for growth opportunities. The stock is currently not a recommendation of ours at this time. Looking ahead to next week, we get more big-company earnings, led by Pfizer ( PFE ), Kellogg ( K ), and Prudential ( PRU ). Be sure to catch up with our latest watchlist updates this weekend on Dividend.com Premium , and as always, you can view our current recommendations on our industry-leading Best Dividend Stocks List . Have a great weekend everybody, and thanks

Market Wrap-Up for Aug.12 (EL, KSS, MA, GS, SPG, NEM, more)

Market Wrap-Up for Aug.12 (EL, KSS, MA, GS, SPG, NEM, more)

I have been following some interesting tidbits about a plan (Automatic IRA) that a New Mexico senator has sponsored that would require all firms with 10 or more employees that don’t already offer a retirement plan to automatically enroll workers in an IRA. Workers who don’t wish to participate would need to take action to opt out or change the default contribution amount and investments. This is a great idea, but one that needs to have numerous choices for workers to consider investing in. If the deal options are limited, then the plan could end up being a total disaster. I am sure Wall Street will be in the middle of the action to make sure the bill is a win-win. That’s fine, let’s just not make it a resolution to appease the firms with the biggest lobbyists! As for today’s action, we saw the markets bounce off this morning’s early weakness, but we couldn’t turn the corner all the way, closing down for the third day in a row. The market couldn’t shake loose from the earnings disappointments out of Estee Lauder ( EL ) , Kohl’s ( KSS ) and tech heavyweight Cisco Systems ( CSCO ). Several names bucked the selling, including Potash Corp ( POT ) , MasterCard ( MA ) , and gold-mining plays like Newmont Mining ( NEM ) , Buenaventura ( BVN ) , and Agnico-Eagle Mines ( AEM ) . There was an upgrade out this morning that seemed a bit strange as Goldman Sachs ( GS ) decided to move Simon Property Group ( SPG ) on its “conviction buy” list. Not sure what the catalyst could be there, since the stock has had a big run and sports a rather small (for a REIT) 2.65% dividend yield. We have also been concerned about the aggressive “momentum-style” trading that we have witnessed in that sector. We are currently underweight in the REIT space, hoping to see historically higher dividend yields, or significant boosts in payouts.
