Market Wrap-Up for Jan.27 (QCOM, BEN, SWK, PG, CL, T, more)

Glum news out on Social Security this morning as we hear the Social Security system will run at a deficit this year and keep on running in the red until its trust funds are drained by about 2037. Congressional budget experts had expected social security to post surpluses for a few more years before permanently slipping into the red in 2016. I can’t stress enough to our readers that the time to take charge of your retirement, nest egg, or ambitions to build your own wealth — immediately! Depending on the government to provide a comfortable retirement can potentially set up many for some tough times, especially those who have saved little of what they have earned. I can’t stop saying enough that investing in dividend-paying stocks can be a huge source of extra income that you can get started building today. Many of our readers have already been putting the wheels in motion and are not waiting for rude awakening. I wanted to make a quick note regarding the website. We are in the process of upgrading our server for Dividend.com (need to accommodate the larger audience that continues to head our way – it’s a good thing!), so the site could be down sporadically at various times over the next day.

General Motors (GM): Old Company, New Stock

Strong December Auto Sales Raise Hopes for 2011

Filed under: Industry , Ford Motor (F) , General Motors (GM) , Toyota Motor Corp. (TM) , Economic Data , Nissan Motors (NSANY) December is traditionally a slow month for auto sales.

Market Wrap-Up for Dec.28 (GM, MCP, REE, more)

Filed in commodities, dividend, economy, General Motors, Gold, Gold Investing, lead, o, silver by on December 28, 2010 0 Comments

As I mentioned yesterday, we are seeing lots of trading activity in stocks that have a bit of a speculative tone to them this last week of the year. Why are we noticing it more? Because there are many retail investors home the last week of the year (vacation time for many) and starving for action. The rare earth stocks had a crazy day of trading (MCP, REE) on news China is trimming exports of rare earth supplies. The stocks rallied big early on, but word of production delays made both names tumble off the intraday lows. You have to remember that these companies have yet to make a profit and are highly volatile trading instruments. As for other news on commodities, gold, oil, and silver are moving higher as well. I worry about the effects ramping commodity prices will have on corporate profits as the economy tries to stabilize further into 2011. Companies are not hiring now while things are going well, so what will happen if commodity costs eat into margins. The bounce-back in the jobs market is still a concern for me, because at some point, the ability for the market to ignore this key fact will certainly be tested. Everyone is clamoring for housing prices to bounce, but data out this morning paints a continued ugly picture. The S&P/Case-Shiller index of property values fell 0.8 percent from October 2009, the biggest year-over-year decline since December 2009, the group said today in New York. Economists had only expected a 0.2 percent drop. I still see homes as mostly vehicles for people that are looking for a place they want to live. The old-fashioned way and most reliable way to make money in real estate is to buy income-producing properties where the numbers work and you are actually making money each month (rents cover all the expenses and you can put some money in your pocket). Wall Street analysts all put in a good word for General Motors ( GM ) today as many initiated positive ratings following the auto manufacturer’s recent IPO. December has been a solid month for the market with very few down days. As a matter of fact, the S&P has closed higher 16 of the 19 trading sessions this month. Volume has not been as strong as previous months, so take that as a bit of caution as the new year gets set to roll in. A pullback in January would certainly be welcome for some of our higher-yielding recommendations. It would be great for investors to get into high quality dividend names at even better entry points. The key to building long

Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) Top Equity Banker on Pricing, Tops JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM)

It remains to be seen the cost associated with winning the title of top equity banker is worth it to Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), as they overcame JPMorgan for the title, but did it by competing on price, which of course generates the question of its impact on margins and earnings. Included in some of Morgan Stanley’s big deals were equity offerings from Citigroup (NYSE:C) and General Motors (NYSE:
