April Oles-Magdzas was due to give birth to her second daughter Wednesday, a little more than a year after she and her Iraq war veteran husband became new parents. But when Oles-Magdzas’ mother showed up that day at the couple’s home in Superior, she found the entire family dead of an apparent murder-suicide. Superior police said Thursday that Matthew Magdzas, a 23-year-old Wisconsin National Guard soldier who earned a combat badge in the Iraq war, shot and killed his pregnant wife, their 13-month-old daughter Lila, and their three dogs before turning the gun on himself.

Piper Jaffray Raises Target, Estimates for Starbucks (SBUX)

Coffee retailer Starbucks Corporation ( SBUX ) late Wednesday saw its price target and earnings estimates boosted by analysts at Piper Jaffray. The firm raised its price target for SBUX to $34 from $32, and reiterated its “Overweight” rating. That new target represents an expected 39% upside to the stock’s Wednesday closing price of $24.50. Piper Jaffray said it’s becoming “increasingly confident” that Starbucks is transitioning into a portfolio growth name, due to its burgeoning consumer packaged goods business. Continuing, the analyst commented, “From a valuation perspective, we believe the CPG business merits $13 of value, implying the core business is trading at ~5x ev/EBITDA… conclusion is the CPG segment should help to deliver 400 bps of operating margin expansion, over time.” The firm raised its full-year 2010 sales estimate from $10.55 billion to $10.56 billion, and full-year 2011 estimate from $10.86 billion to $10.91 billion. Starbucks shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Thursday. The Bottom Line We have been recommending shares of SBUX since July 22, 2010, when the stock was trading at $24.86. The company has a 2.12% dividend yield, based on last night’s closing stock price of 24.50. Starbucks Corporation ( SBUX ) is a “recommended” dividend stock, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars.

BP And Feds Stonewalling Congress About Well Bore Integrity And BP Gulf Oil Spill Sea Floor Leaks Contributed by Alexander Higgins (Reporter) Wednesday, July 14, 2010 02:50 Experts are still warning that blown well casing and lack of well bore integrity could cause a massive underground blowout like the one that occurred during the IXTOC disaster. Such an underground blowout or the existence of large leaks in the sea floor may even prevent the relief wells from working altogether. That would mean that BP may never be able to stop the leaking well.

A new sheriff in town

So far this week we have experienced a $41.30 range in the August Globex market notching another all-time high of $1266.50 on Monday and trading as low as $1225.20 during the Wednesday session. This volatility is a direct result of the continued uncertainty with the fiscal crisis in the European Union as well as the growing geo-political tensions world -wide. Gold and Silver tend to do better than most commodities in times of crisis and warring environments as investors tend to look for “safer environments”.. investors are seeking tangible investments….This is happening globally… The underlying fundamental has been and continues to be the over whelming demand globally for physical Gold as “safer haven” investment. The lack of confidence in fiat currencies has caused this phenomenon this was reported Wednesday….. There are unsubstantiated reports from an Iranian news agency: There are reports that a large American Military force has massed in Azerbaijan on the northwest border of Iran. This coincides with a report the Pentagon confirmed over the weekend regarding “an unusually large U.S. fleet” sailing through the Suez Canal . Iran has been boasting to the world that they possess 17 kg of 20% enriched uranium ready….KEEP a very close eye on this situation !!!! The Purchase of new homes in the United States dropped in May to its lowest level on record. Sales dropped 33% much worse than the 19% projected by economists. The number of Americans applying for jobless benefits decreased by 19,000 to 457,000….This is good news!!! Many economists believe the European Union crisis has caused some employers have delayed their hiring plans until the region shows improvement . Given the current climate of the world I expect the choppiness and volatility to continue. In spite of record price levels the physical demand for both Gold and Silver remain extremely high. Investors have become convinced that the “precious metals” are a better long term alternative.
