Thwarting the Hackers: How to Invest in Cyber Security – Computer hacking, and the enormous threat it poses to individuals, companies, and governments. Given the potential for havoc that computer hackers can wreak, it’s no exaggeration to view this as comparable to fighting a war. We think investors should have a stake in this war, as long as they’re careful to back the right warriors. Here are 5 cyber-security warriors that are reasonably valued in view of solid long-term records and reasonable future PEG ratios, and each has a high free cash flow yield.
The Original Flash Boys– Think high speed, techy traders seeking out information and trading faster than the average Joe are new to the financial markets? Think again. The quest for speed and near riskless profit has been with us for centuries.
The Musings of a Stock Market Curmudgeon – Resident Curmudgeon, Thomas Henning: As the wailing and gnashing of teeth in the metals complex has reached a deafening level, it's time to step back and review the basic concepts of trend development and prepare and lay out an attitude for the next primary bull swing within the metals cyclic bull market. The gold market is likely bottoming with a possible downside poke remaining.
Base Metals Forecast - Analysts with Natixis Commodity Research provide us with their 2015-2016 outlook and price targets for Aluminium, Copper, Lead, Nickel, Zinc, Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium.
Gold: Deaf Prophets – Central banks have become part of the problem. Our global economy is stuck in neutral despite the unprecedented financial engineering by central banks, the new oligarchs. The era of quantitative easing has spawned an extra ordinary financed bubble that shares the same characteristics as the financial crisis of 2008-2009. Markets will feel that pain when this bubble will finally burst. The unwinding from this money drop and the eventual defacto devaluation of the U.S. dollar will be good for gold. Gold Stock Recommendations: Barrick Gold, B2 Gold, Eldorado, Goldcorp, IAMGold Corp, Newmont and Yamanae.
Why the Superbuck Scares Investors – Why has the dollar been so strong? There are a number of reasons. A stronger dollar has been a lifeline for struggling economies in Europe and Japan, boosting exports, relieving deflationary pressures and lifting global growth in general.

Radio Stocks: Don’t Tune Them Out Just Yet – George Putnam, III, The Turnaround Letter, thinks the radio industry may yet have life in it, for a variety of reasons. Radio remains one of the cheapest forms of advertising media, yet between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. radio reaches more Americans than TV, online or mobile. Radio revenues will benefit from massive political advertising next year.
Buffett’s Best Dividend Stocks – If you’re looking for income today, consider buying some of Buffett’s favorite dividend-payers. These four stocks yield 3 percent or more, and all but one of the firms recently announced a dividend hike.
Coke Gains Sparkle – Genia Turanova thinks it’s now time to buy KO. While growth estimates remain low, although the stock still trades at above-market valuations, much of the negativity is priced in. Coke offers a nice 2.9 percent yield.
Natixis Metals Review – Analysts with Natixis Commodity Research give their outlook and forecast price targets for Base Metals, Gold, Silver and PGMs for 2015 and 2016. For both base and precious metals, the effects of the lengthy investment cycle will be of crucial significance. Current low prices may be deterring investment, but it can take 4-6 years before the full effects of changing investment decisions are felt in terms of mine output.
Gold: The Race to the Bottom – Since 1971, when gold’s link to the dollar was severed, gold has outpaced consumer prices, stock markets and debt. Simply it is an alternative currency. Gold is money. Central banks can always create new money with the click of a mouse but the total supply of gold is finite. Thus, while our central bankers are busy creating money, other central banks led by Russia and the Chinese are buying gold. Gold Stock Recommendations: B2Gold Corp, Barrick, Eldorado Gold, Goldcorp, IAMGold, Kinross Gold, New Gold, and Yamana Gold.
Investment Situations – Fairmont Resources is fully permitted to produce aggregate lump titano-magnetite in Quebec that can be shipped through the Great Lakes or the Atlantic Ocean; Atna Resources: Optimizes Gold Production: Increasing Productivity and Lowering Pinson Mine Costs; Puma Exploration has completed a successful drilling program at Turgeon Copper-Zinc VMS project in New Brunswick; Torex Gold Resources Inc. is building its first gold mine, defining its second one, and looking for more at its 100% Morelos Gold Property, located in Southwest Mexico.
