You cab get ideas from the gurus but need to do your own research. I stumbled upon this stock awhile back and listened to their investors day webcast. Last year we bought my wife a Toyota Highlander with all the bells and whistles for our travel car. When I heard NXPI talk about all the stuff in these new vehicles and had experienced using the features it was a no brainer to pick up some shares. I also own some Master Card stock and understood how powerful NXPI chips are in that whole area. Considering the growth prospects the valuation seems quite reasonable.
The price drop hit utilities in general because the 10 year bond interest rate ran up to 2.12% which would start to give utilities competition for investment dollars. Not so much today but in the future and these momentum players jump through their butts when change may effect their investments. D is in all the ETF's so even if people like it better than other utilities it still gets taken to the woodshed.
As a retiree I listen to every webcast for every company that I own. If you have followed this company you know that there are huge opportunities. One of the biggest head wind in any year is hurricanes and the Virginia regulators are allowing them to bury aerial cable in rural areas. This will cut down on maintenance and problems every time their is a hurricane. Regulators in many states are waking up to the fact that utility plant has been getting old and requires investment along with the revenue to support the out lays.
This is my favorite utility along with WEC and pipeline operators SE & KMI.
Have no idea. That is why I am not a trader. I have owned RGEN and CELG for about 2 years and when I look back they are around double. Based on their portfolios of products going forward I would expect both to do much better than the overall market. So i do not know if they will be double again in 2 years but I expect significant gains and cannot get excited over 40 or so point swings for REGN. One thing I do know is that it is crazy to short these high growth stocks. I also own NXPI semiconductor. The shorts woke up Monday and the stock was up over 15% in premarket as NXPI bought a similar company giving them a powerful hold on all their markets.
Thanks for the heads up. I listen to every conference on every stock I own (I am retired and have the time). I should have known, I listened to REGN's earlier this week. The whole industry seems to be in a trading range price wise. Eventually these stocks will have good earnings news and we will see another share price break out.
New is a bad word to use because the PE valuations change with the 10 year bond. If the 10 year were to fall enough to create a 4% yield that 25 PE would fall drastically. MMM is also trading at a very high PE compared to it's growth rate. Any misstep sends it down, which could easily happen due to the currency issues. I am a holder but would not buy any more at current price.
Not a misprint. It has traded about 181K shares w/ low of 79.38 and high of 80.93. There is rarely any liquidity after the close so you get these crazy swings and have idiots besides that do not put in limit orders. There are traders there lurking to get good prices in both directions.
After these kinds of run ups you will get some back sliding; however, the price now reflects a completely different company resulting from the takeover.
NXP Semiconductors NV (NXPI) has been on the move lately as the stock has risen by 27.9% in the past four weeks, and it is currently trading well above its 20-Day SMA. This is a pretty solid move higher, but the question that has to be on investors’ minds right now is; can this trend continue?
While there can be no telling for sure, it is certainly encouraging that earnings estimates have risen in the past few weeks on the company, suggesting that sentiment on NXPI is moving in the right direction. In fact, the stock currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), suggesting that the recent run could certainly continue for this in-focus company.
Zacks article does not mention the takeover but it is just a snippet to get you to buy the full report. Regardless it is interesting and rated a strong buy.
City of Tulsa Wins Southwestern American Water Works Association's Best-Tasting Water Award for Second Consecutive Year - BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Cabot Corporation (CBT) announced that its activated carbon is used to purify some of the best-tasting water in the United States. The City of Tulsa, Okla. recently claimed the award for best-tasting water in the region for the second year in a row at the Southwestern American Water Works Association's annual conference.
Tulsa’s water goes through an extensive and thorough treatment and testing process before it reaches a resident’s faucet. The city’s water meets all federal and state regulations, meaning that the water not only tastes good, but that it is also safe to drink.
For the past 15 years, the City of Tulsa has exclusively utilized NORIT® GAC 820 and HYDRODARCO® 820 granular activated carbons at both of its municipal potable water plants. This highly porous, carbonaceous material purifies drinking water by adsorbing and removing natural organic compounds, synthetic organic chemicals, and taste and odor causing compounds.
“Cabot Norit Activated Carbon is a technology leader in the global water purification market. We develop, manufacture and market a broad range of activated carbons that ensure potable water is safe, reliable and tastes great,” said Friedrich von Gottberg, senior vice president and president, Purification Solutions Segment. “Our activated carbon products meet the most stringent global requirements and help water utilities provide their customers with safe, reliable drinking water straight from the tap.”
Cramer hyped REGN when it was under $20 about 5 years ago. Now over $400. What a loser Cramer is!!
Is there anyone out there who owns stock in this company???
REGN presented at the Cowen conference earlier today. The webcast is on REGN investor portion of company website for anyone that actually listens to what the company is actually doing. The question and answer was in a break out room so no Q&A on the webcast. Nice encapsulation of where they are with the 4 main compounds plus quick update on some newer work.
Since most energy stocks were down today ETF's must have been down and they drag down everything in them. PSX is in a lot of ETF's that are broad based in the energy space. Then add to this all the prior comments on this string.
Analysts' projection for revenue growth is 11.3% in 2015 and 7.3% in 2016. Lot more to come. Lots of opportunity especially in the auto market. Listen to their most recent conference call. All the growth is laid out for every major product line plus standard products.
X-dividend is March 5 with payout on March 20. They declared the dividend on February 24. Increase of one cent per quarter.
there have been 4 splits all 2 for 1 in 1972, 1987, 1994 & 2003. The day before all the splits the stock was over $100. In 1987 it was over 150 which would be a huge number based on inflation. There are many companies that just do not care about splits anymore. Visa is over $270. Lockheed is over $200 just to name a couple. It is a Dow stock now so you do not need more liquidity.
To bad they did not have more time. The analyst asking the questions kept on cutting in and not let the full answer. There were more questions than time. Definitely a lot going on.
If you follow the company closely like all the conference calls, analyst's days and news items you know that they have huge backlog in growth CAPEX projects. These projects are spread over all of their assessts such as pipelines, Jones act tankers, terminals, barges etc. The big projects are not undertaken unless they sell out usage on the pipes or ships out into the future for many years. This will ultimately lead to higher earnings and cash flow.
Astronomers are constantly monitoring the Suns activity and particular sun spots. There has been a reduction in the latest cycle and there are some that are concerned. I read one article that activity has been lower than forecasts.
The Maunder Minimum
Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715 (38 kb JPEG image). Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.
