iKang (KANG) Shares March Higher, Can It Continue?

Zacks Equity Research

As of late, it has definitely been a great time to be an investor in iKang Healthcare Group Inc (KANG). The stock has moved higher by 17.2% in the past month, while it is also above its 20 Day SMA too. This combination of strong price performance and favorable technical, could suggest that the stock may be on the right path.

We certainly think that this might be the case, particularly if you consider KANG’s recent earnings estimate revision activity. From this look, the company’s future is quite favorable; as KANG has earned itself a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), meaning that its recent run may continue for a bit longer, and that this isn’t the top for the in-focus company.

    South African Court More Than Doubles Oscar Pistorius's Prison Sentence for Murder

    Oscar Pistorius, the former Paralympian track runner who murdered his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp four years ago, has had his sentence more than doubled to 13 years and five months. The sentence would have been 15 years, only it was reduced to take into account time already served, South Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal said Friday. Pistorius was once best known for winning gold at the 2004 Athens Paralympics and for successfully fighting to compete in the 2012 London Olympics alongside able-bodied runners.

    Broadcom ‘Puts the Screws’ to Qualcomm on Turkey Day, Says Bernstein

    Shares of Qualcomm (QCOM) are up 54 cents, or 0.8%, at $68.67, and Broadcom (AVGO) is up $4.08, or 1.5%, at $279.45, as the maneuvering apparently continues in their M&A battle, according to a report yesterday by The New York Post’s Josh Kosman saying Broadcom “has looked to scuttle” Qualcomm’s existing offer to purchase NXP Semiconductors (NXPI). Given that many believe the NXP buy is pivotal for Qualcomm, Bernstein’s Stacy Rasgon today opines that Broadcom has left Qualcomm management with three not so good options. The Post story says Broadcom is considering raising its bid for Qualcomm, which was rejected two weeks ago by Qualcomm management, to $77 from $70. But a condition would appear

    China’s debt pile growing fast despite years of efforts to contain it

    By some estimates, China’s overall debt is now as much as three times the size of its economy. Without a comprehensive strategy to tackle the overhang, there is a growing risk China will have a banking crisis or sharply slower growth or both, the International Monetary Fund said last year. China's central bank governor, Zhou Xiaochuan, made global headlines with a warning last month of the risks of a "Minsky moment", referring to a sudden collapse in asset prices after long periods of growth, sparked by debt or currency pressures.
