Is the Market at a Historic Turning Point? Top Watchers Say. . .
2012-06-01 23:33:00
“Richard Russell will likely be right about the broader markets entering a bear market,” said Jeff Clark, a senior precious metals analyst with Casey Research. “Otherwise, where is all the economic growth going to come from that will nullify the otherwise unavoidable impact of record debt, obscene deficit spending and runaway money printing?” he asked. “As a gold equities investor, though, this doesn’t worry me because the very reasons we’ll likely have a bear market in the overall stock market are the same ones that will drive gold and then gold stocks higher. In fact, gold is becoming less of an investment and more of … [visit site to read . . . → Read More: Is the Market at a Historic Turning Point? Top Watchers Say. . .

On the demand front, global food consumption is growing steadily alongside population growth, urbanization, rising disposable income and shifting dietary patterns?particularly in emerging markets. According to the FAO, global food production needs to increase by 70% by 2050 just to keep the world adequately fed. That’s an enormous uplift compared to current levels.

The Gold Report: Robert, British Prime Minister David Cameron said that the European debt crisis could “get a lot worse.” What’s your view on the likely outcome? Robert Cohen: I think he’s right. It has the potential to get worse before it gets better. Europeans are going to have to deal with some sort of Eurozone fracture. Greece could certainly exit the euro within weeks rather than years. It has an election on June 17, and it will probably be bankrupt by the end of June. TGR: Can the Eurozone survive without Greece?

What happened to the $130/barrel ($130/bbl) oil that people were talking about? Frederick Kozak: When oil gets into triple digits, $100+, $110, $120/bbl, it really starts impacting the North American economy, particularly the U.S. As gas approaches $5/gal, people start cutting back, which impacts worldwide demand.

Gold and Silver Stocks Are in Deep Value Territory: Alka Singh

Alka Singh: Gold prices have actually been on a rise since early 2002, but you are right that the last leg up started about two and a half years ago. The issues that led to the rise were that countries were printing money to finance themselves.

Airtel Intends To Tap Lucrative Markets With 49% Acquisition Of Qualcomm In
2012-05-25 10:21:00
Bharti Airtel has acquired 49% stake in Qualcomm India for US$ 165 Million (Rs. 907 Crores). The company intends to have a say in Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) for select regions in India. Airtel has chosen the perfect time to invest in the company. Our readers will surely recall how Qualcomm had to fight bitterly with Indian government to retain what it had rightfully acquired. At one point in time Qualcomm was about to lose its license & money too. But fortunately, it was able to win it back. Once its entry was confirmed, Airtel simply chose to pump in money to hitch a ride. With this acquisition Airtel will gain entry in additional 4 key circles for the 4G LTE market & that will bring its total active presence to 8 of the total 22 circles in India. While Airtel has already brought 4G in India, it is in the form of USB Dongles only. With Qualcomm’s expertise & hardware support, Airtel will be able to easily spread its wings in the niche 4G market to Mumbai, Delhi,...

The Energy Report: Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) have really grown in the past few years. Why is that? Darren Schuringa: MLPs’ growth is really two fold. First, the sheer number of partnerships doing initial public offerings has accelerated. In 2000 there were 27 MLPs, and today there are 85 listed. The second half of the growth story is simply strong performance. The total returns of MLPs over the past five years have averaged 14.2% relative to the S&P 500, which has been flat to slightly down over that same period.

Frank Barbera: In the headlines, Europe looks like quite the mess. Imagine being a Greek who saved over a lifetime now facing the possibility of devaluation or Greece leaving the euro. If Greece pulls out of the euro and devalues, most of the people will see their life savings collapse in terms of purchasing power.

Of course, we’re talking about the elections in France and Greece. What’s going on?

High End Tablets Rule Indian Markets, No Place For Ultra-Affordable?
2012-05-21 13:57:00
Despite companies continually launching low priced tablets, it’s the high-end ones that are ruling the roost. Indian consumers have demonstrated their hunger for performance oriented & premium priced tablets with Apple’s iPad gaining a very healthy 51% market share last year. The latest iPad launched recently may show a healthy adoption rate too. After defeating its close rival Nokia, Samsung has proven itself in the tablet market with 24% via its Galaxy line of tablets. A recent survey by an US Based ABI Research brought forward such interesting insights in the hereto niche market. Will the ultra-affordable stand a chance? India as a market for tablets is yet to take off. Last year, only 0.39 Million Tablets were shipped in India as compared to 65 Million shipped globally. Experts estimate the market to grow 71% annually & by 2017, around 10 Million tablets could be sold here. Hence, it is too early to relegate the low-cost tablets to the history books.

How does it help? Mansur Khan: From a societal and governmental point of view, there are a number of benefits. EVs can really help reduce carbon emissions.
