Hail Mary Investing

hail mary investing special research report Photo by
Bob Turner is founder of Turner Investments and a manager of several funds at the investment company. In a recent article he reintroduces the all-important, longstanding debate of active management (“hands-on”) versus passive management (“hands off”) approaches to investing. Mr. Turner makes some good arguments for the active management camp, however some feel differently – take for example Burton Malkiel.  The Princeton professor theorizes in his book A Random Walk Down Wall Street that “a blindfolded monkey throwing darts at a newspaper’s financial pages could select a portfolio that would do just as well as one ...

Reasons to Sell China Stocks and ETFs :: The Market Oracle ...
In the aftermath of the $19 billion Agricultural Bank of China IPO, the dragon is struggling… and there are plenty of reasons to consider selling. A few months back we broke down the major China ETFs – FXI, HAO and PGJ. (You can access that piece here .) Today the technical and fundamental picture looks bearish for all three… The chart above is for the most popular of the three ETFs, the Xinhua China 25 (FXI:NYSE). The red line represents the 200-day exponential moving average, a sort of key waterline for bullish and bearish sentiment. FXI is below that waterline and struggling. After a sharp upward thrust in ... market research, surveys and trends
Europe Throws a Hail Mary Pass
In a 1975 playoff game, the Dallas Cowboys were nearly out of time and facing elimination from the playoffs, down 14-10 against a very good Minnesota Vikings team. The Cowboys future Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach had no very good options. He later said he dropped back to pass, closed his eyes and, as a good Catholic, said a Hail Mary and threw the ball as far as he could. Wide receiver Drew Pearson had to come back for the ball and, in a very controversial play, managed to catch the ball on his hip and stumble into the end zone. Angry Vikings fans threw trash onto the field, and one threw a whiskey ... market research, surveys and trends

is all the rage these days. The possibility of the U.S. slipping back into recession after a brief period of growth is a hot topic of late – and while such an occurrence is unlikely, pundits are feverishly declaring that it can’t and won’t happen.  Here are some of their reasons, some of which appear to strain credulity:  Double-dips are “rare.” Simon Hobbs of CNBC is a vigorous promoter of this idea, but let’s face it, the last 15 years of financial-market history is a veritable compendium things that no one expected to happen – LTCM, the financial panic, Lehman Brothers. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Talking Business - Hoping a Hail Mary Pass Connects -
He had begun the week agreeing to let Lehman Brothers go bankrupt, arguing that the government had to stop putting taxpayers’ money at risk. Then, midweek, he brokered a deal to rescue the American International Group with an $85 billion loan from taxpayers — arguing that the risk to the financial system was too high to allow the world’s biggest insurer to fail. Neither move had done anything to stop the financial tsunami. So on Friday morning, just as the markets were opening, Mr. Paulson unveiled the government’s latest attempt to stop the bleeding. Maybe it was because he was so tired, but there was ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Now they´re cooking with gas
The light went on in the shower — a fitting epiphany for the top executive of Lansing’s Board of Water and Light. BWL general manager J. Peter Lark made up his mind to propose a new, natural gas-powered cogeneration steam and power plant in REO Town while soaking wet. “Nine or 10 months ago, I was taking a shower, thinking of all the different things we had confronting the BWL at that time,” Lark said last week. “It just seemed to me that a combined cycle cogeneration plant would meet our needs at every available level.” The BWL is rolling out the plant as a multi-pronged problem solver: steam ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Stunts are no substitute for policy
It is becoming increasingly obvious as the election date nears that David Alward is less concerned about the people of New Brunswick than he is his own future. There continues to be no real Tory plan in place for the future of New Brunswick. What we’re increasingly seeing is an ill-conceived series of stunts designed to trick a person here or there into casting a vote in Mr. Alward’s favour in September. There appears to be no method to the Tory madness. Reeling from a series of gaffes including their three different stories about a taxpayer- funded trip for a campaign-style photo-op in Newfoundland, the Tories ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Asst. Secretary Henry Remarks on Hedge Funds and - United States ...
Good afternoon. It is a pleasure to be here with all of you. Thank you for the invitation to speak today. Before coming to Treasury, I spent the last 20 years on Wall Street, as an investment banker and also founder of investment organizations including a hedge fund business. This is my first public service position. And although I am truly enjoying my time at Treasury, I probably do not have to tell you that Washington is very different than Wall Street. So, in a sense, I feel very much at home addressing people like yourselves who manage money and whose livelihood is tied directly to the financial markets, asset allocation and ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

The essential problem with this strategy is it will not achieve the goal of providing liquidity. At the present point in time there is a reduction in liquidity due to three main reasons: A) Losses at hand - failure of some securities to pay income and devaluing the available capital to lend. (i.e. as P/Es constricted and earnings outlooks were reduced there was less money to lend). B) Uncertainty as to own capital requirements - A bank will not lend liquid cash to a corporate or another bank if doing so will place its solvency in question. C) Uncertainty as to the risk position and credit worthiness of the counterparties. ...
