Cano Petroleum (CFW) is a classic merger arbitrage/special situation with a tremendous margin of safety and substantial near-term upside potential. Given the size of the current spread (roughly 25%) and the fact that this company is currently trading hands at a discount to its liquidation value, not to mention that (1) the buyer is legitimate (2) the strategic rationale for the deal is sound (3) financing isn’t an issue and (4) there are no regulatory issues that could potentially derail the deal at this point, we think that the stars are aligning for bargain hunting investors to generate spectacular returns with relatively low ...
of a business entity represents the original capital paid into or invested in the business by its founders. It serves as a security for the creditors of a business since it cannot be withdrawn to the detriment of the creditors.

Investing in Stocks: It's Not as Bad as You Think
That’s something you hear a lot these days, and with good reason. The Standard & Poor’s 500 sits at around 1060, a threshold it first crossed in the beginning of 1998. In other words, that index of stocks in 500 industry-leading American companies — companies like ExxonMobil, Johnson & Johnson, Coke, and McDonald’s — has gone up and down a lot over the past 12 or so years, but has ended up in the same place where it started. So you might think that if you invested $10,000 in the S&P 500 through something like the Vanguard 500 index fund back in the spring of 1998, you might still have just ... market research, surveys and trends
Defining a Long-Term Investment in the Stock Market | Full of Articles
For some "long term" would mean holding a stock position over the weekend. For others, it may mean holding a security for at least 1 year for the purpose of declaring a long-term capital gain, thus saving on taxes. The rigid definition of a long-term investment in the stock market would be holding a security for a minimum of 5 years, to as long as 30 years. I’m going to tell you my definition of a long-term investment in a security by telling you a story. A true story! My Mother worked as a teller in a small bank in Dover, New Jersey.

Investing in Preferred Shares Dividend Stocks :: The Market Oracle ...
But today I want to tell you about another class of stock that some income investors gravitate toward: “Preferred” shares. As the name suggests, preferred stock gives its owner a leg up on common shareholders, especially when it comes to dividends. Preferred shareholders may receive larger payments, and companies are required to pay these dividends before distributions are made to common shareholders. This DOES NOT mean the dividend is guaranteed. It simply means that when it comes down to the wire, preferred dividends are going in the mail before common dividends. Should things get really bad, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Investor Alert: Investing in a Bankrupt Company: A High Risk Venture
The SEC and FINRA are issuing this Alert because we believe there may be widespread misunderstanding by investors that stock in the “old” General Motors Corporation (now known as Motors Liquidation Company) is related to the “new” General Motors Company (new GM). FINRA halted trading in old GM (which had been using the GMGMQ trading symbol) on July 10, 2009, and has since issued a new ticker symbol for the old GM stock—MTLQQ—to avoid having it confused with the new GM, which currently has no publicly traded securities. This Alert also reminds investors that holding shares of any company ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

What are the risks involved while investing in new shares in a ...
There are risks involved in any investment - risks that the return will be lower than expected and risks that some or all of the money invested (the capital) will not come back.

Some forms of investment, like bank deposits, are widely recognised as low risk but they usually give lower returns. Generally speaking, shares are higher-risk than deposits, debt securities and property. But they also offer the prospect of much higher returns, especially over the longer term. The risks in share investing are closely ...
