Investing in Warrants

investing in warrants special research report Photo by
I have been reading a lot of finance things in accordance with increasing my financial and investing knowledge and I came across this type of investment (if I may call it that since warrants offer no interest or dividend payments to the holder). So I decided to do a few shot posts in what they are and how they work. Basically warrants are investments that give the holder the right to buy and sell a specified number of the issuing company’s securities before a specified time in the future and at a specified price that is normally higher than the current price of the security to be bought at the time of issuance. These securities ...
that entitles the holder to buy stock of the issuing company at a specified price, which can be higher or lower than the stock price at time of issue. Warrants and Options are similar in that the two contractual financial instruments allow the holder special rights to buy securities. Both are discretionary and have expiration dates. The word Warrant simply means to "endow with the right", which is only slightly different to the meaning of an Option. Warrants are frequently attached to bonds or preferred stock as a sweetener , allowing the issuer to pay lower interest rates or dividends. They can be used to enhance the ...
How do stock warrants work?
A warrant, like an option, gives the holder the right but not the obligation to buy an underlying security at a certain price, quantity and future time. However, unlike an option, an instrument of the stock exchange, a warrant is issued by a company. The security represented in the warrant (usually share equity) is delivered by the issuing company instead of an investor holding the shares. Companies will often include warrants as part of a new-issue offering to entice investors into buying the new security. A warrant can also increase a shareholder’s confidence in a stock, if the underlying value of the security actually ... market research, surveys and trends - What a Week in the Wonderful World of Warrants!
Every investor has a wide array of asset classes and investment vehicles to consider - stocks; bonds; commodities; mutual, closed-end and exchange traded funds; options; LEAPS; etc. and the relatively unknown category called 'warrants'.

Our Worst Nightmare....the Housing Bubble | Dudley Baker ...
Another one of my long term subscribers wrote me recently with his insights on how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have transmogrified the offering of simple mortgages into something one would expect to find at a Las Vegas casino. Their financial innovations have facilitated the growth of home ownership on one hand but have set up America for a financial meltdown should the Fed increase interest rates beyond the tipping point. All this begs the questions "Are we there yet?" "How many more increases before the house of cards come tumbling down?" With at least two more increases expected in the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Will Golden Gate Get It Wrong by Investing In Zale (ZLC)?
For the benefit of day traders and speculators, Zale stock continued to rise from its recent low of $1.39 to $1.77 in late afternoon trading. Buoyed in part by slightly better market performance, the churn in Zale value was probably due to the company’s announcement that Citibank would continue to provide third party credit card financing for the company’s U.S. stores, at least for the near term.  In an SEC filing, Zale said it had paid the balance of the $1.13 million because of an earlier shortfall in the company’s guaranteed minimum credit sales. Citi also said the company owed and additional $336,000 due to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Finance: Investing Guide
Most companies issue stock to raise capital. Each share of stock represents part ownership in a corporation. With common stock ownership comes the opportunity to vote on corporate matters. Ordinarily each shareholder has one vote for each share held. This voting right is one of the ways in which common stock is different from preferred stock. The other major difference pertains to dividends. A dividend is a payment, usually in cash, but occasionally in stock, made by a firm to its shareholders. Dividends are usually paid quarterly or semiannually. The boards of directors determine dividends on common stocks. The potential for ...
