No one should confuse stocks with bonds, but there's a case for valuing equities as if they were fixed-income securities. There are several caveats, of course, but that's always true with financial analysis. The question is whether there's anything to learn when it comes to analyzing stocks as would-be bonds? Yes, although it's not a silver bullet, nor is it helpful for short-term trading. And to the extent we do so, this valuation approach should be used simultaneously with other techniques. That said, there's something to be said for taking a page from the world of fixed-income when assessing the stock ...
diversified economies of Karachi and Punjab's urban centers, coexist with lesser developed areas in other parts of the country. 1 The economy has suffered in the past from decades of internal political disputes, a fast growing population, mixed levels of foreign investment, and a costly, ongoing confrontation with neighboring India . However, IMF -approved government policies, bolstered by foreign investment and renewed access to global markets, have generated solid macroeconomic recovery the last decade.

The New Yorker’s James Surowiecki looks at the comparison between debts in Greece and the states. “California and Greece share a fondness for dysfunctional politics and feckless budgeting. While American states are typically required to balance their budgets annually, that hasn�t stopped them from amassing a pile of long-term debt by issuing municipal bonds. And, like Greece and other E.U. countries, states have used accounting legerdemain to under-report the amount they owe, even while accumulating huge, unfunded pension obligations. Just as a default by Greece (whose bonds are held by many big European banks) would ... market research, surveys and trends
Demographics: The cue to Investing | Investing Contrarian
We are all familiar with the power that the ‘baby boomers’ have held sway over the North American economy for these past 50 years. Everything from modern marketing to pharmaceutical research (Viagra) has been shaped by their needs and wants. In fact, this area of study has come to be a well worn path for economist. So much so that there is a short hand to describe a most intriguing ratio: MY ratio which stands for the middle-aged to young ratio or simply Middle-Young. This ratio is key because in these two different stages of life, people have very different priorities which, aggregated as a great galloping herd, has an ... market research, surveys and trends


Wooden elephants and bachata beats: census ads try cultural deep ...
LOS ANGELES — Radio commercials blare ranchera tunes, beseeching Mexican-Americans to fill out their census forms. Print ads with a portrait of a Thai family with a carved elephant in the background implore Thais to do the same. So does a Congolese basketball hero in another. The ads scream stand up and be counted, and are designed to reach some of the most difficult to count communities across the nation. “We wanted to make sure that in addition to being ‘in language,’ we were also ‘in culture,’” said Raul Cisneros, chief of the 2010 Census publicity office. “We’ve got to count ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Capital Spectator: April 2010 Archives
this morning. Real GDP increased by 3.2% on an annualized basis in the first three months of 2010. That’s considerably lower than the 5.6% surge in the previous quarter. But no one expected the powerful momentum in Q4 2009 to continue. The question was (and remains): How much will the economy slow after the initial snapback from the Great Recession? With fiscal and monetary stimulus destined to fade, the economy faces a transition. For now, growth still has the upper hand. The latest numbers, albeit the first of three estimates, suggest that the expansion has a foothold. Encouraging as that is, there’s still some concern about ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

It was a time when those who knew what they were doing made great economic strides and the very nature of the depression itself was an economic boon for them.
