My Early Morning Appearance On CNBC Asia

I had the pleasure last night or I should say early this morning to be interviewed by the lovely Chloe Cho of CNBC ASIA in Singapore about my outlook on the markets.

I thought you might enjoy this clip watching this lively exchange on Chloe's "Capital Connection" show. The delightful Carolin Roth who also anchors the show out of London asked me a very interesting question, about a well known stock. My answer may surprise you just as it surprised Chloe and Carolin.

Here is the link it will take you to the clip I am talking about. You may have to view a brief commercial coming from CNBC (not us) before the clip plays.

All the best,

Google, Microsoft, and what the Dell?

The soap opera for Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) continues with Michael Dell and Carl Ichan, the principal figures in this financial showdown. It's too early to say what's going to happen, but my money will be with Carl Ichan on this one. Michael Dell has had this time with the company and the stock which is what shareholders thought didn't do well under his stewardship. On the other hand, Carl Ichan has done very with his investments and has a track record of being a "disruptive force in the boardroom".

NEWS FLASH: Just this morning it was announced we are going to have to wait until the 24th of July when everyone is going to reconvene to have another meeting on taking Dell private.

Change equals opportunity and Mr. Ichan does represent change. He also has a successful track record and is holding substantial stakes in companies like, RJR Nabisco, TWA, Texaco, Phillips Petroleum, Western Union, Gulf & Western, Viacom, Uniroyal, Dan River, Marshall Field's, E-II (Culligan and Samsonite), American Can, USX, Marvel Comics, Revlon, Imclone, Federal-Mogul, Fairmont Hotels, Blockbuster, Kerr-McGee, Time Warner, Motorola, Netflix and Herbalife.

Can Mr. Ichan turn Dell around? Fortunately or unfortunately we are going to have to wait until the 24th of July to find out the fate of Dell.

So what are you waiting for? Let's get started right away!

After the bell, Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is expected to announce earnings of $10.78 per share vs $10.12 per share last year. I will be looking at that stock today and doing a quick analysis of what I think is going to happen after the earnings are announced.

Likewise, Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) is expected to announce earnings $0.75 per share vs $0.67 per share last year. I will also take a look at that stock today and see if Microsoft has what it takes to compete in the new mobile world.

Enjoy the video, and every success in your own trading.

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, co-founder of MarketClub with your mid-day market update for Thursday, the 7th of March.

With the FED pouring $4.25 billion into the system every trading day, it's no wonder that stocks are moving higher. When this artificial demand and false sense of security stops, what will happen to the markets? No one can tell for sure, but we cannot keep pumping money into this market forever. Yesterday, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia President, Charles Plosser, said “We should begin to taper our asset purchases with an aim of ending them before year-end" and he believes that the central bank should slow the pace of its bond purchases because the potential costs from more stimulus outweigh the benefits.

When the FED turns off the money spigot, watch out!! That's when we get to see if the real economy has any clothes on. Until then, happy days are here again and the bull bandwagon is moving higher courtesy of the FED. Continue reading "Today's Video Newsletter: 3 New Stocks Join the Bull Parade"
