June Free Stock Pick of the Month – Halliburton Company (NYSE: HAL)

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Another value investment and spring stock pick that I am extremely hot on is the oilfield & drilling services titan, Halliburton Company (Current Price: 30.25 – NYSE: HAL – Current Quote).

Trading at just under $31/share, Halliburton is becoming extremely oversold and is currently available at an excellent price. Despite the recent dip in oil & natural gas prices, worldwide energy demand continues to rise over the long haul and Halliburton is one well-run company that will continue grow.

Halliburton has dropped along with big oil recently (parallel with the recent dip in oil & natural gas prices); but this is one company that we think will rebound at a tremendous pace; due to the fact that (unlike most of the Big Oil majors), Halliburton’s earnings/profits aren’t directly attached to price of oil & gas.

They netted over 627 million in the first quarter of 2012 and they are currently selling at a price almost 50% below their 52-week high. With a PE ratio of 9.14, an EPS of 3.19, and a Market Cap of almost 29 Billion, Halliburton is currently trading at 8 times the company’s earnings.

To put this into perspective, most fortune 500 companies will trade around 13-14 times their earnings (Note: The hot Social Networking IPO company, Facebook (NASDAQ: FB – Quote) is currently trading at price 100 times their earnings).

We are predicting and shooting for a target price of $40.00 (or a 30-35% increase) in the next 2 years. Halliburton still has fantastic earnings and plenty of room to grow.  And, once Oil and Natural Gas prices begin rising again (which they will eventually do), we see Hallibuton growing at a pace faster than the industry.

Halliburton Company (HAL) is a buy up to 33.25, especially for investors who are seeking long-term, value investments and want to put their money into a well-run company with continuous profits (even smaller investors).

(Note: I remain LONG on HAL at my purchase price of 31.50).

Hot Stock Tips: Win at the Belmont Stakes with Empire Resorts Stock (NYNY)

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hot Stock Tips: Win at the Belmont Stakes with Empire Resorts Stock (NYNY) – The 2012 Belmont Stakes is expected to be one of the most attended and most watched horse racing events in the history of the sport. Here at Make Easy Money 365 though, we are a lot more interested in what is going to happen on the stock market, and we think that we have a hot stock tip on Empire Resorts (NASDAQ: NYNY) that could end up being an explosive stock to buy right now, while the race is still over two weeks away!

Empire Resorts is a company that deals with horse racing in specific, and it also deals with video game machines. It is true that a relatively small percentage, about 15% or so, of the company’s earnings are tied to horse racing. However, there is a huge difference at the Belmont Stakes when a horse is running for the Triple Crown and when he isn’t. This is the first time since 2008 that a horse is going to be running for the biggest prize in the sport of kings, as I’ll Have Enough looks to do what no horse has done since 1978 when Affirmed captured all three jewels of the Triple Crown.

Empire Resorts is a stock and a company that truly took a beating when the economy started to dip. We have to admit that this isn’t the best long-term stock in the world, as we have seen Empire Resorts drop from the $50/share range down to the $3.50/share range from 1995 until 1997. It has been as volatile as could be in several instances along the way as well, most recently dropping from around $30/share to where it sits right now at $1.99/share. That being said, now is the time to pounce on this stock, at least for the next few weeks, as it is a position that we think is going to at least double, if not triple in that period of time.

We also have to remember that it isn’t just Belmont Racetrack itself that is going to benefit from all of the action that is coming in on the Belmont Stakes this year. Goodness knows that the New York Racing Association (NYRA), that has already almost declared bankruptcy once in the last few years, needs the influx of money and the revenue from this race to overcome tons of losses. However, every single casino, off track betting (OTB), and dog track should be seeing a boost in business thanks to I’ll Have Another. Admission fees to these establishments, such as the Monticello Gaming and Raceway owned by Empire Resorts, should be upped during this time as well, especially as we wind down closer to race day.

This clearly isn’t a stock position that we want to be in for the long haul, as this is a no-dividend stock and is one that has been all over the board for the last 2+ decades. That being said, the time might be there right now to take a short-term stance on a bit of a risky company, especially if you aren’t adverse to the idea of taking some gambles.

But why not? Millions will gamble on the Belmont Stakes in 2012. Whether you like horse racing or not, getting involved in Empire Resorts is a way that you can tap into the market as well and try to make your money, long before the horses take to the track on June 9th!

Buy General Electric Stock, as GE Stock Price Sure To Rise

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Buy General Electric Stock, as GE Stock Price Sure To Rise: The DOW Jones has had three straight incredibly strong days as we rally towards the start of November 2011. However, with the rise of the DOW Jones, there are some common stocks that just have not made their way to the forefront once again after the brutal depression crippled them. Today’s hot stock tip is for General Electric stock (NYSE: GE – Current Quote), as there is just nothing fundamentally wrong with this company, and there is no reason for the stock price to have stayed as low as it has over the past few years. It’s clear that you’re not just investing for the short term when you invest in GE stock. This is a company that has been around seemingly since the dawn of time, and for as long as the country needs power, GE is going to be there to provide it. We’re still probably decades away from solar power being a legitimate threat to this company, and even if it did, we are sure that the powers that be at GE would do whatever it takes to make sure that their stock doesn’t become totally worthless. Sure, if you had a piece of this stock in 1980 at $1.00 per share, you’d be in pretty darn nice shape right now, even after the depression struck. This stock has always paid a decent quarterly dividend (currently right around 3.5%), and its price is up 1600% over the course of just over 30 years.

Of course, the real nosedive came in two stages for GE. The first came in 2002 and 2003, when the price of this stock went from right around $60 per share down to roughly $24 per share. Things rebounded until 2007, when prices dipped from $41 per share below $10 per share.

At that point, the DOW Jones was down in the dumps, and at the low point for GE stock, the exchange was in the 8,000 point range. Now, the DOW is up near 12,000 again, and it’s a wonder why GE’s stock hasn’t come back up at least into the $20 range in price. Generally speaking, earnings reports have been right on line, though not particularly spectacular over the past four quarters. Yet, in that time, with the DOW Jones mostly going in a bullish direction, we have seen a jump from $16 per share up to nearly $22 per share, but back down to the $16.45 that the stock closed at on Monday afternoon. The bottom line of what you can expect from GE is simple. This stock will historically earn you that 3.0 percent dividend and a growth that is generally on par with that of the DOW Jones. We’re still puzzled as to why investors aren’t pushing the price of this stock up at this point, and we think that this is the perfect time to buy for the long term if you are looking to invest in one of the sturdier companies in the American economy.

After iPhone4 Launch, AAPL Stock Quote & Apple Stock Prices Too High

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

After iPhone4 Launch, AAPL Stock Quote & Apple Stock Prices Too High: Inevitably, you or one of your friends has bought an iPhone4, which came out this week. Sure, that iPhone is going to be the next in the big time wave of technology that will infuse society both in America and all over the world. It’s no shock that the AAPL stock quote got as high as $422.86 per share and that it closed as high as it has ever closed at $422.00 per share. The increase of the stock has been remarkable, but we tend to think that Apple stock prices are just too high at this point.

Apple Stock is a fantastic long term investment to make. We aren’t going to deny that fact. There is no way that in the next decade that this company is going to lose money. However, we have to be realistic about some things right now.

The whole wave of using the internet on your phone and all of this advanced technology is a market that a whole ton of companies are involved in. We all know about the resignation of Steve Jobs and his subsequent tragic death in the weeks that followed, which is also going to hurt this company. That being said, there’s nothing that says that the next big technological advance might not come via BlackBerry or some other company that proves to be a competitor of Apple.

There could be as many as 4,000,000 iPhone4s that end up getting sold, potentially just in this week. However, though analysts are bullish about this stock, we aren’t all that optimistic.

The economy has been stellar over the course of the past few weeks as well, which has also helped out AAPL stock prices. That being said, the general feeling right now in the economy is that the DOW Jones is overpriced at a close of $11,644.49. The coveted $12,000 barrier hasn’t been reached in quite some time, and the economy is still quite a ways away from where it was before the recession really hit.

We’re also very interested to see what the Apple dividend share is going to be in the near future. The team hasn’t paid a dividend in years, and investors who are seeing all of the profits for this company are calling for some sort of a dividend, much like some of the other fantastic stocks on the DOW Jones and the NASDAQ. The fact that dividends don’t seem to be on the horizon worries us as well, and until we see this company start to pay some dividends, we’re going to shy away from AAPL stock.

If you’re a short term investor, you’ll probably be able to make some money on AAPL stock over the course of the next few days. Long term investors will be making money on AAPL prices, but we tend to think that the boat has been missed. There are going to be better investments to make on the stock market to make than this.

Hot Stock Tips, Stock Market Tips – Ingersoll-Rand (IR)

Tags: , , , , , ,

Hot Stock Tips – Ingersoll-Rand (IR): It was a rough end of the week for Ingersoll-Rand owners, as their stock plummeted to two-year lows. However, for this week, our expert stock advisors are suggesting that now is the time to buy into this stock and hope for the best, both in the short run and in the long term.

Ingersoll-Rand provides air conditioners and lock, mostly to the American public. This is a company that has been around for a tremendous amount of years, and it is one of those blue collared American companies that has absolutely no fear of totally going bankrupt any time in the near future.

Sure, the industrial market has taken an absolute beating over the course of the last few weeks, and that has been the sector that has really caused the massive decline in the DOW Jones and the S&P 500. Many pundits think that this is going to be an ongoing trend, especially in this industry as 3rd quarter earnings reports begin to come out.

Those reports for Ingersoll-Rand aren’t expected to be good when they come out, but there has already been a huge compensation for its losses. Investors are expecting low consumer reports to drop this company’s profit down to 77 cents to 80 cents per share, which is quite a ways off from the 91 cents per share that the company was hoping for.

However, the market has just totally been overcompensated due to this already. On Friday alone, shares of IR went down from almost $32 per share to close at $28.09. The stock hit a 52 week low at $26.13 before rebounding nearly $2.00 per share at the end of the day rally. That being said, the prudent buyer of this stock got in while it was still in the $26-$27 per share range, a dramatic one day swing.

Friday’s drop of over 12 percent was the biggest one day drop this stock has had since “Black Monday” in 1987.

That being said, we absolutely still see some value in this stock. Thompson Reuters still considers this a positive trending stock, while Standard & Poor’s still has it ranked as a *** stock.

When the market dropped out, Ingersoll-Rand stock could be had at as low as $11 per share. That number has obviously still rebounded, but the high point of this stock was in the $52 range over the course of the last year, and the company hadn’t gotten back to its high point of around $57 per share in 2007.

With Ingersoll-Rand, you’re also getting a relatively tiny dividend. No, the estimated 1.71 percent dividend yield isn’t lighting the world on fire, but just the fact that this company is still paying out dividends, something that most aren’t doing any longer. That dividend will more than make up any slight losses that this stock may have in the months to come, but we do think that this is a stock that is going to rebound this week and get back into the $30 per share range, where it will likely level off once again.
