Coinstar Earnings No Tragedy for Investors

Category : Business, Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — If you’re a current Coinstar investor Thursday’s earnings release must have felt like getting a DVD stuck halfway in the machine while running late on your way to work.

Coinstar’s stock increased about 6% from a year ago and remains in a bullish trend. Coinstar’s CEO Paul Davis announced revenue growth of 22%. While part of the perceived weakness looking forward is attributed to rental weakness, Coinstar and Redbox continue to mint mountains of coins.

At least most of the market cap losses appear to be baked in the cake at this point. Coinstar is currently valued with a price-to-earnings ratio of only 10. …

Spain in Spotlight for Coming Week

Category : Business

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — All eyes will be focused on Spain this weekend, and the events that transpire are likely to have the biggest impact on the direction U.S. stocks take in the coming week.

Eurozone officials are expected to discuss an aid package for Spain’s banks over the weekend.

“If they announce some kind of package that’s firm and fair, the market would rally,” said Adrian Day, president of Adrian Day Asset Management. “If they don’t, I don’t think it will fall a lot to be honest, because people have gotten used to people in Europe pushing things off.” …

Want Dividends? Try Individual Stocks Instead of ETFs

Category : Business, Stocks

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (TheStreet) — According to the StateStreet Global Advisors Web site the S&P 500 SPDR has a trailing yield of 1.98%. Reports on CNBC have it up near 2.25%. Either figure is greater than the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury, which yields 1.77%. It is rare when stocks yield more than the 10-year Treasury and no doubt increases the spotlight on dividend paying stocks.

Dividend-based ETFs first came on the scene in 2003 with the iShares DJ Dividend Select ETF and the SPDR S&P Dividend ETF and started to proliferate when fund provider WisdomTree created an entire product line devoted to dividend investing. Back then, I wrote articles on just about all of the dividend ETFs as they came out and offered this same caution on just about all of them: if anything serious were to happen to the financial sector then the dividend funds would get hit very hard as most of them are very heavily weighted in that sector. …

A Weitz Fund That Wins in Downturns

Category : Business

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Weitz Funds can boast about some strong long-term track records. During the past 15 years, Weitz Partners Value returned 9.7% annually, outdoing the S&P 500 by 3.6 percentage points and topping 97% of large blend funds, according to Morningstar. Weitz Value also produced stellar results, returning 8.8% and surpassing 98% of peers in the large value category.

But the Weitz funds are only for patient shareholders. Diehard value investors, the Weitz managers take stocks that have delivered disappointing earnings or fallen out of favor. As a result, the funds sometimes trail the markets for long periods. In 2008, both Weitz funds lagged most of their peers.

For many investors, the best choice may be one of the company’s younger funds, Weitz Partners III Opportunity (WPOIX). Partners III outdid most peers in 2008. During the past five years, the fund topped Weitz Partners Value and Weitz Value by 3 percentage points annually.

Market Preview: When Doves Lie

Category : Business

Updated from 6:56 p.m. ET with information on after-hours trading.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — And that’s the power of Apple.

What may have more to do with whether stocks can build on this rally though is how the market ultimately interprets the mixed message sent by the Federal Reserve on Wednesday afternoon as the central bank’s members telegraphed growing hawkishness but good, old Ben Bernanke remained his dovish self during the press conference.
