In what has been an extremely iffy year for the E&P sector, Noble Energy (NYSE:NBL) is an outlier in many respects. Not only has the stock done quite well over the past year, but that’s even with a gas-heavy reserve base and exposure to the Gulf of Mexico two things that the market has really soured on in general.

He noted that improving economies were leading to lower macroeconomic risks. Fiscal drag is lessening in the U.S., Europe is coming out of recession, Japan’s deflationary headwinds are diminishing and China appears to be stabilizing. “In the U.S., better business sentiment on top of firming consumption will likely enhance the odds of a noticeable increase in capital spending enabling a somewhat stronger growth trajectory,” Doll said. “The transition to self-sustaining growth will provide a much needed acceleration … Continue reading

If you’re like most investors, you’ve probably never heard of Euro Tech Holdings Co. Ltd. (NASDAQ:CLWT). I have a confession to make – until a few days ago, I hadn’t heard of it either. Yet, in just the few short days I’ve had to get to know CLWT, I’ve come to the conclusion that if you’re the kind of person who would be just as comfortable taking an extra $1000 to the casino as you would be in putting that money into a brokerage account and putting into a crazy stock, then Euro Tech Holdings may be worth a shot to you. CLWT is, in simplest terms, a water-treatment and testing-equipment company. Though it’s only an $8.8 million company, it can serve the proverbial big boys in the industry. In fact, Euro Tech Holdings sold $21.6 million worth of goods last year, and for all intents and purposes, broke even … Continue reading
