B Money’s Stock Watch List 2012-02-12

Hey everyone, the moment you have been waiting for all day, B Money’s weekly stock picks. Even with some of the pull back last week in the general market, many of the stocks on last weeks watch list were still gaining ground. We also mentioned that the market would start seeing some pull back last week, and that too was confirmed. That being said, the near future will be good for stocks due to the monetary easing of all major currencies by their governments. If you have not began researching alternatives to paper currencies, it is suggested that you look into gold and silver. Many financial “gurus” believe 10-15% of your cash should be in metals as a hedge to inflation and monetary easing. I suggest GoldandSilver.com as one resource.

Natural Gas Prices Up: Is There Still Time to Buy?

Natural gas has gotten a much needed boost over the last couple weeks, rising over 15% after a catastrophic drop in the last year. The rally came in reaction to Chesapeake Energy’s (CHK) announcement that it was cutting capital expenditures by more than 2/3′s from last year, suggesting lower supplies. In addition, President Obama suggested in his State of the Union address that he’d seek to use more natural gas as a bridge between crude and renewables, suggesting stronger demand.

Apple’s ‘Secret’ Recipe for Success

The power of Apple’s business model was on full display this week, when the company reported astonishingly strong fiscal first-quarter results. The company’s shares surged on Wednesday, bringing Apple’s market cap to over $416 billion, just a hair below ExxonMobil’s as the world’s most valuable company.

In his new book, Inside Apple, Fortune’s Adam Lashinsky delves far beyond one quarter and seeks to understand what makes Apple so successful, and so unique. His conclusion: “Think Different” isn’t just a marketing slogan.

Gold Rises to 7-Week High as Dollar Alternative

Gold climbed to an almost seven-week high in New York on speculation that the Federal Reserve‘s pledge to keep interest rates low will drive the dollar lower and boost demand for precious metals as an alternative asset.

Futures rose 2.1 percent yesterday after the Fed said its benchmark interest rate will stay low until at least late 2014. Low rates mean gold is more competitive against assets that pay dividends or interest. The dollar dropped as much as 0.5 percent against the euro today. Holdings of gold in exchange-traded funds jumped 0.4 percent yesterday and U.S. The U.S. Mint’s January gold coin sales are the most in a year.
