Don't Buy This Buffett Pick


Odds are that if you heard about a Warren Buffett pick trading near its 52-week low that had "amazed" Bill Gates, you'd be pretty interested in picking up shares for yourself. You might even rush out to do so once you got wind of the rumor that Buffett was looking to increase the size of his investment in the company.

When Commodities Attack!


You know about stocks and bonds, but there are a few other investment classes out there that most individuals don't think much about, especially as they relate to individual companies.

We can't say Mattel (NYSE: MAT) made it through the recession totally unscathed. In 2008, the company saw its margins get crunched and that was followed by a sales dip in 2009. Of course, the weakness Mattel experienced was nothing compared to what many other companies experienced, and through the tough times the company stayed solidly profitable and free-cash-flow-positive.

The Best Dividend Stocks of 2011


I love fat payouts from dividend stalwarts. In fact, I've recommended a couple that I called "dividend plays for a lifetime" for their strong competitive positions and hidden assets. Those two stocks -- Microsoft andMcDonald's -- are solid long-term dividend plays. But often, it can be more valuable to find higher-yielding stocks that are slower- growing, rather than a Microsoft that is fattening dividends at a prodigious clip.

Corcept May Have Hit Pay Dirt


After failing to show a statistically significant effect for treating the psychotic features of psychotic depression in three individual clinical trials, Corcept Therapeutics (Nasdaq: CORT) finally found something that its drug candidate, Corlux, is good at: treating Cushing's syndrome.
