    Stock suggestions for US market

    Have you got any ideas for the US market? Anyone trading online from Thailand? I'm not looking for day trading stuff but stuff you think will move over the next few years or longer. What have you bought recently also? Thoughts?

    Im no expert but with the to $ exchange rate it would be as good a time as any to invest in US stocks if youre holding sterling.Hard to predict whats going to move over then next few years,look at Bear Stearns and what happened to them.

    Well, thanks for the response Melvbot. Eventually thinks will change I would guess unless "developed" countries can go backwards. I wish I were holding sterling. i have some cash inthe US that's it. So I don't have a lot of options right now. But I have no debt just cash in the bank. Most posters here on teak are Brits or others so I probably won't get too many responses to this question. I do appreciate yours though.

    Just by accident I bumped into this stock: FSLR.
    FSLR: Basic Chart for FIRST SOLAR, INC. - Yahoo! Finance

    First Solar is out of control. If you bought it last year at 24 dollars a share you'd be at 276 dollars a share today! Nice! Solar energy seems to be getting the most attention as oil prices go up.

    Alternative energies are probably a sound buy at the moment, as long as the fundamentals look good and they got some contracts in the pipeline, not just a patent and a prayer.

    Check out the Motley Fool website, good info there.

    If you are looking real long-term, oil shale is a decent risk/reward factor. Bio fuels will take up a lot of the usage (eventually) but there will be a large petroleum based industry for ever.

    Look for a company that is generating cash today with good prospects for the future. Canada is a good place to start looking, there are some stocks that can be traded through American brokers. There are a couple of Canadian stocks that are currently producing from shale with different technologies. One of them also has interests in producing oil wells in South America.

    Due diligence and the understanding of the technologies is paramount.

    Other areas of interest are:
    Seed companies
    fertilizer companies
    Food processors


    Just a few to keep you busy... lol

    I couldn't agree more. My money has been on The Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan for some while now.

    With more and more land being taken up by industrialisation, roads and housing, and with more food being consumed by developing countries, we will need to grow more food on less land and those companies currently producing fertiliser will make small fortunes. Potash is tomorrow's oil and one company controls the world's supply......

    Mine too but its just taking off again after its correction, possibly a bit too late to jump on that one.

    However, Mosaic (MOS) has a little further to correct back to 50 dma and i reckon 110$ would be a great entry point. Mosaic could well perform the same as POT.

    Check out Intrepid (IPI) and Agrium (AGU) for further fertilizer plays

    My father paid 10 pound 40 years ago in a fertilizer company so he could get the share holders discount as he was a farmer who purchased fertilizer.

    Sold it 4 weeks ago for almost $50,000.

    ^ drunk already so early in the morning ? inflation is a growth killer, oil at 120 USD is not cheap, it's a shock, like we had in the 1970s, see how it play in the next few months and years after, prices will triple, and yet salaries will not always follow

    you think the early 80s were bad, think again

    Well it's 4 pm here but no I haven't had anything to drink.

    I believe in Peak oil. I believe it is here now and I believe very soon people will be saying "remember oil when it was $120 - how cheap was that"

    ^ there is no evidence that it is the case, do you frankly believe that the current oil surge is something more than pure speculations ? demand didn't surge 500% overnight, it's a fucking myth, China and India are not putting pressure on real demand, but speculators are

    There is no evidence? Where should I start?

    Are you kidding me? Stop burying your head in the sand.

    ^ I am sure there is something I am missing, but so far I am not convinced that peak oil is there,

    Guess we agree to disagree then.

    Will be interesting to return to this thread in a few years time.

    This is NOT a recco to buy, but in this case check out Connacher Oil. Interesting co. with operating cash-flow and a refinery in the US for asphalt.

    E. G.

    Edit: changed profits to cash-flow..... brain cramp while posting the original

    Look for signs that US house prices have stabilized, any entry point now could get ugly as the markets right now have recovered with the exception of financials and real estate. I still think the indexes are in for a pretty steep fall at the back end of the year when the market realises once and for all that the recession caused by housing will drag down earnings and stock prices for another 2 or 3 years.

    Well I bought these for 96 cents 3 weeks ago and they are now hovering around $1.20, so far so good.
