Investors who hold shares of Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD  ) probably feel pretty good lately.

With just a quick glance at its chart, Liquidmetal Technologies Inc. (OTCBB:LQMT) looks like little more than a tangled, indecisive mess. As you take a longer look at LQMT chart though, a modest bullish hint starts to appear. This may be one of the budding superstar stocks for Q4. For those unfamiliar with LQMT, the odd name isn’t a misnomer. Liquidmetal Technologies has developed coating technologies that are applied as a liquid, but when dry, become as hard as metal. The alloy can be used to coat armor-piercing bullets, golf clubs, medical instruments, and thousands of other items where a high-endurance coating would make it a higher-quality good. The company’s claim to fame, however, is the rumor that the liquid alloy technology is being used to encase Apple’s newest iPhones. That rumor was driven by an Apple design patent made public back on July 17th, and the stock jumped accordingly. … Continue reading

Rich Gill All happy brokers say similar things, but every unhappy broker is unhappy for a different reason. For some, it is the inordinate amount of time spent protecting their clients from things like “nuisance fees” (for example, account maintenance and check-writing fees), rate hikes and poor product selection. Most just want to give their clients the best service the industry has to offer, whether that involves providing transparent pricing and customized reporting or employing the latest technology in researching and making investment decisions. Some advisers are fed up with murky compensation programs, and rigid “one size fits all” compliance and operations solutions. In any case, there are lots of reasons to want to leave the wirehouses. No adviser escapes from this environment to become an entrepreneur simply by focusing on fleeing the negative. To be an entrepreneur, an adviser must be aiming for something better – the pursuit of … Continue reading

Although we don’t believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes — just in case they’re material to our investing thesis. What: Shares of Catamaran (NASDAQ: CTRX  ) , a pharmacy-benefits management and health care information technology services provider, jumped as much as 15% after the company announced a long-term deal with CIGNA (NYSE: CI  ) . So what: CIGNA and Catamaran announced on Monday that they’d be forming a 10-year partnership whereby Catamaran would process drug claims, manage inventory levels, and fill orders for CIGNA’s home-delivery pharmacy. The deal makes even more sense when you consider that Catamaran had been partnered with HealthSpring, a health-benefits provider that CIGNA purchased last year, so this should be a relatively seamless partnership. According to research firm BMO Capital Markets, this deal could add an additional $5.5 billion in revenue on top of … Continue reading
