• A China Bank Crisis? Not So Fast, Deutsche Bank Says

    Prominent hedge fund manager Kyle Bass' call that a China banking crisis is imminent is already getting push-back, with Deutsche Bank calling it unlikely and exaggerated. "We think the article basically referred to a hard-landing scenario, for which our economist only assigns 20 percent probability in 2017-19," China bank analysts at Deutsche Bank said in a note Thursday. Bass, who is famed as one of the few major investors to correctly call the U.S. subprime housing collapse that kicked off


  • Even Gold Bulls Underestimated 2016 Gain Now Topping Most Assets

    Even the combined brains of the biggest gold dealers, refiners and investment bankers failed to imagine just how much the precious metal would soar this year. Two months into 2016, prices have surged past three-quarters of the peak forecasts in a mid-January survey by the London Bullion Market Association, whose members operate in the largest spot market for the metal. Gold has outperformed every commodity this year, as well as most equity and bond markets, after falling for three straight years. Inve


  • 6 Medical Device Stocks to Treat the Bear Market Blues

    In this otherwise grim market, one industry that's poised to break through the shackles of the bears is the medical device industry, which was recently buoyed by news of the two-year suspension of the special tax on medical devices. According to the Congressional Budget Office, this tax suspension could translate to savings to the tune of $5 billion for the medical device industry. Taking a cue from this development, we've rounded up three top-quality stocks in the medical device industry that can


  • Gold Soars Above $1,200 as Fed Chief Signals Go-Slow on Rates

    Gold surged the most in a year as investors sought a haven from tumbling stock markets amid expectations that the Federal Reserve will delay raising interest rates. The metal jumped as much as 3.8 percent to a year high. The rout in European equities deepened after Fed Chair Janet Yellen on Wednesday suggested that the central bank might delay planned rate increases in response to recent turmoil in financial markets. Bullion has gained 17 percent this year, making it the best-performing commodity. The outlook


  • Canadian Energy Companies Selling off ‘Jewels in the Crown’ to Keep Oilsands Operations Afloat

    Faced with record low prices for heavy crude, Canadian energy companies are sacrificing other parts of their business to keep higher-cost oilsands production going and safeguard the billions already invested in these multi-decade projects. Companies including Husky Energy Inc, MEG Energy Corp and Pengrowth Energy Corp are selling assets or slowing light and conventional oil exploration and production, even as they forge ahead with oilsands projects that are in many cases bleeding money on every barrel. Al


  • Why Declining Chinese Oil Production Is Good for Global Prices

    China's role as a big oil consumer has become a crucial factor in energy markets in recent years. Now, its role as a major producer is gaining attention as well. China is among the world's top five oil producers, but its fields are growing depleted and are increasingly expensive to pump. The country's leading companies are choosing to leave more of their oil in the ground and some analysts now say Chinese oil output may have peaked. Cnooc Ltd., China's third-largest oil producer--which pro
