Tesla +422,1% (1YR)

Coca Cola`s (KO) Global volume rose 1% during Q4, they told us in their reports yesterday. They have a solid growth for its Powerade brand in North America. Beverages are still doing it well. Coca Cola is still a dominant consumer beverage company, trades at a forward PE of 15,4 and offers a dividend yield of close to 3%.


Market cap of $167B with revenues of $48B and a gross margin in excess of 60%. Net income of $9B. They have a massive distribution network and are able to distribute products globally to any corner of the world.


Zynga (ZNGA) was trading at $14,39 in March 2, 2012. It jumped +5,75% yesterday, now trading at $5,15. Zynga said they will cut their workforce by 15%. On top of that, they are buying NaturalMotion for $527 million. Is this the year Zynga makes a comeback?


Remember in 2012 when the company bought OMGPOP. The rival game maker slowly died and Zynga shut it down only one year after buying it. Will the latest purchase of NaturalMotion share the same fate?


There ain`t no doubt that 2013 was the year for Tesla (TSLA) and Elon Musk. They had a massive stock growth, media coverage, and everybody was talking about the «new» car. Elon Musk is often compared to Steve Jobs due to his innovation.


The Model S is an incredible success with their technology, safety, luxury and EV. When you look at the stock price for Tesla compared to the company’s true value, I belive 2014 will be something different from 2013.


Don`t get me wrong. I like the car and I am bullish in the long run, but sometimes in the long term bullish trend channel, we will see some corrections. The price of the stock has outpaced the progress that the company has made.

Dividend Yield

Some investors are looking for technology stocks with high growth. You can look for them in stock screens and search for dividend paying characteristics. If you are looking for dividend income and act like a value investor, then you can look for Dividend Yield.

This Dividend Yield number tells you what percentage return for example Coca Cola pays out to shareholders. Older companies like Coca Cola will normally pay out higher percentage than younger companies like for example Twitter.

You calculate like this:

Dividend Yield = annual dividend per share / stock’s price per share

Let`s say a stock trades at $100, and the dividend Yield is 3%. Annual dividend is $3.

($3/$100 = 0,03).

To be in the market and invest money in different markets is like a college class that never ends. As an investor you need to monitor existing stocks and always be on the look for new and great opportunities.

Now it is a good time to check your stock portfolio before the year ends. I will write about that later. News today: ADP non-farm employment change, and trade balance at 8:15am, ISM Non-Manufactoring PMI, and New home sales at 10.00am, Crude Oil inventories at 10.30am.
