Transocean LTD.  (NYSE:RIG) – An Offshore drilling contractor. Transocean of who owns or operates mobile offshore drilling units, inland drilling barges, and many other assets utilized in the suppport of offshore drilling activities on a Worldwide Basis. Transocean also Specializes i technically demanding segments of the offshore drilling business, which includes harsh environmental drilling, and deepwater drilling services.

Since 10/31/2011 Transocean hit a High of $59.24 of which then resulted in a downtrend to a New 52 week Low of $38.21 right before the New Year. However since the New Year there has been a turnaround and a bounce back in share price up over 18% close to $7.00 a share trading today up 1% at $45.15.

Currently I Rate this Company a HOLD. Not only does Transocean have a big dividend at 0.79 a share but could see a decline in the dividend this coming year. This may mark for many to want to sell off, however if you are a long term investor you may want to wait out the storm, and hold onto this investment as there are many Consensus Analyst Price Target at or above $60.00 a share.

Currently I own a Long Term Position in Transocean (RIG).

Chimera Investment Corporation (CIM) – Is not a buy, especially for the ones looking to make a quick buck, unless you are a long term investor stay clear of this stock!!!!
As analysis continue to come out, and say that CIM is a buy because of its Yield, and High Dividend.
With the Federal Reserve announcing it will continue to push for Long Term Interest rates lower this will crush Chimera.
In the past 52 weeks CIM has traded as high as $4.36, and as low as $2.62.
Not only has CIM lowered its Dividend during this year Span. The Stock is Trading at $2.61 under its 52 week LOW, and is at its Lowest hitting a Low that has not been Seen since March 20th, 2009!
I Would not be Surprised if this Stock Tumbles Down under $2.00.
If it Drops under $2.00 and Under, This would Than be a Stock I would look into Buying as a LONG TERM Investment.
Other than that SELL SELL SELL.

Brigham Exploration Company (BEXP) – of which  engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas in the United States. The company owns property interests in the Onshore Gulf Coast consisting of the Vicksburg trend in Brooks County, Texas. Frio trend in and around Matagorda County, Texas. (BEXP) also has joint venture interests in southern Louisiana. Brigham Exploration also holds interests in Hunton Trend and Granite Wash Trend in the Anadarko Basin,Powder River Basin and Williston Basin in the Rocky Mountains. As of December 31, 2010, it had approximately 600,601 gross and 364,309 net leasehold acres in the Williston Basin. As of December 31, 2010, it proved reserves totaled 66.8 million barrels of oil equivalent. Approximately 78% of its proved reserves are crude oil and it operates approximately 81% of its proved reserves.

Brigham Exploration Company (BEXP) of which closed on Friday 9/2/2011 at $27.92 is currently a vary undervalued stock in my opinion.  With (BEXP) 52 week high at $37.87 there is $10.00 upside potential. Not to mention on Thursday Raymond James (RJF) upgraded from outperform to “Strong Buy”. Price targets have been ranging anywhere from $35.00-$41.00. The fact is currently (BEXP) is trading $2.00 under its  50-day moving average is $29.61 and $2.50 under 200-day moving average of $31.07.

Lastly back on August 8th, Brigham Exploration reported $0.60 earnings per share (EPS) for the previous quarter, beating the Thomson Reuters consensus estimate of $0.29 EPS by $0.31. Revenue soared 120.5% on a year-over-year basis.
Currently I am announcing a PoulTrend Alert as of 9/2/2011 at $29.50.  My Price target is at $37.00, and I could easily see this being eclipsed in the next 2 months. I currently have (BEXP) rated at a BUY BUY BUY,HOLD HOLD HOLD, and I am LONG (BEXP)

Disclosure- Currently I hold no positions in Brigham Exploration (BEXP), however plan to initiate a position in the next 72 hours.

The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) main focuses are in providing consumer packaged goods. P & G’s products are sold in more than 180 countries primarily through mass merchandisers, grocery stores, membership club stores, drug stores and high-frequency stores, the neighborhood stores,and developing markets. P&G currently has around 80 on the ground operations. Last reported approximately 16% of revenue comes from Wal-Mart Stores. With Procter & Gamble closing at $63.09, and at Pre-Market this morning floating around $62.66 this may be a solid morning to get some P&G and add them to your portfolio(LONG). With the emerging markets soon to be P&G next big thing there is no question that they still have area for growth and improvement. One of there biggest products of the global market is toothpaste. With an Estimated 70% of the Brazil Market, 80% of the Mexico,and huge Gains in the Asia Market as well, there is no wonder analysis believe possible growth with stay 9% the next 5 years plus. Not to mention with 16% of their revenue coming from Wal-Mart, this could easily grow to 20% plus if  Wal-Mart continues to stay the king of the retail world. Not to mention long term, they pay a solid Dividend at 0.52 a QT or $2.04 a year, and a Yield of 3.33%.

I Recommend P & G at $62.00 and under.

Ratings-Buy,HOLD HOLD HOLD

Disclosure – Currently I do not own any Procter & Gamble nor plan to initiate position within the next 72 hours.
