The Emerging Market Enigma: A bottoms up approach

By Nicole Urken

Emerging market question marks remain front & center. And while countries like Argentina and Turkey are dominating headlines, front & center is none other than China, with worries of slowing economic growth, with the factory sector contracting in January for the first time in six months. The emerging market question marks seem to be issue number one for the market right now, particularly as taper has been expected and is gradual.So, when thinking about China: When panic sets in, we turn to company-specific data. Ultimately, broader economic read concerns will dominate headlines, but let's turn back to some positive data we have gotten from individual companies, as there has been a good deal of positive news flow:

2014: The Year of the Activist Investor?

By Nicole Urken

It's just a couple of weeks into 2014, and activism is already dominating headlines.We got word earlier this week that activist investor Nelson Peltz is joining the Mondelez board. Trian's Peltz had been pushing for a merger of Mondelez with Pepsi's snack business-- and while he will drop this push now having a position on the board, Peltz will still push for margin improvement and top-line growth. Next up, Third Point's Dan Loeb has taken a large stake in Dow Chemical with a push for the company to sell off its petrochemical business. Remember, we have seen strong value creation from Dupont and PPG Industries as they have become more specialty chemical companies. And then, Carl Icahn, who is also adding to his Apple stake, submitted a proposal to Ebay to spin off its PayPal business and nominated two of his employees as candidates for the board. Or how about Elliott management coming after Riverbed Technology and Juniper Networks...

By Nicole Urken

Today's market ended with the Dow Jones Industrial Average down 44 points while the S&P was in fact up 0.28%. Why the divergence? Key Dow components reported quarters that were seen as disappointing, but ultimately, as I highlight below, these names are still well positioned and we still see an underlying healthy market.
