MCDONALD'S | Stock of the Day - 10/21/13 | The Motley Fool

Fast-food colossus McDonald's reported third-quarter earnings this morning, and it proved to be a mixed bag. Investors bid the stock down at the open, but shares have mostly recovered since.

McDonald's earnings per share topped estimates, but revenue came in below what analysts were expecting. As Motley Fool analyst Jason Moser sees it, it was a middling report. Performance in Asia was less than stellar, and the company's forward guidance was also uninspiring.

Jason believes that one of McDonald's biggest challenges comes from secular changes in consumers' eating habits. McDonald's is trying to address changing food-consumption habits by putting an increased emphasis on somewhat healthier items like salads. However, McDonald's doesn't see strong sales for those items.

Jason sees McDonald's as an income investor play. The stock has a 3.4% dividend yield, and it holds a coveted position on the S&P 500's Dividend Aristocrats list.

TESLA MOTORS | Stock of the Day - 10/3/13 | The Motley Fool

Shares of Tesla Motors have sold off sharply over the past two days, due both to a downgrade from "buy" to "hold" coming from an analyst at R. W. Baird, and to the release of an internet video, showing a Tesla Model S in flames following an accident.

In this video, Motley Fool analyst Tim Hanson sits down with host Chris Hill, to discuss whether the sell-off is a buying opportunity in his eyes. Tim tells investors how he sees the stock price as having become disconnected from the fundamentals of the business, and far too optimistic even for a company of this potential. He still sees Tesla as being far too expensive, even after the sell-off.

Tim also discusses the idea of headline risk, and how stocks surrounded by so much market optimism can become priced to perfection. He notes that with stocks such as Tesla, tiny events in the news can cause large fluctuations and heavy volatility in the share price, something he prefers to avoid. Tim closes by telling investors that for current shareholders that have enjoyed a great run with the stock thus far, there may be a couple reasons to lighten your Tesla holdings coming on the horizon.

APPLE | Stock of the Day - 9/23/13 | The Motley Fool

Apple announced this morning that the company sold a record-breaking 9 million iPhone 5c and 5s units in the models' debut weekend. Analysts were only expecting around 5 million to 7 million phones sold. This is also the first time Apple has launched two phones at once.

Additionally, in an 8-K filed today, Apple now expects revenue and gross margin for the quarter to come in near the high end of guidance, at $37 billion and 37%, respectively. Investors are seeing a small amount of margin compression compared to the year-ago quarter, but that was anticipated.

Motley Fool analyst Jason Moser is impressed by this showing, though he notes that a company this size can't expect to keep posting record-breaking growth. Since hitting all-time highs last year, Apple shares have dropped by more than 30%. Jason thinks Apple's share buybacks and dividends have helped transform Apple from a growth stock to more of an income-investor pick.

Why Dont U.S. Investors Invest More in ASEAN Stocks? | Ask a Fool

In this video as part of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool Inside Value and Motley Fool Hidden Gems Australia advisor Joe Magyer takes a question from a Fool reader, who asks, "Why don't U.S. investors invest in ASEAN stocks listed in Australia? It seems strange that the U.S. investors put huge valuations on U.S.-listed internet stocks but low values on ones listed in ASEAN countries such as Iproperty and Icar Asia. It just doesn't make sense."

TD AMERITRADE | Stock of the Day - 9/19/13 | The Motley Fool

Shares of TD Ameritrade are down around 4% over the last two days after the Fed announced that it wouldn't be tapering its bond-buying program any time soon. Motley Fool Analyst Tim Hanson thinks the reason TD Ameritrade is getting punished so badly is because the company makes money from interest payments when customers don't use the money in their accounts; thus if the Fed had tapered the bond buying program, TD Ameritrade's interest rates would've gone up and the company would make more money.

But Tim isn't worried about the recent decline—he still thinks TD Ameritrade is fundamentally sound, and still thinks that eventually interest rates will go up. In the meantime, this may be an excellent entry point for long term investors.
