Center LLC, the Ukrainian associate of Eesti Ehitus Group (38.99%), signed a contract to develop and construct a hotel building of Radisson SAS Airport Hotel Kiev on a land plot that the company has on long-term leasehold. The hotel building will have up to 300 rooms, a conference center, and wellness facilities. According to the agreement, the main contractor for the project is Eurocon Ukraine, another subsidiary of Eesti Ehitus group. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2007.

    Tallink to increase share capital. The Estonian shipping company Tallink announced that they are planning a bonus issue to increase the share capital. The company wants to increase the share capital from the share premium (EEK 3.2b) and the retained earnings (EEK 1.8b) without making additional contributions by EEK 5.0b issuing 3 new shares for each existing share. The idea of doing this seems a bit confusing at the moment.

    ThinkEquity notes that Germany is completing the auctioning of approximately four 3.5 GHz licenses at what appears to be extremely low prices. The firm believes this should cause a giant spending boom for WiMax in Germany starting some time in 2007. They say Alvarion (ALVR 6.60) will be one of the leading contenders for these four new accounts, with the usual list of competitive suspects

    Thomas Weisel believes SPWR has the potential to be a low-cost producer in the solar industry, driven by the co's technology leadership and recent efforts to vertically integrate. With its recent purchase of Powerlight, SPWR is bringing a strong distribution capability in-house. The firm thinks this should eliminate cost to the end user, further strengthening SPWR's low-cost producer position. They expect the benefits of this transaction to begin to bear fruit in 2007, but mature in 2008. They believe additional silicon supply and/or visibility into 2008 supply can be a catalyst for SPWR. They also see quarterly execution, specifically cost per watt reductions, as a potential catalyst for the shares.

  • Lühidalt indeksite tehniline pilt.

    Pühade eelsel ja järgsel ajal on kauplemismahud kokku kuivanud ning indeks on teinud väikese korrektsiooni langeva käibega. Näeme, et Nasdaq on langenud bollingeri alumisse serva ning 50 päeva libiseva keskmise juurde, kust võiks väikest toetust oodata. Mõned Nasdaq indikaatorid on jõudnud ka lühiajaliselt ülemüüdud tasemele: Stochastic Oscillator ja CCI. Viimane indikaator on lisatud ka alumisele pildidle. Lühidalt öeldes näitab indikaator ülehinnatud ja ülemüüdud tasemeid. CCI põhineb teoorial, et hinnad liiguvat tsükliliselt ning eeldab, et umbes 70-80 protsendil juhutudest viibivad hinnad -100 ja 100 vahel. Aga see sõltub siiski ka setupist ning on olnud ka märksa suuremaid äärmusi. Kuigi mõned indikaatorid näitavad ülemüüdust, on pikem nägemus indikaatorite põhjal siiski pigem külgsuunas ja negatiivne. See tähendaks aga allapoole 50 päeva libiseva keskmise kukkumist.

    Siia juurde ka Dow Jonesi tehniline graafik. Näeme, et indeks on põrganud bollingeri eraldaval 20 päeva libise keskmisel. MACD on teinud negatiivse ristumise ja ACC/Disct on langenud ning samuti teinud negatiivse ristumise. Mis tähendab, et käive ei ole enam tõusu toetamas. Sama kinnitab ka CMF, mis on veel positiivne, kuid juba pikemat aega kahanenud.

    Täna hommikul on futuurid olnud kergelt plussis. Toornafta on kukkunud allapoole kitsast kauplemisvahemikust, 50 päeva libisevast keskmisest ning kaupleb 61 dollari juures.

  • Shark räägib täna jõuluvanarallist, mis on ajalooliselt on olnud tugev periood (paar päeva enne jõule kuni jaanuari alguseni). Samas, hoiatab, et kuna turu olemus on muutunud (pulliturust ettevaatlikuks), tasub olla ettevaatlik pikkade positsioonidega.

    Yes Traders, There Is a Santa Claus Rally

    "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exists, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy."

    -- Charles A. Dana

    The annual Santa Claus rally looks to be kicking in this morning. Since 1950, the S&P 500 has gained an average of 1.5% in the seven trading days starting the day prior to Christmas and ending with the last couple days of January. Things looked rather bleak on Friday when steady selling kicked in all day but we got a light-volume bounce yesterday and it looks like we have a strong open this morning.

    The market often does a very good job of making highly expected events, like a Santa Claus rally, a self-fulfilling event. They end up occurring because so many folks expect them to occur and there isn't any great inclination among market players to fight the action. In fact, they can often do better by embracing the conventional wisdom at least in the short term. The problem is that it may not last for long and when it does end it can do so quite abruptly.

    Weak oil seems to be getting credit as the catalyst for positive action this morning. There is no other major news flow but the real driver is probably a combination of thin holiday trading, pressure to end the year on an upbeat note, and traders with idle capital anxiously pushing to create some momentum.

    I plan on playing the upside but I certainly have my doubts about whether we can trust it to last for long. After the breakdown Friday we were well positioned for a Santa Claus bounce this week but there has been a definite change in the character of the market over the last month, as we have failed to make much progress. Concerns about the economy are growing and the wild optimism that drove us off the lows in the July is waning. I'm playing this bounce and I believe it could last for a couple days but it won't last long, and I will be looking to sell the strength aggressively at some point.

    President Ford passed away last night. The policy of the NYSE in the past has been to close the market for the funeral of an ex-president. No funeral plans have been announced yet but there is the possibility that the market may be closed one day next week.

    We have a big open on the way. Overseas markets were strong, gold is up and oil flat.

  • AAPL kaupleb täna hommikul päris korralikus miinuses (ca $77.8):

    Law.com reports according to people with knowledge of Apple's situation, federal prosecutors are looking closely at stock option administration documents that were apparently falsified by co officials to maximize the profitability of option grants to execs. The faked documents were revealed in a three-month internal probe -- conducted by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges -- that concluded in October, said individuals familiar with the case who requested anonymity because it remains the subject of criminal and civil govt investigations. Since the fruits of Apple's internal investigation were disclosed to San Francisco federal prosecutors in October, the U.S. Attorney's Office has shown great interest in the case, said individuals with knowledge of the probe. And while it's not yet clear who the prosecutors' focus is, Apple released a statement in October that "the investigation raised serious concerns regarding the actions of two former officers in connection with the accounting, recording and reporting of stock option grants." Individuals with knowledge of the case said those ex-officers are Nancy Heinen and Fred Anderson, the co's former general counsel and chief financial officer, respectively.
