FNArena News - January 25 2013

By Rudi Filapek-Vandyck, Editor FNArena

I joined Twitter. Not because I am curious what this celebrity has to say about her kids, or to read that another one is waiting for a connecting flight, impatiently. Twitter allows me to follow news and commentary sources such as Dow Jones' Marketwatch, Bloomberg News and the Wall Street Journal. It assists me in keeping up with what is happening across the globe, while I am observing and analysing financial markets myself.

While I am on Twitter, reading a quote here and a news flash there, I offer my own succinct insights and commentary. Those amongst you who have already discovered the virtues of a Twitter account can add my Tweets to their daily news via @filapek.

For those who have no intention to join Twitter, but would like to stay up to date, below are my Tweets from the week past:

- Spot Iron Ore - China Import (Fines 62% FE) up $0.90 to US$148.60/dry tonne

- An excellent look-in at what is happening at #BHP Billiton by Greg Peel: BHP Can Produce, But Can It Profit? http://tinyurl.com/a7weufv

- Equity market analysts are increasingly warning about indicators at 2012 highs, or higher. Citi's US econ surprise index now in the negative

- CIMB/RBS Morgans sees consolidation phase ahead for BHP Billiton; downgrades to Neutral with reduced price target of $37.71

- GS thinks ASX200 can attack 5000 this year, but first consolidation after strong rally seems to be around the corner #equities #investing

- GS sees momentum fading from iron ore, thus #Fortescue (#FMG) will find difficult to outperform. Rating cut to Neutral, off Conviction List

- #Nickel still struggling but commodities in general mildly higher overnight markets. #China Fe62% Spot #ironore unchanged at US$145.90/tonne

- As one would expect: GS' Richard Coppleson has returned from holidays with a raging bullish view: Oz equities to generate 15% return in 2013

- UBS says miners currently in earnings momentum sweet spot. Likely to end around July with China seasonal slow down. Timing remains critical

Our archive tells no lies. FNArena warned its readers well before the price of crude oil peaked in 2008 the speculator bubble would deflate with devastating consequences for those holding oil company shares. In August we warned the most severe correction in modern history was forthcoming for natural resources. In 2007 we warned the problem with US subprime mortgages would prove much bigger than experts and media were anticipating (among other things).
