Pfizer Inc. Research Report

Pfizer on the other hand recently launched its subsidiary Zoetis to the NYSE and has been making the headlines for having the biggest initial public offering since Facebook at $26.  Having a 60-year animal healthcare history with Pfizer, it is but natural that its executive team came from its mother company. Five out of nine of its current board members currently work at Pfizer. The response has been more than impressive as originally its proposed price were in the $22 to $25 dollars, but the amount of interest from investors had led it to push its IPO price to $26 and earning an initial IPO of US$2.24 billion. Zoetis will be trading independently from Pfizer, but the company itself will be owned by the majority of the pharmaceutical giant. Zoetis' debut was the biggest since Facebook's IPO in the mid-2011, earning US$16.02 billion.

The Boeing Company Research Report

Due to the crisis surrounding its 787 Dreamliner, Boeing's stock fell down two percent in January when investors fled the aerospace company's shares at the first sign of trouble. However, its recently reported quarterly earnings beat analysts' expectations. Revenue climbed to $22.38 billion with a $1.28 EPS. Analysts expected only $22.36 billion in revenue and EPS of $1.19. For 2013, the company expects EPS of $6.10 to $6.30 and revenue of $82 billion to $85 billion. Offsetting the issues regarding the 787 Dreamliner, Boeing announced the increased production rate for its next-generation 737 jetliner, aiming to turn out 38 planes per month. This ramp-up in 737 production shows that the company is continuing to produce its other planes on schedule despite the delay with the 787 Dreamliner due to problems with the batteries. Overlooking the 787 Dreamliner issue, Boeing is in good shape financially, with strong revenue in military and commercial sectors. The company is focusing on expanding its international defense and space markets, recently securing a $4 billion deal with Saudi Arabia to overhaul its air force fighter jet fleet. This expansion is important, given the US defense budget cuts.

Lockheed Martin Corporation Research Report

Lockheed acknowledged that defense budget cuts are expected to reduce the company's sales; and in order to overcome this, the company would cut enough costs that would allow its earnings to exceed expectations. Being Pentagon's biggest supplier and the largest defense contractor in the world, it is still optimistic and expecting its EPS to grow to $8.80 to $9.10 in 2013, beyond analysts' estimates. Lockheed may still be a decent investment and a particularly solid income opportunity, being a company with strong, multifaceted government contracts that subsidize its growth in other sectors. The company also has a good dividend history.

Barclays PLC Research Report

Barclays' "Transform Program" is reported to address and resolve the company's mistakes for the benefit of all stakeholders. From a new code of conduct which applies to all employees to focusing on both short and long term goals, there may be a chance for Barclays to become the "go-to" bank which it is dwelling on. Changes like these seem to be trending in the financial industry as HSBC continues with its restructuring program that took effect in 2011. Compared to the broad "Transform Program," HSBC's plan seems to focus on improving the company's savings and penetrating fast-growing and profitable markets. Of course, there may be noticeable changes in terms of business efficiency, but the small-scope restructuring program has a great weight to propel the company in achieving its goals.
