Wal-Mart Remains Appealing

Retail behemoth Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) reported another quarter of modest domestic growth and strong international expansion in 2011. The bright spot was Sam's Club, though it has a minimal impact on total firm profitability. Over the long haul, Wal-Mart represents one of the safest bets in retail and has appeal to conservative, income-minded investors.

Petrobras And Brazil's Wall Of Worry

What happened to Brazil? Once one of the darlings of the international investment community, Brazil has not done so well of late. Beset by worries of inflation and increasing government interference, Brazil's markets have lost a little luster.

Cisco: No Growth Today, Try Again Tomorrow

Value investors have a tough time with tech; the good, growing companies are often far too expensive, and the value-priced companies struggle to grow their businesses.

Utilitarian Dividends

It is hardly controversial or innovative to look for quality dividend-paying stocks in the utility space. These companies typically operate as monopolies in their respective regions, and regulators are generally quite willing to grant rates to utility operators that all but ensure solid dividend payouts. That does not mean, though, that the entire industry is uniform and undifferentiated. As with any sector, investors do well to pick and choose among the best options available for their portfolio needs. (For more, see Trust In Utilities.)
