Assured Guaranty Ltd. Research Report

Assured Guaranty, a leading provider of financial guaranty insurance recently
announced its plan to launch a new municipal-only financial guaranty insurer
to increase its penetration in the public finance market. It also plans to
continue to pursue strategic insured bond purchases and consensual transaction
terminations on favorable terms, as well as to develop plans to increase
capital flexibility. Many analysts also defended why Assured Guaranty is still
a buy, with $28 target price. They noted that the action taken by the company
in response to Moody's recent rating change can unlock the inherent values of
its shares. "Assured Guaranty shares are worth materially more than their
current trading level - in some cases more than twice as much more - even if
zero new business is factored in," says BTIG analyst Mark Palmer. The Full

AmTrust Financial Services, Inc. Research Report

As a property and casualty insurance holding company, AmTrust is another big
gainer in the insurance industry, with earnings ESP of +13.1 percent and with
a strong buy recommendation from analysts.Growth in insurance sales is also
expected to cause by the growing employment in the private sector, as well as
the recovery in the housing markets. Conservative investment strategies and
capital restructuring efforts may also continue to help the property and
casualty insurers to improve their financial footing in the next quarters.
Despite the ongoing economic volatility and challenges suffered by the
insurance industry, this situation can be taken advantage of by many large
industry participants by attracting new customers and undertaking structural
changes that may help underwriting and pricing systems be more attractive to
consumers. Natural calamities like the Hurricane Sandy can be seen as an
opportunity to increase the demand for insurance. The Full Research Report on

Atlantic Tele-Network Research Report

The pending purchase of Alltel by AT&T from ATN includes licenses, network,
assets, retail stores and an estimated total of 585,000 subscribers. Currently
the wireless operations of Alltel under ATN use the CDMA network for the rural
areas of Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, North Carolina, Ohio and South Carolina.

As a result of the diverse, multi-state and dispersed geography of the Alltel
customer base and network, Michael Prior, CEO of ATN, explains that "it has
become increasingly challenging to operate in this era of rapidly growing
mobile data usage." The network of Alltel is set to be overhauled to be
compatible to GSM technology, the system used by AT&T. With this development,
existing AT&T and Alltel subscribers are expected to enjoy improved wireless
communication solutions such as mobile Internet access, 4G nationwide networks
and pay TV services. The transaction with AT&T is yet to be reviewed and
approved by the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of
Justice but Prior anticipates new acquisition opportunities, debt reduction,
investments on the other business lines of the company and returns to
shareholders through dividends. Handing over the Alltel niche to AT&T, ATN
will have room to be more financially flexible and focus on its rural
community customer bases in Southwest US, New England, New York, Guyana,
Bermuda and some portions of Caribbean Islands. The Full Research Report on

Vodafone Group Plc. Research Report

Job cut plans in the company's Spanish units is expected to dismiss about
1,000 workers, is a reaction to decline in revenues as well as southern
Europe's persistent sagging economy. At present, Vodafone mainly operates in
Europe, Africa and Central Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, while
owning 45% shares of Verizon Wireless in the United States. Verizon has
physical assets which can provide competitive wireless and wireless services
beyond United Kingdom. On the other hand, Vodafone can bolster its revenue by
selling its stake and make new investments to address the company's
problematic European markets. With the recent cuts in the Spanish units,
Vodafone can turn its attention to the growing market beyond Europe such as
Africa and the Middle East. From being a luxury commodity, wireless
communication services have become a necessity and companies are forced to
channel their resources to developing higher quality output and more effective
strategies. The Full Research Vodafone Group Plc. - including full detailed

includes elite brands, such as Apple, Cisco, Dell and Samsung among others.
