NEW YORK, February 15, 2013

NEW YORK, February 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports
highlighting Applied Materials Inc. (NASDAQ: AMAT), The Goldman Sachs Group,
Inc. (NYSE: GS), Blackrock, Inc. (NYSE: BLK), KB Home (NASDAQ: KBH) and Lennar
Corporation (NASDAQ: LEN). Today's readers may access these reports free of
charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings -
via the links below.

APPLIED MATERIALS INC. Research Report

Applied possesses the "idea," and with that, bright ideas to produce
innovative and leading solutions for the industry. Its portfolio includes
services and software for semiconductors, flat panel displays and solar
photovoltaic equipment. Applied's portfolio is promising as it leads to
providing real solutions for future generations. But, its portfolio cannot
buoy the company from bear inflection during an economic crisis. What Applied
needs to do is to develop its portfolio during this opportune time. Analysts
and investors are expecting the second half of 2013 to be brighter for the US
economy, and that is presumably a bull time for Applied. But, just waiting
around for bullish days won't do any cyclical business any good. Applied needs
to keep its executives busy. A new marketing plan that applies the strengths
of Broadcom's effective strategy may give Applied its well-deserved buoyancy.

THE GOLDMAN SACHS GROUP, INC. Research Report

Goldman remains rated as "neutral" by Zacks even after surpassing their
estimated earnings per share at $5.60 compared to Zacks' $3.47 estimate. It
also posted record revenue of $9.24 billion and client activity saw some
improvement. What got the company pulled down are the increased operational
expenses. Zacks adds that Goldman will bounce back with the help of its
"well-managed global franchise, strong capital base, and recent investments in
the near future." An investor place report suggests the company's stock "looks
to have plenty of room to run and earn profits" for investors since Goldman
"knows how to make money". Reports also indicate that the company has managed
to beat the system by ignoring the recently signed Volcker Rule, a law
intended to prevent banks from gambling their own money, including in areas
like private equity and hedge fund investing. This generated a truckload of
profit for Goldman, after raising a $20.3 billion private equity fund and not
investing its interest in the fund. The Full Research Report on The Goldman
Sachs Group, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and

BLACKROCK, INC. Research Report

BlackRock is given a "buy" rating by Zacks, after earning 14 percent more in
revenue at $2.54 billion compared to the previous year and posting earnings
per share of $3.96, both surpassing expectations made by Zacks. The company
announced a 12 percent hike in its quarterly dividend at $1.68 per share, to
be paid out on March 25 this year to shareholders. The company recently
provided funding for a wind farm being developed by Renewable Energy
Generation (REG), at a total of £32.1 million ($50.8 billion). The asset
management deal will have REG manage any other wind farms it sold to
BlackRock, and may include others owned by BlackRock but now developed by REG.

acquisition and property development. With the improving economy comes
