Nordstrom, Inc. Research Report

Nordstrom saw its revenue rise 8.6 percent in December alone, compared to the
same month in the previous year, beating expectations of just 3.4 percent.
Shares rose to above $55 in the period. Overall revenues were up 9.4 percent
compared to 2011, at $1.72 billion. Motley Fool notes its unique business
model that encompasses two completely different segments, the luxury Nordstrom
stores for upscale shoppers and its Nordstrom Rack discount stores gaining
attention from bargain-conscious shoppers. It has also put more emphasis on
its online sales experience, and invested heavily in IT. Its focus on
high-margin merchandise and minimizing discounts has worked wonders for the
company as well, in contrast to Amazon.com's low pricing strategy. The Full

Sony Corporation Research Report

Sony, after losing its years-long dominant position in electronics and
entertainment, saw its share price go up for the second straight trading
session upon news of the sale of its 37-storey headquarters in New York City's
famed Madison Avenue for $1.1 billion. The deal, which is expected to be
complete in March, will go towards debt payment with about $770 million to be
retained by the company. The sale is part of the company's effort to cut down
costs as it struggles to keep up with newer companies that have been cutting
Sony's market share. Reports also indicate that its building in Tokyo may be
sold as well, and could fetch at least $1 billion. Sony is also expected to
release its new gaming console, the PlayStation 4, probably at the same time
Microsoft releases the Xbox 720, the product's main competitor. However, it is
expected to sell only half of the sales volume of the PlayStation 3 as
consoles are slowly becoming second fiddle to social networks and mobile
gaming in tablets and smartphones. The Full Research Report on Sony

Harman International Industries, Incorporated Research Report

Harman is on a roll with expected increases in both its stock price and
revenue in its upcoming earnings report at the end of the month. Zacks
upgraded shares from "underperform" to "neutral" with a $51 price target.
Instrumental to the company's surge is its expansion from high-end luxury
markets to entry luxury and mid-luxury customers, enabling the company to get
orders from previously reluctant US carmakers like Chrysler/Fiat, GM, and
Ford. These new orders are more profitable to the company than the backlog it
is replacing, according to a report from Forbes. A report from Motley Fool
took note of its increasing inventory, which is intended to parallel revenue
increases. Harman is ramping up its raw materials inventory by as much as 25
percent quarter by quarter, suggesting management is seeing increased demand
on the horizon. The Full Research Report on Harman International Industries,
Incorporated - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price
targets - is available to download free of charge at:

Tiffany & Co. Research Report

Tiffany's still remaining as the biggest competitors because of the name that
it has established for years as a known brand representing genuine quality and
lasting value. Tiffany's said its net worldwide sales rose 17 percent to
US$799.1 million during November and December, with a 15 percent rise in the
Americas region, an 11 percent increase in Asia-Pacific and a 30 percent jump
in Europe. But even Brian Sozzi, chief equities analyst at NBG Productions
says that "I feel like the name Tiffany's doesn't carry the same weight as it
used to." There is a fundamental shift in the consumer mindset. Even if the
economy were to roar back, there are more items competing with Tiffany's.
People are looking for more items that have function." This is proven by the
number of consumers opting for iPads and cellphones as items that are worth
shelling out cash for rather than luxury jewelry. The Full Research Report on
Tiffany & Co. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price
targets - is available to download free of charge at:
