General Growth Properties Inc. Research Report

For General Growth Properties Inc., funds from operations rose to $311.9
million or 31 cents per share, as compared to the FFO of $252.9 million, or 26
cents per share in the same quarter the year before. After its two biggest
shareholders resolved their disputes later in the year, the company has been
able to focus on improving its assets and gain profits. Analysts from Stifel
Nicolaus predict that the company is well-positioned to generate above-average
internal growth over the next few years, with a $22.50 price target and a Buy
rating. The company has gone a long way since its bankruptcy in 2008.By owning
prime properties like Tysons Galleria and 133 regional malls, many are betting
on this stock for high returns. Moreover, the company is refinancing to
achieve interest rate savings. Back in 2012, the company completed around $7.9
billion of refinancing, reducing its interest expense by 1.1%. This trend is
expected to continue in 2013. The Full Research Report on General Growth

Macerich Co Research Report

As the third largest mall owner, operator and developer behind General Growth
and Simon Property Group, it recently acquired the Green Acres mall, which
generates revenues per square foot of over $520 million annually. As it
stands, Macerich offers the best yield among its competitors. In the fourth
quarter of 2012, the average vacancy rate for malls fell from 8.7% in the
third quarter to 8.6%, resulting to five straight quarters of a decrease in
vacancy rate. If retailers continue to expand and raise the demand for
shopping mall space, then mall REITs will earn greater profits by signing
tenants with higher lease. Perhaps the biggest barrier to the growth of
retailers and shopping malls is the 8% unemployment rate, preventing consumers
from spending extra. But on the bright side, a recent report from the Labor
Department suggests that there has been a moderate improvement in the economy,
with 155,000 jobs added last December. If things go smoothly, mall REITs like
General Growth Properties and Macerich may find their malls getting packed
soon. The Full Research Report on Macerich Co - including full detailed

JPMorgan Chase & Co. Research Report

JP Morgan recently grabbed headlines after announcing its single-family rental
market investment opportunity to its wealthiest clients, after the growth in
value of other investments linked to the US housing recovery. The chosen
investors are expected to get returns as much as 8 percent annually from
rental income and part of the profits when the homes are sold. The company
also posted better-than-expected results in its quarterly income in its Q4
earnings report, with net revenue jumping from $21.5 billion to $24 billion,
with $8.2 billion in earnings from corporate and investment banking. Earnings
per share are at $1.39, or 49 percent higher year over year. However, the
share price is just below $50, which could prove to be a steal in the long
run. The Full Research Report on JPMorgan Chase & Co. - including full

Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. Research Report

Goldman Sachs is fresh from a $1 billion sale of its stake in China's biggest
lender Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd (ICBC), the biggest share
sale in Asia this year, which was instrumental for the slight boost in share
price. The sale came after the company posted losses in 2011 due to the
volatile shares of ICBC. With this deal, Goldman Sachs has now raised a total
of around $8.6 billion from selling ICBC shares. The bank has recently been
hired by the Russian government as its corporate broker to burnish the
country's image overseas and to bring in more institutional investors. Goldman
will be advising the country's Economy Ministry and the Russian Direct
Investment Fund on issues such as communicating government decisions and
setting up meetings with investors. The Full Research Report on Goldman Sachs
