Honeywell International Inc. Research Report

Things are also strong for Honeywell, after it reported that profits that are
above Wall Street estimates. Its materials unit topped all other segments in
terms of sales growth, up 8 percent. This unit supplies chemicals and
equipment used in oil and gas production. Since US oil production is
increasing at a substantial rate, it is understandable how this segment did
well in the recent quarter. The company was also granted patent protection
for its avionics display system, a system that includes navigation,
communications and display systems that will easily provide flight information
to pilots and crewmembers. Embraer has signed a $2.8 billion contract with
Honeywell for this technology and will use it to develop a second-generation
E-Jet aircraft family and it. Honeywell CEO David Cote warns, however, that
uncertain macroeconomic conditions could change the fate of technology
manufacturers. He calls for policy leaders to address the nation's rising debt
load by cutting government spending. While he admits that cuts in the
country's defense budget could hurt his company, he also argues it will be
more than overshadowed by the benefits that the country can get in the coming
years by having another trillion dollars of debt reduction. With strategic
acquisitions and advancements in product development, this company provides
stability despite uncertain economic conditions within the country. Now would
be a good time to look at this company given their strong prospects. The Full

Liberty Global Inc. Research Report

US cable TV giant Liberty Global Inc. recently announced its acquisition of
British cable TV operator, Virgin Media Inc., in a $16 billion deal. This
acquisition will be one of the largest cable deals of all time. By acquiring
Virgin Media, Europe's largest cable market, Liberty Global will be able to
challenge British Sky Broadcasting for dominance in Europe. Liberty Global is
known as America's King of Cable, now it is also gaining the title in Europe.
According to Liberty Global's president and chief executive, Mike Fries,
"Virgin Media will add significant scale and a first-class management team in
Europe's largest and most dynamic media and communications market." After the
deal, the company will be serving 25 million customers in 14 countries,
overtaking the world's leading cable TV operator, ComCast. American media
giants are taking advantage of stagnant advertising revenue in Europe by
moving into the territory. The acquisition of Virgin Media is just part of
Liberty Global's expansion in Europe. The company has also bought two German
cable TV operators to build its operations in Europe's largest economy. Even
before the deal, Liberty Global is already known as the largest cable operator
in Europe, with 18.4 million subscribers. The company was put into that
position by going on a decade-long acquisition spree spanning 11 countries in
the continent. Analysts say that this European expansion will give Liberty
Global a more focused strategy in a market with high disposable income.
Furthermore, the Virgin Media acquisition may strengthen the company's
superior asset portfolio diversity and growth prospects compared with its
rivals. After announcing the deal, Liberty Global reported a 23 percent
increase in its Q4 operating income, and 9 percent increase for the whole year
of 2012. The deal is subject to majority shareholder approvals from both
companies and is expected to close in Q2 2013. The Full Research Report on

Charter Communications, Inc. Research Report

Also playing in the cable TV M&A field is Charter Communications, Inc. Rumors
have been going around that the company may be preparing for a deal with Time
Warner Cable. The company's shares rose at $83.55 on February 5. Being
undervalued, analysts see this stock as a possible acquisition target. Earlier
in December 2012, analysts have already predicted that Time Warner is likely
to buy Charter Communications. The former company has had difficulty
maintaining video subscriptions due to increasing competition from telcos and
satellite TV services, and the latter company is a likely candidate to be
purchased. Losing more than 20 percent of its subscriber over the past decade,
it will need more funds to improve on that record. The Full Research Report on
Charter Communications, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst
ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:

The Home Depot, Inc. Research Report

Home Depot saw its shares skyrocket to nearly 47 percent in 2012, as it posted
10 percent more profits in Q4 of fiscal year 2012 year-over-year. It has also
been actively buying back shares, purchasing nearly $2.6 million worth of
shares in the first 10 months of 2012. Another is its low risk status, having
a 0.61 debt to equity ratio and the dividend is safely covered by its free
cash flow. The company also plans to bring in more than 80,000 seasonal
workers in the wake of its busiest season, or 14 percent more than what they
hired a year ago. This move is expected to bring in 10 percent more sales for
Q4, the biggest quarterly gain since 2007. According to a report from Motley
Fool, shareholders should expect substantial gains in the company's upcoming
earnings report for the fourth quarter, as the Christmas season and the
continuing growth in home prices should help rake in sales and cash flow. The

Lowe's Companies, Inc. Research Report

Lowe's posted a whopping 94.44 percent growth in earnings and stock surged 42
percent over the past year. Net income grew 75.5 percent in Q4 of 2012
compared to the same period last year, while revenue growth is 1.9 percent
higher for the quarter year-over-year. The company last year unveiled two
versions of Iris, a system that allows homeowners to monitor their homes via
wireless connectivity on their tablet or smartphone, which could generate
additional profits. Like Home Depot, they will be bringing in a larger number
of seasonal employees, albeit at only more than half of Home Depot's at
45,000, but is 13 percent higher year-over-year. The Street rates Lowe's at a
"buy" rating, stating that the above mentioned positives more than outweigh
its high debt management risk. The Full Research Report on Lowe's Companies,
