Research In Motion Ltd. Research Report

BlackBerry saw its stock prices surge at the wake of the announcement of the
new OS BlackBerry 10 along with two new smartphones, which is believed to be
at par with today's top selling mobile phones. The new platform boasts the
ability to access personal and work accounts separately in one device, a
feature which is not present in today's top mobile phones. The company
released one of two phones, the Z10, in Canada and the UK this week. It claims
sales were better than expected, with CEO Thorsten Heins saying the launch day
was "50 percent better" than any launch day in Canada, and sales in the UK was
close to "three times their best performance" of any BlackBerry smartphone.
The phone will be available in the US in March, as carriers are still testing
the devices before it is allowed to be put on sale. Several analysts upgraded
BlackBerry's stock with these projected sales, as well as its diminishing
negative margins from its previous devices carrying its previous OS BlackBerry
7. Wells Fargo Securities, in particular, upgraded the company from
"equal-weight" to "overweight," citing the improving gross margins. BlackBerry
is known for its enterprise-friendly devices, which featured excellent
security features and a messaging service that pioneered the social networking
field - known as BBM - caters to both corporate employees who need access to
office mails on the go, and younger users who like sharing messages, pictures,
and other media using the device. The Full Research Report on Research In

Apple Inc. Research Report

Apple, on the other hand, saw its share price rise a few dollars up after its
downtrend early this year in the wake of its Q4 earnings report. The surge is
attributed by many factors, including an announcement to increase dividends
and stock buyback funds, as well as the news of the iPhone still being the top
smartphone manufacturer in the US. But what fueled the resurgence is a rumor
that Apple is developing an iOS-powered wearable watch. There aren't many
details on the device itself, but most of the attention has been placed on one
of the company's suppliers, whose breakthrough technology would enable Apple's
efforts. Corning, the developer of the widely-used Gorilla Glass used in
Apple's iPhones, has developed an extremely flexible version of the
thin-yet-damage-proof glass, Willow Glass. A report from New York Times said
the product can help Apple stand out from the competition with its
understanding of how the glass can "curve around the human body." The Full

Caesars Entertainment Corp Research Report

Caesar's shares jumped 12 percent earlier this week, after the company
announced a $1.5 million debt offering and a spin-off called Caesars Growth
Venture Partners, which will be owning Planet Hollywood, the company's online
assets, and a new project in Baltimore. But the price rose close to 18 percent
today after New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced a 10-year trial
period of online betting - after vetoing against it in 2011 - to see if it
would help the struggling casinos in Atlantic City return to profitability.
Caesars stock now trades at $10.07 shortly after the announcement. This comes
after New Jersey was beaten by Pennsylvania as the second-largest gambling
market behind Nevada. Casinos in Atlantic City fell 8 percent in 2012, while
Pennsylvania casinos had 4.4 percent growth in revenue, enough to beat New
Jersey. The move is an attempt of the state to become a sort of "Silicon
Valley of Internet gambling." The Full Research Report on Caesars

Penn National Gaming, Inc. Research Report

Penn National hit a 52-week even after Q4 earnings did not meet expectations.
Earnings were down at $20.2 million from $44 million a year before, with the
company citing increased economic volatility and slow recovery of two casinos.
The economy may be improving and spending may be up, but the results show
decreased consumer confidence. However, the company has expanding profit
margins, reasonable debt levels, and good return on equity. In addition, a
planned spinoff of its real-estate assets as a real estate investment trust -
which could help avoid federal income taxes - was instrumental in the slight
stock price boost. The Street rates Penn National as a "buy," saying the
strengths more than outweigh the negatives.. The Full Research Penn National

CIGNA Corporation Research Report

Cigna in particular had an increase of 49 percent in net income for Q4 thanks
to its $3.8 billion acquisition of HealthSpring in 2011, which allowed it to
raise its fees and premiums by as much as 48 percent to $6.8 billion. Net
income came in at $406 million or $1.41 per share, up from $273 million or 98
cents per share year-over-year. The deal also helped Cigna increase its stake
in the rapidly-growing market for Medicare Advantage plans, the privately-run
versions of the government's Medicare insurance program for the elderly and
disabled. The company also arranged a deal with Warren Buffet's Berkshire
Hathaway, a reinsurance agreement for the variable-annuity death-benefits
business Cigna had been trying to exit. The company is optimistic moving
forward, despite additional provisions in Obamacare, including one that
prevents insurers from charging higher rates of people with pre-existing
medical conditions, and another that limits the profit carriers can take out
of Medicare plans. Net income and per share earnings is expected to continue
rising as analysts still see value in the company's ability to rein in
healthcare costs.. The Full Research Report on CIGNA Corporation - including
