    Seadrill Partners (SDLP), which is 53.2% owned by Seadrill (SDRL) is a good stock to own for the medium to long-term. This article discusses the investment positives for this high dividend yielder.

  • [By Matt DiLallo]

    Seadrill (NYSE: SDRL  )
    With a dividend of just over 8.5% you'd think that Seadrill was an MLP, but it's not. In fact, its dividend is actually a lot higher than the distribution of its publicly traded MLP arm, Seadrill Partners (NYSE: SDLP  ) . Because of that higher payout and its growth opportunities, Seadrill is the best dividend stock of the two.

    The Norwegian driller has several investments in other companies. It holds roughly 12% of SapuraKencana Petroleum Bhp pursuant to sale of the tender rig business.

Advisors' Opinion:

    Granted, shares of Southwest Airlines (LUV) fell 0.1% to $41.85 in early afternoon market action. But Delta Air Lines (DAL), United Continental Holdings (UAL), American Airlines Group (AAL) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE) and JetBlue Airways (JBLU) rose 0.35%, 0.2%, 1.78%, 0.3% and 0.48% respectively.

    With an upscale product on new Airbus narrow body aircraft, VA has routinely generated higher average fares and higher RASM on both long haul and short haul extremely competitive routes vs. legacy and traditional low cost carrier. Virgin has consistently generated higher average fares and higher revenue per mile than American Airlines, Delta Air Lines (DAL), and United Airlines (UAL) on transcontinental routes such as JFK to LAX and JFK to SFO [...] During 4Q13, in the LAX to JFK market, Virgin America generated an average fare of $284, $17 above the second highest fare of $267 for American and $39 above the average fare for all carriers in this market. In 2Q14, the last period for which Department of Transportation data is available, American Airlines surpassed Virgin in terms of both average fare and RASM. This was the result of AAL's switching to new smaller aircraft, thus cutting its capacity in the LAX to JFK market by approximately 18%. The reduction effe ctively reduced the number of discounted seats offered by American, squeezing the 18% lowest fare paying passengers off the AAL flights and thus driving the average AAL fare higher. We do not believe there was a material change in the relative performance of Virgin versus American in the top three-fourths of the fare paying passengers.

    One interesting bank that is seeing insider buying activity is Berkshire Bancorp (BERK). The company has recently switched from the Nasdaq to OTC markets, but that has not stopped director Moses Marx from consistently buying BERK stock. Berkshire does business in the already overbanked New York and New Jersey markets, and the stock is very cheap at just 82% of book value. Insiders won more than 60% of the bank, so investors are on the same side of the table as management.

Advisors' Opinion:
  • [By CNBC]

    By John Moore/Getty ImagesA T-Mobile iPhone 5 Shares in Deutsche Telekom shot up Thursday after the company grew its customer base in the U.S. -- where it owns T-Mobile -- substantially more than expected. The German company said it had added 688,000 postpaid customers in the U.S. in the second quarter, helped by a simplification of its tariffs and strong sales of Apple's (AAPL) iPhone. It followed a loss of 557,000 customers over the same period last year. Shares were 6 percent higher in morning trading in Europe. The company revealed plans to boost its marketing spend in the U.S. in an attempt to further boost its customer acquisitions. As a result, it cut its forecast for full-year free cash flow from €5 billion ($6.68 billion) to around €4.5 billion. "We are in the middle of a massive turnaround in the United States and we want to carry on along this successful course," said Rene Obermann, Deutsche Telekom's outgoing CEO, in a statement. "We are prepared to spend more on high-value growth this year than previously planned."

    Can you hear me now?
    The downside to the U.S. telecom and entertainment service provider business is that it's rife with competition. Verizon is one of only two behemoth domestic carriers -- the other being AT&T�-- that's really able to throw its weight around with regard to wireless pricing and flexibility. That doesn't stop the little guys from trying, however, as Sprint Nextel�agreed to a big investment by Japan's SoftBank, which will give it a majority stake in Verizon in exchange for billions of dollars to build out its 4G LTE network. Similarly, T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS  ) merged with MetroPCS to give the bigger service providers a run for their money, and it's been offering no-obligation iPhone contracts to lure new customers.

    For those following the wireless industry closely, you probably know John Legere. For those who don't, he is the CEO of T-Mobile (NYSE: TMUS  ) who has developed a cult following through his brash demeanor and willingness to take on the industry giants. From his (at times) NSFW commentary to his consumer friendly "Un-carrier" policies, he's been a breath of fresh air for the industry.

Hot Life Sciences Stocks To Watch Right Now

Renewable oils manufacturer Solazyme (NASDAQ: SZYM  ) got walloped after announcing a new commercialization strategy that will result in drastically reduced production volumes from facilities in Clinton, Iowa and Moema, Brazil and less revenue in 2015 and beyond than originally expected. The company's former commercialization strategy of selling massive volumes of commodity replacements relied on optimized, low-cost production and numerous customers. That stood in contrast to the strategy settled into by fellow industrial biotech Amyris (NASDAQ: AMRS  ) at the end of 2012, which relied on producing low volumes of high value products, seeding important long-term markets, driving costs down with new microbial production strains, and adopting an efficient corporate cost structure.

Now, however, Solazyme is simply converging on the realizations of most other industrial biotech companies including Amyris, Pareto Biotechnologies (started with lean commercial strategy), REG Life Sciences, Metabolix, Deinove, Evolva, and others. While the market hasn't taken much interest in the long term value potential of Amyris' strategy, investors will want to educate themselves on the parallels, market realities, and timelines involved now that Solazyme is transitioning to a commercialization pathway nearly identical�to the rest of the field. Can Solazyme make a similar strategy work for its platform and two production facilities?
