Seeking Alpha contributor Michael Fitzsimmons has summarized Statoil’s (NYSE:STO) Q2 results, which he suggests show that the company is undervalued and operating successfully with oil at $50/bbl or less. With net income of $0.44/share, Q2 dividend of $0.22/share and 8.1% debt ratio reduction, things looks sweet even in these challenging times. However, there is more good news to the Statoil story. Here I have a look at what Statoil is doing about growing a future beyond oil.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In Right Now

 It's one of the few constants in the financial markets…   Popular investment ideas are usually losers.   As we often preach, it pays to be a contrarian. Or as billionaire investor Warren Buffett has famously said, "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful."   Whatever phrase you choose… whenever the "crowd" is heavily betting one way, it's often a good time to take the other side of that bet.    We were reminded of this fact when we saw the Commitments of Traders ("COT") report on the U.S. Treasury market earlier this week…   If you're not familiar, the COT is a weekly government report that tracks the bets of different types of traders in different futures markets, including U.S. Treasurys.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Buy Right Now

If you are interested in owning one of the bluest-chip companies on the planet while generating a 15 percent annualized return over the next five years, then Nestlé (NSRGY) is just the stock for you.

At least that is what legendary hedge fund manager Dan Loeb of Third Point Capital thinks, provided Nestlé is willing to heed his words of advice.

I think Mr. Loeb may be just the kick in the pants this great old company needs right now.

Let me explain…

Nestlé — 152 Birthday Candles And Counting

Nestlé is an absolute juggernaut of a business. It has a market capitalization (number of shares outstanding multiplied by the share price) of nearly $240 billion which places the company on the edge of being one of the ten largest companies on the planet.

This is a blue, blue, blue chip if there ever was one.

Nestlé has its base of operations in Vevey, Switzerland. The company had been around for quite some time — 152 years to be exact. I guess you could say that the business has proved to have some staying power.
