Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting Goldman
Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE:GS), JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), General Growth
Properties Inc. (NYSE: GGP), Macerich Co (NYSE: MAC) and Penn West Petroleum Ltd

Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. Research Report

Analysts predict that Goldman's shares will appreciate nearly 19 percent in the
next 12 months. 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 Group,

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 is at 
$1.39, or 49 percent higher year over year. However, the share price is just 
$50, which could prove to be a steal in the long run.. The Full Research Report

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 Properties Inc -

Macerich Co Research Report

Macerich Co., 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 Macerich may
find their malls getting packed soon. The Full Research Macerich Co - including
full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to

Penn West Petroleum Ltd Research Report

For 2013, Penn West has an approved capital budget of  $900 million, with the
possibility of an additional  $300 million  in the second half of the year. The
focus of the budget is to improve capital efficiencies by focusing capital on
projects that are expected to produce flowing barrel efficiencies in the 
$35,000 to $40,000  per boe a day. The company also has taken on a more balanced
pace of drilling, planning to peak at approximately 20 rigs in the first quarter
of 2013. 90 percent of the base capital budget is planned to be allocated toward
light oil projects. The company expects 2013 average annual production to be
around 135,000 to 145,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day. Analysts are
optimistic about Penn West, believing that it will outperform. This bullish
assessment is based on the company's positive long term history and good
management, as well as being oversold and under the trader's radar. The Full

analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:
