Halliburton Company Research Report

Last year, oilfield service companies that work with North American shale oil
like Halliburton Company were challenged by an oversaturated marketplace for
hydraulic fracturing (fracking) services, as well as a decline in US drilling
activity by producers who were concerned about low oil and natural gas prices.
This year, however, oilfield service companies are expected to rise due to
ramped up drilling activity and an increase in wells that require fracking. Many
investors have picked up on this news and have begun buying shares for various
oilfield services companies. However, the US market still has 20 to 25% fracking
fleets that are idle or underutilized, suggesting that there is still an
oversupply for hydraulic fracturing services. 300 oil rigs would have to start
drilling activity again for all fracking fleets to be used, and only 100 to 150
rigs are expected to active in the first quarter. With that said, Halliburton
has turned to offering its services to offshore locations. Halliburton's
offshore projects are expected to grow in the next three to five years, with
half of these offshore projects done internationally, where drilling has not
stalled as compared to  the United States. The Full Research Report on
Halliburton Company - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and

Core Laboratories N.V. Research Report

Core Laboratories N.V. enjoyed its most profitable quarter ever. Core
Laboratories focuses on deep water operations in  North America, and even with a
decline in North American drill count, its HTD Blast and HTD Blast XL
technologies continued to be in high demand. These machines effectively and
efficiently perforate extended-reach horizon wells. In the future, Core will
release its new perforating gun system, called the UltraHPHT system. It will be
able to withstand higher pressures and temperatures that will be suitable for
ultra-deep wells in the continental shelf in the  Gulf of Mexico. This gives the
company a better position to provide high-quality oilfield service for offshore
drilling companies. Last year, the number of offshore rigs grew by around 22%,
and industry observers predict that the demand for ultra-deep water rigs is
expected to grow at a rate of 40-45% in 2013-2015. If offshore drilling activity
continues to rise despite stricter regulations from the US government and other
international regulators, offshore locations may open new growth opportunities
for oilfield service companies. The Full Research Report on Core Laboratories

True Religion Apparel, Inc. Research Report

After almost a year of constant struggle, True Religion Apparel Inc. was still
able to close 2012 with positive Q4 results, proving all the negative
projections wrong, and starting to turn heads once again. Analysts said that the
company's Q4 was an impressive bounce-back after its two-year lag. True Religion
Apparel's shares soared by 22%,  February 7, closing at  $29.00  or a gain of 
$5.25  from its previous result. This recovery is highly attributed to the
company's improving capability to generate consistent cash flows despite the
pangs of economic recession. Moreover, the fashion industry in the global
setting continues to improve, fueled by creative advertising, pop culture and
endorsements from famous personalities. The Full Research Report on True
Religion Apparel, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and

DISH Network Corp. Research Report

Dish Network Corp. is also working on its plan toward supremacy in the field of
TV broadcasting and telecommunications by pursuing to outbid Sprint Nextel
Corporation from acquiring the entirety of Clearwire Corporation. Clearwire is
the 5th largest mobile and wireless broadband communications provider in the US.
Dish proposes to buy Clearwire at  $3.30  per share or for a total of  $5.15
billion, topping Sprint's bid by about 11 percent. Sprint, who already owns 50%
of Clearwire, is determined to thwart the Dish's attempt to disturb the current
Sprint-Clearwire merger. In fact, Sprint has a serious reason to be afraid of
losing the bidding battle lest Dish will pose an enormous threat against the
company's own plan of topping the telecommunications industry. Moreover, the
possible Dish-Clearwire merger may jeopardize Virgin Mobile  USA, Inc, a wholly
owned subsidiary of Sprint. The Full Research DISH Network Corp. - including

Virgin Media Inc. Research Report

Telecommunications and TV broadcasting companies are relentless in their
attempts to becoming number one by merging with, or, buying out other
competitors.  John Malone, acting chief executive officer of Liberty Global,
announced last  February 5, 2013  that the company is buying Virgin Media Inc.
for about  $23 billion dollars, a bold move that would make Liberty Global the
biggest multimedia company in  Europe. According to the agreement, Virgin Media
shareholders will collect about  $47.87  in cash and stock for each Virgin Media
share. The deal gives the latter a premium of 24 percent basing on the company's
closing price at the market close of  February 1, 2013. Once the merge is in
full swing, Virgin Media and Liberty Global will have a more forceful stand in
taking over British Sky Broadcasting Group plc, the biggest pay-TV provider in 
Britain."Adding Virgin Media to our large and growing European operations is a
natural extension of the value creation strategy we've been successfully using
for over seven years," said  Michael Fries, the president, CEO and vice chairman
of Liberty Global. The Full Research Report on Virgin Media Inc. - including
