NEW YORK, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE:TM), Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (NYSE:HMC), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) and Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:AEGR). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.
Toyota Motor Corporation Research Report
Toyota Motor Corporation is back to its original position in the auto industry, after the company secured back the top spot from General Motors (GM). Toyota reported 9.78 million global vehicle sales for 2012, beating its estimate of 9.7 million and GM's 9.29 million global vehicle sales. It is truly a remarkable comeback for Toyota after the company suffered from the 2011 disaster in Thailand, the massive recalls and the mid-2012 territorial spat between Japan and China which led to a Japan-made boycott. Toyota's remarkable comeback is truly getting the attention of investors. The company is reportedly trying to maintain its momentum, and the company may just respond to the 46% demand growth for its Prius line.

Honda Motor Co., Ltd. Research Report
Just like the industry leader, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. showed a recovery of 19% growth in sales. Although Honda recalled 748,000 units because of airbag issues early this year, the company is still poised towards supporting the bull stance towards the industry. Honda's biggest market, North America, makes up for more than 40% of its total sales. By launching smaller vehicles, such as the new Fit and the Urban SUV concept, Honda is expecting to generate better sales this year.

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report
Yahoo's latest earnings report beat expectations, posting $1.22 billion in revenue and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.32 due to ad prices and overseas investments, which are 4-year highs. This comes only six months after hiring former Google exec Marissa Mayer as its chief executive, a position which has been held on to one too many people in the past. Shares have been up as much as 30 percent with Mayer at the helm, scoring back-to-back beats after two quarters with solid results. Analysts say employee morale is also high, with 95 percent of employees optimistic about the company's future with Mayer. Her goal is to make Yahoo! a "premier destination" online despite being already one of the most visited sites globally. However, the real challenge is to turn those page visits into profit. A Motley Fool report believes that while Mayer has helped reinvigorate the brand, boost morale, and bring in stability, her honeymoon period may not last too long. The report adds that she is also "doing a good job" in making small bets, though sales and growth are still questionable. The Full Research Report on Yahoo! Inc. - Including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at: [http://www.nationaltradersassociation.org/r/entire_report/e5d5_YHOO ]
AOL, Inc. Research Report
AOL, on the other hands, jumped to as high as nearly $44 in November last year from just $15.40 in early 2012, but went slightly down to $31.37 this month. They have shifted their focus on content-rich sites like TechCrunch, The Huffington Post, and hyper local news site Patch to name a few, and enhanced their monetization within 2012. They have since become an A-rated "buy" from being D-rated in early 2012. Under CEO and another former Google employee Tim Armstrong, AOL has cut excessive costs and redundant employees, bought a substantial amount of stock back, and doled out dividend payments of $5.15 per share. The company also recently launched potential profit makers in HuffPo Conversations and a partnership with Discovery Communications. However, The Street still puts AOL on a "hold" rating. While its solid performance in its stock, earnings, and net income is evident, profit margins are still poorly performing overall. Its hyper local news initiative Patch is underperforming with only 11 percent of the sites turning in profits.

Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Research Report
Aegerion is the developer of Juxtapid, which treats a rare inherited cholesterol disorder called homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia. The company priced the pill between $235,000 to $295,000 per year, but could have been higher with the anticipated competition. The pill was approved unanimously by a panel of FDA officials. However, there are concerns surrounding the company, as Juxtapid is its only product, putting it in a vulnerable position. While Aegerion did make a last minute deal with development partner Catalant, it's still a far cry compared to much larger firms it competes with..

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
