Tomorrow's Outlook in Today's Market - Research Report on Toyota Motor Corporation, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., Yahoo! Inc., AOL, Inc. and Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

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..

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
The world is at a tipping point where the technology, the device and global adoption are converging to such a point that we will see an explosion of a world where smartphone devices not only allow us to talk to each other, but allow for communication between everything – serving as a central hub from which we control our world – MediaTek is at the heart of both driving this and allowing the markets to drive this reality forward themselves. The next wave of consumer gadgets is here – smart, connected, and small. If your ambitions are big, so are ours. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jack Hu, D...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
