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..
