Tomorrow's Outlook in Today's Market - Research Report on Church & Dwight Co., Inc., the Clorox Company, Micron Technology, Inc., Cypress Semiconductor Corporation and MasterCard Incorporated

NEW YORK, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Church & Dwight Co., Inc. (NYSE:CHD), The Clorox Company (NYSE:CLX), Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU), Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:CY) and MasterCard Incorporated (NYSE:MA). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Research Report

Analysts' bull outlook towards Church & Dwight seems to be consistent. The parent company of brands, such as Arm & Hammer, Oxiclean and Trojan has been showing upward trends in revenue growth and dividend that is said to be annually increasing by 40 percent. Although the company's debt level increased in 2012, Church & Dwight's recent acquisition of Avid Health Inc. may significantly help the company expand its market and boost its revenue. According to Zacks Equity Research, Church & Dwight's new asset may help the company gain a market share in one of the fastest growing segments of the vitamin/mineral/supplement (VMS) business. Avid Health is the market leader in VMS gummies, and its sales are reported to have tripled over the last three years.

The Clorox Company Research Report

The importance of expanding a business portfolio seems to be one of the best decisions for an optimistic and forward-looking story, and Clorox' story is probably one of the most celebrated today. As an industry leader, the bull stance towards Clorox is well-deserved as the company has been posting average yearly returns of 12.5% since 1968. For a stock that has risen by 89% in the last decade, there may be more to the centennial celebration of Clorox this year. Just like Church & Dwight, Clorox is also acquiring two companies, Aplicare, Inc. and Health Link, to expand their infection control product line for the healthcare industry.

Micron Technology, Inc. Research Report

Micron, in particular, saw its stock price jump by leaps and bounds after hitting rock bottom amid a mega-lawsuit filed by Rambus concerning the popular DDR (double data rate) memory chip, which is found in every computer. In addition, they have landed a spot in the iPhone 5 with their acquisition of Japanese memory supplier Elpida. However, fourth quarter sales came weaker than expected as PC sales continue slumping due to the rising popularity of tablets. It is expected, though, that the company would be able to offset the drop in PC sales with higher-margin products for servers. The Street rates Micron as "hold" with a $9 price target.

Cypress Semiconductor Corporation Research Report

Cypress' shares surged more than 2 per cent after announcing fourth-quarter 2012 loss at a smaller rate than projected by analysts. It declared revenues of $180.3 million, less 11.2 percent sequentially and 25.6 percent year over year, as demand in all segments slows down. Motley Fool says the company is set to stage a turnaround after the spinoff of its Cypress Envirosystems and the acquisition of Ramtron. In addition, structural changes aimed to lower operating expenses and improve efficiency were implemented. A recent purchase of about $100,000 from the Cypress CFO helped boost the stock 2.5 percent.

MasterCard Incorporated Research Report

MasterCard is probably one of the top performers, if not the best, among the companies listed under the consumer financial services industry. The world's second largest payment company reported 9.2 billion transactions in Q4, a hefty 20% increase, which pushed its quarter revenue by 10% to $1.9 billion. MasterCard reported a total revenue increase of 10% to reach $7.4 billion or $22.04 earnings per diluted share for the year-ended.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....

There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.

He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...
There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
