Tiffany's Q3 Cash Flow Turns Positive

Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) filed financials for the 3rd quarter ending October 31,2012 this morning. After lower forecasts for 2013 shares are off 8% intra-day, trading under $60 a share. Equities Research warned on Tiffany's after 2nd quarter financials were reported on August 27,2012.

Q3 2012 cash flow turning positive vs. 3rd 2011 is bullish
This morning's report shows an increase of 12% for Tifanny's trailing twelve month operating cash flow vs. the comparable ttm period ending October 31,2011, but shares are still trading at 26 times trailing twelve month cash flow of $288 million.
Equities Research would be bullish on TIF if shares were trading at a lower Operational Cash Flow multiple closer to the 17 times cash flow.

Mueller Water's Holiday Weekend 8K

The Stock Market is always shortened the week of Thanksgiving. Thursday the market is always closed and Friday the market closes at 1pm. What's always interesting is the disclosure made with the Securities & Exchange Commission after the close on Friday.

At 3:15pm est. after the market closed on Friday, Mueller Water Products, Inc.(NYSE:MWA) filed an 8-K with the SEC disclosing the following:

  • Item 4.02.
    Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.
    On November 19, 2012, the Audit Committee of the board of directors of Mueller Water Products, Inc. (the “Company”), upon the recommendation of management, concluded that the Company's previously filed unaudited condensed consolidated statement of cash flows for the six months ended March 31, 2011 and nine months ended June 30, 2011 included in the Company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and June 30, 2012, respectively, should no longer be relied upon because of errors in the classification of cash flows as between those from continuing operations and those from discontinued operations. These errors had no impact on any consolidated balance sheet, consolidated statement of operations, consolidated statement of changes in stockholders' equity, debt compliance covenant or employee compensation metric for any period. These errors also had no impact on any consolidated statement of cash flows for any period other than the six months ended March 31, 2011 and the nine months ended June 30, 2011.

    These errors related to the classification of deferred income taxes and retirement plans adjustments in determining cash flows from operating activities due to designating the Company's U.S. Pipe business segment as discontinued operations in the Company's consolidated financial statements during the quarter ended March 31, 2012. Cash flows from continuing operations were understated by $8.0 million and $10.0 million for the six months ended March 31, 2011 and nine months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. Cash flows from discontinued operations were overstated during these periods by these same amounts. Corrected unaudited condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for these periods are included as Exhibit 99.1. This information will also be presented in Note 22 of the notes to consolidated financial statements in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2012, which is expected to be filed on or before November 29, 2012.

    The Audit Committee discussed these matters with Ernst & Young LLP, the Company's independent registered public accounting firm.

Cash Flow in the News



Warren Buffett on importance of Cash Flow:
 "Common yardsticks such as dividend yield, the ratio of price to earnings or to book value, and even growth rates have nothing to do with valuation except to the extent they provide clues to the amount and timing of cash flows into and from the business. Indeed, growth can destroy value if it requires cash inputs in the early years of a project or enterprise that exceed the discounted value of the cash that those assets will generate in later years.
Market commentators and investment managers who glibly refer to growth and value styles as contrasting approaches to investment are displaying their ignorance, not their sophistication. Growth is simply a component--usually a plus, sometimes a minus-- in the value equation."

October’s 5 Year High Does not Bode well for Bulls

October’s 5 Year High Does not Bode well for Bulls
By Michael Markowski (November 02, 2012)


October’s 5 Year High Does not Bode well for Bulls
The Dow Jones Industrial Average composite’s (DIA) hitting a five year high early last month does not bode well for the bulls.  On October 5th the Dow Jones 30 Industrial average or composite traded to 13610 which was a five year high. The level that it had attained was within 4% of its all time high of 14164 which occurred on October 9, 2007.
Of all the months of the year the month of October is the spookiest month of them all. Throughout my 35 year career in the investment business which began in 1977, I remember October as the one month that was and is still feared or revered by both the bulls and bears.  October is the one month which hosted all of the crashes (1929, 1987 and 2008) for the stock market over the current and previous century. 
Since hitting the five year high on October 5th the average has declined by approximately 4% to 13093. I am predicting that the recent high that was set on October 5th will prove to be cyclical high in an ongoing secular bear market. I am also now predicting that the venerable average will not eclipse the October 5th high for at least a year or two or maybe even for several years due to one or more of the following reasons:
·         October is more than just a month or Market Crashes.  The month which features Halloween also tends to produce multi-year highs and lows.  The multi-year highs and lows that are set during October have proven to be good indicators that the market is on the verge of turning around and heading in the opposite direction.  After the dotcom bubble burst in 2000 the Dow made a five year low in October of 2002 that was just above the previous multi-year low which had occurred in October 1998.  It than went to its all time high in October of 2007 only to turn around and crash in October 2008.  Its hitting a five year high on October 5th was eerie and very unsettling or disturbing to me. 
·         Unfavorable US Presidential term cycle.  Historically, during a US President’s four year term, the best year for the market is the third year.  The worst is the second year with an average return of only 0.60 % and the second worst is the first year with an average return of 2.0%. Since the Dow is already 4% below its five year high the odds are that it will not eclipse the recent high until 2015.

·         Sentiment is increasingly negative.  I listen to CNBC and the other business channels throughout the day.  I also do a lot of reading about what is going on in the economy and the markets.  During the month of October I heard and read commentary that I never thought that I would hear in my lifetime.  The big question is what business is Microsoft (MSFT), Intel (INTC), Hewlett Packard (HPQ) and Dell (DELL) going to be in five years from now?  Perhaps an even better question is will Hewlett and Dell be in business five years from now.  Both have share prices that are hovering at or just pennies above their 17 and 15 year lows respectively.  What all of these four have in common is that they have been completely dependent upon the PC for the last two decades. They each dominated different aspects of the PC industry.  Now their business models are being obsoleted rapidly by the smart phones and the tablets. None of these four former stalwarts have a clue about what they are going to be selling in five years.
The uncertainty surrounding Microsoft, Intel and Hewlett Packard has only recently surfaced. The sentiment for these three will continue to erode until they can convince Wall Street that they have the NEW products that will enable them to grow in the future. Since all three of them are members of and represent 10% of the Dow 30 industrials composite index the odds are very low that the Dow can march to either new five year highs or all time new highs until that happens.
Since I suffered through the malaise of the markets in the late 1970s and early 1980s I am not predicting an immediate or an intermediate crash for the Dow composite or any of the major indices including the S&P 500 index (GSPC).  However, I do believe that Dow has not yet hit its bear market low for this secular bear which began after the market hit its peak in October of 2007.  Instead I am predicting that investors will be nickeled and dimed to death as they watch the value of their holdings erode very slowly over the duration of the current secular bear.    
For historical information on the secular bear markets which have occurred over the last 100 or more years and on what is driving the current secular bear market which began in 2007 and will last until 2015 I suggest that you watch a video that is available via http://bearmarkettracker.com/?page_id=567.  
The recording of an interview that I recently gave which covers my views and thoughts on the US markets, economy, secular bear market, online financial sector and on Apple  (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Enron and StockDiagnostics.com is available at the following link: http://newsgrade.blogspot.com/2012/11/gfnn-founder-michael-markowski-interview.html
