Top Safest Companies To Invest In Right Now

The ultimate plush Porsche is about to to be unveiled.

Plush and Porsche aren’t terms that usually go together, given the brand’s reputation for fast sports cars, but in this case there is no other way to describe it.

It’s a souped-up version of the Panamera sedan called the Turbo S. With a 570-horsepower engine, the Porsche is capable of 192 miles per hour. That’s 50 more horsepower than the standard Panamera, and it happens due to twin turbos with larger compressors.

To take advantage of that famous Porsche engine sound, the car will have a button to funnel the exhaust notes — but not the exhaust itself — into the cabin. Drivers can listen to their engine instead of just the audio system.

Panamera Turbo S, which will be priced at $180,300 before delivery charges, will be shown at the Tokyo Motor Show next month.

    cinz/Flickr Apple (AAPL) is in talks with Comcast to enter into a deal for a streaming-television service that would allow Apple set-top boxes to bypass congestion on the Web, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The discussions are in early stages and there are a lot of hurdles to be crossed before a definitive agreement could be reached, the Journal said. Apple, which wants its TV service’s traffic to be separated from public internet traffic over the “last mile” for faster transmission, is looking for special treatment from Comcast’s (CMCSA) (CMCSK) cables to bypass congestion, the report said. Comcast and Apple declined to comment on the report. Apple has been in talks for a faster TV set-top box with Time Warner Cable (TWC), which recently agreed to be bought by Comcast. Apple’s $99 TV box competes with similar streaming devices from Roku and Google (GOOG). Netflix agreed last month to pay Comcast for faster speeds, throwing open the possibility that more content companies will have to shell out for better service.

    Judging from the company it’s keeping Green Automotive Co. (OTCMKTS:GACR) may have just made its way into the upper echelon of small cap stock opportunities. The electric car company joins Elite Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCBB:ELTP), Amarantus Bioscience Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:AMBS), and only three other companies as Wall-Street.com’s “Best 6 Stocks” for January of 2014. As one of the top information resources for investors – particularly in terms of information regarding small and micro cap stocks – being named among the site’s top pick is an accolade for AMBS, ELTP, and GACR. Even more impressive is that Green Automotive Co. was the only consumer-goods name among those six. Amarantus Bioscience Holdings and Elite Pharmaceuticals are biotechnology names… an industry that can and often does attract a lot of attention just by the nature of the business. The other three names making the “Best 6” list were an energy explorer, a power-management technology manufacturer, and presc ription/medical food producer. For an electric car manufacturer to make the list speaks quite highly of GACR.

    Exactly one month ago today I penned some bullish thoughts on Elite Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTCBB:ELTP). If you’re familiar with the company – or a regular reader of this site – then you may know why that sounds a little “off.” See, at the time, ELTP shares were falling rather quickly, giving up all the gains they had made just a few days before. Almost needless to say, my premise was not a well received one. Let’s just say I received some “colorful disagreements” by being optimistic about the biopharma company.

    This isn’t some growing new industry set to take the world further into the 21st century. It’s an old concept that hasn’t innovated, won’t innovate, and will slowly but surely die out over this century.

    During the housing bubble, lending standards were becoming relaxed and the practice of bundling subprime loans into collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) became a mainstream practice. These securities were backed by highly inflated credit ratings even though the quality of the underlying assets was highly questionable. By 2007, the worldwide demand for this type of asset-backed security (ABS) was beginning to wane and the mortgages which provided the collateral for the securities were starting to come into question.
