These Stocks are Values: Enable Midstream Partners (NYSE: ENBL), ONEOK Partners (NYSE: OKS) and Tesoro Logistics (NYSE: TLLP)

If we had to pick just one of Warren Buffett's folksy chestnuts to sum up the investment strategy that made Berkshire Hathaway such a successful company, this one would get my vote:
"Price is what you pay, value is what you get."
It's pretty obvious what this means. Even my dog knows Buffett is a value investor...
Given the outrageous success Berkshire Hathaway investors have enjoyed from Buffett's eye for value, it's pretty surprising that more investors don't "do" value investing.
We like a good story, we like to anticipate future trends, we like stocks with cool gadgets...(more)

S&P 500 Now Entering Violent Neighborhood

“Probably the most important factor an individual retail stock market trader needs to be concerned with at the moment is whether or not big-money interests are putting their support behind the most recent rally in stock prices – the rally that saw the 2100 level surpassed for the S&P 500 index.”
Now this week’s analysis:
Big money, a hypothetical yet very real entity comprised of large institutions and large investors, can often sway the stock market in whatever direction it chooses, simply due to its size. For example, if big money wants to drive stock prices higher, it can usually accomplish the goal by placing huge trades to buy stocks while simultaneously limiting or eliminating its own orders to sell stocks.

1-year chart of Intel (Nasdaq: INTC)
INTC rallied nicely from March until its $35 peak (blue) and September, and then pulled back into October. Then, another rally took the stock to a new high at $37 in November, which is when the stock started testing the $35 level as support. INTC’s break of that $35 support in January probably means a bigger move lower has started.

The Tale of the Tape: INTC has a key level at $35. A trader could enter a long position on a break back above $35 with a stop placed under the level. However, a short trade could be made instead if the stock rallies up to $35.
