NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- Elite Traders Group Reports On Copper Stocks
Global demand for copper is expected to increase by 3.4% in 2013 and the price has jumped 7% in the past 90 days. China consumes 40% of the world copper supply and the Chinese economy seems to be recovering from its recent slump, with estimates for a sustained 7-8% annual growth rate. A more robust economic recovery in China could send copper prices even higher. With the price of some other investment grade metals such as gold, silver, palladium and platinum experiencing softer prices, copper may be a growth area for investors in mining stocks.
Viking Minerals Inc. (OTCQB: VKML) Viking Minerals Inc. operates as a pre-exploration stage company in the United States. It focuses on acquiring and developing gold, silver, copper, and other metal properties. The share price in VKML was $7.00 last summer and it slid to $.01/share by the middle of January. Since then the share price has increased to $.03/share on volumes that far exceed the daily average of 2 million shares. VKML is in the process of raising funds to acquire Discovery Day Gold Mine -Trinity Alps Resources Inc. The company has to pay $ 15 million for the acquisition. Is this an opportunity to invest in the rising price of copper?

Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, Inc. (NYSE: FCX) is expected to mine 4.3 billion pounds of copper in 2013 and is a company with $18 billion in revenue. The company is the largest publicly traded producer of copper in the world. In press releases FCX has stated its intent to increase copper production to 5 billion pounds (+16%) by 2015. EPS for the trailing twelve months was $3.18 and analysts expect that to grow by 42% in 2013. The market has supported a P/E multiple of eleven for FCX and if the earnings grow, as analysts expect, the share price should follow. Due to FCX's position in the copper markets, its fortunes are somewhat tied to the price of copper. These shares are currently trading in the $35-36 range and have a 52 week high of $47.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
