Egypt Ousts Morsi: Another Sign of Emerging Market Woes

As widespread unrest spreads across Egypt after the ousting of President Morsi, investors need to be wary of a growing trend affecting broader emerging markets.

Much of the unrest around the world is caused by one thing: Uprisings against governments and their inabilities to provide basic services to citizens with rising income levels.

Buy, Sell or Hold: Is Mosaic (NYSE: MOS) a Fertile Opportunity?

Planet Earth's inhabitants are expanding by 75 million people per year and are expected to reach a population of 9 billion people by 2050.

That's an awful lot of mouths to feed.

Furthermore, the land used for agriculture is not growing at the rapid pace it needs to keep up with this demand for food. Therefore, it is critical that farmers get the most out of their crop lands in order to supply the expanding protein-starved population.

Money Map subscriber, Wim D., suggested a review of fertilizer producer, The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS), as a business that will benefit from the ever-increasing global population.

Fertilizers are added to soil in order supply plant nutrients essential to the growth of crops. There are three basic types of fertilizers: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium (potash).

Mosaic is a dominant player in two of the three. The company is the world's largest producer of phosphate and North America's second largest producer of potash. Its products are essential in the growth of corn, rice and cotton among others.

Buy Into the Only Real Economy Left in the World

With most of the world's major economies running the printing presses to the point where it's becoming absurd, there's one country out there that is in the catbird seat when it comes to a strong, stable economy, growing export markets and strong stable companies.

And it's only going to get better.

Best Investments 2013: Buy the Top-Performing Emerging Market of Q1

While the Standard & Poor's 500 Index 10% first-quarter gain was great, it wasn't the world's best.

Investing in Mexico May Be a 100-Year Opportunity

A hundred years ago Mexico was a very different place.

Believe it or not, Mexico was once a free-market beacon of rapid economic growth. It had low taxes, encouraged foreign investment and had reformed its laws to become more business-friendly.

And under Porfirio Diaz, Mexico pursued a pro-U.S. policy, invested heavily in education and rejoiced when local and foreign magnates opened new job opportunities for the Mexican people.

Then it was all undone. Diaz was tossed out by a revolution in 1911.

Since then the news from Mexico hasn't been so good.

After more than a decade of unrest, the Institutional Revolution Party (PRI) took over in 1929 and ruled the country with a kind of klepto-socialism for the next 71 years.

In the aftermath, the oil business was later nationalized, and run thereafter as a state-owned monopoly called Pemex with no foreign investment allowed. The education system became dominated by the teachers' unions, a central force of the PRI.

And in 1988, the telecom company was privatized to Carlos Slim, who gave Mexico a monopoly service with some of the world's highest telecom rates, thereby making himself the world's richest man.

In 2000, the PRI did manage to finally lose power. But the PAN governments of 2000-2012 never had a majority in Congress, and did little to improve conditions in energy, education or telecoms.

Emerging Markets: Is This A "New Chapter" for Turkey?

In 2012, Turkey was the best performer among the emerging markets we track on our Periodic Table showing a decade of returns. All developing countries rose last year, but stocks in Turkey climbed an astounding 56 percent.

While visiting the country last week, I was happy to see my explicit knowledge of Turkey's growth was supported by my tacit knowledge.

How to Invest in Graphene

When people ask how to invest in graphene, I think of a recent History Channel series called "The Men Who Built America."

It isn't about financial tricks, dark pool trading, mergers and acquisitions, derivatives and securities bundling. It's about a time when real things were built by real people.

It's one of the reasons I'm excited about graphene. It's about time that we started to invest in real things again.

Graphene is literally the kind of game-changer that will separate the walkers from the talkers and reshape all of our industrial and commercial production possibilities.

That's why this modest carbon derivative-akin to atomic scale chicken wire– has set the world's research community on fire.
