Goodrich Petroleum Corporation Research Report
Goodrich's shares jumped 19 percent, after announcing that its Crosby 12H-1 well in Mississippi is now producing 1,250 barrels of oil equivalent per day from the shale formation 3 miles below the Earth's surface. The well could produce as much as 7 billion barrels of oil, according to a report from Motley Fool. This comes as great news for the company, who owns 50 percent of the well, after its previous well in the Tuscaloosa formation turned to be unsuccessful. Goodrich can further meet its potential moving forward as it continues to explore the region.

Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation Research Report
Cabot was upgraded to "strong buy" by Zacks due to rising earnings estimates for the upcoming results for Q4 of 2012, after earnings for the previous quarter beat estimates in earnings per share and revenues. The risen estimates were driven by its Marcellus operations, which eclipsed one billion cubic feet of gross production per day last year. The milestone resulted in Cabot's total net production increase to more than one billion cubic feet equivalent per day, another record high.
However, there are issues in the company's balance sheet, with GAAP profits moving in the other direction due to $857 million in net deferred tax liabilities, $17 million in off-balance debt, and $313 million in accumulate asset write-downs. A Motley Fool report says that these indicate that the company is not making money.

Google Inc. Research Report
Google gets additional ad space and will get bigger advertising revenue numbers in the process, which is already heading upward in itself. It will retain a part of the revenues generated from the ads displayed on its partner sites, while website owners displaying ads covered in the agreement would likely get to keep 68% of the revenue. Last year, the company's ad sales on its partner sites totaled $12.5 billion.
Yahoo already has an exclusive deal with Microsoft, where the web portal's search engine is being powered by the latter's Bing search engine and search advertisements. However, experts see that the deal with Google would turn in more profit for Yahoo. CEO Marissa Mayer even thinks the Microsoft deal isn't delivering the numbers it should. Mayer was a top executive at Google before being Yahoo's CEO, and with that, the deal could improve the relationship of both companies and eventually translate to impressive growth in the coming years.

Yahoo! Inc. Research Report
Yahoo is expected to generate additional ad dollars with the deal, and could complement the many improvements ushered in by Mayer's turnaround efforts. The company has been slowly introducing changes in its user interface to carry more ads, reinvigorating its mobile experience, and in Yahoo Mail and Flickr. In addition, the deal could bolster its display business, a major source of revenue for the Yahoo. Display advertising revenues were down 3 percent year over year at $591 million for Q4, and the number of ads displayed were 10 percent fewer year over year though 3 percent more sequentially.
Mayer has been praised for her job so far at Yahoo, by repositioning itself to provide more useful, customized products for its customers and content consumers. However, it remains to be seen if the company could stand out from the incredibly fierce competition it's facing. The Full Research Yahoo!

Genuine Parts Company Research Report
Genuine Parts has been standing out of the auto parts retailers crowd lately with its growth in same-store sales, low debt, and net income for the past three quarters. Same store sales grew 4 percent in the previous quarter with the combination of product and business segment diversity, overseas expansion, and cost-cutting. In addition, the company is also selling other products aside from auto parts, supplying bearings, hydraulic and pneumatic components, among others to the industrial sector, as well as office supplies and electronic materials. All four segments have been well-performing, and has contributed to the sales in growth. The Street reiterates its "buy" rating for Genuine Parts, citing performance of its revenue growth, earnings per share, net income, and valuation levels.
