Shape Up for Industry Outlook - Research Report on E TRADE Financial Corporation and The Charles Schwab Corporation

MACAU--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Today, announced its research report highlighting E TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: ETFC) and The Charles Schwab Corporation (NYSE: SCHW). Full content and research is available at

Top considerations within today's market lie with the current status of the US debt ceiling. Despite the US National Gross Domestic Product beginning to move beyond high-watermark, marking a significant shift away from recessionary pressures, continued momentum relies upon a non-default agreement within congress on or before August 2, 2011. The US Department of Commerce has confirmed growth within first quarter 2011, opening the strong possibility of companies within sub-sectors to experience organic revenue growth in the case of successful agreement.

No matter the outcome, Aug. 2 will mark opportunity for investors to take advantage of equities with high-margin and specialty products. Fundamental positives in this area are provided by limited exposure to rising commodity costs. Although raw material cost increases will continue to pressure margins, well-positioned companies can leverage organic growth and general consolidation of product lines to sustain bottom-line growth. Market-wise investors are looking to build strong cash positions to take advantage of events in the coming weeks, carefully watching for value within equities boasting established pipelines and excellent growth prospects.
