Beware The Hand Of Government—Seeking Alpha
Barclays (BCS) drew attention from local government as the New York State Attorney General's office filed suit against Barclays claiming "fraud and deceit" in the manner their dark pool trading was executed. Of course, when there's one cockroach you can be certain that there are more to be found, so the financial sector becomes more widely suspect as Barclays is scrutinized.

Stock number three: Weyerhaeuser
3 Stocks Advancing The Industrial Goods Sector--The Street.com
TheStreet Ratings rates Weyerhaeuser as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, growth in earnings per share, compelling growth in net income, revenue growth and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.
