5 Battered Stocks That Could Rebound by X%-Plus

Jun 23, 2017

With the indices hitting new high after new high, it’s hard to imagine that there are stocks out there trading at fresh lows. Or if you do realize they’re there, you wouldn’t touch them with a 10-foot pole. That’s understandable, but sometimes it is worth digging a little deeper to sort out the promising opportunities from the bad seeds. I did that and found five stocks worthy of a closer look. I'll talk about each in this latest article. Continue Reading…

WBA Has Nothing to Fear from AMZN

Jun 22, 2017

Amazon’s (AMZN) purchase of Whole Foods Market (WFM) last week sent shockwaves through the market, and several sectors in particular felt pressure. The obvious losers were the grocery stores that now have to deal with the invading retail giant. But another group that weakened was the pharmacy companies, as rumors swirled that Amazon would use its new brick-and-mortar locations to get into the business. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) was one of the hardest hit, falling 5% the day of the WFM buyout announcement. Continue Reading…

NexGen Sports: A New Kind of Gaming

Jun 21, 2017

I’ve been a big sports fan my whole life. I grew up in Philadelphia but live a lot of the time in Nashville right now. I was hoping to get to one of the recent Stanley Cup Finals games, but the schedule didn’t work out. It’s hard to beat the thrill of a championship sports event, especially in person but also on television or nowadays online. And that brings us to the next-generation of watching sports. I’m talking about the emerging mega-trend of eSports, which is a result of the stunning growth in competitive video gaming. Continue Reading…

AMD Is on the Verge of a Breakout

Jun 21, 2017

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has been on the move this week following the unveiling of its next generation of server chips. The new Epyc line of chips is said to offer higher performance at lower prices, and several big name companies – including Microsoft Azure, Dropbox and Baidu – are expected to use them in their data centers. A number of research analysts have raise their price targets on AMD based on the anticipated success of the new products. As a result, the shares climbed as much as 8.4% to a new seven-week high.

NFLX’s Dip is a Buying Opportunity

Jun 17, 2017

The stock market is made up of two different camps: the bulls and the bears. One group says that stocks are going higher, while the other urges you to run for cover. This back and forth has been going on for decades, so it’s no surprise that two very different viewpoints emerged when Netflix (NFLX) recently took a 12% spill. But the part that’s most interesting is the fact that both opinions came from the same side – the bulls. I’m neither a groupie nor a hater of the FANG group, so check out this latest article to get my thoughts on Netflix. Continue Reading…

CEO Swap Not Enough to Get GE Moving Again

Jun 15, 2017

General Electric (GE) made headlines on Monday when it announced that current CEO Jeff Immelt will be stepping down. Taking his place is John Flannery, the president and CEO of GE Healthcare. The stock’s initial reaction was positive, rallying 3.6% on heavy volume. The shares have drifted lower since, although they continue to hold above the pre-announcement level. Now the big question is this: What will happen to General Electric’s company structure and stock price under the new leadership? Continue Reading…

Why I’d Still Take a Bite Out of AAPL

Jun 14, 2017

Apple (AAPL) has hit several hurdles over the last week, starting with the mass exodus from tech stocks on Friday and culminating with a downgrade to kick off Monday morning. The consensus behind that downgrade is that Apple’s stock price has gotten ahead of itself and is already pricing in the potentially good news surrounding the release of its next iPhone. It’s tough to argue that perspective. However, this is when we need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Continue Reading…

The Power of Support

Jun 14, 2017

We tend to think of a mistake as something we did wrong, but when it comes to investing, the opposite is often true. The biggest mistake I see investors make is not what they do wrong but what they don’t do at all. A lot of people are afraid to buy into strength because they think they’ll buy at the top, but those same people are also afraid to buy into weakness because they are afraid stocks will fall further. The result? They’re not in the game, frozen in a holding pattern as they wait for the “right time” while the market and many stocks continue to hit new all-time highs. Continue Reading…

TSLA Takes on the Shorts

Jun 11, 2017

The bears betting against Tesla (TSLA) are gluttons for punishment as the stock just keeps beating the odds and building on its journey into record territory. Shares of this electric vehicle company have closed at a fresh all-time high six times in the last two weeks and are up more than 70% so far in 2017. Still, they refuse to give up. In fact, TSLA is the most heavily-shorted stock in the market with a short interest totaling $10.4 billion. The likely outcome will be a major short squeeze. Continue Reading…

Curry’s Success Not Enough to Boost UAA

Jun 09, 2017

After Wednesday night’s Game 3 victory, it appears as though the Golden State Warriors are on the verge of taking home their second NBA championship in three years. The team’s biggest star, two-time MVP Steph Curry, has played a major role in this year’s success, and he’s also helped give Under Armour (UAA), a company he endorses, a much needed boost recently. The question now is whether another championship is enough to revive the share price for the long term. Continue Reading…
