Should You Jump on the CRON Rally?

Aug 31, 2018

Cronos Group (CRON) may not be a household name for most investors, but this Canadian business is one of the largest marijuana companies in the world. It first made headlines in February when it became the first marijuana stock to list on the NASDAQ, and it has found itself back at the forefront of the news over the last month as it has been attracting some big money. The first big announcement was a deal with Agroidea SAS that allows CRON to expand into South America. The newly formed partnership will manufacture and export cannabis-based medicinal and consumer products for South America and the rest of the world. Continue Reading…

The Official Sports Betting Playbook

Aug 29, 2018

I have Thursday, September 6, circled on my calendar, and you should, too. First, my hometown Philadelphia Eagles kick off (see what I did there?) the new NFL season as the defending Super Bowl champions against the Atlanta Falcons. I would be there if I could, but I’ll be traveling and watching in the middle of the night from Italy. The other bigger reason I have that date circled is because it begins the first NFL season in the era of legalized sports betting. Four states have led the way – Nevada, the only state in which it was legal before, and now Delaware, New Jersey and Mississippi have all jumped on board quickly after the Supreme Court opened the door in May.

Is it Safe to Dip Into China’s Market?

Aug 26, 2018

The key to being a successful long-term investor is having the patience to weather all of the stock market’s up and downs. Ultimately, the key is buying low and selling high. Of course, we’ll never time things perfectly, but one of the most profitable strategies we can employ is looking toward periods of weakness to either initiate positions or add to those that have pulled back. There will always be bear markets and recessions along the way, but as you can see they are merely blips on the long-term chart. That means that while frustrating, they present us with spectacular opportunities to buy stocks cheap. Continue Reading…

Gene Editing is a Major Technology to Watch

Aug 24, 2018

Over the last six years, a small group of scientists working at different institutes have made incredible progress in a revolutionary new field called gene editing. Gene editing is just what it sounds like. It’s the changing – or “editing” – of an organism’s genes to produce a desired outcome. And while humans have tinkered with this idea for decades, it’s only in the past six years or so that a new technology called CRISPR/Cas9 has radically changed what we can do in this field. CRISPR is a gene editing technique with the potential to wipe out thousands of diseases that currently do not have a cure while in the process also saving millions of lives. Continue Reading…

Big News Means Big Upside for the Marijuana Industry

Aug 22, 2018

One of the hottest growing trends on Wall Street right now is marijuana. The market is opening up in a huge way as it becomes legal in more places both medically and recreationally. I’ve made money in it from time to time as certain events (such as elections) have boosted the entire sector, but this is now an unprecedented mega-trend that is still in its early stages. Estimates of where the marijuana industry will be in the years ahead vary greatly, mostly because there are still a lot of unknowns. Continue Reading…

Is It a Good Idea for TSLA to Go Private?

Aug 19, 2018

It’s no secret that there is often a lot of “talk” in the stock market – many times we see stocks make big moves on headlines that may or may not be completely true. The latest news item to come out of the rumor mill has to do with Tesla (TSLA) potentially going private. This is a stock I have been following for years, so I wanted to share my thoughts on the recent buzz. Ultimately, I do not believe that whether TSLA is a public or private entity will have an effect on its long-term potential. That said, you can look at this from two different perspectives. Continue Reading…

3 Chinese Stocks Not for the Faint of Heart

Chinese stocks are in a bear market. The two largest Chinese internet companies have also entered bear market territory.

So why in the world would you want to look at high-beta Chinese internet stocks as potential investments right now? Well, there are two big bullish factors working in their favor. The first is that Chinese internet stocks are some of the highest growth stocks in the world. Second, internet penetration in China is currently around 57%. Continue Reading…

Two Internet of Things Investing Themes

Aug 15, 2018

I do a lot of my shopping online, so I pay close attention to product reviews. There is one on Amazon (AMZN) that has become somewhat legendary. It was a review of a Wi-Fi thermostat, and while I have no idea if it is real or fake, it’s an entertaining read. The headline is: She Took the House, the Dog and the 401(k) But I Still Control the Thermostat. It was posted nearly four years ago, and according to the reviewer, his ex-wife got some big things in their divorce, including the house. However, she didn’t change any passwords, allowing him to continue to access the wireless network – and the thermostat. Continue Reading…

3 Unfolding Mega-Trends to Consider

Aug 12, 2018

The old saying goes, “If it was easy, everyone would do it.” This cliché rings true when it comes to big trend investing. Even in today’s high-tech world, finding business and technology ideas with extreme wealth creation potential is still very much a “low-tech” process. So much of it comes down to old-fashioned detective work. It takes a heck of a lot of time, but it’s worth it to get to the big stories before everyone else. And as I’m sure you’ve guessed, it’s one of the things I love to do. I’m always digging deep to uncover the next big trends to invest in, and today I want to share three that are worth considering for your portfolio. Continue Reading…

NXTTF Could by the “Amazon of Pot”

Aug 10, 2018

It is common practice to build a business based on the past success of a similar model. It’s also smart. For example, Chinese technology giant Baidu (BIDU) is often dubbed the “Google of China.” Over the last decade, BIDU is a 20-bagger that is now worth $90 billion. Another example is IQIYI (IQ), or the “Netflix of China.” Since its IPO, the stock is up over 100% in four months. These kinds of comparisons can be used as attention-grabbing headlines, but when they are true, the result is big profits. That’s where we find ourselves today. Leading e-commerce cannabis company Namaste Technologies (NXTTF) is striving to become the “Amazon of Marijuana.” Continue Reading…
