KR Lacks Near-Term Potential

Sep 01, 2017

Any time I analyze a stock as an investment opportunity, it must meet three critical criteria – fundamentals, technicals and what I like to call the intangibles. Each plays a role in a company’s future potential, and if it’s missing even one we’re better off moving on to the next stock. I recently ran well-known grocery store operator Kroger (KR) through my strict tests and the stock failed miserably on all accounts. Let’s take a closer look at why. Continue Reading…

Avoiding the Headline Trap

Aug 30, 2017

As I was returning from Europe on Monday – after doing some important research that I’ll be sharing with you in the coming days – the emails started coming in. North Korea had just launched a missile that flew over Japan, and stock futures were already down just 90 minutes after the regular trading session had ended. As expected, the markets opened lower on Tuesday. I get it. When headlines are swirling and stocks are moving, the immediate impulse is to do something. Unfortunately, that almost always works against you. Continue Reading…

Is MOMO’s Dip an Opportunity?

Aug 25, 2017

Momo (MOMO) reported what appeared to be a stellar second-quarter earnings report on Monday. Not only did the numbers blow analysts’ top- and bottom-line estimates out of the water, but management also raised guidance for the current third quarter. Still, investors were quick to smash the shares, sending MOMO down 20% the following day. Growth certainly wasn’t the issue here, as the Chinese social networking company reported adjusted earnings that nearly tripled year-over-year and revenue that was up 215%. Continue Reading…

Expect PANW to Make a Big Post-Earnings Move

Aug 25, 2017

Palo Alto Networks (PANW) has a history of making big moves after reporting earnings, but unfortunately not always in the same direction. The stock rallied 17% the day following the latest release, and it was down 24% after the one prior. With its next set of quarterly numbers scheduled to be released on August 29, many investors are trying to determine which direction the move will take this time. To help figure that out, let’s break PANW down using my three-pronged approach. We'll start with the technicals. Continue Reading…

Big Data Still Holds Big Potential

Aug 23, 2017

I like to maintain a watch list of prospective stock recommendations, and over the summer that list has ballooned to more than 160 names! That should tell you just how ripe with profit potential this market still is, and the recent pullback is providing even better entry points that I’m excited to move on soon. Several of the names on my watch list come from one of my favorite mega-trends: the Tech Revolution. This is one of the most exciting areas I’ve had the privilege of watching develop over the years.

3 Biggest Heroes of the Q2 Earnings Season

Aug 19, 2017

As each quarterly earnings season winds down, I like to take a step back and look at how the cycle fared as a whole – as well as which companies outperformed the rest. According to Bloomberg, the information technology group was the best-performing sector, with 93% of its companies at least matching estimates. Healthcare and the financials rounded out the top three industries, with the overall average of besting consensus at 78%. Here are three stocks that were at their best last quarter. Continue Reading…

PCLN’s Growth Potential Remains Strong Despite Weak Q3 Guidance

Aug 17, 2017

The Priceline Group (PCLN) has been a strong performer so far this year, rallying as much as 41% to an all-time high of $2,067.99 on August 8. However, things took a turn for the worse once the company’s second-quarter results were released that day after the close. The shares gapped 7% lower the following day and have been struggling ever since. PCLN’s headline numbers were strong, but what sent the stock tumbling the following morning was lower-than-expected guidance. Continue Reading…

Multiplying Your Profits the NexGen Way

Aug 16, 2017

My search for a better way to invest began as soon as I decided to make it my career. I knew investing was my passion, but I also knew as soon as I got my first job as a stock broker that the way Wall Street did it wasn’t right for me. That's what started me on the path of developing the NexGen investing system that has been so successful for me, my money management clients and my subscribers through the years. And now, I’m super excited about the enhancements I’ve recently made to the system to make us even more money. Think of it as the next-gen of NexGen investing! Continue Reading…

2 Tech Stocks That Are Crumbling in the Wake of Q2 Earnings

Aug 11, 2017

The tech sector has been a standout so far in 2017, with the Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLK) rallying more than 20% from the start of the year to a 52-week high on Monday. It’s also been strong this earnings season, outperforming all other groups with 69% of its companies beating estimates. However, tech stocks’ day-after performances tell a different story.Today, I’d like to talk about two tech stocks you should keep your distance from. Continue Reading…

WB a Strong Buy on Pullbacks

Aug 10, 2017

The second-quarter earnings season has been a strong one so far, but when you look at how the companies that have reported results performed the day after the announcement things get interesting. Even companies that have been able to beat analyst predictions have had a tough time continuing the rally. Why? This is a prime example of “buy the rumor, sell the news.” In other words, the expectations had already been baked into the share prices. We saw this play out again following Weibo’s (WB) second-quarter report. Continue Reading…
