The Two Biggest Mistakes Hurting Investors Today

Aug 09, 2017

If you’ve seen me on television or attended one of my investing presentations, you’ve probably seen me get a little animated at times. I can’t help it when the discussion involves something I’m passionate about, and helping investors avoid the mistakes I see them making is one of them. I get so riled up because these missteps are completely preventable. I also get angry because a lot of it is not the individual investors’ fault. I don’t want you to be hurt by these mistakes, so this week I am sharing the two that I consider the biggest and most harmful. Continue Reading…

3 Cybersecurity Plays as the World Gets Hacked

Aug 04, 2017

Cybersecurity remains a hot topic around the world, and Wall Street is no exception. As companies up their online protection, related tech stocks stand to be some of the market’s biggest winners. I tested a few of these potential investment ideas against my strict NexGen criteria and came up with three cybersecurity names that stand out as future leaders in this key mega-trend. We'll look at all three in today's article, including each stock's fundamentals, technicals and chart, and intangibles. Continue Reading…

Shopify is Wall Street’s New Buzz Stock

Aug 03, 2017

Shopify (SHOP) earned a lot of Wall Street buzz this week after shares of the cloud-based e-commerce company surged over $100 for the first time. The rally was the result of an outstanding second-quarter report that included an EPS loss of $.10 ($0.05 better than expected) and an astounding 75% revenue gain over the previous year. Management also raised their 2017 revenue projection and lowered their expected operating loss. This is the kind of fundamental outlook that can’t be ignored, especially for a company at the forefront of NexGen retail. Continue Reading…

Buy, Sell or Hold Apple Here?

Aug 02, 2017

It’s the most widely-owned stock in the world. It has the largest market capitalization at $823 billion dollars, and is currently the leader in the race to be the world’s first $1 trillion company. And if that isn’t enough, it is sitting on a staggering $261.5 billion dollars in cash! I saw many attempts to put that into perspective, from it being larger than the market capitalization of most companies to it being more cash than at least 100 countries have to it being enough to buy every NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball team. I’m talking about Apple (AAPL), of course, a truly NexGen company. Continue Reading…

3 Tech Stocks That Don’t Make the Grade

Jul 29, 2017

The technology sector is a favorite of mine in the current environment, but just because I like the space as a whole doesn’t mean that every single stock within it has the potential to be a winner. In fact, I recently took a closer look at the NASDAQ 100 Index and after testing the names against my strict NexGen criteria (fundamentals, technicals and intangibles) I came across three large-cap tech stocks that I’m staying away from. Let’s talk about each. Continue Reading…

AMD and FB Provide High Growth in the Tech Space

Jul 28, 2017

The second-quarter earnings season is in full swing, and two large-cap technology companies that fall into my NexGen style of investing reported their results this week. Both hit it out of the park. The tech sector remains one of my favorites in both the short and long term, mainly as a result of the earnings potential within it. It can be difficult to find strong double-digit growth in a nine-year-old bull market, but it’s clear that these two big-name companies are still providing it to investors. Continue Reading…

5 NexGen Trends in One Travel Headache

Jul 27, 2017

Travel. The word brings to mind two things. First, it’s always an adventure – hopefully in the good sense, even if it may be work-related. But second, boy can it be a nightmare! My latest travel experience definitely falls into the nightmare category, although I guess some may call it an adventure as well. I’m bringing this up because I finally got to my destination, I looked back at the whole ordeal and realized how many of the NexGen technologies and trends we have talked about helped me get through it all. Continue Reading…

The Real Excitement – and Potential – of NexGen Healthcare

Jul 20, 2017

Healthcare has been all over the news recently, but unfortunately it’s for the wrong reasons. All of the headlines focus on the political squabbling in Washington, D.C., as President Trump pressures Congress to pass a healthcare bill that repeals Obamacare. If any of these folks were paying attention to next-generation solutions and innovation, maybe they would take a look at a company I recently recommended. Continue Reading…

DIS Doesn’t Meet My NexGen Buy Criteria

Jul 20, 2017

In order to make a profound impact on your portfolio, you have to go beyond Wall Street’s narrow focus of picking stocks. That’s why I implement a three-prong approach that gives us a fully comprehensive picture of a stock before we invest in it. Those three prongs are the fundamentals, technicals and what I like to call the intangibles. Today I want to use those three criteria to analyze a stock that has been stuck in a rut recently: The Walt Disney Company (DIS). Continue Reading…
