JCP Is a Losing Bet

Oct 29, 2017

More than eight years into a bull market and with all major indices trading near all-time highs, it’s difficult to find a stock that’s stuck in a downtrend – let alone one that’s been pulling back for 10 years. But then comes the chart of J. C. Penney (JCP). After topping out at $87.18 back in early 2007, JCP has been in a freefall. It recently hit a low of $3.31 before garnering some buyers at the decade-plus low, and the subsequent rally has sent the shares back up to their 50-day moving average. This is a level that JCP has not traded above since early August. And it’s not having any luck getting back above it now. Continue Reading…

Avoid HAS This Holiday Season

Oct 26, 2017

Hasbro (HAS) shareholders have had nothing to complain about for years as the stock has trumped the return of the broad market since the lows of 2009. It climbed 450% to an all-time high in July, and at that point it appeared as though the run would continue indefinitely. But all of that came to end just one day after the shares hit their highest level. The company released its second-quarter earnings report on July 24 and by the end of the day HAS was down 9.5%. The stock continued to fall before appearing to form a base above $95, but once again earnings threw a wrench in the action. Continue Reading…

One Trend I Don’t Like

Oct 25, 2017

You know me. I’m all about innovation and the next-generation way of doing things better, faster, cheaper and smarter. Well, most of the time anyway. I’ve come across an exception, one that I think could cost investors money. One week ago today, a new exchange-traded fund (ETF) was launched called the AI Powered Equity ETF (AIEQ). The AI stands for artificial intelligence, which is definitely NexGen. Now many of you know that I happen to love ETFs, which are also a newer and often great way to invest. So what’s the problem? The problem is that this particular ETF is managed by a computer. Continue Reading…

5 Battered Stocks That Can Come Back From the Grave

Oct 23, 2017

With the market trading at record levels, it’s hard to imagine that there are stocks out there that have been battered beyond recognition. But there are. Now we never want to catch a falling knife, but not every stock that’s trading at lows is untouchable. In fact, there are five out there right now that I think have the potential to come back from the grave. Let’s take a closer look. Continue Reading…

Will GE Get Its Mojo Back Post-Earnings?

Oct 20, 2017

Multinational conglomerate General Electric (GE) will release its third-quarter numbers before the bell on Friday, and it’s looking to break an ominous streak that dates back nearly two years. For seven consecutive quarters, GE stock has fallen on the day of the report. But the selling doesn’t have anything to do with the headline numbers. In fact, GE has bested analysts’ expectations in eight of the last nine quarters, and it matched estimates in that ninth one. Maybe a new CEO will be able to break the unlucky streak, but really GE just needs a strong quarterly report. Continue Reading…

NexGen Trends in the Oldest Resource of All

Oct 18, 2017

The tragedy in Puerto Rico continues, and this week we’ve heard more about the serious lack of clean water on the island, which is obviously raising all kinds of health and sanitation fears. According to some reports, water is being pumped out of potentially toxic sources, but the people on the island are so desperate for water that they are drinking it and using it for bathing and laundry anyway. We talked last week about how NexGen solutions can help with the problem of electricity. The same is true when it comes to water, which is actually a significant problem all over the world. Continue Reading…

BIDU Still Has Plenty of Upside

Oct 15, 2017

Baidu (BIDU), a leading Chinese internet company with the world’s largest internet user population, has an interesting chart. The stock began to rally in July, consolidated throughout August and then took off on another rally that sent the shares to new highs. Not only did BIDU hit a new 52-week high this week, but a heavy-volume move on Tuesday also sent it to record levels above the 2014 high of $251.99. Tuesday’s volume was the best in nearly a month and it underscores the strong conviction behind the breakout. Continue Reading…

BLK Hits All-Time Highs on Strong Earnings

Oct 13, 2017

BlackRock (BLK) helped kick off the third-quarter earnings season this week, and shares of the world’s largest asset management company are up 3% since the numbers came out Wednesday morning. Adjusted net income came in at $969 million, or $5.92 on a per-share basis, increasing nicely over last year’s $854 million ($5.14 a share) and beating analysts’ expectations by $0.36. Revenue was also better than expected, gaining 13.7% year-over-year to $3.23 billion. The company brought in $96 billion worth of investments in the quarter. Continue Reading…

NexGen Energy: Lending a Helping Hand

Oct 11, 2017

Our focus on owning tomorrow’s winners today often gives us a fascinating glimpse into what our lives will be like in the future – such as the possibility of living on Mars or vehicles that drive themselves. After the devastating hurricane season we’ve had, you might be wondering how next-generation advancements can help. I wish we had a way to control the weather, but it is not yet a viable NexGen trend. Short of that, I would suggest that NexGen energy can help deal with and perhaps one day even reduce the impacts of natural disasters. Continue Reading…

How to Trade TSLA’s Volatility

Oct 07, 2017

Trading a volatile stock is never easy. It involves patience, and at the same time you need to be nimble and ready to move at any given moment. Tesla (TSLA) is a perfect example of this. It is often moved by headlines as analysts and commentators obsess over the company and its CEO, Elon Musk. There is a true love-hate relationship here. The bears are calling for it to fall by 50%, while due to slow auto sales and high costs. On the other hand, the bulls look for it to become one of the largest companies in the world thanks to increasing demand for battery storage. Continue Reading…
