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…

The Better Investment at $1k: GOOGL or AMZN?

Jun 08, 2017

One investment question I have received quite often lately has to do with two high-flying internet names that continue to defy gravity: Amazon.com (AMZN) and Alphabet (GOOGL). AMZN came out on top in the race to a $1,000 share price when it surpassed the historic milestone just a week before GOOGL did. So with both stocks now trading at the millennium level, many are left wondering if they only had $1,000, which would be the better investment? I'll give you my thoughts in this latest article. Continue Reading…

Will This Replace the Smartphone?

Jun 07, 2017

By now you know that I am always looking ahead to the next generation of everything, from things that affect our day-to-day lives to social trends to the stock market. One area that is ripe with innovation right now is technology. Some people think technology peaked when the NASDAQ hit its previous all-time high back in 2000. It did take 17 years to return to those levels, but here we are, and it’s no accident. We are now in a new phase of the Technology Revolution, and there are plenty of NexGen companies leading the way. Continue Reading…

Buying FIT Is Catching a Falling Knife

Jun 02, 2017

If there is one strategy that I know does not work, it’s attempting to call a bottom in a downward-trending stock. And it’s even more difficult trying to buy at a new all-time low when the stock has been spiraling out of control. That’s exactly what anyone considering buying Fitbit (FIT), which hit a fresh low on Wednesday, is doing. This stock has been in an ominous downtrend for a year and a half now, and while I don't see the company going bankrupt any time in the near future, I'm certainly not a buyer right now. Continue Reading…

TSLA: A NexGen Company Worth Watching

Jun 01, 2017

Not long ago there was a company that Wall Street loved to hate. It was losing money and doing things differently than anyone had seen before. Earlier this week, that company’s share price hit $1,000. Any idea what I’m talking about? That’s right… Amazon (AMZN). I'm bringing this up because there’s another company that’s defying gravity and the doubters. Tesla (TSLA) broke through a triple-top pattern to an all-time high on Tuesday. The breakout came on above-average volume – a very bullish signal. Continue Reading…

Time to Start Making Money In Self-Driving Vehicles

May 31, 2017

I’ll admit that even I was skeptical about self-driving cars until just a couple of years ago. Most people still can’t quite imagine walking outside, having your car pick you up and then driving you to your destination. We’re still not quite there, but we will be sooner than a lot of people realize. What turned me from a skeptic into a believer – at least in the investment sense – is when I started to notice the increasing amount of money flowing into this futuristic technology. Continue Reading…

F Looks to Capture the Self-Driving Market

May 28, 2017

Ford Motor (F) made a shift toward the next-generation of vehicles on Monday when it replaced CEO Mark Fields with Jim Hackett. Normally a change in leadership wouldn’t be this noteworthy, but Hackett is the former head of Ford Smart Mobility – the division focused on connected and autonomous vehicles. But does the CEO change and new direction make Ford a buy? I'll give you my thoughts on that question, and we'll take a closer look at the company from both a technical and fundamental perspective. Continue Reading…
