Expect PANW to Make a Big Post-Earnings Move

Aug 25, 2017

To help figure that out, let’s break PANW down using my three-pronged approach. We'll start with the technicals. Continue Reading…

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.

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…

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.

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…

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…
