AMD Is on the Verge of a Breakout

Jun 21, 2017

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has been on the move this week following the unveiling of its next generation of server chips. The new Epyc line of chips is said to offer higher performance at lower prices, and several big name companies – including Microsoft Azure, Dropbox and Baidu – are expected to use them in their data centers. A number of research analysts have raise their price targets on AMD based on the anticipated success of the new products. As a result, the shares climbed as much as 8.4% to a new seven-week high.

NFLX’s Dip is a Buying Opportunity

Jun 17, 2017

The stock market is made up of two different camps: the bulls and the bears. One group says that stocks are going higher, while the other urges you to run for cover. This back and forth has been going on for decades, so it’s no surprise that two very different viewpoints emerged when Netflix (NFLX) recently took a 12% spill. But the part that’s most interesting is the fact that both opinions came from the same side – the bulls. I’m neither a groupie nor a hater of the FANG group, so check out this latest article to get my thoughts on Netflix. Continue Reading…

CEO Swap Not Enough to Get GE Moving Again

Jun 15, 2017

General Electric (GE) made headlines on Monday when it announced that current CEO Jeff Immelt will be stepping down. Taking his place is John Flannery, the president and CEO of GE Healthcare. The stock’s initial reaction was positive, rallying 3.6% on heavy volume. The shares have drifted lower since, although they continue to hold above the pre-announcement level. Now the big question is this: What will happen to General Electric’s company structure and stock price under the new leadership? Continue Reading…

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…
