The Ultimate NexGen Trend: Living on Mars

Sep 20, 2017

Back in 1961, President Kennedy made it a goal of the United States to put a man on the moon by the end of that decade. Incredibly, the nation did it. On July 20, 1969, the Apollo 11 spacecraft landed on the moon. The next-generation innovations that came out of the space race were amazing. Now that we’ve conquered the moon, the new space explorers and some private corporation visionaries have their sights set on Mars. It’s not too soon to start thinking about how we can make money off of this trend. Continue Reading…

3 Retail Stocks Perking Back Up

Sep 17, 2017

After taking a beating from online retail giant Amazon (AMZN) over the last couple of years, the brick-and-mortar stores are finally starting to stage a comeback. The SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) is up 9% from its August 21 low, easily outpacing the overall market. Nordstrom (JWN) got a boost following news that the company may be going private, but that isn’t the only retail stock that’s started to perk up recently. Let’s take a look at three other big-name retailers that may finally be waking from their slumber. Continue Reading…

Avoid CYOU As It Lags the Chinese Internet Industry

Sep 15, 2017

The Chinese internet sector has been red hot since the beginning of August, with the KraneShares CSI China Internet ETF (KWEB) up 8% over the last six weeks. There are several stocks that could make for interesting opportunities here, but today I’d like to talk about one that hasn’t made the cut and should be approached with caution. Changyou.com Limited (CYOU) is a Chinese developer and operator of online games with exposure to two of my favorite NexGen sectors: eSports and emerging markets e-commerce. Continue Reading…

Resilient People, Resilient Market, Resilient Economy

Sep 13, 2017

This week we need to talk about something that may not be next generation, but it is certainly once-in-a-generation, if that even. For the first time since weather records started being kept 166 years ago, two Category 4 Atlantic hurricanes hit the United States in the same year. Hurricanes can have a negative effect on the economy right after they hit, but a few months down the road, the rebuilding efforts can actually be a boost to the economy. Continue Reading…

Shifting Reality Is Definitely a NexGen Opportunity

Sep 06, 2017

A few months ago, I bought a house in a way that would have seemed unimaginable to buyers as recently as a few years ago. Now, I’m using other NexGen innovations to furnish it. One in particular is really cool. The question is, how do you know what will fit? Good old-fashioned measuring still works, but even better – and more fun – is using innovations made possible by augmented reality (AR). Continue Reading…

3 Gold Stocks to Buy as the Fed Tightens

Sep 02, 2017

Even though the Fed may not raise interest rates in the near future, the bank is still likely to start reducing its $4.5 trillion balance sheet by selling $10 billion a month in the form of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities. This boost in supply could push bond prices lower, which in turn would allow interest rates to rise. The end result is bullish for gold stocks. Let's take a closer look at three that could continue to be winners as the Fed unloads its balance sheet. Continue Reading…

KR Lacks Near-Term Potential

Sep 01, 2017

Any time I analyze a stock as an investment opportunity, it must meet three critical criteria – fundamentals, technicals and what I like to call the intangibles. Each plays a role in a company’s future potential, and if it’s missing even one we’re better off moving on to the next stock. I recently ran well-known grocery store operator Kroger (KR) through my strict tests and the stock failed miserably on all accounts. Let’s take a closer look at why. Continue Reading…

Avoiding the Headline Trap

Aug 30, 2017

As I was returning from Europe on Monday – after doing some important research that I’ll be sharing with you in the coming days – the emails started coming in. North Korea had just launched a missile that flew over Japan, and stock futures were already down just 90 minutes after the regular trading session had ended. As expected, the markets opened lower on Tuesday. I get it. When headlines are swirling and stocks are moving, the immediate impulse is to do something. Unfortunately, that almost always works against you. Continue Reading…

Is MOMO’s Dip an Opportunity?

Aug 25, 2017

Momo (MOMO) reported what appeared to be a stellar second-quarter earnings report on Monday. Not only did the numbers blow analysts’ top- and bottom-line estimates out of the water, but management also raised guidance for the current third quarter. Still, investors were quick to smash the shares, sending MOMO down 20% the following day. Growth certainly wasn’t the issue here, as the Chinese social networking company reported adjusted earnings that nearly tripled year-over-year and revenue that was up 215%. Continue Reading…

Expect PANW to Make a Big Post-Earnings Move

Aug 25, 2017

Palo Alto Networks (PANW) has a history of making big moves after reporting earnings, but unfortunately not always in the same direction. The stock rallied 17% the day following the latest release, and it was down 24% after the one prior. With its next set of quarterly numbers scheduled to be released on August 29, many investors are trying to determine which direction the move will take this time. To help figure that out, let’s break PANW down using my three-pronged approach. We'll start with the technicals. Continue Reading…
