Crazy market out there, but this volatility shouldn’t have you heading for the hills. There are still plenty of ways to take new profits to the bank. The key is finding stocks that will rise above the rest. And one …

With the spotlight on retail earnings and the subsequent fallout of earnings disappointment, it’s easy to forget what more important trends are driving trader and investor sentiments – the kind of trends that highlight how you can still pull in …
This week’s Buy, Sell, or Hold is special one because the markets are acting crazy – and not in a good way. After Tuesday’s dead cat bounce where the S&P 500 saw a nice 2% bump and the Nasdaq jumped …

Inflation, the Fed raising rates, market volatility, the decline of big tech stocks, and earnings prospects… It’s all noise – a cacophony deafening the markets and obscuring opportunities. Narratives, stories, explanations, and analyses based on interpretations of headlines and economic …

We are in the middle of what some are calling a “grain crisis.” Staple crops like corn and wheat, if farmers can plant them at all, are struggling under severe weather conditions. Canada’s “Corn Belt,” for example, is experiencing an …

It takes two things to get ahead of the markets – an insider who knows how the Wall Street bigwigs work and how to find the stocks that are going to outperform the market, before they’ve taken off. Shah has …

Friday’s rally was a nice change after last week’s volatile trading. Stocks roared ahead during Friday’s session, with the Nasdaq and S&P 500 jumping 3.39% and 2.29% in the first hour of trading. I’m happy to see it, but I …
It’s a war out there, people. A bloody battle to keep the markets from going under. As I recorded today’s BS.H, the Dow and S&P 500 were down, the Nasdaq was flatlining, and stocks in almost every sector were under …
Arc of a Diver, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Steve Winwood’s groundbreaking solo album, came on the heels of a series of successes that began when he, at age 15, joined the Spencer Davis Group. With Traffic (inducted into …
The whole stock market is falling. The Dow is down 12% off its highs in January, the S&P 500 is down 16%, and the Nasdaq, which once ruled the stock market, is down 26%.
It’s ugly out there, but I’m still playing the markets – and you should be, too.
Bull or bear market, there are plenty of ways to turn a profit in the stock market. While others, fearful of the downward trend, run for the hills, you can set in motion two profitable plays (one of which could yield a 100% gain).

As I write this, 2022 is shaping up to be the year of volatility. While that may frighten timid investors, I see it as a huge opportunity. Thursday’s rout sent the Nasdaq, S&P 500, and DOW tumbling 4.99%, 3.56% and …
I hope you didn’t get suckered in by the Fed this week. Wednesday’s rally, which came just after the Fed announced a 50 basis point hike in the fed funds rate (instead of 75), wasn’t a sign to run back into the markets.
That was nothing but short covering. The markets are down again today and the trend is likely to continue downward until the Fed changes course. And it will.
Until then, we need to stick with what’s working, with the tried and true companies still making great earnings, to turn a profit – and I’ve got just the plays for you.

Every bond and stock investor knows at least one Wall Street saying regarding Fed policy moves. Some of them are: “Never fight the Fed,” “Follow the Fed,” and “Don’t fade the Fed.” They’re good advice, but only to a point. …
The price of oil and gas is soaring once again. According to AAA, Americans pay around $4.20 per gallon at the pump. That’s not great for us, but oil and gas companies are breaking records. Some are reporting doubled (or, …
I think 2022 and early 2023 will be the year of big tech growth stocks.
You heard me right. I said “growth” stocks, not “value” stocks.
Since mid-2021, the market started pricing in higher interest rates. That impacted the valuation of tech companies based on discounted cash flow pricing models. And that, in turn, drove prices down on most tech growth stocks.
Now though, with the U.S. economy posting negative GDP last week, the Federal Reserve will have to tread very carefully regarding its interest rate policy.
If the Fed indicates any dovish change in its longer-term interest rate policy, we could see a huge rush of capital back into big tech growth stocks.
I don’t think the Fed will change its narrative anytime soon (for risk of losing credibility). Still, traders are going to see the same opportunity I’m seeing, and that’s going to cause small rallies as traders start to position themselves for the future in big tech companies like this one.
