My 2 Cents on the Alibaba IPO

For the past few weeks, the financial media has not stopped talking about the Chinese company Alibaba, which is going public this Friday. My biggest concern is that the retail investor is going to get screwed because they have been brainwashed that this will be the greatest IPO ever and they HAVE to buy it. [...]

Profit Taking In January?

90% of your success as a trader should come from the work, research and effort you put in OUTSIDE of market hours. That's why I recommend traders do post analysis of their work and study market history. Since 2013 was a very strong year for the markets, we could possibly see some profit taking in January [...]

Predictions for 2012

Last year, in my 2011 predictions post, I said 3 stocks would double ($SODA +154%, $JAZZ +139% and $MCP +72%).

A Few Words of Caution

Every night, I go through my stock screens and look at approximately 1,000 stocks. Why? Because this is the way I was taught to evaluate the overall health of the market. If I find tons of strong fundamental companies building sound technical bases, breaking out on strong volume, and holding their gains, I feel confident about exposing my capital [...]

Market Continues to Strengthen

On February 11th, I wrote that the market pullback of late Jan/early February had the feel of an 8-12% intermediate-term correction rather than an overall top (click here to read). Since then, I recommended to SLOWLY get back into the market and increase your investment levels as you begin to see a profit. Assuming you [...]

The Upcoming Rally

I feel the market will breakout to the upside over the next 3-6 weeks. Here are my reasons and some stocks to watch: 1) Big Caps: I have said all along "watch the action of the Big Caps." Why? Because the large institutions traffic in this area and watching these stocks usually shows us what they [...]
