1 Stock for The New Energy Revolution

She said what?! I received an exciting phone call over the weekend from a dear friend. And it’s clear that something is brewing . . . A new energy revolution! They just signed a contract to install 70 solar panels on their roof. I told my husband we were not keeping up with the Joneses…

Single Best Sign for a BIG Stock Comeback

Samsung has 50 million phones in inventory… Name-brand appliances are being sold at 40% off… Name-brand clothing is being marked down 98%… A tsunami of inventory is set to create a deflation contagion… That is going to make interest rates go low again and make growth stocks incredibly valuable as they become a scarce commodity….

Like Santa and the Easter Bunny, This Market Signal Doesn’t Exist

Alpha Investor founder Charles Mizrahi has been getting one question a lot lately… “Are we in a recession?” If you look at consumer sentiment — which is at all-time lows — you might think it’s very near on the horizon. But if you look at the strength in the job market, it’s harder to see…

Think Options Are Too Risky? Think Again…

If you’re reading this right now, chances are good you’re an options trader. And if that’s the case, I’m almost 100% certain you chose “speculation” as your objective when opening a brokerage account. Us options traders want faster, larger gains.

Practically EVERY stock out there is undervalued on some metric. And with the S&P 500 down 20%, fundamental investors are foaming at the mouth. Some have…

Don’t Throw in the Towel On Stocks — Here’s Why…

If you’re ready to throw in the towel on stocks… Please give me 30 seconds. I know stocks have suffered their worst first half of the year since 1970. I know the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are in bear markets. And I know consumer sentiment hasn’t been this low since they started tracking it in…

Is Your Trading Style Hurting Your Portfolio?

It’s summertime. It’s hot. But kids still need to get out to play. So last week, I found myself sitting on a bench at our local park. As I sat and watched my kids play, I couldn’t help but notice the other parents. One mom shouted excitedly whenever her child’s swing got really high. But…

We Found a Glitch in the Way Wall Street Hands Out These Shares

Retail investors couldn’t buy them fast enough. The calendar was filled with special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) for the past two years. Also known as blank-check firms, SPACs go public without having a business. Wall Street uses them to raise money, so they can buy a business to be chosen later. It’s a shortcut to a…

Next Time You Trade Options, Think About This…

If there’s one thing you can count on in this world, it’s that change is constant. That’s especially true in financial markets. I’m not talking about daily price swings.
