Augmented Reality: The Birth of a $162 Billion Boom

The early bird gets the worm, just as the early investor reaps the rewards. Stocks like Himax Technologies (HIMX) may not look healthy at the moment — even with a PEG ratio of 0.55 — but it’s all about buying before the big news. What’s most exciting is the company’s involvement in augmented reality, which can blur […]

Can the Donald Trump Rally Continue?

It’s a question we’ve all asked. But while there’s still tremendous excitement of the Trump-abilities (sorry!), we have to consider that the markets weren’t just running on that catalyst. The other monster catalysts at the time were corporate earnings. The bad news at the time was that second quarter earnings weren’t likely to match the […]

The Better Safe Haven – Gold or Bitcoin?

“I’m kicking myself for not buying bitcoin.  Too bad I don’t have a time machine.” It’s the typical response I hear when I tell people how much they could have made just since 2017 began, let alone what they could have made when it traded at pennies in 2012. But let’s just say not many […]

Solar Stocks: The Technical Picture Many Traders Missed

Never ignore the downtrodden, we noted in late March 2017. At the time, we were talking about solar stocks, many of which had been left for dead, ignored at historic lows.  Many became ridiculously oversold on a perfect storm of lower gas prices, concerns the government would phase out subsidies, as well as crushing amounts […]

How to Spot Where Breakouts Will Happen

Months ago, the drug industry was in a state of panic. Between tweets from Hillary Clinton, and comments from Donald Trump’s that the industry was “getting away with murder” investors became unnerved for quite some time. There were even fears that pricing controls could wreak havoc on the sector, too. However, most of that, we […]

Technical and Fundamental Analysis: The Case Against Oil

It became tough to feel bad for oil bulls. In early 2017, they had every opportunity to see the writing on the wall.  Yet, they chose to ignore the warning signs.  They failed to understand that there was still far too much supply on market, and not a significant amount of demand. Traders thought we’d […]

The Biggest Reason Why Investors Never Become Rich

If you want to be a millionaire, that’s great. I wish you all the best of luck. But you won’t get there if you don’t take the time to learn, practice, or even allow emotion to dictate how you trade.  It takes discipline in the end.  Without it, you’ll never reap the rewards that many […]

Oprah Cannot Save This Stock Either

It’s that time of the year again. We make our New Year’s resolution to shed weight after gorging ourselves on food between Thanksgiving, the office parties, and the December holidays. We begin to feel fat and get upset when clothes no longer fit. Then we promise ourselves next year will be different. We’re going to exercise. We’ll go […]
