Augmented Reality: The Birth of a $162 Billion Boom

The early bird gets the worm, just as the early investor reaps the rewards.

Amazon.com (AMZN): It’s a Gift at these Prices

Again, herd mentality has proven itself to be a portfolio killer.

In October 2016, Amazon.com missed earnings with EPS of 52 cents, as compared to estimates for 78 cents. Meanwhile, its $32.7 billion revenue beat estimates for $32.69 billion and was up 29% year over year.

Unfortunately, it was guidance that...

This Stock Didn’t Care Who Won the Election at All

The election is finally over.

Cash is moving back from the sidelines after traders pulled billions from mutual funds, or shifted to cash-only positions.

The Dow Jones hit an incredible all time high of 18,934.05.

Commodities are racing higher. 

Best of all...

A Cheap, Growing, But Overlooked Semiconductor Stock

Oftentimes, even the best stocks are unfairly punished.

Even with outstanding earnings, growth potential, and cheap valuation, they’re left ignored.

Take this stock, for example:

Sports Betting: Could Congress Force these Stocks Higher in 2017?

Online sports gambling has been illegal for years.

In fact, the Interstate Wire Act of 1961 makes all sports betting online a federal crime. 

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 banned sports betting, too.

But that could all change -- and soon:

Nike (NKE): This Stock is Ready to Run… and Fast

Oftentimes, we’re told to ignore 52-week-lows on the idea that stocks making new lows will continue to make new lows. 

We’re told, “Never buy a stock hitting a 52-week low…”

“Stocks in downtrends tend to stay in downtrends…”

“It’s too risky… It’s not safe…”

“Any stock hitting a 52-week low will always be weak…”

Or, “nothing is more destructive to amateur investors than thinking that a stock trading near a 52-week low is a good buy…”

But that’s not true.  In fact, it’s laughable. 

Ulta Salon (ULTA): Proof it’s best to Avoid the Herd

Herd mentality is a portfolio killer.

All of a sudden, every one around you starts selling the stock you may also hold.

So you decide to join them.

Unfortunately, like many of us, you never stop to ask yourself why.

We just do it because...

A $175 million legend rises again

The first time something like this happened was 1983.

Two trading legends, Richard Dennis and William Eckhart were arguing over whether traders were born or were they made.

Dennis, who had turned his initial stake of $5,000 into over $100 million believed...

This Stock Doesn’t Care Who Wins the U.S. Election

It may not have been one of the most exciting stocks.

It never had a cure for cancer, or anything revolutionary.  But what it did offer was a handsome return for smart, patient investors.

The company – Vulcan Materials (VMC) really isn’t anything special at all.

Except for the fact, it is…
