$48,000 Profit Using Our Free Research

Yes, you did alert us that Buffet was rumored to be interested in Kraft. That coupled with the buyer of 10,000 June 67.50 calls convinced me to follow this trade. Lowered my cost basis with 2 more buys as the price went down. Made $48,000 on this trade! Keep ’em coming!

  • This Dead Analyst Says the Industrials are Dead Too

    4 days ago
    We've heard a lot from Fed Chair Janet Yellen since last week, but it all amounts to one thing: No rate increases anytime soon. First there was the Fed's post-meeting statement, which noted (with some pride) that the pace of the economy picked up but fretted that the labor market slowed a bit.

  • Short FXI While You Wait for The Fed

    11 days ago
    We're in a peculiar position that occurs every few months when this column's deadline falls just ahead of a major two-day Fed meeting. There are a several ways to cope with this... I could sit on the newsletter issue for a few days, but then my schedule gets hopelessly complicated, and frankly I'm a creature of habit.

  • Will a Power Play Doom Cisco?

    18 days ago
    Just what are a company's most important assets? The simplest answer is, a product to sell and a market to sell it to. In real life, it's a tad more complicated than that. You probably need a plant and trained work force to make your product, and power to run the machines.

  • Can Wells Fargo Survive the Housing Recovery?

    25 days ago
    "History rhymes..." You've heard that old adage a thousand times, usually attributed to Mark Twain. Honestly, no one has ever found it in any of Twain's works, speeches, or letters. On the other hand, I have tracked down this poem, published anonymously in the October 1845 edition of the Christian Remembrancer.

  • Is TOL in a Housing Bubble?

    1 month ago
    In past issues, we've documented all of the various dark clouds forming on the horizon: China slowing, Japan slowing, Europe fragmenting, Brazil and Venezuela in recession, flat growth and weak earnings here at home, and a pending Fed rate increase on top of all that.

  • Why is Wall Street Selling This Stock’s Great News?

    1 month ago
    Retail stocks have been getting punished with one ugly quarterly report after another. So you might think when a well-known mega-store finally delivered the best news all month, prices would take off, right? The answer will shock you, and tell you a lot about what's going on in the market right now.

  • Financial SPDR Puts Proved the Perfect Brexit Hedge

    2 days ago
    The Brexit vote results are in, and everyone is running around like headless chickens. Frankly, it's a ridiculous response. Today gave us one of the worst daily opens in recent history, but it wasn't even the worst week of 2016 -- and it was, and remains, completely tradable. Last week, we gave Bottarelli Research LEAPS members this advice:

  • VRX Just Hit Bottom Courtesy of JPM

    3 days ago
    We often wonder if there are any grownups left at Wall Street's biggest banks. Early last spring, Barclays, Mizuho, Nomura, CIBC, Piper Jaffray, Canaccord Genuity, RBC Capital Markets, and TD Securities all downgraded Valeant Pharmaceuticals (VRX - NYSE) over its predatory pricing scandal. We're not saying it wasn't justified, just a tad late.

  • FedEx’s $70 Million Loss Still “Beat” the Analysts

    3 days ago
    We're faced with a familiar question today: "What matters more, beating Wall Street's expectations or actual losses?" FedEx (FDX - NYSE) was just lauded by a news service ("cheerleader") for beating on revenue by 1.56% and earnings by 0.61%. And CEO Fred Smith claims "Fiscal 2016 was a successful year for FedEx in many ways..."

  • Is the United Continental Buzz Justified?

    5 days ago
    All of a sudden there's lots of chatter around airlines. Yesterday, Credit Suisse (CS - NYSE) upgraded Spirit Airlines (SAVE - NASDAQ) due to a potential 64% rally lurking deep in the technicals.

  • Is Spirit Airlines Ready to Launch?

    6 days ago
    This week opened with a bang, as global markets were boosted by a new poll hinting that Great Britain might stay in the EU after all. Bottarelli Research members were perfectly positioned across the board, gaining 29% winner on AVB calls, 60% on WHR calls, and 46% fading gold miners. But that's not all that's going on right now.

  • Can Viacom’s Wall Street Friends Hide the Truth?

    8 days ago
    There's a fascinating battle going on over the future of media giant Viacom (VIAB - NASDAQ). Earlier this week, we reported that Viacom eternal emperor Sumner Redstone was clearing five directors off the board, including CEO Philippe Dauman (whom Redstone "no longer trusts").

  • Sharp Paper Gets Blindsided by Brexit

    1 day ago
    We're proponents of following where the biggest players are putting their money, but even for the sharpest traders it doesn't always pan out. Last Friday, we told you about huge bets on UK-centered ETFs banking on Britain voting to remain in the European Union. As you most likely know, that didn't happen.

  • Already Up Double, This Stock is Still Rising

    2 days ago
    Poor breadth was a common gripe about the stock market in 2015. The S&P 500 (SPX) finished the year with a negligible loss, but it was only because mega-cap stocks like Amazon.com (AMZN - NASDAQ), Facebook (FB - NASDAQ), and Google (GOOG - NASDAQ) all had bellwether years. So far in 2016, it's an entirely different story.

  • Will the S&P 500 Top 2,200 by August?

    3 days ago
    The stock market has been all over the place leading up to the Brexit referendum tomorrow. Polls portray voters to be neck and neck, but market activity paints an entirely different picture. On Friday, we tipped you to all kinds of bullish activity in European ETFs.

  • Yet Another Airline Getting Some Love

    4 days ago
    Airline fever is sky-high right now. From Spirit Airlines to United Continental, the sector is generating plenty of buzz. And not to be outdone, Southwest is now getting some love. Southwest Airlines (LUV - NYSE) has pulled back as much as 17% since the recovery highs set in April.

  • PDC Energy Making Noise on Unexpected Volume

    5 days ago
    PDC Energy (PDCE - NASDAQ) is likely a stock you've never heard of, but you might want to add it to your watchlist. PDC is a very lightly traded oil and gas exploration company (average daily volume of 1.26 million shares), but it made some noise in the option pits today when 2,500 PDCE July 55 calls were purchased for $2.25 each.

  • Sharp Money Says Britain Isn’t Leaving

    8 days ago
    "Brexit" fears continue to permeate every inch of the market. Should Britain decide to leave, it would in all likelihood spell bad news for global markets left without confidence of what the future holds. However, voting to remain could catalyze a strong recovery bounce.
