$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!

  • How Long Can Gold Run?

    3 days ago
    We're seeing a really crazy battle this year between two opposing trading theorems. On the one side, we see folks selling stocks like mad. There are a plethora of theories as to why: Some say it's China leading the world into a global recession. Certainly the long Chinese slow down is responsible in part for the fall of commodities and oil.

  • This “Extraordinary Event” Could Spark a 35% Jump

    10 days ago
    I try not to be too much of an alarmist, especially when it comes to "the disease crisis of the week." But each year, we seem to experience such an event. And yet, for the most part, we're still here and society is carrying on with its daily business well enough.

  • Japan’s Dangerous Split Personality

    17 days ago
    I've written at great length about the U.S. market's short-term opportunities and long-term risk. So much so, in fact, that I suspect some readers have become numb to it. It's kind of like explaining water to a fish -- it's so ubiquitous, it's hard to wrap our minds around it.

  • How to Beat the U.S. Recession

    24 days ago
    Today we're going to talk about the "R" word. That's right -- recession. Frankly, there's a good chance that the U.S is already in that woeful state. And once you accept this fact, the market's recent actions make a whole lot more sense.

  • The Only U.S. Energy Player That’s Rising

    1 month ago
    $30 a barrel! Seriously, oil hasn't been this cheap in more than a decade. And gas at the pump is now well under $2 per gallon. In fact, you can buy a barrel of oil for about what it costs to fill your gas tank! And every time they say it's the bottom, it drops another nickel or two.

  • This “Sick Bird” Just Delivered 300% Gains

    1 month ago
    Well that was an interesting open for 2016, what with the S&P 500 (SPX) opening the trading year with a fast -2.38% loss. To see the market drop like that coming out of the gate was certainly stimulating, but not really all that surprising.

  • Starbucks Anticipates a Hot, Sweet Valentine’s Day Boost

    1 day ago
    TheStreet's Thomas Ward has an interesting explanation why short-sellers get the short end of the stick when they mess around with Starbucks (SBUX - NASDAQ)... When Starbucks (SBUX) was an emerging company years ago, I tried to short the stock twice because it was selling at a ridiculous P/E multiple north of 40x... Both times, I got burned.

  • This Stock Actually Gets Rewarded for Beating Expectations

    2 days ago
    As traders try to sort out Fed Chair Janet Yellen's confusing congressional testimony, the market continues to fluctuate wildly. She's informed us that everything is lovely, except for the things that aren't lovely.

  • Johnson & Johnson Perks Up on Wrong News

    3 days ago
    Traders cannot seem to figure out how to price stocks this week... This morning, Time Warner (TWX - NYSE) missed on revenue, beat on earnings, gave a forward outlook above expectations, and raised its quarterly dividend by 15%. That's actually pretty good these days, all things considered. But TWX lost -11% at the open on this news.

  • If Visa Can Round This Corner, It Could Rally 37%

    4 days ago
    The market is still trying to parse out the latest stats and talk from the Fed. Yesterday, stocks fell because strong employment numbers were likely to push the Fed to raise rates. But gold spiked because weak economic numbers were certain to push the Fed to hold or even cut. Same day, same data, two totally opposite trading theorems. Welcome to 2016.

  • A Cheap Excuse to Buy a Cheap Stock

    5 days ago
    In 2015, GoPro (GPRO NASDAQ) was a dream come true -- but a nightmare we couldn't wake up from. Kind of like Cam Newton's season. To soon? Alright, we confess we rooted for the old guy to go out on top. GoPro's nifty toys excited everyone for a while, but they're expensive and reached initial saturation quicker than expected.

  • This “Paper Tiger” Has the Numbers to Beat Wall Street’s Funk

    8 days ago
    Traders are in one hell of a bad mood today... News Corp (NWSA - NASDAQ) announced earnings in line with estimates, and 169% quarterly earnings growth year-over-year. But that last figure represents a one-cent miss by analysts' estimates. So NWSA is down some -8% this morning.

  • Does Unusual Credit Suisse Order Signal Tide is Turning for European Banks?

    19 hours ago
    U.S. financial stocks have taken it on the chin so far in 2016, but things have been far worse for their European brethren. For example, JPMorgan Chase (JPM - NYSE) is down 12.8% on the year but that's a pittance compared to Credit Suisse (CS - NYSE) which is down 36.4%.

  • Can Microsoft Offer Shelter From This Chaos?

    2 days ago
    Chaos remains the name of the game on Wall Street as the market continues to move wildly up and down, often times in the same day. These crazy waters can be difficult to navigate, and in these situations it's often best to just "keep it simple, stupid."

  • AAL Follow-Up: Trend Line Signal Rewards 41% in 2 Days

    3 days ago
    Two days ago we asked if American Airlines (AAL - NASDAQ) was primed to fly higher when a sharp options trader made a statement by purchasing 10,000 AAL August 45 calls for $1.42 apiece. This trade jumped out at us, but what piqued our interest was the chart we shared with our subscribers (shown below). Bottarelli Research Translation:

  • Is Cisco Next to Detonate the Earnings Minefield?

    4 days ago
    This earnings season has been a minefield for tech stocks. While some managed not to trip (FB and MSFT rallied 15% and 6% respectively), others have detonated land mines (LNKD -44%, AMZN - 8%). As the announcements wind down, traders are on the lookout for what just might be the next stock to get pulverized.

  • Is American Airlines Primed to Fly Higher?

    5 days ago
    The continued weakness in the S&P 500 (SPX) is wreaking havoc on stocks across the board. In an environment like this, strong stocks are thrown out with alongside the poor as liquidity becomes king. While square traders are puking up stocks at solid support levels, the sharp traders are making heavy bets on these stocks rebounding.

  • After Today’s Collapse, Can LNKD Bounce Back 50%?

    8 days ago
    All eyes were on LinkedIn (LNKD - NYSE) today. Yesterday afternoon LNKD reported earnings, and they weren't great (to say the least). As a result, LNKD shares dropped an unbelievable 43.6%. This isn't some flash-in-the-pan biotech stock we're talking about -- as of yesterday LNKD had a market cap of over $25 billion.
