$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!

  • SPY Puts We Recommended Are Up 331%

    5 days ago
    There was an old Chinese curse my dad used to wish on people when I was a kid... "May you live in interesting times." The gist of the idea was that stability was a good thing, and change was a bad thing.

  • Flat is Not the New Up

    12 days ago
    According to his latest research note, David Kostin from Goldman Sachs (GS - NYSE) is confused because his clients are seeing things he is somehow missing... One surprising question that clients have asked recently is the prospect for a US recession in 2016. An economic contraction is decidedly NOT in our forecast.

  • Your Best Hedge Against Mainstream Signs of Trouble

    19 days ago
    For months now, I've warned that the market's looking mighty toppy. You can make all the arguments you like about coiled springs and consolidations, but if you permanently cap off upside, stocks become all risk and no payoff.

  • 16 Reasons to Buy Apple and a Couple Other Beaten-Down Tech Stocks

    26 days ago
    I've been searching far and wide to figure out what's soured traders on a certain famous tech stock this week. It really is a slow news week. The Fed won't meet again for two months, and Congress is on summer break... Greece has receded to the back burner. There's talk of another bailout some two weeks out, but that's pretty much the norm now.

  • This ETF Can’t Hide Behind the Fed’s Blather

    1 month ago
    The biggest item on traders' minds is, of course, the two-day FOMC meeting going on right now. Earlier in the week, Fed Chair Janet Yellen gave us another of her "I see strength, sort of, and will probably raise rates some time in the next six months, unless I don't" statements.

  • Connect the Dots: China to Oil to…?

    1 month ago
    It's time to play "connect the dots" and find the hidden treasure. Yeah, I know, it sounds kind of like a children's game. But I really am serious, so work with me here because what we're looking for is a concealed trading opportunity... Our first dot is China.

  • Is Twitter Finally Really Ready to Double Up?

    8 hours ago
    Wall Street continues to bottom feed after last week's carnage. Today, SunTrust upgraded Twitter (TWTR - NYSE) from "Neutral" to "Buy" because "the risk/reward equation appears quite compelling following the stock's tumble, as well as what it calls a series of positive catalysts."

  • Big Lots Picked the Perfect Day to Beat the Analysts

    3 days ago
    We've gotten a good bit of mail asking how we can recommend calls when we have a bearish outlook. Allow us to explain... One of our core principles is that asset price oscillates within a band. That applies to indexes, sectors, and individual stocks. Basically, there are always going to be top sellers and bottom feeders in every kind of market.

  • Is CSX an Oversold Opportunity or a Bull Trap?

    4 days ago
    Is this a real rebound or a dead cat bounce? Honestly, we just don't know yet. But, we do know that Wall Street is on a bottom feeding binge today. Stifel Nicolaus just jumped on CSX (CSX - NYSE)'s slide as a great excuse to upgrade the rail road operator from "Hold" to "Buy."

  • Back in the Real World, Chicos Just Beat Across the Board

    5 days ago
    The markets continue to drop and pop, drop and pop -- peeling away huge chunks one hour, regaining ground the next, and throwing it all away when you step out for a cup of coffee. The problem is, we really need coffee in a market like this.

  • Best Buy Surges on the Chinese Snap Back

    6 days ago
    To paraphrase the classic Brady Bunch line, "China, China, China!" First, it was all about "China collapsing and taking the rest of us with it." Then, Beijing cut rates again and now Wall Street thinks the Fed is too spooked to bump our rates next month. So suddenly, it's all sweetness and light again.

  • The Headlines Scream Sell, But the Back Room is Buying

    7 days ago
    "It's the end of the world as we know it..." Great song lyric, but lousy investing advice. Maybe this is the beginning of the next great bear market. Goodness only knows, we've been calling for this pullback for long enough.

  • Has CONSOL Energy Seen the Bottom?

    9 seconds ago
    Even though it's a new week, many traders are still reeling from last week's fireworks. There's still quite a bit of uncertainty in the market, which is keeping option premiums sky high. One trader is taking advantage of this uncertainty using a sharp strategy with CONSOL Energy (CNX - NYSE), a badly beaten-down coal mining company.

  • Sharp Trader Making a Killing on Abbott Labs

    3 days ago
    The market took a bit of a breather today with the S&P 500 (SPX) rallying a measly 1.2 points. While the action was slower than the rest of the week, some sharp option traders were still placing some heavy bets. Abbott Laboratories (ABT - NYSE) is one of the biggest pharmaceutical names in the business, but today it was moving around like a biotech.

  • Does Oil’s Surge Mark the Bottom in Energy?

    4 days ago
    The rally was on once again today, led by an unlikely sector -- energy. Oil prices surged over 9%, and some sharp money traders are thinking the bottom may finally be in. One customer made a huge bullish bet earlier today on oil services giant Halliburton (HAL - NYSE). This customer bought 22,000 HAL October 40 calls for $1.50 apiece.

    5 days ago
    The entire energy sector has been in a downward spiral for over a year, but now after the market correction we're starting to see signs of a potential bottom. One sign was the announcement this morning that oil services giant Schlumberger (SLB - NYSE) was buying out Cameron International (CAM - NYSE) for $14.8 billion in cash and stock.

  • This Trader Stands to Make $21.6 Million on Mondelez

    6 days ago
    The Great Correction of 2015 continued today. The market opened higher, only to see all that strength fade into yet another red close. Trading this market right now is not for the faint of heart, and that's why some sharp traders are choosing not to focus on the short-term but instead looking far into the future.

  • HAS Follow-Up: Trader Makes Millions

    7 days ago
    While most of Wall Street was panicking today, one sharp trader was locking in a huge profit. Earlier this month, we told you about a possible correction in store for Hasbro.
