  • A Chart Only Shown to Master Technicians

    6 days ago
    Over the past few days, I've read countless headlines about the Greece's "shocking, surprise sell-off" and frankly, it's driving me a little nuts. Surprise? Really? Just last week, I pointed out that the folks who have been telling you everything is hunky dory, were actually selling off stocks ahead of this "unpredictable black swan event."

  • The Only Stock You Can Believe In Right Now

    27 days ago
    We're now 17 weeks into the 2015 "Dead Zone" wherein no one really believes stocks will go any higher, but no one wants to sell out yet -- because there really isn't any other place to put your cash. Bonds are tanking and the dollar isn't climbing right now, so even staying in cash is a losing proposition. And don't pitch gold to me right now.

  • Which Market Has the U.S. Beat Hands Down?

    1 month ago
    Today's column is a tale of two markets. On the one hand, we have the tired U.S. economy and a stock market that's about to ride it into a ditch. And then, there's an enormous overseas market that's almost never mentioned in the U.S. press.

  • LULU is Nobody’s “Best Idea”

    5 hours ago
    Today, Guggenheim declared that Lululemon (LULU - NASDAQ) was its "best idea" because of strong same-store sales growth and continuing momentum. Seriously, you know it's a lousy summer when the best idea you can gin up is an overpriced stretch-pants store. Not that we haven't looked into LULU ourselves.

  • It’s Monday, and Europe is Still Open for Business

    1 day ago
    Yesterday, Greek citizens followed the whims of their rogue, rock-star, motorcycle-riding finance minister Yanis Varoufakis and voted "Oxi" -- "No" -- to a European bailout proposal that wasn't even on the table anymore.

  • Quickly Leverage This Failed Potash Deal

    5 days ago
    Today's tip could almost qualify as a Seinfeld episode because it's kind of about nothing -- or rather, about something that's not happening.

  • McCormick Has Just the Right Spice

    6 days ago
    The hot pot in Greece has cooked up a little homegrown treat... McCormick & Company (MKC - NYSE) is a local favorite of ours. Driving the streets around the spice maker's plant in Timonium is simply an amazing experience. This week, MKC beat handily on earnings but missed by a hair on revenue due to the strong U.S. dollar.

  • Three on a Match for Macy’s?

    7 days ago
    There's a kernel of truth in the old superstition about lighting three cigarettes with one match. Back in the trench of WWI, the thought was that the first soldier lighting up in the evening would catch the attention of a sniper, the second guy would offer position and range, and the third guy was a sure kill.

  • Predicting the Bottom for 3D Printing

    6 days ago
    The invention of 3D printing seemed like a technology capable of revolutionizing our world. In some ways it already has, but expensive printers have prevented it from evolving into something everyone can use. This failure to adopt is evident in the price of 3D printer stocks such as Stratasys (SSYS - NASDAQ).

    8 days ago
    One of the oldest (and best) trading aphorisms is "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful." After today's 2% crusher in the S&P 500 (SPX), there's plenty of fear to go around. While many investors are caught long and panic selling, the sharp traders out there are looking to buy at bargain prices.
