  • Tale Of Penny Stocks: Pump And Dump In Harsh Times

    The current bear market, led by the energy sector, will play out steadily. Strong companies will eventually rebound as excess supply dynamics are worked out. What will NOT rebound is penny stocks. Take a look at my top SELL/SHORT picks. In general (but not always), stocks under $5 tend to do poorly when the fundamentals are simply not there.

    A few of the short ideas came from other SA (seeking alpha) articles. The position recommended is opposite that of the calls made. Remember: articles are not recommendations, they are a starting point for ideas and for thinking. You owe it up to you from that point on.

  • 2nd Quarter 2014 Performance

    A late recovery in shares of Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) helped boost the Kapitall model portfolio's return for the first half of 2014.

    This led to the portfolio's outperformance relative to the S&P 500, but this is not an excuse for investors to act complacent. The "melt up" in markets on very low volume and on even less engaging readers suggests elevated risks. Expect a sudden decline in the markets, with any negative news being the trigger.

    For now, this analyst will enjoy the boost in rankings on TipRanks:

    "Ranked #66 out of 3594 Bloggers (Ranked #76 out of 6751 total experts)"

    This represents a move up by 7 spots.
