  • Valeant Had A Good Run

    Biotech (NASDAQ:IBB) might make a bounce back, over the next few weeks. Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) and Gilead (NASDAQ:GILD) are buys on the dip. My call for buying Valeant (NYSE:VRX) ended. VRX was $10 at the time, and peaked at $260:


    Valeant was last covered here. Timing of call was an intersect of luck meeting skill. The stock was consolidating for years, doing nothing until 2012:

    Investors feel shame losing money, but prevention is key. Cut your losses, and let your winners lead.

  • Google Faces Substantial Headwinds

    Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is up 25 percent, but its stock just formed a double top. There are problems.

    Users want higher performance and lower data consumption. Apple's browser improves on both:

    Caveat to long/short call:

    Usage on Safari browser is falling, compared to that of Chrome. Unfortunately, Safari users are big spenders on mobile.

    Basic action: Sell Google. Buy Apple

    Advanced: Target buy/sell/short-sell plan found on premium subscription here.
