  • Are You Aware Of The Danger Hidden Within IPOs? [View article]
    Thanks for reading and commenting.

    See our prior report on Groupon here: http://seekingalpha.co...

    In this report we noted that shares could be worth as little as $2 and so far have seen nothing to change that.

  • Are You Aware Of The Danger Hidden Within IPOs? [View article]
    Thanks for reading and commenting. Agree that while there can be quality companies going public, far too many are not, yet investors can't wait to get their hands on these low quality businesses. We'll see if the events of the past week or so will tamper the IPO market for the time being.

    CaptainCapital,

    Thanks for reading. Certainly an interesting idea and here is an article from Bloomberg highlighting the CEO discussing the idea. http://tinyurl.com/q8s...

  • Best And Worst Q3'15: Consumer Discretionary ETFs, Mutual Funds And Key Holdings [View article]
    FXD also gets our Neutral rating. However, it simply didn't fall within the top 5 ETF's per our ETF Rating Methodology and therefore was not included within this report.

    Thanks for reading!

  • How To Find The Best Sector ETFs: Q2'15 In Review [View article]
    Unfortunately, the best Telecom Services ETF, XTL, only manages to receive our Dangerous rating which is why we highlight it. Despite it being "the best" it still ranks poorly relative to other ETFs. Ideally the best ETFs in each sector would receive Attractive or better ratings, but that was not the case in 2Q15.

  • Best And Worst: Mid Cap Growth ETFs, Mutual Funds And Key Holdings [View article]
    SeekingTruth,
    Thanks for reading. You can see our entire ETF rating methodology in more detail here: http://bit.ly/1L5TjVo

    While IWP does have low costs, its holdings are what bring its overall rating to Neutral. A large portion of the stocks held within IWP receive a Dangerous or Very Dangerous rating (38% actually), causing IWP's overall rating to decline.

  • No Hashtag Needed: Twitter's Issue's Worsen [View article]
    Good point, when will they do that..and after they do, how long does the company survive, what happens to the growth in the users...

    That argument could apply to any company with an overblown cost structure. How often do those overblown cost structures change and allow the company to be profitable?

    The idea that suddenly TWTR will grow into being a profitable company when they can stop spending and just let profits roll in seems hollow to me. That's not what Facebook did.

  • Best And Worst: Large Cap Growth ETFs, Mutual Funds, And Key Holdings [View article]
    While not a blowout quarter by any means, we feel the price decline has been overblown. Lower licensing revenue is slight cause for concern but the continued growth in cloud services is promising, even if it represents only a small portion of Oracle's business at the moment. We remain confident in Oracle's long-term track record however and the price decline only makes the stock more undervalued.

  • Best And Worst: Information Technology ETFs And Mutual Funds [View article]
    We believe past performance is no predictor of future performance. We can't speak for other sources obviously but TDIV receives our Very Attractive rating in large part due to over 60% of its assets allocated to stocks receiving our Attractive or Very Attractive ratings.
