    International Speedway Stock ChartMarket Week Ahead

    Scanning the stock charts this early Monday morning looking for a low-risk high-reward trade or investment, I’m reviewing the week ahead. With oil and the dollar at keys levels currently, the stock market this week could be very volatile. Summers now upon us and we could possibly get a correction in the market with the S&P and the Dow moving averages at possible crossover points later in the week.

    My Stock Pick This Week Needs More Gas

    My stock pick this week is involved in auto racing. Nascar to be specific. Long story short, auto racing is not going away yet, but it should suffer for awhile from this recession we’re in, and this entertainment is not a must have expense. I’m selling short this company for the time being. With earnings and revenues very possibly slowing down for awhile with this company, I’m betting the stock price is going to slow down and get dragged down too. The company is well run, but I don’t think as many people are going to shell out hundreds of dollars to watch a car race in person when they might not even have enough money to put in their own gas tank first.
