  • Apple Wants Beats For Its Streaming Music Subscribers

    Once upon a time in the wild west of downloaded music, Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iTunes was the undisputed king. ITunes revenue was Apple's second fastest growing sector in the second quarter of 2013. However, in recent months, the trend has been changing in the digital music industry. Users are increasingly "out-sourcing" their choice of to individualized streaming music service providers like Spotify... Read more at Vanopulence.

  • Prosensa's Failure Will Not Justify Buying Sarepta

    Recently, shares of Prosensa (NASDAQ:RNA) dropped 70% after announcing the negative outcome from its phase III study of an experimental drug, Drisapersen. Meanwhile Sarepta Therapeutics (NASDAQ:SRPT) has seen a significant increase in their market capitalization.

    Comparing the price of Prosensa to its competing company, Sarepta Therapeutics, we find that there seems to be a strong negative correlation between the failure of Prosensa to rise in Sarepta's stock price.

    Find out why it is a bad idea to buy Sarepta based on Prosensa's failure.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

  • Sales Growth Forecast Is Fueling Tesla To Drive North

    The genius Nikola Tesla died in poverty but the car named after him is certainly on the way to make its investors well-off. As I look at the ticker, Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) is pushing a record price of $180 a share, up 9.1% for the day (September 19, 2013) so far. Personally, I was expecting this kind of home run since the FOMC meeting minutes were made public yesterday. Without the much anticipated septaper, where else the darling stocks will head but North?

    We all the know history of Tesla and we all appreciate the great vision and great models it has delivered to the market so far. I understand many already consider this to be a Tulip Mania type trend but I will like to discuss why anyone in sound mind will get in now, at this price level. The trendline suggests that the price action has all the text-book characteristics of a bubble. However, I would like to present what is under the hood, the fundamentals.
