  • Zacks' Bull Of The Day: Apple [View article]
    Apple is the easiest bet to make because it is in your face hence the price movements are not easy to predict. It will move up but what if..... and then the million USD question.......before or after their earnings release? I am betting it will hit 120 before and then after earnings it will fall first before climbing!

    It will fall because analysts estimates are already on the high side and their revised estimates are getting higher, so whatever apple does the market will say wow but it was not good enough!

    Apple a day keeps traders away!

  • Time To Eat Your Apple Pie [View article]
    I seemed to have missed the MB bashing rally! I would think he was contrarian in his investing but not that he is an idiot. One right and all the wrongs get forgotten. Who said invest when others are fearful and get out when all are greedy, WBuffet.
    Apple fell 44% in sept 2012 whereby the Nasdaq fell 11%.

    Personally Apple should hit 120 by Jan 28 or jan 29 then we shall see the future.

  • Update: BlackBerry's Dip Creates Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Did I miss something! The reason blackberry fell was that they are currently abandoning their China plan. Or is this incorrect? That would make sense for it to fall otherwise the stock is a good buy.

  • Update: Facebook Once Again Exceeds Expectations [View article]
    What is understandable is that they beat and their expenses went up so the stock took a hit. Sell the news!
    FB has an average PT of 84.22 USD. The stock has a PE of 46 which in my opinion is high but peer group coverage zillow, twitter, linked in it is the lowest.
    The stock has taken a hit of 9.98% falling to close the gap at 73.12 USD and is currently forming a hammer. It has retraced 2,25% after closing the gap. The general market is also trending up due to higher GDP numbers in the US. I think we will see a rally towards 79.60 USD before the release of the job numbers next week. Buying FB at this price.

  • A Re-Analysis Of Gilead After Q2 Results And The Early Idelalisib Approval [View article]
    What is weird is that the stock did not move up to today in anticipation of great numbers. And today after the results there was no bang. Something is going to happen. Just looking at the chart, sidewards movement and breakout about to happen it looks more to upside.

    Put in a buy order at the 13 day EMA.

    Great article.

  • Is It Time To Short Apple? [View article]
    The week starting 16.09.12 Apple peaked at 700 and then fell.
    The week starting 16.09.12 the NASDAQ started to fall as well.
    Nasdaq fell 11.92% and the current trend channel/bull market rally started 17.11.2012, since then risen 71.59%.
    Apple found its double bottom on 23.06.13 after falling 44.55% and the current trend channel/bull market rally started the same week, since then risen 117.17%.

    Bear market ratio 3.73:1
    Bull market ratio 1.63:1

    Apple has risen 19.13% above its high from 16.09.12.
    The Nasdaq has risen 51.05% above its high from 16.09.12.
    Here the correlation is different as Apple fell 44.55% and the Nasdaq 11.92%.

    The Nasdaq HAS FALLEN 2.85% starting the week of 29.11.14.
    Apple HAS FALLEN 8.53% starting the week of 29.11.14.

    Ratio is 2.99:1 in a volatile market.

    For the sake of argument:
    Apple is a laggard and only because investors feel comfortable they buy Apple.
    Beta 0.92 does not seem to work!

    Apple short does seem to make sense.
    But then who will short a bull market.
    Only the brave!
    Maybe a brave trade short 120, SL 126 (double top 120, 161.8% resistance 125), take profit 95 (double bottom) PLR(PROFIT LOSS RATIO 4.16)

  • GoPro: What Competition? Part 1 [View article]
    WHAT IS GOPRO WITHOUT TECHNOLOGY. Ambaralla is the chip producer that allows GOPRO to be where it is? Insiders will sell as the company currently has only 26.29 m shares floated from a 125.78 m shares outstanding. They are basically creating liquidity in the market at the same time removing the volatility. The current short float is 36% implying that the SHORTS are waiting to lap up all the shares when they fall. PEG ist at 8.26 which is horrible anything under 1 is awesome.
    What I dont get is the sales of AMBA are far lower than GOPRO, how can that be possible if they supply the chips to capture the 4k resolution pictures?
    Technicals - GOPRO has fallen since 7.10.14 and has not broken through this downward resistance until yesterday. Horizontal support at 87.5. need confirmation for a breakout. Upward trend intact and if breakout confirmed i.e stock remains over 85.13 USD today we could see 95.75 which is the next level of resistance.
    So much to lose from so much to buy!

  • Apple beats EPS estimates, but guides light [View news story]
    Earnings beat is meaningless they bought back 5 billion worth of stocks what ii important is revenue beat and operating margin improvements which mean growth and cost of goods sold under control. Think the market will shoot up!

  • Apple At $650. Now What? [View article]
    Why did Apple choose a 7 for 1 split? Because they expect their stock price to hit 700 USD by end of trading day today. Then on Monday morning they would have a stock trading over the psychological 100 USD barrier. The marketing genius could have taken 4 or 5 or 6 and been over 100 USD on June 9th but for that they would have to anticipate the stock closing today at 645 USD. But since they are genius and wanted to touch their all time high they chose 7. I think the stock will fall to 80 USD after the split and then climb to 100 USD. That becomes a huge resistance as it is 100 USD and in reality is the all time Apple high. Apple marketing Genius at its best. You just cannot forget the all time high as it equal to 100. Awesome!

  • Facebook buying WhatsApp [View news story]
    It is cheap. Calculating value with stock is insignificant, the cash outflow is what matters. Facebook actually paid 4 billion in cash and the rest in stock. 19 billion with 2 billion in breakup fees. Forget the stock as that is probably locked up and is accounted for but the cash payment is actually equivalent to 1,5 usd per Facebook shareholder or 2.2% like a dividend. The stock should open approximately 2.2% or more down. The deal at 4 billion is cheap the rest is paper millionaires, what dreams are made off. How do you monetize this who cares, everyone's uses what's app!

  • Apple, China Mobile sign iPhone deal: WSJ [View news story]
    Apple get ready to get out. IT will go up, obviously towards 5885 or 595 but then.

    This is awesome for all the apple fans a 700 million subscriber base getting prepped for Apple everywhere, even more exciting 4g roll out in China, the market makers have been anticipating this move since 3 months starting September and the stock has climbed 30% 575 USD as of this writing.

    Please tell me what more upside can be reached? If One does not already own apple shares then dont buy them now because the big boys are going to take profits. Today,tomorrow the stock might move another 2.79 or 4.56% but after that expect a nice correction back to support at 555/544/512 worst case after which 625 USD would be possible if not 700 USD.

    The stock is already trading outside its boilinger band so one last blow off, a big splurge, volume rises, so exciting and then whoosh a tsunami of big boys selling and a new wave army of hedge funds enter to take positions. Personally, if apple falls to 545 I would buy long term, nice dividend, share buyback, ICAHN pressure etc.

  • The Eurogroup statement on Spain: "The loan will be scaled to provide an effective backstop covering for all possible capital requirements ... with an additional margin of safety up to €100B in total ... the Fund for Orderly Restructuring (FROB), acting as agent of the Spanish government, could receive the funds and channel them to the financial institutions concerned."  [View news story]
    What a joke....the spainish are playing low ball saying they need 40 billion to bail out their banks and the govt acts as sponsors (guarantors/ interest payees) and the EU finance ministers say that they can give 100 billion Euros. Seriously, did we not hear this in 2007/2008- so bear sterns, lehman brothers, AIG, Northern Rock, Bank of Scotland and a bunch of other banks went down. What we talking about housing bubble amongst other things. What is Spain- a huge housing bubble so 40 billion to capitalise their banks is a joke...CDS must be in abundance and whoever is betting on US banks might make money in the short term but in the long run banks are betting where the risk is high and loosing sometimes like the London whale (Did not JPM say 1 billion and now its 5 billion). Give me a break short the Eurousd and the DAX instead and go long the USD and buy gold @ 1480(speculative).....
    The chinese in my view are doing just that: largest holder of USD reserves, will probably devalue their currency and then convert their USD reserves in yuan or use the USD to buy European assets which are cheap with a rising USD. They are also the worlds largest buyers of they are stocking their reserve in case the US stop printing USD which is not happening in the short term, if anything the Central bank will print more USD in July/August.....before elections are over....

  • The Crash In Oil Prices Raises Questions And Opportunities For A Lifetime [View article]
    Exxons breakeven ist at 20 USD so that is one reason why they have not fallen like the rest of the market. Saudis produce at even cheaper cost.The energy sector is changing with this new normal would also imply that capex spending will and needs to be further reduced. Shaling if that is a word is going to loose big and high paying jobs will fall.

    Buying Exxon or Cheveron because they are 20% down is no argument as there are a number of other stocks that could be better buys but not dividend heavy take amgen or biogen or apple which are all part of the industries that are consumer centric.

    US growth out of the 2008 recession was lead by energy companies financed by QE. The point was that US from being an importer of oil is the second largest exporter today. Consolidation will happen, fracking will reduce, solar energy prices will fall, a lot of unproductive badly managed companies that are capex heavily invested and dependent are going to go out of business. Saudi chess against the largest economy in the world. INTEREST RATES WILL PROBABLY NOT GO UP UNTIL THE OIL CRISIS IS RESOLVED.
    Personally I think this is great for European oil importers, Indian and Chinese govts and companies along with Draghi endured QE which should start this month.

    Buying companies that are non energy related but energy dependent- automotive, railways, airlines, shipping. The savings from lower energy prices pass on to the consumers they in turn buy more ciggereetes and chewing gum and condoms- consumer staples and more cars and houses - consumer durables. Tyre companies continental and good year. Leaving only our health in question is buy healthcare as well.
    What about electric arc furnace steel producers? I think copper and aluminum are also prepared in the same manner, those stocks their raw material costs would have fallen tremendously!

    The million usd question which stocks to buy from these sexy sectors?
