  • Since the beginning of the year, one asset class has shone when compared to the stock market. I am talking about gold bullion. The yellow shiny metal’s prices are up more than 10%. The stock market, on the other hand, hasn’t performed as well. For example, year-to-date, the S&P 500

  • “I am going to buy BlackBerry Limited [NASDAQ/BBRY] and leverage heavily. Maybe buy options rather than the stock. I believe the company’s stock prices are going to go much higher than where they stand now. They look like a takeover target soon. I’m going all in.” These were the first

    Every time I drive my SUV, especially when I have to fill up the tank with premium gas, I quiver and think about downsizing to a smaller gas-efficient vehicle or some sort of hybrid. I remember back more than a decade ago when Canadian upstart Ballard Power Systems Inc. (NASDAQ/BLDP)

    At the beginning of the year, I thought the technology sector would deliver some of the top potential for gains this year. Nearly two months into the year, the technology sector has, so far, made the biggest strides in what has been a relatively cautious start to the year. So

    Good businesses have a tendency to remain that way, and when they experience a material price retrenchment on the equity market, it’s often worth a look. Chart Industries, Inc. (GTLS) is a company we’ve looked at before in these pages. This enterprise operates as part of the energy infrastructure build-out

    The demand and supply situation of gold bullion is clearly going in favor of the bulls, and I continue to believe the precious metal is presenting investors with a buying opportunity of a lifetime. I believe that if I buy now, I will profit later. Let me explain… Demand for

  • This past weekend, a friend of mine made a statement that there must be a large amount of economic growth coming shortly because of the booming stock market, driven by investor sentiment. As I told him, the two are not necessarily tied together. Over the past few months, we have

  • Just like any other commodity, natural gas prices are affected by supply and demand metrics. If demand increases and supply remains the same (or declines), you have a perfect recipe for higher prices. Since the beginning of the year, this commodity’s prices are up more than 40%! Before you start

    The 3D-printing sector may be currently in an impasse but trust me folks, when I say the sector will be significant going forward and a buying opportunity as the price of the 3D-printing machines fall. My stock analysis is that 3D printers will become a common sight on the desk

  • Conditions in the U.S. economy are deteriorating fairly quickly. The economic data suggests it’s slowing down. We already saw the U.S. economy decelerate in 2013 compared to 2012; now, investors are asking if this is going to be the case in 2014 as well. All sorts of businesses in the

    have rallied back to the $100.00-per-barrel level on some near-term supply and inventory concerns. While the upside move is rewarding the buyers of oil stocks, I don’t think oil prices are set for an extended rally. The chart of the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil shows oil prices bouncing

    Tesla Motors, Inc. (TSLA) has been an excellent trade. The position has recovered strongly and is a very good example for traders who speculate on changes in investor sentiment. Trading a stock like Tesla is about price momentum as much as anything. And every business, no matter how successful or

    In 2013, the U.S. economy, as measured by gross domestic product (GDP), rose at an average rate of 1.9% compared to 2.8% in 2012. And as it stands, GDP may slow further in 2014. What makes me think this? In January, U.S. industrial production declined by 0.3% from the previous

  • I have been in this business a long time, and I believe that the best tactic is to combine as many positive factors as possible in order to have the highest probability of success. There are essentially three main methods to look at; this includes fundamental analysis, technical analysis, and

  • We see there’s a significant amount of economic news mounting against the argument that key stock indices will go higher this year. We see major companies on the key stock indices reporting corporate earnings that are dismal to say the very least. We see indicators of prosperity suggesting the opposite

  • The Breton Woods conference of 1944 is best remembered for establishing the IMF, World Bank and WTO. But the conference also saw John Maynard Keynes make a fascinating proposal for a global currency, a proposal the United Kingdom adopted as its official negotiating policy. Keynes lost the argument to the

  • Long-term investing and growing a portfolio over time isn’t an easy task. It requires a lot of planning and a significant amount of research. While doing this, many investors tend to forget one very important aspect: the costs associated with investing in their portfolio—the commissions and fees. If investors control

  • A friend of mine asked me the other day about the best way to build a long-term investment strategy. This is a great question, but it’s also one of the most difficult ones to answer. Obviously, different people have various goals and objectives, especially when it comes to risks. For

    In case some of you forgot, today is Valentine’s Day. For those investors who may still be searching for that elusive gift for their loved one—and maybe a little something for themselves—I’m here to help with my stock analysis of my top three Valentine’s-themed stocks. This is the one day

  • The last time we looked at Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ALXN), the position was trading around $121.00 a share. Now, it’s $175.00 a share, and once again, the company reported outstanding financial results from its “Soliris” wonder-drug. This stock has been a powerhouse wealth creator, and virtually every time we take
