Trump & Alec Baldwin Agree on Something

Dec 7, 2016
J. Webster
Throughout his campaign Trump talked about how the stock market was "in a big, fat, ugly bubble", now it seems Trump's favorite impersonator on Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin, agrees with Trump on this issue. Baldwin was even a little more blunt than Trump in his concerns about the stock market in this tweet: Trump said he sold all of his stock back in June because he was worried about a conflict of interest when he's trying to making

Cramer Says Sell, Harrison Says Buy: Should You Buy or Sell GW Pharmaceuticals?

Comments Off on Cramer Says Sell, Harrison Says Buy: Should You Buy or Sell GW Pharmaceuticals?
Two former partners have a different take on whether you should buy or sell GW Pharmaceuticals. Jim Cramer says don't buy. Todd Harrison says buy it. If you follow Todd Harrison on Twitter you'll know is been a long time trader of $GWPH, both buyer and seller of the stock at different times, but I gather a strong believer in the stock, as he regularly tweets news about the medical marijuana industry and how it relates to GW Pharmaceuticals. Harrison and Cramer of course worked together at the hedge fund Cramer Berkowitz many years ago. They story of their falling out

Goldman Sachs Is Great Again

Comments Off on Goldman Sachs Is Great Again
Before Trump was elected President of the United States, Goldman Sachs traded for about $180 a share. Since Trump won the election, it has shot up to $220 a share. While Goldman's stock is benefiting right now, and surely will continue to benefit, it says all stocks in nearly every sector will benefit in a Trump administration. This is an 8 year high for Goldman's stock. And Trump is set to name ex-Goldman Sachs partner Steven Mnuchin as Treasury Secretary. But for just how long will this benefit last? It seems like a good time to buy the $VIX,

Comments Off on Gun Stocks Drop on Trump Victory
With Trump winning the White House, there's no more fear of Obama or Clinton taking away everyone's guns. Or at least there's no fear of the implementation of tighter guns laws in the Trump Presidency. With this in mind, the stocks of gun companies like Smith & Wesson and Sturm Ruger were both down nearly 15% on the day.

Bankrupt Coal Stock Soars Higher

Comments Off on Bankrupt Coal Stock Soars Higher
I really don't know how this works, can shareholders still sell the stock now? Who owns the shares at this point while it's in bankruptcy? While Peabody Energy, the world's largest coal company, is in bankruptcy, it's stock is soaring, up as much as 50% at one point, since Trump has now won the Presidency. Will Trump step in and make sure Peabody Energy reforms as a new company after bankruptcy and make shareholders whole again? Again, not sure how this works. Overall, will Trump save coal like Obama saved the auto industry.....it's also interesting to see all the solar

Why I Want to Buy Under Armour Shares….

Comments Off on Why I Want to Buy Under Armour Shares….
Unlike Nike or Adidas, who both brands with wide international appeal, Under Armour is just getting started. I believe most Under Armour sales come from the United States (85%), so they have plenty of work to do to expand their brand over seas. Growth is possible. Case in point is Under Armour wearing Steph Curry visiting China. Here's what the Under Armour CEO told Andrew Sorkin during the

The Pizza Restaurant Buy Signal

Comments Off on The Pizza Restaurant Buy Signal
Yes, it's very strange for a clothing company to buy a pizza restaurant, but it turns out that was exactly the time to buy shares of Urban Outfitters. You could say it was more of distraction for critics, and not a large cost to the company, so long term the stock was still a buy. Easy now though to look back and say that.

Larry Kudlow Is Very Concerned About the “So-Called Rich”

Comments Off on Larry Kudlow Is Very Concerned About the “So-Called Rich”
I'm sure with the stock market at record highs and real estate prices soaring, the rich are suffering. Yes, this is Larry Kudlow's concern. Let's say you're making $10K a month and are down 36% is a lot different than making $2 or $3K a month and being down 12%. If you've got a family to feed then that 12% loss is quite dramatic. Whereas for the wealthy, it might just mean they can't buy that boat or go on that vacation. But really, it just seems implausible that the rich aren't doing "so great lately" when they have access

Trump Says Don’t Invest Your 401K in the Stock Market

Comments Off on Trump Says Don’t Invest Your 401K in the Stock Market
While Trump says you shouldn't invest your 401K in the stock market, what is he suggesting people do with the money they have if they sell all their stocks? Is Trump saying people should buy real estate or invest in U.S. Treasuries...? While Trump loves to lay out all these fears people should have, he never lays out a plan for what people should do. All Trump does is try to scare people. Same with this call by Trump telling people not invest in the stock market with their 401K. Contrast this with President Obama, who calmly told investors

The Past Two Years Facebook’s Stock Crushes Twitter’s Stock

Comments Off on The Past Two Years Facebook’s Stock Crushes Twitter’s Stock
So I guess you should have bought Facebook shares instead of Twitter. For the past two years it's clear that Facebook's stock has crushed Twitter's stock, the former is up 69%, while the later is down 64%. It's almost like Research in Motion versus Apple's stock a few years ago.
