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

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.

Comments Off on Who Knew Oracle Was Going to Buy NetSuite….
Oracle is going to buy NetSuite for $109 per share, but it seems like someone knew this yesterday. But was this in the cards years ago...after all, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is the largest share holder of NetSuite, and the company also happens to be run by an ex-Oracle executive... Amazingly, NetSuite traded down as low as $8 a share in 2009 during the financial crisis. Today, the stock is trading at $108 a share. Anyone who bought the stock and held on to if for the past six years deserves a lot of credit.

Make Banks Money Again

Comments Off on Make Banks Money Again
When Trump's president, dear God I hope not, banks will make money again. Well, banks are actually already making a lot of money. But I do wonder what percentage of that money is from overdraft fees.... When interest rates go up though, banks will make even more money. Although there will be less loans given out if rates go up a lot, with rates where they are now that won't happen for quite a long time. So it does seem like banks are a good long term buy since rates have to go up at some point, right?

Comments Off on Janet Yellen Smiles Through Question About Trump Causing World Economic Collapse
I wonder what Donald Trump thinks about this video clip, where the crowd seems to laugh and chuckle at his presidency causing a world economic collapse. It's as though Janet Yellen and the rest of the crowd just have to smile and laugh and pray that Trump never wins the presidency. It's just something they can't even comprehend. Yellen says she's focused on her job as she smiles. And by the way, who is the guy asking the question? Janet Yellen: "I'm sorry, I've got nothing for you on that...we're very focused on doing our jobs...we'll just see what happens."

Comments Off on Jack Dorsey Never Looks at Twitter’s Stock Chart
Come on, do you believe this? Jack Dorsey says he doesn't ever look at Twitter's stock price. Really, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I mean you certainly don't want a CEO who obsesses over their company's stock price, so much so that they don't have a long term outlook, but if your company's stock is tanking you might want to look at its chart from time to time:
It had been a strange week for Dorsey. Shares of Twitter’s stock had fallen another 16 percent in a single day after the most recent

Comments Off on How in the World Can a Trader Support Donald Trump…
As a trader or investor in the stock market, how in the world can you actually support Donald Trump. What if Trump decides he doesn't like the stock or company you own. Trump goes after anyone or any company that does something that he doesn't like or hurts him. If you don't bow down to Trump's wishes then he'll attack you. So if you're a trader or invest in the stock market, how can you support someone who is prone to wild reactions based on if his feelings get hurt?
