Comments Off on Time to Buy Alibaba’s Stock..?
Is this the old contrarian indicator? Barrons has Alibaba's Jack Ma on the cover and says Alibaba's stock could drop another 50%....but Barrons said Facebook's stocks was done when it was trading for $18, too. Also, remember that Alibaba could be “the biggest data analytics firm the world has ever seen”. Perhaps, if you believe in Alibaba for the long term, you might hope that Alibaba's stock gets hit and you could buy more shares. However, maybe there's some truth to the Barrons article about Alibaba.... There's no doubt though that if Alibaba wins China, and fights off

Comments Off on Monday’s 1000 Point Drop
What are they calling last Monday's nearly 1000 point drop? Is it a flash crash or a correction? Well, it certainly didn't seem to be much of a correction as stocks rallied within about an hour. Yes, if you were going to buy the "dip" you had about one hour to get your cash together and start buying stocks. The question is would you or did you sell once stocks started to skyrocket back up? It's more of an argument overall for long term holding of stocks, I'd say. If you were buying this dip with the idea of

Comments Off on Justin Leverenz of Oppenheimer Likes Alibaba
Justin Leverenz, director of emerging markets equities at Oppenheimer Funds, calls Alibaba "the biggest data analytics firm the world has ever seen". And Leverenz is someone who knows how the Chinese economy works, he's lived in China for over ten years and speaks the language. Not only that, but Leverenz just recently spent time with Jack Ma and the team at Alibaba. He likes Alibaba not just as an Internet marketplace or a financial transaction play, but for what it will be in the future. Alibaba's stocks has been chopped in half from its high after its IPO, perhaps now's the

Comments Off on Former Celebrity Apprentice Host Weighs in on Stock Market Crash
One fundamental rule to follow when investing in the stock market is to remain and calm and not to panic and tune out the noise. And you certainly don't want to sell all your stocks when there's a correction of some kind, you probably want to do the opposite and actually buy stocks when there's a major crash. So be careful out there and try not to listen to any former celebrity apprentice hosts who are tweeting about the stock market crash.

Comments Off on Quentin Tarantino Watches a Lot of CNBC
So what stocks does Quentin Tarantino own? What CNBC shows does Quintin Tarantino watch? Does he watch Mad Money or Fast Money? Has Tarantino ever been a guest on CNBC? Can you imagine him and Cramer after two red bulls talking stocks on CNBC early in the morning....? Would be a lot to take in and an incredible amount of words being spoken in a short amount of time but I'd watch.
Do you not stream movies? No, I don’t. My TV isn’t connected to my computer. It’s just a generational thing, but that doesn’t mean I’m not depressed by it. The idea

Comments Off on SolarCity Is a Subprime Finance Company….
Jim Chanos just called SolarCity a subprime finance company on CNBC's Fast Money Halftime Report. Yes, SolarCity is Chanos' new short. And calling something "subprime" are fighting words. After the financial collapse five or six years ago, in large part due to the subprime financing of houses, there's not really much you could say that's worse than calling a company, "subprime". Chanos said he believes in the solar energy space long term but not a company like SolarCity which finances the implementation of solar in residential homes. I'm sure Elon Musk, which owns SolarCity, will have something to say in

Comments Off on Jon Carnes Saved $3K From Working in a Fried Chicken Joint
This little amazing fact in bold I want to know more about - Jon Carnes saved $3K from working in a fried chicken joint to start his investment career...? And then for Carnes to take that relatively small amount of money and become one of the best short sellers of Chinese stocks....Amazing.
Carnes, who started his investment career in 1992 with $3,000 of savings from a part-time job at a South Carolina fried chicken joint, has been researching Chinese shares for at least a decade. Around 2009, he started focusing on short-sale opportunities in companies he suspected were inflating their financial
