Valuing Apple’s Stock: 3 Considerations For Active Investors

Buying an asset when everyone hates it has been a strong recipe for successful investing over the years. But, contrarian investing is much more than meets the eye; it requires extreme patience, strong discipline, and a plan. So what might a contrarian investor be interested in?  Hint: Value (on long side) and over-value (on short side). Big-time investors like Warren Buffett or Carl Icahn fit this profile.  And speaking of the

Gold Investors: 5 Things To Watch For This Summer

Just as Gold looked destined to retest the lows, the yellow metal found its shine and rallied into the Fed statement on June 18, 2014. In the trading business, we call that a “head fake.”  And it came at the perfect time – right as Gold investors were about to give up. 80 points later, Gold has emerged from its slumber and may be ready to rally. But in a

Is The Silver ETF (SLV) On The Verge Of A Breakout?

In just three weeks, Silver has gone from the brink of collapse to being on the verge of a price breakout. But this sort of price action isn’t uncommon from assets in a longer-term corrective phase; in short, bulls get worn down by the short relief rallies that return to the grinding stair-step lower. That said, the price action in the Silver ETF (SLV) looks promising, provided follow through confirmation arrives shortly.

Gold Miners (GDX) Technical Outlook

Gold mining stocks are officially on the trader radar. Including today’s surge higher, the Gold Miners (GDX) are 25 percent off the 52 week lows recorded in December. And, although the group is getting overbought short-term, it may be setting up nicely for a “buy on consolidation” swing trade. With this in mind, let’s look at the technical setup. On the daily chart, the Gold Miners put in a higher low (21.93)  in late

3 Reasons Emotions Are Running High Into FOMC Statement

The tension on the tape is building. Like it or not, many active investors are bracing for the reaction to the FOMC statement today (set to release at 2pm ET). Bulls and bears are in an epic stare down, and for this reason it’s probably best for traders to sit this one out. Especially if you’re losing sleep over your positions. The build up is pretty typical, but today’s release

Here Comes The Fed: All Eyes On Gold 1275

With the Federal Reserve set to release their collective policy statement tomorrow afternoon, the market has found a way to build drama around the “event.” Wait, that never happens!  But amidst all the back and forth between equity bulls and bears, many investors are missing out on the price action in Gold. And notably, the recovery to Gold 1275. In January, I highlighted Gold 1275 as a key to a coming

Small Cap Stocks In Focus: Russell 2000 Resistance Looms Large

The first sign of relative weakness in the equities market showed up in the form of risk-off for high beta stocks. These included small cap stocks, and select momentum names and sectors, such as Biotech. And this created some glaring divergences, while disturbing market breadth. But the broader market shook off this bout of internal weakness and continued its move higher, recently on the heals of small cap stocks. In this vein, I’m

S&P 500 Stretched, But Time And Price Wearing Bears Down

It was 12 sessions ago that the S&P 500 broke out above 1900. And considering that the index closed today at 1943 (or just 2.3% above the breakout), many may be inclined to refer to the past few weeks as a cruel game of “wear the bears out.”  Look no further than the multitude of hollow candlesticks post-breakout to feel the bears pain on a time continuum… like little paper cuts with each

Market Sentiment Watch: Are Headlines Getting Frothy?

Market sentiment has been downright nasty during this bull market. And sentiment-focused analysts like Ryan Detrick have correctly highlighted this as a major catalyst for higher equity prices along the way. No arguments there; the slow trickle of cash into the market has reduced volatility and kept pull backs in check. And this theme may continue for some time, especially if funds (and investors) begin to deploy capital in an

When A Trade Turns Into An Investment…

It almost always ends poorly. Every day active investors scan the market for setups they like. Whether it’s stocks, bonds, ETFs, futures, commodities, or currencies there are a multitude of sectors and asset classes to scan and rank. And as we maintain, build, and invest in our running list of candidates, we constantly think about risk-reward and time frames.  And it is within this context that we make decisions. The Trade If you
