Stocks marched broadly higher on Wall Street in afternoon trading Friday after the government reported that employers added far more jobs than expected in November. The gains erased the S&P 500's losses from earlier in the week, placing the benchmark index on track for a weekly gain. The Labor Department said employers added 266,000 positions, well above estimates of 184,000.

Morgan Stanley Has a New Bull Case for Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) $500 per Share
The recent past for Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has been a bit shaky. The unveiling of its new Cybertruck has been met with widescale derision yet plenty of reports of pre-orders. In fact, just a few weeks prior, short-sellers who decided they'd tackle Tesla lost their collective shirts to the tune of $1.4 billion. Now, Adam Jonas, a Morgan Stanley analyst,…

The Real Reason Chipotle Stock is Soaring Today
Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG) stock is up nearly 0.75% in mid-day trading on December 6. This is just another leg up for a stock that is up over 85% in the year to date. Chipotle’s banner year has successfully moved the stock to levels it has not seen since 2015. However in investing, as in life, it’s not about what happens to a company, it’s how a company responds to it that matters.

Use This Simple Indicator to Visually Identify Price Trends
One of the most overused axioms in trading is “The trend is your friend.” This rearview mirror piece of conventional wisdom would suggest that you should be trading in the direction of the (price) trend, not against it. This advice assumes the trader actually knows the direction of the trend. There are two types of price trends, uptrends (prices continue to rise) and downtrends (prices continue to fall).

It's a pretty good time to be Target (NYSE: TGT) right now. With a very good chance at being declared “king of the internet” based on our earlier projections—we considered it “late to the show” but representing part of a competitive landscape that's rapidly increasing in tempo and threat to Amazon—and turning out some excellent earnings, things are looking up for the retailer.

Is Dollar General’s Strength Forecasting Economic Weakness?
Over the holiday weekend, I noticed that a new Dollar General (NYSE:DG) store was getting ready to open in my area. I had heard that DG was one of the few retailers that were opening stores, so that wasn’t a surprise. However, it was surprising that this store wasn’t being built to replace an existing store located about a mile away. It was being built in addition to it. And this store is in a solidly middle-class area.
