Despite many predictions of an imminent, and possibly severe, market correction, 2021 has been a great year for investors. And that’s particularly true for investors who invested in cyclical stocks.

The stock market is stimulated like a child with a sugar high on Halloween night, and investors are enjoying the ride. It seems like nearly every sector continues to point in one direction. But seasoned investors know that the markets don’t move in the same direction all the time. And even long-term bulls admit that a correction may be coming. One reason for this is that the Federal Reserve (i... Read more.

7 Retail Stocks to Buy After Strong Quarterly Earnings
by MarketBeat Stiaff (8/23/2021)
Earnings season follows a predictable pattern. Bank stocks report first; then big tech stocks weigh in. And now, late in earnings season, we hear from the retail sector. Investors were expecting strong numbers and, for the most part, retailers delivered. However, for some retailers, this may become a “sell the news” event. That’s because on August 16, before the big-name retailers reported... Read more.

The electric vehicle (EV) market remains one of the markets that growth-oriented investors simply have to be in. This sector is at the intersection of multiple secular trends (e.g. autonomous driving, renewable energy).

by MarketBeat Staff (7/30/2021)
In April 2021, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon described fintech companies as one of the “enormous competitive threats” to traditional banking. And with good reason. Fintech (short for financial technology) is not just “digital banking.” It’s a different approach to banking that traditional banks will not be able to replicate by outspending their competitors.

Defensive stocks are companies that deliver consistent revenue and earnings regardless of what is happening in the broader economy. This has the effect of allowing these stocks to outperform the market when the economy is in a downturn. But it also means that these stocks are frequently overlooked during bull markets.

For the better part of the last year, Congress has had “big tech” in its crosshairs. But the reasons why largely depend on what side of the aisle a particular individual was on.

In June 2021 the investment firm, Bespoke Investments made this ominous pronouncement: “Investors simultaneously think the market is overvalued, but likely to keep climbing.” This statement was meant to be a warning to investors.

The last 18 months have created much uncertainty in the market. And it has been a catalyst for the gamification of stock trading.

7 Stocks to Buy That Will Benefit From Inflation

There are two narratives that are getting conflated when it comes to inflation. The first is whether or not inflation is occurring. And the second is whether inflation will get out of control. To the first point, the clear answer is absolutely. There are price increases in everything from commodities to semiconductor chips.

As a conservative investor, I have a grudging admiration for the small army of retail traders that are making their dreams come true.

by MarketBeat Staff (6/4/2021)
Summer is generally a quiet time in the markets. Institutional investors, generally speaking, take some time away. In fact, that’s where the idiom “Sell in May and Go Away” comes from. But quiet doesn’t mean uneventful. The world still moves along even in the lazy months of summer. And at the moment, there are two conflicting views driving the market. One is the fear that everything’s a bub... Read more.

7 Stocks That Could Benefit From a Capital Gains Tax Hike
by MarketBeat Stiaff (5/14/2021)
One thing every investor needs to learn is the effect of capital gains on their investments. Every time an investor sells a stock that has appreciated in value, that capital gain is subject to being taxed. Stocks that are held for less than a year pay a short-term capital gains tax rate. Stocks that are held for over a year pay a long-term capital gains tax rate. In general, a capital gains ta... Read more.

A cyclical stock is one that produces returns that are influenced by macroeconomic or systematic changes in the broader economy. In strong economic times, these stocks show generally strong growth because they are influenced by discretionary consumer spending. Of course, that means the opposite is true as well.

It can be fun to invest in some speculative stocks. But it should go without saying that those stocks shouldn’t make up the bulk of your portfolio.

The electric vehicle (EV) sector was nearly as frothy as the “pandemic stocks” in 2020. It wasn’t that the EV sector was dormant during the Trump administration.

2020 has created a real-life movie script that many production companies could have only dreamed of. But that dream has been a nightmare for many of the world’s leading entertainment stocks. Movie theaters and live entertainment venues remain shut down. The words “pent-up demand” have never resonated more. Consumers are desperate for ways to be entertained. That may make it an odd time to consi... Read more.

7 Clean Energy Stocks With A Bright Future
by MarketBeat Staff (10/29/2020)
The debate over renewable energy (i.e., clean energy) versus nonrenewable energy derived from fossil fuels was always going to come down to dollars and cents. Since 2016, things haven’t been easy for renewable energy companies. As the United States pushed towards energy independence, the Trump administration imposed tariffs on the industrial segments. The sector was subject to less favorable polic... Read more.

7 Marijuana Stocks Worth Speculating On
by MarketBeat Staff (10/26/2020)
To say it’s been a rough two years for the cannabis industry is an understatement. Due to a combination of issues (including some self-inflicted wounds), the cannabis boom predicted in 2018 has not materialized. But that could be about to change. If Joe Biden wins the presidential election, it will likely be part of a “Blue Wave” that will bring Democratic party control of both houses of Congre... Read more.

7 Stocks to Buy For the Current Housing Boom
by MarketBeat Staff (10/12/2020)
It’s been an uneven economic recovery to date. However, one area that is unquestionably booming is the housing market. But the interesting thing is that it took more than low mortgage rates to convince home buyers to take the plunge. What it took was a pandemic. Think I’m kidding? Look at the Housing Market Index (HMI). In September, the HMI posted a preliminary rating of 83. That’s a historica... Read more.

by MarketBeat Staff (9/25/2020)
It’s rough in the markets right now. Underlying the volatility is uncertainty. The VIX Index (INDEXCBOE: VIX) otherwise known as the Fear Index is unofficial, but an eerily accurate predictor of market sentiment. And the VIX is up 30% in the last month. Is this uncertainty due to concerns over additional lockdown measures? Is it about the lack of additional coronavirus stimulus? Is the market ... Read more.

The online investing app Robinhood has been a clear pandemic winner. As more Americans were forced to work from home, many made the decision to begin testing their investing skills by trading stocks. Robinhood appeals to millennial and/or novice investors for several reasons. First, the app makes it fun. You might say it “gamefies” stock trading.

7 Stocks That Will Help You Forget About the Fed
by MarketBeat Staff (9/8/2020)
Normally when the Federal Reserve (i.e. the Fed) makes an announcement, the market reacts predictably. That’s due, in large part, to the nature of what the Fed normally announces. Will interest rates go up, down, or remain unchanged? And for their part, the markets have a pretty good idea what the Fed will do before they do it. But the Fed’s announcement of August 26 was a little different. Th... Read more.

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, there was no reason to think a retailer, any retailer, would be able to come out alive. After all, the economy looked at a month or more of shut-down, and most retailers survive on a thread of profits. Most analysts failed to consider the health of the economy going into the pandemic and what that meant for spending power. The U.S. economy was on the brink of ... Read more.

Many investors confuse volatility in an election year with the market performance during an election year. Historically, investors don’t care all that much who wins the election. Historical evidence shows that the market will rise after a Republican wins and dip after a Democrat wins. But that same evidence suggests that those trends flip in the first year of a presidency.

Just when investors thought that the price of gold couldn’t go any higher, the Federal Reserve added fuel to the fire.

Biotech stocks are some of the most volatile for investors to include in their portfolio. And that volatility can be hard to predict.

Dividends can be an equalizing factor when comparing stocks. For example, you can be looking at one stock that is up 5% and another that is up 7% over a period of time. However, the stock that is up 5% pays a dividend while the one that pays 7% does not. That dividend factors into the stock’s total return. Therefore although the former would appear to offer a better return, the stock that pays a d... Read more.

Over the following days, several biotech and pharmaceutical companies took the headlines. Ho... Read more.

10 Canadian Growth Stocks to Buy Now
by MarketBeat Staff (9/19/2019)
The period between Labor Day and the Holidays gets a bad reputation. Historically, September has been a challenging month for investors. And some investors swear by an October effect for equities. Still, early fall can be an ideal time to dive into the stock market. One of the reasons is because of what comes after October. The Holiday season is historically one of the best periods for stocks. And... Read more.

10 Made in America Stocks to Own
by Chris Markoch (7/9/2019)
With so much attention on tariffs and globalization, it’s not surprising that many U.S. investors are looking to retrench and give their stocks an “America First” profile. Made in America, however, does not mean what it used to mean. In fact, we all know that many “American” products are not 100 percent American made. Nevertheless, there are several stocks of U.S. companies that represent iconic ... Read more.

7 Stocks That Insiders are Buying Now
by Chris Markoch (7/2/2019)
Institutional investors will tell you that one of the more accurate predictors of a stock that is ready to rise is large share purchases by company executives and other insiders. Unlike individuals who engage in insider trading, which is done without public disclosure and/or knowledge, insider buyers are required to file any share purchases (amount and share price) of their company stock with the ...

10 Growth Stocks to Buy on Dips
by Chris Markoch (5/22/2019)
A key consideration in selecting a stock is its ability to perform after it takes a dip. Even the best-performing stock does not climb up forever. It has dips along the way. Whether those dips are mild or severe, the question is not how to avoid them, but how do they respond? Some stocks move in a slow, steady pace with no long corrections. Others can be more volatile – like a roller coaster –... Read more.

With earnings season upon us, investors will benefit from several stocks that will get a bump in the next few weeks. However, once the market digests those results, summer will be here. And that brings to mind the slogan, “Sell in May, and go away”. Summer is a historically slow season for equity investors.

7 High-Risk Stocks with Huge Potential Rewards
by Chris Markoch (4/15/2019)
Understanding your risk tolerance is one of the keys to successful investing. The relationship between risk and reward was clearly on display in 2018. Equity investors were taken on a wild ride that was punctuated by a closing week that saw 1,000 point shifts in a single day. Times like these illustrate the reality of investor sentiment and the fear of missing out (FOMO). What may have started as ... Read more.
7 Technology Stocks That Will Lead the Sector Going Forward
7 Technology Stocks That Will Lead the Sector Going Forward
by Chris Markoch (3/25/2019)
No sector suffered the wrath of investors more than the tech sector. When volatility returned to the market, stocks of technology companies dropped. First, it was the FAANG stocks in the summer and then the broader tech selloff in the fourth quarter. Was this a sign that the growth of the sector in 2017 was simply a bubble, or was it the result of a natural, albeit significant, correction? Unlike ... Read more.
8 Low P/E Stocks with Room to Grow
8 Low P/E Stocks with Room to Grow
by Chris Markoch (3/21/2019)
The price-earnings (P/E) ratio is one of the most significant measurements of a stock. The P/E ratio tells investors how much an investor is willing to pay for every dollar of a company’s earnings. P/E ratios are typically listed along with a company’s stock price. However, if a company’s P/E ratio is not readily available it is easy to determine. The formula for calculating a stock’s P/E ratio is... Read more.

Many investors would love to have gotten in on Amazon and Netflix when they were trading for just a few dollars per share. Unfortunately to get in on those stocks today would mean setting aside a sizable percentage of their portfolio.

9 High-Yield Dividend Stocks that Pay Monthly
9 High-Yield Dividend Stocks that Pay Monthly
by Chris Markoch (3/4/2019)
Income investors have many reasons to love dividend stocks. Most dividend stocks pay out quarterly or annually giving investors the assurance of supplemental income to offset planned expenses. For example, assume a company with a stock price of $50 pays a quarterly dividend with an annual yield of 5%. Assuming the stock price (and therefore the dividend yield) stays constant, an investor who owns ... Read more.

During times of market volatility, blue-chip stocks give investors the benefits of growth and the security of income.

As an investor, it can sometimes be desirable to tune out all the noise that comes out of Washington. Both sides of the aisle can't seem to get out of their way, and neither side can lay a claim to being a friend to investors. The reality is, everyday regulations are put in place, bills are proposed and occasionally laws are passed that benefit some companies and hurt others. This picking of w... Read more.

7 Dividend Stocks to Help Through Market Volatility
by Chris Markoch (2/5/2019)
The roller coaster ride that stocks rode in 2018, particularly in December, has shaken the faith of some investors. After all, it’s hard to watch a year of growth disappear in just a few days or even a few hours. Despite this volatility, 2019 should still be a good year to invest in stocks, but it makes sense to look for ways to combat volatility. One way to do this is by investing in dividend sto...

For many investors, the mantra “no risk, no reward” can apply to their decision of whether they choose to add small-cap stocks to their portfolio. Small-cap stocks are a class of stocks that showcase stocks that have an average market cap of between $500 million and $2 billion dollars. These stocks don't have some of the big names of stocks like Amazon or Apple, but the attraction to these stocks ... Read more.

by Chris Markoch (1/16/2019)
Marijuana is becoming big business. Up until now, full-scale legalization of cannabis has been largely limited to international countries. One of the most notable pieces of news to move the marijuana market in 2018 was Canada lifting their prohibition on marijuana in October. Since then, a mid-term election in the United States brought legalized recreational use for marijuana to additional sta... Read more.

2018 will be a year that investors will remember for its volatility. In the last week of the year alone the market has been on a roller coaster ride that has seen all the major exchanges record triple-digit and even quadruple-digit highs and/or lows. The markets can digest a lot of economic uncertainty such as the direction and pace of interest rate changes, or how companies will perform with reve... Read more.

by Chris Markoch (12/14/2018)
It’s the season of giving. But the market hasn’t been in a very giving mood. October and November have seen some of the most trendy stocks stumble to find solid ground. Marijuana stocks? Down in a puff of smoke. FAANG stocks? They lost their bite. Even oil stocks that seemed to be recovering look like a gigantic head fake.

8 Battered Growth Stocks Worth Another Look
by Chris Markoch (12/13/2018)
When the Trump tax cuts went into effect in early 2018, most analysts thought that it would be a jump start for both earnings and stock prices. There’s no doubt that earnings have received a boost. But robust earnings reports haven’t translated to higher stock prices for a number of stocks. In fact, a number of stocks have dropped over 20% in 2018 – that qualifies as a bear market. This is all des... Read more.

For many investors, the ball can’t drop on 2018 fast enough. It’s been quite the roller coaster ride. Investors cheered the rally created by lower corporate taxes at the beginning of the year, only to watch their gains put in jeopardy by the summer swoon of the tech stocks and the overall market correction in October. Still, December brings to mind visions of a “Santa Claus” rally. Will this year... Read more.

by Chris Markoch (11/26/2018)
The pharmaceutical sector has been on a roller coaster ride over the last several years. As recently as 2016, the industry was getting pinched by the double whammy of pressure to reduce drug costs and a corporate tax structure that was choking off topline growth. In the last year, many of the pharmaceutical companies have seen their stocks go through the roof as a result of the new tax policy. But... Read more.

The mid-term elections are over, but the market volatility will probably continue. The ongoing trade war with China is one issue that has the market seeking direction, there’s the ongoing debate about the future of health care policy, and inflation is peeking its head above the economy and could be an issue for businesses in 2019.

According to many analysts, the market is poised for a significant rally after the recent mid-term elections. But for some stocks, the day of reckoning may have come.

One of the most important things for any investor to understand is their risk tolerance. Warren Buffett famously said the two most important rules of investing are as follows.

However, they truly don’t have the stomach to invest in aggressive stocks that have the ... Read more.

With the election over, conventional thinking says that it’s going to be smooth sailing for stocks. The uncertainty hovering over the market has been removed as fast as the political signs from your neighbors’ front yard.

8 Stocks to Buy as Oil Prices Rise
by Chris Markoch (10/15/2018)
Oil and gas are one of the most volatile sectors for investors. When the price of this commodity falls, many consumers get relief at the gas pump, but oil and gas stocks are punished. The opposite is true when oil and gas prices rise, which has been the case since January of 2016. The price of crude oil has risen over 30% from its low of $42.57. And since January of 2018, crude oil is up almost 23... Read more.

7 Growth Stocks for Consistent Income in Retirement
by Chris Markoch (10/8/2018)
The retirement rules have changed. 30 years ago, being “in” retirement meant getting out of growth stocks, looking for income only – maybe even getting out of stocks altogether. The objective was to generate significant cash volume while minimizing risk. Those are still worthy goals, but the landscape for achieving them has changed. No longer can retirees count on fixed income staples like CDs or ... Read more.

by Chris Markoch (10/1/2018)
The Federal Reserve is increasing their benchmark federal funds rate which has the predictable effect of having industry analysts attempting to predict winners and losers.

Utility stocks have been behaving erratically lately. Ever since the market took off, the conventional wisdom said that utility stocks would be the victim of rising interest rates and higher inflation.

Few debates are more passionate than the one between iPhone and Android users. For iPhone loyalists, no other smartphone can compare, even if a feature-by-feature comparison reveals little difference. It’s about fit, feel, and finish.
