Why Stocks Will Drop on Friday
Written by Rob Goldman   

I admit that stocks could go a bit higher for a couple of days. Still, many signs all point to a small swoon not later, but soon, as in Friday! (Important: We are not just referring to the Sell in May and Go Away strategy, but other key data points.)  Read why this is bound to occur and what you can do about it.

Thank you all for the great feedback in last week’s survey. We are taking all of your suggestions and the survey results to heart and major changes in the Guide will be evident, beginning next week. In fact we address some of them in this week’s issue when we review the performance of 3 select stocks profiled in 1Q15, including a 30% winner in just six weeks.  See what we believe is in store for these 3 stocks and how to play them.

Change and Marijuana Stocks
Written by Rob Goldman   

As we near the month of May and talking heads tell you to “Sell and Go Away”, we are taking a different approach. The way to succeed in the near term is change. Here is what this concept really means:

  • Today is 4/20 which means marijuana stocks will be front and center. Day trade them, but don’t hold on for too long.
  • By the way, do you have winners? See why and how you need to find a balance between being married to a winning stock and becoming a serial stock dater.
  • We are in the midst of major changes to the front-end of our website and our current offerings and will soon be introducing a series of new offerings. See how you can have a role in our content and delivery changes.
  • We give you a glimpse of a new bi-weekly publication on the cannabis space, slated to be released this month. We are the only firm in this arena that has years of experience in launching and covering a new industry that added billions in market cap to investors. Our one-of-a-kind newsletter will be a must-have for any and all marijuana industry and stock investors and will include feature stories on companies slated to go public so you can have an edge!

A Monster Winner
Written by Rob Goldman   

A lot of market watchers are focused on earnings reports this week but they are focused in the wrong area. Looking for big gains instead? Here is what you need to know:

  • We had a sub-$3 monster winner last week that jumped 141%. See what you should be doing with it now.
  • See how Under Armour just hit the jackpot over the weekend.
  • The financial press is screwing with our minds. Be careful what you read. Still, for some reason, they can’t see that small stocks are going to rock ahead.
  • This sub-$10 stock hit an all-time high, is above all DMAs, trades without a lot of volatility and with filling gaps, offers big upside and based on historical trading, has little downside. A steady, methodical 25% gain may lie ahead.

Follow This “Icon”
Written by Rob Goldman   

Judging by the first quarter performance, small stocks are besting big stocks by a wide margin (4% versus flattish) and that trend is likely to continue well into the second quarter. Even some of the investing world’s biggest names are gobbling up stocks in the small cap and microcap world. In fact, a major “icon” in this arena just acquired over 50% of a $12M microcap. I do not know his intentions, but judging by his track record, I suspect he believes it has the ability to increase in value by rise 2-5x from current levels. With that in mind, perhaps it is not a bad idea to ride his coattails. Click the link below to see which microcap is now in serious play. Plus, see how our picks fared in Q1 and which ones we like for Q2.

Buy This Kind of Candy
Written by Rob Goldman   

Well, things were really volatile in the market last week and we outline why that actually is a good thing if you are an opportunistic trader, since you could generate impressive short term gains. This is especially the case when oil spikes on geopolitical news and the market drops in response.

As Easter approaches, a lot of Americans have candied Easter eggs on the brain. After reviewing the strong performance of our Annual small cap Thanksgiving Picks and Pans we believe that one of the profiled stocks in the late 2014 report is still a special kind of “candy” whose stock is very attractive at current levels.  

(Hint: It is not exactly candy…)

The “It” Factor
Written by Rob Goldman   

Well, our NCAA tournament picks may be terrible but we pegged last week’s rally and the statement on inflation and interest rates by the Federal Reserve could have been lifted directly from last week’s issue. In any event, now is not the time to look into the rearview mirror. After all, it is clear that last week’s rally is not a one-time event, as evidenced by extremely high volume that signals institutions are buying this rally heading into Q2.  What may be more important are the signals that once again, individual investors are the key, on a contrarian basis, to stocks’ direction. We have some data points that illustrate why the next month…and only the next month, could be huge for small stocks, with a drop thereafter.  See why believe the rally could stop in its tracks by late April.

Ever notice how some people see to have that “it” factor? Stocks have it too which is why they tend to make big runs when they engage in shrewd moves that raise their profile and can raise their stock prices as well.

This week we highlight two low-priced NASDAQ stocks that have that “it” factor.  One that could bust through to its 52-week high can be found below:

What the Market Is Telling Us to Buy
Written by Rob Goldman   

This issue is not your run-of-the-mill investment newsletter. After all, how often do you see comments about orgasms or the NCAA Basketball tournament come into play with investing?

Look, after last week's performance it is time investors are shaken out of their paralysis so they can wake up, smell the roses and get out of neutral.  The good news is that most of the market signals point to Smallville and key segments of the small cap arena which right in the sweet spot of you, the subscriber. Of course, we would be remiss if we didn't highlight a stock that could gain nearly 30% in the coming months. It's a bit out of the box but a stock with a high profile founder, great brand recognition and happens to be coming off highs and then lows following a wildly successful late 2014 IPO that flew too far too fast.

Spring Ahead With These Stocks
Written by Rob Goldman   

In our view, stocks are primed for another run, despite the concerns of interest rate hikes, which prompted a big selloff on Friday. It appears that market pros forgot to monitor a very important market "tell" that indicates an interest rate hike has already been factored into stocks.  Click the link below to see what that "tell" is.

With higher interest rates on the horizon, growth stocks are usually the best place to be.  Based on changes in accumulation/distribution/valuations, small caps appear to be in the best shape for the near term and we expect that money flows will bear this out.  See which three sectors could be the biggest beneficiaries of this trend.

As part of our due diligence in researching these sectors, one stock, which is household name to many, shines above the rest. Check out some of these characteristics:

  • It is expected to enjoy its third consecutive record revenue quarter in 1Q15
  • EPS in 2014 was up 50% from 2013
  • EPS in 1Q15 could be almost as much as EPS recorded for the entire 2013 year
  • Wall Street expects a 44% jump in EPS this year, but the stock trades at a 17x multiple
  • Leading peers trade around 30x and 70x this year's EPS, respectively

March of the Millennials
Written by Rob Goldman   

Fifteen years ago the NASDAQ Composite reached the 5000 mark and the S&P 500 rose by nearly 10% for the month before beginning its long spiral downward. Are we about to break through it again only to move lower? And, what will impact stocks' performance this week?

Looking ahead, now that millennials comprise the biggest group of Americans, how will their goals, behavior and agendas affect stocks and the economy? Plus, we profile a stock that a millennial would love…

This 1000% Performer Still Has Upside
Written by Rob Goldman   

All this talk about energy prices ad global economic issues are not just exhausting but have taken attention away from other sectors, such as tech, health care and industrials. Still, these segments offer upside via ETFs and especially small caps. Which ones appear to be the most attractive? Click the link below. (Hint: We profile a previous pick that is up 1000% but still offers upside through midyear.)
