Four Potentially Profitable and Quick Trades
Written by Rob Goldman

The Most Tradable Stock Ever
Written by Rob Goldman   

Last week was a hoot, wasn’t it? The Street couldn’t decide if it was time to act like Chicken Little or sing Don’t Worry, Be Happy. The beauty of it is that it doesn’t matter that not being bullish is no longer politically correct and a punishable offense both in your investment portfolio but through derision by bulls. We have found what we believe is the best way to trade volatility intraday or over a 2-3 day period. It is the most tradable stock (well ETF, actually) ever, and not only was it up 21% on Volatile Thursday but even we made money trading it---and you can too.

Secrets to Successful Investing
Written by Rob Goldman   

In this week’s issue, we tackle three major issues that will have a big impact on your investments. For starters, I have probably pissed off all of my peers by revealing the secrets to investing success. On a related note, I rarely admonish the hard working analysts in this business but this time I had no alternative. Late last week, the guys at Bank of America (Merrill Lynch) predicted that stocks will scream higher this summer before a big correction hits in the fall. We have stats that prove the exact opposite! 

Finally, most investors do not realize that June is one of the most important months of the year for a number of reasons. One of them is the fact June is the month that Russell reconstitutes its indices. This means that some stocks are swapped out as news ones are brought in. It can create big buying (and selling) in some small stocks.
