Stock Gains in March
Written by Rob Goldman   

After the big stock market reversals on the upside of the past few weeks, we may be at a crossroads again, direction and valuation-wise. I am hopeful that since the S&P 500 Index has risen an average of 1.5% each March for the past 15 years holds true. However, with more attention on the economy, and the fact the U.S. hasn’t grown GDP 3% or higher for the past 10 years (for the first time in nearly a century), it does not bode well. Plus, it just feels like we moved too much too fast.

Still, as we said last week, if you look hard enough, there are bargains to be had. We highlighted a stock in that edition that had a history of crushing EPS and sure enough it did not disappoint as it enjoyed a peak return of 25% by week’s end. Not to be outdone, we have identified another health care stock that has beaten forecasts for 4 straight periods, and carries a dividend yield of over 4%, which could potentially reduce investment risk as well.

Top Three Investing Themes
Written by Rob Goldman   

The most successful way to play the current, difficult market is via certain themes. For example, the 3 latest picks in last month’s 30-30 Report, are up an average of 8% versus the nearly 10% decline during the same period. (Subscribe now to ride the wave of these 3 picks and get our next issue to be released on Thursday.)

Why? Our theme was finding cheap stocks that are seasonal and typically beat estimates. In addition to following this theme we highlight a stock that may be riding the coattails of the Zika virus fears and recommend small stocks in two other sectors.

Worried the bottom could fall out of the market? So are we. In fact, we could drop another 10%. But, see why our confidence is greater that the worst may be over…

February is a Great Month for Stocks
Written by Rob Goldman   

As we enter a new month, I think I speak for all of us when I say good riddance to January!  The good news is that since 2010, the S&P 500 Index has risen each February and with a kick-ass average return. We expect much of the same this go-around as well.

With a busy earnings and economic calendar, this week could be a Groundhog Day for stocks…and I don’t think the market will see its shadow…but there are a lot of negatives out there that will need time to shake out. In fact, there wasn’t a single IPO in the month of January! Go figure, and see some of the hurdles that remain ahead.

Feeling lucky? These oil stocks are worth a watch and maybe even an investment or two…

Check out how our big cap and small cap picks in January performed...you will be surprised…

Where Stocks Are Headed And Why
Written by Rob Goldman   

For those of you that like me had to contend with digging out of nearly 30 inches of snow, I hope all is well. With the snow and the horrible market, could this year start off any worse?  We provide insights, data, and info on a variety of topics in this issue. However, in our most important topics, we discuss:

  • Where stocks are headed and why.
  • Reasons to be cautious now but optimistic in the spring and beyond.
  • A microcap stock that is up for the year and could rise 25% from here.

Our Top Picks for 2016
Written by Rob Goldman   

It is a new year and that means new ideas. In this week’s issue of The Goldman Guide we identify new themes that will drive stocks in the near term and stocks to play that leverage these themes such as this week’s CES show. Plus, for those investors seeking modest returns, we outline the most efficient and best way to engage in the Dogs of the Dow investment strategy which entails investing in the highest yielding stocks in the Dow Jones.  (Hint: There is a low-priced ETF/ETN.)

Plus…

…last year, our small cap pick of the year, Orbotech (NASDAQ – ORBK), rose 39% for the year. For 2016, we not only identify our new small cap pick of the year but also a bottom fishing candidate trading under $2 that could jump 60% in 2016. The chart looks terrible and it dropped by 56% last year but oftentimes this year’s biggest winners are the worst performers of the year before. This stock seems primed to fit that bill.

The January Effect 2016
Written by Rob Goldman   

It looks like The January Effect has just begun for small caps and should continue with earnest next week and beyond. What is it and why has it occurred for 30 of the past 36 years?

While you’re at it, see why the numbers show that small caps offer a greater value and more upside than larger cap stocks after ensuring a poor 2 years.

Finally, we uncover a stock that is expected to grow EPS by 40% next year, had a major contract renewed for 7 years by one of the biggest companies in the world, and yet it trades only 8x next year’s EPS!

A Stock You Can “Bank” On
Written by Rob Goldman   

Ever get the feeling that stocks have no clue which way they wish to move? That’s why we outline the top 4 things that will drive stock direction over the next 12 months in this week’s issue of The Goldman Guide. While we shoot a warning shot across the bow due to Asia growth problems brewing, the 2016 Presidential Election is sure to have a major impact. The good news is that since 1979, the performance of the S&P 500 Index during election years has been strong. (Check out the table on page 2 of The Guide.)

Remember the interest rate hike last week? Well, that means it is likely the Financials sector will have a banner year in 2016. With that in mind, we have identified a stock you can “bank” on. Not only is it enjoying solid growth, but just last week it raised its quarterly dividend by 25%. Plus, if the long-awaited M&A activity occurs in this segment of the banking space, it could have a strong performance for the first half of 2016.
