The Goldman Guide

Originally published as a newsletter from 2010-2016, we re-launched The Goldman Guide in January 2023 as a free weekly audio/video podcast with a companion newsletter version. These varied formats allow our subscribers to utilize their preferred method of learning about our investment, economic, sector, equity, and crypto insights.  This non-sponsored content seeks to provide subscribers with detailed data, perspectives and opinions in an action-oriented, straight to the point approach. The podcast and newsletter are produced by Goldman Small Cap Research and are led by Founder Rob Goldman. Occassionally, there may be contributions from the GSCR contributor team, as indicated.  No companies mentioned in this podcast or newsletter are current or prior sponsored research clients of the Company or its parent.  

Play the Stock Market for $1
Written by Rob Goldman   

It may sound implausible but there is a way to play the volatility and downside nature of the stock market for just $1. It is a very risky play and is just for day-traders. But, since this ETN (like an ETF) is at a year low, even a modest move down or a bump in volatility could move this low-priced play higher quickly. Please do your own due diligence and move quickly when selling! Read more in the latest issue of The Goldman Guide.

Anyone else notice that stocks and the market are trading like opposite day? It’s the craziest thing but we outline it and why we have a totally new investment landscape and factors moving equities today. Read more in the latest issue of The Goldman Guide.

Also in this week’s issue of The Goldman Guide we tell you why the biotech craze is about to run its course and how some of the latest data may portend we go lower before we go higher in the market. Read morein the latest issue of The Goldman Guide.

Also, the financial press seems to be all over recent moves by some of the biggest names in the investment business, driving some small stocks to meteoric heights. Is this good and should you follow the herd? Plus, how has the performance been on these plays?

The Smart Money is Moving Here
Written by Rob Goldman   

Judging by a series of comments and surveys, the argument could be made that there are more investors sitting on the fence (Neutral) than those who identify as bullish or bearish. This is dangerous and means volatility and muted returns are ahead for the interim. That is one of the reasons why some retail investors are actively seeking the “stock of the day”, in the hopes of striking gold with another Voltari situation, which was a huge hit for us, by the way. Therefore, it is no surprise that last week two biotechs were up 100% in one day last week, including a stock that now has George Soros as an investor.

With that in mind, we answer the following questions in this week’s issue of The Goldman Guide:

  • Do we think this Soros target is the next Voltari?
  • Is the market getting “toppy” as Janet Yellin noted last week?
  • Where is the smart money going?
  • Will this 48% gainer over the past 2 months move higher?
  • Is this low multiple growth stock a steal if it drops due to breaking news today?
  • Can this low-priced 30-30 stock that jumped 13% last week, leap higher?

As we celebrate the 5th anniversary of The Goldman Guide, the new look Guide is bigger and better than ever.  In fact, it is more than twice the length of our previous issues but is built to be the only thing you need to read to quickly get caught up on the market and a few steps ahead of other investors.

In addition to traditional market insight, we now feature: links to a handful of the most important (and unique) stories on the Web, a series of key stats to provide you with an edge, and the latest news on stocks we have featured in the Guide thus far this year.

Importantly, see how and why our small cap picks are up an average of 27% for the first four months of the year versus a paltry 1.2% for the Russell 2000, and which ones still have room to move much higher. We also make changes to some of our previous picks.

Finally, after a series of very recent issues that have resulted in the suspension in trading and the voluntary delisting from NASDAQ, we are suspending coverage of ForceField Energy (NASDAQ – FNRG) pending clarity in prospects and resolution to the issues outlined in its filings. 

As always, we feature a new stock that could see a big rise this year. Granted, it looks terrible from the technical perspective but for those investors looking for value in the sub-$3 health care space, this stock has a low valuation to go with its high EPS growth rate.

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.
