Should You Trade Penny Stocks Weekly?

Should You Trade Penny Stocks Weekly?

The other day I presented an idea that many people in the stock market are trading penny stocks weekly… or even daily.  And my thinking is simple… that’s too much, and I can prove it. First, why is trading so frequently a problem? It’s really the difference between being a penny stock trader and a […]

Are Interest Rates Going Higher Sooner Than Expected?

Are Interest Rates Going Higher Sooner Than Expected?

After closely watching geopolitical events play out, the focus of many investors has shifted to the Fed and interest rates.  Between the most recent Fed Meeting notes being released and the conference in Jackson Hole, there’s been ample opportunity for Fed watchers to (attempt to) glean information about the future of interest rates. However, Yellen’s […]

Should You Trade Commodity Options?

Should You Trade Commodity Options?

The vast majority of my articles focus on trading equities options and equity index options.  Of course, those are the most popular options, so it makes sense.  However, let’s not forget about commodity options. First off, when trading commodity options, I recommend only trading options on commodity ETFs.  Yes, options do trade on commodity futures.  […]

Financials Lead The S&P 500 Past Important Milestone

Financials Lead The S&P 500 Past Important Milestone

The S&P 500 closed above 2,000 for the first time ever on Tuesday.  It’s an impressive milestone for the large cap index.  But most people hardly even noticed… A recent Gallup poll showed that just 7% of Americans knew that the S&P 500 was up 30% last year.  Given those stats, I guess the lack […]

Japanese ETFs Are An Interesting Buy

Japanese ETFs Are An Interesting Buy

What Was The Fed Thinking?

What Was The Fed Thinking?

Ever since interest rates hit zero, we’ve come to expect consistent, mostly boring talk out of the Fed.  The central bank has pledged to keep rates low for the foreseeable future.  And, quantitative easing is slowly winding down. There’s not a whole Yellen and the Fed could say or do at this point that hasn’t […]

Is The Latest Hot IPO Worth Investing In?

Is The Latest Hot IPO Worth Investing In?

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a buzz-worthy IPO to discuss.  Lately, IPO hype has been pretty sparse.  After a big year for initial public offerings in 2013, the somewhat less bullish environment this year seems to have discouraged big name IPOs from moving forward. However, IPOs may be back en vogue after GoPro’s (GPRO) […]

Beware! Those high yield dividend stocks you keep seeing could be nothing but trouble.  Expensive trouble. There’s a reason why the S&P 500 pays an average dividend of 1.91%.  But you keep running into stocks that pay dividends of twice this much.  Or even three and four times this much. Today, I’m going to tell […]
