Why Did This Billionaire Sell All His Stocks? - Mohamed El-Erian has never been just a “typical investor.” His grasp of the cross currents impacting the investment world is impeccable. Few have been as influential or accurate. In 1999, he dumped $2 billion of Argentine debt two years before the country defaulted. At the time, no one believed the country would stop paying its debts. In 2002, he took a bullish position on Brazilian bonds as rivals sold on concerns that ne... http://ow.ly/2Xw3Z1

Cheap Copper Stocks: Copper Rallies… But Can it last? - Copper has taken it on the chin. But after a 48% fall from 2011 highs, we are seeing small pockets of strength. In fact, some analysts are pointing to seasonality in copper inventory, noting that numbers rise until April before tumbling for the remainder of the year. Others are bullish as China – the largest buyer of copper -- cut interest rates for the second time in three months to spur economic growth. Lundin Mi... http://ow.ly/2Vue2G

Investing 101: Fundamental v. Technical Analysis - Which school of thought do you fall under? Fundamental analysis helps us value a stock to determine an overvalued or undervalued opportunity. It dives into the economics of the company itself, such as sales and profits as well as external factors like politics. With fundamental analysis, we’re examining a company’s financial statement to discover if it’s selling below fair value. If we bought a company and wait for ever... http://ow.ly/2V2LOv

Office Retailer Merger: Staples to Buy Office Depot - Staples agreed to buy Office Depot for $6.3 billion. And it could force greater scrutiny.  But as we mentioned February 3, the competitive landscape has changed significantly. In fact, here’s what we noted. Office Depot (ODP) is rocketing to highs not seen since 2010. Staples (SPLS) just popped to highs not seen since 2011. And it’s all thanks to a Wall S3, 2015, eet Journal’s report that Staples is in advanced talks... http://ow.ly/2Ug4sQ

Dogs of the Dow 2015: What investors are watching - By now, I’m sure you’re familiar with the Dogs of the Dow theory. You simply buy the 10 Dog stocks with the highest dividend yields, cash out by year-end and repeat. That’s it. While it ties up money for the year, the returns are worth it. In February 2013, Barron’s noted the Dogs of the Dow strategy no longer worked. By year-end, the Dogs beat the Dow by 8.4%. In December 2013, Barron’s again noted the strategy no lon... http://ow.ly/2SOt37

Orexigen (OREX): What you may not know about the new obesity ruling http://ow.ly/2SlWlW
It's been called an epidemic. The world is paying upwards of $2 trillion every year on obesity related costs. It's become much too big to ignore, as 30% of the world is overweight. And it's only expected to get worse. Over the last 20 years, obesity has skyrocketed across Europe, where between ...

Is the Biotech Bubble About to Burst? - [Biotech stocks] are beginning to dangerously resemble the dotcom mania of the 90s. That’s the warning from the Telegraph last week. The timing of the warning isn’t surprising. The Nasdaq Biotechnology Index fell 10% last week. It is only it’s fourth 10% or greater decline in the past five years. Naturally, with the stocks already down a bit, the expectation for the short-term trend to continue indefinitely into the future. And si... http://ow.ly/2WGY77

Investing 101: Twelve Tips for Investing Success - No one ever became a rocket scientist – or a stock-picking genius (like us) – overnight. We all had to start somewhere, reading, studying, noting what others are doing and have done. To succeed in today’s market, it’s all about education. Without it, you’re driving with blinders. You’re throwing money at stocks, thinking it's a slot machine with immediate certain pay out. But that's not how this works. That’s not how an... http://ow.ly/2VtyId

Biotech Boom: ACADIA Pharmaceuticals at New Highs - I’ve traded the markets for decades. And I have yet to see anything as impressive as this. After picking up beaten-down shares of ACADIA at just $1.05 and $1.24 in 2010, we just watched the stock hit a high of $35 a share. That’s a four-year gain of 3,233% and 2,723%. Every $5,000 invested is now worth well over $165,500 in four years. The bread and butter of The Cheap Investor is to buy stocks of the same caliber. Her... http://ow.ly/2UPSGU

Office Retailer Merger: Staples, Office Depot in advanced talks http://ow.ly/2UdU2E
Office Depot (ODP) is rocketing to highs not seen since 2010. Staples (SPLS) just popped to highs not seen since 2011.

Nautilus (NLS): Fiscally Fit with 900% Returns - For years, Nautilus (NLS) was nothing more than a punching bag, as its stock plummeted 97% off 2002 highs. The company went from posting net income of $25 .1 million in October 2002 to $1 million by September 2012. It became of one the worst stocks to own at the time.

That Biotech Bubble: What the bears never considered - I still find it funny… In March 2014, the bears destroyed the biotech sector on naive fears of a bubble. Federal Reserve president Janet Yellen noted that biotech stocks were overvalued. Had she bothered to look at the price to earnings ratios, she wouldn’t have made such a statement, though. Even the press argued for a bubble. All of a sudden, the sky was falling. Every one sold biotech names for no reason at all, ... http://ow.ly/2S7Tju
