EquityAnalytics – Momentum Stocks And Their True Worth

In the trading and investing world, we have all sat in awe of the significant movements of the high growth stocks. In the past year, stocks like Wynn Resorts (WYNN), Salesforce.com (CRM), and Netflix (NFLX) have moved up in valuation with wild fervor. They have continued higher and higher and even higher. Pundits calling tops have been proven wrong again and again. Last year, we believed that Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (another of the so-called MoMo stocks) was at a top at $40 only to be proven wrong. We started to wonder…what is it about these companies that makes them continue to increase in price at such alarming rates, bucking the trends of the market and other companies.

Its all about growth. Momentum stocks move at such significant rates because the underlying company grows at such significant rates. The issue for market makers is trying to find what price these stocks are worth. Trying to find the value of these stocks is difficult because these companies are growing at inconsistently high rates.

Help One Of Our Own PSW Members

"Hello PSW Members –

This is a non-trading topic, but I wanted to post it during trading hours so as many eyes can see it as possible.  Feel free to contact me directly at jennifersurovy@yahoo.com with any questions.

Last fall there was some discussion on the PSW board regarding setting up a YouCaring donation page for a PSW member, Shadowfax. Since then, we have been looking into ways to help get him additional medical services and to pay down his medical debts.  After following those leads, we are ready to move ahead with the YouCaring site. (Link is posted below.)  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated; not only to help aid in his medical bill debt, but to also show what a great community this group is.

Thank you for you time!

US & Arab Partner Nations Begin Airstrikes In Syria - Live Feed

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

As the broad coalition crumbled, it appears Washington decided there was no time to waste:

  • *U.S., PARTNER NATIONS STRIKING ISIS IN SYRIA: PENTAGON
  • *U.S. USING FIGHTERS, BOMBERS, TOMAHAWKS TO ATTACK ISIS

 

NBC News reports the attack includes drones and is expecting to hit up to 20 targets. FOX is reporting Qatar is among the arab nation coalition (along with UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Bahrain), according to Lt. Col. Oliver North, which is rather surprising given their rather well-kno...

The Myth Of What A Stronger Dollar Means For Stocks

The Myth Of What A Stronger Dollar Means For Stocks

Courtesy of , Business Insider 

When the value of the US dollar rises, US goods become more expensive in overseas markets. General, a weaker local currency is good for economies that are driven by exports and maintain big trade surpluses.

The US dollar has been showing strength in recent weeks. And considering the significant foreign exposure of most big US companies, are we to expect stocks to tumble?

Gasoline Price Update: Down Another Nickel

Courtesy of Doug Short.

It's time again for my weekly gasoline update based on data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA). Rounded to the penny, Regular and Premium both fell five cents for the second consecutive week and are now at their lowest averages since early February. Regular is up 16 cents and Premium 16 cents from their interim lows during the second week of last November.

According to GasBuddy.com, only one state (Hawaii) has Regular above $4.00 per gallon, unchanged from last week, and no states are averaging above $3.90, down from one state (Alaska) last week. South Carolina has the cheapest Regular at $3.08.

How far are we from the interim high prices of 2011 and the all-time highs of 2008? Here's a visual answer....

Sector Detector: Bulls leverage hopeful news to launch a tepid breakout attempt

Courtesy of Sabrient Systems and Gradient Analytics

Stocks were able to leverage some optimistic news and dovish words from the Fed to take another stab at an upside breakout attempt last week. Although readers have sometimes accused me of being a permabull, I am really a realist, and the reality is that the slogans like “The trend is your friend” and “Don’t fight the Fed” are truisms. And they have worked. Nevertheless, I am still not convinced that we have seen the ultimate lows for this pullback, especially given the weak technical condition of small caps.

In this weekly update, I give my view of the current market environment, offer a technical analysis of the S&P 500 chart, review our weekly fundamentals-based SectorCast rankings of the ten U.S. business sectors, and then offer up some actionable trading ideas, including a sector ...

Insider Scoop

UPDATE: Wunderlich Lowers Price Target On American Eagle Energy Corp

Courtesy of Benzinga.

In a note issued Monday morning, Wunderlich Securities lowered its price target on American Eagle Energy Corp (NYSE: AMZG) from $15 to $13, while maintaining a Buy rating.

The firm commented, "We factored in a lower production forecast for the second half of 2014 and first half of 2015, a higher cost of borrowing, and higher debt load. As a result, we are lowering our NAV from $15 to $13 per share."

To highlight the lower production, Wunderlich noted the company is expecting production to peak earlier than expected in the fourth quarter and at a lower amount than previous forecast.

This change in production has caused Wunderlich to drastically lower its 2014 and 2015 EPS estimates from $0.30 and $0.44 to $0.06 and $0.14, respectively.

Option Review

IV Implodes On 4-hour YHOO Options As BABA Commences Trading

Investors are dumping shares in Yahoo, sending the stock down 5.0% to $40.08 after shares in Alibaba made their debut on the floor of the NYSE just before midday. Shares in BABA for their part initially traded up to a high of $99.70, a near 47% increase over the IPO price of $68.00. Typically, one would expect put options that are 5% out of the money with roughly 4-hours left to trade to see waning implied volatility. But, at the start of the trading session and ahead of the first trade for BABA, the Sep 19 ’14 40.0 strike put options were trading with 271% volatility or $0.30 per contract amid uncertainty as to how the start of trading for Alibaba would take shape.

Making Sense of Bitcoin

Making Sense of Bitcoin

By James Black at International Man

Despite the various opinions on Bitcoin, there is no question as to its ultimate value: its ability to bypass government restrictions, including economic embargoes and capital controls, to transmit quasi-anonymous money to anyone anywhere.

Opinions differ as to what constitutes "money."

The English word "money" derives from the Latin word "moneta," which means to "mint." Historically, "money" was minted in the form of precious metals, most notably gold and silver. Minted metal was considered "money" because it possessed luster, was scarce, and had perceive...

Biotechs & Bubbles

Reminder: Pharmboy is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Well PSW Subscribers....I am still here, barely.  From my last post a few months ago to now, nothing has changed much, but there are a few bargins out there that as investors, should be put on the watch list (again) and if so desired....buy a small amount.

First, the media is on a tear against biotechs/pharma, ripping companies for their drug prices.  Gilead's HepC drug, Sovaldi, is priced at $84K for the 12-week treatment.  Pundits were screaming bloody murder that it was a total rip off, but when one investigates the other drugs out there, and the consequences of not taking Sovaldi vs. another drug combinations, then things become clearer.  For instance, Olysio (JNJ) is about $66,000 for a 12-week treatment, but is approved for fewer types of patients AND...
