Five Stocks I’m Looking at During this Bear Market

The last two weeks have been downright absurd. People are (and probably rightfully) panicking and reacting in extreme ways to this pandemic. It has everyone worried because we don’t know what the next few weeks will hold. Nobody likes uncertainty. The market has priced in a lot of this fear/economic slowdown, and rather quickly. In fact, this is the fastest we’ve gotten to a bear market in recorded history: That’s one scary chart. It also does not tell us where stock prices w

CCM Episode #74: Interview With Arif Karim

Volatility is Your Friend if You Dollar-Cost-Average

Markets are in a bit of a panic right now. Supply chains and the travel industry are being thrown into disarray with this COVID-19 epidemic, and likely will continue to do so for the next few months (and possibly longer). A recession, or at least a big slowdown, might be in the cards. As of this writing, SPY (the largest ETF that tracks the S&P 500) is down over 11% in the last month while the VIX (volatility index) has skyrocketed. 11% is not an extraordinary drawdown. It ma

Three Downtrodden Stocks Poised for a Turnaround

Classic value is not what I typically invest in. My bread and butter, or really, what I think I have an edge in, are growth names that I can hold for a long time period. These include stocks like Square, Spotify, and Yext, companies with rapid sales growth but low-profit margins. I like them because I think they can be highly profitable in the future, not for the cash they bring in now. However, I have found a few names (possibly driven by the fact my portfolio sits at an ave

CCM Episode 73: Interview with Wall Street Bets

Who is Bob Chapek, the New Disney CEO?

We all (and by we, I mean investors) got hit pretty badly this week. Markets were down 11.5%, the worst weekly drop since 2008. This consumed most of, if not the entirety of, the financial media news cycle. And rightly so. But that meant some big news fell through the cracks. And there wasn’t any bigger news than Bog Iger stepping down from his longtime CEO role at Disney. It was honestly shocking news, seeing as he had signed a contract through 2021 and he had said nothing a

Fundamental Analysis of Transdigm

Wall Street Bets: A Crowdsourced Stratton Oakmont

“Stratton Oakmont, Inc. was a Long Island, New York, “over-the-counter” brokerage house founded in 1989 by Jordan Belfort and Danny Porush. It defrauded many shareholders leading to the arrest and incarceration of several executives, and the closing of the firm in 1996.” Deep down we crave speculation. The thrill of betting everything on red, the adrenaline of knowing you’ll either walk home a rich man or a penniless fool, that feeling will never be replaced with a pragmatic

Fundamental Analysis of Virgin Galactic

On the latest Fundamental Analysis Show we discussed Virgin Galactic, the high-flying space tourism company.

CCM Episode 71: Facebook, Skyworks Solutions, and Global Payments with Matt Cochrane

Other Segments this Week: Tax incentives for investors Wall Street Bets and the new euphoria We actually made money on short-term options and are now addicted Listen

Semler Scientific: A Deep Dive

Not many people have heard the name Semler Scientific. It trades on the OTC markets, barely qualifies as a small-cap stock, and rarely has a daily trading volume greater than 1,000 shares. I actually saw it only trade 14 times in a single day. Compare that to Tesla, which has 40 million+ shares traded on the regular. Talk about price discovery am I right. I believe Semler Scientific can be a serial compounder over the next decade. That’s a bold statement, especially because t

How I Research a Stock

If you want to be a successful stock picker, you need a consistent research process. This will not only help you find the right companies for your portfolio but make it easier and more efficient to sift through the thousands of publicly trading businesses on the market. And just as there is no one-size-fits-all investing strategy, there are no cookie-cutter approaches to investment research. What matters is whether the process works for you to be able to find quality companie
