    Stock Market

    Since we don't have a Politics forum, is it OK to have a Stock Market thread here as long as we keep it civil?

    DJIA on the rebound since Friday's close.

    It's okay with me. Double bottoms are usually good signs.

            If you can't keep up with the market on a daily basis, and you're a newbie to investing, then you should probably stick to mutual funds. Let someone else make your investment decisions for you.

            Pick a "no load" fund. Less expensive.

                  I day trade. Celldex has downward momentum right now, but things can turn around quickly. Exelixis - also trending down. Micron - MU or MICR?

                  My primary indicators are the MACD and the Derivative Oscillator.

                    All of them. Index funds win in the long term. At least that's what Warren Buffet says.

                      Like some have said here, no load funds are a great idea BUT if you must pick up stocks(that are extremely safe) because you want to see an immediate upside here are some stocks:

                      Citibank (C), here's some due diligence that I shared back at landthieves forum: http://www.landthieves.com/board/sho...=1#post3392486

                      That was back in June when the stock was at $63. It went all the way up to $80.70 and its back down to $69 today. Buy it, it will get back there again soon.

                      Facebook (FB), Kind of a monopoly, currently priced at 17X next year's PE. Despite all the hooplah, advertisers are not backing away from placing ads. Revenue streams strong.

                      Google (GOOGL), Again, kind of a monopoly, currently priced at very attractive levels. It should see at least a 10% upside within the next six weeks due to earnings season.

                        It's best for some to just rely on a sector and find the ETF (exchange traded fund) which mirrors that particular sector. In doing so you greatly reduce the embedded risk involved in picking singular stocks and are buffeted by holding the basket of stocks which comprise the ETF. You can also use these ETF's to short a sector and you don't need to fret about a specific takeover sending you into a complete frenzy.

                          Agreed. Inverse ETFs are great for shorting.

                          Another good thing about ETFs - they have 2X and 3X versions of both upward and inverse indices, which means the gain or loss is magnified by 2 or 3 times.

                                  This is an important week - although today was a promising sign. I will believe it if this holds up Thursday’s PM.

                                  In the meantime long term look at MMM. They have had a great run the past 5 years and have lots of components in future EV manufacturing. Big in Industrial, Display and Graphics, Health Care, etc. Well positioned and growing 10+% YOY in Europe and Asia. Also a dividend aristocrat that increases the dividend around 8-9% Per Year on Average. It has dropped the past few weeks on Trade War fears. Once they subside they will be in the 240’s and go higher.

                                        PAYC (Paycom, an OKC company)
                                        Here's Why Paycom (PAYC) Stock Should Be in Your Portfolio

                                        March 26, 2018
                                        Paycom Software PAYC has been performing quite well since it reported impressive fourth-quarter 2017 results. The stock has gained 26.4% since the earnings release, substantially outperforming the 4.9% rally of the industry it belongs to.

                                        In the last reported quarter, the company’s non-GAAP earnings per share came in at 29 cents per share, which beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 23 cents. Also, reported earnings increased from 18 cents earned in the year-ago quarter.

                                        Paycom Software reported revenues of $114.03 million, which increased 30% from the year-ago quarter. Revenues also surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $113 million.

                                        The company also provided encouraging guidance. For first-quarter fiscal 2018, Paycom Software expects revenues in the range of $150-$152 million. The company anticipates revenues in the range of $541-$543 million for fiscal 2018. Paycom Software, Inc. Revenue (TTM)

                                        Factors Influencing the Stock

                                        Client addition largely contributed to the company’s better-than-expected top-line results. Also, “client retention rate,” which has been hovering around 91% for almost six years in a row, was a positive.

                                        Notably, management is particularly optimistic about the sales team’s performance, which has resulted in the increase of the sales team count to 46. The much positive feedback received by the company’s application that was launched last year on Apple’s AAPL App Store and Google’s GOOGL Play Store is another positive.

                                        Additionally, pertaining to the shift to ASC 606 accounting standard, projected margins have also increased. Previously, the company recognized commission related expenses in the quarter in which a contract was signed. Per the new standards, the commission expense will be recognized ratably over the period till which the contract is valid. This will lower sales and marketing expenses, which will boost margins.

                                        Paycom is also paying attention to increasing shareholder value with share buyback initiatives. The company recently amended an in-progress share repurchase program with an increase in allocated capital and extension of expiration date. These shareholder-friendly steps are also proving worthy.

                                        With an increasing number of companies becoming aware of the benefits of new age human resource technologies, the company is optimistic about the accelerated adoption of its cloud-based human capital management (HCM) software solution delivered as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). This is expected to drive the momentum of this Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stock

                                                  I'm pretty well diversified, but lately I've been buying up Unit trusts. Priced at a discount and still Yielding between 6-24%. Oil is low right now, but as prices come up, so do the stock values. Get in while the price is high and the yield is low. Just a caution. Some Units like BPT are overvalued right now. I really like WHZT (Whiting Oil Unit Trust).

                                                  Also monitoring Marijuana stocks. There was a run on them after Canada legalized Marijuana and it spiked the value, but for now I'm watching them come down a bit closer to value before I start dumping in money.

                                                    They're just following the lead of the U.S. sell off and playing catch up. If our markets rebound today then you will see that reflected in the overnight trading in the foreign markets later tonight (their Thursday)..

                                                      Investors are really over sensitive right now. They're worried about a trade war which I would not be too concern about in the short run. Many institutional investors are worried about Fed Rates rising and pending inflation. Marketwatch.com is a joke right now. I check them daily and you can tell they're cheering on a market crash. It's disgusting and politically motivated.

                                                      Oh here is a stock that has been in my dog house for well over 2 years. Avoid Tesla (TSLA) like the black plague. Their financials are dog shit and have been for over 3 years now. Many Analyst (including myself) have nicknamed Tesla "The Cash Incinerator". They have no indicators of positive growth in their fundamentals and all their gearing is setup for a collapse. Highly recommend if you have it to get out. They've dropped about 21% in value the last week and no it's not a dead cat bounce for them. They'll never make a profit. You can believe "the story" all you want and believe in Elon all you want, but the proof is in the Financials. They're dog shit. Anytime they get strapped for cash Goldman Sachs issues a 'Buy' on them and is the lead underwriter on their keystone for new IPOs. Tesla has done 3 (maybe 4) IPOs in the last 3 years (yes nearly one a year) to pull in more cash, they burn through it real fast and then need to fill that craving for cash again. So along comes Goldman and bumps their rating to a 'Buy' again when every other Analyst in the industry is screaming "It's DOG SHIT!" and suckers buy more... Stop throwing cash down the garbage disposal... Steer clear of Tesla.

                                                                What is your definition of a gloomer? Someone who knows how to make money off a dip?

They are the bulk of working Americans who have 401k investments - which by the way is all they have since fewer companies offer an actual old style retirement plan.

                                                                      So when the market goes down a lot over time, those common investors are hit hard which guess what it does to their thoughts on economy and spending habits. They spend less based on fear which can then drag the economy down and hit stocks even harder over time. Thats always the worry is what it does to most sideline investors, it can be a big negative for the overall economy if it gains traction. The day traders can make money but most others don’t. Its a net negative in the end

                                                                        Also why it is like a sports book. Sophisticated traders making money off the ignorance of passive investors the same way "sharp" gamblers make money of the casual gamblers. It really is somewhat of a scam.

                                                                        On the other hand, with your 401K, you are expecting the fund manager to stay on top of things.

                                                                        My 401K allows me to trade individual stocks, and I can short if I want to.

                                                                                      I have a saying... hedge or be dead. I suggested he buy puts on the stock, when it was above 30, he held to protect is profits. He wishes now that he had used some tools to hedge a very profitable position to a break even at this point. Would have been cheap in the long run. He even bought shares in 2009 for $8-9

                                                                                      Longs do not make money in bear markets. Doesn't happen unless you buy a 2 or 3x bear fund. Equity is lost. As mentioned, it does allow for dollar cost averaging. That's no guarantee for making money.

                                                                                      Comment
