The direction and stability of the market is still very dependent upon "fiscal cliff" talks within the government.  Though the market has shown a bit of stability recently, staying in cash to avoid unnecessary risk is a wise, conservative play.  Please invest with extreme caution. Buy XOM: Exxon Mobil Corporation Profit target @ $92.00 or use a 7% trailing stop (see Strategy page). Protect from loss @ $86.00 or use trailing stop (mentioned above). Exxon Mobil (XOM) has pulled back to its…

The direction and stability of the market is still very dependent upon "fiscal cliff" talks within the government.  Though the market has shown a bit of stability recently, staying in cash to avoid unnecessary risk is a wise, conservative play.  Please invest with extreme caution. Buy GOOG, preferably between $669.00 and $670.00. Initial profit target @ 4% above purchase price. Protect from loss @ up-trending support floor (light blue line on graph). Since dipping down to near $550.00 in June,…

Client Question: What's your recommendation for AAPL and NOK this week?  AAPL looks hot but I'm afraid the price may be too high to enter. Response: Such a great question.  Like most investors, I follow Apple regularly.  And I’ve been watching it lately, contemplating adding to my current position.  First of all, my mind is exactly where yours is, Apple looks like it may be overbought and is selling too high.  The company just won a big suit against Samsung,…

Naturally, investors are always looking for the next Apple Inc. (AAPL) or the next Google Inc. (GOOG). As all companies begin with modest capitalization, the question is, what differentiates the Apples and Googles from the, well, whoever they were? A broad, easy answer, of course, is growth. Successful companies grow; unsuccessful companies don't. If we look at a company's analyst-projected EPS (earnings per share) growth we are given a somewhat reliable look into its growth potential and future success. Currently,…

Yes, Facebook changed the world. But should you buy the IPO hype? I say no, and here's why. Let's start with the numbers. The company, with an expected valuation of $75 billion to $100 billion, is profitable but not as profitable as it should be to put up numbers like that. With a 2011 revenue of $3.8 billion and an operating profit around $1.5 billion, the company has an operating margin of 39.74% (Kapitall); nothing to write home about. Top…

Purchasing a promising company's stock right out of the public offering gates can yield great returns for long term investors. Example: Google Inc. (GOOG). The stock opened at $100.00 in 2004 and is currently trading above $500.00. But I'm not an investor who holds stocks for years. Instead, I currently find success in riding the short term trends, holding stocks for only a few weeks to a few months. So, do Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) have a place in my…
