Netflix, Inc.: Slowing Subscriber Growth No Reason to Bail on Netflix Stock

Netflix Stock Still Has Upside Despite Issues
There is no question that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has reached a critical moment. Netflix stock is under pressure, having lost more than 18% year-to-date. The big question shareholders are asking is whether this is a temporary weakness or the reflection of a chronic problem affecting the company in an increasingly competitive market.

Netflix, once the unchallenged platform for on-demand video, which seemed to have no end to growth, gained significantly fewer users in the second quarter. Netflix stock has plummeted as a.

 

Facebook Inc: Facebook Stock Has More Room to Run

More Upside for FB Stock?
Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) stock seems to be the most appealing candidate for investors looking for a growth name among the market of large-cap tech firms.

The company’s metrics from its second quarter of 2016 and recent years outshine many of its closest competitors and other flagship brands in the tech sector. Its most recent earnings report showed FB stock exceeding analysts’ expectations yet again. Mark Zuckerberg and his fellow executives also provided some forward-looking statements explaining how Facebook will grow in the near.

 

Alibaba Group Holding Ltd: More Upside for BABA Stock?

Huge Potential for BABA Stock
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA) stock debuted nearly two years ago as the largest technology initial public offering (IPO) in the history after raising a whopping $25.0 billion. Alibaba stock sold for $68.00 a share and surged 34% at the time.

In November last year, BABA stock traded as high as $119.00 per share, up 75% from its IPO price. However, the stock suffered a beating due to the challenges confronting the company including allegations that it is tolerating the sales of counterfeit products on its web sites,.

 

Twitter Inc: These 3 Charts Show Where TWTR Stock Could Go Next

TWTR Stock: Potential Bottom?
Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) stock has been the equivalent of dead money since June 3, 2015. If you were unfortunate enough to own shares at that time, your current loss stands at -55%. That is without a doubt a hard to pill to swallow.

When I ask people why they still hold a losing position, their answers are usually the same—it stems from peoples’ inabilities to trigger losses. They would rather wait until shares rebound or hit breakeven in hopes of getting out. That’s not exactly the best exit strategy.

There is a lesson to be.

 

Celgene Corporation: This CELG Stock Setup Has 240%+ Upside

CELG Stock: Back on the Bullish Track
If you are new to charting or just curious, Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) stock chart is a great example of charting at its best.

When I scan through hundreds of charts, I like to focus on the ones that I find clear and decisive. Some charts are just a complete mess, embedded with noise. I would rather not waste time trying to understand a message if it is not jumping out at me. It is much easier to just move on. This is why I was really enthused when I came across the chart of CELG stock.

Beautiful charts look.

 

PYPL Stock: Could the Big Banks Take Down Paypal Holdings Inc?

Is PYPL Stock Protected?
The digital payments industry is undergoing a massive transformation right now and it could have an outsize impact on Paypal Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:PYPL). My guess is that PYPL stock will live or die depending on what happens in the next 18 months…

The company is under siege from various competitors, but it can survive by building a moat. “Moat” is a term that business writers borrowed from military strategy.

In military strategy, if you’re defending a fort or castle from an invading army, you’d dig a trench around the perimeter..

Apple Inc.: Should You Invest in Apple Stock?

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) stock recently released quarterly results, which helped the company improve its uninspiring performance this year.

Apple stock, one of the reliable overachievers of Wall Street, has lost more than 2.2% year-to-date. However, the trend may have changed after investors and analysts seem to agree that the worst is over for AAPL stock in 2016.

Does that mean AAPL stock isn’t in the clear just yet?

While CEO Tim Cook didn’t exactly deliver stellar news, shares avoided tanking because Apple somehow mustered better-than-expected results,.

 

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.: Could Billion-Dollar Takeover Save the Falling Walmart Stock?

This Could Be Huge for WMT Stock
Retail companies like Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) aren’t exactly the hottest picks in the stock market today. While U.S. equities just soared past their all-time highs, Walmart stock returned a measly 0.9% in the past 12 months. Now, there might be something that could boost the appeal of WMT stock—a potential acquisition of Jet.com Inc.

On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Walmart is in talks to buy e-commerce startup Jet.com. While it’s uncertain how much Walmart would be willing to pay for the.

Facebook Inc: Soaring Ad Revenue Could Send FB Stock Soaring

Stock Market Buzz 8.1.16 Earnings Provide Tailwind for FB Stock
Although Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) is one of the most successful tech investments ever, there’s still plenty of upside left in FB stock. Anyone who doubts that should take a look at the company’s stellar earnings report from last week.

Facebook delivered a jaw-dropping amount of growth. Second-quarter revenue increased a whopping 59% over the same three months last year, moving from $3.83 billion to $6.24 billion. (Source: “.

 

Apple Inc.: Why Apple Stock Bulls Are Wrong

Market Has Misread Apple Stock
Investors went stir crazy after seeing the fiscal third-quarter results reported by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) last week. While the stock market may have been giddy, I was not jumping up and down, buying up shares of AAPL. There were some positives in the results, sure; however, overall, there were more negatives. I’m still waiting for the actual game changer to happen.

For those who saw their AAPL stock jump from the $96.00 level on July 26 to $104.55 last Friday, now may be the time to consider lightening your load, as Apple isn’t.

 

Amazon.com, Inc.: 3 Reasons to Be Bullish on AMZN Stock

Why AMZN Stock Was Muted After Earnings
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) continued its recent trend of sweeping analysts off their feet. The company crushed earnings expectations in its last earnings review, reported on Thursday. AMZN stock is now primed for huge gains in Q3 and Q4.

If you’re looking at the market and wondering why AMZN stock didn’t surge immediately, don’t worry; it was weighed down by weak gross domestic numbers. The U.S. economy didn’t grow as quickly as expected last quarter and that acted as a.

Alphabet Inc: Why Google Stock Is Still the Best Bet in the Internet Industry

This Is a Big Deal for GOOG Stock
Mega-cap companies don’t usually offer startup-like growth. That’s why Alphabet Inc(NASDAQ:GOOG) stock is so special. After a solid earnings report, Google stock gained more than four percent. Google’s Class A shares have surged past the $800.00 mark.

Expectations were already high before Google stock earnings, yet the company managed to beat both top- and bottom-line estimates. The best part is that despite being the incumbent in the Internet industry, Google’s growth rate was no less.

 

BlackBerry Ltd: This Chart Shows More Downside for BBRY Stock

BBRY stock: Any Hope for the Bulls?
I find it hard to describe the performance of BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) stock in just one word.

BBRY stock peaked in June 2013, tagging a high price of $148.13 per share. However, currently, BlackBerry shares are trading at $7.66. This represents a loss of 94.8% for BBRY stock. A complete and utter disaster, share price has been completely decimated.

At one point, BlackBerry actually dominated the market. The company’s handset was a symbol of social status. Everyone who was anyone had.

 

If This Happens, IBM Stock Could Surge

IBM stock: Back on Track?
International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) stock is off to a great start for 2016, up 19.6% year-to-date. This is a nice change compared to the dismal returns experienced over the last three years. Each respective year produced losses. Could this be the beginning of a new trend?

I have reason to believe that IBM stock may have put in a significant bottom in 2016, meaning it is ready to resume its bull market and challenge its all-time high in share price. My reasoning has nothing to do with Berkshire’s purchase of IBM.

 

Apple Car: Everything You Need to Know About the Apple Inc. Car

Why We Think Apple Is Building an Apple Car
The “Apple Car” rumor mill is running at full speed again. According to a report inThe Wall Street Journal, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) reassigned one of its most important senior executives to a secret program called “Project Titan.” It’s widely believed to be a codename for the Apple Car project.

The company reassigned Bob Mansfield, a close confidant of Steve Jobs, to work on the secret Apple Car project. Other than Jonny Ive, Mansfield was the.

 

Microsoft Corporation: This Chart Shows Where MSFT Stock Is Going Next

MSFT Stock: Trend Remains Bullish
Once in a blue moon, I stumble upon a stock chart that has me in utter awe. The awe comes from the precise perfection of the painted chart. It is as if the technical analysis gods pulled it straight out of a textbook. I recently found one of these investments. What is it? Would you believe me if I told you it’s Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) stock?

Microsoft has always been a name synonymous with the personal computer (PC). The first thing that often comes to mind when we here.

 

GoPro Inc: GoPro Camera Sales Could Provide Big Boost for GPRO Stock

GPRO Stock Gaining Popularity Again?
In the past 12-month, GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) stock has been trading deep in the doldrums. Now, things might start to change.

Known as the maker of action cameras, GoPro stock had enjoyed solid gains since it went public two years ago. However, once people realized that not everybody needed a GoPro camera, things went south. In the past year, GPRO stock plunged a whopping 80%.

There is a silver lining in every cloud, though. Once the stock’s valuation gets low enough, any sign.

 

 

Confidential.Ellie Mae Inc: Housing Recovery Could Be Big Boost for ELLI Stock

Does ELLI Stock Deserve Your Attention?
Ellie Mae Inc (NYSE:ELLI) stock may not be a household name for many. However, the Pleasanton, California-based company’s position as a leading provider of on-demand software solutions and services for the residential mortgage industry is helping Ellie Mae stock to become one of the most intriguing under-the-radar companies.

It isn’t likely that Ellie Mae stock will stay under-the-radar for too much longer, though, especially when its second-quarter results.

Uber Technologies is giving up

its costly battle for China’s riders, swapping its local operations there for a minority stake in the country’s homegrown champion. The new entity combines Didi Chuxing’s (Private:DIDI) most recent valuation of $28B and Uber China’s $7B for a $35B market capitalization. Didi will also make a $1B investment in UBER as part of the complex deal, which will end the bruising competition between the two firms.

 

Economy

The Fed should be cautious

in considering an interest rate increase due to lingering risks to the U.S. economy, New York Fed President William Dudley declared, describing Friday’s GDP growth figure of 1.2% as “sluggish.” Although he said it was “premature” to rule out monetary policy tightening in 2016, he added that negative shocks were more likely than positive ones due to the unknown fallout from Brexit, a strong dollar and because it was safer to delay a move with rates so low.

China’s manufacturing sector

painted a mixed picture in July, with the official activity gauge unexpectedly slipping into contraction territory while another survey pointed to an expansion for the first time in 17 months. The government’s manufacturing PMI came in at 49.9, but Caixin’s figure, which tracks smaller-scale private firms compared to the official gauge, rose above the key 50 level for the first time since February 2015.

Other PMIs from around the globe

: Manufacturing growth across the eurozone eased in July, with Markit’s PMI for the bloc dropping to 52.0 from 52.8 in June, while Greek factory activity fell back in contraction. Sterling pulled back from the highs hit late last week on weak manufacturing figures, signaling some economic backlash from June’s Brexit vote. Japanese factory activity shrank in July at a slower pace than the previous month but new export orders contracted the fastest in more than 3.5 years.

Failure to ratify the TPP

would hand China “the keys to the castle” on globalization and do nothing to solve the real problems underlying American anxiety over jobs, according to U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman. The tariff-slashing deal has turned into a hot-button topic in the run-up to the Nov. 8 presidential election, threatening to dampen support from lawmakers needed to pass an agreement critics condemn as a job-killer.

Britain’s Financial Conduct Authority

and the China Securities Regulatory Commission are discussing an agreement that will pave the way for landmark financial services projects between the countries, easing fears that the U.K. could be a less attractive partner in a post-Brexit world. The scheme includes cooperation on a regulatory framework for distributing fund products in each other’s jurisdiction and a proposed London-Shanghai link for trading shares.

“The oil market is oversupplied

now but there are expectations that there will be balance between demand and supply in the market,” Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said after a Reuters survey showed OPEC’s oil output this month was likely to reach its highest point in recent history. Today also marks the first day at the desk for OPEC’s new general secretary. Nigeria’s Mohammed Barkindo will be the first new top official at the cartel in almost a decade. Crude futures -1.4% to $41.04/bbl.

Brazil’s interim President Michel Temer

has expressed confidence in Rio de Janeiro’s ability to pull off a successful Olympics (beginning this Friday), despite fresh data showing surging crime rates in the capital. Around 85,000 security personnel are expected to be deployed during the Games, the largest contingent for a mega event, to guard the half a million visitors expected to descend upon Rio.
