BUZ INVESTORS  Silver down for two weeks The precious metal is trading at $17.00 per ounce at 09:40 GMT this morning, 0.77% higher from the New York close. During the session, silver traded at a high of $17.02 per ounce and a low of $16.87 per ounce. In the New York session yesterday, silver fell 1.78% and closed at $16.87 per ounce, tracking losses in gold prices. Immediate downside, the first support level is seen at $16.80 per ounce, while on the upside, the first resistance level is at $17.21 per ounce.

Precious metals continue to weaken, especially the price of silver which has declined ten consecutive days not counting today, and while consecutive days alone isn’t a reason to become bullish, a drop of roughly 8% in a relatively short period of time does suggest the metal is oversold. Conditions are ripening towards a relief bounce at the least, but we need more than a large drop and a streak to justify looking for a bounce.

The Top Reason to Be Bullish on Walmart Stock

WMT Stock Building on E-Commerce Strengths

Buz Investors Bullish on Walmart Stock

Buz Investors  Bullish on Walmart Stock Wal-Mart Stores Inc (NYSE:WMT) surprised everyone with its fourth-quarter results, which showed strong growth in e-commerce sales in the 2016 holiday season. Walmart stock went up on the good results announcement but investor concerns regarding its ability to compete with Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) have been weighing on it. WMT stock closed in the red Thursday and closed at $70.44.

Bullish on Walmart Stock

The world’s largest retailer has been on an acquisition spree lately and has been doing well in its attempts to challenge the dominance of Amazon. Its acquisition of Jet.com has been fruitful, and Walmart has not stopped shopping for more deals through its online subsidiary. Although the company has a lot of ground to cover and still lags behind Amazon, there are reasons that warrant a bullish outlook on Walmart stock.

The move is significant as an increased number of product offerings in its online store will further boost Walmart’s online sales and benefit WMT stock. Given the vast collection of products on Amazon’s online store, Walmart has to be fast in the catching-up game. However, the acquisition news has not been confirmed by either party.

Reports have come in that suggest that Walmart is planning to rebrand and renovate many of its hypermarkets in Brazil, which has proven to be a difficult market for the retail giant. Brazil is the fifth-largest consumer market but Walmart has not been able to gain much success in the region. However, Walmart is hopeful of a turnaround, as it has planned to spend about $320.0 million over the next three years to upgrade its hypermarkets in the country.

AMZN and AAPL Under Trump

Buz Investors AMZN and AAPL Under Trump Technology stocks were pounded following Donald Trump’s surprise win in the presidential elections. The concerns were real; Trump had been openly targeting the tech heavyweights during his election campaign, ranging from issues as wide as outsourcing and non-payment of taxes to hiring foreign employees.

Donald Trump is in favor of not only lower corporate taxes, but also of providing tax benefits to repatriate overseas cash. This is a big positive for Apple stock, as the company has a big cash pile abroad, which can then be used by the company to buy back shares, pay dividends, and invest in research and development. This is likely to boost AAPL stock, which has been under pressure on declining “iPhone” sales.

The lower tax on bringing back overseas cash helps Amazon stock as well, but more important than that, Jeff Bezos has been trying to mend fences with Donald Trump, which is good for Amazon.com, Inc. going forward.

Generating employment in the country has been the prime focus of Trump’s election promises.

 Remain Bullish on Google Recent Slide Rooted in Basic Fear

Google Stock: The Simple Reason to Remain Bullish on Google

If GOOG stock has lost some value—and from its record high at that—in the past few days, it’s because investors fear an ongoing European Union (EU) antitrust investigation. True, if the investigators get their way and the judge rules in their favor, Google may have to cough up $12.0 billion in fines. It’s not ideal, but Google has the resources to pay the fine without affecting its growth and diversification plans.

Alphabet Inc, Google’s parent company, unveiled higher-than-expected results for the third quarter of 2016. The famous Internet company generated third-quarter net earnings of $5.06 billion.

That’s a massive $7.25 per share, compared to $5.73 per share. Excluding items, earnings per share (EPS) were $9.06, which is $0.43 better than the Reuters consensus. Alphabet Inc’s revenue rose 20% to $22.45 billion, once more exceeding the expectations of $20.0 billion.

Even in the worst hypothesis, by which the company will have to pay a few billion dollars in fines, Google’s parent Alphabet Inc had $83.0 billion in cash on its balance sheet as of September 30. The EU vs. Google dispute is far from over. At the end of this process, Google could have even more cash at its disposal. The company has proven to be a cash machine.

Netflix, Inc.: The Big Reason to Be Bullish on NFLX Stock

Pacific Crest Securities has reiterated its “overweight” rating on Netflix stock. Analyst Andy Hargreaves recommends that investors buy Netflix on the prospect of better subscriber growth next year. Though the imminent price increase may turn sentiments negative for NFLX stock in the third quarter, the prospect remains good going forward, on the back of higher international subscriptions. (Source: “Buy Netflix before earnings on improving international subscriber growth: Pacific Crest,” CNBC, October 13, 2016.)

Earlier, Netflix stock had suffered as the company had announced its strategy of “un-grandfathering,” whereby it will hike prices gradually over this year. But the rumors of a possible acquisition by Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) had pushed up NFLX stock. There have also been reports that the video streaming company faces increased competition fromAmazon.com, Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AMZN) “Amazon Prime Video” service.

However, these concerns seem to be overdone, as Netflix’s content strategy looks quite promising. Netflix is focused on providing original and unique content to its subscribers, and it invests heavily for this. Reports came in on Thursday that the company has paid around $40.0 million for two stand-up comedy specials by Chris Rock. This is a huge gain for Netflix, as the deal with the Emmy-nominated comedian was won after outbidding Amazon, Hulu, LLC, and Home Box Office, Inc. (HBO).

Bullish on CRM Stock Has Big Upside

Salesforce.com Inc.: The No. 1 Reason to Be Bullish on CRM Stock

Bullish on CRM Salesforce.com shares have started to reflect the frenzy of growth-boosting efforts. CRM stock has gained 3.28% in the past five days. But the potential exists for more significant gains, which could see CRM stock get close to—or even exceed— its record $82.00/share level. The company has decided to throw its name in the ring to gain a big piece of the artificial intelligence (AI) sector.

While seeking to block Microsoft’s takeover of LinkedIn, and still being interested in Twitter (rumors that it has refused to comment on, as happens in these cases), Salesforce’s announcement about Krux came just hours before the start of Salesforce’s annual Dreamforce conference in San Francisco.

Krux, to summarize what it does, allows sellers and customers to increase the number of ways they can interact. After the acquisition is complete, Krux will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Salesforce, according to a company statement. Essentially, through Krux’s cloud-based DMP platform, users can develop a much better idea of who their customers are. (Source: Ibid.)

As for Salesforce.com stock’s potential, the Krux acquisition has increased its value to more than the sum of the two parts (i.e. Salesforce and Krux). Now Salesforce can aggregate the combined artificial intelligence tools that it has developed, along with Krux’s, enhancing its cloud service. Krux also has a useful marketing database to enrich the available information on customer profiles. Apart from that, Salesforce.com has just gained many more customers.

Intuitive Surgical, Inc.: Reason to be Bullish on ISRG Stock

  • Buz Traders Bullish on ISRG Stock I am bullish on Intuitive Surgical, Inc.(NASDAQ:ISRG) stock because the ISRG stock chart is so compelling, strategic, and defined that it almost feels like child’s play.
  • I have gotten great enjoyment working with the scaling and patterns with my favorite tool, the price chart. For years now, I have used charts as my go-to tool to analyze a stock, and I have had some great successes doing so
  • Discerning patterns on a chart is very subjective, and any two analysts can garner two different opinions using the  same chart. For this reason, I like to use multiple time frames to help me discern a trend.

Bullish on ISRG Stock Still Room to Run

Intuitive Surgical, Inc.: Reason to be Bullish on ISRG Stock

Bullish on ISRG Stock The pattern on the chart above is an ascending channel. This pattern is defined by two parallel lines that define support and resistance.  The share price will oscillate between these two lines for as long as time permits. This trend ends when the price breaks out of this trading  range. Both trend lines have a positive slope, and this is what sets this channel apart from the others. As time progresses, both resistance and support continue to rise, and these patterns are suitable for investors with longer time horizons.

What this means is that, at some point in time, it can be reasonably assumed that the level of support at $550.00-$600.00 will be tested in the future, just as all previous levels of support have been tested after an impulse wave has terminated.

Other Stories Buz Investors are sharing

This is why it always pays to be on the right side of a trade. There have been years in which serious draw-downs have affected a portfolio’s performance. Poor performing years for ISRG stock were 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2013. It it not always easy to sit through such pullbacks but, as long as the overall trend remains intact for ISRG stock, some solace remains for the bulls.

The chart above is useful in defining my risk. If the support line on the ISRG stock chart is broken to the downside, I would use this as a signal to exit the trade. A weekly close below the trend line would signify that the current impulse wave has ended its run. I would then look for the longer-term support to re-enter the trade
