Hello Europe, Life Goes On

"In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on."

How true that quote is! It comes from prize winning Pulitzer poet, Robert Frost.

I think the same can be said about markets and countries: they go on.

This morning, there is hope that something can be hammered out with Greece before the week is out. I am not sure how many weeks we have been looking for a resolution to this European drama, I've just lost count. It is time for the Greeks to make a deal and for life to go on.

Let's put that all aside today and look at six stocks that I talked about last week. All six of these stocks ended up in the plus column for the week. [Read more...]

Q2 Produced Double-Digit Returns For The Internet Portfolio

The Internet Portfolio managed to produce a gain of 11.8% for Q2. The big winners in this portfolio when Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) and Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN).

What is all the more remarkable is the fact that the NASDAQ was practically flat during Q2 with a modest gain of a little over 1%.

You can learn more about MarketClub's Internet portfolio here.

Here are the five stocks that are tracked in the Internet portfolio:

Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB)
Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX)
Yelp Inc. (NYSE:YELP)
Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO)
Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)

Out of those five stocks, there were gains in three and losses in two for a 60% winning edge.

How this portfolio works, we track and publish a model $50,000 account that you divide into five buckets of $10,000 each. Depending on the value of the share that determines how many shares you buy rounded down. For example, Facebook trading at $82.50 would allow you to buy 120 shares. It's entirely different when you look at a stock like Netflix trading at $441.69 you would've just purchased 22 shares of that stock. The idea is to keep the portfolio balanced percentage wise. For example, a 1% gain in Netflix would be the same as a 1% gain in Yahoo based on a $10,000 bucket. The idea is not to bet big on any one stock or to try to pick the big winner for the year. The reality is no one knows and this approach is conservative and has produced outstanding results in our research.

Here are the actual number of shares traded and the recent gains and losses. [Read more...]

Poll: Will Default Push Greece Out Of The Euro?

The Greek government is running out of money and time. They need to agree to a deal with their Eurozone partners this weekend to secure the final part of its bailout loan and avoid defaulting on its debts. But without a deal, default could push the country towards leaving the Euro - a prospect that has become known as "Grexit".

What do you think?

Will default push Greece out of the euro?

Poll: Are You Bullish or Bearish?

After a nice rebound the last two days, the market has once again come under pressure from Greece. Stocks opened lower today as negative news out of Greece is weighing on sentiment. The standoff between Greece and its creditors took a turn for the worse on Thursday, with both sides citing "major differences" over how to save the country from bankruptcy. This news has put pressure on the European and U.S. equities markets.

That begs the question....

How do you feel about the markets?

Poll: Are You Following The Healthy Eating Trend?

Many Americans are now turning away from fast and processed food and deciding to lead a healthier lifestyle. That lifestyle includes exercise and eating healthy food.

However, many of the popular health food stocks like Whole Foods Market Inc. (NASDAQ:WFM), Sprouts Farmers Market Inc. (NASDAQ:SFM) and Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG) have seen their stock values decline rather dramatically since they all peaked in late February of this year.

I have a question for you today...

Have you changed your eating habits?

Overall there appears to be a trend for people to eat less, consume non-processed food, and turn to a healthier lifestyle. Even Walmart and Target are getting into the act devoting whole sections of the store to health foods.

Why have health food stocks deteriorated for the last three months? It all has to do with perception as many investors got overly excited with the market getting ahead of itself. [Read more...]

As long as the stock moves up or down, you should be making money with this portfolio.
