Okay, I Was Wrong About Apple

I've always believed that when you're wrong, you should admit it and then move on. I have to admit that I was wrong about the new Apple watch and here's the reason why.

When Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) originally announced several months ago it was going to introduce a smart watch, I was pretty excited. It was then that I said to myself "there's so many smart watches on the market, what's going to differentiate their smart watch from a slew of other smart watches?"

In fact, when Tim Cook, the head of Apple, introduced the smart watch several months ago, I found little to get excited about. Up until that time I had been wearing another smart watch from a small startup company named Pebble, that was funded by Kickstarter, the popular crowdfunding website.

At first glance my Pebble watch did everything the Apple watch could do and was less expensive so why should I get an Apple?

So why was I wrong? [Read more...]

Q1 Is A Disappointing Quarter For These Two Portfolios

The first quarter of 2015 proved to be a disappointing quarter for both the Internet and the Perfect ETF portfolios, this was in sharp contrast to the World Cup portfolio that produced gains of over 20% for the quarter.

Q1 was largely sloppy and a trendless quarter for both of the Internet and the Perfect ETF Portfolio which explains the disappointing returns.

The Perfect ETF Portfolio

This portfolio is designed for 401 and IRA retirement accounts that can only to go long in stocks. Here are the 5 ETF's the portfolio tracks and trades in this portfolio. They are the ETF’s, GLD, USL, SPY, and FXE. You cannot go short in either a 401k or an IRA retirement account. The Perfect ETF Portfolio is designed to protect your nest egg from either a sharp drop in values or to protect you from rising values and inflation. In Q1, it did not trade two of the ETF's as our Trade Triangle technology was indicating that the ETF's, USO and FXE were in down trends. Q1 presented a difficult trading environment with no solid upward trends appearing for the quarter.

Here's how the quarter shaped up for the Perfect ETF Portfolio. [Read more...]

Another Profitable Quarter For The World Cup Portfolio

Q1 turned out to be another positive quarter for the World Cup portfolio, despite the fact that it lost money in 4 out of the 6 markets it trades.

Now, you might say to yourself, "How good is that system when it loses money in 4 out of 6 markets?" The reality is, the World Cup portfolio is a diversified portfolio that lowers your risk overall while at the same time enhancing your returns.

The opposite of this portfolio is to cherry pick what you think is going to happen. When you do that, you assume far greater risk losing money, in my opinion.

Losing money in 4 of the 6 markets did not affect the quarterly performance which was a positive return of 23.3%.

So you might be asking yourself how could the portfolio make 23.3% when it lost money in 4 the 6 markets it was trading? That gets down to being disciplined and following a market-proven program that has been published for the past 7 years. One of the secrets to the program is no secret at all, it is simply following the signals and letting your profits run. That is one of the hardest things for any trader to do.

Here's how the Q1 shaped up. [Read more...]

The Top Stocks In Each Market Sector

Today I will be examining nine market sectors and looking at the top stocks in each of these sectors. I'll be looking at the consumer, healthcare, energy, financial, technology, industrial, materials and the utility sectors. Each of these sectors has a market leader that's in a strong trend and I'll share those top stocks with you in today's video.

One of the strongest market sectors in the past three months has been healthcare. This sector is up 11.6% and is the leading winner amongst all the sectors. I'll show you the strongest stock in this sector and how it could still go further on the upside. [Read more...]

Is It Time To Short Apple?

Is that a sacrilegious thought? Let me say I'm a huge fan of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and have been since I wrote my book "Right on the Money" on a Mac some 20 plus years ago. But that was when Steve Jobs was changing the world with his WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) interface and that silly little mouse that now is an ubiquitous part of our lives.

Times have changed and Steve Jobs is no longer with us, but I'm sure he would be happy to see that his company has overtaken Microsoft as the most valuable corporation in the world to the tune of some $750 billion. We all know that since Steve has passed on, the baton was handed to Tim Cook. Tim Cook is a very talented executive and certainly a master of the supply chain. But does Tim Cook have enough imagination to drive innovation forward in creating new and exciting products?

Under Tim's leadership, Apple stock has certainly moved higher, no question about that, but what has Apple done lately? We will find out on Monday the 9th, when Apple will unveil a new product. Apple is rumored to be launching its new Apple watch and some upgrades to existing products.

Let me say I would like to be wowed by the Apple watch, but there is a little company called Pebble that has sold more smart watches than all the other smart watch makers combined and that company didn't even exist two years ago. Pebble is led by a very bright and focused individual much like Steve Jobs, who has a vision of what wearables can be and can do. His name is Eric Migicovsky and at 28 years old is the founder and CEO of Pebble. I'm sure we will be hearing a lot more about him and his company in the future. Could this be a David and Goliath technology story as mighty Apple may be felled by a Pebble? [Read more...]

Gold Futures

Gold futures in the April contract are trading far below their 20 and 100 day moving average telling you that the trend is to the downside after settling last Friday at 1,213 while trading at 1,172 down $22 this Friday afternoon as the monthly unemployment report was construed as bullish sending gold to a 9 week low. The U.S dollar is hitting another contract high up 110 points putting pressure on the precious metals as I'm currently recommending a short position in the mini contract which is $33 for every dollar move while placing your stop above the 10 day high which currently stands 1,223 risking around 50 points or $1800 per contract plus slippage and commission.
