Dollar General Is Going To Have To Pay A Lot More For Family Dollar

This morning I woke up to see that Dollar General Corporation (NYSE:DG) has raised its bid again to $80 a share or $9.1 billion to buy Family Dollar Stores Inc. (NYSE:FDO). I don't think that Dollar General's bid is enough therefore I don't think Dollar General is going to be able to pick this stock up for just $80 a share.

In today's video, I'll show you how MarketClub's Trade Triangles nailed both of these stocks and how they got this trade right. I will also show you why I think Dollar General is going to have to up its bid – big time if it wants to acquire Family Dollar Stores. Last week, Dollar General said it remained committed to making this acquisition, however Dollar General's earnings and same-store sales fell short of market expectations. What does this mean? Is Dollar General reaching out for Family Dollar Stores now while its stock is still relatively high? I think so.

As I said earlier, I believe Dollar General Corporation (NYSE:DG) is going to have to pay a lot more if it wants to acquire Family Dollar Stores Inc. (NYSE:FDO). I will share with you the exact number I think that Dollar General is going to have to pay for Family Dollar stores if it wants to acquire that business.

I have a feeling this is going to be an interesting week so stay tuned.

The Beat Goes On – August Recap

Today marks the last day of trading for the month of August and I have to say, it has been quite a month. With all the news about ISIS, the Ukraine and Hamas and Israel, you would think the world was coming to an end. Well, don't tell that to the stock market! It made all-time highs and put in a very solid month of returns in August.

Traditionally August has always been a rather slow month, as many traders and investors take off on vacation to spend time with family members and loved ones. This August was no different as trading volume slowed, but the market continued its upward trend.

The big winner as far as the indexes are concerned is the NASDAQ (NASDAQ:COMP), which is presently trading approximately 4.61% higher for the month. Closely behind the NASDAQ is the S&P 500 (CME:SP500), which is up 3.62% as of midday Eastern Standard Time. The DOW (INDEX:DJI), not to be out done, reversed its earlier weakness and rallied into positive territory for the month and is presently up 3.12%. [Read more...]

Time To Make An Acquisition

Today I'm going to be analyzing the stock of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR). The origins of the company began almost 3 decades ago over dinner at Joe and Rose in 1976. From the outset, the concept of KKR was management buyouts and building partnerships and relationships.

Henry Kravis and George Roberts, the original founders of the company, set the tone for KKR's values and the way it has conducted business for decades. Not only had they already worked together for years, they were also first cousins and lifelong friends. Which, in my opinion, is not a bad thing and helped the partnership grow and prosper.

The private partnership went public on July 15, 2010, and is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol, KKR.

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. is a private equity investment firm specializing in acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, management buyouts, special situations, growth equity, mature, mezzanine, distressed, and middle market investments.

In today's video, I'll be analyzing the stock of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) and sharing with you a little trick that you may want to employ in your own trading.

I like ISIS - and here's why

Now, before you get all up in arms and say, "how can you even think about supporting a middle eastern terrorist group?!", let me explain. First of all, I'm not talking about ISIS the Islamic state now known as IS, I will be discussing and analyzing the stock of Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISIS). It is just unfortunate that they happen to have the same name.

Yesterday, there was a major trend change signal in ISIS Pharmaceuticals. This signal indicated that the trend had reversed to the upside and a long position was now warranted. Technically, the stock looks very good and capable of moving another 10% to 15% higher from current levels.

To learn more about how you can take advantage of the situation in the stock of of Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISIS), check out today's video.

Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISIS) is engaged in the discovery and development of antisense drugs using novel drug discovery platform. The company's flagship product includes the KYNAMRO injection, which is an apo-B synthesis inhibitor for patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia; and for the reduction of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. It also has a pipeline of 31 drugs in development for the treatment of various diseases, including cardiovascular and metabolic diseases; severe and rare diseases, including neurological disorders; and cancer. Isis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISIS) was founded in 1989 and is headquartered in Carlsbad, California.

Is Twitch a game changer for Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)?

If you're not familiar with Twitch, it is a video game playing business that attracts 55 million unique viewers a month. That's enough viewers to put it among the 15 most heavily trafficked websites in the world.

So what exactly is Twitch and why did Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) shell out close to $1 billion to buy this company? Here is my take, young men's eyeballs. Young men are some of the hardest demographics to track for advertisers. The combination of Amazon and Twitch could be a killer combination for Amazon to sell products to this particular demographic.

So how does Twitch make money? The company shares its advertising revenue with people who broadcast over its service. While the audiences for some broadcasters are so small they make little money, on the other side of the coin, some broadcasters are said to earn over six figures a year. [Read more...]

Trade Triangles Catch The Move In Burger King

Hello traders everywhere! The Trade Triangles catch the move in a stock that's in the news today, Burger King Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE:BKW).

Three Reasons You Should Buy Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)

Today I'll be looking at Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). At this point in time, the name Amazon is synonymous with online shopping, but Amazon does quite a bit more than just that. Amazon also runs a huge cloud infrastructure hosting service that has revenues in the billions of dollars. Amazon is constantly rolling out new services that are all designed to help sell more products. They are even coming out with a payment service for merchants that can be used on a smart phone.

Jeff Bezos, the genius behind Amazon, recently purchased the Washington Post. I'm not sure that this paper is going to make Jeff any money, but it is going to win him a lot of friends in Washington DC. Why would Bezos care about a newspaper? I don't think he cares about the newspaper itself, but rather the power the Washington Post has with politicians. What he cares about most is not having regulators come in and create problems by making more regulations than are necessary.

All that aside, here are three good reasons why I believe Amazon is going to have a very good fourth quarter.

1. Technically the stock looks good after pulling back from recent highs it made in July around the $360 area. The stock found support right around $280 and an important Fibonacci retracement level at $310.

2. Yesterday, Monday the 18th, the stock of Amazon flashed a weekly Trade Triangle. This action reaffirmed that the longer-term trend has resumed and should now be moving higher.

3. The stock is now in very strong hands with all the Trade Triangles green, indicating a strong upward trend.

CHART LEGEND
1. Monthly red Trade Triangle indicates the upward trend had reversed.
2. All Trade Triangles are now green indicating a strong upward trend.
3. Green weekly Trade Triangle indicates to cover any short positions.
4. Monthly Trade Triangle turns green.
5. A red weekly Trade Triangle indicates exit long positions.
6. New weekly green Trade Triangle kicks in at $335.
7. The RSI indicator is trading above the 50 line indicating a strong trend.
8. The MACD indicator is showing the trend is now positive.

I still believe that Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is a powerhouse to be reckoned with. Amazon's only real challenge will be regulations coming in to squash what is a shining success in entrepreneurial-ism and capitalism.

Today, I'm seeing some profit taking coming into the market and I believe that this presents an opportunity to pick up the stock of Amazon. Currently Amazon is trading just below our original Trade Triangle buy ($335) signal.

Every success with Amazon and MarketClub,

It's Time To Get Your Yahoo On

It has been some time since I did a review of Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO). I'm doing one today because a new monthly Trade Triangle kicked in at $37.16 and could be indicating the end of the 4 1/2 month stalemate in this stock.

Now, I'm not saying that this stock is going to skyrocket to the moon, but I do believe that the bulls have the upper hand and this stock will move higher in the weeks ahead.

It seems like Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) has been around forever, but it was first founded by Jerry Yang and David Filo in 1994. There have been quite a few changes to the company since that time. Marissa Mayer, previously from Google, was named president and CEO of Yahoo effective on July 17, 2012.

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) operates as a technology company worldwide. The company offers search products, including Yahoo Search, that serves as a starting point to navigate the Internet and discover information; and Yahoo Answers, which enables users to seek, discover, and share knowledge and opinions across mobile phones, tablets, and desktop.
