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.

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.

Is It Time To Buy Yelp, Inc. (NYSE:YELP)?

Yelp (NYSE:YELP) is the go-to app for reviews on restaurants, shopping, local services and the like.

Earlier this year in March, Yelp was trading over $100 a share and looked on its way to the moon. However, just the reverse happened and Yelp lost half its value by early June. Since that time, the stock has recovered and traded as high as $80 in early July.

There are several reasons why I like this stock right now and they're all technical. I have no inside knowledge of what is going on inside Yelp, but I can say that the technicals are looking very positive for the stock. Today, the weekly Trade Triangle kicked in, indicating that the intermediate trend is now inline with the longer term uptrend.

1. All of the Trade Triangles are positive and displaying a +100 Chart Analysis Score.
2. There is a monthly Trade Triangle in place.
3. Pivot Point - measures the move to $85 a share.
4. Weekly Trade Triangle kicked in today at $76.49.
5. The RSI indicator is trending to the upside and is over 50.
6. The MACD indicator has recently turned up.

Just remember, there are no guarantees in trading, even with all the positive indicators. I'm looking for Yelp, Inc. (NYSE:YELP) to trade back to the $85 level in the near-term. As always, please remember to use money management and stops that work for your own trading strategy.

Good luck and every success trading in Yelp shares,

1.2 Billion Passwords, Putin and Cyber-Warfare

Normally the summer months tend to slow down as most traders like to get away for a short break and a little R and R. This year however has been different, as turmoil in the world stage continues. You only have to look at what is going on in the Ukraine, which continues to escalate with Putin's quest to restore the old Soviet Empire. Over in the middle east, the picture is grim and the hatred between Hamas and Israel shows no signs of a resolution. With all that going on, you would think that nothing else could come along to upset the apple cart.

The biggest news this week in my mind was not the Ukraine or the conflict between Hamas and Israel, it was the theft of 1.2 billion usernames and passwords!

This astounding feat was accomplished by a small group of eight Russian hackers. As you may recall, the US and Europe upped their sanctions on Russia, and tit for tat, Russia turned around and cut imports from both Europe and the US. I am afraid that the theft of 1.2 billion usernames and passwords is just another escalation of cyber warfare that Russia is spearheading against the West. [Read more...]

Is The Gold Rush On?

Today, I'm going to be focusing on gold (FOREX:XAUUSDO). It would appear as though this market had a number of cycles that are coming due and some that have just passed. It also looks as though all of the problems in the world haven't had any real powerful effect on gold. Normally in times of uncertainty, gold has been the go-to asset for most investors, but for some reason, not this time.

With today's strong upward market action, there have been a couple of technical indicators click over to the upside, these indicators are the forerunners of a larger, more extended move to the middle of September. By mid-September, gold could be trading at the $1,420-$1,430 level, if all of the technical indicators line up.

For many traders, gold has been somewhat of a disappointment in 2014, even though it is plus some $70 for the year. Many gold bugs were expecting much higher levels by this time, given all of the uncertainties with the banks and conflicts around the world.

The next 4 to 6 weeks could be very exciting in this precious metal and I expect this excitement to come in the form of a move to the upside. In this detailed video, I will show you exactly where the cycles are, plus the technical indicators that I'm watching closely for further confirming evidence that a bull move is underway.

Time To Buy Tesla

Yesterday, Tesla Motors Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) flashed a buy signal at $229.78. This put all three Trade Triangles in a positive trend.

The RSI indicator moved over the 50 level, which is also another strong confirmation. I view that action as the continuation of a strong upward trend for Tesla.

CHART LEGEND
1. Long-term positive trend line
2. All Trade Triangles are positive
3. Weekly buy Trade Triangle yesterday
4. The RSI indicator is now over 50
5. Upside target zone of $300

Technically, I can see Tesla Motors Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) moving to the $300 range. Look for near-term resistance around the $240 and $260 levels.

The Truth About Amazon

When was the last time you bought something on Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN)? For me, I purchased a pair of cycling gloves last week. It seems that when Amazon reported a wider than expected loss, investors were surprised and shocked. What were they expecting?

The reality is that Amazon is a juggernaut in online commerce and is seeking world domination in selling you stuff. The strategy that Jeff Bezos is using for Amazon is not new, Sam Walton in the 60s did the exact same thing with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT). Sam's idea was pretty simple, start with low prices so it puts your competitors out of business, then you can raise your prices afterwards. Amazon is doing the same thing, but online.

Just like Walmart, Amazon made it easy to buy something and return it if you don't like it, all with no hassles. Amazon is building something that is incredibly valuable - millions of consumers who want to buy products through them alone.

Just imagine, all Amazon has to do is raise prices just a little bit and they will be very profitable. Will consumers run the other way when this happens? No, as consumers we are so trained to buying at Amazon that a small price increase is not necessarily going to have buyers running.

Let's face it, we are all creatures of habit and I've gotten into the habit, like millions of other consumers, of just going to Amazon looking for an item and buying from them. Sure, if I searched around the web and spent a lot of time, I may save a dollar or two, but I would also be potentially doing business with companies I don't know. How reputable are they? Do I feel comfortable giving them my credit information and other private information? [Read more...]
