Hello MarketClub members everywhere. So here's a question for you...
Which stock would you buy, Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) or Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), formally known as Google? Both of these stocks are juggernauts in the Internet world, but now seem to be headed in different directions.
Let's take a look at Amazon. The stock is pretty amazing and just think, it all started by selling books at a discount to the major retail stores.

The markets are reacting very positively on the upside to all this good news.
The next big worry traders will begin focusing on is a potential rate hike later this year. Whether that comes in September or later is yet to be decided. Who knows, it may not even happen this year.
There are a number of stocks that are doing extremely well and this seems like an ideal time to look at the 52-Week New Highs on Friday Rules. If you're not familiar with these rules, here is what I look for. Continue reading "First It Was Celgene And Now This Stock" →

As this is a shortened week with no trading on Monday, you will want to pay particular attention to how these stocks close this Friday. All of the stocks are well-known and are setting themselves up for continuation moves.
The seven stocks I will be looking at are: Continue reading "7 Stocks That Are Set To Rip" →
