Under Armour's Earnings Just Weren't Enough

Under Armour Inc. (NYSE:UA) reported its third quarter results Thursday morning, and it managed to beat expectations. But you wouldn't know that if you looked at its stock price today. It's been trading in the -6% loss territory all day.

Under Armour even set a record in the 3rd quarter by having their first ever $1 billion revenue quarter. In fact, they topped $1.2 billion in revenue and yet, it wasn't enough for investors today. Revenue jumped 28%, topping the $1.18 billion Wall Street expected from Under Armour. Earnings per share also advanced, rising to .45 from .41 a year ago, topping the .44 that analysts were looking for. Is this just profit taking or is there something else going on? I'll share with you my thoughts on Under Armour. Continue reading "Under Armour's Earnings Just Weren't Enough"

Will Starbucks' New Service Deliver For Investors?

Starbucks Corp Inc. (NASDAQ:SBUX) officially opened a pilot location for the their much-anticipated Green Apron Delivery service today in New York City's Empire State Building. It opens almost a year to the day after CEO, Howard Schultz, announced that Starbucks would be looking into a delivery option, calling it their "version of e-commerce on steroids." It only caters to customers in the building, but will likely serve as the proving ground for future delivery kitchens.

The questions is, will this new pilot service prove worthy of implementation country wide? Will this move propel Starbucks to new heights?

I'll give you my analysis of Starbucks Corp Inc. (NASDAQ:SBUX) in today's video. I will also take a look at gold, the indices and update my thoughts on some other stocks that I mentioned last week.

Stay Strong, Stay Disciplined.

Every success with MarketClub,

Starbucks, Netflix, Gold and A Whole Lot More

Hello MarketClub members everywhere! I have a lot to cover today, so let's get started right away.

Starbucks gave a major buy signal yesterday. I have talked about the $59.50 area as resistance and that barrier was breached with Starbucks Corp. (NASDAQ:SBUX) closing at an all-time high. I guess that means that our morning cup of coffee is going to go up as well.

Netflix.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) announced a one dollar increase in its most popular plan. Some say this is a gamble, but the reality is, most consumers are not concerned with a one dollar increase and a price tag of $9.99 for unlimited entertainment.

A Perfect Day For A Reversal And Some Stocks To Buy

Hello MarketClub members everywhere, no doubt you have seen the sharp rally which started on Friday and continued yesterday. Tuesdays typically are days when you see a reversal and I expect today will be no different from other trend reversal days.

The proximity of major resistance for all three indices indicates that professionals will be selling against those highs. I'm talking about the DOW which has major resistance at 16,993.43, the S&P 500 which has major resistance at 2020.86 and finally the NASDAQ which has resistance at 4960.87. I do not expect those levels to be taken out on this current rally.

The choppy trading action we had been seeing for the past six weeks is a fight between the bullish forces and bearish forces of the market. At times like this, it is best to look at the big picture for the true trend. That picture still indicates to me that the major trend is down for all three indices.

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. Continue reading "Hello Europe, Life Goes On"
