Since September, excitement for Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock has cooled down again. After surging on analyst upgrades, shares in the China-based electric vehicle (or EV) maker have fallen back considerably, as headwinds in its home market weigh on shares. Nio is being indirectly affected by the myriad of challenges the Chinese economy is now facing. More directly,
With reasonable valuations, and the possibility of steady returns via high dividends, telecom stocks can be very appealing to investors. Yet while you may be interested in adding names from this sector to your portfolio (especially during today’s high market volatility), there are plenty of telecom stocks to sell and/or avoid. Most of these telecom
Suffice it to say that 2022 is a tough year to be a mortgage origination specialist like Rocket Companies (NYSE:RKT). Frankly, RKT stock has behaved like a rocket that ran out of fuel. That’s because high mortgage rates have deterred home-buying activity. This situation won’t likely resolve anytime soon as the U.S. Federal Reserve, or
In recent coverage of SoFi Technologies (NASDAQ:SOFI) stock, I’ve provided two key reasons as to why it’s not worth buying. First, the market is overestimating the impact of its student loan catalyst. Second, taking into account long-term earnings forecasts, a recovery for the fintech firm’s shares at best may only entail a move back to
Times have been tough for Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ:PTON) stock lately. Its financials have been terrible, and some high-level executives are leaving. Investors who are counting on Peloton’s deal with Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) to make everything better shouldn’t hold their breath. Remember how Peloton was a darling of the markets during the spread of Covid-19 in early
All signs are pointing to the Republicans winning the majority of the House in the 2022 midterm elections. Still, one or more “October surprises” could materialize that could conceivably prevent the GOP from gaining a majority. So, just in case one or more of those scenarios (such as peace in Ukraine and a sudden deceleration
I’ll be the first to acknowledge that there’s some cache to being a Dow stock. But that doesn’t mean investors should be obligated to buy. When the market turns, sometimes those names become Dow stocks to sell – and that’s where we are today. Of course, it first pays to know exactly what a Dow
Check out recent headlines about Carvana (NYSE:CVNA) stock, and you may start to think the opportunity to bottom-fish in this former stock market high-flier has emerged. Since last year, shares in this automotive e-commerce company have fallen by more than 94%, from an all-time high of $370.10 per share to around $20 per share today.
Cryptocurrencies are still facing a myriad of issues. For one, the value of most cryptos are still hovering around 52-week lows. Two, the Biden Administration is looking to regulate the sector intensively. Three, there are concerns about the impact Bitcoin (CCC:BTC-USD) miners are having on the climate. I also believe the chances of crypto mining being greatly
There was a time, a few years ago, when it was easy to recommend Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock. Back then, the streaming company was quickly gaining subscribers. However, circumstances have changed and Netflix is actually losing subscribers. Granted, traders are buzzing about Netflix’s likely soon-to-come ad-supported tier. However, investors shouldn’t be overly bullish as introducing ads won’t
The miserable year for tech stocks just won’t end, so nobody could really blame you if you started looking for tech stocks to sell. While tech seemed to have a resurgence in August and gave growth investors some hope in an utterly miserable year on the market, the sector is once again on the downturn.
Reportedly, Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) and Japanese pharmaceutical company Eisai (OTCMKTS:ESALY) achieved positive test results for their Alzheimer’s disease treatment. As you might expect, BIIB stock exploded higher on this news. However, these are early-stage results and prospective investors should read the fine print. Besides, if the good news has already been priced in, then buying now is tantamount
Nio (NYSE:NIO) has to deal with many of the same issues that other Chinese electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers do. For example, the company has to contend with supply-chain constraints and the challenge of sourcing lithium for EV batteries. On the other hand, an arrangement with a lithium producer may provide an advantage for Nio. That
What exactly does Ideanomics (NASDAQ:IDEX) stock represent? Is it an electric vehicle (EV) design company? Or a tractor producer? Maybe it’s trying to be a wireless charging provider this week? How about a maker of street sweepers? Frankly, it’s hard to pin this company down, and IDEX investors are understandably unimpressed with the company’s poor financial results.
As has been the case lately, investors are continuing to bail on Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) stock. Just in the past month, shares in the fledgling electric vehicle (EV) maker are down around 50%. While you can blame market volatility for some of these price declines, the bulk of them are due to decreased confidence in
There’s a saying in investing, attributed to Warren Buffett, that you don’t see who’s swimming naked until the tide goes out. Essentially, this means that poorly run and troubled companies are most exposed during market downturns. This is certainly proving to be the case this year. With all the major U.S. indices now in bear
Headline inflation numbers continue to run near their highest levels in 40 years. The Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 more basis points in September. Analysts are rightly nervous about how long this rising-price period will persist. However, one key sector of the economy is already signaling that the worst of the inflation has
To investors bullish on SoFi Technologies (NASDAQ:SOFI) stock, the recent performance of its shares may seem irrational. In their view, the market is failing to factor in the potential tailwind stemming from the lifting of the student loan moratorium starting Jan. 1, 2023. After this happens, this fintech firm will supposedly benefit from a big
As a sensible investor, the last thing you need is drama. Yet, there’s no shortage of it when it comes to electric vehicle (EV) startup Faraday Future (NASDAQ:FFIE) stock. The company is, as we’ll discover, in a capital-poor financial state. Granted, FFIE investors responded well when Faraday Future apparently managed to avoid a lawsuit from a
The potential for high returns and stable income streams have made real estate investment trusts, or REITs, a popular investment vehicle. However, not all REITs are created equal, especially with a potential recession hanging overhead. On today’s list, I take a look at three REITs to sell. The reasoning for my bearishness on these particular
