However, often times, these stocks also tend to be momentum names like Netflix (NFLX), so you have to be careful when you initiate your short. The second category of stocks to short are those that are unquestionably going to go bankrupt at some point. JCPenney (JCP) is increasingly looking like one such example. The last category of stocks to short are those whose … Continue reading

When companies get near historic highs, investors have a tendency to get a little nervous. Gap (NYSE: GPS  ) is within points of its 10-year high, so it’s understandable if you’re a bit hesitant to jump on in. Luckily for us, there are plenty of reasons to consider picking up Gap, even as the stock jumps. Apart from the increase in overall sales, the rising dividend, and the strong balance sheet, Gap has a few lesser-known tricks up its sleeve. The key to success at Gap is in the company’s three smaller brands. Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic act as the company’s old-guard leaders, setting the tone of the business. But underneath, there are three smaller brands trying new things and offering a lot of potential. Enter Athleta, Intermix, and Piperlime. Investors would do well to investigate and understand these brands in order to truly understand the potential offered by … Continue reading

When it comes to investing, it's all about valuation and timing. If you can find undervalued assets at the right time, you can make an absolute fortune. Some assets are priceless because they are not easily replaced and offer few viable alternatives. Think about fine art, rare diamonds or vintage gold coins. Now think about the irreplaceable roads, airports and railroads we use every day. How valuable are those assets? One of the concerns the United States is currently facing is the growing need for improved infrastructure. It is a $2 trillion crisis no one is talking about. So when I think about long-term investments, infrastructure seems to be a safe bet.   Infrastructure businesses often generate consistent, growing long-term cash flows. This is because the demand for the everyday services they provide exists in virtually every economic cycle. Also, those companies are often in sectors where there are high … Continue reading

Poor results for the holiday quarter were supposed to injure Wall St.’s sentiment on Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN). On the contrary, it has continued to rise, leaving observers to ask whether the relentless progress of e-commerce has overcome a downturn in Amazon’s fortunes. Oddly, Amazon may be the beneficiary of a crop of store closings by retailers as diverse as Staples (NASDAQ: SPLS) , Macy’s (NYSE: M) and Sears Holdings (NYSE: SHLD). If the problems this represents are primarily a drop in sales and managements’ forecasts, then it would be hard to argue that any company other than Amazon has taken and will take those sales. The problem with bricks-and-mortar stores apparently has turned to the fact than many retailers have too many locations. Burdened by the costs of rent, logistics, and employees, the industry continues to retreat to its most profitable locations. A vicious cycle gets created. The fewer locations, … Continue reading

The economic and regulatory trends faced by these banks are going to force a lot of smaller institutions around the country to put themselves on the auction block and sell to a larger institution. Those that survive as a standalone bank will have proved their ability to take on the larger banks head-to-head and earn higher returns for their shareholders by stealing business from the too-big-to-fail banks like Bank of America (BAC), Wells Fargo (WFC) and Citigroup (C).
