The Growth Stock Diet

While there isn’t any substitute for the diet and exercise you promised yourself you’d do six weeks ago, there’s a stock diet that will allow you to make huge progress in your equity portfolio. It’s called the SNaC Diet, and it’s the best way to get your portfolio in shape, even if you can’t seem to make progress in the campaign against your love handles. SNaC stands for Story, Numbers and Chart, and it’s the method I use to pick growth stocks for the Cabot Emerging Markets Investor.

Five Steps of a Market Bottom: Where are We?

In my January 28 Cabot Wealth Advisory, I wrote about the five key characteristics to look for as the market builds a bottom.

Apple (AAPL) and Zika

The best time to buy Apple (AAPL) was in 2003 after the Internet Bubble had burst and technology stocks were treated like dirt. Of course, no one wanted AAPL back in 2003, but in the 13 years that followed, the stock soared 9,400%. The best time to sell AAPL was in mid-2012, when AAPL became the world’s most valuable company.

How to Benefit from Daily Trading Order Flow

As the market was unwinding, the question I often heard from subscribers of Cabot Options Trader and Cabot Options Trader Pro, was “what stocks were on your watch list to buy?” My answer was always the same: look at the Daily Order Flow Reading email that I send every day for the best ideas on what to short and what to buy.

Cabot Weekly Review

Remain Defensive | Cabot Weekly Review

In this week’s Stock Market Video, Cabot Growth Investor and Cabot Top Ten Trader Chief Analyst Mike Cintolo discusses the market's recent bounce, pointing out the good (some stocks are separating from the pack during earnings season) and bad (the overall bounce in the indexes has been weak) of the past two weeks. Overall, Mike remains defensive, and while he's prepared for any buy signal that comes (possible within five to 10 trading days if things go right), he's definitely sticking with a defensive stance today, while he builds his watch list of potential new leaders of the next bull move.
