It has been a few years since I last tried a glazed doughnut from Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Inc. (NYSE/KKD), but I still remember the mouthwatering taste of the 400-calorie treat.  Krispy Kreme was then a "Made in America" success story. In the time since, the climate has changed.…

My wife called it big-time when she said that investors should buy Martha Stewart's stock as the domestic guru went to jail. The stock went from under $10 per share to a recent 52-week high of $37.45 per share. By any measure, this is an awesome stock market…

In Paris this week, all eyes are pointed upward, as the Paris Air Show, the world's largest celebration of the airline and air defense industry, roars through the sky.  The big guns, Boeing, Airbus, and Rolls-Royce, are seeing good numbers in orders--especially from airlines in India and China,…

When I'm bullish, I like to see positive trends develop. When I'm bearish, trading downward trends by shorting can generate some outstanding returns. But a trend that has been developing to the point where I'm concerned is the country's national debt.  I must say that each time I…

Day in and day out, I scour the market looking for investment opportunities. When you settle on an investment theme that really makes sense, you automatically pay more attention to companies that fit into this category. I talked before about the eye care industry as an investment theme…

Over the past few weeks, we have seen some momentum shift back into the technology sector, in spite of continued valuation concerns and a lack of any sustained capital spending. Some of the buying I'm currently seeing in the tech sector reminds me of the heady days back…

It really is fun to look for exciting small companies in the stock market. No matter what the broader market is doing, there are always some growing companies that are capitalizing on a new industry trend. As you know, I love to consider new investment themes. In this…

Finding great companies in which to invest isn't all that difficult. No, really. Finding those companies for a reasonable price with the right market sentiment is the difficult part. One of the best ways to look for stocks is to run screeners. You can do this right over…

A few days ago, I discussed the impact of low-cost Chinese furniture on the U.S. furniture industry and how the establishment of heavy duties and trade warnings against China may be risky. I pointed to the facts that China and the U.S. will become significant trade partners and…

Long-term success in the investment world is more about persistence than it is getting lucky. In regards to the stock market, time and patience are your most important assets. It takes courage to sit on the sidelines, watching and waiting for a good opportunity, but patience is almost…

New scientific system finds most profitable stocks before they soar. It has even found stocks that went up an astonishing 34 to 219 times. I consider this system to be my true lifetime achievement.  It would have spotted Microsoft on March 25, 1986. $10,000 invested then would be…

When reading my commentary yesterday on how the recent U.S. consumer confidence report is nothing but a cruel joke to debt- laden Americans, I'd bet that many of our Canadian readers were feeling pretty good about themselves. To many Canadians, the grass is always greener on this side.…

One pick is up 1,540% so far and we've just uncovered 3 stocks that will probably do even better!  Get ready for a 1,000-point NASDAQ explosion!  The fuse is already lit. The NASDAQ's gains of 2004 will seem like a tiny Chinese firecracker pop compared to the ballistic…

Over the past 24 months, 32 stocks I have recommended have gained more than 100%! Here are just a few examples of my actual annualized returns: 701% PROFIT from Golden Star Resources 388% PROFIT from Wheaton River Minerals 1,059% PROFIT from Prosoft Training 391% PROFIT from Bema Gold…

Here's how to hone in on the still perfectly legal "secret" strategy used by some of Wall Street's most conniving, most manipulative (and most successful) super-rich traders, so you too can rake in huge, over-night profits like these: 87% profit in just 22 days on Teleplus Enterprises 74%…

This past September 17, 2004, I recommended a Toll Brothers put option at $3.70. Only twelve business days later, on October 5, 2004, that option was trading at $8! In a matter of days -- a profit of 116%! Is it any wonder B.E. recently wrote me from…
