Elon Musk, the chief executive of electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), recently attempted to reassure jittery investors about potentially flagging vehicle demand. Granted, Musk had some quarterly financial and operational stats he could point to. Nevertheless, this isn’t the right time to significantly add to one’s share position in TSLA stock. Sometimes, it’s hard to…

Today, few are holding out on Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID) as a possible Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) in the making.

As we get into earnings season, the investment calendars are starting to fill up. That has investors wondering what the hot stocks for tomorrow will be. While it helps that the Federal Reserve has entered its blackout period, it doesn’t help that we will have a Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting in early February.…

On Tuesday, shares of Grom Social (NASDAQ:GROM) spiked 60% on a short squeeze. According to data from Fintel, short share availability dropped from 80,000 to 0 within several hours.

Invariably, with the Federal Reserve forced into the unenviable task of taking away the monetary punch bowl, certain stocks to avoid would come up based on mass layoffs.

Recently, I begged people not to invest in video game retailer GameStop (NYSE:GME) yet. I suggested that GME stock needs to hit $20 before anyone should jump into the trade. Even after a post-earnings rally, I’m standing by the wait-for-$20 strategy as GameStop’s financials aren’t as stellar as some perma-bulls might assume. Don’t get me wrong…

It hasn’t been a good year for growth stocks. The iShares S&P 500 Growth exchange-traded fund (NYSEARCA:IVW) is down nearly 25% with one month to go in 2022. Some of the worst performers from this ETF are going to need a new CEO. Before I come up with my three names of CEOs that need…

They’re anxious about the nation’s strict Covid-19 policies as well. Yet, Baidu shares have lost so much value that there seems to…

If you bought shares of Rivian Automotive (NASDAQ:RIVN) at or near its peak in mid-November, it’s been a bad couple of weeks for you. RIVN stock is 34% off its high of $179.47, made days after the electric vehicle maker went public. And, unfortunately, I don’t see RIVN stock making a comeback any time soon.…

Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) shareholders have been a pretty happy bunch over the past 2 years. The pandemic triggered a surge in new subscribers.
