There was a time when it seemed investors couldn’t get enough of electric vehicle stocks. In their euphoria, they bid up shares of established players all the way down to pre-revenue startups to unsustainable heights. Then the bubble burst and EV stocks came crashing down. Amid concerns about demand destruction, range anxiety and the viability…

These recent weeks have been very bullish for investors looking at infrastructure stocks. On Nov. 5, the U.S. government passed the much-discussed infrastructure bill.

Redditors and short-squeezes go hand-in-hand these days. And the stock action is bananas. But not all of the market’s most-shorted stocks are necessarily part of this popular storyline. And as we’ll explain below, that’s promising for investors other than apes and bears in three higher short-interest stocks. The short-squeeze play has risen to notorious prominence…

Although benchmark indices have again found themselves trading at all-time highs, it’s difficult not to wonder if you risk holding the bag. For one thing, volatility between July 14 through July 19 gave everyone a reminder that anything could happen. Thus, the narrative for exchange-traded funds or ETFs is only brightening.
