    By Brian Nichols - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: EW, FB, RFMD

    By Palwasha Saaim - June 11, 2013 | Tickers: EW, MDT, STJ

    Healthcare stocks resemble tech stocks, in that both are eye candy to growth investors, show volatility over business cycles and thus have less appeal to value investors. Conclusively, it is important for growth investors to understand that if they pick high-growth companies with a strong market presence, they are likely to reap greater rewards during down markets than up markets. The reason is obvious. During down markets, the stronger companies more »

    By Palwasha Saaim - March 20, 2013 | Tickers: EW, MDT, STJ

    Back in October, when Edwards Lifesciences (NYSE: EW) missed earnings forecasts and the stock plummeted to its lowest in 10 years, I rated it a buy. If you had listened, you would have profited from the rally that followed. Now, after three months, history is repeating itself.

  • Constant Growers For Your Portfolio

    By Steve Van - January 2, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CTXS, EW, ESRX

    While recently browsing in the business section of a used bookstore, I found a misplaced copy of “The Constant Gardener” by master spy novelist John le Carre.  I know very little about the plot of the novel but the title suggested an intriguing investment angle as it sat there, out of place, amongst the finance books.  An image of an old, rich man tending to his garden of growing stocks more »

    Each year, there are around 200,000 distinct insider transactions reported to SEC via Form 4 filings. While the term "insider trading" sounds nefarious, there are just a handful of cases deemed illegal by federal prosecutors each year, though anomalous, above-average returns remain.

  • Cashing in on Edwards Lifesciences' Lower Forecast

    By Palwasha Saaim - October 24, 2012 | Tickers: BSX, EW, ISRG, MDT

    For companies, there's nothing good about missing analyst forecasts. Missing guidance often marks the beginning of troubles at the company, and of course the stock price slumps. But for investors, forecast misses are sometimes good news. When Mr. Market jumps to sell his shares on such misses (mostly irrationally) and builds a downward pressure on stock prices, he makes way for average investors like you and me to find more »

  • Why Are Insiders Selling These Two Stocks?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - July 12, 2012 | Tickers: CRL, EW

    Many years of experience working directly with insiders has taught that there can be countless reasons an insider will sell shares of his company’s stock. When we keep track of insiders selling shares of their own stock, taking the time to look for those reasons instead of jumping to conclusions can help avoid bad decisions based on assumptions.

    Contrary to popular belief, officers and directors of public companies are more »
