  • 3 Valuable Wallflower Stocks

    By Jacob Wolinsky - July 1, 2013 | Tickers: GPOR, RAD, WAG

    Last week’s sell off saw some big names falling off the cliff. Stocks that gained handsomely in the rally so far, such as Gulfport Energy (NASDAQ: GPOR), Rite Aid (NYSE: RAD), and Walgreen (NYSE: WAG) were natural targets for investors to dump. However, this does not necessarily mean there is anything wrong with these stocks. Here is a closer look.

  • Billionaire Israel Englander’s Small Cap Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: GDI, GXP, GPOR, MDR, SLE

    Our analysis of hedge funds’ 13F filings over time has found that their most popular small cap stocks earn an average excess return of 18 percentage points per year (learn more about our small cap strategy). We think that this is because large institutional investors such as mutual funds pay less attention to small caps (which we define as those with market capitalizations between $1 billion and $5 billion), making more »

  • Has Billionaire Ken Griffin Found Alpha in Small Caps?

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 3, 2013 | Tickers: GPOR, LSI, RAM, SLE, SM

  • Utica Shale Provides Growth, but at What Cost?

    By Joshua Bondy - April 22, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, GPOR, TOT

    Utica shale is spread from Ohio to New York State. Many parts of the formation are still being explored. A number of companies are selling Utica acreage or have decided to stay away from the North American natural gas market altogether. Companies currently in the field are quick to talk about Utica's growth possibilities, but recent data shows a significant portion of the production will be natural gas.

  • Billionaire Ken Griffin's Newest Stock Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - March 3, 2013 | Tickers: ADT, ADSK, CIE, GPOR, TXT

  • Should You Invest in Shale Gas in Appalachia?

    By Nate Wooley - February 20, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, GPOR, HES, MWE, WPZ

    Unless you, as an investor, have been willfully blind, America is undergoing somewhat of an energy renaissance lately. The growth of the natural gas sector has made for a better forward-looking energy outlook for the country and that should make it easier for people to get ahead. Possibly, even in some areas of the country where most boom times just pass right on by.

    In this case I'm discussing more »

  • Market Moving Calls on Friday that Could Spark Additional Movement Next Week

    By Brian Nichols - December 8, 2012 | Tickers: FCX, GOOG, GPOR, PNC, SLCA

    When an analyst provides a call it almost always creates short-term movement. Most of the time investors don’t even read the notes from the upgrade, they are simply buying because it was upgraded. However, sometimes an analyst call is more than just a headline on Yahoo! Finance, it provides substance and real catalysts that could create long-term movement. Therefore, I am looking at the top calls on Friday, all more »

    By Matthew DiLallo - November 2, 2012 | Tickers: APC, CHK, GPOR, MWE, REXX

    Don't talk to me about aesthetics or tradition. Talk to me about what sells and what's good right now. And what the American people like is to think the underdog still has a chance.” - George Steinbrenner

    Much like sports fans, investors want to win.  Those wins are not seen in a column or in championship rings, but by consistently and handily beating the market. However, just like championships more »

  • Three Stocks I Was Watching in September

    By Matthew DiLallo - September 25, 2012 | Tickers: CHK, F, GPOR, PETS, REXX

    About a month ago I wrote about three stocks that I needed to watch closer in September because I had overlaid options on them that were going to expire.  These positions are part of a continuation of a virtual portfolio I’m managing called the “No Drip, No Mess” Portfolio.

  • Eye of the Storm

    By Gerelyn Terzo - September 4, 2012 | Tickers: GPOR, ALL, TRV

    With Hurricane Isaac wreaking havoc over the Gulf of Mexico, residents heeded evacuation orders while television reporters compellingly positioned themselves most directly in the center of the storm's path. Thrill-seeking investors can be like the media in their willingness to take risky bets that offer no promise but the potential of reward. Like reporters, investors can position themselves in the eye of storm Isaac - if not physically than at more »

    By Matthew DiLallo - August 24, 2012 | Tickers: CHK, F, GPOR, PETS, REXX

    Earnings season gets most of the attention as stocks zig and zag depending on which side of earnings estimates the penny falls.  In the grand scheme of things quarterly earnings are a mere snapshot in time.  For most of us we realize that financial security won't come by making a quick buck on an earnings bounce but about taking the longer term view.  That’s why I’ve created more »
