---2018 HIGHLIGHTS (RECAP*)---
BITCOIN USD (BTC-USD) ____
While this isn't an official trade in our premium member community; I have been publicly vocal on my bullish thesis regarding Bitcoin. And I am long Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies. On many levels the coin has outperformed the markets and other asset classes by a meaningful amount. There is so much to be said about this coin and why I believe it should have a place in everyone's speculative portfolio. Granted, Bitcoin is very volatile and it comes with a great degree of risk but allocating 1% of your portfolio in this space can make a huge difference if your bet is correct.
VS the SPY YTD: +23.38% 3-year: +44.28% 5-year: +66.09%
Place Bitcoin (and other crypto-currencies) on your watchlist; I would not be surprised to see this at $100k before years end.
SPOTIFY TECHNOLOGY (SPOT) ____
A premium member winning trade. We entered this trade in the low $130s based on our knowledge of trading channels. The stock most recently went as high as $154. 29 before pulling back. All and all; the stock is up nicely from our buy-zone. I remain bullish on SPOT if it does not violate its channel to the downside. I see SPOT hitting $160 in short order. Find out how to trade a channel HERE.
S&P 500 (SPY) & RUSSELL 2000 (IWM) ____
A premium member winning trade. We went short the market a few weeks ago when the market appeared ripe for a pullback. This was an effective strategy because we were able to make money with the most recent market sell-off.
While I am overall bullish on the market; our SPY short was initiated to provide us with a hedge.
The market has since rallied back and most recently achieved all-time highs (SPY). With the SP500 posting gains not seen since 1997, one should ask themselves if the bull market is here to stay?
Make sure to keep an eye on both the SPY and the IWM; remaining in an uptrend will do good for any long only portfolio.
AURORA CANNABIS INC. (ACB) ____
A premium member winning trade. We were able to capitalize on this trade on the long side, adding it to the list of marijuana stocks we were able to trade successfully. We were able to achieve double and triple digit returns in companies like Tilary, Inc (TLRY); Canopy Growth (WEED.TA / CGC) and Cronos Group (CRON) and I am curious to see if the same will unfold with ACB.
The recent sell-off in the pot market has added some pressure to this stock; however, the technical chart remains intact (relatively speaking).
I remain bullish on the marijuana sector in the long term. Add ACB to your watchlist.
ZOETIS, INC. (ZTS) ____
A premium member winning trade.
ZTS continues to show extreme strength. I have been publicly bullish on this stock for quite some time. We initiated a position within this stock when it was trading in the low $90s and each price target I have placed on this stock has been achieved in a-relatively- short period of time. The stock surpassed our $110 target a few trading days ago and I quickly upped our secondary target to $120. The stock went as high as $116.47; coming within a few percentage points of that target.
Add ZTS to your watchlist. There is still potential upside.
THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY (DIS) ____
A premium member winning trade.
I remain bullish on the stock in the longer term. As a reminder, we entered this trade in the low $100s. With a recent high of $145.43; the stock has clearly broken out of a multi-year channel and have provided both premium and free members with a good sized returns.
Disney was on our list of stocks to OUTPERFORM the market in 2019. So far; it's doing one heck of a job. Find out more about that list HERE.
I remain bullish on any stock that continues to make new 52 week highs/all time highs. I am therefore bullish on Disney. With blockbuster hits being released like Toy Story 4 and The Lion King; I suspect we can see $150-$200 within 2019.
Add DIS to your watchlist
ZYNGA INC. (ZNGA) ____
A premium member winning trade. The stock continues to put in new 52 week highs, even in a declining market. With a new 52 week high of $6.55; premium members saw a WHOPPING 84% gain on this stock.
The technical chart is extremely bullish and I see a projected year end target of around $8.
Add ZNGA to your watchlist. I believe the stock is going higher.
BRISTOL-MYERS SQUIBB COMPANY (BMY) ____
A premium member winning short trade. When opportunities present themselves we try our best to capitalize on price action. In this case; with a recent low of $43.81; we were able to capture north of 15% on this short trade.
Although BMY gained a bit of momentum a few weeks ago; it has not bucked its overall downtrend. And the stock made a new 52 week low.
Add BMY to your short watchlist
EVO PAYMENTS INC. (EVOP) ____
Another HUGE winner in the premium member community. Premium members were able to capitalize on this mid-cap hidden gem. Take note that this stock was also listed on our top stocks to succeed in 2019. Find out more about that list HERE.
With a recent high of $31.83; premium members are up over 50% from the lower end of our stated entry zone. If the stock continues to act in the manner in which it has; I see $40 in the shorter term.
Add EVOP to your watchlist; a stock with the potential to double written all over it.
JD.com, Inc. (JD) ____
A premium member winning trade. With a recent high of $32; premium members were up north of 70% on this trade. I indicated on our last weekly update that JD needs to begin trading over $28 for my bull thesis to remain intact. With a close of $31.08; we are currently above those key levels. I am bullish on JD with a projected price target of $35. Let's continue to monitor.
Walmart, Inc. (WMT) ____
Another premium member winning trade. I have been publicly bullish on WMT since the beginning of 2019 with a price target of $110. With a close of $114.60; the market has surpassed that target. Walmart appears as though its ready to leave the station. I see a short term target of $120.
Add WMT to your watchlist; I see more upside from here.
