Zynga (ZNGA) Shares Setting Up Nicely Off Bottom

It’s been a rough go for shares of Zynga (ZNGA) since the company debuted, but there is daylight.  After bottoming out around the $2 level late last year the stock began to inch higher above the first major resistance area of the 50 day moving average for the first time since the correction again.  It held that new level of support for a few months before showing signs of significant buy interest just in the … Read the rest

Who’s Winning The Tesla (TSLA) Tussle? Musk vs NYT Broder

I’ve been covering Tesla Motors (TSLA) for a few years now (not as much recently) and since the company went public in June of 2010, the scrutiny level continues to rise.  With shareholder fortunes at stake and a general skepticism of electric cars, particularly of those not made by Toyota, the microscope has zeroed in on Tesla.  If there is one thing you can count on, it’s that CEO and Co-Founder Elon Musk won’t simply … Read the rest

List Of Top Performing IPO’s (2012) Part I

I’m always a big fan of tracking the top IPO’s because it’s from this group every year that the next big winners will arise.  When I ran SelfInvestors I built a database of IPO’s and ranked everyone by fundamentals and technicals to keep close tabs on the best opportunities.  It was a lot of work but well worth it.   Since I’m not actively running an advisory service anymore, I don’t keep it up to date, … Read the rest

Facebook (FB) Beats Estimates, Relief Rally Ensues

There has been quite a bit of negative press surrounding Facebook and its stock since the day they announced they were going public.  Of course many of those concerns were valid as the company continues to find the best way to monetize its massive worldwide user base.

The stock has been hit hard in recent months, but after the bell tonight the stock is getting a healthy lift after the company beat analyst estimates by … Read the rest

Proof Golden Tate Catch Vs Green Bay A TD

OK, so this is a stocks blog and not exactly the place for a football post but I felt as a Seahawks fan I had to do my part to help get out the truth about Golden Tate’s winning catch (or partial catch) vs the Green Bay Packers.. .  even if people are getting tired of hearing about as am I.

I would like to point out that (as a Hawks fan) I’m not biased … Read the rest
