Technical view: iShares Ultra Short-Term Bond ETF (ICSH)

  ICSH is in stage #1. BlackRock’s ultra short-term bond ETF is not necessarily an investment for dividend growth or capital appreciation. But I think I should mention it here for one specific reason and that is that I use this ETF to park my cash in. For years, I was looking for a stock Continue reading →

Technical view: Realty Income, Inc. (O)

  O is in stage #4. Realty Income (O) is a dividend darling of many investors, and it has paid and increased dividends for more than 25 years. The company went public in 1995 and survived many downturns the biggest in 2000, 2009, and 2020. It increased the dividend during those periods of time. It Continue reading →

Technical view: Amazon, Inc. (AMZN)

  AMZN is in stage #2. The stock is recovering from last year’s carnage. In 2022 it almost reached lows from 2020 Covid lows. It was a great buying opportunity. But for the entire 2023 it was rallying and erasing the losses. If you were bold enough to buy when everyone else was panicking, you Continue reading →

Technical view: Aflac Incorporated (AFL)

  AFL is in stage #2. The stock performed very well during the bear market. We had a decline but it recovered very nice and it wasn’t as deep as what we saw in 2020. Today, the stock is also pulling back from a strong rally which may provide a good opportunity.

Technical view: NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA)

  NVDA is in stage #2. The stock rallied very hard and there is a lot of controversy about this stock and the company it represents. We have a strong cult built around the stock. People would die defending it and they buy no matter what. And these people were awarded sticking to their guns Continue reading →

Technical view: Arbor Realty Trust, Inc. (ABR)

  ABR is in stage #2. This is one of the better mREITs out there. I have invested in a few of them in the past and got burned in all of them. I invested in AGNC or ARR. A friend of mine invested in NLY. All three failed. AGNC looked promising but after a Continue reading →

Technical view: AES Corp, Inc. (AES)

  AES is in stage #2. But it is a weak uptrend, though. Over a longer period of time, the stock is more in stage #3 than #2. Since 2018 it saw a volatile move up, then crash in 2020, sharp recovery and now a zig-zag trading. It makes sense to wait for the bottoms Continue reading →

Technical view: Alphabet, Inc. (GOOGL)

Alphabet (GOOGL) The stock of this giant is constantly undervalued. The company outgrowths the market every quarter, and now it is set to “turn on” its Gemini AI project. Be aware of the Terminator coming. Many investors and analysts underestimated Google being late into the AI game after its initial failure with its chatbot. They Continue reading →

Technical view: Airbnb, Inc. (ABNB)

  ABNB is in stage #2. The stock just broke above its resistance at $130 a share and rallied hard. The stock is reaching another resistance at $145, and we need to see if it breaks above it but I would assume it would gain momentum and breaks it. The weekly chart shows the breakout Continue reading →

Technical view: Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (WBA)

  WBA is in stage #4. The company reported bad earnings and a gloomy outlook last week. It sold off by 10% immediately. The company announced a closure of 450 locations and earnings was a miss. But not by much. Only by 6.3%. I have seen companies missing by far more. And investors are asking Continue reading →
