Levels to Watch: Bitcoin Approaches Upside Target

After reaching a new all-time high of more than $61,200 per coin last weekend, Bitcoin is currently trading around $59,000. After a large bounce off a low of $45,260, Bitcoin cleared the lower level we indicated in our last Bitcoin analysis: $53,000 to $56,000, which we used to trim our position. We stated the next level to watch is $70,000/$80,000 and we continue to believe that Bitcoin will make a local top. After recent price action, my target is now $65,000/$75,000 before we potentially see a larger drawdown. We will continue to hold our position as long-term it will trade…

Why We’re Skipping Coinbase and Prefer Voyager Digital: Overview of Crypto Trading

Voyager Digital is a smaller cap that gives investors exposure to the Bitcoin and crypto trading trend at a reasonable valuation. The company offers zero commissions and more coins than its competitors, including the rumored $100 billion market cap Coinbase that is going public soon, Kraken and Gemini. The stock is listed on the OTC market, which is higher risk than the Nasdaq as these stocks tend to be thinly traded.   Voyager is a zero-commission competitor to Robinhood, and due to many PR mishaps, has opened a door for Voyager to become a replacement for customers who seek fewer politics…

Making Sense of The Nvidia-Arm Acquisition

Last week, I wrote about the Nvidia-Arm acquisition, the politics involved as well as its chances of success. Nvidia announced last September that it reached a deal with Softbank to acquire U.K. based semiconductor and software design company Arm Ltd. for $40 billion, making it one of the biggest acquisitions in tech. Behemoths like Google and Microsoft are opposed to the deal, which requires approval from authorities in at least four governments, including the U.S., U.K., E.U., and China. Qualcomm is fighting the acquisition, as the company relies heavily on Arm for microprocessor intellectual property (IP). For reference, the name…

What’s Next for Plug Power?

With the Nasdaq still in correction territory, renewable energy star, Plug Power (PLUG), is more than 35% off the all-time high. This is after a large bounce off the recent $34 low. When the stock made a new all-time high of $75 in late January, we started to get signals of a top forming. We warned our premium readers, and even provided downward price targets we would be looking to start a position. Our readers were skeptical when we suggested a short-term price target of $34 was on the table in a webinar. At the time, this level of correction…

Q4 Earnings Analysis for Shopify, Roku, Fiverr And Palantir

In my latest Forbes article, I cover the 2020 Q4 earnings for Shopify, Roku, Fiverr and Palantir. More importantly, we explain why tech stocks have been selling off recently despite some healthy earnings reports. We discuss key points in the earnings reports from leading e-commerce software company Shopify (NYSE:SHOP), a company that’s not sitting stagnant by any means. We review Shopify’s product road map and how the company continually innovates to maintain its lead. The company grew revenue 94% YoY to $978M, topping consensus estimates by $64M (7%). Adjusted EPS of $1.58 beat estimates by $0.37. We also discuss Roku…

Podcast with Motley Fool: I’m Bullish on These Trends for 2021

Recently I joined Tim Beyers and Brian Feroldi on The Motley Fool podcast. In the hour-long interview we discussed cloud stock valuations, trends I’m bullish on, why I think Zoom Video and Shopify are the best cloud stocks, my prediction that EVs would pullback (they later did) and why that’s a buying opportunity, and why I continue to be long FUBO due to the company being centered between two important microtrends albeit extremely early. Here’s a brief summary of our conversation which occurred on February 9th prior to tech stocks selling off, and yet the information is even pertinent now.…

What’s Next for Tesla? Levels to Watch.

With the NASDAQ100 down about 10%, the current bull market’s darling, Tesla, is down about 27%. Even after a 500% increase over the past year, we believe the current correction will provide a great opportunity to participate in this real trend, which we see accelerating in 2021. The price data with Tesla suggests that a pullback to the $500-$495 region is on the table. This would provide the most ideal entry, and if we do see a drawdown to this level, expect heavy buying. We realize this would be a sizable drawdown; however, a correction to this level would confirm…

What’s Next for Bitcoin? Levels to Watch

With many popular stay-at-home stocks pulling back on heavy volume and Bitcoin testing $50,000, investors are wondering what’s in store for the world’s most popular cryptocurrency. While some traders have been—and still are—calling for a crash in Bitcoin, we see no reason to sell out just yet. View webinar here: Is This the Top?   After reaching a new all-time high of $58,300 over the weekend, Bitcoin is currently trading just under $49,000. The downward move came on the heels of a warning by U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen that Bitcoin is an “extremely inefficient” way to conduct monetary transactions, and…

Pinterest and Snap Show V-Shaped Recovery; Cloudflare Guns for Zero-Trust

2020 earnings from ad-tech stocks have shown us that digital advertising has rebounded sharply from the pandemic recession lows.  Pinterest’s growth rate dropped to 4% YoY in Q2 but has since rebounded to +77% in Q4.  SNAP’s growth rate bottomed at 17% in Q2 and has recovered to +62% in Q4.  In total, global digital advertising spend grew less than 5% in 2020 but is expected to accelerate with 17% YoY growth in 2021 as we head into a higher GDP environment.       Global digital ad spend now makes up 52% of all ad spend, the first year it has eclipsed…

Why SPACs are (Sometimes) Better than IPOs

SPACs offer retail investors the ability to invest early in a company’s life cycle. In the case of Snowflake, a company that went public via a traditional IPO, retail investors did not have this opportunity. By the time Snowflake debuted on the public markets, the share price had soared over 200% from its indicated opening price. Many pundits and analysts have claimed that the IPO process is broken due to examples like Snowflake and AirBnb. Wall Street institutions and a select group of their top clients can buy shares at discounted prices before they hit the open market. SPACs allow…
