Emerging markets have not been as kind to investors in 2018 as they were last year – and one global strategist cited in today’s article cautions that “”This is not over by any means…The longer the Federal Reserve (Fed) takes easing away, the more they’re tightening, the more trouble for emerging markets, and we haven’t seen the worst of it.” For traders looking to profit from the continued misfortunes expected for emerging markets, the author highlights three inverse exchange-traded funds to consider.

The author of today’s article posits that, in the current environment, “it could be beneficial to look for stocks that show signs of improving fundamentals that could be at the beginning of new up trends.” To identify stocks matching this profile, the author screened for cheap (trading under $5) stocks exhibiting improving fundamentals (improvement in both sales and earnings in the last quarter) and where there is evidence that traders believe a price turnaround is sustainable.

As those affected by Hurricane Harvey or Irma begin to file insurance claims – and with some estimates of the insured losses from those storms being in the tens of billions of dollars – many traders might be tempted to take a “sell first, ask questions later” approach to property and casualty insurer stocks – and this could create a buying opportunity for others. In an effort to identify insurance stocks that might be worthy of further consideration, the author of today’s article screened for low-priced, cheap (based on earnings estimates) property and casualty insurer stocks that pay a dividend.

While tech stocks have been grabbing a lot of headlines of late, most of the attention has been on the so-called FAANG stocks. However, today’s article notes that the best-performing tech stock of 2017 thus far – a video game name up 76% – has received far less attention. What is the tech stock in question – and is its “stealth rally” likely to continue (and even accelerate) from here, or should traders proceed with caution? CLICK HERE for more.
When it comes to the seasonal tendencies that companies exhibit, today’s article states that “traders could seek to understand why a particular seasonal tendency exists for each company, or they could simply try to trade the tendencies.” The author takes the latter approach, seeking to identify stocks that, historically, have performed better than average in the month of January, while choosing to ignore the reasons behind this tendency. The author’s screen yielded eight stocks that were winning trades in at least 70% of the Januaries for which data was available. To find out what these eight stocks are, CLICK HERE.
