0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

Yesterday morning, retail stocks were hit hard – a result of the China tariffs. And Shah Gilani says that this bashing isn’t over yet; in fact, it could get uglier. But this isn’t necessarily bad news. Right now, think of these retail stocks as being “on sale,” and should be considered some great buying opportunities… Click here to watch.

The U.S. and China Are Battling Over More Than Trade… and Markets Still Haven’t Noticed

0 | By Shah Gilani

Everyone’s talking about how the U.S. trade tiff with China looks like it’s turning into a trade war.

Frighteningly, hardly anyone’s talking about the real war between fundamentally different frenemies.

Today, we’ll cover how the trade war is manifesting itself throughout U.S./Sino relations.

Plus, here’s why investors don’t see how geopolitical differences between the world’s two superpowers could violently upend markets

How Three Bearish Stocks Could Maul the Goldilocks Market

0 | By Shah Gilani

It’s all good, until it isn’t.

After stocks rose on the heels of their frightening October to late December selloff, like an ancient deity rising from the dead, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite only five months later making new all-time highs, analysts were talking about the goldilocks economy and the goldilocks market for stocks.

All of a sudden, everything’s changing.

The goldilocks economy is about to be sorely tested with the trade war between the U.S. and China going to DEFCON 3. And the goldilocks market is being threatened by three stocks in bear market mode.

You know what a protracted trade war could do to the economy.

Here’s what the Three Bears are capable of doing to the whole market

Uber’s Useless IPO

2 | By Shah Gilani

Because stupidity doesn’t deserve a lot of space to be discussed, I’ll keep this really brief.

Uber is stupid for waiting so long to go public.

Not only will their IPO bomb, if not on the first day (though that’s my bet), then shortly thereafter. But by going public now with their debut and reputation about to be tattered, they’re going to disenfranchise their drivers who will collectively further distance the company from maybe ever making a profit.

Forrest Gump reminded us, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

Here’s the stupid stuff Uber did and the reason why you shouldn’t touch its stock with a ten-foot pole

Newly-public Lyft Inc. (NasdaqGS:LYFT) released earnings yesterday with a loss of $1 billion. This morning on Varney & Co., when posed the question of whether he’d buy Lyft at $58 with this loss, Shah Gilani gave a firm “No.” The problems with Lyft go past the surface, so investors may want to steer clear… Click here to watch.

Boeing: Buy, Sell, or Hold?

0 | By Shah Gilani

The once high-flying Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA) stock and the company’s 737 Max 8 planes have both been grounded.

While the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) re-certifying the 737 Max to fly again is more a question of when, not if (at least Boeing and its investors hope), the flight of Boeing’s stock is less certain.

Will planes and the stock take off again, or might a long grounding of the company’s mainstay earnings generator flatline the stock or even knock it back to earth?

The two are inextricably intertwined.

Here’s what happened with the Max 8, what investigators and investors are pondering now, and specific price levels for you to answer your own buy, sell, or hold questions

Today, we’re going to talk about what the real pros are watching (and what you should be watching, too), big deficits, and bond vigilantes.

Then, later, I’ll show you what you can do to profit in the midst of the potential beginning of the end of the bull market

Apple’s Back on Top

0 | By Wall Street Insights and Indictments Staff

The Dow is quickly closing in on its record high of 26,743.50, which we saw mid-September of 2018. This morning, it broke out at 26,639.10 – 46 points higher than yesterday’s close. Even the Nasdaq Composite, which includes tech titan Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL), opened nearly a full half-percentage point higher, undoubtedly due to AAPL punching through $212, leading its market cap back to $1 trillion-status… Click here to watch.
