HIGH PROFIT POTENTIAL : ALIBABA OR AMAZON



China will be the single most important economy of the 21st century. It's not something you should walk away from but, rather, look to invest in or because of.
I can't think of a better choice to get started than Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA), which dominates Chinese e-commerce there the way that Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) does here.
Not many investors realize it, but the Chinese e-commerce market is already the world's largest online retail market with total sales that may hit $1 trillion this year, and $2.416 trillion by 2020, according to eMarketer. More than half of all sales, incidentally, are via mobile devices despite the fact that only 52% of the population is online.
The variables are familiar even if China itself is not.
The middle class of 700 million people is expanding, the Internet is being used to compensate for inefficient retailers, and infrastructure is getting better – which means better delivery.
To put this in perspective, Cainiao – Alibaba's delivery and logistics division – owns 180,000 delivery stations and is rapidly expanding fresh food offerings. Bloomberg reported that Amazon only has 72, including fulfillment, sorting, and AmazonFresh hubs.
If you've ever tried to buy anything in a third-tier Chinese city supermarket, you'll immediately recognize the significance at a time when there are 200 million Chinese who have yet to get online outside first-tier urban areas.
Like Amazon, Alibaba is working on advanced artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and next-generation technologies that will bolster China's economy for decades to come.
Unlike Amazon, however, which considers growth at all costs first and profits second, Alibaba places an emphasis on making money.
Take a look.
Mar-a-Lago

That makes the company very different from FxVolatilian Group.
Like it or not.

High Profit And Easiest Way To Trade The Market Is To Buy The Whole Market.



Here’s the thing that matters now.
Until things change , the game is the game. The crony capitalists own it and make the rules, and the only way to beat them is to join them.
I don’t mean join them literally; I mean play the game the way they do. Make money the way they do.
In general, crony capitalists are all “renters” of financial assets. They’re all playing the markets. It’s the game they know best and own lock, stock, and barrel. So, anyone wanting to ascend the wealth ladder has to be in the game.
Today, I’m sharing how to play this rigged game…
Let’s start with four lucrative ways to beat crony capitalists at their own game…

Four Positions to Have in Your Portfolio

The easiest way to play the market is to buy the whole market.
I recommend doing that by buying an ETF that tracks the market, whether you prefer the Dow Jones Industrial Average as your barometer of the market, the S&P 500, the NASDAQ, or some other benchmark, there’s an ETF for you.
SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF (NYSE:DIA) follows the Dow, SPDR S&P 500 ETF(NYSE:SPY) follows the S&P 500, and PowerShares QQQ Trust ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) which tracks the NASDAQ 100 are all good choices.
The system protects the big banks, coddles them, feeds them capital, and applauds their rising profitability… And, when they get caught doing something criminal, they just pay a toll and get back on the highway.
So, own a bank. Or two.
I like Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) – not because it’s “clean.” It got caught opening up accounts for people who had no idea their signatures were being forged on account-opening documents. All that, to the tune of millions of accounts. For what? A few million bucks in fees? A few promotions? A few bonuses? Some stock options? The answer would be, yeah, all of those things. Proof that they’re criminal enterprises.
Wells Fargo isn’t out of the woods on this one yet. But it’s stock has been hit by the scandal and, of the big banks, it has the best dividend yield at 2.88%. I’d buy shares here and gladly add to my position if the stock falls. If the market drops and Wells has more fallout from the account opening scandal, it’s possible the stock could get down to $44. I’d buy it all the way down there and sit with it as a core position in my portfolio.
As far as the big banks getting broken up, unless you see steam from Hell freezing over, don’t hold your breath on that one. What we thought was going to be a 21st Century Glass-Steagall now looks like it’s going to be a bunch of rules changes that benefit regional banks and community banks, who have been beaten up inordinately by all the regulations piled on the whole industry, thanks to the criminal activity of all the big banks.
Deregulating banks will be more about easing the burdens of smaller banks, at first, than wholesale gifting to the big pigs.
To play that game, I like buying a regional bank or a community bank.
I like New York Community Bancorp Inc. (NYSE:NYCB). NYCB’s stock has been under pressure because it’s been expanding by acquisition and moving away from the core lending (to NYC rent-controlled apartment buyers) tactics that made it so stable. There’s talk that pressure on earnings might cause them to cut their dividend a little more (it’s currently yielding 5.25% according to Yahoo Finance), on top of the cut they recently announced. But the yield’s still fat, and they have plenty of money to pay it.
The fact that the stock’s been hit and is trading down at its 52-week lows is another reason I like bottom-fishing here and taking a position.
If rules and regulations hammering smaller banks, like NYCB, get turned around, their profitability will go up. You want to own one.
And then there’s technology. Specifically, a tech company that manufactures cheaply overseas, sells its products everywhere (especially here in the U.S.), and has so much cash parked overseas it would blow your mind. It owes its success not just to its loved products, but to the fact that it is the posterchild for a company that hit it out of the park thanks to “trade deals.”
I’m talking about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Own it, you won’t regret it.
Last, but never least… The market is a game and game boards can – and do – get knocked over. Because there’s always danger playing the market (unless, of course, you’re so rich you can buy more shares when there’s “blood in the streets”), it’s always a good idea to use stop-loss orders.
I like having a stop-loss order 10%-15% below where my stocks are trading. As they rise in price, I raise my stops. If the market tanks, I get taken out without getting hurt much, and look for a lower point to get back in.
That’s how the players play the game, and stretch that gap on folks who don’t know what the game is, let alone how to play it.
You’re a player now. Go get yourself some.

Long Term Trend

The long term trend of Grand Canyon Educati is UP indicating that LOPE has experienced an UP trend for at least the past 180 trading days. Long term trends are key to understanding the starting point to the path of least resistance of a stocks price trend. The expected future trend bias is always strongest with the current trend.

Short Term Trend

The short term trend of Grand Canyon Educati is UPLOPE has been undergoing a short term UP UP over the past 7-10 days.

Signal

The current signal for Grand Canyon Educati is HOLD indicating that the stock could be Pausing in its trend. The current price trend is not Extreme. Stocks in extreme levels of price trend should be allowed to move out of the extreme range before a buy or sell decision should be made. As is the case for most trending momentum style stocks, much of the reason price action is not often known until well into the price trend. But earnings growth and management efficiency are key components to a foundation to a sustainable uptrend. We will focus on fundamental indications that can build a case for reasons why the stock should continue its current trend.

Strength Rank

Rank is the rank of the stock vs. its peers. For example a Rank of 98 means the stock is out performing 98% of its peers over a 12 month period. A rank of 2 means the stock is outperforming 2% of its peers, in other words, 98% of its peers are out performing it. 98 is good, 2 is not so good. The current quarter is 40% of the weighting, so current performance is more significant to the rank.

The current rank for Grand Canyon Educati is 94, this means that LOPE is out performing 94% of its peers. Stocks that have a rank of 80 or better, with support of all other analyses shown here, tend to advance the trend.

The 90 day trend of Rank



ROE - Return on equity is a measure of financial efficiency, gauging how much profit a company is able to generate from the company financial net worth (that is, assets minus liabilities). Look for an annual return on equity of at least 20%. That is the level that set apart the winning stocks from the ordinary. That doesn't always mean that a company with smaller ROE is a poor investment. Some big winners have of course been shy of 20% return on equity when they started their major up trends. When ROE is strong, it gives investors an indication that the company is better poised to continue a solid earnings performance. A high ROE is only part of the fundamentals a solid company should have. Superb earnings and sales growth, superior profit margins and big operating cash flow are other key elements investors must seek.

The Current ROE for Grand Canyon Educati is 21.53%, indicating LOPE is currently functioning with High financial efficiency.

The 12 month chart trend of ROE




Annual EPS Growth - Companies with annual earnings growth of more than 20% are more likely to become leaders in up trending markets. While 20% Annual EPS growth is the minimum you should look for, don't be afraid to seek even better results. Studies have shown that the greatest winners in the past 30 years had an average 30% annual EPS growth rate when they started their strong up trends. You also can look for three straight years of rising EPS growth, with an average of at least 25%. These performance results often imply that a company is growing fast even if the general economy is slowing down or even in recession.

The current Annual EPS Growth for Grand Canyon Educati is 3.39% which is less than the 30% average found is strong trending, fundamentally sound companies.

The 12 month chart trend of Annual EPS Growth



Quarterly EPS Growth - Outstanding earnings growth in the most recent quarters can be the single most important trait that identifies winners before they start their major price advances. Generally, the bigger the earnings growth, the better. Specifically, look for a company's earnings per share up at least 25-30% vs. the year-ago level in the most recent quarter or two. Gains of 50%, 100% or more are typical of strong market leaders even before they make their huge price moves. There's really nothing magic about this connection. Successful companies generate the strongest profit gains, regardless of the economic cycle. Even during periods when corporate profits are weak in general, you still find standouts that achieve massive earnings growth.

The current Quarterly EPS Growth for Grand Canyon Educati is 10.89% which is less than the 25% average found is strong trending stocks even during or before huge price moves.

The 12 month chart trend of Quarterly EPS Growth



Quarterly Sales growth - A company's annual and quarterly rate of increase in revenues (sales). A measure of growth and success as long as it is accompanied by an equally strong rate of increase in earnings per share. You want to see both in a potential investment. A company's quarterly EPS gain should be supported by an increase in revenue (sales) of at least 25% or at least by an acceleration in sales growth in the past few quarters. You also should watch out for earnings growth that comes amid falling sales. Companies with declining revenue often boost their EPS results through layoffs or other cost cuts, especially in an uncertain economic environment. But this isn't a sustainable approach, and it's definitely not as desirable as profit gains that come from higher revenue. Recent quarterly sales results are more critical when it comes to researching stocks.

The current Quarterly Sales Growth for Grand Canyon Educati is 1.45% which is less than the 25% average found is strong trending stocks.

The 12 month chart trend of Quarterly Sales Growth


Dividend Yield

Dividend yield is the annual dividend income per share received from a company divided by its current share price. Normally investors would like to see a dividend yield between 2% and 20% for a dividend paying company. The dividend yield is an important factor to consider when investing in dividend paying stocks. Dividend yield is a financial ratio that reflects the % of profits a company makes of the dividend payments over the course of a year. For example if a stock pays an annual dividend of $2 and is trading at $50 a share, it would have a dividend yield of 4%.

The current Dividend Yield for Grand Canyon Educati is 0.00.

Backtesting a stock can provide investors with critical statistical data. These results give you an informed perspective on how a stock trades within your chosen buying and selling method of analysis. The definition of trade expectancy is defined as: trade expectancy = (probability of win * average win) - (probability of loss * average loss). If the calculation returns a positive number, a trader should make money over time.

The average percentage gained on positive, money making trades was 32.82%. While the average percent loss on money losing trades was 1.69%.

Trade expectancy includes both winners and losers. Trade expectancy is displayed as a percentage. This backtest displays the dollar value, percentage, annual trade expectancy, and annual percent. Annual expectancy is the trade expectancy percentage multiplied by the number of trades per year.

The Trade expectancy % for LOPE over the past year is 21.32%. The number of trades generated per year was 3 giving an Annual Trade Expectancy of 63.95%

The average days in a trade is 69 and the average days between trades is 50.

With any method of analysis that uses past performance, it can be said that past performance is not indication of future performance. What is does provide is a probabilistic look at a stock's price activity characteristics over time.

INVESTOR RESEARCH: MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM).


Things could be worse for MGM right now. Vegas is getting an NFL team, and the economic environment in the U.S. has people returning to casinos. MGM has the most to gain from this as it has more exposure in Vegas than any of its rivals, and the company has casinos in several locations in the northeast as well including Washington D.C.-based MGM National Harbor which opened in December 2016, and the newly acquired Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Beyond the U.S., MGM also boasts a significant footprint in Macau. Macau is the only place in China where it’s legal to gamble—and is the world’s largest gambling hotspot—and MGM plans to open a new location there on the Cotai Strip later this year.
But what got me excited about MGM was a technical pattern on its chart. Let’s take a look.

Source: TradingView.
What we’re looking at here is called a cup and handle pattern.
A cup and handle is easy to recognize as it looks like what it’s name suggests, a cup that is shaped like a U—and not a V—and a handle that has a downward drift. You can see both marked in the chart above.
The cup and handle pattern is a bullish continuation pattern that’s used to identify buying opportunities. It was identified by William J. O’Neil creator of the CAN SLIM investing system, and discussed in his book How To Make Money In Stocks.
Generally, cups that are longer and more U-shaped provide a stronger signal, and an ideal cup shouldn’t be too deep. The handle should form at the top of the cup pattern as it does on MGM.
To trade a cup and handle pattern, wait for the price to close above the resistance, or upper trend line, of the pattern. For MGM, we’re just now seeing a breakout above this level which you can see clearly from the zoomed-in chart below.

Source: TradingView.
When discussing the cup and handle pattern in his book, O’Neil didn’t give a formula for measuring a price target. However, Investopedia recommends measuring the distance between the bottom of the cup and the breakout level, and extending that distance upward from the breakout. In MGM’s case, that gives us a price target of around $45, or 44% above where the price is last Friday, May 26.
Fundamentally-speaking, MGM doesn’t look too expensive with a price to book of 2.85 and a price to earnings of 14.63. Do your own due diligence to understand if this is a stock you’d like to add to your portfolio. If it is, it’s at a great entry point now.
I wish you all an enjoyable Memorial Day.

INVESTOR RESEARCH: Fidelity National Information Services (FIS)

Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) 

May 25, 2017

Company Description

Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) is a global provider of banking and payment technologies. The company offers core banking solutions, outsourcing for community banks, credit unions and other financial institutions, It also offers card issuer services, risk management solutions, electronic funds transfer services and prepaid/gift card processing.



Investment Thesis

We expect mid single-digit sales growth and cost benefits from the acquisition of Sungard to provide solid earnings growth and strong free cash flow over the next several quarters. We expect FIS to use its strong cash flow to hike its dividend and, after it has reduced its debt, resume share buybacks. Given the company’s stable revenue, and history of profitable acquisitions, we think the shares are undervalued and are raising our target price from $95 to $100.

Recent Developments

On May 2, FIS reported first-quarter earnings of $0.86 per share, up 9% from the prior year period and $0.04 above consensus. Revenues totaled $2.26 billion, up 3.4% and in line with consensus, with organic revenue up 1.7% (price and volume changes only). Adjusted EBITDA was 768 million and the EBITDA margin was 34%.
By division, the Integrated Financial Solutions business posted revenue just above $1.1 billion, up 1.4% organically. Adjusted EBITDA of $442 million was above our estimate. The EBITDA margin rose 110 basis points year over year to 39.2%.

Global Financial Services reported revenue just above $1.0 billion, up 3.0% organically, driven by growth in the company’s consulting business. Adjusted EBITDA came to $283 million, with an EBITDA margin of 28%, up 240 basis points.

Earnings & Growth Analysis

Following strong growth in 2016, we expect revenue to grow 3% to $9.5 billion,, with 2% organic growth at Global Financial Services and 7% organic growth at Integrated Financial Services. Following $275 million in cost benefits last year, we expect further savings from the Sungard acquisition. We also look for growth in digital payments to continue.

As for margins, we look for the operating margin to rise from a recent average of 24% to 26% in 2017. The improvement reflects a shift toward higher margin software solutions (the cloud) at Global Financial Solutions (GFS). We also expect cost savings and growth in Europe to benefit margins. For 2017, our estimate is $4.40 per share, rising to $4.90 in 2018.

Risks

Key risks include a weakening global economy and difficulty integrating the Sungard acquisition, which could hurt earnings. Lower IT budgets could also hurt results.
Valuation

Our $100 price target is based on a multiple of 22.7 times our FY17 earnings estimate. The company’s peers typically trade at 21 times forward earnings. However, we believe FIS warrants a higher valuation based on its strong customer relationships and stable cash flows. At its current price, our target, if achieved, offers investors the prospect of a 19% return.

Fidelity National Information Services (FIS)
Current Price: $83.95
Target Price: $100
Current Valuation: 19.1 times FY17 EPS
Target Valuation: 22.7 times FY17 EPS

Option Idea: Transaction Closed For +10% Profit @ ($GOOG)

The following weekly FXVolatilian Trades option idea should be closed today for a very quick 10% profit, as the underlying stock in the recommendation, Google (GOOG), achieved its price target. The reason that the return was not any where near the 99.40% anticipated return is because GOOG achieved its target in just 10 DAYS, and nearly all of the time premium was left in the options.







Ideas presented on 5/15/17

Call (Bull) Debit Spread on Google (GOOG)
Buy 2 - July 2017, $935 strike calls for $27.90
AND
Sell 2 - July 2017, $975 strike calls for $10
Based upon FXVolatilianTrades' projected share price of $970.80 at (or before) expiration on 7/21/17, Return on Investment (ROI) would be 99.16% (including reasonable commission) if GOOG rises 3.60% in the next 9 1/2 weeks. Options are suitable for only very aggressive investors.

CLOSED ON 5/25/17 for approximately a 10% profit
