Why I’m Conflicted About the Dow Dog Pack

I presciently got investors out of small caps and the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSE: IWM) in August and warned about the higher risk in the Nasdaq-100 a few weeks before that. I was preparing to move followers into the Dow, as the dogged performance of the SPDR Dow Jones (NYSE: DIA) ETF illustrates what seems to be opportunity for “Dog of the Dow” theorists. The DIA seems to be calling out for acquisition given the underperformance of the Dow in recent times versus the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq. However, I’m conflicted about the purchase today, due to the international economic exposure of Dow dogs and apparent relative risk being priced in immediately. So, do we buy the DIA or not? See the full report about the Dow stocks here.

Apple Could Disappoint Wall Street this Quarter

While I doubt Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) could miss the analysts’ consensus target for it this quarter, I think there is a possibility that the company could disappoint the market when it reports its earnings results nonetheless. So what happens if it does? Would its future prospects be enough to hold valuation ground? Undoubtedly, the company will talk about its astounding early orders of new iPhones, its just received clearance to sell in China and its prospects for Apple Pay and the Apple Watch, and maybe a new iPad. So, for the long-term Apple looks fine, but at the hour of its EPS release, it might still dip a bit if the result disappoints Wall Street. If I haven’t vetted that possibility efficiently through this article, you buy that dip after it settles. See the full report on Apple’s earnings preview here.

Ebola Threatens Global Stocks

Ebola is worthy of Wall Street worry, because if the situation worsens and the disease spreads to Europe and/or the United States it poses a serious threat to the global economy. The disease is so lethal and terrifying that it could seriously impair commerce. Should it do so, it would force layoffs and drive global recession. As a result, and even preceding such a dire scenario, stocks would collapse globally. Is the CDC correct in its reassurance that Ebola is not of concern to us then? Find the full report on the Ebola threat to stocks here. Article concerns SPDR S&P 500 (NYSE: SPY), SPDR Dow (NYSE: DIA), PowerShares QQQ (Nasdaq: QQQ), iShares Russell 2000 (NYSE: IWM), PowerShares DB US$ Bullish (NYSE: UUP), SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond (NYSE: JNK), iPath S&P VIX (NYSE: VXX), iPath S&P GSCI Crude (NYSE: OIL) and SPDR Gold Trust (NYSE: GLD).
