Adding Xilinx to my Volatility Portfolio as one last FOMO pick through the end of the year

On November 6 I added chip maker Xilinx (XLNX) to my Volatility Portfolio as one last FOMO pick to go with Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) and Cirrus Logic (CRUS). The stock closed that day at $93.77. It closed essentially unchanged at $93.29 today. My argument for the timing of this buy is that investors and especially […]

Adding JD.Com to my Volatility Portfolio on strength of Singles’ Day performance and ahead of Friday’s earnings report

Last time I owned Alibaba (BABA) e-commerce competitor JD.Com (JD) I got a 25% short-term pop. I think it's time to go back to that trade again. JD.Com sold $29.17 billion in goods during the recently completed Singles' Day shopping frenzy. That was a new record for JD.Com and even through the company's sales volume […]

Tech stocks acting like they’re good to rally to the end of the year

I'm using my Volatility Portfolio pick Cirrus Logic (CRUS) as an indicator of the trend in technology stocks--particularly chip stocks--through the end of 2019. And right now that indicator is pointing up. On November 1, the company's shares jumped to $72.43 from $58.49 on way better than expected earnings. That was a 23.8% move to […]

Re-adding tech pick Twilio to my Volatility Portfolio

On October 18 I made Twilio (TWLO) one of my 3 picks for the next wave in tech profits in my Special Report of that name. Here's a standalone post on that stock for bookkeeping purposes: Twilio is  my favorite play in the red-hot cloud software platform sector. (To keep you up with the jargon, Twilio […]

Special Report: 3 Picks for the Next Wave in Tech Profits

I've recently made two tech picks for the shorter-term. I think that over the next four weeks or so both Cirrus Logic (CRUS) and Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) will beat Apple (AAPL) and an Apple-driven technology sector rally. But what about the longer term for technology stocks that will be driven higher over the next 5 […]

So how’s my “Tech is back” call (and picks of SWKS and CRUS) doing?

On October 8 I wrote "Tech is back" led by fact-based speculation that Apple (AAPL) had asked supplier to increase production of components for the iPhone 11 by 10%. That, obviously, was a good sign for Apple, which is set to announce earnings on October 30. And, I argued even better for Apple suppliers with […]

My second pick for a tech better than Apple: Buying Cirrus Logic for my Volatility Portfolio

Friday, October 11, gave us another preview of tech stocks that would move up more than Apple (AAPL) as that stock itself rallies on reports that iPhone 11 sales are running so strong that Apple has asked supplier to up production by 10%. Apple shares gained 2.66% on Friday. My first pick of a tech […]

Buying Skyworks in my Volatility Portfolio as a better play on Apple than Apple

On Friday, October 4, Japan's Nikkei Asian Review reported that Apple (AAPL) has told suppliers to increase production of their products that go into the new iPhone 11 line by as much as 10% to meet stronger than expected sales. A 10% increase would add 7 million to 8 million units to Apple's initial sales forecast […]

Step #3 Adding more risk hedges in my Special Report on getting ready for the next Big One

As I wrote in my August 26 post "Risk and uncertainty soared on Friday--and not for the reasons you might first think" I think that Friday's retaliatory tariffs from China and then the Trump administration's retaliation to the retaliation--plus rhetoric from President Donald Trump that asked if former good friend Xi Jinping was as big […]
