In 2017, Rectify Mistakes & Get Rich

As most of my long-time followers know, personal and professional disasters marred the back half of 2014 and rendered my 2015 a total washout. It all served to prove that even successful stock analysts are human. Mercifully, 2016 was a year regained footing. With mistakes and relationships of the past (some of which were one and the same) firmly in the rear-view mirror, I enter 2017 refocused on the processes that fueled my successful career, early retirement, and rise to popularity on Seeking Alpha. This article will provide a review and preview for investors who plan on following my work [...]

Stock Market Update For Dec 19, 2016

If I recorded a video of everything I do in a typical day, you'd fall asleep watching it. Analyzing the market and finding new picks is like an Easter egg hunt. The hunt is exciting for the hunter, but watching the hunt can be very boring. However, collecting and opening eggs is always great fun. Here are some of the eggs from this week. Keep in mind, I am not officially endorsing these articles nor recommending the picks (nor will I respond to Q&A on them). I'm just sharing, in case you want to do something with them. Take it [...]

Mattersight: Profitability In Sight?

It's been a few months since we updated ourselves on Mattersight's (NASDAQ:MATR) progress. So, Pipeline Data dove into the financials and business trends to determine whether our risk/reward still looks good or not. We were pleased with the results. Our market assessment showed no appreciable change in the competitive environment. As for the market's health, we observed positive data points. The economy is stronger. Of equal importance, its largest customer is doing extremely well. Shares of UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) have been on fire. The company recently raised its earnings guidance. More business for UNH should translate into more business for [...]

Stock Market Update For December 7, 2016

As a reminder, if you want to profit from my investing method, you need to read my Investment Methodology. You don't get rich doing what everyone else does. The Methodology is my instruction manual. It describes the lessons, secrets, and rules that enabled me to retire a multi-millionaire at age 38 (back in 2008). The Methodology also answers many of the questions that people ask here. So, if you don't read it, why should I spend my time answering your questions? ;^) Besides, without reading it, you'll be flying blind and that can lead to heavy losses instead of big gains. SO, read [...]

QAD Up 150% — Time To Say Goodbye?

Last week, I published an Instablog featuring a set of the most attractive charts in my portfolio. Already, two of them have delivered 20% gains. The most notable of the two is QAD Software (NASDAQ:QADA). As one of the two 10% positions in my Official Portfolio (along with RDCM), its 150% rise has made it my largest official position. On Tuesday evening, the company validated this pick once again. They reported strong results and stated on the earnings call that the current quarter is off to a great start (thanks to increased customer spending since the U.S. elections). In Wednesday's market action, QADA's shares caught fire, rising [...]

Stock Market Yellow Alert… Again!

In late-July, I wrote an article entitled Are Stocks Too Pricey For The Risk? If you haven't read it, you should. A week later, I issued a Stock Market Yellow Alert. Three months later, the market was down 3% (a 12.6% annualized return). I lifted that Yellow Alert two weeks ago, just before the election. Since that time, the S&P has risen 4% (177% annualized). The move puts the SPY at $217.76, just 1.5% below my Risk/Reward ceiling. Because of this quick and aggressive move, I'm issuing another official Yellow Alert. For those who don't know about these, please visit my investing Methodology at PipelineDataLLC.com. [...]

Lifting The Yellow Alert

Hello from Australia 🙂 As many of you know, I'm in the land down under to compete in the Masters World Track & Field Championships. I won my first heat and compete in the semi-finals in two days. The break in the action afforded me the opportunity to look at the stock market today. Frankly, I don't like what I see. A lot of longs look ugly and a lot of shorts have fallen dramatically. My inclination is to sell the longs and cover the shorts. Yes, that means that I'll have even more cash on the sidelines... and there's [...]

Videocast for October 8, 2016

Hi... until the Masters Track & Field Championships (taking place in less than four weeks), I'll remain fairly quiet. However, I wanted to provide a short and educational video for you all. You can find the link below. FYI, one point I failed to make in the video pertains to Intermap's impact on my Official Portfolio's performance this year. In that regard (as you can see below), buying a very small amount of this Speculative pick saved us from taking a big loss in our portfolio. The area highlighted in yellow shows that Intermap has negatively impacted our portfolio performance by only -0.35%. In other words, [...]
