Stock Market Discussion: Here’s What You Missed

Last week our nine investment experts held a round table discussion of what’s happening in the stock market - and what to expect. Here are some highlights.

In the middle of July, all nine Cabot analysts gathered to review the (very profitable) second quarter of 2017 and discuss their individual approaches to making money in the remainder of the year. Here were some of the highlights from that stock market discussion.

Mike Cintolo talked about how impressive the market’s strength has been lately and discussed his plans to add a couple of stocks that very day to the portfolio of Cabot Growth Investor. (Hint: one of them is a well-known enabler of online payments—a hot sector as Bitcoin fever takes hold.)

Our options expert Jacob Mintz (animated as usual), noted the heavy call-buying in a very well known food conglomerate whose stock had recently bottomed and suggested it could be a great buy in this neighborhood (either calls or the stock).


Chloe Lutts Jensen of Cabot Dividend Investor discussed the growing risk in utility stocks as rates rise and mentioned some attractive opportunities in high-yielding energy stocks.

Roy Ward of Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor, whose readers recently took a 276% profit in Oracle (ORCL) (way to go, Roy!) discussed the high valuation of the stock market, but noted that his method has still been able to find undervalued stocks that are attractive for patient investors.

Oracle (ORCL) has been one of the best performers in the stock market in the last year.

Crista Huff explained her strategy of taking profits when stocks rise to previous resistance levels and redeploying the profits into stocks selling at bargain valuations. Today she’s pounding the table for energy stocks, including the granddaddy of them all, in her Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor.

Tyler Laundon of Cabot Small-Cap Confidential, whose readers have taken numerous profits recently as the stock market has surged, discussed the fine points of investing in stocks that do secondary offerings—sometimes it’s good (if the money is earmarked for growth) but sometimes it’s a sign to sell.

Paul Goodwin, who has been riding hot Chinese stocks like TAL Education (TAL) to big gains, reviewed the case for further gains in Chinese stocks—and also explained why India, despite being a huge developing country, has so few good stocks for us to invest in.


Nancy Zambell, who reads over 200 investment advisories a month to find the best recommendations for Wall Street’s Best Investments and Wall Street’s Best Dividend Stocks, reviewed the sentiment of a wide swath of investors and discussed how relevant this intelligence can be to your own stock market timing efforts.

And me? I moderated the whole thing, making sure everyone had time to get their opinions in. I also pointed to a raft of bricks-and-mortar stocks that I wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole—and mentioned the recent breakout of Square (SQ), which is now nearing a 100% profit for my readers.


In short, it was a stimulating discussion, full of actionable investment ideas.
