This Yahoo Stock Price Driver Will Replace Alibaba by 2016

By the end of the year, Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) will let go of its 15% stake in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA).

What as of late been the most significant Yahoo stock price driver will no longer factor into the day-to-day trading decisions of investors buying and selling Yahoo. This sounds dire.

An Easy Way to Play India's Explosive Growth

China, reinforced by its recent mega gas-purchase deals, has been turning to Russia for some time as an economic partner. Now, it seems, the only other billion-plus population country may be doing the same.

Rather than looking west, India is looking east, and contemplating its future as part of a Eurasian union.

The Fed

Use This Strategy to Profit Before the Markets Head South

For the last six months, I have been warning that economic growth is faltering. In November of last year, I predicted that the U.S. economy would experience a "growth scare" in 2015.

This week, we learned that the Atlanta Fed is tracking first quarter GDP growth at a mere 0.3% and that the Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee (FOMC) has significantly downgraded its growth forecast.

Bond yields have plunged and commodity prices have collapsed. Only stocks have failed to figure out that low growth is a recipe for coming disaster.

Beware of Pundits Playing the "Iran Oil Card"

It's getting to be crunch time in the negotiations between the West and Iran over Tehran's nuclear program.

Despite an ill-advised attempt by U.S. senators to scuttle the talks, it's clear the negotiations in Geneva will continue.

Combined with production surpluses in the United States and elsewhere, the "instant" prognosticators are pushing their Armageddon pricing scenario again, putting additional pressure on oil prices.

Meanwhile, those playing the new "Iranian card" are shorting oil even further.

It's just the latest example of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

It works like this…

Chicken Little of "The Sky is Falling Brokerage" hits the airwaves warning of a collapse in prices, only to earn huge off-camera profits based on what he just said.

Meanwhile, average investors are left holding the bag as share prices fall.

There's a big problem with all of this "instant analysis," and I'm going to show you what it is - and how you can resist the temptation to try to catch this "falling knife" altogether...

GoDaddy IPO Price Set Today – Will This Stock Be a Buy?

A GoDaddy IPO price range of $17 to $19 was set this morning (Thursday), as the company prepares to sell 22 million shares.

Investment Risk Redefined: The Free Trade

There's no such thing as a 100% risk-free investment. That said, you can make any investment risk "free" under the right conditions by using one of my favorite tactics: the free trade.

This strategy lets you do three things at once: capture profits of at least 100%, pay for your initial investment, and reduce the risk on your remaining position to almost nothing.
