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.

But post-spinoff, Yahoo will not be valueless. Here's why even now, as investors question Yahoo's future, Yahoo stock is still a buy...

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.

Now, TV pundits have taken to the airwaves suggesting that an agreement would flood the market with Iranian oil.

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...
