Should I Sell My Bitcoin After the Big Price Rise?

The question "Should I sell my Bitcoin?" probably entered the minds of more than one investor in the digital currency in recent days.

These "Boring" Stocks Are Perfect for the Market's Next Exciting Trillion-Dollar Ride

The markets, at least in the last few weeks of 2016, were defined by money pouring into the stock market from the sidelines, boosting stocks by more than $1 trillion since November.

But Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald has often said that the "real" profits start once the Dow gets above 20,000. So we're expecting the action will get even more intense – and perhaps more volatile.

You see, over the next few days and weeks, the nearly 53 million people who hold some $4.4 trillion in their 401(k)s will be taking a hard look at their 2017 allocations. With the Dow inches away from 20,000, you can bet they'll start to chase the performance that stocks offer.

So, as he often does, FOX Business' Stuart Varney invited Keith onto "Varney & Co." to talk about what stocks he likes to get in position to profit from the rally. He thinks investors should own these "boring" shares in January... Watch the Video.

Don't Sell Apple Stock on Those iPhone Production Cut Reports

It's never a good idea to sell Apple stock based on a few negative headlines, and this week was a case in point.

The Nikkei Asian Review reported this week that Apple is cutting iPhone 7 production by 10%. Other news outlets jumped on the story, immediately raising concerns about the health of Apple's biggest business.
