Wall Street

Why This Indicator Is a Bullish Sign for the S&P 500

Morgan Stanley recently issued an alert saying that going long on the S&P 500 Index presented the best buying opportunity in 20 years.

Today, I'm once again getting you out in front with a chart that shows you how the market has crossed another critical bullish threshold.

Very few people are talking about this yet. And that makes it a big opening for you...

Undervalued Ford Stock Is Our Pick of the Week

Ford stock is the Money Morning Pick of the Week.

One of America’s “Big Three” automakers, Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) stock hasn’t fared well over the past year; at one point the Ford stock price was down 30%.

But Ford is capable of more earnings growth than many of the analysts realize. And it’s because Ford once again is emphasizing innovation.

Amazon Stock Price Set to Soar After CEO's Latest Honor

The Amazon stock price is down in 2016, and shareholders were panicked about Amazon's rising operational costs and shipping costs from its Q4 2015 earnings report.

But despite the short-term negativity, CEO Jeff Bezos just made Barron's list of top CEOs for 2016.

And while Wall Street is ignoring this story, we believe that this has uncovered a major catalyst for growth that is going to reward long-term investors...

Oil

Here's What Has London's Wealthiest Oil Kingpins So Fired Up

Just one thing is clearly on the minds of every money kingpin in London… the current "breakout" in oil prices.

WTI is up 53.4% for the year, while Brent is up 34.5%. You might be wondering where this breakout is coming from, since oil supply hasn't changed much since December.

It won't be long before these players are going to make a lot of money on this, and we'll have our chance, too...

One reason stocks rallied last week was that the Federal Reserve once again refused to take an opportunity, when market conditions were relatively stable, to raise interest rates. That leaves only investors to worry about when it might actually decide to do its job.
