In a moment I'm going to show you a chart for EOG Resources.

As I looked at the chart for this oil and natural gas development company, and positioned myself for a possible trade, an old song happened to come on the radio. It's a catchy tune that my friends and I used to "try" to dance along with.

Fast-forward to today, and as the song plays in my head, I'm almost moved to dance again by the profit pattern I'm seeing develop for us on this chart!

Biotech Investing for Beginners: Your 7-Step Guide

Biotech news

Biotech investing can be tricky. The industry is complicated, and the stocks are volatile.

But the profit payoff can be life-changing.

That's why we've created the "Biotech Investing for Beginners Guide" with Money Morning's Biotech Investing Specialist Ernie Tremblay.

Apple's most recent earnings were nothing short of spectacular, and the headlines reflected that:

... "Apple Beats Estimates on Soaring iPhone Sales" -The Street

... "Apple Beats Estimates with $10.2 Billion in Profit" - AppleInsider.com

high-yield stocks

The 141st running of the Kentucky Derby was not going to pass me by this year without a challenge...

I was hanging out with some financial friends last week when the question got popped along with a bottle of wine.

"Who do you like in the Derby?" I was asked.

I'd never really thought of it, although I enjoy the excitement of the race. But when I heard a few of my friends around the table talking about betting on the long shot, I had to open my mouth.

"You never bet the long shot," I said, knowing that in the business of options trading, nothing could be more clearly stated.

With that, I took a bold step that not only paid off handsomely for me, but can also pay off for my readers.

Indeed, this financial lesson learned from the Derby will be of greater long-term importance to you than remembering the name American Pharaoh...
