June 2020 - Money Morning - Only the News You Can Profit From

Should I Buy Facebook Stock Now?

Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) has been in the news this week as over 180 advertisers are boycotting the social media giant.

Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg triggered the exodus last week when he said his company won't monitor hate speech and violence on the platform.

The stock dropped 11% in the two trading days following dropouts from mega-cap companies like Verizon (NYSE: VZ), Unilever (NYSE: UN), Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO), and Starbucks (NYSE: SBUX).

Some analysts expect up to one third of Facebook's total advertisers will join the revolt.

So, what do you do if you own the stock? And is this correction a buying opportunity or time to steer clear?

During his Markets Live stream at 8:45 a.m. EDT this morning, Money Morning Technical Trading Specialist D.R. Barton, Jr., answered this exact question for his viewers...

A tipping point that could turn stocks over and send us to new lows...

Here's a High-Profit "Kicker" for Your Microsoft Stock

I've recommended Microsoft several times over the years, each time with more conviction as its Azure service solidifies its position alongside Amazon Web Services as one of two "kingpin" players in Cloud computing.

That hasn't changed, and it won't anytime soon.

But today, I'm recommending it for a reason that's much more immediate and tangible in our everyday lives.

See, in as soon as 90 days, "Mr. Softy" will hit markets with an upgrade to its signature Windows operation system.

That move is going to catalyze incredible profits from here – and, yes, that's really saying something, considering…

  • The four times we've already doubled our money on Microsoft.
  • The fact that MSFT shares are up more than 46% (against the NASDAQ's 42%) since the March bottom.

So, by all means, put Microsoft in the very bedrock of your portfolio. But I'm going to tell you about another holding I think will work with Microsoft to put you over the top.

In other words, own this, and do even better in the long run… Full Story

This Is Hands-Down the Most Extreme Profit Upside of 2020

I'll come right out and say it: I've always dreaded and hated grocery shopping. Even during the best of times, before "social distancing" and "quarantine" were a way of life, I just couldn't stand it; I avoided it whenever I could.

Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, and trips out – to mostly empty shelves – became a roll of the dice with my health… fuggetabouddit.

Looks like I'm in good company: Retail sales tanked more than 16% in April as the pandemic took hold. By May, they swung back and rebounded more than 17%, but even that was around 6% lower than May 2019.

Here's the thing, though… The massive, wholesale move to online shopping has led to forecasts of 18% growth in e-commerce.

When you think about it, that growth is no mystery. Except for filling up my tank (which I'm not doing often these days), I'm doing just about all my shopping online. Instacart, Amazon, eBay – name it, and I've probably bought there recently.

Hundreds of millions of other consumers have, too. It's created an extremely bullish setup for the entire e-commerce segment.

And I don't think that boom is over, not by a long shot. That means there's plenty of time left for "smart money" moves in this space… Full Story
