The S&P 500 just closed out its highest-performing August in 30 years, and each of the market indexes is setting new records as we head into the most volatile month of the year.
And like I always say, volatility creates opportunity, if you know what to do with it...
So as we start a period of high volatility - that typically picks up after Labor Day - I'm looking at not one but TWO stocks that are practically guaranteed to break out over the next few weeks.
I'll give you a spoiler on our second trade: Etsy Inc. (NASDAQ: ETSY). This stock has been on a roll since we first took a look at it back in March, delivering over 700% gains on a single options trade. Now we're revisiting the rising e-commerce star, as well as a promising dividend trade...
I've been getting a lot of requests from my Fast Profits readers for a dividend play - a breed of stock that doesn't typically come through for short-term traders. Today, I'm giving you an exception to that rule - a REIT that's cashing in on the skyrocketing real estate market, with a specialty in one of the hottest investing trends of the decade.
