This “Rocky” Comeback Stock Is a Great Deal Right Now

Donald Trump's 140-character blasts were merely controversial before he won the election. But now, love him or hate him, @realDonaldTrump's social media "engagement" can seem downright earth-shaking sometimes, grabbing headlines, upending international relations, and knocking some of the world's savviest, most powerful CEOs on their heels.

Since November, Trump has singled out some 19 companies for condemnation or praise.

And as we've seen, when Trump puts a company front and center, favorably or otherwise, share prices tend to get moving. It's this effect that has investors most concerned, or, at times, excited.

Now, we've looked at ways you can profit by getting out in front (or out of the way) of Trump's tweets, but there's another way to get ahead here in a market dominated by the "national CEO":

Go with companies that are going to grow and reward their shareholder-partners no matter what anyone says or tweets about them.

That's exactly the kind of stock our Executive Editor Bill Patalon wants to tell you about right now.

Trump's not crazy about this firm, that's for sure, but it's one of Bill's favorites and has been for decades.

He loves it for lots of reasons, like its 100-year history of innovation and resilience in the face of trouble. It's been written off by pundits before, and each time it's come back with a vengeance to bury the doubters.

Well, now it's under pressure once again, but Bill recommends getting in position now for a chance to make a killing on its hard-charging comeback. Check out his special video recommendation...

Tom's Test Tells Us If This Retail "Bargain" Is the Real Deal

"Affordable luxury" giant Michael Kors Holdings Ltd. (KORS) disappointed its shareholders Tuesday morning when the company announced misses on sales and revenue then threw very cold water on its guidance heading into the spring season.

Not even a modest diluted EPS beat of $1.64 could save the famous "$300 bag" provider from tumbling 14% in a day and, in fact, leading the entire New York Stock Exchange in daily losses.

Now, on the same earnings call, corporate chiefs announced some bold plans for turning the company's fortunes around in 2017. Their vision included slashing discounts and reducing supply, which might hurt sales in the short term, but which executives feel will, long term, "build a better value" and restore their products' rapidly fading sheen of exclusivity.

Bargain stock buyers and financial pundits liked the taste of the proposed strong medicine enough to send the shares higher yesterday, calling the stock a great buy at Wednesday's prices.

CNBC Asia's "Capital Connection" asked our Options Trading Specialist Tom Gentile if there was something to the buzz, or if the shares were better left alone.

He gives us the scoop with KORS stock here, using his "Three Ms of Retail Risk" to measure if it's a true bargain buy today...
