Mark Sebastian has prepared his list of some of the best stock trades today.
This grocer stock thrived during the last pandemic, and no matter what the Delta variant throws at us next, we're expecting another rally by year's end.
So whether we're staring down the barrel of another lockdown, or we officially leave COVID-19 behind us, this is a prime trade to make now.
A few other beaten-down, Redditor-controlled stocks aren't faring any better than GameStop.
But there's still money on the table here, so Chris recently found a "back door" trade for a fraction of the cost and risk of coming anywhere near these "radioactive" stocks and options… .
“Short interest” is a phrase you’ve likely heard a lot the past few days in regard to the GameStop drama.
Indeed, it’s information that gives you an extreme edge, and it’s one of Chris’ favorite indicators.
By using it, he’ll give you the names of 20 companies, any or all of which could be the next high-profit rocket ride….
Markets were volatile today as the Dow struggled to rally for the fourth day in a row, ultimately falling short.
But our experts are unfazed.
The Fed's latest push is giving this market real momentum, and it's fueling moneymaking opportunities left and right.
We've got 10 trading opportunities laid out for you below.
Chris Johnson and Andrew Keene unveiled these opportunities live today as they were tracking markets in real time.
Here's what our experts – Chris Johnson and Andrew Keene – thought about today's markets, and make sure to tune in to Markets Live tomorrow for even more actionable insight.
American retail sales had their biggest monthly jump ever, soaring 17.7% in May and adding some "oomph" to a rather tepid stock market rally.
The jump was mostly driven by thousands of retail stores and restaurants reopening after months under lockdown.
But the thing is, the future of retail and the entire economy is very uncertain right now. Even though, after the initial "coronavirus crash" in March, investors seemed to shrug off the pandemic and all its economic destructiveness in April and May.
Since then, states have reopened their economies and people have resumed their daily lives.
And now, we're seeing some troubling signs that COVID-19 infections are surging in places like Texas, Arizona, California, and Florida.
That's provoked a psychological 180 among investors.
They're suddenly very concerned with the pandemic's progress, so much so that they sent the big indexes tumbling by high single digits last week in the biggest losses since March.
That disconnect – the contrast between a piecemeal public approach toward virus containment measures and the markets' sudden concern over new infections after months of ignoring them – is in fact a "Reality Gap" that we can leverage for big profits this week.
Stocks rose Tuesday on the back of a record retail sales jump in May, positive trial results from a potential COVID-19 treatment, and more economic stimulus from the Fed.
The U.S. government reported all-time increase in retail sales of 17.7% in May.
Economists were expecting a 7.7% increase.
Meanwhile, trial results announced today showed an already widely-available drug called dexamethasone can help critically ill coronavirus patients.
Combine that with the Fed's announcement yesterday that it will begin buying individual corporate bonds, and you get another market rally.
The S&P 500 was up 1.6%, the Dow up 1.7%, and the Nasdaq closed 1.5% higher on the day.
Stocks had their best day since April as investors were optimistic that an effective coronavirus vaccine could soon be on the horizon.
U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell also made some long-term bullish predictions for the U.S. economy, saying the Fed will print as much money as it needs in attempts to solve any short-term problems.
The Dow closed up, 3.8%. The S&P 500 gained 3.1%. And the Nasdaq was up 2.4%.
Another 2.98 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits over the past week (versus the 2.7 million expected).
Now, over 36.5 million Americans find themselves without work.
That sent the Dow down about 1.5% to start the day.
But then the market rebounded mid-day and closed about 1.5% higher – led by the financials and energy sectors.
Here's what our experts – Chris Johnson and Shah Gilani – saw at the beginning and end of the trading day.
Between the pandemic, shutdowns, and the market volatility it all caused, investors have been pouring money into stable income producing investments like REITs.

Investors who use this opportunity to load up on these shares could be looking at massive gains over the next several years.
This includes some retail REITs that are being overlooked by the market right now.
