The Dow is closing in on 23,000, but Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald is thinking bigger.
He's looking for three ingredients to make a "magic recipe" for a big end-of-year rally.
We're entering the final earnings season of the year, and early indications look good.
Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald joined FOX Business Network to tell us what he sees ahead.
Amid all the brouhaha in Washington over the failed healthcare bill and threats of nuclear war from North Korea, Trump's promised tax cuts may have to come later rather than sooner.
Apple unveiled its new iPhones on Tuesday, prompting the question: when will its market cap hit $1 trillion?
Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald joins Stuart Varney to let us know his prediction.
The Fed's "Easy Money" market has been a low-volatility, high-profit ride for the better part of a decade. That's over.
The biggest aerospace deal in history was announced on Monday.
United Technologies agreed to acquire Rockwell Collins for $23 billion.
A panelist on FOX Business Network's "Varney & Co." discounts retail stocks that have to compete with Amazon and Wal-Mart.
But for Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, that's not going far enough.
Trump's "growth" agenda is stalled in Washington, and Wall Street's biggest players are predicting a stock market correction.
Investors are getting nervous as volatility starts to show.
Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani predicted the Dow would hit 20,000, then 21,000, and then 22,000.
Those predictions have been spot on.
As North Korea steps up its capability for international nuclear weapons, U.S. President Donald Trump and the UN Security Council have responded.
Will these measures make a difference to a leader who "doesn't make decisions like the rest of us?"
Tesla's Model 3 may not be as inexpensive as previously advertised.
But Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald explains that the real value of Tesla stock is not in its vehicles.
A surge in Apple stock after a strong earnings report pushed the Dow to 22,000 on Wednesday.
Investors were encouraged by better-than-expected iPhone sales and net income.
Shah's made some pretty big market predictions, including big calls about the Dow.
In spite of a bull market, some analysts are negative on top tech stocks like Facebook and Amazon. Should investors be concerned, or is this just empty talk?
As Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani says, the big indexes are hitting "serial record highs" in a market where there are now fewer stocks than there are indexes that track them - some 4,000 stocks against more than 5,000 indexes.
Of course the "Big Three," the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and the Nasdaq, with their unprecedented strength, are the ones everyone's watching right now.
There's one important index, however, that's continually scraping record lows. The Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index - the VIX. The VIX measures volatility in short-term S&P 500 options but has come to be thought of by regular investors as a powerful broad-market "fear index."
It seems the market has no "fear" right now, as it braves new heights with essentially zero volatility. And that's got some investors concerned that any sensibility has gone right out the window, replaced by classic "irrational exuberance."
So FOX Business' Gerri Wilder turned to the guy that helped develop the VIX (that would be Shah, of course) to see whether the record lows on the once-roaring "fear gauge" are cause for concern.
Facebook released a stellar earnings report on Wednesday, beating expectations on earnings, revenue, and monthly users.
What's next for the social media giant?
According to Peter Schiff, corporate stock buybacks will eventually tank the stock market.
With the stock market hitting new all-time highs, some fear a correction might be due.
Money Morning Capital Wave Strategist Shah Gilani joins Stuart Varney on FOX Business Network to tell us where the market is heading.
Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald is at FreedomFest right now - the largest gathering of free minds to meet and celebrate great ideas and great thinkers.
You can meet him - and get his insight on the most impactful events affecting investors today and in the months ahead.
Ultra-wealthy activist investors like Carl Icahn and Nelson Peltz are (in)famous for spending millions - often billions - on huge chunks of stock in attempts to upend corporate boards.
It's a move Oliver Stone's legendary "two-bit pirate and greenmailer" character, Gordon Gekko, called "getting into a company at a 45-degree angle."
They aim to grab seats on the board and use that powerful influence to break up and kill companies, or fix what they see as costly waste, or to steer corporate governance in a different, potentially more profitable, direction.
Still, investors (maybe with Gordon Gekko foremost on their minds) can panic when they spot activist investors circling shareholder meetings. It causes them to unload stocks - and play right into the activists' hands.
What's more, as we first noted in 2015, these players are now setting their sights on old, established American companies - income stocks your grandparents owned - that aren't even close to failing, like General Electric Co.
Gerri Willis, of FOX Business Network's "Making Money," wanted to know what, if anything, investors have to be afraid of, especially now that it's come to light Trian Partners' Nelson Peltz is aggressively seeking a seat on the board of Procter & Gamble Co. PG is a widely owned, $227 billion, 180-year-old "dividend king" that's hiked its payout for more than 50 straight years.
She asked our Technical Trading Specialist, D.R. Barton, Jr., what Peltz and other activist investors might really be up to coming after these popular, stable stocks.
The Fed balance sheet shows nearly $4.5 trillion in assets - from government bonds to mortgage-backed securities - the Fed bought as a way to stimulate the economy after the 2008 financial crisis.
Now, the Fed is unwinding its balance sheet by selling these assets, and that could create volatility in the stock market.
