Part of my process for uncovering new stocks involves screening with a computer, where I narrow the S&P 1500 to two dozen candidates based on factors like growth, profitability, or price. I then investigate each company to see what stands out. One such candidate appeared on two of my screens simultaneously last week, and that only happens a couple times a quarter. The stock is Celestica Inc. (CLS), notes Adam Johnson, editor of Bullseye Brief.
We’ve seen plenty of split tapes in our day. But this one is about as divergent as we can remember. Meanwhile, Fabrinet (FN) is off to a solid start since our initial recommendation, and now it’s set up a decent-looking, three-week shelf, observes Mike Cintolo, editor of Cabot Top Ten Trader.
Inflation cooled for the second straight month in May, the US labor market seems back to pre-pandemic levels, and the economy is expanding at a low but steady pace. Therefore, the Fed is holding back on interest rate cuts. Probably the right move. Keep the ammo dry for when it is really needed. Meanwhile, I like ASML Holding NV (ASML), writes Carl Delfeld, editor of Cabot Explorer.
John Divine is assistant managing editor of investing at US News & World Report, while his colleague Patrick Duffy is senior real estate economist there.

In less than 24 hours, Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) WWDC event went from the latest meme to the core reason Apple is set to reclaim its spot atop US big tech giants. While consumers are still waiting to hear how Artificial Intelligence (AI) will meaningfully impact their experience, analysts are ecstatic about its business potential, observes Tom Bruni, head of market research at The Daily Rip by Stocktwits.
American Financial Group Inc. (AFG) is a holding company based in Ohio and founded in 1959. But its insurance roots go back to 1872. It pays steadily growing quarterly dividends and also rewards investors with supplemental payouts, advises Tim Plaehn, editor of Monthly Dividend Multiplier.
It's not a bad thing for America, Americans, or the American stock market that the largest companies in the country are going up in price. The best players are scoring a lot of points. That's perfectly normal. In fact, if you go back and study every bull market over the past 100 years, you'll notice that technology is a leader in almost every single one of them, writes JC Parets, founder of AllStarCharts.com.
At the start of the year, history reminded investors that good years tend to follow great years. In addition, every election year since WWII that started with a January gain posted a positive full-year return averaging 15.6%. These axioms have held true so far and imply a positive second half, advises Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA Research.
Not long ago, brick-and-mortar businesses dominated the global economy. However, the invention of the microprocessor in the 1970s, followed by the internet and World Wide Web in the 1980s, set the stage for two groundbreaking technological paradigms: The microcosm and telecosm. Among the pioneers in capitalizing on the potential of digital transformation is Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (MGIC), an Israeli-based company, writes George Gilder, editor of Gilder’s Moonshots.
The S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Index both hit record highs yesterday, but equities are retreating this morning. Tomorrow brings key inflation and interest rate news, so traders are likely squaring up positions ahead of those developments. Most other markets are flat, including precious metals and Treasuries, while the dollar is up a bit.

Nvidia and artificial intelligence are all the rage. Without the doubling in share prices of the Magnificent 7 (Amazon, Alphabet, Apple, Meta, Microsoft, Nvidia, and Tesla) in 2023, the 26.3% total returns of the S&P500 would have been just 9.9%. Can a market that is surging on just a handful of stocks keep hitting new highs? Why are investors willing to pay such lofty prices for these mega tech companies? Will any fall the way of Tesla, which is down almost -30% in 2024? (Many were the biggest losers in 2022.) How can investors profit from the promise of AI without getting swallowed up by the volatility?   

Nvidia carries a $3 trillion valuation, even though the company only earned $30 billion in 2023. Apple and Tesla were on fire last year, but are losing revenue year over year, which is why the Magnificent 7 are now the Fantastic 5. Learn how to profit, capture gains, lean into super performers and underweight laggards, and make sure that we have enough safety to smooth out the market gyrations in this invaluable session.

After six tough years in the small and mid-cap world, investors are finally taking notice of faster growth and low valuations in the sector. Last year, small and mid-cap valuations got below pandemic lows and very close to the 2008 financial crisis lows. Relative to large caps, small caps are about as cheap as they've ever been. In this presentation, Peter James Hodson will examine what caused the decline, the catalysts for improvement, and what lies ahead. He will also reveal and discuss some of his favourite US and Canadian small and mid-cap companies.
