Navellier & Associates - Watch What Central Bankers Do, Not Just What They Say

May 29, 2013
Louis Navellier opines this week about how political distractions can be good for stocks and looks at the actions of central bankers. The S&P 500 declined a little (-1.07%) last week as nervous investors misinterpreted central bankers’ words rather than watching their actions – i.e., their continued pump-priming to boost economic growth. I oftentimes view these occasional pullbacks as new buying opportunities, especially for some companies that aggressively buy back their existing shares. And now, after a brief Memorial Day pause, the market will likely continue rising, based mostly on improving second quarter sales and earnings trends.   Download Navellier's Full Commentary Here   Get Free Research Reports on Navellier & Associates [+] Read More

Navellier & Associates - Sell in May and Go Away?

April 30, 2013
Louis Navellier addresses the “sell in May and go away” idea and what he believes will continue to sustain the bull market. “The S&P 500 rose 1.74% last week. NASDAQ did even better (+2.28%) and the Russell 2000 rose 2.5%, virtually erasing the previous week’s losses. Since domestic smaller-cap stocks have an advantage as long as the dollar remains strong, I expect the Russell 2000 to continue to outperform the S&P 500. As May approaches, I feel there is no advantage in “selling in May and going away,” since you have an opportunity to score market-beating profits by focusing on stocks that surprise Wall Street with rising earnings. In addition, this bull market seems to have some strong “legs” to support it, namely the powerful impact of stock buybacks.”   [+] Read More

Navellier & Associates - Second Quarter Began with a Disappointing Jobs Report

April 12, 2013
Louis Navellier begins the second quarter by commenting on the latest jobs report and what it means for the stock market. “The unease in Korea and a disappointing jobs report on Friday delivered the biggest weekly loss of the year so far, but the decline wasn’t all that bad – a 1% drop in the S&P 500 and a slight (0.1%) drop in the Dow. However, many smaller stocks fared worse – with the Russell 2000 declining 3% last week and NASDAQ off nearly 2%. As I’ve been saying in recent weeks, the market is becoming more selective, so investors need to be more attentive to company-specific news and trends.” Download Navellier's Full Commentary Here Get Free Research Reports on Navellier & Associates [+] Read More

The Dow Finally Dips After 8 Straight All-time Closing Highs - Navellier

March 18, 2013
Louis Navellier takes a look at a few key economic indicators including inflation, retail sales, jobless claims and industrial production. "Last week, the S&P rose 0.6% for its 10th weekly gain in the first 11 weeks of 2013. The Dow Industrials ended a 10-day winning streak (the longest since November 1996), including eight straight all-time highs, and the S&P 500 peaked at just two points below its all&time high. Even more encouraging, the VIX (volatility index) remains extremely low, so the stock market’s rise has been relatively smooth. In addition, inflation fears may drive more investors out of bonds, lifting stocks further." Download Full Commmentary Here Get Free Research Reports about Navellier & Associates, Inc. [+] Read More

Merger Mania and Stock Buybacks Keep Fueling Market Gains - Navellier

February 20, 2013
Louis Navellier reviews the recent M&A and stock buyback activity and what’s fueling this uptick. "The S&P 500 rose for its seventh consecutive week, but by only 0.1%. The Dow came within 1% of its all-time high, and the S&P 500 traded within 3% of its all-time high, but each day’s closing in the S&P was remarkably flat - in a narrow range from 1517 on Monday to 1521 on Thursday. Maybe traders are trying to dope out the market’s long-term direction before mounting an assault on new highs."
