Time To Buy Russia? RSX, RSXJ, ERUS

Yes, Russia has a litany of negatives against it — from stagflation and recession, to open conflict with neighboring countries, economic sanctions, ratings agency downgrades, a sharply declining currency, and a megalomaniacal leader.
So you might be wary. But Russian market exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are among the best performers year to date. They’re up 20% — and 40% from lows in December. These kinds of returns show the value of thinking outside the box as an investor, and going against the crowd.
But it’s still not too late to buy Russia.(more)

1-year chart of Warner (NYSE: TWX)
Minus the gaps higher and lower last summer, TWX has been on a steady trend higher from its April low. Twice over that time the stock has hit that same resistance at $87.50 (red) and pulled back down significantly both times. The stock seems to be on its way back up there, and if TWX can finally break through that $87.50 resistance the stock should be headed higher. A close above that resistance would also constitute a new 52-week high.

The Tale of the Tape: TWX has a 52-week resistance at $87.50. The possible long position on the stock would be on a breakout above that level with a stop placed under it.

Internet Stocks & Natural Gas

I’ve really liked the Internet Index, as you guys know, and these stocks continue to rock n roll. But now I want to turn our attention more specifically to the Social Media space. I think these are the next ones to rip. We briefly discussed the major US averages which I continue to like. I said in the video that the target for the Dow Jones Transportation Index was up near 4760, I meant 9760 obviously. I apologize for that. Finally we discuss Natural Gas as well. I think the risk/reward here very much favors the bulls. I went over all the reasons today with Frances.

Realty Income (NYSE: O) The Only Income Stock I’d Own ‘Forever’

Realty Income (NYSE: O) reported fourth-quarter earnings last week, missing analyst funds from operations (FFO) estimates by a penny.
Revenues came in at $248 million, actually beating analyst estimates of $230 million by a pretty wide margin.
And you know what? I could really care less what Realty Income did last quarter. Realty Income’s quarterly numbers don’t matter to me. At all. And I say this as a long-term holder of the stock.  (more)

Gold Still in a Bear Market, But Don’t Lose Hope

We talked with the Gold and Oil Guy today, Chris Vermeulen. He says that Gold is still in a bear market, like it has been for the past three years. There’s an opportunity to pick up a quick profit when it rebounds from its current plunge, but don’t be fooled. It’s all setting up very nicely for the ultimate bull market that’s getting closer. Same with the much maligned Toronto Venture Exchange (TSX:V), which is at record lows due to its composition of miners and resource companies. Chris believes that when it comes back, it will come back very big, so consider the ETF. Chris is very bearish on Oil and doesn’t see it for quite some time, so don’t chase it lower. Believe the technicals, not your heart. Chris also runs an automated trading system that can trade for you on autopilot.
