As the old adage goes “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime“. With that in mind, I wanted to make this article a bit different.
Rather than just giving you stock research as I normally do and then warning ‘‘do your own research!!” In this article I will give guidance as to how to perform solid due-diligence on an investment opportunity, things to look for and things to be wary of. …
Earnings season is fully upon us, with many companies releasing their reports, and some big names have shown bumper results:
Hello all! I hope you’ve had a great week. I’ve not put out any stock research this week for two main reasons:
A few things have been at play to cause the market to both go up, and down.
This week’s roundup is later than usual, as I have so much to share with you this time. You have not one, but 2 stock researches, both of which have gone up %15 since I mentioned them last week, along with the usual summary of the most talked about and buzzing stocks (there’s a bonus graph!).
Another reason this edition has taken longer is because in the background, I am developing an interface for the tool which allow you to see the results of the top mentioned stocks in real time, along with host of other data. …
Last week saw some recovery for the hard hit tech and growth stocks as investors became slightly more comfortable with inflation forecasts, meaning US bond yields tapered off, which raised stock prices (they essentially have an inverse relationship, as one rises, the other drops). In addition, the $1.9 trillion stimulus bill was completed by the US govt.
For some, reduced stock prices provided a buying opportunity, or at least an opportunity to average down the cost of some of the positions.
I don’t expect us to be fully out of the woods yet in terms or recovery, with monday market…
For some of you, it’s okay to look at your portfolio again, as the $1.9 trillion stimulus package I wrote about a few ago has been announced; prompting some recovery in the beaten up growth & tech stocks.
For those that have been following my last few posts, you will notice some of the researched stocks are already making some strong gains, with CVS (+5.9%) and Phillips 66 (+7.1%) up since time of writing.
Now this doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods yet, US 10 year treasury bonds go on auction this week, low demand for them (due to…
The market sell-off on growth stocks and bonds continues, and most likely will continue till the end of the week. To many, especially new traders, this seems like a full blown market crash.
Well, it’s not… a market crash needs a catalyst. Think back to every single crash, whether it was the dot com bubble, the housing bubble in 08, and even the flash crash on black Monday in 87' they all had a catalyst, if not many.
But bonds prices are crashing!
I appreciate that bond yield outlooks have shifted which are causing sell-offs, but holistically, that’s because of…
I have created a Machine Learning algorithm that regularly scans the most popular trading subreddits, logging the stocks and tickers mentioned in due-diligence or discussion-styled posts.
In recent times, with the volatility seen in stocks such as GME or AMC based on reddit hype, financial institutions are increasingly scouring Reddit and other social media sites to help guide investment strategy and stock discovery.
In this post I will show what the algorithm identified as the most talked about stocks over the last week, and share my thoughts on one of the stocks that has been hyped.
Instead of simply tracking…
Hello, I’m Ali from Bricklane’s Data team.
Previously, I wrote about how Bricklane uses technology to predict rental income, a value that is a critical part of how we choose which residential properties to invest in.
The article which explained how we automated a comparison valuation method to quickly predict rental incomes and scale up our Property team’s efficiency.
With that development, our analysts went from being able to review 5–8 candidates a day, to hundreds. The team could now review many property adverts quickly. However over time they found a human was still needed to verify/tune the final result…
