Hot Stocks for Wednesday Trade Watchlist Portfolio Message Set Alert live bse live nse live Volume Todays L/H More × Santosh Meena, Head of Research at Swastika Investmart The Indian equity market witnessed a sharp profit-booking in Tuesday's trading session after a one-way vertical rally.

Peloton shares are on a painful ride that keeps getting worse. The stock plunged 24% on Thursday—wiping out billions in market value—amid reports that the beleaguered at-home fitness equipment company would temporarily halt production of its bikes and treadmills. The news, first reported by CNBC, came as Peloton was desperately looking to cut costs amid a “significant reduction” in consumer demand. With Peloton’s stock in freefall, the company’s response was swift: CEO and cofounder John Foley denied the report late on Thursday in a letter sent to employees. “The information the media has obtained is incomplete, out of context, and not reflective of Peloton’s strategy,” he wrote. The company also released preliminary quarterly earnings ahead of schedule—with a slight uptick in revenue from last quarter, which hit $1.1 billion. Peloton shares shot up on Friday, rising around 10% to $27 per share after Foley's note. Despite the gains, the stock still sits near 52-week … [Read more...] about Pandemic Darling No More: Peloton’s Dramatic Crash In 4 Charts
At the Motley Fool, we have a free service called Motley Fool CAPS. In CAPS, you pick the stocks you think will beat the S&P 500 Index (also known as "the market"). In my case, 57% of my stock picks in CAPS beat the market, which means that 43% of my stock picks fail to beat the market. In essence, I am wrong 43% of the time. That's a spectacular failure rate. If I did that in school, I would get an F on my report card. And yet in CAPS I am in the top 1% of stock pickers. So that's fascinating, right? How can I be wrong so often and still crush the market? The main reason is the miracle of compound returns. In a year, one of my stronger stock picks might double or triple. That's a gain of 100% or 200%. But over time, if a stock continues to outperform, the rewards escalate. It might go up 1,000% or 10,000% or 30,000%. And what happens is that your investment in this winner (if you don't sell along the way) becomes larger and larger on a dollar basis. image source: Getty … [Read more...] about You Can Buy a Lot of Bad Stocks and Still Get Rich
Jekyll and Hyde would be able to relate to Zoom Video Communications ( NASDAQ:ZM ) . The stock was a market darling in 2020, with a return of 396% for the year. But 2021 was a different story. Zoom stock declined about 45.5% for the year and is currently down 64.3% from its 52-week high. Which version of Zoom stock will we get in 2022? The future is far from certain. However, I have reason to believe that Zoom will be a breakout stock in 2022. Here's what investors need to know. Image source: Zoom Video Communications. Here's why Zoom stock is cheap Zoom's business was growing before the COVID-19 pandemic. Full-year revenue was up 118% year over year for the year ending in January of 2019 (Zoom's fiscal years run to the end of January rather than the end of December), and up 88% in the fiscal year that ended in January of 2020. All of this growth was before the pandemic. So I don't believe it's fair to just call Zoom a "pandemic stock" -- this label doesn't give it … [Read more...] about Here’s Why Zoom Could Be a Breakout Stock in 2022

The market is near all-time highs. Global debt levels are near all-time highs. Interest rates are near all-time lows. These are very good reasons why investors might want to diversify into investments that have historically been viewed as safe havens, like precious metals. There are different ways to do this, including buying a miner like Barrick Gold ( NYSE:GOLD ) or taking a bit of a different path and buying a streaming and royalty company like Royal Gold ( NASDAQ:RGLD ) . Here's a rundown on why one is probably a better option than the other. Start by choosing growth Barrick and Royal Gold share one thing in common that owning physical gold or an exchange-traded fund that invests in bullion doesn't offer -- growth. Simply put, the only upside potential for gold coins or bars is an increase in the price of gold. However, miners and streaming companies can invest in their businesses and expand. That's a key edge that makes them better long-term options for most … [Read more...] about Better Gold Stock: Barrick Gold or Royal Gold
