What's that you say, looking for a few investing ideas while searching the internets?  As we head into May Mastery likes Walt Disney Company (DIS), Shake Shack Inc(SHAK), Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM) and 3D Systems Corp (DDD). I love it when a plan comes together.

3D Printing Yoda Star Wars

3D Printing is only good for printing Star Wars crap. Wrong. That is why you fail.

Remember when 3D printing was going to change the world we lived in? The companies who created the 3D printers and sold them to the masses were going to make billions. Leaders like Stratasys Ltd (SSYS), 3D Systems (DDD), Organovo Holdings Inc (ONVO), and Autodesk Inc (ADSK). What happended? Wall Street lost patience, they delivered some bad quarters and the stocks were killed. Hello opportunity.

What's a Covered Call?

The covered call is a strategy where an investor writes a call option contract (sells an option) while at the same time owning an equivalent number of shares of the underlying stock.If this stock is purchased simultaneously with writing the call contract, the strategy is commonly referred to as a buy-write.

While you may have heard that trading options is risky business, covered calls are actually a very conservative strategy, and most brokerages even allow retirement IRA accounts to write covered calls.

Hannibal - A-Team Big Pic

It was a Hannibal type week with massive gains that all came together perfectly.

Mastery aside, I love it when a plan comes together.  Oustanding gains with even more to enjoy in the Ultra Financials (UYG), ProShares Ultra Basic Materials (UYM), and others.  We rewind the best stock picks of the week and how to play this rally.  However, we have to take note about why Stocks Could Tank next year (or Sooner).

Mastery favorite 3D Systems has backed down since last month, time to buy?

After reaching over $44 a share last week 3D Systems Corporation (DDD) has fell 12% to close today at $38.27.  No real news has been published about 3D since July when the company reported a stellar conference call and hit a new 52-week high.

Some of the popular stocks we follow fought back from the bottom with mixed results.

Mastery identified some stocks fighting to move up since hitting 12 month lows last week including Netflix (NFLX), Las Vegas Sands (LVS), Znga (ZNGA) and more.  We also found a few stocks worth checking out including 3D Systems (DDD) and the VXX.  We relive the first week of trading in August 2012.
