Last week the Anti-Miner ETFs won.

In the ongoing saga of bullish vs. bearish miner and Jr. miner plays the clear winner was the anti-miner ETFs.  That would be the Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bear 3x Shares ETF (DUST) and Direxion Daily Junior Gold Miners Index Bear 3X Shares ETF (JDST) killing the miners in huge gains.

IBM - Big Logo

IBM has been tossed into the wind.  Could it comeback?

International Business Machines (IBM) could become the largest part of my portfolio if the stock can get some legs. What I love about this century old tech company is that everyone on Wall Street has concluded they are dead money. Recall Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco Systems (CSCO) had this fate up until earlier this year. For "Value Investors" (if there is such a thing anymore) IBM is the ideal candidate. It's P/E is at 10. Wow.

Why Buy Disney Shares?

Darth Vader - Hoth

Two words. STAR WARS.

After banking coin this week in Amazon Inc (AMZN) its time to move on.  I did not expect the stock to move that fast and I would rather not lose my weekly profits. That's why I'm turning my focus to Walt Disney Co (DIS).

Goldfinger - Gold Overdose James Bond

The miners have been killed and the reverse miner ETF have profited.

Gold and silver miner stocks have been crushed in the past 3 months. Sure you could try and play the bounce or find the low but it has proven costly. So what has done well while these stocks continue to zero?  That would be the bearish miner ETFs that jump for joy when the miners stock tank.  Cue the  Direxion Daily Gold Miners Bear 3x Shares ETF (DUST) and Direxion Daily Junior Gold Miners Index Bear 3X Shares ETF (JDST).
