The AI economy is changing quickly. So quickly in fact, that investors are having a hard time deciphering which Ai stocks are fascinating and which may be fads? The answer is likely to come from how companies can answer the “so what?” or maybe a better question, “now what?”, as it relates to AI.
The skies haven’t exactly been clear for the aviation world. Casting our gaze back, we recall the catastrophic impact of the pandemic, a time when the sector came to an abrupt halt, and carriers had to grapple with long spells of contracted operations.

When it comes to long term investment, it’s important to consider the business fundamentals. I would only hold high quality blue-chip and growth stocks in my portfolio. However, markets provide some attractive opportunities to make quick money in speculative stocks. As an active investor, it makes sense to grab these opportunities to boost portfolio returns.
Inflation has been a recurring theme of the economy, but it’s gotten extra hot in recent years.

One of the few ways to beat rising oil prices is to buy an electric vehicle. With the future looking electric, governments are trying their best to achieve their energy goals by 2030. While it may seem ambitious to many, high demand for EVs continues across the world. Investing in EV stocks right now means
The 2022 bear market saw oil stocks shining due to rising oil prices spurred by inflation and geopolitical events. However, 2023 has seen oil prices halve from their 2022 highs, impacting oil stocks negatively. While the best oil stocks have faced volatility, their modest declines showcase their enduring stability compared to trendier energy investments. Crude
Hydrogen stocks could have an explosive future. For one, according to analysts at HSBC, “We estimate $8 billion in federal stimulus could be unlocked over the next three years (2024-26) to support the U.S. hydrogen industry.” Two, the global hydrogen market could be worth $410.6 billion by 2030 from $242.7 billion in 2023, according to
In early September, I chose Nio (NYSE:NIO) stock as my top electric vehicle (EV) stock pick. Now, however, I’m having second thoughts. There’s no need to panic-sell your Nio shares, if you have any. However, it’s not a great time to add to a share position or start a new one. As we’ll see in a
The broader market indexes would have you believe we’re in the midst of a steady, long-term recovery. But those of us trading individual stocks, especially more speculative penny and growth names, know the truth. This market is still quite choppy.

Apparently, electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN) is expanding its business operations into a new area — again. The MULN stock bulls might celebrate this, but consider the big picture. All in all, the risk-to-reward balance still doesn’t favor Mullen Automotive and its investors. I’ll admit, there may be a news item or two
The transition toward electric vehicles has begun rapidly, and several investors have a positive outlook for EV stocks. While countries across the globe are rapidly working on incentives to increase EV adoption and achieve their target of zero carbon emission, in reality, a very small percentage of EVs are on the road.

Psychedelic stocks are on the rise. Despite the stigma surrounding psychedelics for personal use, controlled medical experiments indicate their usefulness for treating a variety of conditions. One great benefit about psychedelic stocks is their early growth stage. Although this implies added risk, it offers greater potential upside. The difficulty lies buying the right psychedelic stocks.
We’re all too familiar with this month’s catchphrase – “higher for longer.” The Fed’s promise to keep rates up through (potentially) 2026 spooked investors, and markets reacted accordingly. The S&P 500 fell by almost 5% since the announcement, but more pain could be ahead. Higher rates pose a risk to stocks on two primary tenets.
In general, investor focus is on stocks listed on the main exchanges. This makes sense considering the liquidity on these exchanges and a sea of stocks to research and invest in.

Back in the dot-com boom of 1999, Qualcomm (QCOM), the wireless communication trailblazer powering the internet, became the poster boy of the “internet boom.” Shares of Qualcomm then soared 2,659% … in less than a year.

Student loan repayments resume on Oct. 1 after a three-year hiatus due to Covid-19. The repayments on the $1.6 trillion in student loan debt are bound to affect retail spending and, in turn, retail stocks. The question economists are trying to answer is how much of an effect payment resumption will have on curbing consumer
Warren Buffett is truly the greatest investor of our lifetime. There is no one that even comes close to the 3,700,000% returns he generated between 1965 and 2022. That’s a return of almost 20% a year or twice that of the S&P 500 index. It’s why investors watch his every move. What stocks does he buy? Which ones
