Hopes for Greater Internet Speed

Week of April 22, 2019

The Dow reached a 7-month high last Thursday and NASDAQ topped 8,000 on Wednesday as both indexes (and the S&P 500) are only a little over 1% below their all-time highs. We expect wave after wave of better-than-expected first-quarter announcements to propel quality stocks significantly higher in the upcoming weeks.

Hopes for Greater 5G Internet Speed Lift the Market Higher by Louis Navellier April 23, 2019 The Dow reached a 7-month high last Thursday and NASDAQ topped 8,000 on Wednesday as both indexes (and the S&P 500) are only a little over 1% below

their all-time highs, set last fall. The biggest news last week was that the Apple (AAPL) and Qualcomm (QCOM) settlement on Tuesday should help both companies move on and proceed to build great 5G products. There is no doubt that 5G, which brings… Read More

We’re Off to a Strong Start in April by Louis Navellier April 9, 2019 April is seasonally the third strongest month of the year, thanks in part to new pension contributions in conjunction with the April 15 tax deadline. The S&P 500 began April

with a 1.15% gain on Monday and a 2.06% gain for the first week of April. Our friends at Bespoke Investment Group pointed out that when the S&P 500 rises at least 1% on the first trading day in April, historically the S&P 500 has risen by an… Read More
