EMKR May Not Be A Buy Right Now

Is EMKR a stock you should think about buying?

The semiconductor stock EMCORE (EMKR) may look attractive to some traders. That’s especially true for those looking for low-priced speculative plays right now.

But savvy astro-traders should be a little bit more cautious about this stock.

The company designs and manufactures Indium Phosphide optical chips, components, subsystems, and systems for the broadband and specialty fiber optics market.

Its main customers are cable television and fiber-to-the-premise networks, satellite communications providers, and the defense and homeland security sectors.

EMKR Is A Favorite On Some Trading Forums

This is a surprisingly popular stock, at least among part-time traders looking for speculative technology plays.

And no wonder. AT $5 a share, EMCORE is currently trading at slightly below book value, It’s priced at a mere fraction of its price 10 years ago.

But speculators shouldn’t be too hasty in considering EMKR as a trading candidate. The trading volume and relative strength for this stock are both fairly mediocre. This suggests that it might not hold up well in a portfolio under stress, in spite of its longer-term trading record.

And there are astrological causes for caution, too.

During the coming weeks this stock will be have transiting Saturn square its First-Trade Sun, which is not particularly encouraging. We’ve also got transiting Chiron parallel First-Trade Saturn, which can potentially complicate things even more for this stock.

EMCORE (EMKR)

The First-Trade horoscope for EMCORE (EMKR) reveals some of the potential challenges for traders in this NASDAQ stock.

And there are other astro-trading factors worth considering as well.

Take a look at the chart pictured here. It shows the transiting planets at this week’s closing bell in relationship to the EMKR First-Trade horoscope.

This reveals some additional warning signs.

The sesquiquadrate from transiting Jupiter (1) to First-Trade Neptune (2) stimulates speculative activity. This obviously helps make this stock seem quite appealing. And with transiting Mars (3) conjoining First-Trade Pluto, it’s certainly possible that we’ll see some substantial trading action during the coming weeks.

But pay special attention to transiting Neptune (4) conjoining First-Trade Mercury at the First-Trade Midheaven. This is a potent reminder that things may not be quite as they seem with EMKR. The possibility of mis-judging this stock is very high.

In short, if you want to trade EMKR, be careful.

You would do well to wait on the sidelines a bit before adding a position to your portfolio.

2000-Dollar Course: Bonus Freebie

0505

Why give a 2000-dollar course away?

Basically the video says it all.

I’m giving away a complete 2000-dollar course in astro-trading for free because I want to attract the attention of the trading community.

Here’s The Problem

It has become increasingly clear to me that one of the biggest challenges for most traders is that they get in their own way.

They may know exactly what they should be doing in the markets. But for some reason they choose not to do it.

Instead they seem determined to do stuff that increases their risk.

It’s stuff that drains their trading capital.

It encourages psychologically perilous emotional states.

This is only possible because they fail to understand themselves sufficiently.

An Opportunity To “Know Thyself”

From my highly-biased perspective, there’s nothing quite as powerful as a natal horoscope when it comes to finding out about ourselves at a deeper level.

Your horoscope can open up insights and nuances that you simply can’t find any other . way. Getting a competent interpretation of your natal horoscope can truly be an eye-opening experience.

For many people, getting that kind of astrological insight comes from having a personal one-on-one session with a professional astrologer.

Whether the session takes place over the telephone, via Skype, or during a face-to-face meeting, it should be a highly interactive experience. You should expect plenty of opportunities for you ask in-depth questions.

Some astrologers charge less than others. But if you’re working with a really good professional you can expect to pay about $1500 for the consultation.

How To Find The Money In Your Horoscope Class

Our class in How To Find The Money In Your Horoscope is another way to connect with the self-understanding that every successful trader needs.

HTFM Question

It provides a combination of online resources, videos and audios, and live Q&A calls.

It can be enormously valuable for you in many, many ways.

But it’s obviously especially useful if you have financial concerns.

In other words, the class in How To Find The Money In Your Horoscope is perfect for traders.

But it’s not really a course about astro-trading itself.

The 2000-Dollar Course

Between The Eclipses

Right now we’re almost exactly halfway between the eclipses – last week’s big solar eclipse and next week’s lunar eclipse.

It’s an interesting time, one that’s packed with powerful potential.

As astro-traders, it’s important for us to remember that eclipses come with a great deal of regularity. In fact, it’s key for us to anticipate the next eclipse that’s coming up.

It’s why we’ve compiled a handy Eclipse List that’s worth keeping near your trading computer.

But the period between the eclipses can be very stressful.

It’s stress that can manifest itself in our personal lives. We can feel it in our work, in our relationships, and in our communities.

It can shake world events, producing overt hostilities and fresh confrontations.

It can impact the financial world. That’s why this is an important time to watch for actions by central banks and national treasuries.

The time between the eclipses can also move the markets in significant ways.

Our “Between The Eclipses” Webinar

That’s why we presented a special webinar yesterday on “The Markets Between The Eclipses”.

It was a unique opportunity to get valuable perspectives on this time of stress.

It also gave us an understanding of some of the unique benefits that come with the time between the eclipses as well.

If you missed joining us live, or if you want to review this information on the period between the eclipses, you can watch the entire presentation here:

By the way, the publication that’s mentioned in the webinar recording – “Wisdom and Warnings From A Solar Eclipse” – is available now. You can get it as an instant download from Harmonic Research Associates.

Report Helps Inform Events Between The Eclipses

As we discussed in the webinar, this brand-new e-book is an important tool. It’s useful for assessing the potential impact of the recent solar eclipse on a variety of markets around the world. It can also help with knowing ahead of time when to expect the biggest eclipse impacts.

They don’t all come at the time of the eclipse!

That’s why it’s so useful to have all the upcoming eclipse activations listed in one place. In the pages of this new eclipse report, you’ll find over 200 of them listed in chronological order, extending all the way until the end of October.

Warren Buffett Does Make Mistakes

That’s right – even Warren Buffett sometimes makes mistakes.

At least that’s the opinion of some contributing writers with USA TODAY, who wrote recently about the stocks that Warren Buffett currently holds in the Berkshire Hathaway portfolio.

They each picked one stock they advised against buying.

Warren Buffett’s Terrible Timing

And of course Warren Buffett does in fact make mistakes from time to time. Especially, as he confesses, in his market timing.

Warren Buffett

“I have been dead wrong,” he admitted in his 2008 letter to shareholders. “Even if prices should rise, moreover, the terrible timing of my purchase has cost Berkshire several billion dollars.”

Here’s what USA Today had to say about Warren Buffett in its recent article:

“Super-investor Warren Buffett has made plenty of investing mistakes. He’s also never been shy about talking about them; to the contrary, his must-read annual letter to shareholders will often spend more time pointing out his flubs than crowing about his successes. And since even the Oracle isn’t infallible, we asked three of our contributors to name a stock that’s in the Berkshire Hathaway Inc portfolio today that investors might not want to buy.”

The article goes on to quote Dan Caplinger, who questions the wisdom of buying Wal-Mart (NYSE-WMT). Caplinger points out that “Even with efforts to bulk up its online e-commerce abilities, Wal-Mart faces pressure from rivals that have no legacy store footprint to manage.”

For Brian Feroldi, Warren Buffett’s big mistake is American Express (NYSE-AXP). Feroldi notes that “the company’s brand name no longer commands the premium market position that it once did and intense competitive pressure is causing the company’s longtime customers to defect.”

And even though Warren Buffett has long been widely known as a huge fan of Coca-Cola, both the product and the stock (NYSE-KO), that’s exactly what Jason Hall calls into question. Hall reminds us that “consumer tastes are changing. Not only are the company’s flagship Coke and Diet Coke products losing popularity, but the entire segment is in decline, with volumes having fallen yearly for most of the past decade.”

You can connect with the entire USA Today article at: http://usat.ly/1pgK4tR.

But What’s Warren Buffett Doing Right?

While the writers cited in the USA Today article may have a point about the long-term viability of these Warren Buffett investments going forward, there’s no question about their success in the past.

Warren Buffett has had a spectacular track record in long-term investing, in spite of his mistakes along the way.

There’s a good lesson to be drawn from his performance.

Whether you’re a long-term investor like Buffett, or are looking for big short-term returns from the markets like our Gold-Plus Elite members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com, it’s important to remember that not every trade will be successful.

Even if you make mistakes and take some losses, you can come out ahead in the long run.

Profit From Warren’s Buffett’s Secrets

It’s also worth studying the strategies behind Warren Buffett’s stock picks, especially the astrological factors that go into his investments.

Warren Buffett Stock Picks

That’s the subject of my e-book What The Government Won’t Tell You About Warren Buffett’s Top 10 Stock Picks. It provides an in-depth analysis that can give you some solid perspectives for your own personal stock market strategies.

You may find it worth re-reading now, especially in the light of some the criticism Buffett has been getting.

LeadPages Innovation Out Of The Bag

LeadPages has done it again.

They’ve come up with another big breakthrough – and I can talk about it at last!

You see, I was sworn to secrecy about this five months ago.

But now, it’s official, so it’s okay to let the cat out of the bag.

So What’s LeadPages?

But first, a little bit of background information is probably in order.

You may have heard me mention LeadPages before.

If you’ve been trying to do business online (as an astrologer or otherwise), you’ve really been missing out if you haven’t connected with LeadPages already.

But if you’re familiar with LeadPages, then you already know this Minneapolis-based startup is known for their innovation.

That’s how LeadPages has gone from zero to 40,000 customers in just three years.

I’ve been one of those customers for about two years now.

Here’s The Secret Stuff

That’s where the secrecy comes in.

Last October, I was in the LeadPages office in Minneapolis.

LeadPages Conference Room

The secret conference room behind the glass wall at LeadPages headquarters in downtown Minneapolis.

I was ushered into a glass-walled conference room for a closed-door meeting with some key members of one of their product development teams.

Before they explained what they had been up to, they made me swear not to discuss it with anyone until they had officially announced it to the public.

I complied. And what they showed me then totally blew my mind.

It was the prototype of the new LeadPages drag-and-drop landing page builder they were working on.

It was truly stunning.

In fact, I was so excited when I got a look at it that I could hardly contain myself.

I’ve been pretty antsy during the five long months since then, just waiting for this new innovation to become available.

It was hard, but somehow I managed to keep my mouth shut all that time.

But Now I Can Talk About It

As of today, LeadPages just took another major leap forward, by launching their all-new drag-and-drop landing page builder.

Frankly, I couldn’t be more excited about it – it’s even better than the prototype I saw five months ago!

Up until now, LeadPages has always given you high-converting landing page templates that you can customize and use for your business, right out of the box.

You could always take one of LeadPages’ high-converting landing page templates, change the copy, swap out the images, and publish your new landing page online in less than 10 minutes.

Trust me when I say, this is a phenomenal service for business owners like us.

It’s gotten me out of a jam many, many times since I started subscribing to it.

And it just got even better.

As of today, LeadPages just launched the new drag-and-drop landing page builder that combines the power of their high-converting landing page templates with ultimate flexibility—and with 100% mobile responsiveness so your pages will look good on any device (without coding).

For the first time ever, you can now add, move and rearrange any elements on your landing pages for unprecedented flexibility.

Need to add a logo to your page? And re-size it?

No problem.

Want to add images of 10 different experts?

Go ahead and try it.

And that’s just the beginning.

I know I can’t wait to try out this new builder for for myself. I think you should too.

How Long Does A Solar Eclipse Last?

We’re just a week away from the next big solar eclipse.

It’s not just a key part of the 2016 astrology outlook.

Are you ready for the next big solar eclipse?

Are you ready for the next big solar eclipse?

There’s no doubt about it – eclipses move markets!

That’s what makes solar eclipses so important for astro-trading.

But many people underestimate the power and duration of eclipse effects.

That’s why our new monograph on Wisdom and Warnings at a Solar Eclipse includes an extensive list of eclipse activation dates.

It’s also why I put together this quick video:

The new eclipse report is scheduled for distribution on March 5th.
