2 Tech Stocks to Buy on Weakness

It’s been a turbulent start to the year for Tech, with the Nasdaq 100 Index (QQQ) sliding more than 18% from its highs and the Nasdaq Composite down more than 20% from its highs. While some might attribute the correction to geopolitical instability, I believe the correction was long overdue regardless of the Russia/Ukraine news, with rising rates and frothy valuations creating the ingredients for a substantial correction in 2022. Fortunately, for investors that were patient and took some profits into Q4, the market is now beginning to get oversold, and some names are finally on the sale rack after this sharp correction. A couple of these names are mega-cap companies with a history of strong growth, with both Meta Platforms (FB) and Netflix (NFLX) trading at massive discounts to their historical earnings multiples.

Silver Likely to Keep Trending Higher in 2022

While the general markets have had a turbulent start to 2022, it's been a much better year for precious metals, which have flipped from massive underperformance to outperformance in 2022. This is evidenced by a 4% year-to-date return for gold (GLD) and silver (SLV) which translates to a more than 1500 basis point lead on the Nasdaq 100 (QQQ). Some investors might argue that this is merely temporary, and they may end up being correct. However, with key ratios appearing to be staging trend changes, this could be the year to own precious metals and high-quality miners.

Here's Why Silver Should Keep Climbing Higher in 2022

It's been a volatile start to the start for most asset classes, with the Nasdaq 100 Index (QQQ) down more than 10% year-to-date, and most growth stocks also remain deep in negative territory. However, among violent correction, precious metals have been giving up ground grudgingly, with gold (GLD) and silver (SLV) in positive territory year-to-date. This relative strength is a great sign because both metals tend to perform better when they are above their monthly moving averages and outperform the major market averages. Let's take a closer look below.

3 Gold Miners To Buy as Inflation Rage Higher

2021 was a year to forget for investors in the precious metals space, with the Gold Miners Index (GDX) down more than 10%, giving up a large portion of its 2020 gains. With inflation rising and growth decelerating, I believe Nomad Royalty (NSR), SSR Mining (SSRM), and Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM) should be bought for long-term gains.

2 Tech Stocks to Buy During the Market Correction

It’s been a volatile start to the year for the major market averages, and the Nasdaq 100 Index (QQQ) has been the weaker index, sliding more than 18% from its highs. Since its January low, the ETF has recovered nearly half of its gains, rallying 10% following an extremely oversold reading on January 24th. Paypal (PYPL) and AMD (AMD) are two top tech stocks that investors should look to buy on the pullback.

Here's Why Silver Should Outperform in 2022

Silver (SLV) is an outperformer to start 2022 with a 1% drop while the S&P 500 is down 7%. Silver could explode higher this year if the economy slows and the Fed is forced to abort its hiking cycle.

Here's Why You Should Buy the Dip in Silver

It's been a turbulent start to the year for the major market averages, with the Nasdaq-100 Index (QQQ) down nearly 10% from its highs and the S&P-500 (SPY) also in negative territory for the year. However, one asset that has held up quite well among the volatility is the price of silver (SLV), which is down just 2% year-to-date, massively outperforming most other assets/ETFs. This relative strength is a positive sign for the metal, as is the fact that last week's pullback has put a significant dent in bullish sentiment. Taylor Dart explains why it pays to stay bullish.

3 High-Quality Gold & Silver Miners Trading at Attractive Valuations

It's been a tough 18-month stretch for the Gold Miners Index (GDX), with the ETF sliding more than 30% from its highs. While some of this weakness is related to the gold (GLD) price, the other culprit is inflationary pressures, which have taken a bite out of margins for some miners. However, not all miners are created equal, and some have been thrown out with the bathwater. In this update, we'll look at three that make excellent buy-the-dip candidates: Agnico Eagle Mines (AEM), Wheaton Precious Metals (WPM), and Alamos Gold (AGI).

Silver Showing Relative Strength During Selloff

Less than 20 trading days into the year, silver is ranked in the top 10% of ETFs from a year-to-date performance standpoint and is outperforming QQQ by more than 1500 basis points. This is a clear character change from last year when silver underperformed QQQ by more than 4000 basis points. As the chart above shows, these periods of strength when silver is outperforming the S&P-500 are very positive, with silver performing its best when it's above its key moving averages relative to the S&P-500. Silver's average 6-month draw up after regaining its weekly moving average was 46% the last two times this occurred.

Silver Outperforming in a Tough Market

It's been a turbulent start to the holiday-shortened week for the major market averages, with the S&P-500 (SPY) down nearly 1.7% for the week and the Nasdaq-100 (QQQ) sliding more than 2%. However, one asset class that is not giving up any ground this week is silver (SLV), which is not only positive for the week but up nearly 2%. This outperformance vs. gold and the S&P-500 is a very positive sign and is what we often see at major bottoms for precious metals. Let's take a closer look below.
