* http://www.stockwatchweekly.com – Stock Markets News at Your Finger Tips
It has been a rough week for investors with stock markets suffering from some turbulence.
So what is causing these movements? Economic indicators have been coming in this week, and at this point the news has been mixed. For example, personal spending and personal income are up, but consumer confidence is down.
Investors simply don’t know what to make of this mixed data. Markets could suffer some more swings in the near future, but we are still confident that the economy is in good shape. Add in what should be a great holiday season and markets should trend upwards.
And that means that any dips in markets now present a great opportunity to pick up stocks on the cheap. So what are some stocks we recommend adding to your portfolio?
First up is LiveDeal, an online deal platform that is quickly emerging as a leader in the mobile local search industry. The company’s revenues have been surging, and users are quickly signing up to enjoy savings on their awesome platform.
You don’t have to take our word for it either, just log onto their website, LiveDeal.com and test it out yourself.
We are also huge fans of Google. If you are looking for a stable blue chip, Google should definitely be at the top of your list. The company’s Android smart phones continue to gain market share, revenues are growing, and profit markets remain high.
We are also bullish on Walmart and believe that the company will enjoy a great holiday season. Walmart has been expanding its online sales and finding other ways to grow.
Wondering what stocks you should avoid? Stock Watch Weekly was one of the few news sites to warn investors about Alibaba’s initial public offering. Alibaba is a great company, but it is overpriced right now and we advise investors to stay away. So far, Alibaba’s stocks have struggled just to hold ground.
That’s all for this week! Make sure you check out LiveDeal, Google, and Walmart, and add them to your portfolio now before you miss out on all the growth!
