It’s about time SuffelStocks makes its notorious return. There is nothing better than a hapless college student analyzing the stock market with a passion for Political Science. So what’s changed? Without a doubt, the market has taken off since the summer. The DOW Jones Industrial Average reached 30,000 & the EV sector is doing well. I was apart of it all. Although I didn’t post any articles relating to these victories, I was a strong advocate on Stocktwits and Twitter. This time around, I’ll be here for good, and I’m holding myself accountable to this pledge. So let’s take the ride.

Pfizer Vaccine

The vaccine is here finally, and it’s time we let the coronavirus pack its bags and take the first flight out of the United States. That’s not possible. It will stay here forever, for good, but this time around, we have a weapon to fight against it. The Pfizer vaccine was FDA emergency approved on the whims of desperate measures that were necessary. So why is the stock down right now? Is it because there isn’t enough of the vaccine to go around right now? Is it because New York Politicians are killing small businesses even though they’ve promised to be more lenient once the vaccine comes? These are just some of the many questions we deserve to hear answers to;

Since last Friday, when the news broke of FDA approval, and this past Monday, when the first subject received inoculation, Pfizer’s stock has been on a downward trend for bullish investors. How can it be? I’d assume fundamentals are key to optimistic investing, but the stock price won’t do its bloody deed. The bears are in the mix and eager to attack and viciously eat away at any poor news from Pfizer’s vaccine progress.

So far today, Pfizer’s stock has experienced substantial bullish resiliency. As we approached the closing bell, investors in $PFE were eager for more gains from today’s bull run in hopes the trend would fare into the after hours. Tomorrow could be a tough day for Pfizer bulls since the sentiment is down roughly one and a half points.

Although there is still hope for Pfizer investors, Biden plans to take the vaccine soon and in a public manner for the entire social media world to watch and admire in glory. I won’t be watching.

It’s Looking Great for Moderna though

Moderna, another vaccine/weapon to fight against COVID-19, is bound for approval by the FDA no later than tomorrow. You have my word. (It was just FDA approved as we speak) So what’s better than one vaccine? Two, you may assume. (I can’t lie, I’m a tad conflicted when it comes to a choice between the two). The Pfizer vaccine comes in what, two doses? And the Moderna vaccine alters your RNA so that your immune system can assertively assume the COVID-19 cells are nothing but a heap of fruit flies. There is hope.

Pfizer’s stock wasn’t the only one to fall; Moderna also fared the same bearish behavior this past week. The $MRNA share price dropped enough to scare investors into selling and day traders into shorting. Oh, what a ride for these two; it sure has been wicked. Since today’s optimism from imperative FDA approval, $MRNA share prices are up & they are up big until they fell in the after-hours…. what a bummer.

The EV Sector is the ‘New’

The EV sector is the new hip-style for relatively new investors and those trying to make a few extra bucks. Why not hop on the train? After all, the future is protecting our precious environment at all costs. And with the new Biden and Harris administration, there’s a pledge set in stone to protect the environment by eliminating gasoline-hungry vehicles and factories that emit harmful pollution into our atmosphere.

So which are the most popular? Well, I guess I’ll share my secret sauce: $PLUG, $BLNK, $SOLO, $AYRO, $FCEL, and $CLSK have worked very well for me so far.

Each stock is relatively diverse and offers more than just hydrogen-fuel powered forklifts or interchangeable batteries.

Since the summer, almost every one of those stocks above is up more than 50%. How about that.

Invest!

If you happen to have an extra couple hundred dollars laying around in your sock drawer, now’s the time to put it to work.

I love spending my money, let’s not forget about that… but there are times when I sit down and think to myself, was it really worth it? Instead of spending $5 – $10 at a fast food restaurant, why not buy part of the fast food business instead. There’s also no need to spend an abundance of hard earned money on micro-transactions when you can invest in a business that will pay you dividends when making micro-transaction sales.

The entire investing process actually isn’t that hard. From the outside, sure, it may look like a bloodbath, however there’s also someone or something there to guide you. Don’t forget, resources are almost always available.

Here are some companies that I’ve chosen this week to invest in rather than letting my money rot in a savings account…

$CMCSA

I personally don’t use Comcast as a provider for my internet services or as a cable provider. The last time I remember using them as a cable provider, I was no older than 8, and recklessly buying Disney channel episodes on my fathers credit card.

Since I adopted the stock market as my main pastime, I’ve payed dear attention to $CMCSA

And so far, from what I’ve seen, is a company that’s grown consistently, synonymous to its stock price.

The asset column continues to grow, same with its cash on hand.

If we really fell into a recession in February, then from this chart, I’m confident $CMCSA is capable of persevering valiantly.

$KO

Every time you go into a store and purchase a Coca-Cola, or when you’re next to a vending machine stuffing $1.50 for a chilling Coca-Cola, remember you’re not only making Coca-Cola money, you’re also making the investors money.

Coca-Cola appeals to all (pop, soda, whatever…) drinkers. It’s friendly brand ensures healthy alternatives for those who desire them. That’s why I love Coca-Cola. A company like Coca-Cola sincerely cares about its consumers.

Coca-Cola continues to expand into new territories worldwide, selling over 1.8 billion bottles per day!

In the past five years, Coca-Cola’s stock price has gone up $8.79. The stock price, listed under $50 is friendly, helping new investors pick affordable businesses for an inevitable return.

Although Coca-Cola is down for the year, there’s no doubt in my mind an investment in Coca-Cola will pay off. There’s a 3.28% dividend yield, so you will be payed to own Coca-Cola shares, meanwhile the price of your stake in the business makes you money as well.

$VZ

With 5g on the brink of sending the world into turmoil, Verizon communications joins the rest of the Brave New World.

There’s no surprise Verizon will find a way to take advantage of a recession, along with a worldwide deadly virus sweeping across the world, and now a wave of cultivating protests.

If you need a new phone, faster wireless speeds, or new-and-improved tech savvy products, visit your local Verizon store.

I’ve been a fond customer of Verizon for as long as I’ve had my first iPhone. I invest in friendly businesses with superb customer care, such as Verizon!

Besides the impeccable customer relations rapport, Verizon’s financial statements look phenomenal. The quarterly ER can attest to my recent claim. You also cannot fathom the 4.24% dividend yield.

Below is $VZ road to recovery from March’s market crash.

$CNK

I read in the WSJ Cinemark Holdings, Inc. plans to survive the pandemic, even though theaters have been closed since March’s lockdown.

They’d recently reported their quarterly earnings, suffering a significant loss of revenue, however their guidance represents an optimistic agenda.

The stock’s down 10% when I purchased a few shares. If $CNK believes they can survive and conquer the theatric market, triumph over the others like $AMC, then I’m all in.

I read the company financials regardless, and I wasn’t disappointed. Cash on hand and the assets have grown. Even though revenues are down for the quarter, there’s still time for revenue to grow while on the path to recovery.

Movie theaters have been taken for granted. And since the United States is reopening piece by piece, it’s more than likely theaters will be loved like once before.

It’s easy to be bullish in a bullish market

I would be lying if I said that I’m dissatisfied with the recent results my new portfolio has shown. May has been awfully kind to me and the new investors. Especially those incorporating a technical and fundamental analysis in your investing strategy.

To know your opponents mindset when playing a game of chess, you’re able to dominate them at every move. And with my technical and fundamental strategic mojo, I’ve been able to learn something new every day, and profit from the asset of desired knowledge.

I first believe that it’s important to have your heroes guide you in life, even if their presence is lacked. I like to carry an investment mindset like Warren Buffet and Bill Ackman, I also really like Michael Burry.

If you choose to be yourself, that’s how you can do it. Be authentic, don’t think of yourself as ordinary. The chip on the shoulder is there for a reason.

The future for security investors will always be an optimistic one. If there’s no sense of optimism when investing, why are we investing in the first place?

The current bull market is built on the oppression of pessimism, and fueled by the power of optimistic faith.

$STOR

Store Capital is an REIT – Real Estate Investment Trust, they were founded in 2011. Since then, their asset column’s continued to grow, shown in the balance sheet and the income statement. I found there’s a dividend return from investing in $STOR of 6.73%.

$STOR was a good buy on Friday May 29, 2020. Today, June 1, $STOR was up 7.55% leading up to today’s close.

$ZNGA

Zynga’s been one of the leading app store game developers of the decade. I figure the rest of 2020 and the entire future ahead for $ZNGA will be bright. There will always be games to be played on the app stores!

$ZNGA was up over 10% last Friday! And today, they’re up 5.57% in trading hours and 1.04% in the after hours.
