  • Morningstar worried about Pimco corporate culture

    Pimco's corporate culture has suffered since the giant bond fund lost one of its top leaders, according to a report issued Tuesday.

    Morningstar, an influential investment research firm in Chicago, said that the resignation of CEO Mohamed El-Erian in January raised "a higher degree of uncertainty" about the world's largest bond manager.

    Morningstar did not change the ratings on any of Pimco's funds though. Morningstar rates funds via stars and they are MORE

  • Riding momentum isn't a sin

    This article was published in the December issue of Money magazine.

    By Paul R. La Monica

    Buy low and sell high may be the first rule of investing, but that doesn't mean you should invest only in poorly performing shares while ignoring stocks on a roll.

    If this year's market has taught you anything, it's that stocks that go up can keep climbing higher. In fact, history shows investing in the prior year's top-returning groups MORE

  • Tesla tries for new highs

    Tesla shares (TSLA) made a run at record highs early Friday in a burst of optimism following an upgrade by Deutsche Bank.

    But the stock struggled to hold the $130 level as the morning wore on, sparking a debate on StockTwits over how much the electric car maker is worth.

    The sky's the limit, say the bulls.

  • Travel stocks take off

    Investors caught a case of the travel bug Thursday after a blowout quarter from TripAdvisor lifted shares of other online travel companies.

    Shares of TripAdvisor (TRIP) surged 16% after the company said late Wednesday that earnings and revenue jumped in the second quarter, blowing past analysts' estimates.

    Some traders on StockTwits are hoping the trend will continue when Expedia reports quarterly results after the closing bell Thursday.

  • McDonald's: Investors not loving it

    You know times must be tough when McDonald's says consumers are struggling. But are diners really too stretched for the Dollar Menu, or is there something else going on?

    The fast food giant said Monday that global sales and earnings rose in the second quarter, though profits fell short of analysts' expectations.

    McDonald's warned that sales will be "relatively flat" in July and that results will be "challenged" in the second half MORE

  • Gold bugs regain some swagger

    After enduring a brutal sell-off this year, gold bugs appear to be making a stand.

    Gold prices rose 1% to $1,246.90 an ounce Tuesday after earlier making a run at $1,260.

    Of course, gold is still down more than 33% from the all-time highs near $1,900 in September 2011.

    But Tuesday's rebound raised hopes on StockTwits that the worst is over for the yellow metal.

  • Gold plunges to 2-1/2 year low post Bernanke

    Gold prices were hit hard in the global market rout that followed Ben Bernanke's latest press conference.

    Gold futures fell 6.4% to settle at $1,285.9 an ounce -- its lowest level since September 2010.

    The drop extended an ongoing sell-off in the precious metal as investors prepare for an end of the Federal Reserve's stimulus policies, which Bernanke said could begin later this year and culminate in 2014.

    Of course, he also said MORE

  • Why the Dow loves Tuesday

    The Dow Jones industrial average has posted gains every Tuesday for the past 20 weeks.

    That makes it the longest winning streak for any day of the week since 1900, according to Ryan Detrick, chief technical analyst at Schaeffer's Investment Research. The previous record was 13 (a three-way tie between Monday, Wednesday and Friday).

    The bulk of the Dow's (DJIA) gains this year were reached on Tuesdays. Detrick said the index has MORE

  • Michael Kors banks on jet-set comeback

    Michael Kors is cashing in on a rebound in the luxury business as the jet-set starts to splurge again.

    The high-end retailer reported earnings that blew past expectations early Wednesday as sales of bespoke handbags and flashy watches bounce back.

    Shares of Michael Kors (KORS) rose about 3% in afternoon trading, despite a broad-selloff on Wall Street.

    While the company offered cautious guidance, investors on StockTwits were still impressed with how strong sales MORE

  • Pepsi and Coke pass investors' taste test

    It's been a good week to be in the soda business.

    While the debate over whether Pepsi or Coke taste better will probably go on forever, there's no denying the beverage companies have fairly healthy balance sheets.

    PepsiCo and Coca-Cola both reported better-than-expected earnings this week, proving to investors that consumers still like their soda (or pop if you're from the Midwest) and snacks.

    Shares of PepsiCo (PEP) rallied 5% to a new MORE
