24/7 Trade of the Day

Trade of the Day: iPath VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX)

U.S. stocks have just sort of ambled sideways, but volatility has really crashed in a big way, with the S&P 500 Volatility Index (VIX) down 33.3%. More 

Trade of the Day: Harris Corp. (HRS)

With the major stock indices, including the S&P 500, improving to bullish readings, taking additional bullish positions is warranted. More 

Trade of the Day: Comcast (CMCSA)

There are no marquee companies announcing numbers on Friday, but there could be a surprise earnings warning or two. More 

Trade of the Day: HollyFrontier Corp. (HFC)

We like a bearish position on HollyFrontier because the company is relatively weak fundamentally and the stock recently broke support. More

Trade of the Day: CVR Refining LP (CVRR)

Trade of the Day: MBIA Inc. (MBI)

Trade of the Day: Altria (MO)

It's a reprehensible business, but addictive products do tend to be reliably profitable. Plus, MO is heavily oversold and tends to do well in late March and April historically. More
