  • George Soros Bets Big on Key Energy Services

    Hungarian-American fund manager George Soros (Trades, Portfolio) established the prestigious Quantum Fund, one of the top-performing funds in the world over its 26-year history. Soros invests in companies with the theory that prices of equities and fixed-income securities depend on the actions of traders, who usually act out on highly emotional reactions. Investors can find good opportunities by studying the market value of assets. The fund manager also focuses on the theory of “reflexivity,” which is based on the premise that investor biases can affect market transactions.

  • GNC: Be Greedy When Others Are Fearful?

    Sometimes its good to follow Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s advice and “Be greedy when others are fearful.” In the case of GNC Holdings Inc. (NYSE:GNC), I am not so sure. With earnings set to be released later this month, GNC has already had a horrific year with its stock down 23% since the beginning of 2017.


    The company’s roots date back to 1935 when David Shakarian open a health food store in downtown Pittsburgh. As legend has it, he only sold $35 worth of products that first day. Fast forward 80 years and the company generates north of $7 million a day. That is what intrigues me the most. The numbers look pretty solid.
