Magic 8 Ball

The Masters turn to a source more credible than our U.S. Congress for investment advice.

We are now trading in 2013.  Thanks to the uncertaintly of the U.S. Government we ask our collective reasoning device for help.  Cue the Magic 8-Ball for help.  With a few shakes we were able to determine it is right to buy shares of GameStop Corp (GME), NutriSystem Inc. (NTRI), Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (CMG), and Financial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLF).

 

'Super' the Movie - Crimson Bolt

Anti-establishment and some of the brightest financial minds on Twitter.  Here are their stock picks.

All credit goes to Eric Jackson at Forbes.com. This is Jacksons's list of his favorite Twitter contacts and their stock picks for 2013. 

 

Wall Street Bull

To start 2013 right Mastery is going with 4 established companies with impeccable brands.

To battle the impact of a Post Fiscal Cliff trading environment Mastery is going with four established companies.  The winners being Anheuser Busch (BUD), Walt Disney Co. (DIS), The Coca-Cola Co. (KO) and McDonald's Corp. (MCD).  You get what you pay for and now is the time to go with best in breed.

Get fat and make money at the same time. 

In 2013 Mastery wants to cash in on the best and overlooked Fast Food stocks.  America will continue to get fatter and spread its gluttony all over the planet.  That means its time to load up on McDonalds Corp (MCD), Yum! Brands Inc (YUM), and risk some on Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG).

These are the Stocks you are looking for

The Russel 2000 is set-up for a major move to the upside. Here are our 3 non-Sith picks.

The small-cap Russel 2000 index (IWM) has a very nice looking inverted head and shoulders pattern that just broke out of a tight base. If the trend continues, we like these 3 small caps: Nanosphere Inc (NSPH), Angie's List Inc (ANGI), and Thompson Creek Metals Company (TC). 

Bullish General Large Pic

Any upside in the major indexes could send these 4 stocks flying.

The S&P 500 and the Down Jones Ind. finished 0.6% higher today despite zero progess made avoiding the 'Fiscal Cliff'.  Four stocks did finish higher today and they are loaded with short interest.  Those names are Zillow Inc. (Z), RadioShack Corp. (RSH), J.C. Penny Company, Inc. (JCP) and wildcard candidate Pandora Media Inc. (P).  If the rally in equities continues the short sellers are going to have to switch course and send those four stocks higher.

The arguing continues and the deadline is approaching.  Mastery reaches for the ultimate weapon.

Unless you are part of the 1% or 2% of America that can afford to pony up $130K for single share of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A), your next choice would be the affordable Berkshire Hathaway "B shares".  We recommend picking up some Berkshire Hathaway Class B (BRK.B) shares for $87.16 a pop.

 

Mr. Burns - Evil

Mr. Burns explains the 'Fiscal Cliff' in terms we can all understand.

Bravo to 'The Simpsons' and their take on the 'Fiscal Cliff'.  An explanation by Mr. Burns is classy and actually -- makes total sense.
