My Top and Bottom Stocks as Geopolitical Tensions Rise

by | Aug 2, 2022 | Market Updates

The broader indexes slipped lower as tensions rise ahead of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

Relations have been tense between China and Taiwan in recent years, and Beijing warned Pelosi against visiting the self-governed island.

In earnings season news, both BP p.l.c. (NYSE: BP) and Devon Energy Corp. (NYSE: DVN) beat on earnings per share and revenue estimates, and raised their dividend payouts.

Meanwhile, traders await more reports from companies like Starbucks Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX), PayPal Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: PYPL) and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD).

A lot of eyes are on AMD as tech stocks look to be slipping.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll reveal what’s driving consumer and tech stocks… the biggest earnings of the week… why resistance from May is crucial right now… an update on the Fed’s data and what to expect later this week… which stocks and sectors to avoid, and which ones are set up for upside gains… plus the top stocks I’m watching right now.

P.S. This New Indicator Is Causing a Big Stir

It has nothing to do with option flow or insider buying, and it’s not a new trade alert service… Instead, it’s a brand-new indicator he’s been working on for years that he’s never shared before.

He thinks it could be a major asset for folks looking to survive — and even thrive — in 2022 and beyond.

And Lance just went LIVE to reveal all the details behind this incredible indicator…
