    Quelstar is essentially a mirror image of Pixelworks. That is, it’s not just the bearish undertow we want to tap into here. It’s the failure of QBAK to follow-through on today’s effort to break above the 100-day moving average line with today’s early effort. The market dared the bulls to play their hand, and as it turns out, they were bluffing. The sheer scope of the reversal bar in the meantime today confirms the downtrend.

Typical primary family caregivers for adults in the United States may think somewhat harder about their finances, on average, than non-primary family caregivers, but they’re less likely to say they have personal financial advisors.

That’s one of the findings analysts at the Transamerica Institute have included in an in-depth new report on the well-being of family caregivers in the United States.

A team at the Los Angeles-based research center based the report on a survey of 3,183 non-professional family caregivers conducted earlier this year. The caregiver sample included people who were providing care for relatives who had difficulty caring for themselves, and parents or other non-professional family caregivers for children who had special needs.

best stocks to buy

The GEO Group (GEO) and Corrections Corporation of America (NYSE:CXW) were obliterated in August after the Department of Justice decided that it will use the end of private prisons. Expectedly, this didn’t go down well with shareholders of private prison companies, and shares of The GEO Group and Corrections Corporation of America went into a tailspin.

Shares of private prison companies started to bounce shortly after the DOJ decision became news, but the damage was done. In my last piece on The GEO Group I said this about the sell-off:

As numerous sources have noted lately only ~11 percent of GEO Group’s business is affected by the decision to cut back and end the use of privately operated prisons.

The effect on GEO’s bottom line, therefore, is not going to be as big as Mr. Market presently prices into the stock. Further, there is just too much negativity attached to the GEO name at this point, which is why contrarian income investors may want to take a deeper look at the stock.

best stocks to buy: Foresight Energy LP(FELP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    The debt-to-equity ratio is very high at 18.59 and currently higher than the industry average, implying increased risk associated with the management of debt levels within the company. To add to this, FELP has a quick ratio of 0.56, this demonstrates the lack of ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.

    We rate FORESIGHT ENERGY LP as a Sell with a ratings score of E+. This is based on a variety of negative investment measures, which should drive this stock to significantly underperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company’s weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its generally high debt management risk, poor profit margins, generally disappointing historical performance in the stock itself, deteriorating net income and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

     The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC) is one of my favorite small-caps for medium- to long-term investors. Selling specialized equipment for turf management and other industries, Toro is a proven winner that has provided very consistent growth in sales and earnings over the years.

    It’s not the fastest growing small-cap business, but it pays a decent dividend and has a loyal customer base in the golf course and contractor markets.

    Toro is now offering sprinkler refit equipment for water-starved jurisdictions like California. This company’s share price performance has been exemplary.
