Stock Market 2023: Top stocks outperforming the SPY.

The SPY is currently up +9.44% entering the second month of the year.

Shares of the S&P 500 index are trading at $416.78 at the time of this publication.

Last year, the index came down more than -10% bringing many companies down -50% to more than -80% on the year.

Today, stocks seem to be doing much better than experts and analysts anticipated.

Short sellers are currently down $81 billion this year-to-date.

Despite coming from a bear market, and all signs signaling an upcoming recession, early investors in some stocks are already killing it.

Here are 5 stocks currently outperforming the market already this year.

  1. Biora Therapeutics (NASDAQ:BIOR) +73.62%
  2. AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) +54.71%
  3. AMC Preferred Equity (NYSE:APE) +135.83%

#1. Biora Therapeutics (BIOR) Stock

Stock Market 2023: Top stocks outperforming the SPY.

Biora Therapeutics (NASDAQ:BIOR), formerly known as Progenity (PROG) stock was up more than +182% in the first week of the new year.

Today, BIOR stock is up more than +73% this year.

The stock surged from $2 per share and peaked around $7.36 last in only the second week of the new year.

BIOR is extremely shorted, we’re talking about the company being one of the most shorted stocks in the market at the moment.

Ortex is reporting the company to have a whopping 243.95% short interest.

Why did BIOR stock surge so much this year already?

Biora Therapeutics is on track to move into clinic with its lead targeted therapeutics program.

If approved, it will be massive for the company and for shareholders alike.

#2. AMC Entertainment (AMC) Stock

Stock Market 2023: Top stocks outperforming the SPY.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) stock continues to be one of the biggest ‘meme stocks’ even after its massive debut in 2021 when shares rose from $2.50 to $72 later that year.

The stock, at the publication of this article, is trading at $6.08, the same share price it was two years ago before gaining serious traction.

AMC Entertainment continues to improve its fundamentals and remains the #1 leader in the movie theatre industry.

While online streaming has grown to become quite popular, especially during the pandemic, experts are beginning to weigh in on AMC’s side in 2023.

CNBC stated, “Netflix has backtracked on its previous policies, including by introducing an ad-supported subscription option, leading many to wonder whether the company should rethink its resistance to the traditional Hollywood movie release model as it looks for new ways to grow revenue.

Even Amazon associates who asked not to be identified, per Bloomberg News, are stating the company plans to invest $1 billion per year in the movie theatre industry.

The world’s largest online retailer aims to make between 12 and 15 movies annually that will get a theatrical release.

“While a $1 billion annual investment for film development is on the lower end of what major Hollywood studios spend each year, it’s a positive sign for the movie theater business, which has struggled in the wake of the pandemic”, said CNBC.

#3. AMC Preferred Equity (APE)

AMC Preferred Equity (NYSE:APE) is currently up +135.83% this year-to-date.

The equity made its debut in August of 2022 as a dividend for AMC shareholders.

AMC Entertainment has been able to capitalize on the equity by using funds to pay off debt and raise capital for the company.

Shares have plummeted since its inception; however, we’re seeing APE shares outperform the market too.

Plans to merge APE shares with AMC common stock will soon be up for shareholders to vote on.

#4. Peloton (PTON) Stock

Peloton Interactive, Inc. (NASDAQ:PTON) is an American exercise equipment and media company based in New York City.

The company’s products are stationary bicycles, treadmills, indoor rowers equipped with Internet-connected touch screens that stream live and on-demand fitness classes through a subscription service.

Company shares are up +109.11% year-to-date.

Peloton recently brought Leslie Berland, Twitter’s former marketing head, as its next chief marketing officer, per Bloomberg news reports.

She previously helped lead American Express for 10 years.

Peloton is trying to shift the tides after a rough 2022, when its stock dropped more than 75%.

The company in November posted wider losses than analysts expected for its first fiscal quarter.

Berland said in an announcement that she is “thrilled” to join the company at this “unique moment in its transformation journey.”

#5. Tesla Inc. (TSLA) Stock

Stock Market 2023: Top stocks outperforming the SPY.

Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) had one of its worst years yet in 2022.

However, the company stock is outperforming the market today already gaining +74.16% in gains this year-to-date.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk sold 22 million shares of the company last year cashing in approximately $3.6 billion earlier in December according to this SEC filing.

After the massive selloff, Elon said during a Twitter space call that he will not sell any Tesla shares for about two years.

Musk said he sees a ‘serious’ recession in 2023 and is preparing for a worst-case scenario.

And although experts are saying a recession is likely to strike the U.S. economy during the first quarter of 2023, the company stock seems to be performing quite well today.

Honorable mentions

#6. Hycroft Mining Holding (HYMC) Stock

Shares of Hycroft Mining (NASDAQ:HYMC) rose 25% earlier this year when the company announced it had discovered more gold and silver than it had anticipated.

Majority of the company is owned by AMC Entertainment.

22% of the company to be exact.

When the movie theatre chain acquired the mining company, headquartered in Nevada, shareholders followed.

Hycroft was able to raise an incredible $195 million in just two weeks after the acquisition.

Today, company shares are up nearly +10.31% year-to-date.

#7. GameStop Corp. (GME) Stock

GameStop Corp. (NYSE:GME) shares are currently up +31.98% year-to-date.

GME stock continues to be a retail investors favorite despite its popularity coming down since the ‘meme stock’ frenzy of 2021.

Today, shareholders are registering their shares through DRS to prevent short sellers from attacking the company stock.

According to GameStop, approximately 30% of GME’s float is registered with the Direct Registration System (DRS).

This equates to 71.3 million retail shares.

How much of GME’s float is owned by retail investors?

Nearly 70% of the float is owned by individual shareholders according to Vickers Stock Research.

While DRS certainly prevents the company from being shorted, it’s only one piece of the puzzle for a GameStop short squeeze.

Shareholders will need to create massive buying pressure next.

Stocks Are Trading Sideways: Is Now Time to Buy?

Market News: Stocks are trading sideways, should you buy?
Market News: Stocks are trading sideways, should you buy?

Stocks are trading sideways, indicating there is indecision in the market.

Despite its macro downtrend this year, the S&P 500 (SPY stock) is retesting its $400 levels after coming down significantly to $350.

As the market sees some bounce, we’re also experiencing major barcoding, or sideways trading.

Market makers are capitalizing on supply and demand zones along with support and resistance levels.

And while day traders are also capitalizing on these swings, it’s retail investors who are stuck in the middle.

Is now the time to buy stocks?

Let’s discuss it below.

Will SPY Break Through?

Spy Stock Chart - Franknez.com.
SPY Stock Chart – Franknez.com.

The SPY is currently in a downtrend channel.

Breaking above the $400 level could mean a strong breakout for the market.

Rejection on the channel’s trendline will result in further market decline where SPY may touch $330.

Buying the market now will play a big role in the momentum needed to break the market’s downtrend.

Our weekly MACD shows us buyers are coming in while our TTM indicator shows us decaying selling momentum, for now.

Market makers and big whales still have the final say of course.

A break above the downtrend signals a great buying opportunity.

Rejection at $400 levels will signify more downtrend for the market lies ahead.

At this point, retail investors may hold off from buying until price hit the next support trendline.

Retail Investors Have Big Opportunity in the Market Right Now

Stocks and Crypto to buy in a bear market.
Stocks and Crypto to Buy in a Bear Market | Opportunity in the market right now.

That’s right, even in today’s bear market, retail investors have big opportunity right now.

If you’re a new investor or entered the market during the bull run, chances are your portfolio is down significantly.

But don’t let your first bear market shake you off because there are numerous opportunities out there that have the potential to yield big returns.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ve more than likely capitalized on opportunities such as AMC, HYMC, Shiba Inu Coin, Terra Classic, and Bitcoin during properly and fortunately timed moments.

So, what’s new?

In this article, I’m going to go over the opportunities I see that lie ahead for retail investors.

None of the information on my blog is financial advice but rather speculative content based on current information and trends in the market.

And with that being said, let’s get started.

Not Invested in The Markets Yet?

If you or someone you know are not invested in the markets yet, the two articles below are going to walk you through, step-by-step on how to buy stocks for the very first time and how to buy cryptocurrency for the very first time, too.

Much information on how to invest in the markets is outdated so I wanted to create easy guides for beginners.

You can read them here to get started:

Remember, one of the greatest wealth you can share with someone else is that of knowledge.

Opportunities in the Stock Market Today

opportunities in the stock market today
Opportunities in the stock market today.

During a bear market share prices tend to tumble, hence why many long-term investor’s portfolios tend to lose value.

And although we can’t entirely time the bottom, we know that at some point the stock market is at a massive fire sale.

Value investors such as you and I can pick up shares from our favorite companies at these low prices before the market reverses trend.

Economists, analysts, and entrepreneurs alike predict there is still room for another 10%-15% drop in the markets.

But for the record, these are just predictions after all.

The point here is for value investors to capitalize on this falling trend by purchasing low and holding during the next bull market.

Whether you choose to capitalize on opportunities presented in a bull market or not will ultimately be up to you.

However, capitalizing during a bull market will require value investors to buy during a bear market, not during the bull market.

After being involved in the retail community for almost three years now, there are stocks and crypto that just stand out as having big potential during the next bull run and I’m going to discuss them below.

Stocks Worth Buying During a Bear Market

None of the information provided below is financial advice, but rather speculative in nature based on market trends and current information at the time of publication.

AMC Entertainment Stock (AMC)

You’ve probably heard all the ruckus on AMC and ‘meme stocks’.

It’s true, the stock jumped from $5 per share to an all-time high of $72 per share.

AMC Entertainment stock is currently trading below $6 again due to this bear market.

What makes this stock such an interesting value investment is that it has a huge community made up of millions of people who plan to take its current price up again.

Plus, the company has beat earnings every quarter since 2021.

Investing in the largest movie theater chain in the world could prove to pay out big during the next bull market.

SPY Stock (SPY)

I’ve talked about SPY stock numerous times on my blog.

It’s even made the list of best divided stocks to buy for passive income.

SPY is the S&P 500 index fund that tracks the top 500 performing companies in the U.S and has been a favorite amongst value investors for a long time.

Warren Buffett himself says he’s moving 90% of his wealth to this specific stock when he departs us.

Just this thought should speak for itself.

SPY has a great track record for its increased value over time.

Vanguard Real Estate REIT (VNQ)

I believe every value investor should have at least one great performing REIT, or Real Estate Investment Trust.

VNQ is Vanguard’s commercial real estate investment trust with a great track record since the recession of 2008.

The REIT is also on the list of the best dividend stocks to buy for passive income.

While the real estate market is set to retrace some of its gains, keeping an eye on this stock may provide retail investors with big opportunity during the next bull market.

GameStop Stock (GME)

What GameStop is doing with their NFT marketplace is genius and not a lot of people know about it.

Wonder why, *ahem, mainstream media*.

The video game company is making it available for people around the world to own actual digital items inside games through the use of blockchain technology.

The opportunity this technology will bring to entrepreneurs and flippers alike in the future is massive.

Investing in GameStop early on could have massive potential as our economy shifts towards the digital/metaverse economy.

Amazon Stock (AMZN)

Amazon is now affordable for just about any value investor to buy shares from.

The company stock traded above $3K per share before its 20-for-1 stock split made it available for everyone to purchase.

AMZN is currently trading below $100 per share and it’s a steal whether you’re anticipating another 10%-15% market drop or not.

Tesla Stock (TSLA)

Despite what you might think of eccentric billionaire Elon Musk, you cannot deny what the entrepreneur has created is fascinating in its own respect.

Tesla stock has shown outstanding growth in the past even after stock splits.

We’ve seen this company’s stock reach massive popularity during the previous bull market.

In fact, it was right under AMC Entertainment stock as the most searched for stock on Google in 2021.

Meta Platforms Stock (META)

Most boomer investors, like mainstream media, don’t truly understand the potential of Meta.

While Zucks might currently get made fun of by Wall Street ego, there’s a huge opportunity investing in early technology, especially a technology that one day may change the world as we know it.

Today’s innovators will carry the baton, whether old power likes it or not.

Crypto to Buy During a Bear Market

Stocks to build wealth

The market is down which means there are a variety of stocks retail investors can buy to build wealth this decade.

The problem is identifying which stocks will create the team you need to ensure your investing success.

I’ve compiled a list of stocks along with a simple strategy that’s going to allow these stocks to compound over time so that when you’re ready, they start paying you passively.

By the end of this article, you will have the knowledge you need to begin building your very own wealth through stock investments this decade.

Let’s dive right into it.

Compounding starts with reinvesting

Which stocks to buy?
Which stocks to buy?

The list below is made up of cash dividend paying stocks, companies with enough cash at hand which allows them to pay cash dividends to its investors every quarter.

The key here is to ensure that you opt in to ‘reinvest’ these cash dividends back into the asset so that your number of shares automatically compound every quarter.

On some occasions, the default setting is set to ‘cash’ instead of ‘reinvest’, which means your broker account will receive the cash dividend as a form of payment and settle in your funds like a deposit.

When you’ve built a strong retirement portfolio and you’re ready to claim the fruit of your labor many years from now, then you’ll want to begin taking that big cash.

But in the meantime, we’re focusing on setting ourselves up for that chapter in our lives so make sure you opt in to ‘reinvest’ that cash dividend.

Over time, you will see your number of shares grow fractionally and then eventually turn into whole numbers.

This process will continue repeating as you continue to fund your cash dividend stock portfolio.

Which Stocks Can Take Care of You Forever?
