Even a low-confidence stock can rally sharply in certain circumstances. For example, a

It’s tough to argue that American Superconductor’s (NASDAQ:AMSC) recent supercharged rally was anything but the product of a meme-like wave of speculative frenzy. AMSC stock didn’t rally on game-changing news. Rather, as InvestorPlace’s David Moadel pointed out recently, chances are that it was statements from Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) CEO Elon Musk regarding the U.S.’s future electric
Recently released macro economic data is indicating that the United States economy is heading for a “soft landing.” Specifically, according to the Department of Labor’s  Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) for July, “2.3%  of nonfarm payroll workers quit their jobs” last month, versus the high of 35 during the “Great Resignation.”   The “soft-landing”

The race to “net-zero” is getting a lot of press these days. Governments around the world are making pledges to have a net-zero world by 2050. Aside from the environmental impact, it’s expected to be big business. According to Oxford Economics, an advisory group, this is a $10.3 trillion opportunity. Hydrogen will play a significant
Archer Aviation (NYSE:ACHR) is a speculative aviation stock that holds a $1.78 billion market cap, ranking 70th in the Aerospace & Defense sector.
