Stock Tips

Stock tips give you the scoop on the next potential hot stock play. The value of a stock tip depends when you received it. If you got hold of the stock tip at the beginning, it will still be worthwhile to purchase the shares since very few people know about this opportunity. If you received the stock tip late, the share price probably went up. At this point, it’s does not make sense to acquire the shares since most people know about it. Profiting from stock tips is about timing.

There are good and bad stock tips. Before acting on the hot tip, it’s best to verify if the stock tip story has merit or not. Once the appropriate research is done, you can then make the proper investment decision. Hot Stock tips come from different sources: Colleagues, friends, family and acquaintances

E-Trade buying Harrisdirect for $700M

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- E-Trade Financial Corp. shares rallied Monday after the company said it would buy brokerage Harrisdirect from BMO Financial Group for $700 million cash.

The move marks the latest in a consolidation among brokerage firms that saw Ameritrade set plans to buy TD Waterhouse in June.

"E-Trade is reacting to [its] failed bid for Ameritrade by acquiring an alternative target," Fox-Pitt Kelton analyst David Trone said in a note to clients Monday.

Trone said mergers in the industry may not be over, and suggested that Ameritrade may one day attempt to take over E-Trade.
