Genuine Parts: #PowerStocks Series Pick Of The Week (May 2024)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) stocks have recaptured the attention of many, especially in recent days.

1 of the largest stocks in the AI space, Meta Platforms (META), had plunged 15% earlier due to a weak revenue forecast.

Conversely, Alphabet’s (GOOGL) share price surged 11% after the company announced a share buyback and its first-ever dividend.

My heart cannot take the wild swings of these stocks, so I’m better off searching for explosive stocks that aren’t part of the Magnificent 7 to trade.

I’d shared 3 stocks to watch for the month of Apr. Would you like to find out how our #PowerStocks picks performed?

  1. Core & Main (CNM): Gain of ~5%
  2. Corteva (CTVA): No entry
  3. ConocoPhillips: No entry

#PowerStocks Series Results Apr 2024

You would be up by 5% if you’d followed the #PowerStocks picks shared in Apr.

This is on the back of a -3% the S&P 500 is experiencing in the same period.

If you’d followed The Art of Explosive Profits framework, you’d be up by about 5% too, beating the performance by the S&P 500.

Before sharing this week’s #PowerStocks pick, let’s review last week’s stock pick: ConocoPhillips (COP).

Review Of Last Week’s Pick Of The Week

I predicted that ConocoPhillips’ share price could continue to pull back to ~$126 before heading higher.

It had come to pass.

If you want to buy its shares for a swing trade now, please resist the urge.

ConocoPhillips will release its earnings results on 2 May, Thur.

Because earnings can affect its price wildly, and we don’t hold an edge, it’s advisable to keep this stock on your watchlist should a trading opportunity emerge next week.

Let’s analyze this week’s swing trading opportunity: Genuine Parts.
