Bear Market Investor Tips 2023

There’s a way to become a profitable investor during a bear market, Jeff Weber of JJJ Investing explains in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.

Big Picture: First, Weber said investors need to realize that bear markets happen and are a natural part of an investing cycle.

Diversification: While diversification might be a safe thing to do, Weber said this only works if you are picking sectors that do well during a bear market.

Go Dog: The Dogs of the Dow investing strategy, which involves certain high dividend-paying stocks in a given year, is one option that Weber likes.

Final Thoughts: What’s the best-case scenario for the stock market in 2023? Weber explains in a new episode of the Early Bird podcast.

An activist meme stock investor has reportedly taken a stake in Alibaba Group Holdings (NYSE: BABA)

Details: According to The Wall Street Journal on Monday, investor Ryan Cohen built a stake in the Chinese technology giant. He reportedly wants Alibaba to boost its share-repurchase program.

Background: Cohen founded Chewy (NYSE: CHWY) and is the current chairman of GameStop (NYSE: GME). He is also known for being a prolific meme stock investor.

Stock Price: The past year hasn’t been kind to Alibaba. The stock is down 9% in the past 12 months and is struggling due to the larger economic challenges in China. Data released late Monday showed that fourth-quarter gross domestic product slowed.

Final Thoughts: While Cohen’s presence might make Alibaba seem like a good option for investors, China’s economy is still in a tough place. Alibaba hopes to have a rebound year in 2023.

Investors Shrug Off New Shiba Inu Development

In spite of a new technological development for the cryptocurrency Shiba Inu, the price dropped 2.57% on Monday.

Details: Over the weekend, the developers of Shiba Inu introduced Shibarium, Shiba Inu's layer 2 network that is aimed at making transactions on the blockchain quicker and more cost-efficient.

Final Thoughts: Investors didn’t seem to care, as Shiba Inu and other meme coins dropped on Monday. Meanwhile, mainstream crypto Bitcoin is finally up over $20,000.
