    Thrifty teens continue flocking to Five Below (NASDAQ: FIVE  ) . The deep discounter posted fiscal second-quarter results after Wednesday’s market close.


    Business Wire/Getty Images From an iconic auto parts retailer hoping to shift into reverse after a streak of negative quarters to the world’s most valuable consumer tech giant showing off its new gadgetry, here are some of the things that will help shape the week that lies ahead on Wall Street. Monday — Pep Rally The new trading week kicks off with Pep Boys (PBY) reporting quarterly results. The auto-parts retailer and provider of car maintenance and repair services has 800 locations across the country. This has historically been an all-weather niche for investors. When the economy’s smoking, drivers spruce up their rides. When the economy’s in the tank, drivers hold on to their cars longer, requiring more money invested in maintaining and repairing their vehicles. This doesn’t mean that investors should be expecting a strong report. Analysts see flattish earnings and sales growth. Making matters worse, Pep Boys has fallen short of Wall Street’s profit targets in each of the four previous quarters. The trend suggests that Pep Boys may earn less than the 17 cents a share that the pros are forecasting. Tuesday — The Big Apple We will finally get our first look at the iPhone 6 on Tuesday. Apple (AAPL) has scheduled a media event for Tuesday, and this is the time of year when the world’s most valuable consumer tech company refreshes its smartphone line. Everything is pointing to a larger device. Sources have been telling tech blogs that we’re also looking at a scratch-resistant screen and a chip-based transaction platform. We may get more than just a shiny new smartphone out of Apple. Some have suggested that Apple will finally make its big splash into wearable computing. Apple could also update some of its other product lines or shock the world in a good way by entering into a brand-new product category. Wednesday — Retailers on Parade A handful of retail chains will be updating the market with fresh quarterly reports. Wet Seal (WTSL), Five Below (F

  • [By WWW.DAILYFINANCE.COM] There were plenty of winners and losers this week on Wall Street, with a restaurant chain embracing more natural ingredients and an old website digging into your past to woo you back. Here’s a rundown of the week’s smartest moves and biggest blunders. YouTube — Winner It’s been two summers since Psy uploaded the official “Gangnam Style” video to Google’s (GOOG) YouTube. It blew up as a global single later in the year. This week, it surpassed 2 billion views on YouTube. It’s a notable achievement for the South Korean pop music star, but it’s also a big deal for YouTube. After all, the milestone shows how popular YouTube is as a video-sharing platform. Most folks may have tired of the video and the song ages ago, but clips live on forever in cyberspace. YouTube just validated itself again. MySpace — Loser Speaking of bringing pop stars to life, MySpace — yes, MySpace — turned heads this week by sending out old photos posted years ago to the emails of folks with dormant accounts. MySpace had its moment in the sun before giving way to Facebook (FB), but the social networking dinosaur now jointly owned by Specific Media and pop icon Justin Timberlake, is struggling to regain its relevance. Sending old pics to folks that have moved on may seem like a clever tactic given the popularity of Throwback Thursday, but it comes off desperate at best, and creepy at worst. Panera Bread (PNRA) — Winner Panera became the latest eatery to climb onto the organic food bandwagon this week. The chain of bakery cafes revised its food policy, moving to do rid its menu of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives by 2016. It’s a smart move for Panera. Growth at the former quick-service darling has been slowing lately, with analysts targeting top- and bottom-line growth in the mid-single digits. Anything it can do to beef up its profile with the growing number of consumers angling for natural foods will only help. Walmart (WMT) — Loser The world’s larg

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    Renewable oils manufacturer Solazyme (NASDAQ: SZYM  ) got walloped after announcing a new commercialization strategy that will result in drastically reduced production volumes from facilities in Clinton, Iowa and Moema, Brazil and less revenue in 2015 and beyond than originally expected. The company’s former commercialization strategy of selling massive volumes of commodity replacements relied on optimized, low-cost production and numerous customers. That stood in contrast to the strategy settled into by fellow industrial biotech Amyris (NASDAQ: AMRS  ) at the end of 2012, which relied on producing low volumes of high value products, seeding important long-term markets, driving costs down with new microbial production strains, and adopting an efficient corporate cost structure.

    There are plenty more demonstration flights — more than 1,500 actually — and investments to choose from. Some notable selections:

    In 2011 Alaska Air Group paid $16 per gallon for a biofuel made from used cooking oils to power 75 passenger flights. Also in 2011, Qantas signed a non-binding letter of intent with Solazyme to purchase 200 million-400 million liters of renewable jet fuel per year. In 2013 United Airlines committed to purchasing 15 million gallons of renewable diesel through 2016 from AltAir. In April British Airways partnered with Solena Fuels to produce 50,000 metric tons of renewable jet fuel per year from London’s garbage. The airline agreed to purchase about $510 million worth of fuel over an 11-year period. In June synthetic biology pioneer Amyris (NASDAQ: AMRS  ) and its partner Total SA gained ASTM approval for drop-in jet fuel containing up to 10% farnesene-based renewable fuel. The first international commercial flight took place the next month when Brazilian airline GOL flew a Boeing 737 from Florida to Brazil — a route that will now use the fuel regularly. Earlier this month, Boeing partnered with South African Airways to create renewable jet fuel from tobacco plants engineered for use as energy feedstocks.

    The demonstration flights and biofuels investments can also be easily characterized as marketing ploys. Why else would a company pay 2 times or 4 times market prices for the input that already represents the largest single expense (renewable jet and renewable diesel fuels can be cost-competitive with current market prices depending on production method)? Airlines were positioning themselves for a revised ASTM standard for jet fuel that included renewable fuels, which finally arrived earlier this summer. Giddy up for a flurry of deals and development!

    Amyris (AMRS), a renewable products company, provides various alternatives to a range of petroleum-sourced products for the specialty chemical and transportation fuel markets worldwide. This stock closed up 3.3% to $4.02 in Thursday’s trading session.

    Thursday’s Range: $3.86-$4.04

    52-Week Range: $2.17-$6.11

    Thursday’s Volume: 357,000

    Three-Month Average Volume: 202,839

    From a technical perspective, AMRS spiked higher here and broke out above some near-term overhead resistance at $3.97 with above-average volume. This stock has been uptrending for the last three months and change, with shares moving higher from its low of $2.75 to its recent high of $4.19. During that move, shares of AMRS have been making mostly higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. This spike higher on Thursday is now starting to push shares of AMRS within range of triggering a big breakout trade. That trade will hit if AMRS manages to take out Thursday’s intraday high of $4.04 and then once it clears more near-term overhead resistance at $4.19 with high volume.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in AMRS as long as it’s trending above its 50-day at $3.73 or its 200-day at $3.64 and then once it sustains a move or close above those breakout levels with volume that hits near or above 202,839 shares. If that gets underway soon, then AMRS will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $4.88 to $5.25, or even $5.50.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By John Udovich]

    Monster Beverage Corp (NASDAQ: MNST), a mid cap marketer and distributor of energy drinks and alternative beverages, has been a monster of a performer since the end of the financial crisis as the stock is up around 308% over the past five years, but could new or overlooked players like small cap beverage stocks Jones Soda Co (OTCMKTS: JSDA), Celsius Holdings, Inc (OTCMKTS: CELH) and Konared Corp (OTCBB: KRED) repeat that performance? A look strictly at the long term performance of all three small caps might have you thinking otherwise. After all, none of these small cap beverage stocks are profitable while the beverage industry can be a long hard expensive slog just to increase market share by one or two points when you are competing for shelf space with industry giants like Pepsi and Coke. But past performance is just that – the past and only part of the story as there is much more to consider about these small cap beverage stocks which could also make them potential acquisition targets by larger beverage players seeking to expand their product line up with innovative products:
