PBY AZO AAP WMT

StockSaints – Shares of Pep Boys (PBY) are trading lower after the company announced disappointing sales results that missed Street expectations. Plus, it certainly doesn’t help that the company seems to be overwhelmed with rising costs. I’m beginning to wonder, if management has the capacity to turn things around.

Although not much was expected going into this quarter, the company still managed to run out of gas. The company reported a third-quarter loss of $6.8 million, or 13 cents per share, versus earnings of $7 million, or 13 cents per share in the year-ago quarter.

WMT AMZN

StockSaints – It is hard to imagine a company that was more American than Walmart (WMT) at the height of the recession as it was instrumental in helping households across America manage their budgets. Shoppers want the best items at the lowest possible prices. That is what Walmart offers.

Yet, critics rush to proclaim Walmart of being under-handed and killing off mom & pop stores while outsourcing manufacturing to foreign markets. But many do not appreciate that there is a cost for offering the best prices in town. In this case, the mantra “The devil is in the detail” proves true.

What Is A Simulated Trading Account And Why Should I Use One?

Stock Tickers

Simulated trading accounts / simulated trading, often called “paper trading”, “virtual trading”, “virtual account”, or simply "Sims" or "Sim Account" is generally a trading account setup by a broker to provide a real life experience of trading without actually using real money. A sim account can be very simple; a personal journal with the trader looking up the closing price could be a sim account, to very sophisticated broker accounts that try to closely mimic true buys and sells along with tracking profit and loss in real time.
