The S&P500 index fell again upon testing its historical maximums. The last two waves of declining were used by investors as a chance to buy with the aim to take at the start of the new ascending trend. However, as soon as the price reaches its record values, the buyers disappear and those who bought earlier lock in their profit, putting pressure on the index.

On August 6th Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) submitted its financial report for the second quarter of 2019. According to the report, the company's income has reached record levels, amounting to 20.25 billion USD; however, it has not matched the forecast level of 21.46 billion USD, which led to a steep decline of the stock price by 5%.
Falling of Pfizer stocks in April 2019 was used by investors as a good chance to buy them. This time the stocks have fallen again, so let us try to figure out the reasons for this as well as the perspectives of long-term investing in them.
In 2018 Spotify Technologies (NYSE: SPOT) carried out an IPO. The company is less popular than, say, UBER (NYSE: UBER); nonetheless, it attracted attention of other issuers planning an IPO because of its unusual placement, i.e. direct listing.
In the end of May I called Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) stocks the best investment on the declining market; however, today I am talking about the probability that their price falls for 90%. I have not changed my mind about the company and insist on their stocks being one of the best possible assets for investment, which seems even more so after the recent events on the market. But first of all I would like to speak about certain actions of companies on the exchange market which cause significant rises as well as falls of stock prices. In other words, we are going to talk about the stock split.
Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has been downtrending since December, having lost around 48% so far. In early May, in another Tesla stocks review, we mentioned the short position percentage had been around 25%. Now, it's already 28.12%, and every single day, the negative sentiment increases. When the stock was above $300, there was not so much of negative forecast; currently, both the leading banks and analysts are downgrading Tesla's rating. Some even say the company may get restructured, and call Elon Musk a scammer, probably just to make their short positions more effective.
Transdigm Group (NYSE: TDG), an aerospace parts manufacturer, was a very engaging company in terms of nice profits in the long term. Currently, however, the US Congress may run an investigation against it. The investors have already started to sell the shares off. Let's see whether one should or should not panic yet.
Alibaba (NYSE: BABA) released its quarterly report on May 15, where both the earnings and the EPS exceeded Bloomberg's expectations. The earnings hit CNY 93.50B, or $13.60B, 50.60% more than a year before, while the net profit rose by 250%, reaching CNY 25.83B, or $3.72B.
Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) reported negative net profit for the first time in fourteen years, which pushed the stock down by 16%. Hailong Xiang, the Senior Vice President who had been running the company since the IPO, resigned, his post being taken by Dou Shen, the former Mobile Product Vice President. This proves that the current company's scheme got obsolete and does not yield enough profit; Baidu is now likely to get mobile-oriented.
Popularity is a thing that sometimes comes up all of a sudden, when you are not expecting it at all. Workhorse (NASDAQ: WKHS) was not known by the general public a week ago, but no sooner had Donald Trump mentioned it in his Twitter, its trading volume rose from 200k to 49M shares over a single session (FB, for instance, has an average of 13M), while the stock price went up by over 200%. The Workhouse management was probably not quite ready for such an explosion in popularity, with the company website being completely down.
