Stock Cardians prefer to get a list of stocks to buy once or twice a week over a daily market recap.
On a scale of 0 to 10, you folks gave us an average score of 8.1 which means on average almost 8 out of 10 of you would recommend the Daily Roll show to a first. So, thank you for that vote of confidence!
But, almost half of you want us to share a list of stocks worth buying and why once or twice a week. This means you prefer to spend more time on the detailed analysis of stocks and ETFs rather than scratching the surface with the recap of the market.
So, in response, I plan to release one longer video each week, where I share a few stock ideas worth buying either by me or by our partners. I focus on original research and sharing with you what I'm buying. But, I don't buy stocks every week, especially if I don't find interesting opportunities. In those weeks, I will gather ideas from a few of our partners and share a summary with you. For example, this week, Joseph Hogue talked about buying Zynga (ZNGA) and Brian Feroldi and Brian Stoffel gave a thumbs up to Cloudflare (NET), while I personally didn't buy any stocks.
The beauty of Stock Card's portfolio publisher community is that there is always a good idea shared by at least one of our partners and I want to make sure you don't miss on those.
Bottom line is that every week, you'd get a detailed list of stocks to consider buying either from my or Stock Card's partners.
Stock Cardians want to get to know other investors.
Stock Card is lucky to partner with quite a few investors who either share their portfolios on Stock Card's Stock Picks page or just collaborate with us in different ways. We plan to have more open conversations with these partners and collaborators about their strategy, lessons learned in their journey to become investors, and also get them to share at least one great stock idea to buy.
Moving forward, I'll invite more investors to join the show and get them to share their good ideas with you.
Stock Cardians want to get involved.
The last change I'd like to propose is getting you involved in the research. Many of you know that our VIP users on Stock Card platform can suggest stocks to our team to do research on. This is in addition to the information you get on Stock Cards or ETF Cards. This is analyst commentary you can find in the Our Strategy section of Stock Cards and ETF Cards.
So, I plan to do more live events and research a few of those stocks that you have suggested on the spot using Stock Card and any other source I typically use.
As I record these live research shows, you will have an opportunity to join, submit a pitch, and even join me live. I'm looking forward to researching some stocks and ETFs with you. Expect an invitation to live pitch shows in the coming weeks as we figure out the format and plan for them.

So, there you have it. We’re saying goodbye to the Daily Roll show as you know it. We’ll focus on once-a-week, detailed research to give you great stocks to buy now. Expect to see partners and other investors as guests, as well as live stock-pitching events so you can get involved too.
And, that's it for today! From the team behind the Daily Roll show, I thank you for watching, listening, and reading.
Don't forget to give Stock Card a try and sign up for a 14-day free trial with promo code "rollwithourceo" all lowercase and in one word. I'll see you next Wednesday with the new format.
The new number of jobless claims was up slightly, holding back the market.
The market indices ended the day in the red.
After quite a few days of steady upward movement, the indices pulled back as investors digested some new economic info.
First up, the new jobless claims report came out and showed the claims were up slightly from last week, by about 4,000 cases. This didn’t entirely cause for alarm but certainly missed expectations.
Also, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis released the economic growth numbers today, coming in at 6.6%, which is barely above last month’s 6.5%. It’s a good sign to see that the growth stabilized despite consumer’s uncertainty.
Overall, there was enough negativity in the market to hold the market indices back from inching upward.

The pet care industry is booming and presents an exciting investment opportunity.
As an investor, my style is to invest in companies that play a significant role in my life. I believe our portfolios are the financial reflection of who we are. And as a dog mom, I'm always interested in pet-related stocks. My husband and I spoil our dog Kratos so much, and I don't believe we are the only ones. Just hear these numbers I found on Petpedia.com:
I 100% believe all these numbers. According to the American Pet Product Association, 2020 was the first year the pet products industry generated over $100 billion in revenue. I can also see the evidence of this booming industry on Stock Card. For example, on Chewy's (CHWY) Stock Card, I noticed the pet eCommerce industry is expected to grow by more than 11%. This convinced my team and me to launch a new list of stocks on Stock Card.
Say hello to the Pet Stocks collection. This is a list of 48 stocks that are somehow involved in servicing our furry babies. The companies range from retailers to insurance carriers. There’s a wide range of niches within the blanket term of pet care, so there are even more specific collections. Search “pet” on Stock Card, and you can see the sub-segments of the pet care industry:
PET STOCKS SCREENER
A pet care stock screener on Stock Card reveals a hidden gem stock, HSKA.
Now, not every pet stock is worth owning, even though the industry is growing double-digit rapidly. I started a new Screener on Stock Card's Screener tool to figure out pet stocks worth buying. I added the "Pet Care" collection in the Screener's search bar and picked a few specific filters:
The result was a short but sweet list of 4 pet care stocks worth considering. You can click here to get the list of Strong Pet Care stocks.
Two familiar names caught my eye first. Both Progressive (PGR) and Independence Holding (IHC) are significant players in the insurance game and have extended their services to pet owners.
The one stock in particular that interested me was Heska Corp (HSKA). I've never heard of it before. This is a pet pharmaceutical company that sells veterinary products. Its operations are split into two main divisions. With the first division, the company provides animal healthcare products to consumers. This is the front face of the business and what the brand markets itself as. The second division deals with vaccines and other animal pharmaceuticals in the agriculture industry, such as cattle medicine.
Heska’s Stock Card is looking great! It has solid green ratings for industry and sales growth alike, not to mention a positive free cash flow. The company isn’t quite profitable now, but having a positive free cash flow indicates that management is reinvesting profits back into the business. However, the industry has found a way to make its core operations run profitably. This stock has treated investors well too, just take a look at the Past Investment Return! You would have been rewarded for banking on Heska instead of the S&P 500 for the past ten years.
According to Heska's CEO, during the earnings report earlier this month, the company will continue growing steadily, raising the Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization (EBITDA) margin by more than 10% for the rest of the year. It’s balanced and well-managed, with a bright outlook. If you want to invest in the growing pet care sector while avoiding some of the weaker businesses, this is an outstanding stock to add to your list.

The S&P 500 and the NASDAQ hit records once again as the trading day ends in the green.
The market indices ended the day in the green once again!
While today's gains by the indices were relatively small, they still nudged them into another record day for both the S&P and the NASDAQ.
Despite the slower growth rate, the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise. The slower growth rate is bolstering investors' confidence that we are still on a path to reopening. Also, the market is hitting highs partially due to the possible new multi-trillion-dollar economic bill the Democrats are working on.
Overall, the market is nudging forward slowly.

Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) beat its pre-pandemic revenue by 45%, and the stock soars thanks to investors' excitement.
Today I was browsing the winner’s list of stocks, and a 4-greener stock caught my eye. Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) was up by over 13%! The company released its quarterly earnings report today. It beat last year's quarterly revenue by 20% and even beat pre-pandemic 2019 sales by 45%. It emerged from the retail woes of the pandemic stronger than ever! On top of this, Dicks is sharing the rewards with shareholders. The company already pays dividends to its investors, and the management raised it by 21%. For the cherry on top, shareholders were gifted a special one-off dividend of $5.50 per share.
Let’s take a look at Dick’s Stock Card to learn more. The company is doing great in terms of sales growth, profitability and generates almost $2 billion in free cash flow. The one part contradictory to such growth is the Price-to-sales ratio of nearly 1.0, which you can find under the Valuation Multiples section.
This is again a similar story to Best Buy (BBY) that we discussed yesterday. Investors assume brick-and-mortar retail is dead. However, retailers with cash and a strong brand have managed to prove them wrong. They also, typically, pay a dividend based on their solid balance sheet and free cash flow. For DKS, you can see it score well across all 11 dividend criteria under the Our Strategy section on Stock Card.
SPECIALTY RETAIL SCREENER
Pandemic has helped cash-rich specialty retailers (HIBB and HZO) get stronger with an online and offline experience.
The upward trend and good performance by Target (TGT), Best Buy (BBY), and Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS) got me thinking, what other specialty retailers are out there?
I started a new Screen on Stock Card's Screener tool, added the "Specialty Retail" collection in the Screener's search bar, and picked a few specific filters:
The result was 18 stocks worth considering. You can click here to get the list of Strong Specialty Retail stocks.
Let’s take a quick look at two of the search results from this Screener:
Specialty retailers like Dicks, Hibbett, and MarineMax benefit from being leaders in their niches with forward-thinking management. The past year and a half have given these cash-rich companies a chance to transition to eCommerce and still create an excellent in-store experience. The pandemic has worked wonders for them, especially retailers, and we now see them harvesting the benefits.
You may want to have some of these solid retailers in your portfolio, especially if you look for stability and cash from dividends that most of them pay.
