Its platform connects consumers, banks, and institutional investors through a shared AI lending platform.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Larry Ramer]

    For example, Upstart (NASDAQ:UPST), whose AI platform focuses on enabling higher performing bank loans, has done quite well, generating a large amount of revenue and growing rapidly. Since the scope of Stem’s Athena is also narrow, I expect it to also continue growing rapidly.

  • [By Thomas Niel]

    Admittedly, SPRT stock has seen a considerable run-up due to the BTC price rebound. Even so, with its sky-high short interest (62.5% of float), popularity among traders, and the comeback potential of its soon-to-be underlying business?  Consider this one of the “meme stocks” with the most potential.

    Up nearly 76% in a month, why do I like Upstart stock? Its off the charts run-up may make it look too chancy to dive into right now. But looking at its details, there’s merit to buying in now. Even as it appears to be topping out at around $201 per share. The AI-based lending platform has really started to see its operations take off this year.

  • [By Jennifer Saibil (TMFanibird)]

    But things are not quite that simple, and investors should focus on the long-term outlook when evaluating a stock. That’s why I’m going with Airbnb (NASDAQ:ABNB), Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS), and Upstart Holdings (NASDAQ:UPST) as hot stocks to buy this month. All three posted incredible growth in the second quarter, and they all have enormous upside.

  • [By Nicholas Rossolillo (TMFnrossolillo)]

    Much of the financial index’s gain can be attributed to traditional banks and financial institutions recovering from the effects of the pandemic in 2020. But for Upstart Holdings (NASDAQ:UPST), SoFi Technologies (NASDAQ:SOFI), and SVB Financial Group (NASDAQ:SIVB), the story isn’t about recovery. It’s about all-out growth as consumers demand a new type of financial service business built for the digital age. Here’s why I’ve been buying (or planning to buy) more of all three this summer.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tezcan Gecgil]

    Year-to-date (YTD), ARKF is up over 9% and  has returned more than 31% over the past year. The fund hit an all-time-high in mid-February. Yet since then, many of the shares in the ETF have come under pressure. Buy-and-hold investors could consider investing around current levels.

    Cboe Global Markets  (CBOE) – Get Report shares rose Wednesday, after a report that competing financial-securities exchange CME Group  (CME) – Get Report has proposed buying it for almost $16 billion in stock.

  • [By James Brumley (TMFjbrumley)]

    At its peak price on Wednesday, Cboe Global Markets (NYSEMKT:CBOE) stock was up more than 9% in response to whispers it was to be acquired by fellow exchange CME Group (NASDAQ:CME). Shares were back near break-even levels for the day, however, after CME Group denied the rumor.

    Sure, I will invest more in certain high-confidence picks than others, but without going overboard. This might limit the overall impact that a triple-digit winner makes in my High-Yield Investing portfolio — like the 156% gain we made on CME Group (Nasdaq: CME) when we sold in May 2018 — but it will also soften the blow from a laggard.
