NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- As an investor you have choices, and you need to choose well. More than 5,000 stocks are available, and it may appear daunting at first, but you can eliminate most of them in less time than it takes waiting to hear "sell, sell, sell," during tonight's episode of Mad Money.One stock you don't need to spend any time looking over is Amazon (AMZN - Get Report). Yes, I know it popped higher on an analyst upgrade, but if you think that's a buying signal, allow me to let you in on a not-so-hidden secret. Ready? Stocks will often peak on analyst upgrades, and bottom on analyst downgrades.
You're Nuts If You See Amazon's P/E as a Buy Signal
