We're down. We're up. We're flat. We're queasy.

Motion sickness proved much more of a risk these past few days on the stock market than, say, inside the front seat of a Nikola  (NKLA) - Get Report truck....

But besides the moves on the major indexes, we have the headlines about TikTok, the oil and bank stocks (are they really a deal or not?), and, of course, that speculative world of electric vehicles.

Making sense of the news are Real Money and Real Money Pro experts Jim CramerPaul PriceTimothy CollinsAlex Frew McMillan, and James "Rev Shark" DePorre.

Jim Cramer: Oil and Banks Are No Bargain

Over and over again people want to buy these stocks because they are cheap. But how cheap are they really? 

Cramer tells how these two beaten down stocks can be toxic to unassuming investors

Price: Refuse to Be Gaslighted by Pundits

Investors are often convinced that there must be a hidden reason to ignore their own, fact-based, conclusions after they listen to the media's talking heads. But those who think for themselves should trust their research and skill and know when they should be backing up the truck and buying like crazy ... while the TV commentators tell them to run scared.

Price explains how to avoid getting tricked by the so-called experts.

Collins: Don't Stop the Truck for Nikola

While volatility can be a trader's friend, it's not to be taken out of context. A good example is the stock of Nikola right now, as the company is fending off accusations and scrutiny on many fronts.

Here's Collins' take on the company and its response to controversy. 

McMillan: TikTok, the Oracle Goes Up on Top

The Chinese parent of TikTok, ByteDance Ltd., appears to be resisting the sale of the U.S. operations of the world's most popular video app, pursuing a so-far vaguely defined partnership with the software company Oracle  (ORCL) - Get Report instead.

Real Money's Asia writer McMillan breaks down the deal.

DePorre: This EV Stock Is Charging Ahead

The competition is heating up in the electric vehicle space and the ultimate winners are hard to know, but one certainty is that no matter what company does dominate the space, there will still be a need for ways to charge EV batteries. 

DePorre gives his take on the EV stock that's at the top of the list for charging.
