134 Stocks priced above $2 and with a 20-day average volume of 250k or more are up 100% or more since the 3/23/2020 bottom.

A Possible Chink In The Armor For The Tech Stock

By |2020-04-28T20:16:04-04:00April 28, 2020 8:16 pm|

Over the last week or so, I've read countless articles/tweets about the love affair with tech names, specifically the FANG names; $FB, $AAPL, $AMZN $NFLX, $GOOGL, $MSFT. We've seen massive net flows (new money) going to the Nasdaq 100, as you can see on the chart below. The FANG names dominate the NASDAQ 100. Here is another chart that gives looking at a different indicator, 14-week RSI, but it tells you the same story; investors are tripping over themselves to buy tech names. The daily sentiment index is another indicator that shows a little frothiness. There's more; All this data [...]

This Is By Far The Biggest Laugh Out Loud Situation In The Market Since The Bottom, Sort Of

By |2020-04-25T07:42:23-04:00April 25, 2020 7:24 am|

Since the 3/23/2020 market initial bottom, the best performing S&P 500 Sector is the Energy Sector, it is up a whopping +43.90%. I say it is sort of like the biggest laugh out loud situation because those in the know are fully aware that typically, the hardest-hit stocks/ETF's are what usually bounces the hardest FIRST, not what held the best. Quite frankly, there is a HUGE difference between the strongest sectors and the best-performing sectors. Energy is the worst-performing sector on a one-year basis down -44.59%, but one man's 1-year garbage is another man's 3-month gold. You need to be [...]

Same Theme Different Week

By |2020-04-13T16:24:17-04:00April 13, 2020 4:24 pm|

As always, I have an interest in the best-performing stocks within my daily swing timeframe, which is 0-10 days. Within that timeframe, the best-performing stocks have been the ones near 52-week lows; this has been consistent every week since the 3/23 initial bottom. You can call it a dash for trash, dead cat bounce plays, etc. But this action is consistent with what typically happens in bear market dead cat bounces, the stocks hit the hardest, bounce the hardest. Regardless of your beliefs, this is a fact, and in case you were wondering, the gains are worth the same as [...]

Over the last week I've been reading about all the zoom bombing going on, and today I had a chance to experience it, it wasn't pretty.

This Week Was All About Going Against Conventional Wisdom

By |2020-03-29T09:48:11-04:00March 29, 2020 9:16 am|

This week was all about going against conventional wisdom. The week's best-performing stocks were the ones that were down the most up, which is typical action in almost every initial bounce after a severe correction. You can clearly see that in the best-performing stocks this past week in the Russell 3000, take a look at the weekly change and their one and three-month change. It's very simple; FIFO- first in, first out. HHHB--hardest hit, hardest bounce.  Short-term speculators should go to what is working now or what works best during the current market environment and not what conventional wisdom says. [...]

If you been following me for a while, you would know that when the market is under stress and going through a severe correction, I tend to get more active on social media, providing information that can help people navigate through the crisis.
