Those of you who are on the private email list got the news yesterday that YOUR Stock List was up +23.7% since February 10th. (38 trading days) More below under KISS & Stocks. [If you'd like to be on this email list you can find my email under Home/Editor]



was the headline on the major Left of Center Blog the Huffington Post & a front page story in the WaPo this AM. It referred to the threefold increase in threats to congress. This Intimidation and more was covered yesterday.

Bottom Line – The Intimidators or Bullies are winning because instead of having rational discussion of the facts behind health care, our financial system, economics, jobs, forgotten wars – all we have is the “entertainers” from FOX News encouraging intimidation because it makes money.  The left wing justifiably responding. But lost in all this is the facts and our ability to be civil to each other.

The last 2/3 of this video (Chris Matthew’s – MSNBC) deals with some of the facts rather than the shouting & threats that gets over covered on heath care. Investors411 is going to focus on some of the facts next week like the one below from Congresswomen Debbie Wassermann Schultz. (see video)(photo below from CBS)

Debbie Wasserman Schultz

“No one is going to force you to have health care.”You will be treated differently on your tax form if you do not have health care – just like married/unmarried people, renters/homeowners, kids/no kids etc.

Another up day as volume decreases. Tired of telling you historically volume is the #1 confirmation factor behind a price move and this market is therefore acting irrationally.  However that’s the trend, and the trend is your friend.

Our #2 factor -how markets are reacting to news is bullish. Markets seem to be reacting positively to good news and negative news only slightly halts progress.

Earnings week starts next week and Mondays are usually the best day of the week. So expect some short term traders to get long today to cash in on the Monday trend.

Significant Indexes

  • McClellan Oscillator fell  to -9.81 yesterday.  [+60 or above = Overbought = sell. -60 or below = Oversold = buy]. StockCharts has a better version of the McClellan chart ($NYMO)LINK. – This is still NEUTRAL territory – technically neither overbought or oversold.
  • US Dollar – basically flat  -0.02% yesterday. [Anything over +/- @0.50 is significant.] Dollar closed at $81.54 and the line in the sand resistance level is @ $82.2 Closing above this level and moving higher would be negative for stocks. Mantra -right now The Dollar Rules


The  Positions Section = latest buys and sells – (Revised positions last weekend) - These are positions I actually own

+23.7% Profit in 38 days

Before we go over these figures and answer there are 3 important points.

  • Caution Don’t let it go to your head. For the most part these stocks were chosen when the US markets were oversold, other reasons, plus we were lucky
  • Many many many thanks to Paul R for this data and contributing lots of stocks on the list
  • Re-read points 1 & 2

The dumbest thing you could do go out any buy on the stocks on this week’s list.  Your Stock List – you send in the stocks – many are fine stocks, but only some get chosen for technical analysis because I do not have the time to go over a list bigger than 10 to 15 stocks.

Question’s answered.

  • No Investors411 is NOT turning into a day or swing traders site. The basic formula of following trends will NOT change. IMAX’s 54.3% gain was the top stock on the list. It following an understandable trend in 3D technology.
  • Yes you can copy or find old copies of the list usually each Tuesday (Wed. this week) by using the calendar at the top of the blog.
  • Yes you can give a copy to your broker or file them in a circular container.
  • I  can’t stress enough to learn something about technical analysis and have a fundamental concept of why your stock will be higher in six months.
  • For a list of stocks Paul used to compute this see comments section on the right hand side.

Because your choices are mostly high beta stocks or those that are growing faster than others certain conditions must exist to put the odds more in YOUR favor.

  • A bull market
  • Oversold conditions – Investors uses the McClellan Oscillator or as Monitor named it the Mickey O. The more oversold the better.
  • In general technically the stock has to be dipping, consolidating, or breaking out. (Its not quite this simple)

Our form of  unregulated capitalism has negatively impacted trends.  These trends are reestablishing themselves. The major technical trend now in US stocks is we went too far to the downside and will probably go too far to the upside.  The cloud and cause over all of this is the lack of regulation. This pattern will repeat itself until fixed.

Individual stocks are riskier and what Investors411 will try to do is to cut down on that risk.
