Paul’s Corner

August 2012



It looks like the market is finally getting ready to go again. We have sat through a correction starting back in April and have seen the Ying Yang of the market for the past few months. Unless you have an iron stomach or were a skilled intraday trader this market hasn’t been safe.

Your Stock List May 2012 has seen most of the stocks correct sharply. Another example that buy and hold isn’t a great strategy these days. So it’s time to put together another list. I recently posted a few suggestions in the comments section:

Comment link A:

Comment link B:

I spent the past few days looking at many of the stocks I stuffed into various watch lists in my HGSI database. I created a list of stocks which look interesting. The following .TXT file lists 100 stocks from my current personal watch list.

Paul’s Top 100:

The following is an Excel file of these stocks with lots of fundie and technical data. This spread sheet sorts these stocks using Ian Woodward’s “Point score”. It’s sorted on the “Raw Combo”, and this basically brings the best stocks (at the moment) to the top of the list.

Paul’s Top 100 Excel File:

Please note many aren’t buyable at the moment but are worth watching for future buy points.

So my friends, you now have a list of interesting stocks to evaluate. I need all of you to make requests/suggestions as to which stocks from this list or your own lists we might add to the next “Your Stock List”. I’m not going to glean the lists any further; it’s up to you folks to participate.

So are we up to the challenge?

Disclaimer: You buy any of the dogs listed on any of these lists, you are a fool! You lose your house, your van, or your show set up from buying these stocks, too bad!

Technicals, Fundamentals & Analysis

Investors411 record – 5 years of beating benchmark S&P 500

Mantra for September - ”The Black Box/High Frequency Traders BB/HFT control the majority of trades. CNBC’s Jim Cramer -”BB/HFT make up 80% of trades.”

US Markets

It’s a Ghost Town out there. – No Volume. The occasional talking head on one of the financial channels saws now that we rallied retail investors will come back into the market. Don’t hold your breath.

US markets gave up @ 1/4 of Friday’s rally in extra low volume. Giving up 1/2 the gains is a bearish sign. 1/4 in lower volume might even be considered bullish except the fall came in the last half hour of trading. This gives bears a slight hope.

Bottom Line- Ghost town-  Have Wall Street firms and their partners in crime across the financial industry now engineer virtually all market movements.…killed the goose that lays the golden egg…the retail investor.” LINK to editorial by Ken Hasner

Significant Indexes

  • The Dollar (USD) [Anything daily price move over +/- 0.50 is significant. Dollar usually moves inversely to stocks] The dollar fell  -0.07% yesterday. After sharp two week fall some sort of consolidation is to be expected. Short term trend is neutral But longer term trend for stocks = Bullish
  • The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) [measures cost of world trade. Also proxy for China & emerging markets] Rose a tiny 0.29% yesterday.  An 8 week bull run, then a two week fall, now pushing higher. Could be return to bullish trend. But for now = Neutral
  • McClellan Index – (MO) [The rough guideline is over +60 = overbought market = sell positions or short stocks, & -60 = oversold market = buy stocks.] Our top forecasting tool & by no means the only one,  fell to -1.88. Location= NEUTRAL

Reading Tea Leaves

The MO –  The chart of the MO shows a series of lower highs and lows. The MO would have to go below -20 to continue the bearish pattern. So -20 is again setting up as an important support level.

One interesting fact is the MO is near zero and stocks are near a 4 month high. The MO should be close to/above +60 or overbought. Bullish sign


The  Positions Section link to latest & former buys and sells  - These are positions I actually own

(I do manage 6 accounts that have other positions)

Longer Term positions -

  • EWS (Singapore) 2% trailing stop loss on 50% of position/ 4% trailing stop/loss on the rest.
  • USO (price of oil/commodity).
  • SSO (2x what S&P does- this ETF is more a trade that may turn into an investment) I now have a 2%trailing stop on 1/2 this trade and a 4% on the rest.
  • TYH (3X technology) Bought at market open for 33.48. For today have stop/loss at 33.49.

YOUR Stock ListPaul R reports in the comment section that the entire list is up +19.85% since inception about 7 weeks ago & +0.77% yesterday.

Pigs get Slaughtered – There’s a whole bunch of strong support levels on the benchmark S & P 500 we have to break down through, there’s a neutral MO, and the Fed printing and throw into cash into play that will cause a further drop in the dollar. All amo for bulls.

But gee a 20% profit and earnings season is around the corner. So lets stop & think. Don’t let your stock/ETF get over extended. Remember IMAX got up to +65% profit and way above its 50 DMA. Then is crashed back down to a much smaller gain. We sold for a handsome gain. Granted the MO soared above +60 too.

Don’t let your stock/ETF stray too far or get too greedy. Yes there still looks like there’s room for the manipulators to run the markets higher.

Obviously the CAUTIOUSLY BULLISH Longer Term Outlook is a signal of better stock prices in future.

But Remember – US equities are being engineered  and manipulated by our financial industry. To blindly hold and wait for long term profits is asking for trouble.

Longer Term Outlook - CAUTIOUSLY BULLISH
