The Follow Up

Jobs Question on…

.

The Mt. Everest of Cash

Businessman climbing on money vector

.

Apple Computer.

.

Apple  was sitting on

The Mt. Everest of Cash.

.

They will be lavishing on wealthy investors 10′s of billions in  dividends and stock buy backs.

Making the already rich 1% even richer [Richest 1% in USA had 93% of the income gains in 2010- See yesterday's blog]

.

What Apple Could Have Done?

.

  • Launched a huge expansion in Research and Development – Creating Jobs
  • Launched a Program with American Universities to help train workers for Apple Jobs
  • Launched a Program with American Government to help train workers for Apple Jobs
  • A spectacular PR move that uses of 1/10 of that Mt Everest of cash to help Americans.

.

WHY IS IT THAT

CONSERVATIVES BELIEVE

MOST AMERICAN WORKERS

ARE LAZY

RATHER THAN MOST

OF THE WEALTHIEST

1% OF AMERICANS

ARE GREEDY?

The Fed’s (Central Banks) Has You’re Back

Every analyst out there has called for a correction over the last three months. Obviously the longer the rally goes on the more the “experts” call for a correction.

It will happen when it happens

How big a correction, will be decided

by Central Banks

Why Stocks Rally

Another Example

.

AAPL reached another all time high closing high yesterday. Apple could have used its Mt. Everest of cash on reseach and develpment, thereby insuring more organic growth over the long term.

Instead they now offer a healthy dividend and stock buy back for mostly wealthy shareholders.

.

Why This Creates a

Short term Rally

.

APPL has moved from over bought to OMG over bought for three months. Amazing all who have called for its downfall.

What the dividend/buy back program does is open AAPL to a whole new class of VALUE investors, who would not have otherwise bought Apple.

All those who chase momentum in stocks now know there’s a fresh supply of investors in waiting to buy. So they too buy the dips.

.

So for a while APPL will move higher

on the new supply of investors

NOT future Organic Growth.

Paul’s Corner

While the indexes suggest a never ending rally, there are hints the market is stalling. Otay, understand? Keeping this in mind, here are what our charts look like.

TRADERS

CMG – Continues its march up, this is the kind of tight chart you want a stock to have. The angle of the chart has turned up indicating a wee bit of extension  and the buying has accelerated. Buy any dip.

DLTR – great chart, continues toward the BIG dollar in the sky!  Buy any dip.

ENB – Basing, sitting on the 50

FAST – good chart, buy any dip

FL – nice gap up two days ago, buy any dip

HD – excellent tight chart, buy any dip

IBM – the old dog hit’s a 52 week high, proof you don’t kick out an old dog unless it starts smelling. Buy any dip. 1.4% dividend

IMAX – HGSI indicators have turned red, two red/down Kahuna’s the past few days, sitting below lower Bollinger Band, needs to cross up through the middle BB (25.74) before a buy is “safe”.

KLAC – nice break out of a short handle/base, buy any dip.

LEN – great earnings report, gapped up yesterday, buy any pull back.

MA – broke out of a month long base, buy any dip.

MNST – what a monster of a chart, buy any dip!

RYL – sitting above the 50, LEN has a better chart.

TSCO – broke out of a 3 month base, buy any dip.

URI – basing, sitting on the 17, and personally driving me nuts. Subject to the whims of the “housing market”

WATCHERS

AKRX – sitting above the 50 and 17, basing, HGSI indicators are red.

BKI – HGSI indicators green, sitting above the 50/17, two blue/up Kahuna’s past few days, buyable

KOG – basing, above the 50, below the 17

SWI – broke out of  nice 2 month base, all indicators green, good 13 day Force, other similar Software stocks are doing well. Buy any dip.  Expect to add this stock to the traders.

DUMPSTERS

SIMO – chart suggests not buyable

CATM – chart broke down through the 50, HGSI indicators red, not buyable.

FTK – buy at your own risk.

Be sure to check earnings release dates, that’s your responsibility not mine!

Disclaimer – all comments for education only, buy or trade at your own risk. At time of writing I do own some of the stocks listed.
