Technicals, Fundamentals & Analysis

See Positions for changes made each weekend

Significant Indexes

  • McClellan Oscillator fell  to -37.70 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 in NEUTRAL territory – but we are approaching oversold territory (over -60) – A time to buy.
  • US Dollar – rose +0.20% yesterday. [Anything over +/- @0.50 is significant.] Mantra – right now The Dollar Rules Is very important. Remember, dollar down almost always = stocks up and visa versa. The 50 day moving average is a major support/resistance level. Right now the dollar is just above the 50 day MA.  Think of a huge battle going on over the last 5 trading days as to wether the dollar goes up or down. Dollar bulls seem to be winning.


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

Caution- This is mostly just technical analysis and lots of other factors enter into a decision to buy or sell

Caution – We are in the middle of earnings season and a bad or good earnings report can move these stocks @2 to 10+% Many of these stocks are moving in anticipation of or reacting to earnings reports. This has to be considered before you buy/sell

Well aware that most of you are looking for longer term buys. Remember Stocks are riskier than most ETF’s. Our main stategy is to buy the dip of a stock that is trending higher.


  • CAAS –  China stock – Dipped in low volume after making a higher high – at its buy point. Now sitting directly on its 50 day moving average (MA) – Risky – Now or never time to buy
  • CNAM China Stock –  riskier than CAAS but near support and at buy point. Broke support and is falling – Makes fellow Chinese stock CAAS riskier buy
  • PCLN –  Slow melt up continued dipped 1% yesterday Would like a bigger dip to buy. Just got our bigger dip in moderate volume. Close to 50 day MA support level. A buy the dip stock.
  • F –   Forming a support level along its 50 day moving average A buy the Dip You won if you bought the dip. Now consolidating. Risky buy now, better on dip.
  • CSCO,   Other tech gains AMZN AAPL look better. Slower moves than smaller stocks but safer plays. CSCO & AMZN (a bit better) All these stocks are to high above their 50 Day MA, especially apple Wait for dip
  • SHOO –  Dipped last two days, but still a bit overextended. Dipping down, but still too overextended. Buy bigger dip.

  • VCI Consolidating and dipping toward 50 day MA/support level. Buy the Dip. Twice dipped to 50 day MA and held, but volume could be better on rally days = riskier. Buy the dip.
  • CREE –  Now a bit over extended. Chip stock should benefit from INTC earnings. A buy the dip Now dipping. Traders could buy if it dips some more. Investors wait.
  • SNDK –   Slow melt up,INTC should benefit, buy the dip. Dipping. Traders buy small dips, Investors wait.
  • CTRP –  Dipped in lower volume and seems to found support. Now or never buy. Weak volume small rally then Fell in big volume

The following stocks are related to the growing 3d technology. IMAX is a full 3d stock. The others are theater chains that benefit from raised 3d ticket prices and attendance. But they are also impacted by overall box office. Therefore IMAX is a more favorable based on the technology.

  • *CNK (Cinemark)  No big box office shows till May. Short term in trouble. Rallied at high. too overextended to buy
  • RGC (Regal Entertainment) . Better buy at end of month after dip. Dipped and rallied yesterday too much volume behind fall wait.
  • *IMAX .  Riskier, but a buy the Dip – Dipped, but still overextended from 50 day MA. Traders buy dip Investors wait
  • CKEC [NEW] (Carmike Cinemas) Overextended.  Wait for bigger dip.

32 million new heath care customers (Obama/Pelosi health care bill) means some stocks are going to rally on this increased supply and the growing aging population of baby boomers who need health care. Hopefully long term buys.

  • *ESRX (Express Scripts) – Slow melt up hopefully this is a long term hold Big dip,big rally – wait.
  • *TEVA (Teva Pharmaceuticals) Moving down toward 50 Day MA/support. Again hopeful long term buy. If you don’t own buy dip at 50 day MA/support

New Stocks - I’d add more but its very time consuming. Many thanks to Paul R, Monitor and some others who prefer to remain nameless for suggestions.

  • VLTR Chip stock should befit from INTC. Solid long term pattern of higher highs and lows. recent dip makes for good entry point. Paul R warned of earning report & stock has dipped. Closer the dip to 50 Day MA the better the buy.
  • UAUA (recommended by 2 of you) Great long term pattern. Over extended – right now Dipping in weak volume = good. Traders buy smaller dip Investors wait for 50 day MA
  • SLAB (recommended by 2 of you) Classic cup and handle breakout. Even more extended – buy a bigger  dip Dipped Traders buy smaller dip Investors wait.
  • MSPD [NEW] Mindspeed Tech Sure looks like a major entity pumped and dumped a breakout. But now that the dust has settled buy the dip

Analysis – The McClellan Oscillator at -37.70 Last week this was at zero. The lower the MCClellan goes the more oversold the NY Stock Exchange becomes. -60 is the approximate point that stocks become oversold in general and a good time to buy. So we are at a better buying point than last week, but have a ways to go to -60

* =  Investors411 has a position in these stocks.
