Quantcast
I have 26 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Overall, I do believe the Buffett method is truly the best method.

    I agree completely. STOR has done well till just recently.

    Also, bought some MPC. Sneaking up on a seven year low. They are refining, retail, and midstream operations. 6.5% dividend, earnings to cover said dividend (2.32 vs. 3.97), PE of 9. Bought about 1/3 of a position. Expect crude will go lower. Putin's not going to throw in the towel very soon methinks. Down a robust 44% since 2/20/2020.

    Totally agree with this, Buffett was one of the good people who helped and made us learn the nook and cranny of this kind of business.

    Officially adding two more options to my list of ideas for combatting a market downturn:

    Eight)* The Buffet Way
    Basically, he buys stocks for the long term and holds through market turmoil. Of course, you have to be astute at picking stocks that can weather a storm and bounce back. With this method, you should expect to hold a stock for at least 5-10 years or longer, but time has shown that if you invest in good companies you will prosper with this method.

    9) Trade index futures
    I donít know how I left this out. I havenít traded futures in a while, but this is certainly a viable way of being able to short the market, much like trading index ETF puts. One key difference with futures is that they represent an obligation to buy or sell whereas an option is, as itís name suggests, is a contract to optionally buy or sell the underlying asset. Another key difference is that with futures, unlike options. there is no underlying asset to deliver. For this reason futures contracts always settle in cash when they expire. With options, they either expire worthless, because theyíre optional contracts, or you end up settling at expiration by delivery of the underlying asset, i.e. the underlying commodity, stock, ETF, etc. Youíll need a separate (from the account you use to trade equities) account to trade futures.

    * - for some strange and unknown reason, the editor would not allow me to enter the number eight.

    take a look at MIC and KMP. They got beaten down because of the overall market and compounded by the energy pummeling. However they are not oil companies..they store oil for oil companies. Right now since oil is cheap and the market has reverted to "contango" they are going to see excellent YOY earnings. They also pay great dividends while you wait.

    Sorry...that's KMI (we always call it KMP in our industry emails for Kinder Morgan Partners).

    The valuations on both are excellent right now, and I agree that they could be great investments, especially as a hedge as the economy starts to show the effects of the CoronaVirus. Just be careful about opening any positions just yet. I donít think the panic is over, and I havenít seen any signs that we have bottomed. Iíve been watching closely for the last several days and I keep seeing the same pattern. Buyers come in and attempt to start a rally, and the sellers then overwhelm them, driving the market down even further. Funds and institutional holders must be selling into every rally trying to squeeze every dollar they can out of their positions. Iíd wait until we see a sustainable rally before opening any new positions. Iíve been trying to day trade the rallies myself, and the trades keep failing because the market rolls over. This is some nasty business.

    Well. I did buy STOR (in previous days). Their thing is buying strip mall properties which can't be internetized. Barbershops, laudromats, pool halls. Today it's down 20%.

    If you think about it these are a good sampling of what you don't want to buy because they all involve people walking in the door and people aren't walking thru any doors these days.

    Remember how many times here I have described Black Monday, 1987? I rushed to my husband and said, Honey, the Dow just dropped 500 points. He said, Don't worry, it will come back. It always does. My head is currently buried firmly in the sand.

    Took a full position in SFIX today, my first addition in a while. Iím going to treat this like a swing trade with potential to transition into a hold. I like what the company is doing, although they just recently had a disappointing quarter and guided poorly. The thing is, their model is going to be far more resilient during this crisis because they do not operate in the brick and mortar space. I think the shutdowns could benefit them by pushing more customers their way, so I am taking a shot. I also still like their long term prospects and believe in their CEO, who was just recently on Shark Tank.
