Quantcast
I have 21 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.

    DATA was acquired today by Salesforce. I sold it at 171.43 for a 42.3% profit, so itís off my list. Itís funny, I just got through saying how DATA was my biggest disappointment and it popped today. Even a dog gets a warm piece of the sidewalk every now and then.

    ECL has an incredible chart. It has moved up steadily for over 10 years. Thatís a big winner.

    Pruned a couple of stocks from my long term portfolio: SQ and TCEHY. TCEHY has just been a total disappointment. Iíve held it for a while and basically just been a break even. SQ was more complicated. I had gains in it, but the chart looks iffy here with lots of overhead resistance. I still think SQ has solid long term prospects, and I may buy in sometime in the future, but for now I wanted to free up some cash to put into my winners as I recently began adding to a few of my positions. TCEHY was in my portfolio prior to the start of my December list. SQ was on my December long term list, so that list is now:

    AAPL, AAXN, AMZN, ANET, AYX, DOCU, EDIT, FB, ISRG, LYV, MTCH, MA, MDB, NVDA, OKTA, TDOC, TEAM, TTD, TWLO

    PS. If anyone wants me to continue my write ups, I will continue, but it didnít seem like there was much interest, so I stopped with MA.

    OK. Thanks. Iíll continue doing the write ups.

    BTW, I put some of the money from the positions I sold back into circulation and bought some ZM. Itís the first IPO in a while I have liked. I donít have a position (yet), but I also have some interest in another IPO, RVLV.

    First is STOR, a Buffett favorite, who essentially buy and rent properties in strip malls, as opposed to large store anchored malls, concentrating on businesses which by their nature can't be online-ized out of business. Examples would be barber shops, pool halls, nail (fingernail I point out, since most people here are men) shops, etc. Pays a 4.5% dividend, has recently pulled back under 28 after making new highs up to the 31s consistently since after 10/1.

    JDD, Nuveen Diversified Dividend and Income, which invests in dividend-paying common stocks including those of companies that derive revenues from residential real estate and debt securities from governments. It is up to 33% leveraged. Currently at a nine year low paying 10% at the current price. Rated 5 stars by Morningstar for 10 years, 4 stars for 5 years and 3 stars for 3 years.

    PFF and PGX. Both are ETFs which invest primarily in preferred shares. Each has recently bounced off a 5 year low as they became less attractive as rates generally rose and now rates seem maybe to have approached near term highs if the Fed backs off. Each pays almost 6%. They may at this level offer hope for capital gains (if one sells). I've bought both just to provide some safety against the remote possibility something happens internally to either (e.g. SEC complaints). I have also held most of my preferreds which are underwater for the same reasons these are and will sell the preferreds gradually as (if) I can get my money back. Might take a while.

    (Also reported elsewhere have bought AMZN, MSFT, BST, AAPL.)
    The above is from 1-3-19. STOR has been doing well for about 2 years now, Schwab shows it just under 20 in June of 2017 (34.70 right now) and up 22% YTD with the dividend now just under 4%. I've done pretty well stealing Buffett ideas, STNE would be another tho that has tailed off some lately.

    Speaking of YTD, JDD PFF and PGX have each done well since the first of the year, up 7%, 16% and 15% respectively, very good moves for such conservative investments. But if you get a 1-year chart instead of YTD you get an excellent example of how misleading graphs and statistics can be as the 1-year price charts look like elevation views of the Grand Canyon. Each of these fell 20-25% late in 2018 and are only now at or near where they were a year ago. Nevertheless my thesis in the 1-3-2019 post was to buy these near significant lows and hold till these and my preferreds came back to reasonable values and they have. Haven't sold anything because if I do I lose my interest payments and at least I'm in at good prices. Hopefully someone is still awake.

    I also mentioned AMZN, MSFT, BST and AAPL. Schwab shows these YTD as up 24%, 30%, 18%, 23% respectively. Figure to hold the first two at least 'til there are changes in top management. Not so sure about the last two.

    As I mentioned elsewhere I have started to lighten by selling my fuzzier performers. We've come kind of a long way.

    Default Write Up on MDB

    MDB

    MongoDB (MDB) is a US-based company that sells general-purpose database products. They are one of my top five long term picks. What makes them so unique is that they provide what it called a NoSQL database. NoSQL databases derive their names from the fact that they use a mechanism for storage and retrieval of data that is not based on the tabular, column and row based model of SQL (relational) databases such as Oracleís products. Having worked with flat file, relational (SQL), and object-oriented databases for most of my professional career, I can attest to how difficult it can be to work with relational databases and to write complex SQL queries. MDB touts their products as document databases that map the objects in the database directly to objects in your application code, making the database programming more intuitive. MDBís databases also employ a distributed model that facilitates scaling, high availability, and geographic distribution. Sound interesting? Well, apparently the database consuming community agrees. In the five years since MDB went public, earnings have skyrocketed. In their first year of reporting, revenue was $65.27 million. For the current (fifth) year, they are on track for $306.27 million. That 369% growth in five years. During that time, share price has gone from the IPO price of $33 to the current price of $167.76. Thatís a 408% increase. They are still losing money, but this is typical for a fairly recent IPO. The good news is that losses have declined each quarter and they are on track to become profitable in FY 2020. More importantly they have the look of a company that is well on itís way to $1 billion in sales. That kind of growth will translate into a big return for investors, which is why I hold MDB shares in my portfolio a have for some time.

    AAPL, AAXN, AMZN, ANET, AYX, DOCU, EDIT, FB, ISRG, LYV, MTCH, MA, MDB, NVDA, OKTA, TDOC, TEAM, TTD, TWLO
