Quantcast
I have 23 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?

    Been closing positions selectively over the last several days. I donít like the feel of market right now.

    I have pruned a few positions out of my long term holdings, but Iím still holding tight with the majority of my positions. One that I am still holding is ZM, in which I have a 1/2 position that is currently under water. Despite the drop in price, I like this company for the long term. Iím thinking I might buy another 1/2 position here because the price is so discounted at current levels. Another beaten down stock I really like as a possible long term investment is WORK. I donít own it yet, but it also looks heavily discounted and could be a buy at current levels. Do your own research and see what you think. Just putting out some ideas for you to consider.

    One cautionary note: Though the market has been a little bullish over the last week, the rally of the last few days has not necessarily been broad based. For example, in the S&P, which made a new all-time high today, only 8% of participating stocks also made new highs. I have also attached an interesting chart that plots the split between the S&P and stocks above their 50 day moving average (courtesy of IndexInvestors.com).

    😊 I admit that it may be a little early with ZM, but I like them because theyíre a phenomenal growth story with a lot of potential in an enormous market. For example, last quarter revenue grew by almost 100% YoY and their EPS beat estimates by 700%. Revenue has grown from $60.8M for FY 2020 to $330.5M for FY 2019 and is expected to hit $463.7M for FY 2020. What is even more amazing is that they are already profitable despite the fact that they only IPOíd in April. Theyíve also almost doubled the number of customers in the last 12 months and generated a net dollar expansion rate above 130% for the fifth quarter in a row. There is real growth story here that seems unappreciated (so far). Moreover, the global video conferencing market size was valued at USD 3.4 billion in 2017 and is expected expand at a CAGR of 9.2% from 2018 to 2025, which provides an awful lot of headroom for this company. I think the stock took a hit because of valuation concerns, but Iím still a strong believer that growth fuels share price and this a high growth company that is still generating ridiculous growth numbers. Iíve been wrong before, and only time will tell for sure, but I like the story at ZM, and Iím willing to take shot on a few stocks like this because of their potential to become multi-baggers. The story at WORK isnít as compelling, but itís still strong. I am also familiar with their product and see their market penetration continuing to improve. Still havenít pulled the trigger on WORK, though, because of market concerns. Normally, I would be more aggressive.

    I notice both did well yesterday. I worry about charts of various stocks since Labor Day. A lot have gotten clobbered. Why? I don't think it has anything to do with the companies. More likely the general disenchantment with IPOs. Also I got up at 5 this morning and the Dow was indicated up 38. Now at 5:30 it's indicated down 78 because of a tweet or something by someone that the Chinese will not sign an agreement with Trump. I look at FSLY, CRWD, IIPR, ZM, EDIT, RVLV, AYX recently and can't figure out what's happening.

    I sold off a few (mostly losing) positions because of volatility, and I added a few speculative (half) positions, so my portfolio has been a little shaken up. For what itís worth here are my current positions along with stocks I am watching for possible addition. For those stocks I own and did not do a write up on, I will try and write then up when I have time, but right now I am devoting a lot of my free time to arpeggios, chord tones, and my beautiful baby granddaughter. ​

    Thank you for the update. OLLI is an interesting choice, opening lots of new stores, looks like a good entry point.

    OLLI is a great growth story with lots of upside potential. There may be some concerns that their expenses have ramped up, which has slowed growth in their EPS even though revenue grew 15% last YoY. Then again, theyíre using that money to fund their growth, so Iím OK with it. It sure looks like theyíre positioning themselves for solid long term growth, i.e. theyíre managing for the big picture. It also doesnít hurt that theyíre actually a little undervalued. In fact, they may be the only 4 or 5 star Morningstar stock that I currently own because, as an aggressive growth investor, I tend to buy into stocks with valuations skewed to the high side.

    I stopped going to Big Lots when they went nearly 100% Chinese made. Ollies is like an early Big Lots. Actual great bargains on overstock merch. Only place I've found size 12-16 socks at less than half price. Good for lawn fertilizer and Preen also. I didn't realize OLLI had an over 4 bil. market cap.
