Quantcast
I have 83 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?

    A comparison of VZ with SPY for June shows VZ up 8.5% with SPY down 1.5%. That's inching up pretty well.

    If things stay within 1% I'm dumping everything again at the open. I looked outside and the sky really does look like it could fall. Attachment 1095

    And I'm back to where I started. Sold:

    VZ 52.495 (-1.44%)
    BOFI 23.0049 (+34.23%)
    DAL 36.525 (-3.73%)

    Looking back, I had some chances to sell them all between 10-15%, and some chances to buy more in two of them when they were down 10-15%. Personally, I'm not as active a trader in stocks as I once was. I see myself as a farmer who put in years of effort learning high tech modern farming techniques, and who decided fertile soil and hand watering produced the best results(on his life). Going forward I should buy as many of my top picks as I can handle because I don't know which will end up going higher. I would of done better holding my entire top 5 vs picking 3 of them. Using this mechanical strategy, I'll try to find more to buy. If I ran my screen now I would probably get the same stocks as last time except at higher prices. If I didn't like the market back then, I like it even less now so my position sizes would be insignificant at this point. I plan on letting September and October pass and running my screen again in November.

    I'm back and watching VZ XIN DNKN from my screen and POT MOS from another strategy. I'll buy some of each within the following two weeks. The dividends excite me.

    If you're looking for yield, Ernie touts KMI common, but there is a 9.75% preferred (KMI-PRA or KMI/PRA depending on where you're looking) which seems attractive at this level, down some because of recent weakness in oil and the recent attitude towards yield stocks. This is my largest position which one may or may not consider a good recommendation.

    Also VZ has a preferred VZA which pays about a percent more than the common. It is at a 5-year low, or thereabouts. I'm going to buy a smidge when the dust settles. The recent chart looks like Victoria Falls. I consider Verizon, the company, a safe bet, Just need to get a good price on the preferred issue.

    With both of these you are giving up any chance at a really impressive upside, methinks.

    I am back again making my list... As I take a look at my last three buys, (VZ, DAL, BOFI[now AX]) I'm frustrated because I didn't hold them for a few years or even a year. I ended up holding those for about two months before selling. Under this scenario, it's going to be impossible for me to bring a portfolio up to 25% invested. So it's time to get disciplined on holding times when I own a stock.

    CHL looks good. The dividend is around 3-4% consistently the past four years. The P/E is low(10-11) compared to the s&p of 20-30. More to come later.

    CEF,ELP,CI,SKM,SNE,SSRM,ADM,CIM,VIV,SNE,DAL,AGX,CH L,EBF,SGB,LUV,NVS,VZ,WBA,INFY

    this is my latest dump. I like all of these stocks and will buy a few (three[3] or more) in the next few weeks. My favorites so far are INFY, CHL, CIM. Most of those have a nice combination of steady earnings, a low P/E compared to the overall market, a dividend etc. I included CEF and SSRM(formerly SSRI) even though they didn't derive from this mechanical screen... I only listed nineteen(19) names because I was a bit strict on my criteria this time around. I might be missing out on lots of companies with higher debt or higher valuation ratios. I am okay with this. I usually watch them for a couple days or even as much as two weeks for a final buy decision.

    Bought VZ, CHL, CIM yesterday near the open. Here we go again! 0.33% positions in each. The goal is to reach 25% invested by the end of 2019.

    I bought a few more 0.33% positions today off my screener. I'm determined to get 25% invested been though the overall market will probably get wacked this year. With that in mind, I chose some boring stocks with steady earnings, a growth stock, and some dividend stocks.

    ORI 21.395
    SKM 27.45
    SNE 51.30
    VZ 57.01
    SNP 82.55
    CHL 47.53
    KSS 61.29
    CIM never entered it cause of debt, sorry. I don't own CIM.
