Quantcast
I have 33 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.

    Default LAZY DOG Picks

    This old dog is going to try and simplify Mr Marketís stock picking method.

    Iím just too damn lazy to do 8 screens. To create the universe of 200 or so stocks that have strong price appreciation and earning growth Iím just going to use the available IBD screens.

    I will build a data base of the stocks in those screens and cull anything that doesnít have a composite rating, EPS rating or an RS of at least 85.

    I am also going to use the screener at Finvis.com to look for stocks with the following:
    Average volume over 200000; Trading 0 to 5% below the 52 week high.
    ROE over 25%; Operating Margin over 10%.
    EPS Growth for the year and quarter over quarter = positive.
    Debt to equity less than 1.

    If these stocks meet the IBD minimum requirements they will be added to the data base.

    Iím not going to bother looking at any ratings besides IBD.
    The KISS principle. The more information I have the more befuddled I get.

    Now comes the question of which stock to buy.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
    That makes sense. Iíll be scanning the data base charts for stock breaking out of a base to new highs and stocks making new highs that have pulled back for 3 days or so.

    Todayís scan turned up these breakouts:


    CMI Cummins Inc
    DD Dupont De Nemours & Co

    The Lazy Dog Portfolio will have a maximum of 5 stocks at any time.

    The value of any stock purchase will be as close to 20% of the portfolio as I can get it.

    I will cut my losers. ( I know, I know, losses are for losers.) But I have been known to be wrong before (just ask my wife) and I donít want to tie up capital while I wait for a stock to recover. No hard stops but I will keep an eye on my non performers.

    To start off today I bought TRMB @ 37.50
    This stock broke out of a base on Nov 3 of above average volume.
    I had a bid in yesterday that didnít get filled but got some this morning.

    Good fortune to ya, my fellow canuck.

    EDIT: In what time frame are you going to initially fill up your 5 positions? Once a week? I was going to say if you were going to show your top 5 before making the final decision, you could name your dumps and obviously get some forum input (if that matters to you).

    I'll pick the stocks as they show up on my scans.
    This morning nothing showed up.
    I'm in no hurry the stock not only has to meet the fundies but also has to have the right technical criteria.

    I hope so too.

    If I can figure out how to post a spreadsheet I'll do a weekly update when I'm around.

    Every so often I get the urge to hit a golfball in anger so I leave the frozen north and head for the sunshine. Could be gone for a month or two and it depends on the kind of internet conection I have as to whether I am able to post.
