Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


7:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

This morning, U.S. stock futures are considerably lower with the Dow’s down -90 points.

European markets were down in early trading. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng dropped +1.5%, while benchmark indexes in Shanghai and Tokyo were closed for holidays.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“When you think positive, good things happen.”
– Matt Kemp


The trade fight between the United States and China intensified as the two economic superpowers hit each other with their biggest round of tariffs yet.

The Trump administration imposed new 10% tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods just after midnight ET, spanning thousands of products, including food seasonings, baseball gloves, network routers and industrial machinery parts.

China retaliated immediately with new taxes of 5% to 10% on $60 billion of US goods such as meat, chemicals, clothes and auto parts.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend and added another new stock to add our watch list.

We now have 10 stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One stock in particular which was just added is WWW. This Apparel-Shoe Leader is building a base near new highs and above its 50-day moving average.

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com – Click chart to enlarge.

Standard rules apply – any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have any of these set ups confirming a BUY signal up to their MAX BUY PRICE by default.

Keep in mind that when a stock breaks out – becomes potentially buyable – there are other factors to consider.

Volume on the breakout. A stock that is breaking out through resistance, with an increase in volume of +50% above the stock’s average volume (50 DAV), is showing more conviction and more demand. This is not saying – all lower volume breakouts will fail. Actually, we’ve seen many continue higher. If you have found that you did buy a stock that showed lower daily volume or volume under 50%, going forward – simply treat it a regular trade.

Earnings BreakOuts. Many stocks from our watch list will break out during earnings season. Earnings breakouts can be more rewarding, however, these trades carry much more risk then traditional (non-news) breakouts. One needs to also consider – the strength/weakness of the fundamental news that was just released along with the forward-looking guidance the company gave, investors response to the conference call, etc. For anyone who is not familiar with – buying earnings breakouts – I suggest that they sit through a few seasons to study, paper trade, and show some profits, before applying actual capital.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.

As always, if anyone has any questions – please feel free to email me at james@jamestaulman.com as I would be glad to assist you. _________________________________________________

MON 9/17: Futures Slightly Higher – ICLR Works on a Base

Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


8:15 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

Last week all three major indexes posted solid weekly gains as each built on rallies from previous noted, well-defined support.

For the week, the Dow rose +0.9%, while the Nasdaq gained+1.4%, and the S&P 500 added +1.2%.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
– H. G. Wells


At current levels, the S&P is just -0.4% below its record close set in late August, while both the Dow and the Nasdaq are within -2% of their all-time highs.

The Dow booked its fourth positive week of the past five. The recent gains have taken it to the highest level since late January. This week the blue chips briefly tagged seven-month highs early Friday and went on to close well above the 26,ooo mark, ending the week at 26,155.

The Nasdaq posted its third positive week of the past four as the tech-laden index traded up from found support near its 50-day moving average and a near-coinciding upward trendline. (see chart)

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com.

The S&P 500 gained actually less than a point on Friday, but that was enough for a fifth straight positive day, narrowly notching its longest win streak in about seven months. The S&P 500 ended its ninth positive week of the past 11.

Also of note, small caps were the strongest performers Friday as the Russell 2000 ended with a daily gain of +0.5% and up +0.5% on the week.

The market rallied in large part on hopes for new U.S.-China trade talks as trade continues to be the biggest concern among investors. Late this past week, news broke that President Trump is expected to impose more tariffs of $200 billion on Chinese goods, and China is, of course, mulling a retaliation of its own.

This morning, U.S. stock futures were slightly higher.

European markets dropped in early trade. Major indexes in China shed more than -1%. Japanese markets were closed for a holiday.

FedEx (FDX) and Oracle (ORCL) will release earnings after the close.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend and added 2 new stocks to our watch list.

We now have 15 stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One stock in particular is ICLR which is building a base near new highs and above support of its 50-day moving average. This clinical researcher is highly ranked and a leader in its group.

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com – Click chart to enlarge.

Standard rules apply – any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have any of these set ups confirming a BUY signal up to their MAX BUY PRICE by default.

Keep in mind that when a stock breaks out – becomes potentially buyable – there are other factors to consider.

Volume on the breakout. A stock that is breaking out through resistance, with an increase in volume of +50% above the stock’s average volume (50 DAV), is showing more conviction and more demand. This is not saying – all lower volume breakouts will fail. Actually, we’ve seen many continue higher. If you have found that you did buy a stock that showed lower daily volume or volume under 50%, going forward – simply treat it a regular trade.

Earnings BreakOuts. Many stocks from our watch list will break out during earnings season. Earnings breakouts can be more rewarding, however, these trades carry much more risk then traditional (non-news) breakouts. One needs to also consider – the strength/weakness of the fundamental news that was just released along with the forward-looking guidance the company gave, investors response to the conference call, etc. For anyone who is not familiar with – buying earnings breakouts – I suggest that they sit through a few seasons to study, paper trade, and show some profits, before applying actual capital.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.

FRI 9/14: Futures Slightly Higher – USNA Builds Multi-Month Base

Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


8:45 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

This morning U.S. stock futures are slight higher as we head into the final day of the week’s trading.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.
– Noel Coward


European markets are posting gains, following a mostly positive trading session in Asia.

I ran my routine stock screens early this morning and added 3 new stocks to our watch list.

I removed ICUI as shares fell yesterday -6.4% and are now too far below their TRIGGER PRICE. Our LOPE was also cut for the same reason. Meanwhile, INTU was removed as it had traded higher above its TRIGGER PRICE, yet the volume never made our daily +50% min. increase. Shares of that stock are now getting too extended to be properly buyable.

We again have a lucky 13 stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One stock in particular is USNA which was just added as this cosmetics/personal care leader is building a base above its 50-day moving average.

Standard rules apply – any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have any of these set ups confirming a BUY signal up to their MAX BUY PRICE by default.

Keep in mind that when a stock breaks out – becomes potentially buyable – there are other factors to consider.

Volume on the breakout. A stock that is breaking out through resistance, with an increase in volume of +50% above the stock’s average volume (50 DAV), is showing more conviction and more demand. This is not saying – all lower volume breakouts will fail. Actually, we’ve seen many continue higher. If you have found that you did buy a stock that showed lower daily volume or volume under 50%, going forward – simply treat it a regular trade.

Earnings BreakOuts. Many stocks from our watch list will break out during earnings season. Earnings breakouts can be more rewarding, however, these trades carry much more risk then traditional (non-news) breakouts. One needs to also consider – the strength/weakness of the fundamental news that was just released along with the forward-looking guidance the company gave, investors response to the conference call, etc. For anyone who is not familiar with – buying earnings breakouts – I suggest that they sit through a few seasons to study, paper trade, and show some profits, before applying actual capital.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.

As always, if anyone has any questions – please feel free to email me at james@jamestaulman.com as I would be glad to assist you. _________________________________________________

THU 9/13: Futures Considerably Higher – DECK Continues Base Building

Richard-James– James F. Taulman, former Editor-in-Chief of the first independently licensed website to offer stock reports and services based on the CAN SLIM® investment system.


8:45 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

On Wednesday, the Dow Jones closed +0.1% higher, while the S&P 500 was flat, and the Nasdaq lost -0.2%.

This morning. U.S. stock futures are considerably higher with the Dow’s up +80 points.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Beware of false knowledge, it is more dangerous than ignorance.
– George Bernard Shaw


European markets opened mixed. Stocks in Asia ended with gains.

We still have some companies announcing earnings. America’s largest grocery chain, Kroger (KR) will report its quarterly earnings before the bell. Adobe Systems (ADBE) will release earnings after the closing bell.

UPDATE: Q2 Holdings, Inc. (QTWO – NYSE )

This selection had been on our watch list since early August as it was building a base near new highs and its 50-day moving average.

Shares just finally broke out last Friday in fine fashion as the volume that day was nearly twice the normal rate and the stock closed the session near the day highs.

SYMBOL LAST ADDED TO WATCH LIST BREAKOUT
DATE

QTWO $65.60 8/10/2018 9/7/2018 $63.90

MAX BUY PRICE 1st SUPPORT 2nd

MAX STOP
LOSS GUIDE
CURRENT % GAIN/LOSS
$67.10 $63.25 50 DMA $58.79 +2.66%

This week we did, however, see it pull back as the volume remained elevated, yet price has thus far held above our 1st SUPPORT.

Wednesday’s gains of +2.2% are only somewhat encouraging, as the volume on the advance is only about average.

I ran my routine stock screens early this morning, yet did not find any new stocks to add to our watch list.

We still have a lucky 13 stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One stock in particular is shoe manufacturer/retailer DECK which continues building a rather tight base near new highs and just above its 50-day moving average.

Standard rules apply – any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have any of these set ups confirming a BUY signal up to their MAX BUY PRICE by default.
