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.


8:30 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

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

After another up day yesterday, stock futures are pointing to a higher open this morning.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“I can resist everything except temptation.”
– Oscar Wilde


European markets are little changed.

The mood in Asian markets was mostly positive, with Chinese indexes posting gains.

Kohl’s (KSS), JM Smucker (SJM), Coty (COTY) and Toll Brothers (TOL) will release earnings before the open. La-Z-Boy (LZB) and Urban Outfitters (URBN) will follow after the close.

We had a buyable breakout yesterday, a shares of LULU traded above their TRIGGER PRICE with the required volume of at least a +50% increase.

I ran my routine stock screens late last night, yet did not add any new stocks to our watch list.

We now have 16 stocks that we will be watching for the next buyable breakout.

One stock in particular is QNST which just reclaimed 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 strenght/weakness of the fundamental news that was just released along with the foward-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.

MON 8/20: Nasdaq Closes Lower, Yet Holds Support – VEEV Sets Up

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.


5:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

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

Last week, the major averages capped a volatile week on Friday with a their second consecutive solid up day.

This extended a powerful rally which was first ignited on Thursday as stocks reversed higher sparked by news that Beijing and Washington had agreed to resume trade negotiations, and that offset the Turkey currency crisis fears.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Be your own artist, and always be confident in what you’re doing. If you’re not going to be confident, you might as well not be doing it.”
– Aretha Franklin


For the week, the Dow Jones rallied +1.4% and closed at its highest since February 26th while the S&P 500 gained +0.6%. The Nasdaq Composite did lag due to weakness in semiconductor, solar and some software groups, and actaully lost -0.3% on the week.

The tech-laden index did however, find support at its 50 DMA for the second time in three days. It has now successfully tested this important technical level several times since it broke above that line on May 4th (see chart).

Chart courtesy of stockcharts.com.

There’s been no shortage of crises this Summer. From trade wars to the collapse of the Turkish lira. However, one market’s crisis is another’s opportunity, and I’ve read that Europe’s shaky currency union could send U.S. stocks soaring. Even though anyone could argue that U.S. stocks are probably overpriced, when forced to pick a poison, the U.S. looks much less dangerous and is therefore more appealing.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend and added 1 new stock to our watch list.

We now have 18 stocks that we will be watching for the next buyable breakout.

One stock in particular is VEEV which is the newest addition and is near its TRIGGER PRICE.

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.

FRI 8/17: Market Turns with a Solid Up Day – Watching CPRT to Confirm

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.


5:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

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

After a rough few days, the major averages closed sharply higher yesterday.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Live life to the fullest, and focus on the positive.”
– Matt Cameron


The Dow actually closed Thursday with its best day in four months while all 11 S&P 500 sectors finish in positive territory.

There was also news that the U.S. and China are prepared to resume trade talks next week and that has bolstered investors’ sentiment.

I ran my routine stock screens last night, yet did not add any new stocks to our watch list.

We still have 2stocks that we will be watching for the next buyable breakout.

One stock in particular is CPRT which actually traded above its TRIGGER PRICE yesterday. Any further gains with a volume increase of at least +50% above average would be buyable up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

9:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

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

After a down day yesterday, U.S. stock futures are sharply higher this morning with the Dow’s up +200 points.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.”
– Robert H. Schuller


European markets are mostly positive in early trading, with the exception of the Italian FTSE MIB index, which was down by about -2%. The country’s stocks were dragged lower by a -25% drop in Atlantia (ATASY), the operator of a bridge that collapsed earlier this week in Genoa.

It’s a big day for U.S. retail earnings with Walmart (WMT), Dillard’s (DDS) and JCPenney (JCP) set to release earnings before the open. Nordstrom (JWN) will follow after the close.

Consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of the American economy, making these retail reports especially important to assess economic health.

Shares in Cisco Systems (CSCO) are expected to surge at the open by about +6% as investors react positively to its earnings.

I ran my routine stock screens last night, and added 5 new stocks to our watch list.

We now have 2stocks that we will be watching for the next buyable breakout.

One stock in particular is EXPO which was just added last night as it is building a base near new highs and above its 50 DMA.

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.

MON 8/13: Futures Slightly Mixed – CHGG Nears Trigger Price

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.


9:00 AM – MORNING MARKET UPDATE & WATCH LIST

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

Last week, all three of the major indices were on pace to book another up week until Friday when fears of financial trouble in Turkey weighed heavily on the market.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”
– George Washington


The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 196.16 points on the session and booked a -0.6% weekly loss.

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

The S&P 500 posted a -0.3% weekly decline, breaking a five week win-streak, and notching the worst daily drop since late June.

The Nasdaq Composite did close lower on Friday, yet managed to end the week with a +0.4% gain.

Implied volatility as measured by the VIX jumped +19% to 13.41.

On a somewhat positive note – small cap stocks did fall on Friday, but held up relatively well as the Russell 2000 staged a slight stealth intraday rally Friday.

U.S. earnings, on the whole, are solid, with the number of companies beating earnings estimates at the highest point since the third quarter of 2009, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co. Second-quarter earnings season is still in full swing, and retailers will take center stage this week.

It continues to mostly be a tug of war between concerns about the persistent trade dispute between the U.S. and China vs. positive sentiment over strong corporate earnings against a healthy economic backdrop.

This morning, European stock markets opened with losses of less than -1%. Stocks fell -2% in Tokyo and -1.5% in Hong Kong.

There were some signs that the crisis in Turkey was beginning to spread to other markets.

Currencies were hit in South Africa, Mexico, Argentina and Russia as investors moved into assets perceived to be less risky, such as the dollar, yen and Swiss franc.

I ran my routine stock screens last night and added 5 stocks to our watch list.

We now have 18 stocks that we will be watching for the next buyable breakout.

One stock in particular is CHGG which is building a base near previous highs and is near (-1.44%) its TRIGGER PRICE.

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 strenght/weakness of the fundamental news that was just released along with the foward-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.

FRI 8/10: Futures Lower – Watching USAT to Confirm

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.


7:00 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 off by -97 points.

European markets opened down, following a mostly negative trading session in Asia.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.”
– Lyndon B. Johnson


Meredith (MDP) will release earnings before the bell.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics will publish its July CPI report at 8:30 a.m. ET.

I ran my routine stock screens last night and added another stock to our watch list.

We now have 13 stocks that we will be watching for the next buyable breakout.

One stock in particular is USAT which actaully traded above it TRIGGER PRICE yesterday.

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 strenght/weakness of the fundamental news that was just released along with the foward-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.
