Looking for a Like-Minded Professional Who Manages Money ?
   – James Taulman

One question that I am regularly asked is – “Can you recommend a professional who manages money using the same methodology which your services are based upon?”

Over the years, there has been just a handful of these professionals who have stood out from the rest, and who I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for professional guidance.

One of them is Jack Elvestrom and here’s why…

____________________________________________________

On Friday, the major averages may have finished the week and month with a whimper, but each booked strong gains for the third quarter of 2018.

Over the past three months, we’ve seen the major benchmarks clamber back to new all-time highs, as investors focused on solid domestic economic health, while shaking off trade tariff tensions.

During that time the S&P has risen more than +7%, which is its biggest quarterly advance since the fourth quarter of 2013, while the Dow gained about +9%. Both indexes have now risen 11 of their past 12 quarters. The Nasdaq is also up more than +7% over the quarter, and made its ninth straight quarterly gain.

On the month, the Dow gained +1.9%, as the S&P 500 added +0.4%, while the Nasdaq actually edged down –0.8%.

Recent sessions have been relatively quiet as the trading range has been rather tight. The benchmark S&P has not closed with a move of even 0.5% in either direction any day this week. On the week, the Dow lost -1.1%, S&P 500 gave up -0.5%, while the Nasdaq gained +0.7.

This recent advance in the market is much broader than one might have anticipated in a late-stage expansion.

The market closed out the quarter against a comfortably bullish technical backdrop.

The recently lagging Nasdaq Composite is now nearing another possible breakout — challenging its range top (8,042) — while the S&P 500 and Dow industrials continue to digest previously decisive breaks to record territory.

Issues surrounding trade policy continued to linger as the trade dispute between the U.S and China grew more heated with the recent imposition of another 25% tariff on more than $200 million of Chinese imports to the U.S.

While investors have repeatedly shrugged off trade worries, focusing instead of strong economic data and corporate earnings, any additional developments on this front could dictate short-term market direction.

Another geopolitical event may take center stage in coming days as Italy’s anti-establishment government significantly widened its budget-deficit target for next year to fund its electoral promises. This is a move that will likely put it on collision course with the European Union. The issue is the latest bit of geopolitical turbulence that could impact Wall Street, following the currency crisis in Turkey earlier this summer.

Here at home, the Fed raised its GDP growth forecasts for 2018 and 2019, and dropped the phrase that its policy remains “accommodative.” However, the removal of the word should be taken as an indication that the economy is performing as expected, emphasized Fed Chairman Jerome Powell during a news conference following the Fed’s announcement.

I ran my routine stock screens over the weekend and added 5 new stocks to our watch list.

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

One of those is TSS which is setting up in a base. This Payment Processor is highly ranked and was previously on our watch list earlier this year and broke out.

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.

One of those is FLT which did trade above its TRIGGER PRICE yesterday, yet the volume did not confirm a BUY signal. Any gains from here with the required volume of at least a +50% increase would have this payment solutions provider buyable up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

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.

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.

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

We still have 12 stocks which we will be watching for the next buyable breakout – see here.

One stock in particular is medical researcher ICLR which traded +2.2% higher yesterday and actaully broke above its TRIGGER PRICE. However, shares closed back below that level while the day’s volume was not enough to have this leader confirm a BUY signal.

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.
