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.


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

After a down day yesterday where we seen the Dow lose -1.1%, while the S&P 500 closed off -0.8% and the Nasdaq shed -0.9%, futures this morning are modestly higher.


“Hurricane season brings a humbling reminder that, despite our technologies, most of nature remains unpredictable.”
– Diane Ackerman

European markets opened their session lower, while Asian markets ended mostly down.

NOTE: As many of you know, we are located in South Florida, and are directly in the proposed path of hurricane Irma.

We have been preparing for the storm by securing our homes and properties and also obtaining supplies such as water, canned goods, propane, etc.

We will do our best to keep the website and services updated over the next several days, yet may experience some downtime or outages.

As far as your trading and investing is concerned – continue to follow the rules. Generally speaking, this means – buying any breakouts with volume, and selling any postions that are showing weakness.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

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

I removed CMA from the Technical SetUps WatchList as shares have fallen too far below their TRIGGER PRICE.

We now have 14 stocks which we will be watching for a possible breakout here.

One stock in particular is ZTS. It has solid ranks, decent fundamentals, and actually traded higher yesterday with an increase in volume as the broader market sold off.

No one has to wait for me to issue any type of alert. Any trading above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have this set up confirming a BUY signal up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

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.

NOTE: If you would like to be notified via email or text message when one of these stocks breaks out, make sure you are on the BreakOuts Alerts list here.

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