Exit Long $MCD

AlphaCapture

Exit Long $MCD 4/15 -1.5% (incl 5/29 div $0.81) $MCD had briefly looked like it was about to stem the tide and resume its path higher, but the weakness of the last two days now has the look of something more than just a consolidation and was enough to take out our trailing stop fairly cleanly today, triggering an …

Long Baxter Intl ($BAX)

AlphaCapture

Long Baxter Intl ($BAX) A solid move to all time highs by $BAX today, triggering a long signal. Strictly speaking the breakout was actually Wednesday with a marginal new high, but given the weakness in the broader market today this was an impressive follow-through and confirmation of that breakout, also coming on increased volume. Short-term …

Exit Long $MOS

AlphaCapture

Long $MOS 3/6 -3.3% (incl 6/3 div $0.25) Mosaic has done very little over 4 months, with several false starts beyond the initial breakout that first triggered an entry signal. The most recent attempt to move higher did at least allow the stop to be ratcheted up to a higher level, one which has now been taken out cleanly …

Exit Long $DD

AlphaCapture

Long $DD 5/29 -4.6% Disappointing guidance from Dupont was enough to send it straight through our trailing stop and trigger an exit signal. It had briefly continued higher for a week or so after our entry at the end of May, but before today’s slump had already started to lag the market, having been unable to recover its …

Long Ford ($F)

AlphaCapture

Long Ford ($F) Ford has been on my watch list for some time, and for shorter timeframes and less stringent criteria it could easily have triggered an entry prior to this, but it now has all the conditions for what I believe is a very favorable risk/reward trade. Today’s close marked an 8-month high, continuing …
