Entering Long McDonald’s ($MCD)

AlphaCapture

McDonald’s ($MCD) $MCD has been on the radar since the major advance on 3/11 first indicated the downtrend from the April 2013 high may be over, and after a quick retracement an equally swift resumption of the intermediate uptrend followed. Last week saw an attempt to take out the November and August 2013 highs, and …

Review Of Open Positions

AlphaCapture

I normally separate the futures and stocks reviews, but given we’re down to the lowest number of stock positions since building up a complete portfolio around this time last year, I figured I’d take a look at everything together for a complete overview. That, and I’m on vacation, so I’m in reflective mood. We trend-followers …

Exiting Long $BKW, $BRCM

AlphaCapture

Friday’s weakness saw two more trailing stops breached, triggering exits in $BKW and $BRCM for Monday’s open. As of Friday’s close they were showing returns of +19.0% and -3.0% respectively. Long $BKW 11/1 +19.0% (incl 11/6 div $0.07, 2/24 $0.07) $BKW had been in a seemingly relentless uptrend and with the recent market weakness has started to pull back. …

Exiting Long TASER Intl ($TASR)

AlphaCapture

A relief rally in the market lifted many of our names today having earlier in the session seen $BKW and $RAD retest their trailing stop levels, but by the close we had one new exit signal with $TASR breaching its trailing stop. I thought it was interesting that although many names that had recently suffered …

AlphaCapture

We exited $UA and $EBAY this morning as per Friday’s exit signals for returns of +72.3% and -5.9% respectively, and tonight we have four more for tomorrow in $ACT +55.6%, $AAP +11.3%, $PGTI -3.3%, and $TYC -2.6%. We also came close to exits in $TASR -5.9% which just survives following a very marginal break of …

Exiting Long $UA, $EBAY

AlphaCapture

The rout in high growth traditional momentum names continues, and it now appears to be spreading to holdouts like $UA, and latecomers to the party like $EBAY which had been underperforming for a while before Carl Icahn brought it back on everyone’s radar. Both have now triggered exits for us which we’ll execute at Monday’s …

Entering Long EXCO Resources ($XCO)

AlphaCapture

EXCO Resources ($XCO) This was on our Stocks To Watch list over the weekend and it’s followed through beautifully so far this week, climbing to 5-month highs today. The recent increase in volume, although not always necessary in many of our setups, is particularly welcome here when we’re potentially reversing a long-term downtrend and confirming a bottom …

Stocks to Watch

AlphaCapture

Here are some setups I like. I don’t currently have a position in any of them. It’s interesting to note the dominant sector themes here. Other than that, no commentary, just charts:- $AEP   $AZO   $BHI   $CAT   $CLR   $D   $DTE   $DVN   $GLW   $HOLI   $NEE   $NI …
