Exit Long $SRE, $UNP, $PPG

AlphaCapture

We’re staying another night in Stop City having received three more exit signals. It’s more of the same really, all trailing stops for small wins and losses. That was a huge one day move in the market, but as big as it was, in the context of the length and magnitude of trends we typically …

Exit Long $CMS

AlphaCapture

It’s not for me to speculate the reasons behind any market move or whether anything is justified or not, but  I find it interesting that those that do, have glossed over the fact in the recent weakness ‘defensive’ names have acted anything but defensively. In fact, they’ve been leading to the downside. Of course, those …

Exit Long $AIG, $CL

AlphaCapture

First off I should note that I’ve had a handful of entry signals in the last couple of weeks that I haven’t been documenting here in my usual manner. This is part of the adjustment I need to make on what I publish now that I am managing client money. I still haven’t finalized exactly …

Exit Long $BF.B

AlphaCapture

Long $BF.B 5/19 -0.3% (incl 6/2 div $0.29) $BF.B had initially continued to edge higher after our entry, but it’s since pulled back over the last 4-5 weeks. The pullback in percentage terms is minimal, but it’s been enough to take out its 20 and 50-day MA’s and close below a trailing stop to trigger an exit for a …

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 …
