Entering Long $FISV

AlphaCapture

Long Fiserv ($FISV) A classic breakout and entry signal for me. This is a stock in a long-term uptrend, emerging from a period of consolidation to resume its trend higher, and it’s been done emphatically with a post-earnings move on huge volume closing at the highs of the session. You really can’t ask for any …

Two more exits triggered from today’s rollercoaster session; trailing stops on $EVR and $ETN, which as of Monday’s close were showing a profit of 34.5% and 2.1% respectively.

I made some remarks this morning that despite the attempts at a bounce in bonds, gold, and the continued rally in stocks, the move that really caught my eye, and that seemed to attract little attention elsewhere, was in Oil. For those that have been following this blog you will know crude has been something …

Entering Long Stryker ($SYK), CR Bard ($BCR), Alexion ($ALXN)

AlphaCapture

Here are three more longs we’ll be entering at Monday’s open. As I mentioned in this weekend’s review of open positions, we’ve had a flurry of new entries in the last week or so, a reflection of how many opportunities exist with a number of stocks in strong uptrends and attractive risk/reward setups. For two …

Entering Long Adobe Systems ($ADBE)

AlphaCapture

We’ll be adding a long in $ADBE at Wednesday’s open, bringing us up to 26 open positions. It’s interesting this is the first new equity position for over a month, possibly a reflection of the fact that although many of our existing ideas continue to work, we hadn’t been finding many new opportunities. Until now …
