  • How To Pick Winner Stocks Using Vedic Astrology

    Here I am going to reveal a two-step process I use to select stocks for investing. This simple process does not pick all of the winners of the stock market. But the stocks it picks have a very high probability of becoming the stock market leaders at one time or the other. If one invests in these stocks using some kind of technical analysis such as MACD (Moving Average Convergence Divergence) on a weekly chart, one can achieve much better performance than the market averages.

    Here are the two rules. Both the rules should be present in the astro-chart to select a stock. To see how an astro-chart is made, please go to my website

    1. A planet present in the first house of the astro-chart should either be first house lord, or first house star lord or Yogi planet.

    In other words there should be a planet in the ascendant, and it should be ascendant lord or Sookshma lord of the ascendant or yogi planet (as defined by Seshadri Iyer). If the ascendant star lord or yogi planet is also strong Sign-wise, the stock becomes market leader quickly. Also note that the longitude of this planet should ideally be very close to the ascendant degree, but the planet cannot be more than 15 degrees away from the ascendant longitude. For example, if the ascendant is 4 degrees of Leo, the longitude of the planet should be less than 19 degrees in Leo. Or if the ascendant is 18 degrees of Capricorn, the longitude of the planet should be more than 3 degrees in Capricorn.

    2. There should be a connection between Jupiter and Saturn in the chart.

    In other words either Jupiter should aspect Saturn, or Saturn should aspect Jupiter, or both the planets should aspect each other, or they should be present in each other's Sign. Please note that I am talking about aspects used in Vedic Astrology. Here also, the longitude difference between the two planets is very important. Smaller the difference, better it is, but it should not be more than 15 degrees.

    Here are the winners of the past from a list of 500 astro-charts I studied.

    Google, Inc. GOOG. 8/19/2004, 6:30AM, PDT, Mountain view, CA.

    Leo ascendant (2:34), its lord Sun is in the first house (2:58). Saturn (Gemini 28:08) aspects Jupiter (Leo 28:17).

    Amazon, AMZN. 5/15/1997, 6:30AM, PDT, Seattle, WA.

    Taurus Ascendant (17:41), its lord Venus, who is also Yogi in the first house (12:07). Saturn in Pisces (21:52) and Jupiter is Capricorn (27:06).

    Stericycle, Inc. SRCL. 8/23/1996, 8:30AM, CDT, Lake Forest, IL. This stock, although not well known, produced a gain of 30 times between 2000 and 2012.

    Virgo ascendant (3:38), its lord Mercury is in the first house (4:05). Saturn (Pisces 12:33) aspects Jupiter (Sagittarius 14:12).

    Apple Inc, AAPL. 12/12/1980, 6:30AM, PST, San Francisco, CA.

    Scorpio Ascendant (22:41), its ascendant star lord Mercury is in the first house (26:49). The Yogi Sun (27:10) is also in the first house. Saturn in Virgo (14:59) conjuncts Jupiter (14:00).

    Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, REGN. 4/2/1991, 9:30AM, EST, Tarrytown, NY.

    Gemini Ascendant (2:48), its ascendant star lord Mars is in the first house (6:02). Saturn in Capricorn (11:31) aspects Jupiter in Cancer (9:49). Note, both Saturn and Jupiter are strong also.

    Texas Instruments, TXN. 10/1/1953, 9:00AM, CDT, Dallas, TX.

    Libra Ascendant (4:55), Yogi Mercury in the first house (2:11). Jupiter in Gemini (2:57) aspects exalted Saturn in Libra (4:16).

    There are many more examples, such as ISRG, PCYC, SSYS, EQIX, MDVN, INTC, CONN, BIDU, HPQ, DLTR, V, MLNX, MNST, CRM, TROW, DAR, RRC etc. I will let the readers test them out themselves.

    I must add that this method, as any other method, also fails once in a while. One example is ZNGA. It has not performed so far. But who knows, it can thrive in future. The stocks like PCYC, MDVN, REGN also remained dormant for years and years until the Biotech sector started blossoming.

    Here is a list of relatively new stocks, which passes both the tests. You may invest in them keeping in mind your investment style and using some timing method such as moving averages.

    Tesla Motors (TSLA), Kohlberg Kravis (KKR), Nationstar Mortgage (NSM), Yelp inc. (YELP) and Twitter (TWTR).

    Disclosure: I am long TSLA, CRM, AAPL, NSM, KKR.

  • Ten Stocks For 2014

    I gave a list of ten stocks for 2013 on December 1, 2012. This list was based solely on the strength of transiting Saturn. I selected those stocks, which have strong Saturn in the astro-charts of the stocks. Here is how they performed during the period December 1, 2012 to November 29,2013.

    Stock SymbolPrice on 12/1/212Price on 12/1/2013Dividend EarnedGain/Loss

    AVERAGE 63%

    An average of 63% is much better than the S&P500 average of 26%, and is a testament to the usefulness of my analysis of stock charts based on astrology. I am now going to offer a similar list of 10 stocks for 2014. Since Saturn remains exalted until October 2014, I am going to stick with this list with a few changes. This is because I have studied more astro-charts of stocks, and found better stocks that have strong Saturn in the natal charts and running sub-periods of Saturn. I am dropping NFLX simply because it has gone too far too fast. I am going to stay with YHOO, LEN, F, MA and STX. I am going to replace other five stocks with KKR, MU, RRC, CSIQ and NSM. Since some of the new stocks were running Saturn sub-period last year, they have already advanced in price. One should therefore be careful to buy at these levels.

    Thus my ten stocks for 2014 are: Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (NYSE:KKR), Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU), Range Resources Corp (NYSE:RRC), Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ), Nationstar Mortgage (NYSE:NSM), Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO), Lennar Corp (NYSE:LEN), Ford Motor (NYSE:F), Master Card (NYSE:MA) and Seagate Techn (NASDAQ:STX).

    Another interesting point to note is that Jupiter is also entering its sign of exaltation in June 2014, and will remain exalted for about one year. Therefore I will come up another list of stocks, which have strong Jupiter in their natal charts.

  • Ten Stocks For 2013

    People generally use fundamental analysis or technical analysis for selecting stocks. I have developed yet another way of analyzing stocks for investing. I study astrological charts of the stocks. These charts are based on the planetary positions of the day a stocks starts trading on a stock exchange. I do not intend to give the details of this method here, as the interested people can go to my website and study the methodology.

    I know that the general American people are very skeptical of astrology. I therefore urge them to give me a chance to prove that astrology really works in the hands of an experienced astrologer, particularly for selecting stocks. Nature has provided us a tool in the form of planetary motion, and I think that we should use it instead of ignoring it. Before writing anything on this blog, I have thoroughly back tested my methods. People who do not want to believe in Astrology can still use this selection in conjunction with their own technical or fundamental analysis, although my selection is solely based on astrology.

    Coming back to planets, it is important to note that the planet Saturn is transiting through the sign of Libra during the entire year of 2013. In Libra Saturn becomes very strong. To utilize this strength I have selected stocks, which have strong Saturn in the birth chart. This gave me a list of about 50 stocks out of my collection of about 300 charts. I have shortened this list further to a list of 10 stocks, which are also undergoing the sub-period of Saturn. When a chart undergoes the sub-period of a planet, it becomes sensitive to the strengths and weaknesses of the planet in birth chart and in transition. Thus these 10 stocks have sensitive and strong Saturn, and this Saturn is also strong in transit. This three-way strength of Saturn gives me confidence to say that these stocks would do well in the year 2013.

    Here is the list: YHOO (Yahoo), RAX (Rackspace), NFLX (Netflix), TCAP (Triangle Corp), LLY (Ely Lilly Pharmaceuticals), LEN (Lennar Corp), F (Ford Motor), PMT (PennyMac Mortgage), STX (Seagate) and MA (Master card).

    These stocks come from different segments of the market therefore constitute a well-diversified portfolio. Investors can do their own due diligence to time the buying and selling.

    Disclosure: I am long YHOO.

    Additional disclosure: I own all all of these stocks except F, MA and RAX. I may initiate a position in any one of them within 72 hours.
