  • CTI BioPharma set for gap up at the open  [View news story]
    5 analysts -
    low 12 mo TP=4
    high TP = 6 (piper jaffray and 1 more I believe)
    If at 4 vs cur @2.64= 50%
    First LT bear trend line at 3.5
    Today above the down trending 50 DMAL @2.61
    Next bull indicator is a CLOSE above the
    uptrending 200DMAL @2.88.
    Lack of any increase of volume is suspect.
    But - With recent addition of a 6th sell side analyst
    maybe some new blood from institutions will get in the game come
    as price eats through the overhead resistance (big selling volume) between 4.2 and 4.3/sh only 8-9 months ago

  • Franklin Resources: An Overlooked Dividend Growth Stock To Consider  [View article]
    Since 2004, the SDY has significantly out performed BEN assuming a DRIP and the resulting Average Annual total Return. Based on the fact that SDY is a diversified portfolio of quality growing dividend paying equities, my guess is that the volatility of price changes is less than that of the shares of BEN.

  • Bull Market Crosses The 2,000 Day Mark  [View article]
    Please define a bullor bear market in terms of days up or down - or percent of inderx change upor down?
    Also "just for fun or controversy sake", how many bull and bear market periods bottomed out and /or and peaked out during Republican and Democratic POTUS
    Since in some cases there is overlap in terms of different POTUS terms, this could be noted.

  • Rally to take a breather at the open  [View news story]
    QQQ to new highs
    while QQQX a trend of two lower Highs during same two months.
    DJ a lower high
    SPX So far a lower High
    IWM a lower high and still below both the 50 and 200 DMAL but only a few weeks ago squeaked out a higher high
    Next 2-3 days might have some "fundamental" revelations to give a rational excuse for Technical Implications.

  • Quiet Excellence For This Dividend ETF  [View article]
    Using the DividendChannel Drip Returns Calculator, VIG significantly out performs SDY as well as DHS since the inception of VIG and the inception of DHS respectively. The Average Annual Total Return assuming use of DRIP since inception of DHS was 5.57% vs 7.83% for SDY. VIG even more significantly outperformed SDY since inception of VIG for an even longer period of time.
    This calculator is VERY easy to use and can be used to measure comparative DRIP Total Returns for Stocks vs ETFs and mutual funds over various periods of time.
    Taking advantage of the power of compounding and "dollar cost averaging".

  • High-Yield BDCs For Q3 2014: Part 3  [View article]
    Chuckleh: I use the Wells Trade (brokerage side) of WF which once offered (no longer - I am grandfathered in) 100 free trades per year. Obviously 30/month allows more flexibility. Do you like their order desk on-line access and services for those looking for self directed - and is the premium program based on $size of assets?

  • Death Cross For S&P 500 And Russell 2000 Taking Place  [View article]
    To what extent does the author - and or one or more of you - who use technical analysis including a combination of the Death Crosses (and presumably Bull Cross of macro indexes and or sectors - 50 DMAL moving above 200 DMAL) in conjunction with the use of the RSI moving above 70 and below 30 to help with the timing, identification and price of initiating and exiting portfolio, sector and or individual equity positions?

  • Top Performing Stocks Year-To-Date  [View article]
    I Browsed through the 1 and 3 year charts of BOTH the winners and losers and came away with a "conclusion":
    Only Knowing with certain what happened (more often than not) in that past might lead one to conclude that the RSI levels - below 30 and above 70 - have in the past been quite timely in creating buy and sell "signals" when the short term prices momentum levels are at historic extreme levels and an opportunity presents itself to investors who have fundamentally selected potential investment opportunities to initiate or add to positions (if and when RSI Levels are at or below 30) and take profits or liquidate positions if and when the RSI levels exceed 70.

    I find that the actual buy or sell actions can best be completed on the sell side AS the RSI drops back below the 70 level and the Buys can best be completed AS the RSI moves back above the 30 level.
    Obviously size of actual or pending position and liquidity of the shares are important factors to help guide the timing of the transactions.

  • Emerging Market ETFs Ascend A Great Wall Of Worry  [View article]
    Where is RSX on your emerging markets "buy em when no one wants them"?
    Do you use the RSI indicator to help "see" when FUNDAMENTALLY attractive (or UN attractive) ETFs are "relatively" over bought (or over sold) based on short term momentum moves?
    Use the past 3 years StockCharts, and with few exceptions, and note good selling opportunities appeared when the RSI on GLD and EDV approached and exceeded the >70 level - and were pretty good BUYS when the RSI approached and/or went below the <30 level. Using trailing stop orders to sell on strength and buy on weakness when the RSI shows this short term levels. Might help investors use technicals to fine tune their fundamental selection process.

  • Industry Ranks August 2014  [View article]
    It appears that using the RSI levels on the StockCharts graphs - buying and adding when the RSI is below 30 and selling and taking profits when the RSI is above 70 might be complimentary to your selection process.
    Thus, sorting stocks in your 22 industries when their RSI was below 30 might help
    your followers time their investments when momentum was at or near a relatively weak level.
    To what extent do you use any technical indicators to help you with the timing of your entry to and or exits from fundamentally selected sectors and specific stocks?

  • Hunting For Bears  [View article]
    Excellent article. Being retired, I look to own dividend paying companies and ETFs using DRIP to compound the dividend returns in our tax sheltered IRAs. I use the Drip Dividend calculator on the Dividend Channel site to compare the Returns of SDY versus individual stocks and ETFs since the well known "top" of the first decade stock market in mid 2007 assuming that SDY has a well known and reasonably good track record to use as a "benchmark" to match or beat.
    For example, of 54 Business Development Companies (BDCs) I track, the only ETFs for this sector are BIZD, down 7% and BDCS, down 15% - not (yet) 20% - from their 52 week highs. The dividend payouts of BDCs should be considered "business man's risk" dividends. Of the 10 (of 54) BDCs which are down more than 20% from their 52 week highs, only one has been in business since the Highs of June 2007: TAXI. The Annual Average Total Return (AATR) of TAXI since 6/1/2007 using the DRIP calculator provided 7.63% vs 5.54% for the SDY.
    Another example: I used this DRIP calculator to compare a well know health care company BMY which is currently down "only" 14% from its 52 week high. The AATR of BMY since 6/1/2007 has been 11.7% vs the 5.54% of the SDY.
    Of all the ETFs which emphasize dividend income in their names, only 5 match or exceed the above mentioned AATR of SDY: DON,VIG, FVD, VTI, DTN.

  • Incredible Shrinking Yields  [View article]
    It might be of interest to learn if Bespoke can provide data and or information which addresses the globally growing opinion as Wilbur Ross referenced less than 2 months ago (June 22) on CNN of an impending Sovereign Debt Bubble.
    What with China's continuing growing debt and declining GDP growth rates and increased financing of the building of entire new cities of totally empty residential and commercial buildings (last week's 60 Minutes and recent Charlie Rose interview of Jim Chanos), It might be "of interest" to BESPOKE readers to consider data which helps readers to better understand the potential risks of the opportunities to invest "cash".

  • CTI BioPharma's (CTIC) CEO Jim Bianco on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript  [View article]
    Based on the 5 sell side analysts who cover CTIC, they have provided 12-18nmo price targets ranging from 4 to 6 which - based on a current closing price of 2.50 suggests a return of 60% to 140%. In July of last year 2013 the price was around 1.00 per share. Thus in a year's time it has already been up 150%. - still has another 60 to 140% to go based on 5 different independent analysts with 5 different financial valuation assumptions. So far none indicate it is overvalued. For those who are willing to look back a year or so, look up the initial remarks of the Globally well regarded and Highly acclaimed Neurological Cancer specialist MD who was invited to serve the company as Chief Medical Advisor. He seems to have come aboard willing to put his name and reputation working with a company he feels is destined to be in the right place at the right time. And this was last year. The company continues to progress forward. Yes, I have been an owner of shares for more than a year.
