  • Market Indicators Hit Historic Highs [View article]
    Awesome charts. You are 50% short of what since Dec 2014? Where is the divergence between your indicators and the markets, what time frame are you looking at? Why you showing a daily chart since 1972 when you can show a monthly chart and remove all the noise?
    You say 10/20% correction but there is no evidence that is the statistic. Similar to saying 61.8% retracement. It looks like that everyday and the markets have been only going higher higher and investors have been investing less and less.

    Looking at it prudentially- Less money has flowed into the markets in 2014/2015 as in 2009/2013 because statistics say historic bull cycles are 5 years. Again that is historic and the present is constantly changing. No one saw such monetary policy, no one saw the subprime mortgage crisis. No one saw Mario draghi, BOJ, boc all doing QE.

    The economy is healing a healthy correction is due everyone knows it but no one can time it.
    Next crisis is a QE crisis! Please show us the correlations of the factors of QE vs stock movements.

    I still love the charts but since you dont give a timeframe for this correction the information is not useful. I could tell you the following:
    If the Dow falls below 17600 on the monthly chart and confirms this position after a month then it will fall to 15857/15306 a healthy 11/14% correction.

    Then it will rise to 20171,32%within a period of 12 months.
    As of today it is range bound on a daily chart, bouncing of the lower trendline.
    There is a divergence between US and European equity as half the money has flowed out of US equity into European, mostly German equity, see the money inflow in European index ETFs.

    There is so much congestion at the top that a fall should be expected but with the right triggers- interest rate hikes differed to Dec, Greece bailout plan affirmation we should see a huge jump on the other hand the indexes will fall like a rock.

    The S&P 500 on a monthly chart has shot straight up since Oct 2011 and that trendline has been tested and not broken so is it going to correct then it would need to fall below 2042 and confirm that the next month for it fall towards 2004/ 1904 a 6 to 10% correction.

    It all makes sense depending on the horizon that ones playing field provides.
    On a daily chart with all the noise the S&P looks poised to rise to 2120/2130 as long as it does not close below 2074 then it would fall to 2035/1990.

    What do you think?

  • Intel And Micron: The Purple Swan [View article]
    If anyone is buying MU they need to price this monster growth as described above, none of the analysts are talking about it, it looks like a seeking alpha secret, our secret. The price targets have not been hiked just the contrary. Are we trying to fool ourselves? I bought a 1000 shares today as I like the chart and expect a 10% move leading upto the quarterly results, dont expect it to fall further (could be fooling myself) from a chart technicians perspective, huge volume yesterday and read everything about MU before making my investment decision. This article did play/pay an important part of my decision making process. Was hoping for an abandoned baby chart pattern to emerge but that dream has been shot out. As of now long MU as long as it does not fall below 23.50 USD then it could fall more but the probability that it will rise towards 26 where it has horizontal resistance. Major support at 21 USD. The markets are waiting for a trigger and these patents, pending outcomes of court cases are all fuel, hopefully for the upside. Awesome article but got to look at everything with a pinch of salt as otherwise we would all be fools, and fools part with their money quickly and hold on too loss making investments for ever like me at times.

  • Apple To $140: Making Higher Highs And Higher Lows; Funds Desperately Want Back In [View article]
    I think he got lucky with some prediction and considers himself a guru sad! I look at charts and think before 140 134 is ample resistance and to break that you need a huge surge which would either be due to some new Apple related news or overall market surge fed takes interest rate rise of the table this year or Greek debt settlement. Any which Apple on the chart is moving towards 127 before anywhere. No prediction just chart analysis with a probability that I am wrong. Took profit at 132.

    Why you taking profits? Resistance is at 134.74 or 133.67 USD. Is it because if everyone is taking profit at these figures it will not hit them? Get out now and buy the dip at 129.34? Correct me but it does certainly look like a breakout with confirmation above past resistance at 130.58, opening up next level targets in two days or until Thursday of 134.74.

  • A High Dividend Stock Yielding Over 8%, With 28% Dividend Growth And More Growth Ahead [View article]
    Without bothering to look at a chart I would guess the chart on this stock has no volume and has a big spread between bid and ask. But still the author points it out as a high dividend play with high risk.
    As long as there is gap growth transporters will make money and these shippers are high stable cash flow so long as there are no ships sinking business as usual.
    What the author did not bother to mention is that in this industry everyone pays out big dividends...

  • Apple Stock: Affirming My $140 Target By The End Of May [View article]
    i give up, cannot read all the messages, just the articles. 140 USD BASED on what metric. 9.7% upside in 15 days, that is so ambitious that it will not happen. 134 is huge resistance, You probably used a trend channel to get this number. MACD, RSI are down, the stock is trending up but has broken its trendline, the market is currently against Apple and there are a lot of external factors in play and look bleak in the long middle term.
    |paying a 52-cents per share dividend - was down 2.4% for the week at Thursday's close of $125.26.| damn now i understand why i got my shares at the 50 day EMA. I wish it goes up after bouncing off the 50 day EMA, it has but needs confirmation today.

  • Time To Eat Your Apple Pie [View article]
    Bought at the 50 day EMA and will hold.The stock does not stay long under the 50 day ema give or take 1 month. Except from Oct, 2012 where it fell after Steve Jobs death and stayed under the 50 day EMA until July 2013. Currently the stock has been flirting with the 50 day ema and has touched it 3 times since March 2015 and has now stayed 2 days underneath it. THE STOCK IS NOT LOOKING BULLISH AT ALL. Volume spiked before earnings and after earnings the sellers took over. Receding volumes could mean that the selling is over and the stock is settling around 125. If it does not hold 125.80 the 50 day EMA we can see 121.67 USD the 100 day EMA been tested really soon. Horizontal Support is at 120.29 USD resistance at 130 USD.
    Looking back at apple starting April, 2014 the 100 day EMA is a better indicator. The stock bounced back 3 times after touching it. 121.67 USD.
    Today is a stock rally day and Apple and the DJIA are moving hand in hand, above 50 day ema. Great need confirmation Monday to make this rally hold.

  • Here's Why Apple Is Weak Since Earnings [View article]
    Nice points, when you say undervalued I assume you are talking PE. That is very relative to its peers and of lately Apple has been removed from technology and been placed under consumer discretionary companies with the likes of Sony, philips and harman international with PE of 24, 17 and 17. Apple with a PE of 14 seems fairly valued.

    What I don't understand is as an investor what do you mean by buy the dips? What period are you holding for? What kind of investor are you? Dividend, value etc?
    You talk about Carl Icahn, with all due respect he is a rockstar but his own investment co. Missed on the top and bottom line! So just because he and warren Buffett can buy and hold longer than of us does not mean We should buy the companies they own if we cannot buy and hold them forever.
    You say Apple has been the best stock to own over the last 12 months, that is simply not quantified. if you mean companies over 700 billion in market cap yes it is correct. Looking at companies in consumer goods, electronic
    industry then it again incorrect Sony performed better 71% vs 51%.

    If you compare its performance with technology companies apples performance over the last 12 months is average.

    I liked your ideas but without quantifying it's difficult to remove emotion from fact.
