  • Exxon Mobil: Jim Chanos Vs. Warren Buffett, Which One Is Right? [View article]
    Call it what you may, timing, guessing, whatever you opine... by following a simple indicator system I designed, mainly for the purpose of avoiding huge drawdowns and buying into the so-called great company's to early in a move, my simple system (combining prior 8 week Relative Strength with a modified version of MACD and 2 weekly moving average crossovers) gave me the signal on 11/1 (pre Buffet announcement) to buy XOM... so being the disciplined investor that I have become in following my system I mechanically bought XOM... up 6% on a straight purchase since then. I will not stubbornly hold the stock into infinity... I will sell when given the signal to do so. The days of "buy and forget about it" are unfortunately dead. Whether it is WMT or XOM, given the speed of information today it is all to common to experience a mega cap company get driven down 10% or more in a very short period. Go Warren... Chanos, who cares...

  • Ugly Charts [View article]
    GLD has weak support at the current level, stronger at +(-)124 then it's on down to +(-)98... personally I wouldn't try to catch this knife... it will "dead cat bounce" and draw many back in but will most likely require several months to build a sustainable bottom from which to emerge...

  • What's Wrong With This Picture? [View article]
    ... they always do (come back in) just when they think all is safe and the market has regained the highs... why? Because they don't want to miss out on all the gains their "friends" are making... and just when all of them get back in and are all comfortable, just when they think it's safe, what generally begins to happen? Fortunately they are not all back in just yet... still plenty of buyers buying the dips and pushing it higher... but as they begin to dry up... watch for the signs. This "bull" is 46 months old now... pushing the normal limits of longivity...

  • 2 DIY Dividend Stocks To Buy And 3 DIY Dividend Stocks To Avoid [View article]
    Main has signaled a moderate buy on both the daily and weekly charts on my system as of today. Caveat... it is on less than average volume which is a weaker signal than I like to act on... so it may be prudent to watch it a day or two. Should volume increase to above the 50 day average on this move it might be a good time to consider an entry.

    According to the system I use MAIN went on a daily sale signal on 10/9/12, and it looks as if it may flash a sale signal on the weekly chart this week unless things suddenly improve. Looks like 28.72+ (-) may be the floor this cycle. Unless things get really ugly before this correction is over. And under the 28.72 number there is fairly strong support around 27.90. But that is only if the support holds. MAIN continues to show steady accumulation. MAIN has been trending in a channel since 10/10 no indication as yet as to the direction of the breakout. Good luck.

    My sentiments exactly... and I feel if Obama should be re-elected this will definately play an even stronger role in volatility of securities that have seen big run-ups over the past few years.

  • Expect Mellanox Technologies' 3rd Quarter Earnings To Shine [View article]
    My model flashed a sale on this issue on 9/7/12 at that Friday's close of 110.85... I suppose "reading the tea leaves" it points to the indusry weakness going forward...

    Take a look at my comment above (24, Aug), in addition, just follow a simple indicator like MACD for assistance in making buy/sell calls. Let it (the indicator) lead and take the emotion out of the decision process. My results improved dramatically by doing so.

    Just a quick follow-up to my comment on MAIN yesterday, regarding the effects of the high short interest and the bounce from technical support at around $25.00, MAIN is up from yesterdays low over 5%... I got in yesterday at 25.05 and MAIN is trading now at 26.19. I will watch my technical indicators closely for the exit should it show signs of weakening.

    I agree with your earlier assessment of MAIN... however take a look at the current chart, MAIN has corrected down to major support at $25 (Dn approx 11% from recent high)and has accumulated a short interest days to cover of over 6 days... at the moment the money flow is weak for this issue... but when that begins to reverse (which may be soon) MAIN should make a nice jump for no other reason than short covering... thanks for all your great articles... I really enjoy them.

  • This Cheap $7 Stock Is Well Positioned For The Coming Mobile Advertising Tsunami [View article]
    Velt held trend resistance at + (-) 7.10 last Fri. while filling a price gap that was created at the open on the (14th) Tue. before. As of yesterday Velt broke through and held substantial overhead resistance at the 7.50/7.60 level. Short interest at the end of July was a whoping 17.5 days to cover... this stock is sitting on "rocket fuel"... just watch it over the next 90 days...

    Like all good doctors say... it's important to consistently take your meds... and any good analyst should be aware of this... just take a look at the (so-called) leaders of several of the countries sitting on vast oil reserves for a good example of what can happen to a person when they stray from their regular medications... I'm terrified just guessing where it may be tomorrow... much less 12 months from now...
