Selling Pressure Fading

 

This is an excerpt from Cabot Top Ten Trader, which features the best trades to make every week.  Designed for experienced investors who want even more great growth stock ideas, this advisory recommends the best 10 stocks each month for short-term investment by aggressive investors.

Last Friday saw a big, broad selloff in the market, not unlike what we’ve seen a few times so far this year.  But, interestingly, while those other selloffs lasted a few days, this one might not—the market snapped back vigorously today. 

All of this is short-term stuff, of course; the overall trend is still generally sideways and few stocks are running away on the upside, so we’re not suggesting it’s time to become fully invested. But we’re seeing evidence that selling pressures are fading, which, if earnings season goes well, could launch a sustained advance.

This week’s list has a nice mix of charts; some are super-strong, some are tight after prior advances. Our Top Pick is a company with as big a growth story as you’ll find and a chart that’s showing strength after a long decline.  Stick with a small position and expect volatility.

Finding Investing Heroes

By Paul Goodwin on April 17, 2015

In the investment world, I’d caution any beginning investor that a story from someone who has made a fortune may not be a reliable roadmap for replicating their success. You wouldn’t, for instance, go out and buy a lottery ticket because you’ve read a glowing account of some bozo who used his wife’s measurements and the number of letters in his daughters’ names to pick the winning numbers.Read More >
