Alert HQ rocket stock - Sanmina up again despite down market

For those of you have downloaded the Alert HQ BUY and SELL signals recently, you may have noticed that Sanmina-SCI Corporation (SANM) was on the alert list based on weekly data back on August 16 and again this past weekend

I have been eyeing this stock since it popped up on the list the first time. It had a beaten down share price whose recent rally generated the TradeRadar BUY signal. Apparently, many other investors are also taking notice and buying with enthusiasm. It has attracted the attention of Barron's Tech Trader Daily blog. Writer Eric Savitz had the following to say (I include the entire post as it is rather brief):

"There sure are a lot of people piling into Sanmina-SCI (SANM) shares. But there’s still no obvious reason for the move.

A I noted last week, the contract electronics manufacturer’s shares have been on an absolute tear.

To review: On July 14, the stock his a 14-year low at $1.07, and has been climbing relentlessly ever since. The initial spur for the stock was the company’s July 15 announcement that June quarter results were ahead of expectations; the actual results were reporting a week later, along with a plan for a reverse stock split. (Somewhere between 1-for-3 and 1-for-10, the company said.)

Since then, it has been off to the races. Today, the stock is up 20 cents, or 8.5%, to $2.55. In the last four days alone, the stock is up 25%. Since its bottom in July, the shares have gained 138%. One commenter on the previous post theorized that that the company might be a target for rival Flextronics (FLEX), which today happens to be off 25 cents, or 2.8%, to $8.67. That seems like a reasonable explanation for the move; whether anything is actually going on I have no idea."

The rapid ascent of SANM is clearly visible in the following chart. Note also the cross-over of the 20-day moving average over the 50-day moving average, typically a very bullish development.

Chart of SANM
With a puny Price/Sales ratio of 0.12 and PEG ratio of 0.65, the company is sporting numbers like a value stock, not a tech stock. Despite a closing price today of only $2.62, the company is no micro-cap; its market capitalization is $1.39B. The company is now free cash flow positive. It is also nearing the end of a restructuring phase and embarking on increasing capacity in India.

The recent rally leaves SANM clearly in over-bought territory but the company would be pretty tempting on a pull-back.

Running TradeRadar on Windows 7 and Windows 8

Development of the original TradeRadar Stock Inspector software was begun back in the days before Windows 7 and Windows 8 were available.

As these newer versions of Windows have become more popular, we have heard from some users that they are having problems installing and running TradeRadar on their newer PCs.

The good news is that TradeRadar will work just fine on Windows 7 and Windows 8. All you have to do is adjust the Windows Compatibility Settings to ensure TradeRadar runs as intended.

It is recommended that you can apply Compatibility Settings when running the initial installation; however, it is also possible to apply Compatibility Settings after the program has been installed.

Prior to installation
After downloading the install program, go to the folder where you have stored the TradeRadarStkInsp_7_Setup.exe or TradeRadarStkInsp_7_PRO_Setup.exe executable. Right-click on the executable file and select Properties. Click the Compatibility tab. Adjust the Compatibility mode to …

Durable Goods report for Sept just so-so but Computer segment is on fire

The Durable Goods advanced report for September 2011 was released on Wednesday.

I like to dig into the Durable Goods report because it can be useful for seeing how tech in aggregate is performing and how the sector may perform in the future. I always focus on two particular measures: shipments and new orders. Let's see how it played out last month.

Shipments -- 

I generally give less importance to Shipments since this is a backward looking measure reflecting orders that have been confirmed, manufactured and shipped. It's similar to earnings reports -- it's good to know but the data is in the past and we're more interested in the future. The following chart shows how September shipments looked for the overall tech sector:


Results for the overall tech sector were a bit weak but take a look at the next chart which tracks the Computers and related products segment:


Results here were actually quite good and, to make things even better, the previous month was revised upward.

Alert HQ has moved!

End of an era!

This site was started way back in 2006/2007 to showcase my blog posts and the Alert HQ buy signals and sell signals. Alert HQ grew to include other kinds of stock alerts including Swing Signals, Trend Busters, Trend Leaders, Cash Flow Kings and more.

In the meantime, I built a sister site, TradingStockAlerts.com and I started using some of the same Alert HQ content over there. As a result, I am discontinuing the Alert HQ data here at Trade-Radar.com

The good news, however, is that all the Alert HQ signals and stock screens are still completely free. In addition, the pages have been enhanced so that you can hover over a stock symbol and a small chart will pop up so you can get a quick look at the stock's recent price action. If you click on a symbol it will take you to a page with plenty of financial and technical analysis information (still free!) as well as a larger chart that you can play with in terms of adding or deleting indicators, moving averages, etc.
