Weekend Winners and Losers - Alert HQ BUY and SELL signals for July 17, 2009

Each week we scan about 7300 stocks and ETFs, checking fundamentals, performing technical analysis and looking for fresh BUY and SELL signals. Out of this process we generate the following lists:
  • Alert HQ stock alerts - based on a combination of proprietary and standard technical analysis techniques, we identify stocks or ETFs that are undergoing reversals, either to the upside or to the downside
  • Trend Leaders - a collection of stocks in strong up-trends
  • Cash Flow Kings whose free cash flow yield is 25% or greater
  • Bollinger Band Breakouts - stocks or ETFs that have moved at least 3% above their upper Bollinger Band or at least 3% below their lower Bollinger Band
  • Swing Signals - stocks that have bounced off a higher or lower Bollinger Band
  • Trend Busters - stocks or ETFs that have violated a current trend.
The view from Alert HQ --

You really can't complain about this week in the stock market. With positive comments from Meridith Whitney, great earnings from Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Intel and IBM and jobless claims down below 600K a second week in a row, there were good reasons for stocks to rally. The surprise is that this weeks gains completely undid the prior four week's losses.

As a result, our signals showed a strong tendency towards bullishness. The Trend Leaders list increased steadily all week long. In our Swing Signals and Bollinger Band Breakouts lists the BUY signals overwhelmingly outnumbered the SELL signals. Our Trend Busters are somewhat muted but they are showing a tilt toward bullishness as well.

Having gotten off to a good start, we'll see if this earnings season can keep up the pace of good news and keep stock market sentiment positive. In the meantime, if you were a buyer earlier in the week, we don't see any reasons why you shouldn't continue to hold on.
