Trend Leaders for Dec 12, 2008 - free list of chart-busting stocks

This post is to announce that Trend Leaders, our latest list of stocks in strong up-trends, is now available at the TradeRadar site.

Readers of the TradeRadar blog are familiar with the Alert HQ free lists of stock alerts. With Alert HQ, we try to identify those stocks and ETFs that are making reversals. Every week we scan all the stocks listed on the NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ, over 6800 securities in all, to find those stocks or ETFs that are generating actionable BUY signals or SELL signals.

As a byproduct of the Alert HQ process we are providing a list of all the stocks or ETFs that are currently in strong up-trends. We call them Trend Leaders and the list is, of course, absolutely free. These stocks are registering strong signals using Aroon analysis, DMI and MACD. They are also above their 50-day exponential moving average.

This week we have 111 stocks that made the cut. This is more that twice the number we had last week. On the economic front, news continued in a bad vein while a number of bellwether companies announced layoffs and reduced their outlook. Then we had the bizarre case of Bernie Madoff and his $50 billion Ponzi scheme. Major averages still managed to avoid a major sell-off and even registered modest gains sufficient to expand our list of Trend Leaders.

Trend Leaders presents those stocks that are bucking the bear market. If your investing style is dependent on trending and momentum, you should be able to easily find a few stocks to add to your watch list or your portfolio.

You can read more and download the free list at the TradeRadar Trend Leaders page.

There are two basic steps to investing. First, you need to find stocks that seem to have some potential. Then you have to determine whether these stocks are actually good investments. There are many stocks that at first glance look interesting, but further research reveals that there are too many negatives to warrant taking a position.

This first post in the series starts at the beginning: getting good investment ideas.

Key #1: If something special is happening to a stock, it will be reflected in some kind of unusual activity in the markets.

As individual investors, we will never be the first to know; however, unusual activity can be an early sign that allows us to follow the Wall Street professionals and …

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.
