Free stock alerts, Trend Leaders, Bollinger Band Breakouts and Cash Flow Kings for March 13, 2009

This post is to announce that the latest list of free stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ. Each week we scan about 7400 stocks and ETFs looking for fresh BUY and SELL signals. We apply a combination of proprietary and standard technical analysis techniques to identify those stocks that are beginning to move. Our goal is to identify stocks or ETFs that are undergoing reversals, either to the upside or to the downside.

In addition to alerts, we also have our lists of Trend Leaders, a collection of stocks in strong up-trends, Cash Flow Kings whose free cash flow yield is 25% or greater and Bollinger Band Breakouts, stocks or ETFs that have moved at least 1% above their upper Bollinger Band or at least 1% below their lower Bollinger Band. These lists are all available on the Trend Leaders page.

Here is what we have this week --

Stocks staged quite a turnaround this week, prompting a resumption of the debate over whether this is "A Bottom" or "THE Bottom". Whatever it is, major averages rose roughly 10% this week despite more awful employment numbers and GE losing its AAA rating. Bulls were happy to hear that Citigroup actually had two profitable months and that retail sales slipped a mere 0.1% in February. There was discussion in Washington of the uptick rule and mark-to-market accounting (Wall Street likes the former and hates the latter). No decisions were made but just knowing these issues were on the table was enough to help propel stocks upward this week.

So this week, we see more cheerful results at Alert HQ. The number of BUY-signal Alerts are up. The number of TrendLeaders held steady. Inverse ETFs are now on the SELL lists. Here is the breakdown for this week:
  • based on daily data, we have 47 Alert HQ BUY signals and 6 SELL signals.
  • based on weekly data, we have 6 Alert HQ BUY signals and 10 SELL signals.
  • based on daily data, we have 58 Trend Leaders.
  • based on daily data, we have 239 Bollinger Band Breakouts. We also have 300 Breakouts based on weekly data.
  • finally, we have 984 Cash Flow Kings.
Visit Alert HQ and download your free lists of stock alerts. The alerts based on weekly data show those stocks that have exhibited some good follow-through after a recent trend reversal. If you want to be early in identifying the newest trend reversals, the lists based on daily data are for you.

Unlock Stock Market Profits - Key #1

This is the first in an ongoing series of articles where I discuss what I feel are keys to successful investing. It is based on a post that provides a summary of the ten keys that individual investors should use to identify profitable stock trades. ( Click here to read the original post ) 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 profess

Unlock Stock Market Profits - Key #4

The first post in the series discussed how to use unusual activity to identify investing ideas. The second post described how to use stock screeners.

Interactive Ads - Google one-ups Yahoo again

Google's ( GOOG ) press release describing the expansion of a beta program for what are being called Gadget Ads has again shown that Google is unparalleled at melding technology and advertising to benefit its bottom line. Gadget Ads are mini-web pages or "widgets" that can be embedded within publisher pages. I have written in the past on Yahoo's ( YHOO ) Smart Ads and how, by more precisely targeting site users and adjusting ad content accordingly, they provide a much desired evolution of the banner or display ad format. Though Smart Ads and Gadget Ads are not really the same, I think it is fair to say that Google has seen the challenge of Smart Ads and has chosen to leapfrog Yahoo by rolling out its own update to the display ad format. The evolution of the Gadget Ad -- One of the trends on the Internet over the last year or so involves software developers creating "widgets" which can be hosted within web pages and blogs. Widgets can be pretty much any
