Free stock alerts, Trend Leaders, Bollinger Band Breakouts and Cash Flow Kings for April 24, 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 7300 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 3% above their upper Bollinger Band or at least 3% below their lower Bollinger Band. These lists are all available at Alert HQ.

Here is what we have this week --

Well, the market wasn't able to make it seven straight weekly gains in row. As a result, the signals based on daily data are weakening while the signals based on weekly data are still in mode where they are catching up in terms of bullishness.

Here is the detailed breakdown for Alert HQ for this week:

  • based on daily data, we have 11 Alert HQ BUY signals and 35 SELL signals.
  • based on weekly data, we have 237 Alert HQ BUY signals and 3 SELL signals.
  • based on daily data, we have 874 Trend Leaders, a decline from last week.
  • based on daily data, we have 274 Bollinger Band Breakouts but we also have 408 Breakouts based on weekly data. Bullish breakouts dominate.
  • finally, we have 1088 Cash Flow Kings, exactly the same number as last week.

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.

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:
