Trend Leaders - spotlight on the latest additions

Having just posted the Thursday Alert HQ signals consisting of Trend Busters, Trend Leaders and Swing Signals, it occurred to me that it would be useful to see what stocks or ETFs were new to the Trend Leaders list.

One of the issues affecting analysis of the market lately is that so many stocks have been in steep up-trends. This means that the Trend Leaders list is pretty big each time we run it, often listing well over 1000 entries. The sheer volume sometimes makes it difficult to pick out the stocks of interest. That is why I have implemented functionality to allow you to sort the data. Still, I realize that may not be enough.

Spotlight on today's leaders --

Today the market was pretty strong, but just prior to today it had suffered a number of weak sessions. The result is that the Trend Leaders list has dwindled to less than 500. Over 700 stocks fell off the list since it was last run on Tuesday night though 382 stocks still remain.

Below I have listed those stocks and ETFs that are were not on Tuesday's Trend Leaders list but have now made a new appearance on today's list. There are 53 in all.

I will try to do this on a regular basis. It should help readers more easily identify those stocks that are just starting to out-perform without having to wade through a huge list.

Remember, on the Trend Leaders page, we have more data in a tabular format that you can sort on and we also offer a downloadable file that you can import into your favorite spreadsheet software.

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 professionals and …

With this fourth post, we will continue another step along the path of finding stocks that seem to have some potential. 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. The third post described how to use lists of new highs and new lows. This post will focus on identifying social or business trends in order to find investing ideas.

Information on new trends might turn up anywhere. In conversation with friends or business associates, in newspapers or magazines, on TV or though your work. The key is to be aware of trends and how they start, stop or change. We'll start by describing what to lo…

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.
