Weekend Winners and Losers - Alert HQ BUY and SELL signals for June 26, 2009

The latest list of free stock alerts is up and available at Alert HQ.

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.
This week's results --

It turned out to be a lackluster week in the markets. The S&P 500 fell fractionally and the NASDAQ was up fractionally, a result of how stocks fought back to erase a big 3% drop on Monday. Economic news was not particularly positive with home sales and jobs disappointing. The week was probably saved by an upside surprise in Durable Goods and a good earnings report from Oracle.

When looking at this week's Alert HQ results, I get the feeling the market is catching its breath for another big move. We are seeing a surge in Swing Signals, the Bollinger Band Breakouts are holding steady with a bullish bias and the Trend Leaders are starting to show some improvement with very few falling off the most recent list. I'm getting the impression that maybe the widely expected correction is not yet underway. We shall see...

Here is the detailed breakdown for Alert HQ for this weekend:
  • Based on daily data, we have 6 Alert HQ BUY signals and 13 SELL signals
  • Based on weekly data, we have 7 Alert HQ BUY signals and 9 SELL signals
  • Based on daily data, we have 146 Trend Leaders. 55 new stocks joined the list since Thursday and only 7 fell off the list since Thursday.

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 …

We also use the Alert HQ process to generate more free lists of stocks and ETFs

The first byproduct of the Alert HQ process is the Trend Leaders list, our collection of stocks in strong up-trends. These stocks are registering strong signals using Aroon analysis, DMI and MACD. They are also above their 50-day exponential moving average. This week's list is now available at the TradeRadar site on the Trend Leaders page.
