Weekend Winners and Losers - Alert HQ BUY and SELL signals for December 5, 2009

This is the usual quick post announcing that the weekend's stock signals are now available at Alert HQ. I apologize for the delay but we had a struggle with our systems today and it took some time to get things squared away and operating properly.

Today we have the following stock picks and signals:
  • Based on daily data, we have 31 Alert HQ BUY signals and 4 SELL signals
  • Based on weekly data, we have 1 Alert HQ BUY signal and 14 SELL signals
  • We have 105 Bollinger Band Breakouts based on daily data and 200 Breakouts based on weekly data.
  • We have 849 Cash Flow Kings
  • 32 Swing Signals -- 26 BUY signals and 6 SELL Signals.
  • 262 Trend Leaders, all in strong up-trends according to Aroon, MACD and DMI. We have 57 stocks that are new additions to the list and 52 that fell off the previous list.
  • 78 Trend Busters based on daily data. We also have 67 Trend Busters based on weekly data.
  • 172 Gap Signals -- stocks with upside or downside gaps or gaps that have been closed. We also have 62 Gap Signals based on weekly data.
The view from Alert HQ --

Whew! Stocks dodged a bullet when the Nonfarm Payrolls Report far exceeded expectations. Dubai became a distant memory and, though stocks were unable to hang onto Friday morning's very strong gains in the face of dollar appreciation, markets still finished the week with decent gains. Small-caps especially were standouts this week with the Russell 2000 sporting a 4.4% gain.

At Alert HQ, moderate bullishness continues. The signals based on daily data are reacting and we see 31 BUY signals today compared to only a few BUY signals a week ago. On the Swing Signals and Trend Busters lists BUY signals greatly outnumber SELL signals. It would be nice, however, if the Trend Leaders list would start to grow. With only 262 stocks and ETFs on the list it can only be considered "anemic."

In summary, our signals are mostly bullish, the primary trend continues to be UP and economic reports are supportive. It's a good time to be browsing our signals and looking for some good candidates for your portfolio or watchlist.

Brazil - in a bubble or on a roll?

A couple of years ago, no one recognized the real estate bubble even though it was under everyone's nose. Now, analysts and bloggers are seeing bubbles everywhere they look. One of them, they say is in Brazil whose Bovespa stock market index has doubled in the last 12 months. Does the bubble accusation hold water? I don't think so and here are 7 reasons why Brazil is by no means a bubble economy: Exports have held up over the past year thanks to demand from China for Brazil's soya exports and iron ore. This was helped by the the Brazilian government's drive to improve trade links with Asia and Africa. Export diversification, spurred by a more active trade policy and increased focus on "south-south" trade under current president Lula, helped mitigate the decline in demand from OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries A "sensible" economic framework has been in place since the 1990's. This has included inflation
