The Watchlist: Stocks that I’m watching for a variety of reasons. The sections are bull plays, bear plays, diversification, wounded birds and zombies.
See the listings key near the end of this posting for an explanation of the listings.
Seen the Earnings Calendar on the menu bar for the latest on when stocks on the Watchlist will announce.
My holdings are marked with an asterisk (*).
Analysis is based on Tuesday's market close.
|GE||transnat, price channel|
|MCO||covered call base|
|MU||price channel, holding|
|SBUX||holding (seeking exit)|
All bear plays appear because of price channel analysis.
|FNMA||crazy penny stock speculation|
About the categories:
- Bull plays: I think these are more likely to rise than fall.
- Bear plays: I think these are more likely to fall than rise.
- Diversification plays: These don’t closely track the U.S. markets or are based on currencies other than the U.S. dollar.
- Wounded birds: Stocks I find fascinating but they each have an apparently fatal flaw.
- Zombies: These are failed leftovers from what seemed to be good ideas at the time. They stalk the Watchlist like zombies, tying up resources and frightening small children.
- pfe - Location of the polarized fractal efficiency line.
- pps - Person's Proprietary Signal mode.
