Monday's Outcomes

I analyzed BBY as a potential high-volatility play but was unable to get a fill. I shall revisit it on Aug. 22 for further analysis.

I postponed analysis of WMT to accommodate an earnings announcement. I shall revisit the symbol on Aug. 17 for further analysis. See the advisory here.

I entered five shares positions using my small-lots strategy:

I exited five small-lots positions:

Note that in the tactic column, I have changed nomenclature and am using "momentum" where I was used "zacks".
