A Unique Opportunity Awaits

I am going to place a large deposit into my personal account soon and will be allocating funds designed for long term capital appreciation. On the blog, you often get to see me lather myself in glorious winship, via swing trading. I do have long term investments that would put you to sleep and aren’t very appealing to my ADD addled audience. Think of the blog as a television channel. In order to retain our powerful ratings, people must be killed, drama must be provided. At times, it’s beneficial to see “The Fly” fail, as that sort of trait resonates with most of you.

However, in this instance, you will get to bear witness to the very nascency of supreme winship, via my personal account holdings. I do not pretend to be able to, or want to for that matter, transform my barmitzvah (sp?) dollars into a multi-million dollar account. Instead, and what I am going to do, I will grow my multi-million dollar account, which was earned the old fashioned way, in a methodical and calculated manner. There will not be much trading involved here and I will not talk about it often.

As for the general market: I find myself up on a weak day, so I have zero complaints. My little Amazonian jungle mobile phone play, IFON, is ripping spines out and committing “Babalities” upon the people who doubted me. IFON should trade to $10 in our lifetime, so help me God.

One quick note: both JMEI and GOGO want to go. And, I really like AG here, and the rest of the gold/silver space. There is money to be made in them hills. Go and get some.

Reminder: All annual members of The PPT, 12631 and After Hours with Option Addict qualify for our 1st annual Labour Day Chinese Lotto Drawing, at which time I will gift two cash prizes–one for 1k and another for $500. If you’ve been on the fence about joining or upgrading your membership, get off the damned fence and do it.

A Fine End to a Treacherous Week

About ten years ago I had a client close out his account. He was taking a position at a new company and due to compliance concerns, he needed to consolidate his brokerage accounts. Many people in my industry get vindictive when accounts are closed out, often ‘full boating’ clients on the way out, as a bad faith gesture to fuck off for closing the account. I’ve always done the exact opposite, charging nothing to leave, a gesture that communicated my appreciation for the years of business that this person entrusted in me.

Who knows if this person remembers what I did or not? The important point is that we left on good terms, because I chose to take the high road and not the petty one.

I will have you know, this person is now my largest client.

Don’t burn bridges people. Many of you are too stupid to understand that networking between people is the most valuable asset we have, other than time. If you are an intra-vert, oddballish around other humans, you should take public speaking classes or learn how to not be a pussy around women.

You’re all going to die within a few short decades, so you might as well go for the prize now.

In other news, The PPT wins again. Ask somebody.
PPT

Print This and Smack Yourself in the Face with It

ppt

As you can see from the chart above, The PPT‘s oversold indicator crushed it again. Over the lifetime of the system, since 2008, the system is now running at an impressive 83% accuracy rate. Now what I would like you to do, since you’re all big talkers, is to print this post out, dip it in some water, and smack yourselves in your big, fat, faces with it.

Futures are indicating a weak opening. But I don’t believe the sellers are hell bent on lower prices just yet. We are overdue for some weakness, the July lull that I’ve been waiting for. But at the end of the day, any dip is a buying opportunity until late August.

Just to reiterate: I am ‘super-bullish’ on stocks until late August, when I believe this market might top out. Until then, enjoy your chinese lottery plays and prepare for a rainy day.

Here Are Some Ideas for the Week to Come

What worked last week?

This is taken from the new PPT, currently under development.

1 week returns for industries.

Here are some individual stock winners.
Solar: CSUN, TSL, YGE.
Internet service providers: REDF, TRLA, SIFY
General Entertainment: MMYT, VGGL, PRXI
3-D: DDD, AMAVF, ONVO
Hospitals: CYH, CCM, THC

What’s next? Let’s have a look at some laggards.

Last week a slew of beaten down tech stocks rose by double digits. But what’s down big over the last 3 months and didn’t gap higher by 10% last week? Very simple analysis.

laggards

From that list, I am long CNQR.

THE BEARS ARE IN HELL

All of the panic and strife from two weeks ago has withered away, like pixie dust in the wind with the profits of professional short sellers. The stocks that everyone was afraid to own are now ownable, bankable companies, worthy of your attention. Look at FEYE, DWRE and NOW screaming higher.

The good folks over at GOOG have decided that they do not like SALE’s coupons and have prohibited people from finding it on the internet, in favor of COUP’s coupons. While some people might say “that’s punitive, anti-competitive and generally unfair.” I say to them, and anyone else, the internet belongs to Google, so shut up.

Most of my stocks are higher today and I am back on a profitable path, but there is a cost. No longer am I able to toss around millions of dollars into whims, play around like some animal in a field of garbage. I am much more selective now, imposing rules and order to my trading practices. Believe you me, there are so many degenerate stocks that I wish to own now, but I simply cannot afford to buy them. Until I make back 10% from my -32% loss, I am in the proverbial ‘fag box.’ In case you’re wondering, I am still down about 32%, so there’s nothing to get excited about just yet.

HOWEVER, I need  to remind you of the imperial powers of The PPT, flagging  the market to be oversold on 5/15, when the SPY was at $187.4. On that day, I purchased QQQ, as part of my new trading strategy, at $87.4. I will sell it  on the 7th day, which is Tuesday, most likely for a 3-4% profit.

Over the past 12 months, our mean reversion algorithm is 100% accurate, 10-0, over a 10 day hold. Over the lifetime of this algorithm (2008), it clocks in at 85% accurate.

To get ahead in the market, I do not need the holy grail. All I need is an edge. This provides me with that and I’d be remiss if I didn’t take full advantage of the tools god has bestowed upon me.

Amen.

Post Olde Man Portfolio

After I catch my sea-legs, I will be sashaying (no homo) out of the amber of olde man, wheeled chair, restrictiveness– back into something a bit more aggressive. For those of you in the money management business and solely focused on gathering assets, this is probably not for you–as you should be more interested in preservation of capital over outperformance. As to why I do what I do: I enjoy shooting for the stars. It keeps my blood flowing like a raging river.

On June 1st, I will be updating the GARP (growth at a reasonable price) Index inside of The PPT. Year to date, excluding dividends, it is down less than 3%. Considering the pressure applied to growth stocks, I’d say it could’ve been a lot worse. However, being down is never acceptable. Most of the GARP loss is in one stock: NUS, which was cut in half since the beginning of the year. Ex that out and it would definitely be up. I intend to right the ship in that index during the second half of the year.

If I was putting together a portfolio today, I would pick 10 stocks. Three of them would be mega cap dividend payers aka olde man stocks. Five of them would be GARP plays. And the last two spots would be reserved for high beta growth plays–equal weighting of 10% across the board.

Just to give you an idea, here is one portfolio that I put together for someone just yesterday (new money comes in all the time).

PG
COP
BUD
KORS
GILD
ABC
FANG
YNDX
YELP
SCTY

An alternative portfolio, one that I am also modeling might look like this:

KMB
OXY
TGT
HAR
JAZZ
TRN
SLCA
EPAM
LNKD
CSIQ

My actively traded accounts would look a lot different, as they’re structured for short term trading. A stock like XON could be plugged in there, instead of YELP or SCTY. The point is, if you are doing this professionally or self-directing your own assets, it’s a good idea to have a plan. It’s also worth noting, plans work out incredibly well until something goes wrong. Be prepared for extreme tomfoolery and stress test your account under a number of scenarios. You should never manage your money the way I just did, over the past two months. Going forward, I intend to exhibit a lot more discipline and structure in my investment approach, in order to mitigate “full body detonation.”

THE BIGGEST DOGS

Inside The PPT, I ran two screens to search for stocks down huge, but with large net cash positions. Regardless of their business prospects, profitability etc, the following names are on my radar, inspired by the TITANIC move in VRNS today.

symbol, % down from 52 week high, net cash per share/price ratio
CSLT (10-17 over the past month!) 60%, 0.14
CRCM 61%, 0.33
PTCT 53%, 0.54
ACHN 67%, 0.53
DRNA 65%, 0.46
MGNX 52%, 0.37
INFI, 68%, 0.36
RCPT, 52%, 0.27
ARWR, 55%, 0.26
SSNI, 65%, 0.26
TXTR, 56%, 0.14
FEYE, 69%, 0.14
NMBL, 51%, 0.11
BLOX, 61%, 0.25
FUEL, 67%, 0.23

Now get to work.

The First Responders

Barring a conflagration in Ukraine, stocks should continue higher tomorrow.

The following stocks are heavily shorted, are in hyper growth mode, ranked high by The PPT algorithms.

In case you’re wondering how The PPT Oversold signal fared, I attached a chart for all of you TEDDARDS out there.

Time to Update the GARP Index

By the way, Seeking Alpha continues to defecate themselves with AMBA spiraling higher.

One of the added features to The PPT is the GARP index (growth at a reasonable price). I added this feature last year after people requested to have some longer term ideas thrown at them from my penthouse apartment. Over the past year, the GARP index returned in excess of 30%, excluding dividends. The chart got messed up after we updated the index in June; but it still tells the story.

GARP

The index is comprised of 15 stocks, diversified amongst the 10 principle sectors. It is updated only twice per annum, once in January and again in June. Here are the 6 month results of the current members.

GARP2

I’ve been researching for the new 2014 GARP index for more than a month and will be unveiling it after pagan Xmas.

As an aside: BALT.
