5 Great Low Priced Stocks

February 29, 2016 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: VNCE , OCLR , CENX

As I write this post the market seems to have found a bottom but I can't really say it has began a recovery.  Although 74.61% of the 10,000+ stocks in the Barchart database are trading above their 20 Day Moving Averages only 48.47% are trading above their 50 DMAs.  I like it when the market is trading above its 20, 50 and 100 DMAs but we are not there yet.

Today list are some of the stocks I added recently to the Barchart Van Meerten Speculative portfolio.  For this portfolio I use Barchart to screen the Russell 3000 Index stocks first for a price under $10, technical buy signals of 80%+ and then I use the Flipchart feature to review the charts for consistency.  Today's additions include:
Vince Holdings (VNCE), Oclaro (OCLR), Century Aluminum (CENX), Orasure Technologies (OSUR) and Groupon (GRPN).

The Top 2 NASDAQ 100 Stocks

February 09, 2016 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MAT , FAST

Why only 2 stocks instead of the Top 5?  Because the market stinks!.  For me to feature a stock it must meet a minimum hurdle.  The stock must have technical buy signals of 80% or more, be trading above its 20, 50 and 100 Day Moving Averages and have a positive 50-100 Day MACD Oscillator.  Only 2 NASDAQ 100 stocks make the grade.

How bad is the market?  As I'm writing this post the majority of the 10,000+ stock in the Barchart database are trading below their 20, 50 and 100 DMAs.  Those trading above are:

29.19% above their 20 DMA15.55% above their 50 DMA14.74% above their 100 DMAThat's pretty bad. Agreed?
Ok, the 2 stocks making the grade are Mattel (MAT) and Fastenal (FAST).
