Why no sales?

July 27, 2011 – Comments (1)

Just a word of caution.  I know you haven't seen any major sells in our portfolios lately.  The market has seemed to hit a bottom and has some support.  Please look at the Trend Spotter and 100 day moving average on the Value Line Index.  The Index is an arithmetic index of the 1700 largest stocks and in my opinion is the best stock market indicator for the individual investor.


Don't panic.  Follow the Barchart technical indicators on the stock you own.  Have stop loses in place that are in your comfort zone.  If they trigger sit on the cash.  Sit back and sip a good single malt scotch.  Enjoy life.

Whole Foods is pricey

July 26, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: WFM

Right now my Wall Street Survivor portfolio is full but each week I still look to see what I'd buy if I had some cash.  I'd advice you not to take others' buy/sell recommendations unless you've studied how that person invests and your investment philosophy meshes with theirs.

I'm 64 years old and have already accumulated a large portfolio.  I want to keep what I've got but still need growth to beat future taxes, inflation and whatever other uncertainties that may be thrown up for me to cope with by either the economy or politicians.

Some of my readers have complained  that my articles are "cookie cutter" but I take that as a complement because I want all my stock to have he same attributes.  I want to know the same information about any potential investment and pass on any that don't meet all my criteria.  They are:

Sales and earnings growth projections should be for double digit increasesI need instant gratification so I want to see current positive price momentumThe stock has to have a wide and positive following by both the professional and individual investing communityThere needs to be enough published information on this company because I invest in established companies by looking at the numbers.I do not invest in start-ups that only have ideas and no sales and profitsLet's look at a high growth darling called Whole Foods Market (WFM) and see if it meets my criteria.  [more]
