DUSA Pharma is a gem

December 23, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: DUSA.DL , PCYC , PHMD

This morning I added DUSA Pharmaceutical (DUSA) to the Brachart Van Meerten speculative portfolio on positive price momentum.  The portfolio features stocks trading below $10 per share that are hitting the most frequent new highs in the past month.  As shown in this graph provided by Barchart, it seems to be hitting on all cylinders:


DUSA Pharmaceuticals, Inc.(DUSA), a vertically integrated dermatology company, develops and markets Levulan photodynamic therapy (PDT) and other products for common skin conditions primarily in the United States, Canada, and Korea. Its products include Levulan Kerastick 20% Topical Solution with PDT and the BLU-U brand light source for the treatment of non-hyperkeratotic actinic keratoses of the face or scalp. The company also markets the BLU-U without Levulan for the treatment of moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris and general dermatological conditions; and non-PDT drug products, such as ClindaReach and AVAR products. DUSA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. was founded in 1991 and is based in Wilmington, Massachusetts.  [more]

Exar for speculation

December 20, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: EXAR

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS

This morning I used Barchart to screen all the stocks with over 100K volume per day that were hitting the most frequent new highs and came up with a very interesting pick Exar Corp (EXAR).  I found it because of its recent activity but on further review found another Seeking Alpha article saying it is an insider buying pick.  I've invest long enough to know that when a stock starts being bought up during a recession it means one of 2 things:  1 - the stock has great unannounced prospects for the future or 2 there might be an unannounced merger in the near future.  Before you all jump on me saying there are insider trading rules, all you have to do is look at any merger and then look at the activity in the acquired company in the month before the acquisition.  Please look at this article: "4 Semiconductor Stock Being Bought up by Insiders" .

Freeport-McMoRan is a puzzle

December 15, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: FCX

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS


When I look at Freeport - McMoRan (FCX) I really get confused.  Here is a company that always has good revenue, earnings and cash flow numbers plus an A+ financial strength rating but has performed like a dog lately.  In the long run I think it might be a good buy but you need to be careful in how you play the stock.

Amazon has peaked

December 14, 2011 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: AMZN

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS


There is no doubt that Amazon (AMZN) has been a darling with both Wall Street and the individual investor for some time.  The company was thought by some to have almost unlimited growth possibilities and has definitely been the leader in on-line retailing.  Has the stock hit its peak or is there room to grow?  This graph provided byBarchart shows a 20, 50 and 100 week moving average and a 14 week turtle chart which seem to imply the stock price has hit a resistance level:

When I compare the stock price over the last 50 trading sessions to the Value Line Index of 1700 stocks it shows that the price weakness has nothing to do with the recession or the market:

Buy Pfeizer before its too late

December 13, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: PFE

COMPLETE ARTICLE AND GRAPHS


One of the companies that is highly followed by both the individual and professional investor is Pfizer (PFE). In the near future PFEs bread winner Lipator comes off patent and will become a generic drug.  Many experts feel there are enough drugs in late stage trial to make up for that lost income stream but I don't see that in the revenue and earning projections. Since early August the stock had good upward price momentum as evidenced in this graph provided byBarchart:
