ARE THEY BEGGING US TO BE COMPLACENT??

 

Week 28 had a nice profit considering that we had to give up our position in AA due to expiration.  I’ll be looking for any pull back to rebuy the option.  We still own the stock in the $100,000 account so it didn’t hurt too much.  We had a gain of $584 bringing YTD gains to a new high at $6,921.  We have two new positions this week, a long in HOG calls and QQQ puts.  The first has had some takeover talk and while that is never a good reason alone to buy a stock, it has had some decent basing action over the past 4 months, and is sitting on its 13 day moving average. Earnings (7/28) are far enough in the future to see what develops on the technical action.

 

The other new position is the QQQ (NASDAQ 100) puts.  This is a “balance position” based on the fact that the market is statistically overbought, over extended, and reaching levels that without some real growth are unsustainable.

 

The spread historical between equity yields and the 30 year US Treasury bond which is normally 380 basis point is now running at almost the same rates.*

*BCA Special report

 

The extraordinarily low rates are clearly being caused by two actions; the continued purchase of our “safe haven” status treasuries by everyone in the world, and the fact that while you are almost guaranteed to lose principal in the bonds up here, you are hedging yourself against another negative shock in the future.  It’s sort of like the “greater fool theory” of buying stocks that are expensive because you think someone else will buy then higher…only in reverse.  This NEVER ends well.

 

This is causing everyone, the elderly, the bankers, the “long only” income funds and the banks to chase yield by accepting more risk.  It has happened too many times to ignore, and as I said, it never ends well for anyone.

 

I still stand by the rationale that I posted Thursday in our new daily update:

 

Further statistical basis for some balanced positions are the following statistics; 60% of the S&P500 are yielding more than the 10yr US Treasuries (a point at which we generally see a reversal, and 82% of those same stocks are above their 50 day moving averages, also in historic high ground.  These 2 statistics and the fact that we have come well over 1300 Dow points and over 150 S&P500 points makes me think we have a tradable pullback. For that reason I’ve taken a few profits and completed the spreads noted above and am looking not for specific “point” moves, but rather I am going to issue sell stops for reversals.

 

As I’ve said many times before, the whole fundamental picture does not generally change as quickly as market psychology, but the fastest way to stop the market in its tracks is geopolitical problems.  Everyone knew that Turkey was in trouble and in a troubled area, but nobody knew when it would erupt.  So, not exactly a “Black Swan” event maybe a little dark grey…It’s not over and will flare again and hopefully you won’t just be holding your breath, and you’ll have some balance.

 

As I wrote in the Thursday Daily Note, I thought I believe that there is a good chance of a tradable “counter trend” move to the downside, and we took action that added some balance for protection.

 

I then spent 8-10 hours looking through charts and while I still believe that to be true I did notice an interesting comparison for the “set-up” for a long term sustainable Bull market.  It’s not easy to see since it is very long term but by manipulating my charts to the monthly timeframe and then zooming in to weekly and daily terms it is remarkably evident.

 

So, here’s the comparison…During the 17 years of 1966 to 1983 the Dow was traded in a range bound by roughly 1,000 on the upside and 600 on the downside.  When it broke out it then ran 170% to 2700, had a 40% slide to 1600 (1987 “portfolio insurance) and then continued for another 11 years to 11,500.  The next pull back, DOTCOM related lasted (2001-2002) was 38% to 7,200 followed by a 5 year move to 14,200.  Next came the subprime crisis and the low of 6,500 a 54% drop, again followed by another 176% move.

 

The point of all of this technical work shows that REAL long term bull markets have sharp, severe slides all the time and some even happen right before the breakout to new all-time highs.  So, fundamentally we have several quarters of easily beaten earnings comparisons, a sharp correction is not out of the question, hence balance and protection.  I relate to the VIX (protection) the same way as the bookies related to the chance of a Leave vote on the Brexit….They were offering such long odds that they were begging you to bet that way.  The VIX is so depressed that the investing public is so complacent they are saying you don’t need protection or balance.  Almost like the college football when they’ll give you 35 points to take the underdog…who then loses by 50.

 

Again, I still think that we can again head higher and if we have a couple of good quarterly earnings reports, much higher but the trees don’t grow to the sky..CAM

There were five closed out long option positions. The 20 Alcoa ( AA ) July $ 9 Calls bought on two occasions, June 24th, 12 lots and 8 lots on June 27th were sold on July 15th for a gain of $ 2,238. There were three losing trades: The 20 AA Calls Sold Short on July 11th and covered July 15th lost $ 860. The 8 QQQ July 29th 110 Puts were sold for a loss of $ 72 while the 8 AAPL July 29th 96.50 Puts bought on July 12th and sold July 14th lost $ 136. The net weekly gain for options trading was $ 1,168. There were 3 closed stock positions: The PYPL made $ 275 while the AAPL lost $ 22 and the SPXU lost $ 44.  For the entire year on closed out trades, our hypothetical profits increased to $17,607.00.The options expire on the third Friday of each Month unless otherwise posted. The Stock table has the following 19 positions:  AA, COTV, EYES (2), HL,HLF, HOG, MOS(2),  NBGGY, NVAX, REPR,  SAN, SCO(2),SUN,SPXU,TEXQY, and TWTR.

 

The options call for a $ 2,500 investment unless otherwise stated; each stock position requires $5,000 unless otherwise mentioned specifically. The money management is based on a hypothetical

$ 100,000.00. We are using a total of $79,947.00 for the 19 open long stock positions. The Open Option Positions require $ 2,246.00.This increases the margin requirement to $ 82,193.00. The 6 written Hecla Call positions reduce the margin requirement by $ 312 lowering the margin requirement to $ 81,881.00, leaving $ 18,119.00 in cash. Open positon losses decreased by $ 2,401 to minus

$ 7,872, following last week’s improvement of $ 1,943.00 as stock prices continued to improve.  These figures are approximate and there might be errors. We have not counted the dividends received from many previous trades such as Apple, Colgate Palmolive, JP Morgan, Mosaic, North American Tankers, STNG, Santander, which pays over 5%, their Brazil affiliate BSBR and Blue Capital Reinsurance which was sold for a profit and many others. The trading is hypothetical and we do not count commission costs.

 

The trading is hypothetical and we do not count commission costs.

 

Executions that have occurred at or near the open or close of trading sometimes vary from our actual numbers.  For example, when something opens down and it is through our price, we take the next trade whether it is an uptick or continues lower.  This sometimes results in a 50% trade that is slightly above or below the exact number.

Market Strategies Fundamentals

Stocks soared led by the Dow Jones Transportation Index  ( DJT: 7985.17 ) + 301.89 or + 3.9%,  finally catapulted above its 200 day moving average last Monday and then never looked back as the index began closing in on its April levels.

Both the Dow and S&P 500 made new record all-time highs. The Dow ( 18,516.55 ) + 369.81 or + 3.9% last week, closed higher each of its last six trading sessions rising 620.67 points.The new all-time high on the Dow is now 18,557.43.  The S&P 500 ( 2161.74 ) + 31.84 or + 1.49%, had risen to a new all-time inter day high at 2169.

The Nasdaq ( 5029.59 ) + 72.83 or + 1.47%, having been the laggard, climbed lethargically to a high of 5045, which was all it could muster, but still above its December 2015 close of 5007 and above the gap left early January. The generals have been lethargically flat, resisting rising in conjunction with the overall market. For example Alphabet ( GOOG: $ 719.65 ) + $ 14.22 oe + 2% gave lip service but as anemic. Amazon ( AMZN: $ 735.44 ) – $10.37 or -1.4%; Netflix hardly even moved ( NFLX: $ 98.39 ) + $ 1.33 or + 1.3%. Facebook ( FB: $ 116.86 ) – $ 0.38 or basically flat on the week. Apple ( AAPL: $ 98.78 ) + $ 2.10 or + 2.2% was the biggest gainer. If this overall market were to have legs, much higher prices would have been likely.

Airline stocks were huge making spectacular gains. American Airlines ( AAL: $ 35.89 ) + $ 5.85 or + 19.5% for the week. United Continental ( UAL: $ 47.43 ) + $ 5.55 or + 13.4% was second best. Alaska Air ( ALK: $ 65.04 ) gained $ 5.18 or + 8.7%. Jet Blue ( JBLU: $ 18.64 ) + $ 1.53 or + 8.9%; Delta ( DAL: $ 39.98 ) + $ 2.61 or + 7%; Southwest Air ( LUV: $ 43.16 ) + $ 2.62 or + 6.5% rounded out the prolific carriers. The ETF U.S. Global Jets ( JETS: $ 23.31 + $ 1.65 or + 7.6% remains well below its 200 day moving average.

Speculators’ bullish positions on the U.S. 10-year Treasury note futures rose to their highest level since April 2013 last week just ahead of the sharp bond sell-off. The amount of long postions in 10-year Treasury futures exceeding bearish or short positions by 131,361 contracts on July 12th, just last Tuesday, according to the CFTC’s latest Commitments of Traders data.

 

The key indicators to keep an eye on will be Q2 earnings & revenues, which so far has beaten most negative expectations. Bears were expecting lower earnings and layoffs over the coming months. Companies are scrambling to find workers instead of the expected layoffs.

Gold jumped late Friday afternoon after the markets closed when the Turkish coup hit the news wires. While this short-term boost was good for gold longs, it looks like President Erdogan regained control. If Turkish political stability is to be maintained moving forward, the Turkish Lira and stock markets of the world will recover losses. However, the event itself is a reminder of the difficult world circumstances that have become prevalent.

Any risk premium for gold due to these events might be lost since physical demand is really poor which will negatively impact the short term fundamentals.

The latest Commitment of Traders report (COT) saw record-breaking gold positions drop for the first week in a month. Silver actually diverged a little from gold as speculators increased their own positions, which also probably was reflected in the prices as silver was much stronger for the week than gold.

As investors can see, after five weeks of speculative long position increases, we finally saw these longs take some profits their positions. That might have also encouraged shorts to increase their own positions by a mediocre 3,740 contracts.

Looking back at the last major gold peak in 2011, the actual peak in gold occurred around a month after the net speculative long peak occurred. However, today’s Geo-Political events are much more difficult. The Financial Services ETF ( GLD: $ 126.84 ) – $ 3.68 or -2.8%, could pull back to test its 50-day moving average at about 122.50. A new base needs to be formed before substantial advances can be made.

 

Last week, July 13th, the Fed released its Beige Book, a report from the 12 Federal Reserve Districts, summarizing business and labor conditions. Economic activity continued to expand as a modest pace across most regions from mid-May through the end of June. Price pressure remained slight. Consumer spending was generally positive, with some signs of slight softening.  Manufacturing activity was generally improved. There were a record number of appearances by Fed participants reflecting a positive but modestly improving outlook.

 

 

Market Strategies Economic Data

The Producer Price Index (PPI) for June revealed a 0.5% increase in the PPI for final demand (Briefing.com consensus +0.3%). The index for final demand less foods and energy (“core PPI”) advanced 0.4% (Briefing.com consensus +0.1%). This report finally is a good one for the Federal Reserve in their desire to raise interest rates.

The uptick in PPI for final demand was driven by a 0.4% jump in prices for final demand services.

The index for final demand goods increased 0.8%, which was the largest monthly increase since May 2015 and was led by a 4.1% uptick in prices for final demand energy. June marked the third straight monthly increase in core PPI and the largest monthly gain since January.

On a year-over-year basis, PPI for final demand is up 0.3% after being down 0.1% in May while core PPI is up 1.3% after being up 1.2% in May.

The Treasury Budget for June showed a surplus of $6.3 billion versus a surplus of $50.5 billion in June 2015. The Treasury Budget data is not seasonally adjusted, so the June surplus cannot be compared to the $52.5 billion deficit registered in May.

Total receipts in June were $329.6 billion while total outlays were $323.3 billion. Receipts were $13.4 billion less than receipts in June 2015. Total outlays, meanwhile, were $48.7 billion more than the same period a year ago. The 12-month deficit widened to $523.6 billion from $479.3 billion in May.

Market Strategies Cycles

 

The Stock Trader’s Almanac recommends to look for sales in the market. Remain patient as the first half of July is historically bullish, but afterwards the worst-two-consecutive-month span, August through September, begins. Like past short trade ideas, there are two possible prices presented to establish a short position. The first is labeled “Short @ Resistance” in the table below. Should a stock rally toward this price then stall and loss momentum a short trade can be considered. Look for corresponding weakness by MACD, Stochastic and relative strength indicators to confirm. The second price to consider shorting the stock is listed in “Short on breakdown below”. This is the stock’s current projected support level. If the stock breaks support a short trade can be considered. Regardless of short trade entry price, the suggested stop loss is the same initially. All 16 short stock ideas will be tracked in the Almanac Investor Stock Portfolio which is currently scheduled to be fully updated on July 19 (sooner if conditions warrant).

 

 

This basket of 16 possible stocks to short spans the three market cap ranges in the Almanac Investor Stock Portfolio. There are three Small-Cap stocks (less than $1billion), six Mid-Cap stocks (greater than $1 billion but less than $5 billion) and seven Large-Cap stocks (greater than $5 billion in value). Our screening process involved an in-depth review of fundamentals, such as revenues and earnings, valuation metrics like price-to-earnings and price-to-sales ratios, each stock’s technical situation as well as price and daily trading volume. Seasonally weak sectors, like materials, transports and cyclicals (and oil which begins in September) were also given extra attention and produced more than half of the stocks in the basket.

 

Open interest is moving into the September light sweet oil futures contract. Since peaking a little above $52.70 in early-June, the price of oil has pulled back. The bears tried pushing it through $45 several times in recent days but to no avail. On a bounce, the first target is near $48, which also corresponds to the 20-day moving average. The RSI is neutral, around 45 and the MACDs are poised to cross higher.

 

 

 

 

 


 

Undervalued Small Cap Stocks

 

Lower Priced stocks that look to be a buy:

Repro-Med Systems,Inc  ( OTCQX:  REPR 0.47 )* 

Fourth quarter preliminary net revenues will exceed $3.2 million, representing a slight increase over the $3.1 million of the previous quarter.   Sales are led by the Company’s proprietary infusion products.  The Company’s fiscal year ended February 29, 2016.

Andy Sealfon, Company President and CEO commented, “The military has expressed interest in our products for utilization in emergency applications as well as use in VA hospitals.  We believe that because of our performance standards and the reliability of our products, we will provide them with great value and benefits.”

The Company manufactures medical products used for infusions and suctioning. The Infusion product portfolio currently includes the FREEDOM60(R) and the newer FreedomEdge™ Syringe Infusion Pumps, RMS Precision Flow Rate Tubing(TM) and RMS HIgH-Flo(TM) Subcutaneous Safety Needle Sets. These devices are used for infusions administered in professional healthcare settings as well as at home. The Company’s RES-Q-VAC line of medical suctioning products is used by emergency medical service providers in addition to a variety of other healthcare providers.

NHIA is a trade association representing the interests of entities providing infusion and specialty pharmacy products and services to home-based infusion patients.

The Company’s website is RMSMedicalProducts.com

Repro-Med Systems, Inc has had an increase in sales each of the last four years. They finished the year of 2014 with $ 11.2 million in sales reflecting top line growth of  29% from 2013.In each of the previous two years they had a 12% increase in sales. The company has had at least $ 700 thousand of net income in each of the past four years and has no debt. The patented needle sets alone can give the company a huge growth potential. In my opinion, with new products coming on stream, the stock should trade between $ 3 and $ 8 in the next two years.

 

Enzo Biochem ( ENZ: $ 6.50 ) The stock moved from approximately $5 a share to approximately $6.50 from May 1 to early June. If you look at the chart pattern of the stock the big volume came in on May 9 which coincided with the Louis Navellier recommendation that I sent to you on that date. He recommended 5 stocks of which 3 (including Enzo) all had similar chart patterns with significant increases in trading volume. I don’t know how much of that volume came from individual investors but the buying had lots of 100-500 share trades which tells me that individuals, not institutional investors were strong buyers of Enzo.

 

During the same time frame the Russell Index probably started to see some front running by Index funds or ETF’s to take a position into Enzo’s stock as they looked to be included in the Index. These funds mirror the Russell Index. The Russell is a two edged sword. The positive edge is that for Enzo it probably means 2-3 million shares will be bought. Enzo was included in the 2000 and 3000 Russell Index on June 10.

 

The Russell will hedge their long positions by shorting the stock against their long position to go neutral if they think the market shows weakness or if the fundamentals of the company change. If you remember when Enzo was removed from the Index a couple of years ago the short position was 4 million plus shares and the day Enzo was removed the shorts delivered their long position against the short to flatten the position. The short position on that day dropped to 1 million shares. Enzo had a conference call on their third quarter release last week and I didn’t see any change in the fundamentals. However those individual investors that bought on the Navellier recommendation don’t know the Company and saw that they reported a loss for the quarter (even though they beat estimates) and may have taken profits.

 

The market in general was down 5 straight days and the index’s that got long the stock may have shorted to hedge their position. That can be confirmed on the first two week short report due out next week. The short position at the end of May was 937,000 shares down from the mid- month short of 1,010,700.The stock has come down some 15% from its high which is not a big deal. To me it is just a technical move.

 

The stock is approaching oversold territory and as the fear grows the opportunity becomes bigger. The fundamentals haven’t changed and in fact have become stronger with the latest AmpiProbe approval. Enzo has cash of $50 million and no debt. There are 7 more cases to get settled in Delaware which can provide significant additions to the cash position. AmpiProbe will have more submissions to the New York regulatory agency this year. AmpiProbe is cheaper, better and faster than existing technology and that is a $3 billion market.

 

This is an awesome potential for a 47 million share company and who knows what will happen if the NIH has positive statements on their Optiquel test for Uveitis. The stock is 50% owned by Institutions and funds, 15% by insiders and I guess 10% by hedge funds. That leaves some 11 million shares in the float. If the Russell causes 2-3 million shares to be bought the float then become 8-9 million shares. Good news can really move the price.

 

Gold Mining USA  OTC: GMUI ( 0.01 )* Has both mining activities in Australia and the U.S. Gold Mining USA Inc is an emerging natural resources company focused on developing metallurgical and mining projects. The Company’s business model is to acquire projects with the potential to provide significant resources through exploratory drilling and generate value through their development, joint venture or divestment. GMUI has a team of experts who will manage all mining operations available on their website. In addition GMUI has an Offtake Agreement with a prestigious Swiss-based Gold buyer and Refiner to purchase its gold production at the spot price at the London Bullion Market ( LBMA ) on the day gold is collected.

Australia and Nevada provide the opportunities to exploit smaller, undeveloped or previously mined gold resources that are of no interest to the large mining companies. In addition, there are numerous small hard rock and alluvial gold mines which have viable gold resources but are unable to raise the funds to start up or continue operations.

The company has signed an ongoing agreement with Cardno, a professional infrastructure and environmental services company, to assist in the evaluation and implementation of a work program on one of its North America properties. Steve Craig, a well-known Certified Professional Geologist, will be heading up the efforts on the project.

 

Oakridge Global Energy Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB:OGES  0.30) *

Oakridge global energy is a developer, designer and manufacturer of proprietary energy storage solutions. The Company is based out of Florida’s “space coast” near Kennedy Space Center. They make premium quality, proprietary batteries, battery systems and lithium ion cells that are built for maximum performance over the traditional lead/acid batteries. OGES, proudly manufacturing in America since 1986, produces batteries for military, consumer, government, and industrial applications. Target market priorities include golf cars and other recreational vehicles, electronics, and devices requiring rechargeable batteries.

In August 2016 Oakridge Global Energy Solutions will commence production of state-of-the-art Lithium-Ion batteries. The company is currently in the process of soliciting bookings for presale orders with several key industries to include the federal government. Perhaps the most important takeaway regarding Oakridge Global Energy Solutions lies in its relationships that will make it one of the few world manufactures who are able to produce first generation lithium-ion technology that will surpass what is effectively being currently produced.

 

Furthermore, the company has developed an industrial design team that has incorporated a 21st Century contemporary art style to its cell products. Additionally, the company has numerous patients for its technology but perhaps the most interesting of those centers around the Nano-sized lithium thin film solid state batteries with a Nano encasement. This product in itself stands to propel the company into areas that currently only it has the rights to manufacture in the United States. The Nano lithium thin film solid state battery has a large upside market potential both domestically and abroad.

 

Oakridge Global Energy Solutions over the next several months will be entering simultaneously several markets that will be both exciting to watch its competitors scramble to justify their continued use of dated technology and inferior performance. Again, the company has progress along building the right partners, protecting its intellectual capital, and building a 21st Century industrial design team that has hundreds of man years’ worth of experience to produce the world class product to capture market share quickly.

Lithium ion batteries deliver twice the energy of nickel cadmium batteries and are the fastest growing battery segment. Their growth and demand dynamically forward trending. They are lightweight and easy to maintain. They deliver superior electro-chemical output and provide highest energy density for weight, non-metallic and are rechargeable. In 2015, the OGES Pro Series golf car was launched at the annual PGA show, the largest golf show in the world. OGES plans to have a new factory producing its patented thin film solid state lithium ion batteries by 2017. OGES is commencing delivery of a small format prismatic to help several smart card customers reach the next generation.  Their growth will be serviced by the new factory. These batteries are also in a rapidly growing demand for a variety of applications.
