Loss For The Week $ 276

 

2016 YTD Profits $ 2357

 

Over 23% Returns

 

Positions:

 

Long JPM April 60 Calls                      

 

Funds in use = $ 660

 

 

A Two Way Street……

 

Week 11 had a small loss for the options only account with only 1 completed trade in the SPY puts.  The loss was $276 and that brought the YTD gains back down to a still respectable $2,357.  With a market that the talking heads are reminding us are back to even or only slightly ahead, 23% for Q1 is a great result.  We are also carrying 1 position in the JPM 4/60 calls with a 40% gain.  This speaks directly to the idea of balance since one was clearly a bearish trade while the other was driven by the up market that unfolded again this week.

 

However, this market will run out of gas….even if it is only for a correction of the gains of the last 4 ½ weeks.  I will continue to look for the least expensive way to play for that move.   A good friend and fellow trader with whom I share prospective trades lost money 3 times looking for the overbought top in AAPL last summer……costing anywhere from $1 to $1.75 each time.  That’s less than 1% on average, but when he was right, the stock declined immediately from 132 to 121 and within weeks to below $100.  I would always risk 3% to make 30%…..

 

The point being that I will continue to own just out of the money SPY puts of short term duration since they tend to be the least expensive, while the sharpness and quickness of the moves lower do not require a longer term to materialize.  This is why the balance in our trades look like “short term bearish, longer term bullish.  Our position in JPM goes out until the 3rd Friday of April while any new SPY trades will be for 2 weeks or less.

 

The last subject today is the question of whether or not the Oil has decoupled from the market.  There have been days where they don’t really correlate as they did late last year, but the overwhelming issue for me is, has the fundamental picture changed?  Clearly the US$ has weakened and the inflation picture has somewhat cooled, but while the market has had both up days and down days without the oil,  I don’t believe that the supply side of the equation is even close to being in balance with demand.  Oil has slowed and the relative strength in many of the big oil stocks has waned.  While it will undoubtedly be cheaper to shop for new reserves from Wall Street rather than drilling, I also expect that there aren’t many big oils with the cash.  However, I am still very bullish on APC since they are one of the best with a great portfolio of properties on their books..CAM

Market Strategies $100,000 Trading Account

     

There were three closed out option positions:

 

S&P March 24th 200 Puts were sold at $ 1.04 for a profit of $ 552

SUN March 27.50 Puts expired worthless losing $ 285 against our profitable long position.

AA march 9 Calls expired calling away the long position of 500 Alcoa making a gain of $ 225.

 

There were three closed stock positions:

 

Alcoa made $ 375 and the

CUBA was sold Friday at $ 8.02 for a gain of $ 220 while the

VRX lost $ 270.

 

The result for the entire week was a net loss of $ 392.

 

For the entire year on closed out trades, our profits decreased to $ 7,111.

 

The options expire on the third Friday of each Month unless otherwise posted.

 

The Stock table has the following 22 positions:

 

AA, APC(2), BAC.B.WS,  BSBR( 2 ), EYES, LVLT, MOS,   NBGGY (3), REPR,  SAN, SCO, STNG,SUN,TEXQY, TWTR,  VA: short 3 SUN Calls

 

The options call for a $ 2,500 investment unless otherwise stated.

Each stock position requires $5,000 unless otherwise mentioned specifically.

 

We are basing money management on a hypothetical  $ 100,000 using a total of $ 78,991

for the 20 open long stock positions plus a credit of $900 for the SUN written Calls, which reduces the requirement to $ 78,091. The JPM Calls require $ 1320. This increases the margin requirement to

$ 79,411 leaving $ 20,589 in cash.

 

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, North American Tankers, STNG, Santander, their Brazil affiliate BSBR and Blue Capital Reinsurance which was sold for a profit and many others.                                                         

 

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.

 

 

Previous Week’s Recommendations and

Rules for the Market Strategies

Market Strategies news

 

Market Strategies Fundamentals

The Dow and S&P made their best close  of the year  again for the second consecutive week and highest high since early January 4th for the Dow and Jan 5th for the S&P, both moving near the close. The Dow moved up 389 points and when added to the previous week’s gain of 206.54 points made a total of 595 points for the two weeks or or + 3.5%. The S&P 500 added  27 points last week which made a total of 22.20 points for the previous week making a net gain of 49.59 points or  2.53%. The Sand P now trades at a 17x multiple with a dividend yield of 2.17%. Both closed above their 200 day moving average resistance levels. The week’s top performers were unstoppable including Boeing ( BA: $ 133.96 ) + 7 .51%; Nike ( NKE: $ 62.99 ) + 4.8%; Caterpillar ( CAT: $ 75.47 ) + 3.7%; Apple ( AAPL: $ 105.92 ) + 3.58%; IBM ( IBM $ 147.09 ) + 3.4% and Chevron ( CVX: $ 97.69 ) + 3.3%.

The Dow Jones 20 Transportation Index was very strong, up 382.60 points last week, almost + 5%, having made 423 points of gains for the two weeks catapulting above its 200 day m.a.  The Nasdaq gained 47 points and when added to gains of the previous week made 78 points for the two weeks or 1.66%, still well below its 200 day moving average and lagging by a big measure the Tranny, Dow and S&P.

The Russell was barely changed plus 14.12 when added to the previous week’s gain of 5.62 make just about 20 points or 1.9% for the past two weeks.

Volatility has dropped sharply over the past two weeks to 19.35 from 30.85 February 11th, a decrease of 37%. The UVXY, a triple multiple ETF went from a high of 61.92 to 23.50 currently.

Treasuries made a substantial move from last Friday’s close led by shorter term maturities.  The 5 yr Note yield fell 0.15%, the 10-yr fell 0.11% while the long bond yields fell 0.07%.

The dollar Index traded poorly just the opposite of the bonds closing at 95.06, down 1.14 points for the week or down 1.2%. At the beginning of the month it was trading above 98. The Fed will likely get some much needed inflation from all of this positive market action.

A new set of leaders is emerging among Value oriented stocks like Colgate Palmolive, Church and Dwight, Kimberly Clark, Procter and Gamble and Verizon, while the Biotechs, formerly the leaders now take a back seat. The Nasdaq Biotech Index Fund ( IBB: 251.34 ) had retreated from its high of 400.79 July 20th, 2015.

 

        

The S&P is into weekly and monthly resistance at current levels and a reaction is overdue. However, volatility has come down sharply and daily moves might be less turbulent as the markets consolidate.

The Federal Reserve confirmed what we all knew intuitively, that the U.S. could not raise rates at a normalized pace, at a time when the rest of the world embraced negative interest rates and implemented ever more exotic asset buying techniques and quantitative easing programs. The Fed’s recent meeting made it clear, that now more than ever,  the Federal Reserve is the central banker to the world.

The market rally the past week was led by value oriented stocks leading faith based stocks by a wide margin using daily, weekly and monthly comparisons: The value stocks are trading at or near daily, weekly, monthly and  yearly highs: Verizon ( VZ: $ 53.24 ) + $ 0.71; Church and Dwight ( CHD: $ 91.73 ) + $ 0.75 ; Colgate Palmolive ( CL: $ 70.48 ) + 2.11. Procter and Gamble ( PG: $ 83.15 ) + 1.40 and Kimberly Clark ( KMB: $ 135.54 ) + 2.39 are all trading at 2016 highs. Faith based stocks like Amazon ( AMZN: $ 552.08 ) were down – $ 18.68. over the month.  Amazon has a PE of 442, while NetFlix ( NFLX: $ 101.12 )  has a PE of 361.

Verizon has a PE of 12 and Procter and Gamble 28. Church and Dwight has a PE of 29.88; Colgate Palmolive 46 and Kimberly Clark 49. None of them are cheap and seem overbought regardless of whether they are value oriented or faith-based.

Concomitantly, Biotech stocks remained relatively weak influenced by the problems facing Valeant Pharmaceuticals ( VRX: $ 26.98 ) – $ 42.57 last week and careening down -$236.83 points from its high of $ 263.81 on August 6th of this year.

Oil stocks were mixed even though oil prices rose more than 5%. Chevron Corp ( CVX: $ 97.69 ) with a market cap of $ 177Bln rallied $ 3.11 or +3.3%, while Exxon Mobil ( XOM $ 84.20 ) + $ 2.01 or + 2.5% may have made a double top at $ 84.60 level. BP ( BP $ 31.33 ) + 2.6%  had a nice week surging above its 50 day price moving average at $ 29.95.

Market Strategies Economic Data

Retail sales declined 0.1% in February as expected while sales, excluding autos, also declined 0.1% (Briefing.com consensus estimate -0.2%).The minus signs aren’t comforting to see, yet the added source of discomfort is that January retail sales were revised lower. Specifically, total retail sales for January were revised to -0.4% from +0.2% while sales excluding autos were revised to -0.2% from +0.1%, all of which will be a negative for first quarter GDP.

The February report saw its share of minus signs in it, the most prominent of which was the 4.4% decline in gasoline station sales, which weighed on the overall result.

The retail categories that did enjoy sales gains were building materials (+1.6%), sporting goods (+1.2%), food services and drinking places (+1.0%), clothing and accessories (+0.9%), and health and personal care stores (+0.7%). Core retail sales, which exclude gasoline station, auto, and building material sales were up just 0.1% and were revised down to a 0.1% decline in January (from +0.4%).

Industrial Production declined 0.5% in February (Briefing.com consensus -0.3%) after increasing a downwardly revised 0.8% in January (from 0.9%). Capacity Utilization also fell in February to 76.7% from77.1% in January with less demand for heating. The capacity utilization rate for utilities fell to 74.8% from 78.0%.

The downturn in February was fueled by large declines in the indexes for both utilities (-4.0%) and mining (-1.4%). The former was the result of unseasonably warm weather, which lowered the demand for heating, while the latter was a byproduct of decreases in crude oil extraction, coal mining, and oil and gas well drilling and servicing.

The silver lining in the report is that manufacturing output increased 0.2% on top of a 0.5% increase in January. That uptick was led by a 0.4% increase for durable manufacturing, which offset a 0.1% decrease for nondurable manufacturing. Total manufacturing output was up 1.8% year-over-year.

Manufacturing capacity utilization was unchanged at 76.1%, which is 2.4 percentage points below its long-run average.

Housing starts in February climbed 5.2 percent to a 1.18 million annualized rate from a 1.12 million pace the prior month, a Commerce Department report showed Wednesday in Washington. The median forecast of 78 economists surveyed by Bloomberg was 1.15 million. Permits, a proxy for future construction, fell, suggesting any additional gains in coming months will be limited. New-home construction in the U.S. rose more than economists forecast in February, led by the strongest single-family building in more than eight years, signaling continued confidence in demand for residential real-estate.

Steady employment growth and a low level of layoffs are creating the kind of job security needed to help households feel comfortable buying a home. An improvement in the selection of available properties, in addition to a pickup in wage growth, will be important in helping lure more first-time buyers and shift the housing recovery into a higher gear.

The Housing Starts report provided some good news with respect to first quarter GDP forecasts. That good news was wrapped up in the number of homes under construction, which jumped to 987,000 from 978,000 in January. The first quarter average here is 983,000 versus the fourth quarter average of 962,000.

The three-month moving average for housing starts held steady at 1.152 million.

Market Strategies Cycles

Historically, this holiday shortened week has a bullish bias while next week, the week after Easter, has a bearish bias. From page 88 of Stock Trader’s Almanac 2016, the days before Good Friday are generally positive and in the table below you can see that the shortened week also has a bullish slant.

 

 

We expect a Choppy week ahead followed by end of March weakness beginning next week. In addition the upcoming economic news is expected to be negative. The markets are overbought technically into weekly overhead resistance and are due for a setback.

 

According to Stock Market Analyst and Ned Davis research, we are ( technically ) in a secular bear market which will likely be in store for more downside action over the next couple of years beginning with the new administration before reaching significant new highs on the major U.S. market indices. In the short term the STA expects some typical end-of-March, end-of-Q1 weakness. Then the market should to rally modestly into the end of the “Best Six Months” to just shy of the 2015 all-time highs in April/May, followed by weakness into the summer around the presidential conventions. New highs of course,  if that were to occur, would cause both the STA and Ned Davis to cancel the bear consideration.

 

Once we have only two candidates and a final winner, some uncertainty will be removed and the market will likely rally into yearend as the last seven months of election year have suffered only two losses since 1952 (STA 2016, page 32), however, once again falling short of new highs and leaving 2016 basically flat. For 2017-2018 the STA expects some rather rough market action with a retreat to the area of the 2007 highs on the DJIA and S&P and 3500-4000 NASDAQ.

 

The Stock Market Analyst believes that we are still in a secular bear market. Secular bull and bear markets do not begin and end at their highest and lowest points. Most agree that August 1982 was the end of the last secular bear market, not October or December 1974. The low point of the economy and the bottom of the stock market now appears to be behind us. But bullish factors have yet to align. The war on terror is still raging, a paradigm shifting dynamic technology has yet to emerge and inflation is subdued. The CPI has risen just 34% since 2001 and has not budged in the last several years. We are still plagued by political dysfunction and the next administration is likely to have a rather tough go of it before we can get back to some real bipartisan leadership and policy initiatives.

Undervalued Small Cap Stocks

 

Lower Priced stocks that look to be a buy:

 

Repro-Med Systems, Inc ( OTCQX:  REPR 0.33 )*  

 

Repro Med Systems, Inc. dba RMS Medical Products (OTCQX: REPR) has been one of the best performing stocks in 2016. They announced that its net revenues for the third quarter ended November 30 for fiscal 2016 increased 18% over the previous year’s Q3, led by the Company’s sales of proprietary infusion products. The Company’s current fiscal year ends February 29, 2016.

Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 were $3,145,000 compared with $2,655,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2015. Revenues for the first nine months of the fiscal 2016 were $8,942,000 compared with $7,797,000 for the same period last year, an increase of 15%.

RMS continues to benefit from recent lean manufacturing initiatives, which have resulted in increased capacity and decreased direct assembly labor costs compared to last year. Gross margin improved in fiscal Q3 to 67% from 60% in the same quarter last year, and from 63% in fiscal Q2.

Driven by the strong sales in the quarter, net income for the third quarter was $168,000, an improvement of 81% compared with the same period last year. In addition, net income was negatively impacted due to costs associated with several trade shows in the quarter, the hiring of new sales representatives, and continued legal and consulting fees, all of which reflect an investment for growth in future periods. Excluding certain of these non-recurring items, net income margin would have been in excess of 10% for the quarter.

“We continue to see growth in all sectors of the homecare infusion market both domestically and internationally,” commented Andy Sealfon, President and CEO of the company. “I am also very excited about our newest board member, Cyril N. Narishkin and have appointed him as Interim Chief Operating Office to support our expanded management team and accelerate our growth opportunities. Cyril brings a wealth of experience consulting with companies of all sizes, and will also be instrumental in assisting the Company on its lean initiatives and growth plans,” Mr. Sealfon added.

The Company manufactures medical products used for infusions and suctioning. The Infusion product portfolio currently includes the FREEDOM60(R) and our latest FreedomEdge(TM) 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.

The Company’s website may be visited at www.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.
