There is one position:


Long 4 FXE June 109 Puts


Funds in Use = $ 400



Still Wondering When ???


Funds in use are only $400.


In a week that the popular averages didn’t do much of anything.  We managed to make money on the short side again with gains on the balance of the SJM puts and the QQQ puts.  The point is that you have to be selective when deciding what stocks within the market of stocks you want to trade.  While the Dow was up .60%, and the S&P500 up .52%, the QQQ was LOWER  by 1.5%.


Often when we have a market that is overbought and extended with what seem to be confusing fundamentals we see groups of stocks (like the tech sector) that show weakness at different times.  Clearly Energy has taken the lead for this market while retail, or biotech show cracks in their façade.  While some call this rotation into stronger sectors, I would make the point that the Marco point of view, with the market near its highs, might also be considered topping out of what has been the strongest sectors.  The saying “flat tops bring drops” exists for a reason…But again, When is still the question??


Again, you really don’t want to try to fight the Fed, or the EU on the overall direction of the all the money that continues to get pumped into world markets, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t stocks that move lower.  It also doesn’t mean that we won’t participate on the upside.  We continue to look for the best trades in either direction.


We have also played the gold market several times this year, and it feels to me as if we have made an important bottom.  That doesn’t exclude hard and fast selloffs.  I am looking to be a buyer of the metal in the $1190-1210 level if it gets there.  The problem for me is that as long as bonds remain weak we should have some strength in the US$.  This puts me at odds with the conventional wisdom since I am also short the Euro via the FXE 6/109 put position.  What the current setup doesn’t take into consideration is that in this new world order we have the constant threat of terrorism every single day.  This is one of the issues that also effect gold in a major way.  As long as I can continue to buy at support with good stop protection we will be right there…CAM

For those of you who do not buy puts to protect your portfolio, there are many ETF’s that are the inverse of the DOW. The symbols are DOG, DXD, SDS,TZA and RWM, which go up when the  DOW, S&P 500 and Russell 2000 go down and down when they go up. The DZZ goes up double when gold goes down.


Market Strategies $100,000 Trading Account

There were three closed option positions:

SJM May 125 Puts were sold on two dates making a gain of $ 644 and $ 384.

QQQ May 109 Puts gained $ 328.

The total profit for the three close-outs was $1,336.


There were no closed out stock positions.


The result for the entire week was a net gain of $ 1,336.


For the entire year on closed out trades, our profits increased to $15,880


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



The Stock table has the following 22 positions:




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 $78,575

for the 21 open long stock positions plus a credit of $900 for the SUN written Calls, which

reduces the requirement to $ 77,675.

The Open Option Position requires $ 800. This increases the margin requirement to $ 78,475,

leaving $ 21,525 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, 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.


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

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 106.29 points or +0.59& to a lofty 18,003.75; its first close above the 18,000 level since July21st. The Transportation Average did even better gaining 107.75 points or + 1.35% to 8,085.98. The Russell 2000 added 15.77 points or 1.39% to 1146.69 and closing above its 200 day moving average for the first time since mid-July.The S&P 500 was also higher gaining 11 points to just about 2092. It was only the Nasdaq Index that spoiled the party as the tech laden index declined 32 points or 0.65%.

The volatility indexes were all lower. The VIX ( VXX: 16.00 ) – 0.93 or -5.8% continued lower, while the more volatile UVXY ( 15.51 ) – 1.93 or -11.1% virtually gave not the least bit of movement to the upside. Lower volatility is a bullish environment for equities.

Stocks cannot break with volatility so low, a pain to many abundant bears so sure that stocks are going to break. The tech sector has certainly given them hope as the faith based stocks such as Apple, Alphabet and Netflix have been very weak, while both Apple and Facebook have earnings this week. Apple ( AAPL: $ 105.68 ) -$ 4.17 or -3.8% set the stage with early weakness for techs to falter. Then came Netflix ( NFLX $ 95.90 ) – $ 15.61 or -14% and Alphabet ( GOOG: $ 719 ) down $ 40 or -5.3%. to complete a scary week for the tech sector. Apple earnings come Tuesday after the close and a $ 2 earnings number is expected  some 14% below a year ago with dismal top line sales also expected.

Divergence between what appears to be deteriorating financial conditions such as poor tech earnings,and low volatility whci supprts the price of stocks is liely to continue. Flat tops creat market drops is an old accronym that has been accurate more often. We are getting such action in tech stocks but value stocks are consistently gaining strength. There is more likely a shift in leadership rather than a major direction change in equities.


Many times in recent years, even as the market traded just a couple percentage points away from all time highs, we’ve seen investor sentiment readings get nearly as bearish as they were at the lows of the financial crisis. That’s not supposed to happen, and it’s happening here again as the S&P is 2% from the all- time high. History tells me investor sentiment has turned extremely bullish at market peaks, which is a tell-tale sign that a downturn is near. One of the reasons to have remained bullish over the last few years is because of how depressed market sentiment is. You just don’t see the market put a top in when sentiment is overly negative.


The red circled area indicates the low Fund manager positioning compared to other points in time. The green shaded area corresponding to these low levels in the past have been a precursor for higher prices as shown in the chart.

The reason for the high cash levels is revealed by a recent Bank of America Fund Manager Survey. Investors are still pessimistic, with only 10% expecting a stronger economy in the next year. This explains the low allocations to equities and high allocations to cash.

As far as individual investors are concerned, the market saw $4.8b outflow from equity funds this week. Cash outflows have been negative12 of the past 15 weeks. The $2b inflow to taxable bond funds has been positive 14 of past 15 weeks.

During the past month, cash balances have risen and allocations to equities have declined. If one is a contrarian that supports the case for higher equity prices in the period weeks or months ahead.

Allocations to US equities remain near an 8 year low, a level from which the U.S. should continue to outperform. A weakish dollar is necessary to fuel a buoyant stock market.

In order to begin answering the question, it is helpful to return to basics. What was the driver of the dollar’s rally? There are many different narratives, but the most compelling one focused on the divergence between the US and nearly the rest of the world. The US responded early and aggressively to the Great Financial Crisis, and this produced superior economic outcomes.

For example, the US began an asset program to expand monetary support after the Fed’s policy rate was near zero in 2009. Europe and Japan began several years later. The US began tapering its purchases before the ECB launched its asset purchase program. The Federal Reserve raised the Fed funds target range while the ECB and BOJ were still in the process of expanding their unorthodox policies, which include negative policy rates.

Market Strategies Economic Data

Initial Claims were 247,000 for the week ending April 16 (Briefing.com consensus 263,000), a decrease of 6,000 from the prior week’s unrevised level. There were no special factors influencing the initial claims reading. The 4-week moving average for Initial Claims fell to 260,500 from 25,000. This latest reading is the lowest level of initial claims since November 24, 1973 and marked the 59th straight week claims have been below 300,000, which is the longest streak since 1973. From the latest reading, the four-week moving average for initial claims fell to 260,500 from 265,000.

Continuing Claims for the week ended April 9th  dropped by 39,000 to 2.137 million. The four-week moving average for Continuing Claims is 2.169 million, which is the lowest level since November 11, 2000.

The claims data is a clear reflection of a strong labor market. Hourly wages have followed more slowly. Higher wages would negatively impact corporate earnings. Target stores have followed Wal-Mart in raising wages.

Markit’s U.S. manufacturing PMI fell to 50.8 in April from 51.5 in March. The April reading was the lowest since September 2009. The Eurozone’s PMI fell just 0.1% in April to 51.5 down from 51.6% in March, however, better than the U.S. reading. The Dollar gained Friday 0.57% to  95.12  mostly against the yen as the Bank of Japan agreed to offer negative interest rate loans to banks to offset the costs of negative interest rate policy. Polls in the UK for membership in the European Union are turning to the “Remain” side following President Obama’s visit and his making a case for staying.

Leading Economic Indicators increased 0.2% in March.  That was less than the Briefing.com consensus estimate, which called for a 0.4% increase.  The added disappointment in the report is that February was revised lower to show a 0.1% decline after an originally reported 0.1% increase.

The biggest contributors to the March increase were stock prices (0.24 percentage points) and the interest rate spread (0.17 percentage points). They were offset to a certain degree by building permits, which subtracted 0.25 percentage points.

The building permits impact effectively accounted for much of the difference between the consensus estimate and the actual number. The building permits data for March was released earlier in the week. The other two components estimated by the Conference Board were manufacturers’ new orders and nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft. Neither was accorded much strength as the estimated contributions were 0.01 and 0.03 percentage points, respectively.

Separately, the Coincident Economic Index remained unchanged in March while the Lagging Economic Index increased 0.4%. The report is showing slow but not slowing economic growth.

Market Strategies Cycles


As of yesterday’s close DJIA was up 3.9% year-to-date; S&P 500 was up 2.9%, NASDAQ down 1.2% and Russell 2000 was up just 0.6% which creates the relatively unique situation where DJIA and S&P 500 are outperforming both NASDAQ and Russell 2000. In 45 years since 1971, DJIA and S&P 500 have bettered NASDAQ and Russell 2000 just eleven times (Russell 2000 eight times since 1979) over the course of the full year. Seven of those eleven years were flat to downright ugly. Only 1975, 1986, 1989 and 1997 were above average years.


Generally the Russell 2000 and NASDAQ tend to be comprised of U.S. orientated companies of smaller size which are generally more sensitive to local economic conditions. Poor performance from these companies is suggestive of either current weakness or a tepid U.S. outlook. Additional strength from NASDAQ and Russell 2000 would go a long ways to confirm that the current rally has further room to run.


In consideration of the seasonal upcoming to: Sell in May and go away, there are three new short sale ideas from the Stock Trader’s Almanac. In selecting these candidates, the STA searched for negative revenue and earnings trends. Further restrictions included: a minimum average daily trading volume of at least 100,000 shares over the past 20 trading sessions, share price above $10 and a minimum market cap of $500 million. In addition, the STA focused on sectors that enter seasonally weak periods in the month of May. A hypothetical $ 2,000 will be allocated to each.


Invesco Ltd (IVZ) is a publicly-owned financial investment manager. The market’ struggles over the past year and a half or so have translated directly to declines in revenue and earnings. IVZ has missed earnings estimates for the last two quarters. IVZ could be shorted near projected monthly pivot point resistance at $32.55 or a breakdown below support at $29.77 with confirming negative stochastic, MACD, and relative strength indications. If shorted, set an initial stop loss 8% above the entry price.




Methanex Corp (MEOH) produces and supplies methanol globally. Revenue and earnings have been falling faster than analysts’ estimates. Earnings have missed for four straight quarters. Production has also been hindered in some areas by a lack of raw materials. MEOH could be shorted near resistance at $36.35 or on a breakdown below $29.28 with confirming negative stochastic, MACD, and relative strength indications. If shorted, set an initial stop loss 8% above the entry price.



Virtus Investment Partners (VRTS) is another publicly traded investment manager that has struggled with the investment landscape over the past year plus. Revenue and earnings are forecast to decline this quarter and beyond. VRTS could be shorted near resistance at $81.45 or on a breakdown below $67.29 with confirming negative stochastic, MACD, and relative strength indications. If shorted, set an initial stop loss 8% above the entry price.





The following stocks are favored to be long by the Stock Trader’ Almanac:


These are the Fab Five:


Global Brass and Copper Holdings ( BRSS: $ 26.66 ); Harley Davidson ( HOG: $ 48.57 ) Stein Mart

( SMRT: $ 7.37 ); Scotts Miracle Grow ( SMG: $ 21.13 ) Sunoco ( SUN: $ 36.06 ) and United Health

( UNH: $ 134.13 ).


Currently one of the the best performing open positions; Global Brass and Copper Holdings (BRSS) has resumed its march higher. Again today it is trading at new 52-week and all-time highs. A weaker U.S. dollar is lifting copper prices and giving many commodities a boost. Even Harley Davidson (HOG) has seen in healthy rally over the past three months from just over $35 per share in end-January to over $48 today. We would buy on any $ 3-4 set -back. Both BRSS and HOG are on Hold. The greenback needs to continue its slide for prices to maintain their upward momentum.


Stein Mart Inc (SMRT) was a stock added to the Small-Cap Portfolio last December. Other than a brief pop at the start of March, shares have done little less. Current strength has pushed SMRT back into positive territory..


Spring has arrived bringing with all warmer weather and yard work. Scotts Miracle-Gro (SMG) is a direct beneficiary and that fact is reflected in its recent performance. SMG traded at a new 52-week and all-time high in late March and remains within striking distance today. SMG should be bought on a dip to $ 67.


Sunoco ( SUN ) could easily go to $ 50. It is very cheap relative to fundamentals. Sunoco has held up well when other similar stocks like Valero ( VLO: $ 61.24 ) got battered. The company will find added support  from the arrival of spring and soon the summer driving season.


As a fuel wholesaler and retailer SUN is less exposed to the daily ups and downs of crude oil. Overall U.S. fuel demand and refining margins are what matters. Motor fuel demand is on the rise again as the summer driving season officially kicks off Memorial Day weekend. In the meantime shares pay a handsome dividend. We are and have been long SUN for several weeks.


United Health Group (UNH) reported first quarter earnings earlier today. Revenue rose 25% and adjusted earnings increased 17% despite losses from participating in Affordable Care Act (ACA) exchanges. UNH plans to exit all ACA exchanges in 2017. The company also enjoyed solid results from the Optum Health Care business.

Undervalued Small Cap Stocks

Lower Priced stocks that look to be a buy:

 Medical products stock

Repro-Med Systems, Inc ( OTCQX:  REPR 0.35 )*   

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.

This month the Company participated in the 25th Annual National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) Conference and Expo in New Orleans, LA and used the occasion to introduce its new “On-Line Calculator”, a tool to help determine which of the Company’s Precision Flow Rate Tubing™ and RMS HIgH-Flo Subcutaneous Needle Sets™ to use based on the medication being administered and desired time of infusion.


RMS Medical Products was one of 110 exhibitors in attendance at NHIA.   Customers responded well to the new calculator and expressed that the new format of the “On-Line Calculator”, which can be used on any computer, tablet, or mobile device, was easy to use and very helpful.  The marketing and sales teams continue to build new relationships and expand the Company’s customer base as evidenced by continued strong sales.

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 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.

Freedom Trucks shows that Oakridge can outperform Tesla and the “Tesla of trucks” – trucks are much more difficult and laborious to power than cars – because of the Oakridge high power high energy

dense batteries, we need only 180 OGES batteries to power the interstate truck that pulls an

80,000 lb trailer, whereas it would take 208,000 Tesla/Panasonic batteries, which is simply not feasible.

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.

Overseas, Oakridge Global Energy Solutions Limited (Hong Kong) is a subsidiary company that operates for sales and service in Asia.


Pluristem Therapeutics ( Nasdaq : PSTI: $ 1.76 )

A a leading developer of patented placenta-based cell therapy products through its (Placental expanded) platform. In 2016 PLX cells will enter pivotal trials aimed at marketing approval in two indications serving multi-billion dollar markets. Positive clinical trial data for the cells have been reported in multiple indications. PLC cells release a cocktail of therapeutic proteins in response to inflammation, ischemia, hematological disorders and radiation damage. The Company’s proprietary, three – dimensional expansion technology is used to grow the cells in mass quantities with batch-to-batch consistency at Pluristem’s FDA and EMA approved state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. The cells do not require tissue matching prior to administration, making the treatment cost effective and readily available in virtually any medical setting. Pluristem has a strong intellectual property position, GMP-certified manufacturing facilities, strong balance sheet and strategic relationships with major research institutions.

Japan’s Patent Office just granted Pluristem two key patents, which cover: 1) Pluristem’s core technology of three-dimensional expansion methods for producing therapeutic cell products derived from placental or fat cells; 2) the use of placenta-derived cell products grown with this 3D technology to treat disorders of the hematopoietic system* (see below for a bit of detail), such as disorders caused by exposure to radiation or chemotherapy, and failed engraftment of hematopoietic stem cell transplants. Pluristem continues to strengthen its IP position in order to support the current negotiations with pharmaceutical companies in Japan regarding potential partnerships for the development and commercialization of its Placental exanded (PLX) cells.

Key to their activities in Japan, and as is descried on the fact sheet, is that Pluristem received clearance for the protocol for a Phase 2 trial in critical limb ischemia targeting marketing approval in Japan, via Japan’s accelerated regulatory pathway for regenerative medicines. Having been accepted into that pathway, Pluristem is able to apply for conditional marketing approval after a single successful phase 2 study. If the Phase 2 results are positive and PLX-R18 gets approved on the basis of those data, they will not need to spend the years and millions of dollars on Phase 3 trials, but will have to collect “real world” data on patients who have been prescribed the drug to treat critical limb ischemia, once it hits the market. In any case, acquiring IP for all placenta-derived cell therapies is crucial to activities there, as is protection of Pluristem’s 3D manufacturing methods.


Gold Mining USA  OTC: GMUI ( 0.05 )

Has both mining activities in Australia and the U.S. as well as the Savannah Resort, a senior living facility in Queensland, Australia. For more information please go to their website www.gmuiinc.com.

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.

GMUI Strategy: The company uses strict investment criteria for project acquisitions and focuses on available tenements in proximity to operating mines, or in areas with proven or potential in-ground resources in regions suitable for short-term development. Projects are selected based upon historical drilling or sampling results combined with robust geological mining concepts and financial models. The projects are explored, analyzed and where required, brought into compliance to JORC/NI 43-101.

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.

An initial target acquisition, Mt Tymn, provides an opportunity to enter the gold mining arena in Australia on a small scale with the confidence of total outlay recovery and good profits, sufficient to expand operations by acquisition of similar nearby deposits to continue positive cash flow mining and commence an exploration program capable of even greater rewards.

Mt Tymn is located approximately 125kms southwest of Darwin, 1km east of the Stuart Highway and 18kms south of the Adelaide River. As part of this acquisition, GMUI will also own the MLs relating to Ringwood which is situated approximately 120 kms southeast of Darwin, in the Pine Creek area. The minimum gold resource at Mt Tymn is conservatively estimated at 227,000 ounces with large potential for further drilling and assessment. Gross revenue is estimated to be in excess of $ 300 million with a gross profit expected to exceed 45%.
