Signal

Stocks in extreme levels of price trend should be allowed to move out of the extreme range before a buy or sell decision should be made. As is the case for most trending momentum style stocks, much of the price action is not often known until well into the price trend. But earnings growth and management efficiency are key components to a foundation to a sustainable uptrend. We will focus on fundamental indications that can build a case for reasons why the stock should continue its current trend.


Strength Rank

Rank is the rank of the stock vs. its peers. For example a Rank of 98 means the stock is out performing 98% of its peers over a 12 month period. A rank of 2 means the stock is outperforming 2% of its peers, in other words, 98% of its peers are out performing it. 98 is good, 2 is not so good. The current quarter is 40% of the weighting, so current performance is more significant to the rank.

The current rank for Acacia Res-Acacia is 41, this means that ACTG is out performing 41% of its peers. Stocks that have a rank of 80 or better, with support of all other analyses shown here, tend to advance the trend.

The 90 day trend of Rank

ROE - Return on equity is a measure of financial efficiency, gauging how much profit a company is able to generate from the company financial net worth (that is, assets minus liabilities). Look for an annual return on equity of at least 20%. That is the level that set apart the winning stocks from the ordinary. That doesn't always mean that a company with smaller ROE is a poor investment. Some big winners have of course been shy of 20% return on equity when they started their major up trends. When ROE is strong, it gives investors an indication that the company is better poised to continue a solid earnings performance. A high ROE is only part of the fundamentals a solid company should have. Superb earnings and sales growth, superior profit margins and big operating cash flow are other key elements investors must seek.

The Current ROE for Acacia Res-Acacia is 6.1%, indicating ACTG is currently functioning with Average financial efficiency.

The 12 month chart trend of ROE

Annual EPS Growth - Companies with annual earnings growth of more than 20% are more likely to become leaders in up trending markets. While 20% Annual EPS growth is the minimum you should look for, don't be afraid to seek even better results. Studies have shown that the greatest winners in the past 30 years had an average 30% annual EPS growth rate when they started their strong up trends. You also can look for three straight years of rising EPS growth, with an average of at least 25%. These performance results often imply that a company is growing fast even if the general economy is slowing down or even in recession.

The current Annual EPS Growth for Acacia Res-Acacia is 0.32% which is less than the 30% average found is strong trending, fundamentally sound companies.

The 12 month chart trend of Annual EPS Growth

Quarterly EPS Growth - Outstanding earnings growth in the most recent quarters can be the single most important trait that identifies winners before they start their major price advances. Generally, the bigger the earnings growth, the better. Specifically, look for a company's earnings per share up at least 25-30% vs. the year-ago level in the most recent quarter or two. Gains of 50%, 100% or more are typical of strong market leaders even before they make their huge price moves. There's really nothing magic about this connection. Successful companies generate the strongest profit gains, regardless of the economic cycle. Even during periods when corporate profits are weak in general, you still find standouts that achieve massive earnings growth.

The current Quarterly EPS Growth for Acacia Res-Acacia is -225% which is less than the 25% average found is strong trending stocks even during or before huge price moves.

The 12 month chart trend of Quarterly EPS Growth

Quarterly Sales growth - A company's annual and quarterly rate of increase in revenues (sales). A measure of growth and success as long as it is accompanied by an equally strong rate of increase in earnings per share. You want to see both in a potential investment. A company's quarterly EPS gain should be supported by an increase in revenue (sales) of at least 25% or at least by an acceleration in sales growth in the past few quarters. You also should watch out for earnings growth that comes amid falling sales. Companies with declining revenue often boost their EPS results through layoffs or other cost cuts, especially in an uncertain economic environment. But this isn't a sustainable approach, and it's definitely not as desirable as profit gains that come from higher revenue. Recent quarterly sales results are more critical when it comes to researching stocks.

The current Quarterly Sales Growth for Acacia Res-Acacia is -59.7% which is less than the 25% average found is strong trending stocks.

Backtesting a stock can provide investors with critical statistical data. These results give you an informed perspective on how a stock trades within your chosen buying and selling method of analysis. The definition of trade expectancy is defined as: trade expectancy = (probability of win * average win) - (probability of loss * average loss). If the calculation returns a positive number, a trader should make money over time.

The average percentage gained on positive, money making trades was 21.74%. While the average percent loss on money losing trades was 4.59%.

Trade expectancy includes both winners and losers. Trade expectancy is displayed as a percentage. This backtest displays the dollar value, percentage, annual trade expectancy, and annual percent. Annual expectancy is the trade expectancy percentage multiplied by the number of trades per year.

The Trade expectancy % for ACTG over the past year is 1.99%. The number of trades generated per year was 4 giving an Annual Trade Expectancy of 7.97%

The average days in a trade is 41 and the average days between trades is 51.

With any method of analysis that uses past performance, it can be said that past performance is not indication of future performance. What is does provide is a probabilistic look at a stock's price activity characteristics over time.

OPTION PLAY: YUM CHINA HOLDINGS ($YUMC) NYSE

YUM CHINA HOLDINGS Options Play

Yum China Holdings, Inc. operates as a restaurant company in China. The company operates primarily through KFC and Pizza Hut Casual Dining segments. It operates approximately 7,500 restaurants in approximately 1,100 cities. YUMC reports earnings on July 5th, 2017 let us look at a strategy to capitalize on the earnings report.


YUMC Technicals

Technically, the chart looks phenomenal! From the Dynamic Trend Indicator  YUMC meets all the criteria for a long or if already long stay with the trend. The multiple time frame analysis confirms positive momentum with price above the wave. Overhead resistance is at 42.12 which YUMC is currently on the path to new highs. Usually when a stock is approaching new highs weak hands will try to short it leading to a breakout on volume to new highs as the shorts will have to cover. Remember, we want to be strong hands as smart traders and not fight the trend!
As of June 29th, 2017, YUMC is trading at 38.70 with the expected move for July option expiration is $3.00 I can find the expected move by adding the ATM straddle for the week of expiration.  Therefore, if I add 38.70 + 3.00= 41.70 as an upside target for an options play expiring on July expiration.

YUMC Options Trade idea:

I am bullish on YUMC using the Dynamic Trend Indicator with a price target of 41.70 Therefore, I can develop a trade that will take advantage of my expected move with limited capital requirements. The July 40 calls are trading at .90 debit, I am looking to buy these and sell the July 42.5 calls at .30. This strategy is a bull call spread for a .60 debit (.90-30 =.60) My max loss on the trade is $60 per contract with my max gain being $1.90. This trade offers limited risk with 3-1 risk vs reward set up if YUMC trades at or above 42.5 by July option expiration. 
Have An Awesome Day!

OPTION TRADING OF THE DAY: BEST BUY ($BBY) NYSE

How to Trade BBY Stock

With earnings fading in the distance, implied volatility has returned to lowly levels once more. Best Buy’s IV Rank currently sits at 17%, and that means options are cheap.
Let’s try a long call spread to capitalize.
Buy the Aug $55/$57.50 bull call spread for $1.32 or better. The risk is limited to the initial cost and will be forfeited if the stock sits below $55 at expiration.
If BBY stock can rise past $57.50 by expiration (a mere 2% away), the spread will deliver a return of $1.18 at expiration.
By risking $1.32 to capture $1.18, we have the potential to capture a 89% return over the next 53 days.

These results give you an informed perspective on how a stock trades within your chosen buying and selling method of analysis. The definition of trade expectancy is defined as: trade expectancy = (probability of win * average win) - (probability of loss * average loss). If the calculation returns a positive number, a trader should make money over time.

The average percentage gained on positive, money making trades was 3.34%. While the average percent loss on money losing trades was 1.28%.

Trade expectancy includes both winners and losers. Trade expectancy is displayed as a percentage. This backtest displays the dollar value, percentage, annual trade expectancy, and annual percent. Annual expectancy is the trade expectancy percentage multiplied by the number of trades per year.

The Trade expectancy % for VIVO over the past year is 0.26%. The number of trades generated per year was 5 giving an Annual Trade Expectancy of 1.31%

The average days in a trade is 33 and the average days between trades is 38.

With any method of analysis that uses past performance, it can be said that past performance is not indication of future performance. What is does provide is a probabilistic look at a stock's price activity characteristics over time.

TRADE OF THE WEEK: BUY CROCS INC. ($CROX) NASDAQ


Trade Ideas technology points to another possible trend change that is breaking out of a range and above all the key moving averages. Crocs Inc. (CROX) is showing up as a stock that wants to break free from a tight range on the daily charts and does not have earnings until early August.




The Trade of the Week is considered live at 7.45. CROX closed at 7.42 on Friday. The suggested stop will be a trade below 7.05. The upside target on this will be 9.00. Risking 45 cents to make $1.50 is always a good risk/reward ratio on position trades. As usual, please allow for the proper share sizing of your account. Buy only enough shares that would equal your maximum dollar loss should CROX trade below 7.05.

Footnote:   This is a table showing the maximum profit for all past 2017 Trades of the Week. Timing the top is impossible but this table shows how much alpha was possible when considering the exit of these positions. The trades outlined in red eventually hit their suggested stop prices, so you can see the importance of timing and harvesting profits along the way when you can, especially those that move above 10%.



*Assumptions

Targets are not absolute. Targets involve timing. Profits can and should be harvested along the way.
Risk to Reward ratio ideal is 1:3
Trades of the week that do not reach entry prices are not considered live and are expired at the end of the current week. (ORCL and JNPR)
TOW Rules: 20% Rule.  If a performance is up 10% and gives back 20%, take the 8 and run. (Profit Save, Trailing Stop).

Stocks that gap up over the entry price are considered up to the discretion of the buyer as to the entry price (WETF)


Happy investing!

Long term trends are key to understanding the starting point to the path of least resistance of a stocks price trend. The expected future trend bias is always strongest with the current trend.

Signal

The current signal for Health Insurance Inn is BUY indicating that the stock could be Advancing in its trend. The current price trend is not Extreme. Stocks in extreme levels of price trend should be allowed to move out of the extreme range before a buy or sell decision should be made. As is the case for most trending momentum style stocks, much of the reason price action is not often known until well into the price trend. But earnings growth and management efficiency are key components to a foundation to a sustainable uptrend. We will focus on fundamental indications that can build a case for reasons why the stock should continue its current trend.

Strength Rank

Rank is the rank of the stock vs. its peers. For example a Rank of 98 means the stock is out performing 98% of its peers over a 12 month period. A rank of 2 means the stock is outperforming 2% of its peers, in other words, 98% of its peers are out performing it. 98 is good, 2 is not so good. The current quarter is 40% of the weighting, so current performance is more significant to the rank.

The current rank for Health Insurance Inn is 99, this means that HIIQ is out performing 99% of its peers. Stocks that have a rank of 80 or better, with support of all other analyses shown here, tend to advance the trend.

The 90 day trend of Rank

ROE - Return on equity is a measure of financial efficiency, gauging how much profit a company is able to generate from the company"s financial net worth (that is, assets minus liabilities). Look for an annual return on equity of at least 20%. That is the level that set apart the winning stocks from the ordinary. That doesn't always mean that a company with smaller ROE is a poor investment. Some big winners have of course been shy of 20% return on equity when they started their major up trends. When ROE is strong, it gives investors an indication that the company is better poised to continue a solid earnings performance. A high ROE is only part of the fundamentals a solid company should have. Superb earnings and sales growth, superior profit margins and big operating cash flow are other key elements investors must seek.

The Current ROE for Health Insurance Inn is 20.05%, indicating HIIQ is currently functioning with High financial efficiency.

The 12 month chart trend of ROE
Annual EPS Growth - Companies with annual earnings growth of more than 20% are more likely to become leaders in up trending markets. While 20% Annual EPS growth is the minimum you should look for, don't be afraid to seek even better results. Studies have shown that the greatest winners in the past 30 years had an average 30% annual EPS growth rate when they started their strong up trends. You also can look for three straight years of rising EPS growth, with an average of at least 25%. These performance results often imply that a company is growing fast even if the general economy is slowing down or even in recession.

The current Annual EPS Growth for Health Insurance Inn is 1.31% which is less than the 30% average found is strong trending, fundamentally sound companies.

The 12 month chart trend of Annual EPS Growth
Quarterly EPS Growth - Outstanding earnings growth in the most recent quarters can be the single most important trait that identifies winners before they start their major price advances. Generally, the bigger the earnings growth, the better. Specifically, look for a company's earnings per share up at least 25-30% vs. the year-ago level in the most recent quarter or two. Gains of 50%, 100% or more are typical of strong market leaders even before they make their huge price moves. There's really nothing magic about this connection. Successful companies generate the strongest profit gains, regardless of the economic cycle. Even during periods when corporate profits are weak in general, you still find standouts that achieve massive earnings growth.

The current Quarterly EPS Growth for Health Insurance Inn is 2.86% which is less than the 25% average found is strong trending stocks even during or before huge price moves.

The 12 month chart trend of Quarterly EPS Growth
Quarterly Sales growth - A company's annual and quarterly rate of increase in revenues (sales). A measure of growth and success as long as it is accompanied by an equally strong rate of increase in earnings per share. You want to see both in a potential investment. A company's quarterly EPS gain should be supported by an increase in revenue (sales) of at least 25% or at least by an acceleration in sales growth in the past few quarters. You also should watch out for earnings growth that comes amid falling sales. Companies with declining revenue often boost their EPS results through layoffs or other cost cuts, especially in an uncertain economic environment. But this isn't a sustainable approach, and it's definitely not as desirable as profit gains that come from higher revenue. Recent quarterly sales results are more critical when it comes to researching stocks.

The current Quarterly Sales Growth for Health Insurance Inn is 8.69% which is less than the 25% average found is strong trending stocks.

Dividend Yield

Dividend yield is the annual dividend income per share received from a company divided by its current share price. Normally investors would like to see a dividend yield between 2% and 20% for a dividend paying company. The dividend yield is an important factor to consider when investing in dividend paying stocks. Dividend yield is a financial ratio that reflects the % of profits a company makes of the dividend payments over the course of a year. For example if a stock pays an annual dividend of $2 and is trading at $50 a share, it would have a dividend yield of 4%.

The current Dividend Yield for Health Insurance Inn is 0.00.
