My Top 5 Holdings

Hi, I know I've been quiet, but there hasn't been much to say lately. The Yellow Alert is still in effect. The Russell 2000 has validated this by remaining stuck in a trading range for over 4 months. I focus on risk/reward charts, so I'm not going to predict if the market will correct (drop [...]

Trump Trumped: Now What?

In my most-recent Seeking Alpha update, I said that "investors can find big winners amid the rubble of recent tax-loss losers. On top of the move being overdone, it's becoming clear that tax reform may not come until 2018 (due to the time and challenges involved with repealing/replacing Obamacare). Thus, a reversal could be looming. [...]

Ways To Buy Near Market Highs

At present, I officially remain on "Yellow Alert". As a reminder, a "Yellow Alert" is when the markets reach elevated Risk/Reward levels, regardless of fundamental strength (which we currently see in the economy). Of course, it's much more fun to remain an unfettered bull during a bull market - I picked about a dozen stocks [...]

Here’s Why The Market Rally Has Left Small Caps Behind

With President Trump's desire to lower corporate taxes and America-first agenda, one would think that small caps would be benefiting the most. After all, smaller companies actually (and ironically) pay higher taxes. They are also more insulated from trade wars (because they don't do as much business overseas) and better positioned to benefit from an [...]

Access Poised To Triple + Some Portfolio Moves

You Can Still Access Poised To Triple As some of you might have noticed, the PoisedToTriple and PTTResearch websites have both gone dark. Before that happened, I sent emails to my partners (who hold control over these website / domains), and their attorney, to ensure that we maintained these sites for customers while resolving our [...]

A New Pick To Triple?

I just read that Warren Buffet underperformed the market in 3 out of 4 years during the 70s. During that stretch he underperformed by a cumulative 47%. Yes, forty-seven percent. That would be enough to make many people quit investing. However, when you're investing properly, underperformance is an inevitable risk and occasional occurrence. The reason [...]

Market Update + Mattersight

Charts Topping Out While investor sentiment reaches relatively extreme levels (which is traditionally bearish), the indexes are all within one percentage point of hitting the top of my Risk/Reward channels: I've been cautious for a couple months, which hasn't seemed like the right thing to do. However, I know two things: 1) being cautious doesn't [...]

MATR, RSYS, A Short, & More

Here's my latest update. Enjoy! Mattersight Comes Through & Discovers Conservatism Wednesday night, Mattersight (NASDAQ:MATR) announced Q4 results. They beat on the top and bottom line for the second straight quarter (after four straight misses). However, they lowered expectations for 2017. This disappointed some investors, but it appeased me. Apparently, it appeased others, as well. [...]

Sentiment May Sink The Ship

As usual, Lance Roberts is out with another insightful missive. Among the data points, I found that I could add some value to his blurb on investor sentiment. Long ago, I did a study on investor sentiment. In the end, I determined that a high level of positive sentiment is not enough to serve as a reliable market-correction [...]
