As our Members know, most stocks have periods of the year (same each year) that they make Bigger moves than usual. This might be due to a Holiday they specialize in .. OR .. a sales period they usually do well in .. OR .. a certain Quarterly Report they usually come out strongly in .. OR .. any reason you can think of!

Instead of doing the research for each of thousands of companies, we have designed a program that scans historical price data for over 6,000 stocks and figures out the best Buy/Sell patterns for every stock and then gives us these patterns for every stock .. AND .. the best stocks to Buy/Sell for every Week and Month of the year!

So .. without further ado .. these are my favorite stocks for the Month of April . . Buying in the beginning and selling at the end . . with some fine-tuning of our entries with some Technical Analysis:

ARLP – look at March/April-2012 to see the power of Seasonality for this one . . even though in a Strong Down-trend, April seems to pull her Up for a few weeks. This is a risky one due to the recent, steady Drop . . . but worth looking at if she starts to make her usual April run higher again.  Unfortunately the options are not trade-able, but still worth a possible 10% run Higher if you catch her as she starts to rise.

Here is how I use the Main Model Signals service and the Buy/Sell Signals and VP levels that he supplies.

This past week the S&P-500 rallied, hit, broke-down through different Sell Signals and VP Levels as price moved all around.

When the S&P-500 rallied to a VP Level and failed to stay above it, I bought PUT option debit Spreads . . . Buying one strike price and selling another strike price 2-SP-points lower . . thereby locking in a $200 per spread Max Profit should the Signal be correct (which his Signals usually are) .. OR .. just a small Gain if the Signal is wrong and the S&P-500 moves higher.

The key is that I am Buying 2.00 SP-points (212-210 and 209-207 in my actual trades below) for only about 1.50 SP-points . . on near-to-expiration options.  By buying these PUT Spreads (Down-profiters) on Rallies (Up moves), I get the spread for a nicely discounted price.  Since both options in my position are already In-The-Money at the time of purchase … I only have to manage moves against me (higher) as the S&P-500 price approaches my short strike-price .. thereby putting the 2-point spread in danger.  Since I do this with about one-week left until the expiration of my short position, this rarely happens that the S&P-500 would move up so much in just one week.  I do these PUT spreads in Down-trending Markets and the opposite (CALL spreads) in Up-trending Markets.

This is a snapshot of my actual trades over this past week:

  1. Buying the spread for $137 per contract then 5-days later selling it for $190 per contract = 38% in 5-days
  2. Buying the spread for $146 per contract then the next day selling it for $194 per contract = 32% in 1-day

Notice that I am not Greedy and I Close the position NEAR the max profit of $200 per contract . . happy with that and not trying to wait for the last dollar of Profit and potentially lose my nice gains.

Current Trend Stock Trading Analysis:

TIME TREND
Long-Term BULL
Medium-Term BULL
Short-Term BULL

Our Down then Up Trend Analysis from 2-weeks ago worked out perfectly!
Now it looks like clear sailing Upwards from here for the near-term.

My Stock Trading thoughts for the week:

I am currently Holding a +March5-212/-March4-210 Weekly Put Diagonal position looking for 25% Profits in 2-weeks.
I will be looking for similar IWM Call spreads this coming week . . I think IWM will move more Up, percentage wise, than the rest of the indices.

CMG — looking for a breakout to 710 and beyond . . I will be using under 650 as a Stop-Loss area . . . I will be using Call option strategies.

SBNY — I will be looking to enter Up positions on any pullbacks . . this is a longer-term favorite.

TSLA — Looking to Short on any Rallies.

GPRO — will enter Long to take advantage of a potential short-squeeze on a break above 41.60

FB — I will be Buying on Pullbacks .. even as it goes Higher . . . I will be using Call option strategies, of course.

I am leary of any Market Rallies because of the ongoing divergence between Risky and Safe bonds . . . their ratio usually goes inline with overall Stock Market prices .. higher prices higher risk .. but since the beginning of 2014 have diverged . . . risk has dropped dramatically (risk off), but stock market prices keep rising:

For this coming week I am looking at Buying the following for short-term Trades:

  • IWM Call options on any pull-backs
  • QQQ Put options on any rallies
  • FXE Put options on any rallies
  • USO Put options on rallies

I also like AMBA longer-term. Ambarella (AMBA) makes systems-on-a-chip (SoC) for GoPro’s massively popular cameras and other wearable tech. GoPro uses Ambarella’s technology exclusively and that’s been a very good thing for the company thus far. Ambarella has high gross margins and has its new SoC in high-end drones used for filmmaking. While making systems-on-a-chip for wearable cameras is Ambarella’s bread and butter, the company is also expanding its tech into high-definition security cameras for AT&T and other companies.  AMBA should do well as a leading Internet of Things company.

I also will be Trading my favorite April Monthly Seasonal stocks using the Tools that Members have access to.

My favorite stock this week with Weekly Options = AFSI
AFSI is in Daily- and Weekly- compressions . . ready for a continuation squeeze to the Up-side.
The options have too wide of a spread to nicely trade, so I will just look to trade the common-stock . . using under 49.75 as a Stop-loss area.

Last Week’s Highlights (Week-11)

  • An Up week for all of the Major Market ETF averages (DIA, QQQ, SPY, IWM) from QQQ +0.60% to DIA +1.41%
  • March Seasonal Longs were Mixed last week .. but are almost all Up so far this month.   It is time to start Banking Profits on March Seasonal positions.
  • U.S. stocks rose, with the S&P-500 touching a record, amid optimism in the strength of the world’s largest economy.   Emerging-market equities rose, led by the biggest gain in five weeks for Hong Kong-listed Chinese shares, and the U.S. dollar weakened.
  • Regarding my HOT Seasonal Picks for the Month (March):AEHR — Up Big for the Week AND for the Month
    BBBY — Down for the week but still Up for the Month
    CKEC — (Feb/Mar) >> Sideways for the week .. Still Holding .. Up over 20% since entering in late January!
    FLWS — Up Big for the Week AND for the Month
    TZOO — not looking too good . . my gut says to take this off the watch-list
  • I was wrong about last week . . I should not have had fear . . I have been a Strong Bull for the last many weeks and should not have left that side YET.
