Bargain Stock Monitor Still in Rally Mode

Submitted by The Investment Shadow | RSS Feed | Add Comment | Bookmark Me!

Fewer Bargains ~ Quick, Profitable Trading

The Bargain Stock Monitor is one of three market statistics used as performance expectation analyzers for Market Cycle Investment Management Portfolios. It is derived from the Month End Value Stock Watchlist screening program and identifies Investment Grade Value Stocks trading at least 15% below their 52-week high. 

Candidates must also meet the price selection criteria outlined in The Brainwashing Of The American Investor: The Book That Wall Street Does Not Want YOU To Read.

The "15% down" break-point allows you to keep your eye on "Bull Pen" items. (You really need to be familiar with the selection rules to get the most from the Bargain Stock Monitor and from the Watch List  program.)

The fewer IGVSI equities at bargain prices, the stronger the market and the more Smart Cash that should be accumulating in the equity bucket of your portfolio. As the list of bargain Investment Grade Value Stocks grows (indicating market weakness), portfolio Smart Cash should be finding its way back into undervalued securities. 

If you are following "the MCIM rules" properly, you should be using market volatility to capture all reasonable profits, particularly on high-priced issues

Opportunities to put "Smart Cash" back to work are few ---  but buying opportunities do exist in REITs and MLPs... as a "temporary holding area awaiting the correction".

If you did not buy stocks during March:  

        a) You were being fearful, and not following MCIM buying guidelines; 

        b) You had no "smart cash" because you refused to sell during the rally; 

        c) You foolishly avoided short-term capital gains, and are ding so again now;  

        d) You thought the correction was for real, and you were waiting for lower prices.

ACTION ALERT: If the correction resumes, add to your portfolio slowly, and continue to increase yields and reduce cost basis in the "income bucket".  

If the rally continues, take any profit at all on your weaker and older equity holdings.
