6/27 – New VISIONS Scan

Posted by mounddweller on June 28, 2010

I ran a new VISIONS scan last night and the volume of stocks popping up on the Scout report continues to increase.  This scan returned 134 stocks that met the Level 3 criteria and 19 that met the Level 4 criteria.  It was only a few weeks ago that I was getting ZERO stocks returned by Scout at Level 4.

There are 4 stocks in the Level 4 list that are rated ‘TA’ (take action) and have a Gold$ score = 80.  They are…

(1) Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri AS (NYSE: TKC)

(2) First Solar (Nasdaq: FSLR)

(3) Chemical & Mining of Chile (NYSE: SQM)

(4) Banco Santander, S.A. (NYSE: STD).

I find it interesting that 3 of the 4 are international stocks listed as ADRs on the NYSE.  Perhaps that’s an indicator that we should be diversifying internationally?  Other ‘TA’  rated stocks further down the list (Gold$ < 80) include: GILD, EJ, MAN, MASI, CEPH, PMCS, KCG, NSR, LOGI, DELL, and YHOO.

Up and comers rated ‘GR’ (get ready) and high on the list include: GAME, NTRS, and PBCT.  Of these, GAME (Shanda Interactive) is the most interesting.  It already has a Gold$ score of 82.  It just needs to get back up in the VISION V and it might make an attractive trade.

Let me know if you find any of these appealing and why.  At first glance none of them jumped out at me as a “must trade” opportunity.

I ran a VISIONS scan this weekend.  For the first time in quite a while it returned more than just one or two possible trades.  In fact VISIONS identified 14 possible trades, 5 of which have a Gold$ score of greater than 80. 

(1) First Solar (FSLR) – Gold$ = 92

(2) Banco Santander (STD) – Gold$ = 90

(3) Logitech International (LOGI) – Gold$ = 86

(4) ExxonMobil (XOM) – Gold$ = 84

(5) Forest Labs (FRX) – Gold$ = 82

What I found particularly interesting in the results of my scan are the increasing number of ‘blue chip’  stocks that are beginning to appear.  The most notable of these is of course ExxonMobil which showed up in the top 5.  Others, in no particular order, appearing further down the list beyond the top 14 I referenced above include JNJ, MSFT, KO, VISA, and GOOG. 

I believe we are still in a bear market thus I want to limit my trades to those types of large-cap companies.  I say keep an eye on them and pounce when the timing is right.
