Earnings Season Commences

First quarter earnings will begin to be reported after today’s close. In the final analysis, all things considered, it is earnings that determine prices.

From a technical perspective, the timing indicators have already peaked, and as the market has recently only been treading water, they begin to turn down, but they all still register High Risk. This could be as a ‘pause that refreshes’, or a precursor to a correction. In either case, I only advocate being a buyer during those periods of ‘low-risk market entry opportunity’, after a relatively significant decline has taken my timing indicators into their respective measures of low market risk. They are not there.

So, what stocks actually show very good signs of ‘Investment-Grade Health,’ possessing good EPS estimate lines, and good dividend payout history, as well as good price charts? Let me leave you with 18 to keep in mind. As opportunity should arise, I’ll come right out and give a buy on some, but do your own homework on these: NKE, PSA, HRL, JKHY, SBUX, TJX, HD, LOW, EFX, COST, AOS, EL, NOC, FDS, CVS, SYK, UNH and NDAQ.

We open in 1/2 hour, and it looks to be a positive open, after very little either positive or negative price moves around the globe overnight, there being mixed results. Keep your eye on precious metals though… they have been moving, and look to be on a tear! I started a fresh blog, and loaded up on them only on Friday, the 8th. They closed the day up for me, and look to move considerably higher at the open today. You can see that here: https://goldstocktraderblog.wordpress.com/

Here’s to your successful investing!
