What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

Earning Season News.Two Powerful Earning Releases On The Same Day

Option traders wait for days like this. Earning reports can cause stocks to spike. Let's look at Boeing and General Dynamics Corp.. First Boeing. Here is it's news.
The company can't build planes fast enough. The stock surged on the opening only to have opportunistic traders take some of the wind out of their sails. There was a lot of details to absorb in a short period of time causing the stock to quiver. Sometimes Boeing can jump 15 dollars on good earning reports. Now look at this one day chart.
The lesson here is to take profits on the opening. Period. Things re not totally smooth sailing with Boeing. Taking profits and buying back in on the morning dip and selling out into the ensuing rally would really require luck. Next General Dynamics Corp.. Guess what? We are living in world of serious wars. Business has to be good for this company.
The details of how they are doing is not that important. Wars are good for General Dynamics and with the markets taking a grubbing as of late, good earning reports can cause a stock to shine. P.S. Stay away this quarter from playing the earning reports on stocks in the automotive industry. There is too much negativity in the air right now.
