Cabot Weekly Review (Video)

In this week’s stock market video, Mike Cintolo discusses the growing number of bullish breadcrumbs the market is leaving behind, including last week’s rare show of strength that should bode well over time. That said, the near-term is still a coin flip, with much of the primary evidence having yet to turn bullish and there’s no doubt many headwinds (including interest rates) are out there. Net-net, Mike is encouraged and has put some money to work, but is still holding plenty of cash and waiting for upside confirmation before extending his line.

Advisory Services

Cabot Growth Investor

Bi-weekly Issue March 24: The market’s evidence continues to improve, with more bullish breadcrumbs being dropped–last week, it came via a rare, blastoff-type indicator that triggered for just the fifth time since 1970. To be fair, our primary indicators are still iffy, so you shouldn’t throw caution to the wind, but we’re doing a bit more nibbling tonight, and aim to continue buying if the market can prove itself on the upside going forward.

Bi-weekly Update March 17: The market put on a good show for the third day in a row – at the close, the Dow was up 418 points and the Nasdaq was up 178 points. After months of putting in the work, we think the overall setup here (weeks of bottom building, positive divergences among new lows, some stocks with bottoms or launching pads, horrid sentiment) is solid.

Cabot Top Ten Trader

Movers & Shakers March 25: After last week’s boomlet, the market has put together another constructive week in our book, mostly because of what it didn’t do—all major indexes either rose nicely (the Nasdaq is posting just its second week of back-to-back gains since around Halloween) or have effectively held the vast majority of last week’s gains.

Weekly Issue March 21: This week’s list is again heavy on commodity-type names, which were strong again today, but we’re starting to see a few more growth-y and turnaround names pop up, too. Our Top Pick is Pure Storage (PSTG), whose move to more subscription-based offerings is smoothing out results and attracting more big investors. Aim for pullbacks.

Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor

Weekly Update March 23: One common belief shared by Cathy Wood and the Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor. We comment on the impressive recovery of one of our recommendations as they reported strong fourth-quarter earnings, as well as updates on other recommended stocks.

Monthly Issue March 9: The world has clearly changed in the past two weeks. We see an exceptionally wide range of possible outcomes, which makes predictions about the future (already a low success rate endeavor) basically futile. We offer our timeless investing advice that can be readily applied in such situations.

Cabot Stock of the Week

Weekly Issue March 21: We can’t definitively say the market is out of the woods quite yet; most stocks are still below longer-term resistance, and the indexes are (mostly) in the same boat. That said, last week’s action was very rare on a couple of fronts, and that should bode well in the months ahead—and if that’s the case, we want to be on some stocks that are showing the peppiest action just as the market is getting going. Tim’s top pick is GlobalFoundries, and is one of the five largest semiconductor foundries in the world, and the best is yet to come.

Cabot Explorer

Bi-weekly Update March 24: As NATO leaders meet in Brussels and the Russian stock market opens, the Ukraine-Russia conflict continues to send energy and commodities up. The Euro Stoxx 50 is down 8.7% this year, versus -5.3% for the S&P 500.

Bi-weekly Issue March 17: Carl’s new recommendation is StoneCo (STNE). Based in Sao Paulo and founded in 2000, StoneCo is a digital payments company providing financial technology solutions for merchants to conduct electronic commerce across in-store, online, and mobile channels in Brazil.

Cabot Small-Cap Confidential

Update March 24: The market is looking a lot better than it did a couple of weeks ago even though the Russia-Ukraine conflict continues and the Fed has become more vocal about the need to hike interest rates in order to battle inflation.

Alert March 18: Following Q4 Reports JOAN Moves To SELL, XMTR Remains at BUY. Joann Stores (JOAN) reported Q4 results after the bell yesterday that beat on the bottom line and missed on the top line.

Monthly Issue March 3: Tyler’s new recommendation Procept BioRobotics (PRCT) is a surgical robotics company specializing in solutions in urology. It invented the AquaBeam Robotic System, an advanced, image-guided, surgical robotic system for use in minimally invasive urologic surgery.

Cabot Dividend Investor

Weekly Update March 23: What a difference a few days can make. A little over a week ago the market looked like it was about to roll over and die. But since the close on March 14 the S&P 500 has soared more than 8% and the Nasdaq has spiked more than 12%. Will the magnificence last?

Monthly Issue March 9: Value is back. After having been banished for nearly a decade to the mean streets of relative underperformance, a new era is emerging for value stocks. Stocks can be divided into two broad categories, growth and value. Growth stocks are those of companies that are anticipated to grow earnings at a rate significantly above the market or industry averages. These are stocks the tend to increase in value rather than pay a high income.

Cabot Early Opportunities

Monthly Issue March 16: The broad market has been going down since the beginning of the year. The S&P 500, Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 600 Small Cap Index are all below both their 50- and 200-day moving average lines. The same can be said for most sector ETFs in both the large- and small-cap asset classes, save areas like energy and utilities. In short, it is a bear market. And in this environment, before we buy any stock we have to ask ourselves – what’s the downside risk?

Alert March 11: Ratings Updates: WHD to SELL, SNOW & PTLO to BUY SECOND HALF. Cactus (WHD) moves to sell today. After a quick trip to north of 60, shares of WHD have been somewhat volatile and downside risks seems to be creeping in as investors weigh the relatively high valuation and potential for slower ramp up of onshore U.S. production even in the face of soaring oil prices.

Cabot Profit Booster

Weekly Issue March 22: Today, I’m adding an American company that develops all-flash data storage hardware and software products, Pure Storage (PSTG).

Alert March 18: Despite the market falling dramatically the past month, the Cabot Profit Booster portfolio had a great March expiration cycle as three trades will close for full profits, while one is at a loss.

Cabot Micro-Cap Insider

Weekly Update March 23: What a difference a week makes! The market was up sharply last week and from a technical perspective, that is very bullish. On Twitter, sentiment remains bearish which suggests this rally may have legs. In addition, we’ve had a number of positive developments in our Cabot Micro-cap Insider portfolio.

Monthly Issue March 9: Rich’s new recommendation Zedge Inc. (ZDGE). The stock has downside protection with significant cash on its balances sheet and no debt. Further, it will grow revenue at least 25% this year and insiders are strongly aligned (they own 19% of the company) to create value. To me, Zedge’s stock price looks completely disconnected from its fundamentals.

Cabot Income Advisor

Monthly Issue March 23: Sure, the rally in the overall market may not last, but this unusual environment is still creating great opportunities in certain pockets if you know where to look. One such opportunity exists in the new and rapidly growing marijuana industry.

Weekly Update March 16: The market is at a crossroad. The S&P 500 just hit a “death cross,” where the 50-day moving average crosses the 200-day moving average. It’s a warning sign. It could indicate a bottom or trouble ahead. It’s hard to tell which because much depends on news of the war, which is impossible to predict.

Cabot Turnaround Letter

Weekly Update March 25: This week’s Friday Update includes our price target increase for one of our energy companies, as well as updates on several recommended companies. We’re not macro-driven, but we are macro-aware, and are thinking about the reserve status of the U.S. dollar. Also, we bid farewell to Ned Johnson, legendary former CEO of Fidelity.

Alert March 16: We are moving shares of Baker Hughes (BKR) to a Sell. The shares have surged above our previously raised 31 price target (originally 23). Using optimistic yet realistic assumptions, we are hard-pressed to justify a BKR share price meaningfully above the current price.

Monthly Issue February 23: We discuss five boring companies which have traits that could help their stocks shine in a low-return market over the coming decade. We highlight six appealing stocks we found by trolling through the 13F/D filings of like-minded institutional investors. Our featured recommendation this month is an opportunistic purchase of an average company whose shares have fallen sharply out-of-favor for what look like short-term reasons.

Cabot Money Club

Alert March 18: Clif Droke, Chief Analyst for Cabot’s SX Gold & Metals Advisor, advised me that he had traded out of our latest recommendation, the iPath Series B Bloomberg Tin Subindex Total Return ETN (JJT).

Monthly Magazine March 2: Have you dreamed of turning your jewelry-making hobby into profits? Do your friends and family tell you that you are so good at baking that you should have your own Food Network show? Are your photographs professional quality? Does everyone you know ask you to plan their birthday, wedding, anniversary parties? Or have you just fantasized—for years—about chucking your boring job and starting your own business?

Cabot ETF Strategist

Weekly Update March 22: With this update, I’m giving you trades for rebalancing the Aggressive portfolio (100% equity) and the Moderate portfolio (60% equity/40% fixed income). Any time the broad market declines 10% or more, into correction territory, it’s wise to evaluate your holdings and be sure nothing has strayed too far out of line from your predetermined allocation.

Monthly Issue March 8: The situation with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has added a fresh bout of volatility to the markets. But U.S. markets, as tracked by the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY), have not plunged far. The SPY fell to an intraday low of 410.64 on February 24 before rallying to finish the session with a gain. The truth is: Stocks were already toying with a correction prior to the Ukrainian situation heating up.

Ask the Experts

Cabot Options Trader

Question:I have recently made a lot of money with your picks. you picked very well the last few months.I am just curious on today’s list which stocks went through your criteria to be considered. What made you pick PSTG.Just curious which system do you use to scan the big call options buys from the institutions?

Jacob: Glad the trades have been working.In terms of PSTG, I like the stock a lot as it’s one of the few growth types of stocks that is near a new high amidst the market mayhem. Also, option activity has been strong in PSTG the last couple of days. The combination of strong stock action, and bullish option activity is my favorite set-up. I use LiveVol Pro to set up my scans for option activity. It took me quite a while to really dial in my scans, but now I am very confident my system will find the best unusual option activity. Then it’s my job to sit in front of the computer all day taking note which of those trades are most interesting to me, so that I can bring them to your attention.
