Cabot Weekly Review (Video)

In this week’s stock market video, Mike Cintolo talks about the market’s latest slide and the damage it’s done to many areas of the market. Because of that, he’s certainly not flooring the accelerator, but he also doesn’t this all of the good vibes from the past month or two (positive divergences, intermediate-term green light, etc.) have been wiped away. He’s still taking it slow, but Mike goes over many names that are hanging in there, including some intriguing commodity stocks that have tightened up.

Advisory Services

Cabot Growth Investor

Bi-weekly Issue April 7: The market’s evidence improved under the surface for much of February and early March, with the strong rally last month only adding to the good vibes. A pullback wasn’t unexpected, but so far, the way things have retreated hasn’t been encouraging, with a lot of potential leaders taking it on the chin and our nascent Cabot Tides buy signal back on the fence.

Alert April 5: The market (and especially growth stocks) took a good-sized hit today—our Cabot Tides remain positive, but as we wrote in last week’s update, we’re still seeing lots of selling on strength, leading to many air pockets among individual stocks.

Bi-weekly Update March 31: Stocks had their second straight bad day today to close out the quarter. At day’s end, the Dow had sunk 550 points, the Nasdaq dropped 222 points and many growth stocks got hit hard.

Cabot Top Ten Trader

Movers & Shakers April 8: As we’ve been writing, there were many positive vibes building in the market through February and early March, and then the two-and-a-half week rally from there was very encouraging, triggering a blastoff-type measure and turning the intermediate-term trend up.

Weekly Issue April 4: This week’s list is again a mixed bag, with some growth but a lot of commodities and cyclicals, too. Our Top Pick is a big player in the steel space that just recently emerged from a big rest period.

Cabot Options Trader and Cabot Options Trader Pro

Note that the current week’s Weekly Update, earnings updates, position updates and stocks on watch are posted on the website in the Market Update section, which is deleted each week.

Cabot Options Trader Basic Position Update April 6: After a nice start to the week, the market is yet again under pressure as the S&P 500 fell 1.25% yesterday, and is down another 1.35% in early trade today. The “reason” for the selling is being attributed to the sharp moves in the bond market, and growing fear of a recession at some point next year. Though really, the reason doesn’t truly matter.

Cabot Options Trader Basic Weekly Review April 4: Despite some violent day-to-day swings last week, the three leading indexes were mostly unchanged as the Dow lost 0.1%, the S&P 500 gained 0.1% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq climbed higher by 0.7%.

Cabot Options Trader Pro Weekly Review April 4: Long positions: CF, DT, F, MRVL, OXY, UBER, XLF

Cabot Options Trader Basic & Pro Alert April 4: Covered Call: Buy ON Holding (ONON) Stock and Sell the May 25 Strike Call (exp. 5/20) for a net of $23.70 or less.

Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor

Monthly Issue April 6: The first quarter was kind to our stocks, as they rose, on average, +8.8%, while the broad market fell. We comment on the sources of the gains and any recent news on our recommended stocks.

Weekly Update March 30: Almost everywhere in the mainstream media and across most Wall Street research firms, there is a common implication that a recession will bring a bear market for stocks.

Cabot Stock of the Week

Weekly Issue April 4: The market remains healthy and thus I continue to recommend that you remain fully invested in a diversified portfolio. My last two recommendations were chip companies that consumers can’t really “see,” but this week’s recommendation is a consumer-facing company, so you can easily “kick the tires.”

Cabot Explorer

Bi-weekly Update April 7: The rise in interest rates and the Russia-Ukraine situation are roiling markets and the Fed will soon begin reducing its $9 trillion holdings of Treasury bonds, putting a dent in liquidity that was propping up markets. This is impacting stocks, especially the tech-heavy Nasdaq market.

Bi-weekly Issue March 31: Explorer stocks had another good week as markets adapt to the Russia-Ukraine conflict’s impact on commodity markets. Oil prices pulled back a bit following plans to release reserves. This week we look back in history at a global giant in agriculture and food that is backing our new-age recommendation hailing from Montana.

Cabot Small-Cap Confidential

Monthly Issue April 7: Tyler’s new recommendation Silvergate Capital (SI) is a commercial bank located in La Jolla, CA providing financial infrastructure and services to the digital currency industry. It has a market cap of $3.6 billion.

Update March 31: There’s been a lot of talk lately about a potential yield curve inversion (happened briefly on Tuesday), so I did some work earlier in the week to see what the data says about small- and large-cap stock performance around inversions.

Cabot Dividend Investor

Weekly Update April 6: The big market rebound has petered. And ugliness might be resuming. The waning of war panic and relief about the Fed’s March 0.25% rate hike have given way to new concerns. There may be a new round of economic fallout from the war as Europe proposes additional sanctions on Russia.

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

Alert March 31: Ratings Updates: Sell CNXC and IBM. We’ve enjoyed a nice snap-back rally in the broad market in recent weeks. This has helped us recover some of the “lost” gains in older positions while pumping paper gains in newer ones.

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?

Cabot Profit Booster

Weekly Issue April 5: Today, I’m adding Cleveland, Ohio-based company Cleveland Cliffs (CLF), the largest flat-rolled steel producer in North America.

Cabot Micro-Cap Insider

Weekly Update April 6: This week, everyone is talking about the yield curve inversion. What’s a yield curve inversion? Its when the yields on long-term government bonds are lower than the yields on short-term government bonds.

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

Weekly Update April 6: The sharp recovery from the recent bottom has leveled off, at least for now. From here, the prognosis looks murky at best. New concerns have arisen. There is worry that Europe will impose additional sanctions on Russia, which may include natural gas. That would certainly increase the negative economic fallout from the war. Also, there is increasing concern about slowing economic growth later this year and next.

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.

Cabot Turnaround Letter

Weekly Update April 1: The Update includes comments on earnings from recommended companies, other updates and the Catalyst Report, a powerful tool that anyone can use for finding attractive turnaround stocks. In the April monthly edition we highlight three companies with new CEOs, and summarize our deep-dive into the cannabis industry including six companies whose shares look appealing for long-term investors. We also discuss a spin-off which is our feature recommendation.

Monthly Issue March 30: All companies are collections of assets. When companies are struggling, a new CEO can redirect how those assets are utilized – a valuable catalyst for a turnaround. We highlight three recent CEO changes and how they might help drive up the value of their companies.

Cabot Money Club

Monthly Magazine April 1: No matter where you are in your investing journey, this comprehensive list has a saving, spending, or investing app that can help you reach your goals.

Stock of the Month 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). But he also noted that he would be looking to trade back into the investment in the near future. This is what Clif had to say:

Cabot ETF Strategist

Weekly Update April 5: Today, I want to address some questions about the Cabot ETF Strategist. I’ve had a few readers ask about trades. The ETF Strategist features two categories of portfolios.

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 Top Ten Trader

Question:In the (April 4) Top Ten issue, TSLA was recommended to buy in the range between 1,050 to 1,100 and TSLA on April 4 closed at 1,145.45. That means it was expected to pull back between $45 and $95 before it falls into the buy range. I was wondering how to figure the out approximate range of pullback from closing of 1,145.45 on April 4 to a range of 1,050 to 1,100 in two weeks, as required by Cabot Top Ten rules. It would be great if I could get (a better) idea of figuring out your pullback range.

Mike: Thanks for writing. Well, there’s no magic to it – we just take into account the environment (where we’re still seeing lost of selling on strength) and the chart (TSLA was extended and is quite volatile) and try to pick a reasonable range the stock could shake out to sometime in the days ahead. Obviously, we could miss the stock, but we’re trying to get it at a lower-risk entry.
