Cabot Weekly Review (Video)

In this week’s stock market video, Mike Cintolo talks about his continued defensive stance amidst the market’s downtrend, with the high-profile retail debacle (TGT, WMT) hurting the cause. That said, growth stocks have stopped leading on the downside for the time being, and the plunge in defensive stocks while that’s happening is something to note. Mike runs though a big list of names to watch, and even mentions one sector he believes will lead the next growth advance, whenever that begins.

Advisory Services

Cabot Growth Investor

Bi-weekly Issue May 19: Right now, then, we continue to hold a ton of cash, but we’re not burying our head in the sand or gabbing with everyone about all the bad news—instead, we’re focused on growth stocks finding support and reacting well to earnings (yes, there are a few), some of which we could nibble at if the market finds some real buying. Tonight, we have no changes, with the Model Portfolio holding north of 80% in cash.

Bi-weekly Update May 26: The market is having one of its better days in a few weeks—as of 2 pm ET, the Dow is up 578 points and the Nasdaq is up 329 points

Cabot Top Ten Trader

Movers & Shakers May 27: As we cruise into a holiday weekend, it’s (finally) been a solid week for the market—the major indexes are up in the 3% to 5% range, though most growth funds/indexes, while up, are lagging a bit behind that.

Weekly Issue May 23: Not surprisingly, this week’s list doesn’t have many stocks near new high ground, but we are seeing many that reacted well to earnings and have shown some positive volume clues. Our Top Pick is one of them, a new name in the resilient shipping group.

Cabot Options Trader Basic & Pro Trade Alert May 24: Adjust Existing Position/No New Capital: Sell your MRVL September 75 Calls and Buy the September 52.5 Calls

Cabot Options Trader Stocks on Watch May 19: The slight uptick in bullish hope from Friday and Tuesday was quickly washed away yesterday as growing recession fears walloped the market. Essentially, Wal-Mart (WMT) and Target (TGT) are disappointing Wall Street, and in reaction those stocks fell approximately 25%, as traders are in sell first and ask questions later mode.

Cabot Options Trader Basic Weekly Update May 16: Following another rough week, the market is now off to its worst start to a year since 1932. The numbers aren’t pretty as last week the Dow lost another 2.1%, the S&P 500 fell 2.4% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq declined 2.8%. Year-to-date the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq are lower by 11.4%, 15.6% and 24.5%, respectively.

Cabot Options Trader Pro Weekly Update May 16: With earnings season largely in the rearview mirror rising interest rates, inflationary pressures, talk of a recession, and of course ongoing geopolitical uncertainties will be front and center once again this week.

Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor

Weekly Update May 25: Journalists May Be Wrong in Implying that Interest Rates Won’t Increase Much More. The media, including highly reputable sources like Bloomberg, Barron’s and The Wall Street Journal, have written that “real” interest rates are now positive.

Monthly Issue May 4: It seems that most of the pandemic-driven adrenaline rush in speculative stocks has burned off, with literally hundreds of names down 60% or more from their peak prices. And, more than a few highly notable stocks, including Netflix (NFLX) and DocuSign (DOCU), have given up all of their pandemic gains and then some.

Cabot Stock of the Week

Weekly Issue May 23: The market remains quite weak, and thus ripe for a major rally at any time. But until we see real strength, continued caution is advised.

Cabot Explorer

Bi-weekly Issue May 26: Inflation may be easing somewhat but interest rates will continue to move upward, presenting a headwind for markets. Investors are acting on bargains but in restrained ways until an uptrend develops.

Bi-weekly Update May 19: The markets continue to be challenging to say the least, with the S&P 500 off 18% so far this year, but like everyone I see some amazing companies posting strong numbers being pulled down over a blend of macro issues.

Cabot Small-Cap Confidential

Weekly Update May 26: After a rough week last week small caps have bounced back over the last two sessions and have the potential to close at a three-week high today. I’d like to see the S&P 600 Index close back above 1230 (at 1224 now) before turning more bullish.

Alert May 11: Xometry (XMTR) delivered quarterly results ahead of expectations this morning. Revenue of $83.7 million (+91%) beat by $2 million while adjusted EPS of -$0.27 beat by $0.09. Active buyers up 44% to 30,683.

Monthly Issue May 5: The market remains very challenging for high-growth stocks. While I have a list of innovative companies I’m excited to recommend (at some point), for now we’ll continue to diversify our portfolio with more value-oriented names.

Cabot Dividend Investor

Weekly Update May 18: The market has rallied strongly off last week’s lows. Buy I’m not buying into it. Stocks are already floundering badly again today. The S&P 500 came to within close to 1% of a bear market last week, down 20% from the high on a closing basis before several up days and a better than 4% rally off the low. The index has posted six consecutive weeks of decline, the longest such streak in more than a decade.

Monthly Issue May 11: It might not be too early to bargain hunt very selectively. Companies that are likely to continue to grow earnings and the dividend are likely to recover. There is one such opportunity in the cannabis sector.

Cabot Early Opportunities

Alert May 18: We’ve held on to a small stake in Endava (DAVA) hoping the market would turn around before our gain dwindled too much. With the stock sneaking below last week’s low today we’re going to step aside. Like many companies I think Endava is doing a good job and will pull out of this just fine. But I’m not willing to let a gain slip entirely away. We can return to it later when the environment for the stock improves. SELL REMAINING HALF

Monthly Issue May 18: Tyler’s top pick Axonics (AXNX), is developing disruptive solutions for patients that suffer from overactive bladder (OAB), Urinary Retention (UR) and Fecal Incontinence (FI). The most common symptom of these ailments is the frequent and urgent need to go to the bathroom. They are often the result of abnormal communication between the brain and the bladder and bowel.

Cabot Profit Booster

Weekly Issue May 24: Despite some optimism early last week, the sellers obliterated that hope Wednesday through Friday, as the indexes fell sharply, pushing the S&P 500 into an official bear market (down 20% from its highs).

Alert May 20: The market has been a mess for the past several months, as countless stocks have completely fallen apart. It’s been UGLY. That being said, the Cabot Profit Booster held up fairly well this month, as I structured our trades defensively, and the large call premiums we collected offset the market’s decline.

Cabot Micro-Cap Insider

Alert May 27: I originally recommended buying BBX Capital (BBXIA) in October 2020 at a price of 3.17, shortly after its spin-off from Bluegreen Vacation Holdings (BVH).

Weekly Update May 25: The S&P 500 has almost officially entered a bear market. The somewhat arbitrary definition of a bear market is a 20% decline. The S&P 500 peaked on January 3, 2022 at 4,797. Therefore, if the Index closes at or below 3,837, we will officially be in a bear market.

Monthly Issue May 11: Today, I’m recommending a company that will benefit from the post-pandemic travel boom.

Cabot Income Advisor

Monthly Issue May 25: It’s too soon to buy new stocks aggressively. But there is a safer place in the meantime to generate a high yield without much downside in the near term.

Weekly Update May 18: The market has improved from the heavy selling of last week. But I’m not buying this rally just yet. At the low point of the selling last week, the S&P 500 was down about 19% from the high. That was dangerously close to a bear market, down 20% from the high on a closing basis. A bear market is an important psychological level that would likely prompt further selling if crossed. And we came right up to the cusp.

Cabot Turnaround Letter

Weekly Update May 27: This week’s Friday Update includes a summary of the recent Cabot Turnaround Letter, and comments on earnings at Macy’s (M). We also summarize the podcast and include The Catalyst Report.

Monthly Issue May 25: While the stock market has surged since its pandemic low, shares of many companies have sold off sharply and now trade below their March 23, 2020 level.

Cabot Money Club

Stock of the Month May 12: As Mike Cintolo, Chief Analyst of Cabot Growth Investor and Cabot Top Ten Trader always says, “you shouldn’t fight the tape.” The markets are battling it out these days, trying to find a bottom. The constant news cycle of Russia-Ukraine, rising rates (up 0.5% last week) and increasing inflation are causing a severe case of market indigestion and volatility.

Monthly Magazine April 29: Since the market bottom on March 6, 2009—when the Dow Jones Industrial Average sunk to 6,469.95—investors have lined their pockets with lots of coin. Sure, COVID sent the markets reeling—down to 19,173.98 on the Dow in March 2020—but since then, boy, have we recovered! Despite recent volatility—due to rising interest rates and inflation, as well as the war in Ukraine—the Dow is getting close to breaking records again, closing at 35,116.35, as I write this.

Cabot ETF Strategist

Weekly Update May 24: With Friday’s action in the broad market undercutting the prior May 12 low, we have a clear signal that the uncertainty is continuing. That’s despite the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq rallying to end the session above their earlier lows.

Monthly Issue May 10: One key tenet of asset allocation is risk management. You’ll find that principle to be much more salient when it comes to investing an entire portfolio, as opposed to simply trading individual stocks.

Ask the Experts

Cabot Growth Investor

Question: Mike, it seems as if oil /commodity stocks are holding up better in this bear market. Are any of these stocks of any interest to you - ARCH, PXD, SJT?

Mike: Thanks for asking. So I’m not really close to SJT – I’ve heard of it but not sure exactly how it works.
PXD - Definitely a leader in the oil space, but as with many of these things better to buy on dips. I would say they have to pay more taxes next year so not sure how much that will affect the dividends but it has a great story.
ARCH – In general I like it but the coal names really have been up/down of late, with some good days but bad days, too. Plus, ARCH just went ex-div on Friday which can add to near-term volatility. Looks OK here but I would have a stop near 140-143 if you enter.Just my take.
