This Week's Activity - May 24, 2013:
At the suggestion of my new LinkedIn colleague, Robert W. at http://stocksaints.com/ , I have written a detailed tutorial “Training Module 1 - Why Use StockEvaluator.xls And How to Use It” Here is the direct link: http://www.ultimatestockfinder.com/stockevaluator_training_module_01.html Training Module 1 is also available at the Ultimate Stock Finder website on the “Training” page.
This week, the Japanese Nikkei 225 index was on a wild ride, from starting Monday 15,276 to being up 4% by Thursday morning, then down 12% by Friday mid morning, then back up 3% at Friday close of 14,612. Here is the Yahoo Finance chart for this week. http://finance.yahoo.com/echarts?s=%5EN225+Interactive#symbol=%5En225;range=5d;compare=;indicator=volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=undefined;. The rest of the world markets did not seem to react much to this Japanese roller coaster ride. So I am hopeful that nothing bad will be triggered from this.
Remember the StockEvaluator “Short List” is now a web page instead of an Excel spreadsheet. This means it will open immediately on your smartphone. “Short List” is the special sort and filter screen from StockEvaluator.xls that I run every week so I can see only the few companies that are within 5% of their 52 week low AND have less than 5 Red cells. This week’s “Short List” has only 9 companies out of the 2,200 companies we follow in StockEvaluator.xls. One of these 9 is HMY, which I bought last week. Short List shows you companies that require further research to see if they fit your investment objectives. You can open StockEvaluator.xls “Short List” from the home page at UltimateStockFinder.com
