This Week's Activity – February 22, 2014:
This week, the world market indices were mixed, some up , some down, but none by much.
I still think the markets are overpriced but continue to look for good values on individual stocks of good solid companies.
Japan Display Inc. a major supplier of Apple’s smartphone screens is planning an IPO: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/huge-apple-supplier-plans-ipo-151500142.html
At the request of Brian who is following Australian Stocks, I have added all 200 of the stocks on the Australian Stock Exchange ASX 200 index. They are currently listed under “Industry” code “ASX-200 Index”, but I will change them to their proper Industry codes over the next couple of weeks so these stocks can be easily compared within their respective industries. Be sure to let me know if you are following any stocks or funds that are not on the “Evaluator” spreadsheets. I will be happy to add them. The more the merrier!

Summary Table of Worldwide Market Index Closing values for this week:
This week I bought back (Bought to Close) the PUT I had sold on MYGN on January 6. When I sold this PUT MYGN was at $21.03/share, and over the next 5 weeks it went up to $35, which was a 5 year high. See 5 year chart below. I decided to close out this PUT to lock in my profits and not wait for the risk of MYGN going back down. See the details below in (CALL or PUT) Sells for This Week.
See the Yahoo 5 year chart for MYGN:

Mutual Funds that are within 3% of their 52 week low AND have less than 3 Red cells.
This week’s list has 34 funds. All are Bond funds, which are all still 3 to 8% above their lows from 2006 to 2008 before The FED dropped interest rates to bring the
out of the recession. When interest
rates go down, bond prices go up, and when interest rates go up, bond prices go
down. These bond funds only pay a 3 to
4% annual dividend and I think the bond prices will go down another 3 to 4%
when The FED finally lets interest rates go back to historic levels which mean
10 Year Bond interest rate of at least 3.5% compared to today’s 10 year rate of
2.67%. I will continue to wait before
buying any bond funds because I do not want to lose a whole year’s worth of
interest if I buy back in too soon. U.S.
The top two funds on this week’s short list are BCOSX and MWTRX.
Here are their 10year charts to show why I am still waiting to buy.
