This Week's Activity – March 29, 2014:
Two weeks ago, on March 13, China National Offshore Oil Company (CEO) dropped to $147.24 due to a possible bribery scandal in their dealings with the Chinese government.
Here is the article: http://seekingalpha.com/article/2093833-corruption-scandal-creates-a-buying-opportunity-for-cnooc
CEO has been showing up on several of my stock screeners for the past few weeks. I have been trying to decide if I should take a chance on this Chinese oil company. Here is a link to the StockEvaluator.xls spreadsheet with a ‘Row–by-Row’ Comparison of CEO and several other large oil companies from around the world sorted by Red cell count. CEO looks the best and also pays a 3.8% dividend. http://www.ultimatestockfinder.com/stockevaluator_ceo_comparison.xls
Yahoo Finance Key Statistics for CEO:
I will place a Limit order for CEO on Monday 3/31/2014 at $149/share.
This week, the world market indices were mixed, some up a little, some down a little, but mostly flat. Read more here: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/wall-st-week-ahead-u-212331905.html
Summary Table of Worldwide Market Index Closing values for this week:
I still think the markets are overpriced but I continue to look for good values on individual stocks of good solid companies.
This week I found a website (http://www.insiderinsights.com/free/ ) that provides a free list of the weekly top 20 Insider Buys and Sells by dollar volume for stocks traded on US markets.
I have added their link to the Ultimate Stock Finder.com “Links” page at Table of Contents Section “1. Current Stock Market Values & Metrics” http://www.ultimatestockfinder.com/websearchlinksindex.html#today
At the right hand side of the “InsiderInsights Free Stuff” page, select either “Buys” or “Sells” and then click “Get top 20”. The new window shows an excellent table containing:
Filer Name and Title; Company Name and Ticker Symbol; Transaction Type and $ Value.
I will be checking these Top 20 Buy and Sell reports weekly to keep track of what the insiders are doing, and see what stocks I should be researching.
StockEvaluator ‘Short List’

When StockEvaluator.xls was not working for the past few weeks, I had to use the FinViz stock screener. It is excellent, so I am continuing to use it along with my ‘Short List’ as a parallel check to find good fundamental stocks that are near their 52 Week Lows. Here is the FinViz stock screener link set to the 9 of 12 ‘Short List’ limits that are available at FinViz.
This is in the FinViz ‘Custom’ view: http://finviz.com/screener.ashx?v=151&f=fa_debteq_u0.8,fa_div_o1,fa_ltdebteq_u0.8,fa_netmargin_pos,fa_payoutratio_u70,fa_pb_u2,fa_pe_u20,fa_ps_u2,fa_salesqoq_pos,ta_highlow52w_a0to10h&ft=4
Due to continued problems with our Mutual Fund web look-up functions, we still cannot update the data in Mutual Fund Evaluator.xls. We are working to fix this problem and hope to have a fix in place soon. Stock Evaluator.xls is now working properly and is available for download from our website.
