Trade Exchange Founder Series – Terry Donahue, Bull & Bear Trading

Terry Donahue has been one of the top performing experts on the Trade Exchange platform since its inception. His approach is “opportunistic,” combining elements of technical, fundamental and quantitative analysis. He labels this fusion of perspectives “rational analysis.” Terry believes the market has unrealistic expectations of what can normally be made on a trade and it will become increasingly difficult to pick winners. It’s always great to hear Terry’s thoughts on the market – check this interview out!

Trade Exchange Founder Series - Rick Ackerman

VUZI: +61% in 2 weeks – Bull & Bear Trading

This is not a typo – another big gain with VUZI, an augmented reality leader. VUZI was just featured as a Top Trade in our last issue. Terry Donahue from Bull & Bear Trading closed a 122% gain on March 2, selling at $25.32. Terry issued another buy alert on March 5 at $16, well below his exit price 3 days earlier. Just two weeks later Terry booked a 61% gain, exiting at $25.04.

CLF: +39% in 24 weeks – Peak Analytics & Consulting

This is the first time Tim Walsh and Peak Analytics & Consulting has been featured as a Top Trade: “We saw CLF complete a nearly perfect “ABC” downside correction at the end of February and projected a move approaching $19 from an entry at $13.32.  Fundamental pressures – including price inflation on materials and expansion of global GDP post-pandemic – lent to this technical set-up working out very well.”

SKLZ: +34% in 1 week – Tom’s Stock Picks

Tom Waller delved deeper than a short seller’s cursory analysis. “A short selling report knocked SKLZ down below $25 in early March. I read the short report and they clearly didn’t do their research. One of their claims was that the NFL made no mention of them, but a simple google search proved them wrong – this was a buying opportunity. SKLZ had a pending earnings report, which meant they could not respond to the report. I planned to hold for longer than a week, but the rebound happened a lot quicker than I expected.”

LQDT: +32% in 3 weeks – RajCAP

Another Top Trade from Rajendra Parmar’s Elliott Wave-based swing trading system, which uses crowd behavior to analyze market patterns. Rajendra Parmar, RajCAP: “LQDT was in continuation pattern with an impulse cycle in a 240 minute time frame. It was perfectly corrected before the final move higher. We entered at $15.82 and exited in a little over 3 weeks stock at $20.95. The trade was a simple trend continuation pattern, which works well especially when market is in the same direction of trend. This type of trade typically offers a great reward potential and high probability of success.”

VUZI: +121% in 6 weeks – Bull & Bear Trading

Acting decisively following a successful application of emerging technology. Terry Donahue, Bull & Bear Trading said on January 22: “Vuzix is a leader in the R&D and manufacturing of augmented reality glasses. Today a first in U.S. surgical procedures took place as Vuzix AR glasses were used in a knee replacement surgery. The number of applications / use cases for these AR glasses are nearly unlimited.”

APA: +97% in 4 months – SmarTrend

This is the first time SmarTrend has been featured in Top Trades but they have delivered consistently strong results. To identify their ideas, SmarTrend models real-time pricing data, analyzes company financial fundamentals, considers corporate actions and maintains a library of 300 proprietary indicators. These algorithms generate uptrend (buy) and down trend (sell) signals. In this APA trade, patience was required but it was rewarded with a sizable payoff!

MARA: +64% in 6 weeks – RajCAP

Another Top Trade from Rajendra Parmar’s Elliott Wave-based swing trading system. Rajendra Parmar, RajCAP: “MARA was in a continuation pattern as an impulse cycle in a 60 minute time frame. The stock is directly related to the Bitcoin price as the company invested in Bitcoin. We entered when it gapped down with huge volume. The risk/reward ratio was more than 5x. The trade was a simple trend continuation pattern, which typically offers great reward potential and high probability of success.”

CPRI: +49% in 15 weeks – Whale of a Time Trends

Samantha LaDuc has been on the lookout for opportunities to profit from recovery-driven sector rotation trends since December. Here are her comments from December 2: “This name is one of the strongest recovery stocks, and has just broken a long term downtrend. We believe the stock could increase close to 50% from here over the long-term.”

MCFE: +34% in 8 weeks – Alpha Insights

Jeff Huge, Alpha Insights on January 11: “The shares of McAfee Corp (MCFE) appear to have resolved a classic patterned base formation of the “Head & Shoulders” variety. A sustained bullish inflection above $17.96 would project a measured move to around $22.50, for at least a 25% gain. Stop-loss $16.50 for a 3:1 positive risk skew.”

ALT: +23% in 1 weeks – Rick’s Picks Bold

Rick’s Picks are frequently featured as a top pick, using a disciplined technical approach. Rick Ackerman: “Altimmune is a stock that often encounters violent price moves. ALT’s chart provided us with the type of ‘mechanical entry’ that offers a great risk/reward tradeoff that we seek to deliver to our followers.”

Mike and Tim discuss a couple of example trades – the first being HEXO – a company in a strong sector with a strong earnings, revenue and EDITDA profile.
