Trade Exchange Founder Series - Alpha Chartist Tim Fortier

Tim Fortier of Alpha Chartist talks about his experience and evolving approach to identifying ideas. He began his career finding “cup and handle” formations on printed stock charts received in the mail. The tools have evolved and Tim has added more to his arsenal, but this discipline remains. Tim focuses on fundamentals like risk management, the power of compounding and removing emotion from trading. 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. They also discuss Sorrento Therapeutics, which emerged from two of Tim’s screens: a strong-performing sectors and high options volume.

MILE: +55% in 11 weeks – Bull & Bear Trading / Whale of a Time Trends

Two of our experts – Terry Donahue and Samatha LaDuc both identified this opportunity within a week of each other. Terry: “Chamath Palihapitiya- and Mark Cuban-backed SPAC to bring MetroMile auto insurance public.” Check out Terry’s interview here and webinar here.

Samantha LaDuc added: “SPAC play. Major innovation of an industry with a large total addressable market,” noting that Metromile’s pay-per-mile car insurance and tailored pricing offers a differentiated approach to customers.

SRNE: +50% in 8 weeks – Alpha Chartist

Tim Fortier began his career in the 80s by analyzing hard copies of stock charts delivered through the mail. Check out Tim’s interview with our founder here. His commitment to  analytical principles helped him to identify an opportunity with the biotech Sorrento Therapeutics. “SRNE was displaying two of my favorite market edges– heavy call buying and increasing volume. Call buyers have steadily acquired out of the money calls signaling upside expectations.”

FSR: +37% in 4 days – RAjCAP Swing Cycles

RajCAP is a Elliott Wave Theory adherent. “FSR consolidated after a strong rally and we anticipated that an upward breakout would emerge. The trade was taken before it broke out of the range with high volume, giving it a good risk/reward ratio. In terms of Elliott wave theory, the up move before consolidation was an impulse cycle, which almost always yields a high probability set up. The 37% return in 4 weeks’ time was among the best in comparison to other stocks in the sector during that time.” 

EXPE: +33% in 10 weeks – LaDuc Trading Whale of a Time Trends

Samantha LaDuc also identified this opportunity for a re-opening trade on what she calls the “vaccine rainbow,” combined with options activity. “This company has been consolidating for a month and has strong tailwinds for its business into 2021. Seeing unusual call activity coming in as well.”

CTB: +29% in 2 weeks – The Weather Growth & Income Fund

Tom Chisholm’s ideas usually leverage his meteorological background to identify seasonal or other weather-driven opportunities. He said on February 12: “Cooper Tire is a prime buy during severe winter weather currently unfolding across the country. A series of severe winter storms will provide wind at the backs of demand for this familiar brand to those who are newly arrived in colder and snowier locations as a consequence of Covid. The stock also has a forward PE of 12 which is undervalued, considering forward-looking free cash flow.”

FSR: +25% in 1 day – My Happy Place

WKHS: +19% in 1 day – Turbo Trading Swing Trade Membership

Both Andy Wang of My Happy Place and Bob Knight of Turbo Trade Swing Trade Membership identified overnight profit opportunities in the electric vehicle sector between February 24 and 25. Bob Knight on WKHS: “The stock was tremendously oversold on February 24. Our original goal was a 50% retracement but we settled for 20% in one day as the general markets sold off. Still a nice win for those who took the trade in a soft market.” Check out Andy’s webinar here and Bob’s latest interview here and his webinar here.

CLVR (+ warrants): +277% (warrants – 2 wks) / 106% (5 wks) – Cara Biotech, Metals & Top Picks

Bill Cara delivered this idea two ways – through a higher risk/reward warrant trade and also with the underlying stock. “This is a vertically integrated, global cannabis company with a solid board and management team, with former US Senator Tom Daschle as a special advisor. They offer a sustainable, high-efficiency large-scale cultivation and extraction of cannabinoids and produce pharmaceutical and consumer brands in the wellness, lifestyle and beauty segments.”

TIGR: +262% in 7 weeks – Barry Steinman Opportunities in Emerging Growth Stocks

A big winner in online brokerage in China. Barry Steinman: “China’s economy is booming post-pandemic and their middle class only now being created. The ‘mobile first’ strategy that has been a smashing success for American retail investors using platforms such as Robinhood is now being played out in China. The platform also enables investors to trade on multiple exchanges around the world.”

TRVG: +169% in 1 week – RajCAP

RajCAP identifies an opportunity in Europe. “The trading idea was based on the Elliott wave trading technique and selected for a short term trend reversal trade with a zigzag pattern. The risk/reward ratio was 5.43, which is quite good for short term swing set up for 1-2 week trade duration. I recommend a trend reversal set up done in pull back only when it starts outperforming the index and after a proven confirmatory wave pattern.”

BB: +163% in 2 weeks – viditrade

A stock caught up in the r/wallstreetbets turmoil, but one with true potential. Rod David of viditrade: “We all know BlackBerry as the handheld device/phone that got buried by flip phones, iPhones and Androids. But realizing its brand is tied to security, they’ve focused on that. And AMZN just partnered with BB, which could go a lot of ways, but generally in one likely direction.”

OPTT: +133% in 10 days – Tom’s Stock Picks

OPTT converts ocean wave energy into electricity. Tom Waller of TC Investments: “This is an innovative company to say the least. They have ‘Powerbuoys’ that they offer to customers like the US Navy. I was invested in this company in July and its price hit $4.70+ (6x) in the last 3 months. It’s set to run higher with the inauguration.”

CCIV: +109% in 3 weeks – Bull & Bear Trading

SPACs remain hot. Someone who followed every one of Bull & Bear Trading’s ideas would have doubled their money over the past 8 months. Terry Donahue from Bull & Bear: “Churchill Capital may bring Lucid Motors public. This stock seems to be at the right place at the right time.”

SMMT: +92% in 8 weeks – Turbo Trading Swing Trade Membership

Bob Knight, our top stock picker since Trade Exchange’s inception continues to pick winners, with 22 of the top 80 trades over the past three weeks. “Sometimes, it is not always about trading the stocks in vogue. We also find stocks with less volatility but that still give huge gains. Lots of people would like to double their money in less than 2 months.”
