CCJ: +44% in 22 weeks – LaDuc Trading’s Dolphin Play Swings
Our expert fished for an opportunity she anticipated at the end of 2020. Samantha LaDuc’s focus is on anticipating volatility at inflection points that move a market, stock, currency or commodity. In this case, it was uranium. She wrote in December: “This company is tied to a commodity that has significant potential into 2021.”
AGQ: +41% in 2 months – Peak Analytics Technical Trade Alerts
Another expert capitalized on an opportunity in precious metals, with ProShares’ 2x Ultra Silver ETF. Tim Walsh, Peak Analytics & Consulting wrote on March 26: “The Euro bottoming should benefit precious metals! AGQ is the most high-octane way to play that!”
DKS: +14% in 2 days – Sound Buy & Hold Picks
A quick gain with conventional retailer. Patrick Moorhead, Sound Buy & Hold Picks: “Dick’s Sporting Goods is an omni-channel sporting goods retailer. This is a great opportunity for a post-Covid recovery play.”
KHC: +13% in 8 weeks – Alpha Insights
A manufacturer of household staples offered an opportunity to capture profits with an extremely attractive risk/reward tradeoff. These types of trades are at the core of Jeffrey Huge and Alpha Insights’ approach: “The shares of Kraft Heinz (KHC) have resolved a classic patterned base formation of the inverted “Head & Shoulders” variety. Following a month-long consolidation, the stock is poised to make another new 52-week high. This should ignite the next leg up in a stock with inherently low volatility.”
NEM: +12% in 1 month – Shah Technical Opportunities
Opportunities also lie with everyday brands you encounter in your neighborhood. Rohan Shah, Shah Technical Opportunities wrote on April 15: “Resumption of a prior bull trend. After a sharp run-up and hitting an all-time high, Newmont encountered a price and time correction. We anticipate this ending, and expect it to break channel trendlines with strong volumes.”
BEAM: +12% in 1 week – RajCAP Swing Cycles
One of several profitable trades identified through the Eliot Wave approach. On May 13 Rajendra Parmar of RajCAP Swing Cycles identified a ‘trend continuation’ with Beam Suntory, a global spirits brand with presence in the US, Mexico, Europe and Asia. He closed that trade 8 days later with a tidy 12% profit. Using this approach, RajCAP booked profits in other sectors including healthcare and technology, so his approach incorporating the psychology of trading allows his followers to move across sectors for opportunities.
