The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.


Yesterday we talked about the top three stocks on our watch list for the week, two of which were added to the Leaderboard Leaders List over at Investors Business Daily. Leaderboard, MarketSmith and the IBD50 comprise approximately 80% of our swing trades, as these stocks pass the fundamentals and technicals test. Add sentiment and you have a consistent system for trading and investing.


NOW and AMZN were removed from this list.

Jefferies spoke about SSNC earnings and guidance this morning as the stock trades lower (-8%) pre-market. The brokerage downgraded SSNC to a “hold.”


Top Two Stocks – Leaderboard Leaders List

Baozun (BZUN) is a winner. We held this swing from last week, into Tuesday as the stock broke out of this short-term bullish flag pattern. Volume and RS line (relative strength vs. S&P 500) are rising.


Earnings are tentatively scheduled for 05/15/2019

The stock also sports an (A+) Group RS rating, meaning its a top tier stock in its industry group. Earnings are ranked (96), passing a critical fundamentals test. Companies that show consistent increases in earnings and sales warrant our attention.

Canopy Growth was added to the Leader List on Monday. Tuesday’s fade will most likely lead to a buying opportunity for those of you who missed the entry on April 22, the Monday after Easter. Watch for confirmation before adding our starting a new position. We’ll discuss the stock during the LIVE broadcast, so be sure to tune-in today.

Twitter (TWTR) is trying to break out of this gap and go pattern. While this position is developing many took profits on a short-term swing in May calls. We’ll look for another entry in the short-term as the stock remains bullish.

Twitter is on the IBD50 List again this week.

Futures are higher after AAPL and AMD reported last night.

Join us today in the trading room for our LIVESTREAM broadcast during market hours, as we trade BZUN, CGC, TWTR, and other new positions. Watch, listen and trade from 9:20 AM to 4:15 PM Monday through Friday.
