Stock Trading Review for period ending May 03 2019

Sold 10,000 shares of NVDA NVidia Corp on NASDAQ at $182.38 per share. I had purchased those NVDA shares at $178.75 per share. Capital Gain on sale of NVDA = $182.38-$178.75 = $3.63 per share. 10,000 shares sold at $3.63 Capital Gain each = $36,300.00 realized Total Capital Gain. Continue reading

Just Sold 10,000 shares of NDA (NVidia Corp) on Nasdaq at $182.38 per share


Just Sold 10,000 shares of NVDA (NVidia Corp) on Nasdaq at $182.38 per share. Was posted to our Uniquely Toronto FB page at https://www.facebook.com/UniquelyToronto/

So I had bought 10K shares at $178.75 and sold them for $182.38. This resulted in a Capital Gain of $3.63 per share.

https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/NVDA?p=NVDA&.tsrc=fin-srch

Gross Capital Gain on the NVDA trade was $3.63 per share at 10,000 shares = $36,300.00. Not Great, but not bad for a few days work. The one Down Side is that because I flipped it, I will have to pay Income Tax on the full amount of the Capital Gain. Long Term Investors (in Canada) only pay Income tax on 50% of their Capital Gain..

Buying 10,000 shares of RIG (Transocean Ltd) on NYSE on May 03 at Open at Market

A new Technical Trade. I’m stepping back from the Morning Gap trades and going beack to Technical Trades. Tomorrow I will buy 10,000 shares of RIG (Transocean Ltd) on the NYSE at Open at Market on May 03. All my trades are “all or none”.

I don’t think a Million share buy would get filled. also if the stock price is cheap – ie under say $10 per share then I’m sticking to either buys of 1,000 or 10,000 shares. Large volume buys help grow capital Gains but are frustrating because they it is hard to get filled. Then  if I want to dump, it could backfire on me as getting fills could be an issue. 1 K or 10K should be fine.

RIG (Transocean Ltd) on NYSE

Stock chart of RIG (Transocean Ltd) on NYSE. Chart courtesy of www.tradingview.com Buy was triggered by CCI and Woodies CCI and confirmed by RSI. On Aug 21 2017 the stock bottomed at this same level. Normally the price has been above the current price range. Hence I am of the opinion that the price has again bottomed and it is time to buy. This is longer term hold (might be a swing trade or longer – it is not quick flip type of trade).

Buying 10,000 shares of ECA (Encana Corp) on the NYSE tomorrow May 02 at Open at Market

Another Technical trade, based on CCI and confirmed by RSI. Because the price of this stock is under $10, I cannot buy 1 Million Shares. Even an order for 100,000 shares would have some issues. 10K should get filled quickly and easily. I believe that I am a bit early on the buy,  as Friday morning might confirm what I expect will happen. I had waited too long to get into the PINS IPO as I did not expect the share price keep rising day after day without any consolidation (at least not till I bought in).

Buying 10,000 shares of ECA (Encana Corp) trading on the NYSE at Open on May 02 at Market.

My Target to sell will be around $8.35 as Resistance is around $8.50. The Gap Down which was created Nov 01 2018 could get filled and the price could float higher around  $10 before taking a longer rest.

Order Fills

TWTR – 1,000,000 shares at $39.30 per share – filled

AAN – 1,000 shares at $58.00 per share – filled

MTP – 1,000,000 shares at $3.60 per share – filled

PINS – 1,000,000 shares at $34.81 per share – filled

NVDA – 10,000 shares at $178.75 per share – filled

MTP is a foreign BioTech – an ADR – long term this should work out. Short Term loser – went below $2.00 today. Will hold for long term.

Interesting the difference between low price and high priced share performance coming off a Breakout Gap (except PINS which is a IPO and NVDA which was based on the CCI and Woddies CCI).

Stock Trades Review

TWTR – in play today – bought for the long term

AAN and MTP – consolidating. With MTP the key is to stay above $2,00

HELE – in play today – did not get filled as price continues to rise and I wanted to buy in at a lower price.

Low price stocks – SCKT and AKTX – did not buy – they are also consolidating after the Gap Up…

So last week was a fun week for Gap Trading.  A Gap Up indicates that the Trend should change upwards. The problem is after the Gap the price can consolidate – often forming a flag or pennant, before the price continue back upwards.

 

Posted by Vincent Banial

Low Priced Breakput stocks from last week. SCKT on Nasdaq (Socket Mobile, Inc.) and AKTX on Nasdaq (Akari Therapeutics, Plc).

Tried to buy 10,000 shares on Apr 26 of SCKT on Nasdaq (Socket Mobile, Inc.) at open tomorrow at fixed offer of $2.35 per share which was the close on Apr 25.

Why?

Triangle Breakout upwards. Their Gross Margin is over 50% for the Mobile Scanners they sell. Good luck making that kind of gross margin selling Computer Tech gear. I don’t think that Apple make over 50% gross margin. Small company turned a profit last quarter versus a loss previously. sat at the $2 barrier for a while. Now $2 is a nice support area. Target – potential Double…

Not enough Volume on Apr 26 – Order did not get filled

https://finance.yahoo.com/chart/SCKT…

 

Tried buying at open tomorrow Apr 24 one million shares of AKTX on Nasdaq (Akari Therapeutics, Plc). Target is $6.00, which will be a 50% retracement of the prior high on Mar 14 2019.

 

Why?

They have had positive Phase 2 Medical Study Coversin Trial Results. Today the stock price Gapped Up on a high volume increase. The price came back down at the end of the regular trading day but still gapped up overall. Since the target is $6.00 I’ll set a sell stop at $5.75 to $5.90, just under the potential target.

Did not get filled. Not enough volume for 1 Million Share order. I still think it’s a nice breakout stock.

Investigation of Facebook, Inc. by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada

Do you have a Facebook account? If yes then you might be interested in the following Report of Findings.

Joint investigation of Facebook, Inc. by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia.

Click on this link to visit the Official website of the Office Of The Privacy Commissioner of Canada to read the Report of Findings.

The following is from the Official Report of Findings:
Report of findings
PIPEDA Report of Findings #2019-002

April 25, 2019

Overview
In March 2018, in response to a complaint, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (“OPC”) commenced an investigation into Facebook, Inc. (“Facebook”) relating to its compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (“PIPEDA”) in the wake of revelations about Facebook’s disclosure of the personal information of certain of its users to a third-party application (the “TYDL App”)—information that was later used by third-parties for targeted political messaging. In April 2018, the OPC was joined by the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia (“OIPC BC”) and the investigation continued as a joint investigation.Footnote 1

Our investigation focused on three general areas of concern under PIPEDA and the Personal Information Protection Act (British Columbia) (“PIPA”): (i) consent of users, both those who installed an app and their friends, whose information was disclosed by Facebook to apps, and in particular to the TYDL App; (ii) safeguards against unauthorized access, use and disclosure by apps; and (iii) accountability for the information under Facebook’s control.

Bought 1 Million Midatech Pharma PLC American Depositary Shares (MTP) on Nasdaq on Apr 24 at $3.60 per share

 

Had posted thin on our Uniquely Toronto Facebook page. Moving it over this to this site.

This is the last of the buys for the Regular Portfolio from last week. Bought 1 Million shares of Midatech Pharma PLC American Depositary Shares (MTP) on Nasdaq on Apr 24 at $3.60 per share.

Why.

Major Price Breakout upwards with a huge spike in Volume. IMHO Volume Spike usual tend to indicate the Trend Direction will change.  Expected price consolidation after price spike. Did not expect the price to drop this much. Holding, as this should bounce back up after hitting support

Midatech Pharma Plc (MTP) on Nasdaq

When the price spiked up on Apr 24 it hit resistance and came back. Once the price starts back up and goes through that resistance (just under $4.00) the price should rise to the next resistance level around $5.00. Will likely try to sell around $4.90 per share.  Yes, this trade is sitting at a loss, but IMHO the price is above the Support level and so I’m going to be patient and give this trade some time. 

This stock is an example of the danger of trading Gaps. If I were to sell now, I would take a major hit. In contrast, look at the price of HELE since it Gapped. The price of HELE has risen daily since the Gap day. Hard to predict short term price action. I’m playing MTP for the longer term.

Next week I will try to buy 1,000 shares of HELE (Helen of Troy Limited) on Nasdaq at $135.50

Will try to buy 1,000 shares of HELE (Helen of Troy Limited) on Nasdaq at $135.50. It was trading a bit above $139.00 all Friday and closed a bit higher than that. I tried getting filled on Friday, but did not. I will try again next week. $135 is the Support level. Price should consolidate for a few days next week. If I get 1,000 shares at 135.50 per share, then will likely sell at $144.40.

From the latest Earnings Call Conference on April 26 : “This quarter caps great full year results. Net sales for the full fiscal year 2019 grew 5.8%. Leadership Brands grew 8.9%. Online sales grew approximately 28%, and adjusted diluted EPS grew 11.3%

Purchased 1 Million Shares of Twitter Inc (ticker TWTR on Nasdaq) this week.

 

I had posted this trade to our Uniquely Toronto Facebook page earlier this week. Am now brining that post to this site. Earlier this week I had purchased 1 Million shares of Twitter Inc on the NASDAQ exchange.

I am also going to split up the trading into two different portfolios. The reason for that is Low Priced shares of rather unknown companies can be a good vehicle for trading. My problem has been that you cannot get large quantity orders filled because their trading volume is too low. That situation could also come back and bite one, when they try to sell or quickly Dump a large number of shares. For example the 1 Million shares of Twitter  was no problem to get filled. When I want to sell, it will also not be an issue. I’ll post the other stocks that I had posted about on our Facebook page.

So we’ll have the Regular Portfolio and we’ll have a New Trader Portfolio. The Twitter Trade is part of the Regular Portfolio. The low price shares will go into the New Trader Portfolio. This way I can pick up 1,000 shares without issue. One thing which I had picked up on and is my opinion that the more shares that you can buy, the higher your Potential capital Gains can be – and yes the Higher that your capital Losses can be. IMHO high priced stocks are not as volatile as their low cost cousins.

Ok back to Twitter. Twitter released their latest Quarterly result which beat street estimates. Fundamentals look great. The price had Gapped up – positive Technical sign especially when the price is in an extended Up Trend. So I bought One Million shares of TWTR on Nasdaq for an average cost of $39.30 per share.

Note the Low made on July 24 2018 at $41.59. That is my initial Target. There is greater resistance just above at $42.50 – another target would be just below that, say at $42.40. If the price fills that prior gap made on June 11 2018 then the next major resistance is at $45.00. The High Made on July 09 2018 at $46.90 is the next Target. IMHO in time the price of TWTR could break above that prior High. The next resistance would at $50.00, so I would sell at say $49.40. IMHO TWTR has nice potential for a nice Capital Gain over a bit of longer term. This was not bought for Day Trading or Swing Trading. This was bought to try and capture the Capital Gains under the “Investment” clause of the Tax act and so I would get 50% of the Capital Gain TAX FREE (in Canada). 

After a Gap Up, a stock price will consolidate for a few days before continuing on it Up Trend. The price usually create a flag or pennant formation before moving up higher again. It’s just a matter to patiently wait…

TWTR stock chart

Twitter Stock Chart courtesy of http://www.tradingview.com

The following is what I had posted on FB on Apr 23 at 10:02 pm:

Buying a million shares of Twitter at open tomorrow Apr 24. TWTR on Nasdaq. Resistance is the bottom on the Gap formed on July 24 2018 ($41.59). That could be a target to get out. If it breaks up thru the resistance then next resistance is at $46.75 to $46.90. If it breaks upward past $47.79 then looking for $50.

Why am I buying? Strange for me, but because of Fundamentals. Twitter’s quarterly report surpassed Analyst Expectation. You also have the Twitter promoter in the White House who gets Twitter mentioned in the news almost on a daily basis. On top of Fundamentals the CCI looks great. So in my opinion I am buying because of Fundamentals and also because of Technicals.

Bought 1,000 shares of AAN on the NYSE today

 

Have been posting some of my trading to the Uniquely Toronto Facebook page. Bringing this trade over to this our main site.

Purchased 1,000 shares of AAN (Aaron’s, Inc.) on the NYSE this morning. Picked up the 1,000 shares for $58.00 per share.

AAN shares trading on NYSE

AAN shares trading on NYSE Courtesy of Tradingview.com

Reasons why I bought 1,000 AAN shares on the NYSE today::
Prior day Close was $53.27.
Today’s open was $55.05, Which means the Price Gapped UP (ie lots of buyers).

Much Higher Volume than normal at 1.5 Million shares.

Price moved above $56.04, which was the prior high set on Feb 27.

50 Day Moving Average is showing the price is in an extended Uptrend.

The Low of Feb 14 was not surpassed by the low on March 25.
So you had a Higher Low on March 25 which gives an indication
that the trend upward should continue.

Earning Per share rose over 30% in the reported Quarter.

So the Technicals looked great as did the Fundamentals.
