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.

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.

There is Arsenic in Bottled Water, Consumer Reports testing shows

One would assume that Bottled Water is safe to drink and it is. Arsenic is a Heavy Metal. In large quantities it can kill a Human. The amount of Arenic found in Bottled water is not even close to being a Lethal Dose ( which is approx 70-to-200 mg or 1 mg per 1 KG of body weight per day). The issue is that Long Term intake of Arsenic could damge Human Internal Organs.

Click on this Link to visit the Consumers Reports Website to read their post titled: “Arsenic in Some Bottled Water Brands at Unsafe Levels, Consumer Reports Says“.

Current FDA regulations state that bottled water manufacturers are required to monitor their finished bottled water products for Arsenic at least “once” each year under the current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) regulations for bottled water (21 CFR part 129).

In the Federal Register of January 22, 2001 (66 FR 6976), EPA published a final rule establishing a maximum contaminant level for arsenic in public drinking water. EPA took this action, in part, because studies have shown long-term exposure to inorganic arsenic in drinking water may result in increased risk of cancer (e.g., skin, bladder, lung, kidney, liver, prostate, and nasal passage) and is associated with noncancer effects, such as alterations in gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, hematological (e.g., anemia), pulmonary, neurological, immunological, and reproductive/developmental function. In response to this EPA rulemaking, FDA published the June 9, 2005 final rule. This final rule ensures that the minimum quality of bottled water, as affected by arsenic, remains comparable with the quality of public drinking water that meets EPA’s standards.

Click on this link to visit the offiial FDA website to read their Guidance titled: “Guidance for Industry: Bottled Water and Arsenic; Small Entity Compliance Guide“.

The FDA also ruled that the allowable level for arsenic in bottled water is 10 micrograms (0.010 milligrams) per liter of water. (21 CFR 165.110(b)(4)(iii)(A)). That is 10 Parts Per Billllion of Arsenic.

Video is courtesy of the News4JAX YouTube channel

Consumer Reports recently pubished their findings after checking the self publuished Arsenic Tests done  by the Bottled Water Companies. of a number of brands of Bottled Water being sold in the USA.  Many brands were well below the 10 ppm FDA guidleine. One brand in particular contained arsenic levels above the 10 ppm FDA guidline.

Consumer Reports also ran their own lab testing on a few brands, which in the past had registered higher thant FDA stands Arsenic level. One brand tested by Consurmer Reports, had a average Arsenic level of 18.1 ppb, well above the FDA set max level.

Sony’s new 63ft by 17ft TV with 16K screen resolution

Sony has been showing off it’s latest TV. It would not likely fit into your home, because it measures 63 feet in length by 17 feet in height.

Ok, lets explain what 16K resolution means relative to present day HD TV or 1080P resolution. The next step up above HD TV is 4K TV, which has a resolution 4x times that of HD TV.

Click on this link to visit the BBC website to read their article titled: “Sony creates colossal 16K screen in Japan“.

It continues, with each step up in screen quality being 4 times the prior version. So an 8K TV has 4 times the resolution of the 4 K TV. A 16K TV has 4 times the screen resoltion of the an 8K TV.

So a 16K TV will have It has four times as many pixels as an 8K TV, sixteen times as many pixels as 4K TV and sixty-four times as many pixels as your typical home HD TV.

To Stream 4K video from Netflix, they recommend that your Internet Download speed can handle 25 Mega Bits Per Second for each device. If you stream two videos, to two different devices then your Internet must be able to handle 50 Mbps download speeds. Other devices using the internet at the same time would require even more Bandwidth. If you have Cable or Fiber Internet at home, then you should be OK.

For 16K Video Streaming I suspect that one would need to have Gigabit Fiber Service to their home, providing 1,000 Mbps Download connection capability. Even Gigabit Fiber may not work as the packets will stream from say Netflix to your home, but along the way it will pass thru multiple networks. Then consider a very large city where you could have a million homes trying to stream 16K video after supper time. I doubt that the Internet as it now stand would be able to handle such traffic, along with all the other Internet Traffic.

One work around would be to compress the Video before streaming. You know create a ZIP file of the video. Then decompress the file when it arrives at your home. Might have to split up the video into sections. High speed computers could handle decompressing the streaming video file and then displaying the 16K video.

Just remember at the beginning of TV it was all grainy Black and White video captured via a home Antenna. But it was free…

30 years of Failed Climate Change Predictions

Global Warming Fear Mongers have made many Dire Predictions about the consequences of Global Warming err Climate Change. Looking back, you will find that their Dire Dredictions had failed.

Click on this link to visit the National Post news website to read their news article titled: “Conrad Black: Thirty years of climate hysterics being proven wrong over and over again“.

Heck, they even had to change the name to Climate Change, as it was proven that Global Warming had stopped decades ago. They also had to stop using a photo of a Polar Bear out on some ice pack, because Polar Bear populations have been rising for many years, per Canadian Government Polar Bear Census.

Click on this line to visit The Global warming Policy Foundation to read their post titled: “AS POLAR BEAR NUMBERS INCREASE, GWPF CALLS FOR RE-ASSESSMENT OF ENDANGERED SPECIES STATUS“.

BTW, Polar Bears are great swimmers.  Excellent way to waste Tax Payers money doing a Polar Bear Census over a number of years, to appease the Global Warming Fear Mongers. All they had to do was to speak with the Inuit people living in Canada’s far North. who would confirm that Polar Bears populations had been going up for years.

McLaren 650S crashed at 186 MPH. Driver survived

In Germany there are no speed limits on certain roadways. A guy and apparently his girlfriend went out on one of the No Speed Limit highways in his father’s McLaren 650S. He informed the Police that he had been driving at 186 MPH (in the left lane where there is no speed limit). He then lost control, swerving into the right lane and then into a crash barrier. His passenger was thrown out of the vehicle as her seatbelt snapped off. The driver survived. There was no mention of the Driver being severely injured.

Aside from the very sad of the loss of a life, this speaks well of the construction of the Mclaren 650S. The driver survived the 186 MPH crash. I highly doubt that would be the case with most regular cars out on the road even crashing at half the speed at which the McLaren had crashed.

I’m also rather amazed that the tires on the McLaren held up at such a high speed.

Click on this link to visit the Yahoo page to read the new article titled: “‘Millionaire’s son’ kills friend, 18, after crashing £257,000 McLaren supercar at 186mph“.

BTW, I am in no way suggesting that it is OK to drive any car on a public highway at such insanely high speeds. What if they had come upon a slower driving Porsche which was driving at say 100 Mph? The braking distance needed at 186 MPH would likely cause a high speed rear end crash. Try hammering on the brakes while traveling at 186MPH and controlling the car and praying that the tires do not melt or  burst into flames.
