US Stock of the Day - Understanding How it Works

US Stock of the Day is for traders who are looking for a US Stock to trade each day. I base my picks on US Stocks I follow on the Nasdaq, Dow, S&P and other indices such as the Russell 1000, etc., watching for a swing in the momentum upward. I keep a tight stop loss on all trades to minimize my risk... and allow the great stock trades to continue rising. These are not recommendations... merely entertainment. Please see the warning at the bottom of this page.

US Stock of the Day for November 16, 2011

Preserving Capital...

In some market conditions, like we've seen lately, preserving capital can be one of the most difficult challenges for the investor. Yet, anyone can do it if they bury their money and simply fail to invest it. 

So the real challenge is setting yourself up to take advantage of market rises when they happen and limiting or minimizing your risk when markets fall. The Evening Investor Strategy, on which this is based, continues to do this well. 

Let's take a look at how we sit at the end of today...

November 11th, I chose AZO @ $331.71. It triggered a $335.02 stop loss for a 1% gain.

November 14th, I chose RVBD @$29.18. It closed up today @ $29.50. We'll set the stop loss @ $29.18 to preserve our capital.

November 15th, I chose HLF @ $57.85. It triggered and closed at $57.91. It seems markets will pull back, so I'm setting the stop loss at the purchase price.

November 16th, I'm choosing SH @ $41.64.


The Overall total return is 70.6% since my first purchase in June.

So far... 21 winners... 5 even... and 21 losers (at approx. -1% each) for a great overall profit.

I'd encourage you to visit Invest in the Markets for great educational articles, stock analysis, and trading strategies. It's a great site no matter how new or experienced you are as a trader.

See you tomorrow!
