High Flyers Vs. High Yield

Forget Apple (AAPL); sink your money into high yield.


Video Transcript

I’m still of the thought that we’re in a bearish expanding triangle on the S&P 500 futures, which will go down and the fill the gap indicated on the chart in the video. I show you the MACD on the 610 chart, so every candlestick that you see took 610 minutes to actually form.

You can see a huge gap on the chart from the first trading of the day. You can see all of the bearish divergence. Some people call it ‘hopium.’ But what I think is that we’re going to go down and fill the gap when this irrational exuberance peters out. I picked eight new long stocks for my Trending123 traders that have dividend yields between 12% and 24%, and I think we’re going to see rotation into the less risky, high dividend yield plays and out of the stocks that have been going gangbusters.

I would use Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) as an example, but that stock continues to just hang around 52-week lows. But some high-beta stocks, like Herbalife (NYSE:HLF), have had a great run.

HLF was in the mid-$20s. It took a matter of weeks to rally into the mid-$40s. Now, if we were to look at its 60 minute chart, it’s down some 30% just since the middle of January.

The thesis here is with so many stocks looking and acting like this, even though the broader averages technically are at new five-year highs, the amount of stocks that are participating – especially if you were to look at the NYSE McClellan Oscillator (NYMO), there are fewer and fewer stocks that are actually participating in the rally.

So, yes, there have been a lot of stocks that have “V” shaped rallies in 2013, more and more continue to sink down and hit new lows. So, the eight new stocks that I identified for my Trending123 members are going to be stocks that investors will be seeking rather than these high-flying stocks that were great up until a couple of weeks ago and now have been falling apart.
