Cabot Growth Investor 1437

January 16, 2020

The market remains super strong, and we’re pleased to see many growth stocks that rested during December break out to new highs so far this year. Shorter-term, the lack of good entry points among stocks we’re watching is a reason we’re still holding a chunk of cash on the sideline. But we remain very bullish longer-term and think pullbacks and/or shakeouts will provide some solid entry points.

Tonight, we’re standing pat once again with our collection of stocks, most of which act great. In the issue, we do write about one big-cap name that we think has regained its status as a liquid leader (Alibaba), and it’s probably the top stock on our watch list today. Elsewhere we do highlight some other ideas, and as always, share our latest thoughts on all the stocks we own.

It’s a New Year, but the market’s evidence remains unchanged–big picture, it’s a strong bull market, though short-term risks are rising, telling us to be choosy on the buy side and to hold a chunk of cash. That said, we’re still holding on tightly to our winners and think a few of our current stocks can enjoy sustained runs from here.

In tonight’s issue, we write about how many stocks that have recently had big moves actually look to be early in their overall advances; pullbacks, in other words, should offer buying opportunities. We also dive into our stocks and write about a couple of names on our watch list could be our next buys.

As we steamroll toward the holidays, the market remains in great shape, and bigger picture, we continue to expect good things in 2020. Near-term, we are finally seeing a few signs of complacency, so some rocky trading is likely at some point; being choosy on the buy side makes sense. But we’re thinking bigger, aiming to hold our strong leaders with the goal of developing some bigger winners.

In tonight’s issue, we’re adding one half-sized position to the Model Portfolio; that will leave us with 19% in cash, which we’re looking to put to work as opportunities arise. We also review three initial lessons learned from this year, highlight some intriguing names that are setting up well and give you our latest thoughts on all our holdings.

The market has finally begun to consolidate after a heady eight-week run in the major indexes and leading stocks. It’s never fun to see things retrench, and we do think the next couple of weeks (very roughly speaking) could see more choppy, tedious trading. But our focus remains on the intermediate- and longer-term picture, and on that front, the evidence remains bullish, so we remain heavily invested.

The Model Portfolio has been steadily putting money to work, including filling out two positions last week. We now have eight stocks and a cash position of around 14%.

In tonight’s issue, we give our latest thoughts on all our positions and write about yet another unique, longer-term bullish occurrence that bodes well going forward.

November 21, 2019

The market and leading stocks have hit a few potholes during the past couple of days, and given the recent run and some short-term measures, more selling wouldn’t be shocking. But bigger picture, the outlook remains sunny: The trends are up for the major indexes and many fresh leading stocks have emerged. We’ve done a bunch of buying during the past month, though we’re still holding 24% on the sideline as we see how these new buys act.

In tonight’s issue, we talk about our market view, give you our latest thoughts on all our recommendations and write about the two themes that we think are leading the market higher, at least for now. Throw in some new ideas and there’s something for everyone in tonight’s Growth Investor.

November 7, 2019

We’ve been writing for months that the market’s next big move was likely up, and it now looks like that upmove could be underway, with the major indexes in uptrends, our market timing indicators looking good and little selling pressure recently despite a good run. Short-term, a dip wouldn’t be shocking to see, but the path of least resistance finally appears to be up.

October 24, 2019

The overall market continues to chop sideways, with some cyclical areas finding buyers. But growth stocks have just suffered another sharp leg lower, led by the former leaders of this year (cloud software, etc.) but spreading to other areas, too. We’ve been holding cash for a while and have sold stuff that’s broken down, including Snap, Coupa and RingCentral, and are now sitting on a massive 66% cash position.

October 10, 2019

The market remains all over the place, with news- and rumor-driven action pushing the indexes and individual stocks around every day. Our biggest thought remains that, while there’s plenty of evidence that tells us the next major move is probably up, the current environment remains extremely choppy with few stocks hitting new highs and little real money being made. Thus, we remain cautious, holding plenty of cash and going slow on the buy side—although we’re always keeping our eyes open for a sustained turn higher. In the Model Portfolio, we’re a bit more than half in cash and are building our watch list for the next advance.

The majority of the evidence when it comes to the overall market remains positive, but the environment for individual growth stocks remains very challenging—many are still holding up well, but no real money is being made as waves of selling pressures show up every couple of days. We’re still holding our resilient names and aren’t opposed to new buying here or there, but it’s important to hold some cash and keep new buys small until the bulls step up to the plate for more than a few hours at a time.

The market has been wild in recent days, giving investors very mixed messages—on one hand, many leading growth stocks have broken down, but on the other, the broad market is strengthening, with our Cabot Tides actually flashing a new green light. Given the crosscurrents, we’re taking things on a stock-by-stock basis, selling stocks that are cracking support and looking for new buys among fresh leadership.

August 29, 2019

August has featured one big whipsaw after another, with the major indexes breaking down early in the month and making many dramatic moves since. But the overall evidence really hasn’t changed much—the intermediate-term trend still isn’t up for the market or most stocks, while the longer-term evidence is still mostly bullish. Thus, we’re sticking with a cautious stance. Tonight, we’re selling a small chunk of Okta (OKTA), which leaves us with a cash position of around 36%.
Elsewhere in tonight’s issue, we write about all of our current holdings (including newer addition Carvana) and discuss one major indicator to watch closely and how to find resilient stocks in the market. If today’s rally is for real, we could be putting money to work soon, but we’re content to patiently wait for a decisive green light.

This week’s Cabot Growth Investor issue is two days early, because the rest of the week is filled by the Cabot Wealth Summit, which brings all our analysts to Salem to meet subscribers face-to-face and fix all the world’s problems—or at least help them become better investors.

The market remains news driven, with some soothing U.S.-China trade news sending the major indexes back up. Even so, the intermediate-term trend remains unsupportive, so we’re still playing some defense—we’ve pruned our worst performers and losers, but are also holding our resilient performers. From here, we’re just taking it day to day, willing to buy some fresh leadership if the bulls retake control, but content to sit tight with some cash until that happens.
In tonight’s letter, we write a bit about the type of stocks we’re honing in on for the next sustained advance (early stage), touch on the bottom dropping out of investor sentiment (good for the longer-term outlook) and dive into all our stocks and plenty of new ideas as well.

In the last issue we thought growth stocks could easily have a few hiccups, and that’s generally what we’ve seen, with many well-known, extended titles hitting some turbulence. And, looking at the entire market, it lost some steam over the past three weeks, with the news-driven selling of the past two days doing some damage.

Bigger picture, our views haven’t changed at all — this is a bull market that’s likely to move meaningfully higher in the months ahead. We remain heavily invested (88% in the Model Portfolio), but we’re watching things closely to see if this is more of a shakeout or the start of a sustained selling wave.

In tonight’s issue we write about one sector that appears to be breaking free of very long launching pad, with most components doing the same. (Our favorite name in the sector reports earnings tonight.) And we also run through all of our stocks, sharing our thoughts on many of them pre- and post-earnings.

As we begin the second half of the year, the odds continue to favor higher prices for the market down the road, so we remain in a generally bullish stance. Of course, the short-term will likely be news driven (trade talk, war fears and earnings season), but the big picture is looking sunny.
Individual growth stocks are a bit more divergent, with some looking tired but other, newer leaders looking peppy.
