Cabot Growth Investor 1424

July 18, 2019

In tonight’s letter, we share a couple of ideas for those of you that don’t like to hold all your stocks though earnings; we review a couple of new names that are on our watch list (ESTC is one we’re very intrigued by) and go over all our current Model Portfolio stocks as many are set to report earnings during the next two weeks.

Cabot Growth Investor 1423

July 3, 2019

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.

June 20, 2019

The big news today is that our Cabot Tides are now positive, telling us the market’s intermediate-term trend has once again turned up, and thus making all our market-timing indicators positive.

This morning we sent out a bulletin announcing this and discussing two new buys and you can read more about those in this issue.

This buying brings our cash position down to 23%, which is still high for a bull market, but we won’t rush; we’ll watch carefully to see where the real leaders are and guide you to increased investment in them in the weeks ahead.

The market remains in a correction, and with the intermediate-term trend pointed down, we’re still advising a cautious stance. That said, we do think the pieces are in place for a new advance, from positive longer-term evidence, a big dip in sentiment and bullish action from many leading growth stocks.
In tonight’s issue we review all of our stocks, fine tune our watch list and we also look at the medical sector, which we think could be a leadership area going forward for a few reasons.

May 23, 2019

The market correction continues, and we’re now seeing the selling pressures broaden, with many resilient growth stocks beginning to come under pressure. The longer-term evidence remains positive, so this is still an overall bull market, but our intermediate-term Cabot Tides are clearly negative, so we advise being cautious—cutting back on new buying, holding a chunk of cash and keeping losers and laggards on tight leashes.

Cabot Growth Investor 1419

May 9, 2019

The smooth uptrend of the past four months has run into a trade war roadblock this week, with the major indexes and many stocks taking hits as tariffs look set to rise. Our Cabot Tides are now on the fence, and while we have no changes tonight, we are holding 20% in cash and have at least one name on a tight leash.
We’ll go with whatever happens from here—should this turn into a short-term shakeout, we’ll hold our stocks and could even do some buying. But should the Tides and/or a stock or two crack, we’ll do some work on the sell side.

April 25, 2019

When the market picture gets confusing, as it often does, it pays to have some reliable indicators to depend on—rather than the guy on the evening news. So today, after a couple of weeks of market correction that have done serious damage to some leading stocks and led many pundits to ask whether we’ve seen the market top, we turn to our indicators and ask whether the bull market is truly over, and here’s what they say.

Cabot Growth Investor 1417

April 11, 2019

The past few weeks have been choppy and challenging for many growth stocks, but we’re happy to see some of the yellow flags from last week be addressed–our Cabot Tides, which were on the fence, are again positive, and most growth stocks that dipped to support have found buyers. Of course, there remain some worries (earnings season is coming up; relatively few stocks are hitting new highs), but most of the evidence remains bullish
Tonight, in fact, we’re putting some of our sidelined cash back to work by averaging up in one stock and starting with a half-sized position in another, which will leave us with 17% cash.
In tonight’s Cabot Growth Investor, we talk about all our current holdings, highlight one beaten-down sector we’re keeping a distant eye on for a new upturn, as well as look at some little-known names that are on our watch list.

Cabot Growth Investor 1416

March 28, 2019

Two weeks ago, we pointed out some developing divergences in the broad market, and in the short-term, those have caught up to the big-cap indexes and growth stocks, which have generally fallen off in recent days, including a couple of breakdowns. In the near-term, the outlook is still murky, so we advise stepping carefully, though big picture, we remain bullish and, hence, heavily invested.
In the Model Portfolio, we’ve placed some stocks on hold and, this week, sold one stock as it broke down on huge volume. We’re holding 18% cash now, though should the market and growth stocks firm up, we’ll be looking to put that to work in stronger leaders.
In tonight’s issue, we dive in deeper into all our thoughts on the market and our stocks, as well as look at prior environments after blastoff signals to see what’s normal and what’s not (hint: so far, we’re still in good shape).

Cabot Growth Investor 1415

March 14, 2019

After a well-deserved pullback during the past two weeks, the strong action this week from most major indexes and leading stocks is a good sign. Short-term, further wobbles are certainly possible after the strong nine-week advance off the market’s major bottom, but big picture, we remain very bullish and heavily invested.
In tonight’s issue, we write about a couple of simple tips for handling some off-the-bottom names in last year’s high-fliers, as well as reviewing our nine stocks and a couple others that look tempting.

February 28, 2019

The market has slowed down just a touch in recent days, with the major indexes hesitating near some resistance. But the trends remain strongly up (our Cabot Trend Lines has joined the bull camp) and individual stocks are acting well, including many reacting well to earnings. Of course, pullbacks are definitely possible, so now’s not a time to jump in with both feet. But we continue to be bullish and to put money steadily to work.
In tonight’s issue, we discuss all our stocks, and take a peek at one of the market’s leading themes, which looks like it could go far as the bull market picks up speed.

Cabot Growth Investor 1413

February 14, 2019

The market remains in good shape, generally shrugging off a stream of bad news by marching higher. Pullbacks are certainly possible, but most investors are positioned cautiously, which is another arrow in the bulls’ quiver when looking down the road.
In tonight’s issue, we’re putting another chunk of money to work by adding two half-sized positions (one in a stock we already own). That will leave us with 25% in cash.
Elsewhere in the issue, we write about a couple of additional positive longer-term signs for the market (one based on money flows, one based on the market itself), look at some new ideas and review all of our Model Portfolio holdings.

January 31, 2019

The market has been acting in a near picture-perfect manner for the past few weeks, and we’ve responded by steadily adding to our exposure—we put 15% of our cash to work in early January, another 20% last week when our Cabot Tides turned positive, and tonight we’re adding one new (but familiar) name to the Model Portfolio, leaving us with around 35% on the sideline. There are still headwinds (like our Cabot Trend Lines being negative), so we’re not flooring the accelerator, but as the evidence has improved, we’ve grown more optimistic. Tonight’s issue goes over all our current stocks (including tonight’s new addition), and details a better way to “buy low” than most investors use.

The rally off the climactic Christmas Eve low has been very impressive, triggering our 2-to-1 Blastoff Indicator that prompted us to put some money back to work last week. Since then, the action has been encouraging, and our Cabot Tides are close to a new Buy signal. If it comes, we’ll put more of our cash into potential leading names.

Believe it or not, there are some legitimate reasons for hope as 2019 begins–the market’s December meltdown produced some historic extremes in sentiment and breadth, readings that have almost always occurred near the start of a bottoming process. If all goes well, the market will work in the weeks ahead to bang out a sustainable low, while the best stocks set up in pole position for the next advance.
