Cabot Undervalued Stocks Advisor 420
April 1, 2020
Today’s featured companies are benefiting from the current focus on healthcare, online commerce, dining at home and limited travel behaviors. These companies are Amazon.com (AMZN); Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY), a new addition to the Growth & Income Portfolio; Mercury General Group (MCY) and Tyson Foods (TSN).
All of the stocks that I follow with any regularity finished falling in March, and began to rebound. I’m glad for that, and happy to be buying low. However, there’s still a dark cloud on the horizon. The longer the quarantine situation lasts in the U.S. and in foreign lands, the uglier the economic situation will become. That’s because many companies are scrambling for cash to pay their employees, rent, utilities, etc. while they’re not actually selling any products that can replenish the cash flow.
There are various stocks in today’s issue that I indicated would be good for traders. “Good for traders” bears no resemblance to “good for buy-and-hold investors”, okay? Please read my recommendations carefully. When in doubt, send me an email with your questions.
Lastly, take your time investing cash positions. Many stocks will be in trading ranges, so watch for opportunities to buy low and sell high within those ranges. To that end, I’ve listed short-term upside price resistance targets on quite a few of the stocks. When the stocks rise to those targets, you’re going to tell yourself “my stock is going to keep rising!” Instead, odds are very strong that your stock will turn down. This will be a trader’s market for much of 2020. If you’ve ever toyed with the idea of buying and selling within a stock’s trading range, this is the year to do it! Best of luck to you!Read This Issue
