52 Week Index Highs

The markets, looking at the table above, had no indices reach a new high this past week versus 1 the week before. Also, the VL & SPREAD are both broad markets that lean to the big OTC stocks and each failed to set a new high since 6/11/21. This could be a sign of danger ahead.

The the markets are strong, but you can't judge a book by the cover. Although the markets are acting decent this close to the top it might make us feel like there's no end to the bull.Nothing could be further from he truth. We need to remember the indices are trading at the high already meaning only big institutions are buying, not the private investor.

At this point the only one's that can win are the investors already owning the stock, simply because most stocks are already too high to buy. Also, it is easier to set a new high when the index, or market, is at the top.

With Stupid Biden continuing to do stupid things, the markets are going to go down and they're going to go down hard, just like the economy, therefore, we need to enter "major caution" into our strategy." Remember you heard it here first! Also, inflation is climbing faster than it has for several years, which could easily send the bear out to pasture and the bull into hibernation.

A good example, when searching for a new stock purchase, would be the stocks on this page, as almost all of them have moved up quite well, although there are still a few that still have room to climb. Also, there are no bad stocks on this page.

The recent move from my newest stock, cbdMD (see below recommendation) moved from a low near 0.50 to over $4 and back down to under 2 dollars again is showing what this stock is capable of. (This is a steal.)

This is the main reason to visit this page weekly.
I introduce new picks on this page first and you
heard about cbdMD here first.

Speaking of new picks if you bought
Know Labs, Inc. (OTCQB:KNWN) 9 weeks ago (recommendation below) you would Then up almost 500%. From $2.03 a share to over $7.50 before backing off.
Learn more about Know Labs, Inc. below

now on, in my opinion, the markets have little reason to continue climbing with all the damage Biden is causing, plus the big jump in inflation. Remember, inflation is an enemy of the markets.

If we want to get in the market today we want to look at the trusted and true stocks such as Apple Computer (4 for 1 split), Walmart, Intel Corp., AMD (big mover) and others that "hopefully" have fallen back enough to put them in a buy area. If your choice has not fallen back far enough, in this market, don't buy it.

The price of gold had been bouncing up-and-down recently after falling from the $2000 per ounce level, which was much too high, as far as I'm concerned. Gold is currently at $1750 and hasn't traded over $2000 since August 2020.I still don't feel metals are a safe place to be, especially after the big moves up in the last couple of years, but under Biden anything can happen. Also, with the jump in inflation it may cause money to move to the metals. If you want to buy metals look to silver as the better bet (after a pullback.)

Since I am a technician first, the fundamentals will always take a backseat while the trend will stay in the front. Due to the recent giant rally in the market we are finding many stocks are simply too high to buy. We can no longer count on the recent trend of any industry, meaning research and homework will be needed to find the winners within each industry.

My long-term pick, a stock that could be held for the next 20 years, would be Apple Inc., although the stock climbed over $499, before splitting. It's the kind of company that won't stop growing. They've got a lot of money and are very creative. The 4 for 1 stock split a few months back makes the new price lower with the stock closing at $146.06 this past week, off from $148.97 last week.

My near-term pick, is a stock that hasn't been trading that long and has a 52-week low under a dollar but has been climbing ever since. The name of the stock is cbdMD. Inc.. It trades on the NASDAQ and the symbol is YCBD. The current price is about a $1.97  and the 52 week high is $6.83 (recent). The company recently announced the completion of an $18 million secondary offering at one dollar. The stock is off the lows and trading strong, making anything lower from here is a buyers dream.

I say jump on this stock right now! I will bring more of this company to you soon but
don't wait for me with 18 million new dollars the stock could easily climb over
the previous $7.24 and higher,. a strong move from here.

The DOW 30
stocks that keep setting new highs this past week were Microsoft and Proctor & Gamble. These stocks have continued to set new 52-week highs. Although the new highs have expanded to IBM, CSCO & JPM, more in line with the economy.

The Dow Jones 30 industrials (see chart below) are closer to their highest point in a long time, meaning all 30 stocks, with only a couple of exceptions, are trading very near their 52-week high. Although, recent selling has brought us down to over a -9% and under the -10% support level. This could be a warning.

This happened in 2010 when the discount to the 52-week high for all 30 stocks was a -2.87%. From that point on the market sold off simply because too many stocks were too high to buy.

I'm betting that the OTC stocks will outperform the blue chips on the upside and once the virus is behind us the big OTC stocks will rule, but only until Biden messes it up. I believe we are starting to see signs of trouble when looking at how long the chart below was trading around -7%, but currently just under a -10%. The question now is which way does it break out? If I am correct money will be made only in the first half of the year.

Dow 30 discount
See more information on the DOW 30 stocks by clicking here

at the chart above we can see a choppy uptrend in the middle of 2020. The discount to the 52-week high was lower than -22%. The discount moved between -7 to -11% until moving from a -10% to a -21% in only 7 days (2/28/20
.) From that point on the markets fell quite hard all the way down to a discount of -41.53%, reached on 3/23/20, before working its way back up to a high of  -3.25% on 4/16/21 with a current close at -9.42%. Remember this is the average of all 30 Dow Industrial stocks.

The DOW 30 is up +3978.40 (+13.00%) on the year reaching a record new high 4 weeks ago at 35,625.40 (8/16/21). The chart above shows us just how strong the markets have been in the last year, except for a decent drop at election time and a decent drop several weeks ago.

Another stock I like his Walmart (WMT) $144.73, off from
$145.89 the week before, up around $6 in the last 18 weeks, because it has become more aggressive and it seems to be attacking Amazon. No matter how big Amazon is, Walmart is in a position to not only catch Amazon, but if they're smart they can overtake it. This is because each and every store is a warehouse making it possible to deliver things to you in just a few hours from the time you order, either online or on the phone. The share price has been climbing almost daily, but we saw a decent pullback this past week.

Wishing you the best for 2021!   JR

Recommended Low BUY was $1.75
Over 5500%

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) (52 week range 72.50 - 122.49), now at $103.88, off from 105.20 last week. Big jump this past week, due to strong earnings.

AMD recently expanded its desktop processor lineup with new processors that deliver superior performance, features, and near-silent operations. A couple of new processors (A10-7890K and Athlon X4 880K) offer increasingly powerful processor options available for anyone seeking outstanding game play and power efficiency for their desktop PC.

AMD's data center GPU sales increased significantly over the last here, driven by a double-digit-percentage increase in the shipment of Radeon Vega graphics cards, which were in high demand.

AMD stock has been climbing almost nonstop because of the enthusiasm around its 7nm (nanometer) product portfolio. All the hype did pay off. In the third quarter, AMD launched its first set of Ryzen CPUs (central processing units), Navi GPUs (graphic processing units), and EPYC Rome server CPU. All three products are doing well in their respective markets. However, one product that has become popular—and scarce—is AMD’s new product in the Ryzen portfolio, the Ryzen 9 3900X

AMD could end up cornering 10% of the server CPU market by the end of next year thanks to the launch of its 7-nanometer Rome processor. AMD claims that Rome will deliver substantial performance improvements over EPYC, so don't be surprised if the company manages to eat further into Intel's server dominance.

The price of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. just didn't want to stop climbing but finally gave in several weeks ago, due strictly to the market falling on virus fears, but returned to climbing. This has been one of my top choices with a return of several thousand percent from my $1.75 buy and all I can say is if the market keeps climbing, so will AMD. AMD has a trailing PE of 36.62.

This stock tends to follow the market and is currently too high to buy.

Too high to buy, hold here with best entry on big pullbacks!

"Our Newest "Spotlight Favorite"
"Up from under $1 to over $6 in 4 months"
Higher ground still ahead


cbdMD, INC (YCBD) (52 week range 1.75 - 6.83), now at $1.97, off from $2.27 last week.

cbdMD produces and distributes various cannibidiol (CBD) products. It owns and operates the consumer hemp-based CBD brand, cbdMD. The company's product categories include CBD tinctures, capsules, gummies, bath bombs, topical creams, and animal treats and oils. It also offers pet related CBD products under the Paw CBD brand name.

I first gave you this stock on 01.12.20 at $1.05 and followed through with a BUY at $0.58 on March 20 and the stock has been climbing and holding, or adding new ground, during the virus attack on the markets. The company recently announced that Net Quarterly Sales Jumped 67% Year-Over-Year To $9.4 million. E-commerce Sales Increased to 72% of Total Net Sales. Confirms Its On Track To Reach Positive Cash Flow This Year.

I like this one a lot and the future promises much.

Best now and again on any pullback!

"Consider short term buying under $35"
"A Dow Jones Industrial Average Stock"
Cisco Systems recently reached a new 52-week high

Cisco Systems ( CSCO ) (52 week range 35.28 - 60.27), now at $56.85, off from $57.89 last week. Recent new 52-week high. This Dow Jones Industrial Average stock (replaced GM).

CSCO is a very well-liked company and a very active stock. Cisco Systems Inc. described the current economic conditions caused by the global pandemic as worse than the dot-com crash of 2000 and the Great Recession of 2008, but so far is it faring better than expected.

he networking giant reported earnings and revenue better than Wall Street’s revised expectations for the quarter Wednesday. Cisco’s revenue of $12 billion was down 8% from the year-ago period, but slightly better than consensus estimates of $11.9 billion, and adjusted profits of 79 cents a share were even better than expectations of 71 cents a share.him

The stock has been trading in a tight range within any breakout promising to move past $50 a share. The trailing PE is 22.74.

The  current price is too high for entry but the downside should be limited, even in a decent market correction.
However I do like the longer-term growth. Entry would be best if under $40.
Best entry under $36.

A "Featured" "Spotlight Stock"

Moves up in down markets
This stock could double from here

Comtech Telecommunications ( CMTL ) (52 week range 12.96 - 30.40), now at $25.71, up from 24.89, last week. Our original buy under $4, in 2003, carried all the way to over $50 and split twice along the way. CMTL has become a stock to own for the long term again after trading near $9 in Oct. 2016.

Comtech has been receiving multi million dollar contracts all over the place. One in October from the U.S. Army valued at $98.6 million. Another contract for $7 million for high-performance transmission amplifiers also in October and another one just a month ago from the U.S. Army for $22.2 million.

Comtech shares have climbed from $10.09, a 200 percent move since the beginning of the year and a new 52 week high, before backing off to under $12.  The forward PE is 29.06.

Comtech, which makes equipment used in satellite and other mobile communications systems, has a strong cash  position and has been receiving new contracts repeatedly. The stock was up over 200% in the last 52 weeks.

A "best guess", due to the recovering market a move to near $35 is possible.

Entry here with best under $15 !

A "Giant Winner" "Spotlight Stock"
(But not anymore)
(the stock moves like a snail)
Fonar Corp. ( FONR ) (52 week range 16.51 - 25.42), now at $17.00, off from $17.02 last week. I first started following Fonar in 1982 and have followed it every day since. The stock is very liquid, as it usually trades strong volume daily. Great products would be the reason to own this stock, but recently business has slowed some waiting maybe even better have, at least till this falling market finds a bottom.

With so many years behind it, the best MRI scanner on the planet, far less shares because of a reverse split a couple of years ago is the real reason for this stock to be one of the best performers this decade, and it did it all in a few years.

It was a great ride and still is if in near the low end of the range. The stock seems to reach the point where it has considerable trouble climbing and has been a poor performer so far this year. The trailing PE is 11.95.

As far as the trading range goe
s, the stock had a high of $33.15 in in October/17. Currently trading at $17.77 entry in this area could bring an easy 8 dollar profit, or about a 50% return and should be relatively safe from falling too much lower
If wanting in buy when under $17 !

A "Low PE"
Buy On Weakness!

Intel Corporation
INTC ) (52 week range 43.61 - 68.49 ), now at $54.26 up from $53.84 last week. Intel is a great company to own for the longer term but too high to buy. The stock fell off a cliff after reaching the 52 week high in December, but bottomed out in February at just under $28 before setting several new highs.

Intel announced earnings that beat estimates and it sent the stock soaring a few weeks back, but recent news about QUALCOMM and Apple concerning the 5G network hurt Intel. Combine this with the Chinese virus we could see something under $45.

Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), had to cut its full-year top-line expectations because of weak demand for its data center chips. Chipzilla's data center sales were down 6% year over year to $4.9 billion in the most recent quarter, while the market was anticipating $5.1 billion in revenue from the segment.

The current PE is 12.05 leaving room to climb.

If wanting in, watch close with entry best if under $50 !

"From $56 to $157 Just In Just A Few Weeks"

Qualcomm (QCOM) (52 week range 108.30 - 167.94), now at $133.60, off from $142.68 last week. A very active stock, a fast growing company and a great industry. The stock is active and stays strong even in down markets.

Not that long ago the
Modem-Licensing Saga had ended as Apple and Qualcomm Settle. The biggest technology licensing lawsuit of all time came to a surprise ending when Apple and Qualcomm suddenly settled all legal actions across the globe after two years of disputes.

QCOM recently unveiled Snapdragon-backed third-generation 5G modem — X60. Upping its 5G chip dominance in the global market, the much-awaited launch is likely to boost network performance and provide flexibility to operators with optimized spectrum resources, in the face of universal migration from 4G to full-fledged 5G ecosystem. Clicking on the following link will give you the story News.
QCOM is setting on $12.91 billion in cash with a book value at $7.25 with cash per share at $11.44. A positive would be the trailing PE of only 16.69every day.

The stock climbed too high for entry. Anytime we can get in near the 52 week low there is a strong chance we will own a money maker. Nice company to own on pullbacks.

Hold here! Up strong recently but too high for entry here !

- Nice Long-Term Stock -
A Big Winner for the Spotlight
 Stock has been screaming !!!

TetraTech (TTEK) ( 52 week range 85.91 - 152.23), now at $144.72 off from $147.59 last week. A very nice young company in a great industry (Technical Services). Tetra Tech is a leading provider of consulting, engineering, program management, construction, and technical services addressing the resource management and infrastructure markets.

TTEK has approximately 10,000 employees worldwide. The stock has moved from $71 on 6/17 to over $88 today, approximately 3 weeks. Credit goes to strong earnings.

TTEK recently announced that it has clinched a $85-million contract from the U.K. Department for International Development (“DFID”). Per the single-award deal, the company will support DFID’s Powering Economic Growth in Northern Nigeria (LINKS) program.

The current price is too high for entry considering the forward PE is 36.30. A long weak market could take the stock down under $90.

Hold here with best entry anytime under $90! OK to lighten up here!

Money can be made on quick moves if in at the right price
Up from $2 on 2/5/21 to over $4.35
All in 2 weeks

Know Labs (KNWN) formerly Visualant Inc. (VSUL) (52 Week Range - 1.10 - 4.83 ), now at $2.43 off from $2.95. This stock always makes strong move higher after falling anywhere near a dollar.

Know Labs, Inc. (OTCQB:KNWN) Know Labs, Inc. focuses on the development and commercialization of proprietary technologies in the United States. Its technology uses spectroscopy to direct electromagnetic energy through a substance or material to capture a molecular signature.

Know Labs, Inc. designs scanning devices made with electronic, optical, and software parts to produce and capture the light in the United States. Know Labs is involved in all types of ID products, even the badge many workers wear to get into work.

The (about 2 years ago) 1 for 150 share reverse left only about 1.8 million shares trading as the stock fell from over $9 dollars to the under $0.20. A new offering had just been completed again, and again under the cost for most shareholders, but it appears the company may have learned its lesson.

Continue to hold here with entry-level to be determined. We can make money with entry on anything near $1.70.

Shop for the bargains in the secondary stocks for potentially bigger profits. Many of the smaller stocks offer a greater opportunity for bigger profits. Looking there might be the place to be. Smaller stocks will move around on their own merits and not so much due to the changing economic situations.
