Closing prices on Friday, December 3, 2021



52 Week Index Highs

The markets, looking at the table above, show there were 0 indices reaching a new high, with the last new high on the Nasdaq on 11.19.21. Also, the VL & SPREAD, both broad markets that lean to the big OTC stocks finally reached new all-time highs after failing to do so since 6/11/21, until 4 weeks ago, finally. This could be a sign of a market that is overbought.

The markets find it easier to correct when trading so near the all-time highs. Worse yet is talk of zero growth for the current Q thanks to "Let's Go Branden". Today's market could be getting ready for a major fall thanks to negative economic news that comes out of the White House daily with very little letup in sight.

I have been saying that many stocks have been too high for too long and are still climbing. This does not necessarily mean it's time to sell but with all the trouble were getting out of this Biden mess I believe the time to sell is getting very close. As a matter worth considering, if you have a good profit it won't hurt to lighten up.

I may sound political at times, but I don't mean to. I look at the economy and anything that may affect one way or the other. Unfortunately, with such a mess in Washington I have little choice but to tell you if things keep up in the direction they are going we will have the greatest stock market crash of all time.


Inflation is running away, reaching levels not seen in over 40 year, all because of one guy. Now this guy is blaming high gas prices on everything but himself. Also, the mandate for vaccine's has several companies and states telling "Stupid Joe" no! It's nice to know that more states and companies are standing up to communism and telling Stupid Joe NO.

I have always said there are solid buys and big money to be made in down markets and I still believe this is true. If we do our homework and be patient we can find some big winners. Nobody said it was going to be easy but with patience it may surprise you.

A good example, when searching for a new stock purchase, would be the stocks on this page, as 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.

This is the main reason to visit this page weekly.
I introduce new picks on this page first
.

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

From 
here 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. We will also have to watch out for tax selling as we get closer to year end. It will normally start about now.

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 trading at $1783 and hasn't traded over $2000 since August 2020, off - $8.40 on the week.

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 money might move back into 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 $161.84 this past week, up from $156.81 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 and climbed over $4 before falling back to under $2. The name of the stock is cbdMD. Inc.. It trades on the NASDAQ-BB and the symbol is YCBD. The current price is about a $1.39 (52 week low is $1.33 and the 52 week high is $6.83. The stock has been backing off on big volume, not a good sign, and recently set a new 52 week low. Anything lower from here could be a good entry level, but waiting for the stock to find a near term bottom might be the better bet.

The DOW 30 stocks had 6 new highs this past week following 6 new highs the week before. New DOW 30  highs last week were (AAPL) and , (PG) all 6both have been making frequent new highs, .

The Dow Jones 30 industrials (see chart below) seems to be searching for near-term low, meaning all 30 stocks, with only a couple of exceptions, seem to be showing weakness. Recent selling has brought it down to over -132% with a slight gain this past week.

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 -10%, but currently just under a -13.12%. The question now is which way does it break out? If I am correct big money will be made only in the first three quarters of the year. We could be in for a rough Christmas season.

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

Looking
at the chart above we can see a choppy uptrend early in 2020. The discount to the 52-week high was lower than -22%. After climbing the discount settled some and moved between -7 to -11% until moving from a -10% to a -21% in late 2020
.) From that point on the DOW 30 highs moved to over a -4% before turning down again this past summer.The lowest point in the last year was a discount of -16%, reached on 11/20. Remember this is the average of all 30 Dow Industrial stocks.

The DOW 30 is up +3973.60 (+12.98%) on the year reaching a record new high 3 weeks ago at 36,432.22 (11/8/21). The chart above shows us just how strong the markets were early on the year and falling since summer.

Another stock I like his Walmart (WMT) $137.51, off from
$144.90 the week before, 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 was a recent poll by before turning back up.

Wishing you the best for the rest of the year!   JR

NICE MOVE !!!
Recommended Low BUY was $1.75
Over 5500%

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) (52 week range 72.50 - 164.46), now at $144.01, off from 154.81 last week. Big jump recently was 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 this 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 44.22.

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

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



"Our Newest "Spotlight Favorite"
"Up from under $1 to over $6 in 4 months"
and back down again

cbdMD, INC (YCBD) (52 week range 1.33 - 6.83), now at $1.39 off from $1.49 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 had 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. The stock price recently set a new 52-week low at $1.33. This could be a great short term buying opportunity but wait for something lower first.

Best entry when under $1.40!
 

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

 
Cisco Systems ( CSCO ) (52 week range 43.35 - 60.27), now at $56.23, up from $54.67 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.

 T
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 20.90.

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 $45.
 
Best entry under $45.

A "Featured" "Spotlight Stock"

Moves up in down markets
This stock could double from here

Comtech Telecommunications ( CMTL ) (52 week range 16.79 - 30.40), now at $25.52, off from 25.96, 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 before turning back up and climbing again over 100%.  The forward PE is 30.34.

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, with a move to near $35 possible.


Entry best under $20 !


"BUY HERE"
A "Giant Winner" "Spotlight Stock"
(But not anymore)
(the stock moves like a snail)
 
Fonar Corp. ( FONR ) (52 week range 14.93 - 20.40), now at $15.84, off from $16.74 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 and so as the stock. Waiting might be the better that, 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 9.66.

As far as the trading range goe
s, the stock had a high of $33.15 in in October/17. Currently trading at $16.73. 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 near $16 !


"BUY HERE"
A "Low PE"
Buy On Weakness!

Intel Corporation
(
INTC ) (52 week range 45.24 - 68.49 ), now at $49.25 up from $48.78 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 9.55 leaving room to climb.

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



"From $56 to $167 Just In Just A Few Weeks"


Qualcomm (QCOM) (52 week range 122.17 - 188.77), now at $176.51, up from $175.74 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.


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 22.43.


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 !!!
UP STRONG FOR SEVERAL WEEKS

TetraTech (TTEK) ( 52 week range 113.14. - 192.91), now at $183.94 off from $184.35 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 trailing PE of 43.18. A long weak market could take the stock down under $120.

Hold here with best entry anytime under $140! OK to lighten up here!


***
"HOLD 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 $1.87 off from $1.925. This stock always makes strong move higher after falling anywhere near the $1.10 low.

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 near $1.70.
