Today, the Stock Trader Alert portfolio has a pair of new trades. We’re closing out an underperforming holding and moving into a stock with great potential.

Welcome back from the Fourth of July holiday! I hope you enjoyed the time visiting with family and friends as much as we at Banyan Hill did.

I’m Loving It: A 19% Gain in McDonald’s

I’m Loving It: A 19% Gain in McDonald’s

The Stock Trader Alert portfolio is holding its ground for another week, and as a result, there are no new trades. Also, we here at Banyan Hill are observing the July Fourth holiday on Monday and Tuesday next week. Because of this, next week’s update will be delayed until Wednesday. I hope you all enjoy the celebration […]

Staying the Course

Staying the Course

Today, the Stock Trader Alert portfolio is on hold, as the system consolidates gains and looks for better opportunities in this volatile market. Recent volatility related to Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods Market may have cause a bit of a stir, but you are still outperforming the market. Six of your 10 Stock Trader Alert portfolio holdings are sitting […]

Still Winning

Still Winning

I’m excited about how our system is performing compared to the broader market. Since the Stock Trader Alert system is on hold after a busy past couple of weeks — meaning there are no new trades this week — I want to highlight that success. See, even in light of the current pullback in the tech sector, […]

Trade Alert: Quartet of New Trades

Trade Alert: Quartet of New Trades

The Stock Trader Alert system is back with a fresh quartet of trades. After banking a gain of more than 1% since joining the portfolio last week, we are leaving McCormick & Company (NYSE: MKC) behind. Joining McCormick in the dustbin is 3M Company (NYSE: MMM), which has gained about 9.5% since it was added […]

Sticking With the Program

Sticking With the Program

After a flurry of activity during the past couple of weeks, the Stock Trader Alert system is holding its ground today amid the current market volatility. So, let’s take a breather this week. This pause gives me an opportunity to address a couple points. First, next week’s update will be delayed until Tuesday due to […]

Trade Alert: 4 New Trades

Trade Alert: 4 New Trades

Today, the Stock Trader Alert system is off and running again with four new trades. With retail stocks struggling this past week, it should come as little surprise that both Ross Stores Inc. (Nasdaq: ROST) and TJX Companies Inc. (NYSE: TJX) are leaving us. The system is replacing them with Ecolab Inc. (NYSE: ECL) and […]

You’re Outperforming the Market

You’re Outperforming the Market

After churning out roughly seven trades in the past three weeks, the Stock Trader Alert system is taking a breather this week. Wall Street has been quite volatile of late, with North Korean rhetoric and the French elections making waves. However, the Stock Trader Alert system has not faltered in making the best of the […]

Trade Alert: 2 New Trades

Trade Alert: 2 New Trades

Today, the Stock Trader Alert system triggered another pair of trades for us: Cintas Corporation (Nasdaq: CTAS) is leaving the portfolio and will be replaced by CVS Health Corp. (NYSE Arca: CVS). Overall, the portfolio continues to outperform the broader market, with our 10 stock positions up nearly 11%. By contrast, our hedge in the […]

Trade Alert: Navigating a Volatile Market

Trade Alert: Navigating a Volatile Market

Today, the Stock Trader Alert system has kicked out a pair of new trades, with our Fastenal Company (Nasdaq: FAST) position getting stopped out early due to an unfortunate earnings reaction. Despite meeting Wall Street’s earnings estimate, Fastenal’s shares declined sharply in the wake of the company’s quarterly report last week. It’s a testament to […]

Trade Alert: 3 New Positions

Trade Alert: 3 New Positions

Today, we have a trio of new positions from the Stock Trader Alert system, as the portfolio adjusts to shifting geopolitical tensions. The emotional concerns swirling around U.S. involvement in Syria, rising oil prices and a brewing situation with North Korea are all key reasons why it’s smart to have a portfolio system like Stock […]

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Today, we have another pair of trades from the Stock Trader Alert system, which you’ll find below. It’s been an up-and-down couple of weeks in the market. First, there was a bit of a drawback after the failure to pass the GOP health care bill. Since then, equities have recovered somewhat. We should expect a […]

An Emotional Storm

An Emotional Storm

There are no new trades from the Stock Trader Alert system today, but I would like to offer up my thoughts on the recent market action and provide a bit of insight into the current short-term pullback. As you know, markets experienced a sell-off on March 20 and 21. It was the biggest one-day drop […]

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Today, we have another pair of trades from the Stock Trader Alert system, as the portfolio continues to beat the market by removing the emotion from trading. And there has been quite a bit to get emotional about lately, with the Fed raising interest rates — and promising more hikes down the road — geopolitical […]

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Today, the Stock Trader Alert system has kicked out a pair of trades as we head into what could be a potentially choppy week on Wall Street.

Letting Our Profits Run

Letting Our Profits Run

After last week’s shake-up, the Stock Trader Alert system is sticking to its guns this week, as there are no new trades. The market kicked off March with an impressive rally, and last week’s new positions quickly moved higher. However, there is some trepidation among traders due to geopolitical concerns surrounding North Korea and next […]

Trade Alert: Two New Trades

Today, I have a pair of new trades recommended by our Stock Trader Alert system. Before we get to today’s picks, however, let’s do a little portfolio review — because our results continue to steadily outpace the S&P 500, which has inched up just 0.9% since the start of the year. That means our system […]
