How are the Rolling Stocks picked?
Q: How are these stocks picked?
A: I pick the stock symbols that appear on the Rolling Stocks list, from the symbols that are suggested to me via persons such as yourself, who also receive the Weekly/Daily e-mail from me. Some I get right off the various discussion group's message boards. At times I simply insert a narrow range of prices into one the stock screeners, to see what will come up. Regardless of how I acquire any given stock symbol, I always evaluate them the same way before putting them on the list. Basically, just as I state at the beginning of the Rolling Stocks list, on each e-mail. I only look for two things to start with.
1) That the stock is under $25.00 a share (this is because I have to draw the line some place and I feel that the majority of us probably can't afford to make multiple purchases of stocks, with any real amount of shares involved, at prices higher than this.)
2) And when I run a historical chart on the stock, that it looks like a Roller. I don't worry about the fundamentals at this time. After watching a stock perform on the list, for an undetermined period of time. I then decide if I personally would want to stick any money into it. If I decide that I like it, then when the price falls to where I want to buy at. I check out the fundamentals and if they look reasonable, I buy it. If I can't afford to buy at that time, I just set it on the back burner and wait until it hits its cyclic low again. In the mean time, I keep an eye on it to see if perhaps it'll start to show signs of lost splendor, I.E.; gets too high in price, going out of business or stops rolling. If any of these occur, I'll probably drop it from the list.
Q: How is the buy price determined?
A: I determine the buy price, by again, running the Historical Charts of the stock. Here are the chart settings that I use when determining the buy prices:
1) Price Display; Candlestick
2) Backgrd; Default
3) Moving Average; EMA (3-Line)
4) MA Values; 60
5) Top Indicators; Price Channel
6) Bottom Indicators; Volume+
7) Time Period; 3 Months (this is the maximum, I frequently look at shorter time spans also)
8) Frenquency; Daily.
By observing the last cyclic low and the support line of the channel. I determine what I believe to be the lowest price that the stock will drop to, before it begins its increase in price once again. That lowest price is what I target as the buy price, which I then state on the Rolling Stocks list.
