"The odds are against intraday
rallies, but they do happen.
But you can't call them unless
you know what Cramer says to
The rational, smart, empirical to try to predict a real rally from an ugly market.
#1: Look for an oversold market. First, you need an oversold market.
#2: Look for very few bulls. When you have a lot of bears, you don't have a lot of people who have gotten out. And, when you have so few bulls, it's likely that you've got more people who want in.
#3: Third condition: Look for rallies late in the day. Intraday rallies start late in the day. Anything that starts mid-day or early morning, will probably fail, because that kind of rally brings out sellers.
Only the rallies that start around 2:45pm tend to be successful. Because the buyers just overrun the sellers - they don't have time to put orders out between then and the bell.
#4: Fourth condition: Sometimes rallies can happen after the margin clerks clear out everybody who bought stock on margin, or borrow money - a foolish thing.
#5: Wait for the shorts to
cover. When shorts
cover, stock is bought back and
this can trigger a rally.
The bottom line!: Luck does not matter. Intraday rallies are rare, but they're easier to find if you use my tips. Sometimes you can make your own luck, but not when it comes to a rally."
"It's the one thing you can
always count on... vanity!
Those wheels of commerce are driven by our desire for wrinkle-free, unsightly hair-free skin.
So, how do we play the smooth skin, well-groomed bull market? With best of breed of course.
I want you going after best of breed in the cosmetic laser space, and in the world of cosmetic medicine too.
I've got a double play for you.
PMTI (PALOMAR MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES, INC. ) is the laser king, and
for skin treatment, I think you need to go with:
AGN (ALLERGAN INC)
The bottom line!: I think PMTI and AGN are great ways to play the vanity bull market."
