3 Stocks Set To Outperform The Market

3 Stocks Set To Outperform The Market

Stock Pick Update: June 10 – June 16, 2020

The broad stock market has accelerated its uptrend in the last five trading days (June 3 – June 9). More than two months ago on March 23, the sold off to new medium-term low of 2,191.86. It was a stunning 35.4% below February 19 record high of 3,393.52. The coronavirus and economic slowdown fears have erased more than a third of the broad stock market value. Then we saw huge come-back rally, as the index got back above 3,200 mark. However, the index remains 5.8% below the mentioned record high.

The S&P500 index has gained 3.49% since last Wednesday’s open. In the same period of time our five long and five short stock picks have gained 0.84%. Stock picks were relatively weaker than the broad stock market last week. Our long stock picks have gained 3.68%, so they have been relatively stronger than the S&P500 index. However, short stock picks have resulted in a loss of 2.01%. The overall results remain relatively better than the S&P500 index over last months.

If stocks were in a prolonged downtrend, being able to profit anyway, would be extremely valuable. Of course, it’s not the point of our Stock Pick Updates to forecast where the general stock market is likely to move, but rather to provide you with stocks that are likely to generate profits regardless of what the S&P500 does.

This means that our overall stock-picking performance can be summarized on the chart below. The assumptions are: starting with $100k, no leverage used. The data before Dec 24, 2019 comes from our internal tests and data after that can be verified by individual Stock Pick Updates posted on our website.

Let’s check which stocks could magnify S&P’s gains in case it rallies, and which stocks would be likely to decline the most if S&P plunges. Here are our stock picks for the Wednesday, June 10 – Tuesday, June 16 period.

We will assume the following: the stocks will be bought or sold short on the opening of today’s trading session (June 10) and sold or bought back on the closing of the next Tuesday’s trading session (June 16).

We will provide stock trading ideas based on our in-depth technical and fundamental analysis, but since the main point of this publication is to provide the top 5 long and top 5 short candidates (our opinion, not an investment advice) for this week, we will focus solely on the technicals. The latter are simply more useful in case of short-term trades.

Trend-Following Approach: Top 3 Buy Candidates

1. Schlumberger – Energy

  • Schlumberger (NYSE:) trades within a consolidation following breaking higher
  • Potential short-term uptrend continuation/ further acceleration
  • The resistance level of $28 (upside profit target level)

2. IDEX – Industrials

  • IDEX (NYSE:) stock trades along its upward trend line
  • Upside profit target level of $170-175 (the resistance level)
  • The support level remains at $150-160

3. Loews – Financials

  • The market trades along upward trend line
  • The resistance levels of $44 (upside profit target)
  • The Loews (NYSE:) support level remains at $26

Summing up, the above trend-following long stock picks are just a part of our whole Stock Pick Update. The Energy, Industrials and Financials sectors were relatively the strongest in the last 30 days. And they all have gained much more than the S&P500 index in the same period. So that part of our ten long and short stock picks is meant to outperform in the coming days if the broad stock market acts similarly as it did before.

We hope you enjoyed reading the above free analysis, and we encourage you to read today’s Stock Pick Update – this analysis’ full version. There, we include the stock market sector analysis for the past month and remaining long and short stock picks for the next week.
