More about Trading Central

Trading Central is a global leader in financial market research and investment analytics for retail online brokers and institutions. Trading Central’s product suite provides actionable trading ideas based on technical and fundamental research covering stocks, ETFs, indices, forex, options, and commodities.

Here are a few stocks that caught my interest.

Sage Therapeutics (SAGE: NASDAQ) has the highest upside potential indicated at +20% after the stock confirmed a Bullish continuation diamond pattern. The pattern indicates a 6-week to 9-month opportunity which was recognized on March 29th

Sage Therapeutics (SAGE: NASDAQ) has the highest upside potential indicated at +20% after the stock confirmed a Bullish continuation diamond pattern.

What was found:

  • This stock has formed a pattern called Continuation Diamond (Bullish), providing a target price for the intermediate-term.
  • A bullish event triggered for Fast Stochastics when the %K line crossed above the %D line. The close prices are trading closer to the upper end of the recent high-low price range, which is associated with price increases.
  • Also the Fast Stochastics %K line has risen above -20 indicating a recovery from oversold.

This matches Trading Central’s “Diamond (Bullish) + Fast Stochastics (USA)” strategy which produced a 10% annualized 5-year historical return.

Kinder Morgan (KMI: NYSE) confirmed a Head and Shoulders Bottom reversal pattern with an upside potential of 9%.

Multiple bullish events have been found from a technical and fundamental perspective:

  • The stock’s price has broken upward to confirm a classic chart pattern, offering a target price for the intermediate-term.
  • The stock is looking like a good value investment because it is above average in two key valuation ratios;
  • Price/Book Ratio is 1.30 which tells us that the stock price is reasonably low when compared to the company’s book value (representing the value of all equity);
  • Price/Cash Flow Ratio is 8.07 which tells us that the price of a share is relatively low when compared to the cash flow being generated by the company.
  • Earnings Yield is 6.31% which represents the return the company earns on every dollar invested.

This matches Trading Central’s “Value Investor Basics + Breakout (USA)” strategy which produced a 13% annualized 5-year historical return.
