VRSK (7/15/12, +0.00%)


Last week, the major U.S. indexes ended narrowly mixed. The S&P 500 inched up 0.2%, the Dow and NYSE composite finished flat, and the Nasdaq faded 1%. Tuesday’s across the board distribution day downgraded the IBD outlook to “uptrend under pressure”. It’s probably a good idea to hold off making any more new purchases for the time being, keep a close eye on your portfolio, and be prepared to cut losses quick if the market makes a break for the downside.

That said, if you insist on living dangerously, this week four watch list stocks are at or near proper buy points. ALXN, trading at $97.35, has dropped back to within 5% of a $95.11 buy point off of a 4th stage flat base. DLTR, trading at $52.77, after finding support at its 10 week line, is in buy range up to $59.66. TJX, trading at $44.79, is still barely within 5% of a $42.91 buy point after breaking out of a 2nd stage flat base. VRSK, trading at $50.65, broke past the $49.76 buy point of a 2nd stage flat base although, so far, volume has been lacking.

/as usual, your mileage may vary, always do your own homework
