FADS CAN Is Back in Action

Posted at 1:33 p.m. EDT on Friday, May 27.

They tried to keep Chipotle (CMG - Get Report) down, with worries about raw costs. Fifty-week high. There have been endless negative articles about Netflix (NFLX - Get Report) and how everyone is gunning for it. Just took out the 52-week high. Could there be more people saying negative things about the valuation of Salesforce.com (CRM - Get Report)? I don't' think so. Fifty-two week high this week. Can you believe the power of Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) after the quarter it reported? Sure, with gasoline at $4, you can. Deckers (DECK) skipped a beat, but it has rejoined the bull market show and is moving past that last quarter as a supply chain problem in Europe. That's all it was.

Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) finally getting jiggy, and even F5 Networks (FFIV) is showing life after fellow data-center player NetApp (NTAP) reported a stellar quarter.

In other words, the acronym FADS CAN is back in action, and there's nothing more bullish than having these high-octane leaders back in charge of the next move.

I have been ridiculed as a momentum player by many. I have always rebelled at the characterization simply because what I am really about is realizing the leadership, understanding its valuation flaws, and then playing along with deep-in-the-money calls. It has been the right way to do it since the great bull market began in 1982, and I have made money with it continually. It is actually a more rigorous, limit-your-downside approach than any I have ever been able to come up with.

There is simply nothing wrong with mimicking the big money. It is another tool in the arsenal the way price-to-book is for some or P/E/G rates are for others. It is ridiculed chiefly as a greater fool theory, but what you are really playing is the money-in phenomenon, recognizing that the highest-growth funds are good at marketing and that they get money in and put it to work without serious valuation parameters.
