On May 2 I wrote, Bull Market Will End Without Big-Bank Leadership where I showed that only Citigroup (C) ($48.60 vs. $45.87 on May 2) has a buy rating. Investors should consider booking profits on this buy-and-trade strategy on strength to my monthly risky level at $51.61.
On May 8 I wrote, Record High Transports a Second Chance to Sell and each of the eight sell rated names traded sideways to up that day giving investors a second chance to take some nice gains on stocks rated "avoid-source of funds." This morning we show that 83.2% of all transportation stocks are rated sell or strong sell.
