Recreation Stocks for the Fourth of July

Brunswick (BC) ($32.80) set a multiyear high at $37.37 on Feb. 15 and then held its 200-day simple moving average at $30.01 on June 21. Before any family picnic, you may be on a lake or at the beach with a boat made by Brunswick, or at the gym using fitness equipment. If it's raining, you may want to go bowling at a local Brunswick Bowling Center. My quarterly value level is $30.69 with a semiannual pivot at $33.55 and semiannual risky level at $39.56. The weekly pivot was tested on Tuesday.

Calloway Golf (ELY) ($6.72) set a multiyear high at $7.30 on Feb. 11, and then tested and held its 200-day SMA since mid-April when this average was $6.28. When I lived on Long Island, I liked to play a round of golf in the early morning of July 4th. Although I do not use Calloway golf clubs or balls, this brand is very popular at country clubs. As long as I made it home in time for the family picnic, all was well in my household. My annual value level is $6.30 with a weekly pivot at $6.56 and monthly risky level at $7.84.

Polaris Industries (PII) ($96.03) set a multiyear high at $97.95 on June 19. Back at the beginning of May the stock held its 200-day SMA, and then at $82.88. On eastern Long Island, a popular recreational activity is driving on off-road or all-terrain vehicles. Polaris makes these vehicles and the helmets and apparel that go along with the ride. My quarterly value level is $71.48 with a monthly pivot at $94.97 and weekly risky level at $101.74.

Pool Corp (POOL) ($53.84) set a multiyear high at $54.88 on June 18. If you own a swimming pool, perhaps it was built using materials from Pool Corp. Pool also provides maintenance products and services to keep your pool in tip-top shape for your Fourth of July party and family picnic. My semiannual value level is $52.56 with a monthly pivot at $53.28 and weekly risky level at $54.07, which was tested on Tuesday.

Sturm Ruger (RGR) ($47.23) has been moving sideways to down since setting a multiyear high at $60.11 on Nov. 30. If you go to a rifle range for skeet shooting, traps or sporting clay, perhaps you will use a rifle made by this company. It also makes hunting rifles and pistols for target practice. My annual value level is $30.99 with a semiannual level at $47.53 and a semiannual risky level at $48.97.
