That’s a great question.  A double top is generally an indicator of strong resistance.  As with all resistance indicators, I believe positions should be monitored a bit more closely near these areas.  At this strong resistance level it is generally likely that the stock will consolidate, then fall back downward as it did when it hit this resistance level previously.  Think of it as if the stock is underneath the ice of a frozen pond.  As it swims along, it…

Though the S&P 500 holds a stronger, 6.42% year-to-date (YTD) return than the utilities sector's 2.95% YTD return, the utilities sector began outpacing the S&P 500 in June and appears to be continuing to do so. The utilities sector holds a three-month return of 5.63%, a one-month return of 2.10%, and a one-week return of -0.85%; clearly outperforming the S&P 500's three-month return of -2.45%, one-month return of 0.25%, and one-week return of -1.86%.

As worries in Europe continue to push markets downward, many stocks are now selling at a relative discount. This two-part series will focus on stocks that appear undervalued due to low price-to-book ratios (P/B) and high, over 20%, return on equity (ROE). A company's price-to-book ratio and return on equity are generally good fundamental statistics to look at when beginning a search for value opportunities. A low P/B, a ratio used to compare a stock's market value to its actual…

A stock's dividend yield is a good initial indicator of the kind of value you are getting when purchasing the stock. A higher dividend yield means a better value, generally.

Healthcare plans' stocks were hit hard in August as budget talks instilled fear into already worried investors. By mid-month, however, many of the industry's stocks began consolidating and finding strong levels of price support. As we moved through September, analysts began taking notice of healthcare plans, using words like "oversold" and "undervalued" when describing the industry. As we are about to close the doors on September, many stocks in the industry have bounced off of price support and are continuing…
