Value investing is dead?

Value investing

Whenever experts state that something is dead, hated or disliked, one has to start viewing that sector in a more favourable light. Value stocks are likely to start trending upwards shortly. We suspect one more wave of pain might be necessary to drive the last holdouts out of this sector.  CALM is an example of a value stock.  When the masses state something is dead, the opposite is usually true. Buy when the masses are panicking and run when they are Euphoric.

Market Sentiment

 

 

The small surge in bullishness appears to be short-lived, what remains constant is the number of individuals in the Neutral camp.  Until the individuals in the bullish camp surge past 70% for several weeks in a row, the markets are unlikely to put in a long-term top.  Corrections ranging from mild to strong is all most investors will have to worry about. Most of the pullbacks will be in the mild to medium ranges with the occasional pullback falling into the “strong” category.  At this point, the odds that the SPX will trade to and past 3000 are now close to 70%.

Despite being extremely overbought, the trend for the major indices of the world (Germany, US, Australia, Britain, etc.) is up.  The Australian markets are still extremely overbought both on the weekly and monthly charts, so at the least investors should wait till our indicators on the weekly charts pullback to the oversold ranges.

This market is in sore need of one strong pullback, but this market is irrational one cannot expect the market to pullback just because it’s trading in the extremely overbought ranges.  Therefore our gameplan is to continue opening long positions in stocks that are extremely oversold on the monthly charts. This plan will remain in force until 1-2 of the major indices like the Dow, SPX or Nasdaq experience a bearish signal on the monthly charts.

 

 

Though the Dow and the SPX are trading in the overbought ranges, on the weekly charts the Dow, as shown above, is gearing up to trend higher. The MACD’s have experienced a bullish crossover right at the halfway point (minimal oversold zone).  We would not be surprised if the Dow traded to the 23650-23800 ranges in the near future.  Risk takers can use pullbacks ranging from 350-450  points to open long positions. The Dow does not need to pull back 350-450 points in one day. For example, it is currently trading slightly above 23400. Risk takers could open long positions from 22950 to the 23050 ranges.
