Nikkei long term chart

Source: Business Insider

BOJ started/conceived the QE in 2001. I wanted to refer to the long term Nikkei chart to really understand if all that QE and money-printing has really helped them achieve what they have set out to achieve. Although, this chart is just one aspect, it is still somewhat clear - all QE does is give the market a temporary sugar high, which wanes quickly until a new-dose of QE is issued. This is scary... I would be looking at Japan's situation overall and their Debt/GDP is already ~300 so they should be the first ones to default, if and when, the debt holders loose it and start dumping their holdings in open market (assuming there is such a thing as open market ;)).

June 6th 2014

CCJ, USU, URRE -  very good buying point at the moment. These may become a good option if the 'cutting carbon emissions by 25% by 2030' bill passes in congress. Coal industry is anyway a loser as LNG is become a preferred option to burn by the Utilities and the trend is likely to continue, mostly in absence of the bill above 'passing'. If it does pass, CCJ becomes a pure play.

CORN, JO, NUGT TIBX -  good buying levels

AVD - good  buying opportunity for agri chem play (steady eddy with 1.6% APY)

TNH, SQM and AGU - potential long plays on potash price recovery

LAND - potentially good land investment option, yields 3% but is not monetizing its assets well yet

VXX - a very good option trading workhorse

AFAM - great long term buy on 'aging babyboomer' context.. it had some recent hiccups but the outlook is looking good for recovery.. besides, its the only one that is making profits and its competition GTIV is bought out already. AMED is another of its competition but it is losing money as well.

ZU, TWTR - great buying point for a hot post-IPO drop

ININ - good buying opportunity due to a recent missed quarter.. niche play and a buyout candidate!

SLAB - steady performance on earnings, low margins as compared to competition, potential buyout play to improve bottomline performance!

PBPB - potential speculative play - high short interest at 22% sold short.. any good news could trigger short squeeze.

Corn - watch the USDA grain outlook. If El Nino is 65% likely, the crop outlook will be revised that will favor higher grain prices. Coffee is breaking out on similar grounds.

TIBX - Long term support - covered call strategy?

AVAV - long term buy

21st April 2014

AVP (turnaround story, recent quarter was good)

TIBX (target for acq)

FSYS (loosing money, but nat gas mainstream play -- long term? )

TITN (good recent quarter, projections look promising - turnaround?)

AEO (decent money-making quarters still.. possible turnaround story - unlike ARO, which is in red)
