Buy Signal

By on November 9, 2007

The Tactical Timing System has issued a buy signal. When the system was first conceived in the early 1990’s, 5% positions would be initiated in individual stocks. Since that time the portfolios have grown substantially and brokerage commissions have fallen dramatically. Therefore, the position size on new purchases will be reduced to 3% to gain additional diversification. The following will be added to each portfolio today:


Syneron Medical (ELOS)
Gannett (GCI)
American International Group (AIG)
Zimmer Holdings (ZMH)
W.P. Stewart (WPL)


New York Times (NYT)
Stein Mart (SMRT)
Nautilus (NLS)
Walmart (WMT)
Hershey (HSY)

I believe there is a high risk of a very serious recession which will probably result in more buy signals over the next several months. The stocks being purchased have suffered their own personal bear markets, so if things get worse, perhaps they won’t fare as badly as the general market.
