A Fintech Payments play

by admin admin No Comments

Nowadays , almost everybody is talking and probably using fintech solutions, especially in the smart payments sector. Such a name with great potential came up to our quantitative model’s attention, which is based on fundamental factors , SEC filings + analyst reports sentiment analysis, as well as price action based technical factors.
Evo Payments (EVOP) is a US based company with a market cap of 2.6 Billion USD and a very considerable & fast evolving client base in the US & abroad. The filings and analyst & hedge fund reports give a very positive sentiment towards the stock and the funds’s interest has been growing steady and nicely.
It’s a July 2018 IPO, now at 31.53 that popped up in our model’s screen and gives us a probability of >71% to surpass 40 USD the next 6 months.
Taking into account its volatility we would start building a position for the next months. Potentially it may become a multi-bagger holding in our portfolio.

An excellent & lovely service , everyone of us uses doesn’t necessarily implies an excellent investment opportunity and UBER may be such a case. UBER one of the recent & most anticipated IPOs has been facing many headwinds and our quantamental model has raised a SHORT flag.
Based on technical & fundamental factors , UBER now at 44.16 has a greater than 75% chance of underperforming the market within 2019. More specifically a price of 37 – 40 USD , a 10-20% fall from recent levels , has a chance of 72% the next 1-5 months. IPOs especially at their first months after their debut are very volatile up to some weeks after their unlock period.

Almost verybody likes playing games and all of us know characters like Mario, Yoshi, Pokemon , Zelda etc. Now there maybe a nice chance to profit from these , by buying the Nintendo (NTDOY) stock. The company which owns all the above characters and produces consoles & video game titles & characters is on our quant model’s radar, which has recently given its stock a very positive BUY signal based on fundamentals & technical factors. NTDOY at 44.13 currently has a greater than 72% chance to move higher than 20% in the next 6-7 months. Given a relatively not very bad market , the stock will over perform the market by a considerable margin , although its volatility must be taken into account when adding to our portfolio. $NTDOY $QUANT $STOCKS

A not so cloudy cloud SW stock

by admin admin No Comments

In the recent full of mines environment is very hard to find opportunities , without being ready to sustain the possible short term pain. But in harsh conditions and even worse than this of the last days, there is a real chance to identify some real gems. One of this, is Paylocity Holding Corporation (PCTY) which is a cloud SW firm providing payroll & human resources management services. The stock now at 101.42 got a green flag from our stock selection quantamental model based on fundamentals & technical factors as inputs. It has a 85% chance of outperforming the market in the next 3-6 months, even though it had a run of more than 65% in 2019. We would suggest opening a small position and add gradually to it, if the market stabilizes and our hypothesis starts working.

Invest in shipping comeback

by admin admin No Comments

If we want to invest in the shipping industry and particularly in the dry bulk freight rates , one of the best options is the BDRY (ETF) which invests straight in these rates. The rates in the industry are in a historical low , partly due to some one time issues like the Brazil iron ore production and although always things can get worse , the probabilities favor long positions. There are already some signs that prices have bottomed out and our quantamental model has already raised a flag for a long positions. Even though its market cap is very low (3-4m USD) , the fund is open ended , so it can accommodate any size investment. Its price currently stands at 10.73 and our model gives a probability of more than 70% to surpass 13.5 USD the next 3-4 months.

VYGR A promising Biotech Play

by admin admin No Comments

In this difficult market , with China problems and trade wars on the surface , there are some uncorrelated with the market choices like some particular biotech stocks. Most of biotech is not for the fainthearted to say the least, but there are few names , which may reward handsomely the brave & knowledgeable investors. Our quantamental model indicates VYGR(Voyager Therapeutics) is such a case. Even though it has more than doubled the last 2 months and now is around 17.00 USD , there is still more room to run and our model gives a 75% chance to surpass 24 USD, the next 3-4 months for a greater than 40% gain. More conservative investors would be even more happy to be able to wait for a possible retracement to the 15 USD level.

Posted on our mobile app Trading Ideas tab (8th of March) , currently available at Google store( https://lnkd.in/dQMfydE) & soon available at Apple store as well. hashtagVYGR currently at 18.57 (9.2% gain so far).

Can online Forex signals be profitable?

by admin admin No Comments

A lot of traders are wondering if Forex Signals can be profitable for them.

Here is a simple example that can describe whether a trader can gain or not by using FX Signals:

-You will have to pay either by volume or via a monthly fee

– There is always an uncertainty in the revenues/profits made from the signals provided. Even if the signals are good, you have to factor in trading costs (slippage, spread, commissions etc…)

– You have the risk exposure of the trades the signal provider has send you

Therefore (Uncertain revenues) – (A monthly fee + Volume traded + Costs of trading) * (1 – All Risk) = Not always profitable.
