All-Star A List SMHD 12.8.16

I think a mentor gets a lot of satisfaction in a couple of ways.  They’re doing something constructive, so they feel good about that. And when they see the results of this, with the young people they’re working with, it’s very rewarding.                                                                                       John Glenn

So true Mr. Glenn. Thank you for your courage and service-you will be missed.                                                                                                                       DOE                                                                                                                                     

The melt-up continues with all three major indexes closing in the green-in record territory. If you feel left out, remember, at some point this post-election honeymoon will end, and those that are prepared will prosper. 

I hope the rally continues until I finalize my All-Star A & B analysis, to have our Allocation Worksheet completed and ready to roll.

I begin my individual analysis with the ETPs in my All-Star A list. Some in this group may be quality “Garden Growing” candidates.  Today I am focusing on the group A performance leader SMHDETRACS Monthly Pay 2X Leveraged US Small Cap High Dividend ETN.

Key Points…

1.    Every three months there is a spike in the dividend amount

2.    Two Simple Simon Buy signals hit in 2016

3.    Is trading at a high for the year

4.    Has a low average daily volume of only 18K

5.    Is an ETN

Tomorrow I analyze NTG and discuss what I am looking for to consider it as a “Garden Growing” candidate.

This week and next, I will focus on our 2016 Q4 All-Star A & B candidates to prepare you for the next “Garden Growing” season.

Enjoy your evening,

David O. England
