EOM Q&A: Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A VIII 10.16.17

Last week, I concluded the Q&A component of this series.   A special thanks to all that sent questions. 

This week, I analyze the market and current Garden Growing candidates to see if it is a prudent time to buy.

Many are ready to jump in and begin their Gardens, so let’s look at the last 5% pullback and what happened afterward. 

Key Points…

1.  The closest the SPX has to a 5% pullback was last November with a 4.9% pullback-see point A

2.  After the pullback, the SPX rallied 22.6%-see point B

Last week I stated, “If looking to enter at these levels, one needs at least a 5%+ run to break-even before a 5% pullback. 

I calculated when a 5% run would have started.  The answer, mid-August–point C.

Something to consider…

On October 20th, the current run will be the 5th longest run (since 1942) without a 5% pullback (477 days).

Tomorrow, I analyze a Heartbreak Hotel candidate and detail my 85% rule. 

The rest of the week, we see if our All-Star and CEF VIP Fund candidates under or out performed the SPX….from 5% ago.  See red vertical line above. 

This will give valuable insight for those planning to buy at these levels.

Enjoy your week!
