Took over Schering-Plough in 2009, which expanded their pipeline of pharmaceuticals, drugs, etc. Pays about 4% yield so likes it from an income standpoint. With a 40% payout ratio dividend is relatively safe. Might not give you growth that you would like. If you think economy is going to grind higher, health care is not a sector to be in.

Starting to get a bit overbought and is starting to turn. Banks are decent long-term plays and you are getting a good dividend so good for a long-term hold. Dividend increase is forecast. If you want to trade, you can sell and buy back at $70-$72.50, the 50 and 200 day moving averages.

Has had a bit of a rally since July but is still below the 200-day moving average. Wait to see if that is a resistant level or if it will break through. Earnings momentum is average.

Has had a sideways movement for the last 6 months or so but well above the 50 and 200 day moving averages. Decent dividend of 3.6%. Missed their earnings estimate last quarter, which would make them shy away.

US High Yield Bond Index ETF. Really a copy of US version Hi Yield Corp Bond ETF (HYG-N). This one pays 7.25% while the US one pays 8.7%. If you think economy is going to be in rough shape, you don't want to own it but otherwise not a bad space to be in.

In the near-term, he expects some of the short sellers, especially in the US, are probably going to cover their Shorts and the stock might have some momentum. There are still some issues, namely market share and overseas government security. Wonders if the stock will get stuck again at the 50 day moving average.

Likes the industrial space in general. This one is just bumping up against its 200-day moving average and he wonders if it will stop in that area. Like buying the entire index because they are in so many different spaces. Earnings momentum is relatively flat. Current year and next year's growth is on par with the rest of the S&P 500.
