This is one that he probably wouldn’t touch with a 10 foot pole because of all the controversy that has been going on. Chart shows a very strong downtrend but has been showing signs of finally bottoming. During the last month or so, it has started to outperform the market and is currently above its 20 day moving average, but it is debatable if this is a trend or not. Needs to show a period of time where it is showing regular trends.

Do medical stocks have seasonality? There are a couple of specialty healthcare ETFs that are just coming into their seasonal strength. One is iShares US Healthcare Providers (IHF-N) which has seasonal strength from now, right through until the end of January. The other is iShares US Medical Devices (IHI-N) with seasonal strength from the end of November until the middle of February. Both of these have very, very strong seasonality during that time.

Chart shows the long-term trend is on the downside. It is currently trading below its 20 day moving average and is clearly underperforming the market. As yet, this is not an attractive Buy.

Normally you would think that a change in the nickel price would have impact on the stock. Nickel has very strong seasonality from around this time of year through until May of each year. However, the stock is not following that pattern. Chart shows the trend is still on the downside and, as yet, still hasn’t shown signs of bottoming. Significantly below its 20 day moving average.
