This company is going to do what the market does. It is a very diversified company, but it is not a defensive stock. If the economy turns down, this company will turn down as well. In 2014-2015, the stock really hasn’t gone anywhere. It has been in a trading range. This is the period when industrials tend to be weaker.

Energy tends to do well from February 25 until May 9, which is where we are now. However, we have seen a pickup in energy, so what he has done is to put a trailing stop loss under his position. As the position keeps moving forward, he’ll actually raise the Stop and then exit the stock if it starts to show some weakness.

Base metals have a couple of seasonality periods. First is from November until now. China increasing its stimulus for their markets is really what is driving this recently. Right now this is a positive technical pattern in that we are past the highs of 2014. The best way to play this is to put a $11.50 stop loss on the position.

Really not a strong period for semiconductors. This is starting to see a downturn. Not a position he would be looking at. If it drops below the trend line where it is right now, he can see further weakness and would be exiting the position.

(A Top Pick March 23/15. Down 4.26%.) Towards the end of the seasonal period, some sectors start to fall off. He had started to see the whole sector for industrials falling off early. Usually they run until May, but when they start to fall off early, it is telling something about the market. He uses this as a holding place, unless there is something else to be invested in at the time.

(A Top Pick March 23/15. Down 5.83%.) The premise was that this was in a defensive sector. There are talks of a merger and being taken to court, so there is some negativity around the stock. Just too much going on here.

(A Top Pick March 23/15. Down 1.21%.) Sold his holdings on April 23 when it was reaching the end of its seasonal period. It tends to do really well from Oct 28 until mid April, and it did exactly that this year. May still may be okay for this, but in June it starts to fall off. (See Top Picks.)
