Is Visa affected by delinquency?


Visa

The answer is easy – not, [tag]Visa[/tag] (V) is not affected at all. You may oppose this answer arguing that it is a [tag]financial institute[/tag], so when people stop paying their [tag]debt[/tag] in their Visa accounts the company gets hit. It is a big misunderstanding how Visa operates. Many people believe that Visa lends [tag]money[/tag] and even a friend of mine who trades [tag]stocks[/tag] told me when we spoke together and I informed him I bought some shares, that this may have been a dangerous move because these days delinquency ratio would grow up significantly.

Although the stock market ended higher for the week, almost all my stocks in my watch list and in my account were hit hard. So, let’s see what will happen next week. Is this down trend beginning of a long term correction, or just profit taking? The most important would be Monday’s trading to find out.

International Paper (IP)


International Paper (IP) is another stock which I am about to add to my portfolio. Today it broke from consolidation. Tomorrow I will review the stock in more detail and based on the trading results (if the price will continue up) I will buy this stock.

Citigroup to be dropped off of my portfolio

Citigroup to be dropped off of my portfolio

When I was looking at [tag]Citigroup[/tag] (C) as a potential [tag]buy[/tag], it was in the time when the [tag]price[/tag] was [tag]up-trending[/tag], creating new high highs and high lows and I considered this purchase a pure [tag]gambling[/tag]. I knew it and a was buying it with it in my mind. A pure [tag]speculation[/tag].

Citigroup

However, when I was buying (see the magenta arrow in the [tag]chart[/tag]), the [tag]stock[/tag] stopped creating the new high highs and high lows. I do not like what I can see on the chart. The stock is [tag]down-trending[/tag] or being in [tag]consolidation[/tag]. It has no [tag]momentum[/tag], which it had a few weeks ago.

I decided to drop this stock, but have it in my [tag]Watch list[/tag].

Market monitor – Sectors & Industries


Sectors are slowing down and rotating. However, we may be expecting some growth in upcoming month as Nick Godt is saying in his article. Well, if he is right, it may be the right time to buy some more positions from leading industries. When I chatted with Kevin last week about investing, he got a very good point:

“Do not invest in more than two companies within one sector.”

Very good point I think. Here are the sectors I could compile from the last week market performance. So let’s search for new opportunities within these sectors.

Last 30 days [tag]performance[/tag] (top 5):

Consumer goods +7.47%
Oil & Gas +7.40%
Financials +6.96%
Basic materials +5.86%
Technology +5.30%
