  • numbers: There is a lot of ways to look at data. The report column are: ticker, no days above 20d sma for the last 200 days, growth for 200 days, relative price using the 200 day high/low, ATH (1000 day look back) or 200 day high. $ALGN 194 164 0.98 $CBOE 188 49 0.99 $AABA 185 63 0.95 $BABA 183 85 0.93 $GDOT 182 136 0.9 $PYPL 182 93 0.96 ATH $ISRG 182 68 0.96 ATH $NOVT 180 128 0.96 $IPGP 180 109 0.99 ATH $VRSN 180 39 0.99 ATH $ANET 178 145 0.99 ATH $TRU 177 70 0.98 ATH $MA 176 40 0.94 $TCEHY 175 97 0.99 ATH $RHT 174 62 0.99 $FAF 174 42 0.9 $ADBE 172 59 0.97 $PENN 170 93 0.97 $CGNX 169 103 0.99 $ABMD 169 85 0.96 $JOBS 169 74 0.91 $MCD 169 34 0.91 $TTWO 168 118 0.96 $WK 168 73 0.86 $SBAC 168 57 0.92 *I am not good at split handling, also my vendor may have not been tracking the stock from the issue date so ATH may not match the real data. I do the same report sorted by growth rate. I also do the same report for the last 100days and 50days.
  • Gary: ...
    1. $ALGN – slowing down…but still advancing. I wouldn’t overstay my welcome here. What’s the potential for further upside?
    2. $ANET – as previously noted…the shakeout, once reversed, can be a POWERFUL signal o ...
  • rachel: ...
    14. $ALGN – Growth stock. Still going. Declining volume on Friday’s pullback. About average volume today. Should be using trailing stops. Undisciplined entry. Buying today doesn’t give you credit for the 30% move that ALGN ha ...
  • rachel: ...
    1. $ALGN – up $56 since 10/12 note. Still going. Expanding EPS/Rev growth. Current Status: Steep uptrend.
    2. $ALRM – taking this off the list. Earnings prompted bug selloff. Long time to rebuild…whenever that may be. Oversold ...
  • DAN: $ALGN -- would recommend placing stops on this just below yesterday's low of $246. Stock is still moving higher, and we want to hang on to these winners as long as possible and let the stock tell us when it's time to leave. But as the stock rises, we should be giving is less room because of the probability of a reversal. And when a stock has gone parabolic, a drop in buying pressure can have significant impact.
  • rachel: ...
    COTD: $SEDG -- Looks like $ALGN. Short squeeze. Might still go higher. Buying all day

    $SPX – tax selloff. Successful test of the 20-day MA. Uptrend still intact. Nothing else to say. (If anyone still needs convincing, is it yet obvious ...
  • champ: $ALGN @ $249 ---- They were at a conference yesterday and will be at another one tomorrow 11/9 ....appears that they could be making positive comments....the stock is trying to move up even more....HOD and another ATH, could keep climbing even further...a slow #BreakOut....looking for more positive News tomorrow... from this management real reason to sell this stock......still holding.
  • champ: $AMZN and $ALGN but I didn't miss these...
  • bRobert: $ALGN rolling up calls. On guard for blow off top.
  • Ottawagreg: @woodman $KEM $ESIO I sold $ALGN going into ER and held $KEM. I am not doing this right am I? From what I read the ER was a deep fly home run. Fortunately i did not have a real big position. Still sucks tho
  • gwenzee: @Ottawagreg $KEM $ESIO $ALGN You might want to try Woodman's and my smoothie.
  • woodman: @issues $KEM $ALGN $ALRM $PAYC $CORT $ANET $OLLI $PCTY $IPCP $DVMT $NVDA $CTRL $GWRE $BABA $BLD $SQ $ESNT -I simply don't know what to make of this odd, announced "quiet period" in $KEM. When I think quiet period, I think buyout. But I don't think of a buyout with an announced quiet period. I might be inclined to buy it back when the dust settles if I could make heads or tails of the situation. Obviously, the Market is spooked by it. I see $CORT is on that list. I sold mine today before earnings.
  • issues: @woodman $KEM was on Dan's long term hold list that he went over last weekend. I guess Dan goofed short term. Also on Dan's LTH list were: $ALGN $ALRM $PAYC $CORT $ANET (he said to hold through earnings. Earnings growth up... wow is me today but still holding. Also on his list were: $OLLI $PCTY $IPCP $DVMT $NVDA $CTRL $GWRE $BABA $BLD $SQ $ESNT... (not sure where his list is posted.) Ironically KEM is still #1 in ELECTRONIC-PARTS GROUP #47 and rated 99 Cumulative and B- accumulation. And still on the IBD 50 list.
  • geotheo: @issues $KEM $ALGN $ALRM $PAYC $CORT $ANET $OLLI $PCTY $IPCP $DVMT $NVDA $CTRL $GWRE $BABA $BLD $SQ $ESNT #1 #47 The list is to the right of the top few posts. Select "Watchlist". Right under "Moving", "Trending.
  • tigerjohn8: $ALGN sold half my shares premarket this morning at 224.00. Took Dan's suggestion. Lets see how day goes.
  • rachel: ...
    1. $ALGN -- Big blastoff. Even the bears are wearing Invisalign. $EPS was 82 cents/share. Came in at $1.01. Big beat! You should be selling into this. Fractional selling works. 50% happy. I suggested selling on Thursday pm. In this situatio ...
  • champ: @DAN --- $ALGN....It looks like you are in the winners circle again, with your stock and I know you said that you have been adding.
  • woodman: @champ $ALGN - and thanks @bRobert for this one!
  • bRobert: @champ $ALGN My longest term holding. Started accumulating in the $30's. Paid for all my children's orthodonture (ALGN)
  • champ: @woodman $ALGN --- Yes, we all need to Thank @bRobert for many of his stock ideas, I do. I wish I had a position but I don't at this time.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ALGN A solid winner more than makes up for a fewflesh wounds and and a rare blowup
  • champ: @bRobert $ALGN --- Thats ...Fantastic! I had a dental appointment yesterday and they were all talking about this stock. Good Work!
  • bRobert: @champ $ALGN No thanks needed. You all make me better at my game.
  • champ: @bRobert $ALGN --- I hear you...but I can't help to think, about all the positions that we are holding... because if things don't go right, this house of cards will drop, hard and fast. However, for now we all have about 50 days before a Vote takes place, on the Tax Bill.
  • bRobert: @champ $ALGN . Risk management should keep the shinny side up and the greasy side down.
  • rachel: ...
    17. $ALGN – Today’s hammer is a sign of ongoing demand. Earnings on Thursday. RISKY to hold over earnings. Traders are anticipating good earnings.
    18. $NFLX – higher low and looking strong. Very choppy and heavily watched (whic ...
  • bRobert: $ALGN Squeeze breakout continues. nh Earnings 10/26 Easy holding stock. (many years) Extended
  • rachel: ...
    $ALGN – blasting off into earnings on Thursday. Gapped and reversed today. Still very strong, but you should consider taking some off the table before Friday.

    Member Requests:
    $AIMT – need to sell this now. Gap and “crap”. ...
  • rachel: ...
    4. $ALGN – Earnings Thursday. Pre-earnings run up in process.
    5. $PCTY – Consolidation between $50 and $52. This is still in the buy range (in my opinion). Support should hold at $49, but stock could fall back to $48 and still be ok.
  • ab3250: #stops - I pulled all my stops this morning and put them back after the first big flush. I got stopped out of $ALGN $NVMI

    15. $ALGN – still working. Strong in morning, then started selling at 2 pm. Still resting, and starting Phase 1.

  • tsogles: $ALGN popping out of squeeze
  • issues: @tsogles Thank you tsolgles. I bought it. $ALGN earnings 10/26. Could be an earnings pop, right? How much do you expect it to go? Stop would need to be below 20 day or about $186, right? (6%)
  • issues: @tsogles $ALGN I bought a small starter position today. Stop $186
  • tsogles: @issues $ALGN I'm not giving it much wiggle room (stop just below today's low) and since this is occuring above the 50 dma I'm hoping it climbs st least to $200. I will put om a trailing stop if this break out holds. Good lock.
  • DAN: @tsogles $ALGN That was the appropriate place for your stop. You only get stopped if the breakout fails. Nice job. Dan
  • lecoqsportif61: @DAN $ALGN So i have a question here. Is the stock considered over extended ? Looking in reference to 200MA is far up, but in reference to 50MA is not. Which is it?
  • haroldzero: @Dan $ALGN $GOOGL Thanks Dan for the earlier post on $ALGN. I got in this morning. In terms of GOOGL, can you cover it tonite pls? Thx Harold
  • gbwusc: @DAN $ALGN The move looks great, but the volume is low. Does that matter to you on this move?

  • woodman: $ALGN - moving well out of that little squeeze I mentioned.
  • Bridget: I have to take off a bit early today. Here are my notes: #Notes: Market Indexes are flat but many stocks are moving higher $XLF $GDX - both mostly flat today $OIH - pullback in gas today but lack of volume $XBI - still in a squeeze $XLY - continuing to breakout IBD50 at new highs $FIVE $HTHT $PAYC $ANET $TEAM $RHT $ALGN $V $PRAH $VMW $PYPL $AMZN - coming close to $1000 $TSLA - made a move higher today $FEYE - new highs $BMY - new high today in this rally $NFLX - almost hit $200 today, day 3, ER on 10/16 $GM - another new high $HLF - big breakout $BXP - breakout $TGT - breaking down from this squeeze

Cramer once said the best place to buy is when a stock hits a new high then pulls back 5 to 8 %. Here's the list of new highs. Any 5% or 65 PULL BACK should be bought. Right on?
