    7. $ALGN – alert at $280
    8. $WB – might take a little here at the 50-day moving average.
    9. $PRAH – clarification of “buy” vs. “hold”. It’s a timeframe thing.
    10. $ANET – Alert $300
    11. $ESNT &n ...
  • Gary: ...
    10. $ALGN - up 43%. Still building a base.
    11. $TREE - needs to be above 50-day MA for my parameters...but early buy here with stop below $330 is another possibility.
    12. $WB - Supply at $140.
    13. $ESNT - back down to entry price. Do not let this ...
  • woodman: $ALGN $ABMD - med devices working.
  • woodman: Add $ISRG to the med devices working. $ALGN $ABMD
  • woodman: @gwenzee $ABMD - okay, bump that to $300. :-) I trimmed a large position in $ABMD, mostly in February, but some before that, to re-balance my med device stocks along the way, having put money into $ALGN and $ISRG when folks seemed to sour on those. They had some decent dips that I used to build up those positions. They are working well enough. Those are the 3 medical device stocks I own, all in about equal $$ amounts now. $GMED would have been a nice 4th one. Woulda shoulda.
  • captron: @woodman $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG $GMED Have been waiting for the pull back to the 21 sma on $GMED for entry.
  • woodman: $ALGN - still holding this one. Looks like it might want higher.
  • captron: @woodman $ALGN Needs to break that 268.40 for sure. The volume seems to be trailing off the last 3 days.
  • woodman: @captron $ALGN - yeah. I'm sticking with it though. Same with $ISRG but ISRG's volume was increasing each day this week. I added to my ISRG on Tuesday and will stick with it too.
  • riskmanager: $ALGN seems to be attracting buyers today.
  • captron: $ALGN - With the lower high we just had, can we look for a lower low. My trailing stop got hit this morning. Watching for re-entry.
  • issues: @captron $ALGN Buy above $220 with stop at $220?
  • captron: @issues $ALGN Those are my intentions if it will go down that far.
  • woodman: @gwenzee $ABMD - I have 3 med device stocks - $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG - they are functioning well on the whole.
  • champ: $ALGN...the same #Day-4
  • woodman: @captron - #MedicalDevices - $ABMD - loving it! $ALGN awakening as well, but needs to get up through 50 day. $ISRG has moved up through the 50 and now the 8.
  • champ: @woodman $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG #MedicalDevices ---- Yes and we are never happy, we all want and expect more.
  • shoredriver: @woodman $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG #MedicalDevices $ISRG....nibbling....
  • gwenzee: @woodman $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG #MedicalDevices Two FDA expansions in 2 days didn't hurt ABMD.
  • captron: @woodman $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG #MedicalDevices I did nibble on $ALGN this morning. At least its on my big radar now. Thanks for your thoughts yesterday.
  • sierramp: @woodman $ABMD $ALGN $ISRG #MedicalDevices $ALGN is up through the 50 day now.
  • champ: $AGN and $ALGN both up around 5% today and I'm still holding but took profits on 1/2 because of risk management...reasons but would like to add back tomorrow.
  • Gary: ...
    17. $ALGN – still rangebound...but tradable bounce at $220. (GSL holding)
    18. $ISRG – very choppy, but some like it here. Support at $380.
    19. $GRUB – Favorable trial verdict...not an employee. This is a big deal.
  • woodman: @Alexander $FCX - I do have $$ in long term stuff, but I also have some available cash. In the long term column, I recently bought $BA and $V, and I recently added to $AMZN and $SIVB. I have also nibbled on $ALGN which I would *like to* hold long term but we shall see how successful I am doing that. I am intrigued by some of the health care plans following their pullbacks, and am considering settling on one for long term with the following as my current candidates: g: $UNH $CI $WCG $CNC. I need further research, however, and I do wonder what affect AMZN's health care initiative will have (though it's likely some time away).
  • captron: @woodman Have you compared $ALGN with $ABMD for your long term hold. I wrestled with this for awhile but when $ALGN took the big hit last week, my mind was pretty much made up. Just curious.
  • issues: @captron $ALGN $ABMD I like the chart of $ABMD better (holding a small position) than ALGN. $ANET is the best (but sorry to say NP) headed to $300. We added to $ALXN yesterday (probably a mistake) when you look at $CELG. There's always $GILD! ALXN reported 2/8 so it's safe in that episode.
  • captron: @issues $ALGN $ABMD $ANET $ALXN $CELG $GILD I agree. Several of my long terms were hit last week so its time to turn some over and I have been shopping for bargains. Charts tell the real story in my mind and with the big sell off last week in $ALGN, I see a lot of pain overhead. Thanks
  • woodman: @captron $ALGN $ABMD - I have $ABMD and have had it for some time. It's a staple of my long term holdings at this point. @gwenzee and I discuss it fairly frequently, as she got me into the stock in the first place. $ALGN was one I held for a while, but sold. It's a buy back at this point.
  • gwenzee: @woodman $ALGN $ABMD Abiomed received expanded FDA approval for indications for peripartum and postpartum cardiopathy with cardiogenic shock. So why is it down slightly today? It's little heart pump just keeps pumping along for the most part.
  • Alexander: @woodman $FCX $BA $V $AMZN $SIVB $ALGN $UNH $CI $WCG $CNC I like your portfolio. You do not need luck. thanks
  • woodman: @Alexander $FCX $BA $V $AMZN $SIVB $ALGN $UNH $CI $WCG $CNC - As a further fyi, I do keep some $$ completely outside the Market as well, including even safe vehicles and cash designated entirely for my business and for keeping the lights on. :-)
  • woodman: $ALGN - taking a shot at this one.

    15. $ATHM – I would not own this. Why? Because I don’t want to own anything now.
    16. $ISRG – Anything here? No, the selloff is too steep. Nothing here.
  • issues: $ALGN only green in Growth Stock List. I bought a starter!
  • issues: Earnings mañana = $OSTK $AAPL $EA $AEIS $CHRW $NUE $AKS $ALGN $PKG. We will continue to hold OSTK AAPL NUE. Added to $OSTK (probably a mistake - but ?) $SKYW $EXEL $CVGI. Sold $IVR $XEC $HFC $LRCX $LGIH
  • Robert1965: $ALGN ATH 280.50+
  • barbed: $algn Does this look like a cup and handle on the daily chart? If so, should I wait for the upcoming earnings report to buy?
  • cmaxwel1: $ALGN stopped out
  • woodman: $ALGN - continuing move up, through resistance to all time high.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ALGN Quality rises to the top
  • cmaxwel1: @woodman $ALGN (Set stop at $260 last night)
  • Danzguy: @cmaxwel1 $ALGN Purdy cup on the weekly. NP, jealous.
  • woodman: $ABMD $ISRG $ALGN - med devices, to name a few.
  • woodman: @debeers $ABMD - in high style. I thought it may take some more work to get through 200, but I held it and let the charts do the deciding. $ISRG doing the same thing at a similar type of resistance. Held that too. $ALGN doing the same thing now.
  • woodman: $ALGN flag
  • bRobert: $ALGN Nice little throwback. Potential add/low risk entry with clear stop
  • bRobert: $ALGN Straight teeth, weed ($BUDZ) and $DPZ $WING for the munchies. $SHAK next
  • woodman: $ALGN back above the 50 day.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ALGN It's properly aligned
  • bRobert: $ALGN MACD cross. Getting ready to resume uptrend after HEALTHY pullback. Weekly fine. Holding stock,.
  • cmaxwel1: @bRobert $ALGN (I sold higher, and bought back at $232), I'm holding for their opportunities in Europe. Ever see what National Health Care teeth look like in UK? No offense.
  • woodman: $ALGN coming back - weekly chart.
  • bRobert: @woodman $ALGN Vacation over. Refreshed and ready
  • bRobert: @cmaxwel1 $ALGN Nice trading. The stock was extended and needed a rest. I use hedges to keep me in and profitable. I've been holding for many years from the $30 area
  • bRobert: $ALGN WEEKLY bounce off 20wk. Nothing wrong . Finishing short er term bottoming action. Good holding stock . Excess rung out. Long leap calls/spreads for many years
  • Ottawagreg: @ROSEY #rotation $ALGN $PYPL $SQ $V $MA $ISRG $DVMT $CGNX $IPGP $SEDG $MU $LRCX $ICHR.... I believe these are the tickers he is referring to. Some big money makers in 2017.
  • woodman: @Ottawagreg $ALGN $PYPL $SQ $V $MA $ISRG $DVMT $CGNX $IPGP $SEDG $MU $LRCX $ICHR #rotation - yes, they were high flyers in 2016-2017 that correct decently in November/beginning of December of 2017.
  • ROSEY: @Ottawagreg $ALGN $PYPL $SQ $V $MA $ISRG $DVMT $CGNX $IPGP $SEDG $MU $LRCX $ICHR #rotation Thanks for this list I will be watching a few of these. Don't freeze your toesies there in your beautiful Country. Minnesota was so cold, the kids kept bringing in wood for the fireplace.

    11. $ATHM -- adding to Growth List

  • bwcarnation1: $ALGN has been moving off the low from recent sell off still holding watching what happens at 50d...would add if breaks thru it
  • bRobert: $ALGN Put in a higher Bollinger band low compared to early Dec. Still some work to do
  • woodman: $ALGN - collapse, took out my stops.
  • issues: @woodman $ALGN me too!!
  • Rasta: $ALGN broke below the 50dma. Had to part ways with my biggest winner for the year.
  • traderbren: @Rasta $ALGN - good move as it could fall to the 200s or the 200dma. The drop on 12/4 was the shot across the bow, but that's the beauty of hindsight.
  • Rasta: @traderbren $ALGN Yes, that was the reference for stops. It'll probably go back up to $235 but I didn't want to take the chance and miss out on profits.
  • woodman: $ALGN also in a decent spot, as long as it can hold the 50 day. I remain long this one too.
  • Gary: ...
    $ALGN – steep drop à Overhead supply.
    $OLLI – earnings selloff. But still above breakout. Stays on the list.
    $IPOs – can check notes in forum.

  • tigerjohn8: $ALGN at best entry point I've seen in a while. Started a new position with snug stop
  • woodman: @tigerjohn8 $ALGN - I have it. It's holding the 50 day and the gap (10/26-27) ... for now at least.
  • ascutia833sunset: @woodman $ALGN Yep I picked it up yesterday.
  • cwelsh1417: @tigerjohn8 $ALGN Snug as in yesterday's low?
  • cmaxwel1: @tigerjohn8 $ALGN (Re-entered) stopped out at 250 a few days ago.
  • issues: @tigerjohn8 $ALGN added also with partial stop at $219
  • issues: I appreciate Dan's comments about this being a 'bull trap'. Dan is right a lot. Like when he said take partial profits when tech was at it high. I didn't follow his advice and regret it especially on $ANET! Wow 40 point drop! Will it ever return back up>? I added to $ALGN $SEDG $MKSI $RHT> and sold 1/4 position in $CGNX and all of $MZOR. Also sold $KRO with small profit. Bought starter in $ADBE! stop at $165. Added to $ROKU with stop at $35! Looking at $CRM and seeing the top is around $108. Not much room 'til it hits it's resistance.

  • tilman: is today a "bull trap", is all the profit taking/rotation over? i look at tickers like $TAN, $ALGN, $ADBE and I think bull trap. I look at tickers like $V, $TTWO, $FB and i wonder if these are buyable?
  • Cwaniak: @tilman $TAN $ALGN $ADBE $V $TTWO $FB I do not think so. Just watch them.
  • phgruver: @tilman $TAN $ALGN $ADBE $V $TTWO $FB They all look like bull traps to me. I see no compelling reason to buy any of them today. If, tomorrow, they open higher than they close today (assuming they close in positive territory) then maybe....
  • champ: @tilman $TAN $ALGN $ADBE $V $TTWO $FB ---- I would also like to know the answer. At this high market level, its really just a guessing game. I would like to know if the Banks and Retail sectors are going to keep Outperforming and certain energy names, in sub sectors, could work also. Great question but know real way to know the answer but they all look like buys.
  • DrScience: @tilman $TAN $ALGN $ADBE $V $TTWO $FB Bull trap? Maybe... Today is day 1 of the three-day rule. If tomorrow brings day 2, that says today was a good buy, but if price hits a stop below today's low, that says goodbye.

  • woodman: @bRobert $ALGN $PYPL $SQ $V $MA $ISRG $DVMT $CGNX $IPGP $SEDG $MU $LRCX $ICHR #Rotation - the key is to have enough gas in the tank to make the trip back to get them.

  • Sluggo: @woodman $ALGN $PYPL $SQ $V $MA $ISRG $DVMT $CGNX $IPGP $SEDG $MU $LRCX $ICHR #Rotation Woodman, you can see my posts last week and I did indeed own a lot of the high fliers but from a lower point. I do not panic, but I gradually sold them over a few days and actually took more profits the weeks before. Dan's #1 rule don't lose your money. Took a minor loss on the whole package, but nothing to hurt me. You are right and who wants to follow all these high fliers down when they can watch from the sidelines and rejoin them later? In other words, I agree with your posts. How long? day, month, year? Why follow the roller coaster down?
