Royal Bank of Canada is another one on my long term watch list. Checked their last quarterly again to see if there was a gotcha like too much over exposure of debt in one category or risks to their revenue. Didn't see anything alarming. They haven't canceled their upcoming dividend. I'm nibbling a little of Royal Bank as well. I really liked them at $65 a share, but now its hard to ignore them at $55ish (markets about to spring up so its last close of $49 probably won't happen this morning).

So far so good. Disney is up ~10% since I jumped into this. The markets tries to look weeks out to price current stocks. This means that the end of this pandemic might start to be valued into the market. Its insignificant though to our assessment. Book value per share of $50 means that we were buying a lot of real assets and an earnings prospect of $5 per share. The numbers and value proposition seems to be there.

I've watched Whirlpool for about 4 years now. It has done well do to a focus on pushing manufacturing, but is now crumbling under the current stock market pressure. I'm taking a nibble here. Again, expecting more blood, but its book value per share is nearing its actual stock price. Earnings are strong and I don't see any really external threat long term to their business. (I've made a position in WHR in the last 24 hrs).

Another one I'm putting my money where my mouth is. Unprecedented brand loyalty. Was just at Disney World and it was packed right up until it was shutdown due to health concerns. Disney+ may see a very healthy boost next quarter as everyone is quarantined. The parks closing is just a blip and Disney's future bets (Disney+) is getting the boost. If you like Disney anyways, and you can hold for three years, take a nibble. (I've made a long position on Disney in the last 24hrs)

The Boeing Co. (BA), Big Long

$123.27-$7.43 (-5.68%)

as of EOD yesterday

So... I'm starting to put my money where my mouth is. Boeing rapidly went from stupidly overvalued ($400), to a very risky, but manageable risk, at ~$100. I tried to get in but had to wait a few minutes (it took a moment just for a market order to get through). This won't be a quick buck. More pain is likely to come. But Boeing crumbling means millions of jobs (lots of subcontractors, GE is one for example) vanishing. So I think a lot of stake holders want it to be successful. And frankly, they have a terrific operations and manufacturing business. I have made a position in Boeing in the last 24 hrs.

With Boeing up 30% today, the hard part of investing starts. Should we sell Boeing? Its easy to just sell into a 30% jump and make the quick money. It may even be the right call right now as the market is still prone to falling. But I want to hold Boeing longer. If my analysis is correct, Boeing is still undervalued... on the assumptions they can return earnings back to previous quarters.

Invesco QQQ Trust

Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ), Long

$186.01$3.70 (2.03%)

as of EOD yesterday

OK, the chart is of the NASDAQ Composite Index and NOT "the Q's" (can't locate the Composite Index ticker here). But the level I'm watching is the 9088 for support ( a "3 bar reversal level"). This gives a little extra room to bounce around. I note a few of the indicators in my simplified model are now neutral, so not "out of the woods" just yet.

BA, Big Long
The Boeing Co. (BA), Big Long

$123.27-$7.43 (-5.68%)

as of EOD yesterday

So Boeing has gone from $400 a share to almost $100 a share. I've been a huge bear on Boeing stock for years, but not because of the company but because of its stock's unsustainable price. If you're patient, I think Boeing can come back from this in the next two years. It needs to heal, but removing the rot which was their CEO was a huge step in turning the ship. If they can JUST get back to their earnings per share (~$15/share) then this is a huge bargain. What you may not know is that Boeing is a very efficient plane building machine. Imagine jet planes on moving conveyors efficient. Don't jump on Boeing for a quick buck, but for long term value. Their debt has risen badly and they need time to fix their financial situation.

I'm really annoyed this position is doing so well. Underneath all of this, Kroger was a grocer that showed their investors they had a plan and direction with all of this digital competition. What looks to be windfall gains may actually just be a company with a good plan. Its why I've held this position so long.

Disney World had quite a few technical issue while there. Rides were breaking frequently; however, this seems to be due to the massive crowds stressing the system. They have invested intelligently in updates and new areas like the Star Wars area... and it was very impressive. The seamless and high quality integration of new intellectual properties makes me confident they can turn around earnings growth. Definitely like Disney at this price while the market is in a panic, though wouldn't be surprised if the panic drops Disney into the 80s price range before recovering long term.

Just notice we are approaching a critical psychological resistance line of 2400 points. If we get to 2400 points, we won't stay there long. Either we are free falling right through, or we can see a rapid snap back. Don't know which way but I'm thinking the roller coaster ride is far from over.

Taking another look at Wesco's Quarterly (http://wesco.investorroom.com/). Healthy organic growth and growth in areas that are not just industrials (petro and tech). EPS right now at a staggering 3.3. Book value per share is at 50! This merger is going to mess up that book value per share... but the accountant's audited the company at a book value per share of $50, and its at $17 a share. (Note: I've purchase shares in WCC in the last 24 hrs)

**POSITION UPDATE**
Image12 step process here: I confess . . I'm a Wyckoffian. OK, that's done. Why do I say this? Because of the concept that Richard Wyckoff taught that volume confirms price. I'm posting the chart before Friday, because Friday is a "quad witching" day with futures, options, et-al expiring. That will mess up index volumes, so I'm NOT looking at Fridays volume at all. Next week. I don't see any "green" here, no glimmer of increasing volume on Up bars. Thus, I'm waiting to see some strength come back. (chart courtesy of Wordern Bros.; used with permission)

What a double whammy... a financially risky merger prior to the fall: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/wesco-international-updates-financing-plan-for-anixter-merger-301020106.html, then exposure to a weak Aerospace market. This one is really bad, but I'm going to hold on to it. Revenues have been beating expectations. Their diluted earnings per share is 5.14, meaning they will make money equal to their stock price in 3 years (but earnings will probably take a hit this year).

**POSITION UPDATE**
ImageThoughts from our friend at the Indiana Tasty Trade Group: 0. Corona Virus - US has reached Pandemic Status with 4661 Cases and 85 deaths. Extracted the US numbers from the John Hopkins Corona Virus Tracking Website. The markets are pricing in the impact of new Social Distancing Behavoir. . Need to see 1 of 3 things ( Cure, Containment, Leveling off of Deaths) before we will experience a significant bounce from this dramatic market correction. There is a silver lining - China has only 1 new case yesterday. How do you trade this? Stay short my friends. Maybe Nibble long on China. Go Long Bonds, Gold, Silver, Cryptos and those companies finding cures and/or better detection/protection ( GILD, CODX, MRNA, DD, MMM, VIR, RGEN...) https://gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6

Investing is more than just numbers and graphs. Its about owning something. Its about determining the right board members, CEOs and company direction for the stocks you own. Its more than just lining your pockets, but also about how your company affects our communities. Stockbossup is more than just financial literacy; its learning to be the boss of the companies you invest in.

So here we are again. 2400 on S&P 500 is a critical resistance line. We fell right through it and then bounce right back up to it. If we fail resistance AGAIN, ugh, its going to be bloody. Don't know the direction but we will not be staying here long.

More chaos for Boeing. Not a healthy predicament. Nikki Haley, previous governor, resigns Boeing's board.

**POSITION UPDATE**
Whenever the markets take a sudden turn, I like to go back and to a post mortem to see IF there were any warning signs. I post a daily chart of the S&P 500 index vs. the Cumulative Volume indicator. Note the divergence at the market top. Wyckoff would call this action an Up Thrust after a Buying Climax. i.e. the "Smart Money" selling into rising prices. Right now I'm waiting for some type of base to build via a trading range. There has been damage done and it will take time. "Wait for It!" :)
