Investment indicator thoughts for the week of May 25, 2014

The last couple weeks have been difficult for investors. The market has primarily been going sideways by giving back any gains that were achieved during the period. I am hopeful that the market looks better this week. This week will be a short trading week due to Memorial Day (my best thoughts to the families of our fallen soldiers), so caution is warranted as some professional investors may be taking extended time with their families. This can often lead to a bit more volatility in the market.

As always, my thoughts should only be used for educational purposes and any decision by the reader to use this information is subject to my disclaimer. In addition to the disclaimer, the stocks mentioned may have changed value from the time I wrote this to the time that you are reading it and therefore the conclusions below, may no longer be valid. The analysis on any investment indicator is always a short-term thought and just by being in this list the stock already is a long-term Good Company  or Fair Company and made my Watch List. If you are looking for long-term analysis of the stock, you should look for the stock in the company list that appears to the far right.

My analysis in this article is based on the investment indicator tools that I describe in my book, "The Confident Investor." If you are not subscribed to this site as a book owner, then you will not be able to see some of the analysis. You can purchase my book wherever books are sold such as AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Books A Million. It is available in e-book formats for NookKindle, and iPad. After you purchase my book, it is free to subscribe to the extra content on this site.

Investment Indicator Thoughts

S&P 500

The general S&P 500 (ticker is ^GSPC and the first line of my investment indicator articles) showed an upsurge last week. This gives us a bit of renewed confidence that our individual stocks will have good growth this week. In general it is tough to buy more of an individual stock when the entire market is going down, but just because the entire market is going up doesn't mean we should invest more in any individual stock. That is why you must analyze each stock individually, as I do in my daily articles.

NASDAQ Composite

The NASDAQ Composite (the ticker is ^IXIC and the second line of my investment indicator articles) showed an upsurge last week. This gives us a bit of renewed confidence that our individual stocks will have good growth this week. In general it is tough to buy more of an individual stock when the entire market is going down, but just because the entire market is going up doesn't mean we should invest more in any individual stock. That is why you must analyze each stock individually, as I do in my daily articles.
