Weekend Trend Trading: Nothing To Do

This was a pretty boring week for both of my Weekend Trend Trader portfolios. Neither portfolio triggered a sell signal, so there was no need to look for new buying opportunities.

Since there aren’t any new stocks to look at, I thought this would be a good time to review some of the positions that have been the biggest winners and losers for each portfolio thus far. Both portfolios have seen some big winners and some big losers, but overall there has been more down action than up action.

Here are the total returns for each portfolio:

IBD 50 Portfolio

wttibd-portfolio-120813

S&P Indexes Portfolio

wttsp-stats-120713

 

wttsp-portfolio-120813

 

As you can see, there are a few stocks that are really dragging down the returns.

Close To Exit Signals

Here are the two stocks that are closest to crossing the 40% off their 20-week highs threshhold:

ssys120813

trn120813

 

Biggest Losers

These next four stocks are the biggest losers from each of the portfolios. My impulse reaction would have been to cut all of these losses short well before they got to be this significant, but I want to give this strategy a fair shake, so I need to follow it.

Biggest Winners

There have also been some pretty big winners. While I don’t like holding those losers we just looked at, I have no problem at all sitting tight with these stocks that have pushed higher. Here are the biggest ones:
