As I continually preach – build a watch list of high-ranked, fundamentally sound leaders which are setting up in bullish technical bases of consolidation. When they break out, those are your buys.
Early each market morning I am diligently screening through hundreds of high EPS and RS ranked stocks that have solid fundamentals.
I am looking for those select few which are setting up in bullish technical bases and which looked poised to possibly breakout.
For the few I find, I assign each their own specific trading criteria such as a TRIGGER PRICE and MAX BUY PRICE and add them to a report I call – the Stock WatchList: Morning Update.
If a stock from that morning report breaks out above its TRIGGER PRICE, I then issue a BreakOut Alert.
From there the breakout’s volume is checked and monitored, and if the day’s volume is at least on pace to be +50% above the average daily volume, then that particular stock is confirming a BUY signal.
Simple as that.
This Past Week There Were Two High-Ranked Buyable BreakOuts From the…
Stock WatchList Morning Update
#1 Incyte Corporation (INCY – Nasdaq) focuses on the discovery, development, and commercialization of proprietary therapeutics in oncology in the United States and internationally.
This stock was included in the Stock WatchList: Morning Update that was emailed to all subscribers at 8:30 AM on the morning of 11/30.
I noted in this past Monday morning’s report at 9:15 AM – “Our INCY broke out above its downward trendline on Friday (1/6) with a +31% increase in volume. Just watching to see if shares can clear resistance on the previous highs (near$110) in the same fashion.”
Shares made a news-based break out that morning as INCY opened with a gap up above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE of $110.05. Volume was noted then as confirming a BUY signal.

In an afternoon update I noted that “gap opens” such as this one can be tough to buy, and may continue to be volatile, so caution is advised for those who may have bought by default this morning.
Shares did hold up the following session, yet sold off on Wednesday with above average volume.
The stock was quickly back to making gains on Thursday (+2%), however volume did lack conviction.
Friday’s action was muted with quiet trading ahead of the 3-day holiday weekend.
Going forward, any trading below the recent lows ($112.50) would be the first concern, especially if an eclipse of that level is coupled with above average volume.
#2 AngioDynamics, Inc. (ANGO – Nasdaq) designs, manufactures, and sells various medical, surgical, and diagnostic devices for vascular access, surgery, peripheral vascular disease, and oncology in the United States and internationally.
This stock is highly-ranked and has a very good fundamental history.
It was first included in the Stock WatchList: Morning Update report that was emailed to all subscribers on 11/20 at 8:30 AM.
It broke out this past Friday, as shares traded above the posted TRIGGER PRICE of $17.74, and a BreakOut Alert was emailed at 11:27 AM that morning.
In that BreakOut Alert I said – “At this point the volume is confirming a buy signal.” This was as the stock was trading at $18.01.

For those who may have bought this latest breakout, the stock did pull back a bit from the highs, yet still posted a solid +3% gain on Friday as the volume was twice the normal rate.
As with any fresh breakout, this stock needs to be closely monitored.
A pullback into the previous base (the highs $17.50) would be the first concern, especially if those declines are coupled with an increase in volume.
Support below there is offered by the 50-day moving average, which is currently at $16.72 and -6.5% below Friday’s close.
From there we have the previous lows for support at $16.

James’ Personal Portfolio Service:
PLUS: THE SUNDAY STOCK REPORT & BUYINGBREAKOUTS.COM
With this new service, I give my specific BUY, HOLD, SELL, SHORT, and COVER calls on select high-ranked leaders.
This new service is in addition to the stock selections which I currently manage at two websites – SundayStockReport.com and BuyingBreakOuts.com. I also run a private coaching service, and additionally work with individuals who are looking for particular trading ideas which may not fit into either of the two aforementioned website’s strategies.
James Taulman’s Personal Portfolio Service is designed to take only what I see as the most sound stock selections from all of the services which I currently offer. I present these stocks with specific buy points on a combined watch list (emailed daily), and not only do I alert members as to when a stock is a buy, but also when it is a sell. Shorting opportunities are also featured. This new service is basically how I use the information which I have available to me, to trade a personal brokerage account.
Each market morning Personal Portfolio Members receive my Stock WatchList & Portfolio Update report via email. It includes a brief market commentary, my watch list for the day, and updates with charts on all the stocks in the portfolio.
When a stock from my personal watch list become a BUY members receive one of my BUY: TradeTicket Alerts. When a stock from the portfolio should be sold, they receive a SELL: TradeTicket Alert. Same goes for shorts.
A membership to James Taulman’s Personal Portfolio Service also includes ongoing access to both the SundayStockReport.com and BuyingBreakOuts.com websites.
NOTE: All Sunday Stock Report or BuyingBreakOuts Members can use their current membership as a credit towards this new service.
Please see the bottom of the page for those instructions.

For Current Sunday Stock Report or BuyingBreakOuts Members:
Here is how you can upgrade to this all-inclusive Personal Portfolio Membership and get the very valuable additional help which many have requested.
Sign up for James Taulman’s Personal Portfolio Service at the link above.
Choose either the $99 a month option or the $987 a year option.
Once we receive your information and your chosen term, we will then upgrade and credit your account.
For example, if you purchased a 1 year subscription for The Sunday Stock Report at $349, two months ago, you have 10 months credit ($290). Right? That credit will be applied, starting with your second month of the new portfolio service. So, in this example if you choose the $99 a month, you pay for the first month, then there would be no charge for the next three months for this new all-inclusive service.
If you choose the 1 year option, (first off you save $200) and then once we calculate your Sunday Stock Report and/or Buying BreakOuts credit, you will receive a refund for the difference. ($987 – REMAINING MONTHS = CREDIT BACK TO YOUR CARD)
Plus, if you try the new Personal Portfolio Service for 30 days and you are not happy, we will reset your current Sunday Stock Report and/or Buying BreakOuts membership as it was. So you do not risk losing your current membership terms or any months.
You will start receiving my new reports via email each market morning.
As always, if anyone has any questions – please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as I would be glad to assist you.
