I'm Taking Profits Today
Thu, Jun 14, 2018

This stock has basically gone straight up in the few weeks since my post on Thu, May 24, 2018.

This $9 gain is a 7% return.

That's ok, but what if it continues to run up to $150 or higher?

Selling is just as important as buying.

Because I don't have a crystal ball, I have to make a decision based on information available today.

This stock has had a 17% upside move since earnings.

In my opinion, quick moves like this on large companies tend to eventually stall or retrace.

So there may be an opportunity to "buy the dip" in the future.

Also, there are a few other companies on Symbol Surfing that look good.

Or maybe I don't jump into something else.

There's nothing wrong with cash.

Thu, Jun 14, 2018 ADP @ $139.82

Boring Winners
Wed, May 23, 2018

Automatic Data Processing, Inc. or ADP, quietly hit a new all-time high again today.

Not only is this a great stock, but also ADP is a very important company to the stock market.

As you know, one of the major macroeconomic factors is the unemployment rate.

A couple of others are economic output and inflation.

If you have trouble falling asleep, take a deep dive into any of the topics.

Sleep tight!

Ok, back to ADP.

Because it is arguably the largest payroll company in the United States, ADP definitely knows what is happening regarding employment, wages and more.

In fact, they publish quite a bit of this information.

https://www.adpemploymentreport.com

You most likely have seen this data mentioned on CNBC.

In my opinion, ADP is a great "buy and hold" stock and it pays a 2% dividend.

It is actually one of the Dividend Aristocrats.

For a shorter term trade, I have another idea that has worked for me a few times.

I am sure there is an official name for this, but I sometimes refer to it as the Weather Balloon strategy.

Using weather balloons scientists can plot out weather conditions for days in advance.

In this situation with ADP, I look for other companies in the same industry that could be poised to move higher as well.

It's like the saying "A rising tide lifts all boats."

So the other company that usually shadows ADP's stock price is...PAYX.

Paychex hit a record high at around $73 a few months ago on January 23, 2018.

Since then it has retraced down to about $60 and rallied up to $65.

I like PAYX here at $65.

If it moves from $65 back up to $73, that is a 12% return.

Also, PAYX pays a higher dividend of 3.4%.
