Ideas, Updates & Analysis


Ther financials were some of the biggest percentage losers today.

I decided to scan the financials sector stocks to see if I could find any buying opportunities.

From there I clicked on insurance industry stocks.

There are many familiar names in this list like Aflac, Allstate, Progressive.

The progressive commercials are fantastic.

The one stock chart that really looked the best to me was Travelers (TRV).

The price over the 5 years moved upwards in a relatively small trading range for a nice 50% return plus dividends.

The stock price stayed very close to the moving averages.

If you look at the image closely, you'll see this is about the 6th time the stock price has dropped below both moving averages.

Each time, the stock price rallied up to and through both moving averages.

The current stock price is in that position again below both moving averages.

It looks good here, but if the price drops to $120, I am definitely buying.

Based on the chart history, it should move up to $140.


Tue, May 29, 2018 TRV @ $128.21

Tue, May 29, 2018 AFL @ $44.57

Tue, May 29, 2018 ALL @ $94.24
