$AAPL, $AMZN, $IBM, $BIDU : 4 stocks above kumo

 

 

There are definitely more than 4 stocks that still looks bullish on the Ichimoku charts.

However, my favourites are :

 

 

 

 

I have chosen them for the following reasons:

1. They have cash.

2. They are market leaders within their segment

3. Pricing power and economies of scale.

4. Technically on the Ichimoku charts, they are still on top of the kumo support or above the kumo; which are bullish signs.

For $BIDU, we could easily substitute it with $GOOG. In my case, I want a proxy for the China market and in this case $GOOG fails the test.

Both $AAPL and $AMZN are extending their revenue beyond their core. In $AAPL case, the apps revenue and ads revenue will increasingly adds on and even be much more than its hardware sales.

In $AMZN, the cloud computing platform which they are offering will see increasing value as they target entreprise customers in the likes of brokerages etc.

Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO): Gappy Charts and Bearish

 

Reuters just reported that Cisco (CSCO) will have a sales miss for this quarter with more jobs cuts expected.

The key points to note for Cisco is as follows:

1. Cisco’s core businesses is UNDER THREAT.

  • On the low end, competitors comes in the form of Netgear (NTGR), despite the fact that it owns Linksys.
  • On the high end, there’s Huawei from China.

In other words, there is very little room for growth in its traditional stronghold.

2. Transitional Period

Much has been said about its transition. While Cisco is pretty much cash rich, with little debt, there is no guaranteed that the transition will see light.

Just not too long ago, the newly acquired FLIP was dumped.

Traditionally, Cisco is used to selling hardware (routers, switches etc). The transition may mean more services and that does requires a change in approach.

3. Ichimoku Chart for CISCO (CSCO)

Nonetheless, we can see from the Ichimoku chart above, CSCO has at least 4 gap down May 2010 when it break the kumo support.

The trend is clearly bearish. With more cost cutting expected, I won’t be surprised if it can touch $15 or even $12 if the overall market turns bad.
