A rise in implied volatility in stocks is not a welcome aspect by stock investors. Some stock traders may say that they like a rise in implied volatility, but they may not necessarily appreciate that a rise in volatility can also involve price swings that can take their stop losses, and overnight stock gaps as it often arises in major earnings announcement, test trials in biotech stocks, and some yet unknown reason which may cause stock option buyers to bid up option premiums.

Special Margin Stocks

It would not be surprising if buying and/or selling securities such as stocks, bonds, and stock options (when selling option premium) is one of the least appreciated and/or less understood concepts in the financial markets in general, and the stock market in particular.

In the securities and exchange comments, they ask stock traders and investors some key questions:

"
*

Do you know that margin accounts involve a great deal more risk than cash accounts where you fully pay for the securities you purchase? Are you aware you may lose more than the amount of money you initially invested when buying on margin? Can you afford to lose more money than the amount you have invested?
*

Did you take the time to read the margin agreement? Did you ask your broker questions about how a margin account works and whether it's appropriate for you to trade on margin? Did your broker explain the terms and conditions of the margin agreement?
*

Are you aware of the costs you will be charged on money you borrow from your firm and how these costs affect your overall return?
*

Are you aware that your brokerage firm can sell your securities without notice to you when you don't have sufficient equity in your margin account?

"

Stock brokers can also increase their margin requirement. They may reduce the collateral value of securities (which reduces marginability) for a variety of reasons, including:
* small market capitalization or small issue size
* low liquidity in the collective primary/secondary exchanges
* involvement in tenders and other corporate action

The list of reasons are not exhaustive, as a stock brokers states "may reduce the collateral value of securities (reduces marginability) for a variety of reasons, including:
* small market capitalization or small issue size
* low liquidity in the collective primary/secondary exchanges
* involvement in tenders and other corporate action

Changes in marginability are generally considered for a specific security. However, in cases of concerns about the viability or liquidity of a company, marginability reductions will apply to all securities issued by, or related to, the affected company, including bonds, derivatives, depository receipts, etc".

The point is that margins can change, and the changes can effect the financial portfolios of investors and traders.

Stock Market - The Top Cash-Rich Companies

Below is the list of companies with the highest cash. To obtain the cash per share of a stock has to divide the total number by the number of shares. The total cash is below but close to $500 billion.

$500 billion is roughly what 10 Million wage earners would earn for a salary of 50K per year. We would then not be surprised if the public were to ask something like : "how come the unemployment in the US is high then"? A CEO of public company would argue that the purpose of a company is to maximize the profit of the shareholder of its stock.


Apple Inc. AAPL $60 billion
Microsoft Corp. MSFT $41 billion
Cisco Systems Inc. CSCO $40 billion
Pfizer Inc. PFE $36 billion
Google Inc. GOOG $35 billion
General Electric Co. GE $30 billion
Johnson & Johnson JNJ $28 billion
General Motors Co. GM $27 billion
Intel Corp. INTC $24 billion
Oracle Corp. ORCL $24 billion
Ford Motor Co. F $22 billion
Amgen Inc. AMGN $17 billion
Boeing Co. BA $16 billion
Dell Inc. DELL $14 billion
Chevron Corp. CVX $14 billion
Merck & Co. Inc. MRK $14 billion
IBM IBM $12 billion
ConocoPhillips COP $12 billion
Coca-Cola Co. KO $11 billion
Bristol-Myers Squibb BMY $10 billion

As per recent weighting in the investors publications posted on the website of the QQQ ETF trust. Amazon (AMZN ) and Apple (AAPL) constitute approximately more than 15% of the nasdaq-100 stock index. The outlook of the earnings and the stock prices of these two companies can then have a non-negligeable impact on the overall Nasdaq-100 stocks index.

In the earnings announcement of Amazon, amazon.com expects (for the third quarter 2011) net sales to be between $10.3 billion and $11.1 billion and operating profit to be between $20 million and $170 million. The latter number is significantly lower than the $309 million (which was the expected average for the third quarter of 2011).

We note that in its most recent earnings announcement, Apple (AAPL) gave $5.5 as an estimate for Q3 earnings, which is lower than Q2 earnings.

With lower margins for Amazon (AMZN), and a lower guidance from AAPL, it is not unreasonable to expect a rise in potential risk.

It would be interesting to monitor the overall reaction of institutional investors once these earning reports have been digested over the next few days and weeks. We would keep an eye on the institutional ownership in these two major stocks.

Solar stocks, Energy stocks, and the Price of Oil:

The stock chart below depicts the ratio of a solar stocks ETF stock(Symbol KWT), and an oil ETF stock (Symbol USO). First, the price chart suggests that solar stocks may have been under performing the oil price (and consequently possibly under performing other energy stock sectors). Furthermore, the chart shows that the ratio of KWT to USO has recently visit the area of the about 2.5years bottom reached back at the end of the stock market trading year of 2008/(beginning of stock market trading year of 2009). The price of oil is higher today than it was during the bottom of around 2.5 years ago. Therefore, was the recent price rise in solar stocks then a reflection of possible adjustments in relative value of solar stocks to oil prices given that oil and oil stocks have been recently rising?

Below is a list of stocks that may be part of the KWT stocks (organized in decreasing order of weights as of the time the website of the concerned financial institution containing the information was visited).

Nasdaq 100 Stocks List

Nasdaq 100 Stocks List: One of the common investing and trading questions stock market participants seek an answer to are the list of stocks in stock market indices (and in EFT stocks). Below is the list of stocks in the Nasdaq 100 index. Stock lists for other indices are forthcoming.

The stock list is organized in alphabetical order by company name. We note that the Nasdaq 100 stock weighting may depend on the price of the stocks, and the stock is therefore not included here. We plan to add the stock weighting in a separate post because stock prices change over time, and therefore affect the stock weights in the index in percentage terms.

Stock investing and stock trading:

According to the Economist print edition of yesterday July 21, 2001, the 3-month interest rate in China is 5.96%, while the yield of the 10-year government bonds is 4.11%. This indicates that the yield curve is inverted, which may be reflecting a shortage of longer-dated debt and confidence policy makers would curb inflation.

Inverted curves are notorious for anticipating down turns in the economy and in the stock market in the concerned country. The China stock market could then be facing a stock market price retreat. The stocks in the list below are China stocks, and are trading below their 200-day moving average. An inverted yield curve, and stock trading price below a 200-day moving average, may be not good signs for a stock.

Among common asked by financial market followers in general, and the stock market participants in particular is a question related to the dynamics of the stock market price formulated in a number of ways such as this: why did the stock market rise today (or why the stock market fell today)? A common (and incorrect) answer is that the demand was higher than the offer of stock, which is inconsistent with the fact that for each buyer there is a seller, and vice-versa.

Stock market follow an auction process. Let us assume that there is a trade at each price increment (we however note that prices do not need filled trades to rise as discussed below). The stock market price rises when the offer trades out and goes bid, that requires more buying than selling at the price where the offer was available. The same can be said for the next offer, "ad infinitum", as price rises.

The stock traders and investors who think of the price behavior along the lines of the above mentioned misconception might confuse the demand for stocks at a given price, with filled trades. In fact, filled trades are not a requirement for a stock market price to change. One could see it in a less liquid stock, but it may be better understood if look at in the context of a regular non stock market auction, where no trades take place until the final bid, yet the price of a non-stock-market auction changes many times as it goes up.

There are important consequences to the above observations, as related to the analysis of stock market buying and selling. At any give day, if the stock market price is rising, the notable price where the stock market demand has last exceeded the stock market offer the day before is the price low of the previous day. This might be a reason why stock market experts would usually suggest in the financial literature to their readers to pay attention to the low price of the precious day in a rising stock market. A similar analysis can be extended to a stock market in a retreating price trend.

We will discuss other consequences of the above observations in relation to the analysis of stock market reversals, and why daily lows and daily highs can be important in the analysis of the stock market demand and offer, and their interaction.

It might be be useful to apply the above observation to some liquid stocks(both rising stocks and declining stocks). Below is a list of stocks that may be useful in doing the exercise.

According to the powershare QQQ (TM) financial site (as of July 19, 2011) the weighting of the stocks in the nasdaq-100 QQQ ETF stock are as listed below. The Amazon stock (AMNZ) and apple stock (AAPL) are among the top stocks in the list in terms of weightings, with a combined weighting of more than 15%, which can make the nasdaq 100 EFT stock (QQQ) sensitive to the performance of these two stocks.

One issue that seems to have been less highlighted in the financial press in yesterday's earnings report of Apple (AAPL) stock is Apple's lower guidance for the fourth quarter, estimated to be around $5.5 (lower than the current quarter earning). This does not sound as a good news for a growth stock. In addition, unlike apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN) has margins in the lower single digits, which combined with a price to earning ratio around 100, might make financial observers pay particular attention to the guidance of Amazon at their coming earnings report.

It was then not surprising to see Apple stock and the Amazon stock price finish their trading session in the lower part of their daily trading range.

During last weekend (two days ago) we published the stock market analysis article attached below. The market has risen since then, and the unusual stock market price action described below turned out to be bullish. If the stock market rises further, it would have to face a possible test at the 52 week highs, which would be a stock market price-area where bears would test the bulls. The Nasdaq-100 was leader in today rally. In the after hours trading session, it traded around $59.12 after apple earning announcement, while it was trading at around $57 less than 24 hours ago. The 52 week high of the Nasdaq-100 stock EFT is around 59.40 area. This is a difficult and risky stock market for both the bulls and the bears.

A copy of the stock market post mentioned above follows:
(http://www.marketwarnings.com/2011/07/unusual-price-action-in-stock-market.html)


During each of the first four trading days of the past week, the S&P 500 Stock market index price has closed more than 1% below its day trading price high, and yet the stock market closed higher on Friday and its weekly price did not change significantly to the down side. The above mentioned four trading days streak is unusual in the sense that it has not occurred since few days before the date of the March 2009 stock market bottom.

The stock market price rise on Friday (in conjunction with the above mentioned unusual price action) might constitute a warning for stock market bears in the coming few trading days. It may also constitute a warning for longer term stock market bulls if the stock market were to rise in the nearer future as one may not exclude the reappearance of stock market selling as witnessed last week, particularly if the stock market resilience to the selling pressure were to have been mainly due to bears (who may have shorted the stock rally that started three weeks earlier) who may have used the retreat to buy back.

Following is a list of relatively liquid stocks that have traded above their 200-day moving average price during the last trading session (of Friday) on volume of 750K shares and higher. The stock list is organized in increasing order of price to earnings ratio.

Currency and Forex Markets, and Gold Commodity Trading:

On the eve of the trading session of Monday, the Swiss Franc has trading weaker against the major currencies (The US dollar, the Yen, and the euro)---It has weakening even against the British Pound.

In general, the Swiss Franc is positively correlated to the price of Gold. While Gold has been trading higher during the overnight session, a continued weakness in the Swiss Franc might turn out to be an early warning if the price of Gold were to stop its rise and possibly retreat or trade in range bound. Gold is currently trading in the 1601 area, and it would not be surprising if a selling pressure were to develop in the range of 1601 to 1616 (which is less than 1% higher). We however note that the correlation between Gold and the Swiss Franc, although positive, is not strong. Gold stock prices are significantly influenced by the price of Gold.
(A list of Gold stocks is included below).

It would be interesting to see how the price of the GLD Gold EFT would behave if it were to trade below the low of last Friday (assuming that Friday daily high price is not breached earlier in the trading session) where stops could be placed by gold trading profit takers.

The gold stocks below are sorted in decreasing order of market capitalization.
