Investing Criteria

Rational assessment of businesses.
company is a cash-generating, industry-dominating, wealth-creating powerhouse — what we call a Rule Maker.
We’ve identified 11 general attributes of Rule-Making companies. Part 1 covers five qualitative aspects of a business. For each of these, the scoring is simple — 1 point if the attribute is met, 0 points if it’s not. Part 2 covers six financial criteria. Since these are more objective, each is worth 2 points if met, 0 points if not. Altogether, that’s 17 possible points. Got it? If so, pick a company to analyze and let’s get started!
*Note* Rule Maker analysis is primarily for companies with at least $1 Billion in annual sales.
Part 1: Evaluating the Biz Answer honestly! It’s either 100% yes, or else no.
1) Dominant Brand — Is the company the standout category king within its industry?
2) Repeat Purchases — Do customers return for purchase at least once a month?
3) Convenience — Within its industry, is the company’s product/service accessibility and convenience the best?
4) Expanding Possibilities — Can you answer “yes” to the following two questions?
a) Do your friends know about and use the product/service?
b) Is worldwide expansion believable for their stuff?
5) Your Familiarity & Interest — Are you a user of the company’s products or at least very familiar with them?
Part 2: Company Financials Fill in the cells outlined in blue. The spreadsheet will crunch the numbers.
*Important Note* — When evaluating quarterly (10-Q) results, use the year-to-date income statement data.
For example, if a company is 3/4 of the way through its fiscal year, use the full 9 months of info.

No Trades Wednesdays But Testing a New Swing Strategy

After looking at the market for a while I couldn’t find any trend that I like. Today, before market close I decided to place 2 swing trades; $XELA and $AAOI.

Let’s see what happens tomorrow morning or during the day.

This new strategy takes advantage of the low risk and bull trending stocks and the end of the day. There still going to be after hour traders reading the trends and potentially keep moving the stock higher.

7 Quality Dimensions

In order to improve data quality and maximise its insight potential, the Forrester report identifies seven quality dimensions that marketers should align their data across for best results:

  • Timeliness: Timely data comes from sources that are up to date. Access to faster data enables relevant insights that meet business objectives
  • Completeness: Complete data records are ones where all expected attributes are provided. A complete customer and marketing data set ensures that all behaviors, intentions, permissions, and sentiments are captured for robust analysis, such as understanding channel halo effects or how customers feel about your brand
  • Consistency: Consistent data references a common taxonomy across platforms, channels, and campaigns. Having consistent data for things like campaign codes and customer identifiers can help marketers speed up the data collection process and analyse trends over time, without worrying about data being labeled correctly
  • Relevance: Relevant data directly relates to the analysis being performed. Adding a slew of data into the system won’t help solve the business problem if it’s not relevant. Relevant data helps answer marketing business problems, address customer behavior questions, and make day-to-day decisions
  • Transparency: Transparent data refers to data whose sources are easy to trace and identify. Marketers who understand the data nuances from first-party and media sources, such as ad servers, will be able to determine if specific streams of data are necessary for their marketing performance analysis
  • Accuracy: The adage “garbage in, garbage out” has never been more relevant in today’s data-rich world. Only accurate data can reflect true actions
  • Representativeness: An important part of targeting, representativeness ensures data collected and leveraged for insights accurately reflects the marketplace or an advertiser’s target audience

$UGAZ is Ready to Sling Shoot

Hey HackerHipster, are you ready to sling shoot into that moving green SMA?

After hitting 52 week lowest point $UGAZ is readyt to boom back for winter. Winter is here.

The RSI is way oversold and the MACD is about to turn around to bullish. We are doing a red to green move here. I’m expecting to see at least $13 on $UGAZ in the next 2 weeks.

Basic Candle Pattern

Candlestick charts are a technical tool that pack data for multiple time frames into single price bars. This makes them more useful than traditional open-high, low-close bars (OHLC) or simple lines that connect the dots of closing prices. Candlesticks build patterns that predict price direction once completed. Proper color coding adds depth to this colorful technical tool, which dates back to 18th century Japanese rice traders.

Study these pattern to learn when to start looking at the potential resistance or support levels indicated by a retracement Fibonacci scale.

It wasn’t my first time, I have done this before. This time was different. My heart fell almost to the floor. Crypto is falling.

Back in 2017 I was one of those newbies who invested in bitcoin during the 20k bullrun. It felt magical. The math behind percentages and group psychology completily got my curious mind.

Yes, earlier in 2018 I realized it was too late to learn about market cycles and stop loss. Almost a year later I learned about shorting and then I realized … we all behave like waves.

Are we really mini waves that materialized at this micro levels of existance compare to the universe? We are the children of a big bang after all.
