   The TTD report also contains stocks to short as  breakdown plays and as bargain (swing trade) shorts.

  Investors should  tend to try to go with a strategy that fits with the stock market's trend, unless there is a special situation play.

  TTD's Breakout Stocks - Long are most suitable for aggressive investors seeking ideal entry points into leading stocks, especially during bull markets. They can do extremely well in bull markets with gains of as much as several hundred percent.

 These stocks can also do extremely well during strong market rallies, or if they are in a industry group that is performing very well. They tend to have strong earnings outlooks and are near new-52 week, or all-time highs.

  TTD Swing - Quick Trade Stocks - Long These are leading issues that have pulled back in recent days, but could move higher soon. They are most suitable for Aggressive Investors willing to trade short term. These stocks will do extremely well during market advances. They have about 74% win rate. During market rally sequences the win rate is even higher. The return is small 3% to 8% in just a few days.

   TTD also presents Stocks To Sell or Sell Short. These issues are suitable for aggressive investors willing to take short positions both as trades or for longer-term plays. These stocks will do very well during bear markets or market pull backs.

  TTD's Bearish breakdown stocks to sell short. These issues have potential to fall sharply. They often show a technical breakdown and also some fundamental business problem such as weak earnings.  

 TTD's multi-media updates include a slide-show that presents charts and analysis at midsession. Some times TTD presents feature analysis on stocks and the market. TTD uses Windows Media Files. (WMV).

 TTD also presents a "Breakout Watch List" that is up dated daily. This list consists of key stocks in position to breakout. A close watch of this list can put you in the stock just as it breaks out. A good idea is to study the list and be ready to move into a stock quickly as it hits its breakpoint.

TTD often suggests using stop buy orders to enter. It is very important to buy a breakout stock as close as possible to the breakpoint. The idea is to get "elbow room" if the stock should follow through to the upside. This is very important in being successful in making big money with breakout stocks.

It is also essential to have a stop loss strategy for all stocks in which positions are taken. Not every stock will work as expected. It is important for investors to "police" their portfolios and avoid getting trapped in any bad positions.

 Quality rating of breakout  Two key factors: 1 - Stock near all-time high in price or near a 52-week high. 2 - earnings growth current year is strong. The ideal play is a stock with an Above Average Quality Rating. The stock is near a new high and will have strong earnings. TTD's other ratings are Average and Below Average.

Timely Breakout Stocks From Tape Action

(The “breakout List” gives all stocks breaking out of a base of five weeks or more. These stocks have a good chance to trend higher. However, a stop should be used to avoid those that do not work.

They are ranked according to percentage change and classified as leaders or other.

(Trading strategy: One should buy breakout stocks near breakpoint by using market order or stop buy.  They can also be bought soon after a follow through move, sometimes on an intraday pullback.

Friday - Breakouts 


Today's Featured TTD Stock

CF Industries Holdings Inc. (CF) - 66, up 1.70 - Breakpoint 230.89

Net To Rise 143% for 2021, TTD Targets 80

      TTD's Quality Rating of Stock - CF - Average

    CF, based in Deerfield, Il., makes several fertilizer products. Annual revenues: $4.1 billion. CF's stock moves higher Friday and now is close to possible reemerging from cup-and-handle base.

  So far today, CF is trading 7.2 million shares, double its average daily volume of 2.6 million shares.

  TTD sees chances for more on the upside. However, one needs to be very watchful since the stock market is under selling pressure.

 CF's stock moved higher in the morning and cleared some prior upside resistance. .

  The stock reached an intraday high of $67.13 around noon.

  It then trended sideways the rest of the day.

  In after-hours trading, CF was down 20 cents a share.

     Tape Action

  CF's tape action shows the recent block trades.

  One can see the price for the blocks climbing from $64.23 in the morning to as high as $66.50 in after hours trading when some big buying came in

  A key bullish trade came in after-hours when a block of 1,966,833 shares crossed at $66.50.

  That was up from the prior block at $66 on 317,883 shares. .

  That would indicate some big accumulation.


 CF makes hydrogen and nitrogen products for clean energy, fertilizer and emissions abatement.

 The company operates nitrogen manufacturing complexes in the U.S., Canada and U.K.

 CF’s primary nitrogen products are ammonia, granular urea, urea ammonium nitrate solution and ammonium nitrate.

  Its core product is anhydrous ammonia (ammonia), which contains 82% nitrogen and 18% hydrogen.

 Its other nitrogen products include diesel exhaust fluid, urea liquor, nitric acid and aqua ammonia, which are sold primarily to its industrial customers, and compound fertilizer products.


  CF's 12-month performance chart shows the stock up 50% versus a 17% gain for the stock market.

  Insiders were recent buyers at $30.95 to $51.17 using stock options.

  They were sellers at $58 to $70 a share..

  CF's long-term chart shows the stock rising from $20.77 in 2016 to a peak at $56 in 2018.

  The stock then fell back to $20 in 2020. Since then, CF has surged back $74, and now has backed off. .

  CF's daily chart shows the stock climbing from $45 in August to a peak at $74 in December

  It had broke out from a base at $66.38.

 The stock has now been pulled back to its prior breakpoint.

 The gain Friday may indicate it has potential to move higher in coming days.

  The CCI momentum indicator is in a position to possibly turn up.

  However, the stock needs to be watched closely.

Earnings Outlook

  For 2021, analysts predict a 144%  surge in net to $3.58 a share from the $1.47 the prior year.

  The stock has a price-earnings ratio of 18. That is attractive for value-growth investors.

  Looking out to 2022, the Street projects a 246% leap in net to $12.40 a share from the anticipated $3.58 for 2021..

  Quarterly net will be very strong.

  Net for the fourth quarter should spurt 662% to $3.05 a share from the 40 cents the prior year.

  The highest estimate is at $3.69 a share.

  Profits for the first quarter should jump 413%  to $3.59 a share from the 70 cents the year before.

Strategy Opinion: TTD is targeting CF for a move to $80 within the next few months, or sooner.

A protective stop can be placed near $62.

Intermediate-Term Rating: Above Average.

Suitability:   Aggressive Bulls.
