   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 Swng - 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. )  

Today's Featured TTD Breakout Stock

Carriage Services Inc. (CSV) - 39.48, up 0.78 - Breakpoint 39.37

Net To Climb 43% This Year, TTD Targets 46

      TTD's Quality Rating of Stock - CSV  - AVERAGE

  CSV, based in Houston, provides funeral services. Annual revenues: $329 million. CSV's stock moves higher Thursday and breaks out from its two-month, cup-and-handle base.

  So far today, CSV is trading 262,545 shares, triple its average daily volume of 75,000 shares.

  TTD sees potential for more on the upside.

  CSV has a beta of 0.83 versus 1.00 for the stock market. So, the stock tends to be a slow mover. One must be patient.

  CSV's stock moved higher in the morning and cleared its breakpoint line.

  The stock reached an intraday high in the morning at $39.87.

  The stock then pulled back slightly and trended sideways the rest of the day.

  CSV was unchanged in after-hours trading.

    Tape Action

  CSV's tape action shows the recent block trades.

  One can see the price for the blocks rising from $38.70 in the prior session to as high as $39.58 in the afternoon.

  A key bullish trade came in the morning when a block of 1,000 shares crossed the tape at $39.26.

  That was up from the prior block at $38.70 on 8,642 shares.

  Near the close a massive block of 126,600 shares crossed at $39.48.

  That came on a sequence started by a down tick from $39.50 on 229 shares.


CSI provide  death care services in the U.S.

The company operates in two areas: Funeral home operations and cemetery operations.

The funeral homes provide funeral services - traditional burial and cremation - and sells related merchandise, such as caskets and urns.

  Its cemetery products cover interment services, the rights to interment in cemetery sites and related cemetery merchandise, such as memorials and vaults. It serves suburban and rural markets.

The company operates 183 funeral homes in 29 states and 29 cemeteries in 11 states.


  CSV's 12-month performance chart shows the stock up 70% versus a 35% gain for the stock market.

  Insiders were recent buyers at $36.98  to $38.19 in the open market and at $5.94 to $20.06 using stock options.

  They were sellers at $34 to $36 a share.

  CSV's long-term chart shows the stock falling from $27 back in 2016 to $14.50 by late 2018.

  The stock rallied back to $25 but then fell back again. This time to $13.54 due to the stock market drop.

  Since then CSV has rallied strongly to $39.

  CSV's daily chart shows the stock peaking near $39 in May. It has since fallen back to 34 and then rallied.

  The breakout clears key resistance with a big pick up in volume. That is very bullish.

  The stock's CCI momentum indicator is strongly bullish.

   Earnings Outlook

  This year, analysts predict a 43% jump in CSV's earnings to $2.66 a share from the $1.86 the prior year.

  The stock has a price-earnings ratio of 14. That is attractive for value-growth investors.

  Looking out to 2022, the Street predicts a 12% rise in net to $2.99 a share from the anticipated $2.66 this year.

  Net for the third quarter should be up 16% to 59 cents a share from the 51 cents the prior year.

  The highest estimate is at 60 cents a share.

  CSV topped the consensus estimate the past four quarters by 14 cents a share, 22 cents, 4 cents and 20 cents.

  Looking out to the fourth quarter, net should rise 12% to 64 cents a share from the 57 cents the previous year.

Strategy Opinion:  TTD is targeting CSV for a move to $46 within the next few months, or sooner.

A protective stop can be placed near $37.90
