Two Stocks Emerging From Long Bases

Lions Gate (LGF.B) and Potash (POT) are two stocks that are trying to emerge from bases. I'm always intrigued by bases because typically a prolonged period of contraction leads to an extended period of expansion. We have covered bases extensively here (SEE BELOW) on the blog, and they are one if not my favorite set-up.

Stan Weinstein, the author of Secrets For Profiting In Bull and Bear Markets, has a great definition the "basing area," specifically the one's that are formed after several down months.

The Basing Area: "After XYZ has been declining for several months, it eventually will lose downside momentum and start to trend sideways. What's actually taking place is that buyers and sellers are starting to move into equilibrium, whereas previously the sellers were far stronger, which is why the stock had plummeted. Volume will usually lessen--dry up--as a base forms. But often volume will start to expand late stage 1, even though prices remain little changed. This is an indication that dumping of the stock by disgruntled owners is no longer driving down the price. The buyers who are moving in to take the stock off their hands are not demanding any significant price concession."

We live in a world in which we are bombarded with information, tweets, blogs, etc., content is the new salesman, content is the new marketing, content is the new networking. With information being so readily available, bloggers try to differentiate themselves with their writing skills, volume, and consistency, putting out blog posts to meet quotas. We are seeking to stand out from the crowd by showing performance, by taking all the information and seeking alpha, that’s the sole purpose of the blog. It won’t always be pretty; it’s never easy, and performance is spotty, but we seek superior risk-adjusted returns, not notoriety for our writing skills.  If this is something you can relate to, then this blog is for you.
