| ---BIOTECH STOCK BOOM IN SAN
A Report on San Diego Stocks' Performance
9/5/2005 - William Schmidt, Ph.D.
A key point leaps out to investors when looking at the data
showing the stock performance of San Diego stocks since
last Thanksgiving. It is the emergence of San Diego as the
heart of an emerging biotech boom.
42 of the 106 San Diego stocks studied here rose more than 20%
over the last 10 months, since 11/17/2004. In this elite group,
Biomedical stocks far outnumbered the tech stocks. Nationally, the
BioTech Index (BBH) shown below has far outsurpassed the NASDAQ
this year. Note the excellent automatic Buy signals on the BBH by the Tiger
chart. By comparison the SP-500 rose just 3% in this period and the
NASDAQ only 2%.
Investors will want to search through these stocks for those that stand
out and are apt to be future leaders. Those with TigerSoft Internal Strength
"Power-Rankings" over 75% are most apt to be superior performers over
the next six months. The companies with fast rising stocks supported by
good internal technical readings are the most likely to be expanding
operations, doing new hiring and increasing shareholder value.
What you are seeing:
The TigerSoft charts show red Buy and Sell Arrows. These represent the
buy and sell points using the best trading system from over 50 good ones
for the past year. At the top of each chart, you can see what the return
would have been had one bought, sold and sold short these stocks on
each reversing Red arrow. Additional major Buys are also show. The internal
strength indicators displayed are OBV (a measure of aggresive buying),
Tiger Accumulation Index (the best measure we know of Big Money
Buying) and ITRS (Intermediate-Term Relative Strength.
See recent report in Forbes magazine on San Diego's special position as
a biotech leader.
