There are plenty of semiconductor stocks worth considering at the time of this writing (February 2012).

Why do people keep asking about the WRONG semiconductor stocks to own now?

If you have been a reader of this site, you know we employ point and figure charting to analyze the stock market, analyze mutual funds and exchange traded funds (ETF’s). But another tool we include in our analysis is relative strength. And by combining point and figure trend charts with relative strength charts, we can see there are clearly some semiconductor company shares we would prefer to own, and some semiconductor we would probably pass on.

However, before we begin the ANALYSIS of these charts, we need to mention two other important points at this time:
1. This video (and this blog post) is NOT a recommendation to buy or sell any of the securities mentioned here.
2. None of the securities mentioned in this video (or in this post) represent past specific recommendations of Mullooly Asset Management.

In this short video, we analyze two semiconductor stocks we have been asked about recently, and also share a relative strength matrix (from Dorsey Wright & Associates) which stacks all the names in a sector from top to bottom based on relative strength (as of February 6, 2012). This video will be well worth your time.

I would also add the following:
Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Therefore, no current or prospective client should assume that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy will be profitable or equal to past performance levels.

All investment strategies have the potential for profit or loss. Changes in investment strategies, contributions, or withdrawals may materially alter the performance of your portfolio. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for an investor’s portfolio.

If you are relying on a blog post for specific investment advice, you are making a huge mistake. Please speak with an investment adviser before making ANY investment decisions.
If you do not have an investment adviser, we encourage you to contact Mullooly Asset Management at 732-223-9000, or through our website. Under no circumstances should the content discussed here to be considered specific investment advice.
