    Dr. Market Edge Answers Your Questions


  • The recent rise of the market is pushing stocks very close to their 52-week high in my watch and buy lists. The majority are 3% below their 52-week high and no stocks more than 15% below their 52 week high. How can I use Market Edge to find value stocks in this highly valued market?

  • I have a question regarding stocks with Upgraded Opinions to "Long" and "Early Entry Longs". More often than not the opinion says that they are overbought and to wait for a pullback before buying. It seems to me that the increase in price and volume is the catalyst for the upgrade.

    1. Is the Second Opinion performance on the Home Page from a pulled back entry price or is it based on the price when the stock is upgraded to Long whether it is overbought or not?

    2. Is it really necessary to wait for a pull back? I have been examining the charts of a lot of stocks that have a Long Opinion relative to when the opinion was formed. It is clear that many of these stocks were overbought when the opinion was formed but did not have a meaningful pullback for some time after the upgrade.
