Hi <>,

"All Hands, Man Your Battle Stations!"



FROM: "All Hands, Man Your Battle Stations!"

Stocks rise until they meet resistance then reverse until they find support.

Cisco Systems (CSCO):

MarketClub's Trade Triangle Technology algorithm currently ranks CSCO Primary (monthly) Trend 'UP'.

Week ending 1/2 CSCO closed 27.61 (Yield: 2.68%).

CSCO is not currently in the 10 highest yielding DJ-30 'Dow Dogs'.

CSCO is not currently among the 'Dow Small Dogs'.

Key primary support algo to watch: 10/15 low 22.49 (lowest low - last 3 mo).

CSCO recent resistance algo to watch: 12/24 high 28.59 (highest high - last 3 wks).

NOTE: IF the 12/24 high 28.59 also turns out to be the pivot point high on the weekly chart, a reasonable (IMO) downside target would be 25.66.

NOTE: IF the 12/24 high 28.59 also turns out to be the pivot point high on the monthly chart, a reasonable (IMO) downside target would be 25.00.

CSCO has currently found resistance (IMO).

CSCO currently above both the 50 & 200 sma on the daily chart (Favorable).

Next Qtr Est Avg EPS: 0.51. Est High EPS: 0.54. Est Low EPS: 0.50. Prior Qtr EPS: 0.35.

The combination of low price/high yield + support at the 50 & 200 sma (weekly charts) = opportunity in the intermediate term (IMO).

Whether you buy stock, protect with puts (& collect dividends) or buy calls, puts or do debit/credit spreads or "combo's" (whatever suits your style), a limited risk/high reward position can be constructed.

Each strategy has its own follow-up tactics, depending on how it plays out.

NOTE: CSCO is deeply involved in cyber security; we are constantly under attack.
