Arch Capital: #PowerStocks Series Pick Of The Week (May 2024)

“Oh gosh, I’ve sold all my stocks earlier. And they’re soaring after my sale!”

That’s a conversation I overheard over dinner.

That person was referring to the popular saying, “Sell in May and go away” and was disappointed by it.

Wall Street has several cute sayings that you’ll want to dig deeper.

Since 2010, the S&P 500 has only been bearish in May for 4 out of 13 years — only 30% of the time.

On the contrary, the S&P 500 has been bullish 70% of the time in the past 13 years!

So, let’s uncover buying opportunities together.

Review Of Last Week’s Pick Of The Week

Qualcomm (QCOM) was shared last week.

It was also shared that we can reasonably expect its share price to fall to ~$175 and bounce higher before buying for a swing trading opportunity.

And this scenario played out last week, bringing you a gain of 3% (that’s if you caught this trade)!

As you ride this bullish burst happily, you may want to place a take-profit order at ~$188, as selling pressure could be strong at that price area.

If things go according to plan, you’ll enjoy a gain of ~6% in the days to come!

With that, let’s analyze this week’s swing trading opportunity: Arch Capital (ACGL).
