ya, as a group up only eighty cents today, but yes off their record highs, geesh. well adsk never pulled back at all. As a group of 5, off all time highs or lows, except opk, they had a big 1.5% correction. You should go read more long/short internet posts to figure out your next move.
Did you actually look at the 5 stocks. cliffs, k, bmo, opk and auto desk? Of those how many are within 10% of a multi year high? As soon as you hit a series of highs, you have a head, as you consolidate you get a shoulder. If you put k in a chart and compare it to it's sector, oops, all have a near identical chart, basing near a year high. So obviously those can pull back a little, and a weak market can help. The entire market has basically formed one head and shoulders pattern in succession but ramped to new highs. Cliffs on the other hand hand a true H&S back in 2011 and has cratered ever since, and looks like the selling is about over at 20. Opko is the out lier of the group, broke out of a TWO YEAR base to move from 4-5, to 6-7 range. It too is near it's high more or less, but is an arbitrage play with the pbth deal on the table. The uptrend is in tack, and will gain a degree of traction post merger. In the 5 chart group BMO a Canadian bank has been the best performing Canadian bank 1-2 and 5 years, and that too has stumbled from it's high. If the market heads up, that will lead all Canadian bank stocks if the market weakens, BMO will drop the least.
Seems the author picked names out of thin air when you could just as easily picked any stock in those respective sectors. Without taking the time to check each chart, and comparing those charts to their respective peer groups, one might come away thinking, OH wow, this guy sees something that is UNIQUE to these five stocks, when in fact, this pattern is standard fare when markets hit new highs.
