How to Protect your Wealth by Investing in AI Tech Stocks

AI Tech Stocks Buying Levels and EC Indicator Explained

Companies / Investing 2020 Dec 26, 2020 - 07:20 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Companies

My last look at AI stocks buying levels early September had some of the must own AI stocks trading at ridiculously high valuations for instance Amazon was trading on an EC of 148 against a target maximum of 100! Which prompted me to HIT the SELL button on over 50% of my holdings despite the promise of huge gains in revenues as the pandemic sales and profits came in.


Firstly what are buying levels?

Buying levels are high probability technical levels that a stock 'could' trade down to during a correction i.e. it's an achievable technical chart level that could be used to for instance to put in buy limit orders at just above the buying level if one is looking to accumulate more stock in any particular company i.e. the Buying Level for Google (Alphabet) was $1395, so a limit order at $1395 or higher would be the objective depending on how eager one is to gain exposure to the stock i.e. If I really wanted to buy more Google then the limit order would be OVER $1400 as stocks tend to find support at round numbers.

Stocks Expensive or Cheap Indicator (EC)

This basically condenses down some 12 financial indicators I track for most stocks to determine if they are expensive or cheap (EC), as stock prices are usually not a good indicator of value.

At it's most basic the higher the number the more expensive a stock is and conversely the lower the number the cheaper a stock is. Where a reading of 20-60 tends to be the sweet spot for most AI stocks as it implies earnings growth coupled with sustainable speculative interest and thus results in good trending charts with support during corrections, where value tends to be fair so as to enable one to accumulate stock.

Whilst readings above 60 increasingly indicate high levels of speculative interest in future earnings growth. However, this does not automatically mean that a stock trading over 60 should not be bought or sold, it just means that there is a lot of speculative interest in that stock so expect greater price volatility as investors are more likely to react to news events. So I would still invest in a stocks trading over 60 if they have a good reason to justify such speculative interest i.e. such as AMD and Nvidia as being higher risk stocks. Or Amazon of a say 6 months ago that was set to greatly profit from covid-19 lockdown's.

Over 100 is where stocks are becoming a bit to hot to handle where holding let alone buying depends on understanding what's in the pipeline, what it is driving the stocks into the stratospheric valuations such as AMD first killing Intel and now giving Nvidia a run for it's money. Whilst there will be some such as Amazon, I can't quite fathom the high valuation hence reduce my exposure to.

Whilst readings Under 20 suggests little speculative interest to drive stock prices significantly higher, so likely to expect trading ranges and thus tend to be sleeping giants in the AI mega-trend. Also could be signaling problems with the stocks i.e. such as Intel losing the CPU war to AMD which has has made Intel a disliked stock to hold whilst AMD has been heavily bid up into fever making it an expensive buy.
