Outcomes: I’ve posted no analyses and placed no trades today.

None of the potential prospects has improved enough for trading, and I exited my shorter-term holdings on Wednesday, so there’s nothing on the agenda today.

The potentials, all earnings plays using shares, fail on their¬†Zacks¬†metrics: TECD, THO and POETF on the earnings surprise predictor. CNTE and ROYT have an ambiguity about when they’re publishing earnings, as well as having earnings surprise predictors that don’t support my strategy.

Financial markets in the United States will be closed on Thursday for the Thanksgiving Day holiday.

They will reopen on Friday. However, I have no prospective new positions for action on that day, a not unexpected condition for the day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday, the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
