Shares: K, MDSO and MPW

Kellogg Co. (K)

Medidata Solutions Inc. (MDSO)

Medical Properties Trust Inc. (MPW)

I have entered earnings plays using shares on three symbols, all for projected exit by Feb. 7 at the latest.

I exited MPW on Jan. 29 and MDSO on Jan. 30 on Fisher Transform reversals downward amid a general decline in the stock markets.

K turned down on Feb. 1, along with much of the broader market, triggering a downtrend signal on the Fisher Transformer. I exited for a minuscule profit.

MDSO 70.00 70.07 0.1% 7.3% 1/25 1/30
