Strictly on technicals, I am picking these stocks for long and short positions:
Short: ALJ, CTAS, RSH, APOL, STT, ATHR, CHH, DISH, CVS, BAX
Long: REP, JOSB, PXD, ARTC, BVN, ACAS
Pairs: REP/PXD, ALJ; ACAS, STT
Note: STT is on SEC list of protected short stocks.
The strategy has not been backtested and I make no assurances of performance. You use these recommendations purely at your own risk.
Any sane person would want to have been on the opposite side of almost every one of those trades. The longs were consistently way off and the shorts would have lost money, too.
