Important Note

Finally, I am pursuing new opportunities, and this will be the last issue of Momentum Trader Alert. Your publisher, Eagle Financial Publications, will update you with further information about how your subscription will be fulfilled. To protect your remaining positions but still benefit from additional share-price appreciation, I recommend that you set a 10% trailing stop on all positions, except for the following four:
Cigna Corp. (CI) — currently 4.70% above its stop price;
Verisign (VRSN) — currently 8.83% above its stop price;
Texas Instruments (TXN) — currently 4.86% above its stop price; and
Diageo plc (DEO) — currently 3.40% above its stop price

Remember that any related options positions should be sold once a stock hits or falls below its stop price.
