Earnings season is in full swing, and we’ve seen some interesting results. The fallout from the 737 Max aircraft certainly hurt Boeing, but the results in the earnings reports weren’t quite as bad as Wall Street initially feared. On the other hand, Caterpillar badly missed Wall Street’s estimates, with the blame being placed on “global economic uncertainty.” Chipotle, by comparison, totally crushed estimates and plans to accelerate its drive-thru expansion plans. Other big names like Amazon, Microsoft, and Ford are expected to deliver their earnings reports this week.

Despite some mixed reports, the markets have been inching closer to all-time highs. This might tempt you to buy new positions. TradeSmith can help you find the potential best positions, and our latest Ideas by TradeSmith update will get you started.

Ideas by TradeSmith Update

Our latest update might be easy to miss at first, but once you’ve discovered it, you’re going to love it! This latest update integrates with TradeStops. It’ll let you add a position to a manual portfolio and even run the Position Size Calculator.

You’ll find this update on the Position Card Page for any ticker.

To get to the Position Card Page, just click on any hyperlinked ticker within the program or simply search for a ticker.

 Position card page view

Once on the Position Card Page, there’s oodles of information. You can find the SSI & VQ statuses. You’ll see if the ticker qualifies for any of our strategies or appears in any of your newsletters. We even provide General Statistics and Fundamentals. These areas can really help you decide if a position might be right for you!
The fun starts on the upper right side of the page – where you’ll find the latest update.

These buttons will link Ideas by TradeSmith to your TradeStops account. Once you click either of these buttons, you’ll be brought to TradeStops. If you aren’t already logged into TradeStops, you’ll then be prompted to do so.

From there, the new position can either be added to one of your manual portfolios or position sized. We make portfolio management easy with TradeStops, and this latest update lets you take the stocks you find in Ideas and seamlessly merge them into that process. And all you have to do is click a button!
