The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 8183 on 7/9/09, as the stock market initially went up on a better then expected initial claims figure but fell apart late in the trading day. The Dow Jones Futures opened the morning higher and spiked more after the initial jobless claims data was released. The data shows a drop in initial claims to 565,000 last week. While the drop is viewed positive, we had a holiday week that most likely tainted the data. If we have the same or better data over the next two weeks, the green shoots theory would return.

The Dow Jones did well today which was partly due to IBM stock being up $2. Basic Materials and the Energy sector did the best today. Stocks like Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan (NYSE: POT) , Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (FCX) , and Haynes International Inc. (HAYN) were the bright spots in the basic materials sector while ConocoPhillips (COP) and Petroleo Brasileiro (PBR) rebounded for the energy sector.

The red flag stock today was American International Group, Inc. (AIG) which plunged under $10, down almost 29%. There's a significant chance that American International Group Inc.'s (AIG) equity may be worthless, a Citigroup analyst said Thursday. If AIG continues to tank, it might really spook the market. If I was an investor or active trader, AIG would be on the top of my watch list followed by Citigroup ( C ) as a gauge. Check out some of the events I will be watching for Friday.

Stocks to Buy July 10, 2009 7/10/09

Thursday, during regular trading hours, there were many stocks that continued to break out to the upside. Below is a list of stocks that are worth watching for July 10, 2009. Also, check out the Biggest Stock Gainers of the Day. You can also find previous stocks to buy reports - Right Here

Stocks to Watch - 7/10/09 - Stock Market Ideas

Head and Shoulders Pattern - First, before I buy or watch any stocks, I must remind myself that the stock market is breaking down on a technical pattern called the head and shoulders formation. The neckline was broken on Tuesday and there is now a clear downtrend. How long will this last? Not very sure but I am looking for at least 8000 to be tested before the downtrend ends. Rallies back to the 10 & 50 day moving averages should be sold. You can see my Dow Jones Analysis each day - Right Here

Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ)
Daily Finan. Bull 3X Shs(ETF)(FAS) - Both FAZ and FAZ had reverse splits Thursday. FAS trading at $39.74 is basically trading back near the $8 level which is now resistance. I'd be a buyer of FAS near $35 where it was yesterday if you are using the post split price. I'd be a buyer of FAZ if FAS gets near $50 per share.

Citigroup Inc (C:NYSE) - Citigroup stock is finally showing signs of a short term bottom as it traded up on Thursday. I am looking for a break out if C stock breaks $2.71 which could take the stock back into the $2.80's where i'd be a seller. I am also watching Wednesday's low of $2.55, if Citigroup breaks through that level, $2.40 will be tested.

American Intl Group, Inc. (AIG) - AIG stock plunged to the $10 support level I was looking for over the past few days. It produced a 5% bounce if you bought it there. We now have a Citigroup analyst out stating a worthless stock price going forward - Strong Chance AIG Equity May Be Worthless, Citigroup Says - There's a significant chance that American International Group Inc.'s (AIG) equity may be worthless, a Citigroup analyst said Thursday.
Analyst Joshua Shanker wrote in a research note that there's a 70% chance that AIG's equity is worthless due to more losses on credit default swaps, and "management's increased openness to disposing of businesses at low valuations."

Keep an eye on this situation, a break below $10 would be really bad and more selling pressure will crush AIG Stock.

U.S. Oil Fund (NYSE: USO) - The United States Oil Fund LP (ETF) hit a low of $32.10 as oil prices plunged on Thursday below $60 per barrel. The USO has support between $32-$32.16 as well as around $31. If you are looking to trade oil, this ETF allows you to trade the daily moves of crude oil. I would only suggest using this ETF if you know how it works. Oil is due for a bounce soon.

Continental Resources Inc. (CLR) - CLR stock had a nice pop in the first part of the trading day Thursday but then went back under $24. I will be a buyer of pullbacks under $23 going forward and a huge buyer under $20 if it gets there. Click Here for my CLR write up.

Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTIC) - CTIC ripped back over $1.37 today but is now fighting to hold this level. You can be a buyer of this stock as long as you know $1.22 is a low that must hold going forward. IF CTIC breaks $1.22, it has a chance to retest the $0.97-$1 MAJOR support level.

Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (HEB) - Investors and traders continue to wait for the FDA decision on their CFS drug, Ampligen. The long delay is starting to get old! Management remains silent. It's almost like they went on vacation without notifying investors. ZzzzzZZzzzzZZZzZzZzZZz

Labopharm Inc. (DDSS) - Keep an eye on DDSS stock , the company is due to receive an FDA decision on their drug DDS-04A for depression - July 18, 2009 - Discuss DDSS

Rigel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (RIGL) - RIGL stock had some nice news out Thursday but shares tanked right after the open. At about 10:45am EST, shares of Rigel reversed and even broke though the high of the day on strong volume. Keep an eye on this stock for Friday. Rigel says arthritis drug shows progress; shares soar

Buy the Dip - Below is a list of stocks I would be buying on any strong pullback.

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) - $56
MasterCard (MA) - $150
Apple (AAPL) - $120
Palm, Inc. (PALM) - $13
Research In Motion Ltd. (RIMM) - $57

My Continental Resources CLR Stock Buy / Trade

On July 7, 2009, I made my first long term stock buy since December 2008 in which I bought shares of Continental Resources Inc. (CLR) at $22.61. In November 2008, I started buying shares of Mercadolibre, Inc. (MELI) below $10 and let most of them go between $12-$13 one month later. My plan was to " flip " my MELI shares by selling them at a higher price and buy them back lower. I never got the chance and you can now see where shares of MELI are to this day. above $23. Oh well, I will take a 25% one month gain in a grizzly bear market any day!!

When I accumulate a long position, I don't buy the stock all at once and will often try to trade the shares when the opportunity is right. Today I traded shares of CLR at the open, selling at $24.50, buying back at $23.80. I still only have half the stock position I want to be at.

Why did I buy Continental Resources Inc. (CLR)?? Well first off, I must say that I have been watching CLR for awhile and given the economic crisis in 2008, I really didn't feel good about the first quarter of 2009. We ended up hitting a bottom in March but given the gut busting downward spiral the markets were in, who knew when we would hit bottom?

A week ago, Oil prices made a short term top around $73 and are now back to $60. Shares of CLR topped out above $34 on June 10, 2009. Since then, there has been an $11 price drop for no reason at all. I made a buy on July 7 at $22.61 with the low being $22.33.

I bought CLR because they are the largest operator in the Bakken Shale which is a huge oil formation located in Montana and North Dakota. The Bakken Formation is the largest oil field in the United States. Given the recent news about China inking deals with Brazil, Russia, and other countries for Oil, one day these assets in the United States could end up being more valuable then the price of oil ( which will be much higher ) itself.

Sanish / Three Forks Oil Zone - The three forks zone is located in the middle bakken formation and many of the companies drilling in the Bakken are find large amounts of Oil in this zone. Some of the best oil wells coming out of the Bakken Shale are from this area. What CLR and a lot of companies aren't sure about is if this is a separate zone or part of the bakken formation itself. If it turns out to be a whole new oil field, Continental's reserves could increase by 40-60%.

Government lack of Action: What is it going to take for the United States to get away from our dependence on foreign oil? Oil prices went to $140 and everyone was trying to figure out ways get off of our Oil Addiction. Government talked about offshore drilling, lifting the ban on Anwar and the Green River Formation in which the Government restricts drilling. Oil prices then went to $40 ( the best time to take action ) and all you heard was silence on this issue. The fact of the matter is, we are never going to get off of oil, at least not anytime soon. Oil prices went from $35 to $70 on a hint of recovery....can you imagine what happens when the demand for oil actually comes back?

Jim Cramer likes CLR - Jim Cramer recently recommend Continental Resources to his viewers. I usually only agree with Jim about 20% of the time because his show is strictly for entertainment purposes only but he does bring up some good points about CLR in this video. Jim Cramer has had some REALLY bad calls but also some great calls. I think CLR will be one of his great calls.

Bottom Line - The prospects for Oil look bright, CLR is undervalued and sitting on nice US Oil assets as well as Natural Gas assets.

I will be buying anything under $20 from here on out but will be trading some of the shares every few days for a chance to sell high and buy back lower.

Continental Resources ( CLR ) is a Strong Buy below $25
