Welcome to our weekly newsletter, where we offer insights into stock setups that we share with our Phoenix members.

This week we have seen the markets maintain their position at, or near, recent all-time highs which, as we mentioned last week, is to be expected during the US earnings season. 

However, a stagnant set of indices doesn’t necessarily result in a static portfolio performance. The benefit of selecting high quality stocks, such as those in the Phoenix portfolio, is that we continue to see our portfolios outperform the main indices.

In the past week we have seen excellent returns in stocks such as Nvidia, Microsoft, Tractor Supply Company, and Cadence Design Systems – all which have been analysed in this newsletter numerous times throughout 2021.

Let’s get into this week’s newsletter!

Here are how the best-performing UK & US stocks, as picked out by our scanning process, have
performed this week.

On the daily time frame below, price is also above the 20sma, 50sma and 200sma and the Sublime trend filter is green confirming alignment with the weekly timeframe and between the moving averages. With many stocks pulling back in September, this is one of the few stocks that has performed better than the broad market.

If price breaks and closes above $300 then we can expect further moves to the upside, and we will update our Phoenix members accordingly.
