SoTM Bull's Eye Report - Today's Most Compelling Buy
Wednesday, May 15, 2013


At, we strive to "own the best and ignore the rest" in our equity portfolios. Toward this end, each day we search our database for a "top stock" (a top rated company in terms of earnings strength as well as company and industry performance) that presents a strong technical "set up" and a good entry point.

In short, when our equity team is looking to add a stock to one of our portfolios, the "bull's eye" stock shown below is generally their first choice.






% Gain
Kinder Morgan Management KMR Oil & Gas Storage & Transportation 7.3 +14.49% $84.81

Why We Like The Stock:

Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) is our most compelling buy today due to the fact that it is a top rated stock (in terms of earnings strength and company/industry performance) with a positive technical set-up. Oil & Gas Storage & Transportation stocks have had a pretty good year so far, as evidenced in positive charts like Spectra Energy (SE), Targa Resources Group (TRGP), and Semgroup Corp (SEMG). KMR has posted gains mostly in line with the S&P 500, though that is not to say its correlated to the market. With a lot of recent chatter about sector rotation into energy, we think now would be a good time to hone in on some attractive energy stocks that have been having a sneaky good year, but also represent nice upside potential and a healthy technical set-up. KMR fits the bill perfectly. After pulling back from late April highs just north of $90, the stock bounced off of its 50-day moving average and has turned a corner. Currently, the stock has just crossed above all of its major short-term moving averages, a bullish indicator, and is gaining quickly. We like this energy stock for a run back to recent late-April highs, using its 50-day moving average as a guide higher. We would set a stop at May 8th intraday low, as any closing price below this level would break the positive set-up. KMR has a good deal of upside, and could be a great pick if you're looking for some energy exposure heading into the summer months. TRGP SE SEMG
We Would Be Buyers:

At the current price (~$86.87).
