4 Deep-Value Stocks Uncovered By The Pullback

Although the major market averages remain within an arm's reach of their all-time highs, many individual stocks have entered their own bear market in recent months. With few investors showing much buying interest right now, shares of these stocks have pierced their 52-week lows.
The key is to track these stocks because they could emerge as solid value plays. I've found four stocks that could fit the bill during this midsummer swoon.
Loews (NYSE: L)
52-week high/low: $49.43/$41.69
Recent price: $41.75
One of the most unheralded stories of America's recovery from the Great Recession of 2008 is the sharp improvement in the balance sheets of financial services firms. These firms have been rebuilding their capital base at a rapid rate, but still don't get credit for their efforts. (more)

1-year chart of Analog (Nasdaq: ADI)
ADI has been chopping its way higher for most of the year. However, the last 2 months for the stock have been rough ones. You will notice that the stock has even fallen back under the $50 level, and that level has always been key for ADI whenever the stock has been above or under it.

The Tale of the Tape: ADI has a key level of resistance at $50. A short trade could be made on any rallies up to that $50 area with a stop placed above that level. A break back above $50 would negate the forecast for a lower move.

Old Crop August Soybeans Undergoing the Long-Expected Short Squeeze

by Dan Norcini
Trader Dan Norcini

Take a look at the following chart of the August bean contract which is currently in its delivery period.
[...] The story here is the historically small old crop carryover or ending stocks. With what is expected to be a massive bean crop this year, strong hands have been holding the beans and refusing to let them go. End users who could not wait for the new crop to start rolling in have been forced to pay outrageous prices for these beans to the point that the bull spreads have run the August to an incredible $2.40 premium to beans for November delivery.
We are going to get reminded of the tightness of those ending stocks in tomorrow’s USDA report and that has kept selling pressure from intensifying in the rest of the bean complex. With basis weakening however, it did make one wonder if today might have been the last hurrah for the crushers or those who are having some great fun at the expense of the trapped shorts in the nearby August.

1-year chart of Universal (Nasdaq: OLED)
Over the last 3 months OLED has been slowly moving higher. During that time, the stock has formed a trendline of support (blue) that it has been bouncing on top of. Always remember that any (2) points can start a trendline, but it’s the 3rd test and beyond that confirm its importance. OLED’s trendline seems to be very important now that it has been tested multiple times.

The Tale of the Tape: OLED has created a 3-month trendline of support. A long position could be entered on a pullback to that trend line, which is currently sitting right around $30, with a stop placed below that level. A short position could be entered if OLED were to break the trend line support.
