The consensus is there: the US Economy is doing better, with a but... What is missing is the agreement on what that "but" is. Even Yellen, the FED Chairwoman, though confident in the fact that the lead economic indicators are pointing to a growing and solidifying US Economy and the Financial Markets,  remains cautious. In fact, since the beginning of the year, that is in the first 7 months of 2014,  the US Economy has added more than 1.6 million. The uptake in jobs is by far the strongest growth in the last decade. In the last week of July 2014, jobless claims  fell by 14,000 to a seasonally-adjusted 289,000.  July was the sixth consecutive month that the U.S. Economy added 200,000 or more jobs, although the unemployment rate edged up in July to 6.2%  from 6.1%, due most likely to more workers joining the labor force.

In the previous months, unemployment had amazingly stayed at 6.1%, considered the threshold for  the US Economy to be considered full employment.

AroniSmartInvest™ In Action has been pointing and continue to confirm signs of markets recovery and strengthening, despite investors' hesitation

For AroniSmartInvest ™ users, the first week of August has shown some signs of uncertainty in the stock market. The major indices recorded a downwards seesaw movement. The consensus about what is driving the movement remains elusive, with several investors believing that stocks appear overvalued  given the very low interest rates, and hence prices may soon fall if the FED acts, by raising interest rates. Others believe that the job market, although improving, remains fragile. Some other investors appear worried about the  weakness of the international markets, insecurity around the World, especially in Middle-East and Ukraine, and large debts or economic weaknesses in several emerging economies, such as Argentina and Brazil.  Yet, despite the momentary decline observed in the August first week,  signs of a firm market recovery remain  on the stock scoreboard: most stocks continue to show improvement  over 52 week high or low, or growth over 50  and  200 day moving averages.

AroniSmartInvest has picked a few stocks to consider in the next few stock sessions: AKS,TSO, CHA, KB, KEP, M, SVU. 

  • AK Steel Holding Corporation:  (YAHOO: AKS) AK Steel Holding Corporation's  stock is trending towards the 52 weeks high.

  • China Telecom Corporation Limited (China Telecom):  (YAHOO: CHA)  China Telecom is an integrated information service company based  in the People’s Republic of China. It has been experiencing an unstable trend, since March 2014. By May 2014, some analysts appeared to downgrade the stock. However, it has continued to grow. In the fist week of August, it suffered a decline but the stock remains above the long term moving averages.
  • KB Financial Group:  (YAHOO: KB)  KB Financial Group has grown since early July 2014, going from 34.76 to 39.67 on August 8, 2014.
