Sell Cardinal Health (CAH) at the Market

It is now time to recommend that Cardinal Health (CAH) be sold at the market. The stock has performed reasonably since the research recommendation was issued on June 4, 2009. It is highly recommended that anyone who bought the stock based on my research should re-read the posting. The stock took a small dip in the early part of July, but changed direction after July 10th and hasn't looked back. From the current level, CAH is poised to reach the $43 level considering that we just got a Dow Theory cyclical bull market signal (within a larger secular bear market.) In the pursuit of "seeking fair profits" the returns that this stock has provided within the last fifty-four (54) days say that it is worthwhile considering alternative opportunities.
CAH was recommended when it was trading at $29.95. As of July 28, 2009, CAH was quoted at $33.03. This equals a return of 10.28% in less than 2 months. Conservatively, on an annualized basis this would equal approximately 61% return. Selling this stock now also generates a return 228% greater than the amount of the dividend yield if the stock was held for a whole year.

It is always recommended that when selling a stock, one should not place an order after hours or when the market is closed. This leaves the seller in the position of being vulnerable to the whims of the market makers. Instead, place your sell orders only as a market order during market hours. Some would complain that a market order during market hours might leave some profits on the table. However, I would rather leave some money on the table rather than have it taken away from me by the trades that are placed by institutions and market makers. Touc.
