Let's dive into one of my favorite strategies - buying a strong stock, in a strong sector after a Hooke Pattern.

In this case, the sector is building products/home improvement and the company is Taylor, MI-based Masco Corp. (NYSE: MAS).

The company may not be a household name, but many of their products like Delta faucets, Behr paints and dozens more are. Zacks currently ranks Masco as the country's leading manufacturer of building and home improvement products.

Every index has turned sharply lower this morning in concert with oil prices falling despite concerns over a near-term supply shortage in Libya and the wildfire raging near Canada's oil sands.

Unfortunately, CenturyLink Inc. (NYSE:CTL) got caught up in the selling and traded through our existing protective stop of $28.50, which means we removed it from the portfolio for a manageable 10.99% loss.

If you were following along and had your stop in place as recommended in Alert 79, you should be out of the position, too.

The markets continue to teeter just above a key support level.  In the midst of that, we caught a very nice 53.4% on the second-half of our WYNN May 20, 2016, $92.50 Strike Calls (WYNN160520C00092500) which already gave a quick triple-digit win earlier this week on the first half of this options play.

Now, before we go on, I'd like to remind you that if you cashed in on WYNN May 20, 2016, $92.50 Strike Calls (WYNN160520C00092500) or any of our other big winners recently - I'd love to hear from you.

The oil and natural gas markets have been stabilizing, with oil prices up today. We currently (as of 11:30 AM) are at the high range of my prediction for mid-June ($45 a barrel in New York for the benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude rate).

Now much of today's rise comes as a result from fires in western Canada and renewed violence in Libya. In short, it has little to do with market considerations. Still, such external factors have a way of influencing even the over-supplied situation that has become the norm.

And that's where things get interesting.

Many investors are coming to terms with the stark reality that seven of 10 S&P 500 sectors are expected to show declines when the smoke clears and this earnings season ultimately fades into the history books.

Fortunately, you're not among them.

In fact, we began transitioning our portfolio more than a year ago to defend against exactly what's happening now, AND more importantly, to profit despite rocky economic conditions.

Take Facebook Inc. (NasdaqGS:FB), for example.

As I have noted over the past two weeks, crude oil and natural gas prices are stabilizing.

This doesn't mean we are off to the races. But it does point toward some positive adjustments, especially among selected midstream service providers. This rising tide is not going to lift all boats, as the sector has been beaten up in the long decline in oil and gas.

These are tough times for America's beat cops.

After a number of recent high-profile cases in which suspects died during arrest, officers have to be more cautions than ever.

With several front-page news cases weighing heavily on the American police force, the entire department has been racing to find an answer that will protect the lives of citizens and officers.

And the answer lies in technology.

May is certainly turning out to be the month we expected... DOWN... and we're seeing this affect some of our positions.

Although we've been focusing on earnings for the past several weeks, it seems as if we're now shifting that focus to the Fed's decision on raising interest rates. We'll see what happens...

The markets have edged into the red this morning on weak economic news, but I'm not particularly concerned on the heels of two triple-digit winners in the past two weeks.

There's always opportunity if you know where to look like we do.

Speaking of which, I've got three terrific choices for you today - a trifecta of sorts, if you will.

Foundation Medicine Inc. (NASDAQ:FMI), our play in the red-hot liquid biopsy market - and the first star in what will be a constellation of biosimilar-related companies we're going to invest in and make a fortune owning - reported earnings yesterday.

The market's initial reaction to expectations that the company would report a loss caused a selloff late yesterday (the stock closed Tuesday at $15.23), which continued in afterhours trading.

But then everyone woke up, read the actual earnings report, listened to the earnings call or read the transcripts, bought back the shares they sold and then some.

FMI's up 9% today as I write this (hovering around $16.60), with good reason.
