NFTRH+; tax loss seasonal play at clear support

Fanuc is a Japanese company that produces robots and CNC machinery for manufacturing. It has heavy footprints in the US and China, among other global areas. I am also a former customer and can vouch for the quality of the company’s products. That said, in order to be constructive on Fanuc you’d want to also be constructive on the global economy and the wider Japan … Continue reading NFTRH+; tax loss seasonal play at clear support

NFTRH+; Spotlight on Fanuc

I want to open up an occasional new direction for NFTRH+, where as situations present we deviate from strict chart setups and when I feel I have enough knowledge about a company to at least allow for some fundamental discussion to enter the mix. NFTRH+, as with other lesser priority updates will only be published at the site and auto emailed to those signed up … Continue reading NFTRH+; Spotlight on Fanuc

NFTRH+; Updating the Fanuc Trade

Robotics and Robo-Machine (a fancy name for a small, light and lightning fast Machining Center) maker Fanuc (FANUY) is consolidating its near relentless gain since it was highlighted on January 10.  Having released earnings, that component of the play is over.  As for the currency component, the Yen has been firm lately.  The original post was hopeful for “a pop to 22 or 23”.

i Robot

A reader emailed me this article from Mike Shedlock.  Whenever I read articles on manufacturing written by financial types I prepare for the worst (cue the legions of suits and polished fancy shoes that never saw a factory floor, pumping 3D Printers a couple years ago), but Mish plays it pretty straight and simply outlines the fierce competition among large shoe manufacturers to go Robo. … Continue reading i Robot


A Prime Machine Tool Builder w/ a Hyped Twist falls flat in Q4

I used to get freely distributed emails (i.e. non-premium) from a well regarded service based in the UK.  They struck me as very smart and very buttoned down.  What they didn’t strike me as was guys who have worked on a manufacturing floor.  When I saw their narrative remaining bullish the likes of Fanuc due to its Robotics component (in the face of what I … Continue reading A Prime Machine Tool Builder w/ a Hyped Twist falls flat in Q4

NFTRH+ Trade Setup; Fanuc

Well, here is Mr. Inverted H&S showing up again.  We had something similar in BEN last week, something similar potentially on RUT/IWM… indexes, stocks, US, global… these bounce patterns seem to be popping up everywhere. A little history for those who do not know.  First of all, I am a former manufacturing guy and I have a long history with this quality machine tool company.  … Continue reading NFTRH+ Trade Setup; Fanuc
