If you keep up with the stock market like I do — even while I’m vacationing at Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire — then you’ve probably heard Thursday evening’s news by now…
Moderna’s being added to the S&P 500… which was great news for First Strike Portfolio members!
But for those of you who might be a little behind, the vaccine-maker is set to replace Alexion Pharmaceuticals, which AstraZeneca plans to acquire, prior to the start of trading on Wednesday, July 21.
And, yes, I got a small group of lucky traders in on it!
As savvy traders and investors would expect, the stock jumped on the S&P 500 news — big time! Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA) was trading at $277.84 per share when we alerted our First Strike Portfolio members to sell our Sept. 17 $250 strike call…
We locked in a nice 148.4% gain in just three days!
That’s why I figured I’d brag on our First Strike Portfolio strategy a little bit. I’ll give everyone a quick refresher on how it works and how my members had the chance to walk away with a triple-digit gain on MRNA.
Our Triple-Digit Gain on MRNA
First Strike Portfolio is one of my favorite momentum trading systems…
It works by finding the strongest stocks based on both fundamental and technical factors, versus some of my other systems that just use technicals.
For example, the strategy looks at things like earnings, the number of brokers recommending the stock to their clients and, lastly, relative strength. So all of that is taken into account to find the best stocks.
But what I love the most about my First Strike Portfolio program is that it has profit targets telling you exactly when it’s time to get out of a position.
It’s a dynamic system that fluctuates or picks trades every single week instead of on a biweekly basis.
And it doesn’t look for runaway stocks after the fact!
So in other words, it won’t pick a stock that already experienced what we just saw in our triple-digit gain on MRNA.

P.S. I’m sure every trader is scratching their head wondering why stocks tend to pop like this, and how they can get in on the next one.
But here’s something they probably don’t know…
Massive hedge funds, institutions and banks are all gearing up to take over the market with algorithmic trading.
These supercomputers can execute thousands of trades in a matter of seconds… triggering enormous stock runs before we even have time to blink…. and they plan on leaving everyone else in the dust!
But that unfair advantage ends today.
I’ve developed a Storm technology and trading strategy that mimics the billion-dollar algorithms Wall Street uses to send stocks soaring…
So which names do I think investors should get ready to jump in on next?
