The Fab 5 update

This was a solid week for the Fab 5 with one position getting Complete status: $UNH. There was some drama in the $BMRN position with a Stop hitting on the long stock piece on 12/23 but I have a new long as of Friday (Buy Stop trigger at $90).

I closed the $CELG & $GILD positions to book the gains (end of year is next week). Both $HD & $UNH have Complete status so I will likely take them out of the Fab 5 as official positions — but leave the trades on.

Here is the Summary:

Fab 5 candidates:

$CME
$ETR
$IYF
$PRU
$ABC

Some perspective on Gilead Sciences

I have had a position in $GILD for a while (a former Fab 5 member) but I closed the last piece this morning (Short Calls). I am interested in a new trade now – given the volatility & severe price decline – so have been monitoring the bounce attempt today.
Here are a few different chart perspectives to ponder:
