TeleTech Holdings Inc.
Wednesday’s Closing Price: TTEC – $22.93

Sector: Services
Industry: Business Services
52-week Price: $16.17 – $39.06

TeleTech Holdings, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, provides onshore, offshore, and work-from-home business process outsourcing services. Its services include the transfer of its clients’ front and back office business processes to its delivery centers or work-from-home associates.

The stock is an interesting play that could provide rewards based on increasing earnings, revenues and a 10-week/ 30-week positive crossover. The stock was flagged in a technical screen I ran this week looking for strong candidates that made the positive 10/30-week crossover.

The recent slump in the economy may hurt the immediate potential of the company as revenues could stall or even drop but that shouldn’t last for long (or so I think).

Anyway, this stock is a pure trend play based on technical analysis, a possible rebound that I will test with an entry in the $22 area. It’s not my ideal IPO momentum trade or a stock making a new high but this type of position works for me in this market environment.

  1. Man, CPLA doesn’t like to veer too far from the 200d, does it?

  2. Chris, years ago Bloomberg would give the amount of shares held by insiders. I used to like that number. Bloomberg informed me that it never gave that information. Let’s say it was lost in an upgrade. Do you have a source for that information? I like when the people who run companies have some skin in the game [other than a pay check]

    Great work, by the way!
