My Last 22 Stock Ideas

I have compiled an analysis of my last 22 stock ideas from 4/7/2008 through today 6/10/2008. The purpose of this exercise was to see if the majority of my stock ideas produce winners. In doing this I started with the first date and price I bought the stock at, and measure the high price the stock made after that first buy and how many days it took to get there along with the % gain from my first buy to the high.

In mostly every trade I continue to buy after my first purchase, so my real average is usually higher than my first buy. Additionally, it is rare that I ever manage my profits to perfection and sell on the high. A good strategy that I try to apply on every trade is to take some shares off the table when I have profits, then let the rest of the shares run or use a mental stop to sell the rest. However, every stock is a case by case situation. Coming up with great stock ideas that move is challenging to do. However it is equally challenging to manage entries and exits correctly.

Again, this exercise was only to determine if my stock ideas produce movers,
and if so, how much. It is for my own tracking only.

Superman, thank you very much for bringing up your last 22 stock ideas. Can you also post when and if you sold any of those stocks, still holding all of them? It will be a big help for newbies like me to understand what would be my target when I get in certain stock. For example, your purchase of MBLX had 13% gain on the day you bought, so would you sell (all or half) them taking the profits? After two days, it is back where you purchased. Is it good for us to get in now or not? How do you suggest us to determine and teach us about your strategy though your website. That will be really great of you to make us educated.

Welcome to super-trades.com, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
