I Am Not A Role Model

I am not a role model
I am not paid to be a role model
I am paid when my stock picks raise havoc on the trading exchanges
Those that want to be teachers should be role models
Just because I pounded the table on PDO at $5, doesn't mean I should tell you your entries and exits

There are many great traders out there in internet land that are currently teaching others. Many have great systems that work and great styles and much can be learned. Some will go through great means to document their exact trades. Stock picking contests, websites where you can track your trades, blog by blog accounts of every exact trading move. I think that is great for those who choose to do that and there are many people and systems that I can personally learn from. (Lionmaster and many traders from, blacksheep and elguapo from Stocks for a Different Jungle at, Tim Sykes, themarketkid, nostradamus, and many more... all on my Blog Links)

That being said, I do not consider myself to be anything more than a guy that does great research and over time comes up with stock ideas that can potentially produce big percentage moves. I aim to be consistent in that one area. I am not about day trading because I have to make money everyday (that mindset is dangerous in my opinion). When I find a great stock I will post endless research on it. When there isn't anything interesting out there I will wait for the next stock that meets my criteria. One week I may have 5 new stocks I enter, the next week I may have none. But my stocks tend to play out over time anyway so I always have something to research.

Lastly, many have messaged me asking me to document:
- The date and time I bought a stock
- The cost of every buy
- How many shares I bought
- The date and time I sell a stock get the point

While I will do my best to provide whatever information I can, (and I am open to your suggestions to make this blog a great reading stop for stocks) please understand:
I am trying to do one thing and one thing only: Find stocks that can make healthy percentage moves in time. I don't have time to enter contests or focus on documenting every tick of every trade during the day. I do tons of research, post on my favorite message board (, help moderate that board, moderate a chat room, and blog here. I am not selling anything. (I don't even have ads on my blog right now).
I am not trying to prove anything to anyone. (However, I am considering getting my results audited.) I simply want to find stocks that can make big percentage moves. (20% to 683% - PDO)

No one ever told me when to buy and sell stocks. I learned the hard way. By making mistakes. I do think that two principles are great for me:
1) Sell some stock when you are up...manage the rest accordingly if you believe the stock has more
2) Use mental or real stops to limit losses
Every trade is a case by case basis and I may change my mind on the drop of a dime

I will make every attempt to post as much information about my trades. But consider me an idea man. Hopefully an idea man that consistently produces stocks like EFUT PDO APWR etc.....ideas that can lead to big profits if they are managed correctly.

Good post man. You are absolutely right, I follow a lot of the web sites u mention, and I know it's hard to make everybody agree with you! Every trader is different, so as his opinion!
I like the idea of sharing research ideas and experience. The most important thing of that is saving time and making money right? :) I expect to read/post and learn a lot form this blog site and Superman!
Keep it uuuup!!!

Welcome to, 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.
