Do You Still Belive in Momentum Stocks?

It is funny for me to read at all the heated PDO posts now that argue about it being a long or short. I pounded the table on PDO from $5-$7 (and few wanted to hear about it because it did not move fast) and from that point it hit $46. Insane but fun and financially rewarding. Now people argue about it left and right to my amusement. It just goes to show you that a stock can become a momentum stock when you least expect it and at that it can defy logical arguments for a long time. All you need is the perfect storm and it happens at least 4 unique times per year and sometimes much more by my calculations through the years. I have been quiet so what have I been doing? I have been short scalping financials and playing the SKF like everyone else (Yawn - but steady trades and I hate posting daytrades becasue I like the flexibility to change my mind quickly unlike swing/story stocks for my blog). Yes, scalping is great but lacks the excitement of a PDO APWR EFUT etc., so I am always looking for the next perfect storm and I think we are due for one.

Do you still believe in momentum stocks? I still believe that in the deepest darkest moments of the market, there can still be a momentum stock, if the story makes sense. What kind of press release / story would be an example? In my opinion:

TAYD - earthquake prevention products - low float
NTIC - Plastic Waste to oil Technology in Asia roll out (soon imo) - Bioplastics rollout (board member is a leading expert with his own patents from Michigan State)
ERII - Reduces energy consumption in the procss that converts sea water to drinking water
HEK - Chinese bottled water company
AETI - servicing the Texas wind energy market and oil/gas market
HDSN - government regulation going to drive earnings here

there are many other potentials - all you need is the right story and press release

Even CLWT - if they could put out the right contract on China pollution......it could be THE olympics stock play

There will always be momentum stocks,,,,,the story just needs to be at the right place and right time!

What are your candidates?

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.
