Defining Success

Success of stock ideas are not determined in a day or short term but over time. Success of stock trades are determined on how they are managed. My stocks tend to be volatile and sometimes can be big winners more than once but timing is key. Many of them take more time than patience dictates. I always like to take some profits when I am up and manage the rest of my shares accordingly, sometimes adding shares lower if I still believe in the story. But I am more successful at finding great stocks than I am at playing them to perfection all of the time. That is why discipline is key.

TAYD - I originally bought TAYD on 5/20/2008 at $5.39 and it hit $7.69 seven days later for a 43% gain. After that the overall market hit the tank and we did not hear anything from TAYD. The stock dipped all the way below $5 in the market onslaught. TAYD reported earnings last week and it now has an IBD EPS rating of 99. Today the stock hit a high of $7.43. Two trips of 40%+ gains.

NTIC (NTI) - I originally bought NTIC on 5/27/2008 at $8.75 and it hit $20.85 eight days later for a 138% gain. Again, after that the overall market hit the tank and we did not hear anything from NTIC. The stock dipped all the way back to $8.75 in the market onslaught. NTIC has since bounced as high as $13.50 and the next catalyst would need to be great news on the Waste Plastic to Oil Technology.

Even VIFL, which I bought 8/21/2008 at $2.10 and it hit $3.08 for a one day gain of 47%, wandered (was shorted perhaps) back down to the low $2's in subsequent days but today hit $2.80 again. The next catalyst here would be irradiation contracts or another food borne illness. The stock is already profitable and could easily be a big momentum play with more news.

I am on the search for some potential small cap winners to close out 2008.

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.
