Last 4 Trades Examined -

DIT - Bought at $32 on April 23rd See Blog Post. It hit $39.20 on Friday, April 24th for 23% gain in a day. I would love a pullback to add more as it now has been rated IBD EPS 99 and that could mean a big momentum run Read Latest Blog Post to see what I think can happen

VIFL - Bought at $1.35 on March 27th Read Blog Post. It hit $3.00 on April 13th for a 122% gain. It has since pulled back under $2. Earnings are due by May 15th and they are up against what I consider easy comps ($0.02). Food safety is all over the news and any mention of irradiation would be a huge catalyst. In the meantime, I do believe management needs to do something about the MDS stock overhang. They are a vendor and largest owner and seem to sell on any pop. Why not just find a strong holder to take out what they want to sell?

NIV - Bought at $3.80 on March 17th .Read Blog Entry. It hit $5.50 then next day for a 45% gain. However, I was looking for something higher and more sustained, not just a quick pop. So I was not happy with the outcome of this one. Time is working against this stock as I believe insiders lock up will expire in May or June. Was stopped out at $4 for no gain.

LZR - Bought at $5.40 on December 23rd Read Blog Post. It hit $10.15 on January 16th for a 88% gain. It then pulled all the way back to close at $4.65 on March 3rd. I pounded the table because I was certain that earnings were going to be impressive year over year. It then hit $9.79 on March 27th for a 105% gain off the pullback. Two chances to get 90-100% gain. Earnings are due by May 15th and once again they are up against easy comps.

Most of these stocks all had very nice gains. Trading them is something I always examine and try to perfect. Picking them is hard and trading them perfectly is even harder. I did not trade NIV well. Having a core / trading share strategy seems to work best. (LZR, VIFL etc.)

At I try to find stocks that have good, factual reasons to move.

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.
