HWG - 500k Float and $10 EPS Run Rate

DIT was a stock I blogged and bought on April 22, 2009 at $32 Read Blog Post. At the time I said the Company would do $10-$12 EPS this year. They reported $10.87 of EPS from continuing operations. DIT hit $71.75, 143 days after my blog post, for a 124% gain so far from the blog post.

I believe I have found a stock with similar characteristics as DIT. I think this stock over 1-12 months could make a similar move as DIT based on similar EPS.

Warning - Stocks that have such a low float and number of shares outstanding can trade thin and be very volatile. They can drop several dollars on low volume. I never take large positions in such stocks and I always understand that they can be illiquid and have risks.

HWG - Hallwood Group Inc. See Bloomberg
Shares Outstanding - 1.5m
Float 500k
EPS for Q3 - $2.67 per share Read Press Release
EPS for 9 Months of 2009 $6.94 per share

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.
