Thanks BooDog. 1,000% is a good target. They say you should always shoot for the moon. If I made 1,000% I would be back in the game for sure where I could buy 3-8 stocks at a time vs playing 3 or less now. Started with $3,000 in December. I'm up $695.30 in just 5 trades. Hard to make money when your a little drop in the bucket. My 401k, I'm sitting on C and SIRI...but I don't count that money since I can't spend it. Years ago, I was playing with $60,000. Lost most of it and spent the rest. So, 1,000% on $3,000 would put me at $30,000. My personal goal is to turn the $3,000 into $8,000 by April. I can see it happening especially since money (buying power) is compounding with each trade. But man...if I made 23% on $60,000. I'd have $13,800 and fly to Cali to go golfing with Morpheus. [Smile] Just watch...I'll be back up there soon.

I'm in debate today on buying FAZ at $34.25ish. Undecided.

Yesterday I had a chance to jump back in MS at $15.44 and decided I wanted in at $15.40 or less. DOH!!! Would of made another 4.4% Ohhh well. I was going to grab AA yesterday at $9.17 and chickened out.

AA...debating on getting back in. If it hits $9. I'm all in. They pay a DIVY this month I believe.

DNDN...wow...I haven't looked at this stock in years. It hit $54+ last year. Bottom fell out and dropped below $8. Now it jumped yesterday and today to $12ish. No idea where it could get back up to. Maybe $15-20. But its a risky duck for me to play with.

Stocks in mind:

CAR
MO
S
POT
DRYS
YHOO
F
GM
AA
AKS
MT
JPM
BAC
C
MS
FAZ
FAS
DIG
DUG
RFMD....just looked...down $1.07. Hmmm...might buy it and sell on Monday. Look for a small bounce.

Trying to buy 1,000 shares of RFMD at $4.50 and 500 shares of AA at $9.10.

Very cool R1,
I'll have to post some of mine. I put a few in for a annual challenge on another site (don't win anything but wth). I play the indices for my main $$ but still keep my swing accounts rolling. Nope, still not making the big bucks yet either but keeping myself above water. Dont forget the ******** tax man!! lol i typed in the *'s myself.

All post are my opinion. Do your own DD. Who's clicking your buy/sell button!?

Taxes suck for us traders. One year, I imported my tax stuff with Turbo Tax and it said I owed $758,000+++ My heart skipped about 12 beats as if I was a deer stuck in headlights. I had 22 pages full of trades. Owed $251,000 with 2 pages left. Was sweating lakes. So nervous and scared. Lucky for me...last 2 pages were trades involving $30,000-70,000 per trade. So I ended up with a small tax return.

Importing didn't import my entry point. Turbo Tax Deluxe vs Premier is a waste of money to buy Premier. Doesn't do anything special for you unless you have an actual business. Always buy the CD. I tried to cheat and skip the CD last year and got stuck buying the program twice. Pissed me off.

Still sitting in the sidelines. $5.50ish now. Glad I didn't pull the short trigger yet. Cover target is $5.25 now. But normally we see a run up then a new low. Here is the run up...but its stuck now. Might pull the $5.50 trigger.

Too chicken. Hit $5.68. I got a better idea. Go back to bed. Can't lose any money doing that. [Smile]

So happy I went back to bed. Close was $6.07. Next big play is....???? Tell you in the morning. But damn...sold 1,000 shares at $5.20. [BadOne] Missed out on $800+ extra. Glad I didn't short it. I had my finger on the trigger.

So any picks?

EK (Public Inside News) The suits come as Kodak unveiled a plan to restructure its business. The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Kodak preparing to seek bankruptcy protection in the coming weeks.

That means possible play down the road when they announce the bankruptcy. Stock is at $0.60. When filed...I'm guessing $0.15-0.18 low. With a bounce to $0.25. Ticker EK Eastman Kodak

CROX will likely be hot Wednesday.

Crocs shares sprinted 5.9% higher to $16.89 as the company estimated fourth-quarter revenue will come in at the high end of its $200 million to $205 million forecast, and that revenue is poised to surpass $1 billion on an annual basis for the first time.

URBN...CEO resigns. Could shake the stock price up a bit Wednesday.

IDIX...Very steep slope. Plenty of room to fall but I think it might be good for $1.00 more.


Take a look at this stock. Interesting find.

STD...Look at the % of DIVY. 12.59%. That is a very high DIVY. Making money, don't understand how they can afford to pay such a high DIVY when it seems like they make about $0.20 after the Divy Payment. Seems reckless to me. Stock was at $12 a year ago and $16 2 years ago.

Off to bed.

Just a couple I'm looking at...
some of mine are longer swing plays since I don't do the day trading. And yes, still sticking to the under $5.
BRD getting things together better imo
MWA caught this one pretty good a while ago and started a thread on it.
and some fins NBG - watching this one crazy greece.
AOB, BPOP
XOMA is on my list also but certainly has its issues.
STD, seems they are paying to keep the attention.

I really need to take some time and learn more on options. Looked at CROX options but couldn't even begin to pick a starting point of which call to pick. When I played ORCL I think I just got lucky more than skill since it was beaten down so bad. Still working full time too so have to be even more picky, even with a s/l set I'd still like to be able to watch it.

Hostess, a privately held company

Nevermind.

Guess I called IDIX and URBN right. EK is up $0.06. That is due because they are suing Apple and HTC over patent stealing.

[Frown] Debated on shorting 3,000 shares at $1.37...DOH!!! Wish I did. Would of been $600. Gonna leave it alone. Maybe go back to bed.

EK is stuck in place and not much room to make some $$. It will file and I'm almost 100% sure I can't short it. Would be worth it to do it with Chapter 11 coming soon...so they say.

IVAN woulda been quite a trip R1.
EK has pulled the ch-11 rumor a couple times and not filed. Maybe this time they really will. Been a hell of a scalper if I coulda played it.

I like that one. I'll pass it on to my father. He loves the DIVYs. To me, its another thing to claim on taxes. :/

When ever I get some time, I will look over my old posts and see if I can find all the SEASONAL stocks. I can trade like you BooDog. Just would have to use my 401k. Holding SIRI and C in it. C was presplit at $5.40...so after R/S I break even at $54. YUCK!!! I'm close to running with a loss. Its just sucks trading because I have to wait for funds to clear each trade. Can't cheat it anymore. I had it down so good where I 100% of the time owned something. What I would do is: Sell F and buy GM in the same execution. Then no stupid wait time. After a few years of trading like this. ML called and complained because I was buying stock trade "D" before funds "A" cleared. So they fixed my account...I quit using ML. Just loaded up on SIRI and lots of cash and chilled.

But since I don't really care about the 401k. I'll buy that stock. [Big Grin]

Better off playing FBC then foreign bank stock....especially GREECE. At least if you lose your money on FBC, you can go walk into the bank and yell at them or call them. I've called a few companies before and told them I was selling over a million shares. I actually tried it once with a stock a LONG time ago. I had so much stock, I could dictate the price movement.

I was thinking SHORT on JASO at $2.08. Stock ran up quite a bit. Nervous about it...for simple fact its high is lots higher. But it just ran up from $1.40ish. So lots of room to fall. Hmmm....???

How about this play. SHORT IDIX at $13 and cover at $11.50 Friday?

Should of shorted JASO too at $2.08. I'm being very careful now. $1.82 now. Down 12.5% That would of been nice to get. Missed $520.

NBG was just going to be a short swing play. I agree though, being able to "communicate" with someone is always a good thing. If anyone actually does anymore [Eek!] .

Sold EMKR 1.13 thinking it would continue its pull back. I'm still a newby! Yesterday I told myself if it didn't break 1.20 to bail. Started pulling back and shook me out. Made my green but still wanted back in after the pull back. Even with a low volume it still seems to follow the markets volatility.
Touched 1.20 today. grrr

Dang...wish I shorted this one at $0.82. [Frown] Looks like a filing will be soon.

Father's new pick.
NLY Huge DIVY 14%

Other companies like above.
ARR

AGNC

We need to make some watch lists and keep track of it. I will look into making a master list for all of us like I did years ago. Give out the log in id and pass.
