    • ORMP is awesome! For 3 days it yield 100+%.

    • Thanks Bernie. I'm with you on MTG, less so RDN. I see RAD as long term, not short...seems to me they have a long way to go, buts of opportunity. Agree on the soecs as well, but see WMIH as less of a spec than FNM and FMCC. add SYCRF to spec, but could be big. Also like PEIX, IVAN, PLUG, BLDP, GL and Happy Holidays.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Rick this one is for you "GCVRZ" a Christmas gift from me. lol

      Mine are:
      Have some FNMA for speculation as well, also some RAD and GRPN. Sold WMIH.
      Heavily in ACAD, MTG and GALE, though.

      • "big short term speculative buy: AMD"

        I finally gave up on that one several months ago. Bought low, went lower. That's over a period of several years. Just not like the old days when you could figure them to develop something that would leapfrog intel for at least a bit of time and the stock would have a good run up in anticipation and then carry through a bit more. Plus back then intel wouldn't look to put them out of business because of fear of anti-trust action.

        Amd just doesn't have much of anything going for it anymore imo. Be careful. Also had lsi though, for several years as well. That one i also sold a few months earlier. I missed out on the buyout but i did pick up nice, from right around 4 to around 7+ i think it was, plus a bit off covered call premiums made on them over those several years. So it can happen, but amd would have to be attractive as a company to somebody or at least have an attractive product which can compete or beat.

        Edi, i see aa's done pretty well over the past couple of market days. I guess you didn't buy back in, or did you?

    • Rick Yes, S sprint. watch this one we will see $10-$12/s 1st qtr of 2014. I own this stock in the $6's I buy and sell it many times. But at this time it is prudent to include this in your long term portfolio. They have all the ammo now to compete with AT&T and Verizon once they successfully bought T-Mobile. They have the most spectrum available since the purchase of Clearwire. The Clearwire acquisition, which makes Sprint Spark possible by providing access to contiguous 2.5GHz spectrum that enables a powerful combination of speed and capacity uniquely suited for data. It is a good buy at this point.

    • By S do you mean Sprint ? All I see on Yahoo is a 6 month chart. And ORMP jumped 48% on Friday and up quite a bit in the after hours. I own everything you listed except S, ORMP, and OIBR. I am researching OIBR this weekend as per Neilhu recommendation. Bing bought 50,000 shares of this company. He is obviously serious about this one. I do not have enough funds to come even close to this kind of a purchase.
