.....gv now up 220% ($4.85) from where I recommended back in May ($1.50) on this board....with plenty of volume.....anyone could have picked up a 200,000 share position and traded it easily, and gave many months of time to have built a position. in the mid one's.. Although, admiittedly, I sold mine in the three's and feel its well overvalued at this point. At the same time in May I recommended VTNR at $1.50 or so on this board....fell to $1.30 in a month or so, but is now at $3.85....up 160%.from where I recommended. Also sold a bit too early.
What a great market.....I have never had so many huge gains on a variety of stocks in less than one year ever. Heck, the above arent even my two biggest winners. Now, dont get me wrong; I pick plenty of stocks that dont go up as much, or even ones that I get killed on......I tend to swing for the fences and do strike out. But heck, this has been a swing for the fences year. Up 40+% to so far this year on my porfolio of over fifty stocks, after an great 2012. The amazing thing is that I've never had less than 1/3 in cash (a lot more right now).
Nice job!!! I am ahead of the market but nowhere as well as you are doing. I have had a couple of things come through but am still waiting for the ship to come in for a good number of stocks. Keep it up!!!
A large number of the stocks I follow have made huge moves lately too. More so than I can remember in times past. I don't know if it is because prices have been depressed for so long, or if the entire market is getting toppy.
I've been tracking FLOW for years now. It's sort of a high tech version of an old economy business. A business I can understand, unlike biotech or LTE chips lol. The company released earnings yesterday and missed slightly on the bottom line, even though they set a record for revenues. The company said a temporary slow down in orders due to sequestration worries is the reason for the miss, but all those orders were pushed into the current quarter which should now be a another record quarter. Positive earnings, reasonable PE and BV. I don't own any curerntly, but may build a position. I don't know if it is a potentially a double, but the buy-out factor is always there, and a 25% move up seems easily achievably. Comments?
"The company said a temporary slow down in orders due to sequestration worries is the reason for the miss, but all those orders were pushed into the current quarter which should now be a another record quarter."
I misread the cc transcript regarding the above. The company said that due to the temporary order slowdown, the current quarter will NOT be another record quarter. My bad!
...please, there are plenty on Yahoo who do better than me.....LTF does, with a lot more money.
Hope your doing well. BTW, certainly has goten harder to find anything that seems cheap out there. There are some that i like, but the won't come in at all. We'll see if Mr. market makes things cheaper.
