    • A fan? I'm blushing!

      I was out on vacation last week (disney trip for the kids), and have had lots of work to catch up on this week.

      Saw the DCLK news, and as one stock follows another...up went VCLK first thing this morning! I sold 1/4 of my shares at $7.30 this morning. Always take some money off the table after a quick runup. If we drop back to the mid/low 6's, I'll buy 'em back as usual. If we keep going be it, I'll make even more money in the short term.

      With such a quick runup, and due to a competitor, earnings next week would have to significantly beat expectations to keep the run going...if we only meet, or a tad above, we'll probably have a bit of a sell off, and you'll be able to buy again the low 6's for sure. But remember, this sector will be HOT for a few reasons (effecient advertising medium, no call lists, economy rebounding, s/w is generally a high profitable business, etc.) So long term, VCLK has plenty of room to grow.

      Should you buy right now? Mid 7's? Only if you don't already have a good size position (based on your overall portfolio value). If you have a good number of shares, wait for the "potential" drop after earnings are announced. If you have NO shares at present, then buy some now (but don't over do it) could double down at a lower price (low 6's) next week.

      Remember, stocks are like roller coasters...they never go straight up. They will always come down some, before rising again.

      TFSM rode on DCLK's coattails today as well...looking good! I've got a sell order in at $2.35 for 1/2 my shares on that one. It spiked whilst I was away on vacation (dang it). That's what limit orders are for, but I didn't expect it up so much so soon, so I didn't have anything setup on that one.

      Nice to come back from vacation and in less than a week, two of my stocks have increased in value (even after considering tax liabilities) by much more than I spent on the vacation! Just need them to keep on going till Oct. so I can get me my 740iL.

      For those that have followed my postings in earnest...I also bought another 1K shares of TYL today @ $5.04. It took a little dip in price today (dropping to 5.01 at one point), has no debt, plenty of cash (not as much as VCLK though), increasing profitability, etc. all the same things that VCLK has shown. It also announced a contract for my very own county in GA today! So what the heck...that one should be in the mid 7's already, I don't know what's taking it so long!

      Going to my cousin's lakehouse tomorrow/today, so hope things go well for everyone (except SHORTS). I'll see/talk to ya on Friday...

      Go VCLK...

      Patience pays...sometimes, you don't even need much patience!
