RINO added to portfolio, JADE sold

I decided to get rid of JADE, which doesn’t fit to my trading strategy. As I mentioned earlier, this purchase was a deviation from my rules.

The truth is, I just picked up this stock in euphoria of making money Continue reading →

CenturyTel CTL as a core of the portfolio

CenturyTel CTL as a core of the portfolio

The whole Sunday I spent rereading and polishing my stock pick strategy. Recently I deviated from several rules I originally used. I thought I already remembered them all or I could outsmart the market again. What a costly thinking! This time I, however, wrote them all down on the paper and created a checklist in Continue reading →

STEC in consolidation

STEC in consolidation

In my weekly Picks History post I mentioned STEC showing a reversal sign. Although I am losing my interest in this stock, because it doesn’t meet my picks criteria any more, I am just curious how the stock will develop and I may consider a small position as a swing trade based purely on technical Continue reading →
