Palm Smacked me back! Now what should I do??? Round 2!!!

January 11, 2009 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: PALM.DL2

I just finished posting my pitch for Palm after I red thumbed it two days before it soared!  Boy a few lessons learned on that one!  Namely, don't red thumb a beleagued darling a day before a product announce!!!  I thought about just not putting a pitch in, waiting out my 7 day hold sentence, cringing in fear, and disappearing like I never was, but .... I'm never one to be quiet. My Mom used to say that if you don't have anything nice to say, bite your tongue until it bleeds.  I've tried biting my fingers so they couldn't type, but there's no stopping them.  [more]

Internet Darlings without their sparkle. The I3 Color Contenders!

I keep promising myself that I won't “sector slam”, or ALL IN, a sector here on CAPS. I have seen too many things in this nonsensical market to count on anything making sense, especially the obvious. Why risk that many accuracy points in one sector when there is so much out there to chose from?

Secondly, Sector slamming before earnings is generally “asking for it” as managements tend to be somewhat successful in spinning the news, and investors, especially mutual fund and institutional investors, are wary of admitting that they made a mistake with their clients’ money.  Give it a quarter or two and it could be all better before the Lemmings even know it!   Earnings are particularly subjective or spinable for sectors that have heavy seasonal variation, so these three could bump up, but I'm certain, will eventually go down!  [more]

January 2008 was an exception to the January Effect.  January 2009 seems to be riding it very well.  [more]



Callaway Golf, an SPY beater? S09P1: Going agianst the tide.

January 03, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ELY

Not many of my fellow fools support a thumbs up on Callaway.  When you do the research you can see that Callaway has not beaten the S&P over the last five years.  We're in a recession, money is tight and golf is a luxury, right??  Since I seem to be a contrarian on this one, I thought I'd share some reasons why I think Callaway, ELY will beat the S&P/SPY over the next year.  I'm looking for reasons that I'm wrong!???  [more]



Water, Water, everywhere, but not a lot to drink....Install 1 of Good water makes happy bulls!

     With the concern that water is becoming a scarce commodity, and always open for a few socially redeemable (though not required) investments for my church stock club, I did a little research the last week. As you may note in some of my pitches and the below,  I really, really am bullish on water.  I don’t mind paying for it, especially if it’s in the form of a good beer.  As you can see from some of my blogs/pitches, perhaps I like beer a little too much!    [more]
