December Update - Ouch!

December 15, 2008 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: OWW.DL , IT , HTZ

Well, its been a few months since I posted here, though I have continued to swap picks out once per month as I originally declared.  Another 5 picks just swapped out, 2 positive, 2 negative, and 1 neutral.  That puts my record on ended picks at 7 positive, 22 negative, and 5 neutral.  Ouch!  [more]



August Update

August 18, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: HNR , MMR.DL , AMED

Another month and another four stocks swapped out.  HNR was my only loser this month, ending with a score of -16.  CPE, MMR, and AMED all ended in the positive despite dropping to 3 stars, which is how I've been hoping things would work out.  It's an amazing thing to see 5 star stocks climb, drop in rating, and then fall, showing that CAPS players really do know a thing or two about the stocks they're picking.  CPE netted me less than 5 points, so it won't help my formal accuracy rating, but I'll take it anyway.  MMR and AMED did much better, with 20 and 45 point gains, respectively.  [more]



July update

July 17, 2008 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: TCM.DL2 , SIFY , SAFM

Well, it looks like we have our first 3 losers this month.  TCM, SIFY, and SAFM have all dropped to three stars and been booted off the island.  Do not pass go, do not collect $200.  TCM and SIFY ended in the red, while SAFM netted me a decent gain.  I was also able to close out NGPS and ASPV ever so slightly in the green, which means they have no impact on my accuracy (which is good, since they really should've never been picked in the first place).  [more]



Monthly Check-In for those playing at home

June 14, 2008 – Comments (7)

Still no 3-star stocks in the portfolio, so my original 200 picks will stand for another month.  The two stocks that should've never been picked (NGPS and ASPV) are coming pretty close to turning green.  Just need the S&P to drop another 2%, which seems like a strong possibility, and those two will get closed out first chance I get.  [more]



Screener and Maintenance Thoughts

May 18, 2008 – Comments (3)

I got a couple of questions in my intro blog post about how I chose my stocks and how I intend to monitor them going forward, so I figured I'd post my thoughts on the topic.  First off, please note that these are intended to be guidelines and not rules.  It's a path for me to follow, but I may veer off every now and then.  [more]
