What do you do differently than the majority of CAPS players that makes you an all star? I'm interested in your stock selection approaches and your approach to timing your buying and selling (or shorting). I will post a reply as well but don't want to steal anyone's thunder so will wait to see who wishes to reply.
I picked these up out of the clearance bin a few days back and went long full well knowing I could go near to -100 on each pick. Today puts me healthily in the positive on both picks. I'm tempted to end the picks today but then I still remember why I picked them in the first place. I was hoping for a triple or nothing opportunity and neither pick has tripled yet! Your thoughts?

Actually 5000 doesn't seem like an impossibility to me but I just can't sell stocks that are offering me earnings yields of 10% and higher over the next several years. I don't know what else can beat that long term. [more]
