Americans finally getting back in shape... (re: Nautilus)
How do I know?
Just look at Nautilus Inc.'s (NLS) at 1-yr chart below. It's up 250%.
I first picked Nautilus as a future winner back in April of 2010 when it traded at $3.33. Unfortunately, at that time, my fellow Americans let me down by failing to exercise, which showed up in poor sales of Bowflex and other home gym equipment from NLS. That, in turn, resulted in my NLS pick taking a 50% dive by August of 2011.
As even after that sharp drop I still didn't lose faith that my fellow Americans will eventually wise up and start exercising, I closed my NLS pick on 8/8/11 at 44 CAPS-points loss, and re-opened it the same day at $1.75 (looking for a better "entry" point, that is, looking to gain more CAPS points that way).
Here is my original pitch for NLS from 2010:

No, your initial thought is not correct.
No, I'm not a gym rat or an exercise freak who has a Bowflex in his living room (so I can watch Dancing With The Stars while I exercise).
Nope. Not even close.
I never believed the company that makes Bowflex and other gym / exercise equipment would be a good investment idea.
But..., my eleven twenty-one method is telling me there is a very good chance of Nautilus being a nice, healthy winner at today's $3 levels.
OK, let's now see if there is enough people in this country getting their butt back in shape...
Today, my (second) NLS CAPS pick is up by 340 points (NLS has returned 380% since then), and my original NLS pick would be up by approx. 100 points, if I haven't closed it. Long story short, I wanted to congratulate to my fellow Americans for choosing a better and healthier life style.
p.s.Watch for McDonald's stock to start dropping now...
