Americans finally getting back in shape... (re: Nautilus)



May 08, 2013 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: NLS

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...

Dragon.....    what  up  man...

unfortunately   looking  at  my  muscular  ever  increasing  stomach  and  the  lying  numbers  on  my  digital  scale...  lol..

I  think  more  and  more  North  Americans  are  getting  in  worse  shape...   most  blow  flexs   for  them  make  excellent  cloth  hangers or  art.

I  just  recently  bought  myself a  new  charcoal  grill  them  lying  sob's   at   home  depot...   really  pissed  me  off  by  lying  to me  and  failing  to  put  together   the  grill  I  ordered  and  was  ready  to pick  up..

anyways  I  cancelled  the order  thanks  to  the  really  bad  customer  service  I  received  at  the  store...    and  I  bought  my  grill  from  meijers  and  I  decided  to  put  it  together myself...

I also bought  like  over  100 dollars  in  accessories  to  go  with my  new  grilling  experience... 

man  char coal  grilling  is  more  old  school....   smoke...  I'm  covered  in  pleasant  grill smoke   my  meat  was  never  more  delicious...

my  mouth is  still  vibrating   :)

like  i'm  sort  of   charcoal  fiend  now ...   LMAO...

even  used  real  wood...  in  addition  to  them  char coals...

LORDZ, I love your story about your new grill. You definitely have a talent. Just by reading it, I could see you flipping those burgers. And it made me hungry...


Porte, thanks for the update. I'm guessing that the people who fell for the "sell in May" didn't look at your chart... :)

Dragon  I  cooked    ~~  charcoaled up   some  veal chops  and  some other veal cuts  along  with  a  porterhouse  and  a  young  small  rack  of  lamb...

It was my  first time  using  charcoal..  thought  I  screwed it up but  oh my  gosh  everything  was  so  delicious  and  had  this  distinct  smoked wood  flavour,  even  on  the  parts  of  the lamb  that  looked like it got burnt  to  H E double  hockey sticks  ~~  tasted  so  delicious ?  looked  burnt  but  didn't  taste  like  it  was burnt ?  it  tasted  as  if  magical flavours  molecules  drifted  down  from heaven  to  coat my  meat...

The only  thing I have  left over is  part of  the porterhouse  and  it still tastes  awesome  even  eating it  cold  straight  from the fridge.

I  didn't  use  any  lighter fluid,  instead  I  used a  chimney starter  to  light  up  my  charcoal  ~   I  used  the  really  cheap  5.99 for  16 pounds of  supposedly  natural charcoal  manufactured  locally.

Honestly  I  bought  that  charcoal from  Home depot  it  was the only  $$  I  bothered  to spend  with them,  I  can't  wait to try  the  all natural  cowboy lump  charcoal that I bought  from  meijers  they have  all  strange  shapes  and  i'm told  it  should  cook even better  than  those  brickets...

Just have to master  the  lighting  and  spreading.

I had  to supplement  and  add  chunks  of  wood  that I  bought  from meijers  because  the  charcoal  called  embers  that I bought seemed  like they didn't produce enough heat ?  anyways  I  managed  to still get  my grill on  and  I still have left over  chunks of wood  and  coal for my next  cook out ;)

Theres something about cooking over a  natural flame  from wood  that  cannot be  replicated... 

I  can't wait to taste what  chicken and  ribs  are gonna taste like on my  new charcoal  grill..
