Pulling Sarah Palin Pledge



January 05, 2011 – Comments (2)

Drats....Something happened.... Makes no sense to keep a $1,000 pledge for Sarah Palin should she decide to run for President of the United States when I may end up not voting for her in the primaries... There's some rumors circulating about various politicians possibly entering the race. 
One of which intrigued me enough to pull the $1,000 pledge.

In short... The money won't go to a canddiate that I am not planning on voting for.....

With that out of the way...

I am extremely thrilled to see MKSI skyrocket from when I recommended the stock and put it on my Green Thumb Caps Pick. 

Stocks like MKSI that are clearly cheap, have tons of cash on the balance sheet, and are producing excellent earnings reports.....and are NOT large caps....and have REALLY LOW volume levels....

Those are the stocks that tend to do the best.  Those are the "Hidden Gems" of Wall Street.

Varchild, I don't know if you ever saw this post from November of 2010: Varchild is THE Man...

At that time that 4-stock portfolio was at +127%, now at +160%.

CVGI, a stock from that portfolio was at +312%, now at +407%.

Nice job man. Keep it up. :)

Thanks a lot for the flattering post on your blog.  Wow.. 18 recomendations? 

And I thought I was the *FOOL* that no one listens to?

Hey, the real credit should go to:

Jeremy J. Stevens,  "Stocks for the Long Run"

It is absolutely a MUST in anyone's library.

I probably would have given up investing in stocks altogether in 2008 if it weren't for the wise advice and guidance I got from that book.  It taught me to examine myself so I invest not on personal behavior.... but on long term analysis.

I think I remember your portfolio....  Those 4 stocks all seemed to fit the "Hidden Gems" theme.

I remember thinking.... *holy cow??? I can't find a single thing wrong with the portfolio.*   :-)  

I spent a good amount of time trying to find a reason to shoot you down but your 4 stock portfolio was just solid.

I am glad I helped you out with that call....

I also helped 2 ladies I met at a Mall with my (MKSI) call. 

They were talking about video games and video game systems and I joined in the conversation.   They then said it was not about Christmas Shopping but investing..... They wanted to profit off of the Christmas Holiday Season.

I told them they are looking in the wrong directiion... they needed to look at Semiconducters which encompass the Christmas Holiday Season the best out of any sector in the economy.

MKSI  had LED Televisions...  And ABC Warehouse's  Paul's T.V. was giving Televisions for Dirt Cheap + a free video game system at the time....

So, given the Christmas Theme of "Televisions selling like a hot cakes"  I told them to look at MKSI.   I sure hope they put their money into MKSI....Cause they'd of got the stock back when it was $20.00!

P.S.  I don't always help people as I can be wrong, dreadfully.

So the usual disclaimer of "Do your own research" will always apply to anything I say.
