July 03, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: SUNEQ , UNXL , RDN

Yesterday I missed the daily entry. It was the first time I had missed entry since I started this journey.  Anyway, my syle of investing is like watching paint dry. But hey it doesnt have to be exciting to be making money. As I have mentioned, I do this every trading day on Motley Caps to record my performance-because once you post here, you cant edit it, so once it published, there is no going back. So its a good way to accurately record performance. Anyway, with that said, the position  I hold SUNE was down almost 3% today and considering I am short, thats a good thing.

The whole purrpose of this exercise is to see if I can trade my way to a double in the market in less than one year. See the resilts below.

Thanks for following. Hope you are having a nice 4rth. I shorted SUNE for 2 reasons. The stock had run up from $1.70 to $8.45 (price I shorted at) in less than one year, an increase of 497%. 

I screen for stocks like that and then, in this case, I looked at their projected earnings. Using these measures, SUNE was priced more than 2x its value. To me, the price was not sustainable.  Anyway, thats how I arrived at my conclusion. The whole exercise is fun. I take a small % of my account and see if i can double it by continuosly re-investing whatever the proceeds are.
