Morning Tagit

I have been doing a minimal amount of investing since the first of the year, but have mostly been watching to see if this "correction" was a "blip" or a "blob".

The Small Cap ETFs have been playng havoc with good companies as well as bad ones.

I have mostly been "filling in" on stocks I already own when they get "whammed", and watching a couple I am interested in, but not at their current prices.

Two in particular I am interested in are PLUG (which I bought and then sold when they went up over 100% on hype) and OPTT, which is more speculative and will take much longer to pay off, but looks promising if I can get it at a low enough price.

The banks have been getting "slammed" a lot lately, again, thanks to ETFs.

I look at the blogs but mostly don't comment because I don't have much to add and mostly because it is a "hit or miss" as to whether or not my comment will even take.

I think a lot of those who used to post here are doing that in SA and RB pages instead of in CAPS.

My wife has now recovered from her latest, and hopefully last foot surgery, but is now getting ready to have a hip replacement the end of Feb.

I had to go out and help our old dog overcome the ice on the steps a couple of nights ago, and foolishly forgot I could not walk on the ice myself, so took a tumble and banged my sholder and pulled a muscle in my leg. Nothing broken or torn, but has me hobbling even more than usual.:) 

Hope all is well with you and your family and that you had a chance to get together over the holidays.

Have to go and make a phone call now to get my heater fixed, which decided to go out over night when the temp. got down to the 20's, which will thankfully not stay around too long. We are not built for that kind of weather here.:)

Have a great day and a grand week.

Not sure what your point of this post is - in my opinion, TMFPencils is one of the best things that has happened to CAPS in quite a while. He has some great stock pitches and writes very well researched blogs that are generally spot on.

This is still one of the best FREE investing websites out there, but only if you take advantage of it.

BTW #2

Interesting - I just added 3 of the 4 you mentioned to my CAPS picks as outperforms (based on my own research and a gut feeling that oil and gas stocks are the next sector to outperform the market). I may have to add NOG as well after reading this!

OK - you got me.

Jim, If you will add your wife's first name, I will add you both to my prayer list.  It is the major gift that God has given me.  I appear to have been chosen as prayer warrior. I realize it is not investing but it is much more useful.

I am going to put this into a blog because I keep encountering the topic and I am curious.  How in the world do you decide where a good jumping in or jumping out point is for a specific stock?

And I second EnigmaDude!

Mary, my wife's name is Julie.

I will respond to the second question on your blog.

Think you for your prayers, I know how much they help.
