I've ridden the GTN freight train for a couple months.

I'm staying on that train.   It's been a good ride thus far with minor set backs and frustrating moves.  But in the end, the destination has been as fun as the journey.   To $3 and beyond GTN!!!  The little engine that could!


Now I need CMLS and BRCD to do the same :)

Damn you GTN, damn you!  Why do you have to piss on my dreams!  Whyyyyy! lol!! 

Like I said, the ride has been bumpy and frustrating.  2 steps forward, 1 step backward.  Lets hope it doesn't turn into 3 more steps backward, and so goes my 40% winnings :(

Jason...I like the looks of CMLS the best...take profits from your GTN train ride I say...especially if it closes below 2.49.

Impressive job Dragon!

GTN I'm holding hope it hits $3, it got close.

It's back up again today, regained its losses from teh day before for the most part.  These stocks have low volume, but when they have large volume days, they pop like 20-30%.  

GTN popped like that last week, and gave back around 9%, so I'm still netting in the gains.  I'm comfortable with its flucutations at this point.

CMLS I like also.  I think its 40-50% undervalued.

alexpaz, please do not exeggerate... So far, my best rating was 99.3... :)

I see your rating went from low 20's to 90 in a matter of days (just like mine went from 99 to 65)... Congratulations!

I didn't think something like that was possible in such a short amount of time. I guess I learned something new. I know you were trying to warn me about it a month ago or so, but I wouldn't listen...(stupid me)... :)


UL, thanks for keeping everybody updated on my recs.

It looks like things are not going my way letely. I guess that's also the reason I find less and less time to spend here on CAPS... I guess I wasn't so tired after work and busy with other stuff when my stock were skyrocketing... :)


Btw. the above listed portfolio is up 7% today (as of 12:30 PM). Notable "winners": ARM up 12.6%, PNX up 11.5%, TEN up 7%...

The whole portfolio up 2.6% since my rec...

Hey Dragon, would you believe that at one point I was #326 in the CAPS ratings?  I refused to believe that banks should not be held accountable and red thumbed the lot of them - BOTTOM! 

That was in April.  I am working my way back toward positive points after losing 2000 of them.  Hang in there.  You have good instincts. I just think the market is ready to tumble.  I put stops on my profits and came out relatively unscathed, but CAPS is paper and pretend.  I Still Like Your Style!

Hang in there

UL, why are you not keeping everybody posted on the progress of this portfolio? Sleeping on the job again?

I guess, I'll have to post something new on it... :)
