Let's see how I did last week. The S&P closed 9/6 at 1655.17, which was a gain of 1.36% over the close on 8/30.
PGT, Inc (PGTI) - This closed 8/30 at $10.18 and closed 9/6 at $10.56, which was a gain of 3.73%. This outperformed the S&P by 2.37%. This one had an excellent week, bouncing nicely off of its 30 day SMA and heading higher, as my technicals indicated. My signals give a pretty narrow optimal window for purchase but this one is still all buy across the board.
The success of my singular pick brings me up to 12 for 21, which is not nearly where I want to be with my accuracy. Wanting to stay around the 65% range means I'm a few successful picks shy yet. Hopefully I can ring in these successes in the next downtick in the market as I feel that my greatest long term gains will come from profit in downward movements.
