It's hard to imagine AMD driving any lower than it is presently, but with a PC dying market and tremendous competition in the microprocessor market with Intel, the last bastion of hope (IMO) is AMD's video graphics cards (which I personally happen to like). I'm sure I'll be attacked on this, but if AMD is to survive the mobile/tablet revolution (of sorts), then it will need to either cut back on some of its operations or develop products that can take advantage of the market's direction.

This pick is meant for the long term. An initial climb back up is probably inevitable, but I'm not going to risk it with real cash.

Gee! I hate that %$#@#.(Mary Stern)
I have just looked at my my points and I have lost 75 points in just one day and now I am just MrEighty!!
What is she is right and I am not in touch with the Market.
Maybe the Market is in an uptrend after all!

Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move
Everybody's a winner and nothing left to lose
Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground
Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound

Strange days indeed.

Do you realize this plan of yours could backfire?

"Rag Doll livin' in a movie
Hot tramp Daddy's little cutie
You're so fine they'll never see ya leavin' by the back door, man

Hot time get it while it's easy
Don't mind come on up and see me
Rag Doll baby won't you do me like you done before

I'm feelin' like a bad boy
Mm just a like a bad boy
I'm rippin' up a Rag Doll
Like throwin' away an old toy
Some babe's talkin' real loud
Talkin' all about the new crowd

Try and tell me of an old dream
A new version of the old scene
Speak easy on the grape vine
Keep shufflin' in a shoe shine
Old tin lizzy do it till you're dizzy
Give it all ya got until you're put out of your misery"

Aerosmith's Rag Doll. A little too much innuendo, but man I love that beat!

So what is your opinion about CVI and GEOS.
I intend to make my money by switching between my "Holly Trinity" stocks (DDD,CVI,GEOS)
Those are my leading stocks:

return of over 100% in the last 12 months,
they are the leaders of their own group,t
the price is over $38.

Thank you!

My portfolio finally took off on Friday after wobbling since Jan 6th.
The sleeping giant (PCLN) woke up yesterday.
That is my strong indication of the new uptrend

All your picks are on the short side so you are going to lose your points very fast.
Watch out!

You're right about the fact that I'll probably lose my cap a few times. My hope is that most of them will go positive in the long run. That's why I'm not ending them yet. (ACAD is killing me XD)

I was in GEOS for about a 20% gain about 2 months ago. Didn't do significant research on it, though. Haven't touched CVI before. I'll try to have my research organized by Wednesday on these two. Life is a little busy until then.

Interesting idea with your "holy trinity." I do something similar whenever I don't know where to place my money: I put it into BRK-B and wait for a 5-10% gain. By the time I've made that gain, I usually have 3-5 good growth stocks to put my money in.

CVI is a buy today.
Goes up over 3% on a volume 130% above average.
It's time to buy the leader

130% return in one year
the leader of it's own group,
price over $38.

Go for ii
How about putting the 10% of your capital in the stock with an 10% stop loss.
You will risk only 1% of your money

Posted the chart on Twitter
Aroon Indicator is up,
MACD (24,52,18) rising and above the zero line,
KST Indicator crossing

Here is your opportunity to make money by following me!!!

Like any potential, new investment, I'll put some fake money into it first and track my areas of success and failure. For now, I'll place fake money in whatever you're following until I feel more confident in your practice.

You are welcome!
Just watch my portfolio.
I have sold the worst performer (INGR) and bought CVI.
CVI went up over 1%.
Good sign.
Buying stocks with 10% of your capital and placing the stop loss at 10% your purchase price is perfect.
There is no pain or fear.
The max you can lose on any transaction is just 1% of your money.
