Quantcast
I have 26 consecutive profitable trades of 15% or better. How is this possible? Every day there are hundreds of stocks setting new highs, no matter what happens in the overall market. Many of these stocks are still at very reasonable valuations. Afraid of buying stocks at their highs? Think of it this way: a new high is really a future floor for companies with solid financial underpinnings. Quantitative momentum modeling makes it easy to identify stocks that can continue this upward momentum trend. Why does this happen? It's really very simple..ask me about what investors and cows have in common. I am $$$ MR. MARKET $$$. I AM HUGE!!! Bring me your finest meats and cheeses. You can join in on the fun.

    Thank you all and good luck, so far no greenies yet. And to make sure we only look for greenies, I was thinking you can only achieve a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place recognition if your pick or portfolio was green at the end of the week, just in case everyone ends up in the red.

    Well, trying to go with BRKR short. I think she is heading south to touch her Psar level before attempting another run up. Hopefully not until next week of course Though she does look like her pattern has been up down up down, with the down being major (like yesterday) before reversing, so hopefully she breaks her pattern tomorrow.

    Congrats to Peanuts, Rob, and IIC !

    Great picks already, especially FCX long which beat the Dow's gain for the week, well done !

    Aye Rob, you would have crushed us all with JASO long, it would have hit +48% from a Monday entry to Friday. Doh You came in 2nd though this week.

    Alas, only 6 of us had picks this week. Hopefully Spikefader didn't scare everyone off from his mighty win last year Come on foks, there's money to be made and reputations to keep ! Show us how HUGE you are !



    Had a little mix up on the image above, but was able to paste it back together It won't be as psychadelic in the future, I promise
