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.

    Default Some of my Worst Decisions, All True

    I've actually made money on a few of these. At the time these seemed to be good decisions.

    1. 2007 My son kept raving about a new restaurant in Columbus Ohio, Chipotle . Was selling around 45. My thoughts " I don't particularly care for Mexican food". I never bought.

    2. 2012 BRKB It's never going to move like big brother BRKA, sold at 100.

    3. 2013 FB . I screwed up getting in at 38. Was happy not taking a huge loss selling at 28.

    4. 2013 MSFT This stock is dead in the water. Seems like I've held forever. I sold at 35.

    5. 2013 ULTA Seemed to be a good pick. Had problem with CEO and tanked. Was happy to unload at 105.

    6. 2014 AAPL It finally got back to 100 and I sold

    7. 2016 TSLA Back down to 200. I think this one is toast. Sold at 200.

    8. 2016 GOOG hits 800 and I take my profits.

    Mine was buying stock in Memory Metals. They owned patents on some alloy which had the property that if it was deformed and then heated the metal regained it's original shape. I envisioned many industrial applications and increasing sales.

    But the only application they ever came up with was underwire bras. You know how when you run your undies through the washer and dryer the bras always come out looking like dish rags? Well, maybe you don't but they do.

    So you underwire the bras with this special alloy and when they come out of the dryer they look like bras again. But they never sold. I mean most girls don't even like wearing regular bras not mind ones lined with metal.

    None stock related, but all true.

    8. Sleeping alone in the woods in the middle of Bigfoot country.
    7. Biting into a Jalapeno picked fresh off the plant.
    6. Carving up a turkey in my shorts with three cats at my feet.
    5. Putting lit candles on my roommate’s turntable and turning it on because I thought it would make a cool pattern on the ceiling.
    4. Climbing over a fence and laying down in the grass at the end of a runway while jets were landing.
    3. Going for a week long hike on the Appalachian Trail in the middle of winter without a tent.
    2. Passing a big rig at 45mph on black ice.
    1. Deciding I was too busy to go see Jimi Hendrix perform.

    Funny, I made the same mistake with another metals company, LQMT which was a company that made "Liquid Metal" and had the same promise as yours did. Stock went right to 0 though.

    Well would you look at that... they're still around and trading as LQMT at 0.09 per share. Who'd have thunk?

    Impressive list, BlueWolf. I have a similar one, Deciding $4.00 was too much to see Hendrix at Cleveland Public Auditorium.
