Quantcast
I have 35 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 Not asking for much in 2012, help wanted

    Let's run a friendly little contest in 2012 that can also help our slightly shrunken portfolios for the new year.

    The simple rules:

    Name 2 stocks that pay at least a 3.5% dividend and will appreciate at least 11% from opening price of 2012.*

    As an added bonus you can enter anytime before market open Jan 9th.

    If dividend is lowered during 2012 the stock is eliminated. (if lowered<3.5)

    To help keep the national debt in check, 1st prize will be a gold star (paper), 2nd prize silver star, etc.

    No duplicate entries first posted gets the pick.
    I'm going to research now. Price for splitters will be adjusted accordingly.

    ------------billy

    * if you are entering a stock between Jan. 3rd and Jan 9th the div. must be at least 3.5% when entered (early year price increases could effect div)
    As long as the div. is 3.5% or above when posted you'll be safe all year unless company officially lowers it.

    To make it a little more interesting, the winner will be determined by adding the yearly gain and the dividend paid. However, the stock must gain at least 11% during the year to qualify.

    So you choose, extemely high div. or extemely strong company?

    Billie 3 dividend players evey portfolio should have , especially tucked away into a ROTH or TAX FREE IRA. Remember folks in a ROTH IRA Taxes are paid UP FRONT , and what you make during the course of its run is TAX FREE at the end when you cash in.
    Here are the 3
    YUM, PM and MO

    Here is a graph of their performance
