Quantcast
I have 30 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 Buying Growth Stocks for Growing Baby

    Baby grand daughter finally has her online trading account established with $1000. Am looking for a stock or 2 with great growth potential yet not too risky. My top candidates are BWLD, AAPL, UA, DIS, and SBUX. Probably would be holding at least 6 months and maybe years if I hit a hot one. Any suggestions? Baby brother gets his account at age 2. Maybe 1/2 in a high div. stock. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater

    Good idea, Louetta. That would be 1 share GOOGL and 5 shares AAPL. Or do I want AMZN since they will control the world in another 10 years, maybe fewer.

    Billy,


    I would try to identify new technology and then invest in it. There is a definite trend toward wireless technology. The ability to have wireless cameras mounted around your property - so you can see your home from miles away. OnStar is an interesting technology. New cars are full of new tchnology. The way we watch TV is changing. 3D printing is a good choice for a profitable future. Energy from wind and water. Natural gas cars are a good bet. Robotics have taken over a lot of mundane tasks in manufacturing. Optical and fingerprint indentification systems that allow or deny access to secure areas.


    I agree that Amazon and Google will be around for a while. Remember that the younger you invest the more risk you can take - I would consider taking more risk for very young children. The future lies in technology, in my opinion.


    You can Google "best technology trends" to save yourself a lot of work


    I would love to see a "Star Trek Transporter" invented.


    A transporter is a fictional teleportation machine used in the Star Trek universe. Transporters convert a person or object into an energy pattern (a process called dematerialization), then "beam" it to a target, where it is reconverted into matter (rematerialization). The term transporter accident is a catch-all term for when a person or object does not rematerialize correctly.

    Dick Tracy two-way wrist radio 1946 - and wrist TV 1964


    On January 13, 1946,[3] The 2-Way Wrist Radio, worn as a wristwatch by Tracy and members of the police force, became one of the strip's most immediately recognizable icons, and may have informed later smartwatches. The 2-Way Wrist Radio was upgraded to a 2-Way Wrist TV in 1964. This development also led to the introduction of an important supporting character, Diet Smith, an eccentric industrialist who financed the development of this equipment. In a conspicuous coincidence, the idea of a radio built into a wrist watch played an important role in the story line of "Superman The Talking Cat" broadcast on the Mutual Broadcasting System on January 9 through 28, 1946 (episodes 878 through 891).


    In late 1948, a botched security detail led to the death of the semi-regular character Brilliant, the blind inventor of the 2-Way Wrist Radio (among other devices); whereupon Chief Brandon, Dick Tracy's superior on the police force and a presence in the strip since 1931, resigned in shame, and Pat Patton, heretofore Tracy's buffoonish partner, was promoted to police chief in Brandon's place. To take Patton's place as Tracy's sidekick, a new character, Sam Catchem, was introduced.


    AAPL is rumoured to announce one of these soon.

    Wind energy


    Timken Technology and Test Center Construction


    The project is a joint venture between Stark State College and the Timken Company. It is a 15,991 square foot building that will cost approximately $6.2 Million. The building will be located on the NE corner of the Frank and Shuffel intersection with its main entrance off of Frank Ave. The building will contain a high bay area with a special test machine that will be used to measure the durability of bearings up to 12 feet in diameter. These bearings will be used on wind turbines. There will also be some office space for the Timken Company on the first floor and a classroom, conference room, and restrooms on the second floor for Stark State College.

    For Christmas in 2011 (or '10?) I gave each of my children and oldest grandson 1 share of AMZN and 1 share of AAPL for about $500 each person. They are doing well. (I call it "the gift that keeps on giving").

    Ten shares of AAPL for the babe, not River, the other good looking blond. GOOG may be next.

    I've finally done it. After all these years I now believe AMZN is not a flash in the pan and will take over retail. Look at this chart. http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qui...eq=1&show=True They reported sales up 30% Y/Y as of noon Thanksgiving day. Here's some of the competition, same time period.

    WMT http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qui...ow=True&time=8

    TGT http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qui...ow=True&time=8

    HD http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qui...ow=True&time=8

    CVS http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qui...ow=True&time=8

    WBA http://bigcharts.marketwatch.com/qui...ow=True&time=8

    See the trend away from brick and mortar stores. HD being the Exception. These were taken directly from a list of the top US retailers.

    I bought AMZN yesterday. Just a few years late since I'm not too swift with internet buying. Should have listened to 27 year old daughter.............again re: goog, ebay and so on.

    I bought a little NFLX because Mark Cuban recommended it. He can be obnoxious but I think he's smart. It's done very well in just 14 days which of course is just blind luck. Plus a girl runner whose tweets I read said she went out for her run and then got back into bed and spent the morning watching Netflix. A lifestyle change for the young, methinks.

    Ah! Another cord cutter! Have owned NFLX for quite a while now and done well! Cut the cord and bought a ROKU stick. Feeling very liberated.
