Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (MLNX)

I found MLNX in my regular review of the Price % Losers on Yahoo! Finance.  The strategy is to find something at the bottom of a short roller coaster ride, though once in awhile I find a solid stock that I might keep there. This one sits in the middle.

Buy Who You Pay

One person taught me to buy stock in the companies you are already sending money to. This way you should get some back. I didn’t like the price of National Grid (NGG) when I was a customer, but a Motley Fool article I ran across had me given them a new look from afar and I’m in.  Now let’s see how it works out.

One Things Leads to Another

Some of my best returns have come from stocks I run across while checking up on other stocks I’m thinking of dumping. Case in point today is I ran across Synta Pharmaceuticals Corp. (SNTA) today in a Motley Fool article that also mentioned the stock I was researching (and no decision on that one, yet, so not mentioning it here). A low-price bio tech that is profitable and not buried in debt. Go figure. Volatile price, though, so I’m going to set a limit buy on a drop and hope it doesn’t drop much further, bounces back up, and skim so “free” stock out of the ride.

Only Jet Where I’m Never Blue

I have an eye on Jet Blue (JBLU) only because it is my favorite airline to fly. Of course, I’m still cheap (one of the reason I like flying with them), so I’m hoping for a temporary set back in the stock price to buy.

Not HOTT Post

When I get around to having the Cheap, Lazy portfolio posted and maintained on this site, I won’t need to make silly entries like this on that is not about Hot Topic Inc. (HOTT) to make tracking easier for me. Meanwhile, I hope it makes it easier for you.

Trickle Back Economics

Pay your taxes then invest in a company that pays dividends on rent received from the government. One of those ideas that is tempting without the good pitch from the Motley Fools CAPS Weekly Stock Idea for GOV.

DragonWave Inc. (DRWI)

Good pitch on the Motley Fool CAPS Weekly Stock Idea for DRWI. The company’s current challenge is all of it’s business being for one customer, something that smaller companies usually suffer from. If they can pick up one more major customer, they will sky rocket. If they don’t, they could fizzle soon.

Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. (PSUN)

Ok, I hate when I set an alert on a stock and forget to blog why I did it. Well, this will be my reminder for PSUN. An alert hit at $3 today. Looking at the chart, it seems they have a roller-coaster history that generally bottoms at this time of year and climbs up to December. Food for thought. Retail is not my favorite sector right now. Still, tempted to buy at 2.80 and sell at 5.00

EI DuPont de Nemours & Co. (DD)

I made money with Dupont in the last big dip, and looking to get in on the next dip.  Setting an alert for $30.00.

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMP)

Came up today in an InvestorPlace article.  The numbers on Yahoo! Finance look good, so I’m in when it hits $62 on a pull back.
