Coal. Heard about SinoCoking and Coal from the Stock Gumshoe, and looking at the chart figure that it might pop again. It is having a short run now, but whether because of the bullish day or the push the prompted the pontification by the Gumshoe, who knows? Either way, I’ll wait for a drop and think again.
I like the business model description of CGEN found at an Investor Place article because I’ve spent some time with pharmaceutical and biotech companies and know how they rely on this type of data. But, like most articles I find there, they are touting the stock on the upswing and I need a dip to be cheap (lazy covered by them doing the research for me).
Ran across this big dividend play on the Stock Gumshoe site. I’m getting a little nervous about the stock price of high-dividend companies right now. Waiting for a pull back to get in on them. It may be awhile, but should work out well to stick my hand in the cookie jar while everyone is looking elsewhere.
If they are then AMBO could be a huge winner over the next couple of years. This one was sniffed out by the Stock Gumshoe, and I highly recommend his article where he dug it up.
Interesting pitch I read today had me looking at THQ. They used to make some cool games, and they are definitely volatile. If there is a serious pre-Black Friday panic in the market it might drop low enough to tempt a cheapskate like myself.
It was a summer of paranoia, so I’m expecting Apollo Group (APOL) to beat analysts expectations and take a brief jump up after the earnings announcement in October. But I also don’t see this as a good long-term hold if unemployment has not dropped, because then the government finance incentives will trickle away the stock will go back down. Just my guess, place your bets the way you see fit. I’m going to sell on October 13 if the jump I predict occurs.
