AZZ caught my eye from a Motley Fool article (I find them in the strangest places..Fool articles, that is..in this case while checking on an alert about BOOM, which I also discovered through the Fools. ). One of the CAPs members posted that it was in the Hidden Gems newsletter and I like the pitch in the article. Lazy part satisfied, now looking for a pull back to satisfy the cheap. Today it is at 36.09. I’m setting an alert at 32 and hope to pick up at 30. At 5 stars and a dividend, I might consider higher.
I generally hate procrastination, especially when I do it. But now and then it works in my favor. In this case, I am catching up on emails from the last couple of months, and was reading a Motley Fool article. They mention one of their Hidden Gems picks (for free!) and I go to look into it, seeing that it just tanked from panic selling the day before. The pick is Dynamic Materials Corp. (BOOM). I have made money more often than not from following Foolish advise, and if I were up enough to take a higher risk tolerance I would buy immediately rather than setting a watch for drops and limit buy a little lower than Friday’s 14.27% drop.
Red Herring published their list this week. According to The Motley Fool’s Rule Breakers, Rule Makers: The Foolish Guide To Picking Stocks, part of follow the money is to see who the other investors are.
Some newsletters I take with a grain of salt, especially the one the mentioned LANC as a strong buy today (or last nigh, I am just reading it now). But this one looks like the analysts may have missed a bet. See, this newsletter never shows me stocks that are off 20$ from the analysts 1 year prediction, in fact it is almost always stocks that are close to the prediction or over it. And, he rarely points at a symbol I can pick up a 100 share for less than $500, my preferred speculation range.
But it still looks good. The Fool CAPS have it as a 2 star, but hard to find a bear commentary, so maybe the folks that don’t like it aren’t sure why, or maybe I missed something. If it was a 4 star, I’d buy with real money at 42.50. Instead, I’m setting an alert for 40 to review it then, and making the limit buy at $42.50 in my WSS account.
I had BZH on my alert list because they had some interesting movement going on. In today’s review of alerts, I ran across a Motley Fool article about TOL. Looking back at BZH, I didn’t see any significant inside ownership. I didn’t like the tone of the TOL quotes I found in the article. So I looked at the sector. KB Homes (KBH) is big where I live, so I can actually watch them up close to a degree. They have 24% insider ownership, and they pay a dividend. So, lazy part covered (thanks again to the Fools), I am going cheap by watching for a drop in the $16 neighborhood.
Ticker AOB is down today following the release of a fee-required report. Unless it is devastating, they should rebound. I actually took a little longer on my research on this and may have missed my entry point at 5.08. Will see. The Fool CAPs like it. I may have jumped too early, though, if askStockGuru is right.
