Cheap Lazy Follow of ZLTQ

Found this one from the Stock Gumshoe.

Is It Bio Time Boys and Girls?

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

I came across BioTime, Inc. (BTIM) from my favorite newsletter by the Stock Gumshoe. 35% insider ownership, and most of them are rich from it at this point. Still, plenty of room for a long-term upside.

VASCO Data Security International Inc. (VDSI)

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

A Foolish pick from a tease for the Stock Advisor newsletter sniffed out by the Stock Gumshoe.  As coincidence would have it, there was a big jump in it today (or the Gumshoe is getting a lot more readers).

I’m going to lay back until the excitement dies down and look at VDSI again.

Spotlight Illuminates Illumina

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

I received a recent teaser from Motley Fool with the subject “Glimpse Obama’s favorite healthcare investment”. The headline in the content of the email itself was

The “$1,000 Genome” is about to be announced… and it’s already making smart investors rich!

This sounded vaguely familiar…and interesting. Being too cheap to pay for the newsletter (though I have always wanted to have the budget to do so), I did the Google thing to see what the Stock Gumshoe had to say about it. I found an article about a different promotion but seems to be the same stock, which is ILMN.

ILMN actually looks interesting, so I am adding it to the Cheap Lazy watch list (which, yes, I will one day publish on this site, as soon as I get over the second adjective).

PCP Oldy But Goldy Back on the Watch List

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

I love the content at the Motley Fool, and if I ever get rich I will subscribe to their newsletters (the newsletter is definitely lazy, and cheap is always relative). Meanwhile, I get their teaser ads and the ones that actually tease me I go look up on the Gumshoe site.

This particular tease really caught my eye, and the Gumshoe’s thinkolator came up with a stock I looked at a long time ago (Precision Castparts Corp. (PCP)) and should have bought then. Now, I will hold off for the drop that askStockGuru is looking for today, i.e., around $74.

Added RGLD to the Cheap, Lazy Watch List

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Based on the marvelous Stock Gumshoe article: “48 Karat Gold: An Investment Worth Twice Its Weight in Gold”

My back of the envelope buy price on this from looking at the Yahoo Interactive chart today is $40. Not bad, considering that Ask Stock Guru has today “Consider buy when the price retraces around 39.8 if you are aggressive. Alternatively, a conservative buy would be around 36.16″

Thanks to the Stock Gumshoe for recommending Woman With Portfolio

Hiding Your Money in a Hole

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

Eventually I will be listing out the sites and newsletters I subscribe to, and maybe set up links in the nav for them as well (still thinking this site through). One of my absolute favorites is The Stock Gumshoe.  His newsletter today gets around to a geothermal stock, after which he gives some good discussion on the ups and downs of those stocks.

Here are the Cheap Lazy Points (CLP) I have on alternative energy in general:

  • While I would personally like these companies to be booming, they aren’t and won’t be for at least five years
  • Eventually (when unknown), there will be profit in greener energy, which makes this a long term play
  • It is really, really hard to pick winners in the far future, or we would all have bought Microsoft and Walmart in the early 80’s

So, unless you have a crystal ball, a really good hunch, or willing to risk being the next Martha Stewart of investing, this is not an area I will generally be recommending putting much money in, especially if you need it anytime before the end of the next decade.
