I picked up some SWKS today. Earnings come out tomorrow. This has been one of my favorite trades to be in and out of this year. We’ll see how things go tomorrow before I decide what happens next, but the general plan is to hold at least until Friday and no longer than the end [...]
I closed out the SWKS last week and only got a couple percent gain out of it. I’m back off the margin and have some cash in my trading account. Last week I used some cash in my trading account to average down my Alcoa (AA) to $13.42. Earnings come out after hours today. Today [...]
Here we go again, and this time it’s tech season!
SWKS got under 19 faster than I was expecting. I already got to pick some up at 18.68.
I had a busy July and August which resulted in not all of my buys and sells getting a blog entry. I think to make things easier going forward I’m going to save the routine moves for a larger monthly or quarterly update post but continue to post the exceptions at the end of the [...]
Looks like I picked a reasonable spot this morning to get some more money in. I picked up some SWKS at 19.79. I’m still looking for 26.28 in SWKS. I picked up some BAC at 6.86. I’m already up about 10%. I’m looking for it to rally to 9.50 where I’ll sell it.
I picked up SWKS when it reached 21.90, and set it to sell when it gets back to 26.28. +20%, eventually.
I followed my short term plan and sold my SWKS on a nice up day today. I locked in a biggy sized 5% gain. As I think I mentioned before I picked up a little too much a little too fast as I was buying back into it on it’s way down in June. It’s [...]
I sold off around 15% of the VFORX in my Rollover IRA and used the funds to pick up some of Cramer’s 5 year stocks : Buy IBM @ 171.76, MMM @ 95.01, HON @ 59.23, DD @ 53.83, and F @ 13.7999. Say what you will about the personality. If you pay attention regularly [...]
I averaged down my SWKS today to an average price @ 23.59. It might not be the best timing and I need a few things to go my way in the near term for this not to get ugly, but I’m holding for the long haul unless it happens to have a random great day.
