    In addition to narrating model portfolio holdings (whose additions/subtractions and overall allocation are reported), you may now quickly find the best and worst calls. Remember: asset allocation is an important factor in determining returns for an investment portfolio.

    Theravance (NASDAQ:TBPH) is rebounding. ChipMOS (NASDAQ:IMOS), a Taiwanese firm undergoing a share collapse restructuring to maximize value, is up in November:

    Has the bleeding in Linn Energy (NASDAQ:LINE) ended? WTI crude prices are testing lows, so buying LINE is still a gamble. Shorting at this time is, too but the bias for the stock is to the downside.

  • Of The Two Biotech Picks, This One Is Up 34 Percent

    DIY - doing it yourself, being self-taught, and being an individual stock picker also requires knowing a sector very well. Biotech, for instance is both exciting and rewarding, if you have a bit of science background and understand how to interpret basic statistics.

    I am pleased to finally see Theravance Biopharma (NASDAQ:TBPH) rebound. The more time passes, the more likely the company will release strong data for its studies. GSK's (NYSE:GSK) lax sales force may be forgiven too. With that headwind out of the way, TBPH is rallying. It is performing better than Valeant.

    The last alert for TBPH for subscribers was in August:

  • Sell Apple, In One Caption

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is a great company, with cash pouring out from sales of iPhone, year after year. Two incoming (rumored) mis-steps ahead:

    1. Removing the earphone jack to make phones thinner (lightning-plugged earphones are of course required. Buy an adaptor.

    2. OLED display.

    This sums up the Apple business model:

    Humor aside, Universal Display (NASDAQ:OLED) is one of ten stocks mentioned in today's newly introduced rapid round.
