  • SoL #31: End Of Month, End Of Quarter

    Today marks the end of both March and Q1 of 2014. This year so far has marked a huge uptick in volatility from 2013, though stocks have still made small gains.

    I am slightly concerned by this volatility, but I also think the market should be skeptical so as not to form a bubble. I hope that stocks trade on fundamentals and that good companies outperform mediocre ones.

  • SoL #30: My Month

    This past month (or indeed the whole year-to-date) has been very volatile. I am now approxiamtely flat this month, due to a rally in the first half and a subsequent decline.

    I did, however, get some bargains on stocks recently, which has really lowered my cost basis.

  • SoL #29: What Do We Do About Gilead?

    One of my favorite stocks, Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD), has recently slipped below $70. It has declined significantly over the last few weeks along with a sector-wide, biotech dip.

    Gilead is an extremely attractive stock and even more so at these levels. I have only added to my position and have lowered my cost basis on it significantly. When the inevitable climb comes, those who stuck by this solid stock will profit.

    Disclosure: I am long GILD.
