    Probably overdone. Will put on watch list for a possible bounce on Thursday's open.

  • Time For Investors To Take Back Our Streets. Here's How [View article]
    You state or seem to imply that volatility is high, but the VIX went from over 40 last year to below 15 this summer. It is interesting that we seem to be climbing a mostly Eurozone-induced wall-of-worry, and yet the fear index is so low. Any feedback?

    I have been doing vertical spreads mostly on $100+ stocks like CRM and CF and GOOG, with nice gains the last couple of weeks despite the low VIX. It's tough trying to "beat the system" these days.

    (I would highly recommend to learn about and practice vertical spreads, etc.)

    Did your company allow indexing? I take it you're not a "Bogle-head".

    Nice 10 point pop. Halted also in the middle of the rumor pop.

    It would have been helpful to spell out the actual price ranges (gyrations) the stock went thru last year: over 300 down to almost 60.

  • How To Sell At The Top (And Buy At The Bottom)  [View instapost]
    Interestingly, I have the value on $URBN & $DNKN pegged at around $15 which is at a 50% discount to the current market price on both those names. Your shorts may work out quite nicely!

    I like your dollar cost averaging approach. Good article.

  • 6 Fumbles You May Want To Pick Up [View article]
    Correction to above comment: [LULU] then appreciated almost 40% (not 50%) in about 3 weeks!

  • 6 Fumbles You May Want To Pick Up [View article]
    Perhaps you put out an article on this previously, but LULU gave investors three (3) chances to enter in the low 40's during the last quarter (drastically underperforming the broader indexes, but way outperforming in previous quarters - similar to your thesis above). It then appreciated 50% in about 3 weeks! The corrections were, I believe, mostly caused by the perception of news as being "bad" pertaining to inventory levels and so forth.

    Anyway, thanks for the article, I like the way you think. The fast correction last week in QCOR based on an article that was GOING to come out was a real head-scratcher. I have been following and trading this one since it was around $7.00. I really like the numbers on ZOLL also (another medical stock). I've been a medical professional since the 1986, so I'm normally very skeptical of medical stocks, but QCOR and ZOLL certainly captured my attention.

    Here's the pullback (comment above)!

    The last rally-back formed a H&S unfortunately.

    It is however near the lower median line channel, see chart posted:

    Had plenty of time to get in...nice volume surge on that breakout, and the fundies remind me of DECK about 3 years ago, and CF 18 months ago (it went from 80 to 190!)
