    9772581 you are entirely correct -- that's why I want to to read my post closely. I do not buy because of analysts good forecasts. However, If I like a stock and they don't then I double check my own research. They may be wrong but if they are advising all their clients to dump something, then it's hard for the stock to go up. Does that make sense?

    So I guess your advice is to get your investment ideas for anonymous sources who post neither their name nor their investment experience?

    Biffbifford - I never set price targets. I choose a stock if it has had advances in at least 50 % of the trading days in the last month, put in a caution if the stock drops below it's 50 day moving average and dump if it drop to 10% off its recent high or below its 100 day moving average. You succeed if you combine stock picking with a disciplined portfolio management.
