  • Minco Gold Corp - Barchart's Chart Of The Day [View instapost]
    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.

  • Is Facebook An Investable Stock? [View article]
    AJ Clausen -- I guess you commented without reading the article - My point is on IPOs you really don't have enough info to base an opinion - A lot of people bought in on the IPO on hype alone and got burned. The stock has now traded for a year and you now have not only a years worth of trading activity without the Underwriting groups' price manipulation but you also have analysts and the Publics' recommendations and opinions to consider.

    By investable I'm not saying buy - I'm saying you now have enough info to decide

    Technical analysis is really not that complicated -- It all boils down to the change in price. In the end only 3 things drive a change in price : Changes is Revenue, Earnings and the Price Earnings ratio - which is really just a Optimism/Pessimism ratio of the validity of the other two

    Alec2003 - I've been investing for over 40 years and found 2 area where I can avoid the majority of the Big Boys
    1 - Stocks under $19
    2- Market Caps under $1 billion

    Because of issues of scale you can invest there safely
