I am an independent trader/investor. I like to look for opportunities to long and short equities with specific focus on companies that have gone public within the last four years.

  • Picks in Review - NQ, GNC, MKTG, VHS, KIOR
    Let's look at some of my past picks and see how they performed.

    While the broader market fell dramatically since the beginning of August, my picks have performed extremely well.  Below are the results.

    On 8/2/11, I suggested going short on NQ and GNC.  NQ closed at 7.75 on Aug 2.  Today it's at 6.47.  It traded as low as 5.97 on 8/8/11.  GNC closed 24.42 on Aug 2.  Today it's at 23.52.  It traded as low as 21.51 on 8/9/11. 

    On 8/5/11, I suggested going long on MKTG at 12.70.  Today it's at 15.12.  It traded as high as 15.99 on 8/10/11.

    On 8/10/11, I suggested going long on VHS at 12.63 and KIOR at 10.04. VHS trades at 14.54 and as high as 14.71 on 8/15/11.   KIOR trades at 10.94 and as high as 11.80 on 8/11/11.

  • KOS - Kosmos Energy to Rally?
    The oil services sector has been smashed recently.  IEZ went 69.39 on 7/26/11 to 50.35 on 8/8/11.  KOS went along with the broader market and dropped from its IPO price of 19.50 to 10.61 on 8/10/11.  This is way over done. I believe the stock is poised for a solid recovery.  I like the stock at this level of 12.50.  Go long on KOS.

  • KIOR BioFuel?
    KIOR is one of the companies backed by Kosla Ventures.  Vinod Kosla was a co-founder of Oracle's SUN Microsystems.  This company went public on 6/24/11 at $15.  Today it's at $10. 

    KiOR, a development stage company, focuses on operating as a renewable fuels company. The company, through its proprietary biomass-to-renewable fuel technology platform, converts non-food biomass into hydrocarbon-based oil. It processes its renewable crude oil into gasoline and diesel blendstocks for use in vehicles on the road.

    I like the company at this level.  Long the stock!
