    Dec 23, 2009 1:07 PM

    I guess every 10 years, a fed Chief must go crazy and create breakouts galore.

    1999, 2009, and I await Fed Chief Geithner in 2019

    Enjoy these 30 if you are the buy the breakout type of trader.

    Thanks TraderMark....some good stocks on the list. I wonder if you ever post those breaking out to the downside for hedging. HUM in particular.

     

    I appreciate all you do on Seeking Alpha.

     

    Happy Holidays.

    In the spirit of Christmas I thought maybe I would post a few of my favorite longs and short going into 2010 and maybe list some of my favorite publishers on Seeking Alpha (although I enjoy them all). No one may care but I have received so much from the site that I thought if I could help someone make a little extra profit from an idea then I would be happy.

     

    Longs (calls)
    SYNA
    STEC
    NEP
    NMM
    NE
    AIRM

     

    Shorts (puts)
    PALM
    OGXI
    PENN
    STI
    OSTK

     

    Contributers: (I appreciate all)
    TraderMark
    Phil Davis
    David Brown
    Michael Johnston
    Suna Reyent
    Adam Sharp
    and Many Many more.

     

    Thanks to all who contribute both as writers and the community who discusses the topics.

     

    Great Site!

    Author’s reply » Hi AR,

     

    I've attempted various shorts the past 4-5 months, effectively each one gets called away with a stop loss within a week. So until the market starts rewarding shorting it's not something I've been actively looking at. In a more normal market where many stocks are faltering concurrent to many stocks gaining, I'd be doing what you ask. This is not a normal market.

     

    All in good time.

    Very good point TM,

     

    My amateur concern is always that I won't know when that big 5% correction is going to hit so I try to keep a little put action going as insurance versus my long positions. I consider it insurance premium that while limiting some gains lets me sleep well at night. But I agree whole heartedly with you. If I had your feel and knowledge of market direction I could probably time that better.

     

    Thanks and happy holidays.
