    For ETFC, RRI and LCC the exit price used was the stop loss we set last week.
    Total Investment in Slumdogs =$47,000
    Value of Slumdog Portfolio April 27, 2009 =$50,661
    Value of Slumdog Portfolio May 1, 2009 =$53,785
    Weekly Gain in % =6.17%

    We had a couple of fallouts. ETFC and LCC fell out due mostly to my stop loss parameter. LCC does not have a Sell on either daily or weekly charts even though it exceeded its stop loss parameter and thus exited our portfolio! ETFC is still a buy on weekly charts even though the daily charts have turned ugly. I think ETFC is still a hold and it is quite possible that the daily charts will improve and soon generate a Buy signal on ETFC. If they do we will go purchase ETFC and put it back in our Slumdog portfolio. RRC was one of those slumdogs that quite didn't make it!

    There were a couple of notable additions to the Super Select list. Remember, Super Select slumdogs are those that are a Buy on both daily and weekly charts. The new additions to the Super Select hall of fame are ATPG and LVS.

    The new Slumdog portfolio includes one new addition. Here is the new Slumdog Millionaire portfolio.
