    I think it will serve some of my readers to know my price targets for the stocks I follow. Some I have written about extensively and others I have mentioned following or buying into. The table below will demonstrate all of my positions current and closed. I follow technology and water related investments in general, large and small, from all areas of the investing spectrum.

    I do run a more concentrated portfolio than the general consensus, following a rather large amount of research on the names I am in. I do take measures to limit losses (such as in XYL) though.

    I am nowhere near perfect and do not bat 1000, although my ideas are described in my articles, stocktalks and comments for anyone who is interested.

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Tom

    Thanks for sharing.
    Typo: IBM long, target 130 ???
    Also if your bullishness on QCOM is short term, do you have a target or potential negative catalyst concern?

    Author’s reply » Hey Westercoaster,

     

    I fixed the IBM target, my mistake. The QCOM article was mainly to dispute the share drop due to the litigation expense. I wanted to make it clear that I did not think it would hinder the future for the company. More of a dispute related article than a full blown analysis.

     

    Best,
    Tom
