  • Lucky 13 Buys: \\\\ +43.87% //// in 9 Weeks 7 comments
    Sep 16, 2009 6:40 PM | about stocks: OSIR, UNG, PRXL, ONB, SPPI, GTXI, ASTX, CLNE, SWC, ARIA, TOMO, FSYS, ONTY
    On July 7, I introduced the Lucky 13 Buys to those who follow this blog regularly.  

    One investor, Hustle617, gave it a shot and bought some of the Lucky 13 Buys.  As result, he has earned some very impressive gains over the past two months.  Nice work my friend! 

    Since I just read his nice comment Hustle came to mind first; but others have also reported that they've been able to achieve equally impressive results on their investments in ARIA, SPPI, HEAT, GTXI, and others. 

    Congratulations to those who, like Hustle, paid attention, listened, and gave me a shot!  Well done all!

    Data: Closing price from 7/7/09 To 9/16/09

    Hustle: In response to your recent comment, I still like (NASDAQ:GTXI) over the longer-term.  In near-term, however, shares may come back some.  Thanks for the very nice comment.  I appreciate your trust and support!  Congrats again on the impressive gains - your comment made my day bro.  

    Seeing others succeed here makes this all worth doing.  It's very humbling to say the least.

    Long: SPPI & ARIA

    Great 2 articles today. I bought FSYS before I started reading your articles. I bought at 12 sold at 22. Wish I kept it, haha. Bought HEAT at 7.13 sold at 8.50, needed the money, lol.


    Not selling SPPI anytime soon. I'll sell 25% of my position at 15. Yes 15, to be honest, I dont think its far away......


    Looking to add more ARIA soon, something about this company.. Gives me a tingly feeling.


    The market is making a little nervous, think were due for a decent pullback. But thats why I love biotech, I think its very safe. I also like green, although I dont agree with all these new technologies and still think oil is the only way. Some of them do present good investing opportunity's. Maybe thats just my big oil conservative roots, haha.

    Author’s reply » Dave:


    Both my grandfather and great-grandfather were oil men - two totally different scenarios. Great managed riggs.


    At the end of his career, my Grandfather was working as a v-p of marketing and sales for DX Oil, which was later acquired by Sunoco.


    Not much into gloabal warming on this end. My views are also conservative. That, however does not spread to oil. I like new technology, innovation and opportunity. While Natural Gas is trading at multi-year lows, I believe Nat Gas represents one of the best opportunities the market has to offer right now - next to SPPI. :-)


    Investing in drug development is obviously my core strategy. It worked very well during the downturn as the industy is viewed as a defensive one. On the pullback scenario, I think it depends. Financials will come back, but tech may do well. Some biotechs are going to come back very soon. I think such action, however, will exclude SPPI. In fact, I like both ARIA and SPPI right here as they did not participate in the run up.


    After the recent run-up, it is hard to argue with taking some profits, i.e. cover the initial cost basis.


    Hey, but what do I know?


    Do you invest with options?

    Ive been kicking around getting into options..... Don't know as much about them as I would like before sticking money into them....


    Im all for new technologies, ex FSYS. At the present time however, nothing competes with oil. Being that I just returned from Europe and seeing 9 dollar gasoline I can understand why FSYS does soooo well there. But in the states, $2.75 gas is cheap in my opinion. And I drive a F350 Diesel. haha

    Author’s reply » If Congress passes a stand-alone Nat Gas bill (outside Cap and Tax), the game changes. That dip wad Harry Reid (D, NV) indicated he might write a stand alone Nat Gas bill. Pickens and CLNE's CEO are optimistic. Plus, the soothsayer Al Gore likes the idea of using Nat Gas. All of these things, when combined, bode well for UNG, CLNE, FSYS, CHK, XTO, NGS among many others. CLNE and FSYS will be the big winners. This explains why I like these two firms best.

    CLNE does look very interesting, along with FSYS, and I am kicking myself over selling that a little prematurely. HEAT too for that matter!


    I just find myself so torn over all these alternative energy companies. I recently sold an interesting solar company ASTI that I bought back in April at 3.90 and sold at 8. I love the technology, I just cant grasp the idea of people or companies upgrading to this technology yet, especially in this recession. And I kind of apply that same logic to the whole sector. Yes im generalizing the whole industry, and I know there are a million exceptions, but that is where i'm at.


    When I drive around the southern tier of NY and see these new windmills, I know its gonna take 25+years to make back the money in energy in order to pay for these things. Luckily big ole Uncle Sam comes in with huge government subsides. And any time I see the government involved in a industry my gut tells me to run. If a company cant succeed on its own without sucking on the government teat (sp?) it just makes me wounder, why.


    Did that rant make sense, or is it my anti government, evil conservative values showing themselves again. haha
