  • My picks KFN and ETFC skyrocket! Buy STP now.
    Call it am amazing intuition but I picked KFN at 2 and change just a handful of days back and ETFC at $1.38 just a few days back. Over the last two trading they have skyrocketed. Today when the Dow was down nearly 100 points both these picks were up 13 and 14% each.

    I hasten to bring to your attention a battered solar stock - STP. Suntech Power. STP is best described as the Walmart of Chinese solar manufacturers. Very well run company. Great expansion plans. Will compete with FSLR head to head soon in the U.S. You can do your homework by just browsing SeekingAlpha and you will find that this company has solid fundamentals.

    Have no doubt that Obama will push his agenda on solar power and by year end there will be major solar projects announced nationwide. STP will benefit.

    Consider buying STP at these depressed prices.

  • SYNM and RTK - Biofuel Plays
    Watch these two carefully. There is a massive undercurrent forming below these two equities and they could have a nice run-up. You see, both RTK and SYNM make what is known as bio-fuel. They take waste (literally) and convert that to fuel. RTK claims that the quality of the fuel is good enough to power even jet engines not just ground transportation. SYNM is actually the leader here but RTK has got all the publicity.

  • ETFC -- another speculative play of mine finally takes off!
    I accumulated a good position in ETFC in the $1 plus range and was patiently waiting to be rewarded. On Friday I got the first installment of my reward when ETFC rocketed up over 14% in just one day and that too in a down market. As the economy improves ETFC's mortgage portfolio will perform better. They greatly improved their capital position with the recent debt swap offer. True, there was dilution but the market cap still does not represent ETFC's potential. ETFC is also an acquisition play in that another discount brokerage could snag them and then perhaps be able to unload their mortgage portfolio. Six months back it would not have been possible to unload the mortgage portfolio but the market has improved greatly since then.
