    Please keep away from CANSLIM...as it didn't make O'Neil a millionaire as well as many others. So, please, do not attempt imploying the method

  • Randall Lane claims in his new book that Jim Cramer took ex-baseball player Lenny Dykstra under his wing, "single-handedly [creating] the concept of Dykstra-as-financial genius." Now, Cramer is ensnared in a scandal, as Dykstra allegedly agreed to take $250K of stock in exchange for recommending it to subscribers of a newsletter he wrote for TheStreet.com.  [View news story]
    Cramer at 2:45 said the market was too high, then on his show said to ignore the doom and gloom...great hedge

  • Cree: Another Leading Stock in Trouble [View article]
    The LED story may or may not be entirely played out, but what strikes me funny is the folks on here believe they have more information than the large institutional players. LED is certainly a good thing, a product that is far superior and MUCH MORE efficient is great, but its a KNOWN story. Perhaps there is more to it, but at this point if street lights are LED isn't already played out?

    Take a look at AAPL, they have pumped out many more products than just the iPod, iPhone, and iPad...can it continue? Perhaps, if they can produce another revolutionary product perhaps.

    The point is you simply can not know more (as an individual) than the largest institutions who have MASSIVE research teams with more time and resources to hunt down these growth stories. It is best to simply follow their lead rather than to beat them at their own game.

    fxdudeinmia - I agree certainly, fundamental analysis is needed along side technical analysis. A key point is there is a tendency for the technicals to lead fundamentals when it comes to selling.

    Fluff article?

    The story is already known and CREE has already had a tremendous run already! Not too mention looking at the price and volume action in it recently hasn't revealed any more interest from institutions. Can it be an ultimate top? Perhaps, but if CREE wants to return to making new highs it'll need some serious support. Nothing has given the indication from institutions they are willing to step up and accumulate shares.

    History says we aren't in a cyclical bull market. After the Crash and subsequent fall of October 1929, it took until 1942 to form a new cyclical bull market (A GIGANTIC ONE). It took the market over 20 years to regain the high of 1929...20 years. Perhaps CREE knocks out a base here, but why are you willing to let your cash be at risk when the market has undergone MASSIVE distribution.

    Study the greats...Darvas, Livermore, Loeb, Dryfus, Wychoff, O'Neil. These traders would not be holding onto CREE, in fact, these guys would have bailed on this LEADING stock in April after it made a new high on very little volume (light volume new high is a indication of a stock topping).

    Look at Today's run, AAPL closes below the 50dma and lower volume. All the facts are this company is over-owned, everyone knows the story. It needs a shakeout, but what if you bought in Nov 2007 and rode the stock down? You only have a 60 point gain now, if you sold when the chart said to in Nov and waited for the stock to correct. You would have gotten in when the chart shaped up...somewhere between 90 and 100 dollars. Look at GOOG, China made up less than 5% of revenues? The fundamentals are still strong and the stock went from 600 to 480 a 20% correction so far.

    History shows stocks actually decline, look at JNPR CSCO MSFT fundamentals looked great in March of 2000.

    Who knows, we could get AAPL rallying on HUGE volume and would completely change things around. But, nothing up to this point (loose price action, below 50dma, distribution) has given a signal this could happen.
