    MJ: Read Conrad's article on my iPhone earlier this morning and then pounced on EPD, especially given that the RSI was screaming, buy, buy, buy.

    ####

    CFMS now trading at $25.05, and up over 30% on the day. I spoke with my broker this morning and he said he had shared dinner last week with the CEO of Stryker (SYK). Found CFMS interesting. I told him the ticker.

    Glad I took a risk on this high flyer...so far.

    Broker is also market neutral to slightly bearish right now, and is in cash accumulation mode. Broker is rarely ever bearish.

    Many MLPs are beaten up.

    Fired up a starter position of EPD at $29.68. Suggest for those interested in EPD to bring up the chart and look at the RSI.

    Also lurking on MMP and ETP.

    Sold all of my VDSI at $28.77. What a ride this one was. I should have sold sooner, but still netted some serious gains.

    AIB: The blood transfusion aspect baffled me, as I had thought that knee replacement was an in and out, same day deal.

    Thanks!

    This stock intrigues me, as someday I may need what they do.

    On Cramer tonight was the CEO of Conformis (CFMS).

    The IPO went off today at $15.00, opened at $17.69, closed at $19.25, and is up to $20.35 in extended trading.

    CFMS has a new disruptive technology in knee replacements, as they can customize knee replacements through 3D printing exact duplicates of any individual's knee, rather than using an off-the-shelf product for knee replacements.

    The current available off-the-shelf products have sharp edges while CFMS's has rounded edges, more like a normal knee.

    Having a more individualized knee replaced cuts down on the time a patient needs to stay in a hospital, as well as the number of blood transfusions needed.

    CFMS is also working on hip replacements, and the CEO thinks the FDA will approve the printing of hips before year's end.

    The CEO stated that his company has already printed over 30,000 replacement knees for patients in the US and Europe.

    The biggest problem for CFMS, the CEO stated, "...is getting the word out." The company is only marketing regionally. So there's plenty of potential growth.

    Hey, us boomers are getting older... Maybe I'll make enough to pay for my eventual knee replacement, and likely both hip replacements in the coming years.

    I'll be phasing in tomorrow.

    Well...Sold all of my GILD at @115.84. My $97.xx shares I bought months ago did pretty well. :-) Shares I just bought today didn't. :-(

    Though the MCAD is oversold, other indicators like the ending diagonal triangle that has formed, makes me think that GILD is going to continue down to around $112.

    I will be getting back in at some point, as I believe GILD will knock it out of the park when they report on July 27.

    MJ: I'm eyeing LRR Energy (LRE).

    Yields 10%. Zacks has a Strong Buy Rating.

    Trading at $7.68 and up 2.4%, all when most of the energy sector is having an off day today. I have to do more DD on this one before I pull the trigger.

    Added GILD at $116.27.

    For the past year, every time the MACD has gone this low, currently -88.60, GILD has rebounded.

    Mercy: This STO chart doesn't look very good:

    http://bit.ly/1f1n9yh

    50 day has rolled over and the 200 day is in free fall.

    Plus: Statoil (NYSE:STO) says it is suspending its Scarabeo 5 drilling rig because of overcapacity in its rig portfolio, the second such move in a week, as it continues to cut costs in the low oil price environment.

    The rig will be suspended next month after it has completed drilling of a well on the Kristin field in the Norwegian Sea, and will last until March 2016.

    A week ago, STO canceled a contract with the COSL Pioneer drilling rig 13 months before it expires, as the company had failed to find work for it amid an overcapacity of rigs.

    MB: Read it. Great article. Great ideas about protection.

    I bookmarked it for when the next recession inevitably comes.

    Thanks!

    Okay. Got it straight. Heck, I'm the one in the wrong, as I have met Sachiyo.

    Speaking of swirling, we had another tornado warning here this afternoon. There were some touchdowns, but no where near my home. Did get a partial snapshot of a menacing, swirling, dark cloud sweeping by just to the north.

    Fascinating that the local news had 1.1 inch hail falling just minutes away, with significant winds. Here? Barely any rain, winds were slight, and no round ice pummeling my sky windows.

    I'm so weary of the Greek situation that I've quit eating gyros.

    Not sure if people are already buying the Greek dip, but VDSI was down as much as $2.99 to $28.01; now trading at $29.91, and only down $1.09 right now.

    Dow's previous close was at $52.67. Opened at $51.85 and now is trading at $51.99, but traded as low as $51.50.

    I sold DOW Friday at $52.72 on Friday. Wish I would have pared down VDSI last Thursday.

    Lurking...
