  • Alcoa: Reports In-Line, But Misses Revenue Estimates [View article]
    Hello all,
    I think the point is well taken that with valuations such as they are in this market it will take a near flawless Q not to be punished. I see it is only off .55% in after hours so far so Alcoa may get a pass on the revenue miss but I am watching closely for any misses in Q1.

    Being out sick gave me some time to crunch some figures as I often like to do and thought I would post them for anyone interested. I follow about 20 different contributers on Seeking Alpha and hope that all know how much I appreciate their contributions.

    Those who give free expert advice deserve the occassional pat on the back. I have been following Pragmatic for many months and appreciate each and every post.

    During my down time I calculated the returns on 4 weekly expert picks from David Brown on Seeking Alpha and I think the results are worth mentioning. Each Monday, after the market he details what the current market is rewarding and then gives 4 expert picks from a StockFinder program he uses.

    This is what I calculated for those who are interested.......(I like making money) These are based on a buy/hold strategy w/out dividend yield (I don't have THAT much time on my hands)
