  • Best Ideas For 2014: Long GCVRZ [View article]
    Chris, Thanks for pointing out an interesting risk-reward situation. As with all FDA approvals, getting in early is very risky not just because the treatment might be turned down but, also, because many times more information is requested, thus stretching out the time frame for recouping your investment. A method that I have employed on a few occasions, is to invest prior to FDA approval, only 25% to 50% of what I would consider a normal position. Then, if approval is given, invest the rest for a full position. Again, Thanks for your work on this, Smitty

  • Iridium Communications: A $5 'Buffett-Like' Value Stock With A 15% Earnings Yield [View article]
    Hey TiM, thanks for the report on IRDM. I bought it last week based on some analysts predictions for price appreciation in 2014. I particularly like your short term analysis for the end of 2012 to the start of 2013. I will be out of this stock in 2-3 weeks if your scenario plays out. Smitty

  • Cisco: Unloved, Undervalued, Misunderstood And Loads Of Income Stream Potential [View article]
    Ryan, Thanks for the fun article. I, too, enjoy playing with numbers! You stated the trading range of $15 - $30 and I think that is what we should focus on with CSCO. I have traded in and out of the stock with three round trips over the last 8 years. I am again long and hope to see the stock break above $30 in the next year and a half. If not, hopefully I can take another profit by selling. Smitty

  • 14.32% HCP Upside Howls For Champion Dividend Dogs [View article]
    Fredrik, Happy Thanksgiving! Every time that I read one of your articles, I am amazed at the detail that you put into your work. I own a number of the stocks that your screens produced as noteworthy, alas, two of them are showing negative predictions for 2014. Now I have to do my work. Thanks, Smitty

  • This Oversold High Dividend Stock Goes Ex-Dividend This Week [View article]
    DD, I invested actual dollars in your strategy and I am happy to say that it gave me a nice profit. I purchased the stock at $12.00 and sold the call for $0.45. I also collected one dividend of $0.20. The stock was called away yesterday (Friday). After commissions, I netted 9.14% on this position in 10 weeks. I wish that all of my investments worked out this well. Thank you, Smitty

  • Challenge-Do Not Overlook These Future Dividend Challenger Stars-Part 3 [View article]
    Rudester, I may be misunderstanding your point about people covering their short positions to harvest year-end profits. I think that you buy the stock to close a short position, so, in this case it should drive the price up a little bit. Please correct me if I am wrong. Thanks, Smitty

  • Two Crazy-Cheap $5 Stocks To Benefit From China's Initiatives For Its Middle Class [View article]
    Stanley, Thanks for suggesting these two small companies. I have also decided that it is probably time to put some money into Chinese stocks. I made some money back in '07 and '08 and then got burned in '09 by some frauds.
    If I can suggest another stock to you, I have been purchasing KNDI on dips. They produce Electric cars and are building out a rental system with charging stations in buildings that they own. Of course, there is the usual "Muddy Waters" trash talk.
    Again, Thanks for the two ideas, Smitty

  • Pengrowth Energy Posts Another Solid Quarter [View article]
    Albert, Thanks for the follow-up article on PGH. I originally bought this stock for the monthly income and I have been pleasantly surprised by the increasing share price this year. It should be emphasized for those who are new to PGH that the $0.04 dividend is in Canadian funds not US$. Bigsmitty

  • Organovo: Love The Technology, Like The Company, But Wait To Buy The Stock [View article]
    drmoose, I was fortunate enough to get in at a few cents over $6 and I also just sold 1/2 of my position. The past 2 weeks have been unbelievable with the share price increasing everyday and the volume increasing at the same time. I don't know when it will end but I am enjoying the ride. Bigsmitty

  • Bank Of New Jersey: A Thriving Community Bank With 30% Upside [View article]
    Ong, A very informative article and I appreciate all of the tables and charts. I believe that you have an error in the population size of Bergen County. You list it as 919 Million people. I could be wrong but it is probably less than one million people. Thanks, Bigsmitty

  • Super Dividend Champions (October 2013) [View article]
    John, Terrific article. I would not have thought of ranking the Champions this way, but I love the thinking behind the list. Since you asked, I would like to see the Contenders and Challengers ranked in the same fashion. I appreciate the time and effort that you put into the list. Thanks, Bigsmitty
