Rocco Pendola is an associate editor at Seeking Alpha focusing on technology and the sectors it overlaps with.
In addition to technology, I am interested in dividend growth and income investing.
I make references to music I'm obsessed with (e.g., Old 97s, Elliott Smith, Bruce Springsteen) in my writing. If you notice any of these references, it makes me happy.
Do you have the guts to invest in Wall Steet's most hated - yet profitable - sector? I am talking about roadkill stocks.
Each month, we hold our noses and scan the market for cheap... hated and ignored stocks. Companies that have been beaten down, run over and left for dead on the side of the road.
Odds are, this type of trading is NOT right for you. Most people don't like to get their hands dirty. They can't handle the risk. So they won't share in the reward.
And you know what? That's their choice and their problem.
For the select few who see the value in this research:
Our goal is to help you (safely) whip out a spatula… scrape one of these stinking possums off the freeway and cart it home…
Without getting the “stink-eye” from your wife – or frightening the kids.
We believe the market is most irrational and oddly, most generous to those who are brave, when it is scared out of its wits.
So if you agree, come on and grab a spatula and join us on the hunt for Wall Street Roadkill.
