Yes folks it's that time again when you read Barrons over the stonedinvestors shoulder, filtering it's content through a battle hardened brain of discontent... Last week brought you fame and fortune with MKTY $2.30 to $2.90 (SI panic sell at $2.70), let us see what this week has in store... I'm only a few pages in when I realize- it's one of those sucky issues, this will be a true test. Cover story on IBM Yawn. Duke Energy spin off, I'm not running for utilities yet, Ralph Lauren a buy at $70, jesus Christo, I bought it at $43! what are they smoking over there in Barron's land? First possible tip: In the Preview section they highlight Thursday Dec 7th as being the start of a panel discussion 2 days on drug coated stents... I've been noticing some big mutual funds have been buying Boston Scientific lately: Vanguard Capital Opp recently went all in for 4 million shares! and Janus Contrarian recently bought 861,780 shares, furthermore my mother been asking about it and I consider her the best indicator of all! So Possible late week chip place on BSX. Interesting right to the right of the above piece is a sidebar column on Dem's Unlikely To Dim Nuclear plants Future, I've been thinking nuclear with oil staying so high and I noticed Exelon the nuclear utility coming across the tape at a healthy $61 bucks... there's a secret play here I'm just about ready to buy anyway- this might push me over the edge- The play is a stock called BW, Brush Engineering, they are the only makers of Beryllium which goes into reactors these days- more on this later if we choose it- lets move on... In Research Reports my current fave is mentioned Genomic Health- low price target $3 above current. I chased this bad boy all last week and it made my life very miserable> I missed a huge move, panicked in and despite a strong selloff in the general market, was lucky to net 8% out of it. This stock smells like a rainmaker to me... American Science & Engineering is mentioned, oh the tears! One of my great regrets... a BIG position at $12 for YEARS. AND I GAVE UP ON IT! You all know what happened next, it went vertical on me, now sporting a price target of $72. That was the kind of play a guy could retire on if I had held, that's why I'm still here. Can I pay up $61 bucks now for a stock I owned at $12? I don't think so... In Insider Purchases and sales one name stands out on the sales side Jarden 8 Insiders! That's such a large number I wonder if it's tied to their secondary, I'll do more work on that. Also Dicks Sporting Goods a stock I think is ripe for a fall> they've got 2 sellers as well 220,000 shares worth... In The striking Price it discusses some Dec Calls to position for after tax bounces and sure enough there's Boston Scientific Again! That's a subtle Barrons hint, two mentions one issue, I usually go with a " RULE OF 3 " If I happen to catch whiff of an upgrade of BSX early next week- that's going to push me in for sure. WOW that's it! The finalists are: BSX BW GHDX and short ideas: JAH & DKS... Back early next week with the initiation of the make money phase of The Barrons Game! Thanks For Playing Along!
