I challenge myself to find one investment idea out of each Barons. Sometimes if it's for my bigger account, perhaps a foreign stock or a dividend play, I'll go with the Barons research> but more often than not what I like to do is hope some of my past favorite stocks- the ones I have permanently lodged in my minds computer - are referenced in the barons which will stimulate me to take another look. This week it was tough. In the Insider buying highlight Mech Tech was mentioned 2 insiders 145,000 shares. I like alternative energy hydro battery stuff but have been burned before Street.Com 2nd Opinion just went to a buy at $2.25. the 200 day is $2.78 it's been back from the dead for 40% gain this month but no one noticed> real low volume. Will Barons bring in the volume? This may be an incredibly leveraged play from $2.25-$2.75 or a real investment if it can close over $3... DDSS OH NO NOT AGAIN Labopharm> I could go on for day here folks I won't I'm ALL TOO familiar with this Canadian outfit and those who push this stock all the time. It's highlighted in the biggest movers: $6.00 plus $1.85 hummm. Added to an index but that seems like OLD news it's probably a BIRD FLUE BET being made and yes we have bird flue in the news again. This stinker has always had the strongest houses behind them> a quick look shows no less than 10 buys up from 6 three months ago. hmmm. Honestly- this stock could and should be $9. This will merit some phone calls monday. A questioning of Vertex's value mentions my guy Idenix I already own a bunch I'm slightly underwater could be a buy more situation. I remember a really good Marcel pump in Business Week about Document Security Systems DMC- all about protecting documents and money from forgery in the digital age. Never catches volume and started to go down so I stopped tracking it. Decent earnings and it's highlighted by Barons biggest movers up big as well. Small float. 60,000 shares traded pushed it up $1.85. to $11.30 Finally! A stock i already have in the loading dock awaiting pullback- Spartech SEH. They were named in a list of in Schwab's highest rated stocks- that reinforces my BUY inclination and lets me know it's not overpriced despite a big move! Finally got my $3 worth out of the Barons Game! Well, here's the list: MKTY DDSS IDIX DMC SEH WOW what a motley bunch! All but Spartech risky as hell... but we'll track em at the open and let you know if we jump on any. The market pro's tell you to go on out and buy Microsoft & Apple... Stonedinvesting is something quite different.
