Stoney Stocks The Full Check Up*

Discussion in 'Stocks' started by stonedinvestor, Feb 1, 2008.

  1. Well as we say goodbye to the correction/ bear market today lets take a step back and see how bad we are hurt. By mandate I have to be near fully invested 100% of the time and by self imposed mandate I let my trading account slide into this abyss. I don't like crowds and this panic sell off seemed crowded. In the case the crowd was right.
    On the 08 Portfolio-

    Aixtron AG (ADR) AIXG 12.38 +0.41 (3.43%) 1.10B

    This was yesterdays action. We see the outsized moves compared to the market in ELON- 5%, BGC- 3.6%, TRN- 4.4%, ENER- 3%, AIXG- 3.4% these are all the double downs this morning. We will kick kick the remaining EJ (already sold 1/2) & SLT to the curb unless they rip today.

    Overall since 1/1 purchases the market has collapsed on us and these names are underwater. I'm hanging in on most except I already sold 1/2 the EJ, amazingly for a 9% gain, the rest of course still plague me. On average I'm starting the year in a big hole. I'll give individual updates on some other names like WAVE soon that are holding up better but I wanted to clear the decks and refocus now If I don't regain half of these losses in two weeks time I will be very surprised.

    Lets hope for better times.

    I'm ok and I hope you all are too.

    Not sure why AMSC is not above it's in the portfolio another 8% mover that's four in a day today in a pretty light market... does the action follow me or do I follow the action?, I don't even know. I told you all , gimme a half way decent market, anything short of this endless debt panic and we can dig free, is it my fault I put these into play Jan 1? -


    As always it's in the timing.
