I lost a few on those and don't track them anymore but nice going. Not much diversity but good move. Congratulations.
Yes, Pretty much zero diversity but not a large wager either. It is gambling for sure. I'm always torn between taking a profit and buying back in cheaper and doing it again or just riding the overall trend. I guess if they raise the LT cap gains rate to more closely match short term rates I'd probably trade more often.
My stop loss kicked in at 25.50, I did pick up more of it last week, looking for 24.50 now. I like roller coaster stocks like this. Sometimes its a week , sometimes its a couple months but theres usualy a good 5 to 8% to pick up. In again at 21.65. Like i said Gambling!!
And it looks like you got in (at least some of it) at 21.65? That's a nice 31% gain. Have you taken any profit? You think it'll keep going up as oil/gas prices go up?
I sold 15,000 shares of BPOP at 1.91 (for a 28% gain since I posted 3 months ago) then bought 10,000 back at 1.83 this week. It closed today at 1.91, after making it up to 1.97. I think I'll sell again at 1.98 or so then buy back in at 1.88 or so, I expect it'll bounce around a bit before busting 2.00.
SSD was up again today, but that one I think I'll just hold for a while.
