    3. Ed, Maybe in the after-life. In the meantime, I enjoy looking. Big picture drags me away from the absurd din almost constantly bleeting at me here on Earth.

  4. PHOT lookin' good, Kid. Haven't quite doubled my money, but things are looking up. Three for three, Kid. I just can't go wrong counting on your huge, bulging brain working for me.

    I am now pondering just how long to hang on to this stuff. Any thoughts emanating from your enormous, gargantuan cerebrum, Kid?

    1. Fredd, No question the MJ stocks are over-valued. But that never stopped a market from being in a bull phase.

      Best advice is to watch levels, PHOT blasted off (Broken out is the actual term) from 45 cents. It blasted off again from 60 cents yesterday. Today looks like normal profit taking in the stair step pattern you see in the chart. Forced to answer ;-) I will say don't let it go below 60 cents since it bounced there today. Momo stocks can drop fast if they drop below a perceived 'support level' and that is now 60 cents.

      I'm happy to jawbone it anytme btw, Like today just put a comment somewhere on one of my posts.

      I know you only wanted one name, but I will tell you I'm also into MCIG (electronic cigs and now electronic MJ cigs) and last quarter they actually made money. Worth a look. Today, they broke out from what is called a cup and handle formation. Very popular with traders. And they actually made some money! Be cautious on this one if you play below 80 cents, the breakout point.

      Another idea for you is PLUG, or FCEL, or BLDP - hydrogen fuel cell players. PLUG has significant contracts with WalMart, Kroger, Volkswagon and /or Mercedes to supply hydrogen fuel cell lift trucks (1700+ for WalMart) and Plug states they will be profitable in 2014 and more big customers to come on in 2014. So the electric lift truck heads to a hydrogen refill station in the warehouse for a 2 minute fillup and it back on the job, instead of a overnight recharging station visit.

      There are a lot of Big logistics warehouses and if these folks find the concept to have that much of a return on investment, this could be a great long term holder. Advice here would be to buy in slowly and look for a longer timeframe for payback

      Carol-CS, might be something for you to look at too.

  5. Hydrogen fuel cell stock: pick one, Kid. Give me your best guess, so far so good. I just wonder when you are going to pick a dog, you are due.....still, I am willing to go back to your well. Let me know,

    1. Fredd, PLUG is the one. Especially as seen in today's action. It was up and FCEL and BLDP were in the red.

      PLUG also held where it needed to at 6-ish. If it's good, it will continue up here with high 5's as the latest 'low', If it drops below today's low, dump it if you bought it. Pretty good risk to reward.

      I have no idea what your risk profile or time horizon is so I can't be specific. My thought is PLUG is going to release several good news items in 2014 that will move the stock. I currently own a good amount of it but I will dump it below today's low and look for another entry point. If it continues up, depending on the context at the time, I may trade it. If it goes parabolic, (look at MCIG's chart) orPLUGs chart as it went to 11+, I'll sell it also and look to get back in on a multi-day pullback. If that makes sense if and when.

      How about PHOT. bounced on 60 cents. at .615 or something at the close. Below 60 it's gone.

    2. Fredd, Sold Everything, PHOT, MCIG and PLUG, will re-evaluate. Kid

    3. Fredd, It looks like PHOT crept back over 60. I will say that None of these three stocks are acting like momo stocks, so no regrets on my sales. Still made money and "Opportunities are easier to find than lost money."

      The big movers like TSLA, AMZN are also looking pretty weak, maybe an omen for a market correction. March is a good month for those to occur. I'm going to hang loose and keep it very close to the vest for a couple 3 weeks.

      Good luck on PHOT if you still have it. I'll write again if/when I buy them back.

    4. Still have PHOT. Only a small holding, original investment of $1000. I am inclined to hold it until the cows come home, watch it death spiral into oblivion, or soar to unbelievable highs. It's in my IRA, I turn 59.5 in 6 months, and then turn into a wild spending, drunken sailor after I have no penalty for dipping into these funds. Woo hoo.

      My risk tolerance: unbelievably high. Most of my assets are in equities, always have been, I am completely OK with volatility. The more, the merrier. Most equities outgain every other investment in the very long run. Watched my portfolio lose 48% in 2008/2009 thanks to the Democrat caused housing bubble, then watched it crawl back to 111% of pre-Obama levels, didn't panic, didn't waver from a very long term view.

      Word to the Wise (of whom you are a charter member): day trading is just Las Vegas for the lazy. You can get your thrills from a keyboard on your couch, rather than have to board a jet, get a room and settle down in front of the one arm bandit. One can't possibly analyze a position given the public info available and then reliably and correctly bet on whether the issue goes up or down based on any reasonable argument. That's just nuts. You can't plan on a key man in a company getting a heart attack, getting hit by a bus, or the secretary embezzling all of the cash that was put aside for dividends.

      Of course, day traders will tell me they can quit any time they want. They just don't want to.

    5. Ok, Fredd, good luck. I agree 100%, market is a casino short term and an inflation hedge long term. and much more with dividend stocks etc. And like you I find anything anyone else knows as worthless information. It's why I go strictly off the charts. Lots of ways to be successful though.

  6. Bought 10000 worth of PLUG in my 401K at just under 6.00 and sold it a short time later at just under 10.00.

    If you're buying now you missed it.
