Review of open positions 09/19/2014

This week was another flat week for our portfolio. Better flat than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Anyhoo, Lots of odd news, Alibaba coming on as the largest ever IPO in history. Scotland wanting independance again, sundry wars and rumors of wars, and of course the ever present Eboli danger. We chose to exit $ACHN and tried our hand at a swing trade $VPRT. So far this swing is running favourably and we are in day 3.

Watchlist stocks that I fell extremely favourable towards is $INTC and $KAR. Earnings season is soon upon us, so note of caution. Our rule is dont buy prior to two weeks of earnings release.

$HIMX is showing a lot of potential as a swing trade.

$AA has been showing a lot of weakness of late. After the deal it just made with $BA I would have expected to see strength. Not happening at the moment. Stop is $16. Its been a good run but if it breaks the obvious stop We will be out.

$CAR. $UA and $MCK were both showing declines but appear to have bounced off the 50DMA and are slowly climbing back to the resistance level. Probably are ok for now.

And of course this weeks perception problem in video. HAHA
