Weekend Stock Thoughts 12/7/14

The Russian Ruble has really taken a beating lately with falling oil prices. The general consensus seems to be that we are in a new era of low oil prices but like always I see the prices going down a lot faster than they go up, but it has been good to our economy in the short term to have less expenses. In the long term I think consumers will continue to suffer from short term memory and oil is going to eventually go back which makes the current stock prices in energy stocks very appealing to me.

 

This month I got a little bit of an extra boost in that I got paid out on my overtime. I used almost all of that money to invest into new stocks. I much rather save up my money and get closer to financial freedom than to buy a new laptop or a bunch of new music. I guess that is not the consumer way of things, but to me it is all about putting it into perspective and not cheating myself in the long term by pleasing myself today.

 

As such I am currently building up a new set of dividend stocks. I now have enough dividend stocks to get something (also very small) every month. My plan is to slowly build on that until I have a nice monthly revenue. That being said I still haven’t given up active investing and have several swing plays I am currently going after.

 

Here is where I am as of today:

 

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $150.68

I can’t believe how much money I make off this stock. It is just a class B stock, it isn’t like it even has voting rights. Tells me people are very undecided right now, but I guess their loss is my gain.

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$19.21

Kind of subdued right now, but still doing well. I expect a new contract announcement soon.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.62 Current Price: $27.38

Still my favorite dividend stock. Nice and steady.

$FPI (Farmland Partners Inc.) Cost Per Share: $11.72 Current Price: $11.11

Still not sure about this stock, but it is slowly making it’s way and the dividends make it tolerable.

$FTR (Frontier Communications Corp.) Cost Per Share: $6.62 Current Price: $6.90

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.82 Current Price: $26.02

Definitely a stock affected by the oil crisis, but I think there is opportunity here to accumulate and so I probably will be adding soon.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $6.54

Slowly rising, I can see the short interest decreasing I have a good feeling it will see it’s day soon.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.60 Current Price: $3.60

Added at 3.48 to lower my cost on this stock. You’d think a 20M contract would be a good reason for it to shoot up but shorts are doing a good job keeping it down. I expect more details next week on the new telecommunications deal which should help it a little bit. February is going to be the crucial test when they announce earnings.

$SNV (Synovus Financial Corp.) Cost Per Share: 27.12 Current Price: $26.49

I probably bought this stock a little high, but I really like the company. A small financial bank with good dividends makes this stock very attractive. I have been watching them for a long time looking for a good entry point and felt like I was chasing a bit, but in the end just decided to go for it.

$RSH (Radio Shack Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.21 Current Price: $.59 Price Sold: $.63

It was hard for me to take such a steep loss, but I know when to get out and that is good. Lender is calling a default which I think is not accurate, but when even your lender doesn’t believe in you it is time to move on. The lending terms even as they were, were kind of harsh. They really need to close more stores quickly to stop the bleed, but all this negative publicity in December is not helping the situation. Unfortunately, bankruptcy is their best hope, but I do hope they get a buyout. The name has been out there for 90 years.

$SPLS (Staples Inc.) Cost Per Share: $12.96 Current Price: $14.38

I love it when a plan comes together. I have noticed by the foot traffic I see that this company is doing well and it shows in their stock price.

$UL (Unilever PLC) Cost Per Share: $40.75, Current Price: $42.42

I love how you have to use their products over and over again.

$WIN (Windstream Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $10.67, Current Price: $9.70

A lot of day traders are downgrading this stock saying it can’t keep up their dividend payout. I think there is still hope in this stock and I hope to see a reversal soon. Many times day traders say the opposite of what they do. Follow the options and you get a better picture of how people really think.

Weekend Stock Thoughts 11/9/14

The markets have seen a correction, gas prices are down significantly, and the Republicans have taken over the Congress. This is definitely a time of volatility in the markets. My guess is that we are going to go down, but this could create some good opportunities in the market for buying. I have been buying a lot of dividend stocks, this is a new market strategy for me, but I figure it should be interesting for a long term play.

It has been awhile and I haven’t been very disciplined in posting but here is where I am currently at:

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $143.61

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$19.70

Still trying my patience. It still has all the signs in my opinion of a breakout stock but it is definitely hard to wait it out.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.62 Current Price: $26.00

Still buying, still liking the dividend income on this stock. Steady as she goes…

$FPI (Farmland Partners Inc.) Cost Per Share: $11.72 Current Price: $10.59

Not so sure as when I bought it. I thought land prices were going to go up, but real estate has turned into a very selective market. So now I am a bit uneasy.

$FTR (Frontier Communications Corp.) Cost Per Share: $6.62 Current Price: $6.44

Another dividend stock, I really like the yield but it is a bit of a risk place right now for communications.

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.82 Current Price: $26.41

Energy stocks not such a great play as I thought it would be, but I guess I will have to bag it for awhile here.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.05 Current Price: $.02, Sold Price: $.02

Took the loss and moved on. It is a sleeper for now.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $7.18

Shorts still have a hold on this one, but not for too much longer. Earnings should be reported soon and it will pick up the pace.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.15, Sold Price: $.19

The trend told me to get out earlier and I didn’t but I at least I cut my losses.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $5.60 Current Price: $5.30

Not liking how it never seems to keep it’s gains but I still think it will see it’s day as soon as some new contracts are confirmed.

$RSH (Radio Shack Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.21 Current Price: $.9465

Not good seeing this trading like a penny stock, but I think if the company can close some stores and get it’s online store going it might have a chance.

$SPLS (Staples Inc.) Cost Per Share: $12.96 Current Price: $12.93

There is a Staples near my house and I have noticed foot traffic to the store is picking up, maybe this dividend stock will pick up as well?

$UL (Unilever PLC) Cost Per Share: $40.75, Current Price: $39.98

I like the company and the idea of things that people will always need, planning on keeping this one for a long time.

$WIN (Windstream Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $10.67, Current Price: $9.55

I went for this one as a energy/dividend play, but in light of the current Congress I might have to bail out of this one soon. I don’t think the Republicans will let it fly.

Weekend Stocks 8/30/14

Everyone hates the bull market going on right now, but it is really strong. Russia, fracking, high transportation cost, congress gridlock it doesn’t matter the stock market does not care. The rich are getting richer and everyone else apparently is going to have to pay for it. I would love to see a pullback but I am not seeing the catalyst to bring that about. That being said I am in accumulation mode. My strategy right now is to weed out some of my losers and add to the winners. I am also starting to play a few dividend stocks. The idea of “set it and forget” sounds kind of good to me right now. In my longer retirement accounts I have a lot of SP500 index funds which are going off like crazy, which is nice to see the money come into those accounts.

Coming into next week here is where I am at:

$BRK.B (Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B) Cost Per Share: $134.92 Current Price: $137.25

Warren Buffet has got 10 Billion in cash sitting in this stock. That is more money than have the planet’s country’s GDPs. The reason I bought it was because they own GEICO which means I get a 5% discount on my auto insurance. Include the 2% gain I made in one week, it is like Berkshire is paying me to have GEICO insurance.

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$19.28

Gained 4% this week which is awesome. Lots of deals in this stock should push it to the mid 20’s, good case study to be patient.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.55 Current Price: $24.38

Still buying, keeping the cost per share the same while adding. Really liking the dividend income on this stock.

$GE (General Electric Co.) Cost Per Share: $27.84 Current Price: $25.98

I am kind of drifting to energy plays but I see a trend line pointing me to $30, plus it has a nice dividend payout.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.05 Current Price: $.027

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Sold Price: $1.15 Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.17

I thought the Russia situation would help this stock, but I was wrong. Their latest presentation did not impress me. Not a big fan of Power Point presentation. Looked kind of childish.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.13 Current Price: $6.54

In kind of deep right now on this one as it represents 20% of my portfolio. It is going to either pay well or it is going to hurt A LOT. I figure I got 50% shot right now, really need that 20F to come out, hoping late September, early October.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.27

You’d think the rising palladium prices would help this more, but it didn’t. Guess I will just have to bag hold it for a little longer, but it is a minor player in my portfolio so I can be patient.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $5.60 Current Price: $5.58

I keep winning with this stock. So volatile, but so predictable! I am down .02 cents right now, but I have no doubt I will get that back out when it hits $6.50 and then I probably will buy it again at $5.50, because people are inpatient and I am making money on that.

Weekend Thoughts 8/2/14

Sounds cliché but I have been super busy with family stuff and haven’t posted lately. Doesn’t mean I have not been trading though. I just got called out online so I guess I should update my trades:

Coming into next week here is where I am at:

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$17.30

Should have sold at $20, long way to $25 right now.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.55 Current Price: $22.51

Still buying more stock little by little. Harder now that they beat estimates, but solow and steady wins this one.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.05 Current Price: $.033

Speculation market is hard. Still way underwater here, but haven’t sold yet for a loss.

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Sold Price: $.71 Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.65

Lost a bit on this one but had to cut my losses.

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.31

Market slowed that express train, but the new product is good and I think I can still wait for that $2.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $6.02 Current Price: $6.55

Bought in hard at 4.42 to bring down average. This is nothing but an overzealous short attack that this point. Company might go private, but I am ahead so it is ok.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.26

Took a bad turn with the Russian controversy, which is weird because I would have thought it would help it, but it didn’t.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.19 Current Price: $5.38

Added a little bit recently to this but kept my cost per share the same. I think 7 could come up soon. Just hope the CEO gets a little bit more organized.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Sold price: $.84 Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $.73

Took a loss, just wasn’t moving fast enough. I do have a little in another longer term account but the average there is 1.03, but I might be selling that soon too.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Sold Price: $2.05 Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $1.63

Wasn’t a clean escape from the zombies, I think I might have lost a leg out there, but at least I can move on for another day.

The markets last week were just brutal. Not much better way to put it when the S&P wipes out a month worth of profit in a few days. Overall I would say it is going to be rough for bulls out there for this quarter, but I am an optimist and I do think opportunities are out there. I am just going to a little more research to find them.

Weekend Stocks 6/21/14

Well overall the markets seem to be doing well. Energy continues to be a big topic as oil goes above $107 per barrel as we see unrest in Iraq. Gold and silver are also up which makes my Morgan silver dollars look better every day.

Coming into next week here is where I am at:

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$20.00

Doing really well here. Cal Amp is poised to go back to $25 and I will be ready to collect.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.15 Current Price: $21.53

Still accumulating this stock. I really like the charts it shows. One day this stock could be my retirement. Nice steady gain. Only worried now about a possible buyout that would stop my fun.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.06 Current Price: $.0339

Still scuba diving here..

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.74

Sill on the sidelines.

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.56

$2 coming like an express train.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $9.85 Current Price: $7.35

Went under fast, but game isn’t over yet.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.38

.50 seems likely but question is if we can do .90.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.19 Current Price: $4.80

Options are holding this under $5, but they can’t keep it down forever.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $.86

Wake me up at 1.20, better yet wake me up now because I don’t want to dream my life away.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $2.13

Zombie stock, if I ever make money here run. The end will be near.

Updated Stocks 6/4/14

I have been busy with some other projects lately but I wanted to at least update my stock standings. I recently sold a lot of stock to pay off some old debt I had, but I can now say I am completely debt free. Not a millionaire but it is nice to know thanks to my stock trades I now owe no one anything (monetarily)except for perhaps gratitude, never can get out of that debt.

Here is where I currently stand:

$CAMP  (Cal Amp) Cost Per Share: $18.54 Current Price:$18.49

Going for a bounce play here. I sold this at $24 before and I think I can do it again.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $20.23 Current Price: $19.96

Still accumulating this stock. A little here and a little there. Dividends reward longs on this stock.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.06 Current Price: $.041

Way underwater here, but target was 1 year so I am ok.

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.73

Still down on this stock, will be on the sidelines for awhile here.

$MNGA (Magnegas Gas Corp.) Cost Per Share: $1.32 Current Price: $1.52

This has been a no brainer for me. I easily see $2, if lucky $2.50-$3. How I got it as low as I did was just lucky timing.

$NQ (NQ Mobile) Cost Per Share: $9.80 Current Price: $9.99

Last time I bought this stock I bought it at $10 and sold for $20 and that was before audit results were out. Carson clipped this stock good, but now they are going to regret it. The company has some good partnerships. Sprint looks very promising.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.38 Current Price: $.273

Sold, made money. Rebought but didn’t time it well and now I am a bit down, but still got hope here.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.19 Current Price: $4.35

All news I see is good here. Will take a bit of profit near $6.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $.85

A momentum stock with no volume sad.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $1.78

Dead money. Only reason I still have it is because I own so little of it, so not even worth worrying about it.

Weekend Thoughts 4/6/14

This weeks plays:

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $7.37 Current Price: $7.12

Made some bold moves in a weak Friday market by buying. I bought at 7.50 (thought 7.54 was going to support, guess I was wrong) and at 6.97 (saw bounce at 6.95). Lot of short activity on this stock, but my research denotes this is just a front for hedge fund buy-ins. On a technical level the trend line is still up and the stock is still in normal volatility range. Dependent on news I see another short attack at 8.40, but if news is good we will see a major pop.

Lots of potential still out there. With new Relion acquisition PLUG has a new capacity and I still see a Hyundai deal possibility. Also, California wants 70 hydrogen filling stations and I think PLUG could be part of that.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.07 Current Price: $.00491

Been pretty solid in the .05 range.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $21.23 Current Price: $19.76

Still accumulating this stock. A little here and a little there. Not really trying to time it, just adding, it will pay in time.

$FREE (Freeseas INC.) Current Price: $1.65, Sold Price: $1.65

Lost again on this stock, but I needed money to get more PLUG stock. With my luck they will sell that boat now.

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.775

Apparently I am not seeing something here as it is going down hard. Still think it has potential, question is do I tie up more capital in it.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.48 Current Price: $.48

At break even now. Demand is increasing, plan still in place.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $1.20

Just holding for right now. Might add if I see some discounts but not expecting anything new till June.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $2.76

It’s alive!!! Have no idea why, still far behind on this stock, but I guess it doesn’t hurt having a zombie stock roaming around.

Weekend Thoughts 3/30/14

I haven’t updated my blog in a while but I have been really busy in my other two money streams (EBay and Website Design), but that is another story. The good news is I have a new infusion of cash ready and I think the market is in a good buying position. Most of the headlines in the news lately have been about how we are pointed down. On a chart level I can see that, but I am feeling a bit contrarian these days and I think the short interest lately has been a bit over played. I have been tracking unemployment numbers and they are starting to look good. Also, I see strong housing numbers which tell me people are starting to build. I think the cold might have slowed the eastern seaboard a bit, but now as we turn to Spring I am feeling not just a turn in the weather but a bit in the markets.

This weeks plays:

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $7.33 Current Price: $6.90

What can I say this stock is all over the place! It’s up, it’s down, it’s anything but boring. I am a bit down in my current position, but I don’t really care because I got a feeling this is going to get good really soon. Lots of speculation on Marsh’s “news”. It is really anyone’s guess at this point. My GUESS is Azure for Asia news (noticed today the RSS feed was down) and Hyundai for automotive, but again that is just a guess. My current sell order is at 11.15, just in case a short needs to cover (I am here for you).

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.07 Current Price: $.0055

I got stopped out of this stock recently at .08 and then rebought some more between .06-.07. After making 500% on that last trade I just couldn’t resist trying again.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $20.76 Current Price: $19.65

Just slowly accumulating this stock. I love the idea of receiving a dividend off this stock. I have this crazy idea that I am going to get enough dividend so I can spin the profits into small cap investments.

$FREE (Freeseas INC.) Cost Per Share: $1.87 Current Price: $1.61

Buying this stock must be a physical manifestation of my masochistic side. Why else would I for the second time buy a company that has 2 of 7 ships in operation?! Lost money at this point

$IDN (Intelli-Check Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.07 Current Price: $.9035

I just recently got a ready pass card for my passport. Every time I go south to the border I notice that there are more ID checks. Every government building I go to has more ID card machines. This sector is getting hot and this is a great entry price. I will be buying all the way to $1.25.

$PAL (North America Palladium Ltd.) Cost Per Share: $.48 Current Price: $.4680

I wasn’t sure about this stock. I was pretty much set on it going down to .42 a share. So I tested it by putting in some really low orders, but it didn’t budge. I thought for sure it would go to .41 on Friday, but it didn’t. Showing such strong support at .45 was key to my decision in buying. TP for me is .75 (do I dare attempt a $1??)

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.31 Current Price: $1.14

I will be buying more this week. Short interest is high right now due to speculation of a reverse stock split. I don’t think it is going to happen, but I will be more than happy to take the temporary discount to average down my shares. I am still holding out till June on expected trial updates.

$UQM (UQM Technologies Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.11 Current Price: $2.52

What can I say, lost money. Luckily I have very few shares at this point and I don’t need the cash soon. Maybe if some big automotive news comes out we could see some life here, but not likely.

 

Weekend Thoughts 3/7/14

When I was a freshman at UCSB I was an electrical engineering major. Seeing as I graduated with a MBA it is obvious that the engineering thing was not for me. It was an interesting period during my life. One project I did was do some design work for a prototype vehicle. This was back in 1995 and the idea was that you could fuel a car with bio products. My professor liked the project and I was lucky enough to meet some engineers from the Mobil company. They took me out on this boat and we went about a mile off the coast and I saw this amazing site. The water was churning with bubbles. It was quite the site, it looked like the entire sea was boiling. The water wasn’t hot, what I was seeing was natural gas. Apparently off the Santa Barbara coast line there is a vast supply of energy just bubbling up out of the ocean. It got me interested in the idea of energy and how and where it could be supplied.

Fast forward to today and it looks like hydrogen fuel cells are going to finally see it’s day. I have seriously repositioned (ie. sold) my stocks so that I can concentrate more on this sector. I think we are seeing it in it’s beginning stages, not many people know about hydrogen fuel cells but I think by the end of year they will. So the question is what do I have left…

Last Week’s Plays:

$GALE (Galena Biopharma Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.30 Current Price: $3.36

Bought again into this stock at $4.14 and it almost immediately went down. I am overall 22% down on this stock. I am trying to stay strong on this stock but it is getting harder to do. My plan is just to hold, if it goes down I might actually add some more stocks just to cost average down a big, but I am still confident if I can just hold the line I should be ok.

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.44 Current Price: $1.32

Shorts have quite the hold on this one. Couple that with some negative articles by Adam Feuerstein and some bad timing on my part you get what we currently have. I am calm however because I feel as though we will be ok, just to got to keep calm and stay the course. The medicine has great potential.

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $6.51 Current Price: $8.37

This stock flagged out soo many weeks in the $4 and then it started to go up again dramatically. CEO Marsh was on CNBC and gave an intriguing interview in which he stated that he is in the process of contructing 45 new fuel cell stations (click here for video). Considering there are currently only 14 stations worldwide this is big news. The stock is reacting accordingly as the stock is up 77% currently for the week. The pattern suggests a pull back on Monday and Tuesday, my guess is support is at about $7.07, then we gain again to close the week at $10.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.01 Current Price: $.0330

I started buying this stock at .0045, just as speculation and I continue to do the same today. I wonder if it will ever hit a $1. If it can do that then I  will probably be able to retire. Imagine that.

Weekend Thoughts 2/23/14

Always remember who the real players are.

Always remember who the real players are.

The stock market in my opinion is trying to make up it’s mind if it is going to break up into new highs or sink very low. Overall I see a slow grind upwards. I have an optimistic view in that we are about to see new highs. I really like the trends for bio techs and metals right now and will be concentrating my trades in those sectors.

 

 

Last Week’s Plays:

$GALE (Galena Biopharma Inc.) Cost Per Share: $4.00 Current Price: $3.91

Started buying this stock at $3.72 and I think I did rather well in my timing. ER will be crucial for this stock but I think $6 is a reasonable TP.

Coming Plays:

$RNN (Rexahn Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $1.12 Current Price: $1.08

Still very bumpy with this stock. Kind of makes me nervous. I am not sure how much longer I will stay with this stock.

$CNDO (Coronado Biosciences Inc.) Cost Per Share: $2.23 Current Price: $2.70

This stock is turning out to be a DTs dream come true. I have seen this stock cycle so many times it is crazy. It tells me two things. 1) I am losing some opportunities to cycle and 2) it is still a strong stock (all we need is a new test study to come out).

$PLUG (Plug Power Inc.) Cost Per Share: $3.41 Current Price: $3.63

Look at CNDO.

$ARIA (Ariad Pharmaceuticals Inc.) Cost Per Share: $6.83 Current Price: $8.87
Lot of chatter on this stock but I can’t see anything of substance. The good news is the stock is slowly grinding its way up which is good.

$HA (Hawaiian Holdings Inc.) Cost Per Share: $7.03 Current Price: $11.28

I am really not sure what is going on but options activity on this stock have increased significantly. I think a breakout may be imminent but I still don’t see the catalyst.

$HYSR (Hypersolar Inc.) Cost Per Share: $.01 Current Price: $.0049

Still nothing to report.

$CNSL (Consolidated Communications) Cost Per Share: $18.95 Current Price: $19.20

Nothing to really report here. Going well. My strategy here is to just let it sit.

$OPK (OPKO Health Inc.) Cost Per Share: $9.19 Current Price: $8.83

The stock is starting to trend. I could see $10.00 coming this week.

$SIRI (Sirius XM Radio) Cost Per Share: $3.19 Current Price: $3.61

Still watching the paint dry on this one.
