Today’s Watchlist

Pfft, fought $KMI all day yesterday, stupid oil stocks… Should have covered early for decent gains, but let it grind me back to even. Two lessons, 1. Just avoid stocks tied to something like Oil etc. 2. If you do trade them its got to be “Nail and bail” don’t get greedy.

Should be posting my “Part Time Trading” webinar later today.

Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance

“real” and oil and gas… But the chart keeps bringing me back.. I’m going to fight to not trade this, ideally there are other setups. But watching pops.

ENOC

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) -NYSE

Tought to not want to play the “Oprah pump” but most likely crowded, Ideally a squeeze early then a set risk late day fade.

Oil/gas, “real” blah blah, do my best to ignore.

Today’s Watchlist

Good day yesterday, solid patience on entry and added smartly. Limited watch list at this point, Yahoo finance has been down for like 20 minutes and I’m tired of trying to do research with page timeouts. If this list changes dramatically I will do a followup post before the open.

yhoo

Watchlist for 1-25-2016 – $TROV, $KMI, $GLNG

Today’s Watchlist

Blegh, spent all day fighting $KMI Friday, complete waste of time, stupid oil stocks…. Managed it ok by adding into pop’s, then covered for a minimal loss late day. I’m more annoyed by the six hours I spent vs the small loss. Would have much preferred just leaving to go fishing at noon instead of 3PM.

After that pointless waste of time, and today’s mediocre scan’s it’s gonna take something pretty interesting for me to make any moves this morning. Ideally something this afternoon.

Is There Any Reason to Keep Up with the News? | via @artofmanliness

“A contemporary dictator wishing to establish power would not need to do anything so obviously sinister as banning the news: he or she would only have to see to it that news organizations broadcast a flow of random-sounding bulletins, in great numbers but with little explanation of context, within an agenda that kept changing, without giving any sense of the ongoing relevance of an issue that had seemed pressing only a short while before, the whole interspersed with constant updates about the colorful antics of murderers and film stars. This would be quite enough to undermine most people’s capacity to grasp political reality — as well as any resolve they might otherwise have summoned to alter it. The status quo could confidently remain forever undisturbed by a flood of, rather than a ban on, news.”

“I don’t know a single truly creative mind who is a news junkie — not a writer, not a composer, mathematician, physician, scientist, musician, designer, architect or painter. On the other hand, I know a bunch of viciously uncreative minds who consume news like drugs. If you want to come up with old solutions, read news. If you are looking for new solutions, don’t.”

Solid day yesterday, its Friday and I have plans to go fishing this afternoon. So I’m in no rush to expand my watchlist beyond a handful of stocks.

FYI if you attended my webinar yesterday, thanks!! But I goofed up and did not hit the record button on the webinar…. The plan is to “re-do” it in a private session, record it and post it soon.

TrovaGene, Inc. (TROV) -NasdaqCM

Was hoping for some pre market action in this. Looks pretty lame at this point. Choppy chart from yesterday. I only will short it higher. If it fades out of the gate I’ll avoid.

Target: Big pop’s/squeeze, towards $7.00

TROV

Zafgen, Inc. (ZFGN) -NasdaqGS

Thinking this fades in the afternoon after a morning spike. So not going to fit my schedule, but for sure watching big pops for further unwinding.

ZFGN

Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) -NYSE

A little too “real” for me and tied to oil so annoying. But will look to short pops to $14.50 IF oil is weak.

KMI

Today’s Watchlist

Another quiet day on scans, I still think it is a solid part of preparation and getting “in sync” with the market, but it seems most trades shape up after the open lately.

Reminder, if you are curious how I implement my “Part Time Trading” style, I will be hosting a free webinar at Investor’s Underground after the close at 4:15. Click here to register:

Zafgen, Inc. (ZFGN) -NasdaqGS

My favorite industry to hate on is fat loss pills… But overnight upgrades on this, will try and hit the backside after this pre market pop.

ZFGN

Lucas Energy, Inc. (LEI) -NYSE MKT

Oil keeps dropping, this thing appears to be a carcass, will attempt to scale into.

LEI

Nxt-ID, Inc. (NXTD) -NasdaqCM

Just BARELY missed a fill on this, then didn’t want to chase. Bummer, seems like a layup now, but I was afraid of the crowd at the open and thought I could get it higher. Hoping for some pops to around $1.00

NXTD

Kingtone Wirelessinfo Solution Holding Ltd. (KONE) -NasdaqCM

Had a price alert at $5, but it went off, I was watching others, then by the time I checked it had already dropped. Watching for pops to $4 – $4.25

How to Make Millions – DVD Review by @timothysykes Disc 13

Link to Table of Contents

Review:

This chapter is listed as “bonus material” So it is just a kind of catchall of random video clips. good stuff though I had seen everything already. A lot of these clips are available on youtube. The best quality content is for sure the Roundtable Q and A from one of the Pennystocking conferences a few years back.

This roundtable is composed of Nate (@investorslive), Gregg (@LX21), Paul Scolardi (supertrades) and Sykes. There are some solid questions and great answers, as well as some funny clips and discussion. It’s cool and interesting to see all these guys in one place and hear their unique spin on things. I did attend this conference so I had already seen this before. But if you have not it’s a must watch and worth the time.

While the actual education in this chapter is a little light, it’s a fun light hearted chapter that does a good job of ending the package on a fun note.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 (Only rated this low because the actual actionable content is light, though the entertainment value is high.)

Watchlist for 1-20-2016 – $NXTD, $BSI, $NHTC, $FIT, $LPTH – Some great advice from @investorslive

Today’s Watchlist

Veeeeery quiet on the scans this morning. Market was down huge overnight, little bounce right now (5AM) but I’m thinking thats only temporary. Of course I’m sure any reader of this blog knows I’m pretty much a perma bear. Good though not great trade yesterday. Waited for my entry, used patience and really the only mistake was taking too quick of profits. But then left with my “meat of the move” for the day and moved on. No pressing/boredom trades for me in this market.

Great advice/commentary from Nate @investorslive :

“I noticed a lot more people on twitter saying “I’m tired of twitter idiots I’m not going to be posting as much” (this means I don’t wan to admit it but I’m losing and taking a break to replenish just don’t want to admit it I’ve seen it over the year so many times) — I don’t think there’s any better sign of the times right now than these actions. Things are getting scary out there, people are feeling it who are unprepared, over staying and not sticking to plans. This is just the start. Stay safe out there.”

Nxt-ID, Inc. (NXTD) -NasdaqCM

Really like this setup, but EVERYBODY is all over shorting this, so I’ll only trade it much higher. Ideally a weak open to draw in more chasers then a big move to the upside for entry.

NXTD

Alon Blue Square Israel Ltd (BSI) -NYSE

On to day 3+ on this, I’m starting to get much more aggressive.

Target: $6.00

BSI

Natural Health Trends Corp. (NHTC) -NasdaqCM

Surprised this has not fell apart yet, but probably just early shorts trying to be paitient off of the hit piece. REALLY hoping for a spike to get short. Though I won’t chase down here, its choppy now and will be an attention whore if you don’t have a solid entry.

NHTC

Fitbit Inc. (FIT) -NYSE

Waiting for this to get “GoPro’d” watching pops for a swing short.

FIT

LightPath Technologies, Inc. (LPTH) -NasdaqCM

Target: $3.40

LPTH
