Annoying day yesterday, had to think about that word choice, almost went with frustrating. But on second thought it wasn’t frustrating it was “just one of those days” I traded my plans and some of them “kind of worked” and others didn’t but I kept to my stops and did not add to losers. Biggest thing I have learned this year is not trying to force things. Its one thing to put on a trade and have it not go your way or maybe have it move 10 cents when you wanted 50 cents, but it’s a completely different and perilous prospect to keep adding and trying to “make it work”. I’ve grown to be much more diligent in risk management. And proud of that.
Today’s List: Full list from Yahoo Finance
ContraVir Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CTRV) -NasdaqCM
Lost a couple cents on this yesterday but considering the ramp into the close it was a good cover. But it’s now fading pre market, bummer. Will watch for pops.
Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (PACB) -NasdaqGS
Another trade from yesterday that appears I had the right idea, just didnt want to hold over night. Some sympathy play of this got crushed. But who knows it could have just as easily been positive news and I’d be crying about how stupid it was to hold a biotech overnight. I’ll take the couple hundred dollar profit and no overnight stress/risk.
Target: Anything over $6.00
Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) -NasdaqGS
Just watching for now, ideally some sort of spike towards $7, or will look to join weakness.
Target: $7.00 or afternoon fading.
Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (BCEI) -NYSE
Target: Basically the same as RJET, pop’s towards $7.00 or fading.
Xenoport, Inc. (XNPT) -NasdaqGS
Target: $4.75 for a starter.
