Trade Log – 10/9/2014 – $GTAT

Ticker: $GTAT

Entry: $1.26

Position Size: 1000

Stop: $1.21

Target: $1.50’s-$1.60’s

Thesis:

Kind of hard to pick a goal number on this, bought it into strength into the close and rumors $AAPL may try and save them, or buy their assets etc. Its more or less a gamble, but I think its a low risk gamble, with potentially huge upside.

Trade Log – 9/24/2014 – Shorted $BBRY @stockrealist this is for you!

Ticker: $BBRY

Entry: $10.82

Position Size: 1000

Stop: $10.86

Target: Low $10’s

Thesis:

Boredom trade… But several reasons.
1. Blackberry is doomed longterm.
2. That new phone is stupid and looks like a calculator.
3. Major hit piece out from UBS.
4. The fact that they try calling that dumb new phone an “Iphone killer”. I’m no Iphone fanboy, but come on if you were going to “kill” the iphone, I think you need to do a lot better than that thing.

Risk to reward wise its pretty good I think, worst case it goes sideways, best case that UBS report sinks it.

Trade Log – 9/17/2014 – $VIMC

Ticker: $VIMC

Entry: $8.00

Position Size: 675

Stop: $8.50

Target: High $6’s

Thesis:

Up a bunch of days in a row, I was intending on just watching this but put in a GTC order at $IBKR to get shares if they came available. Well thought I put it at $8.50 and actually set it at $8.00, so I’m short at a shitty price with an odd lot size. I’ll continue to hold (though probably foolish, the smart thing on a mistake is to always exist immediately) I’ll only add to my position under $8, I will not add to a loser.

Trade Log – 9/17/2014 – $AVNR

Ticker: $AVNR

Entry: $12.25

Position Size: 1500

Stop: $12.75

Target: Low $11’s

Thesis:

Up huge on news about a very small market drug. Price has been very strong the last few days, but finally looks like the double top and fade are in. Writing this a while after entry, so I’ve used the day’s HOD as a stop. Tired of taking such small gains lately so my goal is to hold this over a couple days and try and get a profit down to the mid to low $11’s.
