    I did mention on one of my thread that I will not be able to make post due to my time restriction but after reading the post from one of the OTF member "Zombie", I came up with the idea to create a thread where stock symbols can be posted: eg tech looks bearish for swing- watch appl, rimm, goog or Banks look bullish for a day or 2: watch BAC etc or Casinos looks like they have one more day of upside(not a suggestion, just an example).

    No price points, no exit strategies will be mentioned. Do your own homework to get the entry exit points. I am not good in posting the charts on OTF and also I dont have time to do that but I will keep posting the picks when I have some time to do so. I hope everyone tries to contribute the picks they are trading with or the ones they find interesting. No penny stocks please :)

    I came up with this thread thinking that OTF can have something on " Stock picks and strategies" section which makes it interesting.

    To be frank, I never look for recommendation on OTF. I am just here so that I can share some things which can be helpful to people who needs help.

    I would not hesitate to contribute if people are willing to do so.
    This thread will be dead if people wont contribute because I myself would not care and would leave OTF :)

    Well my problem right now is......everything loooks bullish right now. Almost every chart I look at is lookin like it can go higher. SP is prolly headed to 1000. BUT ten up days in a row cuz earning were less bad? I'm short right now.

    Short FAS.

    Also I like EGO around $9 (haven't bought yet). They report earnings July 31st and i'm expected big thangs. They're a pretty low cost gold miner. And I believe they are NOT hedged at a certain gold price, so they will have benefited from higher gold prices in Q2.

    IDK though I'm pretty confused right now. Just keepin the thread alive because this will be a good thread if others post in it!

    No contribution from other members. Bye Bye OTF :top:

    Playing Index is tricky but individual stocks are acting great if you know which stocks to pick.
    Had a very nice early week playing with few stocks(weekend holds). Got in some stocks in the morning, so far acting well :)

    bac should be going higher imo this week if the market holds, which it should.

    msft /yhoo the possible buyout should fare well for both, not only that but mfst should be going higher on it's own merits and with the recent drop it looks like a good time to buy. the deal could easily be happening within a week.

    sqnm was hit by a nuke a while back but i see the stock coming back and i hopped in at around $4 with hopes of $10+

    stx is doing well and has good value. wd is also doing quite well but stx is cheaper and i likem cheap if i can get em.

    housing market seems like people are ready for a comeback so if you look around some stocks dug in with housing should perform.

    im also in a few that are more risky and short term but i don't want to look a fool :p so i'll just stick with the those for now, any opinions are more than welcome.

    what do you guys think about HUN?


    EDIT: @ Mo Dingo, I got out of UTA today with %23 gains, that was quite a nice stock today :D

    Re: Stock Picks..................Trade at your own RISK!

    UTA has been kicking butt lately! I was thinking of getting out when I went from a gain of 10% to %40 in 2 days, but then it crashed to only 20%, then now I am back to a 60% gain. I really like this company in the long run (zero debt, lots of cash, small cap with unlimited room to grow, continues to beat earnings year after year), but with such little volume & lots of volatility, idk where it's going in the short term!

    HUN has missed earnings estimates for the past 8 quarters, lots of debt and merger plans went down the tube a while back. I like the chemical segment of the market, and this company has a lot of room to grow/compete, but I am not a fan at this point. This stock has been flat for the past 3 months as well.

    Earnings estimates are negative, but outlook has been raised. I would wait until next quarter before buying HUN.

    What are your thoughts on HUN?

    HUN does not look good from a technical point of view. Since late February it has followed a textbook Elliott Wave pattern and it looks like it will continue true to form, Which means that it should go down from here. Typically the C wave will be similar if not equal to A so I have estimated the position of C. It may or may not reach that level.

    Re: Stock Picks..................Trade at your own RISK!

    the msft/yhoo merger did happen, the terms of the deal ended up not being like we were all led to believe but instead a long term deal. which in the end will still be positive for both companies if they can do it propperly. The drop in yhoo's stock surprised me today as they will get 88% of bing ad revenue for 5 years plus save hundreds of millions not having to fund their own search technology. yhoo looks like it could be a good price to get into atm. i personally am not pulling the trigger as im in msft right now.

    uta is a very volitile stock, it can fluctuate $1-3 a day and is a 12ish dollar stock. personally i'll be getting in if it tanks again as i also feel its a solid stock.

    I felt that HUN was oversold and has the potential to go up. i was curious a couple days ago as it was trending up and nearing resistance until it went down. i feel i've been getting alot of back alley positive comments for this stock so i was curious to hear your guys opinions.

    kinda sucks im nearing my pullout gains in a couple stocks and i have some decent cash i want to put in the market but don't have any very positive picks like i usually do for the investment. better staying at 0 then lose $$ aye? 8)

    I know what you mean. I bought into UTA a few times due to it's massive dips and spikes!

    Did you see the Asian market yesterday? Up 88 percent? WTF?

    One thing that adds a bit of interest into HUN is it's 6.5% dividend yield. Either they cut it, or it will be a really nice purchase for long term investors.

    Nice to see some type of contribution in here :)

    I will try and post some picks if I see people contributing their views.
    Albert is doing a good job on other thread!

    $ and treasuries are going down and down. How long will Obama let them go down and stocks up? We need to watch.

    I was in some BGU, BAC stock and options. I sold everything here today.

    I started small BGZ for a swing(You can argue about trying to pick the top)! Still nothing says that market is going to sell off. I think sell off will only start when market gaps down huge one day and crush the dip buyers along the way.

    Right now Bears have covered and watching, bulls are confused and will chase if the market moves higher.

    Will keep an eye on Oil to short in a few days.

    Feels like market will go up tomorrow. It is holding AH.

    FSLR is crushed down AH after making highs to 193. If market rallies higher in the morning tomorrow. Watch FSLR to rally or retrace higher tomorrow morning.

    On a daily chart, today's candle is an island (from the gap) with a topping tail. Intraday: M shape reversal. I am not holding my breath. I was almost so sure S&P will hit 1000. Big face-slap longing on the drop on FAS in the last 30 minutes.

    1000 is a good barrier. If nothing else, psychological. Bull/bear turf fight. Will see.

    Dang! I watched it hit $190 plus in AH before I decided to head out for a bike ride! This trading stuff is crazy;)

    FSLR ended AH were it closed for the day..I'm not sure I would call that a "crush"?

    Whoops, typo, nvm.

    I just saw in a headline that the cash for junkers program just ran out of money......nice.

    I guess the government can't subsidize everything they want....It will be interesting to see what happens with this.

    I can't wait for next week, another earnings bonanza!!!

    i lost the thread not realizing it was stickied :p

    anyways anyone else lucky enough to get into HIG for the jump today, i jumped in just minutes into premarket after listening to the conference call for a little bit @ 15.80. If HIG can hold it together like they project they will they have alot of room to go in the long term. I still see another couple days of gains especially with the market holding for short term.

    Im going to stay in BAC for tommrow, i won't speculate further than that, but they wanted to go up all week and with a better performing market they've got the room to do so.

    If you played your cards right and got in low w/ ACAS a while back and held for the insane $1.07/share dividend they are cashing out august 7 and ontop of that the stock has gone up the past few days. they will report earnings a day before div payouts so we'll see what happens there.

    I wish i had faster information on all thee small pharma stocks that are so volitile but oh well. I guess i can't complain with my gains....

    USU

    In the last 3 days, since the bad news, some 80+ mil. shares exchanged owner. Stock price stabilised. We are looking at capitulation with stock price not going down any more.

    USU isn't going anywhere without the new plants they have been talking about. That's not happening unless they get their billion $+ loan or some other form of outside capital.

    stock still looks to risky atm imo.
