I love being in the stock market. I do not trade however, so I don't have alot of turnover in our portfolios. So I won't be posting here very often.
Today I very much like a stock that I believe has pretty well bottomed after a recent fall and I believe has an awfully bright future. That company symbol is CKSW.



Be careful fishing on the bottom.....stocks tend to be at lows for a reason. Wait for stock to move up on big volume.

I recently got on the DDD bubble hoping to ride that one for awhile.
I bought TSLA at 33 then sold it at 38 (dumbass!)
I bought NOK at 3.7 and it's now around 3.44, I'll hold onto that one.
I bought SZYM because of the algae tech
I bought SPWR because they are producing the most efficient solar panels
I bough COST just because.
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

Related to your NOK purchase, I've joined the BBRY war on the long side. I say "war" as it's a very polarizing stock right now: people either are extremely bullish or bearish with this one. I've done OK with it so far, although recently it's been challenging as I have some short-term options on it. Last week, for example, an "analyst" firm put out some false information that the Company actually refuted (and subsequently other people have, too) but the damage has been done. The Company actually came out with a statement also saying they were reporting the analyst firm to the SEC and Canadian equivalent. I've never seen anything like it in my investing career. I still have some time, though, so things may play out in my favor yet. It's more of a short/medium term play, though, with technology moving so fast. All of that said, I'm highly confident we'll see over 20 this year although long-term, who knows.

For the long-term, FUN has done extremely well and may continue to creep up some with the SeaWorld IPO. Although currently out of SHFL for price reasons, I'm looking to re-enter when I can. CTL is also another core holding with ATHX being the "lottery ticket" of sorts although word is starting to get out as we're 100% up from the low of the year combined with great volume and interest.

Well if looking for a short this is probably it....CZR

On November 14th, CZR closed below $5. Since then, CZR has traded over $18 and today closed at $13.65.

COH is/was wallowing, and last month (Mar.) I decided to dump it at 51. Just not doin it this year (still 51-52 as of today). So I took $$$$$ and put it into Realty Income sym: O NYSE. Picked up 1200 at $44.65. Recently, the dip has knocked about 10G's of the total value and I'm at 416000 after being at nearly a 427000 peak. But what really pinched was the drop in gold from 1500-1600 into the mid 1300's. What was 15% of stock-value has dropped to 12.8%... but I'm not going anywhere, as my average buy price is in the low 400's. I sold a chunk at $1415 as a platform or base-line (+1000/oz) Mar. 2011. Gold has recently broken below, but seems to be stabilizing near that level (1390ish). Since the last big correction in 2008, I have not been "bullish" on Au, but recommend holding it if ya got it at 1000 or less. I am optomistic, as the Am. economy swirls around a black-hole of defecits with fewer and fewer people from whom to adequately tax.

With a 3-5 time horizon, ability to take risk, and tolerance for risk... I personally like the nat gas producers. CHK (also for improving corporate governance and balance sheet), UPL, and SWN.

Related to your NOK purchase...

Sold it today. No amount of polish can put a shine on the earning report that came out on Nokia. I'll look for opportunities elsewhere.

I don't know a lot about NOK, except that they have a valuable patent portfolio and trade at a discount even to their cash position- at least they did. It always seemed a stretch to me, that people would embrace a Microsoft OS on phones- at least on the higher-end. I know it's superficial in a way, but yet I can't shake it although I do admit, you throw enough money at something, and maybe you'll get results of some sort. The conventional wisdom appears to be the market will only support three ecosystyms, so at least from my investment perspective, my money is on BBRY to be number three. Time will tell...
