Shares of USU skyrocketed today. I didn’t even bother looking at the news. All I had to see was the number of shares in its float and I knew why it went up. It’s a very tricky thing to be long stocks with thin floats. You need an ‘event’ that can provide you with the liquidity needed to get out at a handsome profit. Often times, when taking 7 fig positions in illiquid, low float names, the ‘event’ can be you taking the damned position, so you need another one.
Do you follow me?
Now if you’re buying into an already hot sector, there’s a good chance ‘bargain shoppers’ will get around to your name, bid it up, flag it on message boards, putting it to the top of the most % up list for the day. When that occurs, snowballs turn into avalanches and USU happens.
On the other hand, if you want to be really early in a name, buy into it when the sector is icy cold, or following an earnings shortfall. You will have to wait at least 3 months to get paid, but the reward can be bountiful.
To be perfectly frank with you, I am very eager to find a huge winner, having sold out of YGE and SOL too early. I need ‘the next one to go.”
I promise you, one of the stocks I am going to reveal to you will be a monster winner. Which one will it be?
I know it’s a lot of names. They need to be weeded out. But there is treasure to be found, somewhere on this list. I promise you that. Ragin Cajun was kind enough to link up a chart on Chartpin (an iBankCoin property), so that you could vote for your favorite name. I am certain the majority of you will be too lazy to sift through the charts. But for those of you who are industrious and have some times to kill, humor me by voting for your favorite names.
Trusting consensus, I will then remove the names that received the least votes, run them through another filter or two, then begin to build a position.
