Past Weekly Bulletins
Whether you are receiving this update for the first time or have been a wild, screaming, stock roll'in member since Rover was a pup, the following information should prove useful.
Remember from last week’s Update it was thought that DCTI and VION would cruise up the ladder to make us a few bucks? Upon Friday’s close I wiped my brow, opened my eyes and to my surprise saw that DCTI had made a small increase over the week, but good old VION really blew my skirt up (blew my skirt up…I’m a guy…that’s a joke) with an increase of about $7. Last week at this time it was resting at about the $16. mark and ultimately hit a high of $23. on Friday. Thanks VION! You made me look like I know what I’m doing!! ZONA was left with a question mark beside it (thankfully) and unfortunately dropped about a buck.

If you do attend one of the classes please write in so the rest of the crew can hear how it went.
And there I was, all alone on a desolate section of the Internet's Tundra commonly known as the E*Trade Quotes & Search page http://www.etrade.com/cgi-bin/gx.cgi/applogic+ResearchStock?GXHC_VCODE=W , when I remembered something I'd read in Gregory Witt's book about Rolling Stocks. Of the many informative sections, one discussing Syncopated rolls popped into my mind's ever vigilant eye. What are Syncopated Rolls you might ask? Syncopated is actually a term used in music. According to my friend Mr. Webster it means to begin a note on an unaccented beat and continue it through the next accented beat. Witt uses it in describing a method of buying and selling Rolling Stocks.
To test out his theory you have to find at least two Rolling Stocks that are rolling the opposite of each other. All this means is when one of the chosen stocks is at the top of a roll the other has to be at the bottom of its roll. When comparing the two stocks on the same chart they should weave up and down the chart in opposite directions, only meeting at midway points. Okay, why would we want to do this? Witt's reason is that while studying charts of hundreds of Rolling Stocks and he found the same basic pattern to be evident in the vast majority of companies. The rise is generally faster than the fall, in fact, frequently twice as much.
This to him seemed to defy nature. He was surprised to see such a pattern, since the same is not the case with trending stock. Stocks with a strong up-trend generally take longer to climb and then get slammed in a sudden plunge. So, here's the moral of his story: "don't let grass grow under your feet." In the time you're waiting for the stock to make its slide back down to the buy range, put your cash to work with another Rolling Stocks. Hence, enter syncopated rolls.
I found this rather intriguing and ran a few charts to see how it would work. Other than time consuming I didn't see a whole lot of use in running charts in this manner, but I've missed other things that were later pointed to be the greatest thing since canned peaches.
If you would like to experiment with this follow the directions below...
Plug in some symbols from our List of Rollers that have the most pronounced rolling patterns into the window for charts at the above link. After the charts come up hit the "Customize" link listed after "View all charts as:". Now you're going to see a panel providing you with chart setting options; of these options look for the window that says "Compare to Symbols:". In this window paste in as many as three of the symbols from out List into the window and click "Draw Chart." What comes up is quite interesting, although I don't know how useful this information is to any of us. Perhaps you'll see something earth shattering that I didn't. Members of E*Trade can log-in and enjoy more options than this link provides, but for today this will do fine.
By the way, while you're there check out the row of links above the charts as well; e.g., Insiders, Technical, Options, etc.
PPOD has been pulled from the List because it's gone to seed.
STAR has been pulled from the List because it hasn’t had a note worthy roll in almost two months (a roll should move enough to at least cover 10% of the stock’s price.)
SCRM hasn't been pulled from the List, but beware! More information is in an email between Jet and Jeff below in our email segment.

From: GeoRock: you wanted to know of any free services that regularly pump useful stock related information into your email box. I have one: www.splittrader.com . You have to register, and can register for www.netbulls.com at the same time. These are excellent. Even if you don't play the particular stocks they mention, just reading the daily updates on market direction is worth signing up for these sites.
And...Oh yeah, the web site...
Over time many Traders have commented on books relevant to trading stocks. Often the impression was given that the books were difficult to find or just a pain to look up. In response to this learning crisis an emergency meeting was called of the top RollingStock100 staff. Okay, since Jeff couldn't make it that left only me, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a productive meeting. Upon conclusion it was decided to post direct links to as many books as could be found at Amazon.com that have anything to do with personal finances.
Amazon.com was chosen over the other companies because they are huge, reasonably priced, and provide a fast, dependable service for their customers. A search of Amazon surfaced 54 books, all of which are supposedly popular. Most of the books are specifically about stocks, to include Gregory Witts' "Rolling Stocks, Making Money on the Ups and Downs" and a few about Options trading. All are now on the web site, each book cover is a direct link to more information about that particular book at Amazon, where you'll find a shopping cart and the option to pay on-line with your favorite credit card.
I'm not posting these books for profit. As you'll see the links take you directly to Amazon who also receives your payment. Hopefully adding this service will simplify the process of finding the best books for all concerned. To take a peek at RollingStock100's "Book Shelf" just click this link http://members.tripod.com/LLH_on_Rolling_Stock/The_Book_Shelf.html . After reviewing The Book Shelf let me know if you have other titles that should be added.

I know what your thinking... What idiot?! Would have seven different message boards for their web site and post the identical information on each!? Well the answer is simple...LLH that's who :-0) If you've read this far you're probably expecting to stumble upon my reasoning for this about now? So here it is: each of my message boards are located in popular "communities" catering primarily to the financially minded web surfer. When one of these investing voyagers of the net drift onto one of the RollingStock100 message boards, the inclination is to click over and check out the web site that's sponsoring it...namely this one, RollingStock100.com! It's just a method of attracting future members by giving them a trail of bread crumbs to follow.
