Past Weekly Bulletins
Hopefully you had a terrific week, but of course you did, after all you are a RollingStock100 member...aren't you?! This Weekly Update is rather lengthy, so get some coffee and kick your shoes off.
One thing nice about sending out the Weekly Update is that very few (like maybe two?) of who receive it actually know me, the real "behind the scenes" LLH. So, every now and then it seems appropriate to allow a fragment of information about myself to leak out. It's fun to think of this notion as, but one more brush stroke towards the completion of a picture within oneís mind. After all, a person who's a quickly read, open book isn't much of a challenge to figure out (boring,) but the opposite sort is thought to be one of life's small joys. It's great to slowly piece together a mystery, to watch something or someone become a complete entity, little by little, within the power of your imagination.
Yes, you're correct in assuming by my comments that I've had a great week. The past week's trades have treated me well, in fact both types of trades have treated me well, the ones on Wall Street and those that caress and cool the Hawaiian Islands, where the RollingStock100 currently hangs its hat.
And here I sit in a somber, dark room, quietly poised before the shallow light of the monitor. It's late, very late; muted sounds from my favorite talk radio program form mental pictures of what's to become of mankind in the not so distant future. You see the intriguingly weird "out there" topics are the ones that truly peek my interest. This, for me, sets the stage for serious thought. During such sliver's of time musings from the recent past tend to surface. The setting allows them to be calmly reconsidered and if deemed worthy, acted upon as well.
Through this mild delirium it seems plausible to run every combination of stock symbols, consisting of one to four characters through an on-line charting service. This came to mind because of the simplicity of taking every letter in the alphabet and putting them in every combination that can be had. Hmmm...use 26 letters in one through four combinations. Simple, but somewhat time consuming initially, not for you though, just for me. What if a person typed out every combination of stock symbols and saved them to a MS Word document? Then selected, copied, and pasted them with their cursor/browser into the charting field of a favorite research site? Wouldnít that give them virtually every stock symbol in existence to scroll through at their leisure? Of course there are some, such as stocks with warrants, that wouldnít fit the bill, but even still youíd have a hell of a lot of stock charts to consider. Perhaps this could be used as an alternative to or in combination with TC2000 and/or other stock screens.
Iíve started to put together this heap of symbols. After running a test on what Iíve completed so far, all the single and double characters, many were found to not exist in E*Tradeís data base, which is where I most often go to run charts. Itís really quite remarkable. These symbols were broken down into a couple of smaller groups then the 702 symbols were pasted into E*Trade. This number is the total of every combination of letters for one and two charter symbols. Of these 314 couldnít be found in their data base. Not to worry though, E*Tradesí charting program automatically sorts them all out for you and tells you which one couldnít be found. Nevertheless, a wide variety of stocks were laid out before me at one time, totaling 388. Itís actually a bit overwhelming, but yet convenient and simple at the same time.
The 702 symbols, mentioned above are on the List of Rollersí page on the web site. Putting them on this email would make it quite bulky. You can copy and paste them, and get to E*Tradeís chart field the same way you run the charts in our list. Just log-in, scroll down, and youíll find them near the normal wad of symbols that are always there.
Over the following week, the plan is to finish off the collection up to and through four characters. If any of this sounds intriguing to you, then head on over to the List of Rollers page. Hopefully the completed project will be posted prior to next weekend. If you run the charts youíll be surprised how many picture perfect rollers youíll encounter, many are over the $25.00 limit imposed at RollingStock100, but if you feel they fit your needs, check them out. You may prefer to use a different site to run the charts. If so, keep in mind that it may be necessary to paste the symbols into the chart field in small quantities.
The nine new Rollers added to our List this week were in fact uncovered by using this method. Expect to see an influx of Rollers getting sent in, due to this process. Of the stock charts that were ran through E*Trade it's possible that a few of the more decent Rollers were missed. On the other hand, after you evaluate the process you may not be all that impressed by it. In that event, Iím confident you can be counted on to point out any shortcomings to me ASAP.
Hold on to your boots and high heels this might come as a shock, 21 stocks were taken off the List this week. In the long run this is a very positive move. Please put them on your watch list and give me a holler if/when any of them come back to life. The reason for dropping the majority of them was because they simply stopped rolling. A couple were dumped due to excessively wide spreads or showing too narrow of a cycle to produce a profit.
Check them out, run their charts, if you see something I didnít send an email and Iíll be happy to reconsider adding certain ones back on. Between the new stocks that were added and old ones which were deleted, our number of Rollers on the List is now at 86. To be honest about it, I could have pulled a few more. Because of recent positive earnings reports they were spared, but may still get yanked within the next couple of weeks if in fact they donít do a turn around.

Something new at the web site:
Work is in progress for the addition of a tutorial. For those who find the site confusing, itíll prove helpful. Watch for it over the next week or two.
Jeff has put together another interesting Soapbox and thereís some email posted for you to read through, way down below. The charts on the RollingStock100 will be out of sorts until Monday. My real job has me at work for the majority of this weekend, thus throwing off my regular schedule. Enjoy the day, give Mom a hug for me, and above all...have a grrrreat WEEK!

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.
The Weekly Bulletin is emailed out as part of the Weekly Update. If you're under the impression that receiving a regular, free dosage of our seemingly endless babble, along with an updated list of our 100 Rollers and questions from other members would be a good thing...click the "SUBSCRIBE" link at either the top or bottom of this page.
