The Weekly Bulletin
Past Weekly Bulletins


Hope you’ve had a prosperous week. On a personal note: Maui was great, the wife is happy... Life is good!

Now back to business.

As stated last week, a harvest of new Rolling Stock symbols, four characters in length, would start to appear in this week’s Update. The following few paragraphs provide an overview of what’s been going on behind the scenes to make sure that, that would happen...

The method used for digging up new Rollers, at RollingStock100, is very methodical and simple. Every combination of letters in our alphabet is used, A-ZZZZ. As you can guess this equates to thousands upon thousands of possible symbols to run charts on. The term “possible symbols” is used here because understandably, a great percentage of the letter combinations aren’t recognized as stock symbols at all. That doesn’t matter though, since the charting program automatically sorts them all out, bringing up all the charts for whatever symbols happen to be in its data base while setting the others neatly off to the side.

This obscenely high number of letter combinations as been broken down into 27 groups, totaling 474,578 possible symbols to check out. Beginning with group A-ZZZ, followed by group AAAA-AZZZ, then group BAAA-BZZZ, and so on, ending with group ZAAA-ZZZZ. By doing a smidgen of math it’s pointed out that the first group, A-ZZZ, consists of 17,602 letter combinations. The remaining 26 groups each carry 17,576 combinations. Wow...no wonder my clicking finger gets sore. You’d likely be surprised at what a low percentage, of the combinations, are actually stock symbols...I know I was.

To date, this one-man, Rolling Stock factory has only gotten through BAAA-BZZZ. However, even though not much more than a dent has been made in this mountain of material, one must take into consideration the tremendous number of quality Rollers added last week alone, 68 if memory serves. This week another 18 have been added and there are still 24 groups left to rummage through. After all of the groups have been mulled over (many weeks from now,) the process will be started all over again.

Sorry to bore you with a mess of numbers, but it’s important that RollingStock100’s method of madness be understood. Hopefully this explanation has shown that I’m not stumbling through all of this like some character in never-never land. The plan is to be as thorough as possible, while in pursuit of stocks to add to our List of Rollers. You must admit that one cannot be much more thorough than this. No doubt there are smarter and better ways to search for Rolling Stocks, but none more thorough.

Stock screens/filters have never given me a warm and fuzzy. A strong feeling of missing out on seeing the charts of some tremendous Rollers has always loomed overhead whenever I’ve used them. That is to say, I’ve never felt secure about not having the opportunity to see the stocks that fall through the cracks when screening...the ones that don’t fit the mold. Now that’s not a problem. If you should decide to look over the pages of letter combinations on the web site, you’ll find only the first three or four of the total 27 groups are complete. Each group will have its own page. Week by week the web pages will be built, and while doing so the best of the newly found Rollers will be added to our List.

P.S. My clicking finger is getting stronger :~)
If you'd like to view the past Weekly Bulletins, there are a variety of places to go. Take you're pick! You'll find they're easily accessible for your viewing at Delphi Forums, RS100's Premium Board, Yahoo! Clubs, MSN Clubs, The Motley Fool, Lycos Clubs, and The Raging Bull.

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.
