Past Weekly Bulletins
I’m pleased to announce that my ever, nimble fingers have returned to their home on the keyboard. It feels good to be a part of the Weekly Update again and I can honestly say that I missed you. The past few weeks have provided me with a variety of bumps, but September’s over (thank God.) I’m back now and am ready to slide into my well-worn groove… so on with the shooe.
Thanks for continuing to send in those great Rollers! Your contributions are the life-blood of this Update and the web site as well. This week a special Thanks goes to Bridgette who has sent in an exceptional group of Rollers, which you’ll find sprinkled across our List and to Jeff Hudson who without, we wouldn’t have much, if any, replies to the email.
Upon running charts for all of our Rollers, I was surprised to see how many have gone down the toilet! Now I’m wondering if the List has looked this bad all along? Maybe I needed to back away from it for awhile… couldn’t see the forest for the trees? Possibly, it’s just a coincidence that many of the stocks have taken a plunge or stopped Rolling during the couple of weeks that I wasn’t watching? I don’t know which it was, but whatever the case, I slashed and burned my way through the List, tossing many to the wayside. No doubt you’d rather look at less than 100 good Rollers, rather than over 100 that aren’t so good. No need to despair though, several new stocks were slid in, so the length of the List hasn’t changed much.
The primary guideline used for pulling a Roller from the List is the number of times it has rolled in the last thirty trading days, which should be at least once (that’s not asking for too much… is it?) The second most important factor is the percentage of room for profit taking that is left after the spread is subtracted from the breath of the stock’s cyclic range, shooting for a minimum of 10% seems to put you in a safe zone. Keep in mind that it’s necessary to double the loss incurred by the spread when figuring this. The reason is a stock has to be bought and sold before a profit can be realized. Thus, allowing the cost of the spread to reach into your pocket twice. Another characteristic sought after is volume, anything over 100,000 shares traded daily makes for a stock that’s likely to be easily sold when it hits your predetermined selling price. Many traders like to use 50,000 as a minimum, while a select few prefer a million. All I can say on this subject is “bigger IS better,” but it must also be stated that to a lesser extent, good Rollers with relatively small volume do exist.
After reflecting on what’s been written above, it makes me wonder if perhaps having a list of ten or twenty wouldn’t be more practical? This thought plows through my mind pulled by the vision of an adjoining list of stocks, comprised of Rollers that are not currently Rolling, but are expected to start up again in the near future. This could make the List, although smaller, more dynamic. Of course then I’d have to change the name of the web site to RollingStock10or20.com. Ah, to hell with it… I’ll leave it as it is.
By the way, there are now 430 members on our Weekly Update email list and 81 on the open email version.
The Soap Box
Hello Fellow Trader,
This past week has not been a good one for me...so this first letter and response should help answer any questions everyone has about the state of the RollingStock Updates.
From: "J. Anderson"
Subject: Re: RollingStock SoapBox and emails Sept 18
Just wondering if I was missing getting the Weekly Update somehow, with stocks and suggested buy/sell prices. I know you guys are busy...should I be looking for this list on the website instead? I'll check there. I haven't seen one in a month...?...via email. Please don't take offense--just checking if I'm out of the loop somewhere.
No you haven't missed anything, I'm just very behind on updating the List, but do plan on being back up to speed by Saturday. You'll be receiving a fully updated List via email this weekend. Thanks for writing, your patience is appreciated."
For myself, there have been some nasty bugs around here, I had the stomach bug and didn't feel up to doing much at all. It was an effort to just watch my stocks at times, my wife knew I was sick when I wasn't spending time on the computer or net. Hopefully things are back normal for LLh and myself and we can get back to the way things should be. Jeff
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.
