Past Weekly Bulletins
Been knocking myself out on the web site this weekend. The List of Rollers page that you have to Log into to view, has been vastly improved. Now each of our listed stocks has a 3 month chart hanging right below it. It seemed to me that youíd appreciate being able to view my suggested Buy and Sell prices along with the stockís chart all at one time. Now, of course there is a draw back. With 74 charts on one web page, the load time is noticeably slower, nothing you canít handle though. The page loads from the top to the bottom, so youíll be able to start viewing the Buy and Sell prices, as well as the charts immediately upon entering the page. The charts towards the lower end of the List will finish loading up while youíre still hanging around the upper part of the List.
When youíre on the List of Rollers page, keep in mind that the charts are from Friday, December 10, 1999. Itís likely that they wonít automatically update, and if thatís the case, Iíll only be able to update them on the weekends. Weíll have to see how it goes.
If you happen to blow through www.RollingStock100.com and want to log-in, please remember that the "Memberís Login" is located on the Home Page and the List of Rollers page. The link is in bold, brown text. The green login box near the top of each web page is only for logging into the personal email accounts. Itís not for logging on to the List of Roller page. If you have suggestions about where to place more links for logging in, please send them.
A new look was given to The Classroom over the weekend as well. Take a look at http://members.tripod.com/LLH_on_Rolling_Stock/Classroom.html . Send in your ideas on content and design. We want The Classroom to be as user friendly and functional as possible. Thereís a plan in the drawing room, of RollingStock100ís vast headquarters, for breaking down The Classroom into forty individual pages, one per subject. This would greatly increase the load time for those of us with a clicking fetish.
Sorry I didnít get to comment in detail, on our Rollers, like I did last week; but I just couldnít squeeze both, the webmaster and stock analyst jobs, into such a small amount of time. Iíll make up for it next week. Of course, the Buy and Sell prices did get updated.
FYI, we now have the following numbers:
RollingStock100 Discussion Group Weekly Update = 469 RollingStock100 Discussion Group Weekly Update "open email" = 119 RollingStocks100.zzn.com personal email accounts = 96 Number of Rolling Stocks on the List = 74
P.S. We had a nice shipment of Rollers sent in over the past week. Thank you for participating. In fact, there were enough that Jeff couldnít quite get through all of them, so more will be trickling out to you next week.
Hello fellow Roller,
A couple of weeks ago I asked LLH to put some tighter restrictions on the requirements on stocks for the Rolling Stock list. One of the restrictions I asked for was the price should not be under $5.00. After reading and looking at some of Rob's picks for stocks under $5 it occurred to me that I was forgetting how I started on the Rolling Stock road. One of Rob's picks, CRH (Coram Healthcare) was probably my first successful trade from the Rolling Stock list. I traded it twice, first from March 25 to April 13 for a nice 21% gain and then traded the stock a second time from 4-30 to 5-19 for another 20% gain. I had traded ALMI several times before I found the Rolling Stock website but I was familiar with the theory based on the Wade Cook books.
Right now I am looking for stocks that can be traded in a margin account so the added restriction of $5 was somewhat of a personal preference, however if I insisted on keeping that restriction I would probably be doing a disservice to all the readers of this newsletter. So I have sent LLH a request to lift that new $5 restriction. The only problem I have to resolve now is how much time to allocate to looking at the lower priced stocks when someone sends them in. Right now I am leaning toward passing the emails on to you but if the price is below a certain level ($2 or so), I will not do a great deal of DD on these stocks but let you decide whether you want to play the lower priced picks.
We have discussed Rolling Stock and writing covered calls in the past few issues. I now have my Webstreet account set up so I can write covered calls, this new method of trading is taking up much more of my time. I enjoy reading and answering the emails but like LLH, I have to put some restriction on how much time I spend on the newsletter. So if some of my answers about lower priced stocks are short, please forgive me at the present time. Hopefully after the Holiday season rush and becoming comfortable with option/covered call trading I can put more time back into researching the picks that you send in.
While beginning to research my first pick from the list that I can write covered calls on, AKLM popped up on my radar screen. The stock price is down quite a bit and it is out of the lower Bollinger band when you look at the chart. There is no 'bad news' that I could find, a new game cartridge was released for the Christmas season so right now seems to be a good time to jump in on this stock at the first sign of upward movement. The Stochastic is still heading down so there is time to take a look at this one before deciding on what action to take.
Wishing everyone a Happy Holiday season and a prosperous New Year. 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.
