China Infrastructure Investment Corp. (CIIC) is setting up to be my next massive winner on the short side…a solid looking multi-newsletter pump, let it rage and roar and message boards will love it and then the music will stop and I will collect on my short…I can envision the entire trades 1-2 days before I even make it because it’s the same trade I’ve been making for a decade…the same pattern in myand all …potential short, please learn the pattern.
AspenBio Pharma, Inc. (APPY) was a great short from 5 to 4 for the first hour today, then it gradually rose all day and actually finished green, which will likely create a short squeeze tomorrow…this kind of choppy price action is actually healthy since it shakes out weak longs and pulls in short sellers, this could very well breakout, but we have to see what the momentum will be like/the fortitude of the shorts…potential short if volume starts to dry up, potential buy if it can break above 5 convincingly.
Positron Corp. (POSC) just keeps dropping another 20% as the company tried to update their lackluster press release with further lackluster press releases…says they are still long the stock, but that “long POSC” disclaimer disappeared on their Friday and Monday posts so either it was a typo or I don’t know what…now they say there will be an “updated” CEO interview tomorrow…very questionable passages like “Some key details about a big partnership which will be revealed at the press conference can not be discussed until early May,”…I HOPE Garza and BMR can come through with their thinking that “we fully expect that the stock will trade higher as the press conference date approaches” so I can reshort the stock if it spikes again as at 16 cents/share, it’s just not worth my time/risk, potential reshort, but somehow I think this will fade into oblivion like most other companies with short-seller friendly annual reports like that of POSC.
Ante4, Inc. (ANTF) was like ROHI on the first down day but as I explained in the StockGoodies interview the other night (which had server problems, they apologize to all of you who wanted to get in…don’t worry, it’s recorded), it didn’t look at tempting, it was flat all day today, technical support just below on multiple timeframes, no definitive play but if it can’t bounce then it’s a potential short.
Rotech Healthcare Inc. (ROHI) I was right for a 23% intraday drop, but I only stuck around for 7% of that drop as it didn’t do the morning panic I wanted and the rest of the drop was probly due to the overall market mixed with the stock’s excessive runup over the past few days…congrats to everyone who had more patience than me, sometimes that’s a good thing, but sometimes it’s dangerous…so I made $1,778 and could’ve made more, no regrets, I stay disciplined and look for specific patterns and I get out when they don’t work out…no play now, still a potential short for the aggressive (not me)
Dearborn Bancorp Inc. (DEAR), Crescent Banking Co. (CSNT)
Pacific Capital Bancorp (PCBC), Midwest Banc Holdings, Inc. (MBHI), Eurobancshares Inc (EUBK), Frontier Financial Corporation (FTBK) did exactly what I thought they would do, they all pulled PCBC-like 20-40% intraday drops…good shorting for many people, I almost shorted FTBK in the morning, but was scared out by takeover rumors and a morning spike…that one only faded late in the day when they denied the rumors, all the others were nice and gradual and I shoulda woulda coulda focused on them…still feeling pretty good about my DEAR buy, normally I don’t make any money on these financials so I am satisfied….no play now on any of them.
TiVo Inc. (TIVO), Sonic Solutions (SNIC) and IMAX Corporation (IMAX) were the hottest “new technology” stocks the other day, then when the overall market tanks, these get hit hardest….which is why naïve CNBC viewers lose tons and their ratings are plummeting as if they were Goldman Sachs reputation…yes, I said potential buys, but when the overall market is not its usually bullish state, that option is out the window…still potential buys on any big pullbacks as people in Portugal and Greece don’t really use these products ☺
