    Since there is not a stock forum, I figure i will start a thread here. I would like this just to be a post to bring stocks to light, not try to convince people to buy into any particular stock, as that will only cause trouble and hard feelings between members, especially in this market.

    Anyway, stocks on watch for today 21 Jan 09

    -JCDS rumors of news comming out, not a typical penny company, building a large client base including NEOFirma (My ONLY penny play)

    -DNA. nice news today with great profits. We Might get a 5%+ pop, but in this overall down market recently who knows. She bounced off support yesterday.

    "Genentech Posts $931 Million 4Q Profit, an Industrial Info News AlertHighlighted Links

    -GNW, again on watch, played it a few times the last month, currently out looking for a chance to get back in.


    -RZ, a long term with good potential that needs to find a bottom.

    -GFG took a 31% hit yesterday, not sure why. Watch for a bounce.

    -IVA, been an easy flip from .16-.20 for the past 6 months. Low to no volume, so not much opportunity for large money.


    Spread the word on the board, I know we have some active traders here.

    Good day in the market today, I suspect tomorrow will be another green if we can break resistance.

    DNA up 1%, GNW up 19%, GFG up 18%, RZ up 5%. 43% today not bad :cool:

    The market as a whole had a nice green candle today. It Needs some confirmation and break through heavy resistance around the 8250 level.

    New stocks
    CNO - up 21% and chart is kickin
    FTBK - up 15%, looks to be rebounding, don't want it to drop below the $2 support level.
    -ETFC -Etrade is up 20%. nice strong candle, resistance at $1.25 area.

    For Penny plays
    -JCDS is at a buy now after someone walked it down today.
    -EESO up 94% today, some nice momo, if you like a lotto should keep going tomorrow but who knows, i'm staying out of it as I don't know anything about the company. If your a momo player it looks pretty good.

    Minimal amount of trading...and yeah I am still in the military. I look for value more than really digging and doing research on up and comers.

    I'm looking into buying GE or BOA, pretty good values right now.

    Edit, I mostly invest in mutual funds...

    From the chart of GE, I'd wait and see if the market bounces off 7500 again, that's just me. If it does bounce off 7500 again I'd say buy. If 7500 doesn't hold, you just saved a lot of money...

    You've got to be the bravest man in America to buy GE or BAC. Financials are dead. You can't trust their financials nor the management. They have no growth and may be in a big downturn. One of the only things I did right was not buying Financials when everyone said they were at a bottom.

    I was looking at Airlines but their charts seem to have blownup. Check out ALK. Gold is starting to look good. Besides those two, I don't see squat that is any good.

    GE is only part a financials company though, last year I believe 40% of their profit came from their financial arm. Even in this last quarter when they made 44% less than the same quarter last year they pulled down a 3.7 billion dollar profit. Right now at GE's prices (currently $12.03) you are getting a 10% dividend (0.31 cents per share every quarter). When Buffet bought his 3 billion dollars of preffered shares a few months ago he got them for 22.50 I believe and a guaranteed 10% dividend. Now we have the chance to get the same dividend but a better share price. GE paid its dividend through the great depression, I don't think they will be having a problem with our current situation.

    SAY, big fall after some news, looks like it's going to bounce after a powerful up day friday.


    For a long term, USO, one of many oil stocks. Might have found bottom and at a many year low. It's oil, could be an easy double + in a 6 months to a year. Closed up on rumors of opec cutting jobs which would decrease supply.......

    Just a couple I'm looking at for today.
