Change, 8:40 a.m. Monday...... will go this week with CWS (long) China Winds Systems. It's the only one that appears as if it may open down from last Friday close, so perhaps after a lousy open it may improve during the week. Appears very cheap near $2 and a few cents change. I agree with an old Rovo post, the name is a bit misleading and needs a change, such as "China Forged products" or more descriptive of actual current business.... forged rings for wind turbines, solar frames, textile machinery, etc. Warning: I do not recommend this stock. Strictly a speculatiom for a one year hold on new business prospects,
I did well by stealing Arch's mount last week; this week, I'll steal rovo's AAPL and go long. Hopefully, rovo has been taking good care of it. ETA: Oops! I just read rovo's journal. 'Eh, I'm too lazy to change the pick.

Void this pick: LEI (Lucas Energy). (Long) I'm picking this one again sort of expecting it to once again start trending up after a fairly lengthy decline. It closed Friday at $2.70 & the 52 wk. high/low is $5.23/$1.31 If I weren't quite so sleepy, I'd search for a symbol that I would prefer over LEI
.......................................................................... A CHANGE IN MY PICK FOR THIS WEEK: CSII (Cardiovascular Systems Inc) (long) closed Friday at $14.74 I think this one will be better for a 5 day horse race.
Looks like a giant drop on today's opening prices. I'm going to play the Dow long as we will probably recover some during the week. This is just a guess for the purposes of this game and I will not be making any similar plays in real life. UDOW is +300% of the DJIA.
Jeez. I didn't think I would create a crises by referring to those in the lead as the "big dogs".
SlowbutSure said: What? I'm not a big dog? Are you telling me I yap too much?
Now how can I respond to that comment? I could try ..... Yes SBS, you are a big dog. .... Me thinks she may have a comeback for me and most likely not a very polite comment at that. So maybe I'll just say to her ..... SBS you can be whatever you want to be.
