AHD – A double on no news but an upgrade? Short on red. I have fond memories of the last NYSE MLP I shorted, USS (from back in July 2008).
ATHX – Whoa, Momma! Unsupportable move, but hey, I’m long-biased now. This thing was a no-brainer buy on the break of the high today. I’d consider buying it on green tomorrow. ATHX is the new NLST! Could also be a good short on red.
CIIC – Yeah, baby! A 90% move on no news? I’m eager to short this crappy China stock. I’d consider longing it on green, too, but my bet is it falls 20% tomorrow.
NVLT – Nice move, less interesting to me than the stocks above, especially considering it is an OTC BB stock.

AHD over a million shares to short at IB.
Awesome watchlist, I may get a chance to play tomorrow….maybe.
There have been some great moves that we have both missed, but as you always say you do not have to trade everyday….ha, but it does suck sometimes.
Yikes I almost put AHD on my short list for today (Tuesday), but I already had APL and it looked to me like they were the same douchebags.
SUPR could be a nice short if it fails to break 4, lots of resistance there, and no news for the move today. Volume is very low.
ADES on green with volume could be nice, or short on red possibly.
MTG closed strong with good volume but has resistance at 7ish, would short if it fails to break.
LCC is very close to breaking out on 6 month chart on great volume, small ADR.
I’m long-biased now
Whoah , that’s a 180. You basing this off market direction/momentum or is this philosophy/lifestyle change?
well belated welcome to the light side of the force anyway Jedi.
No, I have not joined the light side. I just am trying to get myself to be able to play things both long and short. It is about as difficult as becoming bisexual is … it just feels unnatural to buy things. But for NLST that was where the easy money was and for ATHX yesterday.
How can you see that CIIC is a crappy Chinese stock?
I am skeptical of any small-cap Chinese companies.
Reaper I hear you loud and clear trying to erase the short only bias. Since I started TimAlerts I’ve had trouble going long on anything but long term, non day trading issues.
I agree…once you get used to going short it can be a mental shift back to long. I have been swing trading my account lately to build it back up from a couple of rather “questionable” trades a while back.
I have shares of AHD reserved at TOS today just in case…
have a great day trading!
Already long LVS, SLV and C for today and Short AES.
Wow SMOD really took off this morning, squeezing those early shorts at 5 dollars. they should really read tim’s strategy.
No soup for you! Stop fixating on boring stocks, at least when there are so many better ones today.
My first decent trade of the month! +$491.56 on 1k shares of AHD
Well today one of the best watchlist if ever seen AHD and CIIC are definetly paying for the cristhmas presents.ATHX…i dont know, too much volume for a small fish like me.
Thank your Reaper
Feel free to send my some #5 as a thank you!
+100 on CGEN long 1000 shares, my first profitable long in, well a long time.
SUPR was a nice play from my watch, to bad I didn’t play it.
Don’t be too sad: only 35k shares traded so far today.
Yeah just noticed that, I was kinda excited that my pick went the right way and I missed looking at the volume.
I messed up not flipping CGEN too.
CGEN holding support, possible bounce play.
Up like $50 on 500 shares of CHTL. and 500 shares of SNSS….
Not sure why i took such a small position in CHTL… that was a clear breakout.
is CENX a breakout?..
GNVC nice b/o chart.
CHTL was a nice play John.
CENX is a slow mover and small ADR but it is breaking out.
I didn’t have the balls to buy CGEN when it held support at 4.80ish, that was a clear play too, or am I wrong in my thinking there…..
PSDV nice fade, possible short.
Made money on AHD along with you, Reaper, shorting at 6.90 and covering in the low 6’s
I’m trying to get better at going long, too….but I definitely perform way better from the short side
CGEN breaking 4.80 would be a good short.
wow, there goes CGEN.
CAMT nice b/o but low volume.
CGEN picture perfect support break at 4.80.
PSDV on 5 break may be the same.
Okay, no one else will say it, so I will: I nailed the call on ATHX today! Not that I played it, though. 🙂
you did indeed, but there will come time to short it hard, we’ll wait for that 🙂
Good call this morning on AHD — too bad I had shares but missed it due to a phone call…did not want to get caught chasing it.
Currently “all in” on F – it broke the 10.00 point so anything can happen now. I will not have a lot of time to trade till next year so am doing more of these larger plays with presetup stop for both profit and loss.
So far it has worked well — up 3k in the past 3 weeks. Only 5k to go to even.
Great website, first time here
Great call on your watchlist Michael, not a bad day all around.
Oh yeah, what’s up with the soup?
Did I miss something important in my slight absence.
Oh I just didn’t think his comment was worth a negative duck, so I just quoted the soup Nazi.
ROTFLMAO, yes, I love the soup Nazi.
Welcome aboard gil, great site here.
