Hello Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog, Stock Picks Bob's Advice. As always, please remember that I am an amateur investor, so please consult with your professional investment advisors prior to making any investment decisions based on information on this website!
I got a chance to check my "Trading Portfolio" a few moments ago, and was pleased to learn that another of my stocks had hit a sale point on the upside. This time, Quality Systems (QSII), which as I write is trading at $86.70, up $4.02 or 4.86% on the day, hit a sale point.
For those of you who might be new to my "strategy", I have a very disciplined (usually) buy and sell strategy. I sell my losers quickly at (8)% losses, and sell my winners slowly. I sell portions of winners (1/4 of my existing position) at set sale points of 30%, 60%, 90%, 120%, and then by 60% intervals at 180%, 240%, 300%, and 360%....I haven't had any with this strategy at the upper end of this range...but at that point would go by 90% intervals selling 1/4....etc.
Moments ago, as I wrote, I sold 22 shares (of my 90 share position) of QSII at $86.72/share. I had originally purchased Quality Systems (QSII) at a cost basis of $31.00/share on 7/28/03. I had sold portions of QSII four times already (!), being that this was my fifth sale, I had been waiting for a 180% gain level. Based on my $31 purchase price, I had a gain of $55.72/share or 179.7%, hitting my sale point!
Another thing. Since I am under my 25 position goal for my portfolio, I use a sale at a gain in one of my existing positions as a "green light" to add a new position. That nickel is ALREADY burning a hole in my pocket!
Again, thanks so much for stopping by! If I find anything and purchase a new position, I will keep all of you posted. If you have any comments, questions, or words of encouragement, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
