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 remember to consult with your professional investment advisors prior to making any investment decisions based on information on this website.
A few moments ago, I realized that my Sybron Dental shares (SYD) hit a sale "target price." Before selling 37 shares, I had 150 shares remaining in my SYD position, and I sold 37 a few moments ago at $41.57. These shares were purchased 11/18/03, at a cost basis of $25.84/share, so I had a gain of $15.73/share or 60.9% gain. This was my second sale of shares of SYD. I had originally purchased 200 shares and sold 50 shares 1/16/04 at $31.31 which represented a gain of $5.47/share on those shares or a gain of actually only 21.2% (thus, I pulled the plug on those shares a bit early...normally selling at 30% gain level.)
Anyhow, since I am at 25 positions in my actual trading portfolio, I shall be sitting on my hands, not adding any new positions, and continuing to work at paying down my sizeable, but fortunately shrinking, margin level!
