Not a lot of stocks showed up on the list...the Dow was down 79.40 at 9,117.10 and the Nasdaq closed down 27.13 at 1,626.49.
It has been suggested to me that we should review some of our past suggestions. Well Happy Birthday to us. This site is only one month old now and we have already 58 entries! I hope you can read all of them.
Our first pick on 5/12/03 was Saint Jude Medical, the medical equipment maker. Trading at that time at $55.30, it has closed today at $61.89. Unfortunately, even I didn't buy any shares. That is a $6.59 gain in the month or an 11.9% appreciation.
JCOM was out second pick, and being a NEWBY at posting I don't have the price on the post. It is now trading at $33.50, and looking at a graph of the price of JCOM, I believe it was around $30...but we won't count this one officially.
On May 14th, I posted HLEX at $5.70. Healthextras, Inc. ...HLEX closed today at $7.06. This is a HUGE gain of $1.36/share or a 23.8% gain since our post.
May 15th was the post date for AHS at $10.05. AHS closed today at $12.27. This is a pick up of $2.22, or 22%.
On May 16th, we posted Agree Realty, ADC, at $23.41. ADC closed today at $24.70 a gain of $1.29. This is a 5.5% gain on the month.
May 19th we posted DNA, Genentech, at $53.04. DNA closed today at $72.90 or a gain of $19.86 or 37.4% on the month.
Next week will try to review some of the later posts. I think it is wise to give each of these picks at least a month before we review them...like this but WOW, I know it was a good month in the market....but look at this performance!
Have a great weekend!
