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 taking any action based on information on this website.
A few moments ago, I unloaded my remaining 200 shares of Davita (DVA), the renal dialysis company, at $42.29/share. I purchased these shares at a cost basis of $36.29/share on 12/6/04, for a gain of $6.00/share or 16.5%. I sold because of news of a federal investigation into the accounting practices and chose not to ride this one out. Hopefully, I have not once again been "shaken out" of Davita unnecessarily.
I have owned Davita once before in 2003, and sold on news that turned out not to be fundamentally significant...so I may have done it once again...:).
In any case, with a sale of shares on "bad news" I am once again sitting on my hands, applying the proceeds of that sale to my margin...and waiting for a sale on "good news" before adding or replacing that position.
Thanks so much for visiting. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
