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 advisers prior to making any investment decisions based on information on this website.
Well that nickel didn't last long in my pocket did it? (some surprise?) Having a 'permission slip' to buy another position, I went right to the top % gainers list today and came across an old favorite of mine, VCA Antech (WOOF) which was on the list of top % gainers on the NASDAQ and is trading at $39.05, up $2.98 or 8.23% on the day as I write.
I say "old favorite" as I first wrote up this stock on March 17, 2004, on Stock Picks Bob's Advice when it was trading at $34.69. WOOF had a 2:1 stock split in August, 2004, making my effective pick price actually $17.35.
Anyhow, seeing an old favorite of mine, a stock that I would say is part of my vocabulary of stocks, I went ahead and purchased 180 shares at a price of $39.15.
I shall try and do an updated write-up on this stock later today :).
