Hello Friends! We are now looking at stocks about nine weeks out...at this point from the week of December 1, 2003. As regular readers of this BLOG may know, I like to use the weekend to post updates on past performances of selection. This is my way of determining whether anything I do here really makes sense. I have to look and share with you the results of the selections. I hope you find this informative!
During the week of December 1, 2003, I selected five stocks for this website: Thomas Nelson (TNM) was selected on 12/2/03 at $19.91, Kensey Nash (KNSY) was posted on 12/3/03 at $22.20, Pogo Producing (PPP) was selected on 12/4/03 at $46.66, ResMed (RMD) was picked on 12/5/03 at $41.76, and finally, Medical Action Industries (MDCI) was selected on 12/5/03 at $17.25.
Thomas Nelson was posted on "Stock Picks Bobs Advice" on 12/2/03 at a price of $19.91. TNM closed at $25.56 on 2/6/04 for a gain of $5.65 or 28.4%. I have never had shares of this stock.
Kensey Nash was selected for "Bobs Advice" at a price of $22.20. KNSY closed on 2/6/04 at $26.56 for a gain of $4.36 or 19.6%. I have shares of this stock in my trading portfolio.
Pogo Producing was posted on Bobs Advice on 12/4/03 at a price of $46.66. This stock was purchased in my trading account and sold shortly thereafter with a small loss. PPP closed 2/6/04 at $40.64 for a loss of $(6.02) or (12.9)%.
The fourth stock listed is an interesting company that I have never had the opportunity of owning shares: ResMed. RMD was picked for Bobs Advice on 12/5/03 at $41.76. RMD closed on 2/6/04 at $47.80 for a gain of $6.04 or 14.5%.
The final stock selection of the week is another stock that I have never owned shares: Medical Action Industries (MDCI) which was posted on this website on 12/5/03 at a price of $17.25. MDCI closed today, 2/6/04 at $16.93 for a loss of $(.32) or (1.9)%.
Thus, these five stocks, during a period of only nine weeks, had an average performance of a gain of 9.54%. This was a nice group of stocks that performed well for us.
