Really haven't been too busy in this BLOG last couple of days. But sure have been busy at work! It is the weekend and we have a few hours to catch up with things...including this site! This is a great time to look back and see how we have been doing....have out picks been working out? Does what I am posting here make sense? The best test is the performance of these issues AFTER they are posted!
Our last look-back was for the week of May 26th...posted about 2 weeks ago...let's look at the following week when I was quite busy making picks...the week of June 2, 2003...about 5 weeks ago.

Also on 6/2 we picked ACS, Affiliated Computer Services. This one has NOT performed well, and in fact was SOLD out of my trading portfolio on weakness. (I do not bat 100%!). We picked ACS on 6/2 at $49.18. Currently ACS is trading at $44.05, or a loss of $5.13 or (10.4%).
