US Stock of the Day - Understanding How it Works

US Stock of the Day is for traders who are looking for a US Stock to trade each day. I base my picks on US Stocks I follow on the Nasdaq, Dow, S&P and other indices such as the Russell 1000, etc., watching for a swing in the momentum upward. I keep a tight stop loss on all trades to minimize my risk... and allow the great stock trades to continue rising. These are not recommendations... merely entertainment. Please see the warning at the bottom of this page.

Let's take a look at what we hold...

GMCR - purchase on June 14 @ $76.23 sitting today @ $89.76, a 17.8% gain.   The first 1/2 stop triggered @ $93.02, a 22% gain while holding the other 1/2 with a stop loss @ $87.67.

VMED - short on July 11 @ $28.62.  It sits @ 27.66, a 3.5% gain.  I'm adjusting my stop loss to $28.21.

July 12th, I chose CMG @ $328.46 with a stop loss @ $325.18.  It did not trigger.

For July 13th, I'm keeping my CMG order, but with a new price @ $325.50 with a stop loss @ $322.25.


The Overall total return is 60.4% since my first purchase approximately one month ago.
