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.

US Stock of the Day for July 21, 2011

Welcome back to US Stock of the Day

Interesting week... with world news driving markets one day and earnings trumping global news the next.

FOSL - purchase on June 27 @ $114.11 sitting today @ $133.03, a 16.6% gain.  I'm keeping my stop loss @ $125.95.

ISRG - purchase on July 18 @ $362.94 closing today @ $397.47, a 9.5% gain.  I'm raising my stop loss to $384.78.

SBUX - purchase on July 19 @ $40.03 with a stop loss @ $39.91.  This triggered on July 20th for a 0.3% loss.

July 20th, I chose DECK @ $95.78 with a stop loss @ $94.82.  It triggered both the purchase and sale the same day for a 1% loss.

For July 21st, I'm choosing SH @ $40.96 with a stop loss @ $40.55.  I'm anticipating some further downward action this week with more volatile earnings (some considerably up, some considerably down).


The Overall total return is 69.4 since my first purchase approximately 5 weeks ago.

So far... 7 winners... 2 even... and 6 losers (at -1% each, and one at 0.3%) for a great overall profit.

I would encourage you, especially if you're looking for a more stable, weekly approach to trading, to look at  

See you tomorrow!
