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 August 5, 2011

Markets continue to be fickle.

Before taking a look at today's US stock of the Day, take a peak at this article.

Here's where the portfolio stands...

August 2nd, I purchased EGO @ $17.75.   It triggered my stop loss to $18.03 for a 1.6% gain.

August 4th, I chose LULU @ $60.80 with a stop loss @ $60.20.  It did not trigger.

For August 5th, I'm choosing HLF @ $60.88 with a stop loss @ $60.27.


The Overall total return is 64.8% since my first purchase approximately 7 weeks ago.

So far... 8 winners... 2 even... and 8 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!
