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 October 26, 2011

Capital Preservation, Minimize Losses, Maximize Returns

These are the principles that guide this investment strategy. Today was a great example of how to put profits in you pockets... for more information on the Evening Investor Strategy and a guaranteed offer that you can try risk free, check out the 5 for 5 Guarantee where I'll chose 5 stocks, trade them for 2 months, with a Guaranteed 5% cumulative return.

Let's take a look at how the day shaped up...

October 21st, I chose LULU @ $51.36.  I set my stop loss @ $52.39 and it triggered for a 2% profit.

October 24th, I chose BIDU @ $127.29.  I set my stop loss @ $129.45 and it triggered for a 1.7% profit.

October 25th, I chose AZO @ $332.89.  It triggered and closed down @ $327.93, a 1.5% loss.  I'm setting my stop loss @ $326.23 for a total risk of 2%.

October 26th, I'm choosing BIDU @ $133.18.


The Overall total return is 69.1% since my first purchase in June.

So far... 18 winners... 5 even... and 20 losers (at approx. -1% each, and one at 0.3%) for a great overall profit.
