Extended Hours. The Market is Your Oyster.

MAY 14, 2019. The surface is, well, just the beginning. Much of the story lies below and beyond. Why? Trading never sleeps. Life’s for living and the market’s for winning. Yesterday’s trade war turbulence made that both more difficult, and easier.  The value of existing positions was dragged down, while better prices were created.  We intend to buy more of what we already own, thus reducing our cost basis.  But not yet.
The volatility picture has two additional pieces.  The regular trading session is the sun-bubbly party. Extended hours is the exclusive memory-making after party. Many will tell you to remain top-side, in bounds. Most do, rightly so. Every explorer is warned. Only the few move past those entreaties. They’re the ones with tales to tell.
The pre-market and after hours sessions are known as “The Wild West.” True. Barrel-head bargains are cut in mere minutes while butt-fugly knives routinely fall from a darkened sky.
Collectively these flickering hours are called “extended,” and oodles of the good stuff resides there. We go often now, and so might you. We have two tales, in HD detail–and close up gruesome. Yet we go, to get that good stuff. Plan and know, before you go. Otherwise, you’re just working for the man. Continue reading Extended Hours. The Market is Your Oyster.

Standing Tough. SJ Portfolio Now

FEBRUARY 3, 2019. Change often comes in a flash. Ask the man who brings pizza to our office. He sports shorts everyday. He came from southern California where snow is unknown and assures us “its’ all good.” That’s when we pay him 50% above pie price and discuss stock picks.
He’s one of the few and only the few who wear shorts year round. Shorts in the snow may be an individual thing, but for sure only the rare individuals own individual stocks when things get tough. That’s like shorts-wearing while strolling the snow around the building ledge. And only the few out of the last group make it pay.
STOCKjAW works around the clock to make it pay. We’re lucky that way and share it all with you joyously. It’s not a secret to sell, as far as we’re concerned. It’s spreading the joy. Stand tough now and you’ll get 50% above pie price. Our picks now. Continue reading Standing Tough. SJ Portfolio Now

ABIOMED. A Company With Heart. Want One?

AUGUST 6, 2018. No one out-performs Amazon.
Or do they? ABIOMED is a company with heart. They make them–temporary percutaneous mechanical circulatory support devices. If you’re one of the many people with any of a variety of cardiac issues, this company may just help you heal. That’s whet CEO and President Michael Monogue will tell you.
Abiomed’s blood pumps create blood flow when the heart needs assistance. It’s ABMD’s time as well.
Born in 1997 this Danvers Mass-based company originally sought the artificial heart, a pedigree continuing to provide both direction and inspiration.
