Yes this sleepy little (with the emphasis on little) company exploded upwards by 20% today with an upbeat earnings report. When I looked over lunch, ISNS was the 4th best stock (Friday's Small-Cap Winners & Losers ) on the Naz (just behind another MFI stock, VRGY which I lamented about last night).
Then let us not forget little old PGI. I kind of dismissed their earnings last night as I had just scanned the headlines (never a good practice), which just said they missed their target and re-affirmed for 2007. I didn’t think that sounded good, but Yee-Ha! PGI is up about 8% today (Premiere Global Surges on 4Q, Upgrade ), the 4th best stock on the big board (when I looked). I just read their release, to be honest I am not sure what was in there to cause the stock to spike 8%. If I wasn’t in MFI, I’d be thinking this was a selling opportunity.
PONR (yes, the Point Of No Return stock) went up about 6% today. Made an especially strong move the last hour… hmmm, someone must be buying it as volume is 2x normal.
So speaking of my “Rear View Mirror” from yesterday, today’s MFI burst has us looking in the rear view mirror at the Russell 3000. I now have about a 3% lead on them and dollar-wise am at my highest spread over them ever. Yee-Ha!
Yes it was a happy day. I think Mr Market was recognizing that I have now been at this for exactly one year. Tomorrow I shall pontificate about what I have learned. Be sure to check over the weekend for my pontification. Now for something completely different (I think that was from Bullwinkle).
Here is my weekly graph. It is very sweet as my magenta line has zoomed up!
Now for my stock listing. Note that HW is no longer on the list and shows up in the "sold" numbers. I plan on adding it back on Monday, but with more shares. I have not actually sold HW, this is just the way I have decided to keep score, so stocks don't stay on the list more than a year, they drop to "sold" at a year.
