I do have three interesting tables/charts to share.
Interesting Table/Chart 1
This shows how the 47 stocks in my MFI index have fared for the year and this week (note how well QCOR and GTLS have done):

Interesting Table/Chart #3
Here is the same chart for just the year 2010. Note I have added my actual portfolio on the chart as well. It is quite volatile... obviously too many stocks in the high risk category!
I did sell my TTT today. I had owned them over a year and have had a very nice gain. I have started to worry that the Bush tax cuts will not be extended, so it made sense to take my tax hit in the 2010 year at a long term rate of 15%. Still like the stock. So I am officially 7% in cash.
Not sure what to buy right now, I am leaning towards re-buying IDCC, especially if they become a dividend payer. Finally, I did buy STD today at 9.64 (obviously not as part of my MFI portfolio as I felt their 20% sell-off of late was over done and they were on my long term watch list as I am building up a dividend portfolio for retirement. (note I also have SLF, BNS, DD, VR, PHI, AZN, TOT, SDRL, CVX, SCCO, PG and PVD on my watch list while owning USB, STD, LNC, CSQ, RNR-PC, ENH-PA, OIBAX, O, WBK, SLRC and XOM along with my MFI divvy stocks).
Finally, speaking of dividends, I did get good news from KSW today as they announced an unexpected dividend (KSW, Inc. Declares Cash Dividend). So they will have paid a 10 cent dividend in June and now this 7 cent dividend in December, which is 17 cents or about 5%... which is unusual for a micro-cap stock. I still think they'll make me some money... some day.
