    Jeez, thanks for pointing that out. I know TSLA went up like a 2000 IPO, but look at it drop. I guess the ones selling are the ones who got free shares from the IPO party and were too stupid to unload at the open on day 1.

    GFRE - Gulf Resources Inc

    Good growth, good net profit, good returns. The company has exclusive rights to bromine fields in China, bromine being the majority of their revenue. Considering that the global markets as a whole are about to take a dive, I may hold out on this stock before I buy low for a potentially long position. Their quarterly is coming out soon and you bet I'll be keeping a close eye on them.

    Anyone interested in Annaly Capital Management (NLY)? REIT with a high dividend rate at least to date. Lives on the interest spread. current quarter not doing so well earnings wise due to early Mortgage payoffs by Fannie and Freddie. Should be a temporary phenomenon as long as interest rates are low. As always invest at your own risk and do your own research.

    Scout, I have been in and out of AGNC in that MREIT space. Right now I am out. I think they could announce another equity offering and they always do it mid quarter for a discount to what the stock is trading at. I have not ever been invested in NLY, but it is an interesting sector. With stable rates for the foreseeable future, these high payouts seem manageable by the companies.

    I just noticed that McDonalds Corporation (MCD) has been moving up nicely ever since October 2009. Makes sense. These days "going out to dinner" means grabbing a cheeseburger happy meal.

    So how late to the party am I on MCD? Comments?

    Wow, nice chart! I'm probably not telling you anything you don't already know, but for anyone else listening...

    If you are a technical analyst, you might just wait for the chart to consolidate, although the recent breakout is pretty fresh. There is good support between 71.5 and 72, 70, 65, and 61.

    If you are into the fundamentals you may want to compare the historical price to earnings ratios with the current P/E to let you know if it is still a bargain or not.

    Merlin Rothfeld is the host of Power Trading Radio. At the end of each broadcast he has the "power pick of the day" which he outlines on his blog.

    On 8-13 the PowerPick was MFE. He probably just got lucky but look what happened on 8-19. His stop was at $29.45.

    I have been mainly trading ETFs as you can mirror your TSP account for the most part, but you can get more aggressive (more moves, more choices, etc.) Check out www.etftalk.com. It's quiet over there but there a lot of info posted on the forum. Good luck!

    Start with a company that has a product you are familiar with and like - that's the easiest way to get started. Otherwise, you can throw a dart at a financial page - that's called random walk theory. I usually let my financial adviser, Mindylou, pick my stocks.
