    Default Interesting individual stocks

    This is a thread started to make note of interesting individual stocks. If you have a stock you've found that merits attention, please feel free to add it to this thread, and tell us what you know about the company, and/or why you've found it interesting.

    Note: All stocks submitted are only things noted by the poster, are not recommendations, and, as always, there is risk involved, including the potential risk that they could turn out to lose money. Never take investment tips off a publically available internet bulletin board, your Uncle Harry, or someone who lives in Nigeria and wants you to transfer your bank account numbers to him/her.


    Oh, yeh.
    Except in Nebraska.

    My contribution of the day-

    Take a look at CRDN. Ceradyne Corp is a maker of ceramic body armor plates. And they work pretty darn good.

    What is notable: What is interesting is that Ceradyne has expanded into other ceramic markets. Vehicle armor is the latest, but they also purchased their supplier of boron powder for making ceramics last year. And that has increased their bottom line. As has a recent purchase of a manufacturer of boron-lined aluminum containers for storing nuclear waste. Bottom line is that the company continues to grow at a fast rate, and margins are good.

    Why consider investing here: Future is bright for continued armor growth, and continued non-military diversification.

    In hindsight, excellent analysis. $57.50 at time of original post, $74 at close today. Hope you are still raking it in. I think this is one of those companies that is misunderstood by the analysts.

    I'm starting to like SWHC more than ever. Reported a blowout quarter and better yet, improved forward guidance. Company is introducing a new line of shotguns and rifles that should positively impact sales forward. 25% growth next 5 years, featured positively in Barrons last month, PEG under 1. Blasted past it's pivot price of around $15.50 on high volume. There's a short squeeze in progress and should be ending soon, then it's time to get long.

    BAC is getting support after dropping 2% off the subprime fears day before earnings. Might be worth buying.

    BAC as a LOOONNNGGG term hold, yes I'd buy it for the 4.5% Divvy. Right now I don't see much upside in any financial companies. I'd wait a while before heading into any bank stocks. Even if there isn't any further fallout from the subslime mess, fear is going to continue to crush these stocks. Buy into fear, I like that.

    Support at 48 for BAC.

    STZ may finally close above 25.50 today. I'll be watching it today. A big move on today's earnings could get it running again.

    AEO may be making a double bottom. Undervalued according to some analysts. May be positioned to move big in the months ahead with Christmas. I took a position in my 'Mock Trading Account' today at $22.55. Maybe I'll jump on the wagon in the real account also.

    A good lesson on why not to trade after hours was given tonight in AEO. Moved up about 10% at 18:44 on about 1,000 shares of volume. Must've been a Cramer lightning round pick. Somebody made a quick buck.

    Got trashed in my SPAR this week. Blew earnings and dropped a bunch. It will be back later, but this week I got hosed.

    Jumped into FXI today for the ride. China EFT. Hope it still carries on- I need to make up my losses.
