Summary of picks from yesterday

Posted by Kamil on May 19, 2009

Yesterday’s picks turned out to be right on. Although with pathetic moves, AMD gained its way up. It has been trying to break its new resistance at $4.50 majority of the day. Unfortunately, I followed my plan and sold it in the morning to break even (including commission) because I did not have any more patience from watching it a day before. If I would have kept it for the day and trust my own gut, I could have made easy $0.2501 per share (or 6%). I hope some of you had more patience and easily profited on AMD. The lesson to be learned from this is that I’m very impatient trader.

AIB is hanging strong. Even though I intended to keep it for a longer period of time, I sold it with $0.26 per share profit (or 9%) because I needed net liquidity for other trades I did today. With that said, AIB is still a keeper and I will very likely get back into this stock some time this or next week.

Company Buy Date Sell Date Buy Price Sell Price Gain/Loss
AMD 5/18/09 5/19/09 $4.1399 $4.15
AIB 5/18/09 5/19/09 $2.89 $3.15 9%

Although single digit, 9% profit overnight is always nice.

Let me know what you think about those two picks in the comment box.
