If you take a look at the archives to the right you will see that the months of at least half a dozen posts came to a halt in June 2010 when I set off for a nearly 2 month vacation in which time I tried my best to cut away from the World Wide spider Web.

Upon returning, life took its toll and between juggling this, another part time gig, an internship, school and more I was spending over 14 hours a day even most weekends trying to run it all but eventually it was either my health or a few of my favorite things (such as investing and this blog) and thus began the almost dry run of no investing and no blogging (well almost none) from my return late August 2010 until now June 2011 where I have taken a part time gig into a full time Business and have eliminated the fluff.

I have made several attempts at coming back committed to the blog in August then September and continuing almost one post or so a month until it just wasn’t worth making half-baked posts.

Corporate America is behind me for the time being and even though it was fun, having more time to focus on what makes me happy is a much better trade-off. I do lecture a Special topics class on investing at my University and therefore I have decided to create a “investing school” section in the blog which I will update with useful info for beginners. I know the page is blank right now but a few articles are written which I will be releasing slowly every few days in case i fall into a dry spell again.

To those that are still subscribed via RSS, come from referral sources or even have the site bookmarked and stop by I would like to say THANK you for hanging around while Investingfreak took time to “restructure”.  The website has also been redesigned with the Green Money colors and with the simplicity in mind.

Current Picks Updated 3-28-2010

The Current Picks page has been updated. Have a look by clicking Current Picks here or up on the top of the page.
Below I will only mention the new signals that have occurred this week.

IYR   downgraded to SELL on Mar 26th at $50.10     (BUY Feb 16 at $44.40)
AAPL upgraded to BUY on Mar 22nd at $224.75   (SELL Mar 19 at $222.30)

Not much action this week but many equities are giving a sign of rolling over (dont be surprised if you see over a dozen stock upgrades and downgrades one weekend)
As for AAPL i think the sudden turnaround of signal seems to have been caused by unexpected demand for the iPad.

Disclaimer:
I am only giving the latest signal for the stock mentioned. Use at your own risk and make sure to take the date into consideration. If you have been trading for a while you should have realized that relying solely on the strategies of others (think Analyst Opinions) will lead to failure so please only take the signals I provide just as another indicator in making your informed BUY or SELL decision. Now go Make some MONEY!

Have a good weekend.

The Current Picks page has been updated. Have a look by clicking Current Picks here or up on the top of the page.
Below I will only mention the new signals that have occurred this week.

IWM   downgraded to SELL on Mar 19th at $67.41  (BUY Feb 11 at $60.58)
AAPL downgraded to SELL on Mar 19th at $222.30   (BUY Feb 25 at $202.00)
DIG   downgraded to SELL on Mar 19th at $33.98      (BUY Mar 1 at $33.09)
DUG  upgraded to BUY on Mar 19th at $12.40            (SELL Mar 1 at $12.80)
SMN  upgraded to BUY on Mar 19th at $7.37             (SELL Feb 9  at $9.26)

And Mitch, I tried to add MGI to the current picks list per your request on the comment box, but right now it’s been stuck in a range and gives more than one signal a week (one too many considering I only do weekly updates to the page) I will keep an eye on it once it breaks the range.
