MESA-Sabrient Trading Alerts (RS2) is the collaboration of two bona fide rocket scientists (we call it rocket science squared). It combines a technical overlay with Sabrient’s fundamentally strong stocks. The technical overlay was developed by John Ehlers, a retired scientist from the defense industry — the watch list, by David Brown, a former NASA scientist who was part of the lunar landing team.
John saw the outstanding buy-and-hold performance of SabrientÂ’s fundamentally ranked equities (the source of the Watch List) and thought he could improve upon their buy-and-hold performance with his technical timing system . . . and he did!
In a 3-month backtest (September – December 2009) and a 5-month (January – May) forward test, John had an average return of $249.84 or 2.50% per position. Out of 89 trades, 67% were winners.

Heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who
Heard it from another you been messin’ around
They’re talkin’ about you and it’s bringin’ me down
But I know the neighborhood
And talk is cheap when the story is good
And the tales grow taller on down the line
But I’m telling you, babe, that I don’t think it’s true, babe
And even if it is keep this in mind
That was fast. We’re going to smile and take it on the run, for another 9% in 3 days on our HUSA short.
BUY TO COVER HUSA short at the market, Thursday, September 16, 2010.
And to quote the Terminator “I’ll be back.”

Wireless Ronin Common Stock to Move to OTCQB; NASDAQ Delisting Based on Insufficient Shareholders' Equity

Wireless Ronin Technologies (NASDAQ: RNIN), a leading marketing technologies provider, announced today that it has been notified by the NASDAQ Stock Market (NASDAQ) that trading in the Company's securities will be suspended on NASDAQ effective with the open of trading on May 31, 2013. On that same date, the Company's common stock will become eligible to trade on the OTCQB, which is an electronic trading platform of the OTC Markets Group. The Company's trading symbol will remain RNIN. The Company does not intend to appeal NASDAQ's determination since it believes its efforts are better directed towards the Company's core business operations.

Like so many debacles in the EU, it started with the unelected European Commission. It’s immune to voters, but not to lobbyists and corporations. Under the guise of “consumer protection” or “food safety” or some other harmless moniker, it generates zany laws that tend to benefit large corporations. But last week, it went too far, even for Europeans – not that they don’t already have enough crises on their hands. It passed a law that banned restaurants from se...

Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things."

While the S&P 500 has had quite a year already the Nikkei has been the story of the globe as they are performing acts of central banking that even put the U.S. Fed to shame. And Japan's central bank can buy ETFs and REITs directly per their charter versus the U.S. bank. Combined with a yen in free fall it's been a heck of a move for the Nikkei since last November. I noted last week we were seeing extremely rare weekly and monthly type overbought readings on bo...

The market went through some gyrations on Wednesday in reaction to Fed Chairman Bernanke’s testimony before the Joint Economic Committee. He first defended continued quant easing by warning, “A premature tightening of monetary policy could lead interest rates to rise temporarily but also would carry a substantial risk of slowing or ending the economic recovery.” Stocks dutifully rallied and all major indexes hit new intraday highs.
But alas, consensus is apparently not a given over the longer term. The minutes hinted that a tapering off could start sooner, “A number of participants expressed willingness to adjust the flow of purchases downward as early as the June meeting if the economic information received by that time showed evidence of sufficiently strong and sustained growth.” So …...

I am going to share with you how I manage my IRA and the power of reducing your cost basis. My goal each year is a 20% return in my IRA. Sometimes I make it and sometimes I don't, but I believe that all of my success is due to reducing my cost basis. To illustrate the power of reducing your cost basis here are some trades we did last year. These trades are taken from an educational portfolio we ran in a paper-trading account for a little more than a year.

Well, well, well....it is good to know that there are others in the scientific arena who believed that YMI Bioscience's data (cough - Gilead) is a better drug than Incyte's Jakafi. Now, the definitive data are still unknown, but there was enough evidence from a Phase 2 trial to take a small risk for a huge reward. So, let's forget about Apple (AAPL), and do nothing but biotechs from now until Congress passes universal health care coverage for prescriptions....and drive the prices down so that research and development is no longer feasible to conduct in the US. Even Seattle Genetics (SGEN) has been on a tear as of late...
