My Catching Fire public portfolio beats the best hedge funds of 2014 !
Winning is grabbing momentum, profiting from it and then releasing it
A winner must be willing to embrace change and welcome challenge. The biggest “fear,” if there is one, is not of the unknown, but of becoming complacent and stagnant. An environment of change and even uncertainty can energize a mentally strong person and bring out their best.
MARKET STOCK BEHAVIOR IS NOT LEARNED FROM LOGIC AND REASONING BUT FROM REWARD AND PUNISHMENT
Catching FIRE portfolio
One year ago, I decided to make a stock portfolio public allowing one to see all my trades in the portfolio 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All trades, all closed trades for the year are available for viewing.
I set some very lofty goals. With an exposure risk that averages at any given time, $115,000 in the portfolio, I wanted to make a net profit gain of $40,000 which relates to a 35% gain for the year. THIS HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED. This is better than 99% of all professional hedge and institutional funds. I beat the pro fund managers in 2014 !
My plan was to make this portfolio available for one year. However, I currently have 10 active stocks in the portfolio. I now plan to allow it to be available for public viewing a little bit longer.
Today, I have purchased stocks in jet blue JBLU and Southwest air LUV.
A major change in the price of OIL. OPEC has thrown in the towel on setting prices and now will allow the market to determine price as OPEC fights off against USA shale oil production. The big loser is RUSSIA, which will likely slid into a recession and likely go bankrupt.
Bought the 'cisco kid' CSCO today, sold for profit TSEM.
NOV 24 - 2015 leftovers
MOCKINGJAY - avoid the lies from so-called government reports, analysts reports, investment banking, the wallstreet media, and paid bloggers... their purpose by the powers behind them is to ** ROB YOU BLIND ** . MOCKINGJAY will attempt to see through all that and find the best means to make oodles and oodles of money !
Nov 17 - Monday leftovers
.... over 76% of major funds has NOT beat the S&P 500 index this year. Hence, these funds will attempt to make gains the rest of the year by capitulating and buying this year's winners. In other words, buy high and sell higher.
MOCKINGJAY portfolio...coming soon "For those who want to make a lot of money"
MOCKINGJAY - '...with risk comes reward '
The "Catching Fire" stock portfolio that has been on displayed publicly daily on this site since Nov 2013 will end it's public display here either at the end of the month or year-end. It has been highly successful. If it was part of a hedge fund, it would be among the top hedge funds in the country as the current net gain in the 30-35% range.
Don't dismay, I am replacing it with a brand new, more aggressive, highly speculative stock portfolio which will be displayed here and will be called MOCKINGJAY ! The purpose of MOCKINGJAY WILL BE TO SHOW AN ANNUAL NET GAIN GREATER THAN MY CURRENT 'CATCHING FIRE' PORTFOLIO. Our purpose is to generate greater profit than 35%. More on this later.
If you think I'm hot, wait until you see the MOCKINGJAY portfolio !
