Baidu BIDU, Google GOOG, Apple AAPL
My strategy is only for those who are strong enough to withstand occasional pain. I care not for the weak to follow me. I have no interest in getting all my picks right. I am more concern about getting an overall profit. As such, in trading Safety for High risk High reward, one gets big winners that overcome a few losses
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.
There is strength in acknowledging the past and especially in acknowledging the things learned from past experiences—but a winner needs to invest the majority of their energy in creating an optimal present and future.

9:19am Sold DDD.. Sometimes I time it wrong as was the case here. Very small loss, was worth the risk.

Our Cut on a number of Catching Fire stocks
AMZN. Amazing Amazon hits the 400 share price high watermark.
Where does Bezos take it to in 2014? Company extremely innovative with shipping and now with expanding grocery deliveries. Company charter is to keep it in growth mode. The huge internet retailer wants to gain even more share market at the expense of store front retailers.
AMZN stock ended 2012 at 259 per share. It's at 402 this weekend, more than an 50% increase. I expect AMZN's earnings report in Jan 2014 to be strong. I expect additional innovative announcements in 2014 with Amazon Prime. I'm not making a predication but will not be surprising or difficult to see AMZN at 600 sometime in 2014 if the market remains in decent bullish mode in 2014.
AMZN isn't a stock a fundamentalist would like. It doesn't make money but it's stock has gone up 650% in the last six years. This is a growth play.
Whenever a Telsa auto catches on fire, the driver safely gets out of the car and goes down and buys another telsa. When any other car catches on fire, the driver is buried six feet under!
Currently Telsa all-electric autos are on backorder even through they cost from 70k to 90k. CEO Elon Musk, a billionaire akin to the Iron Man character Tony Stark, is as much of a reason to have faith in this business as the Telsa product itself.
Telsa is currently building an infra-structure network across the USA where a Telsa auto owner can recharge their auto batteries for free. If, instead, in a hurry, can swap out the old batteries for a recharged set of batteries for about the price of a fossil fuel refill. The swap out takes quicker to do than refilling your fossil fuel car with fuel.
Telsa will start development of a lower price all-electric auto in 2014.
AAPL Apple. Apple's iphone deal with China Mobile has been finalized and the iphones will be sold by China Mobile and Apple starting Jan 17. China Mobile is the largest phone company in China and this is a huge market deal for AAPL.
oh yes...I forgot, iPAD is this holiday seasons' biggest seller.
Netflix keeps coming up and re-inventing itself. The one factual info we have is that NFLX is counting on Original Content to increase subscribership. NFLX appears to be pushing to hook up and be a set-up with Cable networks, a la web-based TV.
GOOG Google PCLN Priceline
Google is always working on new product development and it doesn't have too. It can foster growth with it's existing Search engine, APPS, and Android. GOOG also has google glass in the works along with Google fiber. On top of that, it has only a P/E of 29 and a future P/E of 20. I can see GOOG hitting 1500 and doing it before PCLN which will also get there.
Disney hit an all-time high Friday.
