 MOCKINGJAY report starts today....

My Catching Fire public portfolio beat  the best hedge funds of 2014 !
Now see what my new MOCKINGJAY will do !

Reality is that there are plenty of people in  'wallstreet'  willing to rob you blind as long as you fail to understand the mechanisms by which they rob you. Legislators won't protect you. Regulators won't protect you. You must take action to protect yourself. MOCKINGJAY WILL HELP YOU IN 2015

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. 

A winner is willing to take calculated risks. This is a different thing entirely than jumping headlong into foolish risks. But with mental strength, an individual can weigh the risks and benefits thoroughly, and will fully assess the potential downsides and even the worst-case scenarios before they take action

The Daily Log

Dec 31

The MOCKINGJAY portfolio will start fresh and anew showing only active stocks in 2015 and only those closed in 2015. Anything prior will no longer be shown. MOCKINGJAY will show my blog recommendations and their results.

MockingJay Report for Dec 30,2014
CERN (Cerner)
You can be certain with Cerner !
Since the dark days of 2008, CERN has gained at a 37% average clip per year. For SIX strainght years CERN has gained in share price value. MockingJay will purchase CERN  the first trading day of 2015 where you can watch it grow during the year in our MOCKINGJAY public portfolio.

2009 - Gained for year........ 114%
2010 -                                   14,91
2011 -                                   29.30
2012 -  soared at a gain of   26.55
2013 - Surged upwards        49.82%
2014 - pale in comparison   18.59%

The winners kept coming. No reason to follow major hedge funds with their top heavy energy holdings getting plastered!

It appears my old site, people and picks is no longer operating. This site will be up all in 2015.

Dec 26 leftover
Just like clock work, as I've stated many times, buy QQQ in late summer and sell before the end of the year. Each year since 2008 I have done so and each year I have made a profit. Today I sold my QQQ shares and reap a net gain of over $1,750.0 !

The closed items on Catching Fire will no longer appear on the new MOCKINGJAY catching fire combined portfolio. I will move the active stocks to the MOCKINGJAY portfolio.

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.


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.

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 !

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 !

Regarding the Catching Fire portfolio. My real account in part mimics most but not all  of the same stocks at different buying prices and different quantities.

This site isn't all about the stock market. However, with the daily updating of the stock market, it took most of my time. I am still going to discuss  the stock market but also  going to relate more to other parts of this site - such as the paintings, my hobbies such as estate sale treasure hunting, movies, autos, etc.
I have developed a good following if the Blogger statistics I get are correct. It will be interesting to see how they change in the coming months.

MOCKINGJAY  portfolio is next

Catching Fire started during thanksgiving week, Nov 2013
One year later, on Dec 4th, 2014 I took the active Catching Fire stocks and added them to the new combined MOCKINGJAY-Catching Fire portfolio. Closed out gains for Catching Fire was 17,155 plus open items  gains of over $19,000 as of 12/3/2014
