Take SIMO Profit for Same General Reason as AAPL

So many stock prices were so beaten down, in the short-term there was nowhere left to go but up. That’s what bounce buying is I guess. SIMO was added around about the Christmas Eve masscre, when I did a chunk of my bounce buying. I’ll take the 16% given a modest beat of expectations and… As we have noted in NFTRH, Silicon Motion actually benefits … Continue reading Take SIMO Profit for Same General Reason as AAPL

Gimme SIMO dat Volatility!

Man, they don’t make it easy. Per yesterday’s real-time NFTRH Trade Log: Buy SIMO on pullback toward SMA 50. Reason being said pullback within a daily uptrend, potential for Ascending Triangle breakout and especially, soft demand for NAND Flash (may discuss more in NFTRH 511, as a low priority segment).

NFTRH has been talking about a ‘trade the swings’ mentality on the US stock market since probably last September or so.  The swings have been routine, if very pronounced.  So I am not an investor in the US stock market, although certain items have been traded personally and highlighted as NFTRH+ setups along the way.  These are items with good technical setups. A couple of … Continue reading NFTRH+; SIMO & GILD

A Cup of SIMO

I am not going to pretend to be a great trader.  Sometimes I do very well and other times, not so much.  Then are times like with Silicon Motion, a stock I have had several good trades on, where most recently I did well in identifying a pattern (as an NFTRH+ highlight in NFTRH 334) and then sold wrong.  I took a modest profit due … Continue reading A Cup of SIMO
