As 2009 winds up, it might help to look back on ideas and picks.I had about 4 groups of watch-list ideas.Grupo OriginaleKSW MPEL CWTR STAR NOEC SMMX ENPT EVC LWAY DEP HOLI ALY MTRX ASYSI commented in early June--Through early May, 7 of those ideas doubled or tripled while on the watchlist (I said 8 then after double counting EVC) - MPEL CWTR NOEC EVC ENPT ALY HOLI at some point in thatOkay, EVC, NOEC, ENPT, ALY were below $1/shr, but that was extreme value :)Then again, ALY has managed doubles and triples over $1.To be fair, some joined the double/triple club in the extreme fear conditions of late Feb/early Mar - MPEL CWTR, NOEC ALY (SMMX) .My then-existing trading account portfolio, if purchased in that extreme fear period, also had ideas that managed doubles, triples or quadruples - MCGC, HTE, NM, PVX, SFL, AAV. I did hold onto some NM, PVX, SFL in the trading, or other accounts, to get some benefit of the bounce. MPEL CWTR did manage doubles by themselves Jan - SepSTAR joined them as a near triple after the Cisco buy-out & late bloomer, ASYS, tripled by year-end. The last idea is one I did invest in for a nice gain.In summary, ideas that doubled or tripled without the fear factorMPEL CWTR EVC ENPT ALY HOLI ASYS STARHohum is no slouch when it comes to picking ideas for a watchlist :)Hohum is not so good when it comes to investing in them :(But investing is a continual process, so Hohum can potentially correct this :)
