Re: “I'm going to start calling MDP sell recs 'lemming alerts'. As soon as the alert hit my mailbox the chart fell off a cliff. So much for selling using a limit order.

Here is a tune to hum the next time you see a sell request:

Historically, if someone built a portfolio based upon MDP’s sell recs, and purchased either at or below the team’s sale price, then they’d be significantly outperforming the MDP portfolio... Unfortunately the mad rush to get in or out often works against those who are in a hurry. I suspect that some of the best investors here have learned the art of patience and wait for their price targets... Hopefully luvtosew’s decision to wait until June works out well for him/her.

Take care,
