Buy, Sell, or Hold...
Wednesday, July 26, 2006

One of the toughest parts when it comes to TRADING, I say this because trading and investing are two separate actions, is when to buy, hold, or sell. Another tough part is deciding what is a TRADE and not an INVESTMENT. Well we have been watching as the speculative bubble in the small resource stocks seems to have erupted, leaving many of our positions underwater for the moment (some further beneath than others). Throughout this time we have tried to develop a strategy for once the tide turns by following many of the small resource stocks including those which we have no opinion on. We have also added (in our personal portfolio, which happens to be real money for those wondering) to what we view as investments at this time, including probably the hardest hit of them all CanWest Petroleum (CWPC). We increased our holdings by 5% at a recent price of $4.26 believing that this was one of those opportunites to take advantage of a sale on Wall Street.

Trading is part strategy, part timing, and part art. Luck can be involved in it, but we do not recommend trying your LUCK at trading. This is a strategy that will turn out costing you money in an overwhelming majority of the time. With that out of our way let us state the Trading opportunity that we currently see within the small cap uranium sector. The stock is Alberta Star, ticker symbol ASXSF, which lays down our target. We believe that as the stock is anywhere around $1.20 it is a buy, especially anytime after the 20th of each month. We say this because each time we try to get back into this stock at an attractive price, it shoots out of a logic buying area due to The Dines Letter and its readers buying on his recommendations. We attribute this to the nearly 50% gain experienced over the past week in its stock, and regret that we did not pull the trigger on this trade as we had done on previous occasions.

We believe that owning and holding positions in these promising energy companies of the future allows for us to reap huge rewards in the future, but at the same time we realize that there is money to be made today when the opportunity arises. These are the type of opportunities we all need to open our eyes to in order to take advantage of the lemmings who undoubtedly will come back into the market once they have had ample time to lick their wounds and see the upward movement.
