11/7/13Cree, Inc., Lam Research Corporation, Facebook, Twitter, Penn National Gaming. (Trading with the Average Jay)

Trading day so far. 1. Short trade in Cree, Inc. ( CREE ). Short on break of whole number $53.00. Profit target hit with half and I trailed the second half. Exit with a profitable trade. Profitable trade. 2. Short trade in Lam Research Corporation ( LRCX ). Trade open close to a possible break of prior low. The SPY turned higher I think due to Twitter open, and I closed at small loss . She did turn and go on to hit my profit target. You can't win them all. I guess I won...

3/7/13This Stock Surged 125% — But Look for a Pullback (Jutia Group)

If you want to be a thorough investor, then it's absolutely crucial to keep track of once-loved growth stocks that have fallen out of favor.

3/5/13CREE (Samurai Trader)

CREE had a breakaway gap in January on earnings, and I was watching it for an entry point, which it didn't give for over a month. By the time it pulled back, I was no longer watching it, and missed the pullback entirely. It increase guidance for this quarter today, and gapped up huge again. I think the lesson here might be that breakaway gaps should be bought right away:even if you bought this at the top on the gap up day, you still had a substantial gaain coming into today, and a humongous...

1/23/13CREE (Samurai Trader)

CREE was the relative volume winner among today's breakouts (not counting GOOG, which did not hit a new high). This one began to establish a new trading range with the gap up in October, sey that range fairly predictably, then broke out on earnings today. I'm not sure how O'Neil would feel about that drop earlier this month: while it held support, it does severely damage the price relative line. Today's move and volume probably makes that a moot point, though.

2/14/12Shares of This Industry Pioneer Still Have GREAT Upside (Jutia Group)
