|4/13/09||Bookkeeping: Closing ITT Educational (ESI) (Fund my Mutual Fund)|
I am not sure what to make of the recent performance in adult education stocks if you are a proponent of "efficient market theory" (which I am not). A few months ago I said this sector would end in flames as it became over hyped but the charts continued to support these stocks... as I wrote in the weekend summary we had pockets of strength: drugs, adult education, supermarkets - a few sectors... during the big downdraft. Now these groups have been abandoned as people move into riskier...

I am employing the same strategy I did for ITT Educational (ESI) [Jan 22: Bookkeeping: Short ITT Educational] with Netflix (NFLX); in that case a stock gapped strongly after earnings, created a "gap" in the chart and came back to fill it. If I could keep track of so many positions I'd actually want to go long at the gap... these chart set ups are perfect for that (once the gap is filled, go long young man!) as ESI has flown higher since it filled the gap. The day we covered was the red...
