$2,168 profit on WSTI. Short Stock by timothysykes.

Entry comments: Shorted this dead pump bounce via my high net worth broker, up nearly 100% off its lows, looks to be turning the corner heading down there on heavier volume today, expose after expose take a toll, classic #6 pattern from my http://tim.ly/ts7steps DVD, goal is to cover for 20-40% gains later today or this week. Exit comments: Covered remainder for decent profits, running to bigtime TV interview right now, will air later this week, don’t want any open positions just in case since WSTI is now 20%+ off its highs and today is just the first down day, tomorrow will likely be better bloodbath.

$3,132 profit on DGLY. Long Stock by timothysykes.

Entry comments: Small speculative long as it’s found support at $5ish the past few days, I’d love to see a rebound like USU just did when it had the same kind of chart/price action since this is down nearly 50% off its highs of $9 just a few days ago…small risk of 25 cents/share or so, upside target in the high 5s or even low 6s if it can uptrend and squeeze shorts ideally in a morning spike tomorrow…careful though since this company is hurting so I will sell into spikes and not hold long term. Exit comments: PERFECT breakout once it broke above $5.50, I’m flying and I just made $3k, you can do this from ANYWHERE!

$4,752 loss on WSTI. Short Stock by timothysykes.

Entry comments: Re-shorted on the dead pump bounce on the daily chart and now intraday chart too, AMAZING how it follows #6 from http://tim.ly/ts7steps to a T, goal is to cover in the 70s or 60s or even 50s later today or this week, today is just 1st down day. Exit comments: Not gap down or panic, gotta cut losses as it didn’t do what I wanted, possibly due to my high net worth broker saying only closing positions today; I know lots of shorts are there, video lesson coming.

Weekly Roundup July 7-11

Jul 16, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Profitly, Profitly Weekly  //  No Comments

Time for another weekly roundup! Our gurus and their students show no signs of slowing down.

First we’ll talk about Investors live, starting with a $2,036 profit on GTAT. He shorted 6,000 shares on the 8th at $17.11 and bought them back the same day at $16.78.

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.22.19 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.22.24 AM

Then we have a $2,057 profit on DAL. He shorted 6,000 shares of this stock on the 9th at $37.66 and bought them back later in the day at $37.32

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.22.35 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.22.41 AM

Finally we have a $1,136 loss on EVRY. He bought 12,552 shares on the 7th at $3.59 and sold them the same day at $3.50.

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.22.54 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.22.58 AM

Next let’s talk about Tim. First is a $2,675 loss on WATT. He bought 13,500 shares on the 10th at $13.80 and sold them the next day at $13.60. “Entry comments: Bought this contract winner that ran somewhat unexpectedly in a down market, tons of support in the 13.60s and 13.70s, my goal is to sell in the low to mid or even high 14s tomorrow if any analyst upgrade or articles come out. Exit comments: Going nowhere fast and I’m sitting here watching it, missing other plays, no thanks, taking small losses now, I was just wrong on this play, it happens, all you can do is try to manage the losses and keep them small.’

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.23.58 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.24.04 AM

But then we have a big $8,526 profit on DGLY. Tim shorted 20,000 shares on the 10th at $8.62 and bought them back later that day at $8.18. “Entry comments: Speculative short into this ridic spike, easy to borrow with my high net worth broker. Exit comments: Not dropping as fast as I want, cover for solid safe profits, scary but could spike again, potential re-short.”

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.24.34 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.24.39 AM

Lastly there is a $4,366 profit on CBMX. He bought 47,500 shares at $2.34 on the 9th and sold them the next day at $2.43. “Entry comments: Analyst upgrade yesterday, morning spike today testing 2.40 resistance, former Supernova, if it breaks out, it can go to the high 2s, low risk buying on nice intraday consolidation, went big since there was a big seller at 2.32 getting chipped away, might as well go big if you believe in it, be careful though, speculative, especially if it can’t break 2.40 resistance. Exit comments: Nice overnight Seeking Alpha story, but no premarket spiking, might spike later, but I’m not taking chances in this dangerous market where everything is getting crushed at the market open…is this finally the consolidation we’re in desperate need of Hopefully…if so that means a sizable market drop where speculative stocks like CBMX get crushed…no thanks, playing it safe in case today is Black Thursday which it very well may be…better safe than sorry after this multi-year bull market.”

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.24.57 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.25.02 AM

Next up is Superman. First is a big $21,089 profit on VJET. This was an options trade, so it’s a bit more complicated. “Bought Puts as this rallied with 3d sector but has horrible financials. SUPER TRADE as it went from 26 to 19 in a couple days and i made $21k !!!!”

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.25.32 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.25.36 AM

Next is a $5,226 profit on ANET. He bought 3,000 shares on the 8th at $65.47 and sold them later that day at $67.23. “Entry comments: TRADE – personal stop loss 65 area and personal target 67.5-68 plus if works…raided and down almost 7 points Exit comments: nice super trade.”

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.26.05 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 7.26.10 AM

Lastly we have a $9,309 loss on SKBI. He bought 11,400 shares on the 3rd at $7.68 and sold them on the 8th at $6.87. “Entry comments: TRADE/Chart personal stop loss 4ema area and personal target 8 plus if it works Exit comments: taking the loss here…..lost 4ema today could have sold some sooner in 7′s.”

Series: The Greatest Trades of All-Time Part Four

Jul 10, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Best Trades, Profitly  //  Comments Off

We started a new series on Profitly a couple of weeks ago covering some of the greatest trades of all time. Millions of trades are made every day, but most of them are not for the kinds of profits we are diving in to. They’re more likely to be a few hundred here, a few thousand there. It’s hard to compare to the two trades we are highlighting below, although some of the trades on Profitly are worth noting.

For instance, Tim made more than $70k on this trade ($70,982 profit EKSO), lx21 made $470k on this trade ($470,394 profit STXS), Superman made $419k here ($419,777 profit SPEX), Tim’s second millionaire student made $100k on this trade ($101,404 profit FNMA), his first millionaire student made $88k on this trade ($88,401 profit LSCG), and InvestorsLive made $80k on this trade ($80,728 profit RAYS).

But alas, it is really hard to top the trades detailed below. First we discussed Jesse Livermore’s $100 million profit when he shorted the 1929 stock market crash and second we discussed Paul Tudor Jones’ $100 million when he predicted Black Monday in 1987. Business Insider does a great job of finding the best trades. Then we covered Andy Krieger’s $300 million profit by shorting the Kiwi (New Zealand Dollar) in the late 80′s and then Jim Rogers’ prediction of the long term bull market in commodities. Then in part three we covered George Soros ‘short of the British pound netting him $1 billion and Stanley Druckenmiller’s bet on the German mark that made $1 billion.

Now in part four, we’ll start off by covering Jim Chanos’ short on Enron, which he did when everyone thought the company was in great shape. The first time Jim Chanos’ firm analyzed an Enron document was in 1999. By the end of 2000, after almost two years of investigation and analysis into Enron’s activities, Chanos knew that the company was lying about pretty much everything important and was headed for disaster.

So, around November 2000, just after Enron’s stock hit $90 and had a target price of $130 – $140, Chanos’ firm initiated a short position. It took more than a year for the stock to hit rock bottom—the company filed for bankruptcy in December 2001, but by then Chanos had made a bundle. Although we do not know the exact amount of the profit, this trade is impressive simply because he called it almost perfectly even though everyone else was going in the opposite direction.

Next we have Andrew Hall’s massive long bet on oil, which made enough to warrant a $100 million bonus (equivalent to roughly $128 million today). In 2003, when oil was trading at about $30 a barrel, Andrew Hall, who was working for Citigroup’s energy trading division Phibro at the time, was betting that oil would reach $100 within five years. So he bought a whole bunch of ‘long-dated oil futures’ that would only pay of if his hunch was right. And since his prediction seemed so far-fetched at the time, he got them cheap. It was a risky bet. If the price of oil hadn’t cleared $100 by 2008 (which it did) Hall would be out a bundle. But his hunch played out, and the Phibro division made more money that it would have had they just directly invested in oil ETFs. Citi was supposed to pay Hall $100 million for the trade, but they didn’t want to give him the full amount. The whole thing riled up so much controversy that Citi ended up selling Phibro.

As we pointed out in the previous posts, the Profitly gurus may not be making million dollar profits on single trades, but as you can see in the links above, they are making trades with profits equal to or even above the average person’s annual salary, meaning they are still a far cry from the average investor who puts money in their 401k and hopes to become a millionaire by the time they retire. Sure, you have years like 2013 where you would have done “ok” by investing simply in an S&P500 index fund, but most years are a far cry from the 30% return we saw then. This year for example the index is only up about 5% or so. Not so great if you ask me.

We still aren’t finished covering these amazing trades either! The series will continue with part five shortly, and you won’t believe how much the next two traders made.

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.20.54 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.20.59 AM

Now lets talk about InvestorsLive.

First off we have a $2,577 profit on DRL. He shorted 6,118 shares on the 3rd at $9.15 and bought them back later in the day at $8.72.

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.31.22 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.31.27 AM

Then we have a $1,842 profit on GPRO. He shorted 3,500 shares on the 3rd at $44.70 and bought them back later that day at $44.17.

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.31.59 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.32.04 AM

Then we have a $5,057 profit on GLUU. He shorted 30,000 shares at $5.05 on the 1st and bought them back that same day at $4.88.

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.32.25 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.32.28 AM

Then we have two losses to talk about. First is a $7,115 loss on GPRO. He shorted 5,000 shares at $38.59 on the 30th and bought them back later in the day at $40.01.

Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.33.02 AM Screen Shot 2014-07-04 at 10.33.06 AM

Then the second was a $2,702 loss on GLUU. He shorted 44,500 shares at $4.94 on the 30th and bought them back later at $5. Notice that he didn’t let his losses get out of control and cut them quickly. That’s one of the biggest hurdles many traders face and the reason so many lose money. When you cut your losses quickly like our gurus, your gains easily make up for it in the long run.

Slow Trading Sessions Don’t Mean Small Profits for Superman

Jul 3, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Best Trades, Profitly  //  Comments Off

 

 

 

This week has already been a great one for Superman and his students! Even though it’s the 4th of July holiday week, when most traders are laying back and just muddling through, Superman is catching some massive movers and making huge profits. Here is a quote from his watch list:

“I made $29,475 yesterday by perfectly using my strategy on all 3 of my types of trades ( Swing, Chart, Daytrade) on LONG , MTLS, CNYD, RCON !!!! IPO Tracker on the Super Pro Videos continues to be a hot spot for finding winners!!!….….…….have your own trade plan any time you enter a trade!!! Please note I have been much stricter with rule following !!!! ……… follow the rules NOT ME !!! …..when I do not follow rules I lose $$” Check out some of the screen shots of the trades:

unnamed

unnamed (1)

Here is a recent in depth and honest review of his alerts published on investimonials.

I want to write and in-depth review of Superman’s service while using him for the last 6 months or so.

Opinions here seem to be divided between people thinking he just front runs and is a fraud, or a bunch of other random stuff. Here is what I got out of this service, and why I think its good overall, but a bit expensive and not for people who just follow or have a small account (less than 10k) and wont be able to pay off their membership.

First the good:

Chatroom: The chat room is really good. All of the mods super has in the room are spread about a bunch of different specializations. Some are looking to take BIG positions in select stocks and ride it out. others are very good at spotting select chart setups, and others are very good at calling out sectors and finding those most levered to trend. Overall My biggest wins in this room have been from the chat room alerts, specifically from the moderators. They know which news is material which isn’t. They are on top of all earnings reports and put in their insight. For the most part they all announce their trades and why pretty quickly, and their trades aren’t as subjective to massive spiking as superman’s alerts tend to be, because he focuses a lot of low-float and momentum micro caps, although not always.

The Okay, but could better:

1. The videos are very meh and very rarely does he actually go through his strategy. I’ve actually started from the beginning and watched some of the videos in between to see if I could learn more, and while in some videos he does go in-depth into what he looks for into earnings, or what websites he uses to research and what is methodology is, don’t expect a bunch of videos that are solely there to teach you how he finds or what he scans for. For the most part the videos will overview current stocks that are in play and give his takes on the chart patterns, with potential exits or entrances.

2. Superman can be somewhat detached/aloof. This is very dependent on your personally and what you want to get out of the service. Superman is constantly telling everyone to follow rules and not him. to have a plan, etc etc. While I am all for this, as I trade almost full time and spend a lot of time researching and learning, this type of attitude can be off puting to some looking for a mentor. It would probably more constructive if superman at least went over what stocks he is looking to get out of, what he looks for at inflection points, and was overall more involved in some of the finer points of his strategy. While I don’t really use this service for this specifically, as I mostly use it for the chatroom and the research/hidden gems superman finds, I can see why a lot of people who just want to trade while having a full time job can be disappointing or confused when some alerts/picks inevitably miss, or market turbulence causes them to lose confidence.

3. The watchlist

The bad:

1. The alerts. I was debating putting this here under “the bad” but I’ll go ahead and write down my issues. For one a lot of superman’s alerts can be ambiguous. While he does state a time period of sorts, it is very varied and hard to truly see what his plan is with some stocks. Furthermore a lot of his alerts can be alerts betting on continued momentum. While these alerts are fine when the market is in rage mode, be very very careful following these alerts when the market is slowing down. Furthermore, Superman’s picks are usually also stocks that in action, and after he alerts them they can be even more in action and spike, creating some high risk entries. Overall though, the more substance based alerts, especially picks/research where he finds things hidden in 10k’s and read the fine prints in sites can be huge. some of the most unreal gainers while I’ve been in the service have been alerts superman has given out after finding hidden gems that are potential game changers in company websites, presentations or 10k’s. It it these picks that I try to focus on, and while rare, can cover the cost of membership very quickly.

conclusion: Buy this for the chatroom and the hidden gems superman occasionally finds that can make your year. Don’t focus too much on the videos and do not follow his trade alerts as they usually spike. Instead focus solely on the Major finds and hidden gems he finds such as ARCW CAMT CARA ZOOM etc where he digs into websites, 10k’s etc and finds information that could potentially be game changing.

Furthermore, and most importantly, be VERY careful following his strategy or alerts when the market is turbulent. during shake out periods such as now (march-april 2014) some of his past picks can lose 40%+ . It is of course impossible to determine when these periods hit, but overall if things aren’t roaring, and some of the bigger momentum stocks start losing traction. try to focus only on his hidden gem finds.

Examples of hidden gems by superman

ARCW: He found this at 8-10 dollars when it was trading w/ less than 10k volume a day. He found additive manufacturing (3d printing) and a bunch of other interesting things in the 10k and confrence calls.

CARA: right after ipo he found cannboid mentions in some drugs on the website. the line where cannaboids was mentioned was only one or two I believe.

Weekly Roundup June 23-27

Jul 1, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Profitly, Profitly Weekly  //  Comments Off

Are you guys ready for another weekly roundup?! Let’s waste no time and get right down to the big trades of the week.

We’ll start with Tim. First he had a $3,671 profit on LITB. Tim bought 15,700 shares at $6.38 on the 27th and sold them later in the day at $6.61. Entry comments: Buying this online retailer after a slight increase in expected earnings & intraday uptrend…the beginnings of a turnaround? Not much downside and this stock is down from the $20s so I like the potential upside here, goal is to make 30-50 cents/share in the next day or so, analyst upgrades probable Monday, also 1.24 million shorts :) Also bought some in my http://tim.ly/timlong portfolio for longer term hold. Exit comments: Nearly 30 cents/share in under 30 minutes, yes please I’ll take it without any overnight risk…still holding longer term position, but this is a PERFECT Friday afternoon short squeeze as outlined in my TIMtactics DVDs, take advantage of this DVD sale and study! http://tim.ly/studysave.

Then we have a $3,395 profit on CHGG. Tim shorted 35,000 shares at $8.04 on the 25th and bought them back the same day at $7.94. Entry comments: Reshorted CHGG on this tweet http://tim.ly/1o3U44D Seeking Alpha expose coming tomorrow talking about intensifying competition from AMZN, yes it’s a technical breakout but these breakout traders should run & hide on news of this expose, lately Seeking Alpha exposes have impacted stocks the day before the expose came out like REFR, goal is to make 30-50 cents/share. Exit comments: Now 7.83 and falling so I just played it too safe, but this stock scares me…just spiked back to 8 for a minute after multiple chatrooms/Twitter exposed the coming expose, it probly goes lower, but I don’t even know anymore as some Seeking Alpha exposes are best played the day before and this stock still seems strong…taking small profits overall today and glad to be out, maybe I get back in before the market close, but tough to call here.

Then we have a $7,505 profit on CRDS. Tim bought 45,000 shares at $3.56 on the 26th and sold them the same day at $3.73. Entry comments: Breaking out of nice chart pattern/January highs, straight out of http://tim.ly/natedvd & alerted by several people in TIMalerts chat, thanks JGram & Paretto, I tried buying at 3.50, some other big buyer beat me, goal is the high 3s, not a fast mover, but gotta respect a high volume chart breakout like this, low risk as gotta get out if it doesn’t hold 3.45 breakout. Exit comments: Sold all remaining in afterhours trading as it’s hitting my target of 3.80…this isn’t a fast mover and I LOVE the breakout, just not sure how long it can really last since it’s up a ton on relatively no news…long story short I’m taking $8k profit with no overnight risk…during a slow summer I’ll take that ANY day, congrats longs!

We do have a loss to talk about as well. He made a mistake and lost $2,000 on CHGG. He shorted 20,000 shares at $7.89 on the 25th and bought them back later in the day at $7.99. Entry comments: Looks toppy here at bigtime resistance at 8ish, this is a speculative short as it was a speculative buy for me in the low 7s, volume is fading from the recent spike, risk of losing 10-15 cents/share, downside of 5-70 cents/share, I like the risk/reward, will try to give this some time. Exit comments: Covered for small losses, looks strong, no thanks, small losses can never hurt that bad, big losses kill.

Then we have Superman. Let’s start with a $1,825 profit on TNXP. He bought 5,000 shares on the 23rd at $13.15 and bought them back later in the day at $13.52. Entry comments: TRADE/SWING personal stop loss tight area 12.75 isn and personal target 13.65-14 plus if it works. Exit comments: SUPER TRADE from watch list…may go higher and will keep on watch but I like starting Monday off with a $$$ trade.

Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 6.32.32 PM Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 6.32.39 PM

Lastly we have a $5,010 profit on KONE. He bought 5,000 shares on the 24th at $5.40 and sold them the next day at $6.40. Entry comments: DO NOT CHASE – TRADE/SWING into earrings ..thesis is this low floater moves into earnings as they said profitability this year in last ER…..personal stop 5 area and personal target 6-7 plus if it works. Exit comments: super trade – earnings are tomorrow.

Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 6.32.57 PM Screen Shot 2014-06-29 at 6.33.02 PM

 

Last but not least we have InvestorsLive. First is a $2,980 profit on GPRO. He shorted 1,500 shares on the 27th at $39.26 and bought them back later in the day at $37.27.

 Screen Shot 2014-07-01 at 5.53.56 PM Screen Shot 2014-07-01 at 5.54.01 PM

Then we have a $9,553 loss on IRM. He shorted 6,000 shares on the 25th at $34.79 and bought them back later that day at $36.38. Comments: Auto import trades as of end of June – trading got sloppy in Wedbush the last 2 weeks of the quarter — ETC and Etrade have been great but not how I wanted to finish out June in Wedbush (account I verify).

Introducing the best new finance app

Jun 29, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Announcements, Profitly  //  Comments Off

Profitly finally has its own app that you can download for free in the app store! Now it is easier than ever to stay on top of the market and who is making money. You can easily access your Profitly subscriptions, go into the chatrooms, take a look at the guru’s latest watchlists, and even access the video lessons we are constantly uploading in order for you to become a better trader!

Here are a few screenshots:
This is what it will look like in the app store for iTunes users.

This is an example of what the chatrooms will look like. We wanted to make sure it was extremely easy to send out a message right from your phone and keep track of which stocks are the biggest movers that everyone is keeping an eye on. You can also find out why those stocks are moving by looking at what others are saying in the chat or asking someone as well. Maybe you’ve even spotted a mover before anyone else and you want to point it out and get more details before you jump in. There might have been a mailer promotion sent out that you hadn’t heard about or maybe the company just beat on its latest earnings report. This tool is especially useful for traders that are just starting out. You can ask questions and get other subscribers opinions before making a trade, essentially increasing your odds of making a good trade and profiting from it.

Screen Shot 2014-06-28 at 8.55.37 AM

This is an example of what the sidebar will look like once you log in. You can click on the newsletter you are subscribed to and get the latest information sent out to the users by the guru. This could be watch lists, video lessons, or other learning tools that the guru feels like their subscribers need to see.

Screen Shot 2014-06-28 at 8.55.47 AM

This is what the screen will look like when you click on a note that was sent out with a video lesson. Learning tools are now right at your fingertips. You could be taking the train home from work or sitting on an airplane traveling for a vacation and you can still easily access the important video lessons that all of our gurus send out on a frequent basis. There are no longer any excuses for falling behind on what’s going on in the markets or not taking the time to learn more about trading on a daily basis.

This app just launched so we only have one review right now, but it’s a great one! Check it out and then download the app and let us know what you think by giving us a review as well!

Great App! by Da Medic

I’ve been a Challenge Student for approximately three months now. I utilize my iPhone for just about everything and anything. I can’t express how great and practical this App is to have on my phone. I’m ecstatic it was created for us. It goes to show how much Tim Sykes and his team care about the Challenge Students. Thanks!

Series: The Greatest Trades of All-Time Part Three

Jun 27, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Best Trades, Profitly  //  Comments Off

We started a new series on Profitly last week covering some of the greatest trades of all time. Millions of trades are made every day, but most of them are not for the kinds of profits we are diving in to. They’re more likely to be a few hundred here, a few thousand there. It’s hard to compare to the two trades we are highlighting below, although some of the trades on Profitly are worth noting. For instance, Tim made more than $70k on this trade ($70,982 profit EKSO), lx21 made $470k on this trade ($470,394 profit STXS), Superman made $419k here ($419,777 profit SPEX), Tim’s second millionaire student made $100k on this trade ($101,404 profit FNMA), his first millionaire student made $88k on this trade ($88,401 profit LSCG), and InvestorsLive made $80k on this trade ($80,728 profit RAYS). But alas, it is really hard to top the trades detailed below. First we discussed Jesse Livermore’s $100 million profit when he shorted the 1929 stock market crash and second we discussed Paul Tudor Jones’ $100 million when he predicted Black Monday in 1987. Business Insider does a great job of finding the best trades. Then we covered Andy Krieger’s $300 million profit by shorting the Kiwi (New Zealand Dollar) in the late 80′s and then Jim Rogers’ prediction of the long term bull market in commodities. We’ll cover yet another two great trades in this post. First we have a trade by the very well known George Soros, who Tim did a profile on just a week or so ago. This guy shorted the British pound and made $1 billion. Yes, we have now headed into the billion dollar range, not just millions anymore. His face probably looked something like this when he found out how much he made. Soros-George-bugeyedmonster Back in the 90s when Britain was thriving, not only did George Soros short the pound, he borrowed heavily to do so. This was when pound was being traded on a fixed exchange rate. Soon after Soros’s short bet, the British government realized that it would loose billions if it continued to artificially prop up the pound. They withdrew from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, and the pound plummeted. This short bet bagged Soros at least $1 billion, elevating him to ‘brilliant billionaire investor’ status. This is the equivalent of roughly $1.8 billion today! g_soros Next up we have Stanley Druckenmiller’s bet on the German mark that made $1 billion. During the same time that George Soros was shorting the pound, Stanley Druckenmiller, who was then employed by Soros’s Quantum fund, was betting on the German mark. Before the Berlin Wall fell, the reunification of East and West Germany seems like so mammoth a task that the German mark was depressed to an extreme level. Initially Druckenmiller put several million into a bet that the mark would rally, but later, on Soros’s say-so, he increased his purchase to about $2 billion (I guess Soros lives by the saying “go big or go home! Good thing he is smart enough to get away with it). The mark rallied, and Druckenmiller made the fund $1 billion. Since it was during the same time period, the inflation adjustment is still the same and it is equivalent to $1.8 billion today. Now he’s all like “ha, ya, I did make that much. Come at me bro!” MI-BF357_DRUCKE_G_20100818174413 As we pointed out in the previous posts, the Profitly gurus may not be making million dollar profits on single trades, but as you can see in the links above, they are making trades with profits equal to or even above the average person’s annual salary, meaning they are still a far cry from the average investor who puts money in their 401k and hopes to become a millionaire by the time they retire. Sure, you have years like 2013 where you would have done “ok” by investing simply in an S&P500 index fund, but most years are a far cry from the 30% return we saw then. This year for example the index is only up about 5% or so. Not so great if you ask me. We still aren’t finished covering these amazing trades either! The series will continue with part four very soon.

Secondly we have a $1,589 profit on MEET. He bought 10,000 shares on the 12th at $1.98 and sold them on the 18th at $2.14.

Exit comments: Got up to 2.40 premarket on news of an analyst upgrade, but this stock has so many bagholders, I’m lucky to escape with a 10% profit…the secondary spike was predictable after last week’s great mobile chat news, but this price action is disappointing so I’m out…congrats to all longs, no way to lose $ on this.

Screen Shot 2014-06-21 at 8.21.57 AM Screen Shot 2014-06-21 at 8.22.10 AM

Lastly we have a $1,337 profit on CMCM. He bought 6,100 shares on the 17th at $22.54 and sold them that same day at $22.81. Entry comments: Buying small speculative position on this hot mobile stock breaking out to new highs above 22.50, nice 20 cent/share dip off day highs I’m buying on, quiet period ends today so expect some overnight news, goal is to sell in the 23s or even 24s in 1-2 days. Exit comments: Made nearly 40 cents/share which is solid for a speculative trade even though it’s a high priced stock…this one usually dips after big spikes so I’m not taking chances, might re-buy it before the market close for potential gap/spike but we gotta see how it finishes first, for now taking decent profits.
