Weekly Roundup: Our Gurus’ Best Trades

Apr 7, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Best Trades, Profitly  //  Comments Off on Weekly Roundup: Our Gurus’ Best Trades

Welcome to the first weekly roundup of guru trades on Profitly! Now it will be easier than ever to see the big trades that gurus Sykes, Superman, and InvestorsLive are executing on a weekly basis. We’ll include both the wins and the losses, since Profitly is all about be fair and transparent.

Each week we will start with the guru that was the most profitable, and this past week it appears that Superman takes that spot. We aren’t going to write about every single trade in this post, since that would be extremely boring. We are just going to cover the big, exciting trades that you all want to learn from.

Alright, so let’s talk about the super hero guru on Profitly who is up $124,360.33 in the past 30 days. (http://profit.ly/user/super_trades/trades?filter=date:30days)

Starting out with a bang, we have a $46,674 profit on WATT (http://profit.ly/1MoiH1). Superman posts notes on many of his trades so you can get an idea of how he decided when to get in or get out of a position. Superman bought 10,240 shares at $8.75 on the Friday before this week and sold them on Monday at $13.32, which is a 52% increase in share price! He definitely earned his name with this one.

Next we have a $6,025 profit on ATRM. (http://profit.ly/1MojGD) Entry comments: DO NOT CHASE LOW FLOAT HUGE SPREAD – history of runs, did odd acquisition but no immediate shares……personal stop loss 5 area personal target 6-8 if it works….small position. Exit comments: SUPER TRADE! He bought 3,500 shares at $5.55 and sold at $7.27 for a 31% gain, boom!

Lastly, we have a loss. (http://profit.ly/1Moe5H) This is a trade he has been holding on to since the middle of March though, so it’s not like the loss was just based this week. It was just realized this week since he exited the position. This was a $9,400 loss on OBCI. Entry comments: SWING – personal stop loss 3 area ….personal target 4-6 plus if it works ..they said last year new product that kills all germs launched in Q1 or Q2 Aug 14 PR – Peter Dornau concluded, saying, “We are in the final stages of development of packaging of our new Performacid products. We have started initial presentations to several national chain retailers. As previously announced, we are on schedule for a first or second quarter 2014 full product launch.” Exit comments: out for loss for now will keep on watch I wanted more bullish statements from mgmt.. He bought 20,000 shares at $3.37 and sold them at $2.90.

Second we have Tim, who also had a fantastic week and is up $44,812.23 over the past 30 days, according to Profitly. (http://profit.ly/user/timothysykes/trades?page=1&size=25&fromDate=3/7/14&toDate=4/6/14&filter=date:30days)

Earlier in the week he banked a profit of $6,236 on PSID (http://profit.ly/1MohyO). Tim posts entry and exit comments on each of his trades as well, so here are some notes that are extremely helpful and can help you learn how he decided when to get in and out of a trade: Entry comments: Buying this as it’s chipped away a big seller at .085 on news of a contract with US government contract, read press release http://tim.ly/1hUoRuR sketchy company, but it might really run if people read this news, good risk/reward, goal is to sell in the .10-.12 range, nothing huge but not much downside either. Exit comments: Sold for quick $5k+ profit due to this ridiculous villa not having great internet http://instagram.com/p/mLK3HkDVmB/ same type of problem as the $12 million yacht when we found EKSO, funny how these luxuries can’t have good wifi, this might still run but I wanna teach you to take profits when your trading environment isn’t ideal. He got in at $0.085 with 350,000 shares and out at $0.103. That’s more than a 20% move and he did this trade in one day!

Second we have Tim’s big loss of the week. He took a $3,865 hit on YOD. (http://profit.ly/1Mohzi) Entry comments: Bought some ahead of earnings. Too many potentially exciting announcements possible later today after market close. It is definitely a risk, but the reward outweighs the risks, especially given the 30% drop off the highs. EXTREMELY SMALL POSITION GIVEN INABILITY TO CUT LOSSES QUICKLY. Goal is 6s or the 7s. This is true gambling as I will be flying during this trade. Exit comments: Cutting losses quickly as best I can from the airport. I broke my own rules about guessing on earnings and paid the price. Great video lesson coming. Tim bought 6000 shares at $4.86 and sold them at $4.21.

Third we have his best trade of the week. (http://profit.ly/1MoiLk) Tim made $7,147 on VEND. Entry comments: Surprising earnings winner, PR says high est sales ever in March http://tim.ly/1e9nIi4 and 30%+ year over year growth, I don’t believe them, but the stock has gotten crushed and no real resistance until 5ish so I’ll dip buy, the beauty of pumps, they can bounce nicely too! Goal is to sell in the low to mid 4s later today and tomorrow. Exit comments: Got a little gap up/morning spike, but wall of sellers at 4.30ish, no thanks, got the 50 cents/share of upside I wanted, taking safe profits, good trade! Tim bought 24,023 shares at $4.94 and sold the next day at $4.24.

Lastly we have another big win on WATT. Tim made $4,357 on this trade. (http://profit.ly/1Moiuq) Entry comments: Buying for end of the day spike/morning gap up/spike, this has gapped/spiked in the morning roughly $1/share every day, key breakout level is $15 so even if it only spikes 50 cents/share, it’ll be a breakout and should squeeze some shorts…even if it tops at 15 I have some decent 40 cents/share profits, GREAT risk/reward buying here, don’t chase it though, it moves quick, goal is to sell into a 50-75 cent/share spike. Exit comments: Sold PERFECTLY INTO MORNING GAP UP…trade couldn’t have gone any better…video lesson documenting the whole thing coming, this still might run, but there are big sellers everywhere so I’m taking profits and lockin it in safelyyyyyy, congrats everyone. He bought 12,000 shares at $14.62 and sold them the next day at $14.98.

We’ll round it out with a great week from InvestorsLive as well. This guy is up a total of $112,005.65 over the last 30 days, according to Profitly. NICE! http://profit.ly/user/InvestorsLive/trades?page=1&size=25&fromDate=3/7/14&toDate=4/6/14&filter=date:30days

First we have a $7,852 profit on PLUG. (http://profit.ly/1MojRz) This was a one day trade as well. Nathan shorted 20,000 shares of PLUG on April 4 at $7.552 and closed his position at $7.15 later that day. Remember, when you short a stock, you want the price of the stock to go lower.

Third we have a $1,819 profit on GNK (http://profit.ly/1MojS1). This was yet another trade betting on the fall in the price of the stock. Nathan shorted 5,000 shares at $2.65 and bought them back at $2.28.

Fourth we have a $2,229 profit in BIOF. (http://profit.ly/1Moip2) Nathan bought 10,200 shares of this stock at $6.50 and sold them at $6.72.

Lastly, we have Nathan’s only big loss for the week. (http://profit.ly/1Moip0) WIN wasn’t such a winner for him, taking a $1,780 loss. Nathan bought this stock at $8.68 and sold it at $8.51. Too bad he didn’t short it like the rest of his great trades for the week. Oh well, still a great week where he earned more than the majority of people do in a month! Not bad!
