Apr 29, 2014   //   by Profitly   //   Profitly  //  1 Comment

Time for another weekly roundup of guru trades on Profitly! Remember that we aren’t going to write about every single trade in this post, since that would be extremely boring. We are just covering the big, exciting trades that you all want to learn from.

Tim had yet another great week without any big losses but plenty of big profits. First up we have a $15,945 profit on ARTX. He shorted 50,000 shares on April 21 at $4.49 and bought them back on the 22nd at $4.18. Here were his trading comments: Entry comments: Shorted some as chatrooms saying Seeking Alpha expose coming tomorrow, risky though given the sector bounce today, expose apparently has CEO comments saying they won’t do batteries for electric cars, small position since this is speculative, goal is to make 30-50 cents/share. Exit comments: Locked in HUGE PROFIT, video lesson coming.

Second we have a $8,030 profit on XOOM. Tim bought 20,000 shares of this stock on April 23 at $23.38 and sold his shares at $23.78 the same day. Here are his comments: Entry comments: Went over this earnings winner the entire http://tim.ly/sykesmc webinar this morning, strong growth, mobile sector, terrible longterm chart, good dip buy, resistance at 23.60 which it just took out quite easily, goal is to sell int he 24s, wish it were lower priced but this is as solid an earnings winner as u can get. Exit comments: NAILED the breakout!! Wanted 24, but only got up to 23.90ish, choppy stock, spread currently 23.70 x 23.96, Congrats especially to http://tim.ly/sykesmc as I just spent basically 2 hours discussing why this stock would breakout ever since we started watching it at $23…now nearly $1/share higher mid-day, taking profits and locking it in…I know its higher priced so it’s not ideal, but STRONG mobile growth, this could keep going.

Third we have a $5,992 profit on VDSI. Tim bought 15,000 shares at $9.29 on the 24th and sold them at $9.73 the next day. Here are his comments: Entry comments: Buying this earnings winner on late afternoon dip after it got too ahead of itself earlier, multi-year breakout over 9 so limited downside, goal is to sell int he high 9s or low 10s tomorrow, not a volatile stock, kinda like VTNR which is also breaking out to 8.40 today but no news there…gotta buy earnings winner technical breakouts…already have longterm position, goal on this short-term position is far less to sell into a morning spike tomorrow. Exit comments: Now up to $10ish on the analyst upgrade & $12/share price target I LOVE it when a good trade comes together, this stuff is predictable guys, glad you saw it happen, could go more, but I’m taking my solid profit and leaving.
