Curiosity killed the cat and it’s a wonder it hasn’t killed us. Or maybe it’s a wonder Marketwatch hasn’t killed us. There is certainly enough spurious information to choke a horse (a Percheron). But occasionally we look at stocks in their articles (very suspiciously). We just looked at this list which was published today, the product of 10 “experts”. None of them are overtly bad. We feel like MSFT is past its day as an investment vehicle. MSPD is either just coming out of or is in a downtrend.
Several of them might make interesting speculations and we may buy them ourselves — especially ALME, and ZLCS.
We post these for the benefit of our readers who grow bored with our long term trend following methods while reminding you that speculating on individual stocks is like handicapping horses and is not recommended.
