From the Avery original filter you can add EVC, PACB & VIPS as 2% gainers. This is going to be my last post on this site as my wife has headed to Florida with $600,000 to buy our retirement home for cash, how happy do you think she is? I'll be leaving as soon as our Vegas home has settled on 29 October. To the original Avery filter for a minute: when I saw him post this 5 years ago I saw a gold mine as I understood what 2% compounding can do, and am not sure anyone here understands that. Am also not sure which filter Olathegolf came up with some results from but he posted that of 195 entries, 191 made 2% & that's 98%!!! I said that I'd made 100% because, if they drop, they rather quickly (3 weeks or so) come back to get the 2% gain.
What I'm sure of? I knew that when I made a comment about what I'd been able to do with the original filter, it wouldn't take long for someone to say "it needs to be modified/changed and you're full of BS".....and it didn't. It doesn't need to be modified. Something else I'm sure of? I'll give it a month or so & everyone will drift away from this method because its too slow at making money or whatever reason they may come up with.
And for Durgin: he thought he'd found the second coming of Bernie Madoff....he'd found a liar and a scammer. Good luck Durgin in finding another Madoff because you didn't find him here.
NOTHING NEEDS MODIFIED, TAKE 2% A WEEK & YOU'RE IN UNBELIEVABLE SHAPE IN A FEW YEARS. Take care, Frank

I mentioned an option if you didn't like the "buy at open on Monday" method. Today was a rather big down opening & I'd said you might want to choose to wait & when the stock went below its Monday open you could put in a buy stop to get in at its original open price. That's what I did today & got in and out of CSIQ, DUST, HSOL, CPRX & STP with 2% on each. That was on Avery's original filter in this thread, not the one in the other thread that I think Kevin started. Anyone pay attention to that option? Frank

For Mahkoh: Not exactly sure what your comment about DUST means? I think you mean that DUST gained 3.5% for the one day? My goal was/is to take 2% & get out.....

For Durgin: The only thing you're right about is driving south not north.....my typo/mistake. I would suggest you stay out of the stock buying as you've proven you can't read & comprehend what's in front of you. As you said, "Just today, the average loss of this week's selected stocks was about 4%." I had already been in and out of them with a 2% gain before that happened. Whether I'm able to convince you of what this filter with it's probabilities for profit can do, would be the last of my concerns. If a person is willing to accept 2% per week its pretty easy to see what compounding can do. Most people would think, however, "2%.....that's not much!!" Oh well, you're free to see it however you want.

For anyone interested: Lord knows I'm not attempting to sell anything or trying to MAKE you believe anything. The only thing I'm offering to stick in your head is to get an understanding of what 2% can amount to over time & if I can have a minimum 80% chance of making that 2% every week, that that's about as good as the statistics can get.

That last post is the best example of one of my pet peeves: Did you notice how long it took before someone wanted to make some changes to a filter that can make you a 100% proift in a year as it is? Not long at all.

DUST was a 2% profit today from yesterday's open. Keep 2%'ing along.

For Amtmail: when I first started this I was buying the top 5. Now, I'm buying somewhere between 10 and 20...for me it would mostly depend on when their earnings date is for them (this week I bought 10). As for your question about ZHNE? I would assume that when you run this filter on the weekend, you will sort on the 2% column & then you'd see ZHNE as #7 on the list.

For SafeTrade: Somewhere between 10 and 20 as I said above. But, I've convinced myself to do nothing at all for next week unless the government shutdown and the debt ceiling are taken care of some way.

For Scott: I just put in a market order on Sunday night (at whatever the open price may be).

For a day when the DOW was down 136 it was a great day. In addition to the ones above that made 2%, you could add in EVC and VIPS & I'm done for the week (I am still in 3 others however). I would suggest that you not try to modify/alter Avery's filter. If you're willing to take 2% you'll be blown away at how the compounding will work after a year.

Should you want to try this, some might be more comfortable with this. If you'd want to wait until 9:45 or 10:00 & see the ones that may have taken a dip, you could put in a limit buy then at whatever the open was......maybe that would suit some of you better.

The closer it gets to the debt ceiling deadline I would think it might be good to just stay out of everything. I probably won't do anything next Monday if the DC clowns haven't agreed on something. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

As bad as you probably thought the morning was today, in the first hour I was in at the open & took 2% off of HSOL, CPRX, CSIQ, GMCR, & ZHNE.

For OLATHEGOLF: I just put in a good till canceled order at a 2% profit.

For TENNIS: Yes, I've gotten into the habit of putting in market orders on Sunday night as I'm on the west coast.

For THORODIN: Maybe not the answer you'd want to hear but I've never put in a stop loss at all. May sound crazy, but I decided that if I have an 80% chance of making 2%, that that's good enough for me & it worked out fine. It's been pretty rare, but if I got in & it took a dip from the open it would come back within a short time (2 weeks) so I just stuck with them.

I can't tell you how much profit I've missed out on but am not complaining. Like last week, CSIQ was up 39% from it's Monday opening to it's Friday close. And I stuck with my method & took a measly 2%.

For Scott & Durgin:Run this filter & you'll see that CSIQ has gone up 2% from its Monday open 49 of the past 52 weeks. That's a 94% probability. How can you not buy that & take 2%. Look on down the list and you can go to GMCR (Green Mountain Coffee) & it plus those above it went up 2% from its Monday open 47 of the past 52 weeks, and 47 of 52 is a 90% chance.

Did I have any problems? None for the first two years when I was buying the top 5 off the filter. In the third year, the volume I was buying would make it (sometimes) difficult to sell all of it at the 2% profit price. I eventually was buying all stocks that went up 2% 42 of the past 52 weeks......that is still an 80% probability. The one other thing I paid attention to was the earnings date & I simply stayed away from it until after the earnings came out.

I'm positive lots of people think that what I've said I've made is a lot of BS, but I certainly don't care. It was so slow for the first 8 months or so & kind of, all of a sudden, a light bulb went on...."Look how much I've made"! Look at GSAT on this week's run, for example. It closed Friday at $1.43 and a 2% increase is to $1.46. When I started I would have bought $4,000 worth or 2,797 shares. A 3 cent profit is $83.91 less the costs of the buy/sell. Doesn't sound like much huh? Do that 47 weeks out of 52 AND compound it & see where you're at.

It appears that Avery may not be here any more. Does anyone know how to get in touch with him? Frank
