Stock Pick–April 24, 2013

Category: Money & Investments — jerry @ 12:26 pm

A couple of unenthusiastics picks today–one of them downright cynical.

First up, I am going to venture back into Triumph Group, Inc. (TGI), which I picked up about 4 years ago and made decent money on. I sold it a couple of years ago and it kept going up and up (about quadruple what I originally paid for it), and now it’s back on my radar.

Irritated that I didn’t just hold onto it all this time (but that’s not what I do–I generally sell after a couple of years) I decided to lose all of my moral compass and pick up some stock in gun manufacturer Sturm, Ruger & Co. Inc. (RGR). I am an adamant anti-gun guy, so this is a “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” decision on my part. Maybe I’ll give all of my bloody earnings to charity or somesuch. Hold your nose and pick some up.

Good luck.

Stock Pick–April 3, 2013

Just one pick today and it’s practically a “penny stock”, so I’m going to be taking a relatively small position in it.

Lihua International, Inc. (LIWA) is my pick–it’s a Chinese copper manufacturing company.

I did well with my first Chinese stock: doubled my money in a few months on some automotive company. But since then, on the two or three occasions I’ve invested there, I’ve done poorly.

This one does intrigue me, though.

Good luck!
