Stock Picks–Jan. 22, 2014

Category: Money & Investments — jerry @ 1:31 pm

Just one pick today, and I actually have some enthusiasm for this one.

But first: Hey, how about that 2013, huh? My best year ever, as I had a 49% return on my investments (which you did, too, most likely, if you’ve been purchasing these recommendations).

Anyway, here we go 2014. I’m not expecting so much this year.

But I’m going to pick up some B Communications Ltd (BCOM), which is an Israeli telecom company. We could always use better communication in Israel, right?

As I said, I actually have some enthusiasm for this one (even though it is already up substantially over the last year), so I’ll be loading up.

Good luck!

Stock Picks–Jan. 2, 2014

As we close out what was a pretty darned good year for us in the market, I’ve got a couple of unenthusiastic picks to begin the new one.

First up, I’m taking a small position in Shiloh Industries Inc. (SHLO), and, per usual, I don’t exactly understand what they do–but I think it has something to do with making your car run quieter and not tip over.

I’m also going to yawn and take a small position in Rock-Tenn Company (RKT), which I thought I owned once before but apparently I’m mistaken. I might be confusing them with some other “packaging materials” company that I owned before.

I’m hoping 2014 will be another good year for us, since we will hopefully be getting rid of some of this wacky Congress that has hurt the economy so much the last several years.

Good luck!
