By Wednesday night I will be completely done with my college career. I have two more finals to go (one easy, one hard) and then five years of college will be completed. Looking back, I've had a pretty good time, had a few great teachers, and met some good people along the way. In high school I definitely lost some of my competitive spirit. I'm happy to say that while in college I've gained this spirit back. I think this will definitely be important for the next stage of my life.
Jones Soda had a great day (up 7.74%) and hopefully it has a pullback in the near future. While noticing this price movement, I also noticed that I need to transfer over more funds if I want to take a decent sized position. I figure somewhere around 200-300 shares. JSDA sometimes reminds me of this bank I looked into a few months ago. It was a bank located in Las Vegas (VLLY) and I was semi-interested in buying it. Then it went up, so I was hoping for a pullback the next day- but it still went up. It seemed like for two straight weeks the price kept moving up and I kept saying to myself "tomorrow it will pullback a bit". I never bought any and took other positions when the stock eventually settled down a bit.
Aeropostale finished the day up 3.39%, but I'm still unsure if I want to take a position. This would probably be more of a momentum position rather than something long term.
Google had a nice day! Cramer said (yeah I watched the show again) it will hit $350!
My portfolio: I finished up a bit (about $60) and my brokerage is using a new trading platform so I need to get used to it. All my positions were so-so; nothing really special.
I did come across an article about the best ten stocks under $10. Here are the tickers that were highlighted: DXPE, RADS, GEOI, CTGI, STV, PRZ (which was also highlighted in a quarterly magazine I receive- Equities), VLFG, ERS, ENG, and ORCC.
The link gives a bio on each company as well.
Job stuff: I received some good advice from the school's career center leader and I've begun to use a target resume rather than a general one. I'm also not looking too hard or applying for too many jobs this week. I'll be on vacation next week and will begin my full-time search when I get back.
