I was watching CNBC on Friday and they had an analyst on saying IBM is a value buy right now and a possible short-term buy to the $80 range. This does seem interesting, but then I would have to commit over 30% of my net worth for 100 shares- a little too risky for me!
Jones Soda: stockdiva made a comment about this one and I thought to respond in a post. I haven't bought any shares mainly because I haven't done any research yet. I read a quick article on their last earnings and noticed a few things (I think a drop in operating earnings and there was one other thing that stuck out). I think if I had more available money I would be more interested in taking a position (after reading more). It's had a nice run-up and I'll continue to watch it. (JSDA.OB)
LB had another good day (+4.7%) and it's nearing the $15 level. Everything else seems to be okay and my active positions are up a little over 3% for the year (NCC is starting to trend upwards).
I think this might be an important week for the markets. We've had a somewhat breather from the declines, and this week will show if the market has some strength or not. Basically, it seems like people are waiting for some sort of direction.
I was emailed about a site the other day so I checked it out and I think it's a useful site.
The site, Saving Advice, is all about saving and money tips. The site has a nice forum section where people can post/respond about a variety of topics.
Hopefully sometime this week I will write a little more about job hunting and books (CFA books are on the way).
