In tonight's podcast I discuss two stocks: Dolby (DLB) a stock I have blogged about previously, and Badger Meter (BMI). Both stocks reported great earnings and have solid 5-Yr records.
I also read a poem, "Notice" by Steve Kowit, and discuss a recent trade in Microsoft Stock.
In tonight's podcast, I read a poem, "Filling Station" by Elizabeth Bishop, discuss WMS Industries (WMS), a stock that I hold in my trading portfolio, and talk about how a bear market has affected my own portfolio management strategy. How I now allow initial purchases in my 5 position minimum to incur a 16% loss before selling, and how I replace those minimum holdings with smaller positions and now replace new positions in the 6 to 20 position portion of my portfolio at larger size based on the other positions.
Tonight's podcast, after a long hiatus of podcasting, finds me discussing a few changes in my investment approach to deal with the terrible bear market and negative trading environment, reading a poem by T.S. Eliot, sharing a letter from Bill who writes to tell me to get back podcasting, and discussing one of my recent purchases Haemonetics (HAE), which had a great quarter, beat expectations, raised guidance, and had a solid "5-yr Restated" financials from Morningstar.com.
In this evening's podcast, I read a poem, "Adventures of Isabel" by Ogden Nash, review my Trading Portfolio as of 6/28/08, and discuss portfolio management and responding to market influences as revealed in one's own portfolio holdings. In addition, I discuss my approach of responding to market conditions by automatically shifting into and out of equities. I also comment on the controversy I generated by buying shares of Visa (V) and then selling them just two weeks later at an 8% loss.
In tonight's podcast I read a poem by Carl Sandburg, "Chicago" and examine Trimble for the third time since 2004. They reported a terrific quarter for results and I look at Morningstar.com, Yahoo "key statistics", Fidelity.com eresearch for valuation/profitability and a chart from StockCharts.com.

On tonight's podcast I discuss Satyam (SAY). Prior to doing this, I read a poem by Raymond Carver, and share with you a letter from Don, a listener, with suggestions. Satyam is reviewed with emphasis on the latest quarter, the Morningstar.com report, some valuation numbers, and a point & figure chart from StockCharts.com.
In tonight's podcast (a second one at that), I read a poem "AfterApple-Picking" by Robert Frost,and then go ahead and discuss my investment strategy that involves a little bit of picking of the fruit from my stocks . This podcast summarizes how I decide when to buy a stock, when to sell a stock, and how to respond to market influences by observing your own portfolio moving back and forth from cash into equities and back again. Even my cat got into the act tonight!
On Tonight's Podcast I read a poem from Dylan Thomas, "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night" and review FTI Consulting (FCN).

In tonight's podcast I share with you a poem "Things I Didn't Know I Loved" by Nazim Hikmet a Turkish poet. Then I review an old favorite of mine Hologic (HOLX) which continues to produce superb financial results, and discuss briefly how portfolio management is helping me deal with the volatility of the stock market and the possible bear market/recession that we are dealing with.
