Thanks Briggs. You're the man. I got out today at $1.93. Made a little money. I'm a small player but I am very happy.

just got out myself at 1.93. Hit my target and I'm gone. Made a nice return on it. I think I'm going to put this money back into iGoi... they are on a roll.

Remember---just because Im out doesnt mean the stock wont go up higher--its just a feel I had to take a profit there. This was not a long term investment--this was a pure swing trade. When its down in the 1.00 range a movement from 1.37 to 1.97 is the same thing as buying a stock at 13.70 and selling it 6 dollars more at 19.70--which is one heckuva nice movement. the difference is down in the 1's when you have 58k shares to dump--you need to find the buy volume to dump it into and it was there--close enough to my original goal. Never wrong with taking a profit on anything.

i really appreciate the advice briggs. there is nothing harder than knowing when to sell, i've found that out a few times before. the biggest thing ive taken from you on here, is that you should always have a target and once you hit that target, don't look back. i was looking at taking in a few hundred bucks on this one and once i hit my target i high-tailed out. im still considering keeping some money tied in this though.. definitely a mover so far.

really though, appreciate the advice and thanks again. still owe you a beer (a few rather) at the next knicks game.

EGHT busted into the 2's. Thats why I wonder about keeping my mouth shut on the sell--some people who held longer couldve made more money. I believed 2++ 19.8 is very close tot hat goal--close enough to take profits but I wish more of you could make more money on something like this.

Don't sweat it.

Nobody gets in at the low and out at the top.

Or

The BenchMark of success is not beating the index or the market but accomplishing your goal.

Or

"Greed Kills!"

Nobody puts a gun to buy or sell on your recommendations. Sure its up, but so is the market and I take it most have many other positions in that are carrying a portfolio. IF this is their only money in then its just a "Play" thing. Good for them either way. All you did was take them to the party and let them know that you had your fun and was leaving. If so, they need to find their own ride home!!!!! Thats as good as it gets!!!

Quick question: Are you still holding ARIA or are you out of it? GSIT? They have been nice! Just wondering if you still in.

Anger sells, don't buy!

Im all out---got everything out between 1.98 and 1.96

Thanks for the heads up. I only had 200 shares but I bought at 1.31 and got out at 2.25 which is a nice jump in under three months. Thanks again.

lol @ being BANNED by Martin since 11/07/10 (for asking if Mr. Earl had a point). Really, Martin? C'mon. This is the internet. I've seen much worse on this site. By Earl himself. Drop the hypocrisy.
