Weekly Stock Pick

Buy Sell Hold
First I’m sick, so this is an abbreviated post today.

The Market Last Week

Will earnings season keep boosting the market higher? Friday’s unemployment report increases. Madoff family members are being sued for hundreds of millions. It’s October and time for caution, especially after this year’s run up since March.

My Stock Pick This Week

Is a large technology company who just bought another big technology company. Michael Dell bought Ross Perot’s company Perot Systems. I don’t know how the fundamentals will play out on Dell because of this, but Dell's stock chart currently looks good enough that it will, and that they have a chance of surviving these current economic times with their computer business. In case it doesn’t stick to stop-loss rules and buy back at cheaper prices later on.
