(Top Pick Feb 8/06. Up 5.5%.) A “Pairs Trade”, shorting gold Stocks (XGD-T) and going long on Gold (GLD-N). Turned out to be an OK trade. Gold now looks good again and he is looking to buy this once more.

Under performed Merck (MRK-N) quite dramatically. Between these two would prefer to own Merck. Making a bit of a bottoming pattern which is constructive. Needs to take out some resistance and if they can break through the $26 level there could be some good upside.

The alternative energy sources theme is not going away anytime soon. Question is, how far in the future earnings are being discounted. The chart gives him a bit of concern. Would buy at the lower end of the trading range.

Positive on the outlook for energy. Did a couple of things that diversified away from their core area and has been a problem for their stock. At this point, the risk/reward is pretty good. Very strong resistance towards its highs.

A very cyclical type stock. Very strong support in the mid-$40. Thinks it will come back and test that support.

In one of the bottoming pictures now. The risk/reward is very strong. Looking out a couple of years, the value is starting to build.
