Technology ETF. Likes technology but rather than buying an individual stock, buy the index. Thinks Cdn$ climb is done so you shouldn't get hurt too much by currency exchange. Had a giant spike in 2000 and then went through a long base, which had to digest the damage done by the spike. Had a low in 2002 and a higher low early this year. Now expecting a 2nd echo technology boom driven by Internet, China, etc.

Top Short Not participating with the rest of the market. A laggard. Either Short or if you own Sell. If you Short don't let it go over $46. He thinks the stock will take out the 52-week low of $41.39. Before Shorting, you could wait to see if it goes below $41.39.

If gold breaks out, large caps are going to go. Go with an ETF or one or two of the big guys. The key is, gold will run up, the yield on the bonds will start to run up also. When the yields get above 4%-4.5% and it is too frothy and you get out.

(A Top Pick July 3/08. Down 42.74%.) Had a stoploss of $6.30 so he was only down 12.6%. No one wants to pay up on aerospace so when the air clears this should move. Buy.

(A Top Pick July 3/08. Down 26.92%.) Stopped out with a 11% decline. Chart looks bullish. Alternative energy plays are going to be uranium, natural gas and coal. Wind, solar, etc. is a lot of money for what you are going to get out of it.

(A Top Pick July 3/08. Down 13.23%.) Was stopped out at a 14.3% decline. Not a gold bug but thinks in the fall gold will break out above $1000. Gold stocks are lagging so the ones that will follow the price of gold will be the big caps. (See Top Picks.)

Doesn't like potash stocks but does like this. An under performer at the beginning of this rally, has consolidated and formed a nice base and thinks it will rally and break out. Period from March to now looks like an elevated base. Take the advance from December to March and measure from the beginning of the corrected period (semi-log scale not linear), which brings you to about $15.
