TAKING PROFITS

August 13, 2019. We have sold the following: TANNL. Just isn’t doing much. We have a tiny gain. Time to move on and buy something better. PBY. We purchased PBY at a deep discount in March and it spiked up to $25.93. A sell limit order is in for $25.93 which if filled is a […]

With lower lows and lower highs, it looks like sellers are starting to look at LADR. We were planning on selling several months back, but in mid June, […]
