I’m taking some dough and building a dogs tech portfolio starting with DELL, HP & RIMM. I’m planning to hold 3 quarters or more — what other companies should we be researching for the dogs?

from Seeking Alpha’s Spencer Knight:
“Fusion is working out the kinks for the ioDrive 2; which is turning out to be a more difficult task than expected.”
This is the first I have heard anything about challenges getting the ioDrive2 into production — frankly, there was no attribution for the comment so I am really wondering if it’s accurate.

As a comparison, OCZ is at 81% and STEC is at 87%. The reason is simply there are not enough shares of FIO to go around. That will change next month when an additional release of shares comes online and institutions can purchase without triggering SEC-required reporting

The following chart was created by Barry Bergman courtesy The Blue Collar Investor:
Looking slightly bearish but could change based on news coming from Europe.
However, the reasons that I’m slightly bearish:
- Possible Head & Shoulders forming (very bearish)
- Left shoulder and head in green circle
- Possible right shoulder could form in vicinity of red circle
- Trend line broken over last two days…close below trend line (red)
- MACD, a momentum indicator, is showing bearish (histogram below zero line)
- Stochastics showing a bearish trend (below 50)
- Decreasing volume
Potential near term targets:
- Next upside target – $35-$36
- Next downside target – $28-$29…the gap area due to Barron’s article

I just read the new S1 and I have to say this is a great submission — really the poster-child of registration statements. Full Disclosure: I am no expert and I am long FIO.

One of my pal’s from back east just crafted this chart:
Chart shows 2 Bullish patterns:
- Inverse Head and Shoulders
- Cup and Handle
Both may have finished a short term run because of:
- Bearish Divergence in volume
- On Balance Volume (Institutional buying/selling) is beginning to turn
- Price is at the upper Bol Band…normally, price action after hitting or piercing the upper band tends to revert to the mean and come back into the bands…towards the 20 SMA
- Most recent candle is showing a “Doji” (almost). A Doji indicates indecision and at the top of a price movement can potentially indicate a reversal is coming up.
- Net/Net…watch this like a hawk!
