Things getting a little better?

No luck on the earnings front. DWCH and INFT dissapointed. MIVA is our biggest dog, followed by Linn.ob, DWCH and then PDLI. Last week we had 5 up, 6 down. Since the start of the year we are still 10 up and 4 down. No buys or sells this past week.

Our model portfolio based on the stocks in this Blog is up 17% so far this year. Not as good as we would like, but not bad given the choppy market and 4 losers we have right now (we shoot for 80% win rate–not our current 71%). This model portfolio assumes $10,000 invested in each stock, less $10 commission each way (TD Ameritrade rate).

CAW-(Buy price $9.45, Valuation $18.40). Closed down $.03 for the week at $9.75. Yield about 3%. A group called Costa Brava Partnership is offering to buy the Class A stock at a “substantial premium”. The company has rejected this offer. The company is “in-play”. CB owns 7.9% of the stock. Up 3% so far. HOLD.

QADI-(Buy price $6.93, Valuaton $11.86). Closed at $7.63, up $.29. Up 10% so far. HOLD.

PDLI-(Buy price $19.31, Valuation > $30)–Closed at $18.37, up $1.86 from last week. Now down 5%. Still a BUY.
