I recently started a stock picks group where I share all of my stock trades in real time, communicate to members what stocks I buy and sell, and give analysis on the stock market. I also highlight key pre market and after hours news and just try to create a daily trading plan so that we can all make money. I also highlight long term stocks to buy and hold because not everyone is a short term investor. Most importantly, I share with members the right way to trade and invest so they can make more winning trades and avoid losses.

Below is analysis of my trades from July 9, 2012 - July 13, 2012. I had a 7 out of 11 success rate, with one open position that I am currently up 8% on. Details at the bottom of this page.

Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AMPE) - The week began when I bought a small position in AMPE at $5.25 right after the open on Monday, July 9, 2012. I waited to long for AMPE to break out and I ended up getting stopped out at $5.06.

Vringo (VRNG) - Vringo (VRNG) was a stock I had bought the previous Friday to hold over the weekend. After purchasing the stock at $3.71, I sold VRNG Monday morning at $3.75. This was a stock I wish I didn't sell because shares later hit $4.20 a few days later. Oh well!

Patriot Coal (PCX) - I always thought there was a chance PCX could go bankrupt so I kept tight stops on my PCX trading positions over the last four weeks. My $2.05 buy filled early Monday morning and I didn't like how the stock failed to break out. Large sell order after large sell order kept showing up on PCX level 2. I was stopped out at $1.99. PCX filed for bankruptcy later that night.

Somaxon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (SOMX) - Somaxon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (SOMX) completed my series of failed trades on Monday. I bought a very small position at $0.365, the stock hit $0.38, and then dropped off a cliff. I was forced to sell at $0.304 and eat my loss. With penny stocks, I usually don't take a large position due to the fear of the stock tanking. I ended up getting this loss back on my next two trades.

Central European Distribution Corp. (CEDC) - I bought CEDC at $3.70 on Monday afternoon, sold a short time later at $3.88.

Apple (AAPL) - Apple (AAPL) was very strong last week until it topped out at $620. On Monday, I bought a decent position in AAPL at $613.50 right before the close. On July 10, 2012, I sold AAPL at $619.67 at the open.

Mako Surgical (MAKO) - I bought MAKO at $15.03 on Tuesday, was stopped out at $14.58 that same day.

Sunshine Heart (SSH) - Sunshine Heart (SSH) was one of the top momentum stocks last week and provided many winning trades. I bought SSH at $13.58 on Tuesday and ended up selling that same day at $13.90.

Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc. (OREX) - I bought OREX stock at $6.37 in pre market on Wednesday after bullish news came out. I then sold Orexigen Therapeutics, Inc. (OREX) at $6.55 after the open.

Sunshine Heart (SSH) - I placed a buy order on SSH in pre market on Thursday and was filled at $10.35. After the open, the stock began to break out and I ended up selling at $11.70.

Caterpillar (CAT) - I fought with Caterpillar (CAT) stock for two days, buying it at $79.80 on Wednesday, and then selling out on Friday at $80.13 for a minor gain. I'd like to buy CAT back at some point so I am watching the stock closely.

IsoRay, Inc. (ISR) - At 3pm on Friday, I bought IsoRay, Inc. (ISR) at $1.35. The stock closed at $1.47 and hit $1.52 in after hours. I am going to be doing some analysis for group members over the weekend.

While I got off to a bad start on Monday, I ended the week with a bang. I am excited for the rest of July due to earnings season.

We will be back at it in the Stock Picks Group on Monday -
