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 October 15, 2012 - October 19, 2012 - I had a 6 out of 11 success rate with a half open position in Apple (AAPL) into the weekend

Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (SRPT) - I bought Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (SRPT) on Monday at $26.05 for my first trade of the week.  About 15 minutes later I was able to sell the stock at $26.55 for a nice gain.

Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) - I tried to catch the bottom on Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) at $64.34 on Monday and while I was successful, I sold to early at $64.54.

Identive Group, Inc. (INVE) - Identive Group, Inc. (INVE) released positive news on Tuesday which caused the stock to pop.  I bought small position at $1.26 and sold at $1.31.

CSX Corp. (CSX) - I bought CSX Corp. (CSX) at an average of $22.16 in after hours on Tuesday after the company released earnings.  I decided to cut my losses at the open on Wednesday at $21.20.

Manhattan Associates, Inc. (MANH) - Manhattan Associates, Inc. (MANH) beat and raised on Tuesday night so I bought the stock in after hours at $63.50.  I sold MANH on Wednesday at $64.11 for a nice gain.

Identive Group, Inc. (INVE) - I held a full but small position in INVE with a $1.32 average on Tuesday and was stopped out Wednesday morning at $1.23.  This was one of my poorer trades of the week because I could have sold several times around $1.31 on Tuesday but thought it would break out higher.

Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (MLNX) - Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. (MLNX) reported an earnings and revenue beat in after hours on Wednesday so I decided to buy the stock at $98.03.  About 10 minutes later I was stopped out for a minor loss due to the tiny position that I took.  About 30 minutes later, the company issued guidance which was weak and the stock dropped to $69.

Select Comfort Corporation (SCSS) - I bought a 50% position in Select Comfort Corporation (SCSS) in after hours on Wednesday at $32 after the company released earnings.  I sold these shares about 30 minutes later at $32.85 for a nice gain but this was wiped out by next trade.

Select Comfort Corporation (SCSS) - Before I made the above trade, I bought a 50% position in SCSS at $33.50, made the above trade, and then bought back at $31.50 for an average of $32.50.  I was stopped out at the open on Thursday at $29.80.  I could have sold the $33.50 in after hours for a slight loss several times but decided to keep holding which is where I made the mistake.

Apple (AAPL) - I bought Apple (AAPL) Thursday morning at $638.31 but then sold at $636.50 after I saw the Google (GOOG) earnings release hit the wires.

Riverbed Technology, Inc. (RVBD) - I bought Riverbed Technology, Inc. (RVBD) in after hours on Thursday at $22.60 due to the strong earnings release.  I sold a short time later at $23.07 for a nice gain.
