Anyone have stock picks they feel are strong plays right now?
If so, post and state why they're strong iyo.
Thought this could be an interesting thread.
I'm completely and utterly out of the market right now. Granted, there is money to be made on the short term, but not for us long term fellas. Cash is king as far as Im concerned...at least until I see something positive in regards to the economy de-leveraging.
“Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds. I have always kept an open mind, a flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of the intelligent search for truth.” - Malcolm X
I'm currently invested in an airline efficiency technology corporation called Aisystems (or ASYI). I seem them as a solid pickup right now for relatively quick profits, they're a cheap stock too (trading right now under 30 cents). I'll probably sell sometime in the summer of next year, unless they come through on some of their hype. Could be a good short term or long term hold.
Here's some info
I bought the stock around the time the company went public at a price significantly higher than it is now. And I'll stand by this statement, if one bought ASYI right now at 26 cents they'll make 50 cents on the dollar within a month. All my equity is tied up in this stock right now (which I should have sold when it was back up at .60, and carpet bagged a few weeks ago at 18), but I'm not nervous at all that I won't make my money back.

Oh and if BYU football ever goes public, I'm definitely buying that.

My sentiments exactly. Klaus Kleinfeld can't stay away from corruption allegations. He had problems at Seimens and Alcoa has been charged with bribery, among other things.
