Track Record: Executive Lounge

The following methodology was used for the scorecard for Normandy Research Executive Lounge.

At the least expensive online brokerages, a zero premium trade with 10 pairs of options traded or pairs traded, would cost investors roughly $15 to initiate. Using this as the base cost, we’ve calculated the profits on the trades below, knowing that either more or less pairs traded will change the P/L results dramatically.

It is important to note that Normandy Research did not include costs to close the trades. Sometimes these trades were closed at expiry (without commissions), while others were closed out early.

For the sake of uniformity, we’ve left closing commissions out of the calculation altogether. In a worst case scenario, investors had to shell out another $15 to close before expiry. All percentages are calculated as honestly as possible, but timing and execution must be assumed in order to offer a successful glimpse into our premium newsletter track record.

2/19/2014 EVI Right now EnviroStar, Inc. is set up to be a stock that is an up-and-coming company that are flat-out performing and profitable. It could be a stock with nice gains ahead if you are patient enough to stay the course. From where shares are sitting, the price is a bargain and has some solid support at the $3 level should the selling continue.
02/17/2014 Wall Street Elite recommends closing the last two week’s FNV and AAPL trades.
02/10/2014 Wall Street Elite recommends readers consider the following trade idea – buying the AAPL May 550 CALL for $14.70 and selling five (5) AAPL Feb 480 PUTS for $1.03 each, for a total credit of $5.15. Total cost for the trade is $9.55. $14.70//$1.03 Closed trade for $1,222 clear profit. 2/17/2014 Clear profit of $1.222
2/05/2014 FSPM This issue was one of two plays that appeared primed to benefit from the capital rush into marijuana stocks that accompanied Colorado’s legalization of the substance in January, and plans afoot in many other states to pass similar legislation. As hoped, FSPM shares raced all the way to and through the $8 mark after we wrote about the stock in early January when it was trading at $2.90 per share. Currently sitting at about $6 per share, I would reduce my position here by half, take the 100% return, and hold on to the rest in anticipation of ongoing sector strength.
2/05/2014 EDXC The second of two “pot stocks” we profiled in January, this company’s shares have also seen a nice jump from about $0.14 each, to a recent trading print of $0.21. I like the nice steady rise in EDXC’s price, along with the fact that the company is well-positioned geographically to benefit from the Colorado law change. Until the sector shows signs of buyer’s exhaustion, I expect these shares to continue to grind their way higher. If you took a position in this one, I recommend leaving it open.
2/05/2014 DLHC This Christmas Eve pick from December truly was a gift if you chose to play it. Shares quickly ripped from the $1.60 – $1.70 channel they occupied when we issued an alert on this company as a potential breakout candidate, and that’s exactly what happened. Within two weeks DLHC had established a series of new 52-week highs, quickly pushing up and through 100% gains to a $3.50 top. Market conditions and profit-taking have since conspired to push this issue back down to about $2.50, but I would keep my position open pending the market’s reaction to the company’s earnings report set for the end of the week. If those results are good, I expect DLHC to eventually take out new 52s.
2/05/2014 EMMS
(UPDATE)
This bread and butter play in the radio broadcasting industry remained stuck in neutral for several weeks, hovering around our entry point of $2.30 per share in September, rarely budging more than a few pennies a day either up or down. Finally, buying interest increased dramatically at the end of 2013, pushing shares back through the $3 level. Although I still like this company as a long-term hold, market conditions are such that it’s a good time to cash out, with the stock still holding at about $2.80 per share—good for a nice gain of over 20%.
2/05/2014 III
(UPDATE)
Also recommended in the summer of 2013 when shares were trading at $2.50, the stock has simply headed north, recently touching a new 52-week top of $5.50 per share. With the issue continuing to show solid relative strength, and still trading near that 52-week top, my instinct is to let this one ride. That said, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, so if you’ve had the courage to hold this 125% gainer since the summer, now is a good time to book those profits and monitor III for a fresh entry position on any significant price pullback—if there is one.
2/05/2014 OCTX
(UPDATE)
Like EMMS, shares of this issue have traded in a relatively narrow range, but below the price the stock was trading at the time of our recommendation— $6.75 per share. Usually under volatile market conditions like the ones we’re currently experience, I would suggest eliminating risk and cutting losses in a stock like this, which is now at $6.10 per share. Instead, however, given that the company just closed a private placement of 750,000 shares, and updated their plans to proceed with the launch of their conventional drilling plans, my recommendation is to stay the course for now. That said, the risk-averse trader/investor should probably turn to other less speculative plays.
2/05/2014 WTER
(UPDATE)
From almost the time we highlighted this company trading on the OTC exchange at $0.50, shares sprung a leak, slipping all the way down to a 52-week bottom of $0.17, before appearing to stabilize at the $0.21 level. Despite the company’s steady stream of new distribution agreements for its flagship product, sellers still appear to be in control of this one. That said, given that it appears to have scraped bottom, I’d hang on in hopes of the company posting solid revenues at some point down the road.

For all but the lunatic fringe we say take your money, for the second time, this week. Sell one Nov $8 CALL for $0.53 for every 100 shares you buy. With ACI now changing hands at $7.62, your adjusted cost base for the trade is just $7.09. If it’s called away, your take is slightly less than 13% for one month’s work. Wall Street Elite recommends selling the ACI $8 Nov CALLS and buying the stock. One CALL sold for every 100 shares purchased. We see a high likelihood
that our shares will be
called away on Friday.
As our adjusted cost
base for the trade was
$5.65, we’ll realize a
nice profit, or 24%,
for three months work.

2/21/2011 Wall Street Elite recommends the simultaneous purchase of XLY June 36 PUTS for $0.60 and the sale of IYZ May 23 PUTS in equal numbers. $0.60 We prefer to close out here and reinstate the trade if we start to see some movement in the weeks ahead. The XLY June 26 PUTS now trade for $0.50 and the IYZ May 23 PUTS are fetching $0.24. Selling the former and buying back the latter will score $26 per pair traded.

The following methodology was used for the scorecard for Normandy Research Executive Lounge.

At the least expensive online brokerages, a zero premium trade with 10 pairs of options traded or pairs traded, would cost investors roughly $15 to initiate. Using this as the base cost, we’ve calculated the profits on the trades below, knowing that either more or less pairs traded will change the P/L results dramatically.

It is important to note that Normandy Research did not include costs to close the trades. Sometimes these trades were closed at expiry (without commissions), while others were closed out early.

For the sake of uniformity, we’ve left closing commissions out of the calculation altogether. In a worst case scenario, investors had to shell out another $15 to close before expiry. All percentages are calculated as honestly as possible, but timing and execution must be assumed in order to offer a successful glimpse into our premium newsletter track record.
