Top 10 Stock Picks For 2011 "go 4 cheap-bucks 2 reap"


Here are BUCKzology's TOP TEN STOCK PICKS FOR 2011 & there are four rules I follow when trading on-line or on paper trades...First, pick stocks under $10 a share; this allows you to purchase a substantial number of stocks at an affordable price with upside potential where small moves can translate into big profit.

Second, remove your ego from the equation every time you place a trade. The stock market doesn't respond well to an ego. When trading stocks online, you need veins of ice and hell with a sense of humor thrown in for good measure. Just laugh it off and relax when you make a bad trade. The markets will force it to happen, so cut your losses and move on to your next trade.

Third, read as much as you can and study every successful trader you can find. This means going to the library and reading up constantly on every single great trader and getting all the information in your head as possible. I spent the first couple months trading doing just this before placing a single trade, and even to this day still read up on it to improve my knowledge of the stock exchange.

Fourth, develop a great system/strategy to trade on. This can be in the form of a newsletter, a series of videos, trading indicators and signals, or a mentor; form some combination of each. When trading stocks online, you need a specific game plan in order to take home profits. Lacking one pretty much guarantees failure. A good strategy relies on good insight!


According to financial reporter Robert Holmes of "The Street", he states: "The following 10 U.S. stocks trade at less than $5 and have garnered the most "buy" ratings from analysts, which could lead to high returns over the next 12 months."

  1. This was kind of a bizarre year for the mortgage market. In the first half of the year, you had a decent number of home sales keeping mortgages for purchases stable, thanks to the home buyer credit. In the second half of the year, that changed as demand crumbled when the credit was withdrawn. At the same time, you had very low mortgage interest rates throughout much of the year cause a mini-refinancing boom. 2011 will look very different, as the housing demand continues to struggle and mortgage interest rates have begun rising.
