A Note About My Stock "Recommendations"

It occurred to me that some of my posts about individual stocks read like formal recommendations to buy or sell. I aim to be as accurate as possible with the information I present. My conclusions based on that information, however, should be scrutinized closely and with great suspicion. So, for example, if I say something like, "the stock will go higher because of x," consider x to be true but form your own opinion on how x will affect the stock and whether x is even relevant.

While I'm positive on some stocks and bearish on others, I only trade a small fraction of them. If you want to buy the stuff I buy, and sell the stuff I sell, (and lose money with me) all the power to you. I hope you make money. But remember, all investment decisions are your own. Take all stock advice--from everyone!--with a grain of salt.
