Starbucks a Buy?

If you are a contrarian, then you may want to look at Starbucks, who in my opinion, will see a comeback next year if the economy improves. I believe it will, how about you?

Auto Wholesale Stock Pick

Bob, over at Stock Picks Bob's Advice likes LKQ CORP a maker of wholesale auto parts. He thinks that they have had a good quarter that beat the streets, and its p/e and PEG is better than most. I think one of the most important aspects is that there are a lot of shares out short. He assumes that there will be buying demand down the road, and I have to agree. The stock is worth taking a good look at.

Acusphere - Good micro cap play?

ACUS:Acusphere, Inc. has been a strange story. . Wall Street doesn't think the company's drug Imagify is going to get approved. Yet, doctors are excited about the drug, and think it will be used as soon as it is approved...In the meantime, cash burn is a concern and management is going to have to figure out how to raise money yet again in 2008. So who's right? The stock is currently under $1.50 a share. Is it time for a speculative play?

Syntax-Brillian Goes Big with a Olevia 65-inch LCoS HDTV

Syntax-Brillian(BRLC) is going to be unveiling it's 65″ high-def television next month at the CEDIA Expo in Denver. The LCoS television works similar to DLP except it uses liquid crystals instead of reflective mirrors to produce the picture. This tech will allow for higher resolution images than from LCD or plasma, and at a lower cost to the manufacture.

I've been following this company for a while. They are very popular because of the lower prices on LCD's they offer. I think that at current price it may be a good buy. I would wait for somewhere around $6 to pull the trigger however. If this new television takes off, as I think it will, investors will be rewarded.

Oil Sands Stock

BQI has been looking pretty good lately under $4. I'm looking for some more weakness before buying however. I think this company has a lot of potential and worth at least watching.

Palatin Looking Up

Palatin Technologies is looking up on news that AstraZeneca (AZN) has signed an obesity drug deal with Palatin Technologies (PTN). The deal could earn Palatin up to $300 million. Palatin is also developing an inhaled drug for sexual dysfunction for men and women. I mentioned this company a while back and I still feel strongly about this stock.

Small Oil Sands Stock

Oilsands Quest Inc. (AMEX: BQI), has begun drilling in northwest Saskatchewan, right next door to oil sands heavy Alberta. As a matter of fact where they are drilling is on the same extention of the oil bearing sands that are in Alberta. How much oil is there? Time will tell, but company insiders were buying up the stock recently. Remember to do your due diligence. but I would look at buying below $4.75.

Mastercard still going strong

Mastercard(MA) is still strong after weeks of being above $90 a share. I bought this shortly after ipo at around $45 a share. Speculation among message boards is that it is heading to $150 a share. I have to say that this was a stock pick of mine from 2006 and is a 2007 stock pick as well. Are shares going to split? Time will tell.

Stock Market Correction Coming

So say Marc Faber, who predicted the U.S. stock market crash in 1987, said global assets are poised for a "severe correction'' and it's time to sell. He goes on to say that investors should sell, buy in a panic and hold onto gold and stocks in Vietnam.

How Long will Digg Stay Private?

According to Forbes, Digg has raised another $8.5 million, and will use the money to buy companies and hire more staff. is turning into quite the powerhouse in the internet sector, and I believe will be one of the first social networking sites to go public. Although I can't see that happening until at least next year, they are growing extremely popular.

Google Top Stock Pick for 2007 reports that analyst Safa Rashtchy of Piper Jaffray & Co., has picked Google as it's top pick for 2007. Evidently he likes the way Google has lured more customers to use its products. Google is obviously the 300 pound gorilla in the internet group of stocks. These days, Google would be the only internet stock I would put money into.
