This is meant to be daily, weekday, post (when I can), of 5 to 6 stock symbols that caught my eye, typically between 9 and 9:30 am, on the CNBC scrolling ticker. Basically random. Just symbols that jumped out at me — either because of their gains for the day, their attractive stock price or JUST because the name looked interesting. In general names that were unfamiliar to me — though it could be a symbol, e.g., ‘S’, that might have piqued my interest this time around. These are stocks I plan to check to check, if I get the time (using ‘MarketWatch.com’), during the day. Sharing with you for the heck of it — incase it MIGHT help at least one of you. Of late people keep on asking me about investing (as IF I know what I am doing). This will also help me with that. I can just point them to these posts. No guarantees, warranties, promises, recommendations or anything like that. 99.6% of the time these stocks catch my eye because I know NADA about them.

Today, FitBit (FIT) a company that we are vastly familiar with, given that we were early product customers in 2011, had their IPO. We were NOT impressed with the product, and I actually TOSSED mine in the garbage, but we have to say, that at least in 2012, their customer support and PR were outstanding. They sent my wife a number of FREE FitBits to try and placate her. I was impressed. No Fidelity, given my pitiful assets, did NOT give me any IPO allocation. C’est la vie. I will not buy it at $30. I might, for the heck of it, purely to TRADE (as opposed to going long), might by some in the next few days IF the price gets to $28 or below.

No rhyme or reason. Just a few RANDOM stock symbols that caught my eye — either because of their gains for the day, their attractive stock price or JUST because the name looked interesting. Basically names that were unfamiliar to me. I plan to check them when I have time. 

As I often say I ‘listen’ (much more than watch) CNBC first thing in the morning from 8:20 to 9 am. Then I watch it, sporadically, while I am brushing my teeth etc. — before and after my run. I jot down symbols that catch my eye.

Occurred to me that I should just SHARE them with you. 99% I don’t have the money to do anything about such stock. Just study them and wish I had the money to trade. But some of you may benefit and that is good.
