Make Sure You Take Your Profits On COLM After Earnings Pop

Hello, 10-Minute Millionaires!

I hope you’re having a splendid weekend.

If you’ll recall, just a little under two weeks ago I sent you a trade update video on a few of the free recommendations we’ve been following here in the newsletter – and how they’ve fared over the past few months.

Notably, I suggested you take a third round of profits on Columbia Sportswear Co. (COLM) – after 12% and 14% initial gains, we finally bagged 50% on the third leg of that trade.

Now, if you missed that email – don’t worry – you didn’t miss your chance…

In fact, we’ve just seen a nice little +2% pop in COLM stock after a pleasant, though not unexpected earnings beat, so if you haven’t already, now would be a good time to take that final leg of profits.

Here’s the full update on the stocks in that free watchlist…

COLM – The hits just keep coming – after an exceptional earnings report the stock is up further.

Action to take: Sell your remaining shares at the best available price for up to a 55% gain.

Congratulations on a great trade! If you participated in the trade, please let me know how you did so I can celebrate with you.

VIVO – Our biomedical picks and shovel play is holding steady since the last video.

CCJ – This volatile uranium miner has pushed up to multi-month highs and has pulled back a couple of percent off of those intermediate highs.

RLJ – continues its strong recovery and is a great Real Estate Investment Trust to be invested in for the long haul.

As well, I’ve been reading some comments lately from people who would appreciate transcripts of my videos, and I’ll be working to make that happen in the near future. To start with, I’ve transcribed our recent stock update video – and you can read the whole script right here.

We Bagged 410% On A “Shoot The Moon” Trade – Here’s How We Did It

A quick caveat here! If you don’t like snakes, I’d suggest that you click right through to the second half of the article, where we’ll get into that juicy 410% instead…

But if you don’t mind the slithery beasties, read on – they’ve got a very important lesson to teach us about “shoot the moon” trades, believe it or not.

When I was growing up I had all kinds of different pets.

I started with a standard mutt from the pound that my parents got months before I was born.  That delightful dog was with us until I was 15.  I would tell you her name, but then you could hack half of my online accounts…

Seeing how much I loved the family dog and how well I cared for her, my mom and dad had little problem allowing me to have more and more exotic pets. I tried rodents of several species, but never really liked them too much. I enjoyed reptiles much more.

I helped nurse an Eastern box turtle back to health. I brought lizards of all types home – anoles and skinks were favorites.  My mom even bought me an imported green iguana (not a very good pet!).

But she only did that because she hoped I would not bring home a snake.  She was not a fan.

But when I found a harmless baby Eastern ribbon snake down by my favorite creek, I had to bring it home.  They’re quite attractive (as snakes go) – here’s a picture of an adult:

As a juvenile, mine had whiter stripes.  It was a great pet – since I got it so young, it grew up being handled regularly and really liked it.  I guess the warmth of my hands had a lot to do with that…

It was a lot of fun to feed.  They live around water and feed on fish and frogs.  Mine was so little, (maybe eight inches when I got it) that I could find some small minnows to feed it, but its main diet was earthworms and small insects.

As spring turned to summer, I started to find nightcrawlers (really big cousins of normal earthworms).  They were almost as big around as my snake.  But to my great surprise it didn’t mind one bit – and I learned firsthand how snakes can unhinge their jaws to eat large prey!

My friend Mark didn’t believe me at all.  So when I found another nightcrawler I called Mark to come over.  And what he said next is why I wrote about this memory from decades ago…

“Seeing is believing”, Mark blurted out as Mr. Stripes unhinged his jaw and went to work swallowing his meal.

And so it is with the “shoot for the moon trades” that I described in our last piece.  Scoring trades that make 200%, 300%, 400% – or more – on a routine basis is not just a dream, it’s a reality for members of my elite services. (That “We” in the headline is you, my friends!)

Let’s go behind the scenes and take a look at how it’s done
