Stockpickr: Three Short-Squeeze Plays

Stockpickr tip of the day: I'm excited about a brand-new feature on Stockpickr. I keep track of about 200 to 300 blogs for my Daily Blog Watch column on, and now you can see my favorite 100 or so blogs on the Stockpickr Blog Index.

The authors of these blogs are constantly updating throughout the day, and it's difficult sometimes to keep track. Often I want to keep track of only the blog posts related to my portfolio (or a sector-specific portfolio). So now Stockpickr scours the Internet every minute, all day long, reads automatically the top 200 blogs we've fed it, and automatically indexes relevant blog posts for every portfolio and stock page on the site.

For instance, to see all the recent blog posts that mention any stock in Warren Buffett's portfolio, go to his portfolio page and look down the right-hand side. You'll see listed all videos and all blog posts related to the portfolio. Clicking on a link will take you directly to that blog.

And from Stockpickr's main blog search page you can search on "Cramer," for instance, and see all the blog posts related to Cramer since we started indexing.

What's the difference between this and a blog search engine like Technorati or Google Blog Search?

For one thing, we are automatically categorizing based on criteria we've set up instead of blind searching. Second, these results do not include every blog but mostly the blogs we've spent the past year searching out to help put together the Blog Watch column every day. Arguably, they are the best finance and stock blogs out there, but more importantly, the list is constantly changing. If you believe I'm missing any blogs for indexing, please send them to me.

Most importantly, we hope it helps to in making an investment decision easier. All feedback is welcome on this new feature.

Please note that due to factors including low market capitalization and/or insufficient public float, we consider Gaiam, The Greenbrier Cos., LodgeNet Entertainment and Waste Services to be small-cap stocks. You should be aware that such stocks are subject to more risk than stocks of larger companies, including greater volatility, lower liquidity and less publicly available information, and that postings such as this one can have an effect on their stock prices.
