Dykstra: Hunt for Bargains

I had my order filled with Parker Hannifin (PH - Get Report) at $7.50 while the stock traded at $38. It was my Oct. 20 pick and has already crossed the finish line for a $1,000 victory. Halliburton (HAL - Get Report) is another example as I bought my options at $8.70 when the stock was at $18. Again, it filled and sold on the same day (Oct. 17) for a quick $1,000 win.

Let's go down the line. Even though Microsoft (MSFT - Get Report) traded at $25, I was able to purchase contracts at $6.70, a huge discount. My pick on Oct. 8, Microsoft brought home a $1,000 win in just three days.

I bought Cisco (CSCO - Get Report) at $8.20 while its stock traded at $17. On Oct. 10, it filled and sold for a $1,000 win. Texas Instruments (TXN - Get Report), Deere (DE - Get Report), Chesapeake (CHK - Get Report), The Shaw Group (SHG - Get Report) and Caterpillar (CAT - Get Report) are some of the other recent bargains I found that have turned into wins.

A keen sense for bargains and winners has helped Gillick's Phillies get to the World Series. For me, it has helped me to go 80-0 and earn more than $200,000 in wins since I began Nails on the Numbers in March.
