With all of the market's many gyrations over the past couple of weeks, you may have missed some of our contributors' great work, and more importantly, some of their stellar recommendations on which stocks to buy and which ones to avoid.

First, Lenny "Nails" Dykstra continues to add to his wins and the profits he makes for his subscribers to "Nails on the Numbers." Most of you remember Lenny for his legendary baseball career, but since hanging up the cleats a few years ago, he has become a wizard of options trading.
