Stopped out of Natural Gas Services

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, September 8, 2008

I stopped myself out of my remaining holdings in Natural Gas Services (NGS) today. This is a stock that performed pretty well on the demand for equipment from the various burgeoning natural gas shale plays, but it remains premium priced and I’m not as confident as I would like to be in their competitive positioning. So I let my shares go when they dropped below $20, I no longer own any shares but will be keeping an eye on the company for the future (stopped out at $19.72, a loss of about 30%).

Personal Capital is an advertiser with Stock Gumshoe, but Travis also uses it every day for his personal accounts and finds it invaluable. Here's what he said: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and suggest ways to manage risk or improve returns. It's free, I think their free tools are great, and I think it's worth checking out -- you can do so here.
