Does anyone have any thoughts on SWIR and why their stock has gone down so much? Every article I read is positive and promising and was considering buying. Being a beginner and not understanding all the vocabulary would also be interested in any books that someone would recomend.

I would not be in a hurry to buy SWIR. Like trying to catch a falling knife. Let’s see where it bottoms out at.

I Bought Swir at it’s height, now sold half for a real loss; but Motley Fool still feels it is a long term winner, but timing was not good; when a stock that has highe PE; or no earnings; it can fall quickly if out of favor. I will hold my half of my investment, because I actually like the stock, but falling knives can hurt.

I have the same question about SWIR. I bought the stock several weeks ago after reading the Motley Fool pitch, and the price has been dropping ever since I purchased it. As a new investor, I’m not sure if I should “hold” or “fold.”

Team,
$SWIR was one of my regret stocks last year. Had a large position for a long time at $17 but lost my patience and sold last Aug for a small gain. Missed the run up. MF has been high on the company for a long time. It certainly has great potential. MF is all about holding long term and I wish I had. Last May they were predicting a huge future but it won’t be overnight. I have kept my eye on it ever since. If one believes in the company as an investor probably better just to be patient and hold. If one is all about quick gains with a trader mentality might want to move on. I own no shares currently.

Like Tom, I also sold my large position right before the run up. SWIR happens to be one of my favorite technology stocks but I’ve so far refused to buy back in as I’m still feeling salty over my bad exit. M2M technology may lead the company to great heights but it definitely won’t happen over night. SWIR has lots of room to grow and long term patience is likely rewarded.

Om,
$SWIR. I agree $25 would be a superb entry point. Maybe even $27. Like Nic I to am a little hesitant to buy back in. MF has also been talking up $XOOM lately which I am also keeping my eye on. I currently have no positions in $XOOM or $SWIR.

I’m a newbie to stock/options and find all these newsletters from motley fool, zacks. Money morning etc.. Confusing to say least. Did any of these forecast a real winner in the past? Or are they just cluttering up the inbox- are they worth even reading?? Thx

Lynn,
Well I belong to MF. Their investment strategy is certainly long term (five years or more). You can see (if you are a member) their performance metrics. I made money with both SWIR and WETF (two of their picks) but got impatient and missed the big run up for both. They certainly are unconcerned about loss of share value short and near term for their picks. They were really pumping $SWIR (for example) when it was close to $27 in Dec 13 and naturally many who bought in at that level were upset when it fell pretty quickly to around $18 in a few months. I didn’t pull the trigger until it hit around $17 and I sold my shares literally days before the run up which almost hit $50. I enjoy their basic service but some of their newsletters pumping their other programs can be annoying at times. . But yes MF has certainly picked numerous winners over the years but like any investment site they have also had a few big misses. Stock Gumshoe has been far and away my best investment.

SWIR MORE THAN DOUBLED THIS PAST YEAR! BE VERY CAUTIOUS WHEN CONTEMPLATING A BUY AFTER SUCH A BIG GAIN!

Thanks for your reply Thomas.. Of all the newsletters/touts I have read , MF seems to me to be the most interesting. I don’t believe the others. ! I like swir simply because it makes sense (their product line) for Internet of things trend. None of the newsletters from MF, Money Morning, Investor Business Daily, Cramer etc…..seem have consensus on one particular stock. If a stock is a true winner should they all not be on the same radar…. Having said that I still like MF but would rather more short term approach if there is a real one out there somewhere. Lynn.

Lynn,
Well a few companies most seem positive on are APPL and GOOGL. For me I like to invest in emerging companies under $20 which have potential for share value increase. Of course it cuts both ways and many of those companies carry a very high amount of risk. I invested previously in SWIR at around $17 because it had almost no debt and seemed poised for a nice run which eventually did occur. I also enjoy investing in emerging Biotechs but those carry even more risk and as you probably know by now we have a lively group over on whatever is the most current Dr. KSS article. Currently: “On Cisco, Chang, & Charlie”.

I agree that M2M will be a huge market, and I am long $SWIR, getting in just above $28. It dropped to the low $23’s and has made a strong bounce up to $27 today. I bought it for the low PEG and exposure to M2M, but my biggest concern is the slim margins (around 2-3%). I’d be interested to hear from others who have evaluated the company to hear your conclusions. Does it really have the potential that people like MF make it out to have?
