Hello Readers,

It has now been at least six months since we started joining the gloom and doom crowd, and, frankly, because of the Fed flooding the universe with funny money, we thought that soon a light would appear at the end of the black hole. Then, an eerie thing happened on the way to the hoped-for recovery. Energy and commodity prices have soared because of the Fed’s rush to bail out the wealthy; a few Newsletters ago, we called it welfare for Wall Street, or something along those lines. The best thing the Fed can now do is to do simply nothing and let the markets finally run their course. The more they interfere, the longer the pain continues. We would have preferred to have seen a cataclysmic sell-off because that would have signaled the end to the catharsis. We are navigating unchartered waters, but the bottom-fishing could be good.

Hello Readers,

Since the last Newsletter, we closed another position, for a nice gain.

BOOTS & COOTS (9/20/07). Closed position 4/8/08 at $1.92 for a 60% GAIN.

Ever since we picked it, Boots & Coots stock has made steady upside progress and then probably got a nice push due to a upbeat research report from RedChip. Yes, WEL could possibly go higher, but, for now, we’ll take the small victories and the 60% gain.

Looks as if the end-of-March early-April gave us the classic rally in a bear market, a/k/a a head-fake. The positive was that at least there was a rally, proof of alien life forms. During the last five to seven months, we have been very negative on the markets, as most of you know, however, we cannot help but feel that we are nearing the end of the carnage. Yes, there will be more pain because earnings reports will be less than rosy, and let’s not forget about the credit crisis, which will continue for some time, but, as we said in the last Newsletter, the Fed has our backs. Overall, our Current Portfolio is still stagnant, but there are now a few signs of breathing. And yes, the operative phrase is still “bottom fish”.

Hello Readers,

Since the last Newsletter we closed two positions, one for a nice gain and two for losses.

NEUROGEN (2/5/08). Closed position 3/20/08 at $3.40 for a 70% GAIN.

WJ COMMUNICATIONS (12/5/06). Closed position 3/20/08 at 95 cents for a 52% LOSS.

CYTOGEN (3/20/06). Closed position 3/20/08 at 57 cents for a 83% LOSS. At the time we closed it, we had no clue as to why Neurogen soared almost $1.25 in a day, and, in this market, why ask questions; someone knew something or thought they did. The deal between TriQuint and WJ Communications looks as if it will go through at $1.00 a share, so, why hang around for the extra nickel? Ditto for Cytogen, which is being bought by EUSA Pharma.

Once again, our Current Portfolio remains pretty much the same as it did several weeks ago, and several months ago. As we said in the last Newsletter, the more that the Fed and the government “help” things the more prolonged will be the pain. Actually, if one looks closely, both in appearance and in recent actions, George Bush is transforming into LBJ and Ben Bernanke is resembling Lenin. We now have nearly complete socialism of the markets. The rich masses have been saved from themselves! The best thing the Fed/Treasury could do is to allow the other types of Bear Stearns to fold; after all, they abetted this mess. Then, instead of lower interest rates, which are near zero once again, rates should be raised and that move would strengthen the dollar and maybe ease commodity prices.

So, we continue to say “bottom fish”, but, remember, think long-term. The Fed has your back.

Hello Readers,

Back in January, we said that our Current Portfolio was the worst it has ever looked and that the markets were the ugliest we have seen since the 1980s. Scratch that. This is now the worse and the ugliest. Yes, the Fed is acting to improve the liquidity situation, a situation that it helped to create, but there is now much shattered confidence, nose-bleed high oil prices, and, boy, aren’t we all excited about the next President! As we alluded in the last Newsletter, it would probably be better to let the markets capitulate rather than to have this death by a thousand knives. Sure, the Treasury, the Fed, and other regulators/agencies/whatever mean well, but their current actions are just delaying, or dragging out, the recession, thereby making things worse.

Now despite this rosy picture we just painted, we still feel that some ‘bottom fishing’ may be in order. Just don’t bait the rod with overly expensive flies and have some patience.

Here are the headlines since the last Newsletter about companies in the Current Portfolio. Dates in parentheses are when we first recommended them.

NETSOL TECHNOLOGIES, INC. & ACTIVIDENTITY CORPORATION

Hello Readers,

Thanks to the February 29 nosedive, the markets are pretty much at the same place they were a few weeks ago, which, for some, is considered a mini-triumph. We would have preferred a major sell-off, the kind that leaves us breathing into a paper bag. We could have finally said the bottom is here and that we are officially in a recession (psssst, we really are). Then, the only guesswork would have been when does the market begin its rebound. Instead, we must endure more waterboarding while the geniuses figure out what to screw up next. Where is J.P. Morgan? Remember 1907?

Overall, our Current Portfolio looks about the same as it did in mid-February, which isn’t good; but, as we have been saying for the last few months, it’s going to take a while to repair all of the damage. And, yes, we still feel this may be a good time to go bottom fishing.

Hello Readers,

Since the last Newsletter, we closed two positions, our first for 2008.

Alphatec Holdings (6/20/07). Closed position 2/14/08 at $6.22 for a 73% GAIN.

American Micro Circuits (11/20/04). Closed position 2/13/08 at $8.03 for 42% LOSS.

Ever since we picked it last June, Alphatec Holdings has done nothing but virtually go up, which, in this market, seems like a major feat; helping to fan the flames, lately, was recent news that ATEC acquired a exclusive worldwide license for what it calls “dynamic” anterior cervical plate technology. A few months back, we said we would soon close American Micro Circuits because of its 1 for 4 reverse stock split, and these seldom benefit current shareholders.

Overall, the last week or so has seen a slight break from the carnage in the markets, but we are still leery; read our last five or six Newsletters to understand our apprehensions. Small stocks have mostly remained in place and our own Current Portfolio is still half blown apart, although not as badly as a month ago. Much technical damage has been done to small stocks and it will take time to repair, once the downturn is over, which, as we recently said, may be sooner rather than later. Time to bottom fish?

Hello Readers,

We have good news and bad news. The good news is that our Current Portfolio is pretty the same as it was a few weeks ago, although there have been some improvements. That’s also the bad news. Many of our picks have had upbeat news announcements only to see their stock prices mark time or even drop a little; of course, this has been the norm for the last several months (please see our Newsletters during that time). But this isn’t how it should be happening. Didn’t the Fed ride to the rescue? Isn’t Congress going to turn on the money spigot even more? Shouldn’t the markets be soaring, especially small stocks? Well, the markets did respond to the rate cuts, albeit tepidly, and before small stocks can refuel, their bigger brothers and sisters, namely the big caps and mid caps will need to get much healthier.

During the last part of January, the market showed it still had a pulse. However, there is a sense that we still have not seen the bottom of this, just yet. We now feel it will come sooner rather than later. Yes, it may be a good time to bottom fish, but long-term thinking may be in order.
