A Nice Jump by HERO

This morning we woke up to some welcome news on possitive Q1 earnings for Hercules Offshore Inc. (HERO).
On March 13, 2007; just over 6 weeks ago, HERO emerged as a possible bargain at 26.87. Today it is trading at about 32.10, a 19.46% return in a very short period of time.
It may be wise to cash in on some profits at this time.

Patience Ran Out for MHO

On 8/7/06 I chose M I Homes Inc. (MHO) at 35.04... it's obvious that I held it for too long and missed the "dead cat bounce". In early December '06 it reached a price in the high 38's; from that time, it's been on a downward spiral without any significant support and nearing 4 year lows.
Taking a 26.6% loss, I have to bail out of this one at 25.73, don't see too many possitive signs for the immediate future. It may take the housing industry anywhere from 1 to 2 years to recover.
