As a newlywed in 2006, the Motley Fool's website convinced me I was capable of investing in the stock market. Now, not only do I manage my own portfolio, I'm able to share what I've learned as a contributor with the Fool. To keep track of my articles, follow me on Twitter

SWIR Outperform

This is a speculative stock pick, as it is a pure play on the internet of things...a still speculative industry. But trading in-line with book value creates a solid opportunity to at least give this company a shot.

Watercooler Post

thequast wrote 4:43 PM

So, I had a bunch of picks in Caps that I wasn't really following and didn't really feel all that strongly about. Originally I was tempted to make tons of picks to get my score up. Well now that my score is in the 90's, I thought it best to scale back and make fewer picks but with stronger bull/bear sentiment from me. I hope it's helpful
