WSJ Exposure and a Stock Pick

Thanks to Kevin Delaney and the rest of the team at The Wall Street Journal for featuring me yesterday in a front page story about my trading in and views on Google (GOOG). It certainly made for a fun and eventful day, most notably a full inbox and a phone ringing off the hook. If you would like to read the story, it can be accessed through wsj.com in addition to March 2nd’s hard copy. I also have an electronic copy if you aren’t a WSJ online subcriber, so email me if you’d like a copy.

On to the market. I have been pleasantly surprised how well the market is acting so far this year. I am tempted to take some money off the table, but the momentum is clearly strong right now. Hopefully nothing will get in the way of that. What do readers think? Feel free to comment.

As for specific stocks, I would suggest investors take a look at Abercrombie and Fitch (ANF). The stock was down $6 yesterday after weaker-than-expected same store sales for February. A lot of hot money was in the stock, so the decline may have been more than normal. Keep in mind that SSS were still up more than 5% for the month, and February is the second least important month of the year for retailers. The stock looks very cheap down here under $60 per share.
