You have been watching this stock for weeks. It is setting up exactly as expected and you check it every day with eager anticipation of the stock finally falling into your strike zone. Finally that day comes and you decide that now is a good time to enter the position but how do you actually go about pulling the trigger? Is it just a roll of the dice in terms of timing and price?

Entering a position with market orders is a mistake that amateur investors make all to often. This is a mistake that I learned to avoid after watching it cost me money time and time again. Because of the fact that I am a technical trader, I expect stocks to bounce off (or at least hold) certain resistance levels. This was the case with FIZ as I mentioned in my last post. What I want to address now is how I went about entering that position and how this simple technique can save you time and time again.

This weekend I went searching for an opportunity in the NonCyclical/Beverages Non Alcoholic (.CBN) sector as it has seen plenty of institutional attention this year. Out of the 28 stocks in the sector, only one set up both technically and fundamentally for me. That company is National Beverage Corp and right now it provides a low risk entry point with a risk reward ration of almost 4 to 1.

National Beverage Corp (AMEX: FIZ) describes itself as a unique beverage company that produces energy drinks and powders, soft drinks, bottled waters, juices and juice products. FIZ highly recognized for a line of popular brands including Shasta, Faygo, Ritz, Everfresh, Mr. Pure, LaCroix, Rip It and PowerBlast™.

Cascades_Golf_Homestead2006.jpg

Today I returned home from a much needed vacation. I was lucky enough to get away to a place called "The Homestead". Founded in 1766 (10-years before our country was even founded and slightly before my time), the Homestead sits deep in the mountains of Hot Springs, Virginia. It is a breath-taking 5 star estate that offers an amazing array of activities, food and history. The trip was just fabulous and I got a chance to play the 48th ranked golf course in the world called "The Cascades", which is owned by the Homestead. It was just under $250/person to step out onto the course and an extra $40 for the caddie but worth every penny. Anyways, it was a great time and I am glad to be back. Now that I am back, I wanted to write a post about other financial webstops that both Kiplinger's magazine and myself find very helpful.
