Should You Wait On Volume Before Buying A Stock? by Larry Potter
... In years gone buy, live people, making big decisions would make a move to buy stocks, and as they were buying other managers would see the action and they'd buy and so on and so on. Often volume and price appreciation "grew" on each other. But today, it's computers.

Evaluating Stocks: Fundamentals and Technical Analysis by Ray Johns
... In this situation, it would make much more sense to use the recent and historical trends and movements of the stock price to deduce not only the current fair market value of the stock, but where the price "may move" in the future.

What's it Worth - Pricing your Stock Photos by Henry Bateman
... Beware of the old chestnut of “we will be buying a lot more of this type of image in the future, can you do something about the price”. My response to this one is along the lines that I give discounts to regular buyers and a regular buyer is one with a history of 5 or more purchases. To the exposure I will get, just think of the dollars in the bank in the future, argument my response is I have to pay my bills now. I mean who really does the read the photo byline on a wine bottle label?
Home-Based Business Start-Up Costs – How to Keep Them Under Control by Laurie Hayes
... I sold quite a few items to another consultant, but still had shelves stocked with unopened product. For about five years, I didn't have to buy a birthday, wedding or Christmas present because I had a massive amount of untouched gifts in my home office. When I decided to start my coaching business, I was older and wiser, and grateful I made many of my mistakes at an earlier age. I learned from them and knew not to repeat them. I started small. I had a computer, an old, but reliable printer, ...
How to Add Shares to a Profitable Position by Chris Perruna
... I liked the stock and thought the 15 week pattern that preceded my buy was picture perfect (especially since the correction was due after the prior up-trend from the IPO date).

The stock was already under coverage on the MSW Index since May 21, 2005 at $37.20 but I was looking for a break above $39.
