Last week, I bought MMM, IF, and SCUR on May 23, 2008.
I sold MMM this week, making around 0.5%.
SCUR was much better. I sold today, making a 15% gain in less than a week (May 23, 2007 to May 29, 2008).
IF is basically flat so far. No worries--that is a long term hold.
So here is my track record thus far in terms of round-trips:
MMM = 0.5% (less than seven calendar days)
SCUR = 15% (less than seven calendar days)
IF = (bought on May 23, 2008--not sold yet)
Keep in mind, most of these trades were in a Roth IRA, so I won't pay taxes on the transactions until I withdraw the money in my (hopefully) old age. My trades will not generally incorporate any tax analysis.
