Full-Time Trader, Part-Time Investor. I like to Trade Sm/Med Cap's. Swing/Hold Med+ (in Trending Mkt's). Regardless of one's Time Horizon it's Essential to Develop a System that Adds to Winners while also Taking Profits along the way
Stocks are fluid, trying to go with the flow to make some $$$.
By the time news=hot stock, the party's already over.
If a stock pops big for no reason=it's a trap. Pump and Dump.
99% of the time, rumors are unmerited and buyouts will not occur.
