The volatility in this bearish market allows an investor to increase their holding at no cost. This can be done by exchanging one share for another and back again and increasing the numbers in the process. Anyone following the ADI thread will see that I have been doing this by switching back and forth with ADI and AUT for some time. At no cost I have increased my holding in ADI by more than 50% and recovered my initial outlay plus some profit in the process.
To start you need to find another stock with the same interests as one you hold. Calculate relative values and trade the difference in the SP according to those values. Initially I started with ADI and AUT, gave them relative values and trade the highest value one for the lower value one. I have also increased my holding in MCR the same way by trading it with AGM,ZFX, OXR and now OZL. The number of extra shares held makes up for the price fall.
I also traded AOE for BUL. Hasn't been successful yet as BUL is dragging the chain but I live on hope there.
I have been back and forth between TAS and TASO, MOS and MOSO and TEY and TEYO with some success.
I am considering trading my NSL for CAG. My NSL are free carried, my CAG are showing in red ink.
I'm interested in any suggestions for other stocks with relative values and fluctuating prices.
