Net Current Asset Stocks and Positon Updates

I plan on going through some net current asset stocks over the next few days as I will have some time off. I plan on using the trusty Graham Investor Site and a basic site like either MSN or Yahoo and just screening for great balance sheet strength with light total liabilities to find some stocks net cash and net current assets. I'll post up any interesting finds later this week. Off of the top of my head I had expected Delia's DLIA to be a successful net-net because of the strong brand and potential they had for a turnaround. I mean they are practically in every mall in America. I see this stock is now a sub penny stock trading below $.01 a share. Luckily I had forgotten about it for some time and never took a position.

The net-net Delcath Systems DCTH I posted on recently where I said I wanted to see it even cheaper to its net cash did indeed fall. When I say net cash that is essentially selling for less than the cash on its balance sheet minus all debt. The stock fell as low as $1.09 and has gone as high as $1.50s. I may have missed it as I didn't pull the trigger but this looks like a flag and it could very well drop even lower. I prefer to scale into positions so if I pick up shares around $1 they might just be half of the position.

My long term portfolio is mixed lately.  The Fidelity Emerging Asia Mutual Fund is underperforming the US Markets, however my dollar long position via the ETF UUP which I posted my buy of dollar ETF UUP on Twitter is finally coming around and breaking out again. My Pimco bond fund is  basically flat.

The major US indices look very healthy here and it looks like we are heading for new highs any day here. Even the Russell 2000 looks like it will break out here very soon. The Russell has been the laggard. It's often seen as a key index to the overall market. I may do a post soon on it as it looks like there is a failed signal on the chart forming. Failed signals can often be extremely important. Jack Schwager wrote about them in his books.
