I’ve discussed falling knives quite a few times in the past on this blog. The whole strategy of course is trying to find stocks that have suffered major declines and could be rebound. The easy part is finding out what caused the big decline but a lot more tricky is trying to determine if that could turn around and what kind of valuation makes sense. Among stocks that I’ve discussed in the recent past are:

Blackberry (BBRY)
Netflix (NFLX)
Best Buy Co Inc. (BBY)

What if I told you that two of those 3 are the 2 best performing stocks in the S&P500 this year? In fact, it’s not even close. And no, of course, Blackberry, the stock that I’ve been bashing for months is one of the two. So who is at the top?

Best Buy (BBY) +190%


Netflix (NFLX) +185%


One of them (NFLX) is much easier for me to understand than the other. Guess which one? Here are a few charts from their more recent earnings numbers…!

    The fact that BBY is on top is just CRAZY!!! I have no idea why that stock keeps going up. I think it could be a tremendous short squeeze…
