Jonock made eight moves on May 12; seven of them Buys and one Sell.
One of those Buy calls was for DryShips (DRYS). "All of the dry bulk shippers will have all the business they can handle until China gets its fleet of ships on the waves," wrote Jonock. "Then it will be time to re-evaluate."
Other Buys include Marathon Oil (MRO), which this player expects will double as oil continues to move higher. Bristol Myers Squibb (BMY) was another Buy since it has "cash and good product sales." Jonock believes that BMY will "grow organically and through M&S."
The one Sell call this player made was on Starbucks (SBUX)."The `designer coffee' will fall by the wayside when gasoline costs a `sawbuck' a gallon," according to the player.
