Where do you get wind of the stocks you watch?  From people your know, stock websites, magazines, papers, etc?

I don't use financial Advisors, and I watch Foxnews's Money shows to get a feel for how the sheep are going to think they need to invest.  I use Scottrade as my investment broker.  Something I do is I watch the Market Movers list.  The list has two colums one with the loosers and the one with winners, looser highlighted in red are the ones that have just hit a year low, winners highlighted in green are the winners that just hit a year high.  when a stock hits is year high, this usually means its on the move. I look up the stock to see what its history has been, if the stock hasn't moved that much up yet, I invest.  This worked out pretty well with MAIN.  Sometimes just watching the tics as trades are made you can figure out the types of investors in a given stock.  I watch the volumes of shares tradded as well.  Some factors such as interest rates, and oil will impact the smaller stocks differently than larger companies.  Something else I watch is the Afterhours trading on smaller stocks.  As they can give you an insite on where its going on the following day.  To me its just a game of chess.  Lets take further conversations to the Wallstreet topic.  I will post more there as I find more hot stocks

I checked out that WIZD stock you talked about.  It looks pretty inconsistent, but it does appear to be going up, so pretty good.  I got into SIRI months ago, unfortunately I think SIRI and XMSR are going to have a tough time surviving if they can't get their subscribers up higher.  XM has done alot of promotions ( 6 months free subs for new car buyers )  This is good considering that GM sold a high number of vehicles in the last few months with their employee discount promotion, but the numbers have shown that XM looses customers at a higher rate than SIRI.  One of the biggest concerns I have is how is XM and SIRI going to compete with Internet?  Right now I can use my cell phone ( T-mobile) to get online, and it doesn't eat minutes.  If you look at South Keorea they are able to watch payperview movies from their cell phones.  Its just a matter of time before people start using IP for their radio and video needs. 

One stock I love is MAIN.  If you look at the charts you can see its on fire, with no sign of slowing down.  I watched it gain 5% 4 out of 5 days last week.  What is even more interesting is when OIL prices are high causing the rest of the market to sell, it seems everyone buys into MAIN.
