IronPigs Stock Report: Pitchers

..

Remember, past performance is no guarantee of future success.  Or, something like that.  Either way, Kram is ready to advise you as you build your pitching portfolio.  Note that he is not qualified and not responsible for the final results.  Also, no wagering.

RHP Phillippe Aumont

Stock:  Rising, but volatile

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Weak Buy.

Strategy:  It’s just crazy enough to work.  Have Phillippe pitch more innings and it will minimize the effect of the occasional wild pitch, BB, or HBP.  It seems to have a nice effect on his mind-set, too.  He seems like he’s dialed into what he wants to do right now.  Could we see him start again?  It could happen.  I recommend picking up a few extra shares of his stock right now.  You won’t be sorry.

RHP Jason Berken

Stock:  Steady

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Hold

Strategy: Jason will be starting and long relieving as needed. He’s a veteran who knows how to get guys out, but I see a little Barry Enright in him, too–if he’s not “on” he could get hit around a fair amount.  If you have shares, hold them, but don’t add more to your portfolio just yet.

RHP Chad Billingsley

Stock:  Rising

Buy/Sell Recommendation: On the MiLB market:  Strong Buy.  On the MLB market: Hold

Strategy:  Add shares at MiLB market price, but once his stock switches over to the MLB exchange, hold to monitor progress.  Some volatility due to the fact that this stock may not be concerned as much with it’s own results.

RHP Paul Clemens

Stock:  Volatile

Buy/Sell Recommendation: Hold

Strategy:  As a starter, stock may not be poised to rise much beyond current level.  However, as a reliever performance may be enhanced somewhat if he’s throwing strikes.  Add shares only after effective relief role can be identified.

RHP Severino Gonzalez

Stock:  Slowly Rising

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Weak Buy

Strategy:  Performance may continue to improve in the short term but may be limited in how high it can go.  OK to add small amount of shares at this point, but watch carefully.

LHP Nick Hill

Stock:  Rising slowly

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Weak Buy

Strategy:  Just entering the market, OK to add a small amount of shares as long as performance is measured against mainly left-handed competition in the market.  Under-valued perhaps, at this time.

 

 

Jimenez

LHP Cesar Jimenez

Stock:  Falling

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Sell

Strategy:  Past performance in the MiLB market has been good, but recent signs indicate there may be trouble.  If you’re holding a large amount of shares you may want to divest at this juncture.  In the case of a rebound, could be a spot to short-sell as well.  Limit your exposure or risk the consequences.

RHP Tyler Knigge

Stock:  Falling

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Sell

Strategy:  This one might rebound but is currently in free-fall.  You might want to cut your losses at this point, or hold a small number of shares hoping for a come back.

 

 

loewen

LHP Adam Loewen

Stock:  Steady Rise

Buy/Sell Recommendation: Buy

Strategy:  Your portfolio would be well-served by adding shares at this early point in the season.  Stock should continue to climb or at least maintain value regardless of starting or relieving.

LHP Adam Morgan

Stock:  Rising

Buy/Sell Recommendation: Strong Buy

Strategy:  Expect continued strong returns and improvement in the near-term, and promotion to a higher market in the future.  All portfolios would benefit from having a strong position here.

 

 

murray

RHP Colton Murray

Stock:  Volatile

Buy/Sell Recommendation: Depends on your investment strategy

Strategy:  If you’ve got the stomach to ride out volatility, may be worth adding some shares.  If you want to maintain market value, you may not want your portfolio to be too exposed to shares here, at this time.

LHP Joely Rodriguez

Stock:  Rising

Buy/Sell Recommendation:  Buy

Strategy:  Shares should continue to add value even if position changes to bull pen.  This is a value play right now which should add both short-term and long-term gains–albeit modest.

RHP Seth Rosin

Stock:  Steady rise following a period of volatility

Buy/Sell Recommendation: Buy

Strategy:  This stock may be undervalued of late.  Monitor for volatility, but the expectation is continued, improved performance.

 

 

See you at the park,  invest at your own risk.
