Granted, the Sirius trade was a bit of a gamble in potentially returning 15.8%. The stock was at a rock bottom $2.84 when we looked at it and it now rests at $3.21. We do not revisit Sirius (although there are still a lot of potentially lucrative trades available) because of the volatility.

Trades, for the most part returning over 6%, for the other companies are suggested in the second table. Many of the stocks are still being touted by analysts. Foster Wheeler, although it has experienced rocket ship 20%-plus growth since we last reported, is still on Jim Cramer’s short list of stocks.
China Mobile and China Aluminum may continue on their northward journey as analysts continue to promote investing in overseas markets.
