Our latest email report, "Going Outside Your Investing Comfort Zone" provides a brief update to this week's Amazon (AMZN) and Google (GOOGL) post. Namely, the question of how to step up to the plate and buy such high-priced stocks as they cross the $100, $200, or even the rarefied $1,000 per share mark.

Here is an excerpt from our latest email update: 

"...Now, I am slowly retraining myself to act on my analysis, even when it comes to buying very "high-priced" shares such as AMZN, PCLN, etc. As I remind myself lately, you don't need to take on a very large position, just buy a few shares and participate in the uptrend..." 

"...While writing today's update, I had a chance to look back on a prior AMZN post and a big missed opportunity in the stock.

What could I do to remedy this lack of follow-through in the future?

Confronting my past inhibitions, I decided to take action and buy another "high-priced" stock. One that has popped up in my chart scans and is trading well north of $100 per share..."

You can read the full story and learn how I've started to move outside of my "investing comfort zone". You may be inspired to take action and redefine your own investing boundaries!

For those of you who are a little too young to recall it, this is a chart of InfoSpace at the height of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble in 1999-2001. This fallen angel soared to fantastic heights only to plummet back down to earth as the bubble, and InfoSpace's shady business plan, turned to rubble.

As detailed in our post, "Round trip stocks: Momentum booms and busts", InfoSpace rocketed from under $100 a share to over $1,300 a share in less than six months. 

In a pattern common to many parabolic shooting stars, the stock soon peaked and began a…

William O'Neil Interview: How to Buy Winning Stocks

Investor's Business Daily founder and veteran stock trader, William O'Neil shared his trading methods and insights on buying winning stocks in an in-depth IBD radio interview.

Here are some highlights from William O'Neil's interview withIBD:

William O'Neil's interest in the stock market began when he started working as a young adult. 

"I say many times that I didn't get that much out of college. I didn't have much interest in the stock market until I graduated from college. When I got married, I had to look out into the future and get more serious. The investment world had some appeal and that's when I started studying it. I became a stock broker after I got out of the Air Force."
He moved to Los Angeles and started work in a stock broker's office with twenty other guys. When their phone leads from ads didn't pan out, O'Neil would take the leads and drive down to visit the prospective customers in person.
