The Cybersecurity Play That Doubled Once – Will Double Again

Not long ago, a relative of mine was the victim of identity theft. And I have to tell you that I really felt for the entire family.

The thief ran up nearly $20,000 in charges, opened new accounts and tried to open others.

And I can tell you that the frustrations over the losses (most of which ended up being covered) were dwarfed by the helplessness that came whenever new charges showed up – and the worry that was spawned by never finding out how the whole mess started.

As we watch the headlines about data breaches and cybercrime – and watch as the violations move closer and closer to home – those worries only escalate.

    Buy, Sell or Hold: Oracle Corp. (NASDAQ: ORCL) is The Last Cash Cow

    Today marks my 117th and final article at Money Morning.

    Viewed as a portfolio, I'm proud that those 117 calls are up on average. Before we get into my take on Oracle Corp (NASDAQ: ORCL) I'd like to take a look back over years.

    The 2010 picks have held up nicely with 12 positive and just six negative, for a 10 percent positive return on average, as of this writing.

    The hot long ideas of 2011 turned out to be El Paso (NYSE: EP) and Sturm, Ruger & Co. (NYSE: RGR). El Paso is up 48% while Ruger is up 78%.

    So far in 2012 the column's best sell idea, Petrobras (NYSE ADR: PBR), has dropped 15% since January 24. Our Jan. 30 "Buy" recommendation on Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is up 32%.

    It's been a great run and my thanks again to the entire Money Morning staff for the opportunity.

    Now, let's talk about the one company that Buy, Sell or Hold has not covered yet but I believe is deserving of the column's final recommendation: Oracle Corp (NASDAQ: ORCL).
