Approaching Monday (Sept. 17th 2007) Trading Session

Sep 17, 2007 -

I've been in cash for a while (after liquidating my trades last Thursday).

This Monday, I will be conservative in my stock selections.

I've generated a watch list of stocks that I could be trading on Monday.

These stocks include: CVGW, VRTX, & BIIB.

Below excerpts taken from Google finance:

Through Calavo's three operating facilities in Southern California, distribution centers in Texas and New Jersey, and two facilities in Mexico, the Company sorts, packs and/or ripens avocados procured in California and Mexico, and prepares processed avocado products.
