96 Stocks that Would Have Already Made You 50%+ this Year

TweetThis
With 2011 a third of the way complete, the S&P 500 has already surpassed the fashionable "year end" target of 1350 that most Wall Street strategists have put out at the end of 2010.  In constant dollar terms the S&P 500 is barely up for the year, but thankfully it is priced in U.S. pesos, so the nearly 1:1 correlation between dollars and equities has led to nominal gains. 

However in real terms you have to do better to offset the loss of your purchasing power to really get ahead.  Here are 96 names that have already gained at minimum 50% this year.  To keep out the low rent stuff, the minimum market cap is $300M, minimum stock price is $10, and average volume has been in excess of 200K shares a day.

On this list I've been tracking Sky-mobi (MOBI) since early February, but have not mentioned it on the website.  I did tweet about it yesterday saying it was up 80% in 10 days - not too shabby!   We mentioned Rediff.com (REDF) earlier this week which is now a "Groupon of India" play - due to one press release... and Travelzoo.com (TZOO) which is now a "Groupon-lite" with its 20M subscribers.  Sina (SINA) I've obviously been pounding the table since late last year, while Youku.com (YOKU) ["The Youtube of China"] has been laughing at my face since IPO with its ridiculous valuation.  Some old names like Acme Packet (APKT), Tibco Software (TIBX), Baidu (BIDU), et al are also here... along with a host of energy plays. And of course the silver ETF.
