You're both right, actually. Either word is fine. Substantial means of considerable impact. Substantive means meaningful or important. Both words work. But longs will never convince shorts not to be so, and vice versa. So while this is entertaining, it is pointless. Good Luck to you both!
No, you should go get a dictionary. Substantial means a lot. Substantive means meaningful. But, I'll save my breath for someone who knows the English language.
Oh, so you're a professional investor now? One who trolls the Yahoo Message Boards like a roach? Please. Don't bother with a 'substantive' response (by the way, the word is substantial).
Sentiment: Strong Buy
And most recently add STARBUCKS to that list. Actually stocks tend to GO UP not down after a stock split as more people can "afford" to buy shares. Of course a lot depends on the OVERALL markets immediately after a split.
I was going to respond substantively, then you said "chart garbage." There isn't a single investor in the world, professional investor, that would say take positions based solely on fundamentals. Selling pressure persists today, stay short.
And it's right back to flat. And, it had about 11k shares traded at 5:30--that's not extreme anything.
If you do not believe me , just check the pre market , extremely active even at 7:30 EST, pulling higher. These are smart shorts covering.
NKE is a darling of the street. You would find out that your short position will hurt you bad.
I'm totally blown away. A few guys were bragging about their winnings on the yahoo message boards, so I decided to go to the 'Penny Stock 101' website (just google or yahoo search for it) and signed up to their email newsletter. (There is no charge to become a member) Their last 6 NASDAQ-listed winners in this Fall 2015 season ran for +33%, +45%, +58%, +64% +72%, and +116% gains. Do yourself a favor and get to that website right now, and become a member. I guarantee u will thank me later.
Trying to find an edge in the markets? I have 3 words. ULTIMATE STOCK ALERTS! Google them and
sign up. You wont regret it. They only alert listed stocks (no otc) and their picks have been giving me average returns of around 15% per trade.
