    What is that color?

    by dordthawk Jan 20, 2016 2:09 PM

    Another one today, just like the last. A REALLY miserable market day always helps in that.
    It was a great day to buy. Hope you did too. Many thanks to the spineless and the shorts who will have to cover later.
    Does anyone think this company isn't making $?
    Best value going!

    Now THERE'S a very curious thing!

    A Seeking Alpha analysis article from before open on 1-26 led off this way:
    "Disclosure: I/we have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in CAI over the next 72 hours."
    Just now, I checked Google's coverage of this stock, and found an altogether different recommendation from Zack's posted THERE, compared to what was left at Yahoo coverage I cited yesterday after close. They're known for quick reversals of buy/sell recommendations, but this has to a record! And you saw yesterday's performance. I welcome them to explain.

    Disclaimer: I'm not saying there's any connection between these events. I'm just a "coincidence theorist".

    Today, we're seeing how this plays out in HFT, aren't we?
    (I really TRY not to be cynical, you know...they just won't let me NOT be)

    Big Red today, 'cause Zack's said so...
    Someone wanted it down and Zack's is always there to lend a hand in such situations, I've found.
    They have credibility, maybe, sorta, I guess...
    Please don't ask me to elaborate.

    but-
    ...Wow...

    And I forgot to thank UNXL vandal shorts for the usual generous thumbs down. They just LOVE me there!

    All the ups and downs have more to do with HFT workings than anything else. The big shots send things up and down on scant meaningful news of any kind. What news there is provides the excuses for all the pushing around. This stock's movements tend to be exaggerated all the time, and there's how you know. I think people are beginning to realize that it's not particularly dependent on China and it's not an oil stock, and yet, those are the usual excuses.

    Any sane person knows how underpriced and oversold this stock is, hardly representing the true worth of the company by any scale of measurement. When it gets too obviously unreasonable, it just can't be driven down any more. So you may have seen the bottom last week. Though already overweight with it, I have plenty of dry powder to double down in case that's not so.

    As you said previously, a longer time frame guarantees a win. The lower it goes, the less risk is associated with it. As I said previously, I wish I hadn't discovered this company until lately. That would have saved a painful ride down as shorts drove it.

  • Some pretty weak earnings posted by the railroads this week is making me a little nervous about our earnings in two weeks. I hope CAI's rail leases will continue to be strong. Thoughts?

  • It appears to be green, but I have not seen that for sometime. I am thinking my monitor might be broken. Hopefully we can finish green on a really bad day in the markets. Could this finally indicate a bottom???

    I hate it when I'm right.

    Moves like Friday's are terribly frustrating, but provide huge opportunities. I am buying all the way down. I try to invest with a three year time horizon, but I not afraid to take gains off the table. If you look out 3 years from now with CAI the downside is limited, but the upside is huge, especially if they maintain profitability through the "slowdown." I stinks losing 40% since the new year, but what an opportunity to buy insanely cheap shares.

    You absolutely correct. It's situations like CAI that proves to me that the market is rigged. BIG TIME

    There is no way that the market sees deep value in this stock but the market makers won't fill the buy orders until they are done flushing every single share out of the hands of retail. This is how the corrupt Wall Street machine works. The stock market is a high stakes poker game and we are the fish at the table.

  • -because I'm always right when the consequences of it are costing me a fortune.

    The economy's recovering, healthy.
    So why is the market nosediving?
    Because the biggest on Wall Street are shorting the indexes and control everything that's said about it.
    And what do they say?
    That getting cheap fuel because of overproduction of oil is somehow bad outside the oil sector.
    That China has vaporized from the planet and everything else is falling into the hole it left.
    That the whole universe revolves around China.
    And everyone behaves as if ANY of it was true only because THEY say so, and they have all the power.
    The crookedest, greediest, most ruthless and cruel people have it all already and are running the show.
    They write the rules under the general category of "you lose".
    And most lately, they're saying that what THEY did to the market is making everyone scared.
    I don't know about you, but I'm not scared at all.
    I'm not so easily led as all those sheep out there, so busy with their cell phones.
    I'm just *ANGRY* as hell.
    Their unlimited greed stops WHERE exactly? With total ruin?
    Eventually, it hurts the economy itself. It has so many times before, sometimes gravely.

    I've long said that shorting should be illegal, and you've JUST SEEN WHY in this young year and part of the last.
    Any arguable benefits of that practice pale when the good of the whole world is threatened.
    It DOESN'T test the value of stocks as they claim, but encourages manipulation and systematic theft.
    What overvalued, unprofitable glamor stocks have been hit THIS hard?
    They're still overpriced and unprofitable, but THIS stock's still WAY down despite its profit and value.
    It's complete bull.

    Once everyone dumps enough out of fear and they cover their shorts so conveniently, they'll keep buying, and this stock, perhaps this whole industry, bottoms and turns around quickly once they own most of that, too.
    When it does, only then you'll know what they considered a fair price to be, and WE will put the horsepower behind its rise, so they can get even richer.
    Maybe it has already, or maybe they need more, cheaper still.

    Your guess is as good as mine on that, but it ALWAYS works that way.

    Where I've been SO wrong here all along is in encouraging buying ever since it dropped so violently TO 15 or so some months ago. I still do.
    I just underestimated the greed. It turns out that it's WAY too easy to do that.

    Still is. The bottom WAS or IS wherever THEY decide it is.

    That makes everyone very uncomfortable, but not enough to change it, I've noticed.

    Good luck in the future, whatever THEY decide it will be.
    (The track record is not promising.)
    But good luck, all the same.

    (Thumbs down courtesy of vandals from UNXL board)

    You just can't make this stuff up.

    Grossly undervalued on steroids for a LONG time. It's "can you top this" for outrage every day.

    Who's got a good explanation for the sharpER drop in this than everything else?
    An entertaining one at least?

    BS 4 sure.

  • i waited for this opportunity. bought bleow 6 $ at .35 book value. this is dirt cheap. wait two years. do people really think that container traffic is shrinking to zero. world population is growing. traffic is growing and i guess at the moment despite these low steel prices and low interest rates there won't be much investment in new containers. year end at least 9$.

    Often, institutional investors don't play things too smartly. If they have gigantic capitalization, they might exit a large position in an individual stock at a loss without too much pain or notice. Other institutionals may find a low price irresistible and move in where an exiting player left off. Likelier in this lousy market is forced selling from margin accounts, from which stock may also be borrowed to short with. Margin players are usually idiots, but the reality of margin practices opens doors to hurt smarter operators, just the same, especially when volumes are low.

    Again, the current prices assume that China has disappeared from the face of the earth or something, and in that case, this company would still make money! It's not so dependent on it as its competition is, and China's growth has only slowed below claims its government makes, which no one ever trusts anyway. It won't stop growing.
    And then there's oil. Supply is in a glut for overproduction, not low consumption, but for some strange reason, none of the WS-controlled strategy hacks want to point out what a blessing that can be to commerce in general just yet, and apparently, no one else can think for himself there. So we wait for the herd to catch up.
    So those 2 narratives lead the incredibly stupid direction of the market. China won't ever stop growing, and low fuel costs help things, but they can keep making people act as if the opposite was true in both cases.

    It'll change. Everything does.

    Every day gets a little more unbelievable, and today is just one more. But this company has a better plan now than when it was going for 30 or more. It's lost more than half the value it had when I got my first small position in it, and I thought THAT was unconscionably low. It has to be coming back with a vengeance when it does come back, since it's worth so much more.

    Hits are being taken all over, and there's nothing I'm too thrilled about, other than that there are TOO MANY possibly great bargains now, good if the big Wall Street powers ever get done shorting the indexes and stop telling the financial reporters to say that the world is ending. My numerous thumbs down on messages here come from vandal shorts at the MB for another seriously beat-up stock, UNXL. They have a great improvement on touch screens in durability and resolution, if they're not snuffed out by some giants with too much invested in current tech in product lines they're too committed to.

    But this stock is like that one- something I wish I only found out about NOW, before it lost so much on me after I bought it too soon and high.

    Ah, if only I could see the future...

    Is part of the problem, that Yahoo keeps placing CACI stories under this symbol and traders don't seem to know the difference?
