    BUY AND HOLD STOCK. 1 BILLION BUYBACK WILL WORK FOR YOU

    Buy and hold stock. 1 billion buyback will work for you. Stock can have some volatility, but extra $1 billion on the buying side will move it up, up, up. If company believes that stock is cheap, why not to follow and be on the same side as those who have all the information on their hands

    • A little bit of inside scuttlebut never hurts either . Especially after a few cheap pick up days in a row as of late before the gavel falls your way..............


      Stil....... Heavy Sell Side Imbalance at the close after a day of big box buying mixed in with the news pending, options expiring and a good price for a buy in by any accumulater at the low.

      You decide.

      Too high for me to buy today.

      Here's your scuttlebutt:

    • I am reading this board for the first time and have a question.

      The summary shows ttm earnings of $2.12, but when you look further it adds up to a lot more, more like $3.40.

      Can anyone explain why this is! I have noticed the same pheno with AT&T.

    • PAY ATTENTION !!!!!

      NEVER SIT ON YOUR HANDS! Esecially if you're counting on being in the good hands of an Allstate stock buyback....

      The last (3) days have seen large sell side imbalances at the end of the day. Days with good potential gone to hell wherever possible as usual and in a buy back climate...

      EXAMPLE WHY YOU DON'T SIT STILL:::::
      LAST DATE TO RE-ENTER (ALL) 5/17/10 @$31.87 per sh avg. Todays Closing Price $31.88 A Whopping Gain Of $00.01 per share!!!!! WHOOPPEE!!!!

      PRESENT AVERAGE THIS CONTINOUS RUN: $23.67 Per share avg. A Positive Gain Of $8.21 per share and it is not all sitting waiting to disappear either.



      Enough Said? If You can't understand that, get out and stay out of the Stock Market.

      I've pared down (3) days in a row and won't care about the Dollar Someone Else Might Make Holding. I Won't Lose the last 1 1/2. I'll be buying @ $29.00-$29.50-$30.00 and selling through here again if necessary (Where (ALL) has failed (3) times AGAIN @ $32- )or higher next week if meant to be....

      41 Buys
      3 Dividends
      38 Sales
      NOT EXACTLY DAY TRADING IN (7) LONG MONTHS OF STAYING ALERT.
      USE A SPREAD SHEET...... KEEP IT SIMPLE SET TARGETS AND IF NECESSARY SELL ON THE CLOSE EYES OPEN.

      PRESENTLY HOLDING:
      (5) Times Orig. Position Bal.
      40% Of Maximum Position Bal.
      180% Of Minimum Position Bal.

      $13 Last Go-Around Was'nt An Excuse To Hold To $35 And Back Down To $26 Was It?

      SEE YOU ON THE WAY UP OR DOWN...
      NO OPTIONS HERE....JUST REALITY
