    more upgrades on GME

    From The Motley Fool:

    "Meanwhile, Credit Suisse�s Heath Terry has positive comments on Activision, while his colleague Gary Balter had some bullish words on video game retailer GameStop (GME).

    Balter raised his price target on GameStop to $65 from $50, citing �very strong momentum,� strong sales of Microsoft�s (MSFT) Halo 3 and recent console hardware price cuts."

    As you know Bear Sterns upgraded also last week.

    • Sold my GME about 3 weeks ago, still the same price. No catalyst for big growth - should do OK, but nothing to write home about. Aapl will double in a year, not so GME, IMHO.

      • "Aapl will double in a year, not so GME, IMHO."

        --> I agree gme won't dbl in a yr and I like AAPL's products but I'd still be protecting your profits by buying puts on the way up to protect against any possible issues with ole Steve. If he ever "had" to leave (or left on his own) the stock would sell off quite dramatically (more so than most companies). You could do well on the puts and still keep the stock for the eventual rebound. I'm just cautious because I still think he had more involvement with the whole backdating thing and where there's smoke... I'm not against AAPL at all, I'd just be sure to protect my downside with that one. I'll probably be wrong and nothing will "ever" happen but better safe than sorry IMHO.

        BTW, isn't having an ID like aapl_investor similar to having a "MOM" or "girlfriend name" tattoo? I.e. will you still use it when you're "not" an aapl_investor?


    • Imagine that. More est's approaching what I posted 2.5 wks ago (a few wks after my "Irrational Exuberance?" post)... It's amazing what you can come up with "on your own" when you run the numbers yourself. Don't "wait" for the upgrades/downgrades; "be" the upgrades/downgrades. I'm going back to a buy on the short term now but there still "could" still be a chance to buy under $55. That chance will probably only be around this next wk though & will be less likely as the Fri close approaches (IMO). Since I already have a few different GME positions I'll be selling more puts "if" it drops below $55-54. However, if it jumps to $65-67 I'll be selling Calls & buying back some puts.

      Wow, I must be full of myself to keep posting that I was ahead of most people with my analysis & associated price tgts huh? Actually, I really just want to encourage people to do "their own" analysis & generate "computation backed" price tgts "before" the analysts (who quite often give ratings that end up being completely wrong anyway). That's why I posted the simple example of calculating a "realistic" short/long term tgt on your own. As far as me being a jerk I'll borrow a "Roadhouse" phrase: "opinions vary"... GL everyone.

      GITA (Good Investing To All)!!!

      P.S. For anyone that's interested: I started getting back into some steel and banking stocks over the last 1.5 wks. I got back into banking just last Friday after the onslaught of ern's was over. They could see a bounce back rally this wk but if I get any 5% pullbacks from these levels I'll extend my positions in them. Some of the stocks I like here are C, BAC, NLY, NUE, and a few coal companies. I expect to start averaging into some home builders over the next few wks as well.

      • flyerd,

        Funny that you were the one who responded first to this. After I read the upgrade I remembered seeing somewhere (as far as the target price) before. I scanned through the message boards and read over a past post of yours quoting the same target price. I actually got a kick out of reading this replying post.
        As far as you being a jerk; I don't think you're a jerk, maybe a little full of yourself Lol. We'll replace "full of yourself" with "confident in your analysis."
        Anyways, thanks for past and present posts; please keep them coming.
