    • Well, the stock sold off from 60! It's down people! Trading at good entry -MAcke even said it was a buy on Friday and he's very conservative = he hates WMT!!!

      Cramer has always been bullish on this one...and besides he doesn't count..
      It's gotten upgrades lately..what more do you want? Oh yah, bullish options trading on this one..the expectation is that it will go higher post ER than lower...imho

    • BTW, that was my advice for someone with NO current position who is an extremely cautious and nervous investor. If you were me you'd already have a large position in the stock and be planning on adding to it on any "fwd guidance disappointment". It's a long term winner for sure though "IMO"

      GITA!!!

    • Corrected post:
      If you're a long term investor (and bullish on the stock after researching it), I'd buy if it dips below $53 Monday with an "avg in" plan. "One type" of plan would be to do a 1/4, 1/4, 1/2 buy-in. If it goes down to $49-50 after ern's (I actually don't expect it) you could buy your 2nd 1/4. If it fell further to $45-46 (again, I don't see it) you could buy the last 1/2.

      Don't listen to anyone on these boards though (including me). ;-)

      GITA!!!!

      • ohya- You've been filled on 2nd of 3 fills (with a $51 basis) if you're on the plan per flyer's Sunday post. Count yourself lucky and hope for a fall to $46 for your last fill. Oh yea, I said don't listen so you may not have gotten those 2 fills (oh well, I tried):

        P.S. I went to a "strong" buy today below $50

      • This could be your chance to "at least" start averaging into gme per the post I'm replying to that states:

        "If you're a long term investor (and bullish on the stock after researching it), I'd buy if it dips below $53 Monday with an "avg in" plan.

        GITA!!!

      • If i was u i would buy monday, hold till Q4 earnings, sell & move on.

    • If you're a long term investor (and bullish on the stock after researching it), I'd buy if it dips below $53 again with an "avg in" plan. "One type" of plan would be to do a 1/4, 1/4, 1/2 buy-in. If it goes down to $49-50 after ern's (I actually don't expect it) you could buy your 2nd 1/4.

    • The best advice I've seen on the board has been too WATCH and listen. Monday a.m. will see a stock surge...but selling pressure could drive it down in the p.m.

      Assuming you control your trades---I would be prepared to follow the run-up and UNLOAD at the sign of weakness....remember...the trend is your friend!

      There is always another day and another stock...BUT...only limited funds...what have you decided???

      • Honestly, I wouldn't let this board or any other sway or make you decide one way or another. Only you are responsible for your money.

        What made you think you wanted to buy the stock in the first place? Do you have multiple reasons? Are they backed by tangible facts or worthy logic? Are you in it for the long-term or not? (If long, one earnings report should not necessarily make or break the deal...but many people are short term investors on here).

        More or less, review what made you think you wanted to buy and see if that reason(s) is still valid. After that, you have to decide if it's worth it at the current price. That subject has many opinions, but only you can decide.

        I'll only buy stock in a company where if I am wrong, I can say well I had great reasons, but bad timing or I was just wrong. I don't want to EVER have to say "I shouldn't have listened to that dolt on msg board/TV show/news article" if a deal goes bad.

    • pass...........too late , its going down from here

      • I don't own this stock, but i think they will blow out earning and raise guidance, Halo sold 3 million copies, guitar hero is huge. this is a stock to own 4 the next 2 quarters. Wish I would have gotten into it when that retarded analyst downgraded it so the big boys could get into it a little cheaper, but I was'nt paying attention to GME that day, plus I don't have the cash right know anyway.

    • I don't think both Cramer and Fast Money would stick there necks on the line if they were'nt expecting big things in the coming Qtr's.

    • IMO, Monday is too late to buy. I expect there will be a runup Monday with a letdown on Tuesday. SO, maybe you could buy Wednesday or Thursday. I'd be careful though.
