    Carter Worthless....

     

    also, if I might note, this is how it goes on a stock like this...the thing trades endlessly in a range, most everyone gives up on it breaking higher, key analysts pan it on a run up.......guess what happens, big institutional money steps in, scoops up all the shares of everyone who doesn't believe it can go higher, and then the buying continues.......shorts suddenly realize they have been duped and have to scramble to cover.......

    ......this is why I say that we need to see a big move up in Sprint, $2 I would say, on extremely heavy volume, 350k+ shares, preferably 500k.......such a move reflects a transfer of ownership from weak handed trade oriented small profit retail and shorts over to strong institutional hands for a bigger run.....

    .....in other words the retail guy buys at $4.50 and is out at $5.00 and is happy with his $5000 profit on 10k shares.......whereas institutional money is buying in the early stages of the move at $5.00...and keeps on buying while retail bails......then the stock runs to $10 in about a week...and suddenly EVERYONE loves Sprint......institutional money starts selling happy with THEIR $50,000 profit for each 10k shares........LOL

    Of course it's difficult to say if the time for the big run is now...but there are some nice upcoming catalysts that would support the stock selling at $10 or higher

    you're post was a good one because it captured the frustration of the retail guy whose happiness over the $5000 profit is fleeting, as he watches the stock he just sold ramp up to twice the price......one really has to segment their holdings.....if it's a trade, it's a trade, if it's a hold for the big move, then it's a hold.......one can of couse use a hybrid approach, big institutional money, for instance, tends to hold a core position and sell some portion of it to keep averaging down awaiting the time for a big move...you can see this action in Fidelity's holdings of Sprint for instance.....they've traded on a portion a number of times.....
